Report: Florida man robs home, claims ‘zombies are out to get him'

WEIRD FLORIDA: More strange stories from around the Sunshine State 

A man in Deltona broke into and robbed a home Thursday night claiming he was worried zombies were going to attack him outside, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.

The resident of the home told police he woke up to Patrick Ray , 31, standing in his living room around 3 a.m. after hearing the sound of someone going through his belongings. Ray fled the home when the victim saw him, WKMG reports.

Police said the victim then woke up his son and Ray shortly returned to the home, telling them that “zombies were trying to get him and he felt uncomfortable outside,” WKMG reports.

Surveillance cameras from the home showed Ray breaking into a car on the driveway, taking the house key from the vehicle and using it to enter the home, police said.

Among the items stolen were a pink selfie stick, a Bluetooth speaker, a wallet, jacket and car keys.

Officers arrested Ray on charges of burglary and unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling, WKMG reports. He is currently being held at the county jail on a $17,000 bail, according to public records. 

Report: Florida woman tells trooper ‘I want to kiss you'

MORE WEIRD NEWS: Hash browns recalled for possible contamination with golf balls

A former Florida middle school teacher who faces several charges after police say she drove drunk and caused a crash put on quite a performance for a state trooper.

Saryna Parker, 43, is shown telling the trooper, “I want to kiss you,” in Florida Highway Patrol dashcam video obtained by WTVJ. “If you don’t stop looking at me like that, I’m going to kiss you.”

Parker, who troopers said was driving with her 10-year-old son in the car in the March 19 accident, at first said she wasn’t the driver and tried to leave to use a bathroom, according to the Miami Herald.

As Parker goes through sobriety tests in the video, her speech seems slurred. Parker was arrested and after troopers put her in the patrol car, she kicked one of them in the groin, according to the arrest report.

Parker can also be heard complaining about the students she taught, WTVJ reported.

Miami-Dade Schools officials said Parker was on probation, has been fired and will never be allowed to apply to their schools, according to WTVJ.

Parker was released on bond the next day, WSVN reported. She faces charges of DUI, DUI with property damage, careless driving and battery on a police officer, which is a felony.

Rape case lawyer says women are 'especially good' at lying

A lawyer for a wealthy Tennessee businessman who was later found not guilty in a Memphis rape trial made a comment during closing arguments Thursday that raised some eyebrows.

According to WHBQ, Steve Farese, attorney for Mark Giannini, said women are "especially good" at lying.

"People can be very good at lying," Farese said. "Women can be especially good at it because they're the weaker sex."

Memphis Area Women's Council Executive Director Deborah Clubb told USA Today that she was "stunned" by the comments.

"It's despicable," she said. "It's absolutely despicable."

Farese told USA Today that his job "is not to care if anybody gets offended" and "smart people will see it for what it is."

According to WHBQ, the jury on Friday found Giannini not guilty on all charges in case. A woman had claimed that he raped her in 2014 when she visited his Eads mansion for what she thought was a job interview.

As the verdict was read, the woman had an emotional breakdown in the courtroom. Giannini and Farese embraced one another.

The woman who accused him of rape has filed a $6 million lawsuit against Giannini.

If he had been found guilty, he would have faced up to 15 years in prison without the possibility of parole. 

Donald Trump reveals where he'll be instead of the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Every year, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is one of the social events of the spring. For almost 100 years, journalists, government officials and celebrities have gotten together to crack jokes and eat expensive meals. The event has been attended by Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington. In 2011, then-President Barack Obama roasted Donald Trump (who was in attendance), and some speculate that night was the moment when Trump decided he wanted Obama’s job.

However, this year, now-President Trump won’t be in attendance. His decision came via a tweet in February. While it’s not traditional for a president to skip the event, Trump’s ongoing war with the media had many expecting that he wouldn’t be stopping by the Washington Hilton on the evening of the event.

The last president to skip the event was Ronald Reagan in 1981, though Reagan was recovering from a gunshot wound inflicted during an assassination attempt only days before, and he did call in to the event. Nixon also skipped the dinner twice.

Instead, Trump announced Saturday morning via Twitter that he will be holding a rally next weekend in Pennsylvania.

The White House has not said where the rally will be held, and Trump’s website does not have any rallies listed. His last event was in Nashville in March.

Two 16-year-old boys are accused of luring Deserae to join them after school, then shot her in the back of her head. Prosecutors say they stole her belongings and left her in a dry canal.

KSL reports that friends who were searching for her later found her unconscious in the canal.

The teenage boys, who remain unnamed because they are minors, are charged with attempted aggravated murder, aggravated robbery and obstruction of justice.

Authorities testified during hearings that the teenage boys came up with the plan to “get rid” of Deserae while playing video games because one of the boys was tired of getting messages from Deserae on Snapchat.

On Thursday, Deserae appeared at a press conference smiling and holding her mother’s hand. Pieces of the bullet still remain inside her head.

“I am so thankful to be here today, to be alive,” Deserae said. “I told by dad that I am tougher than a bullet. It is still with me today.”

At the press conference, Deserae wore a T-shirt that had the word “happy” written on it.

“It says happy on it, and I’m happy to go home,” Deserae said.
