Dude looks a natural in orange

A New York state man drank beer while holding his girlfriend and their two children captive in their home for a week…

The woman was finally able to get assistance by convincing the boyfriend, Benito Lopez, she was playing games on the computer…

Lopez…was arrested Monday after probation officers were tipped the girlfriend, their son, 11, and daughter, 12 had been hostage in their home since New Year’s Eve.

Sullivan County deputies said Lopez disconnected the phone and confiscated electronic devices and car keys to prevent anyone calling for help.

The girlfriend eventually got help through Facebook by pretending she was playing computer games, police said.

Police said they found the equivalent of 15 cases of empty beer cans, as well as some liquor bottles.

Lopez was on probation for felony drunken driving

The dude should be locked up until he dries out. Should only take 10-20 years.

In this photo provided by Minnesota State Patrol, a semi truck is submerged in an icy pond in Monticello, Minn. on Friday, Jan. 6, 2012. The Minnesota State Patrol says the driver was taken to a local hospital, treated and released. Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske says the driver was pulling a Target trailer, left eastbound I-94, crossed over lanes of oncoming traffic and skidded onto the pond. Roeske says the semi skidded 100 to 200 yards across the ice before breaking through.

Looking at videos of the accident, the ice appears thick enough that the driver almost – that’s almost – made it across the pond.
