News from Newser:

Premier McKeeva Bush was detained Tuesday morning at his home in the West Bay section of Grand Cayman island by officers from the financial unit of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, police spokeswoman Janet Dougall said.

By evening, the 57-year-old Bush had been released on overnight bail after a series of interviews. Police said he would be questioned further Wednesday and a decision on any further bail would be made then.

Bush was detained “in connection with a number of ongoing police investigations,” Dougall said in a statement. She said the probes involve suspected theft related to misuse of a government credit card and breach of trust, abuse of office and conflict of interest for the alleged importation of unspecified explosive substances without valid permits.

Authorities in the British Caribbean territory did not provide any details about the allegations involved in the arrest.

“It would be inappropriate for the RCIPS to make any further comment in relation to these matters at this time,” a police statement said. “Further updates will be made available in due course.”

Authorities said another man was arrested Tuesday in connection with the Bush case involving the alleged importation of explosive materials. Police did not reveal his identity.

Drivers use credit cards and alcohol to clear icy screens
News from Telegraph.co.uk:

With winter well and truly into its stride, motorists are having to get to grips once more with frozen windscreens – but not everybody uses a traditional ice scraper.

Credit cards, spatulas, boiling water and even alcohol are some of the household items used by motorists to clear an icy windscreen, while 29 per cent resort to using their hands as makeshift ice scrapers.
