It was 90 degrees Thursday and a man apparently went into a South Williamson Wal-Mart to cool off.

Brilliant! They’ll never trace it back to you… The plea?
Circuit Judge Hale Stancil is used to presiding over criminal trials, but on Wednesday and Thursday his role in court became that of witness as he testified against a man who wrote him threatening letters from prison.
In two separate, one-day trials, two different six-member juries returned guilty verdicts against Lester Leroy Williams, 36, on two charges of written threats to kill or do bodily harm for writing separate threatening letters to the judge in August and October 2014, in which he threatened to harm Stancil and his family.
The Juice is a personal injury lawyer, not a criminal lawyer, so he’s not going to weigh in on all these charges, other than to wonder “Does she need to kill someone before she gets a serious sentence? Fifth DUI?” As reported by The Independent Record (Helena, Montana):

You may think that this could not happen in the United States. You would almost certainly be right. (The “insulting words” were not disclosed.) It happened in the United Arab Emirates. As reported by 7days.ae:
The Federal Supreme Court has ordered a retrial for a man convicted of swearing at a colleague in a WhatsApp message, after prosecutors said the fine handed out was far too lenient. The Arab was fined Dhs3,000 by a court of first instance but prosecutors appealed the verdict, saying he should face a fine of up to Dhs250,000 or imprisonment.
The UAE’s most senior court backed prosecutors in a judgment issued this week.
Forget about the other circumstances surrounding this man’s detention. It must have been obvious to the officers that something was amiss when the man said he was told to leave heaven. As reported by The Times and Democrat (Orangeburg, South Carolina):
A 53-year-old Cordova man was taken into custody and transported to the Regional Medical Center just before 3 a.m. Thursday after he was seen running completely naked down Cannon Bridge Road.
The man told a deputy that he had gone to heaven and was hearing people tell him to go back.
“Hey buddy. Sorry to see you stuck in the snow. Would you like some help?” Okay, so that’s not quite how it went down. Per the Paterson Press (via northjersey.com):

That is just cold.
Nobody likes a noisy neighbor. What if you lived next to a bar that cranked out music – outside – from 9 p.m. – 3 a.m., from 5 speakers, nonstop? Such was the fate of some folks in Barcelona, Spain. As reported at canada.com:
A court in Barcelona said three persons living near the city’s Donegal pub “developed depressive anxiety syndrome that needed medical treatment” due to the noise …
Isn’t the goal of recycling to recycle as much as you can, thus reducing our consumption of the resources that go into making the discarded items, and reducing the amount of trash that goes into landfills? So while it may not result in the greatest yard sale, more power to this gent. As reported by The Northwest Florida Daily News:
Police were called on May 26 for reports of a man going through garbage cans.
A woman called police around 3 a.m. on May 26 to report that a man was going through her neighbor’s garbage, according to the call log. She thought it was strange and wanted a Niceville Police officer to figure out why he was going through the garbage.
