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 Juice often blogs about the misuse of Tasers by the police, but not this time. No, this time the use appears to have been justified – it’s just that the officer’s aim was abysmal! As reported by The Orlando Sentinel:
An unusual injury followed a confrontation in downtown Orlando last month when police tried to disarm a man outside One Eyed Jack’s sports bar, records show.
Rather than shoot Travis James Rodriguez for not dropping a Glock pistol on Dec. 8, a police officer used an electronic stun gun that delivers 50,000 volts through prongs tethered by tiny wires. One prong punctured Rodriguez’s right eyeball as the Taser automatically discharged a five-second shock, according to Orlando police.
At a boot sale, which is roughly the equivalent of a swap meet, an elderly couple must have been delighted with the lovely plant they purchased. Certainly it was treated quite well, as evidenced by its incredible growth. So why is this Juiceworthy? As reported by the BBC:
An elderly couple have unwittingly grown the “biggest cannabis plant” police officers had seen after buying what they thought was an innocuous shrub from a car boot sale.
Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies went to an apartment on Miracle Strip Parkway to arrest a man who had outstanding warrants. They unlocked the apartment using a key given to them by a resident and ordered the man to come out. He refused.
An initial search failed to reveal the man, so deputies searched again.
A lowlife swiped thousands in cash from a Third Avenue money machine on Dec. 27 — then doused the dollar dispenser in chlorine, cops reported.
Security cameras caught the villain breaking open the automatic teller between 79th and 80th streets at 3 am and taking $8,000 from inside — before pouring bleach all over the machine, cops said.
Police on Saturday arrested a Fair Haven man who they say received a kilogram of cocaine through the mail that had been hidden inside cans of beans.
So maybe it was a few cans of beans.
You may like shopping at Walmart. You may like working there, or you may have no choice but to work there. But if you think they give a damn about their employees, spend 30 minutes on the internet and you’ll learn otherwise. The Juice can understand an employee doing something unwise to try to protect his benevolent boss’s business. This clearly doesn’t fit in that category. As reported by wftv.com:
A Walmart manager had an unexpected ride down a Florida Interstate in the back of a truck after he tried to stop a man and woman he suspected of shoplifting beer late Monday afternoon.
First mistake: chasing someone down for beer! What if they turned around and shot him? It’s just beer!
Who knew that your undergarments are infused with your scent? Pretty much everyone, except for this woman, who tried to outsmart a police dog by stripping down to her bra and panties before fleeing. As reported by tcpalm.com:
A 25-year-old woman found in her bra and panties after a traffic crash told an officer she stripped off her clothes to try to “conceal her scent” from a police dog.
But Angela C. Ferranti’s disrobing plan last week apparently didn’t work as Kilo, a police dog, tracked into a wooded area in central Port St. Lucie where she was found, according to a recently released report.
According to an arrest report, on Thursday afternoon, 21-year-old Raylon J. Brooks an employee of UPS, removed an iPhone — worth $649 — from a shipping pallet and hid it inside his boot, then tried to walk out of the building with it.
But it didn’t quite work out as he planned.
