fish

How could The Juice possibly know that people in Wyoming were fishing with guns? Well, do you think they would have passed a law prohibiting it if nobody was doing it? Exactly! Here’s the law:

23-3-201. Fishing tackle; designation of waters for setline fishing; taking fish with firearm prohibited; snagging; penalties.

… (d) No person shall take, wound or destroy any fish of Wyoming with a firearm of any kind or nature.

Very sporting, right? And so much fun! Here’s the source.

middle finger flip flipping bird

While many police officers in the United States will arrest you for flipping them off, the courts have consistently held that doing so is protected by the First Amendment. There is nothing offering one such protection in Dubai, as an Iranian woman found out. As reported by gulfnews.com:

A businesswoman was sentenced to a month in jail for flashing her middle finger at two policemen after dining out with friends in a five-star hotel.

They said she had been drinking too. Her defense?

N.I. pleaded innocent claiming that she bit her nails and scratched her finger due to a skin disease that she suffers from when the policemen “confusingly thought she flashed her finger in their face”

… and

The defendant claimed that she didn’t drink liquor and alleged that the food she had at the hotel was cooked in liquor.

Okay. Your evidence?

Sources close to the case told Gulf News that N.I. provided the court with a medical report confirming that she suffers from psoriasis.

The report said she remains under treatment because she suffers itchiness in her hands and legs.

And the prosecution?

Records said the policemen spotted N.I. jumping into the backseat of a car and flashed her middle finger in their face.

The policemen chased the vehicle that carried the defendant for two kilometres then asked the driver to follow them to the nearest police station.

N.I. was sent for examination. She tested positive for liquor.

Ma’am?

When asked about the findings, she said: “The liquor in my blood must have been there because the food at the hotel was cooked in liquor.”

What’s cooked is her goose. In addition to the 30 days in jail …

The court also fined N.I. Dh3,000 for consuming liquor and she will be deported after serving her term.

babushka souvenir

Sure, lots of folks pick up a few keepsakes when they’re on vacation. Maybe something to remind them of the fun they had on the trip. Well check out what this man picked up in Tibet, as reported by The Highline Times (Washington State):

A traveler was stopped at the Sea-Tac Airport by a dog that smelled something funny. Customs and Border Protection agriculture specialists contacted the man and he told them he had four yak skulls in his duffel bag. The traveler told the specialists he found two of the skulls while hiking in Tibet. He also bought two yak skulls at a village store to keep as souvenirs. Two of the skulls had dried flesh on them, which is what alerted a federal Beagle named Woody. An Agriculture program manager said the skulls were destroyed under high-pressure steam to prevent the introduction of animal diseases.

Nothing like a fleshy yak skull to start that stroll down memory lane.

police helicopter

You’re up in a police helicopter, looking down at 3 plants on a guy’s deck. Can you really identify them as marijuana? Really? That’s what they’re saying, as reported by The Times at nj.com:

Peter R. Taylor, 23, was allegedly growing the marijuana on the back deck of his home on the 100 block of Coachman Drive. The plants were spotted by the state police Marijuana Eradication Unit during a helicopter flight yesterday, officials said.
“He saw the helicopter and attempted to pull the plants and destroy them,” said Sgt. Gregory Williams, a State Police spokesman.

Florence police and the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office had received confidential information about the marijuana growing at Taylor’s house and initiated the joint investigation with the state police, officials said.

“Joint” investigation! Get it?

Law enforcement officers on the ground arrested him immediately after the team in the helicopter saw the plants, police said.
A search of the home revealed just over six ounces of processed marijuana valued at $1,800, Williams said. The three plants have a combined value of $6,000, according to the state police.

If they had information from a confidential informant, why not just get a search warrant? Why the flyover?

Taylor was charged with possession of marijuana, manufacturing drugs, and hindering apprehension by destroying evidence, Florence police said.
He was released after posting $25,000 full cash bail.

The Juice is not supporting burglary. But if you’re going to destroy property to steal property, shouldn’t you at least steal stuff that is worth more than the cost of the damage you did to break in? This gent abides by no such rule.

laser lasers

Sure, lasers are cool. Maybe point it on the floor and have your cat chase it around. Or just mess around with it inside. But whatever you, don’t do this! As reported by The Charleston Post and Courier:

A 33-year-old man will spend more than three years in federal prison after he admitted to shining a laser into the cockpit of two news helicopters.

3+ years! Sure the time is the worst thing, but what about the inevitable question: “So, what are you in for?”

Prosecutors said in a news release that Damien Conley pleaded guilty Tuesday to aiming a laser pointer at an aircraft and was sentenced to 37 months in prison.

Authorities say two news helicopters in the Upstate were flying over an interstate wreck in November 2013 when a laser was aimed into their cockpits. The pilots were able to maintain control.

Prosecutors say lasers can blind pilots or disorient them.

The specific federal law making it a crime to point a laser into an aircraft went into effect in 2013. It carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison.

Yikes. Here’s the source.

What, you doubt The Juice? Besides, who could make this stuff up? As reported at theguardian.com:

A man who taxied his light plane down a main street in Western Australia’s Pilbara region and parked it outside a pub is expected to be charged.

Say what?

Newman police sergeant Mark McKenzie said the plane had its propeller running, its wings removed and was being steered by foot pedals on Friday.

The man parked the plane outside the Newman Hotel and was then interviewed by police.

“It was a pretty stupid thing to do,” McKenzie said.

Stupid is right. Why would you take the wings off of a plane? (joking)

“Kids were coming home from school. It could have been very ugly. All he needed was one gust of wind … because without the wings, it’s not stable.

“People think it was a bit of a laugh but it was very dangerous and we’re not very happy with it.”

McKenzie said police had examined the Road Traffic Act but would likely charge the man under the Criminal Code.

“I would assume there would be an offence under the Criminal Code that may fit the bill.

“I’m confident that he will be charged with something soon.”

Really? You can’t come up with anything? This might be heartening to his defense lawyer should he decide to fight whatever he is eventually charged with. Here’s the source, including a photo of the plane.

squirrel squirrels

Come on. Zombies are so slow and easy to kill. But squirrels? Those little varmints are fast.  As reported at WashingtonPost.com

Ashburn [Virginia] , Partlow Road, Oct. 21. A caller reported that a squirrel was chasing and attacking children on a playground. An animal control officer observed the squirrel gather food and store it under a swing set. There was no sign of aggression. The officer told people there about wildlife hibernation habits.

Too much coffee? Too much TV? Too many shrooms? Anyway, here’s the source.

referee ref football

It’s often said that security guards are wannabe cops. Have you ever heard that said about refs? Me either. But check this out, as reported by wwl.com:

An apparent argument over crowd control between high school football referees and members of the Covington Police Department led to the arrest of two members of the officiating crew.

You probably saw that coming. So what happened?

The incident happened at the Mandeville-St. Paul’s game at about 8:45 Friday night.

St. Paul’s Athletic Director Craig Ketelson told WWL’s Deke Bellavia, who was broadcasting from the game, that an argument between two referees and police that were providing security became heated.

Ketelsen said, “I have never seen anything like this before.”

And you probably won’t again …

Covington Police Captain Jack West told Deke Bellavia what officers say happened in the incident:

“Well, a referee asked a police officer to move some people back.  The police officer moved them back.  Another referee came up to the police officer and told him, ‘that’s not far enough.’  The police officer explained….would you please handle the game, referee the game, and we will handle the crowd for you. The second referee told the police officer, nose-to-nose with the police officer, ‘you’re out of the game…get outta here.’  And the police officer said, ‘excuse me sir, just referee the game, and we’ll handle the crowd.’  And he says ‘no, get out.  Get out now.’

West went on to say, “There’s several witnesses that stepped forward who stepped forward to say that’s what happened. So, the two referees have been arrested for public intimidation.”

Yes, the refs actually thought their authority was greater than the police officers controlling the crowd.

angel

Why would your appearance require that you are always on your best behavior, or at least on the right side of the law? The answer will soon be abundantly clear.  As reported by The Northwest Florida Daily News:

Kenneth Dewain Parker was in an argument with a woman on Oct. 26, according to the arrest report. Parker was in an argument with the victim when he allegedly hit her in the face.

The victim also told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies that she had bruises on her arms where Parker “forcefully grabbed her,” the report said. A witness, who had called deputies, described Parker hitting the victim.

Parker was gone when deputies arrived, according to the report. An automatic alarm went off at 1:03 a.m. on Oct. 27 at Thumbs Up Food Store in Fort Walton Beach because the glass had been “shattered.”

There’s more, but it doesn’t sound too unusual, right? So why does Mr. Parker have to behave like an angel? You need to see his photo. You’ll find it, and the source, by clicking here.
