cell phone

Pocket dialing someone can be awkward at worst (or so you thought), at least, that is, if the person on the other end listens. (Admit it – you listen.) What happened to this gent was much worse than awkward. As reported by wkrn.com (Nashville, Tennessee):

Mt. Pleasant police say they arrested a man for drugs after he pocket-dialed 911 and dispatchers heard him talking about getting high and going to a drug dealer’s house.

Oops.

Dispatchers were able to trace the location of the call to Don Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant on North Main Street in Mt. Pleasant.

Police say that’s where the caller, Grant O’Connor, 25, and a female friend were having dinner.

The next time you are about to bash lawyers, don’t forget about this attorney, who is taking a stand to protect Muslims everywhere from … “Hajer”, a play that was put on at a festival in Kuwait. As reported by The Arab Times.

Attorney Ali Al-Ali filed a case against working crew of the “Hajer” theatrical drama which was presented during the Eid-ul- Fitr festival. Al-Ali accused the director, producer and one of the actors in the theatrical drama, which presented some of the scenes deemed offensive towards one of the huge section of Muslims in Kuwait and in the world in general. [emphasis added]

Wow. That lawyer has a lot of clients.

lawnmower lawn mower

If you have issues with your neighbor, take them up with your neighbor (and do it in a civilized way!)  Leave the lawn guy alone! Unfortunately it did not go down that way, as reported at mysuncoast.com (WWSB):

According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, deputies met with the victim, the owner of a lawn service business, at a residence in the 6400 block of Thorman Road around 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The victim told deputies he was hired to mow the lawn at the residence and was in the process of doing so, when 71-year-old Patrick Botelho approached him.

Yes, Mr. Botelho has anger issues, hates his neighbor, or both.

The victim said that Botelho asked him why he wasn’t trimming the weeds from the flower beds. The man said he was not hired to do so, that the home owners had contracted with him to only trim the lawn. Botelho told the victim that the weeds were getting into his lawn and told the victim he had better trim the flower beds.

Or else what? Well …

When the victim declined, Botelho allegedly tried to pull the victim off the mower and grabbed him around the neck, choking him so that he was gasping for breath. Another worker who was nearby trimming around the house saw what was happening and ran toward the two. At that point, Botelho released the victim and went back to his own house

Botelho was arrested and transported to the Charlotte County Jail. He was being held on a $2,500 bond.

Not cool. You’ll find the story, and a mug shot, by clicking here.

python

You wouldn’t be surprised to hear that the victim of a crime assisted in the apprehension of the perp, would you? But what if the victim was … a reptile? As reported by 7online.com (WABC):

The incident happened around 7 p.m. Monday on Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park.

The driver, identified as 22-year-old Sarah Espinosa, of Albany, apparently lost control of her Toyota Prius, crossed the median, struck a Nissan Maxima and careened into the fire station.

So what did the “victim” have to do with the crash?

… according to police, was that a stolen snake in her car had wrapped itself around her neck.

Yikes!

The vehicle plowed through the main door, striking two fire trucks inside.

Fire personnel who were present at the time of the accident rendered aid to the victim, at which time they discovered a small ball python snake wrapped around her neck.

They removed the snake and secured it at the scene.

Officers responded and determined Espinosa had stolen the snake from a nearby PETCO just prior to the accident.

Oh there’s more.

During the investigation, Espinosa was found to be in possession of marijuana.

She was treated and released from a local hospital, and no other injuries were reported. The snake was returned to the store.

Espinosa is charged with reckless endangerment, petit larceny, reckless driving, driving while intoxicated and unlawful possession of marijuana.

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.
