Times are tough. Some folks can’t even pay their electric bill. Reuters reports the case of man who went about getting his juice in an unusual and very dangerous way.

The 36-year old man from Sibbesse in Lower Saxony concocted the plan to steal electricity after the power company cut him off for failure to pay his bills, police said.

How did he steal the juice?

The man attached a cable to the meat hook and tossed it onto an overhead power line. He then drew power from the transmission line to his home, located about 150 meters away.

Yikes.

“I’ve never seen anything like this in my 34-year-career,” said Friedrich-Wilhelm Lach, chief executive of regional utility Ueberlandwerke Leinetal GmbH, told Reuters. “It’s incredibly dangerous and utterly stupid.”

Man goes to Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Pennsylvania. Man plays slots. Man wins $2,001 jackpot. Man can’t keep the jackpot? Nope. And here’s why, per the Erie Times News:

The man, 55, had banned himself from the state’s casinos under a Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board self-help program.

What does this mean?

Not only does he forfeit his winnings, but he will be facing a summary criminal trespass charge.

Injury, meet insult. (adding insult to injury …)

The gaming board, which regulates the state’s casino industry, offers the self-exclusion program for people who know they need help. Those who sign up decide whether they want to ban themselves for one or five years, or for life.

The Waterford man gambled at the casino Friday, between 10 a.m. and noon, police said. He had signed up for the self-exclusion program in April 2009, police said.

It’s a popular program.

The man is one of 1,351 people across the state, including others from the Erie area, who are currently enrolled in the PGCB’s self-exclusion program. The total number has grown steadily each year, from 185 at the end of 2007.

How about having the winnings go to a charity? It seems to be a win-win situation for the casinos. They get the money, and don’t have to pay the jackpot. Or … do they? The Juice has learned that the money goes to a compulsive and problem gambler treatment fund.

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!

Sadly, this is not The Juice’s first report on crimes of this ilk. Click here for a recent story, and here for another. The most recent report comes from news.scotsman.com.

A pensioner has been sent to prison for having sex with a horse and a donkey.

Joseph Squires was sentenced to a total of 22 months, a Leicester Crown Court official confirmed today.

He previously pleaded guilty to buggery of a donkey between February 2 and February 5 1999, and buggery with a horse between March 15 and 18 2004.

Squires, whose address was previously given as Overpark Avenue, Leicester, also admitted charges of damaging property – relating to the two animals on the same dates.

Yikes.

Think about this story next time you kiss your girlfriend/boyfriend in public. From the Arab Times:

Police arrested a Kuwaiti youth and his compatriot girlfriend [in Kuwait City] for consuming alcohol and behaving indecently while swimming opposite Al-Sha’ab Al-Bahari, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. 
Police rushed to the site after receiving information that a girl and her boyfriend were kissing while swimming together. The girl was reportedly wearing a bikini and police smelt alcohol in their breath.

Ojai, California’s loss is Ashland, Oregon’s gain? Ms. Jennifer Moss, as reported by The Oregonian …

…often pedaled a bicycle around Ojai in a hemp G-string and flower-shaped pasties to promote Earth-friendliness.

Live and let live, right?

Her most recent misdemeanor arrest was for removing everything but her G-string and pasties in front of parishioners leaving an Easter Sunday Mass outside a Catholic church in Ojai. Stunned parishioners thought she was naked, police said.

So that’s why she left? Not really.

“Police attention was part of the reason I left …But the number one reason I left Ojai is they are not conscious enough about the air, the soil and the water. Either you get it or you don’t.”

How are things working out in Ashland?

Moss said she confirmed with police that Ashland’s laws do not prohibit public nudity. She celebrated by stripping off all of her clothes and doing a headstand right outside the police station. Then she rode her bike naked through the center of Ashland.

Here’s the source.

save%20soul.jpg

If you believe your soul needs saving, how would you go about doing it? Probably not the way Shafiq Mohamed did. As reported by www.wafb.com:

A man was arrested early Thursday morning after police responded to a complaint and found him walking down the street completely naked.

According to the Thibodaux [Louisiana] Police Department, Shafiq Mohamed was charged with obscenity after they saw him walking in the 2200 block of Audubon Avenue without any clothes on just before 2 a.m.

Officers said Mohamed told them … “God told him to walk the streets naked to save his soul.”

Can you just imagine how much money a college could take in if it could collect $25 from students for public cursing (and $50 for a second offense)? My guess is … a lot. And yes, there really is a college that has such a policy on the books. That school is Hinds Community College in Mississippi. The fines can be doled out for “public profanity, cursing and vulgarity” as reported at www.insidehighered.com. Here’s the skinny on the alleged f-bomber:

And the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has taken up the case of a student who faced charges following an incident in which — after class, but in the presence of an instructor — he said that a grade he had just received was “going to fuck up my entire G.P.A.” The instructor first threatened to place the student in detention and when the student pointed out (correctly) that the college doesn’t have detention, the “flagrant disrespect” charges were made.

Detention? Hilarious. Why not a “time out” for the young man? Regular Juice readers know that this policy is going down. See, there’s this document out there called the Constitution (note to school: See Amendment 1). You can read more – a lot – here.

streakers%20streaking.jpg

Yes sir. These streakers were in for a real surprise when they ran into a police officer while streaking through a neighborhood in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. And they got what was coming to them, which was … nothing! As it should have been with this truly victimless crime. Per The Union Leader:

In a scene reminiscent of Will Ferrell’s run through the neighborhood au naturel in the movie “Old School,” a Greenland police officer working a construction detail on Bartlett Street early Monday morning got a surprise when a naked woman ran by him.

Portsmouth police responded around 3:30 a.m., and found a man also out and about without any clothes on. The pair said they were playing strip poker with friends and, as part of losing, had to run around the block in the buff.

When police brought the two back to retrieve their clothes, they found two other people in various stages of undress. The streakers got off with a warning.

Sanity! Here’s the source.

Keep in mind that this is the same town, Kure Beach, North Carolina, that outlawed thong bathing suits. Anyway, way back when (way pre-thong), someone must have been playing the piccolo really loud. Why would the Juice hazard this guess? This is from the Kure Beach nuisance laws:

Sec. 11-31. Certain noises prohibited.

(a) The creation and continuation of any loud, disturbing and unnecessary noises in the town is hereby prohibited…

(b) The following acts, among others, are declared to be loud, disturbing, annoying and unnecessary noises in violation of this section …

(2) Radios, phonographs, etc. The playing of any radio, phonograph, piccolo or any musical instrument in such manner or with such volume as to annoy or disturb any person, or disturb the quiet, comfort or repose of any person in any dwelling, hotel or other residence. (emphasis added)

Picking on the piccolo? Not cool. Here’s the source. (Click on Chapter 11, then Article III.)
