Some guy made an awesome Halloween costume for his daughter . . . it made her look like a storm cloud with lightning flashing inside it.
It looks like it’s made out of the kind of stuffing they use in couch cushions and throw pillows. And she wore a big string of flashing lights underneath it to simulate lightning.
But it was kind of hard to walk around in. So she ended up ditching it, and went as Wonder Woman instead.
Two cops in New York were chasing a guy on foot last week, and he ended up joining a half-marathon that was going on in Central Park.
We don’t know if he was TRYING to be clever, but it does sound like a good way to hide . . . you get to blend in AND keep running.
Unfortunately it didn’t work out for him . . . because 90 of the people running were ALSO cops
They were off-duty police officers from England, who’d flown in to raise money for a cancer charity. The best part is they were running in UNIFORMS . . . they all had those British police helmets on.
One of them is a 28-year-old named Alex Courts, who was about ten miles into the race when he saw the two cops chasing the guy.
He says he didn’t even have to break his stride. He just kept running . . . waited until the guy was right in front of him . . . and tackled him to the ground.
Then after the dude was in handcuffs, Alex finished the last three miles of the race.

Unless you’re unemployed or a 90-year-old woman, you probably didn’t catch “The Price Is Right” yesterday, and that’s a shame.
A contestant named Eliot got two really great spins on the wheel, which totaled to about $26,000 in prize money. To celebrate, Eliot did weird dances where he appeared to hump both the ground and the air around him.
On top of the 26-grand, Eliot also ended up winning an 11-night cruise to Tahiti, and a Mitsubishi Mirage.
Here’s someone who’s lucky she picks terrible passwords . . . because it ended up saving her LIFE.
On Monday, a 28-year-old woman lost control of her car and drove off a cliff near San Jose, California. And she had OnStar, which should have told police where she was. But for some reason, it didn’t work right. (The woman hasn’t been identified.)
Luckily, a cop named Dave Cameron showed up at her family’s house after they reported her missing. And he asked if she had an iPhone, because he knew they come with an app called “Find My iPhone” that shows exactly where it is.
The problem was, they needed to access her iPad to check it, and her family didn’t know her password. But apparently it was pretty generic . . . because Dave was able to guess it on the THIRD TRY. And the app ended up leading them straight to her.
It turned out she was face down in a ravine, and couldn’t reach her phone. A Coast Guard helicopter eventually got to her more than 17 HOURS after the crash happened.
At the hospital, she was treated for injuries to her legs and stomach. And she was pretty out of it, so it’s still not clear what caused the crash. But it sounds like she’ll be okay.
