She takes being a "car lover" to an entirely different level. This is "Crappy News" for Thursday, May 3rd, 2018.

Barton, VT- A guy had a run-in with police after doing what most of us wish we could.

68-year-old Leroy Mason was cooking in his apartment Monday afternoon when his smoke alarm started going off.

He'd reported numerous false alarms in the past, but the fire department refused to do anything. Mason FINALLY had enough of the beeping...and blasted the smoke detector with a shotgun. One of the rounds hit an adjoining wall and his neighbor called 911.

Police showed up and took Mason's shotgun...but then he pulled out a pistol and threatened to shoot the cops if they didn't give it back. There was a brief standoff before police were able to disarm him.

Mason is being charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor reckless endangerment. [Newport Dispatch]

But seriously...who HASN'T wanted to shoot their smoke detector?

Washington, D.C.- A professional sports team is facing more controversy. And this time, it's NOT about its name.

Cheerleaders for the NFL's Washington Redskins have filed a complaint against the team following a risque photo shoot. The 36-woman squad went to Costa Rica for the shoot back in 2013, and some of the cheerleaders say they were forced to pose topless.

The shoot was in an exotic location, so it may not have been so bad...except that the Redskins invited male spectators. A contingent of sponsors and stadium suite holders were granted up-close access to the photo shoots.

Some of the women also described a boat trip in 2012, in which men shot alcohol into cheerlearders' mouths with turkey basters and handed out cash prizes for "twerking" contests. [New York Times]

Just when you thought having racially-insensitive was the worst of your problems...

West Norriton, PA- A woman was spotted running into traffic, but not for the reason you may think.

Police received a call last month about a woman running between cars on a local road. Two other women were chasing her and trying to get her back home. Turns out, the woman has a condition known as mechanophilia--a sexual attraction to vehicles and machines--and the women chasing her were her home health aides.

Police tracked her down at a parking lot...which must have felt like some kind of automotive orgy to her.

Cops reminded her that walking in front of moving cars was a bad idea and took her home. When they got there, the woman began kissing and hugging an SUV she called "Husky Bear." She has not been charged. [The Smoking Gun]

So...when she tells you she's a car lover...she REALLY means it.
