go play in traffic

Mother of the day! So maybe she didn’t tell her kid to go play in traffic. What this Texas mom did do, though, was arguably worse. As reported by khou.com

Police in League City arrested a woman Monday night accused of making her 10-year-old son walk along the Gulf Freeway frontage road as a form of punishment.

According to the police department, officers received a report of a child walking on the shoulder of the 2100 block of the Gulf Freeway around 8:30 p.m.

During the investigation, police said it was discovered the boy had been forced out of a vehicle by his mom and told to walk home.

Yes that was on a “freeway,” at night! So what happened to her?

Angela Graciela Garcia, 34, was later arrested and charged with abandoning/endangering a child. Her bond was set at $7,500.

Here’s the source, including Ms. Garcia’s mug shot.

cucumber cucumbers

Exactly how did this burglar get busted by a cucumber? Here’s how, as reported by The Hull Daily Mail:

A dozy burglar was caught by police after having a bite out of a cucumber.

Got it yet?

Billy Donnelly, from Bransholme, Hull was caught after leaving DNA at the scene on a cucumber he had taken a bite from.

Doh! Curse you DNA! Even the Judge noted the unusual nature of this case.

The honorary Recorder of Hull and the East Riding, Judge Michael Mettyear, declared in disbelief: “He was caught by a cucumber.”

You can read a lot more about the case and see Mr. Donnelly’s mug shot here.

After reading this post, you will agree that no man will EVER mess with this woman. Hell, no man will even get within grabbing distance of her. Warning to male Juice readers: you may feel this man’s pain. As reported by wbtv.com:

Police in Shelby [North Carolina] say they arrested a woman over the weekend after she squeezed a man’s testicles out of his scrotum.

Joyce Maxine Gregory, 35, is charged with malicious castration and assault inflicting serious bodily injury, according to Shelby Police Chief Jeff Ledford.

YEOW! But why?

Police say Gregory got into an argument with an older man Saturday morning. When he went outside to call 911 she followed him and grabbed his scrotum.

The man ran to a nearby rescue squad building for help.

How could you possibly run after that? As for the perp …

Police were sent to the residence on Bowman Street to arrest Gregory. When she was placed in the patrol car, she pulled down her pants and urinated in the backseat.

Nice touch, right? You’ll find the source here, including a mug shot.

You do know that when you fire a bullet in the air, it will land somewhere, right? One man in particular is keenly aware of this. As reported by the Pinellas County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office:

According to reports, [Richard John] Smeraldo, his wife and friends were watching the fireworks display near the Safety Harbor Spa and Marina when something struck him in the face. He told deputies that he first thought he had been struck by a rock. But one of his friends found a bullet on the blanket next to her – and then Smeraldo realized he had been struck by the bullet.

Yikes.

Smeraldo was transported by ambulance to Mease Countryside Hospital. There deputies learned that the bullet evidently went through the bill of Smeraldo’s cap, into the bridge of his nose – out his right nostril, through the upper portion of his bottom lip and exited though his lower chin.

The bullet then struck a metal medallion Smeraldo was wearing on a chain around his neck – then bounced off the back of his friend and onto the blanket.

Smeraldo’s injuries required stitches and he was released from the hospital after treatment.

Freaky. And the shooter?

Deputies launched a search and investigation in an area just south-southwest of the Safety Harbor Marina. No arrests have been made as yet. The investigation continues.

fist%20punch%20hit.png

Some things you can chalk up to just having a bad day. But this? Nope. Gotta check yourself way before your fist approaches the meter maid’s face. As reported by the Chicago Sun-Times:

A west suburban man has been charged for allegedly punching a female meter maid in the face after she wrote him a ticket Friday evening in the River North neighborhood.

Hasan Perryman, 37, of the 800 block of South 19th Street in Maywood, was charged with one count of felony aggravated battery of a government employee, police said.

Perryman is accused of striking a Traffic Management Authority employee in the face about 5 p.m. Jan. 14 at in the 110 block of West Grand Avenue, police said.

The woman was writing a ticket when the man approached and repeatedly struck her in the face, police said. He fled but was found by a responding police officer.

Repeatedly? Dude. What about the meter maid?

The TMA employee was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety said.

Here’s wishing her well. (Hey, scofflaws, it’s nothing personal for the meter maids. It’s just business.)

Good things come to those who wait? So maybe that wouldn’t have been the case here, since our perp was waiting in line at the KFC/Taco Bell drive-through… Still, patience is a virtue. Impatience, at least when manifested this way, is criminal. As reported by tampabay.com:

Jennifer Lynn Betterly was angry at how long the woman in front of her was taking to order food in the drive-through lane Saturday evening.

Sure. It happens.

So after screaming at her, police said, Betterly repeatedly rammed her Ford Focus into the woman’s car, then drove off.

Yikes.

Betterly, 24, was arrested at 6:45 p.m. Saturday, about an hour after the incident at the KFC/Taco Bell at 1648 Missouri Ave. S, according to an arrest report. She was driving with a suspended license, and police found a prescription pill bottle containing a single pill of the sleep aid Ambien. The label was torn, and she was unable to prove the pill was prescribed for her, according to the report.

The charges?

Betterly faces felony charges of aggravated battery and possession of a controlled substance, in addition to misdemeanor charges of driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash.

Crazy, right? It’s not like she was at Wendy’s …

man%20on%20train%20track.jpg

The answer is “yes,” one man can stop a speeding locomotive. Is it a good idea? Nope. As reported by TCPalm.com:

A 26-year-old man accused Thursday of standing on railroad tracks in the area of Northeast Palmetto Drive and causing a train to make an emergency stop was arrested, according to an affidavit released Friday.

Joseph Robert Fabrey was arrested by a Martin County Sheriff’s deputy on a felony unauthorized person interfering with railroad train charge and a misdemeanor trespass on property charge.

The train conductor pointed to Fabrey and said he stood in the middle of the railroad tracks as the train approached. The engineer repeatedly used the horn and had to stop the train.

A worker identified as an assistant road master said Fabrey was standing on the tracks and stepped off “at the last minute,” according to the report.

Yikes. A felony. And the defense?

Fabrey … denied standing on the tracks.

No doubt that defense will prevail against the engineer and the assistant road master … Here’s the source, including a mug shot.

complainer%20yelling%20phone%20into%20man%20person.jpg

It’s just a fact that some folks will complain, whether they have good standing to do so or not. This dude is clearly one of those folks. As reported in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

A man who robbed a Wendy’s at gunpoint Saturday night apparently was so upset with his haul that he twice called the restaurant to complain, Atlanta police said.

“Next time there better be more than $586,” he said during one call. He made “a similar threat” in the second call, police said.

About 11:15 p.m., a man wearing a ski mask and holding a gun walked up to the drive-through window at the Wendy’s at 1940 Piedmont Road, police said. He told an employee to put the cash drawer on the counter.

After grabbing the drawer and running away, the robber discarded the drawer in the bushes at the nearby InTown Suites. Police dusted the drawer for fingerprints. However, the robber was seen wearing yellow gloves at Wendy’s.

Police also are checking to see if the robber shows up on hotel security cameras.

Dude would probably complain that the security camera makes him look fatter or older or shorter than he really is …

breaking out of jail

This gent didn’t wait to see if he was convicted and sentenced before breaking out. As reported by The Toronto Star:

Toronto police are searching for a 32-year-old man after he escaped the College Park courthouse before his court appearance Thursday morning.

It is alleged that Steven Gonyea was before the courts at the Ontario Court of Justice, 444 Yonge St., on charges of criminal harassment and break and enter when he escaped custody sometime between 8:45 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Police are still trying to determine how the suspect managed to escape, but it is believed that he fled the cell area somehow. They said similar incidents have happened in the past.

Sounds like maybe someone else should be running the detention facility in the courthouse? Here’s the source, including a mug shot.

snake

When you go around shooting a gun willy-nilly, well, who knows what (or who) you might hit. As reported by The Orlando Sentinel:

Brandon Rapé was in a pickup truck with two friends Thursday about 11 p.m. when they pulled to the side of Sylvan Lake Drive near  Sanford so that Rapé could answer the call of nature, a Sheriff’s Office report states.

The men saw a large snake in the road, and Jared Hemphill, also 18, decided to shoot it with a semiautomatic rifle that belongs to Dustin Downer, 21.

This was a very bad decision.

Hemphill heard a noise in the bushes and assumed it was the snake, so he fired the Remington Speedmaster and accidentally struck Rapé in the left thigh, he told investigators.

Hemphill threw down the rifle, and he and Downer put Rapé in the truck, started driving to a hospital and called 911, according to the report.

A dispatcher told them to stop, so they pulled into the parking lot at Wilson Elementary School, 985 S. Orange Blvd., where deputies and emergency medical technicians met them.

It looks like young Mr. Rapé will have something other than memories of serious pain to commemorate this night.

Doctors at Orlando Regional Medical Center decided to leave the .22-caliber bullet in Rapé’s leg, the report states.

The charges? None.

Rapé, a cashier at a hardware store, did not want to press charges, and no one will be arrested, sheriff’s spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said.

Interesting, since it does seem like a scenario where, just maybe, alcohol could have been a factor. Here’s the source.
