It was 17 below zero at halftime Sunday in this city about 30 miles northwest of Minneapolis, and his dad said it was too cold to continue the tradition. But the 18-year-old ran outside in his T-shirt and jeans, threw off his socks and shoes, and ran around the block. He was outside only five minutes, but his feet started swelling and blistering when he got back inside. The pain was excruciating. “I consider myself having a high pain threshold, and this was just so 10 out of 10,” he said. “I was, like, chewing on a towel.” He was treated for second-degree frostbite on both feet at the local burn centerand was on crutches and pain medication. His burn specialist said he should be fine, but it’ll take a few weeks. The boy hopes others will learn from his mistake. “I wouldn’t want anyone else to go through this,” he said. World "Chelsie" winner: An Alsatian police dog named Edge cornered two suspects on a cliff side after a grocery store robbery in Napier according to police. One of the suspects leapt down the slope and landed almost directly into the hands of police officers waiting at the bottom. The other suspect, who was armed with a knife, took on Edge and bit the dog in the struggle. “He bit the dog first,” according to the detective sergeant. Edge was unfazed, sinking his teeth into his attacker. The dog ended up winning the fight with the offender taking home one or two lacerations. According to the detective sergeant, the man thought he knew he was going to get bitten, so he bit the dog first. The two men were arrested and appeared in Napier District Court. charged with aggravated robbery for the attack on the grocery store, during which the owner was stabbed. They were ordered to remain in police custody until Feb. 21. Edge underwent emergency surgery last June after an offender stabbed him in the chest with a hunting knife.
