dice gambling rolling

Unless you have a gambling problem, you’ll usually play with what you are prepared to lose. No way were these gents prepared to lose what they did. As reported by The Arab Times:

The Ahmadi police have arrested 12 Asians [in Kuwait City] for gambling in an open area at an unidentified location, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. They have been referred to the concerned authorities to prepare their deportation.

Now that is some high stakes gambling.

happy birthday

To some folks birthdays are just another day. To others, they are a really big deal. This gent is definitely in the latter group.  As reported by The Gainesville Sun:

James E. Irving Jr., 44, got into a fight with his live-in girlfriend over his birthday present and preferred celebratory breakfast, according to a Gainesville Police Department booking report and information provided by GPD spokesman Officer Ben Tobias. Irving wanted pancakes and instead got waffles.

Oh no you didn’t just serve me waffles!

To express his disdain, Irving poked his girlfriend in the eye, which prompted a call to the Police Department, the report states. Irving was handcuffed and taken to the Alachua County jail on a misdemeanor battery charge.

In case you’re wondering …

On Monday morning, jail staff served inmates a breakfast of fruit, grits, sausage, bread and butter, according to Sgt. Becky Butscher, an Alachua County sheriff’s spokeswoman.

People often don’t show up for their court appearances. But don’t go giving this woman (yes, that’s her above) any props just yet. Per The South Jersey Times via nj.com:

A Lindenwold woman who was in court for driving with a suspended license allegedly left after being heard for multiple traffic offenses, hopped in her car and drove off, borough police said.

So obviously the judge reinstated her license? Well, not exactly.

At the conclusion of her hearing in Berlin Municipal Court on Wednesday, Tammy M. Coppoletta allegedly got in the driver’s seat of her vehicle and drove away. She was soon pulled over for driving with a suspended license, police said.

Coppoletta reportedly had more than $4,000 in active warrants and was in possession of prescription drugs that were not prescribed to her, police said.

Double whammy. Back to court you go.

She was brought back in front of the judge, who sent her to Camden County Jail for 20 days. An additional charge for possession of a controlled dangerous substance was lodged against her, with an additional bail amount of $5,000 being set.

You know the old saying, at least as told by former President Bush, “… fool me once, shame on – shame on you. Fool me – you can’t get fooled again.” Any way, you get the idea. Here’s the source.

What, you doubt The Juice? Besides, who could make this stuff up? As reported at theguardian.com:

A man who taxied his light plane down a main street in Western Australia’s Pilbara region and parked it outside a pub is expected to be charged.

Say what?

Newman police sergeant Mark McKenzie said the plane had its propeller running, its wings removed and was being steered by foot pedals on Friday.

The man parked the plane outside the Newman Hotel and was then interviewed by police.

“It was a pretty stupid thing to do,” McKenzie said.

Stupid is right. Why would you take the wings off of a plane? (joking)

“Kids were coming home from school. It could have been very ugly. All he needed was one gust of wind … because without the wings, it’s not stable.

“People think it was a bit of a laugh but it was very dangerous and we’re not very happy with it.”

McKenzie said police had examined the Road Traffic Act but would likely charge the man under the Criminal Code.

“I would assume there would be an offence under the Criminal Code that may fit the bill.

“I’m confident that he will be charged with something soon.”

Really? You can’t come up with anything? This might be heartening to his defense lawyer should he decide to fight whatever he is eventually charged with. Here’s the source, including a photo of the plane.

squirrel squirrels

Come on. Zombies are so slow and easy to kill. But squirrels? Those little varmints are fast.  As reported at WashingtonPost.com

Ashburn [Virginia] , Partlow Road, Oct. 21. A caller reported that a squirrel was chasing and attacking children on a playground. An animal control officer observed the squirrel gather food and store it under a swing set. There was no sign of aggression. The officer told people there about wildlife hibernation habits.

Too much coffee? Too much TV? Too many shrooms? Anyway, here’s the source.

Simmer down there fellas. Or put some gloves on and hit a punching bag. But don’t do this! As reported by Per The Hamilton Spectator [Ontario]:

According to police, a man was driving his car on Mud St. W Friday when the passenger in a truck driving by in the next lane threw something out the window, striking his car.

He honked, but the truck did not stop. When the two vehicles pulled up to a red light, the truck passenger got out and waved a knife at the man in the car.

He drove away, but the truck followed. At the next red light, the truck passenger got out and threw a brick at the car windshield. Hamilton Police responded and with help from witnesses, arrested a man at his home.

Kyle David Lee, 24, of Stoney Creek is charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats to cause bodily harm, mischief under $5,000 and two counts of failing to comply with probation.

Something, then a knife, then a brick? Whoa there fellas. You’ll find the source here.

speeding

Most people appreciate just being told the truth. Police officers are no exception. So enough with the excuses already! But if you want to read some whoppers, check this out, as reported by The Cambridge News:

Cambridgeshire police have released the raft of bizarre excuses told to officers who have stopped motorists.

Here we go …

Drivers stopped for speeding and breaking other road rules have blamed messy children, pregnant dogs, the “wrong” speed limit and trying to catch a ferry by doing 150mph.

One young driver who was stopped by police was not wearing a seatbelt as the “colour did not match clothes he was wearing”.

And a motorcyclist speeding stated: “I did not know laws of physics” as in windy conditions it was safer for him to go quicker.

Other recent excuses include the “chap” stopped for speeding at 37mph in a 30mph zone near Cambridge who said it was “slow enough for his village”.

And one mother was stopped for speeding and gave the excuse: “I was concentrating on my children not spilling their food in the car.”

Driver Kevin Millard, of Berwick-upon-Tweed, was caught near Histon after travelling at 150mph while four young children were in the car without seatbelts and only heavy traffic on the A14 slowed him to 90mph. His excuse to officers on September 14 was that he was trying to get to Dover in time to board the last ferry to Germany after missing a vessel in Hull. He was jailed for 20 weeks at Peterborough Crown Court on Tuesday, June 17.

Sgt Mark Rabel, based at Histon police station, said: “I had an excuse when I asked a motorist I stopped for speeding that it was an emergency. Apparently he had to get home with haste as his dog was giving birth to puppies. I kid you not. A ticket was issued.”

[Not a good day for this family ] … “the husband and wife team [were] stopped separately for speeding within 20 minutes of each other” in a village near Cambridge.

We’ve all had bad roommate experiences. It’s unlikely any of you did anything similar to what this gent did. As reported by rentonreport.com:

A 28-year-old Renton man was arrested early Sept. 30 after he thrust a samurai sword through his bedroom door his roommate was standing behind.

Say what?

The two were arguing when the suspect went into his bedroom. The suspect punched a hole in the door and then thrust the sword out the door, stopping about five inches from the victim’s pelvic area.

The victim jumped back and wasn’t stabbed. “That could have killed me,” he told the roommate.

The suspect was still in his bedroom when officers arrived. He surrendered. He refused treatment for superficial cuts to his hand and arm.

He was booked into the King County Jail for second-degree domestic assault for intentionally forcing the sword through the door in an attempt to stab the victim.

Whew. Five inches! Might want to live on your own for a while.

sleeping man guy

The Juice has known some heavy sleepers. But come on. You don’t sleep through this. And remember, is was 4:15 a.m. (Hint: He was probably passed out.)  As reported in brooklynpaper.com’s police blotter:

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

Three lowlifes stole a wallet out of a sleeping straphanger’s pocket aboard a 2 train on Sept. 17, the authorities reported.

So how did they do it?

The 24-year-old victim said he fell asleep on a Manhattan-bound train at 4:15 am, and woke up at the Clark Street station with a hole cut in his pocket and his wallet gone.

He saw three fiends exit the train as he woke up, and a fellow passenger told him the crew had done the deed, an account states.

But don’t worry. The miscreants did leave a few thinks behind.

Inside the Clark Street station, the victim found his gym membership card and a condom, both of which had been in his wallet, law enforcement officials said.

Yeah, you really don’t want to fall asleep late at night on the subway. The Juice has posted a similar story in the past about another gent who also slept through the whole thing!

Here’s the question The Juice has for the perp: WTF?  As reported by The Herald (Rock Hill, South Carolina):

[According to Rock Hill police], a 44-year-old man texted [Julie] Baker [31] to break up with her this weekend. She then went to his room at Piedmont Medical Center and began fighting the man’s ex-wife.

Say what? First of all, breaking up with someone via text? Say it to her face. And speaking of faces …

Baker left before police arrived, but an officer noticed a cut and swelling above the ex-wife’s eye.

Yeah, that makes sense. Take it out on his ex-wife.

Warrants were issued and Baker was arrested Tuesday.
