A Utah County couple are in jail after police say they gave their newborn daughter drugs on the day she was born to mask withdrawal symptoms from hospital workers.
Elk Ridge residents Colby Glen Wilde, 29, and Lacey Dawn Christenson, 26, were booked into Utah County jail on suspicion of distribution of a controlled substance and child endangerment, along with possession of heroin, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Utah County sheriff’s officials said in a Friday news release that the couple were arrested earlier this week after investigators learned that Christenson allegedly had used drugs throughout her pregnancy and had applied crushed painkillers to the infant’s gums April 9 — the day she was born — to try to mask signs of addiction.
On this day in 1863, Confederate cavalry leader John Hunt Morgan and 360 of his men are captured at Salineville, Ohio, during a spectacular raid on the North. Starting in July 1862, Morgan made four major raids on Northern or Northern-held territory over the course of a year. Although they were of limited strategic significance, the raids served as a boost to Southern morale and captured much-needed supplies.
Attempting to preserve the peace in Dodge City, Assistant Marshal Wyatt Earp trades shots with a band of drunken cowboys, fatally wounding one of them.
On this day in 1931, a swarm of grasshoppers descends on crops throughout the American heartland, devastating millions of acres. Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota, already in the midst of a bad drought, suffered tremendously from this disaster.
The National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama years by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules.
The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.
And I always thought they were there so you could dump your chamber pot out the bedroom window and not splash your wife who is gossiping with her neighbor in the doorway.
Country artist Jamey Johnson’s July 23 concert at House of Blues, Myrtle Beach, (HOBMB) was cancelled after he apparently refused to disarm while in the venue.
A Secret Service agent on Tuesday afternoon accidentally shot himself and is hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to the agency.
A news release from the Secret Service said a special officer assigned to the Washington field office accidentally discharged his weapon while on duty.
The incident has been referred to the Office of Professional Responsibility for further review.
I can watch that video over and over and over. The best part isn’t him shooting himself, it’s when he tells the woman to bring him another gun and the class starts freaking out because apparently he isn’t professional enough.
WASHINGTON – The top U.S. oversight official in Afghanistan said Tuesday he has launched a criminal probe into why the Pentagon may have wasted up to $28 million on pricey forest-camouflage uniforms for Afghan troops who operate in a largely desert environment.
A teenager survivor of a deadly California car wreck streamed on Instagram says social media is behind the death of her friend.
Manuela Seja was in the backseat when Obdulia Sanchez, who was livestreaming the ride in her Buick Century, swerved off the road near Fresno.
The 18-year-old driver’s younger sister, 14-year-old Jacqueline Sanchez was thrown from the car and killed in the crash, which Obdulia Sanchez continued to record.
No, social media’s not to blame when you consider the fact that the 18 year old driver was drinking and driving and playing with her fucking phone when she was behind the wheel.
Shocking footage shows a naked man screaming at people in a Chicago neighborhood as he is covered in blood after cutting off his own penis.
The unidentified man appears to be high on acid or synthetic drugs in the video clip filmed on Monday evening near the intersection of Grace Street and Drake Avenue in the Irving Park community.

Back about 15-20 years ago Modesto had one hell of a rainstorm and as is normal in Modesto, the storm drains immediately backed up and flooded the streets.
I was sitting in the left hand turn lane waiting for my signal when a jacked up truck with a pair of kids shifted from the fast lane to the sidewalk lane and just drenched this old man walking down the sidewalk. Those two boys just thought that was funny as shit.
The light changed and I caught up to them about a half block away. They turned into the Raley’s parking lot still chuckling and giggling and I was dead off on their ass. As soon as they parked and opened the door, I was there with a tall boy that I had been shaking up the whole way and I opened that motherfucker up, spraying the driver and the inside of the truck.
Somehow that fucking youngster failed to see the humor in it.
Yeah, I turned around, found the old man and gave him a ride home. If there was any way I could’ve forced those kids to do it, I damned sure would’ve.
School bake sales are a great excuse to eat unhealthy homemade treats under the guise of “fundraising,” but one anonymous mother took the whole “homemade” aspect a little too far after making a batch of brownies with her own breast milk.
The unnamed mother wrote a Facebook post complaining about the backlash she received when people discovered that she used her own boob juice in the recipe in lieu of regular milk. Oh, she also thought that feeding a bunch of children her breast milk was totally chill because some kids “could use the nutrition.” Yeah, the post is a doozy:
The answer is always the same, “I do what I do because it’s what I do.” Every parent has challenges, mine just seem to be a little more obvious. If I was given a choice? That’s the second most asked question. Knowing what I know about raising autistic kids, if I knew before I had kids that they’d be autistic, would I still have them? Well, would I also know about the joys? The hugs and sweet cuddles after the storms? The laughs through the tears? The soft hands taking mine for reassurance when we face new challenges? Hell yeah, I’d do it again.
Angel’s one of the most caring and toughest people I know and it’s a privilege to be able to call her a friend. I wish, I truly wish I had her heart and courage.
