Madison Rogers was recently a finalist in the Miss Hooters Tennessee pageant. Not only did she lose the pageant, Madison also lost her boyfriend. However, just hours after he ended their two-year relationship, Madison went to her ex’s house, kicked in the door and began assaulting him. The man was able to fight off Madison and call 9-1-1. While waiting for police to arrive, Madison yelled at her ex if he ‘liked the upstairs.’ The answer was likely ‘no’ as the ex then went upstairs and found his bedroom, bathroom and closet in shambles. Somehow, after dating for two years, Madison was unaware of her ex’s home security system, which caught her redecorating on video. Madison ran away before officers arrived, but was eventually arrested on charges of aggravated burglary and vandalism.

 

Florida deputies say Robert Foley was driving towards a large ditch in Lehigh Acres last Wednesday. Police reports say that based on the physical evidence it was apparent Foley’s Nissan Versa was traveling at such a great speed that it jumped the ditch in a ‘Dukes of Hazzard-like’ manner. However, unlike Bo and Luke, Foley then crashed into a parked truck and fled on foot. Deputies later found Foley and say he appeared to be in pain and solved many unanswered questions as he smelled of alcohol.

 

Two masked men approached the bartender at Steiny’s in Winona, Minnesota last week. One of the men had his hand hidden inside a paper bag, which he raised toward the bartender. It was then that one of the men dropped a pull tab box, prompting patrons to believe the masked men were unarmed. The belief proved to be accurate as during the ensuing scuffle the bag went sailing out of the would-be robber’s grasp, showing the weapon to be a fragment from an air freshener. The robbers fled the bar empty-handed, but the bartender and the patrons identified them as Jaquann “Bay Bay” Hughes and Antonio “Little Tony” Shorter. Not only had they been at the bar until about 15 minutes before the robbery, DNA and fingerprints confirmed their identities and arrest warrants have been issued.

 

Springwater, New York’s Stanley Payne, Jr. crashed his demolition derby car into another vehicle last week. Unfortunately, Payne wasn’t competing in a demolition derby at the time. Police say Payne became irate because the vehicle was parked partially on his lawn and took matters into his own hands. Police also took matters into their own hands and Payne has been charged with criminal mischief.

Last Tuesday, Indiana’s 21-year-old Tyler M. Kiger got mad at his 15 year-old brother and punched him in the head. Their father said in a Facebook video the incident wasn’t intentional. Still, Tyler’s punch cracked his brother’s skull, which led to bleeding in his brain and his death several hours later. Tyler has been arrested on involuntary manslaughter charges and if you’re wondering why he was mad at his brother it was because he was vaping indoors.

 

Last Wednesday morning, paralegal Jennifer Monge showed up for work at the Bronx District Attorney’s office. However, instead of assisting the attorneys with their duties, she created more work for them. As Jennifer arrived at the office, she accidentally dropped her bag, spilling crack cocaine and heroin onto the floor. Jennifer was arrested and her father said, ‘I gave her a good education here, and I break my back working here, and she chooses to do this? I don’t feel sorry for her.’ Dad also said Jennifer recently applied to become a Pennsylvania state trooper, but has just blown her chance at getting the job.

 

Alabama’s Randall Stephens recently attempted to steal power from a utility pole. Shockingly, Stephens was briefly successful as he stole enough power to electrocute himself. Stephens’ theft attempt was discovered after his skull was found in a neighbor’s front yard on Friday, while the rest of his body was found badly decomposed at the bottom of a power pole.

 

Defendant Dorleans Philidor was sitting in a wheelchair next to Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Lisa Walsh when he relieved himself and tried to throw his poop at the judge as he yelled, “It’s protein! It’s good for you!” Luckily for the judge, Philidor’s toss missed its mark and the trial was moved while the courtroom was sanitized. This came after Philidor had defecated on himself in a holding cell the day before. Amazingly, jurors acquitted Philidor of burglary charges, but he still faces another trial in a grand theft auto case, and perhaps still another for the poop toss.

 

Milwaukee police say a 20-year-old man, who luckily for his dignity is remaining nameless, was walking in a residential area shortly after midnight on Friday when he saw two people walking toward him. Believing he was about to be robbed, the man pulled out a gun and promptly shot himself. The man was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening wounds.

 

Last Tuesday, Slidell, Louisiana police were called to a local Walmart about a shoplifting in progress. Police arrived and asked Robert E. Myers to step out of his truck and speak with them. However, Myers instead drove away, dragging one officer for a short distance and attempting to run over another cop as he sped off. The high speed chase continued into Mississippi, where Myers lost control of his truck and crashed. Myers was taken into custody and told Slidell officers that he didn’t think they could chase him into a different state. Myers was likely even more surprised when he was charged with numerous offenses in both states.

 

An unnamed man was driving through Clearfield County, Pennsylvania on Thursday when he and Michael McKendrick got involved in a road rage incident. When the man pulled into a Walmart parking lot, the other car followed and McKendrick emerged with a knife. The other motorist attempt to defend himself with a weed whacker, but McKendrick upped the ante by drawing a gun and pulling back the hammer. That sent the other motorist running to his car and he sped away while calling 9-1-1 with McKendrick and his driver in hot pursuit. Police intercepted them before further damage was done and McKendrick and his driver are facing numerous charges.

 

Peoria, Arizona’s Stacy Rupp took her 9-year-old son to McDonald’s last Wednesday evening…and left him there. Eventually, employees noticed the dirty and disheveled boy was all by himself and called police. The kid told officers that his mother had dropped him off so she could go gambling, but that he wasn’t upset because she always comes back. Sure enough, Stacy arrived at McDonald’s and first told officers she’d gone grocery shopping, but soon confessed she was at the casino. When asked why she dropped her son off at the restaurant, Stacy told cops, “He drives me crazy and steals my money.” Stacy lost again as she was arrested on child abuse charges.

 

Houston mom Lexus Stagg played a game with her three children earlier this month. The game of ‘chicken’ involved the kids chasing after her in her SUV as she drove backwards. Stagg is seen on surveillance video switching gears and then driving forward, running over her 3-year-old son. After running over her son with the front tire, Stagg kept driving and ran over him with the back wheel as well. Police say alcohol wasn’t a factor, but Stagg has been charged with criminally negligent homicide.

An unidentified woman allegedly stole some beer from the NSA Supermarket in New London, Connecticut and then got trashed. However, it’s not exactly like it sounds. After swiping the brew, the woman made a hasty getaway by sliding down a chute inside the store. Apparently unbeknownst to the woman, that chute led to a trash compactor, which was eventually activated with her inside. No word on whether the woman got to enjoy her beer before she was extracted from the trash compactor and taken to a hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries.

 

An unknown man went into a Peoria, Illinois-area Walgreen’s on Monday night, went to the liquor section and put five bottles of Jose Quervo and Captain Morgan into his jeans. The man then walked out of the store without paying. Apparently a satisfied customer, the same man walked back into the store a few minutes later, went right back to the liquor section and put four bottles into a backpack and hid four more in his jeans before walking out again without paying. Police say the man was described as being in his late teens or early 20s, likely with very baggy pants.

 

 

Construction is underway on the new East Helena High School in Montana and contractors are doing a bang up job. As a parent in the school district drove by the school, they noticed brick inlay artwork on one of the walls that depicted two handguns pointed at a cowboy. The parent sent a photo to Superintendent Ron Whitmoyer, who discovered that one of the subcontractors took it upon themselves to create the mural. Whitmoyer later said, “They had really good intentions, but they obviously aren’t aware of the situation going on nationally with school shootings.” However, it’s not known how they could not be aware or what those good intentions were.

 

More than 20,000 Christians have signed a petition calling on Netflix to cancel the TV series ‘Good Omens.’ If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a demon and an angel that join forces to prevent the coming of the antichrist and the apocalypse. The Christians say ‘Good Omens’ is “another step to make Satanism appear normal, light and acceptable” and “mocks God’s wisdom.” Speaking of wisdom, it’ll do the group little good to ask Netflix to cancel the series as it’s already concluded and was from Amazon Prime.

 

Overland, Missouri’s Edward Terry allegedly sent an email to one of Pride STL’s parade planners saying he would come to pride fest with his guns to kill every gay person he could before killing himself. The good news for Terry is that his death is not imminent. The bad news for Terry is that’s because the parade planner contacted the FBI and authorities traced the email back to his cell phone and placed him under arrest. Terry is now facing a charge of making a terrorist threat.

 

Jonathan Ortiz has been arrested after he was found playing Pokemon Go in a closed Tampa park. While it may surprise some that anyone is still playing Pokemon Go, Ortiz ended up being the one that was captured by a deputy, who noticed he was holding marijuana in plain view. A search of Ortiz’s vehicle yielded 3.5 grams of cocaine, 5.5 pounds of THC oil, and a pound of marijuana and Ortiz now faces various drug charges.

 

An unnamed couple recently hosted a gender reveal party, which may have ensured it would be their last. The unidentified couple shared the video to YouTube in which they fired off air cannons that would shoot out pink or blue powder. Unfortunately, the recoil of the man’s cannon hit him squarely in the portion of the anatomy necessary to produce the baby. (See here)

Authorities: Alabama man fed meth to caged ‘attack squirrel’

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — Alabama investigators say a man kept a caged “attack squirrel” in his apartment and fed it methamphetamine to ensure it stayed aggressive.

The News Courier reports authorities are seeking 35-year-old Mickey Paulk on multiple charges including possession of a controlled substance.

Law enforcement was warned of the animal prior to executing a search warrant of the Athens home Monday.

It’s illegal in Alabama to have a pet squirrel. Officials from the state’s Department of Conservation recommended releasing the animal, which deputies did successfully.

On Sunday morning, the Topeka, Kansas, Police Department sent out a Father’s Day tweet asking families to give their dads a day “they’ll never forget.” However, instead of urging families to spend quality time with dad, they tweeted: “Does your child’s father have warrants?” “Is he carrying around any drugs? Has he been committing any crimes? Want to give him a Father’s Day he’ll never forget? Call TPD and we’ll help your family make a memory that will last a lifetime.” Yes, the public thought it was pretty tasteless to have people turn in their dads on Father’s Day and the tweet was taken down within an hour. (See tweet here)

 

Last week, Del City, Oklahoma, firefighters were called to a house fire. After putting the fire out, a local TV news crew interviewed neighbor Annie Durham regarding the blaze. However, the fire was determined to be suspicious and an investigation was launched. While looking into the blaze, investigators examined home surveillance video that showed a woman throwing a burning object at the house. As fate would have it, the video came from Annie’s home surveillance system and investigators recognized Annie as the woman throwing the burning object from the TV interview she did after the fire.

 

Police in Queens, New York responded to a report of a dead infant outside a park yesterday morning. First responders examined the body and declared the child dead. A short time later, nearly 100 police personnel were on the scene, canvassing the park for evidence, with caution tape blocking off multiple intersections. However, the investigation was called off when someone finally noticed the infant was actually just a realistic-looking doll made to look like a decomposing baby.

 

Fredericton, New Brunswick’s Rachel Schmidt and her 11-year-old son were recently stopped by police after they went grocery shopping. It seems that a concerned citizen had called police after seeing what appeared to be a dead body in their car. However, officers let them go when they explained that “Jeffy” was just a realistic-looking skeleton they’d bought at a local yard sale for $2. (See Rachel’s post here)

 

An unnamed employee of a bar in Changsha, China was asked by her boss to compile and send over some documents last week. Unfortunately, the boss later fired the woman due to ‘poor discipline.’ However, it wasn’t because she failed at the task, it was because she acknowledged her boss’s request with the ‘OK’ emoji in a group chat.

 

Brandon Joseph Giron went into a Greensburg. Pennsylvania Dollar General store last Friday and pulled a gun on a store clerk and said, “Tell me about that money, what about that money?” The clerk didn’t respond and Giron started to laugh, saying he was “just joking” while putting the weapon back in his pants. However, police weren’t joking when they arrested Giron on robbery charges.

 

Jamieson Minor had wanted to work at Houston’s Six Flags Splashtown for years and finally got to live the dream this year. With his very first paycheck on June 1st, Minor got to live another dream by getting his ears pierced. Unfortunately, when he returned to work with his newly-pierced ears, he was told to clock out and not return until he removed his earrings. Unfortunately, Minor says the store where he got the piercings told him not to remove them for another five weeks. While Splashtown allows female employees to wear earrings, males cannot and Minor’s outraged mom calls it a violation of her sons civil rights and even called Six Flags corporate offices to demand changes to the policy.

Miami’s 32-year-old Marcus Sakers got into an argument with his dad on Father’s Day. Witnesses say the men got into an argument that turned physical and both fell to the ground. As witnesses tried to intervene, they heard several gunshots. Marcus won’t have to worry about getting into another argument with his dad next Father’s Day as his pop rolled over and said, “You shot me,” before losing consciousness and dying. Marcus will likely spend next Father’s Day in jail as he faces murder charges.

 

Bothell, Washington’s Eli Aldinger was unhappy with his job as a food service worker at McMenamins Anderson School and the direction his life had taken. Deciding he needed some time off, Eli came up with a plan. However, instead of calling in sick, Eli got into his car and began aiming his vehicle at pedestrians. Two pedestrians didn’t see Eli coming and were struck. As he was being arrested, Eli told officers he’d struck the pedestrian on purpose to get out of going to work. As twisted as the plan was, it worked as Eli has been sentenced to 14 years in prison.

 

The mother and stepfather of Thailand’s 29-year-old Sak Duanjan had authorities take him away for treatment because they don’t want to live in fear wondering when he might attack them again. This comes after they caught Sak poisoning the family’s water supply. Why would Sak do such a thing? It seems he came home drunk last Thursday night and started playing a loud video game on his smartphone while his parents were trying to sleep and became angry after his stepdad unplugged the Wi-Fi router.

 

New Port Richey, Florida’s Byron Christianoudis got into an argument with the elderly man he was renting a room from. The argument turned physical as Byron put his landlord in a headlock and scratched his face, leaving lacerations. Deputies from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office eventually arrived and were told that the beef began when Byron announced he was going to take a shower and his landlord asked him not to do so because he’d taken too many already. Byron had to be careful not to drop the soap during his next shower as he was arrested and taken to the Land O Lakes jail.

Andrew Sandson allegedly walked into a Long Island Dunkin Donuts late Sunday evening and robbed the place. Sandson then got into a car and made his getaway and might’ve gotten away with the heist had a customer not noted the license plate. Police traced the plate to an Uber driver, who had unwittingly given Sandson a lift. Of course, Uber keeps a record of passengers’ destinations and Sandon’s next ride was in a patrol car to jail.

 

The Palm Bay, Florida, Police Department says they’ve arrested a man they believe is responsible for a rash of pool float toy thefts in the area. Christopher Monnin has been charged with burglary after about 75 floats were found in his possession.

Pakistani minister of Health and Information Shoukat Yousufzai recently did a press conference that has since gone viral. However, it wasn’t some groundbreaking new policy that earned Shoukat his newfound fame. It seems that the person operating the camera forgot to turn off a cat filter, which left him conducting his press conference with kitty ears. (See here)

Last Wednesday morning, a New Orleans delivery truck driver returned to his vehicle to find 29-year-old Lorenzo Casso inside and rifling through packages. The delivery man asked Casso to leave and walked around to the driver’s side of the truck, at which point the thief pushed him aside and hopped behind the wheel. After a brief struggle, the driver managed to grab the keys from the ignition and lock the truck, trapping Casso inside. The next vehicle Casso was locked inside was a patrol car after he was arrested on attempted carjacking charges.

 

A motorist named Kevin Bacon sideswiped a vehicle on Interstate 91 in Vermont last week. Unfortunately for Bacon, that car was a Vermont State Police vehicle. After hitting the police car, Bacon continued driving for a short distance, before stopping and fleeing on foot. Bacon was apprehended about a mile from the crash scene and he might’ve avoided the wreck had he not been on his phone at the time surfing the Internet for the ‘Screech’s Spaghetti Sauce’ episode of ‘Saved by the Bell.’

 

Prairie Grove, Arkansas’ Andrea Jenkins arrived at the scene of her son’s car accident last Wednesday evening to provide police with his insurance paperwork. Unfortunately, when she did so, officers noticed the aroma of alcohol emanating from her person. Police say she failed several field sobriety tests, but when an officer went to arrest her, she pulled away and began to yell and curse at him. Andrea was eventually arrested and hopefully she’ll get a lenient judge, such as Andrea Jenkins, who’s the Justice of the Peace for Arkansas’ District 10.

 

Tennessee’s Bradford Thacker and John Maxey were boating with another person last Monday night when their friend left them stranded on an island. Luckily, they were found by Deputies from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, who were responding to a call of shots fired.

Thacker and Maxey were arrested for public intoxication, but face no firearms charges.

Michael Pickerel is on administrative leave from his job as a technology specialist with Eastern Michigan University. It seems that Pickerel is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Labor for allegedly failing to pay the employees of his private security company in 2016. However, that’s now become the least of Pickerel’s worries. While examining the Google Drive account he used to save business records, investigators discovered video recordings of a man having sexual relations with one of Pickerel’s female relatives in a room he rented to the guy. Pickerel admitted to secretly recording the pair, saying he had become romantically interested in the tenant.

 

An unnamed woman in a wheelchair fired a Taser at a McDonald’s employee in Detroit on Thursday. Luckily, the woman missed the target, but when police arrived minutes later, the woman was still outraged and began yelling at officers. Police eventually calmed her down and confiscated the Taser and discovered that the woman fired the weapon because she felt the cashier was rude and her order was taking too long. Police say the woman could be charged with felonious assault.

 

Nearly 300,000 people follow Artem Boldyrev’s YouTube channel, Moto Nexus, where he shares motorcycle reviews. In his most recent video, Boldyrev can be heard saying: “Most problems arise due to the fact that I don’t give a ****.” That video turned out to be his last as he died hours later after crashing into a car. Boldyrev might be alive today had he not been steering his motorcycle with his feet while texting.

Pennsylvania’s Kim E. Chandler sued L’Oreal cosmetics for $50,000 after she used their Optimum Salon Care Defy Breakage No-Lye Relaxer. Chandler claimed that the product relaxed her hair so much that it caused it to fall out.

Warren, Michigan pharmacy tech Brahndi Miller has been charged with two felonies after allegedly stealing 2,200 Xanax pills from the Meijer store where she worked.

Another one of those infamous Southern California police chases took place Wednesday night in the city of El Monte. As usual, TV helicopters covered the chase, although they didn’t have to fly very far as the suspect was trapped in a mobile home park. Police had all the exits blocked as the driver of a stolen SUV drove around the park for about an hour. After several spike strip deployments, the chase finally ended when one of the SUV’s tires rolled off into the front yard of a mobile home and the driver was arrested. (See here)

 

On Tuesday morning, motorists in Blaine, Minnesota noticed an SUV driving erratically at around 10-15 mph before pulling into a gas station parking lot, where it was quickly met by police. Before police cornered the driver, he’d hit several mailboxes, clipped a tree and lost part of his front bumper. However, the driver wasn’t arrested for DUI. It turned out that the driver was four-year-old Sebastian Swenson, who swiped the keys to his great-grandfather’s vehicle so he could go buy some candy.

 

 

CUBA GOODING JR. surrendered to police yesterday after an alleged groping incident at a New York City bar last weekend. Gooding has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of “forcible touching” after allegedly grabbing a woman’s breast.

BRITNEY SPEARS has been granted a five-year restraining order against her former manager, Sam Lutfi. The judge in the case determined that Lutfi poses a serious enough threat to Britney and her family that the long-term restraining order was justified. Britney wasn’t in court yesterday, although Lutfi and her father and lawyers were there. Lutfi has to stay at least 200 yards away from Britney and her family, refrain from reaching out to them or make disparaging comments about them.

Utah’s Matthew Paul Mitchell is facing numerous traffic charges including reckless driving, speeding and failure to signal. The charges were filed after Mitchell was seen on Interstate 15 following another vehicle at an unsafe distance and then swerving out to pass before crossing multiple lanes and passing 13 vehicles in about 20 seconds. Mitchell might not be facing the charges had he not recorded himself driving recklessly and uploaded the videos to his YouTube page for the officers to see and use as evidence.

 

Vancouver’s East West Market thought they came up with a great idea to get people to start bringing their own reusable shopping bags instead of using environmentally unfriendly plastic bags. Instead of the name of their store, East West made up plastic bags with embarrassing names such as Colon Care Co-op, Into The Weird Adult Video Emporium, and Dr. Toews’ Wart Ointment Wholesale, thinking people would be too embarrassed to carry them. The store thought wrong as they quickly caught on and now everyone wants the plastic sacks instead of reusable bags. (See here)

 

Tired of her third-grade son being bullied at Greenbrier Elementary School, South Carolina’s Jamie Rathburn barged into a classroom and emotionally confronted his classmates. Rathburn later posted her 6-minute, 44-second video rant on Facebook, which police used as evidence to arrest her on a disturbing schools charge. Not only was mom arrested, but her son likely faces even more bullying than before.

 

Milwaukee’s Cecilia Loya saw a couple of hoodlums trying to break into cars in front of her house on Sunday afternoon and screamed at them to stop. Neighbors heard the commotion and gave chase.

Deputies also found a backpack containing marijuana and Xanax pills in the car, although Jimenez told officers that the cocaine powder on his nose did not belong to him.

 

Two Florida men used a hammer to try to smash their way into the Daytona Spy Shop early Sunday morning. However, after taking 56 whacks at the storefront glass, they gave up and left. The men apparently attempted the break in without considering the spy shop might have surveillance cameras. While those cameras didn’t get a good shot of their faces, they did capture images of their getaway car and the owner believes they may be the same people who were in the shop last week acting oddly.
