I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Detective has chance run-in with suspect

A Traverse City, Mich., detective ran into and arrested the suspect he was investigating for credit card fraud while the two were at a gas station.

Police said the chance encounter was lucky because more than a week had passed since a woman reported her credit card stolen April 12, the Traverse City Record-Eagle reported Saturday.

Detective Kevin Gay pulled the purchase record for the credit card after it was reported stolen and determined the suspect had used it at two gas stations.

The cases may look like taiyaki, bean paste-filled pancakes that are themselves gussied up to look like fish, or like steaks or pies, The Asahi Shimbun reported. They go for about $42 each.

An Ohio 18-year-old has apologized for his mug shot, which features him displaying his middle finger and grabbing his crotch.

The mug shot taken of Mitchell Peterman after he was arrested Sunday on charges of underage drinking and obstruction went viral online after it was posted to Facebook by Bath Township police, the Akron Beacon Journal reported Tuesday.

Peterman, a student at the University of Akron, apologized for his rude photo Monday and police took the picture off Facebook later in the day.

"I haven't even seen them. I don't even want to look at them," Peterman said of the pictures. "It's something I wish I wouldn't have done, something I wish I could undo. So, I'm just going to try and distance myself from it, learn from it and leave it behind."
