Meet the newest member of New Jersey's finest: Donald Duck.

On Halloween, New Jersey police in Ft. Lee used a cop dressed in a Donald Duck mascot suit to try to catch drivers who weren't yielding to pedestrians.

Donald would step into the crosswalk, and if the cars didn't stop, police would chase them down further down the road.

One of the women who didn't stop for Donald was Karen Haigh, who received a $230 fine and was terrified more than anything else.

"They told me that I was getting a ticket for not stopping for a duck," she said. "But it scared me. I'm a woman. This huge duck scared me."

But what about Donald Duck? Lurking around the city pantsless must be breaking some sort of decency law in New Jersey too, right?

In a scene that sounds straight out of a video game, police officers and a helicopter descended on a Washington home Thursday, after receiving a 911 call that the family inside was being held hostage.

According to Komo News:

"The caller said he had an assault rifle and he had placed explosives in the yard and he was holding a family hostage," said Nathan Elledge, chief of police at the Sammamish Police Department. "He wanted $20,000 to release the family."

It turns out that the call was actually made by a computer, and the owner of the home is a top exec at Bungie, the game developer behind "Halo" and the recent hit "Destiny."

And on top of all that, investigators think the suspect "has ties to the video game community."

Let the conspiracy theories begin.

24-year old Riley Swearingen thought nothing about his drunken joke on a police officer.

According to the criminal complaint, Mankato Department of Public Safety Police Sergeant Adam Gray was talking with a driver of a "drunk bus" in the city's entertainment district when he "felt two fingertips that were obvious to him as wet with saliva being pushed into his right and left ear canals, which caused pressure and discomfort in his ear canals."

The officer turned and saw a man later identified as Swearingen tell his friends, "I just gave the cop a wet Willie."

"Sergeant Gray immediately proceeded after the male who assaulted him," the complaint continues.

Once he was apprehended, Swearingen told Gray he was just joking around and was sorry, but Gray arrested him anyway.
