It’s no joke. A court in India has temporarily banned Comedy Central. As reported by ndtv.com:

Entertainment channel Comedy Central has gone off-air for at least five days after the government found its shows having “obscene” and “vulgar” dialogues besides being derogatory to women.

The Delhi High Court had on Monday upheld the Centre’s decision to stop the channel’s transmission for 10 days and also imposed a fine of Rs. 20,000 payable to the Centre.

“We have carefully perused the contents of the two programmes to which objection has been taken and having gone through the same, are of the opinion that the matter requires no interference.

“The appellant is engaged in a business/enterprise which owing to its mass appeal/base has the potential of influencing the thought, behaviour and conduct of the citizens, especially the future citizens of this country,” the court had said dismissing the plea of Viacom 18, which owns the channel.

Not cool at all. Here’s the source.

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.

You’ll find the source, including a mug shot, here.

beer

Say it ain’t so! Not at the home of the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders! Well, according to komonews.com (Seattle), it appears to be so.

The beer at the center of Seattle sports universe [CenturyLink Field] appears to be watered down.

In two different undercover trips, the Problem Solvers collected six samples of draft beer from concession stands for a Seahawks and Sounders game. We wanted to see if the beers had a higher or lower alcohol content.

We worked with IEH Labs in Seattle and followed their strict instructions, using small vials to hold a few ounces of beer and then keeping them cool, either in a refrigerator inside bags packed with ice.

We dropped off the samples and within a few days we had our answers with the six beers we tested.

The results? Not good. Click hear to see them, and the source.

cell phone charger mobile

They break. They get lost. You want one for your car, your office, another room in your apartment or house.  But even in your darkest, lowest-phone-charge hour, you wouldn’t do this. As reported in the police blotter for the 62nd Precinct (Bensonhurst—Bath Beach) at brooklynpaper.com:

A brute beat a woman over the head and stole her cellphone charger on Bay 37th Street on Oct. 20, according to NYPD officials.

The woman was walking between 86th Street and Benson Avenue in Gravesend at 10:30 pm when the galoot ran up behind her, struck her in the back of the head, and snatched the charger from her pocket, police said.

To quote Fairfax (James Coburn) from the movie “Payback” (an overlooked, underrated flick): “Man, that’s just mean.”

Hey, the guy is an entrepreneur. You’re going to bust him for renting houses? Well, yes. As reported by cleveland.com:

Danny Heaggans [age 33] illegally gained access to at least four vacant, abandoned or foreclosed homes [on Bedford, Ohio] and installed locks to make it look like he had legitimate access, police said.

Heaggans made repairs and showed the properties to people looking to rent a house, according to police.

Investigators found that Heaggans presented lease agreements to the prospective renters and collected security deposits and one month’s rent.

Police think Heaggans is connected to several more housing scams in Cuyahoga County.

Interesting, but totally uncool. Here’s the source, including a mug shot.

ambulance

This woman took advantage of the country’s appropriate high-alert status (not the media-stoked fear of an outbreak here) in a really, really stupid way.  As reported by 610wtvn.com:

There is no word on possible charges involving a Columbus woman who admitted faking Ebola-like symptoms in order to get an ambulance to her South Champion Ave. home sooner.

The woman, who hasn’t been identified, initially told a 911 dispatcher that she had traveled to west Africa.

Medics donned hazmat suits and responded to the woman’s home, then took her to OSU’s Wexner Medical Center to be checked out.  There, the woman reportedly admitted she made the story up.

Here’s hoping she gets charged. And here’s the source.

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!

knife kitchen

Most folks probably have plenty of good memories from the time they spent sharing an apartment or a house.  As for these gents, not so much! Per The Colorado Springs Police Department:

On 9/27/14, at approximately 1903 hours, Colorado Springs Officers responded to the 7200 block of Alpenwood Way for a reported stabbing. Upon arrival officers determined a physical altercation between roommates escalated into Patrick Kelsey, a 25 year old male, stabbing his roommate in the leg with a kitchen knife. Kelsey left the residence in a vehicle where he was contacted in the area by officers placed into custody. Both Kelsey and the victim (roommate) sustained injuries in the altercation and were transported to area hospitals for treatment. Kelsey was charged with First Degree Assault and D.U.I.

Yeah, The Juice got plenty pissed at many a roommate over his years in group houses (shout out to Lumpy, Luke, Etch-A-Sketch, Cryin’ Shame and Knuckles), but never that pissed!

bingo

You would think a bingo hall would be a refuge of sorts. In this instance, you would be wrong. As reported by North Country Now (Potsdam, New York):

A Lisbon woman faces a harassment charge following a Sept. 26 domestic incident, according to St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies.

Ruth E. Toomey, 78, Lisbon, was charged with second-degree harassment. Deputies say the incident occurred at the West Potsdam Bingo Hall.

She was released on an appearance ticket.

You couldn’t just hold it in for a few more cards, or take it outside? What about your fellow bingo-goers?  Not cool. Here’s the source.
