chuck e cheese

Chuck E. Cheese provides all kinds of services – food, entertainment, birthday parties. What they don’t do, though, is babysit. Per The Post and Courier (Charleston, South Carolina):

A woman on Friday dropped four children off at a West Ashley Chuck E. Cheese while she went shopping for an hour and a half, Charleston police alleged in a report.

Meriana Sanusi Martin, 47, of Wildwood Lane in Beaufort, is charged with four counts of cruelty to children in connection with the incident, the report said.

If you’re wondering how someone does that, here’s how.

An employee told investigators that a woman arrived with four children around 2 p.m., but she walked out of the restaurant alone shortly afterward. The children were ages 9, 6, 4 and 4, police said.

An employee asked the woman if she was leaving. She replied saying she would be right back, according to the report.

Uh-huh.  “Right back.”

She didn’t return, however, until an officer called her from the restaurant, police said.

The oldest child told investigators the woman left them at the restaurant while she went shopping at Costco, the report said. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while at the restaurant, according to the business’ policy.

What’s she looking at?

Martin faces up to 30 days in jail or fines up to $200 on each cruelty charge.

school bus

This kid is Trouble. That capital “T” is intentional. Why? Check out what this youngster has been up to, as reported by wmbb.com (Florida):

Police say that a 12-year-old charged in June with stealing a school bus and taking it on a joyride has done it again.

Yes, again!

According to the Parker Police Department and Bay District Schools, 12-year-old Michael Propst is charged with taking a bus from a compound at Parker Elementary School and driving it to Franklin County Tuesday evening.

In June, Propst was charged with taking a bus and driving it from the same location to the Wal-Mart on Front Beach Road, a distance of 15 miles.

15 miles! Yikes. What about this time?

This time, the youth drove the bus to Franklin County, a distance of more than 55 miles.

Shazam! Here’s the source.

doctor medical

Anyone who expects doctors to be perfect is just being unreasonable. Like folks in all other lines of work, doctors make mistakes. But this is a mistake that should never happen, as The Juice is certain you will agree. As reported by The Philippine Star:

A 3-year-old girl [in Zamboanga City, Philippines], who was clinically pronounced dead woke on Sunday during her funeral service in a church in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, police said.

How could this happen?

[Police Senior Inspector] Teelan said while they were not the proper authority to confirm the medical case, but based on the accounts of the child’s parents, the 3-year old girl experienced severe fever for days and was brought to the clinic in the town for medical attention last Friday.

“During that time, the attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead last Saturday morning about 9 a.m.,” Teelan said.

Wrong.

A video footage uploaded to an online social network went viral online, showing the parents of the girl removing her from her wooden coffin while mourners appeared to be in the state of commotion.

Not surprisingly …

… the family which is now seeking medical consultation to a well-equipped hospital in the province.

magic woman

This is your story, and you’re sticking with it! Well, it’s not a a very good one. As reported by The Arab Times:

A Kuwaiti citizen has filed a complaint with the Fahaheel Police Station accusing a female black magician of taking all his money, reports Al-Rai daily. The complainant said he withdrew KD 1,000 from a bank branch when an unidentified veiled woman approached him and spoke some strange words. He then handed to her the KD 1,000 which he had withdrawn from the bank and another KD 250 which he had on his person. He added, when he came to his senses, the woman had disappeared.

Uh-huh.

cat watchcat watch

Of course watchdogs guard and watch over your property. But have you ever heard of a watchcat? Well, you have now. As reported by The Review (East Liverpool, Ohio):

The husband of Rosemary Stover, Tomahawk Drive, Negley, reported his cat was acting strangely upon entering the house so he used a spotlight to check the garden and driveway, where he saw a young man standing by his van, wearing all black. The man ran down the driveway and east on Tomahawk Drive. Her husband chased the man but did not locate him. Entry was not made to the van. Deputies also did not locate him.

Give that cat some treats. Oh, and how about changing the litter too?

car crash accident

Better they should both be involved in one accident, versus each of them slamming into an innocent driver. As reported by wnyt.com:

Police say two people were drunk when they crashed into each other early Sunday morning.

Yikes.

Officers say Laura Stefanik, 25, was making a three point turn in her SUV when she was hit by Ramel Alexander, 31, who was riding his motorcycle.

Alexander flew over Stefaink’s car and landed in the street.

Both were treated and released at Albany Medical Center.

They now face DWI and other related charges.

What are the odds? Here’s the source.

pot weed marijuana

None of this would have happened if the gent had only been wearing his seat belt! Anyway, check out where the gent was hiding the weed, as reported by baynews9.com:

It was about 3:35 p.m. on Friday when a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office deputy positioned along State Road 415, in Osteen, spotted a car go by and noticed the passenger — a rather large man — wasn’t wearing his seat belt.

Brilliant!

When he stopped the vehicle, the deputy immediately noticed that both the driver and passenger were nervous. And he also noticed that the passenger still wasn’t wearing his seat belt. At about 450 pounds, the passenger — Christopher Mitchell, 42 — said he was simply too large to wear the belt.

Due to growing suspicions, a Sheriff’s Office drug-detecting K-9 was brought to the scene. The dog quickly alerted deputies to the presence of drugs. The resulting investigation turned up cocaine, 23 grams of marijuana hidden under Mitchell’s stomach fat, a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun and more than $7,000 in cash stuffed into a tube sock. The deputies also noticed something else: The vehicle’s trunk and interior were sprinkled with carper freshener and scented dryer sheets, a common tactic used to conceal the odor of drugs when they’re being transported.

Under his stomach fat! Admit it. You did not see that one coming. Here’s the source, which has their mugs shots.

court gavel

This is certainly not your average breach of contract case! As reported by The New Zealand Herald:

The man, who’s known as Mr N, hired a private investigator to track the sex worker down after he felt he hadn’t had his money’s worth, when his session with the woman ended prematurely.

A private investigator? And then he sued her!

Today’s Sunday Star Times reports Mr N claimed compensation and damages, because the woman breached a contractual agreement.

The result?

The High Court has rejected his claim, and he’s ended up with both legal bills.

Justice Woodhouse described the man’s case as a “sinister use of the courts processes.”

bank building

If all bank robberies went down like this, the world would be a better place. Why would The Juice say this? Well, as reported by The New Hampshire Union Leader:

The incident happened at 11:33 a.m. Tuesday at TD Bank, 300 Franklin St., in downtown Manchester.

The teller told police the man came into the bank and demanded cash from her, but left before taking any. He did not threaten the teller and he did not have a gun or any other weapon, police said.

No weapon! No threat! No injuries and no loss.

The man is described as having light-colored skin and wearing a white Red Sox T-shirt and gray baseball hat. He fled the bank on foot.

Police released a photo of the man taken from the bank’s video surveillance system.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You want your kids to express themselves by drawing. Just not on your passport! As reported by metro.co.uk:

The [4-year-old] child got busy during a recent family trip to South Korea, where he took to the back page of his dad’s Chinese passport with a black pen and drew some really nice pictures of people, animals, and – obviously – added a bit more hair to his dad’s face. Classic.

The only problem is that now his dad is stuck in South Korea because of his unrecognisable documentation, and authorities have warned it is likely he won’t be able to travel home with his son, and the rest of his party.

The picture was originally posted on social networking site Weibo by the father, known only as Chen, alongside a plea for help.

Sounds like he might be spending the rest of his holiday on the phone to the Chinese embassy. Let’s just hope he invests in a nice colour by numbers for his son next time…
