  1. Lawyer sends dog faeces to private detectives hired by ex-wife

    An Illinois lawyer has appeared in court accused of sending a box of dog faeces to private detectives hired by his ex-wife.

    R Edward Bates is charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly sending the material last November after a bitter divorce and custody battle.

    It's reported he was upset because he believed the investigators were going through his rubbish.

    The box containing the faeces alarmed the private investigators, who contacted police. They called in a bomb squad, which blasted open the container.

    Inside, they found a plastic bag of household rubbish and at least 10 smaller bags of dog faeces, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

    In court, Bates' own legal team said he was only trying to ease a tense situation when he mailed the box to the investigators.
