Iowa Mom Leaves Children At Home To Go To Oktoberfest
Another nominee for 'Mother of the Year' is among us. This is 'Crappy News' for Tuesday, 10/3/17.
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada- A divorced couple has finally ended their custody battle...over their HOCKEY tickets.
Donald & Beverley McLeod separated in 2015 after 35 years of marriage.
They'd also been season ticket holders for the Edmonton Oilers for the past 11 years, but the tickets were in Donald's name.
Donald said he was fine with paying Beverly $15,000 per month in alimony...but he wasn't giving up the tickets, too.
A judge ruled that Donald and Beverley must share the tickets, with Donald getting first pick of the games he wants to attend. [CTV News]
Is that the most Canadian thing ever? "Take my money, but leave my hockey alone!"
Lansing, MI- A man McFailed at getting his fast food.
A 57-year-old man was arrested after drunkenly screaming at a McDonald's drive-thru window. Police watched as the man sat outside of the McDonald's -- where all the lights were off and no one was inside -- before laying on their horn and cussing at the window for 15 MINUTES.
Cops, parked a few feet away, watched as the person then sped off from the restaurant, squealing their tires before going over a curb and onto a roadway. The police department responded with a Facebook post that said: "That is how you end up at the jail and the jail does not have any McFlurries. #McFailed" [MLive.com]
In all fairness...who HASN'T gotten drunk and yelled at the the drive-thru??
Johnston, IA- A woman went on a trip...and kind of overlooked a few details.
Police went to the home of 30-year-old Erin Macke last month after receiving a call that children were left unsupervised at the house. Officers found four children--between ages 6 and 12--and discovered that Macke had left them by themselves...and traveled to Germany for Oktoberfest.
Macke wasn't scheduled to return home until October 1st and had not made any arrangements for someone to watch her kids while she was gone. The Department of Human Services took the children and police ordered Macke to return to Iowa.
She's been charged with four counts of child endangerment. [Des Moines Register]
