She’s Swinging For The Fences

A New Jersey woman is making a pitch for payment after being hit in the face with a baseball during a Little League game. And the curveball? She’s suing the young boy who threw the ball.

Elizabeth Lloyd is seeking more than $150,000 in damages to cover medical costs stemming from the injury she received two years ago during the Little League game. She’s also seeking an unspecified amount for alleged pain and suffering.

Lloyd was sitting at a picnic table near the field when she was hit with the ball. Catcher Matthew Migliaccio, who was 11 years old at the time, was warming up a pitcher and overthrew the ball. (Huffington Post)


He Has A Head For Protesting

A man in China is really sticking his neck out for his beliefs.

The 62-year-old man is protesting plans for a developer to take over some land — by burying himself up to his neck in the dirt.

The man had planted more than 4,000 trees over the last 30 years to restore a forest near his village. When builders said they wanted to use the land, he refused.

The next day, every single tree had been chopped down.

He says he won’t leave until officials rule that the land is his. (Orange.co.uk)


A Dopey Deposit

A Florida woman was arrested after she included some extra green in her bank deposit.

Kimberley Kelley used the drive-thru to make a deposit for the Dunkin’ Donuts store where she worked − and mistakenly included a baggie of pot in the deposit bag.

When she realized her error she asked the teller if she had left anything else inside the bag besides the cash. The teller confirmed her suspicions − but told her she couldn’t have that part of the deposit back.

An officer arrived at the bank and arrested Kelley after it was determined that the baggie contained 55 grams of marijuana. (St.Augstine.com)
