And, since we have just gone through Thanksgiving's season of gratitude, the Christmas season is upon us and the Hannibal Pirates are still playing football, there's plenty of good news out there these days.

But, since we are in the news business, there are times when we just can't ignore the fact that sometimes, crime rears its ugly head.

On the Shelby County E911 Facebook page, we learned of an incident Wednesday morning about the apprehension of a desperate fugitive on the streets of Shelbyville.

The Shelby County Sheriff's account of the crime went like this:

We talked to Sheriff Arron Fredrickson about the situation. He told us that said mule had just arrived at his new home Tuesday. This morning, said mule decided to roam the area. So, he jumped the fence and the rest is crime fighting history.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
