dui check point checkpoint dwi

If you’ve had a few, and you’re approaching a DUI check point, what would you do? The Juice can say with at least 99% certainty that you would not do what this man did. As reported by BeeNews.com (Western New York):

A vehicle entered a road check being conducted by the Buffalo Strike Force Detail on Lisbon Street. A Trooper observed that the operator was drinking a beer and that the vehicle had bald tires. The operator failed field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest for Driving While Intoxicated.

The dude was drinking a beer at a DUI check point! Shocking that he failed the field sobriety test …

crime

A Mississippi state legislator waisted little time in between talking about the crime problem in Jackson to becoming part of it. As reported by wapt.com:

Hours after state Sen. John Horhn hosted a meeting addressing crime problems in Jackson, he was arrested on a DUI charge, police confirmed.

Horhn had called a meeting at the State Capitol earlier in the evening and heard from Jackson residents about crime.

The gent called the meeting! It must not have gone too well.

Horhn was pulled over about 11:30 p.m. Thursday on Beasley Road in front of Callaway High School, a Jackson police official said.

Horhn was booked and released early Friday morning, authorities said. A court hearing is scheduled for Monday, officials said.

back-seat%20driver%20backseat.jpg

Let’s just say this lady does not take criticism well, especially when she’s behind the wheel. What did she do when her husband took exception to her driving? As reported by The Argus Leader (South Dakota):

A Sioux Falls woman tried to run down her husband with a Chrysler New Yorker Thursday night for questioning her driving skills, police say.

Shazam! You might be wondering about the logistics of running someone down for “backseat” driving. The Juice will explain.

The officer had responded to a report of a dispute in the street near the intersection of West 29th Street and South Lake Avenue, where neighbors reported that a man had been hit with a vehicle after arguing with the driver.

Iron Heart sped away quickly when the officer tried to pull her over near 33rd Street and West Avenue, Clemens said, and the pursuit ended due to high speeds near 33rd and Willow Avenue.

The officer returned to the scene of the dispute and spoke with Iron Heart’s husband, who told him he’d upset her when he complained about her erratic driving and demanded to get out of the car. She apparently followed him with the car when he got out, and he later told the officer he’d “bounced” off the hood at one point during the ensuing argument.

Lady, are you high? Well …

Police caught 37-year-old Crystal Lee Iron Heart at the Arena Motel at around 8 p.m. … Iron Hawk was charged with DUI, aggravated assault and aggravated eluding. She also was charged with one count of hit-and-run for allegedly tagging a parked car at 33rd and West.

i dare you

What, you think just because it’s Niceville that they won’t call the cops? As reported by the Northwest Florida Daily News:

Niceville Police officers were summoned to Tisa’s Lounge on John Sims Parkway, where an employee said he’d told a 25-year-old Ohio man to leave several times. The man refused and was still in the lounge when officers arrived.

They told him to leave but the man refused, saying “I wouldn’t have to leave in Ohio.” Officers pointed out Florida law differs from Ohio law, but he still refused to leave, saying, “I don’t believe you.”

Really? Let’s see if you believe me now.

He was asked one more time to leave when he reached out his arms and said, “Arrest me, I will (expletive deleted) be out tomorrow.” He was charged with trespassing and has a Nov. 26 plea date.

Think he’ll dare the judge to sentence him? Maybe he’ll say “I wouldn’t get any jail time in Ohio.” Here’s the source.

car key

Please, please, please just tell The Juice you did not fall for the oldest trick in the book – the “key swap.” Okay, so The Juice had never heard of the “key swap” either. As reported by tcpalm.com:

It sounds like a Hollywood heist. Thieves stole a $55,000 vehicle from the Arrigo Dodge dealership Wednesday afternoon without breaking a sweat or a window.

Maybe Hollywood, Florida, but pretty smooth nonetheless.

Investigators said it happened while an employee was showing a black 2012 Jeep SRT8. The thief took a look inside, started it, and as he was getting out, swapped the keys for an identical pair. The next few moments were all captured on camera.

The male thieves get into the Jeep and drive right off the lot undetected minutes after the salesman had just showed it.

So they just swapped a dummy key for the real one, and then hit the road soon thereafter. As for their current whereabouts? Unknown.  You can read more, and see a video of the story, here.

doughnuts donuts

You will not believe the lengths this gent went to just to get a discount on some donuts, not that asking them for free would have changed the story very much. As reported by www.mysuncoast.com:

Deputies say 48-year-old Charles “Chuck” Barry went to the drive-thru of a Trinity Dunkin’ Donuts last week, and after identifying himself as law enforcement, asked for a discount on his order of donuts.

Why certainly officer! No?

When the clerk refused to give him the discount, Barry allegedly held up a gun — still in its holster — and said, “See, I’m a cop!” The witness told investigators Barry never pointed the gun at him or took it out of its holster.

Yeah, still not buying it. Undeterred …

The next day he went through the drive-thru again and the manager took down his license plate tag.

Really? Again?

On November 12, surveillance was set up at Dunkin Donuts and a Deputy with the Pasco Sheriff’s Office observed Barry driving away from the business. A traffic stop was conducted and while speaking with Barry the deputy observed he had a law enforcement badge in his wallet. He was also carrying a .38 caliber revolver in his front pocket. He was positively identified by store personnel and arrested on above mentioned charges [False Impersonation of a law Enforcement Officer and Improper Exhibition of a Firearm.]

twins

Coming forward as a witness is your civic responsibility, even when it’s dangerous. That said, the concept of “honor among thieves” is altogether different. Tell that to this gent, who committed a slew of crimes with his twin brother. As reported by wmbfnews.com (Charleston, South Carolina):

Federal prosecutors say a 30-year-old man was convicted of 39 armed robberies after his twin brother testified against him in court.

Wo. That is a boatload of armed robberies.

US Attorney Bill Nettles said Winard Montez Eady of North Charleston was convicted following a four day trial for his role in a string of business robberies. Eady was convicted of conspiring to commit robbery affecting interstate commerce and possession of a firearm in furtherance of the conspiracy.

According to court officials, the robberies focused on Asian restaurants, check cashing businesses, and loan businesses in or near Charleston County, also ranging as far as Walterboro, Holly Hill and Georgetown.

Evidence presented in the trial established that Eady, along with his two accomplices, committed a series of 40 armed robberies between July 2009 and March 2011.

Incredible that they were at it for almost 2 years without getting caught. The testifying brother must have gotten a huge break, right?

Court officials say Raynard Eady, who is facing 80 years in prison, and Simmons, who is facing 32 years, had previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the robberies and testified in Winard Eady’s trial.

Raynard Eady and Simmons each admitted to committing over 25 of the robberies.

The three men will be sentenced at a later date.

He’ll probably still get his break. Remember, he’s facing 80 years.  Here’s the source, including a mug shot of Winard Eady.

Hawaiian mom Ijeva Matavele had not been pleased when her 14-year-old daughter failed 2 classes. The girl agreed to get tutoring, and things … did not improve. As reported in the Honolulu Advertiser:

The daughter… skipped tutoring classes and hung out with friends. On the day her report card was due, the daughter — even though she was reminded by the mother to bring it home — said she forgot it at school, but eventually disclosed her grades included four C’s, one D and one incomplete.

When the mother demanded to know why the grades hadn’t improved, the daughter refused to answer. The mother then grabbed a plastic backpack containing a school folder and jacket and hit the daughter on the left arm as the girl tried to block the blow.

The daughter disclosed she had not been going to tutoring. When the mother demanded to know where she had gone instead, the girl refused to answer, prompting the mother to hit her with a plastic hanger about five times.

When the girl said she had been hanging out with friends, the mother felt deceived, got a small car brush and hit the daughter on the top of the left hand and on the knuckles with a plastic handle of a tool.

Ms. Matavele was charged with child abuse. So what happened? Hung jury. Then conviction. Then conviction affirmed by appellate court. Then conviction tossed by a 3-2 vote of the Hawai’i Supreme Court.

man%20on%20moving%20car%20roof.jpg

Beginning at the beginning – it’s a hunk of metal, plastic and glass.It can be replaced. A brain splattered all over the pavement can’t. From The Orlando Sentinel:

Val Jacques was playing chess at a Christian community center on Central Boulevard in Orlando on Friday afternoon, police say, when he saw a man climb into his sport utility vehicle. He’d left the keys in the ignition.

Jacques tried to open the door to the Mazda SUV, but the man locked it. Police say Jacques climbed on the roof, and the thief hit the gas.

So the dude goes from playing chess to would-be stuntman like that [The Juice just snapped his fingers.]

Minutes later, police say the thief, later identified as Mazzard McMillian, blew through a red light at the intersection of Central Boulevard and Orange Blossom Trail, smashing into a pickup truck and sending Jacques flying.

Had Mr. McMillian seen more movies or tv, he would have simply slammed on the brakes. And to all of you “reading” advocates, you can’t get that stuff in books … As luck would have it:

An Orlando officer who happened to be stopped at the intersection saw the crash, noting in his report that he saw Jacques “in the air and it appeared he was thrown” from the Mazda.

When the officer approached to check on Jacques – who’d travelled about 100 feet from the SUV, he said – McMillian got out of the Mazda and took off.

100 feet? More like “launched” than “thrown.” So was McMillian caught? He was. And if Mr. McMillian was hurt (likely), he was at least in good enough condition to tell the police what happened. To read more, click here.

Nobody likes waiting in the ER. But few people, if any, have reacted as this woman did. And it didn’t stop there. As reported by The Cleveland Plain Dealer at cleveland.com

Prosecutors said in April that [37-year-old Teri] Garko sought emergency medical treatment at the hospital and became angry at being kept waiting. She attacked the technician who was assigned to check her vital signs.

That will certainly get you attention. Not help, but attention.

“Garko punched and kneed the female victim numerous times in the face, chest and spine,” the news release said. “She also slammed the woman’s head into the floor and ripped a patch of hair and scalp from the woman.”

Note: “news release” – so The Juice did not make that up. But that wasn’t the end of it.

While out on bond for the hospital attack, Garko broke into the home of her ex-boyfriend and stabbed him and the woman he was sleeping with. Prosecutors said she stabbed the woman in the chest, which led to the attempted murder charge.

Okay, now it’s over. So what happened to Ms. Garko?

Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh said Teri Garko pleaded guilty to attempted murder, felonious assault and assault of an emergency medical worker.

The time?

[She] was sentenced Tuesday to 11 years in prison …

Here’s the source, with a mug shot of Ms. Garko.
