There's got to be a cougar joke in here somewhere...

The owner of the Big Run Wolf Ranch in Lockport, was charged with reckless conduct and possession of a dangerous animal after prosecutors say he "brought a tiger restrained only by a leash and unmuzzled into a bar open to the public with patrons inside."

And on the third day, everyone just stayed very far away

Libertyville police arrested a 20-year-old man for DUI. The next day, he was arrested for battery after a former friend said the man punched him in the head.

Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's a class-action lawsuit

A Will County woman is not pleased that an anti-frizz product claiming to keep her strands "smooth and silky ... and provide protection against humidity" didn't deliver, so she's suing the L’Oreal, after buying the $4.69 product, and is seeking unspecified damages and class-action status.

A textbook example of going from bad to worse

A 20-year-old man was taken into custody at Lake Forest College for possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. Because he had a cut from an earlier fight, he was turned over to paramedics to take him to the hospital. However, on the way there police say he jumped out of the moving ambulance and ran away, damaging a heart monitor in the process.

He was later found after police say he stole a snowplow and drove by several officers with the blade stuck in the down position. He then abandoned the plow after being unable to raise the blade and police said they found him hiding inside a vehicle that he had broken into.

Gram scam

Two Northbrook residents reported receiving calls from a person claiming to be their grandson. In one call, the caller asked for $1,900 to get out of jail in Mexico. In both instances, the caller hung up when the supposed grandmother got suspicious.
