Police: Ohio DUI suspect drinks in front of cop
Police in northern Ohio say a man who was asked during a traffic stop whether he’d been drinking took a swig from an open can of beer and told the officer, “Yes.”
According to Cleveland’s WJW-TV, the Elyria police report says 25-year-old Stephen Supers was pulled over early Wednesday because the officer had observed him speeding.
The report says that after Supers took the drink in front of the officer, he failed a series of field-sobriety tests.
Supers is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday on charges including driving under the influence, driving under suspension and possession of marijuana.
A message was left at his home phone number in Elyria on Thursday. Court records do not list his attorney.
University to investigate sex-toy demonstration
Northwestern University’s president said Thursday that he is “troubled and disappointed” that a psychology professor allowed a couple to engage in a sex act involving a motorized sex toy in front of dozens of students, and he is calling for an investigation.
Hours after accounts of the Feb. 21 class appeared in local newspapers — including the university’s defense of professor John Michael Bailey’s decision to allow students to witness the act — Northwestern President Morton Schapiro strongly criticized the lecturer.
“I feel it represented extremely poor judgment on the part of our faculty member,” Schapiro said in a statement issued by the Evanston university.
A guest lecturer had been discussing bondage and sexual fetishes during Bailey’s human-sexuality class. According to published reports, a couple at the lecture decided that a video the students were watching on the female orgasm was not realistic and gave a live presentation involving the sex toy.
Schapiro said it did not matter that the incident occurred after the class was over, that attendance was voluntarily and that the students were warned of the explicit nature of what they were about to see.
Germans beat Brits at tea by selling “KaTEA” bags
A Hamburg company has beaten the Brits at their own game — a cup of tea — by selling “KaTEA” tea bags featuring Prince William and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton.
The bags feature the faces and torsos of the future royal couple with extended arms that drinkers can hang over the rim of their cups. They are the idea of Donkey Products, based in the northern German port city of Hamburg.
The bags are filled with German-grown black tea. They are being sold for a limited time as a pair within a greeting card.
