A first for 911 dispatcher?A Utah man who led police on a 30-mile high-speed chase dialed 911 during the incident to tell the cops to stop following him. The 911 dispatcher said the 20-year-old motorist told him during the pursuit “that he was not going to stop and that I needed to leave him alone.” The young man’s father also called the police during the chase, to say that his son was in a bad mood following a fight with his girlfriend, and as a result “wasn’t stopping for the cops.” The suspect was charged with speeding and failure to stop for police.

Holly­wood’s most spoiled petJane Fonda’s dog is Holly­wood’s most spoiled pet, says the National Enquirer. The 73-year-old actress always warms the dog’s blanket in a dryer “to make sure Tulea feels extra snug when she’s relaxing on her cushion,” a source says, and she also places organic aromatherapy spritzes around the home to help Tulea relax. For the dog’s weekly massage, Fonda has two massage tables set up, so she can lie alongside Tulea as they both get a rubdown. “Jane treats Tulea like a queen,” says the source.

Convicted ax murderer takes up tree-choppingA convicted ax murderer has gotten permission to leave jail for a few hours a week so he can chop down trees. Thomas McCulloch, 63, is serving a 30-year sentence for the 1976 triple ax-murder of a nurse, a patient, and a policeman. But he’s being allowed to leave prison on occasion to take a course in wilderness preservation, which includes instruction in tree-chopping. Some prison officials are not happy about it. “I don’t think it’s a good idea to let a murderer like McCulloch near sharp implements such as axes,” said one official. “That could be a disaster waiting to happen.”
