Someone's in TONNES of trouble! Australian and US authorities have seized more than 1.7 tonnes of ‘ice’ bound for Australia. Luckily we worked with our US buddies and were able to stop the shipment before it reached our shores. This is the largest ever shipment of methylamphetamine bound for Australia and the largest ever domestic seizure of meth on record in the US. If it had made it to Australian streets, it’s estimated to be worth approximately $1.29 billion dollars and equates to some 17 million hits. Six people have been arrested for their alleged involvement. Help us celebrate and post your best ice puns below. 👇👇👇

A drunk passenger on a flight from Calgary to London forced a plane to land. It cost him $16,000.

Auto Europe Car Rentals

David Stephen Young, 44, was ordered by a judge to pay WestJet for 20,000 tons of wasted fuel the pilot dumped over Alberta to safely land the aircraft back in Calgary on Jan. 4.

The fine came after he pleaded guilty last week to resisting arrest and failing to comply with safety instructions during the fight, according to USA Today.

Young had reportedly had six alcoholic beverages pre-flight and became unruly after take-off.

According to the court documents, passengers and the crew “were left shaken and threatened by [Young’s] behavior” that was “verbally aggressive.”

The actual burden to WestJet could eclipse $150,000 when including costs such as passenger reimbursement, the paper reported. Provincial Judge Brian Stevenson gave WestJet the option to pursue damages through a civil case. The airline declined to say if it planned to do so.
