Joseph Hayes, 48, was arrested in South Memphis, Tenn., after allegedly threatening (with a gun in his waistband) the hostess of a birthday party to which his kids had been invited but which ran out of cake and ice cream.

Zachary Woody, 21, of Calhoun, Ga., was charged with aggravated assault after stabbing a friend.
