Naked violinist arrested for 'lack of attire'

Police warned the violinist to put on clothes as he played his instrument, but he ignored them.

So they arrested Matthew Mglej. But he did not go easily.

Several officers were forced to pick up the naked dude and place him into the patrol car.

Mglej was booked under Portland’s city code that makes it “unlawful for any person to expose his or her genitalia while in a public place or place visible from a public place, if the public place is open or available to persons of the opposite sex.”

The arrest happened as Portland’s annual World Naked Bike Ride was going on. Cops say they don’t arrest anyone during that event, as long as they remain on the designated route.

  • Going into this week's federal budget battle, the White House toyed with a hardball tactic to force congressional Democrats to negotiate on President Donald Trump's priorities. They just might eliminate billions of dollars in disputed 'Obamacare' subsidies. But a study out Tuesday from a nonpartisan group suggests that could backfire. Stopping the Affordable Care Act payments at issue may actually wind up costing the federal government billions more than it would save. The Kaiser Family Foundation found that taxpayers would end up paying 23 percent more than the potential savings from eliminating the health law's 'cost-sharing' subsidies, which help low-income people with insurance deductibles and co-payments. It adds up to an estimated $2.3 billion more in 2018, or an additional $31 billion over 10 years. How's that possible? The short answer is that insurers would still be free to raise premiums, driving federal spending even higher on a separate subsidy provided under the program. 'You end up with a counter-intuitive result,' said Larry Levitt, one of the study's authors. Former Congressional Budget Office director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a Republican economist, reviewed the Kaiser study for The Associated Press and concurred. 'I think this may even be a conservative estimate,' he said. 'It says what's at stake: double-digit premium increases and more money out of the Treasury, not less.
  • Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR’s most popular driver, will retire at the end of the season, his team, Hendrick Motorsports announced. Earnhardt, known as just “Junior,” is the son of the NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr., who was killed in the Daytona 500 in 2001. His grandfather Ralph Earnhardt also raced stock cars. Earnhardt Jr. has won the most popular driver award 14 straight times. In 18 full seasons in NASCAR’s top Cup series, Earnhardt won 26 times, twice in the Daytona 500, in 2004 and 2014. But he never won the series title. His best finish this year is fifth; he is currently 24th in the standings. Earnhardt is 42 years old; his father was killed at 49. Earnhardt was married on New Year’s Eve to Amy Reimann, and he is also returning from a serious concussion that sidelined him last July. It was his second concussion in four years, and it caused him to miss 18 races. “When I got my first concussion, in 1998, it was like, ‘Wow. I feel dizzy, ha ha,'” he said in January. “It’s scary now, knowing everything we know. There’s still a ton to learn. We’re going through such a transition how we talk about concussions, how we treat concussions. It’s very interesting to me. Very educational.” “I do feel like this is a new chapter, for whatever reason,” Earnhardt said before the new season started this year. “I don’t have a vision for what’s going to happen. I don’t know how to explain it, but it feels like a new me.”
  • Panera Bread Co. will hire 10,000 new employees by the end of 2017 as it expands its delivery service, the company said in a statement Monday. According to Panera, the company is planning to expand delivery options to 35 to 40 percent of its locations. It now delivers at 15 percent of its locations. Panera president Blaine Hurst says each café will hire between seven and 12 staff members and drivers. The drivers will use their own vehicles which will be subject to inspection on a regular basis, Hurst said. The delivery service will be digital and mobile ordering-based. The radius will be within an 8-minute drive of the restaurant and will be available between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., seven days a week. The order must be a minimum of $5, and the delivery charge will be $3 in most areas, according to the statement. The expanded delivery service is expected to add $250,000 per year to each store’s annual average revenue of $2.6 million. There are around 2,000 stores in 46 states and Ontario, Canada. Panera is in the process of being acquired by JAB Holding. The deal is reported to be valued at about $7.5 billion.  To find out if Panera delivers in your area, click here.  
  • A Facebook scam is making its rounds on the internet targeting Lowe’s Home Improvements. The Facebook post claims that Lowe’s is offering $50-off coupons for Mother’s Day. When clicking on the Facebook post, a user-friendly survey will appear on a website that resembles Lowe’s website. However, this fraudulent page is a scam and looking to steal your information. Those who participate have no chance of getting a gift card. There is a survey linked to the scam that reads: Congratulations! You have been selected to take part in our short survey to have a chance to get $50 Coupon!We only have 332 coupons remaining so hurry up! 1/3: Have you ever been at Lowe’s? Yes No Don’t remember Customers are also looking to Lowe’s and asking whether the coupon is valid. Lowe’s said the offer is a phishing scam to gather personal information and they aren’t affiliated with the fraudsters in any way. Please be careful when responding to any pop-up ad either online or via social media; as, more often than not, the offer of gift cards or other prizes to customer’s in the guise of a specific company are set up to get your personal information for nefarious purposes. The scam also requires victims to pass it to their friends, officials say. Here are some tips to help you avoid online coupon scams, according to the Better Business Bureau: Check out who is offering the coupon. Verify whether the coupon is legit by visiting the company’s website. Be cautious of pop-up offers. Read the fine print. Watch out for a reward that’s too good to be true. Pay attention to having to enter personal information to win a gift card. Check to see if the coupon is honored by the store. Be wary of required phone calls. Don’t fall for phony coupons via e-mail.
  • The World Health Organization estimates well over 200 million people a year contract malaria, and more than 400,000 die from it - despite the fact that it is treatable with medication. The problem, of course, is that many of the dozens of countries which suffer from outbreaks of malaria, most are impoverished, third-world nations with little access to medical care for their inhabitants. Blessings International, a non-profit based in Broken Arrow, was founded 35 years ago to help distribute medicine to those millions of under-served people. Tuesday, April 25th has been designated as World Malaria Day by the WHO, and Blessings decided they wanted to do something special to attract attention to the problem. They hit upon the idea of setting a new world record for the longest line of pinwheels, according to spokesman David Harder. He says they contacted Guinness World Records to establish the guidelines for setting the record. The pinwheels can be no further than one centimeter apart, apparently, and there has to be at least a thousand of them. “What we’re going to do is try to set up 1,070 pinwheels, and each pinwheel will stand for 200,000 people which are infected (with malaria),” he told KRMG Monday. They’re asking people to sponsor the pinwheels, to help them raise funds. The pinwheels will start going up at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday in front of St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, 4250 West Houston Street (81st), Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Text “nomalaria” to 41444 to donate to Blessings International’s efforts to purchase and distribute medicine for malaria patients. You can also donate to this or other projects on the Blessings International website.
