A Detroit woman who has had her driver’s license suspended 12 times is facing new charges after hitting a police car, which was totaled. Andreana Seay drove away after the crash with her headlights off and her car leaking fluid. Shortly after that, other officers tracked her down.

A 57-year-old woman in Italy who went to the doctor with inflamed sinuses and facial pain had an unusual diagnosis: a dental implant in the sinus. The woman had undergone oral surgery about two years before to place an implant — a 2-centimeter long metal screw designed to hold in place a replacement for a missing tooth — in her upper jaw. But surprisingly, an inspection of her mouth revealed the implant was not there. Instead, the gums covering the area of her missing tooth were healed, and her remaining teeth were healthy. A CT scan showed the implant to be in her sinus cavity, next to her left eye. The researchers performed surgery to remove the dental implant, after which the woman’s sinus symptoms went away.

John Henry Shiffner was collared Saturday evening after he tangled with his girlfriend on a street in Century, Florida. The girlfriend told deputies that Shiffner pushed her to the ground. After being handcuffed and placed into a squad car, Shiffner “began rambling on about how Obama is right.” Shiffner said, “Obama said cops always listen to women.”
