COSTCO SAMPLE FIGHT

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Who cut the cheese — line? It’s a question police in Greenville, South Carolina are trying to answer as they sort out a spat between two senior citizens at a Costco store. Authorities say a 72-year-old man cut ahead of a 70-year old man waiting for a free cheese sample. It happened again when the 70-year-old was waiting for a cheeseburger sample. First words were exchanged, then blows. The worker at the cheeseburger sample stand says the older man smacked the 70-year-old, knocking his hat and glasses off. The 72-year-old said he swung first because he felt the other man was aggressive — and about to hit him. Police are trying to find out if surveillance video can help them sort things out. Meanwhile, there have been no arrests.

TOM BRADY - TATTOO

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Meeting a football hero can leave an impression etched in a young person’s mind. Or skin, if you’re the young Connecticut woman who wanted a lasting reminder of the time Tom Brady signed his autograph on her arm. After practice Monday night, Brady signed 19-year-old Megan Uhrynowski’s arm. A friend who was with suggested she have the autograph turned into a tattoo. She did — the very next day. Whether she will regret her decision down the road isn’t clear. But for now, the newly-tatted Brady fan says getting her arm signed by the New England Patriots quarterback “was probably like the coolest thing.”

BABY MOTORIST CITED

MALDEN, Mass. (AP) — It was one of those aww moments for a 1-year-old motorist and a police officer in the Boston suburb of Malden, Massachusetts. The youngster was tooling along the sidewalk in a red toy Mercedes convertible. An officer pulled his cruiser behind Grayson Salerno, switching on his blue flashing lights. The child got a “cuteness warning.” And all of it has become must-see viewing on social media. To top it off, it’s unclear whether the younger “offender” gets all of this. He was wearing a T-shirt with the words, “I have literally no idea what you are saying.”
