ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) – Two racecar drivers have been arrested after getting into a fistfight following a crash on an Indiana racetrack that ended with a police officer using a stun gun on one of the drivers.
A video posted online from Saturday’s race at Anderson Speedway shows one vehicle driving onto the second car’s hood following the initial crash.
The driver of the second car exits the vehicle and punches the other driver who’s still in his car. An officer jogs onto the track and uses a stun gun on the driver standing outside the cars. Both drivers are eventually handcuffed and led away.
Anderson Police Maj. Joel Sandefur said Monday that the wreck and fight weren’t staged. He says the drivers’ names and details on possible charges weren’t immediately available.
PHOENIXVILLE, Pa. (AP) – A Philadelphia-area mayoral candidate says he was serious when he vowed to investigate the use of drug-sniffing bunnies if elected – even though it appears to stem from an internet hoax.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Republican nominee Dave Gautreau broached the idea Thursday at a Phoenixville mayoral forum.
The candidate told the newspaper he had been told about the idea at a gathering and thought he had confirmed with someone in Lancaster the rabbits were in use there.
Last year, the idea surfaced in an April Fools’ post by Amherst, New York, police and on a satire page called People of Lancaster.
Gautreau said in a since-removed Facebook post he takes his mayoral run seriously and is looking for “creative ways” to fight the war on drugs.
