The skinny: Picture of two toilets becomes Olympic joke

Double trouble

Picture of two toilets becomes national joke

At least one Olympic bathroom seems to be flush with toilets. When BBC reporter Steve Rosenberg went to use the bathroom at the cross-country skiing and biathlon center for next month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, he found two toilets but only one stall. His tweeted picture instantly became a national joke. The games run from Feb. 7-23.

Man arrested after Facebook taunting

Police in one northeastern Pennsylvania town really "liked" this Facebook post. Officers in Freeland arrested 35-year-old Anthony Lescowitch on Monday night, less than two hours after he shared a wanted photo of himself and taunted police for not being able to find him, the (Wilkes-Barre) Times Leader reported Tuesday. He was being sought on assault-related charges. An officer pretending to be an attractive woman then messaged Lescowitch, according to police. Lescowitch eventually agreed to meet for a cigarette and was arrested at the agreed-upon location.
