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…

book

The Juice does not have to read this book in order to speculate that it may be the worst book ever written. He thinks that you will agree. As reported by kxnews.com (Bismarck, North Dakota):

A Mandan High School Social Studies teacher is behind bars after writing a sexually explicit book about two of his students.

So, so creepy and frightening.

Police say Scott Allan gave the book to the 17 and 18-year-old female students as a graduation gift.

This may be the one superlative too many, but worst graduation gift ever?

They say the characters in the book have the same first names and similar last names as the two students, and in it they engage in sexual acts.

Allan was placed on administrative leave on May 22nd and resigned later that day.

He turned himself in to police yesterday for Promoting Obscenity to Minors, a class C felony and Disorderly Conduct, a class B misdemeanor.

driving road

How about this explanation given by a man arrested for exposing himself while driving? As reported by The Kitsap Sun (Washington):

A 24-year-old Bremerton man arrested Wednesday for indecent exposure told a State Patrol trooper he was driving his car while not wearing pants because he recently received a body wax.

The “Manzilian,” or Brazilian for men, resulted in his jeans irritating his skin, he told the trooper, so he had been driving in his underwear.

A witness told investigators she had seen the man exposing himself and sticking out his tongue while driving on Highway 16 near the Tremont Street overpass, and had been doing so “since Gig Harbor,” according to court documents.

The man was booked into Kitsap County Jail and held on $5,000 bail.

Are you buying it? Here’s the source.

kayak

If you were to consider various means of escaping the country, there’s no way you would even include a kayak on your list. Well, it worked for this gent. As reported by The Hunterdon County [New Jersey] Democrat:

Steven Pieczynski, 38, who also once lived in Lambertville, was convicted by a jury in a trial conducted by Superior Court Judge Stephen B. Rubin in March. Assistant Prosecutor Anthony Anastasio presented the case.

But he wasn’t jailed pending sentencing. And there was a kayak, and …

Pieczynski entered Canada illegally on Sept. 29, 2012, “using a kayak, launched from Lewiston, N.Y., on the Lower Niagara River,” the prosecutor said. After crossing the river, he made his way to the Toronto area.

You already know it didn’t last.

Detectives eventually tracked down Pieczynski, and on Oct. 23, 2012, members of the Toronto Police Service Fugitive Squad, the Integrated Border Enforcement Team (IBET), the Ontario Provincial Police, and the Canada Border Services Agency arrested him at the home of a woman he met on the Internet, Kearns said. He was extradited back to the United States.

Bam! And he was just sentenced to 4 years for skipping out. But that’s not all.

Pieczynski still faces sentencing on the original burglary and theft conviction.

school lockers

Most of us would like to be young again. Okay, so most of the old folks like The Juice would like to be young again. And many of us say that we act young and feel young, and that’s all that matters. Not to this Texas lady. She went back to relive it all. As reported by newschannel10.com:

Police say Charity Anne Johnson was arrested after giving officers a fake name and birthday going by “Charity Stevens.” This is also the same alias Johnson used to enroll at the high school.

A spokesperson for the school said Johnson was brought in to enroll with a person who she claimed was her guardian and gave a date of birth indicating she was only 15. Staff at the school discovered her identification was fake and not only that, but that she had been a student there since October 2013.

People at the school say she claimed to be abused by her biological father.  School officials say she came in as a home-schooled student without any prior transcripts. Her bond has been set at 500 dollars.

happy birthday

On your birthday, you get a little leeway. A little.  As reported by wlsam.com:

Will County Sheriff’s deputies were called to Precise Stone in the 14000 block of West Illinois Highway on April 30 when the owner reported a former employee trying to steal property.

Uh-oh.

En route to the scene, officers were told that the suspect was driving on Illinois Highway in the stolen forklift, according to a police report. Officers were quickly able to spot the vehicle, pull it over and arrest the driver.

Someone is in a mess of trouble.

Javier Villasenor-Arreola of East Chicago, Ind., who had turned 43 the day he was arrested, was charged with felony counts of burglary, theft and aggravated DUI; and a misdemeanor count of damage to property. He was also cited for operating a vehicle with expired registration and operating an uninsured motor vehicle, according to police.

The business owner told police Villasenor-Arreola had been terminated about two weeks earlier, and when he was leaving about 3:20 p.m. he saw Villasenor standing in front of the business, apparently intoxicated, the report said.

He drove around the block and when he returned, the front door window of the shop had been shattered, the garage door was open and Villasenor-Arreola was driving the forklift out of the garage onto the street, the report said.

Yikes.

He is being held in the Will County Jail on a $50,000 bond.

bible

Yes, you can get busted for walking down the street with a Bible. And yes, of course there is more to the story. As reported by The Bradenton Herald:

The Bradenton Police Department detained a naked man after he was spotted walking in the 1100 block of Martin Luther King Avenue West at 12:09 a.m. Sunday, according to a report.

Details, details. So the guy was nude. People are too uptight.

Police said the man was carrying a Bible. When an officer tried to make contact with the subject he ran east where he was caught four blocks later after a brief struggle, police said.

The man was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital for a medical evaluation. A charge of exposure of sexual organs has been filed with the State Attorney’s Office.
