    A California Highway Patrol officer came to the aid of newborns in the state capital this week, but it was a bit different than the usual story.

    The CHP says Officer A. Montano responded Monday to a disabled vehicle on the center divider of U.S. 50 south of downtown Sacramento.

    It turned out the driver was on her way to the University of California, Davis, veterinary hospital with a couple of newborn piglets.

    The officer stayed with the motorist until help arrived, and had a photo taken showing him cuddling a tiny pink porker.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
