Republican legislator Charles Macheers sponsored a bill — passed by the Kansas House but killed last week by the Senate — that sought to exempt any business or government employee from providing services related to any domestic partnership, if doing so would conflict with the employee’s religious beliefs.

  • Man strips naked, straddles vehicle after car crash

    A man was facing multiple charges, police said, after allegedly crashing his car in a multi-vehicle collision, assaulting another man, stripping naked, straddling a vehicle as it drove along a highway, and causing traffic delays on December 11. The incident happened on Route 28 in Virginia. This footage shows the aftermath of the collision. The man can be seen behaving erratically, and strips naked for a period. He is also seen straddling the headboard frame of a vehicle. Police said the man was detained for a short time on the grounds of Dulles Airport, after the events in this footage. “He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries,” police said. “No one else was injured during the crash or assault. Charges are pending as we are working to identify the suspect.”
