And you thought that paying $14.99 a pound for halibut was a bit steep?
Dustin Heathman, 25, might be paying up to $500 for every extra bass — the daily limit is five — after he bragged on the Austin Bass Fishing Forum website that he had "put around 40 fish in the boat with 22 keepers" and Texas wildlife officials saw it.
Heathman said he deserved to keep that many, Yahoo! News reported, because he usually throws them back and he needed them for a family fish fry.
Something tells us the judge isn't going to take that bait on this one.
Exhibit A's a doozy
UFC fighter Jason Miller was arrested — naked — inside a church in Mission Viejo, Calif., on Monday after allegedly breaking in and spraying a fire extinguisher inside the building.
Defense lawyers certainly have their work cut out for them. Miller's nickname is "Mayhem."
In case you've lost track, Chad Johnson switched his surname to Ochocinco and then back to Johnson again.
Now his name is Mudd.
On second thought ...
The St. Louis Rams have canceled two games scheduled for London because:
a) Sunday's 38-3 exhibition loss shows their road act still needs a little work.
b) They discovered the losing players don't get awarded silver medals.
Hold that gold
Belarussian shot-putter Nadzeya Ostapchuk was stripped of her gold medal just hours after the close of the Olympics because she tested positive for steroids.
On the bright side, Ostapchuk threw her shot in disgust upon hearing the news — and bettered her Olympic mark by 5 ½ feet.
