After pleading not guilty, Buldoni, also known as Luis Martinez, tried to explain the offenses to Toth.

But Toth was having none of it …

As a general rule, cab rides not only lack drama, but are downright boring. There was an exception to the rule a few days ago in Sacramento, as reported by The Sacramento Bee:

A cab driver had a dispute with a rider over the destination at 20th and Q streets in midtown Sacramento on Saturday, according to a crime report.

The fare pulled a folding-blade knife, but no threats were made. The cab driver fled on foot.

all you can eat buffet
What, you think The Juice is joking? No my friend, this subject is way too serious to joke about. Per the International Business Times:

A Saudi cleric named Saleh al-Fawzan has issued fatwa against all-you-can-eat buffets in Saudi Arabia. He made the statement on a Saudi Quranic TV station.

Fawzan said the value and quantity of the food sold should be predetermined before hand.

parallel parking spot
“It’s just a parking spot. Fuhgeddaboutit.”  Unfortunately for a gent who was just sitting in his car, another gent really, really wanted his spot. We know this because, per the police blotter at brooklynpaper.com:

90th Precinct – Southside–Williamsburg

The victim told police he was sitting in his ride between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue at 10:45 am when the maniac banged on his driver’s-side window.

child kid drinking beer alcohol
The Juice does not have a problem with parents letting an older teenager have a drink in their own home. But this New Zealand law goes way, way beyond that, and extends outside of the home. In fact, it’s not clear what the outer limits are. As reported by The Otago Daily Times (New Zealand):

A Dunedin man was shocked when a health adviser confirmed young children could be supplied alcohol by a ”responsible” guardian. Steve Hayward contacted the Health Promotion Agency information line after finding their pamphlet on ”under-18” drinking in a Dunedin bar. ”I couldn’t believe what I was reading.”

The pamphlet in question detailed law changes concerning supplying alcohol for under-18s, which came into effect on December 18.  The brochure noted as long as the person supplying the alcohol was the parent or guardian, alcohol could be supplied in a responsible manner.  The brochure also noted that if consent was needed from a parent or guardian, then an email or text was sufficient.

learner's learners permit
They don’t call it a “learner’s permit” or a “beginner’s permit” for nothing. New drivers have many things to learn. Hell, most “experienced” drivers have plenty to learn.  Anyway, violating his “beginner’s permit” is the least of this gent’s concerns. As reported by wmbfnews.com:

According to Sgt. Bob Beres with the SC Highway Patrol, a trooper pulled over a car around 3 a.m. Sunday morning on US 76 near Bentree Lane because it was weaving.

During the traffic stop, the trooper and the driver struggled and the driver gained the trooper’s taser.

It was a bad day for Hamilton County, Ohio’s finest, but not nearly as bad as it was for John Harmon. Mr. Harmon, a diabetic, was suffering from low blood sugar when a police officer noticed he was driving erratically. So, after the police pulled him over, officers smashed Mr. Harmon’s window, dragged him out of the car, tased him seven times, and just basically shit-stomped him. As reported by the Cincinnati Enquirer:

John Harmon was coming off a late night at work when he left his downtown marketing firm for his Anderson Township home just after midnight in October 2009.

The 52-year-old longtime diabetic’s blood sugar levels had dipped to a dangerously low level causing him to weave into another lane.

friends don't let friends drive drunk driving
“Hey buddy, I think you’ve had a few too many. Why don’t you let me drive you home?” That didn’t go over so well. As reported by The New Hampshire Union Leader:

A Raymond man was arrested early Friday after hitting a friend in the parking lot of the Raymond American Legion with his vehicle and fleeing the scene, police said.

Edward Miller, 56, was charged with driving under the influence of liquor and conduct after an accident, police said.

Everyone has to start somewhere. If this is any indicator, and it probably is, a life of crime is not in the cards for these blokes. As reported by BeeNews.com (New York):

The clerk at a gas station on Main Street reported a suspicious white Chevy in the parking lot. A male kept getting out of the vehicle and coming into the store to attempt to sell the clerk drugs. The passenger had been grinding up aspirin on the floor mat and attempting to sell it as cocaine.

Doh!

teacher in a bad mood

It’s one thing for a teacher to encourage a young student to eat her lunch, but this was clearly over the line. As reported by nationalpost.com (Canada):

A spoiled banana pulled from a school trash can by a teacher and handed back to a student to eat — resulting in the teacher’s suspension, a Children’s Aid investigation and the withdrawal of an Ontario family’s children from the school — marks another skirmish in the lunchroom politics of schools and daycares. The “banana incident” — as even the school is calling it — took place at École élémentaire catholique Sainte-Marie in Simcoe, Ont. An eight-year-old student says she was forced to eat a “rotten” banana the teacher had retrieved from the trash. “It had all black spots on it so I threw it out,” the girl told the Simcoe Reformer newspaper. “My teacher found it in the garbage and gave it to me. I felt like I had to eat it. I felt like I’d be in trouble if I didn’t eat it.” The girl’s mother, Jordan Stewart, said the teacher was acting like a bully and lodged complaints with the school and child protection workers.

Definitely inappropriate. But it’s not like she shoved it down her throat. Unless there is more to the story, perhaps a good talking-to would have sufficed. Here’s the source.
