This fellow was indeed born free and naked, but he’s in the slammer now (and clothed). He’s fortunate not to have been held in contempt. Perhaps the judge liked his singing. As reported by The Irish Times:

A 49-year-old man from Youghal in Co Cork, who constantly sang ‘Born Free’ when he appeared in court in Derry on Monday, has been remanded in custody.

Nicholas Roper was arrested in in Altnagelvin Hospital on Saturday night and charged with disorderly behaviour in the hospital’s accident and emergency department.

Lots of people drink too much. Some people go on crime sprees. Not too many people do both simultaneously. Added to the list – a gent from from Wasilla, Alaska. Per The Alaska Dispatch News:

A 27-year-old Fairbanks man faces multiple charges after he robbed a Wasilla coffee stand, pulled a gun on another man, fled from authorities at high speed and drunkenly exposed himself along the Parks Highway, Alaska State Troopers say.

In an online dispatch, troopers wrote that a woman called authorities after she arrived at work around 5:15 a.m. Thursday at the coffee stand, on the Parks Highway at Vine Road. She found a man stealing money and other items from the stand, troopers said.

If you thought you could find an expert on anything, you would be wrong.  As reported by

A Turkish judge has taken full responsibility in a pornography case while acquitting the investigation’s suspects after the court failed to find an “expert on artificial vaginas.”

You’re probably wondering why the judge would need such an expert, aren’t you?

Money in the form of many large bills
You never know when you might need some cash. Some folks deal only in cash. (The Juice can think of a few …)  But this much?  As reported in The Brooklyn Paper’s Police Blotter (68th Precinct – Bay Ridge/Dyker Heights):

A crook hit the jackpot when he lifted $18,600 from an Eighth Avenue apartment between May 26 and June 3.

The resident was out of town for the span, and when he returned to his house between 67th and 68th streets in Dyker Heights, he found that someone had broken into his apartment and taken the cash and an iPhone 6 from his bedroom dresser, police said.

This is just not a smart way to cool yourself off for a lot of reasons – all of them obvious. As reported by

It was 90 degrees Thursday and a man apparently went into a South Williamson Wal-Mart to cool off.

The Pike County Sheriff’s Department on Friday obtained an arrest warrant for a man who entered Wal-Mart naked, shouted “I’m on fire” and then poured a gallon of milk on himself, according to a news release.

You may think that this could not happen in the United States. You would almost certainly be right. (The “insulting words” were not disclosed.) It happened in the United Arab Emirates. As reported by

The Federal Supreme Court has ordered a retrial for a man convicted of swearing at a colleague in a WhatsApp message, after prosecutors said the fine handed out was far too lenient. The Arab was fined Dhs3,000 by a court of first instance but prosecutors appealed the verdict, saying he should face a fine of up to Dhs250,000 or imprisonment.

The UAE’s most senior court backed prosecutors in a judgment issued this week.

heaven stairway
Forget about the other circumstances surrounding this man’s detention. It must have been obvious to the officers that something was amiss when the man said he was told to leave heaven. As reported by The Times and Democrat (Orangeburg, South Carolina):

A 53-year-old Cordova man was taken into custody and transported to the Regional Medical Center just before 3 a.m. Thursday after he was seen running completely naked down Cannon Bridge Road.

The man told a deputy that he had gone to heaven and was hearing people tell him to go back.

This so strange, you probably just assumed it happened in Florida.  Alas, this odd series of events took place in Ireland. As reported by The Irish Times:

A prisoner in Mountjoy Prison was stranded on a roof of the prison campus for nearly seven hours on Tuesday after climbing up the building to retrieve a bag of drugs.

The Irish Prison Service is investigating how the man, who is serving three and half years for producing an article during the course of a dispute, managed to gain access to the roof area of a building in the Mountjoy Prison Campus.

File this under “strange shoplifters.” Why would you steal a fraction of the amount of the merchandise you paid for? You’ll find this woman’s explanation interesting. From the Moultrie News Police Blotter:

A woman went into a local department store and purchased over $700’s worth of items, but not the two pairs of earrings she allegedly unpackaged and shoved in her pocket – valued at $98.

And because of that, she was taken to jail for shoplifting and put on trespass notice.

dentist dental mouth
Nobody just walks into a dentist’s office and does this, except this guy. As reported by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

King County prosecutors claim James Pfitzner, Jr., provided his name, date of birth and Social Security number to an office manager at Aurora Dental Care, located in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood. Pfitzner, 43, is alleged to have started masturbating moments later.

Describing the May 20 incident, a Seattle Police Department detective said the office manager then shouted at Pfitzner and called 911. Police responded but couldn’t find Pfitzner.
