  • A Queens inventor is selling a eucalyptus-scented trash bags that he's found repel rats and raccoons. They're so effective that most of the 2,000 residential buildings his company sells janitorial supplies to have made the switch, and they are being used in Central Park.

  • Man on Brooklyn Carjacking Spree Killed by the Po-Po... A man who carjacked two vehicles at gunpoint then crashed both of them and threatened EMS people trying to help him was fatally shot by police last night after he pointed and fired his weapon at them. No lucky 7-7-7 for him.

  • A helicopter on a sightseeing tour of Manhattan made an emergency landing in the Hudson River yesterday afternoon, leaving all eight people aboard drenched but not seriously harmed. Lucky 7-7-7 for them. AP has a crappy video of the crash that looks more like a flipbook. Sorry, guys.

  • Former NFL player and Fox Sports broadcaster Bill Maas was charged with drug possession and weapons charges following a roadside safety check. The 45-year-old Maas and a passenger in his Hummer, Sarah J. Murphy, 27, were arrested late Friday by Illinois State Police. During the stop, police indicated Maas seemed nervous, and he agreed to a search of his vehicle. Police found a .22-caliber revolver, 5 grams of cheeba, 6 grams of snow and 28 Ecstasy tabs. Maas and Murphy were charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. Maas was also booked on a charge of unlawful use of a weapon. Holla!

  • I told you... from 1010 WINS: "Everything oldies is new again. WCBS-FM, the nation's No. 1 oldies station for more than three decades until a 2005 switch, is ready to shift from its current "Jack" format and re-embrace the classic sounds of its past, according to online reports." I hope by online reports they don't mean this blog.

  • Police are investigating claims that a pregnant Hasidic woman was attacked with a knife after she accepted a ride from a man who also appeared to be a Hasidic Jew. That is f*cked. I didn't know people still hitchhiked.

  • That tennis match I somehow found myself watching yesterday, Venus Williams won. I guess its her 4th Wimbledon title. I wrote "I guess" to make it sound like I didn't know this and preserve my impeccable street cred.
