Witnesses said John Daniels, 43, drove his motorcycle into Sportsman’s Bar through the opened front door just before 7 p.m. Saturday and asked if anyone wanted to fight.
While bar employees tried to push the motorcycle outside, Daniels reportedly got off the bike and began fighting with employees and other patrons. Sheriff’s police were called to the bar for ‘a large fight in progress.’
Police arrested Daniels on a battery and disorderly conduct charges
and an additional charge of felony mugshot grimacing. Police also arrested Thomas Hines, 47, who told police that he began fighting alongside Daniels because ‘everyone attacked [him].’
Hines was also charged with battery and disorderly conduct charges. Additional charges against both men for unlawful possession of douchey facial hair and felony resisting middle age are presumably still pending.…Continue Reading
Bicyclist Frank Pavlick, 50, was hit Monday afternoon by the teen driver while riding in the northbound lanes of the Fahy Bridge.
“The … guy didn’t even try to pass me,” Pavlick said. “It was an explosion, literally. The tire exploded, the rim exploded.”
Video shows that immediately after the impact, the car driver sped off. Up ahead was a LANTA municipal bus. The bus driver, seeing the accident behind him, maneuvered his vehicle to stop the fleeing driver. A second driver then boxed him in from behind after checking to see if Pavlick was ok.
Bethlehem Police Commissioner Jason Schiffer and Mayor John Callahan honored the two men responsible for detaining the hit-and-run driver. Those men, Richard Gubish Jr., 43, and Jud Smull, 17, were commended for their quick thinking. Pavlick, the rider, expressed his gratitude to both men.
“These guys, I’ve been waiting to meet and say thanks in public and in private,” Pavlick said during remarks.…Continue Reading
Vincent Clark, 42, had been found guilty by a jury on Dec. 16 for 34 sex-related charges for crimes that occurred between 2006 and 2009.
The victims – who are now between the ages of 8 and 15 – were all at the sentencing hearing. The children had testified that the assaults happened in Clark’s home, in his tractor trailer, and on his all-terrain vehicle.
“These children [are] not who they were meant to grow up as. Their souls are completely different,” a victim’s mother said.
During the trial, a member of the Pennsylvania Sexual Offenders Assessment Board said that Clark declined to participate in his own psychological assessment. She instead used victim forensic interviews, police affidavits, and prior criminal information to determine that Clark suffered from pedophilia that was acquired and/or congenital. This resulted in Clark being sentenced as a sexually violent predator.
Clark’s oldest victim – a 15-year-old girl – reportedly began to cry while addressing the judge at the sentencing hearing.…Continue Reading
Abbotsford police – called to the car wash at around midnight by concerned neighbors – arrived to find the three reportedly ‘sore’ 20-year-olds putting their clothes back on.
“They decided it would be a really good idea to strip down and run themselves [in] the cart through the car wash. Need I say they were intoxicated?” said Constable Ian MacDonald.
The police report noted that the men made the mistake of selecting either the “typhoon” or “super typhoon” mode. Let’s all take a moment to thank the good Lord that the car wash didn’t have the dreaded “hyper-mega typhoon” setting – which is believed to have been outlawed in most Canadian provinces.
After reportedly making sure the men were not injured and after listening to their apologies for what they recognized as a ‘poor life choice,’ police sent the three men home to sleep it off.…Continue Reading
Lakeland, FL - Leonard Richard Filipkowski, 44, the owner of a mobile game arcade confessed to molesting a then-13-year-old boy in his arcade-van in 2010, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release issued Tuesday.
Filipkowski reportedly traveled throughout Central Florida to ‘entertain kids at birthday parties, children’s events and church and school functions.’ His 24-foot-long van reportedly includes flat-screen televisions connected to Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii gaming systems.
Investigators became interested in Filipkowski after getting a report from an out-of-state social-service agency about alleged sexual abuse of the boy. The boy – who had moved out of Florida – later identified Filipkowski and detailed the abuse he received from him in counseling.
As a consequence of the investigation, Filipkowskiwho confessed to giving alcohol to the boy and then molesting him in his “Games-2-U” van. Filipkowski also admitted performing sex acts on another boy – who was 13 or 14 at the time – about three years ago in his home. That boy worked for Filipkowski in his Games-2-U van at the time.…Continue Reading
Lakewood, CO - This is a story that is getting press now because of recent interviews given by the in-laws and the investigation that followed Dave O’Shell killing his wife and then himself after he was accused of abusing his infant daughter. Later tests revealed the baby’s injuries may have been the result of a rare genetic disorder.
Tiffany and Dave O’Shell were Lakewood (Colorado) Police officers who, after meeting on the job, got married. Tiffany, an Army reservist, had attended the University of Northern Colorado studying child physical therapy. William David O’Shell was a National Guard reservist who was working on a doctoral degree in philosophy in his spare time.
“They got married, had the baby. Everything was going great for them,” Tiffany’s father, Paul Cuin, said. “Until all this happened.”
Alyssa was their baby. She was born in the spring of 2008. On the morning of June 16, 2008 – when Alyssa was about 3 months old – Tiffany reportedly noticed that Alyssa cried when her right leg was lifted during a diaper change.…Continue Reading
West Des Moines, IA - An IT worker for Farm Bureau Insurance has turned himself in to West Des Moines Police to face charges of urinating on the office chairs of attractive female coworkers. Raymond Charles Foley, 59, was formally charged this morning.
According to police, Foley worked in the Farm Bureau’s information technology department and had access to all the company’s computers and the employee database.
Farm Bureau officials told police Foley would look up employee photos in the agency’s database. Court documents say that Foley “would pick out the attractive females and then on off-hours, he would come into work, go to their desk, and urinate on their chairs.”
Employees reportedly first started complaining about stains on their chairs in October 2011. Surveillance cameras were installed in February. On March 26, a Farm Bureau vice president told authorities that Foley had been caught on video camera urinating on the office chairs of four female co-workers.
Foley was reportedly relieved of his position with Farm Bureau immediately after the surveillance footage was viewed.…Continue Reading
Portsmouth, NH - According to police, a 52-year-old woman reported that a man who had tortured, raped, sodomized, drugged, and threatened her over an 8-year period as a child approached her in a supermarket and asked her if “she wanted to pick up their ‘affair’ where they had left off.”
This inquiry by Souran Manougian, 81,led to his arrest on 25 felonies.
A police affidavit described a pattern of behavior and manipulation that Manougian – who is known locally as “Buddha Babe” (?!) – is alleged to have used on the victim, who is a relative.
The court documents describe the abuse beginning in 1966, when the woman was 7 or 8 years old and – according to police – include her being forcibly raped and sodomized by Manougian who told the girl it was his responsibility to teach her “how to be a woman.”
Manougian is alleged to have told the victim that he would kill her, her mother, her grandparents, her dog, or “anything she loved if she told the police.” The woman reportedly described Manougian once showing her a badge and saying he was “a special officer” with the city police department and that she “would never be believed” if she told anyone what he’d done to her.…Continue Reading
Provo police say Brad Ray Adams, 36, met the unnamed 21-year-old BYU student Feb. 22 on Craigslist and the student subsequently sent him sexually explicit pictures. According to the police report, the two men also had consensual sex, which Adams videotaped without the student’s knowledge.
According to Provo police, when the student told Adams he didn’t want to continue the relationship, Adams reportedly demanded $260 to destroy the video and pictures. If the student refused, Adams said he would release the pictures and video to BYU officials, the student’s family members, fiance, and LDS religious leaders.
The threat of disclosure to BYU officials may have been seen as particularly troublesome as BYU students are bound by a strict honor code that prohibits students from having pre-marital sex. Although the honor code doesn’t specifically address their male students taking the sausage from men who look like pug dogs, it is presumed that this particular activity would also be met by BYU officials with disdain.…Continue Reading
New Holland, PA - Police in Pennsylvania have charged a 16-year-old girl after she was reportedly discovered to have more than 350 images of herself engaging in or simulating sexual acts on her school issued computer.
The girl also reportedly had additional videos of herself and 13 videos of other underage children engaged in similar behavior.
“[I am] shocked that that could happen in a public school,” stated Carrie Hantranft, a mother of another Garden Spot High School student. “As parents we need to make sure that the teachers are doing everything they can to make sure that the kids are monitored,” added Hantranft.
“I guess I never really gave it that much thought that somebody would have something like that on there,” another mother, Valerie Muttik, commented.
The 16-year-old has been charged with two counts of possessing obscene and other sexual materials. Additional charges against Garden Spot High School parents for felony cluelessness are, presumably, still pending.…Continue Reading
Valparaiso, IN - In an obvious bid to secure a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for drunkenness, a northwest Indiana man was apprehended by police with a blood-alcohol level of 0.552 percent – or roughly seven times the legal limit.
Police say that on Saturday afternoon, a woman reported seeing a man – later identified as James Henderson, 28 – laying on the side of a road. EMS noted that Henderson had several bruises and responding officers reported that Henderson made a “barely-coherent” statement about getting hit by a truck. Police have not yet confirmed whether Henderson was in fact struck by a vehicle.
Henderson faces public intoxication charges as soon as he is released from the hospital. If his release is pending sobriety, he may have some time yet…
It has been reported that Henderson has a ‘history of alcohol-related charges.’ Sadly, it appears that the positive side of his drunkenness has been underreported. Let’s hope that this achievement will change all of that.
Road rage or another example of New York courtesy? You decide…
State police said that Danielle Barker, 32, was a passenger in a vehicle driving on the New York State Thruway Saturday night. A car behind the one that Barker was traveling in was reportedly trying to pass.
A New York State trooper commenting on the incident reported that the driver of Barker’s car would not change lanes and let the trailing car through.
When the car was eventually able to pass, police say Barker, 32, ‘hurled’ a cup of coffee through an open window of the passing car. Apparently unable to catch a simple cup of coffee, the coffee instead landed on a passenger in the vehicle.
Police pulled over the car Barker was traveling in and charged her with criminal mischief and harassment. The driver of the other car was ticketed for following too closely.…Continue Reading
Noblesville, IN - According to Fishers (Indiana) Police, if the school bus is a-rockin’, don’t come a-knockin’. This after they determined that sexual intercourse occurring on a school bus between a 13-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl – both students at the Indiana School for the Deaf – was ‘consensual.’
On February 1, the two children were being transported on a Nobleville School’s bus. Although two adults on the bus – the driver and a bus aide – did not notice the sexual activity, it was captured on the bus’ video surveillance camera. The adults did eventually realize what was going on and, after bringing it to a halt, reportedly delivered the children as planned.
Immediately after the incident was reported, Noblesville Schools released a statement. Among the standard damage control tripe was this:
“The children involved are safe and have returned to the classroom. The two adults assigned to the bus in which the incident occurred have been removed from active duty pending further investigation.”
Fishers police conducted that investigation.…Continue Reading
New York, NY — Police are still looking for this charmer suspected of groping an 11-year-old girl inside a Gramercy Dunkin’ Donuts on March 7.
At about 11:30 a.m. on that day, police say the man allegedly approached the girl, touched her inappropriately and then immediately left the scene.
The suspect is described as being between 50 and 60 years old with short gray hair and weighing “as much as 400 pounds.”
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly is asking for the public’s help in catching the suspect. A very brief surveillance video of this freight train leaving the station can be seen here.
“He was in a store and he approached this young woman and grabbed her and touched her inappropriately,” Kelly said last week. Kelly added that the girl “didn’t suffer any injuries in the incident.” Well… not physically, perhaps…
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.…Continue Reading
Anderson, IN — The citizens of a southern Indiana county are breathing a collective sigh of relief that Republican Councilman David McCartney is (still) on the job. This after McCartney revealed that a string of sexually explicit emails he sent to a female colleague were part of a ruse he devised to expose corruption.
The interest in the Councilman’s emails began with a heated debate over taxes in February. This led to taxpayers requesting access to email records for the Madison County Councilmen and the County Recorder. While reviewing the emails for discussion related to the tax, taxpayers were surprised to find sexually explicit emails between McCartney – who is married – and a female assessor from another county.
“You are too sweet, just so happens you taste sweet as well.” McCartney said in an email dated Feb. 21.
My first inclination – as, I believe, many others – would be to overlook his scintillatingly erotic banter and leave the attention to the investigators looking into the matter. Sadly for McCartney, though, it appears the public’s willingness to ignore his transgressions evaporated with his claim that the email above – and the rest of his sexually-charged exchange – were not personal but, rather, part of an elaborate scheme to uncover corruption in Madison County.…Continue Reading
Troy, NY - Police say that Thomas McMartin, 56, made their job a bit easier after he photographed himself while installing a hidden camera in a women’s locker room at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
On March 8, a woman reportedly noticed something strange on the ceiling of the RPI women’s swim team locker room. She contacted RPI authorities. According to court documents, Troy police detectives investigating the case found the hidden camera to contain – before a collection of photos of victims – a photograph of McMartin placing the camera in its hidden location.
“The camera took a picture of the defendant in the process of mounting the camera,” said Captain John Cooney of the Troy Police Department.
As McMartin worked at RPI in maintenance, he wasn’t hard to find. RPI said that McMartin’s duties would not have placed him in the locker room for any reason. RPI has since fired McMartin.
Police said that it was unclear how long the camera had been set up. Cooney said that police are in the process of notifying the “umpteen” women that are on the recordings.…Continue Reading
Bridgeton, NJ — In response to presumed claims of police brutality by local news media, the Chief of Police in Bridgeton New Jersey has declared as justified the use of pepper-spray to subdue a woman at a 7-Eleven. Police took the opportunity to provide additional details of the tense situation that existed at the time of the incident.
Bridgeton Police Chief Mark Ott said that a panic alarm was activated a 7-Eleven on West Broad Street at 3:05 a.m. An
armed response team officer was immediately dispatched to the scene.
The responding officer reported that – as he pulled into the parking lot – he saw Brittany C. Glanville, 25, ‘wing’ an item at the head of the clerk on duty. The police report lauded the intended victim by saying “with quick reflexes the clerk was able to snatch the item out of the air and avoid being hit.” As the officer began to enter the store, he described Glanville attempting to climb over the counter to reach the clerk. She was subdued and arrested.…Continue Reading
Phoenix, AZ – Sergio Velderrain, 31, was arrested by Phoenix police faster than you can spell D-U-M-B-A-S-S after admitting to drinking Four Loko and then urinating on his 4-month-old son’s face and body.
The baby’s mother, Jennifer Velderrain, told a local news reporter that she woke up after hearing what sounded like running water.
“I looked over and he was in the corner peeing all over [our] son,” said Jennifer.
Jennifer Velderrain said she jumped out of bed and grabbed their son, Greyson, who she said was choking because Velderrain had peed on his face and mouth causing his airway to be blocked. Jennifer Velderrain said her husband then told her “now he has something to remember his dad by.” You can see a photo of the little pee-soaked snookums here.
Jennifer Velderrain said that she immediately called 911, telling her husband “He would have something to remember too for a long time – that he did that to his son.”
Police arrested Sergio Velderrain after finding him at a nearby apartment.…Continue Reading
Waterbury, CT - Catalina Reyes, 54, was arrested after police say a baby was found hidden in a home daycare center crawlspace during an investigation of overcrowding. The D’D shocker… the baby was alive and unharmed.
According to reports, the Department of Public Health received a report that Reyes’ center was overcrowded. On March 14, an inspector was dispatched to the center to investigate. After a four-hour-long investigation, the inspector reportedly heard crying that could not be ascribed to the children identified to be in Reyes’ care.
The source of the crying?! …a 6-month-old baby who was reportedly hidden behind a locked door in a basement crawlspace so that Reyes’ center could meet ratio during the inspection. Police said the child – who was strapped in a car seat – had no supervision, food, or drink throughout the time of the inspection.
In an apparent indication of the importance of convenient childcare when compared to, say, the health and well-being of their children, some of Reyes’ clientele have come out in support of her efforts.…Continue Reading
Banks, OR – Lawrence Staley, 48, was arrested after ballistics testing linked him to a breakfast sandwich that struck a Forest Grove Jack In The Box employee in the back of the head. Well… that and just about everyone in the restaurant saw him throw it.
The melee reportedly began when drive-thru customer Staley - enraged upon realizing that his curly fries cost more than regular fries – entered the restaurant to complain. Capt. Mike Herb the Forest Grove Police Department spokesman, said that the employee explained the price difference and gave Staley a complementary order of regular fries in addition to the curly fries that he already was holding.
Clearly unsatisfied, Staley reportedly, “reached into his bag, grabbed a food item [of unknown caliber] and pitched it at the employee.” Staley missed. According to reports, Staley then produced a loaded Breakfast Jack sandwich (283 calories, 11g fat, 4g saturated fat, and 16g of protein) and “launched it at the employee.” This time, luck would not be with Staley’s intended victim.…Continue Reading
