A tv? If you’re wondering how this is possible, so is The Juice. As reported by WCCO (Minneapolis):

The officer then saw in plain view that King had a large item wrapped in plastic and stuffed down his pants. It was a 19-inch flat screen television. King also had other items in his pants, including a media player television remote, power cords, a bottle of brake fluid and two Xanax pills, a Schedule IV controlled substance.

Shazam! You can read more, and see a photo of the perp here.

Incredibly it can, and did. Mind you that this happened in Australia, where the loser pays the other side’s court costs. Still … How did it all start? As reported by The Cairns Post:

A fixed radar on a police car clocked [Steven Edward ] Osgood [54] driving at 93km/h in an 80km/h zone on the Kennedy Highway near Kuranda in June, 2006. Osgood contested the charge, saying the radar’s accuracy was in doubt because the police car was coming over the crest of a hill and around a bend.

Noooooooooooo. Couldn’t just pay the $250 [AUS] ticket.

A trial was held in Cairns Magistrates’ Court over three days in January and February 2008, with both Osgood and police calling expert witnesses.

After hearing the evidence, a Cairns magistrate convicted him of speeding and fined him $250 as well as an additional $65 in court costs and $7209 in prosecution costs.

At this point, the thinking must have been “why quit now?”

Last year, Osgood lost an appeal against those costs in Cairns District Court and was ordered to pay another $1800.

Uncle? Nope.

Representing himself in court via video link in his final appeal bid yesterday, Osgood claimed there were shortcomings in the use of police radars and there would be huge ramifications if his appeal was successful.

In her written judgment, Judge White refused to grant leave to appeal and ordered Osgood to pay the respondent’s costs.

“No issue of public policy about the accuracy of the devices used by police to detect breaches of the speed limits on Queensland roads is raised on the evidence which would suggest that leave to appeal ought to be granted.”

That has GOT to hurt, to say nothing of the cash Mr. Osgood shelled out for his own experts. Here’s the source.

So he wanted to be the first kid on the block with an AK-47? Is there a problem? As reported by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (in Florida, of course):

On February 23, 2012, a detective with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 13 year- old for grand theft of a firearm. The suspect’s mother cleans houses in Hernando County as a source of income. On or about February 12, 2012, the suspect was assisting his mother with a residential cleaning in Spring Hill. While cleaning, the suspect proceeded to remove a rifle bag containing an AK-47 assault rifle, numerous rounds of ammunition, as well as several magazines. After a detective notified the suspect’s mother of the theft, she eventually located the rifle bag hidden in her son’s closet. The rifle was returned to the owner with all of its accessories intact. The suspect confessed to stealing the rifle, because he really liked it and knew that his mother would never buy him one. He advised that he had no other intentions for the rifle and denied committing any other crimes. The suspect was subsequently arrested for the felony theft and later transported to Ocala per the Department of Juvenile Justice. Detectives are in the process of contacting the mothers other clients to make sure the suspect did not take any other items. As of this date, no other crimes have been reported involving this suspect.

“This is a situation that could have ended in tragedy,” said Sheriff Al Nienhuis. “Recently in the Tampa Bay area, there have been several incidents that have involved guns and accidental shootings that have ended in the death of, or serious injury of, innocent victims. I would like to take this opportunity to remind homeowners, whether you have children or not, to please make sure your firearms are properly secured, especially when others will be entering your home.”

rollator%20walker%20rollatorrs%20walkers.gif

That older man over there, do you know what he used to do? He looks vulnerable, but … A couple of young men learned that a certain 62-year-old still has it. As reported by TheLocal.se:

Gray-haired and requiring the use of a rollator to get around, Rolf Klasson certainly didn’t give the impression that he would put up a fight when two young men approached him on Tuesday in central Lidköping.

Klasson was about to take out money from a cash machine when one of the hoodlums demanded the elderly gentlemen give up his wallet, while the other brandished a knife, the local Nya-Lidköpings Tidning (NLT) reported.

What Klasson’s attackers didn’t know was that their seemingly helpless victim was a retired professional boxer who had once been a sparring partner for Bo ‘Bosse’ Högberg, who held the European light-middleweight boxing title in 1966.

“I said to them, ‘this isn’t going to go well’,” he told the Expressen newspaper.

That is classic. Definitely the line for that moment.

But the two young men simply scoffed at the old man’s warning, something they would soon regret.

Before the pair of cocky thugs knew what had happened, Klasson knocked the knife-wielding thief to the ground with a right hook.

“Then I laid out the other with a left jab,” he told Expressen.

Both men fled the scene, still in shock at having been decked by a man who was likely more than twice their age and required assistance to get around town.

What did the authorities think about Mr. Klasson’s handiwork?

Margita Johansson of the Lidköping police praised the former boxer for his efforts.

“It was well done. One does have the right to defend oneself,” she told NLT.

As if right on cue, said Mr. Klasson:

“They came after the wrong guy.”

Well done sir.

gun%20robbery%20robber%20stickup%20stick-up.jpg

It may not be the oldest trick in the book, but it’s on the list. As reported by The Florida Times-Union (jacksonville.com):

Jacksonville police are looking to find a man who attempted to rob a Gate gas station on 103rd Street Monday morning.

About 3 a.m., a man with a plastic bag over his head walked behind the counter and ordered the clerk to “open the register and give me all the money,” according to a report from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

The man had a pointed object protruding from his shirt.

About that pointed object …

… the clerk immediately realized it was the man’s finger and said, “I’m not giving you anything,” according to the report.

Time to cut your losses? Not quite.

The would-be robber then turned his attention to a customer.

He told the customer to give up all of his money and, “[t]he customer laughed at the suspect,” according to the report.

The suspect was last seen heading northbound on foot from the business at 7023 103rd St.

It’s good when high school students do odd jobs to earn a little extra money, right? This story might make you change your mind, or at least ask what the “jobs” are. As reported by ktla.com:

Charles Hersel was arrested in 2009 during a sting operation at a Thousand Oaks mall.

Westlake High School students said Hersel paid them to yell profanities, spit and slap his face, according to officials.

Several students also said he offered them cash to urinate and defecate on him, Ventura County sheriff’s detectives said.

It was a “sting” so …

Hersel was charged with four counts of annoying and molesting a child.

Mr. Hersel fought the charges. His defense?

During the trial Hersel’s lawyer, Ron Bamieh, admitted the 41-year old paid more than a dozen teenagers to do those acts, but said the acts were not for sexual gratification.

What did the jury think?

Last week, jurors acquitted Hersel of all charges.

Had he lost?

He was facing a year in jail and would have been required to register as a sex offender.

Good things come to those who wait? So maybe that wouldn’t have been the case here, since our perp was waiting in line at the KFC/Taco Bell drive-through… Still, patience is a virtue. Impatience, at least when manifested this way, is criminal. As reported by tampabay.com:

Jennifer Lynn Betterly was angry at how long the woman in front of her was taking to order food in the drive-through lane Saturday evening.

Sure. It happens.

So after screaming at her, police said, Betterly repeatedly rammed her Ford Focus into the woman’s car, then drove off.

Yikes.

Betterly, 24, was arrested at 6:45 p.m. Saturday, about an hour after the incident at the KFC/Taco Bell at 1648 Missouri Ave. S, according to an arrest report. She was driving with a suspended license, and police found a prescription pill bottle containing a single pill of the sleep aid Ambien. The label was torn, and she was unable to prove the pill was prescribed for her, according to the report.

The charges?

Betterly faces felony charges of aggravated battery and possession of a controlled substance, in addition to misdemeanor charges of driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash.

Crazy, right? It’s not like she was at Wendy’s …

The Juice understands that sometimes it’s hard to just walk away. This was NOT one of those times… As reported by ObserverToday.com (New York):

Maria K. Sams, 18, of McDonough Street, Dunkirk was charged with second-degree harassment and littering on Feb. 11. Police responded to a fight at McDonald’s but the fight had broken up before police had arrived. When asked to leave the restaurant, Sams threw down a paper cup while walking away. When being arrested for littering, she became resistant and combative kicking an officer in the face. She was released on $100 bail.

When some folks are ready for supper, there’s just no telling what they’ll do if it’s not ready. What this fella allegedly did will make it very difficult for his wife to prepare dinner for him, at least in the near future. From the Charleston (West Virginia) Daily Mail:

A Sissonville man who was upset that dinner wasn’t ready set fire to his home Sunday, according to the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputy A.J. Miller responded to 19452 Derrick’s Creek Road just before midnight after Beverly Jones called to report that her husband, Guy, 60, had started the fire.

Jones said her husband returned home after drinking and was upset because she didn’t have dinner on the table. After an argument, Jones fled to a neighbor’s home. She told deputies she saw flames coming from the basement and her husband exiting the basement door.

Miller said the home was engulfed in flames when he arrived. Jones was arrested and charged with first-degree arson. He was taken to South Central Regional Jail.

Zoinks!

So this 78-year-old woman thinks her 84-year-old husband had an affair 35 years ago. What did she do? As reported by The Daily Herald:

The woman allegedly told police she pushed her husband down and hit him with a bowl and a metal pipe. Investigators recovered the woman’s diary in which she allegedly wrote, “I beat him again.” The diary described how she hit her husband with a carpet sweeper and went after him with a knife. The diary entry also stated that “I told him it would be worth going to jail just to watch him bleed to death,” [Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Valerie] Shapiro wrote.

A witness told police the woman admitted that she had kicked her husband three times in the groin over the last six months because she believed he’d had an affair 35 years ago, according to court documents.

Damn! His injuries?

The man suffered several broken ribs, a shattered pelvis and a fractured wrist, … Shapiro wrote in court documents.

The woman was charged with assault.
