Messages Not Received: (1) John Biehn, 39, in court in Rockville, Connecticut, on Dec. 15 on an old DUI charge, was released on bail but managed to get arrested (and released on bail) three more times in two towns over the following 11 hours -- twice for DUI and once for shoplifting. (2) On Nov. 30, an allegedly intoxicated Dwayne Fenlason, 48, drove his pickup truck into a ditch in Pomfret, Vermont, bringing a DUI citation -- and then subsequently drove an SUV to the scene to pull the truck out (earning a second DUI), and then an all-terrain vehicle to the scene (and a third DUI).

(1) Sherwin Shayegan (the man revisited here three months ago for his longtime habit of demanding piggyback rides from high school athletes) was arrested in December in Maryland on charges from Virginia's Fauquier and Loudoun counties, where he had mingled with players at boys' high school basketball and hockey games and in locker rooms, acting "creepy" and getting ejected. (2) At about the time News of the Weird updated Indonesia's "Sex Mountain" ritual, the governor of Central Java banned the practice because of the "shame" it brings to Indonesia (because prostitutes now flood the area, however, the Jakarta Post doubted that the ban would be respected by would-be "pilgrims," who believe that sex with strangers brings prosperity).
