AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Spain, a chemistry student has been arrested for plotting an attack against anti-pope protestors. All the protesters are upset over Pope Benedict the XVI’s visit to Madrid that is being paid for by their tax dollars. And that student allegedly plotted to poison those people with gas. Authorities say the suspect is from Mexico and is in town for World Youth Day celebrations. An event hosted every 3-years by the Catholic Church.
Germany – Serial car arsonists are on the loose and so far, they've set fire to almost 30-cars in Berlin. The arsonists have been targeting mainly Mercedes, BMW’s, and Audis. It’s believed these people are mimicking the widespread lawlessness that went on in London last week.
United States – A bizarre scene in New York, police say the driver of a sanitation truck somehow lost control of the rig. The rig plowed through the wall of a parking deck. The driver is ok.
And staying in the United States, hunters made one huge catch to kick off alligator hunting season in Alabama. The big boy was a whopping 11-feet and 2-inches and came in weighing 300-pounds. The hunters say it took them about an hour to pull the gator into their boat.
Australia – Drunk driving on a motorized beer cooler cost one man his driver’s license. "Few drinks led to a few more. By the time we built it, it was quite late. So we thought we'd go for a bit of a test run." That test run was halted by police. The drunk blew in at twice over the legal limit and he no longer has a driver’s license. Let’s keep that in mind while you’re tailgating for the LSU games.
