An unarmed man seeking help after a car crash over the weekend was shot 10 times by the Charlotte police officer who's now charged in his death.

Officer Randall Kerrick fired 12 times at 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell early Saturday while responding to a breaking and entering call, reports say.

Ten of the bullets hit the former Florida A&M University football player. Kerrick was charged with voluntary manslaughter and will appear in court Tuesday.

At a news conference, family members said that Ferrell had moved to North Carolina to be with his fiancee about a year ago and was working two jobs.

They said he was likely unfamiliar with the area he was driving when he crashed early Saturday. Ferrell's mother said she was praying for Kerrick.

A man in Wales was arrested for getting naked and attempting to have sex with a Land Rover. Even more incredible? He goes by the self-proclaimed nickname "Hotcock."

Daniel Cooper, 24, was convicted of of indecent exposure.

Hotcock will not serve jail time, but has been banned from going outside between 7 p.m.-7 a.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the next three months.

The order stems from an August 18 incident where Cooper was caught on surveillance video getting naked and then grinding against a blue 4x4 Land Rover Discovery.

Cooper later told the court that he was so drunk at the time, he did not even remember the auto-erotic encounter (that was just too easy) until he saw the video.

The Land Rover was not available for comment at press time.

A Charleston, S.C. couple says their family dog sniffed out abuse by a babysitter who was supposed to be caring for their seven-month-old son.

Benjamin and Hope Jordan moved to the area in 2012 and hired Khan to watch their son, Finn. Khan came up clean in a background check, they say.

"We felt like Alexis was a good fit at the time," recalls Benjamin Jordan, but he says he soon started to get bad vibes courtesy of their pet dog Killian.

"About five months into her being our baby sitter, we started to notice that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door."

"He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her."

An infant elephant was inconsolable this week after his own mother actually tried to stomp him to death in a Chinese zoo.

According to Metro U.K., the mother gave birth to her son in August and tried to step on him soon afterward. Hoping it was an accident, veterinarians treated the calf and returned him to his parent… only for the same violent incident to take place again.
