ice cream truck

Is it just me, or does it seem like there are a lot of strange ice cream truck driver stories? Here’s another one, as reported by wivb.com:

Last Friday night may have seemed like the prime time for dessert, but those who frequented an ice cream truck in Clarence [New York] met a rude surprise.

Officials say the driver of the truck acted belligerently by yelling at kids, but that wasn’t all parents had to complain about. Police say the driver drove while wearing nothing but his underwear.

Erie County Sheriff’s Deputies who responded to the complaint Friday arrested 24-year-old East Amherst native Ryan Duff. They say following investigation, they realized he was driving high on drugs through the Emily Court neighborhood.

While in police custody, officers say he refused to cooperate with testing, and a drug recognition expert made the final determination that he was under the influence. .

Police charged Duff with DWI-drugs and others charges, then released him to a sober driver.

He’s scheduled to return to Clarence Town Court on Aug. 25.

Yikes. You’ll find the source here.

Money in the form of many large bills

You never know when you might need some cash. Some folks deal only in cash. (The Juice can think of a few …)  But this much?  As reported in The Brooklyn Paper’s Police Blotter (68th Precinct – Bay Ridge/Dyker Heights):

A crook hit the jackpot when he lifted $18,600 from an Eighth Avenue apartment between May 26 and June 3.

The resident was out of town for the span, and when he returned to his house between 67th and 68th streets in Dyker Heights, he found that someone had broken into his apartment and taken the cash and an iPhone 6 from his bedroom dresser, police said.

Who keeps $18,600 cash in a bedroom dresser drawer, other than this gent? Anyone else think the perp knows the victim? The Juice isn’t buying the random “jackpot” theory.

milk bottles containers bottle

This is just not a smart way to cool yourself off for a lot of reasons – all of them obvious. As reported by wkyt.com:

It was 90 degrees Thursday and a man apparently went into a South Williamson Wal-Mart to cool off.

The Pike County Sheriff’s Department on Friday obtained an arrest warrant for a man who entered Wal-Mart naked, shouted “I’m on fire” and then poured a gallon of milk on himself, according to a news release.

The man left the store, hopped into a car with someone else and left. Sheriff’s deputies say the incident was caught on camera by a third-party and uploaded to social media.

After investigating, deputies obtained warrants for Timothy Smith of Phelps and David Daniels of Belfry. A release does not say which man is accused of going into the store to cool off.

The two were arrested Saturday afternoon without incident. Both were lodged in the Pike County Detention Center where they are being held without bond.

The investigation is ongoing, and there could be other arrests, the release said.

A dare? Drunk? Stoned? Bored? Chances are we’ll find out soon enough. Here’s the source.

earrings

File this under “strange shoplifters.” Why would you steal a fraction of the amount of the merchandise you paid for? You’ll find this woman’s explanation interesting. From the Moultrie News Police Blotter:

A woman went into a local department store and purchased over $700’s worth of items, but not the two pairs of earrings she allegedly unpackaged and shoved in her pocket – valued at $98.

And because of that, she was taken to jail for shoplifting and put on trespass notice.

According to the loss prevention officer, he witnessed her actions and stopped her at the exit.

When asked about the earrings, she said she forgot about them, according to the report.

And she kept to that story even when being questioned by the police officer.

She could not, however, explain why she had unwrapped them and discarded the packaging. She just said she forgot.

You forgot! That’s the best you’ve got? Might as well have gone with “How did THAT get there?” Someone must have …

dancer dancing man

You’re thinking this guy must have been drunk or stoned. Apparently not! As reported at myfoxal.com:

Authorities said a man was arrested for dancing on top of a law enforcement SUV because the man said he was dancing to keep vampires away.

Home surveillance video captured the man pulling up in a car behind a Lee County sheriff’s vehicle, getting out, and climbing on top of it to dance.

As the man was dancing, the songs Rich Girl, by Hall & Oates, and Goodbye Stranger, by Supertramp, played on his car’s radio.

The video later captured the man taking an American flag from a neighbor’s yard and deputies taking the man into custody.

While it’s not clear if the man’s plan to ward off vampires worked, he did damage the vehicle’s roof and windshield wipers.

Deputies said the man was not drunk or on drugs, and had not been diagnosed with any mental health issues at the time.

He was arrested for disturbing the peace and criminal mischief.  The video in its entirety was posted on YouTube.

hamster

The “lesson” this teacher was trying to teach will – with absolute certainty – never be forgotten by seven South Korean elementary school students. As reported by The Korea Times:

Police Monday investigated an instructor at a rural South Korean boarding facility who bit a hamster to death and swallowed it in front of children.

Yikes! Why?

The instructor, surnamed Yu, 44, said he did so because he was “afraid of rats.”

So that may explain why you chose a hamster instead of a rat. So, again, why?

After finding out that some children were teasing hamsters, Yu bit one to death and swallowed it to teach them “how dear life is,” according to police.

Seven children saw him eat the animal.

Yu also used abusive language in front of the children.

Hmm. Interesting method. Think the parents were a little upset? You betcha.

He left the facility when other teachers protested. Parents have filed a complaint with police, alleging child abuse.

Yu told Yonhap News Agency by phone that he had feared rats after being bitten while at elementary school.

“I couldn’t control the situation and couldn’t stand it,” he was quoted as saying.

He then reiterated that he wanted to teach the children how precious life was.

“While watching the hamsters die from teasing, I thought I should teach the children it was wrong to make light of life,” he said.

He apologized to the children, parents and other instructors, saying he would not have killed the hamster if he had known it would be considered a form of child abuse.

Yu appeared at Jeongeup Police Station and admitted his act. Police booked him without physical detention for child abuse.

Crazy. Here’s the source.

neighbors neighborhood

Aspen, Colorado is not a place you would normally find this kind of bizarre conduct.  No place, though, is immune from Juiecworthy behavior. As reported by The Aspen Daily News:

An Aspen Village man faces multiple felonies after he allegedly went into his neighbor’s home twice, poured out liquor bottles, threw away food and moved the man’s truck into his own driveway.

William Hallisey, 58, is charged with felony counts of burglary, robbery, criminal trespass, aggravated motor vehicle theft and two misdemeanors.

Say what? It’s even weirder than it seems, with Mr. Hallisey referring to himself as “the prophet.” You can read a fair amount more here.

library

Maybe she just had the wrong public building? Trust The Juice – you won’t guess what this woman did at the library. As reported by The Hunterdon County Democrat, via nj.com:

On Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 at 1617 hours, Patrol Officer Mazellan responded to the Readington Library for a woman who wanted to turn herself in for her outstanding warrants.

Mazellan spoke with Jamie Blevins, 34, of Somerset and was advised that she had two warrants. The warrants were out of Raritan Township for $750 and Trenton for $5,000, police said.

Blevins was arrested and held in the Hunterdon County Jail.

That’s a head-scratcher.

This is definitely not your average burglary! As reported at nbcphiladelphia.com

A burglar who authorities said masturbated on a woman’s deck and then stole her dog was shot when he broke into a second Bucks County apartment, according to investigators.

Right? Nothing average about that! You can read more, and watch a video about the story, here.

You’ll have to click on the link below to see the photograph of the haul. Only then can you understand the magnitude of what this fetishist did. As reported by The South China Morning Post:

Some thieves have a penchant for the strangest things.

Residents in Yulin city, Guangxi province, were treated to a colourful array of more than 2,000 sets of women’s lingerie laid out neatly on the ground at a public space in their neighbourhood on Saturday.

The used underwear, which belonged to women in the neighbourhood, had been stolen by a male resident over the course of the year, news website Gxnew.com.cn reported.

The report said the man hid the stolen lingerie above the false ceiling of several stairwells within the residential building where he lived.
