A Mississippi store owner survived a violent robbery when a thief’s bullet hit his wedding ring. Donnie Register says two armed men entered his antiques store in Jackson demanding cash, and one shot at him when he refused. Register reflexively threw up his left hand and the bullet struck his ring, splitting it into two pieces. One fragment is now embedded in his middle finger and “the other part is in his neck,” said his wife, Darlene. “But it’s not life-threatening.”
The dog that was bequeathed $12 million from Leona Helmsley’s real estate fortune has fled to Florida to escape kidnappers, says the New York Post. “Trouble,” a 4-pound Maltese bitch, had been living at Helmsley’s 28-room Connecticut estate, but John Codey, who oversees the dog’s trust fund, says he’s received a number of threats “to kidnap the dog.” To confuse potential kidnapers, her handlers addressed her by the alias “Bauble” while transporting her south in a private plane. She is now being safeguarded by a security team at an undisclosed location, while still dining on meals prepared by a chef.
