Remember last fall, when Arby's debuted a venison sandwich in just five states — Pennsylvania, of course, being one of them? Well, the sandwich is back today, PennLive notes, but be sure to go early, because the sandwiches sold out in minutes last year. Even if you don't want to eat it, you could always try to hock it on craigslist, like this guy did last year.
A mother accused of assaulting her daughter's teacher with a brick has been arrested. Police say 29-year-old Daishonta Williams and an unidentified man followed 46-year-old Janice Watkins, a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Pittsburgh King, and assaulted her near the intersection of the West End Bridge and Route 65 earlier this week. Their exact motivation is unclear, but KDKA reports that Williams accused Watkins of having choked her daughter while disciplining the child in school. Police are still looking for the other suspect or suspects involved.
