Stonehenge Rock Source Identified

Scientists have found the exact source of Stonehenge's smaller bluestones. The stones' rock composition revealed they come from a nearby outcropping, located about 1.8 miles (3 km) away from the site originally proposed as the source of such rocks nearly a century ago.
The discovery of the rock's origin, in turn, could help archaeologists one day unlock the mystery of how the stones got to Stonehenge.

Police search for man accused of knocking woman unconscious with frozen sausages

Police in Des Moines, Iowa, are looking for a man who allegedly knocked out his father's girlfriend with a package of frozen bratwurst. The 50-year-old woman had a deep gash in the back of her head when she spoke with Des Moines police at Mercy Medical Center on Thursday.
The wound, which required staples, was the product of a spat with her boyfriend's 44-year-old son. She was fed up with the son "freeloading and paying for nothing" for the past month at their home.
So, at around 2pm, she told him to pack up and leave, much to the son's delight. He laughed as he gathered his things and loaded them into a friend's car. She checked the freezer for any food he had left behind, finding an abandoned package of frozen bratwurst. She tossed the package into the yard after him.
When she turned to walk back inside the home, the man hurled the sausages at the back of her head. The woman said she blacked out and fell from the blow. But when she came to, the man had left. She went next door and called 911. Police noted that a large amount of blood had dripped all over her clothing. A warrant has been issued for the man's arrest on assault charges.

Two women hospitalized when thrown pizza led to stabbing with knife attached to brass knuckles

Two women from Spokane, Washington, were taken to the hospital after being stabbed following an altercation with another woman. Christopher Godwin said he was hosting a birthday party for his two former roommates, Sommer Smith and Megan Godsey, on the back patio of his home.
Godwin said that during the party, a new roommate, Amanda Lipe, threw a piece of pizza out of her bedroom window for an unknown reason. According to court documents, Smith confronted Lipe over the thrown food. Another witness said she observed Lipe go into her bedroom and return with a knife with brass knuckles attached to it.
The witness said a fight then broke out. Officers responded to the home where they contacted Smith and Godsey. Police said the two women both had blood on them. According to court documents, Smith said she was stabbed in the right shoulder by Lipe and was hit near her left eyebrow which caused lacerations, swellings and bleedings.
Smith also told police that Lipe stabbed Godsey. When police contacted Godsey, she was very intoxicated and did not know who had assaulted her. Smith and Godsey were both transported to the hospital for treatment of their injuries. Lipe admitted to police that she had a knife with brass knuckles on it on her person during the fight. Court documents do not state any charges.

One-armed man arrested after attempting to rob Crossfit coach and boxing champion

A man with one arm was arrested on Wednesday afternoon after he allegedly tried to rob the home of a woman who is a Crossfit coach and boxing champion.
The victim awoke to find Albert Thompson, 28, in her home in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Thompson tried to steal $80, but the woman was able to keep him at the scene until deputies arrived, according to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office.
“This guy picked the wrong house,” said Sheriff Michael Adkinson. “Thankfully, the homeowner was quite capable of protecting herself and we were able to arrive quickly and put Thompson in custody.”
The Sheriff’s Office said Thompson gave deputies a false name, but he was arrested and charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, misdemeanor petit theft and obstruction by a disguised person.

Marijuana-smoking man called police after mistaking dog bite for bullet wound

A Texas man called police on Thursday believing he had been shot in the left buttock while sitting on his porch.
When an officer from the Groesbeck Police Department, just east of Waco, responded they found the victim had been smoking marijuana and that he'd actually been bitten by his dog. He hadn't been shot.
"During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the 'victim' had been smoking marijuana on the porch as the thunderstorm passed through the area," Groesbeck Police Chief Chris Henson said in a Facebook post.
"The loud thunder scared one of the dogs causing it to nip the 'victim' in the left buttock. He believed he'd been shot and subsequently called the police, Henson said "to quell the rumor concerning a reported shooting." The victim was treated at the scene by emergency personnel and released.
