A Los Angeles sign company that misspelled Olympic Boulevard with an “I” in place of the “Y,” and the installers who also failed to catch the typo.
It wasn’t until drivers started Tweeting photos of the sign that anyone noticed.
The sign was one of many improvements on the freeway as part of a pavement rehabilitation project.

Bari Joy Williams, 44, a manager of a Birmingham, Alabama substance abuse treatment center, who was arrested for driving down the road smoking crack with a child in the car.
Williams, the substance abuse manager for Olivia’s House, was pulled over by police.
When the officer knocked on the window, he noticed the woman inside try to hide the pipe.
Once she rolled down the window, the officer said the “smell of burnt crack cocaine was overwhelming.”
Williams was charged with chemical endangerment of a child, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
The 5-year-old girl in the car with her was taken into the custody of the Department of Human Resources.


Jose Navarro, Jr., an Illinois man who phoned in a phony shooting to 911 in hopes of getting out of a traffic ticket.
During the traffic stop, Navarro called 911 and falsely reported hearing eight gunshots.
He also claimed that a man had been shot and was lying on the ground a few blocks away from where the police had stopped him.
It almost worked. Several officers did drive to the scene with their emergency lights on, only to discover it was bogus.
So Navarro can now add a felony 911 call to the list of charges on the traffic ticket.


Charles “Skeeter” Cowart Jr., 31, a Florida man who as arrested after “doing donuts” in freshly poured concrete while screaming at construction workers rebuilding a bridge.
“Skeeter” gouged the newly poured cement then jumped off his four-wheeler and cursed at workers before tossing a bucket of cow feed.
He then jumped off the bridge into the woods, running and then swimming through the canal to the other side.
His father eventually arrived and assisted deputies in taking “Skeeter” under custody.
Odd thing, there was no mention of alcohol.
