An unnamed Ponte Vedra, Florida man recently met a woman on Tinder and managed to convince her to come to his home. However, Lexus Joshlin Tripplett brought Michael Eric Wheeler with her.

Utah’s 55-year-old Gary Giles must be batty. Gary’s wife, Juanita Giles, says that they would encourage bats to land on their hands to lick their fingers and even walk around in their beds. While she says the bats never bit them, little did the couple know that rabies can also be contracted through saliva of an infected animal.

While marijuana is now legal in Canada, that wasn’t the case back on January 27th. That was the evening Toronto police officer Vittorio Dominelli took part in a raid on a pot shop. Among the items seized was a marijuana-laced chocolate bar, which Dominelli and Constable Jamie Young later ate. About two hours later, Dominelli made a call for assistance, using the 10-33 police code, normally reserved to indicate an officer is in serious trouble. It was soon discovered why the officers were in distress and Dominelli has pleaded guilty to attempting to obstruct justice and resigned from the force, with the judge in the case calling him a “complete idiot.”
Melbourne, Florida police Detective Jonathan Hawk has submitted his resignation. Hawk’s resignation follows a raid on a house suspected of being involved in drug trafficking. A SWAT team member later said that thankfully, the innocent woman who had her home unfairly searched was not “handled and thrown on the ground and cuffed and — and a lot of things that could have happened.” However, the actual drug dealers, who were living in a house across the street, saw what was going on and used the diversion to load things into a van and make their getaway.
Derrick Gilbert went to Florida’s St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport with his 18-year-old son Tai on Friday night to catch an Allegiant Air flight to North Carolina. However, when Gilbert boarded the flight, he appeared to be too drunk to find his seat. When the plane’s crew asked Gilbert to leave the flight he initially refused, but eventually left the plane after allegedly pushing a flight attendant and his own son, who was trying to get him to leave. Deputies arrived to find Gilbert yelling profanities and refusing to leave the ramp from the plane to the terminal. When authorities told Gilbert that if he didn’t leave the airport, he’d be arrested, he responded by saying that he couldn’t be arrested because he was a Sarasota police officer. Gilbert was wrong about that as he was indeed arrested for battery, domestic battery and trespassing.

We often here about people calling 9-1-1 for non-emergencies, such as needing a ride to the store. However, South Dakota’s Rapid City Police Department are actually encouraging people to call 9-1-1.
