A man went on an unusual pre-Christmas rampage that allegedly involved him exposing himself to children, stealing an officer’s Taser and then attempting to get into a police car.

Lunarness Mendoza, 32, was eventually caught and arrested on charges of assaulting an officer, indecent exposure and theft.

He had reportedly taken the Taser from a female police officer last Monday in Portland, United States, after she had responded to reports of him exposing himself.

Luckily the police woman was able to remove the Taser’s cartridge before the man grabbed it, which reduced its threat.

The officer then called for backup as the suspect tried to unsuccessfully get into her locked patrol car.

The officer was treated at hospital for minor injuries.

Police say several people appeared to be filming and photographing the encounter but did not stay to talk to police.

Woman threatens pet owners who let dogs poop on her lawn with strange punishment

Dog poop sign

A woman annoyed with finding dog poop on her lawn has decided to fight fire with fire.

The homeowner, who only gave the name ‘Annie’ when signing off on her angry letter, threatened to find the dog’s owner and ‘take a dump on their doorstep and car windshield.’

The sign was placed on her lawn in Los Angeles and will definitely make people think twice before allowing their pets to take a number two there.

The sign said: ‘To the person that lets their dog poop on our lawn and doesn’t clean it up: First of all it’s beyond rude. We live here and pay a lot of money to live here and its not a toilet.

‘Secondly, if you can’t pick up your dog’s poop, you shouldn’t have a dog. And lastly we are watching you.

‘The next time you let your dog poop on our lawn and don’t pick it up, I will personally follow you back to your home, wait until you get inside, pull down my pants and take a huge dump on your door step and on the windshield of your car. Love, Annie.’

After being named Briton of the Year by the Times this week, Nigel Farage has been put forward as a candidate for another – and rather different – accolade: Rear of the Year.

The annual competition, which counts Rachel Stevens, Anton du Beke and Carol Vorderman as previous winners, celebrates the ‘most stylish and fashionable celebrity rears’.

And although the winners have already been named as former winner Carol Vorderman and Olly Murs, users on Twitter have started a campaign for Mr Farage in the wake of his Briton of the Year accolade.

Unfortunately for Mr Farage, his backers seem to be saying it is because they think ‘he’s an arse’.

Man hospitalised after downing carton of eggnog in 12 seconds

Most of us will have indulged in some seasonal excess at some point this Christmas- but perhaps not to the extent of this man, who was hospitalised after downing an entire carton of eggnog in 12 seconds.

Ryan Roche, from Utah, America, spent three days in hospital fighting double lung pneumonia after downing the festive tipple at his work Christmas party.

Shortly after consuming the drink, he began to feel its severe effects.

He told Fox News: ‘I couldn’t get air.

‘I started clearing my airwaves, and I basically was aspirating eggnog’.

His wife, Emily Roche, was filming the contest and immediately noticed that her husband was struggling to breathe.

She said: ‘It was scary. We had no idea what was happening’.

He was admitted to hospital later that evening, and recovered a whole 72 hours after the ill-advised stunt, with his wife desperately hoping that he would recover in time for Christmas.

She said: ‘When he was in the hospital, I’m like, don’t let this ruin Christmas, whatever you do. We’ve got two weeks, pull out of this’.

Despite being hospitalised, Mr Roche won a $50 gift card, and has admitted that he hasn’t ruled out trying Eggnog in the future.

He said: ‘People ask me “are you ever going to drink eggnog again?” Maybe someday I’ll venture out and have a sip’.

Police tweet vines of cute puppies that will grow up to be fearsome crime fighters

Cute puppy

These puppies are really cute, for now (Picture: West Midlands Police)

These puppies may look cute now but wait until they get older and they’re chasing you down a dark alley way.

The animals are currently being trained by West Midlands Police and will eventually be able to locate drugs, firearms, cash and explosives.

‘CUTE ALERT – on a scale of 1-10 how cute are our police pups?’ West Midlands Police wrote on their Twitter account.

‘Before long they’ll be four-legged crime fighters like this!’

Dog collar video captures what home alone pet get ups to

When a man attached his friend’s GoPro video camera to his dog’s collar, he might have expected some food and sofa-related high-jinks.

Unlike Home Alone’s Kevin McCallister, this dog does not destroy the family home or tick off everything normally prohibited.

Instead the dog appeared to persistently pine for its master looking through different windows to see if he is returning.

The poor dog proceeded to then whine pitifully while snuggling up to clothes piled on its owner’s bed.

Let us just say this faithful pet prefers company other than its own.

This man has set a world record for typing with his nose

Typing a sentence with your nose sounds like an impressive achievement at the best of times.

But when you manage to break a Guinness World Record by typing 103 words with your snout in 47.44 seconds, it’s incredible.

Mohammed Khursheed Hussain, 23, from Hyderabad, India, managed the impressive feat after enduring six-hour practice sessions every day for three years.

When it came down to the record-beating attempt, Mr Hussain was instructed to use his hooter to type the phrase: ‘Guinness World Records has challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time’.

It’s not the first impressive keyboard-related feat that Mr Hussain has achieved. He also set the world record for typing the entire English alphabet with his fingers, achieving a time of 3.43 seconds in February 2012.

Shoppers in a busy commercial street were left covered in human excrement after an overfilled septic tank exploded.

‘And then I realised that a tank filled with disgusting brown liquid had exploded, splattering it all over the street and the people who were shopping or walking past.’

Police spokesman, Cai Chin, told reporters: ‘No one suffered physical harm, but many of those covered sought medical attention for fear that chemicals used in the cleaning process or indeed diseases from the sludge could cause harm to those affected by the blast.’

A spokesman for the company which collects and stores the waste refused responsibility, claiming it was a technical fault with the truck itself.

10 animals that hijacked the internet in 2014

It’s definitely been the year of the animal (Picture: Metro)

There were plenty of heartwarming, inspirational and outright insane stories involving animals this year, so picking just a few was tough.

But these cute creatures won out in the end because they showed great character in very testing (and weird) times.

10. Chris P Bacon, the piglet who has wheels instead of back legs.

The piglet known across the internet as Chris P. Bacon examines his new wheelchair on the office floor of veterinarian and owner Len Lucerno in Clermont, Florida February 13, 2013. The piglet's hind legs are deformed and Dr. Lucero had fashioned a wheelchair out of K'nex toys to help the piglet walk. Chris has outgrown his second wheelchair, and will soon grow into his new, more permanent and rugged model.
