PRINCE ANDREW STOPPED BY COPS AT MOM'S HOME

Only days after an intruder was captured inside Buckingham Palace in London, the police told Prince Andrew on Wednesday to "put your hands up and get on the ground," according to the Sunday Express. No guns were drawn, let alone fired, the police were quick to say Sunday. And they have apologized. The Duke of York, a distant fifth in line to the throne, said in a statement: "I am grateful for their apology and look forward to a safe walk in the garden in the future."

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at a New Mexico checkpoint say a man was discovered Thursday facedown among a load of the spicy stuff. Columbus Port director Robert Reza says next to the "highly intoxicated" 35-year-old was a bottle of tequila. He told agents he climbed into the commercial hopper in Mexico.
