Honey-Don't List: 5 Craziest Crimes of Week

An alleged "distracted-driver," a bulldozing-happy husband, and a Doogie Howser wannabe factor into the weirdest crime stories of the week:

  • Man Bulldozes Home While Wife Runs Errands: Picture this: You head out to run errands and return to find your home has been completely demolished ... by your own husband. That's what happened to Diane Andryshak of Middletown, NY, on Monday. Here's what husband James Rhein, who is facing a felony criminal mischief charge, had to say.
  • Man Ticketed for Eating Burger While Driving: "You can't just go down the road eating a hamburger" are words that Madison Turner will likely not soon forget. That's what he claims a Georgia cop told him three times after pulling him over for "distracted driving." Turner says he had been enjoying a McDonald's burger when the officer stopped him and told him how long he'd been observing Turner nosh.

  • Teen Posed as OB/GYN ... for a Month: Apparently, the only thing necessary to pass yourself off as a doctor—an OB/GYN, no less—is an official-looking white coat. A teen reportedly pulled it off for a month at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla. Cops say the ruse finally came to a halt when the teen was inside an exam room with a doctor and his patient. That doctor's initial thought: "These young doctors look younger every year."
  • Meth-Carrying Drone Crashes Near Border: Somebody in Mexico who failed to read the instructions is out more than 6 pounds of meth and a $1,400 drone. Police say the battery-operated drone carrying 3 kilos of the drug crashed in a Tijuana parking lot about a mile from the US border. That weight turned out to be a problem.
  • Alleged iPad Thieves Make Big Mistake: Two men in Houston are accused of stealing $5,000 in cash and an iPad from a parked car. Problem is, they were apparently so happy about their haul, they couldn't resist posing for selfies. Gentlemen, meet "the cloud."
