po box post office boxes

Yeah, like the post office is going to grant access to a post office box to someone other than the person renting the box. Well, there’s one woman out there who thinks that should be the case. No doubt she would feel otherwise if someone wanted access to her post office box. As reported at nj.com:

A postal customer who was refused access to someone else’s post office box physically assaulted the postal employee who refused her, police said.

Yes, that’s certain to engender cooperation.

On Thursday, Gail Montgomery, 47, of Bridgewater, grabbed and pulled the hair of postal employee Linda Zhang at the United States Post Office at 495 North Bridge Street, according to Lt. Timothy Hoey of the Bridgewater Police.

Montgomery physically assaulted Zhang after the employee would not allow Montgomery to access another person’s post office box, Hoey said.

This next bit will probably not come as a big shock to you:

After the incident, police found that Montgomery had outstanding warrants in three other jurisdictions, Hoey said.

So what happened to Ms. Montgomery? She found some temporary lodging.

Montgomery was lodged in Somerset County Jail in Somerville in lieu of $2,100 bail, Hoey said.

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.

The Juice should have a separate flavor (check out the “flavors” [categories] on the right-hand side of Legal Juice) for posts like this: “What were you thinking?”  As reported by The Baxter Bulletin (Mountain Home, Arkansas)

Bull Shoals police officer David Chatman gave Stephen Lewis [age 47] a simple choice on Friday afternoon: take down a sign Lewis was putting up in Bull Shoals or receive a citation. (Lewis is the owner of Lewis Sign & Neon in Mountain Home.)

You should know that Mr. Lewis was driving a 30-foot-long, 12-foot-high bucket truck!

The incident started when Chatman informed Lewis that the sign he was erecting in Bull Shoals did not have a permit. Because sign owners didn’t have the proper documentation, Chatman told Lewis that the sign had to come down or he would receive a ticket.

Chatman described Lewis as uncooperative, saying he would not produce his driver’s license and would not get out of the truck when Chatman asked him to do so. Lewis eventually did get out of the truck and give his license to the police officer.

“I went and sat in my patrol car to write the citation out,” Chatman said. “At that time, I observed Mr. Lewis get into his truck, put it in drive and take off.”

Now that is a man with a plan.

Chatman informed his dispatcher that he was in pursuit of the large white truck heading east on Arkansas Highway 178. The pursuit was slow, never getting above 45 mph, according to authorities. Officers from Flippin, the Arkansas State Police and the Baxter County Sheriff’s Office headed out to various points in hopes of laying down spike strips.

45 mph? Shoot, even on his beater commuting bicycle, The Juice can almost hit that. Ok, maybe 30, going down a steep hill.

The pursuit ended at the intersection of AR Highway 178 and AR Highway 5 North when officers boxed Lewis in, forcing him to pull over.

Lewis was arrested by Bull Shoals police and taken to the Marion County jail, charged with fleeing and obstructing government operations, plus two additional misdemeanor offenses. He was released Friday night on $855 bond.

Think he’ll get the “proper documentation” next time? Here’s the source, including a photo of the getaway vehicle.

It was hard to decide whether to put this story in the “Uncool” or “Gross” category. The Juice went with “Uncool,” though it was a tough call. As reported by The Bastro Enterprise:

A video that went viral on the Internet appeared to show someone in a University of Alabama jacket abusing an unconscious Louisiana State University fan after Alabama beat LSU for the BCS football championship, Jan. 9.

Downing, of Smiths Station, Ala., was later booked on charges of sexual battery and obscenity. He was videotaped Jan. 9 “placing his genitals on an LSU fan’s face. The LSU fan appears to be heavily inebriated and practically unconscious,” a police statement said.

Here’s the source.

We’ve all heard a story about someone mistakenly thinking somebody is pregnant. The Juice will wager you haven’t heard of anything remotely similar to this. As reported by TCPalm.com:

A woman told police a dispute began after Jessie Mae Dorsey told her she was pregnant but she said she was “just getting fat.”

Awkward. But okay? Nope, not okay. Here’s how it went down:

“I’ve had five kids, I know how you walk when you’re pregnant,” Dorsey is quoted as saying.

The victim said she was “just getting fat,” and told police Dorsey walked toward her.

“Who the (expletive) are you catching an attitude with,” Dorsey is quoted as saying.

“You,” the victim said.

Dorsey is then accused of lobbing a cinder block chunk at the victim, hitting her head. Dorsey jumped on her, pulled her hair and bit her face.

The man walking with the victim pulled Dorsey off, and Dorsey beat feet.

Um, dude, think you could have jumped in a little sooner? And Ms. Dorsey, you bit her face! After you insulted her!

The victim had teeth marks on her face and bumps on her head.

Dorsey, 46, was arrested [for aggravated battery] March 16 on a warrant stemming from the … fracas … in Fort Pierce.

Go figure.

unmarked police car

The Juice was going to give the perp the benefit of the doubt on this – like maybe he didn’t know it was a cop’s car – but then he read the rest of the article. Poof! went the benefit of the doubt. As reported by tcpalm.com:

Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a suspect in a burglary to an off-duty deputy’s personal vehicle, according to a news release.

So, you’re thinking, maybe he didn’t know it was a cop’s car. Well …

The vehicle was burglarized Thursday while the off-duty deputy was at the beach at Inlet State Park, according to the release. His department identification, badge and off-duty handgun were stolen, along with his wallet and credit cards.

So, not only did he know, but …

The credit cards were used at the Publix in the Taylor creek Commons Plaza soon after the burglary, according to the release. The suspect was seen wearing a black t-shirt and pushing a shopping cart.

He used the credit cards! Enjoy your freedom, perp. It won’t last. Here’s the source.

handgun gun firing

Apparently it still is the wild west in some parts of Texas. This goes way beyond standing your ground or protecting your home. As reported by khou.com:

It happened in the 14400 block of Cypress Meadows Drive [in Harris County, Texas]. Investigators said the man was home when three robbers kicked their way into his home. The homeowner grabbed his gun.

These folks picked the wrong door to kick in. Hell, they picked the wrong state.

The homeowner ran outside and shot [and killed] a 47-year-old woman through the window of a car.

In case you missed that, the would-be burglars were fleeing in a vehicle when the homeowner shot and killed one of them. Clearly that fleeing part is a minor detail.

“I totally defend his decision,” said neighbor Doreen Hodgson. “Homeowners are tired of working hard and people feeling you can just take what you worked hard for.”

Investigators said her two partners in crime, both males, escaped in a green Chevy pickup truck.

Fortunately for them, the homeowner didn’t have an AK, or there wouldn’t have been an escape.

Neighbors are hoping this incident will send criminals a stern message. “Think twice,” Hodgson said.

Here’s the source.

Different strokes, right? But you have just have to wonder how someone could think that  this (1) is okay morally (2) looks cool, and (3) will not send you straight to hell. As reported at vegfriends.com:

Yummypets revolts against this new fashion jewelry in China: live animals in a plastic sealed bag containing a liquid with nutrient and oxygen that allows them to live up to 2 months.

Yummypets has signed the petition and encourage you to do the same so that the UN requires the Chinese government to ban the manufacture and sale of amulets and jewelry containing live animals.

You’ll find the petition here.

It stinks when your car breaks down. It really stinks when you borrow someone else’s car, and it breaks down. It really, really stinks when you steal someone else’s car, and it breaks down, and … Per the Colorado Springs Police Department:

Shortly after completing an unrelated call for service, officers pulled up behind a stalled vehicle on Nevada Avenue, just south of Arvada Street, to provide assistance to the motorist.

Protect and serve, right? Just trying to serve …

Two occupants exited the vehicle, with the male driver running away from officers

Now, time to protect …

A suspect description and direction of travel was immediately broadcast, as well as information that a computer check of the vehicle revealed it was reported stolen. Additional officers responded to assist contain the suspect within an area of a few city blocks. A search of the area was conducted with the assistance of our K-9 Unit, which forced the suspect out of hiding. The suspect was arrested without further incident. Further investigation led to the recovery of a second stolen vehicle.

Doh!

One might think the f-bomb has the power of an a-bomb, the way folks deal with it. Take the recent case of a judge in New York who was not pleased with the shirt an alternate juror was wearing. Per the New York Post:

The shirt in question, worn by 19-year-old alternate No. 3, Nneka Eneorj, as she sat in the front row of the jury box, caught the judge’s eye just as the defendant was about to take the stand. “WHO THE F[UCK] IS KANYE WEST?” the shirt read, the offending obscenity resting just above the wood veneer rail of the jury box.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Thomas Farber ordered the other jurors out of the courtroom — directing Eneorj to stand before his bench.

Uh-oh.

“Do you think it’s appropriate to wear a shirt that says ‘f—‘ on it in my courtroom?” the judge asked, anger in his voice.

Based on the reporting, The Juice is unclear. Did the judge say “f—” or “fuck”? If it was the latter, oh no you din’t! Anyway …

When Eneorj started to protest about having a sweater on — not that it covered the front of the shirt — the judge cut her off, demanding, “You’re excused.” “Sounds like a personal problem,” she sniffed of the judge as she walked out of the courthouse, indignantly.

So she’s already an alternate juror, and is not even given the opportunity to turn her shirt inside out? Oh, and here’s some of the testimony from the case later that day:

Officer David London — caught on surveillance tape delivering a violent, 20-blow baton beating to a prone suspect in an Upper West Side lobby two years ago — let at least a dozen “F-bombs” fly as he recounted what suspect Walter Harvin was purportedly threatening as the blows fell. Among Harvin’s shouts, London told the remaining jurors, were, “You can’t take me,” “I’m gonna f—ing kill you,” and, it’s derivation, “I’m gonna f—ing kill you motherf—er.”

And here’s Ms. Eneorj after leaving the courthouse:

“You will not believe what the f[uck] just happened!” she gabbed into her cell phone, as two news photographers snapped away on the sidewalk outside.

Here’s the source, including a photo.
