Patch Roundup: Crazy Car Chase, Two Armed Robbery Charges
Also this week: a husband charged with contributing to his wife's death through neglect, accusations of inter-town cyberbullying, and two dogs getting married.
Our roundup leads with a fair amount of crime this week, including two armed robberies. But if you're looking for something lighter, how about two Siberian husky rescue dogs getting married ("married," I suppose) in a fundraiser for other animal rescue organizations?
