Cops caught egging superior officer’s home

NEWTON, Mass.: Massachusetts police responding to reports of teenagers tossing eggs at a house last month got quite a surprise when they tracked down the suspects. A department spokesman tells The MetroWest Daily News the three people who egged the house in Framingham early Dec. 11 were fellow law enforcement officers serving with the Newton police. They were off duty at the time.
They told Framingham police the egging incident was “a prank, a joke between friends.” The homeowner is a Newton police sergeant and their superior officer. He says is handling the matter internally. No charges were filed, and the Newton officers were not publicly identified.

Brewery on backfoot after Egyptian keeper declines Man of the Match award

MOSCOW: Budweiser say they “respect the religious beliefs” of all players after Egyptian keeper Mohamed Elshenawy declined his man-of-the-match award sponsored by the American beer giant at the World Cup.
Elshenawy was nominated after his stoic efforts holding off Uruguay striker Luis Suarez in Egypt’s 1-0 defeat to the South Americans in their World Cup opener on Friday.
But the 29-year-old turned down the award due to his Muslim faith.
Budweiser told AFP on Monday: “We respect the religious beliefs of all players and worked with FIFA to put a process in place for Man of The Match winners who wish to not be featured with the Budweiser branding for religious reasons.
“Official Man of The Match winners who decline the Bud trophy for religious reasons will still receive full honors, such as Mohamed Elshenawy did, and we congratulate him on his accomplishment.”
