Are you really going to stand there and claim that you booted that vehicle? Uh-huh. Well, then where’s the boot? And the vehicle? As reported by the Brooklyn Paper Police Blotter:

84th Precinct – Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

A scofflaw managed to remove his car from Dean Street on Dec. 26, despite the city’s boot, according to cops.

A traffic officer reported that he placed a boot on a Chevy Trailblazer at 3:52 pm, while it was parked between Court Street and Boerum Place. He returned at 6:30 pm to remove the boot so a tow truck could take the vehicle, but the car and boot were already gone, cops said. The police report is for the stolen boot, which cops value at $1,200.

Someone’s going back to booting school!

The Juice will wager you have not encountered a shoplifter like this woman. As reported by by wtsp.com:

Guapiles, Costa Rica  – Captured on video, a woman shocked workers by stealing a flat screen TV by stuffing it up her dress, between her legs.

The woman simply walked into the store, picked up the packaged TV, placed it between her legs and walked out along with an accomplice.

According to reports, it all happened in 13 seconds:

“She did it so quickly no one had time to notice or react,” said the shop assistant.

Yikes! Here’s the source, which includes the video.

This is certainly not your run-of-the-mill door-to-door salesman story… It started when the former Derry town administrator answered the door in the nude. It ended with a jury trial. Per The New Hampshire Union Leader:

A jury found ex-Derry town administrator John Anderson not guilty on Thursday of indecent exposure for inviting a DirecTV salesman inside his home and conversing with him while in the nude. The verdict marks a sudden reversal for Anderson, 51, who had initially been found guilty in August on the Class A misdemeanor by a 10th Circuit Court judge. This week’s trial in Rockingham County Superior Court was an appeal of that verdict…

Before the verdict, John Anderson spent Thursday on the witness stand answering questions about why he decided to use his underwear to clean up spilled water, or answer the door in the nude.
Assistant County Attorney Annaliese Wolf argued to jurors that Anderson’s behavior was “flat-out strange,” including his decision to strip off his underwear and mop up a glass of spilled water after being awoken by the salesman at his door.

There’s a lot more to the story, which you can read here.

Need a ride? This is one of the worst ideas for getting one! As reported by waaytv.com:

[Kurt] Smith [56] called the State Police on Sunday at around 2 p.m. to report a disorderly person at the Red Lion Motel, where he was staying, authorities said.

But the two troopers who responded discovered there was no disorderly person at the Route 206 inn — just Smith, who apparently had transportation challenges. When the troopers arrived, Smith admitted he’d made the call and then asked to be taken to a local convenience store, police said.

This is definitely not your average burglary! As reported at nbcphiladelphia.com

A burglar who authorities said masturbated on a woman’s deck and then stole her dog was shot when he broke into a second Bucks County apartment, according to investigators.

Right? Nothing average about that! You can read more, and watch a video about the story, here.

You’ll have to click on the link below to see the photograph of the haul. Only then can you understand the magnitude of what this fetishist did. As reported by The South China Morning Post:

Some thieves have a penchant for the strangest things.

Residents in Yulin city, Guangxi province, were treated to a colourful array of more than 2,000 sets of women’s lingerie laid out neatly on the ground at a public space in their neighbourhood on Saturday.

The used underwear, which belonged to women in the neighbourhood, had been stolen by a male resident over the course of the year, news website Gxnew.com.cn reported.

The report said the man hid the stolen lingerie above the false ceiling of several stairwells within the residential building where he lived.

police station sign

Occasionally people walk into a police station and confess to crimes. But how often do they walk into the station and commit crimes? Well, it happened recently in Philly, per wpvi tv (Philadelphia, PA).

It was around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when police say 33-year-old Carlen Higgs walked into the Upper Darby police station talking gibberish.

He then allegedly sat down in the station lobby and lit up a marijuana cigarette.

You can guess what happened next – but just part of it.

Higgs was then arrested and placed in a holding cell.

That’s the part you guessed …

While in the cell, police say, he took off all of his clothes, defecated on the floor and then wiped his waste on the walls.

No way you guessed that part.

Higgs was taken to a mental health facility where it was determined that he was high on drugs.

You might have guessed that part too.

He is now charged with possession of an illegal drug and disorderly conduct.

Sure, there are many possible explanations. But The Juice is going with this one:  Someone had a REALLY bad day in court at some point in his or her life. As reported by WISC TV (at channel3000.com):

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin said changes are needed to protect employees at the City-County Building after Madison municipal court workers arrived at work Wednesday morning to find one of the courtroom walls covered with excrement.

Kelly McConnell, a judicial support clerk, sent an email and photo to Soglin, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi, Madison Police Chief Mike Koval and many other public officials detailing her frustrations.

“So THIS was found in the courtroom this morning as we were trying to get ready for court!” McConnell wrote. “Someone has been in the courtroom, AGAIN, and defecated in the courtroom itself. When will SOMEONE do something about what is going on in this building???!!!”

Yikes! You can read more, and see a video, here.

The Juice has never heard of anything happening like this in the United States nor does he expect to, ever.  However, this was in India, as reported at dnaIndia.com:

A 24-year-old man allegedly slapped actress and model Gauhar Khan and assaulted her at the sets of a musical reality show, India’s Raw Star, on Sunday. The man was allegedly against her wearing short clothes.

The incident happened on Sunday evening when Khan, the host of the show, was shooting for its grand finale episode. According to the police, a member of the audience, Akil Malik, 24, walked up to the stage, allegedly misbehaved with her and then slapped her. The incident happened at Studio number 9, Filmcity in Goregaon East.

A police officer said, “Malik told the actress that he was against her wearing short clothes before slapping her. He touched her inappropriately as well. Following this, guards deployed at the show intervened and stopped him. He was immediately handed over to the police. We took him in custody and have sent him for medical examination. He will be arrested soon.”

At the time of going to press, the Aarey Colony police was in the process of registering a case under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 354 (assault or criminal force on woman with intent to outrage her modesty) under the Indian Penal Code. “We will be taking statements from the actress. Currently we are interrogating the accused. Investigations are on,” said Punjabrao Ugale, DCP of Zone 12.

security camera

It wasn’t hard to prove that this was an inside job! You might ask yourself how a security guard could possibly be unaware of security cameras in the store where he worked. It’s definitely a head-scratcher.  As reported in The Brooklyn Paper’s Police Blotter (90th Precinct – Southside–Williamsburg):

The owner of a Varet Street jeans and sneakers store said that a security guard stole merchandise between Nov. 11 and Nov. 14.

The proprietor of the establishment between Graham Avenue and Humboldt Street reported that he caught the rent-a-cop on video taking several pairs of sneakers from between Nov. 11 at 5 pm and Nov. 14 at 11 am.

Um, er, uh.
