LINDSAY LOHAN is suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto 5, claiming they used her image without permission. Lindsay apparently feels that a woman holding a cell phone on the cover of the game looks like her and the game itself features a mission where another woman that looks like her asks the player to take her home and escape the paparazzi. Another part of the game shows another character resembling Lindsay at a hotel that looks like the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, where she once lived and is known to hang out.

When Patrick Moote proposed to his girlfriend in front of thousands of people at a UCLA basketball game, he was humiliated when she turned him down. Patrick was perhaps even more humiliated by her reason for turning him down. Apparently she felt he had a small penis. However, instead of living in shame, Patrick decided to make a documentary about his shortcomings called Unhung Hero. In the film, Patrick confronts ex-girlfriends, doctors, anthropologists and even adult film stars to find out if size matters. (See trailer here)

When a Minneapolis Star Tribune delivery driver stepped out of his truck to deliver papers to a convenience store, Garrett Howard Hurlbut helped himself to the vehicle. The truck was later found parked in the middle of an intersection a little over a mile from the store with Hurlbut nearby. Not surprisingly, he smelled strongly of alcohol and registered at more than twice the legal limit on a breath test. What will likely surprise you is that Hurlbut told officers that he jumped or fell from the truck and that he was running from zombies. Hurlbut suffered lacerations on his head and was taken to a hospital, where he made further statements about taking the truck because he was "afraid he was being chased."
