Bonehead Of The Day:

An Indianapolis man was arrested for pretending to be a cop so he could get a free meal at Applebee's.

The 46-year-old finished his meal and then told the waitress he didn't have any money to pay his bill.  He then flashed a badge and asked if he could leave and go to an ATM.

The waitress wrote his plate number down as he left and called the cops when he didn't show back up to pay.

Cops say the badge he flashed was a security badge and not police issued.

He was arrested for theft and impersonating a police officer. He could get three years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

Parents Punish Their Daughter By Selling Her One Direction Tickets

Parents (in Australia) were so upset after their daughter lied to them, they put her One Direction tickets up for sale on eBay.

The girl lied about going to a sleepover so she and her friend could go hang out at an older guy's house.

They put all four tickets up for sale with a scathing two paragraph explanation why they did it, including:

"I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now..... But I don't care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult.. not nuture bad habits in my teen age child"
