Hers is bigger

A flasher in Washington state got more than he bargained for when he exposed himself to a woman and her 6-year-old son.

The 35-year-old woman and child were walking along a lake when the man approached her "aggressively," unzipped his pants and said, "Miss, miss. Could you watch this? You need to watch this."

Instead, the woman indicated that he should look at her Ruger .38-caliber pistol.

"I put the magazine in my gun. I cocked it," the woman told The Daily News online. "I said, 'You need to leave or I'll shoot you. I'm going to blow your brains out.' "

"Oh, [expletive]!" the man declared, before running away.

Oh, deer

Blood dripping from the back of an SUV led to the arrest of two California men accused of illegally shooting a deer, then stabbing it to death in their vehicle when it suddenly came to and began to struggle.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports Scott Lee, 46, and Nai Saechao, 32, were arrested on poaching, animal cruelty and other charges.

California Highway Patrol officers pulled the vehicle over after receiving several calls about blood seeping from the back of a Toyota SUV.

Police found both men spattered in blood, with the hacked-up carcass in the back.

They'll get high -- but not that high

A 63-year-old Arizona preacher is accused of selling drugs to "bring people closer to God," authorities say.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the arrest of the Rev. Mark Derksen Sr. came after authorities learned that the pastor had allegedly sold drugs from his home a block from town hall and a sheriff's station.

Investigators allegedly found heroin, prescription drugs, a shotgun and a pistol inside the residence.

Arpaio said Derksen, who also was a youth counselor and ministered at nursing homes, believed he would "bring people closer to God" by helping them get off drugs but actually was fueling their addictions.
