(Newser) – Some bizarre Walmart behavior and a strange court ruling are on the list:

  • Woman 'Consumed Everything She Could' in Walmart: Police say 25-year-old Josseleen Elida Lopez drove a motorized shopping cart through a Florida Walmart while gorging on discount wine and everything from sushi and a rotisserie chicken to mini muffins and cinnamon rolls. When she told cops what she had done before her superstore smorgasbord, it made a bit more sense.
  • Craigslist Mover Isn't What He Seems: Kiran Reddy and Deepthi Myana hired a mover via Craigslist to drive their belongings from St. Louis County to North Carolina, paying $1,100 in cash up front and agreeing to pay $300 once their stuff arrived. The only good news is that they saved $300.
  • DWI Dismissed Because Driver's Body Is a 'Brewery': Police near Buffalo stopped a female driver who had been reported "weaving all over" the road, and her BAC was found to be more than four times the legal limit. But a judge dismissed the charges after medical evidence showed she has "Auto-Brewery Syndrome"—meaning her body gets her drunk even if she doesn't drink. Weird, but she's not the first.

  • Guy Posted Video of Himself Drinking and Driving: Dustin Rittgers' first mistake was allegedly drinking and driving. His second mistake was to video himself doing just that and posting it to Facebook publicly. Check out a clip from the cringeworthy video—and how he responded to a friend who posted a concerned comment.
  • Man Hops Fence, Steals Police SUV: A man in Washington state arrived at the Auburn Police Department's secured city lot on a bicycle and left in a police SUV that had a full tank of gas, driving the SUV right through the front gate, cops say. But it wasn't just the SUV police were worried about—it was what was inside that gave them extra impetus to bring it back.
