Teenager injured after being hit by car while fleeing chainsaw-wielding haunted house actor

A teenage boy was hit by a car after he ran out of a haunted house in Clarkton, North Carolina, on Saturday night. The boy, aged around 14 or 15 years old, was hit by the vehicle after being chased by a man welding a chainsaw, according to a state trooper on the scene.
When troopers arrived at the scene, they said the boy was lying in the road, which is about 175 yards away from the house, in front of the car. According to officials, the victim was chased from the Clarkton Haunted House by an actor charging at him with a chainsaw. Frankie Burney, spokesperson for the Clarkton Haunted House, said: “This was a freak accident that happened at the haunted house. Kid with the saw chased a group out of the back of the house like always.
“The kid that ran hadn’t gone through the house. I guess the actor thought he had and chased him to the peanut shelter. When the kid kept running the actor cut the saw off and started hollering for him to stop. The kid kept running so the actor took his mask off and jogged behind him still hollering for him to stop. The kid ended up running through the field and up through the ditch a 1/4 mile down the road towards Bladenboro.
“He ran onto the road, the actor was still yelling for him to stop. He ran back off the road onto the shoulder then stopped and ran right back in the road in front of the car. Luckily about half the house workers are on the fire department so first responders were there very quickly.” The boy was airlifted to the New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Troopers said he was stable and is expected to survive. Highway Patrol troopers said the driver of the SUV will not be charged.

Man who allegedly ripped mail slot off door before swinging his penis while naked arrested

Police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, arrested a 27-year-old man on Monday morning who allegedly ripped the mail slot off the door of an apartment. He then walked around the complex naked, swinging his penis at residents until officers arrived and forced him to get dressed again. Police and paramedics suspect Louis Jonathan Fano, of Reseda, California, was under the influence of drugs and alcohol during the incident in Spanish Town.
Fano appeared to be hallucinating and "hollering at persons who were not present" during his arrest at around 10:00am. Fano struggled with officers as they took him to a Baton Rouge Police office downtown, kicking one policeman in the stomach and refusing to cooperate with booking procedures.
Baton Rouge EMS paramedics evaluated Fano and confirmed he was "definitely on some type of drug and/or alcohol" but said it was okay for officers to take him to Parish Prison, where he was booked on counts of obscenity, trespassing, criminal damage to property, disturbing the peace, battery on an officer and resisting an officer. His bail is set at $8,500, but he remains in Parish Prison.

Two young children wounded when their father accidentally fired gun inside vehicle

A 2-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl were wounded in a hunting accident on Monday east of Sweet Home, Oregon, authorities said. The children and their older 6-year-old brother were hunting at the time of the incident with their father, 27-year-old Zack Davis, and his father, 54-year-old Bob Davis, according to Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley. The five Sweet Home residents were near Green Peter Dam when the father of the children saw what he believed to be a deer and got out of the pick-up truck, Riley said. While walking back to the truck, the man’s .30-30 rifle accidentally discharged, and the bullet entered the truck through the driver’s door, authorities said.
The bullet struck both the 4-year-old girl and 2-year-old boy, Riley said. The boy was hit in the right leg above the ankle, breaking a leg bone. He was taken to a Lebanon Community Hospital and then transferred to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland. The boy’s condition was unknown, but Riley said the injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
The 4-year-old girl was struck in the left shin and taken to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, where she had surgery to remove a metal fragment from her leg, Riley said. She is in a stable condition. Capt. Kevin Guilford of the Linn County Sheriff’s Office said that the number of children injured was revised from three to two after a cut on the 6-year-old’s hand was determined not to be shooting related. The sheriff’s office continues to investigate. The man has not been arrested.

Allegedly intoxicated 12-year-old driver crashed car during police pursuit

A 12-year-old boy is facing several charges after he allegedly led police on a chase while intoxicated in Austin, Texas, before crashing on Monday morning.
