Today was full of strange news for Kevin Deutsch (left), a veteran cops reporter and Miami Herald alum who now covers southern Palm Beach County for The Palm Beach Post.
First he reported on a bag of seriously hot potato chips. How hot were they? En fuego. For real, the chips caught on fire. Investigators are checking whether some roofing materials may have sparked the blaze. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they determine it was spontaneous combustion.
Next up, Deutsch tells the tale of a Delray Beach man pulled over by state troopers after he was seen punching his girlfriend while driving. Still feeling fiesty when the cuffs came out, Malcolm Straghn kicked an FHP trooper and tried to kick out the window of a patrol car, police said.
That must be a violation of, like, four of the Vatican's 10 Commandments of Driving.
