The skinny: Michigan woman turns 115 years old

Special occasion

Michigan woman turns 115 years old

A Detroit-area woman, a member of a select group of the living to have been born in the 19th century, celebrated a birthday on Friday. Her 115th. Jeralean Talley, who was born May 23, 1899, still gets around on her own with the help of a walker. The Inkster resident plans to celebrate with family and friends at a local church on Sunday. Her answer as to why she has lived so long hasn't changed over the years. "It's all in the good Lord's hands," Talley told the Detroit Free Press. "There's nothing I can do about it." Talley is the oldest-living American and the second-oldest person in the world, according to a list maintained by the Gerontology Research Group, which tracks the world's longest-living people.

Unexpected delivery

Man in underwear steals bread truck

A man stole a New York City bread truck and began delivering loaves of savory baked goods to random businesses, the bakery's owner said Thursday. David Bastar hopped into the Grimaldi's Home of Bread truck on Manhattan's Upper East Side early Monday while the real driver was making a delivery at a pizzeria, according to police. Reportedly wearing only his underwear, Bastar then allegedly began dropping off baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and sourdough bread — but not to the bakery's customers, said Joe Grimaldi, the owner of the baker in the Ridgewood neighborhood of Queens. "The bread was left somewhere. Where I don't know," he said. "He dropped a lot of bread." Grimaldi said about $5,000 in bread was taken. The bakery later was able to accommodate all its customers.

No pants necessary

Officer, please let me explain

A 24-year-old Bremerton man told a Washington State trooper he was not wearing pants because he had recently received a body wax. After the "manzilian" or Brazilian hair removal for men, he said his jeans irritated his skin so he was driving in his underwear. The Kitsap Sun reports a witness saw the man exposing himself Wednesday. He was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure.

Brain Freeze

Police: Ice cream bar used in attack

Authorities in South Carolina say a man who was not in good humor smacked an ice cream truck driver with a fudge bar in a dispute over correct change after his daughter bought the frozen confection. The ice cream vendor told Rock Hill, S.C., police the man accused her of not giving his daughter correct change after a purchase. That's when the fudge bar was allegedly employed as a weapon. Police officers who responded to the call Wednesday reported they saw a red mark on the driver's arm. The driver gave officers a description of the man and the white truck he used for a getaway vehicle. The police report did not say whether he took the fudge bar with him.
