Police called for shot woman find Halloween zombie
Police in Alabama were called to what looked like a woman shot dead in her car but found a Halloween reveler they described as drunk and passed out in a bloody-looking zombie costume.
The news site Al.com reports that a passer-by called 911 in Birmingham on Thursday morning after seeing the woman slumped over her steering wheel at a traffic light.
Police say officers roused the woman and removed her from the SUV. Authorities say she was handcuffed and taken to the city jail on a DUI charge.
A photo of the woman by Al.com showed fake blood covering much of her torso as she was apprehended. Details on her identity weren’t immediately available.
SC sheriffs offering amnesty for explosives
Sheriffs in five South Carolina counties offered people a chance to turn in explosives, no questions asked.
Officials in Abbeville, Anderson, Greenville, Oconee and Pickens counties set aside last week as Explosives Amnesty Week.
People in those areas could call their sheriff’s office to have any explosives, ammunition, weapons, bomb materials or military ordnance removed from their property. Certified bomb technicians responded to remove and destroy the hazardous materials.
Dispatchers requested information about the materials to be collected, including the address where the materials were stored.
Callers weren’t required to give their names, and no criminal charges related to hazardous materials reported or collected were filed against people who participated.
