A cautionary tale: If anyone offers you flakka, DON’T TAKE IT! As reported by clickorlando.com:

A Florida man believed to be high on flakka, a drug that authorities say is sweeping the state, attacked a Brevard police officer after twice being shocked with a Taser while he repeatedly saying he was God, according to officials.

Kenneth Crowder, 41, of Melbourne, was arrested Friday on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting with violence and assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer.

According to a Melbourne police report, Crowder was spotted by witnesses running naked through a Melbourne neighborhood, yelling that he was a god before committing a sexual act on a tree.

You can’t make this stuff up. As reported by Counter Current News, and found at MintPressNews.com:

His story quickly went viral after a rural Oregon man was slapped with fines for collecting rain water on his own property. But now, as of last Wednesday, Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and more than $1,500 in fines, all because he had three reservoirs on his own property, that he used to collect and use rainwater.

Harrington says he plans to appeal the conviction in the Jackson County Circuit Court. That conviction revolved around nine misdemeanor charges that come from a 1925 law. That archaic ordinance bans what state water managers called “illegal reservoirs.”

So often it’s the little things that trip up scofflaws. Take this case, where the gent was busted for a very, very minor offense, and then it kept getting worse. As reported by The Brooklyn Paper’s Police Blotter:

Police arrested an upstate man in Brooklyn Heights on drugs and weapons charges after transit officers stopped the alleged crook for hopping a turnstile on Thursday, according to a report.

A turnstile! That’s $2.75, or $3.00 at the most!

Officers arrested the 32-year-old Schenectady man for drug possession and unlawful possession of a firearm after they discovered several bags of crack-cocaine and marijuana along with a loaded six-shooter in his backpack, a report said.

The officers stopped man after they say he jumped a turnstile at the High Street station shortly before 8:30 pm.

As the cops searched him they found several small bags of crack-cocaine and marijuana in his front pocket, and a search of his backpack turned up a Smith and Wesson .38-caliber revolver loaded with six rounds, according to a report. A second search at the 84th Precinct station house turned up a larger bag of crack in his pants, police said.

He had just about everything on him but a fare card. Here’s the source.

Really, who says lawmakers don’t accomplish anything?  Check out this Indiana law:

Chapter 13. State Rifle

IC 1-2-13-1 – “Grouseland Rifle”

Sec. 1. The “Grouseland Rifle” made by Colonel John Small of
Vincennes, Indiana, between 1803 and 1812 is designated the official
rifle of the state of Indiana.

It probably even had bipartisan support!

What would you do if you had a sweet tooth, but no cashish to satisfy it? Hopefully not what this gent in Louisiana did. As reported by The Advocate:

The suspected “Brownie Bandit,” a burglar with a sweet tooth, was arrested after a more-than-two-week run pilfering a Gonzales bakery of its stocks of sugary baked goods and other treats, police said.

Officers caught Jamon J. Simoneaux, 18, 2228 S. Burnside Ave., Lot No. 133, Gonzales, inside Jumonville’s Bakery after business hours Thursday with a bag full of chocolate-frosted brownies, the Police Department reported in a news release Friday.

Sticky-fingered burglar caught red-handed?

Bakery owner Lynn Jumonville said he called police after repeated nighttime break-ins and the costs of fixing broken windows and cut window screens began to mount.

Jumonville said his bakers would make brownies and sugar cookies between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for the next day’s business, but the burglar would wait until the bakery closed for the night then break in around 8:30 p.m. or 9 p.m. to sample the sweets.

“We made them, and he would come in to help himself,” Jumonville said.

Police said Simoneaux confessed he was responsible for six burglaries and three additional attempted burglaries at Jumonville’s Bakery, all between Aug. 8 and Thursday.

barbecue sauce

Normally when a woman finds her husband appetizing, that would be a good thing, right? Not this time! Per The Palm Beach Post:

City police say a woman poured barbecue sauce on her husband and went after him with a knife in each hand Tuesday, according to an arrest report made public Wednesday.

Viven Palmer, 30, faces charges of battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting an officer. She was released late Tuesday from the Palm Beach County Jail on $5,000 bail.

On Tuesday morning, police were called to the 1300 block of West 37th Street, south of Silver Beach Road near Avenue O, where a 30-year-old man was waving and yelling from his front door, “Help, police!”

Officers say they heard a woman, later identified as Palmer, yelling from the home, but when she came outside, she refused to speak with them. Instead, she just put items into a parked car outside the home. Police noted to children, ages 4 and 9, were seen in a car, according to the report.

Though she refused to speak with police and told them to leave her home, her husband said the two were arguing about getting a divorce. He said things turned violent and his wife came after him, damaging property along the way. Police noted the home appeared to be ransacked in their report.

He said his wife ripped off his shirt, poured barbecue sauce on him and hit him. When he fought back, he realized she had grabbed butcher knives from the kitchen, so he ran outside.

Yikes! You’ll find the source, including Ms. Palmer’s mug shot, here.

3d illustration: Equipment protection. Concept Cameras

Everyone knows that, with each passing day, more surveillance cameras go up pretty much all over the place. One would think police officers are well aware of this since they often use surveillance footage in their investigations. One would appear to be wrong, at least as far as this officer goes. As reported by abc7.com:

It was an NYPD raid to crack down on the illegal selling of untaxed cigarettes, but the manager of a Brooklyn deli says the day after police raided his store, he discovered that he had been robbed.

Now, he’s accusing one of the detectives, and he has surveillance video as proof.

The plainclothes detectives entered the Bedford-Stuyvesant deli last Friday night and immediately arrested two workers for selling loose cigarettes. The store’s elaborate 12-camera security system captured every second of the police raid.

One day later, deli manager Ali Abdullah noticed nearly $3,000 in store rent money missing from a box he kept hidden under the counter.

“I was thinking it was robbery, because I never seen the video,” he said.

He thought maybe one of his workers stole the cash, so he looked at the surveillance video and was stunned when he saw detectives had found the box during the raid. He says the video clearly shows one of the detectives grabbing the stack of money, hiding behind the counter door and out of view of his supervisor, before putting what appears to be the money in his coat pocket.

“When I come and look at my security system, I see this officer took the money and put it in his own pocket,” he said. “It’s crazy.”

The NYPD Internal Affairs viewed the surveillance video after WABC-TV, our sister station in New York, started asking questions. An NYPD spokesman now says one detective has been suspended pending the outcome of a joint investigation between Internal Affairs and the District Attorney’s Office. The supervising sergeant during the raid has also been placed on modified duty.

You didn’t see any of the 12 cameras? Here’s the source.

“Hey buddy, I think you’ve had a few too many. Why don’t you let me drive you home?” That didn’t go over so well. As reported by The New Hampshire Union Leader:

A Raymond man was arrested early Friday after hitting a friend in the parking lot of the Raymond American Legion with his vehicle and fleeing the scene, police said.

Edward Miller, 56, was charged with driving under the influence of liquor and conduct after an accident, police said.

The victim, who police found on the ground in the parking lot on Harriman Hill Road, told officers that Miller, his friend, fled the scene shortly before 12:30 a.m. Friday. The victim was taken to Exeter Hospital to be treated for what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said Miller allegedly attempted to leave the American Legion after consuming alcoholic beverages when he struck the victim’s vehicle, which was legally parked and unoccupied at the time. The victim had left the American Legion hall to try to stop Miller but was struck by Miller’s vehicle in the process, police said. Miller then fled, according to authorities.

Officers arrested Miller at his home, police said. …

Warning: Not safe if you are about to eat.  There are some things you just don’t do in public.  This is damn near the top of the list. As reported by The Daily Mail:

London Midland has vowed to give police CCTV images of a ‘disgusting’ passenger suspected of defecating inside a train carriage as it traveled through the Birmingham area.

The passenger who made the awful discovery said the smell was so bad that it forced the operator to cancel the service from Lichfield Trent Valley to Longbridge.

It plunged commuters into hours of misery as the act of vandalism on the Cross City line caused severe delays.

You have to feel sorry for the cop who has to watch the video footage to ID the guy. Here’s the source.
