A Florida woman used the comments section of a Pizza Hut order made from her smartphone on Monday afternoon to alert authorities that she and her children were being held hostage. When police responded to her message, arriving at the location, she and her children were quickly released, unharmed, and the kidnapper was arrested.
According to a Highlands County Sheriff’s Office press release, Cheryl Treadway, a woman from Avon Park, about 85 miles southeast of Tampa, had been arguing most of the day with her boyfriend, Ethan Nickerson, who carried “a large knife.”
Anyone over the age of, oh, maybe 6, knows that sometimes kids say things that aren’t true for a variety of reasons. A Kansas City mom took her 6-year-old son at his word, and she ran with it. The Juice is here to tell you, that was a HUGE mistake. As reported by KCTV:
An angry mother confronted her son’s teacher and hit her in the face, jerked her hair and rammed her head against a file cabinet, according to a Kansas City Police Department report.
Bam! That teacher must have done something really awful to the boy right? Here’s how it started.
When you think of road rage, you think about aggressive driving, or maybe even someone pulling a weapon, right? But this? You would not think of this. Ever. Per BeeNews.com (New York):
Police responded to a road rage incident on Union Road. Reportedly, two motorists were spitting on each other after following each other around town.
The Juice can think of worse ways to settle disputes.
No offense to all of The Juice’s white Mercedes-Benz-driving readers out there, but, given the headline, is it any surprise that the perp drove away in a white Mercedes-Benz? Out of the 62nd Precinct (Bensonhurst—Bath Beach) via brooklynpaper.com:
A disgruntled customer battered a cashier with a box of Lipton Iced Tea at a New Utrecht Avenue supermarket after she refused to ring up his purchases on Feb. 10, police stated.
The victim told cops she closed the line at her register at the store between 81st and 84th streets at 5:30 pm and told the would-be patron that she would be unable to check him out.
The Undersecretary of the Interior Ministry Lieutenant-General Suleiman Al-Fahd has ordered the detention of a police officer in the rank of Major for growing his beard without permission, reports Al-Rai daily quoting knowledgeable security sources. The source said Al-Fahd has also warned a lieutenant-colonel for the same reason and has issued strict instructions that disciplinary action will be taken against those who violate the laws especially if they grow beards more than 1.5 centimeters long.
Maybe he thought they wouldn’t notice? He measured wrong?
It’s just a bunny, right? Wrong, as Elizabeth Johnson, a junior at Gateway High School in Kissimmee, Florida learned. Her crime? She wore sweat pants with a Playboy bunny and the word “Playboy.” The time? Two days of detention! From a UPI article, here are the highlights:
Elizabeth Johnson, a junior at Gateway High School, said a dean approached her at school and instructed her to change out of her black Playboy sweat pants, which she did. She was forced to stay for an hour after school for two days, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Tuesday.
Johnson said there was nothing inappropriate about her attire, despite Playboy’s connection to soft-core pornography.
If you’re having success running the ball, you keep running the ball until the opposing team counters it by, say, putting more men in the box. (Yes, The Juice likes football.) But in life, going back to something that worked is not always a good idea, especially in the world of crime. Just ask this gent. As reported by The New Hampshire Union Leader:
A Plymouth man was arrested for allegedly committing two armed robberies at the same location about six weeks apart, police said Saturday.
Yup. He did.
Old folks like The Juice, especially (and almost exclusively) men, often quote from Animal House. As Dean Wormer said: “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life …” If you could have seen her mug shot (it’s been removed) you would have seen that “fat” doesn’t apply. “Drunk” definitely does. As for “stupid,” judge for yourself. Per The Orlando Sentinel:
An Oviedo Police Department officer who was assisting with security before UCF’s [University of Central Florida] first football game of the season against University of Akron got several reports of a woman urinating inside Parking Garage H.
It’s unclear how these gents aroused the suspicion of the cops, but they did. A plate check later and, well, the rest is history. As reported in the police blotter of The Highline Times:
According to the Burien Police department, two men were arrested after police spotted them waiting outside a uniform retailer in Tukwila. The incident took place on Friday, April 10, when two Burien Police Department detectives arrived at a police uniform retailer off highway 99 in Tukwila and spotted two men acting suspiciously outside of the store. The detectives ran a check on the license plate numbers of the Jeep the two men were sitting in and discovered that it was a stolen vehicle. When two additional officers from the King County Sheriff’s Department arrived to visit the uniform retailer, the Burien detectives decided to confront the men in the Jeep. The two men were arrested without incident for possession of a stolen vehicle but it is unclear why the men were waiting outside of the police uniform retailer.
If you forge a very large check, and you get away with it, leave the country! Why, because at some point, the company will audit its books, and you will get busted. If you’re sitting on the beach in a country that doesn’t extradite, when they discover what you’ve done, you don’t care! As reported by The Bismarck Tribune:
A Steele woman is accused of cashing a forged $250,000 check made out in her name.
Michelle Biegler was charged in South Central District Court, out of Morton County, with felony forgery and could receive up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000 if she is found guilty.
