Lion Swipes at 1-Year-Old Boy

The video of an Oregon boy's visit to the zoo is getting national attention. A lioness, behind glass at the Portland Zoo, swipes and unsuccessfully tries to bite 1-year-old Jack. Keepers at the zoo think the toddler's striped jacket may have tricked the big cat into thinking Jack was a small zebra. Luckily the glass kept Jack out of harm's way.

An underaged college student was busted trying to get into a bar with a driving license that didn't belong to him — but did belong to the bouncer checking IDs at the door.

Steven J. Fiorella, a 19-year-old student at the University of Iowa who originally hails from Chicago, handed over a stolen license, trying to pass it off as his own to go drinking around 1 a.m. Saturday, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported.

The trouble, according to the paper, was that the bouncer immediately recognized the face on the ID as his own.

Fiorella also had the bouncer's debit card and AAA membership card on him. He told the cops he bought all of them for $20 at a party after they were reported stolen in February.

Fiorella was charged with fifth-degree theft and unlawful use of another person's ID, according to the Press-Citizen.
