Breakfast reading from the Voice Media Empire: When police arrived at the door of Missouri resident Andrew Bush -- who had allegedly just stolen a car -- he had something to show them: his assault rifle. When he pointed it in their direction, the officers fired back. It got ugly quickly. Riverfront Times has the story.
Apparently life really does imitate art. Just weeks before the release of Harmony Korine's beach-babes-with-handguns movie Spring Breakers hits theaters, a woman in Daytona Beach for spring break had a two-hour armed standoff with police inside her hotel room.
The problems started on Wednesday when Heather Beaver, who is 21, started yelling at her boyfriend at a biker bar after she discovered he had been cheating. The two got in a fight at the bar, but Beaver ultimately went back to her room at the Sun and Surf motel alone. Miami New Times has the story.
