The man whose son has been referred to as “affluenza teen” for the past few years after his DUI conviction is currently facing his own charges for allegedly choking his girlfriend intensely enough to restrict her breathing.

53-year-old Fredrick Couch and his girlfriend Brandi Gober allegedly had an interaction on July 14, for which Couch has been accused of putting his hands around the woman’s throat and pressing so hard that she had a hard time breathing.

Couch and Gober reportedly live together in Fort Worth, and details about what may have transpired leading to the allegations against Couch have not been released at this time.

A man who was legally ordered quarantined after being exposed to the measles reportedly snuck past officers posted at his home so that he could hit the gym for a workout.

Brookfield, Wisconsin, resident Jeffrey Murawski, age 57, was the guest of a hotel last April, and it was discovered that a family who was also staying there had the measles.

When the health department was alerted about the incident, they ordered that Murawski, who was unable to provide proof that he had been vaccinated, to remain inside of his home for a period of 21 days so that the disease would not be spread if he had contracted it.

A student of University of Texas at Austin has been accused of driving while intoxicated after she smashed her car into a restaurant on Monday morning. She allegedly became confrontational with the officers when they tried to detain her.

21-year-old Esther Shim is a junior at UT’s College of Communication. She was driving in an area near campus dubbed The Drag which houses a strip of university shops and restaurants. Around 2:30am she was said to have driven her car through the front windows of a restaurant called Poke Bowl, and the momentum of the vehicle came to a stop when it plowed through the interior and into the bathroom of the establishment.

Two patrolling officers in the area heard Shim’s squealing tires and the sound of the collision. When they arrived at the site they found much of the restaurant structure had crumpled from the accident and was surrounding Shim’s car, trapping her inside.
