A Florida mom was caught trying to shoplift groceries, only to end up with food and a ride home from a kind-hearted police officer, according to news reports.

Miami-Dade Police Officer Vicki Thomas was dispatched to a shoplifting case at a Publix grocery store, where a store manager led her to Jessica Robles.

“She was crying. I said, ‘Okay, what did she take?’ He pointed to a cart that was full of groceries,” said Thomas. “I’ve been on [the job] 23 years, and I went, wow.”

“She just filled up the cart and walked out, which shocked me,” the officer recalled. “She said, ‘My children were hungry.' And that immediately impacted me.”

Talk about scary Halloween houses. Imagine ringing a doorbell, calling out "trick or treat," and getting fat-shamed by the neighbor.

That's happening to children in Fargo, N.D.

A woman there has taken it upon herself to be the "village" and plans to pass out letters to the parents of children she deems overweight instead giving the kids candy.

Cheryl wants "to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight."

The letter pretty much speaks for itself, but says "Your child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some this Halloween season."

Cheryl believes that by giving candy to these children, she's contributing to the childhood obesity epidemic. That, in her mind, is unconscionable.

But fat-shaming children isn't. Okay then.

Folks get arrested for drunk driving all the time.

But only Dina Lohan blames a DUI on the paparazzi. And only Tony Caulder has a story like this:

The 51-year old Maine resident allegedly hopped aboard his lawn mower this month in order to make a beer run.

But convenience store employees turned the inebriated Caulder away due to his wobbly state, followed him outside to make sure he didn't get behind the wheel and then called the Kennebunk police after he rode away on his unusual vehicle.

Authorities tell WMTW-TV that they charged Caulder with operating under the influence after they tracked him down not long after his alcohol rejection.

Move over, Barneys New York. Macy's has also been slapped with a lawsuit by actor Robert Brown, who accuses the luxury store of racial profiling.

The New York Post reports that Brown, best known for starring opposite Sean Connery in Finding Forrester, has filled a civil lawsuit against Macy's.

He is also suing the New York Police Department, claiming that he was unlawfully searched by undercover police officers there on June 8, 2013.

Brown, 29, was stopped after making a purchase at the Sunglass Hut store located inside Macy's flagship location in New York City's Herald Square.

His story sounds very similar to that of the college student claiming he was arrested for buying a belt at Barneys in a story that went viral last week.

According to the Manhattan Supreme Court suit, the African-American Brown presented his ID to cops but “was told that his identification was false."

A Michigan man was killed in a car accident as he followed an ambulance carrying his sister, who had just committed suicide, according to a tragic report.

Brenda Tucker, 21, was at her family-owned bar early Sunday morning in Detroit when she took a gun, walked into a back room, and shot herself.

Her uncle, Eddie Falbo, said that his niece suffered from depression.

“She grabbed a gun, and I took it away from her head,” Falbo said.

“Others were talking to her. I came out the door and heard, 'pop.' It was terrible. There were about eight to 10 people in the bar ... everyone heard it.”

An ambulance took her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Then the story took another unexpected, unbelievably tragic turn for the worst.

Strangers wanting to touch your belly is something almost every pregnant woman goes through. It's often awkward and always a bit of a social faux pas.

Now in the state of Pennsylvania, it's also against the law.

A man is facing harassment charges for doing just that, and Keystone State lawmakers felt so strongly about it that they passed legislation to prevent it.

Yes, it is now illegal for a stranger to touch a pregnant woman's stomach without consent. Crazy as that sounds, it will likely dissuade a few people.

That alone makes it a win, albeit a bit of an overreach.

Don't ask us why a person would go groping the stomach of someone they don't know. It's like George from Seinfeld and his "fabric feel" move. Only worse.

Apparently this is a bad enough trend that one state had to formally stop it, in any case. So quit rubbing cute baby bumps of people you don't know ... cute as they may be.

You tell us: Anti-pregnant belly touching law ...


For a look at some we'd consider touching - with the stars' permission, of course - heck out some of our favorite celebrity baby bumps after the jump ...

Just when we thought it couldn't get any cooler than a moonwalking Michael Jackson comprised of human bodies, the Ohio State University marching band proves us wrong and becomes none other than the Man of Steel.

(Okay, Superman might not be cooler than Michael Jackson. But he's at least as cool as Michael Jackson.)

But don't just take our word for it.

Fans at this past Saturday's Ohio State-Penn State game were entertained during halftime by the sounds of Hollywood.

OSU performed selections from "Man of Steel," at one point splitting into two groups to form a falling building and the caped crusader who flew toward the impending wreckage and righted the structure.

Jessica Eaves was minding her own business, grabbing a few essentials at the grocery store when a man walked past her. Two aisles over, she realized her wallet was missing.

Eaves found a way to resolve the situation without getting the authorities involved.

Instead of calling the police or alerting the store's manager, Eaves confronted the man when she spotted him on a crowded aisle.

She said to him, "I think you have something of mine. I'm gonna give you a choice. You can either give me my wallet and I'll forgive you right now, and I'll even take you to the front and pay for your groceries."
