Somehow the story is even worse than that sounds.

Kam Brock, @Akilahbrock, was pulled over by New York police and her car impounded when officers suspected she was driving under the influence of marijuana (none was found in the vehicle). After getting upset with officers and undergoing a medical evaluation, doctors thought she was suffering from a mental disorder - thinking her claims of being followed by Barack Obama on Twitter were bunk.

The only problem is that Barack Obama DOES follow @AkilahBrock, and around 640,000 other people. And now Brock is faced with thousands in medical bills after being sent to a facility. She's now pursuing legal action as a result of these stupid, insane events.

Christian Bale Assaulted in China While Trying to Meet Blind Lawyer & Activist

While in China to promote a movie, Christian Bale attempted to meet a personal hero, Chen Guangcheng, a blind lawyer and activist who is confined to his home and guarded by Chinese police. The police pushed and punched Bale and members of the film crew with him, and they then chased the actor's car as he fled the location.

Personally, I would have loved to see Bale go all Batman on those policemen.
