Sure, neighbors have their disagreements. But check this out, as reported by nj.com:

An elderly man was arrested Monday night after a neighbor’s fart allegedly drove him to threaten him with a gun, police said.

Daniel Collins, 72, had been involved in an ongoing dispute with the unidentified neighbor for some time, Det. Lt. Andrew McGurr told NJ.com.

The neighbor told officers that Collins pointed a revolver at him in the vestibule of their apartment building at 694 Cedar Lane at around 9:25 p.m.

Collins said he confronted the man after hearing him pass gas in front of his apartment door, but denied threatening him with a gun. He consented to a search, and officers recovered a .32 caliber revolver from his vehicle.

Wait, you could hear it in your apartment? Yikes.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a firearm and making terroristic threats.

Here’s the source, including a mug shot of Mr. Collins.

Sure, lots of folks pick up a few keepsakes when they’re on vacation. Maybe something to remind them of the fun they had on the trip. Well check out what this man picked up in Tibet, as reported by The Highline Times (Washington State):

A traveler was stopped at the Sea-Tac Airport by a dog that smelled something funny. Customs and Border Protection agriculture specialists contacted the man and he told them he had four yak skulls in his duffel bag. The traveler told the specialists he found two of the skulls while hiking in Tibet. He also bought two yak skulls at a village store to keep as souvenirs. Two of the skulls had dried flesh on them, which is what alerted a federal Beagle named Woody. An Agriculture program manager said the skulls were destroyed under high-pressure steam to prevent the introduction of animal diseases.

Nothing like a fleshy yak skull to start that stroll down memory lane.

Of all the places he could have picked, check out where this gent chose to expose himself, as reported by phillyburbs.com:

A man exposed himself to a woman inside the Bucks County Association for the Blind.

Newtown Township police said the incident occurred about 2 p.m. Friday inside the bookstore at the offices at 400 Freedom Drive.

The woman told police the suspect is a skinny, black male, between 35 and 45 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and was wearing a black track suit.

Crazy right? Or was it? Here’s the source.

How could The Juice possibly know that people in Wyoming were fishing with guns? Well, do you think they would have passed a law prohibiting it if nobody was doing it? Exactly! Here’s the law:

23-3-201. Fishing tackle; designation of waters for setline fishing; taking fish with firearm prohibited; snagging; penalties.

… (d) No person shall take, wound or destroy any fish of Wyoming with a firearm of any kind or nature.

Very sporting, right? And so much fun! Here’s the source.

bank%20robbery.jpg

Either this was the worst bank robbery ever, or there’s something we don’t yet know. As reported by The Belleville [Illinois] News-Democrat:

[Jeffery C. Bell, 56, and Rita L. Bell, 58] entered Scott Credit Union, 648 Carlyle Ave., at about 10 a.m. Thursday and demanded money from a teller, who gave them an unidentified amount of cash out of the drawer, according to police.

So far, just your run-of-the-mill bank robbery.

Then the Bells went into the manager’s office and asked her to call police.

Say what?

Police responded to the credit union and arrested the Bells. No weapon was ever displayed or implied during the robbery.

Belleville Police Capt. John Moody did not know the pair’s relationship or why they requested the police be called. Asked whether he ever encountered a similar case, Moody said, “No, it’s the first. (But) I’ve seen all kinds of things.”

And to make it a little stranger …

Moody said the motive for the robbery, which coincided with Jeffery Bell’s birthday, was under investigation.

Happy birthday!

… both … were charged Friday with robbery, police said. Their bail was set at $70,000 each.

magic%20spell.jpg

So the police will investigate you if your husband merely claims you are using black magic? Apparently so, at least if you live in Kuwait. As reported by the Arab Times:

A Kuwaiti man has filed a complaint with the Adan Police Station accusing his ex-wife of doing black magic. He claims the magic harmed him and his two daughters, reports Al-Rai daily.
 According to the man the woman planted some magic charms in his home to promote hatred between him and his daughters.
 He also said because of the magic he and his daughters are suffering from dermal disease. The suspect will be summoned for interrogation.

Hmm. Perhaps your daughters don’t like you because you’re a yutz? And maybe your daughters have “dermal disease” because they are teenagers? Just sayin’ …

It’s good when high school students do odd jobs to earn a little extra money, right? This story might make you change your mind, or at least ask what the “jobs” are. As reported by ktla.com:

Charles Hersel was arrested in 2009 during a sting operation at a Thousand Oaks mall.

Westlake High School students said Hersel paid them to yell profanities, spit and slap his face, according to officials.

Several students also said he offered them cash to urinate and defecate on him, Ventura County sheriff’s detectives said.

It was a “sting” so …

Hersel was charged with four counts of annoying and molesting a child.

Mr. Hersel fought the charges. His defense?

During the trial Hersel’s lawyer, Ron Bamieh, admitted the 41-year old paid more than a dozen teenagers to do those acts, but said the acts were not for sexual gratification.

What did the jury think?

Last week, jurors acquitted Hersel of all charges.

Had he lost?

He was facing a year in jail and would have been required to register as a sex offender.

Yeah, firing a bottle rocket out of your butt is never a good idea. And it’s even worse if it fails to launch! From the recently filed West Virginia case of Helmburg v. The Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and Travis Hughes:

Defendant Hughes was highly intoxicated … and decided in his drunken stupor that it would be a good idea to shoot a bottle rocket out of his anus on the ATO deck …

Plaintiff and his girlfriend were also present on the ATO deck.

Defendant Hughes placed a bottle rocket in his anus, ignited the fuse, but instead of launching, the bottle rock blew up in Defendant’s rectum, and this startled plaintiff and caused him to jump back, at which time he fell off of the ATO deck, and he became lodged between the deck and an air conditioner unit adjacent to the deck.

So, you might be wondering, what legal duties does the plaintiff allege were breached by ATO?

ATO owed plaintiff a duty … to supervise its guests and its own fraternity members, such as Defendant Hughes, and other under age persons, from consuming alcohol on its premises, which leads to stupid and dangerous activities, such as shooting bottle rockets out of one’s own anus.

What about Mr. Hughes?

Defendant Hughes also owed plaintiff and others on the ATO deck a duty of care not to drink under age, or to file bottle rockets out of his anus.

And here’s a count for both defendants:

Plaintiff asserts that the activity of underage drinking and firing bottle rockets out of one’s own anus constitutes an “ultra-hazardous” activity which exposes both of these defendants to strict liability.

A painful night, all around.

Let’s just hope that this was the culmination of a series of unsuccessful attempts to get the local government’s attention on some issue. Why? Because if this was the opening salvo, yikes! As reported by The Burlington Free Press:

Witnesses said they saw a middle-aged woman with short blond hair bring the bloody, dripping raccoon up the steps and angrily whack it against the white double doors on the east side of the building, smearing the doors with blood.

Yikes.

Police said the woman is white, with blond hair and was wearing a green winter hat, a tan coat and blue jeans on Nov. 17 when the incident occurred.

Here’s the source, including a picture of the woman provided by the Burlington Police.
