A red- faced US se­na­tor had some ex­plain­ing to do af­ter his phone in­ter­rupted a con­gres­sional hear­ing by play­ing a tune from the Dis­ney hit Frozen. Pat Roberts’ hand­set blared the Let It Go ring­tone dur­ing Thurs­day’s fi­nance com­mit­tee hear­ing on US tar­iff pol­icy. The Kansas se­na­tor’s fel­low com­mit­tee mem­bers and staffers laughed as the Os­car- win­ning song’s cho­rus broke off Agri­cul­ture Sec­re­tary Tom Vil­sack’s tes­ti­mony. And prov­ing that politi­cians do have a sense of hu­mour, Se­na­tor Roberts quipped ‘Ah, come on, just let it go’ as he reached for the mute but­ton.

A man who al­legedly had sex with a tree, told po­lice of­fi­cers he was God, shrugged off be­ing tasered twice and tried to stab a cop with his own badge while on pow­er­ful drugs has been ar­rested.

Ken­neth Crow­der, of Mel­bourne, Florida, was trip­ping on flakka, a new drug that au­thor­i­ties say is sweep­ing the state. Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, Crow­der, 41, was spot­ted by wit­nesses run­ning naked through a Mel­bourne neigh­bor­hood, yelling that he was Thor, be­fore rip­ping out two lots of taser probes and try­ing to attack a po­lice of­fi­cer with his own badge.

He was ar­rested on charges of bat­tery on a law en­force­ment of­fi­cer, re­sist­ing with vi­o­lence and as­sault with a deadly weapon on a law en­force­ment of­fi­cer.
