* Hitman Chanh Thong Vo, 24, was killed in what was most likely a contract
murder in Toronto in December.  Vo was known in the community for favoring
the front waistband of his jeans to hold his .45-calibre handgun, and
because of an earlier accident in holstering his gun, he was known as No
Wang Vo. [Globe and Mail, 12-21-95]

* A judge in Shelburne, Nova Scotia, jailed Frank Edward Gould, 48, in
November for 45 days on a DUI charge.  A police officer spotted Gould's
truck weaving on the highway, and as Gould pulled into a gas station, the
officer drove in behind him.  According to the officer, Gould got out,
became disoriented, walked back to the patrol car, leaned in, and told the
officer, "Fill 'er up." [Welland Tribune-CP, Nov95]

* From the Police Report, Wauwatosa (Wis.) News-Times, October 26, 1995:
"A man who was found in a women's restroom at Mayfair Mall was issued a
citation for disorderly conduct Oct. 17.  The man admitted to police that
he had entered the restroom because he thought it would be a good place to
meet women." [Wauwatosa News-Times, 10-26-95]

* Nashville, Tenn., police were called to a laundromat in January after a
customer reported that a man had come in from the rain, soaking wet, put a
few coins in a dryer, climbed in, and was getting tumble-dried. [The
Tennessean, 1-19-96]
