GREENSBURG, Pa. — A man sentenced to at least 20 years in prison in one Pennsylvania courtroom has followed that up by walking into another courtroom to marry his girlfriend.
Greg Howard, 47, was sentenced Thursday in Westmoreland County Court for robbing and assaulting an elderly woman during a home invasion, then allowed to change for his wedding ceremony.
He was allowed to wear civilian clothes instead of a prison jumpsuit. He remained shackled during a brief wedding attended by five deputies and the bride’s baby.
LAWSUIT: PORK ROLL COMPANY FIRED EMPLOYEE FOR PASSING GAS
TRENTON, N.J. — One of New Jersey’s top pork roll makers is being sued by the wife of an employee who she says was fired for passing too much gas in the office.
Louann Clem says in the lawsuit that her husband suffered serious consequences from gastric bypass surgery. Those included extreme gas and uncontrollable diarrhea.
The lawsuit alleges that Case Pork Roll Co. President Thomas Dolan complained about the side effects and told Rich Clem to work from home because he made the office smell. His wife also worked there.
But owner Tom Grieb says neither of them was fired. He says business wasn’t good and they didn’t want to take a pay cut and walked out.
CHRISTIE WEARS FLEECE AGAIN FOR STORM BRIEFING
SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wore a fleece jacket for a media briefing on this weekend’s storms, but it wasn’t THAT fleece.
Christie said Friday that he still has the blue fleece emblazoned with his name that he famously wore during the recovery from Superstorm Sandy. But he says he decided to wear other fleeces given to him by towns across the state.
He says he didn’t break out the “heavy artillery” Friday and will only wear the blue fleece “in case of real emergency.”
Christie says he was given 27 fleeces by towns after Sandy and joked that he went through each methodically Friday before choosing to wear one from Camden County.
