A truck carrying 44,000 pounds of Miller High Life was stolen from a rest area outside of Orlando, Fla., earlier this week, leaving driver Van Thomas stunned.

He'd driven a semi truck for years before he could afford his own rig, which he bought about three weeks ago to start his own business and make a better life.

Driving from Texas to Pompano Beach, Fla., Thomas was on his last stop before a delivery when his truck was shockingly stolen from a rest area.

Its cargo: Tens of thousands of beer bottles. That's living the High Life.

The good news? The truck and most of its cargo have been located.

The bad news? This theft is the fourth such robbery of its kind lately.

As he enters the final half of his second term, President Obama is inspiring very different reactions from the people he meets.

Last week, Gwyneth Paltrow flirted with Obama after apparently forgetting that she's 40 and not 14, and he's the president of the United States, not a member of One Direction.

Earlier today in Chicago, however, some dude named Mike had a very different reaction to crossing paths with the POTUS, and cautioned Obama against getting frisky with his girlfriend:

After Mike fires off his (hopefully joking) warning, Obama keeps it cool, and gets some laughs from Aia Cooper (the girlfriend) at Mike's expense:

A South African judge has sentenced Oscar Pistorius to a maximum of five years in prison in the 2013 culpable homicide case he was convicted in.

The former Olympic and Paralymic sprinter infamously shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp to death at his home, which he said was a tragic accident.

Pistorius' defense team opined that he would likely serve 10 months, or one-sixth of the term handed down by Judge Thokozile Masipa, in prison.

After that, he would serve the remainder under house arrest.

However, a spokesman for South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority said that "The Blade Runner" would likely serve 20 months behind bars.

Pistorius was found not guilty of murder, the most serious charge he faced, but was also given a three-year suspended sentence on a firearms charge.

Despite admitting to multiple instances of child molestation in the 1980s, Stephen Collins will NOT be charged by authorities in New York or Los Angeles.

It was recorded by Collins' estranged wife, Faye Grant, in 2012 when she and Collins attended a therapy session together.

In a disturbing, multi-minute admission, Collins talks openly about three girls between the ages of 10 and 13.

He says he exposed himself to all three and he forced one girl to touch his penis, which he described as having a "partial" erection at the time.

"We waited at the site where the team had found the body," said Rector, who also was a part of the ongoing search party, late Thursday evening.

Sean Johnson, a 19-year-old Brooksville, Florida resident, is accused of violating a defenseless creature sexually in one of the aisles of his local Walmart.

That creature is the small stuffed horse pictured below, with Johnson.

Florida Teen, Stuffed Horse

After stalking and identifying his would-be victim, Johnson pulled out his (if you know what we mean) and put it against the poor stuffed animal's chest.

He believes in foreplay, apparently. But soon things got freak nasty.

Johnson road that horse feverishly to completion, and having finalized his deposit, wrapped the animal inside a comforter he took from a nearby aisle.

Walmart's surveillance video system caught all of this. Per local police:

"Cameras captured Johnson putting the toy covered in ejaculate back on the store shelf next to other items. Those items were contaminated and deemed unsellable."

That's just a waste of a good stuffed toy and blanket right there.
