The Portland Police Department in Oregon released a new video . . . that shows some ducks interfering with official police business.
It's dash-cam footage of a traffic cop who was about to pull someone over for driving 52 in a 35. But while he was trying to catch up to them, he saw a duck and two ducklings in the middle of the road.
And instead of just avoiding them, he stopped his car in the middle of the highway, and chased them off to safety!!
According to the video, the speeping driver got away .. lucky break for that driver.

I am a very big fan of SLEEP!! I think it is very under-rated too .. it has so many health benefits that we should all strive to get as close to 7-8 a night as possible.
It can be hard with all our demanding schedules though to get a great night sleep .. so anything that can help out I'm all about trying.
If you are too, maybe it's a simple as repainting your bedroom.
A new study ranks 10 bedroom paint colors by how they affect SLEEP and MOOD.
The study found people with BLUE walls average the most sleep, seven hours and 52 minutes per night. Blue isn't just calming . . . the color blue triggers special receptors in our eyes that aid our body's natural sleep rhythms.
PURPLE walls are the worst for sleep, at five hours and 56 minutes. Purple is a STIMULATING color that makes it tougher for your brain to shut down.
Brown came in second-to-last, at six hours and five minutes of sleep . . . but that might be because people in brown bedrooms have the MOST SEX.
People in red bedrooms have the least . . . even though red is supposed to be SEXY.
Here are all 10 bedroom colors, ranked from most sleep to least sleep:
Blue, yellow, green, silver, orange, red, gold, gray, brown, and purple.
New Way Trucks of Scranton, Pennsylvania have devised a clever way to show that their garbage trucks have the stuff to crush even the most challenging trash.
They loaded an entire Pontiac Grand Am into the back of one of its Cobra Magnum and crush that thing up like it's a tin can!!

I grew up in Orchard Park NY, home of Rich Stadium (yeah it'll alwasy be Rich to me) where the Buffalo Bills play, so OJ Simpson was a real hero for me growing up. He lost all my respect and admiration back in 1995 when he went on the slow speed chase.
I've always believed he did kill Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman back in 1995 and was allowed to walk away from that horrendous crime punishment free. He then went on to terrorize several other people that we heard about in the news who knows how many kept quiet .. a driver he attacked in a road rage incident .. a girlfriend he 'allegedly' beat up several times who dropped charges .. and then his blazen crime in Vegs that finally got him busted and sent to jail ..
So I'm thrilled to hear the judge in that case, doesn't think he'll be getting out of prison with this latest attempt at a new trial. And it makes me very happy to see him looking so bad .. at least we know he's not living in the lap of luxery any more and may can't enjoy life as much as he was before jail. A small price to pay considering what he did to Nicole and Ron may they R.I.P..
Wow what timing for the guy.
Richard Cerezo was going through his old lottery tickets, which he kept in a cookie jar, and then took them to the 7-Eleven to see if he had any winners. For one of them, they told him he needed to file a claim, which, meant the ticket was worth at least $600. But after all was said and done it was a HUGE winner $4.85 MILLION.
Of course a good lesson .. if you buy a lottery ticket CHECK the NUMBERS .. don't just stash them in a cookie jar and forget them. What if it had been 1 day too late when he found it .. that would be the worst regret ever!
