cans beer

You may like shopping at Walmart. You may like working there, or you may have no choice but to work there. But if you think they give a damn about their employees, spend 30 minutes on the internet and you’ll learn otherwise.  The Juice can understand an employee doing something unwise to try to protect his benevolent boss’s business. This clearly doesn’t fit in that category. As reported by wftv.com:

A Walmart manager had an unexpected ride down a Florida Interstate in the back of a truck after he tried to stop a man and woman he suspected of shoplifting beer late Monday afternoon.

First mistake: chasing someone down for beer! What if they turned around and shot him? It’s just beer!

The manager, Mike Dawson, said he noticed the pair leaving the Titusville, Fla., store with a shopping cart containing beer. He said when he asked for a receipt, the two headed for their truck.

“I had asked them for a receipt and they kept throwing beers into their car,” said Dawson.

As the two began to back up and leave the parking lot, Dawson said he was forced to jump into the back of the truck.

Forced?

“I ran up to get their license plate, but when I realized how close I was, I jumped in the back so they didn’t run me over, ” Dawson said.

Doh!

The truck traveled along several streets and at high speeds down I-95. Dawson said the two stopped the truck twice.

“One time they tried to beat me up and I lost my glasses. The second time was in the back woods somewhere, I was like, ‘I’m not getting out for you to run me over,'” said Dawson.

So how did he escape?

Dawson said he used the only thing he could to try to get someone’s attention – the stolen beer.

“I kept throwing beers from the back of the truck, not at people’s cars but towards people’s cars, hoping that someone would call the police,” said Dawson.

Enter our hero.

Witness Dave Stewart said he saw the truck turn down a remote road in Brevard County, Fla. “Well, I just saw all the beers alongside the road,” said Stewart.

Stewart said as he caught up to the truck, it stopped. He said he had his gun on his hip, ready to use. He told the driver of the truck that he had called the sheriff.

“The gentleman in the back got out, and as soon as he did, the other guy jumps into the pickup truck and just leaves,” said Stewart.

So the pursuit of some stolen beer could have turned into a shootout…

Dawson said the man who stole the beer had a tattoo on his chest that read either 1987 or 1997. The pickup truck was blue with LH as the first letters on the license plate.

Investigators are still looking for the pair. They said they are checking to see if they are the same couple believed to have stolen beer from a Palm Bay, Fla., Walmart recently.

Still, nobody got the full license plate! Here’s the source, with a video news story.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Juice has come across some strange fetishes in his thousands of posts over the years. This may be the strangest yet, as reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Mayfair Town Watch reported yesterday on its Facebook page that the “Swiss Cheese Pervert” has been terrorizing neighborhood women.

Yes, you read that correctly.

According to the group, the suspect, a heavyset white man estimated to be in his late 40s or early 50s, approaches women while driving a silver or black sedan with his genitals exposed. He then displays a piece of sliced Swiss cheese and offers to pay the women to put the cheese on his penis and perform sexual acts on him using it.

All together now: Ewwwwww!

“I understand that people may think this is funny, but this is no laughing matter,” said Milt Martelack, the town watch’s senior adviser. “We’ve had a couple individuals reach out to us. We’re taking this matter very seriously, and we’re working vigorously with police to get this guy off the streets.”

A police source yesterday confirmed that the Special Victims Unit is investigating the man after several women from the Mayfair area filed reports describing similar encounters with a man displaying what the source called a “major sexual cheese fetish.”

Hmmm. This sounds familiar …

And although news of the bizarre case shocked many Mayfair residents, Gabby Chest – who lives in nearby Bridesburg – recognized the behavioral pattern instantly.

In July 2012, Chest, then 19 and having just broken up with her boyfriend, created a profile on the dating website OkCupid.

Within days, she said, she was contacted by a “really strange guy,” who sent her a private message that detailed a very specific request.

“He said he was looking for someone to perform masturbation on him with cheese,” Chest said. “He kept saying how strong his urges were and how desperate he was to find someone to help him with them.”

An excerpt from that message, which Chest sent the Daily News, details the origin of the man’s self-described “fetish.”

“I started to compare girls to cheese due to their milky complections [sic], girls are soft, smooth feeling and tend to like dairy products more,” he wrote.

“That and typical advertising, always using a girl to advertise dairy products. So cheese is what I started to use as a replacement for having sex with girls.”

It’s not surprising, then, that Chest recognized the man who had contacted her as the “Swiss Cheese Pervert” as soon as she saw his picture on the Mayfair Town Watch’s Facebook page.

“There’s no doubt it was him; it looked exactly like the picture on his profile,” she said. “I was scared and shocked. I never thought the guys you see on those sites would be so close to me.”

Yikes. You can read more here.

red light traffic

Following the law is important. This includes all of them, not just the traffic laws … As reported by The South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

Two Broward County traffic judges dismissed 24,000 pending red-light camera ticket cases Monday, ruling that the program violates Florida law.

Fines from those citations, which came from nearly every city in the county, would have amounted to more than $6.3 million, with each ticket at $264.

“We made the argument that the program was an improper delegation of police power because the videos were being sent out of state for employees of American Traffic Solutions to do the screening,” said Ted Hollander, an attorney with Ticket Clinic. He said the firm has challenged the program for more than four years on behalf of clients.

American Traffic Solutions, a vendor based in Arizona, reviewed videos captured by traffic cameras in Broward County before forwarding them to local police for ticketing. State law mandates that only law enforcement can issue violations.

Oops.  You’ll find the source, and more on this story, here.

facebook

You lose varying amounts of privacy by being on Facebook, but you can lose a lot more. Just ask this gent.  As reported by The Daily News (Galveston County):

Police say a man’s Facebook posts led to his arrest for allegedly stealing an SUV valued at $38,000.

Doh!  Exactly what breadcrumbs did they follow, you might wonder?

An employee at Texas Direct Auto in Stafford reported the stolen 2011 Infiniti QX5 on Friday morning, police said.

The employee, who knew the suspect, told officers the man’s Facebook posts showed the stolen vehicle’s keys, police said. The posts also tagged his location in League City at UTMB Health Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes in the 2200 block of Gulf Freeway. Officers arrested him at the clinic.

And you thought nobody paid attention to your location!

Christopher Andrew Lee, 29, of Wharton, is charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

He was being held in Galveston County jail on $60,000 bond.

Here’s the source.

one hundred dollar bill

Have you seen a hundred dollar bill lately? You can’t just photocopy copy them. This gent went to a little more trouble than that, but not enough! As reported by stlouis.cbslocal.com:

A former Belleville resident is accused of passing fake $100 bills at St. Clair Square mall.

Fairview Heights Police say they arrested 29-year-old Corey Wilson of Chicago on three counts of forgery and delivering forged documents.

Officers say they recovered counterfeit bills from eight stores where Wilson paid for small purchases and got a large amount of change back.

Detectives found the bills were actually $5 notes that were washed and reprinted as hundreds.

A St. Clair County judge set Wilson’s bond at $50,000.

Strangely enough, the bond was posted in cash, all hundreds! (No, it wasn’t.)  Here’s the source, including a mug shot.

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.

infidelity cheating adultery

If France is on one end of the spectrum, Kuwait is at or near the other end when it comes to adultery. As reported by The Arab Times:

The Criminal Court sentenced a Kuwaiti man and a female compatriot to two years in jail with hard labor and immediate execution for committing adultery. It has been reported the husband of the woman told investigators his wife left the marital house and lived in a private apartment after having a quarrel with him. While he was monitoring her acts, he found out she spent the night in an apartment in a nearby building. He then suspected she was committing adultery and results of the investigation proved his suspicion true.

Two years! Hard labor!

lab laboratory

Yes, they did find it in a Walmart bathroom. What was it? Well, per fox59.com:

According to a Walmart spokesperson, an associate noticed a man walking through the store with a backpack just before 11:30 p.m. at the Walmart in the 1500 block of E. 29th St . The associate recognized the man, and said he had been in the store a number of times before to buy stuff related to making meth. The associate notified police who were already at Walmart. Police followed the man, and he went into the bathroom. A short time later, the man came out of the bathroom without the backpack.

Members of the Pendleton District Meth Suppression Team were called to the Walmart to investigate the suspicious backpack left in the restroom. When troopers arrived, they discovered the backpack had an active meth lab inside.

Alrighty then. Here’s the source.

wrong

Oh to be King, or in this case, Queen! Thoughts similar to this must have been going through this Judge’s mind on the day in question (and probably many other days too).  It’s likely that next time she will not give voice to those thoughts. As reported by thestate.com:

The Ohio Supreme Court says a judge shouldn’t have scolded jurors for issuing a verdict she believed to be wrong.

The court concluded Wednesday in a public reprimand that Franklin County Municipal Court Judge Amy Salerno violated a rule requiring judges to behave in ways to promote the judiciary’s integrity and impartiality. It says she also violated a rule barring judges from commenting on jury verdicts except in court orders or opinions.

Jurors in Salerno’s courtroom issued a not-guilty verdict in 2013 in a misdemeanor assault case. Several jurors complained to the court about how Salerno told them they “got this wrong.”

Salerno says she deserves the reprimand and regrets the comments. She says she’s learned from the mistake.

Um, er, uh, sorry. Here’s the source.

laundry drying clothes line

The word “locals” is used, which means that more than one person thought this item was an Isis flag. You’ll wonder about that too when you look at the picture (not the one above – the one at the link below). Anyway, as reported by thelocal.it:

Police were called to an apartment block in Porto Recanati, on Italy’s eastern coast, after locals raised the alarm that an Isis sympathizer may be within their midst.

The officers searched the building and questioned residents, but were unable to recover the mystery black cloth spotted hanging from a tree next to the apartment block.

On further investigation police discovered that the supposed propaganda tool was nothing more than a jacket, swept into the trees after being hung out to dry, Corriere della Sera reported on Wednesday.

You can see a picture of the jacket, and read a little more, here.
