Sure, the “is that a … in your pants” is not a not totally uncommon theme. Still, a loris? As reported by the BBC:

Two of the men were found with slender lorises concealed in pouches in their briefs, a customs official at Indira Gandhi International Airport told the BBC.

Yes, they had lorises in their underwear! How were these clever gents caught?

The animals were uncovered when security guards noticed a bulge in their underwear during a frisk.

So maybe it’s not 100% certain that he was drinking with the monkeys, but he let them out of their cages, he was drunk, and … as reported by The August Chronicle (Georgia):

According to a GHSU Police Bureau incident report, a co-worker discovered Coley Mitchell, 32, partially unclothed in the Laboratory Animal Services technician locker room at the Sanders Research and Education Building about 10:30 p.m. Monday.

Yikes!

Campus police said Mitchell, a Lab Animal Services technician, was highly intoxicated and sitting in a chair with his pants half-down.

Partially clothed, highly intoxicated – what about the monkeys?

The spokeswoman said two monkeys were found outside their cages in the lab but were confined to the room. There is no indication the monkeys had been harmed.

Whew.

Police said Mitchell became combative and uncooperative with officers while being escorted from the locker room.

He was booked into the Richmond County jail Monday on charges of public intoxication.

A spokeswoman said Mitchell was still employed by Georgia Health Sciences University on Friday.

That’ll probably change. Here’s the source, including a mug shot.

You know the expression “throwing money out the window?” How about “money to burn?” Well, a man in Taiwan DID BOTH, and was arrested and “charged with public endangerment and destruction of currency,” as reported by news.com.au.

The man tossed the bills [$1 million Taiwan ($30,000 US)] from a taxi in a crowded part of Taichung city on Sunday as people stopped to pick up the cash, Changhua police official Lin Shih-ming said.

That’s not all.

He is believed to have thrown heaps more money on an earlier road trip starting in the capital Taipei.

And …

The man also burned about T$400,000 and had two more sacks of cash …

Why? “He might have had a nervous condition, as his state of mind wasn’t normal,” Lin said. Indeed. And where did the money come from?

“… apparently [from] the proceeds of a property sale …”

Throwing any chance of a good tip right out the window [bah da bing], the taxi driver turned our monied friend over to the police.

Sure, neighbors have their disagreements. But check this out, as reported by nj.com:

An elderly man was arrested Monday night after a neighbor’s fart allegedly drove him to threaten him with a gun, police said.

Daniel Collins, 72, had been involved in an ongoing dispute with the unidentified neighbor for some time, Det. Lt. Andrew McGurr told NJ.com.

The neighbor told officers that Collins pointed a revolver at him in the vestibule of their apartment building at 694 Cedar Lane at around 9:25 p.m.

Collins said he confronted the man after hearing him pass gas in front of his apartment door, but denied threatening him with a gun. He consented to a search, and officers recovered a .32 caliber revolver from his vehicle.

Wait, you could hear it in your apartment? Yikes.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a firearm and making terroristic threats.

Here’s the source, including a mug shot of Mr. Collins.

If you want to vote for Eddie Gonzalez for Congress, you can’t. But you can vote for VoteForEddie.com. As reported in The Miami Herald:

Unknown independent Eddie Gonzalez probably knew he’d get little money, no attention and have almost no shot against popular Republican incumbent Rep. Mario Diaz Balart.

So Gonzalez did the logical thing. He legally changed his name to “VoteForEddie.com.”

Wait. You can do that?

Gonzalez…..er… VoteForEddie.com petitioned a Miami-Dade judge to have his new name on the ballot and, viola …

If you find money along the side of the road, can you keep it? Maybe. It depends on where the money came from. In this, case, unfortunately for the finders, it’s a “no.” As reported by The South Bend Tribune:

The day after a Michigan City-area bank robbery, drivers apparently were stopping in Portage, Ind., and still finding money the holdup suspect allegedly threw from his car window along Interstate 94 during a police chase into Illinois.

So what’s the problem? Well …

On Monday, authorities reminded people that their seemingly good fortune could land them in jail.

Jail? Yikes!

“The bank has reported it as stolen, and it is bank property,” LaPorte County police Chief of Detectives John Boyd said.

About 4 p.m. Saturday, a dispatcher received an anonymous call about drivers stopping on the shoulder and picking up cash at the 20-mile marker, police said.

The money belongs to the LaPorte Savings branch on Johnson Road, which was robbed about 2 p.m. Friday.

And the bank robber?

The suspect, a 32-year-old man, was apprehended.

sex.jpg

Woman looking for hook up hooks up with man looking for same. But this was no ordinary hook-up, as reported by theprovince.com.

The 43-year-old man had met a woman four years his senior in a bar in the southern German city on Monday and she took him back to her apartment for sex, a police spokesman said in a statement.

“There they had sexual intercourse several times,” the spokesman said.

“When the 47-year-old wanted even more, her partner said no.”

The man then attempted to leave the apartment but the woman prevented him from escaping and demanded he sleep with her again.

The man then attempted to leave the apartment but the woman prevented him from escaping and demanded he sleep with her again.

“Because the 43-year-old saw no other alternative, he complied with the woman’s wishes another few times so he could finally leave the apartment,” the spokesman said.

Doesn’t life just suck? This poor, poor man. Finally, he took a stand.

“… when she continued to refuse and demanded even more sex from him, he fled to the balcony and alerted the police.”

What exactly do you yell in that situation?

The woman “then tried to talk the dispatched officers into similar activity but was unsuccessful.”

Is there a stronger word than “insatiable”?

She is now facing possible charges of sexual assault and illegal restraint.

Yikes. Here’s the source.

How does someone just up and lay claim to a street? When it’s abandoned by the city, and reclaimed, but the documents are never filed in the land records, that’s how. Unfortunately for Mullinville, Kansas, Mr. M.T. Liggett learned of this and took action. As reported by kwch.com:

Head north on Elm Street in Mullinville and you’ll hit a road block–a series of them actually.  It’s not the city that has closed that stretch of road–it’s M.T. Liggett. He says he owns it.

Liggett says the street is vacated property and therefore belongs to adjacent landowners including himself. Traffic can still pass through on the east side of the street–the side Liggett says his neighbor owns. The situation is not causing a traffic jam, but Mayor Andy Kimble says it’s far from an ideal situation.

“It’s a fifty to one hundred-year technicality that could have been taken care of quietly, but now we’ve got what we’ve got,” Kimble says.

Quietly? Good luck with that. Here’s Mr. Liggett:

“I’ll tell you what–if they want it back, they know where the court house is,” Liggett says. “It’s ten miles to the east!”

Here’s the backstory:

The mayor says that stretch of Elm is among three blocks of street the city abandoned back in 1908. A 1949 ordinance reopened the road, but Kimble says the change was never registered at the courthouse.

“It’s been plowed when it snows, it’s been grated when it’s muddy, it’s been mowed–all at city expense,” Kimble says.

The mayor says that stretch of Elm has been treated like every other city street up until Liggett got wind of the descrepancy and put up the barricades.

The mayor says the city council will discuss solutions to this situation at its next meeting.  He says he hopes to arrive at the friendliest solution possible.

Hahahaha. Here’s the source.

It would be misleading, though not totally false, to say this guy walked into a Florida Papa John’s and stole pizza. Here’s what happened, per wptv.com:

Polk County deputies say a man walked into Papa John’s Pizza restaurant, put on a pizza costume, and then walked out of the Lakeland restaurant Sunday evening.

You stole a pizza costume? The Juice is guessing you didn’t know they have video cameras in the store.

Detectives say a white man, perhaps 18 years old, entered the restaurant with six others, wearing a white button-up shirt, dark pants and a dark tie. He put the costume on and left the store wearing it.

The costume is described as approximately six feet tall, and looks like a giant slice of pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers and black olives.

Video surveillance shows the images of the suspect and four persons of interest. They are described as three older white males with dark hair. One had a full beard. The fourth person of interest is described as a white female with dark hair.

Here’s the source, including a photo and a video (skip to around 2:35).

A tv? If you’re wondering how this is possible, so is The Juice. As reported by WCCO (Minneapolis):

The officer then saw in plain view that King had a large item wrapped in plastic and stuffed down his pants. It was a 19-inch flat screen television. King also had other items in his pants, including a media player television remote, power cords, a bottle of brake fluid and two Xanax pills, a Schedule IV controlled substance.

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