That's no way to answer a reporter's question.

A television reporter asking about a surfacing voter fraud scandal was met with open hostility by an Alabama city commissioner Oct. 6.

According to Jezebel:

WTVY reporter Ken Curtis approached City Commissioner Amos Newsome of Dothan, Alabama to ask if he was planning to resign. Newsome, a Democrat, has been facing calls from fellow city commissioners to resign after three of his campaign workers were convicted of voter fraud. Newsome, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, has not been charged with fraud himself.

Newsome's response to Curtis's questions was, some face-shoving, some yelling, and then, finally, some hitting, hard enough that Curtis staggered backwards.



Curtis later posted a picture of himself on Twitter, showing the result of that slap/scratch.



Dotham police arrested Newsome and charged him with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

If you're looking for something to do on a nice Alabama summer evening, you might as well go hunt some alligators.

That's what these men did and on the first night of hunting season, they landed a record 920-pound, 13 and a half foot beast.

As FOX sports tells it:

It's believed to be the second heaviest alligator ever hunted in Alabama behind a 1,011.5-pound gator caught last year that set a world record at 15 feet and nine inches (that gator cheated, though, with approximately 115 pounds of that coming from a deer in the gator's stomach).

As all of you are probably wondering: What the hell do you do after catching a 920-pound alligator?

Throw a huge Labor Day cookout with 250 pounds of meat. "It won't go to waste," [hunter Scott] Evans said.

Here's another picture:



Here's a gif of it as well:



If they decide not to eat that massive beast, we've got at least one other idea:

Few are as dedicated to their jobs as Dr. Zenko Hrynkiw. When he got word that a patient needed surgery six miles away and Tuesday's snow-induced traffic prevented him from driving, he simply walked. Hrynkiw states that "It wasn't that big of a deal" and "it was kind of a fun journey." He even stopped to help some cars out of a ditch. Watch his news conference here.

A picture that was originally posted to Facebook has now made its way around the web shows a baby in an Alabama onesie posing in the center of an extensive gun collection. One question that has been posed by many of us: is that blanket made by Remington or is it the name of the baby?
