A man was arrested Wednesday for walking naked through a Walmart in Tega Cay, according to a police report.
Officers said Kevin Patrick, 36, of Fort Mill, was seen walking in the health and beauty section of the store. They said he had no clothes on except for a pair of black tennis shoes.
Police said the man was found in the electronics section of the store and then escorted out.
According to the police report, Patrick told officers he remembers being in bed asleep at his sister’s house and then remembers waking up naked in his truck at Walmart.
He told police that he thought it would be a good idea to go inside the store and buy some clothes.
Officers found the man a pair of shorts from his truck, had him put them on and then arrested him for public disorderly conduct.
The store manager of Walmart allowed Patrick’s truck to stay in the parking lot overnight.
A crook got much more than he bargained for when he tried to rob a CVS Pharmacy in Sarasota.
Surveillance video captured the crook walking into the store with his face covered and threatening the clerk.
The man then demanded pain pills from the pharmacist.
But, one customer, Janus Jurisoo, sneaked up on the crook, put him in a choke hold and tackled him.
That's not all.
Jurisoo held Freddie Johnson down until the police arrived and arrested him.
"Then, I see he is threatening the ladies at the pharmacy and the girls are all scared. He was begging me to let the choke go because he can't breathe," said Jurisoo.
Jurisoo said Johnson threatened to pull out a knife, but never did.
Jurisoo also said he has a background in self-defense.Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:20:11 -0400
The 2014 New York Auto Show is one of the industry’s biggest opportunities to show off, and judging by Tuesday’s press preview, automakers definitely put their eye candy on display
Ford made a bold move in redesigning the top-selling car in the world with the 2015 Focus and celebrated a half-century of Mustangs by putting one on top of the Empire State Building
And Land Rover went all Batman and made its Discovery Vision Concept SUV remote-controlled.
Yep, there was a lot of enthusiasm on display, especially from gearheads.
And why not? The auto industry is still celebrating from last month’s sales numbers, so morale has got to be pretty high right now.

More than 60 new designs are set to be unveiled throughout the event.
Call it rooting for the home team, but New York Daily News says that makes their city's auto show an even bigger deal than Detroit’s — despite the fact New Yorkers aren’t exactly a prime car-buying demographic.
It’s estimated more than a million people will swing by to get a look at the auto industry’s latest toys. The show opens to the public on Friday.
