twitter tweeter

Everyone has heard the old saying about real estate – location, location, location. If you didn’t think that this applies to tweeting, you will now. As reported by The Arab Times:

The Misdemeanor Court sentenced a Twitter user to two months in prison with hard labor and temporary compensation for insulting a poet. Attorney Hussein Al-Asfour, lawyer for the plaintiff, pointed out in court that the accused tweeted statements deemed offensive to the poet; especially since the tweets were about the latter’s personal life. The accused posted the offensive tweets again after the plaintiff announced his plan to contest the parliamentary elections. During investigations, the defendant refuted the allegation that he tweeted the offensive statements; claiming another person used his account. However, when the complaint was referred to the Electronic Crimes Department, it was found out the accused owns the account and he posted the insulting statements repeatedly. Taking these circumstances into consideration, Al-Asfour asked the court to impose the harshest penalty on the accused.

Yikes.

bite

While you were trying to shoplift, the loss prevention officer was just doing his job, which sometimes, well, really bites. As reported by The New Hampshire Union Leader:

A city woman is facing a felony charge because she bit a loss prevention officer at Macy’s who caught her shoplifting items worth $800, police said.

Ouch!

Crystal Frechette, 34, of 28 Railroad Square, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with robbery, a Class B felony.

That’s right – a felony.

Had she not allegedly bitten the Macy’s employee, the charge would have been a misdemeanor.

And if you’re wondering what the difference in potential sentences is …

A Class B felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison, while a misdemeanor carries a maximum 12-month jail sentence, both exclusive of fines.

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

python

You wouldn’t be surprised to hear that the victim of a crime assisted in the apprehension of the perp, would you? But what if the victim was … a reptile? As reported by 7online.com (WABC):

The incident happened around 7 p.m. Monday on Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park.

The driver, identified as 22-year-old Sarah Espinosa, of Albany, apparently lost control of her Toyota Prius, crossed the median, struck a Nissan Maxima and careened into the fire station.

So what did the “victim” have to do with the crash?

… according to police, was that a stolen snake in her car had wrapped itself around her neck.

Yikes!

The vehicle plowed through the main door, striking two fire trucks inside.

Fire personnel who were present at the time of the accident rendered aid to the victim, at which time they discovered a small ball python snake wrapped around her neck.

They removed the snake and secured it at the scene.

Officers responded and determined Espinosa had stolen the snake from a nearby PETCO just prior to the accident.

Oh there’s more.

During the investigation, Espinosa was found to be in possession of marijuana.

She was treated and released from a local hospital, and no other injuries were reported. The snake was returned to the store.

Espinosa is charged with reckless endangerment, petit larceny, reckless driving, driving while intoxicated and unlawful possession of marijuana.

elevator

If you live in Britain, you have to know that cameras are everywhere.  And yes, that includes elevators too. And seriously, you couldn’t wait another minute or two? Per The Daily Post:

A man who defecated in a lift is being hunted by police as part of a crackdown on “shameless” passengers who use North Wales train stations as toilets.

Yes, you read that right. And the CCTV video can be found at the link at the end of this post.

Officers with British Transport Police have released CCTV images of a person they would like to speak to in connection with the incident at Prestatyn station on Friday, June 13. Human excrement was found in the lift when station staff turned up for work the following morning.

The force has urged those who urinate and defecate at stations to “clean up their act” or face the consequences, and will send officers out onto the region’s stations and trains to tackle the “revolting” problem over the coming weeks.

Sergeant Tony Stamp of British Transport Police said: “In recent months, we have seen an increase in incidents of anti-social behaviour, particularly people urinating and defecating on station premises.

“This is very much about standards of behaviour and is often influenced by alcohol consumption.

No! Alcohol? Shocking.  So what happens if the miscreants are caught?

“Anyone committing such an offence could be banned from travelling on the rail network and will receive a criminal record, which may affect their employment.”

The Juice would suggest some community service too – cleaning up feces and urine of course. Here’s the source, with the video.

ear

No doubt this gent would rather have his ear back. Unfortunately, that is not an option.  As reported by the Belleville News-Democrat (Illinois):

Roger W. Harris, 21, alleged in a federal lawsuit that guards at the jail should have done more to protect him from other inmates. On May 11, 2012, inmate Teryun D. Jackson bit off Harris’ ear and another inmate, Marlon K. Jackson, flushed the ear down a toilet.

Ouch! What was the end result?

[Harris] received a $7,500 settlement from the county.

… The county admits no wrongdoing in the settlement, which was approved June 25. The News-Democrat received a copy of the settlement through a request under the state’s Freedom of Information Act.
Harris is serving his prison sentence at Graham Correctional Center in Hillsboro. He is eligible for parole in October.

chuck e cheese

Chuck E. Cheese provides all kinds of services – food, entertainment, birthday parties. What they don’t do, though, is babysit. Per The Post and Courier (Charleston, South Carolina):

A woman on Friday dropped four children off at a West Ashley Chuck E. Cheese while she went shopping for an hour and a half, Charleston police alleged in a report.

Meriana Sanusi Martin, 47, of Wildwood Lane in Beaufort, is charged with four counts of cruelty to children in connection with the incident, the report said.

If you’re wondering how someone does that, here’s how.

An employee told investigators that a woman arrived with four children around 2 p.m., but she walked out of the restaurant alone shortly afterward. The children were ages 9, 6, 4 and 4, police said.

An employee asked the woman if she was leaving. She replied saying she would be right back, according to the report.

Uh-huh.  “Right back.”

She didn’t return, however, until an officer called her from the restaurant, police said.

The oldest child told investigators the woman left them at the restaurant while she went shopping at Costco, the report said. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while at the restaurant, according to the business’ policy.

What’s she looking at?

Martin faces up to 30 days in jail or fines up to $200 on each cruelty charge.

school bus

This kid is Trouble. That capital “T” is intentional. Why? Check out what this youngster has been up to, as reported by wmbb.com (Florida):

Police say that a 12-year-old charged in June with stealing a school bus and taking it on a joyride has done it again.

Yes, again!

According to the Parker Police Department and Bay District Schools, 12-year-old Michael Propst is charged with taking a bus from a compound at Parker Elementary School and driving it to Franklin County Tuesday evening.

In June, Propst was charged with taking a bus and driving it from the same location to the Wal-Mart on Front Beach Road, a distance of 15 miles.

15 miles! Yikes. What about this time?

This time, the youth drove the bus to Franklin County, a distance of more than 55 miles.

Shazam! Here’s the source.

bag baggie

Regular Juice readers know that the cops are going to look everywhere, even there, and other areas in the vicinity! As reported in Off the Beat with Will Greenlee at tcpalm.com:

A deputy stopped the man after suspecting the window tint on his Mercury was illegal. The driver identified himself as Kevin Holloway, but the deputy determined that was bogus. The man said he lied because his license was “no good.”

The deputy confirmed his true name was Henry Chambliss, who along with having a “no good” license had a warrant for violation of probation.

Uh-oh.

Chambliss’ situation didn’t improve when the deputy found crack rocks in the car and a modified soda can that appeared to be used for smoking crack.

Chambliss, 37, said the apparent crack pipe “was most likely his wife’s.”

Really? Your wife’s? Not cool. And then …

“I explained to Mr. Chambliss that the jail would X ray him and if he had anything hidden on his person, they would find it,” the report states.

That’s when Chambliss reported there was “a baggie in his butt crack that contained drugs.”

A plastic bag with crack was extracted from Chambliss’ crack.

Yikes!

Chambliss was arrested on charges including violation of probation, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, giving false name while detained and driving while license habitually suspended.

car crash accident

Better they should both be involved in one accident, versus each of them slamming into an innocent driver. As reported by wnyt.com:

Police say two people were drunk when they crashed into each other early Sunday morning.

Yikes.

Officers say Laura Stefanik, 25, was making a three point turn in her SUV when she was hit by Ramel Alexander, 31, who was riding his motorcycle.

Alexander flew over Stefaink’s car and landed in the street.

Both were treated and released at Albany Medical Center.

They now face DWI and other related charges.

What are the odds? Here’s the source.

angry man anger

Something set this guy off,  because he went berzerk. As reported by CBC News:

Durham Regional Police say that witnesses reported seeing a Honda going north on Concession Road 7 at a high rate of speed and swerving in front of oncoming traffic at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police allege that the driver stopped near Foster Drive, got out of his car and confronted other motorists.

Not cool, but it was just beginning.

According to police, the same individual then drove away and stopped near Ravenshoe Road, where it is alleged that he reached into the cab of a dump truck, assaulted the driver and damaged a radio.

Police also allege that the suspect then threw a hammer, which hit the dump truck driver’s arm.

Even less cool.

It is also alleged that the suspect swung a recycling box at a homeowner, which hit that individual in the head.

Really, really uncool.

The suspect is also accused of assaulting a police officer that came to arrest him.

Now you’ve done it.

[The] 53-year-old Udora man faces two counts of assault with a weapon, a charge of assault, a charge of assaulting a police officer, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and mischief under $5,000.
