We're Registered at the City Jail

It didn't turn out to be a happy wedding day for a Centerville, Utah, couple.

While buying makeup last Saturday for a wedding later that day, the Salt Lake Tribune reports, the maid of honor dropped a bombshell on the bride.

She'd slept with the groom the night before.

"Obviously, this was upsetting to the bride-to-be," Centerville Police Lt. Paul Child told the newspaper.

A fight broke out, the cops came, and the would-be bride was cited for assault.

After the dust settled, the bride, 20, said she "wanted to have a little chat" with the groom.

"We decided it would be best to have an officer accompany her," Child told the Tribune.

Police quickly found that the groom, 19, had several outstanding warrants for his arrest. He was hauled off to jail.

Child said the would-be husband and wife never did get a chance to speak, and the maid of honor was stranded without a ride home in the Target (search) parking lot where the fight took place.

The Tribune asked if the wedding was canceled.

"I can only assume so," Child replied.

They Can't Fold a Map Back Together Either

Homing pigeons (search), long renowned for their amazing navigation skills, may get around the same way humans do — by following the road.

Oxford University (search) scientists found that while the pigeons do sometimes use the sun to find their way, more often than not they simply fly along highways and railroads, reports the BBC.

"We followed some which flew up the Oxford bypass and even turned off at particular junctions [exits]," Dr. Tim Guilford told the BBC. "It's very human-like."

Researchers placed tiny cameras and global-positioning systems on pigeons. When the data were analyzed, said Guilford, the results were "plain to see."

Guilford said the pigeons did use the sun when over unfamiliar ground.

"But when they do follow a road," he said, "it's so obvious."

Bovine Toupees Get Cows Booted

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Three livestock exhibitors at last year's Ohio State Fair have been disqualified for allegedly outfitting their Holstein cows (search) with hairpieces.

State Fair inspectors said the three glued or painted hair from another part of the animal or from another animal to create straighter backs on the cows and enhance their appearance in the show ring.

Kreg Krebs and his brother Kenneth of Fredericksburg, and Scott Long of Clayton, Mich., could be required to forfeit all winnings, said Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Melanie Wilt. The winnings had been withheld by fair officials.

Wilt said state inspectors at the fair discovered the fake hair when the cows were leaving the show ring on Aug. 10.

The men have 30 days to request a hearing in which they could present their cases to an independent hearing officer.

High School Girl Spotted at Hooters

GUYTON, Ga. (AP) — A high school senior's choice for a work-study job was a little too racy in the eyes of her superintendent.

Laura Williams, 17, took a job about a month ago as a hostess at a Hooters restaurant, the national chain known for its scantily clad waitresses.

Superintendent Michael Moore has asked Williams to quit, saying the job is not appropriate for a work-study program.

"I have questions in my mind because of the advertising and sexual connotations," Moore said.

But Larry Williams said he does not mind his daughter working at the restaurant. He planned to appeal to the school board and argue that his daughter should be allowed to keep her job.

"I went to Hooters for an hour, and six families came in for supper during that time," he said. "This is a chain restaurant with high standards."

As a hostess, Laura Williams wears a neck-high T-shirt and long khaki pants and does not serve customers alcohol.

"A lot of people have misperceptions about Hooters, but we try to appeal as a fun place for everyone," said Aaron Sharp, the restaurant's manager. "We give balloons to children; we have a kids' menu. ... This is not an inappropriate atmosphere for a family meal."

At Least They Didn't Call Him 'Janet'

BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) — A Biddeford couple let the world know their football team allegiance when they included "Patriot" in the name of their son who was born on Super Bowl game day.

Nathan Morris, 25, and Kelly Belanger, 20, named their son Logan Al-Patriot Morris after the Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers, 32-29, in the Super Bowl on Sunday. The "Al" in the name is in honor of Morris' sister, Alicia.

Logan was born at Southern Maine Medical Center at 7:32 a.m. and was in the hospital room that night when his parents and friends watched the game on TV.

"I showed him the game and what football food is supposed to be," Morris said.

Belanger said she had to be persuaded to agree to the name, but in the end thought it would give Logan an interesting story to tell when he's older.

Morris said they waited until the game was done before officially naming Logan to make sure the Patriots won the game.

"It wouldn't have been good if they had lost," Morris said.

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — A man who drove an old car into a pond in a failed attempt to jump over it, Evel Knievel-style, has been sentenced to 270 days in jail.

Wayland Justin Williams, 24, of Sheridan, pleaded guilty Tuesday to property destruction, dispensing offensive matter in a pond and abandoning a motor vehicle on state land.

Circuit Judge John Sampson fined him $690. For driving through a fence, Williams must also pay $200 to a rancher who holds a state permit to graze livestock on the land.

According to court documents, Williams polluted the bass pond with oil and gasoline when he drove the old Buick into it.

States the Sheridan County sheriff's report: "Wayland claimed he had tried to jump the pond with the green Buick, and that he would have made it had he built a ramp."

The incident and other damage to the 8,000-acre tract of state land prompted the state Board of Land Commissioners to close the area to motorized vehicles Jan. 1-July 1.

Sheriff Dave Hofmeier was pleased with the sentence.

"It's also nice to see a severe punishment for damaging our state lands. This will be a message to the rest of the public, and hopefully we can get better care of our state lands," he said.
