After a night of drinking, a University of Florida student broke into a house and decided to take a nap with a broom, according to police.
Christian Chambers Kobes, 20, used the broom to break a window of a Gainesville home at about 5:10 a.m. Thursday, and when he woke up, he told police he had been drinking earlier that night and no memory of breaking into the house.
Phillip Clingman got more than he expected when he repossessed a vehicle from Smyrna. He found a hand grenade and two long guns inside. Officer Dave Norton took the grenade and guns for safekeeping.
Former Met and Yankee pitcher Dwight Gooden has had several run-ins with the law. In August 2005, he was charged with a felony after fleeing from Florida police during a DUI stop. He turned himself three days later, only to be charged with misdemeanor DUI and resisting arrest. He was held without bail. Gooden was also charged with misdemeanor domestic battery in March. According to official reports, he punched his girlfriend in the face. In February 2002, the former All-Star was charged with drunk driving; in June that same year he received probation after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving.
