Augusta, GA - AN INDIAN MAN SWALLOWED 12- BARS OF GOLD, TO KEEP FROM PAYING TAXES ON THEM.
EACH WEIGHS 33 GRAMS.
DOCTORS HAD TO REMOVE THE BARS FROM THE 63 YEARS OLDS STOMACH.
NOW THE GOLD BARS ARE NOW IN POLICE CARE - AND THE  ACCUSED SMUGGLER IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR TAX EVASION…

HERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT *NOT* TO DO IF YOU'RE HARD UP FOR CASH.
IN TENNESSEE, POLICE ARREST A MAN THEY SAY FAKED BEING HELD HOSTAGE IN ORDER TO GET A RANSOM -- FROM HIS MOM!
HIS MOTHER CALLED POLICE AFTER HER SON SENT HER TEXT MESSAGES CLAIMING HIS "DEALER" WAS GOING TO KILL HIM IF HE DIDN'T GET 200 DOLLARS.
BUT SHE WAS SUSPICIOUS -- SHE SAYS HE'D PULLED A SIMILAR STUNT IN THE PAST TO TRY TO GET MONEY FOR DRUGS.
SHE CALLED 9-1-1, AND POLICE ARRANGED A DROP-OFF SPOT FOR THE MONEY.
THE 25-YEAR-OLD  SHOWED UP, POLICE RAN HIM DOWN AND ARRESTED HIM.


A COUPLE IS TRYING TO MAKE THE REST OF THEIR DYING DOG'S LIFE A DREAM COME TRUE. 
 ROXY IS 12-YEAR-OLD ...SHE HAS CANCER ...THEY'VE HAD HER SINCE SHE WAS 8 WEEKS-OLD AND SO  THEY DECIDED TO CREATE A LIST OF HER FAVORITE ACTIVITIES TO KEEP HER AS HAPPY AS POSSIBLE.
SO FAR ROXY'S BEEN TREATED TO A PRIVATE DAY AT THE CANINE STYLES DOG SPA WHERE SHE SOAKED IN A JACUZZI TUB FILLED WITH ESSENTIAL OILS... AND WAS ALSO SURPRISED WITH  HER VERY OWN DOGGY CAKE.
HER OWNERS HAVE ALSO POSTED ROXY'S BUCKET LIST ON FACEBOOK AND SAY THE RESPONSE FROM PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE.
AND WHILE THE FAMILY ISN'T SURE HOW MUCH TIME THEY'LL HAVE LEFT WITH ROXY... THEY SAY SEEING HER SMILE EACH TIME AN ITEM IS CHECKED OFF THE LIST MAKES THE FUTURE LOSS MUCH EASIER TO BEAR.



PROM IS THE BIGGEST EVENT OF THE YEAR FOR HIGH SCHOOLERS...
BUT ONE NORTH CAROLINA STUDENT SAYS SHE WAS KICKED OUT OF HER SENIOR PROM BECAUSE OF WHAT SHE WAS WEARING.
MARK DAVENPORT HAS THE STORY.
A PAIR OF RED JEANS...AT THE CENTER OF A HIGH SCHOOL PROM CONTROVERSY.
SHAFER RUPARD WORE "Tight red pants and a black dress shirt, hat, black shoes....INSTEAD OF A GOWN TO PROM.
SHE WASN'T ON THE DANCE FLOOR FOR FIVE MINUTES, WHEN HER SENIOR PROM WAS ENDED ABRUPTLY...
Teacher tapped me on the shoulder. She had a problem with what I was wearing. I thought it was because of the hat or the leather jacket and I was like well I'll take those off and she was like no...it' the pants..."
