Three more suspects have been taken into custody in the Boston Marathon bombings, city police said in a surprising development Wednesday.

The Boston Police made the announcement in a tweet this morning.

Boston Marathon Explosion

Offering no details, they said more would soon follow. Police spokeswoman Cheryl Fiandaca confirmed the tweet but referred all questions to the FBI.

Three people were killed and more than 260 injured on April 15.

Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a gunfight with police three days later. His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured and is in a hospital prison.

It was widely believed that the brothers acted alone in plotting and carrying out the terrorist attack, so the basis for the new arrests should be very interesting.

UPDATE: Prosecutors say Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazbayakov, 19, tried to conceal and destroy a laptop and fireworks belonging to Tsarnaev.

A super drunk Novi, Mich., elementary school principal was recently arrested for DUI, then proceeded to slip out of her handcuffs in the back of a police car!

It was a super effort by Kim Warren, 44, but what's a lot less cool is the fact that she allegedly violated the city's “Super Drunk” ordinance beforehand.

Long story short: She was PLASTERED!

Warren was arraigned under Novi's high-blood alcohol content DUI ordinance, which instills harsher penalties on those with a BAC of twice the legal limit.

Apparently, the principal qualified, at 0.17.

In broad daylight no less. Pretty unreal.

After two citizens called to report that a driver was swerving and pulled into the Deerfield Elementary School parking lot, ABC-WXYZ reported.

Carnival Guy

Gribhom was at a game called Tubs of Fun at a Manchester, New Hampshire carnival, with his eye on winning an XBox Kinect.

All he had to do was toss some balls in a tub, but when the balls kept popping out, he became frustrated and went home to fetch his life savings.

“You just get caught up in the whole ‘I’ve got to win my money back,'" he said.

For the record, a full XBox console plus Kinect combo pack retails at Best Buy for $299.99.
