Topless Passenger Attempts To Rob Uber Driver

A Louisiana couple is accused of attempting to rob an Uber driver that the woman distracted by being topless.  Police say 24-year-old Anthony Kennedy and 22-year-old Rayna Fillios were arrested Saturday after the Uber driver gave his cell number to Fillios after providing a ride for her.  Fillios called him later and asked him to come over.  She was topless when she opened the door. She grabbed his arms, pulled him close, kissed him and bit his tongue.  Kennedy then appeared with a knife and told him to hand over all of his money. When the victim refused, Kennedy punched him.

Florida Iguanas Frozen In The Perches

It’s so cold in Florida that iguanas are literally freezing and falling from their perches as temperatures dipped below 40 degrees last week.  That’s chilly enough to immobilize green iguanas common in Miami’s suburbs.  Iguanas get sluggish when temperatures fall below 50 degrees.  While they don’t freeze to death, they also don’t move until it warms up.  Kind of like humans sometimes.

Man Takes Shortcut Across Miami Runway

A man was spotted running across a restricted area of Miami International Airport on Monday.  He said he was merely trying to take a shortcut to get to a terminal.  Miami-Dade police said they received a call about a man dressed in red wandering around on one of the runways.  Police detained the man within minutes.  The man told police that he was dropped off at the wrong place at th e airport.  When the man realized he was in the wrong place he decided to jump over a fence to get to where he needed to be.  He later claimed he didn’t know how to read so big signs meant nothing to him.
