Man arrested after mistaking water treatment plant for a meth lab

A man who mistook a rural water treatment plant in New Zealand for a methamphetamine production laboratory, and detained two workers for three hours while he searched the facility for meth, has been sentenced to home detention. Michael James Roy Turner, 29, appeared in the Hamilton District Court on Friday charged with two counts of kidnapping, one charge of burglary, and two counts each of assaulting police and resisting police.
All the charges related to an incident on February 26 when, at 8.30am, he broke into the Waitomo District Council-owned plant in Benneydale under the illusion that it was a sophisticated methamphetamine operation.In doing so, he activated an alarm and two workers from the infrastructure management company Veolia​ Water went to investigate. On entering, the pair were confronted by Turner, who was armed with a large hunting knife in a sheath attached to his belt.
Although he did not brandish the knife, he was acting in an erratic and irrational manner and demanded they make him some meth. The pair felt compelled to stay where they were to avoid upsetting him. According to the police summary of facts, at one point Turner began licking some of the glassware in the facility and snorted chlorine from a container, evidently under the impression that the residue and powder were methamphetamine. After being detained for three hours, the two workers escaped and called the police. Turner fled into an area of bush behind the plant and was soon tracked down by two constables and a police dog.

Turner struggled violently as the two police officers attempted to arrest him and managed to get hold of one of the constable's batons, which he used against both officers before eventually being restrained. Although shaken, the two workers were unharmed. They declined an invitation to take part in a restorative justice meeting with Turner. Judge Kim Saunders sentenced Turner to seven months of home detention, with conditions including not to possess or consume alcohol or drugs that were not prescribed to him. Before sentencing, Turner's counsel Jarom Keung said Turner had been in custody since his arrest and asked for that to be taken into account. An additional charge of aggravated burglary was withdrawn by the Crown.

Man arrested for allegedly grabbing women's buttocks after 'trying to get his heart rate up'

When police in Indianapolis first spotted him on Monday night, George Owens had just finished sprinting down Massachusetts Avenue, scaling lamp posts like some kind of urban Tarzan. The first officer on the scene then watched as Owens raced down the middle of the street and ducked into the Ball & Biscuit, a popular bar known for its craft cocktails.
A minute later, according to court documents, Owens was back out into the street, but not before grabbing and squeezing the buttocks of two women in the bar. As police questioned Owens, 35, they learned he'd been running around "trying to get his heart rate up." Owens told officers that running and displaying his energy is his "mating call," and that he was out that night looking for a mate.
Two women, who were inside Ball & Biscuit when Owens rushed in, accused him of grabbing their buttocks as he made his way back toward the bathrooms. Owens denied the accusation, and said he merely brushed passed the two women on his way to the bathroom. Earlier this month, Owens was accused of grabbing a woman's breast as she was walking.
The woman told police, according to court documents, Owens approached her and, while trying to reach for her purse, grabbed her breast. In that incident, Owens was charged with misdemeanor battery resulting in bodily injury. He pleaded guilty, was given a year's probation. This latest incident violated that probation, and the Marion County prosecutor's office is asking that Owens be held in custody for at least seven days. He has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery and remains in the Marion County Jail on a $500 bond.

Two men face several charges following moose riding incident

A year after a video was posted to YouTube showing a man riding a moose, two men from Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada, have been charged under the Wildlife Act.
The video, shot from a motor boat, shows a moose being chased across a shallow body of water, before a man jumps onto the animal and rides it for 15 seconds before falling off. Others on the boat can be heard laughing.
The Conservation Officer Service says that a year long investigation has led to two suspects being charged with three counts, including harassing wildlife, attempting to capture wildlife and hunting big game while the animal is swimming.
The men were tracked down after the body of water in the video was identified as Tuchodi Lakes near Fort Nelson. The men, who were not named, are due to appear in court in Fort Nelson on Aug. 8.
