Home invasion suspect says he was 'just kidding'

NEW CASTLE — Police are looking for a man who forced his way into a South Side home.

A Pollock Avenue resident told New Castle police he had heard someone knocking at his back door Saturday morning. When he answered, the resident told police, a man holding a small knife forced his way into the house, then grabbed a butcher knife from a wooden block.

The man said he fought the intruder, who ran out with the butcher knife.

The resident told police the man, who had left his hat behind, returned a while later and said he was “just kidding.”

A neighbor told police she had seen the man bury the knife in the snow off Phillips Street.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
