‘Birthday Girl’ Desperate for the Bathroom Leads Police on High Speed Chase

When you gotta go, you gotta go. A woman in Enid, Oklahoma led police on a high speed chase on her 28th birthday, all because she really needed to get home in time to go to the bathroom.

Local outlet KFOR said that Emily Owings was pulled over for a pretty standard traffic stop: she wasn’t wearing her seatbelt. Unfortunately, the only ID she had on her was her medical marijuana card. When police searched for the driver, they found out that her driver’s license had been suspended. According to an Enid Police Department Facebook post, the whole ordeal began at about 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

In police footage shared by KFOR, an officer informs Owings that her license is suspended. When she asks why, the officer says that he doesn’t know but was “waiting to see if [she] had warrants through Woods County.”

Owings tried to tell the officer exactly why she wanted to go so quickly. “I have to poop so bad,” she said. After the officer dismissed her need to go, she said that it was her birthday. “It’s my birthday,” she said. When the officer asked what she’d say, she reiterated, “It’s my f**king birthday, man.”

In another clip, Owings starts crying and asking why he won’t let her go. The officer said it wasn’t possible, because her license was supended. “I’m sorry, I didn’t know,” she said. “I won’t drive no more, but can I please go home and go poop?”

KFOR reported that the woman did have a warrant out for her arrest in Woods County, allegedly for a fight with an officer. Upon telling her that officers were on their way to get her, she responded, “No, they’re not. F**k you guys,” and sped off.

In the police department Facebook post, it wrote that the chase took place at speeds topping 70 miles per hour in a 30 MPH speed zone.

After she was apprehended, the woman was seemingly still more concerned about her bowels than the fact that her charges were going to be upgraded. “Can I poop in your car, man?” She asked as the officers put her in the back of the car.

Officers found a glass meth pipe with burnt residue during a search of Owings’ vehicle. The police said she was booked with “eluding, reckless driving, driving under suspension, no seat belt, no insurance and possession of drug paraphernalia.”

At the end of its Facebook post, the department said it knows that we all have bathroom emergencies, but it’s still not worth the risks that Owings took. “Everybody poops, we know, but that’s no reason to commit a felony and put in danger the lives of officers, other motorists and pedestrians in the area. Also, be sure to buckle up. Seat belts save lives,” the post said.

The Enid Police Department public information officer did not respond to Newsweek’s emailed request for comment.

Police search for 1 of 3 brothers accused of raping 10yo girl

Wilmer Paz Perez, left, and his brother, Raul Paz Perez, were arrested and booked with first-degree rape, accused of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl.

KENNER, Louisiana — Police are looking for one of the three brothers accused of raping a 10-year-old girl in Kenner on September 9. 

35-year-olds Raul and Wilmer Paz Perez have been arrested and are being held without bond at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna after being charged with first-degree-rape of a victim under the age of 13, a release from the Kenner Police Department said.

Police have been looking for the third brother, 31-year-old Elder Paz Perez.

The brothers, who were friends of the victim’s family, were alone in the house with the girl in early September when they started to make sexual advances towards her. 

The three men offered the girl money, but she refused and locked herself in the bathroom before the men somehow unlocked the door and raped her, police said.

Elder Paz Perez already has a second rape allegation involving another victim against him, police reported. 

Anyone willing to share information on the whereabouts Elder Paz-Perez are asked to contact the Kenner Police at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111 or toll-free 1.877.903.7867

Salty Girl and the Long Dog

By Sara Anne Donnelly

The best beaches, Cherie Herne says, are the hidden ones. On her paddleboard, the eighth-generation Yorker accesses remote shores near her home, with her Chiweenie dog, Piggie, perched on the nose in a mermaid life jacket outfitted with a handle for when the pup slips into the water. Which happens a lot.

On the sand, Piggie scampers while Herne fills her frame pack — at 4 feet tall, it’s nearly as big as she is — with ocean debris: pre–World War II lavender sea glass, blue-gray “wishing” rocks ringed with white quartz, hunks of broken ceramic, impossibly snarled bundles of nautical rope, and loads and loads of driftwood. Such are the days of “Salty Girl,” which is what Herne  
calls her online shop for the creations she constructs from her “treasures.”

Herne sports an enviable tan and claims she’s part mermaid. “It’s like I’ve created the perfect life,” she says.


But it wasn’t always this way. Although Herne grew up with free-spirited parents — her late father, Bobby Herne, was a well-known guitarist — by 2014, she found herself tied to a computer as a graphic and web designer. Her body ached and her mind wandered. That year, she was diagnosed with Lyme disease, which she thought might account for some of what she calls “fire in the brain.” Seeking relief, she consulted with a business coach who helped her realize that daily beach walking might be the antidote. 

Hundreds of beach days later (she’s missed only a handful over the years), Herne is now a master of the Maine-coast aesthetic. She spends her days scouring the shore for materials. Her nights are devoted to transforming finds into all manner of creations, from hand-painted signs on wooden paddles to made-with-driftwood fish, curtain rods, sailboats, handrails, miniature Christmas trees, and — her best seller — carefully arranged wreaths accented with glass and brick scavenged from the shoreline. 

“Every day is an adventure,” she says, “and every day is about making something different.”

What most attracts people to your creations? 

The people who buy my work love Maine or know somebody who loves Maine. Maybe they vacationed here or grew up spending summers here and haven’t returned for a long time. One customer used to come as a little girl to visit her grandfather. Ordering things like sea glass or a beach brick the size of her fist brings her back to those days. It’s cool that I can give people just a little bit of the Maine beach for their very own.

Cherie Herne, Salty Girl and the Long Dog

Do you have any tips on finding great stuff at the beach? 

I go where people aren’t. Near rocks, for example, where the sea doesn’t come in straight, the waves can push things to either side and leave behind treasures as they recede. And I always go at low tide.

Why do you like working with driftwood?

It takes so many years for a piece of

Teyana Taylor gives birth in bathroom again to second baby girl

Teyana Taylor knows how to deliver a surprise after giving birth in her bathroom again to a baby girl. 

The Wake Up singer welcomed her second child with husband Iman Shumpert on Saturday, just one day after hosting her baby shower. 

NBA star Iman announced the happy news with a photo and video of their newborn while also sharing her adorable name – Rue Rose. 

‘At 3:28 am on Sept 6th 2020 Rue Rose 🌹 decided that the baby shower thrown for her and mommy was too lit,’ Iman joked in the Instagram post. 

‘She didn’t make the party but she managed to make the next day her birthdate!!!’ 

Sharing details of Teyana’s unique delivery, Iman continued: ‘Now…when we buy homes, we always find a bathroom with great energy… but not in a million years would you be able to tell me we’d deliver both of our daughters in a bathroom without the assistance of a hospital! 

‘Our newest edition entered the world in the water and came out looking around and ready to explore! A healthy child. A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins….again. Welcome babygirl…we love you! 🌹 @babyruerose.’ 

Teyana, 29, famously gave birth to the couple’s first child, Junie, on their bathroom floor in 2015 after being too far along in labour to make it to a hospital. 

In June, the singer revealed her plans to have soul singer Erykah Badu deliver her second child. 

Even though the Junie story is crazy, it kind of put me in a place where I don’t know if I want to go to the hospital for this next baby. I’ll make sure it’s not on the toilet or the bathroom floor,’ Teyana told Nick Cannon on his podcast. 

‘Her and Iman are going to deliver my baby. I’m super excited. I’ma have her just sing her verse from Lowkey to me to calm my nerves.’

It’s not yet known if Erykah, who is actually a trained midwife, made it Teyana’s side for the birth but it would certainly make the bathroom story even more epic. 

Teyana announced she and Iman, 30, were pregnant with their second daughter in the music video for her latest single Wake Up.
