good neighbors

It’s safe to say these folks won’t be going to each other’s house for dinner any time soon. As reported by The Daytona Beach News-Journal:

A brawl between two families in Oak Hill on Sunday night included punching, scratching and a pit bull named Ellie May and her master both biting their neighbor at the same time, a Volusia County sheriff’s report shows.

Yikes! You can read a ton more, and see a mug shot, here.

Different strokes, right? But you have just have to wonder how someone could think that  this (1) is okay morally (2) looks cool, and (3) will not send you straight to hell. As reported at vegfriends.com:

Yummypets revolts against this new fashion jewelry in China: live animals in a plastic sealed bag containing a liquid with nutrient and oxygen that allows them to live up to 2 months.

Yummypets has signed the petition and encourage you to do the same so that the UN requires the Chinese government to ban the manufacture and sale of amulets and jewelry containing live animals.

You’ll find the petition here.

Next time you’re on the bus, take a look around. Of the folks who are awake, you’re going to see a lot of bored faces. But not on this bus ride in Orlando, Florida! Why is that? Well, per The Orlando Sentinel:

A Longwood woman was arrested Wednesday evening after stripping naked on a Lynx bus and getting off at the Central Station on Garland Avenue in Orlando police say.

Bam!

Two officers who were at the station at about 5 p.m. when 33-year-old Rosetta Jackson exited the bus asked why she was naked but she offered no explanation.

“Jackson immediately brought her hands up in front of her face and began saying take me to jail,” her arrest report said.

Craigslist is a great resource. However, as has been demonstrated all too often, it’s susceptible to abuse by all kinds of strange and bad folks. As reported by The Union Leader:

A Hooksett man with a history of faking a brain injury to get home care workers to change his diaper has been indicted for his latest alleged ruse in Hampton.

Eric Carrier, 24, is facing a single count of attempted indecent exposure and lewdness for his encounter with a home care worker in Hampton on Sept 12. A Rockingham County grand jury handed up the charge while deliberating earlier this month in superior court, according to an indictment made public this week.

Carrier allegedly responded to an advertisement the woman posted on the website craigslist.org, claiming he was a 22-year-old disabled man. When the two met in Hampton, Carrier claimed he needed help changing his soiled diaper in an attempt to expose himself to the woman, police said.

As for the other charges …

Carrier was charged last year by Hooksett police with indecent exposure for soliciting five other women by posing as a disabled person on Craigslist, according to police. He was convicted of indecent exposure on July 30, police said.

Court documents suggest that Carrier may already be negotiating a plea deal following his latest arrest. A conviction in his latest case could land him in state prison for up to 3½ to seven years. It’s unclear whether he may face additional punishment for a subsequent conviction.

Hampton police say Carrier claimed he could not control his bowel movements due to a brain injury. A 30-year-old Nashua woman who met Carrier on Sept. 12 grew suspicious of his behavior and later notified police, according to a court complaint.

Hooksett police said they received reports from several other women during their investigation last year, but could not go forward with those cases because they were beyond the statute of limitations. Carrier will be arraigned on his latest charge in Rockingham County Superior Court on Jan. 31.

Looks like he’ll be out of commission for a while. Here’s the source, including a photo.

The Juice wasn’t there, but that’s never stopped him from passing judgment before. This seems like a harmless prank. What do you think? As reported by The Sun News (at Cleveland.com):

A Northfield boy, 17, was arrested Dec. 17 and charged with disorderly conduct after he alarmed shoppers at Nordstrom in Beachwood Place.

The boy’s method of alarming involved putting on a Batman mask and red sunglasses on his face and a hood covering his head and then running full speed through the shopping area. Police were called and took the boy from the store.

The Juice doesn’t see the harm, though he does see the source, which is here.

The weapon of choice? An umbrella. The location of the attempted robbery – a Burger King drive-thru! As reported by The Journal Gazette (Fort Wayne, Indiana):

According to Allen Superior Court documents, [Amanda M.] Ringler [27] pointed an umbrella at an employee through the drive-thru window and demanded money. The employee hit the restaurant’s panic alarm, and Ringler drove off empty-handed, though witnesses notified police of her car’s description.

All that careful planning down the drain!

… Ringler, of Payne, was charged in March with attempted robbery. Last month, Ringler pleaded guilty to attempted theft.

The time?

Allen Superior Judge John F. Surbeck sentenced her to three years in prison, but ordered Ringler to serve 183 days, while he suspended the remaining two years and 182 days. Surbeck also ordered Ringler to serve one year of probation.

Shazam!

As The Juice always says, if you don’t like what you’re looking at, look away! Per The Dutch Harbor Telegraph (Dutch Harbor, Alaska):

1312 – Assistance Rendered – Previously convicted assailant reported that since he returned to town, his victim has been giving him the stink-eye. An officer advised the assailant to simply avoid looking at the victim.

No, not the stink-eye! Run!

He’s The King! Stop hassling him! As reported by The Rome News-Tribune (Rome, Georgia):

Rome Police were called to the [McDonald’s] restaurant at 2215 Shorter Ave. at approximately 1 p.m. by a manager in reference to a suspicious person.

When they arrived, the manager said that a man dressed as the mascot for Burger King entered the restaurant with bags of hamburgers and began handing them out to several customers.

But The King wasn’t quite done.

He danced while inside the restaurant and stopped to take pictures with children. The report states that one child took a picture with him and ran away as he appeared to be scared.

When the manager approached the man he said he was collecting for children’s charities. She noted that he had not collected any money during his time inside the restaurant.

Peasant! Don’t bother The King with petty details.

The subject then got into a white Acura. The manager saw him take off his mask and he appeared to be a middle age white male with dark hair.

Here’s the source.

When you think of road rage, you think about aggressive driving, or maybe even someone pulling a weapon, right? But this? You would not think of this. Ever. Per BeeNews.com (New York):

Police responded to a road rage incident on Union Road. Reportedly, two motorists were spitting on each other after following each other around town.

The Juice can think of worse ways to settle disputes.

So maybe it’s not 100% certain that he was drinking with the monkeys, but he let them out of their cages, he was drunk, and … as reported by The August Chronicle (Georgia):

According to a GHSU Police Bureau incident report, a co-worker discovered Coley Mitchell, 32, partially unclothed in the Laboratory Animal Services technician locker room at the Sanders Research and Education Building about 10:30 p.m. Monday.

Yikes!

Campus police said Mitchell, a Lab Animal Services technician, was highly intoxicated and sitting in a chair with his pants half-down.

Partially clothed, highly intoxicated – what about the monkeys?

The spokeswoman said two monkeys were found outside their cages in the lab but were confined to the room. There is no indication the monkeys had been harmed.

Whew.

Police said Mitchell became combative and uncooperative with officers while being escorted from the locker room.

He was booked into the Richmond County jail Monday on charges of public intoxication.

A spokeswoman said Mitchell was still employed by Georgia Health Sciences University on Friday.

That’ll probably change. Here’s the source, including a mug shot.
