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.

noodles pasta

Indeed, making his food addictive was the goal of a Chinese restauranteur.  As reported by The South China Morning Post:

A noodle shop owner was detained after he was discovered to have been adding parts of a poppy plant – from which opium is made – to food so that customers would keep coming back.

The noodle shop’s owner was held for questioning and confessed that he purchased 2kg of poppy shells (the bud of the plant in which poppy seeds are found) for 600 yuan (HK$756) in August.

He secretly added it to the food to lure in more customers.

The owner was detained for 10 days. Poppy shells used to be an ingredient in a popular hot pot sauce until the product was banned, according to previous reports.

So how did they bust him? Unfortunately, one man had to pay a pretty hefty price to get some justice (just some, not much). (Click on the link at the end of this post.)

The restaurant’s activities came to light after one customer, Liu Juyou, 26, tested positive during a routine urine test under an anti-drink-driving programme, the Xian Evening News reported on Tuesday.

He said he never touched illegal substances, so was shocked by the test result.

You don’t have to imagine what the cops said. “Yeah. Uh-huh. You’re innocent, just like everyone else in here.” Thing is, he was.

Liu was detained for 15 days from September 3, unable to convince police that the drug, he suspected, might have come from the food from a noodle shop he frequented.

Liu asked his family to help him test the theory, eating noodles at the restaurant and going home to take urine tests. When the relatives also tested positive for drugs, they alerted the police, who launched an investigation.

angry anger

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.

Yeah, the beach may have a lot of sand, but it’s nothing like a sand trap. A Florida couple might argue otherwise. As reported by baynews9.com (St. Petersburg, Florida):

A couple was spotted hitting about a dozen golf balls into the Gulf of Mexico from the beach in Redington Shores on Sunday, according to witness Will Root.

The first thing The Juice thought was “they’re littering!”

“I don’t know what they were thinking, safety wise and environment wise,” [witness Will Root] said. “I hate to see that Seinfeld episode repeated.”

Root, 50, said the couple set up on the beach next to him and his wife, Beth LaBaren-Root, near 182nd Avenue W and Gulf Boulevard. They pulled out some clubs and drove a few golf balls into the Gulf before Root said he asked them what they were doing.

“They each hit two or three of them in and then I asked them if they had planned on retrieving the balls out of the water and they said, ‘no, they’d let the kids go out and find them and sell them on a street corner,'” said Root. “We’ve been here for a while and never seen somebody selling golf balls on the street corner.”

FWC spokesman Baryl Martin said it would be considered littering to hit golf balls into the Gulf, unless they’re the biodegradable kind that cruise ships use. Root said based on the man’s response, he doesn’t believe the balls were biodegradable.

“If the kids are going to go out and find them, that means they’re not biodegradable,” he said.

Redington Shores Mayor Bert Adams said this is the first time he’s ever heard of people teeing off on the beach and encourages witnesses to call the non-emergency police line next time.

“That’s definitely a littering violation. I don’t like to see our waters polluted by anything foreign,” said Adams. “Take your golf game to the golf course or to driving ranges, not the Gulf of Mexico.”

My, what a lovely couple! The perfect pair to round out your foursome!

Root said he’s glad he spoke up even though the couple continued hitting golf balls into the gulf.

“I would say they probably put 10 or 15 of them out there, at least,” he said. “I just hope other people would ask and step in … for our environment.”

sink dishes

It’s safe to say there have been many fights among roommates over dirty dishes. This gent, however, took it to a whole ‘nother level. As reported by Fox40.com (Sacramento, California):

An 18-year-old man reportedly told officers at the Sonora Regional Medical Center that his roommate had thrown a porcelain mug at him during the fight [over the dishes not being done].

So he threw a mug. Wait, there was a second mug …

Police say the man told them his roommate grabbed a second mug and beat him with it.

According to investigators, a third roommate tried to help but couldn’t because the injuries were too serious.

So, so uncool.

Officers arrested 27-year-old Daniel Slawinsky for assault with a deadly weapon – the mug – and booked him into jail.

Any defense?

Slawinsky reportedly admitted to police that he hurt his roommate, and that the argument was over the dishes not being done.

Nope. You’ll find the source, including a photo of the alleged perp, here.

All parents get mad at their kids. But this? From the Broadview Heights Police Blotter, as reported by the Sun Star Courier at cleveland.com:

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, EAST ROYALTON ROAD: At 6:19 p.m. Thursday, a patrolman went to Marymount South Medical Center for a report of domestic violence.

A 17-year-old girl told the officer she and her mother have not been getting along lately. [A major understatement, as you will soon see.] She said she had just had surgery and is staying at home to recover. She said her mother came into her room and they started arguing.

Allegedly, her mother took her cell phone and the two began to wrestle. The mother reportedly spit in her face, pushed her to the ground and started hitting her, causing her head to bleed.

A 21-year-old sister came into the room and allegedly used her body to separate her sister and mother. Her 17-year-old sister claimed their mother spat in her sister’s face and threw a cat at her before leaving the room.

The 17-year-old eventually locked her mother out of the house and called the police. Her friend’s parents came and picked her up and transported her to the medical center.

The mother is charged with domestic violence. The 17-year-old daughter requested a motion for a temporary protection order.

Threw a cat at her!!! Shazam!
