By trying to avoid controversy for a friend, Erin Cox finds herself in the middle of some herself.

This 17-year old Andover, Massachusetts high school student recently received a phone call from a pal at a party, saying she was drunk and needed a sober ride home.

So Cox got into her car, drove to the sight of the shindig and was there when police officers arrived on the scene.

Despite a cop vouching for Cox's sobriety, Erin's school demoted her as captain of the volleyball team and suspended her for five games after learning she was simply at the party.

Having an airline lose your luggage sucks.

Having airline employees deface your luggage with a gay slur REALLY sucks.

But this was the unfortunate circumstance in which a passenger on Jetstar (a discount subsidiary of Qantas in Australia and New Zealand) found himself over the weekend.

The unnamed customer Tweeted a photo of his bag after it came through the luggage carousel, writing that he was "utterly disgusted" to find it vandalized with the words "I AM GAY" scrawled over the entire front center.

I Am Gay Luggage Insult

A father of two, the man blogged that he thought he had "thick enough skin to ignore the leering" that resulted from this incident and added:

Zombies are all the rage these days. Seriously, have you seen the ratings for The Walking Dead premiere?!?

But these members of the undead aren't just taking over the television world. They're infiltrating our love lives as well!

Or at least the love life of Nick Showman and Stephanie Hill, a couple in Phoenix who recently got engaged inside a haunted house. For real!

How did pretend zombies play a role in the proposal? Did Stephanie have any clue it was coming? Was this the best idea ever or the absolute worst? Watch the following video for more:

And then compare this proposal to other viral sensations, such as the Pinterest-stealing proposal and, of course, this classic flash mob proposal.

Very sad news today out of Florida:

A six-year old boy passed away after drowning in a crowded swimming pool aboard a Carnival Cruise ship.

Carnival Cruise Line

Detective Javier Baez of the Miami-Dade Police Department told reporters that the incident took place when the child was playing with his older brother, as the unidentified victim was "found at the bottom of the pool."

Attempts to administer CPR were unfortunately not successful.

Authorities are talking to witnesses and speaking today with the boy's family, which hails from Winter Garden.

This tragedy comes nearly two years after 32 people died in a Carnival Cruise ship sinking off the Italian coast in early 2012.

See, it's not so bad living in New York City.

Yes, you need to deal with the occasional rude police officer. But you also get to buy original pieces of art for really cheap prices!

Over the weekend, a British graffiti artist who goes by the name "Banksy" caused quite the stir in the Big Apple, setting up a booth in Central Park and selling items that some have valued in the thousands for a mere $60.

He teased the sale on his website and warned readers that it would be a one-day only event.

An elderly individual was manning the stall on Saturday and handing out hugs to patrons, but his identity remains a mystery.

Banksy refuses to give his real name, despite his art turning up all over New York and social media over the past few weeks.

To protect, serve... and cause a scene?

In a video that was shot this summer by a street vendor in New York City - and which has just gone viral - a police officer shows extreme disrespect for this ice cream seller by doing some kind of dance in front of him and then cursing him out.

It's unclear what prompted this outburst by the NYPD member, but the vendor says she had been harassing him for weeks and he finally chose to secretly record her lewd actions as proof.

Watch now and shake your head at the odd/ugly display. This is New York's finest?!?

A 55-year old woman who took part in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K on Saturday ended up hanging on for dear life after she got stuck on an open drawbridge in Fort Lauderdale.

The participant - clad in pink - was reportedly making her way home after the event when she somehow ended up dangling from this apparatus, 22 feet above ground.

Onlookers say the unidentified female remained calm while firefighters were called in and used a 24-foot ladder to climb to her rescue.

It's unclear how the woman ended up in such a precarious position, considering there's a No Trespassing nearby and the bridge makes a loud signal before rising up from the river.

The girl known only as "Baby Hope," whose abused, decomposed body was found in an ice chest by the side of a New York roadway in 1991, has been revealed.

She is 4-year-old Anjelica Castillo, and her alleged killer has finally been arrested as well, 22 years later: Conrado Juarez, 52, is the girl's cousin.

He has been charged with murder.

Remarkably, detectives from the New York Police Department's Cold Case Apprehension Squad never stopped searching for answers in the case.

Even more remarkably, they eventually got them.

Each year, on the anniversary of the July 23, 1991, discovery of her body, they canvassed neighborhoods, handing out fliers and asking for information.

It was an anonymous tip called in after the latest canvass in July 2013 that helped crack the case at last, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

Multiple sources involved with the investigation state that the victim in the Chicago alley is Josh Marks. Officers have also recovered a nearby weapon.

It's a sad and tragic end for this bright talent.

Marks was arrested for assault by University of Chicago cops this summer after an incident in which he allegedly punched an officer and tried to grab his gun.

Move over, Anti-Semitic Elmo. You've got bigoted company.

Earlier this month, Stan and Claudia Gocman sat down to finally watch the unedited video of their wedding day, following a series of snafus in which photographer Anthony Aurelius first sent the wrong video and then sent one with many important moments missing.

So the newlyweds actually shelled out extra money for this special footage, only to recoil when they heard a series of anti-Semitic comments made by someone off camera.

“Some of the Jewish women are very beautiful to look at," said a man, believed to be Aurelius. “But I can tell you, they’d be right f-cking cows... they’d be a pain in the arse."
