It’s not uncommon for arrestees to give the police someone else’s name. It is uncommon for someone to try to pin a rap on his brother.  As reported by North Country Now (Potsdam, NY):

A Hannawa Falls man was jailed for felony driving while intoxicated and forgery following a traffic stop Nov. 30 on State Highway 56 in which he claimed to be his brother, Jason Capone, according to St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies.

Aaron Capone, 36, was charged with aggravated DWI, aggravated unlicensed operation, second-degree forgery, first-degree offering a false instrument, and second-degree criminal impersonation, officers said.

Capone? A. Capone? This hardly seems fair. Nevertheless, it hardly excuses his conduct, both to the public, and his brother (unless there’s some history we don’t know about).

Officers allege that Aaron gave false information about his identity and signed several documents in Jason’s name. Deputies had reported Saturday that Jason Capone was arrested on the aggravated DWI charge and inadequate plate lights violation.

How drunk was he (allegedly)?

Aaron reportedly had a blood alcohol content of .24 percent, three times the legal limit of .08 percent. His license was suspended and he had a prior DWI conviction within the last 10 years, deputies said.

That there’s plastered.

He was arraigned in Pierrepont Town Court and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility in $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond, deputies said.

fight

Now this is one dad you would think would espouse the idea of letting a kid fight his own battles.  If he does subscribe to that, he’s flexible, based on how his kid is doing! As reported by wkmb (Orlando, Florida):

New video released shows a father encouraging his son to fight another teen, then joining in on the fight when his son starts to lose, police said.

The video was obtained by Satellite Beach police after it was shot by teens who witnessed the Nov. 22 fight of SR-A1A.

Police arrested Carl Nicks, 51, for child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after the cell phone video shows him landing several punches on the teen.

Nice parenting.

On the video, spectators are heard shouting and egging on the fight between the two teen boys.

Police said Nicks was among the people encouraging the boys to fight. The video shows Nicks grab the teen by the back off his shirt after his son is seen grappling on the ground and being defeated in the fight. The video also shows the father grabbing the other child by the throat and punching the teen at least twice.

Others are heard on the video shouting at Nicks, “It’s not your fight” before he is seen being pulled away by a woman.

Police characterized the initial fight between the teens as ‘consensual,’ but other parents said the entire ordeal bothers them.

“He shouldn’t encourage them to fight and he shouldn’t have jumped in,” said Joe Pallante, who had not heard about the fight. “There’s not an excuse. If his son was getting beat up, he could have grabbed his son and pulled him out of there and got out of there.”

It’s not too hard to figure out who the owner of this vehicle roots for. It’s a little harder to figure out why someone who came across this plate decided to take it to another level. As reported in The Washington Post:

The above license plate was tweeted to Dan yesterday by an eagle-eyed reader who took exception to its meaning. While there are many possible explanations for what the “F” stands for, the Cowboys sticker on the car indicates that the real answer is one I can’t write here.

The person who tweeted the photo also copied the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles’ Twitter feed. The DMV is on top of its social media, and has vowed to look into it.

The Juice has posted numerous stories on license plates and the license plate police. Just use the search box to the right to find more. (Search “license plate”.)

It’s a big country. And if you live in or near a major metropolitan area, you may forget about places like Newcastle, Wyoming. Now the folks there may be very nice, but if this is any indication, they’re not very open-minded. Check out this law:

Sec. 17-14. – Obscenity—Public appearance in nude; dress not belonging to sex of wearer; indecent exposure; lewd or indecent behavior.

It shall be unlawful for any person to appear in any public place in the city in a state of nudity or in dress not belonging to the sex of such person or in an indecent or lewd dress or to make any indecent exposure of his person or to commit any lewd or indecent act or behavior.

“… or in dress not belonging to the sex of such person …” Really? Yes, really. Here’s a link to the law.

Having looked at strange law-related stories, day after day, for years, there’s no denying that a fair number of people are nuts about McDonald’s. To The Juice anyway, it remains one of life’s unexplained phenomena. Here’s yet another example, as reported by clickondetroit.com:

Police in Tennessee say a woman ran over her boyfriend three times after he refused to go to McDonald’s with her.

Crystal Greer Brooks, 33, of Kingsport was apparently upset that her boyfriend wanted to eat at a different restaurant, police told the Kingsport Times-News.

Officers were called to West Carters Valley Road shortly after midnight last Wednesday.

What did the police find?

They found Brooks’ boyfriend with abrasions to his arms and back.

His clothing “appeared torn, consistent with being dragged on the pavement,” the Times-News reported.

He told police Brooks forced him over to the side of the road, then got in his pickup truck and ran him over — three times.

That’s just mean. The charges?

Brooks has been charged with aggravated assault.

Wonder how she’ll like the food in jail? Here’s the source.

It’s a safe bet that nobody will be trick-or-treating at this man’s house for a long time. As reported at mynews13.com:

Children trick-or-treating Thursday night in a Deltona neighborhood got a rude surprise when Volusia County deputies said a 63-year-old man answered the door in a robe that exposed his genitals.

Call the cops!

One deputy even said when he was dispatched to the home to investigate, the same thing happened to him.

Yikes. You can read more, and see a photo of the perp, here.

Doing any one of these things and driving is stupid. Doing all three at the same time? Idiotic. As reported by BeeNews.com (Western New York):

An Orchard Park man was charged with DWI after patrol responded to an accident in a Union Road lot.

While speaking to the subject, the officer smelled alcohol, and the man said, “Yeah I hit him. I was eating a chicken wing and texting.” His blood alcohol content was .11 percent.

Doh!

po box post office boxes

Yeah, like the post office is going to grant access to a post office box to someone other than the person renting the box. Well, there’s one woman out there who thinks that should be the case. No doubt she would feel otherwise if someone wanted access to her post office box. As reported at nj.com:

A postal customer who was refused access to someone else’s post office box physically assaulted the postal employee who refused her, police said.

Yes, that’s certain to engender cooperation.

On Thursday, Gail Montgomery, 47, of Bridgewater, grabbed and pulled the hair of postal employee Linda Zhang at the United States Post Office at 495 North Bridge Street, according to Lt. Timothy Hoey of the Bridgewater Police.

Montgomery physically assaulted Zhang after the employee would not allow Montgomery to access another person’s post office box, Hoey said.

This next bit will probably not come as a big shock to you:

After the incident, police found that Montgomery had outstanding warrants in three other jurisdictions, Hoey said.

So what happened to Ms. Montgomery? She found some temporary lodging.

Montgomery was lodged in Somerset County Jail in Somerville in lieu of $2,100 bail, Hoey said.

Different strokes, right? But you have just have to wonder how someone could think that  this (1) is okay morally (2) looks cool, and (3) will not send you straight to hell. As reported at vegfriends.com:

Yummypets revolts against this new fashion jewelry in China: live animals in a plastic sealed bag containing a liquid with nutrient and oxygen that allows them to live up to 2 months.

Yummypets has signed the petition and encourage you to do the same so that the UN requires the Chinese government to ban the manufacture and sale of amulets and jewelry containing live animals.

You’ll find the petition here.

vote for me

If something bad happens to a candidate, some voters will feel sympathy for him/her, and will vote accordingly. Nevertheless, it’s crass to play the play the sympathy card even in the event of something serious. But this? Not cool. As reported at HighlineTimes.com (Burien, WA):

Campaign signs for Des Moines Municipal Court Judge Veronica Galvan were vandalized twice over the weekend. The signs, placed along Des Moines Memorial Drive, were cut off their stakes with a blade or sharp implement. Galvanʼs signs were initially vandalized sometime Friday evening. The culprit cut one side off each sign, so only half of each sign was left on the stake. A campaign volunteer replaced the damaged signs on Saturday. Then, on Saturday night, the signs were hit again. This time, both sides of the signs were cut off, leaving only the stakes.

Yeah, this is probably the only case of political signs being vandalized.  But what you clearly fail to understand is that this was not any old vandalism. Take it away judge.

Galvan noted that the manner in which the signs were taken down feels threatening. “This is more than a mere knocking down of signs,” said Judge Galvan. “Someone went to extra effort to send a message.”

Really? You’re going there? The message is that they don’t like you! Maybe you put the person in jail. Who knows, but please, don’t pander for votes off of this. Here’s the source.
