An alert motorist exposed a couple's naked hitchhiking fantasy before it
could be completed, and the boyfriend ended up in jail.
In the couple's fantasy, the boyfriend, Christopher Barbour, was to pick up
a nude hitchhiker, his 23-year-old girlfriend, police said.
Barbour, 35, dropped his girlfriend off on a rural road at about 11:30
Monday night, planning to loop around and pick her up.
The fantasy unraveled when the woman, seeing headlights coming down the
lane, darted into the road to flag her ride.
"She jumped out there with no clothes on and her thumb out," police
spokeswoman Kim Chinn said. It was an innocent motorist, not Barbour.
The female motorist raced around the block to a fire station and reported
the incident. Barbour arrived moments later, and so did police.
Barbour was charged with drunken driving and released on $500 bail. His
girlfriend, who was not identified by police, was not charged.
Spearfish, South Dakota:
It's the drink of choice among discriminating porcupines. It's salty. It's
delicious. It's brake fluid.
So many of the pesky, prickly vermin have been sneaking into one campground
-- the Rod and Gun Campground in Little Spearfish Canyon -- slipping under
campers' vehicles, gnawing through brake lines and draining them dry that
the U.S. Forest Service had to close the campground last week.
There have been no accidents, but more than a dozen vehicles have been
damaged. Experts say porcupines may be drinking the stuff just for the
taste of it.
