car on fire burning flames

Yes sir. This is one lucky man. But just remember, there are two kinds of luck … As reported in the police blotter of the Sun Star Courier (Ohio):

At 4:04 p.m. on Friday, a man was arrested on an active warrant after putting out a fire in his own vehicle on Barr Road.

The 34-year-old man’s truck caught fire due to failed wiring with the LED lights. A resident gave him a fire extinguisher to calm down the blaze.

After running the man’s information it was discovered that he had an active warrant from Cuyahoga County for failure to appear in connection with child support.

Doh!

cigarette

Here’s a tale of smoker who really, really wanted a cigarette. As reported in the Colorado Springs Police Blotter:

Officers were dispatched on a panicked call for help by a 24 year old resident of the Summer Grove Apartments, located near the intersection of N. Academy Boulevard and Austin Bluffs Parkway. The victim was an acquaintance of the 26 year old suspect. Santos Santier knocked on the door of our victim and requested a cigarette. Angered that he was awakened [at 1:00 a.m.] for such a trivial purpose, the resident closed the door without fulfilling his request, which now enraged Santier. Santier began kicking the entrance door, eventually gaining entry, then attacked the victim. Shortly after police arrival he was taken into custody. His actions resulted in an arrest for First Degree Burglary, a Felony. Only minor injuries were sustained by both parties.

Yikes.

Sure, the First Amendment permits you to yell at police officers, and even flip them off. But in most cases, they’re doing their job, and doing it within the law. And even when they’re not, you should consider your own circumstances before opening your yap. As reported by The Northwest Florida Daily News:

Niceville Police officers were investigating a case of underage smoking on Reeves Street when the man [age 21] and two of his friends “began hollering and asking questions about what I was doing,” the arresting officer wrote in his report.

That’s legit, as long as you don’t interfere. But you’ve now inserted yourself into the situation, which can have consequences.

The men consented to a pat-down and an officer felt two objects in one man’s pocket. The man said one of the objects was a lighter. The other he identified as a pipe he uses to “smoke weed.”

Yes? You said “yes”? Smooth move. There’s a reason the officer asked for your consent, jack. You could have said “no.”  The charges? … “drug equipment possession and marijuana possession.”

cigarette smoking ashes burning lit

You probably just assumed The Juice was talking about somewhere in the United States, didn’t you? It’s always about us! Well, this time it’s about Taiwan, as reported in The China Post:

Motor vehicle drivers caught smoking while driving on busy roads will soon be fined NT$600, according to a package of amendments coming into force next year aimed at raising the penalties for various offenses affecting traffic safety.

Amendments to the Road Traffic Management and Penalty Act (道路交通管理處罰條例部分條文修正案) passed in the Legislative Yuan after their third reading yesterday.

The sequence of actions involved in smoking while driving, such as lighting a cigarette, exhaling smoke and holding the cigarette, are all punishable acts under the new rules. The critical point is whether others are affected by the acts, according to the text of the amendment, which is most applicable to busy roads.

Each of the above is a punishable act? And what is “busy” anyway? You’ll find the source here.

money

Really, if you’re going to commit an armed robbery, with 2 other people (!), you can’t do any better than this? Rolls of pennies? As reported by wmbfnews.com (Myrtle Beach, SC):

Three males in hooded sweatshirts and masks robbed a convenience store in Horry County at gunpoint Monday night, making off with $250 in cash and 20 rolls of pennies, according to authorities.

Horry County Police responded to the Market Express convenience store at 490 E. Highway 9 at about 10 p.m. in reference to the armed robbery. The three males entered the store and told the clerk to lay down on the floor. The suspects were in and out of the store in less than three minutes, the police report states. There were no injuries reported.

According to Lt. Raul Denis with HCPD, there may have been a similar incident in Calabash about an hour before.

With an operation like this, they’ll be caught in a matter of weeks, if not sooner. Here’s the source.

ATM

It probably started with something like this: “Hey, I have a great way we can make some easy cash!” As you’ll see, it wasn’t such a great idea!   As reported by khou.com:

Employees at a Texaco gas station are cleaning up a mess after a failed smash-and-grab left behind a lot of damage.

It happened in the early-morning hours Monday along Beltway 8-North.

Witnesses said two or three men acting as customers came into the store first. A silver pickup then crashed into the business. The suspects then tried to get the store’s ATM into the back of the pickup, but they couldn’t pick it up.

Houston police were called to the scene, but the suspects were already gone.

There were no injuries reported.

Doh! You should see the mess they left behind – and you can. Just click here.

You’ll have to click on the link below to see the photograph of the haul. Only then can you understand the magnitude of what this fetishist did. As reported by The South China Morning Post:

Some thieves have a penchant for the strangest things.

Residents in Yulin city, Guangxi province, were treated to a colourful array of more than 2,000 sets of women’s lingerie laid out neatly on the ground at a public space in their neighbourhood on Saturday.

The used underwear, which belonged to women in the neighbourhood, had been stolen by a male resident over the course of the year, news website Gxnew.com.cn reported.

The report said the man hid the stolen lingerie above the false ceiling of several stairwells within the residential building where he lived.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So do you think someone can get jail time for watching a cartoon? Would it make any difference if the cartoons were sexual? Decide for yourself, after reading this from stuff.co.nz:

Ronald Clark downloaded the Japanese anime cartoons three years ago, setting in train events that would see him in court in Auckland and jailed for three months for possessing objectionable material, and sparking debate as to what harm is caused by digitally created pornography.

That’s a yes. Perhaps a little background will assist you, perhaps not.

Clark has previous convictions for indecently assaulting a teenage boy and has been through rehabilitation programmes, but the video nasties he was watching in this case were all cartoons and drawings. He says the videos came from an established tradition of Japanese manga and hentai (cartoon pornography), a massive, mainstream industry in that country.

They weren’t even depictions of people – Clark’s lawyer Roger Bowden described them as “pixies and trolls” that “you knew at a glance weren’t human”. Bowden said the conviction for possessing objectionable material was “the law gone mad”.

However, while the cartoon characters were elves and pixies, they were also clearly young elves and pixies, which led to concerns the images were linked to child sexual abuse.

So what do you think? If you’re uncertain, you can read more (a fair amount) here.

You go out drinking, and shit happens. But four times? Fuhgeddaboutit. As reported in the The Police Blotter in The Brooklyn Paper [88th Precinct (Fort Greene–Clinton Hill)]:

Some careful crooks emptied the pockets of a man sleeping on the Q train on Dec. 13, according to police.

The groggy 43-year-old straphanger said he was drinking at a bar in the Midtown section of Manhattan and boarded a Brooklyn-bound Q train at 11:30 pm on Dec. 12.

He fell asleep, and did not wake up until the train was heading back toward Manhattan, then exited at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station, the authorities reported.

He discovered that his wallet, cellphone, and bottle of anxiety pills were all missing from his pockets, cops recounted. The same thing has happened to the victim four times since 2007, officers added.

Doh!

police station sign

Occasionally people walk into a police station and confess to crimes. But how often do they walk into the station and commit crimes? Well, it happened recently in Philly, per wpvi tv (Philadelphia, PA).

It was around 11:30 a.m. Sunday when police say 33-year-old Carlen Higgs walked into the Upper Darby police station talking gibberish.

He then allegedly sat down in the station lobby and lit up a marijuana cigarette.

You can guess what happened next – but just part of it.

Higgs was then arrested and placed in a holding cell.

That’s the part you guessed …

While in the cell, police say, he took off all of his clothes, defecated on the floor and then wiped his waste on the walls.

No way you guessed that part.

Higgs was taken to a mental health facility where it was determined that he was high on drugs.

You might have guessed that part too.

He is now charged with possession of an illegal drug and disorderly conduct.

Here’s the source.
