It sold for how much?

A 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo sold for $88,000 at public auction Saturday alongside a host of other items seized by officers from a convicted drug trafficker. Washoe County, Nev., police in 2011 arrested and convicted the drug dealer and found $200,000 in cash, a motorcycle, a Mercedes and the Lamborghini in the process. The winner of the car, whose name was not released, told KTVN-TV in Nevada that "You only live once, so it was an opportunity of a lifetime." The car originally retailed for more than $180,000.

In all, Nicklaus won the 1963, 1965, 1966, 1972, 1975 and 1986 Masters tournaments. Those victories were part of his unprecedented 18 career major championship victories.

Who left the pot on the counter?

A police chief in Laurelville, Ohio, fell ill after eating a cake in his kitchen that he thought was a gift from one of his daughter's friends. After his condition worsened, the man drove himself to the police station for testing and later discovered that the cake had, in fact, been laced with cannabis oil, designed to give users a marijuana high. It's not clear whether he plans to file criminal charges against his daughter's friend.
