Do you realize how cute you were driving? Police stop tot

MALDEN, Mass.

A 1-year-old motorist has been pulled over for driving without a license – but he got off with a “cuteness warning.”

Police in the Boston suburb of Malden say they staged the traffic stop July 31 after spotting Grayson Salerno driving a red toy Mercedes convertible along a sidewalk.

An officer pulled his cruiser behind Grayson, switched on the blue flashing lights and pretended to write a ticket.

Photos and video of the incident have been widely shared on social media. Grayson’s mother, Cori Salerno, says she’s tickled the mock misdemeanor has made so many people smile.

It’s doubtful the young offender understands the charge. He was wearing a T-shirt with the inscription: “I have literally no idea what you are saying.”

Hawaii judge evicts Oahu nudists from rental house

HONOLULU

A Hawaii judge has ordered the eviction of the tenants of an Oahu rental home that advertised naked parties and gained the ire of neighbors.

The judge sided with the property manager, citing lease violations, multiple disturbances and running a business out of the Nuuanu home, Hawaii News Now reported recently.

Neighbors have complained of the so-called Freedom House’s loud parties, like naked yoga, and a fire that consumed a car. Neighbor David Brown said he frequently reported the parties to police.

An attorney for property manager Sakuma Realty said the home operated as an illegal business, which advertised online. The renters have denied that allegation.

“It’s just a website that I decided that I could have to have people come together,” tenant Brent Thomas said.

Tenant Amy Highmoor said the property manager and neighbors are retaliating because of their alternative lifestyle and her complaints about the home’s condition.

Lawyers for both sides will work out a moving date for the tenants.

Man launches horse-and-buggy ride-hailing service

COLON, Mich.

Look out Lyft, move over Uber: A southern Michigan man has launched a horse-and-buggy ride-hailing service.

WWMT-TV reports Timothy Hochstedler dubs his service “Amish Uber,” but he’s not affiliated with the San Francisco-based company. A sign on the side of his buggy reads “Amish Horse & Buggy Rides $5,” and he offers trips around the St. Joseph County community of Colon.

With no app, would-be customers have to literally hail the buggy for a ride.

Hochstedler says he enjoys the conversations with customers. And his horse is friendly – “a people’s horse.”
