A Florida man managed to get locked up for locking his keys in his car -- in a failed attempt to keep cops from searching it.
Charles Albert Garcia was pulled over by a deputy who clocked him doing 70 miles per hour in a 45 zone. When asked for his license, Garcia said it had been suspended, and when asked for the registration, he said he didn't have that, either -- because it was his father's car.
The officer moved to search the Lexus, but Garcia quickly tossed the keys inside and locked it, gloating that they couldn't get in. Unfortunately for him, it took less than an hour for a towing company to pop the lock and allow a search that uncovered cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, amphetamine pills and marijuana.

A high school basketball team in Missouri is calling foul on an opponent after finding out that they used some clever trickery to win the game last weekend.
After Dora High School defeated Licking High School by two points, some parents of the losing players watched video of the game and noticed something fishy. Dora, which has a set of triplets on the team, had performed the old switcheroo and swapped two of the brothers at the foul line.
The video appeared to show Auston Luna getting fouled. But then as he walks toward the sideline to talk to his coach, who happens to be the triplets' father and the school's principal, one of his brothers walks to the foul line to take the free throws in his place. It's believed they may have pulled the switch multiple times during the game. Other opponents, it turns out, have also suspected them of doing it.
Athletic officials are investigating the accusations but say it's unlikely the outcome of the game would change. (USA Today)
