You have to admit, it’s not the most illogical place to hide some sausage… It would appear, though, that this gent may have overdone it. Per The Cairns Post:

A man hit a snag with police after he stuffed his pants with sausages and a meat pack in an alleged theft at an Innisfail supermarket.

It is the region’s second case of shop-stealing involving sausages stashed in trousers in recent months. (You can read about the first one here.)

Police officers were called to the store after the 50-year-old was seen allegedly leaving without paying for the stash on Wednesday.

In a move that surely disappointed the bargain hunters out there …

It is understood the meat has been disposed of.

Well, yes, the family that drinks together often does get drunk together. And they do stick together too. As reported by timesonline.com (Beaver, PA):

Rochester police said [Jason Dean] Sheets [25] Sheets and John William Moore Jr., 47, also of 300 Jackson St., Apartment 31, were pumping gas at Sheetz on Adams Street on May 1 when they began harassing a young black man in the store. The two men followed the man out of the store and an argument started, police said.

Not cool.

When officers arrested Sheets, he began to struggle, yell and swear at them, the police report said. Once inside the police car, Sheets tried to kick out the windows and slammed his head against the glass partition, police said.

And mom just stood by and … no?

[Annette Marie] Davis [44], who is Sheets’ mother, became irate during the arrest and also began to struggle with police and kick them in the legs.

Yikes. The charges?

Davis … is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, and one count each of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

Sheets … is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, and one count each of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

What about Mr. Moore?

Moore, who was driving the vehicle Sheets and Davis were riding in, was charged with drunken driving.

Like most cities, Portland has some weird laws still on the books. As reported in the
The Oregonian:

… Then there are the head-scratchers. Publicly scraping clean the skeleton of one’s beloved in a cemetery is a criminal act. Chain letters are strictly prohibited. In city parks, it’s illegal to climb a tree, sit on a vase or lie upon a picnic table. Sailors fleeing a burning ship may, but are not required to, sound a horn or whistle in blasts of four to six seconds, no more or less. Teens might be breaking the law if they cruise down certain busy streets more than twice in a night.

You can read more (a fair amount) here.

It was widely believed that EVERYONE knew ATMs have cameras. Perhaps now, with the arrest of this man, that is indeed the case. As seen at thebrooklynpaper.com:

A man was arrested for attempting to steal money from the same automated teller machine on Bedford Avenue four times between April 4 and May 2 by sticking pliers up the money slot.

Four times! With pliers!

The owner of the building between N. Fourth and N. Fifth streets gave police surveillance video that shows the 31-year-old man trying to get money out of the machine at 2 pm on April 4, 7 pm on April 4, at noon on April 9, and at 2:38 pm on May 2. Each time, he damaged the machine.

The determined suspect was charged with several counts of attempted grand larceny, criminal mischief, possession of burglar’s tools, and attempted petit larceny.

Everyone knows nicotine is physically addictive. But check out what these gents went through just to get some cigarettes, per ThePoliceNews.net:

La Marque, Texas — Police are looking for two men who pulled pistols on a convenience store clerk and made off with a supply of cigarettes valued at about $100.

The pair of black men, dress all in black and wearing ski masks pulled the robbery Wednesday morning at the Main Street Grocery Store in the 1600 block of FM 519, then fled on foot.

Police ask anyone with information about the two call La Marque Crime Stoppers (409) 938.8477

Ski masks and guns for $100 in cigarettes? That’s a head-scratcher. Here’s the source.

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon – Thurs 11p / 10c
Daily Show Full Episodes Political Humor Rally to Restore Sanity

Except for Rich Sanchez (see video above), nobody wants to get tased. But how far would you go to avoid it? Hopefully there is not another soul out there who would go to this length. As reported by The Macomb Daily:

A judge in Mount Clemens has sentenced a father to a year in jail and parenting classes after he used his 2-year-old daughter as a shield during a confrontation with a Taser-wielding police officer.

27-year-old Joseph Cox of Belleville … pleaded no contest to misdemeanor child abuse and guilty to home invasion and obstructing an officer.

He was accused in March of breaking into his ex-wife’s Warren home. The child was held in front of a Taser pointed at Cox by an officer. The officer didn’t fire.

Clearly, Mr. Cox is no Rick Sanchez.

Here’s a tasering you probably remember …

First and foremost, teachers should be good at their jobs – teaching. If they can also serve as role models, that’s a bonus. This man won’t be in the “bonus” category. As reported by sacramento.cbslocal.ccom:

Someone notified Willis Jepson Middle School officials that 53-year-old Bobby Chambers, of Chico, had a loaded weapon and marijuana in his car.

Think he pissed someone off?

School officials contacted a Vacaville Police Youth Services officer to investigate the allegations.

During a search of the vehicle, which Chambers consented to, officers found a loaded handgun, ammunition, cocaine, and less than one ounce of marijuana.

Chambers was arrested without incident and booked into Solano County Jail on drug and gun charges.

Nobody can argue that the internet has dramatically changed the world. Some folks, though, turn to it when they ought to just do things the old-fashioned way. For example, there’s this woman in Santa Fe, Texas, as reported by kwtx.com …

Police in Santa Fe in Southeast Texas say the mother of a 14-year-old boy who was shot in the leg in a videotaped incident didn’t seek help for her injured son for seven hours while researching gunshot wounds online.

Say what?

Pete Jesse Rodriguez, 23, who was living at the family’s home, was jailed Thursday charged with injury to a child with intent to commit serious bodily injury, Santa Fe police said.

Capt. Wayne Kessler says the home’s security video shows Rodriguez playing with a gun Tuesday night, tracking the boy and firing.

And then …

Police say the mother and teenager checked WebMD.com before going to a hospital.

Really? Fortunately …

The boy was in stable condition Thursday.

Everyone craves some type of food at one time or another. And although you may not consider Cheez-Its to be food, a New Hampshire man had a serious craving, and apparently no cash. So, according to The New Hampshire Union Leader …

Officer Jacob Tyler was on patrol when he stopped to check on the business. When he pulled up, the clerk came out to tell him he had just been punched in the face. The officer noted redness around the clerk’s eye.

The clerk told Tyler he saw a man go out the door after hiding a three-ounce bag of Cheez-It in his pants. The clerk confronted him outside, the two got into a struggle, and the shoplifter punched him in the face and then ran off.

The thief is described as a white man, 6-foot to 6-foot-2 and weighing about 220 to 230 pounds. He wore a black hat and black shirt, both with white designs on them. He also wore black jean shorts with a white belt and white socks.

Two things: Clerk, you pursued a good-sized man over a bag of Cheez-Its? and Thief, you punched a guy in the face over a bag of Cheez-Its?

A man and a woman were also with him, the clerk said. Police located them in front of the Carpenter Memorial Library, 405 Pine St.

One of them, April Skinner, 18, of 800 Union St., was arrested after police say she became agitated, repeatedly shouted obscenities and refused to quiet down, drawing the attention of others inside the library.

She was arrested after a brief struggle with officers on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Perhaps the group is bound together by their common lack of good judgment.

Police said they expect to obtain warrants for the arrest of the shoplifter, who they declined to identify.

Hey, even The Juice fought a traffic ticket (and won, um, thanks to Officer No-Show). In all seriousness, The Juice had a valid legal defense. And perhaps this guy did too. But if you were dealing drugs, would you show up in court to fight a traffic charge? As reported by phillyburbs.com.

An arrest warrant had been issued Monday for Corey McCloud, 36, of Gentle Road, for allegedly selling to a confidential informant .29 grams of suspected cocaine Jan. 29 in Bristol Township.

He apparently didn’t know that, and was arrested when he appeared at a Bensalem district court for a hearing on a charge of driving while his license was suspended or revoked, Bristol Township Lt. Terry Hughes said.
