How about some nice, relaxing rollerblading through the park? No? How about running over some little kids who are in the way? Perhaps I’m overstating it a bit. Here’s what happened, per the Stamford Advocate:
A 43-year-old Stamford in-line skater is charged with risk of injury to a minor and assault after an alleged confrontation with a father and his two sons over the right-of-way on a path in Cove Island Park Monday morning, police said.
Skater Chris Karamon, of 1307 Hope St., was charged with risk of injury to a minor, third-degree assault, fourth-degree criminal mischief, and breach of peace, according to Stamford Police Lt. Sean Cooney.
Shortly after 9 a.m. Monday, Karamon was skating down the path when he shouted and cursed at the father that his 4-year-old son on a tricycle was in a designated area for in-line skaters, police said.
“Mr. Karamon’s contention is that the 4-year-old was on the wrong side of the path,” Cooney said. “But the path is for use by everybody and we can’t have Rollerbladers or anybody cursing out people.”
A short while later, Karamon was approaching the family again and collided with the father who shielded his 4- and 2-year-old sons, Cooney said.
Karamon fell to the ground, and threw his helmet and water bottle at the father, police said.
Several bystanders called police, Cooney said, and another witness intervened to separate Karamon and the father. Karamon declined comment when contacted about the incident Tuesday morning.
Karamon was released on $10,000 bond, and is to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford on Oct. 13.
The Juice is thinking Mr. Karamon may not have any robots, er, kids …
This is how you [allegedly] treat your disabled wife? Per the Worcester, Massachusetts Telegram:
Wayne G. Prinsen, 50, of 5 Spring St., Spencer, was released on personal recognizance and ordered to stay away and have no contact with his wife in accordance with a restraining order. He was charged with assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (a shod foot), assault and battery on a disabled person and intimidation of a witness.
According to court documents, a family member called police Sept. 23, concerned that Mr. Prinsen had injured his wife. Police went to the home and found the alleged victim, who was upset.
Police said she told an officer that she had risen at 3:30 a.m. to make her husband’s lunch because she had not been feeling well the night before when she normally would have made him a sandwich. The woman suffers from fibromyalgia, an incurable disease that causes pain, sleeping problems, stiffness and headaches, according to the National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services.
She told police she was taking out peanut butter and jelly along with meat when Mr. Prinsen warned her that he would be leaving in 5 minutes. She told him the lunch would be ready and he responded by punching her in the stomach and kicking her, the report said. He also broke a telephone. She went upstairs and he left for work at a home improvement store in Shrewsbury.
Police wrote that the woman had “contusions” on her stomach and knee from the assault and they sought an arrest warrant for Mr. Prinsen.
He will be back in court for a pretrial hearing on Nov. 19.
Cold. Ice cold.
I like animals too, but this is nuts. As reported by The Daily Telegraph:
In one of Sydney’s weirdest crimes, a young woman has been accused of pulling a gun on a dog owner at their home in a brazen attempt to steal a Chihuahua puppy after posing as a would-be buyer.
A police spokesman said: “About 11.30am, the 26-year-old woman went to a house on Perkins Avenue at Kellyville after making an appointment to purchase a Chihuahua puppy.
“Once inside the home, the woman allegedly produced a firearm and demanded the puppy.
“The woman was then restrained and the firearm seized by the occupants, who included an off-duty policeman from The Hills Local Area Command.
“Police attended the house and the woman was arrested and taken to Castle Hill police station. The woman’s firearm was found to be a replica of a Glock pistol. She has been charged with robbery whilst armed and possession of a prohibited weapon and will appear at Parramatta Local Court on October 15.”

Who knew a couple mankinis would cause such a fuss? As reported by the BBC:
Two students who dressed up as the TV character Borat are at the centre of a row in Vietnam.
The pair performed a dance act at a company party dressed as the spoof Kazakh journalist in his notoriously skimpy “mankini” swimming costume.
They have now found themselves suspended from college for 12 months.
The incident, dubbed the “nude dance of FPT Arena students”, has stirred up a storm on internet forums and also in the domestic media.
The leading technology firm FPT owns the college where the two performers were studying design.
In a statement, FPT Arena said the organisers of the party did not know about the act in advance, adding that two of the firm’s executives had been sacked over the incident.
Hanoi Cultural Inspectorate on Tuesday fined the college 4m dong ($240; £135) for a number of offences including “use of improper clothing”.

I don’t think there’s any doubt that Anthony Vakeva’s bird-flipping days are over. In January 2005, Mr. Vakeva flipped off Mr. Blackwell at a red light. I’m guessing he would have thought twice about doing so had he known that Blackwell was a TRAINED AMATEUR BOXER (with a very short fuse.) It didn’t end when Blackwell sucker-punched Vakeva and kicked him in the head many times. After he was arrested and released on bail, Blackwell went and shot Vakeva! He was sentenced to …. 8 years.

Would you turn your kid into the police if you knew he was breaking the law? This mother answered “yes” as reported by The Sandusky Register:
A 16-year-old boy who used a page from his Bible as a rolling paper for a marijuana joint was charged with drug possession, an Erie County sheriff deputy’s report said.
The boy’s mother called deputies at about 11:35 p.m. Tuesday, asking them to meet her at a car wash on Ohio 101.
The mother said she saw her son smoking in his bedroom and found a small bag of marijuana in his night stand, the report said.
The mother told deputies her son “was smoking a marijuana cigarette using a page from his Bible,” the report said.
Oh my god! Did you hear that screaming out back? I’m going to call the police! What did the police find? As reported in the Northern Territory News:
Officers scrambled to respond to an emergency call from a woman who reported a possible attack when she heard someone “in distress” behind a fence about 6.30am.
But when police arrived they discovered what the resident had heard was, in fact, cries of passion.
They found a naked couple having sex on a mattress in a laneway backing on to the resident’s property on Gap Rd, Alice Springs.
Um, er, uh …
The officers did not charge the man and woman and asked them to move on.
Talk about ruining the mood …
Darn it! I went and gave it away, didn’t I? If I asked you to guess what some of the members of Polk County’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area task force were doing while their coworkers were executing a search warrant, you’d probably guess “playing a Wii” right? As reported by Florida’s News Channel 8:
With guns drawn and flashlights cutting through darkened rooms, Polk County undercover drug investigators stormed the home of convicted drug dealer Michael Difalco near Lakeland in March.
As investigators searched the home for drugs, some drug task force members found other ways to occupy their time. Within 20 minutes of entering Difalco’s house, some of the investigators found a Wii video bowling game and began bowling frame after frame.
While some detectives hauled out evidence such as flat screen televisions and shotguns, others threw strikes, gutter balls and worked on picking up spares.
A Polk County sheriff’s detective cataloging evidence repeatedly put down her work and picked up a Wii remote to bowl. When she hit two strikes in a row, she raised her arms above her head, jumping and kicking.
Now, you may be asking yourself “how did anyone find out about this?” The answer, loyal Juice readers, will surprise you:
… detectives with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the Auburndale, Lakeland and Winter Haven police departments did not know that a wireless security camera connected to a computer inside Difalco’s home was recording their activity.
So what’s the problem with a guy washing his pants at a laundromat? Um, he apparently didn’t have any other pants to wear … and was walking around bottomless. Per the Naples Daily News:
Arresting Deputy Jeffrey S. Magner reported making contact with [Mr. James T.] Lowe while he sat against the window of the laundromat at 6000 Radio Road, and states he was wearing a jean jacket around his waist, but no pants. However, the report notes, “it was not completely covering his genitalia. At this time, there were several adults and small children walking around the plaza and in and out of the coin-operated laundry.”
Exposed genitalia? Dude must have been high. Actually …
The report further states that Lowe appeared impaired, and had a plastic mug with a “Bud Light” logo on the ground next to him, filled with a partially-consumed substance that smelled like alcohol. While taking him into custody, the report states, deputies also found a baggie of white pills on Lowe, but were unable to identify them through poison control.
… indecent exposure in public, trespassing, having an open container of alcohol in a public area and resisting an officer without violence.
Here’s the source, including a photo of Mr. Lowe.
