News of the Weird
Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
Testifying against a San Bernardino, Calif., strip club accused of promoting prostitution, licensed private investigator Duane Minard (who was working on contract for the police) admitted that he went too far in gathering evidence. He said he had paid a woman $300 for a legitimate dance in a private room, but by the time she had “finished,” he owed her $500 more for “additional” services. He testified that he knew he wasn’t supposed to go all the way, but “I didn’t have the time to clear my head,” he said. “I was aroused. I was waiting for the cavalry to come over the hill.”
During an eight-day period around New Year’s in the Chicago area, thieves stole tractor-trailers filled with, respectively, broccoli and asparagus.
