Mothers are known for being good at multitasking, but an Arizona woman took it to a whole new level.

When Shannon Geise, 31, woke up just after midnight on Nov. 7 to painful contractions and her water breaking, the mother of four told azcentral.com she thought she had time to make it to the hospital for the birth of her son.

The baby, already named Sebastian, had other ideas.

Geise was going to call for a ride, but as the contractions became more severe, she placed her toddler daughter Olivia in the SUV and began the drive to the hospital. Her other children were staying with their father, azcentral.com reported. 

While Olivia watched the "Angry Birds" movie in the backseat, Geise quickly came to the conclusion that she was going to have to deliver the baby in the vehicle. She delivered Sebastian and called 911. The operator told her to wait for an ambulance but Geise said it would be quicker for her to drive there, as she was just minutes away. So holding on to her newborn son with one arm and driving slowly and carefully with the other hand, Geise made her way to the hospital.

Geise told azcentral.com that she and baby Sebastian are doing fine and are at home with family.

Man cited after fight with older man over handicap parking space

An altercation over a handicap parking space in front of a Boston Market was caught on camera Wednesday afternoon.

The 11-second video, which was shared across Facebook and with Boston 25 News, shows a younger man push an older man, knocking him to the ground.

The altercation started because the younger man, who isn’t being identified because he isn’t facing criminal charges, was sitting in his truck in a handicap parking spot.

When the older man approached him with his handicap placard in hand and asked for the space, things turned physical.

“All he said was ‘my car is running and I’m allowed to sit here,’” Marcie, the woman who recorded the video, told Boston 25 News. “The word entitled is exactly what came to my mind at the beginning.”

In the video, Marcie can be heard telling the men she recorded what happened and was going to call 911, but that apparently didn’t stop it from continuing.

“After the older gentleman was on the ground, he got back up and they started to fight again, actually worse. I wish I got that (on) film,” she said.

The Swampscott Police Department tell Boston 25 News officers responded to the altercation. Officers say the man who was knocked to the ground declined to press charges, but the younger man was issued a citation for illegally parking in a handicap spot.

An advertisement for a "slightly used coffin" raised eyebrows and the ire of some people.

In an effort to encourage sober drivers over the Thanksgiving holiday, the Arizona Department of Transportation decided to get silly. Or is that dilly?

Television viewers are likely familiar with Budweiser's latest ad campaign, featuring a court in a vaguely medieval setting. Those in attendance who bring Bud Light receive an enthusiastic reception, with everyone saying, "Dilly, dilly!" Those who do not bring Bud Light are sent to the "pit of misery."

An Arizona DOT spokesman told azcentral.com that the agency often uses pop culture references in its messaging to connect with drivers.

Source: Mugabe granted immunity; safety in Zimbabwe ensured

Former President Robert Mugabe was granted immunity from prosecution and was assured that his safety in Zimbabwe would be protected, Reuters reported. The announcement was part of a deal that led to the 93-year-old’s resignation, sources told Reuters.

Mugabe, who had led Zimbabwe since its independence from Great Britain in 1980, resigned Tuesday after the army seized power and the ruling party turned against him. Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice president sacked by Mugabe earlier this month, is set to be sworn in as president on Friday.

A government source said Mugabe told negotiators he wanted to die in Zimbabwe and had no plans to live in exile, Reuters reported.

“It was very emotional for him and he was forceful about it,” said the source, who is not authorized to speak on the details of the negotiated settlement.

“For him it was very important that he be guaranteed security to stay in the country … although that will not stop him from traveling abroad when he wants to or has to,” the source told Reuters.
