One would think, as these two men did, that robbing a pizza delivery guy, while not that lucrative, would be a low-risk crime – even more so if the would-be robbers had shotguns. One would be wrong, at least in this case from Columbus, Ohio. Per 10tv.com:

According to police, the Padova’s Pizza delivery driver was delivering a pizza when two men armed with shotguns approached him, in the 5000 block of Hatfield Dr., at about 11:45 p.m. Monday.

The driver, who was licensed to carry a gun, told the men to stay away from him. When the men continued to approach the driver, he shot at them. One of the alleged would-be robbers was found a short distance away, on Rutledge Drive, with wounds to his face, chest and thigh.

Shazam!

“He immediately pulled out his gun, fired five to six rounds, definitely hit one that we know of,” said Madison Township police Det. James Galvin.

The man who was struck by bullets, identified as 20-year-old Cortez Bradley, was transported to Grant Medical Center. Investigators said that the second suspected robber, Bradley’s 16-year-old cousin, fled the scene and sent a text messages to family members, indicating that he was shot twice.

Though it worked out okay this time, you’d be correct if you assumed that this is not the owner’s policy.

Padova’s Pizza owner Robert Steven said that he has been robbed a number of times and said that he gives all his employees the same advice.

“My drivers are told to give them what they want and get out of there,” Steven said.

Good advice. Fortunately for the delivery man, he didn’t pay a price for ignoring it. Click here for the source.

Who doesn’t like horses? You can start with this Nebraska lady, at least when it comes to police horses. As reported by omaha.com:

Three police officers and a horse were needed to take a 20-year-old Omaha woman into custody early Sunday in the Old Market after she intervened in a traffic stop.

Officer Jacob Bettin, a police spokesman, said the three officers all sustained minor injuries including scratches, cuts and bite marks during the incident. The woman was booked into jail for resisting arrest, three counts of assaulting an officer and one count of assaulting a police service animal.

Bettin said the incident began about 1:20 a.m. when the woman approached an officer who had made a traffic stop near 10th and Harney Streets. The woman, who was not part of the traffic stop, approached the officer and became “verbally and physically combative,” he said.

Two other officers, including one on patrol service horse Gunny, arrived to help place the woman under arrest.

Yikes. Here’s the source.

What could possibly have been going through this attorney’s mind in the lead-up to this bizarre, just plain gross in a really weird way, action? As reported by HawaiiNewsNow:

A Kauai attorney was convicted of harassment Thursday after being accused of licking his client’s ear at his office last year.

First reaction: Eww!

The 26 year-old complaining witness said in court that she was in the Lihue office of attorney Lawrence McCreery July 26, 2011 discussing her child custody case when the incident occurred.

She said McCreery, who was licensed to practice law in Hawaii in 1975, touched her arm and said, “You look so good,” and, “Too bad you’re married.” The witness said McCreery made a “weird sound” and then hugged her tightly and licked the back of her right ear.

As for Mr. McCreery:

McCreery took the stand Thursday to deny the charges. He testified that the complaining witness initiated the hug and he denied licking her ear.

McCreery’s defense attorney, Michael Soong, argued that it would be physically difficult for the incident to have occurred as reported by the witness.

Uh-huh.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Lance Kobashigawa told the court that all elements of the harassment law were proved and that there was no mistake that what the complaining witness felt on her ear that day was McCreery licking her.

You know what the judge concluded. Here’s what he said:

Per Diem Fifth Circuit District Court Judge Frank Rothschild said there was no evidence that the complaining witness had any motive to make up the story or to lie.

The judge added that defense claims early in the trial that the defense would dispute the complaining witness’s credibility never materialized.

“Quite frankly,” said the judge, “these are the actions of a dirty old man.”

Ouch. That has got to hurt, your reputation, and a whole lot more. But wait – it’s not over yet.

McCreery’s attorney told the court that he would be appealing the decision.

Yeah, that’s a good idea. Keep the story alive, when you have virtually no chance of prevailing. Here’s the source.

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.

You’ve probably never burgled before. But if you did, don’t you think you’d be a little nervous? Not this lady, as reported by wdrb.com (Louisville, Kentucky)

Police say a Florence, Ky., woman was so comfortable burglarizing homes that she even stopped to take a shower during one of her crimes.

Virginia McFadden, age 31, is charged with nine counts of burglary after police say she broke into residences on Sherwood Avenue, Everett Avenue, Highland Avenue, Glenmary Avenue and Murray Avenue.

A shower! How was this clean, cool burglar busted?

Police say McFadden was caught on surveillance video trying to use one of her victims’ gift cards at WalMart.

Doh!

She was arrested Thursday afternoon after police say she confessed to the burglaries.

Here’s the source, complete with Ms. McFadden’s mug shot.

Okay, so you’re boyfriend won’t let you drive his car. Good decision, since you were drunk. So then you decide to “borrow” his brother’s car. Want to guess what his brother does for a living? As reported by The Northwest Florida Daily News:

A 26-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday night after stealing a Walton County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle.

Britney Michelle Simpson of Warner Robbins, Ga.,and her boyfriend were staying with his brother, an investigator with the Sheriff’s Office, according to a press release.

She stole a patrol car! Brilliant!

While at the investigator’s home, the couple began to argue over the fact that Simpson wanted to drive her boyfriend’s vehicle. Simpson was highly intoxicated at the time.

When the man denied her access to her car, Simpson found a container that held the keys to the investigator’s patrol vehicle — the Walton County Sheriff’s officer was not home at the time.

Simpson was believed to be headed towards Destin and a “BOLO” (be on the look out) was issued. Twenty minutes after leaving, Simpson returned and exchanged the Sheriff’s vehicle for her boyfriend’s vehicle.

She was stopped a short distance from the home by a deputy who arrested her for driving under the Influence and grand theft auto.

Sheriff’s car? What’re you talking about? I’m just out here driving drunk in my boyfriend’s car! How dare you!

Simpson is being held in Walton County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Where’s the love for a couple drunk fellas who, responsibly, walked home after they got lit? You’re probably wondering why they were arrested. Well, let’s just say The Juice is about to expose the reason why, as reported in The Post and Courier:

After they were arrested early Monday, two drunken revelers told police officers that they thought it would be a good idea to strip off their clothes and walk around downtown Charleston, according to an incident report.

Christoph Robin Egan, 19, and Andrew Stephen Dunford, 21, both of Montclair, N.J., face a charge of indecent exposure after an officer spotted the duo around 2 a.m. on Logan Street “completely in the nude,” the report stated.

The children! Cover their eyes! Um, never mind. This happened around 2:00 in the morning.

After stopping the men about two blocks north of Broad Street, the Charleston Police Department officer noted that Egan had only a cellphone and that Dunford was carrying a bag with their clothes. Both smelled of alcohol, were slurring their speech and had bloodshot eyes, the officer wrote.

Egan told the officer that they had just left some bars and “thought it would be fun” to walk home naked, according to the report. The report did not explain how the underage man was allowed to drink.

Egan and Dunford were jailed. They posted bail later in the day and were released.

Excellent use of police resources. Here’s the source, including mug shots.

Let’s say you are in Akron, Ohio, you’re gay, and you see someone you’re interested in, who you think is interested in you. Well, you better be sure. Why? Check out this Akron ordinance:

133.04 – Importuning

… B. No person shall solicit a person of the same sex to engage in sexual activity with the offender, when the offender knows the solicitation is offensive to the other person, or is reckless in that regard.

Importuning? Really? Yup. Here it is.

Someone must have been awfully hungry to be this cranky. As reported in a news release from the Sarasota County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office:

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Sarasota man for threatening another driver with a gun in the drive-thru of the McDonald’s at 3828 Bee Ridge Road.

Restaurant employees called 911 at 2:47 p.m., Thursday, to report that a man in a white Mercedes sedan had just driven off after threatening to kill the driver of a brown car and aiming a gun at him during heated exchange. Witnesses say the suspect, who was identified as John Widmann III, DOB 12/4/56, 5120 Flicker Field Circle, was apparently upset about how the man pulled into the drive-thru lane. During Widmann’s tirade, he also pointed his gun toward a McDonald’s employee with a group of juveniles nearby.

Deputies stopped Widmann’s vehicle near Beneva Road and Gulf Gate Drive and took him into custody without incident. Deputies located a .38 caliber revolver and ammunition on the passenger seat.

Widmann is charged with Aggravated Assault and Improper Exhibition of a Firearm.

english%20Judge.jpg You are Sheikh Khalid Ben Abdfullah Rashid Alfawaz, you’re rich, and you’re getting a divorce in an English court. During a Hearing, here are some of the judge’s comments:

That the sheikh could choose “to depart on his flying carpet” to escape paying costs.

That the sheikh should be available to attend hearings “at this relatively fast-free time of the year.”

That he should be in court so that “every grain of sand is sifted.”

And the sheikh’s evidence was “a bit gelatinous . . . like Turkish Delight.”

What a card! The Sheikh was not amused. He asked the judge to recuse himself due to bias. When the judge refused, the Sheikh appealed and … won. He was booted from the case, and had to apologize. Not to worry, though. Lord Justice Ward threw him a bone.

No little part of my embarrassment comes from my belief that the injection of a little humour lightens the load of high emotion that so often attends litigation and I am the very last judge to criticise laughter in court. For my part I am totally convinced that [the judge’s] jokes were not meant to be racist and I unreservedly acquit the judge of any suggestion they were so intended.

Shazam! Next time I do something stupid, I want Lord Ward speaking on my behalf!
