Houston, TX – A drunk pregnant woman in Houston is facing multiple charges after she stumbled into a tattoo parlor looking to get pierced.
Police say that at around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, 20-year-old Stephanie Santana, who is 7-months pregnant, pulled up to a tattoo parlor and stumbled inside to see how long it would take to get a piercing.
Santana needed it done in a hurry because she was a responsible, drunk, pregnant woman driving in the early morning hours with her 1-year-old daughter. Leaving her child unattended in the car for too long would just be bad parenting.
The employees, noticing she was drunk, told her that they would not be able to help her and told her to get out of the store. Police were called after an employee discovered the child in the car and mommy passed out in the driver’s seat with the car idling and the door wide open.
When police arrived, they found Santana still sleeping in the idling car with her daughter and woke her up.…Continue Reading
Hickman, an apparent mooch, told police he and his brother had argued about Hickman’s lack of financial contributions to the household in the month and a half he had been staying there.
In his statement to police, Hickman claimed his brother and the mother of the two boys called him names and accused him of being “slow and stupid.”
Hickman apparently decided he had had enough of their bad-mouthin’ and decided to move out. Before he did, though, he went and proved ‘em right….
“There was a bleach bottle in the kitchen,” Hickman told police. “I took the bleach and I poured it into a milk container that was in the refrigerator.”
In addition to fouling the milk, Hickman also admitted to pouring bleach into a bottle of mouthwash in the couple’s bathroom.
After drinking the spiked milk on Thursday, the boys, ages 1 and 3, became violently ill with severe vomiting and diarrhea.…Continue Reading
Silverdale, Wa – A Washington state daycare service is in hot, soapy water after one of their daycare workers used a cleaning chemical to clean the face of a 5-year-old boy.
The boys mother, Heidi Dietrich, says that her son Silas Gholston was chemically burned after a teacher’s aide at the Silverdale KinderCare facility scrubbed his face with a dry eraser filled with a cleaning chemical. She was reportedly trying to make Silas more presentable for a class portrait by removing the temporary Chuck E. Cheese tattoos Silas was wearing on his cheek.
It worked pretty well as the tattoo was removed from the boy’s face but replaced with some nasty chemical burns. When Dietrich arrived at the daycare and saw her son’s face, she was outraged.
“He had swollen marks all over his face and there were white pieces where it was like a blister,” said Dietrich.
She also stated that it was apparent the teacher knew they had messed up, but that KinderCare tried to downplay the incident. …Continue Reading
Ossining, NY - A New York state kung fu grandmaster and retired police officer has been sentenced to 7 years in prison for having young female pupils tug on his genitalia during martial arts lessons. Hiiiiya!
Prosecutors said four girls aged 6 to 11 reported that Frank DeMaria, 68, had them ‘grab, squeeze and pull’ on his genitals during lessons. DeMaria, a retired Westchester County police officer, defended his methods in court – insisting that he was teaching the young girls to “get rid of the modesty” and learn to kick and slap their attackers in the groin. He further insisted his methods were not an excuse to be fondled.
“There is no holding of genitals — it’s a slap,” DeMaria testified. “I was doing it to help them save their lives.”
The jury, possibly confused about the concept of life-saving sexual assault, convicted him of sexual abuse, sexual conduct with children and endangering children. He was subsequently sentenced to seven years in prison. DeMaria will also have to register as a sex offender when released.…Continue Reading
DELTONA, Fla. - The parents of a senior at Deltona High School are outraged after their 17-year-old son had an asthma attack at school and the school nurse would not let him use his inhaler.
Sue Rudi got a call from her son’s school letting her know that her son was having trouble breathing. When she arrived and was taken back to the nurse’s office, they found her son, Michael Rudi, on the floor.
“As soon as we opened up the door, we saw my son collapsing against the wall on the floor of the nurse’s office while she was standing in the window of the locked door looking down at my son, who was in full-blown asthma attack,” Rudi said.
Michael said his inhaler was confiscated on Friday after the school dean found it in his locker. Even though it was still in its original packaging with his name on it and directions for its use, it was taken away because his mother had not signed the proper form for him to have it.…Continue Reading
Fort Wayne, IN – We just had a story about some Florida grandparents driving drunk while pulling their granddaughter behind them in a toy car, now we have a pair of morons in Indiana driving drunk with four kids strapped to the hood of a car.
Police were called after witnesses watched 29-year-old Aaron Stefanski and 29-year-old Jessica A. Clark leave a liquor store and proceed to use a tow strap to tie four children, ages ages 4, 5, 6, and 7, to the hood of their car before driving off.
A police officer would pull Stefanski over after observing him driving the car a few blocks away from the store with the children still strapped to the hood.
“I was only going to drive around the corner,” said Stefanski, whose blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. “I thought they would like it.”
He was arrested and charged with three felony counts of neglect of a dependent, felony operating a vehicle while intoxicated and four misdemeanor counts of criminal recklessness.…Continue Reading
CULPEPER, VA – The other day we had a commenter in one of our dog stories relay a story of someone shooting a dog after it had tried to attack a baby. It was a real hit with our resident animal lovers.
Coincidentally, we now have another story involving a dog who bit a baby, and an owner who shot it immediately afterwards. (*puts popcorn in microwave*)
An infant in Virginia hasn’t even been breathing air for a month when the family’s Jack Russell terrier decided to use the 20-day-old as a chew toy. The dog had gotten into the child’s bassinet while the mother took a nap.
Luckily the baby’s father returned home as the attack was in progress, but the dog had already bitten off the infant’s ear. The child was rushed to the hospital to treat multiple bite wounds to the buttocks and to have the ear sewn back on. The infant is currently in stable condition.
Lillian Leo, who raises and sells Jack Russell terriers, says she will not sell the dogs to families with small children.…Continue Reading
Iowa City, IA – Despite what others may say, I derive no pleasure from kicking someone when they’re down. Sometimes, as in this case, I choose to feature certain individuals purely as a public service announcement.
Sort of like Crazy Ralph, but instead of warning people away from cursed campgrounds, I’m warning them of the dangers of certain drugs. All in the hopes I can keep one person from getting busted using them in a pharmacy bathroom with their 4-year-old child present.
That’s exactly what happened to 30-year-old Tiffany Lewis the other day inside a Iowa City pharmacy. A witnesses told police that Lewis requested syringes before disappearing inside the pharmacy bathroom with her toddler for several minutes.
When she came back out, she was obviously under the influence of something and asked where she could dispose of used needles.
When police arrived on the scene and tried to question Lewis, she attempted to conceal a Crown Royal bag behind her back that was found to contain a metal spoon blackened with residue, a used needle and a substance believed to be heroin.…Continue Reading
KENNER, La. – Police are looking for a woman who, after getting caught shoplifting, Tased a mall security guard before abandoning a baby in the parking lot.
It all happened Saturday night at Esplande Mall after an employee at Gymboree watched a woman stealing items from the store as she pushed a baby boy in a stroller.
The employee confronted the woman, along with a security guard, and was in the process of calling her manager when the woman shot the guard with a stun gun and took of running while pushing the stroller.
She was pursued into the mall parking lot where she jumped in a vehicle and fled the scene — leaving the baby in the parking lot.
The 2-month-old baby was taken into protective custody until his mother, Stephanie Johnson, came forward and told police that the woman who abandoned her baby at the mall was the child’s babysitter, a woman named Brittany London.

Ryan Moody was rushed to the hospital suffering from bite wounds to his face and head, then airlifted to another hospital in Little Rock for surgery. According to his mother, Amber Moody, their nine-month-old pit bull attacked Ryan in the front yard.
Police have since learned that Amber adopted the pit bull from the Humane Society last March. I didn’t know this, but the Humane Society normally doesn’t adopt out pit bulls to families with young children.
Amber was able to get around this technicality by simply putting, “none”‘ in the section of the adoption form asking for the number of children in her home. But some chick at the Humane Society wants to remind everyone that it’s not the breed as any breed of dog poses a threat to young children.
“If a dog is sleeping and the child goes and jumps on it, it doesn’t even know who jumped on it.…Continue Reading
CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands – A Virgin Islands mother may face criminal charges after she was caught driving with her newborn baby zipped in her purse.
The woman was pulled over for a cracked windshield on Tuesday. While asking for her driver’s license, the police officer heard a baby crying but couldn’t see a baby or car seat in the vehicle.

EMTs arrived on the scene and transported the baby girl to the hospital for evaluation. There’s been no reports on her condition. The mother was transported to the hospital as well, where other officers brought her a car seat to use.

BELLEVILLE, IL — A 12-year-old boy is breathing a sigh of relief after his adoptive parents are arrested and charged with torturing him by making him eat screws and do over 1,000 push-ups as punishment.
The oddly similar looking couple’s entertainment was brought to light after the boy confided in his elementary school nurse that he was being abused at home. After closer examination, the boy was found to have bruises on his back, legs and arms which sparked an abuse investigation.
Investigators state that the boy’s most recent torture session started before school when the boy haphazardly ate a cookie in a less-than-tidy manner. James Jennings, the boy’s stepdaddy, found crumbs in the kitchen and feared his dog would get sick by eating the cookie crumbs and, in turn, handled the situation as any clear-headed adult would.
He allegedly pulled the boy out of his room, beat the boy with a wooden paddle, made him eat the cookie crumbs off the kitchen floor along with some loose screws, then forced him to do 1,000+ push-ups on his knuckles.…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
SEATTLE, WA – No charges are expected to be filed after a 3-year-old boy shot himself in the head with a gun he found in a car while his family stopped for gas.
The incident happened after a couple stopped for gas about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday and left their 3-year-old boy and infant daughter in the car.
The father, who has a concealed weapons permit, stashed a pistol under the front seat before getting out to pump gas while the mother went inside the convenience store.
While they were both out of the car, their 3-year-old managed to climb out of his car seat, retrieve the gun, and then shoot himself in the head. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. The couple’s infant daughter was not injured.
Detectives questioned the parents and have called the shooting nothing more than a tragic accident and do not expect criminal charges to be filed.
Honestly, I’m ok with that simply because I don’t think you could put this father in a hell any worse than the one he is in currently.…Continue Reading
Mom Tells Police That Sex Toy Found During Child Abuse Investigation Is For ’15-Year-Old Girlfriend’March 10, 2012 at 10:17 am by kniption
During that visit, police asked Guadalupe’s daughter to show them a belt that the child had claimed Guadalupe had used to hit both her and her brother.
According to a criminal complaint filed in the case, the child went to a closet to retrieve the belt and – upon opening it – ‘reared back’ and told the officer she had seen “something disgusting.”
Inside the closet, police describe finding a sex toy. When police asked Guadalupe about the device, she reportedly told them that ‘she used it with her 15-year-old girlfriend.’
Bzzzzzzzzzt. Wrong answer.
According to court documents, Police immediately contacted the Lackawanna County district attorney’s office and were advised to pursue an arrest warrant against Guadalupe for statutory sexual assault.
Guadalupe granted officers written permission to search her home. The sex toy – along with the packaging from several other sex toys that she said she used with her girlfriend – were reportedly taken into evidence.…Continue Reading

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Police have arrested a woman after she was busted using her 10-year-old daughter to shoplift from a Kentucky Target.
Last Saturday, security guards at a Target watched as 29-year-old Tiffany K. Foster, along with her 10-year-old daughter and another woman, concealed over $600 worth of merchandise under some jackets in a cart.
Once the cart was loaded the loot, they had the girl push the cart out of the store. The security guards were able to stop the girl outside of the store, but Foster and her accomplice took off — leaving the child behind to take the rap.
Investigators were able to track Foster down at her home and ordered her back to the store. She denied knowing anything about the stolen merchandise, unaware that her daughter had already told police they had planned on shoplifting before they entered the store, and that she had helped her mother steal items from other stores in the past.
Foster was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking and abandonment of a minor, increasing the chances that her daughter will live up to her last name.…Continue Reading
The 22-month-old boy was apparently crying and unsteady on his feet when his father picked him up for visitation on February 15. Dad had the boy seen in the emergency room, and was more than likely expecting doctors to tell him the kid had an ear infection. Instead, doctors told the man the kid was sh*tfaced.
As previously stated, the 45-pound child’s BAC was .097 – the legal limit in the state of Iowa is .08.
When police made contact with Kreiner later that day, they learned she, too, was intoxicated. Police say Kreiner’s BAC was .251. And after failing to explain how her son got hold of the alcohol, one of her other children stepped up to the plate and told police the toddler “drank pop and got sick.”
Kriener is now being held in the Johnson County Jail in lieu of $ 20,000 cash-only bail.…Continue Reading
Stover, MO – Thomas Presley and his unidentified girlfriend are both in police custody after police say they attempted to conceal the beating death of the woman’s toddler by staging a hit and run accident.
Presley apparently told authorities he had stopped his vehicle along Highway 135 for a bathroom break early Thursday morning, when the toddler, identified as 3-year-old Blake Litton, darted into the road and was hit by a car. Presley claimed the car fled the scene.
Blake’s death was initially reported as a hit and run, but after further investigation, authorities essentially called bullsh*it on the man’s story. No skid marks were discovered at the scene, police say, and Blake’s injuries, which included violent trauma to the head and torso area, weren’t consistent with a car accident.
“We have determined the child was assaulted at a home in Stover, resulting in his death,” said Morgan County Sheriff Jim Petty.
Sheriff Petty also has reason to believe Presley told the child’s mother what really happened to her little boy, and she was fully aware of the staged hit and run, but played along “to keep him out of jail.”
Presley, 21, is being held at the Morgan County Jail pending formal charges of second-degree murder.…Continue Reading
Police learned of the incident after responding to the home on a well-being check. And, according to one source, the child was still in the dryer when deputies entered the home. Another source, though, claims Bayly admitted to having placed the kid in the dryer earlier that day. Either way, the kid was supposedly tumbled at some point.
No word on how long the kid was fluffed, but police were unable to find any visible injuries. Police say the toddler was released to his mother, who wasn’t home when deputies arrived.
Bayly was arrested on a misdemeanor child endangerment charge and quickly bonded out, but was immediately rearrested on a felony domestic violence charge. He was apparently convicted on similar charges back in 1999, after assaulting a 5-year-old family member.
I can’t stand the racket a heavy coat makes in the dryer, the sound of a child bouncing around in there would drive me insane(er).…Continue Reading
