sisters.jpg

It’s really nice when siblings hang out together. After this stunt, they’re going to be doing something else together that’s not so nice. As reported by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office (Florida):

Two sisters from Miami were both arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol Saturday night because after being stopped by deputies, they switched seats in the vehicle they were traveling in.

That there was some quick thinking. Why settle for one DUI when you can get two?

Deputy Juan Martin-Reyes followed the Volkswagen northbound from the 23 mile marker to the 30 mile marker of the highway just before 11 p.m. He observed the vehicle swerving, increasing and decreasing speeds and braking suddenly. He turned on his lights and siren and the car stopped suddenly in the lane of traffic. Through the back window he could see the driver and passenger quickly switch seats.

Deputy Spencer Curry arrived as back up. The deputies had both 18 year old Steffany Miranda and 24 year old Vanessa Miranda perform field sobriety exercises. Both girls had trouble performing the exercises and were, according to the deputies, visibly impaired and smelled of alcohol.

And if you’re wondering how the second sister could get a DUI since the car was stopped …

Because both girls were, at some point, in control of the vehicle behind the steering wheel with the keys in the ignition, they were both charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

Don’t get me wrong. As a daily bicycle commuter, The Juice really likes bicycles, just not this much. Read this, from thelocal.se, and you’ll be clicking below to read the entire article.

Östersund police are investigating whether there is any connection between the recent spate of masturbation bike attacks with similar incidents from 2007.

Yup. As Miami Herald reporter Fred Grimm so artfully described it:

Jenne, as sheriff and chief jailer in Broward County, has launched a crackdown on self-abusing miscreants. It’s no longer enough to warn hairy-palmed drooling deviants that self-indulgence risks stunted growth, blindness, sallow skin, slackened jaws, amnesia, shrunken testicles, impotence and, for Catholics in particular, eternal damnation. Jenne wants jail time.

So, Terry Alexander, who is serving a 10-year sentence for robbery, was charged with masturbating in his cell. The case was tried, before a jury, who convicted him. Alexander got 60 days tacked on to his time. What a brilliant use of resources. If Sheriff Jenne keeps this up there won’t be any revolving door, because nobody will ever get out!

tongue%20sticking%20out%20rolling%20stones.png

No need to think twice about sticking out your tongue, either in the United States, or probably almost everywhere except … Italy. You may not believe this but, as reported by UPI, “Italy’s highest court of appeal affirmed the illegality of insulting someone by sticking your tongue out at them.”

The case brought before the Cassation Court involved a farmer whose tongue gesture was captured by a cellphone camera held by the neighbor with whom he was arguing.

The farmer, Carlo O., had been convicted by a justice of the peace of insulting the neighbor, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.

The Cassation Court let stand the conviction and ordered Carlo O. to pay his neighbor’s court costs of $1,863.81. He will also have to pay damages, which will be set in a different trial, the news agency said Friday.

Italian courts often find people guilty of offending someone’s honor, ANSA reported.

Wow. And to think the U.S. insurance and business lobbies complain endlessly about frivolous lawsuits…

Gundam%20Wing%20action%20figure%20anime.jpg

There’s nothing wrong with grown men liking toys, be they iPhones, sports cars, or … plastic action figures … A man in Japan was perhaps a little too attached to his toys, based on what he did when his mommy threw some of them away. As reported in the Japan Times:

A man charged with torching his home in Kasai, Hyogo Prefecture, admitted Tuesday he did it out of anger because his mother threw away some of his plastic figures from the “Gundam” animation franchise.

Oh, they were “Gundam” action figures? Now it all makes sense!

“Plastic figures of Gundam are like my life partners. I thought I would rather burn to death with them than have them thrown away,” said Yoshifumi Takabe, 30, who pleaded guilty as his trial began at the Kobe District Court. Nobody was injured in the blaze [although his mom was in the house!].

Takabe told the court he piled 200 to 300 boxes of Gundam plastic figures up to near the ceiling in his room.

Very uncool, especially since his little brother, mother and grandmother also lived in the 2-story house he torched . Here’s the source.

Yes people waste an insane amount of time on Facebook (that is, unless they’re going here.) That said, every now and then something very useful comes from Facebook use. This was posted on the Martin County Sherrif’s Office Facebook page on June 17, 2013:

********URGENT BOLO ALERT******PLEASE SHARE******* The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is asking you to Be On the Look Out for 48-year old Timothy Moriarty of Stuart. Moriarty is wanted for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. We have information that he is still in our area. The suspect was driving a blue 1996 Dodge van, Florida tag number AHP4G. Timothy Moriarty is said to be armed and dangerous. If you see him, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Lo and behold, the following day, this was posted:

Moments ago, 48-year old Timothy Moriarty was located and arrested by our SWAT Team, Uniform Patrol Deputies and K-9 Units who were led to Sandsprit Park by your tips. The Martin County Sheriff’s office would like to thank our Facebook followers who led MCSO to Sandsprit Park, shortly after our BOLO posting.

You know how the song goes: “Breaking up is hard to do.” Usually one party takes it much harder than the other. Such was the case here. Per The Daily News (Galveston County, Texas):

Friendswood firefighters responded at 10:10 p.m. Thursday to the 1800 block of LaSalle Street, where someone was burning a pile of clothes close to the back door of the home. A police officer climbed through a window when no one answered the door, police said in a statement released Monday.

Authorities said they issued a man a citation for illegal burning after accusing him of setting fire to a pile of his ex-lover’s clothes.

You break my heart? I burn your clothes. Let’s hope that’s the end of it. Here’s the source.

911%20call.gif

If you repeatedly call 911, rest assured that the police will come, though probably not for the reason you called. As reported by The New Hampshire Union Leader:

Police said the incident began just before 5 p.m. Sunday when Darlene Gladstone, 48, of 10 Harmony Lane called police and asked them to remove her 18-year-old son because she did not want him there anymore.

No crime had occurred at the residence to allow officers to remove the teen and they left, police said.

“My mistake, sorry?” Not exactly.

About 20 minutes later, police say Gladstone called 911 again asking that her son be removed. Police said there still was no reason to remove him and she was told 911 was for emergency situations only.

Eleven minutes later at 5:23 p.m., Gladstone allegedly called for a third time, again requesting her son be removed and again no crime having occurred, according to police.

Oh it’s on now.

Gladstone was arrested after an officer went to her home and determined there was no crime. Gladstone, who police said was visibly intoxicated and struggled when being handcuffed, also was charged with resisting arrest.

A little ironic that she was the one who ended up getting hauled away by the police?

Gladstone posted $3,000 personal recognizance bail. She is to be arraigned July 17 in 6th Circuit Court, Hooksett District Division.

Here’s the source, mug shot and all.

Needless to say, you won’t get flush working at the Rockaway, New Jersey Dunkin Donuts, even on the night shift, unless … As reported at dailyrecord.com:

Melissa Redmond, 29, of Mine Hill, was arrested after a six week investigation known as “extra sugar” that began when police got a tip that people could go to the Dunkin Donuts on Route 46 and arrange a liason with Redmond.

First reaction: Seriously, when resources are stretched so thin everywhere, the police spent SIX WEEKS on this? OMFG! Second reaction: “extra sugar”? Brilliant! But back to the intrigue…

“I had gotten an anonymous tip,” Detective Sgt. Kyle Schwarzmann, who led the investigation. “She was a night time employee (working 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.), supposedly a very good one.’’

Schwarzmann began gathering information and doing surveillance at the scene. He noticed on multiple evenings that she would go out to cars to see customers and would spend 10 or 15 minutes there, he said.

“Sometimes I ‘d even see money changing hands,’’ Schwarzmann said, adding that sometimes the cars would stay in the parking lot and other times they would drive to another nearby location.

So, with all of this valuable intel in hand …

An undercover operation was developed wth the assistance of Officer Robert Koehler and Officer Scott Haigh acting as the undercover “John.”

THREE COPS WORKING THIS CASE!!!!

“He went in plain clothes through the drive thru window,’’ Schwarzmann said. “He spoke to her and she said if he wanted a good time to call her and she gave him her phone number.”

Haigh parked in the parking lot and Redmond allegedly came out, approached him and gave him a specific price list for her services.

Haigh returned on another occasion and inquired about her services, was offered a new, and lower, price so he said he needed to go to a bank machine but would return with the money.

When Haigh returned, they drove to the back of the building and the arrest was made. Redmond was then processed, served her complaint and released.

Is it just The Juice (it often is, and he’s fine with that), or does anyone else (other than Ms. Redmond and her “customers”) think this was (and is) a colossal waste of time? Here’s the source.

It was a bad day for these growers when a certain police officer decided to go on a high-protein diet as part of a body building regimen. Huh? Here’s why, as reported by web.orange.uk:

“[Leicester police officers] asked their colleague in the back what he had been eating, and after fits of giggles and denials, they realised the cannabis smell was in the air in the street outside,” it said.

The team noticed a strong smell of cannabis as they sucked in the welcome fresh air, and tracked it to a nearby house, reports the Police Federation’s magazine.

“Imagine the surprise on the faces of the occupants of the house further along the road when the officers, following their noses, found a cannabis factory with a crop worth £12,000.”

“It was a good collar and it was all down to this officer and his flatulence,” a police source said.

A lucky collar, more accurately, unless it was your house. In that case, not so lucky. Here’s the source.
