broken heart

Why do ex-lovers so often go after their replacements?  How does the ex escape blame? As reported by The Times and Democrat (Orangeburg, South Carolina)

Police are looking for a woman accused of breaking out a window in a car owned by her ex-boyfriend’s lover, according to a report.

A Laquinta Drive woman notified deputies about 5:20 a.m. Monday that she had had some unwanted visitors earlier. She said a vehicle drove into her yard and three females got out. She said one of the women began striking her car window with a tire jack.

Deputies found traces of what looked like blood on the front steps of the residence and a tire jack in the yard.

The woman said her assailant was angry with her because her ex-boyfriend was inside the Laquinta Drive home.

Go figure. Here’s the source.

Seriously, it’s a dispute over one spot in a line, and you’re going to brandish a gun? You’re a cop! As reported at fusion.net:

A 911 recording has captured a Tennessee sergeant losing it over a RedBox movie rental.

In the call, obtained by the Knoxville News Sentinel, Sgt. Paul Story, an off-duty Knox County Sheriff’s Office employee, can be heard yelling and threatening a man, Timothy Nelson, after Nelson claimed the sergeant was cutting him in line. According to the KCSO’s own report, the newspaper said, Story was brandishing his gun during the heated exchange.

“You’re a bitch. You threatened me in front of my son,” Story is heard saying. He requested an on-duty officer come to the RedBox, and then called 911 on Nelson, creating the audio that we hear.

“I ain’t done nothing to you. … Are you going to arrest me over a Redbox rental?” Nelson asked.

“Yeah, you did, shit,” Story yelled. “Now that you find out I’m a police officer, you want to back up.”

“Why are you doing this?” asked Nelson.

“Because you’re a bitch,” Story said. “You think you’re somebody. You’re not… Just shut the hell up. I’m done talking to you. I want someone else to come out here and talk to your dumb ass. I’m going to put you in jail is what I’m going to do.”

“For what?” Nelson asked.

Story responded: “For assault, dumb ass. I worked all damn night. So what? You should have got out and stood in line like me. You should’ve waited in line.”

Nelson threatened to file a $25,000 lawsuit concerning the incident, but the department agreed to pay a settlement of $2,500. Story was never officially investigated for the incident, since an official complaint was never submitted. No disciplinary action has been taken.

Yikes. You’ll find the source here.

police car cop

Regular Juice readers would not be surprised to hear about someone hiding drugs in a body cavity. However, the circumstances of this perp’s secreting of the drugs are a bit unusual. As reported by northjersey.com;

Borough police who stopped a man and his pregnant passenger on a minor motor-vehicle violation Friday suspected there were drugs in their car.

But they didn’t find anything until they viewed videotape taken by a surveillance camera which caught the woman in the back seat of the police cruiser shoving what turned out to be 89 bags of heroin into a body cavity, police said.

In the cop car, and she almost got away with it!  Here’s the source.

Is it worse to burgle your family or strangers? That’s for you to decide. But this particular theft was particularly uncool (and gross) regardless.  As reported by kmov.com (St. Louis, Missouri):

The victim of a burglary says her father’s ashes were stolen and that two relatives and a third man are to blame after they thought they were stealing cocaine.

“I just couldn’t believe that they would take the ashes,” said Debora Matthews, the victim of the robbery. “But you know, they were kids and I guess just stupid.”

Ma’am, there’s no need to guess about that one.

Matthews says Devin Gesell and two minors rummaged through her home in St. Peters, stealing several items in addition to the ashes. She also says she believes the minors are two of her father’s grandchildren.

“I’m very upset because of the minors. I mean [they] were his grandsons,” Matthews said. “They did that to their grandfather. They didn’t even realize it was their grandfather’s ashes.”

But the did realize it eventually. How? Well …

She says the three thought the ashes stored in a container was cocaine, but after they tasted it, they realized what they had really stolen. However, instead of bring it back, they scattered the ashes all over the highway as they fled.

St. Peter’s police arrested Gesell and the minors. Gesell is now facing possible burglary and theft charges.

They tasted their grandfather’s ashes! You’ll find the source, and a video of the story, here.

Nobody likes it when the moment passes. (If you don’t get this reference, you missed a hilarious Seinfeld episode.) Nevertheless, some discretion is called for, especially if you are in a federal building!  As reported by journalstar.com:

An Illinois man who used indoor potted plants as toilets was sent to jail for five days.

The Omaha Police Department says officers responded to a report of a 32-year-old man defecating on a potted plant in the waiting room area of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services building in Omaha. A building supervisor says he then urinated on another plant.

The man pleaded guilty to indecent exposure and received a five-day jail sentence Tuesday in lieu of paying a fine.

Police say the man explained his actions by saying, “Sometimes you have to let the bear outside the woods.”

Although The Juice has strong opinions, you are unlikely to meet anyone with the conviction of this Idahoan. Under these circumstances, this is not a good thing. As reported by ktvb.com

A Boise woman is facing felony charges after police say she attacked a Jewish acquaintance, stomping on the woman’s neck as part of a bizarre bid to convert her to Christianity.

Margurite Dawn Haragan, 58, has been charged with two counts of malicious harassment in an attack police have labeled a hate crime.

Prosecutors say the incident started when Haragan showed up at the victim’s home Feb. 5. It’s not clear how the two women know each other.

“The defendant was banging on the front window yelling at her that she better believe in Jesus and she was not going to leave until she did believe in Jesus,” Ada County Prosecutor Dave Rothcheck said. He said the victim, identified in court only as “A.G.,” opened her door to tell Haragan to leave and to write down her license plate number.

That’s when the suspect slapped her in the face and dragged her to the ground by her hair, Roscheck said.

“The defendant began kicking the victim in the stomach and thigh area,” he said. “During this time the defendant was screaming at the victim that she better accept Jesus or she would not let up.”

Prosecutors say Haragan stepped onto A.G.’s neck as she lay on the ground, pressing down with her foot and pulling up on the woman’s head and hair. Eventually, the woman said she would become a Christian in an attempt to placate her attacker, Roscheck said, and Haragan let her go.

question mark marks

It’s very common for the law to have to catch up with technology. But what if the crime is something you just wouldn’t consider? This is such a case, as reported by The Chicago Tribune.

Jamarcus Applewhite was nearly finished with an eight-hour day hauling cars to Wisconsin early Thursday morning when he thought he popped a tire on the Bishop Ford Freeway just minutes from his destination.

Applewhite, 34, pulled his truck and trailer off to the side of the road near Sibley in Calumet City and got out to inspect the damage.

So something was wrong with his truck? Not exactly.

“I felt a lot of shaking,” Applewhite said. “I got out and was looking down, checking the tires when I hear an engine running … and I look and see a truck up there.”

Shazam! How’d that happen?

The pickup truck had run up the ramp of Applewhite’s empty car carrier as the vehicles sped down the highway. The pickup stopped just feet from the cab.

As Applewhite stood by the trailer, looking up, the driver leaned out and asked, “Can we pull over?”

“I’m like, ‘We are pulled over,’ ” Applewhite said.

Applewhite said he didn’t know how to get the driver and his truck off the carrier, so he called the state police.

There’s no mention of the gent being a stuntman, but it sounds like he could be.

Applewhite figures the driver must have been going very fast. Applewhite had been driving about 55 mph and didn’t see the pickup approaching.

He said a regular car could not have made it up the carrier’s ramp, but the pickup truck’s tires were big enough. If one of the carrier’s decks hadn’t been tilted, Applewhite said, the pickup could have crashed into his cab or flown right over it.

The charges?

He was cited with improper lane usage and failure to reduce speed, an Illinois State Police master sergeant said Thursday afternoon. More details were not released, pending investigation of the accident.

Like The Juice said, there are some things lawmakers just have no reason to consider. Here’s the source, with a photo of the trucks.

Hey, just like homeowners associations, all clubs have rules. The Mile High Club is no exception, and this mischievousness doesn’t cut the mustard. As reported by The Prince George Citizen (Halifax, Nova Scotia):

A flight attendant told the trial of a woman accused of committing an indecent act on a Toronto-to-Halifax flight that she and a man used a coat to cover their laps to fondle each other.

That’s a different club, right? Anyway …

The trial for 25-year-old Alicia Elizabeth Lander got underway Wednesday at Dartmouth provincial court.

Lander has pleaded not guilty to committing indecent acts, assaulting a police officer, committing an act of mischief and causing a disturbance at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport last Jan. 24.

John Dunn, who was service director for Air Canada Flight 610, testified for the Crown that Lander had asked if she could change seats to sit with her friend after boarding the plane in Toronto.

Dunn said about an hour into the flight, a passenger had told him the people sitting in 14A and 14B were about to join the “Mile High Club.”

He testified that he approached Lander and the man and found them with a jacket over their laps but said he could tell what was happening underneath.

He said he could see Lander’s thighs and pink thong.

“Her pants were down around her ankles,” said Dunn. “I said, ‘I want you to stop this now. It’s inappropriate.'”

Dunn said Lander’s hand was in the area of the man’s crotch making an up-and-down motion.

He said he asked Lander to get dressed and she eventually pulled up her pants, although she initially denied not being clothed.

Dunn said Lander was then asked to go back to the seat she was originally assigned in row 26, where she slept for the remainder of the flight.

He said he notified the captain of the incident, who arranged to have RCMP officers meet them at the gate.

Jason George Chase, 39, was also charged with committing an indecent act in connection with the same incident and had originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty on Wednesday.

If you wash your clothes in a laundromat, you might not want to read this. You have been warned. As reported by wcax.com:

Waterbury police say the teenager who urinated in a washing machine has turned himself in. Police released surveillance video Monday showing the suspect standing on a chair and relieving himself.

After the video aired, police received tips that led them to the 15-year-old boy. He could face charges in juvenile court or have his case referred to a restorative justice panel.

Even the best of friends are bound to have disagreements when they live together. Hell, even family members who live together have disagreements all the time. Funny I should say that … As reported by: The Jersey Journal at nj.com:

A Jersey City man has been charged with stabbing his cousin four times after arguing about the mess in their shared apartment, police say.

Prince Fullwood, 30, of Summit Avenue, was charged with domestic violence, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon, unlawful possession of a weapon.

He was found with blood all over his shirt yesterday at 1:38 p.m. at his home by officers responding to the scene, a police report said.

Yikes. So what was the cause of the argument?

Both Fullwood and the victim told police that the trouble started over the cleanliness of the home, the report said.

“We told you to …”

The victim and his brother, who also lives in the home, confronted Fullwood about his “messiness around the apartment” and tried to throw him out, the report said.

The victim told police an enraged Fullwood then grabbed a knife and stabbed him four times — twice in the lower abdomen, once in the back and once in the left tricep — the report said.

Fullwood, however, claims he was defending himself against the two brothers as they became violent, the report said.

Fullwood told police he is currently out on two bails, the report said.

Self defense huh? Guess we’ll just have to wait for this one to be sorted out.
