A Louisiana man rescued his missing cousin, Bethany Arceneaux, by kicking in the door of the abandoned house where she was being held and shooting her abductor. 

Arceneaux, 29, was kidnapped by the father of her child late on November 6. A car belonging to Scott Thomas, her estranged ex, was found abandoned about a mile from the road. When police search crews turned up no results on Thursday, Areceneaux's family organized their own search party.

Arceneaux's cousin heard screams from inside an abandoned house and kicked in the door just in time to see his cousin being stabbed by Thomas. He shot and killed the man injuring his cousin.

The Lafayette Parrish police are calling the shooting justified, though the district attorney's office plans to investigate further.

Arceneaux was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for her injuries. She is expected to make a full recovery.

Mary Jaggers, a 58-year-old Florida woman, was arrested after allegedly calling 911 to report that there was too much drinking going on at her local bar.

Best of all? This was not a one-off occurrence.

Jaggers called dispatchers six times, reports indicate, to alert them to the stunning presence of intoxicated individuals at Artie's Sportsman Lounge in Hollywood, Fla.

She wanted all the bar patrons arrested, too.

Officers eventually arrested Jaggers for misusing the 911 system. During their investigation, they found hydrocodone and charged her with drug possession.

Which may explain a lot, come to think of it.

Crystal meth, aka the foundation of Walter White's empire on Breaking Bad, isn't a regular drug in the UK. But thanks to the popular show, and a shocking death, the illicit substance is garnering attention.

Romano Dias, 55, took what a drink of what he believed to be fruit juice and was dead within minutes. Dias' daughter, Katee, thought the beverage she found in a package not addressed to her which arrived at their home to be a health drink.

There's a reason it's a Federal offense to mess with other people's mail. A serious and deadly reason.

Katee arrived home one day to find a package on her doorstep. It wasn't addressed to her, but the street numbers were hers. Thinking there was a mixup and that a neighbor would come looking for it, she took the package inside. Six months later she opened it and eventually passed the contents on to her father.

The bottle was labeled a health drink, but it actually contained $55,000 worth of pure, liquid methamphetamine. Police believe the package was intended for a dealer as a way of introducing the substance into the UK.

At some point we'll stop freaking out about boobs, right? Please say yes.

Bobbi Bockoras, a breastfeeding mother in Alleghany, PA, is filing a suit against her employer Saint Gobain Verallia, a glass-bottling factory, alleging repeated discrimination and harassment because she needs time during the day to be able to express breastmilk for her infant daughter.

The claims against her employer are so appalling her legal team has taken up Bockoras' case pro-bono.

Provisions of the Affordable Care Act in effect since March of 2010 state that employers must provide nursing mothers with private, non-bathroom locations in which to pump. Saint Gobain Verallia first directed Bockoras to pump in the bathroom.

Then directed her to their First Aid room where she was heckled by male coworkers.

In some of the strangest parenting news we'll hear all day, a New York City father was deemed inept for refusing to give in to his 5-year-old's demands for McDonald's. 

The child threw a tantrum and the dad delivered an ultimatum: Choose another, healthier place to eat or don't eat at all. You can guess what the 5-year old chose, can't you.

What is it with parents these days wanting to feed their kids less junky food? Sheesh! Just give in to the siren song of the Happy Meal, Dad!

David E. Schorr put his foot down on October 30th and refused to take his son to McDonald's "because his son had been eating too much junk food."

Schorr, after being labeled "inept," calls himself "not a very strict father who rarely refuses his child McDonald's." And the one time he sticks to his guns this happens.

"Shut up. I mean that in the nicest way, but shut up!" Those are the words of a teacher in Villa Rica, Georgia to her classroom of nine-year-old fourth graders. "Get out of my face before I machete chop you."

Who does this woman think she is? Michonne from The Walking Dead? Even Michonne has a soft spot for kids!

Talk about needing to take a time-out! Yikes! 

Isaac Robinson sensed something was wrong when his son didn't seem okay even though he said school had been "fine" that day. After probing for more information, he learned that the boy had an issue with the way his teacher spoke to her class. 

We have an issue with it, too, young man. You're most certainly not alone.

Having trouble with your Lululemon yoga pants? Your thighs might be the problem. At least according to the brand's founder, Chip Wilson, in an interview with Bloomberg television. 

Even his wife gave him the side-eye for his douchey statements, and when your wife gives you the side-eye on national television, you know it's bad, right?

We don't need to hear her thoughts to see the good ol' "WTF" happening inside her brain.

This guy clearly studied at the Abercrombie & Fitch School of Customer Alienation. The company came under fire as recently as August for shunning their "plus-sized" customers. You know, the customers who wear sizes 10 and 12, which are the largest sizes the company offers at all.

(Newsflash: The average dress size of American women is a size 14. Average. Meaning middle. High school math class called. You failed, Chip Wilson.)

Laraine Cook, a Idaho high school girls' basketball, was fired from her job over a Facebook photo in which her fiance, Tom Harrison, holds her breast.

The photo was deemed "immoral" by school administrators.

"I don't feel that it's an immoral photo, and that's what the termination is based on," Cook told Local 8 News in an interview regarding the controversy.

The photo shows Cook and Harrison in bathing suits at a lake.

Harrison, who is a football coach at Pocatello High School, the same institution, was "reprimanded" for his involvement in the photo, but not fired.

Cook said the reason her fiance wasn't fired is because she was the one who put the photo to Facebook. In any case, she plans to fight the decision.

The super typhoon known as Haiyan made its way through the Philippines on Friday, blowing through 36 provinces and featuring winds of over 235 miles per hour.

Due to a loss of power in the region, it's been difficult to assess the damage, but multiple reports confirm the death toll has topped 10,000.

Moreover, officials estimate that 70 percent of the structures in some areas have been destroyed.

"People are walking like zombies looking for food," Jenny Chu, a medical student in Leyte, told Reuters. "It's like a movie."
