Son's sign welcoming mom home at airport goes viral
(FOX NEWS) - One Oklahoma woman returning from a business trip got quite a surprise from her young son who went to meet her at the airport.
Barbara Nielsen was on her way back home after a week-long trip for the manufacturing company she works for in Fort Smith, Arkansas. When she arrived, her husband, Brandon Nielsen, and her son, Daimen, went to pick her up.
However, the father-son duo had something a bit more embarrassing up their sleeves -- a homemade sign that read, "Welcome home from prison mom."

Florida man arrested after calling sheriff to get his meth tested
PALATKA — A Florida man called the sheriff’s office Tuesday after growing suspicious that the meth he had smoked was the wrong drug
The concerned caller, 49-year-old Hawthorne resident Douglas Peter Kelly, experienced a "violent reaction" to narcotics he had purchased a week earlier. He wanted members from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office to test the substance so that he could press charges against the dealer for selling him the incorrect drug.
Drug unit detectives invited Kelly to the office so they could conduct a quality test, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Kelly drove to the office to show them a clear substance wrapped in aluminum foil. When it tested positive as methamphetamine, Kelly was arrested.
He is being held at the Putnam County jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
The Sheriff’s Office took to Facebookto extend the same drug-testing assistance to other citizens.
"PUBLIC NOTICE: If you believe you were sold bad drugs, we are offering a free service to test them for you," the post reads. "Remember, our detectives are always ready to assist anyone who believes they were misled in their illegal drug purchase."
Deputy: Florida man chugged can of beer during DUI stop Updated: Jun 15 2018 02:56PM EDT
BIG COPPITT KEY, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 48-year-old Florida man raised a can of beer and chugged it after a sheriff's deputy stopped him on suspicion of drunk driving.
Daryl Royal Riedel told Monroe County sheriff's investigators he was scared when he fled in his pickup truck as Deputy Anthony Lopez stepped out of his patrol car Thursday. Riedel drove for a short distance before stopping along U.S. 1.
The report says Riedel got out of his truck with a beer can in his hand -- and chugged it.
Riedel now faces numerous charges, including felony DUI, fleeing from a deputy, driving with a suspended license and failure to submit a breath test.
He's in jail without bond. Records don't list a lawyer.
Riedel has three prior DUI convictions between 2003 and 2010 and a fourth is pending from 2017.
