Hey, just like homeowners associations, all clubs have rules. The Mile High Club is no exception, and this mischievousness doesn’t cut the mustard. As reported by The Prince George Citizen (Halifax, Nova Scotia):

A flight attendant told the trial of a woman accused of committing an indecent act on a Toronto-to-Halifax flight that she and a man used a coat to cover their laps to fondle each other.

That’s a different club, right? Anyway …

The trial for 25-year-old Alicia Elizabeth Lander got underway Wednesday at Dartmouth provincial court.

Lander has pleaded not guilty to committing indecent acts, assaulting a police officer, committing an act of mischief and causing a disturbance at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport last Jan. 24.

John Dunn, who was service director for Air Canada Flight 610, testified for the Crown that Lander had asked if she could change seats to sit with her friend after boarding the plane in Toronto.

Dunn said about an hour into the flight, a passenger had told him the people sitting in 14A and 14B were about to join the “Mile High Club.”

He testified that he approached Lander and the man and found them with a jacket over their laps but said he could tell what was happening underneath.

He said he could see Lander’s thighs and pink thong.

“Her pants were down around her ankles,” said Dunn. “I said, ‘I want you to stop this now. It’s inappropriate.'”

Dunn said Lander’s hand was in the area of the man’s crotch making an up-and-down motion.

He said he asked Lander to get dressed and she eventually pulled up her pants, although she initially denied not being clothed.

Dunn said Lander was then asked to go back to the seat she was originally assigned in row 26, where she slept for the remainder of the flight.

He said he notified the captain of the incident, who arranged to have RCMP officers meet them at the gate.

Jason George Chase, 39, was also charged with committing an indecent act in connection with the same incident and had originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty on Wednesday.

Yes, some people want rules in their neighborhood.  And that’s why some people move into condos or neighborhoods governed by homeowners associations. But there are some really stupid rules – like this one! And some of you will say that these folks could have read the rules in advance, but nobody reads the rules! Do you read everything you sign (or click!)?  This is just an overreach by a group of folks who clearly have nothing better to do. As reported at Syracuse.com

The Kimry Moor Homeowners Association has filed a lawsuit against residents David and Arna Orlando in Onondaga County Supreme Court because they are parking their 2014 black Ford 150 pickup in their driveway at 511 Kimry Moor, just outside the village of Fayetteville.

The association wants an injunction to stop the couple from parking their pickup in the driveway of their home.

Yes, you read that right. And what’s the legal basis for this claim?

The association cites its regulations, which limits parking in driveways only to “private, passenger-type, pleasure automobiles,” according to the lawsuit. The association owns all the driveways in the development, according to court filings. The Orlandos could park their pickup in their garage, but not in their driveway.

Hmm. Sounds pretty vague to The Juice, and the association wrote it, so they lose! Not so fast. But what do the Orlandos have to say for themselves?

David Orlando said the pickup is his own personal. passenger vehicle and not a commercial vehicle of any sort.

“This is absolutely absurd,” he said.

David Orlando also said other people are parking pickups in their driveway. This past week a Syracuse.com/Post-Standard reporter saw a full size pickup with cap, a large van and a sports utility vehicle parked other driveways in Kimry Moor.

Orlandos’ lawyers said in court papers that the Orlandos’ pickup is a “private, passenger-type, pleasure automobile” and therefore is in compliance with the rules. Orlando and his lawyer, Tom Cerio, said the pickup is registered with the state as a “passenger vehicle” and not as a commercial vehicle. And the Orlandos do not have commercial drivers’ licenses.

“This is a silly rule,” said Tom Cerio, who is representing the Orlandos. “It’s fair to say the association is definitely overreaching. And they are enforcing this rule for a personal use vehicle, not a commercial vehicle.”

So what’s the status of the case now?

The lawsuit was filed in August 2013 and is still in discovery with depositions to come next, Cerio said. He declined further comment because this is a pending court case.

The Juice really hopes the Orlandos win on everything, including their claim against the association …

Court papers also said the association has “impeded and interfered with the Orlandos’ “quiet use and enjoyment” of their property. The Orlandos are seeking an unspecified amount of damages, which would help them pay for having to hire a lawyer to represent them in this legal proceeding.

The Juice will leave you with one more stupid association rule:

… holiday decorations must be displayed “in a subdued and proper manner.”

Sounds like a war on … celebrating! Not cool at all. Here’s the source, which includes a photo of the “offending” vehicle!

Are you really going to stand there and claim that you booted that vehicle? Uh-huh. Well, then where’s the boot? And the vehicle? As reported by the Brooklyn Paper Police Blotter:

84th Precinct – Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

A scofflaw managed to remove his car from Dean Street on Dec. 26, despite the city’s boot, according to cops.

A traffic officer reported that he placed a boot on a Chevy Trailblazer at 3:52 pm, while it was parked between Court Street and Boerum Place. He returned at 6:30 pm to remove the boot so a tow truck could take the vehicle, but the car and boot were already gone, cops said. The police report is for the stolen boot, which cops value at $1,200.

Someone’s going back to booting school!

The Juice will wager you have not encountered a shoplifter like this woman. As reported by by wtsp.com:

Guapiles, Costa Rica  – Captured on video, a woman shocked workers by stealing a flat screen TV by stuffing it up her dress, between her legs.

The woman simply walked into the store, picked up the packaged TV, placed it between her legs and walked out along with an accomplice.

According to reports, it all happened in 13 seconds:

“She did it so quickly no one had time to notice or react,” said the shop assistant.

Yikes! Here’s the source, which includes the video.

police officer cop policeman

If you can believe the police shows and movies, the worst jobs are probably desk jobs and traffic. This unit ain’t nothing like that! As reported by countercurrentnews.com:

A police officer in Arkansas recently lost his job after he exposed a massive scheme that allowed officers to have sex with prostitutes and then arrest them for servicing the undercover cops.

So much for having your cake and eating it too.

The way that Former Fort Smith Police Department Sgt. Don Paul Bales’ department had it set up, cops would “prove” that they weren’t really police officers, by having sex with prostitutes. The cop who had just broken the law himself would then follow up by arresting the women.

Now, a lawsuit that was obtained by local KFSM, reveal that an officer was fired for exposing the twisted police work.

The suit was just filed in Arkansas’s Sebastian County Circuit Court. The officer in question says he just wants his job back, as he did nothing but expose criminal activity among fellow officers.

This all started when Bales received a photo of an affidavit that had been filed back in April of 2014. That affidavit stated that an undercover cop in the “Street Crimes Unit” had engaged in what it termed “misconduct.”

license plate

Regular readers know that The Juice is a personal injury lawyer. During the course of his career, he has had several cases with the same key fact as this one, brought to you via the Hunterdon County Democrat (New Jersey).

A Pittstown man was charged with numerous offenses after a hit-and-run accident reported Dec. 27, at approximately 8:15 a.m. Patrolman Sean Ross was dispatched to Riverbend Road in the area of Moebus Place for a report of property damage. He found damage to a front lawn, a mailbox and bushes.

Unfortunately for the scofflaw, that’s not all the victim found.

The homeowner also provided Ross with a New Jersey license plate that was found among the damage. The license plate returned to a black 1992 Ford Mustang. Officers soon located the vehicle, which contained obvious damage, at a nearby residence. Ross thereafter charged Cody Papa, 21, with numerous motor vehicle violations, including reckless driving, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle crash, and failure to report a crash.

Doh! Here’s the source.

courtroom court room

Here’s an example of a judge in Arkansas who couldn’t keep it in, although he really didn’t pay a price for his misconduct. As reported by ArkansasMatters.com:

A Union County District Court judge is being disciplined after the investigation of several complaints.

The Juice has seen worse, but this stuff is just not cool.

One of the complaints involved a witness in a 2013 criminal case. While giving testimony, it was reported that Judge Van Hook appeared “angry, agitated and frustrated,” verbally berated the witness, then ordered his arrest without any probable cause documentation from any law enforcement officer or the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

After the witness’s arrest, he hired an attorney and all criminal charges filed against him due to the judge’s actions were dismissed by a special judge in 2014.

In other complaints, the Judge was reported to have spoken to people in court in a “discourteous and undignified manner,” telling one woman who appeared before him in June 2014 that she had “meth teeth.”

He also called someone else before him “stupid” and “yelled at him repeatedly to show his driver’s license to the Court.”  So what was the discipline?

The action amounts to a Letter of Censure issued to Judge Van Hook, which cites six complaints.

You call that discipline? You’ll find the source, including a link to the disciplinary order, by clicking here.

Craigslist is a great resource.  But that doesn’t mean that everyone who uses it is legit, as pretty much EVERYONE should know by now! As reported in the Colorado Springs Police Blotter:

Officers responded to a robbery where a shot had been fired. Investigation revealed that the victim responded to the 1400 block of Alvarado Dr. to purchase a vehicle from an ad he had seen on Craigslist. The victim met the alleged seller at an apartment complex and the victim gave him cash toward the payment of the car. The suspect then ran from the victim and the victim chased the suspect. A physical altercation occurred in the area of Verde Dr. and Zebulon Dr. where the suspect produced a handgun. A second suspect arrived and struck the victim in the head with a bat. The victim then continued to run after the suspect into a field east of that location and the suspect fired one shot at the victim. The suspects left the area in a black Altima with possibly bearing a temporary tag. Suspect 1 is a black male in his 20’s wearing gray sweats and a jacket. Suspect 2 was a black male in his 20’s with unknown clothing description. The victim was treated at the scene for his injury from being struck with a bat. Investigation is continuing.

That is one tough – and lucky – dude.

Once again, had these officers been regular Juice readers, they would not have busted this f-bomber. But they did, and the City of Farmington is going to pay. As reported by The Daily Times:

Tye Trujillo was arrested at IHOP, 3546 E. Main St. in Farmington, by three Farmington police officers after allegedly saying the word “F—” several times shortly before midnight on June 11, 2013, according to an arrest report.

The officers — Dennis Ronk, Albert Boognl and Tamara Smith — were eating dinner at the restaurant in full uniform when the offensive language was used, the report states.

Trujillo, 32, was at the restaurant with several friends. A family with three small children were seated near them, the report states.

According to the report, Ronk approached the men and told them that if they said the word one more time, he would arrest them.

Trujillo allegedly used the word again and Ronk followed through on his threat, the report states.

Trujillo was cited for disorderly conduct and was found guilty of violating city code in Farmington Municipal Court on April 10.

Think that verdict held up? Nope. And now …

[Trujillo] … has filed a lawsuit against the city of Farmington claiming that his constitutional right to free speech was violated. He seeks unspecified damages in the lawsuit.
