It’s so easy, in the comfort of your own home, or sitting there in your ergonomic office chair, to say that you wouldn’t have reacted as this Houston woman did. But can you really know with certainty? Exactly. As reported by khou.com:

According to officers with the Houston Police Department, the woman got upset over her drink at a McDonald’s restaurant, caused a disturbance, and then sped off [and allegedly led police on high-speed chase.]  Police said they spotted her older Mercedes with an expired sticker, and they tried to pull her over.

Okay, so perhaps she overreacted a little.

They eventually used spike strips to flatten her tires. She came to a stop on Hillcroft near Richmond.

Yikes. So what happened to her?

Police said the woman would be charged with resisting arrest. [She was taken to jail.]

Here’s the source, including a photo of the unhappy customer.

All parents get mad at their kids. But this? From the Broadview Heights Police Blotter, as reported by the Sun Star Courier at cleveland.com:

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, EAST ROYALTON ROAD: At 6:19 p.m. Thursday, a patrolman went to Marymount South Medical Center for a report of domestic violence.

A 17-year-old girl told the officer she and her mother have not been getting along lately. [A major understatement, as you will soon see.] She said she had just had surgery and is staying at home to recover. She said her mother came into her room and they started arguing.

Allegedly, her mother took her cell phone and the two began to wrestle. The mother reportedly spit in her face, pushed her to the ground and started hitting her, causing her head to bleed.

A 21-year-old sister came into the room and allegedly used her body to separate her sister and mother. Her 17-year-old sister claimed their mother spat in her sister’s face and threw a cat at her before leaving the room.

The 17-year-old eventually locked her mother out of the house and called the police. Her friend’s parents came and picked her up and transported her to the medical center.

The mother is charged with domestic violence. The 17-year-old daughter requested a motion for a temporary protection order.

Threw a cat at her!!! Shazam!

bride and groom

People get cold feet all the time, and there are several ways to deal with it. You probably haven’t thought of this one, as reported by The Daily Mail:

A fiancé faked his own death by telephoning his partner and pretending to be his father breaking the bad news – so he could get out of his approaching wedding day, it was revealed today.

Wow. A real gentleman this one.

Bride-to-be Alex Lanchester, 23, of Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, received a phone call just months before her wedding claiming that Tucker Blandford, also 23, of Stamford, Connecticut, had died in a car accident.

She then rang the American’s parents to offer her condolences, but they told her he was alive and well – and Miss Lanchester quickly learned he had faked his death to avoid the wedding.

As criminal schemes go, this actually isn’t a bad one. So no slamming the victim today. As reported by per NJ.com:

According to Montclair Detective Lt. David O’Dowd, the “diversion-style” burglary hit a Fairview Place home at about 2 p.m. on August 8 when a man wearing beige work clothes and carrying a portable radio rang the doorbell.

It begins …

The man told the homeowner he was working on a water issue in the area, and she let him in to test some of her faucets, police said. After running the water, he led the woman outside to a garden hose, where the two stood for about 30 minutes, police said.

When a voice through the radio said “we’re good to go,” the man left through the yard, police said. When the woman went back inside, police said she found the house ransacked, and $1,000 in cash stolen.

Good to go! And what about the perps?

Police described the suspect who distracted the woman as a 5-feet-10-inch tall white man with brown hair in his 30s. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective L. McCarthy at 973-509-4725.

twitter tweeter

Everyone has heard the old saying about real estate – location, location, location. If you didn’t think that this applies to tweeting, you will now. As reported by The Arab Times:

The Misdemeanor Court sentenced a Twitter user to two months in prison with hard labor and temporary compensation for insulting a poet. Attorney Hussein Al-Asfour, lawyer for the plaintiff, pointed out in court that the accused tweeted statements deemed offensive to the poet; especially since the tweets were about the latter’s personal life. The accused posted the offensive tweets again after the plaintiff announced his plan to contest the parliamentary elections. During investigations, the defendant refuted the allegation that he tweeted the offensive statements; claiming another person used his account. However, when the complaint was referred to the Electronic Crimes Department, it was found out the accused owns the account and he posted the insulting statements repeatedly. Taking these circumstances into consideration, Al-Asfour asked the court to impose the harshest penalty on the accused.

Yikes.

Oh true love. The lengths people will go to. This is a new one on The Juice, and that’s saying something after doing this every day for so many years. As reported by ktvu.com:

A woman in Texas told police she stole a bottle of cheap wine from a gas station so she could get arrested and see her boyfriend in the Williamson County Jail, according to a warrant.

Brilliant!

Alicia Walicke, 22, was charged with theft. Police found her Wednesday next to a Shell gas station drinking a $3.99 bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 she had just stolen from the station, the warrant said.

“Walicke advised her boyfriend was arrested earlier that evening by Cedar Park Officers and it was her fault so she wanted to make things right and go to jail,” according to the warrant.

Two things: That’s the best thing you could come up with? And Mad Dog? (If you’ve never had it, keep it that way!)

Walicke was released from the Williamson County Jail Friday after posting bond on bail set at $5,000, according to court records.

How is it possible for a 32-year-old man to get busted for underage drinking? Here’s how: Commit the crime [allegedly] when you are underage, then let a few years go by. Doh! As reported by The Hunterdon County Democrat (New Jersey):

Patrolman Tim McGuire stopped on Route 513 by the Route 78 interchange to help with a disabled vehicle Monday around 7:30 p.m.

Ummm … Thanks Officer, but I’m good?

A computer check on the license of driver Philip Rowles, of Ridley Park, Pa., turned up two arrest warrants issued by Camden City Municipal Court and Woolwich Joint Court in Gloucester County, police said. One warrant was for failing to appear on a previous traffic summons for driving without insurance, the other for possession of alcohol by a person while under the legal age.

Once again reinforcing the notion that, if you just ignore your troubles, they’ll go away! Poof! Here’s the source.

cell phone

So the cops caught these guys with a cell phone they had already thrown away? How’s that possible? Well, as reported by the Volusia County [Florida] Sheriff’s Office:

A 66-year-old woman had gone to the store Saturday afternoon and when she returned to her Saxon Boulevard home she discovered that someone had smashed a back window and gotten inside. When deputies responded, jewelry, a laptop computer and a cell phone were discovered missing. The victim used a cell phone locator service to get the general area the phone was in.

How did the police get from the “general area” of the phone to the perps?

After calling the phone several times, it was finally found ringing in a garbage can in front of a Baton Drive house at about 11:47 p.m. Deputies then looked around for any other evidence.

Voices coming from the yard on one side of the house led a deputy to two men hiding behind a tree: 20-year-old Gabriel Hidalgo and 21-year-old Heriberto Hidalgo. Both men initially made up stories about what they were doing in the area, but once stolen jewelry and a handgun were found on them they admitted to the home burglaries. The jewelry they had came from the Saxon Boulevard break-in and two handguns were traced back to a Friday burglary on Tivoli Drive.

Doh! Not only did they leave the phone on, they tossed it in a garbage can right where they were! [Their house?]

Both Deltona men were charged with carrying a concealed weapon, loitering/prowling, burglary, armed burglary, three counts of grand theft and criminal mischief. Heriberto Hidalgo was also charged with giving false identification to law enforcement and possession of narcotics paraphernalia. He also had a Seminole County arrest warrant for failure to appear.

laptop computer

Who burgles a joint and leaves a perfectly good laptop behind? And in case you’re wondering, it was out in the open, as you will soon see. As reported by tcpalm.com:

In a case police are calling unique, a homeowner used his laptop computer video camera to capture a photo of a suspect breaking into his home.

Boom!

The homeowner left the computer on while he was gone. The footage led to the arrest of a friend, a 28-year-old man the homeowner has known since they were roommates in college, according to a sheriff’s report.

Former “friend,” that is.

Normally, investigators end up with just footprints or fingerprints and are left wondering if those prints are linked to a crime. This time, they had a visual recording of the incident and the homeowner’s identification of the person led to the arrest of Eric Rayburn, 28, of the 1900 block of Southeast Bellevue Avenue, Port St. Lucie.

Rayburn voluntarily came in for questioning and deputies quoted him as saying he goes to the house all the time and was dropping by to talk.

Bet the cops enjoyed this next bit.

Then investigators showed him the camera recording.

Bam!

Rayburn, who said he works in medical supplies, told investigators he was delivering a Federal Express package. Investigators challenged that, saying there was no package in his hand in the video that was running at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 27, 2012.

Then he asked to talk to an attorney and stopped talking with deputies.

He is charged with burglary of a dwelling [a cash box was reported missing] and second degree theft.

Here’s the source.

As The Juice always says, if you don’t like what you’re looking at, look away! Per The Dutch Harbor Telegraph (Dutch Harbor, Alaska):

1312 – Assistance Rendered – Previously convicted assailant reported that since he returned to town, his victim has been giving him the stink-eye. An officer advised the assailant to simply avoid looking at the victim.

No, not the stink-eye! Run!
