LOCKLAND, Ohio – Police in suburban Cincinnati arrested a woman after she flagged an officer down and asked if there were any warrants out for her arrest. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday that after Lockland police officer Dan Lyons informed 44-year-old Selma Elmore she did have an outstanding warrant, the woman ran off. The chase ended when Elmore pushed Lyons into a building, injuring his elbow.

Other officers responding to a call for backup later apprehended the woman.

Elmore, wanted for allegedly failing to pay a fine as a result of a drug conviction, now faces a charge of resisting arrest.

Hamilton County Jail records did not list an attorney for Elmore.

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. – A Morristown funeral home owner said his daughter drove off an armed man during a robbery of the family business by throwing empty urns at his head. Police said 32-year-old Teresa Mayes was opening Mayes Family Services on Friday morning and found a man armed with a knife waiting for her.

Her father, Buddy Mayes, told The Knoxville News Sentinel that the robber demanded money and she responded by throwing urns from a display. He said one of them obviously landed because the urn was smashed.

The man got away with some cash, but his daughter was not injured.

Mayes said the man may not have realized it was a funeral home, saying “a robbery is a little unusual for us.”

EVERETT, Wash. – Prosecutors in Washington state say an 18-year-old woman stabbed a 19-year-old man for teasing her that her feet smelled. The Herald of Everett reported the man was found by police with a steak knife sticking out of his back, buried a few inches in. His lung had collapsed. Officials said he’ll recover.

Charging papers said trouble started when Dallas Amber Smith was drinking and hanging out with friends and was challenged to do a back flip. When she took off her shoes to do the back flip, the teasing started.

Smith had no criminal history. She faces charges of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon.

Smith’s attorney, Dave Allen of Seattle, declined to comment on the case Friday, saying he’d do that in court.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – A Massachusetts woman has a remarkable souvenir from South Carolina. Maryellen Mara-Christian bagged a 13 1/2-foot, 1,025-pound alligator in Lake Moultrie. Mara-Christian said Friday that she is an experienced hunter, but this was her first gator.

The 48-year-old former bank marketing officer from Fitchburg, Mass., was hunting Wednesday with her husband, who is a firefighter and a part-time hunting guide. It took about two hours to secure the gator before they could shoot it.

The .22-caliber gun they used wasn’t powerful enough to put the animal down, so Mara-Christian used a knife to sever the alligator’s spinal cord.

Meat processor Steve Drummond said the gator had so much fat that only about 40 pounds was usable meat. He will stuff the animal for Mara-Christian to display.

BETHEL, Ohio – For a second time, an Ohio woman has given birth to a baby who couldn’t wait and arrived on the drive to the hospital.

Christina Schuler’s 8-pound, 11-ounce son was born Tuesday in the front seat of the family’s pickup truck. Her husband pulled over less than a mile from their hospital in southwest Ohio’s Clermont County.

The woman from Bethel says her labor was even shorter than it was in December 2006, when she gave birth to her son, Ethan, in a car.

The Schulers also have one other child. The father, Nathan Schuler, says if the couple has any more children, they’ll have to leave for the hospital a lot earlier.

They haven’t decided on a name yet for the new baby.
