When an officer arrived at the location, Martin flagged them down and pointed out the SUV. The officer stopped the SUV, driven by 36-year-old Amina El-Zayat, and had her and her three juvenile sons get out of the vehicle.
Inside the vehicle the officer would find two air soft rifles, both replicas of M4 assault rifles, and one of which was fully automatic that could fire 15 pellets at a time.…
A little after midnight on Sunday, 41-year-old Misty Childs got into an argument with her boyfriend, 45-year-old Lavont Moss inside the halfway-house where Moss lives.
After the argument, Moss went to bed while Childs fixed a pot of soup. Once the soup was boiling, Childs dumped the pot of soup on Moss’s face and torso as he was lying in bed. Childs then fled the scene.
One of the other residents described hearing Moss screaming that Childs had burned him before he fell on the couch.
“He was barely able to breathe because of the pain. He was moaning,” said Ashleigh Ferris.
Wesley Clark, a trained paramedic who also lives in the house, said the injuries Moss suffered were some of the worst he had ever seen.
“His skin, it just looked like someone took his shoulder blades and grabbed the skin and pulled it off,” Clark said.…

Police were called to a beach in Daytona Beach on Monday afternoon where they found 18-year-old Tatyana Allen had used the child to batter her boyfriend after the couple got into an argument.
According to witnesses, Allen was angry with her boyfriend because he would not walk with her to the bathroom. In response, Allen reportedly punched the man several times in the face before grabbing her son by the ankles and swinging him like a baseball bat at the man’s direction.
Allen then dropped the baby face-down in the sand and the boyfriend picked him up. Witnesses said Allen had been rough with the baby and at one point as she walked up the steps to the boardwalk, the baby’s head struck the railing.
Family members corroborated what witnesses told investigators, but refused to provide written statements. Surprisingly, the toddler was not injured, but was taken to a local hospital just in case.…
According to the homeowner, two masked men crept inside his home through a cellar door and fired several shots from a BB gun after discovering his son, 28-year-old Troy Imbody, was sleeping in the basement.

Police were called to a home last month by a man claiming Zingale had just tried to rape his wife in their bathroom. When police questioned the woman, she said she was in the bathroom when a drunken Zingale walked in brandishing a knife while exposing himself.
She claims Zingale put the knife to her neck and threatened to cut her if she did not have sex with him. The woman said she told Zingale they should move to the bedroom so they’d be more comfortable. Once they were out of the bathroom, the woman began screaming for help and alerted other people at the party.
Zingale, who happened to be attending the party with his mother, told police a different version of events. He admitted he’d been drinking, but the entire situation was just a misunderstanding.…
A police officer responding to the home of 48-year-old Loretta Lynn Armstrong reported seeing the woman repeatedly hitting her youngest son in the face.
Armstrong was reportedly upset that her boy, whose age has not been released, didn’t get the right toppings on her Grade D horse meat.
The officer was able to pull Armstrong off of her son but Armstrong was able to break free when the officer tried to cuff her and throw herself on the driveway. She then began screaming and cursing, claiming she was in the throes of a heart attack.

The incident, which was captured on video, reportedly happened on Friday inside 63-year-old Mary Hastings geometry class at Ozen High School.
In the video, Hastings can be seen repeatedly hitting a student in the head while yelling, “because you’re stopping them from graduating you idiot ass.”
“Why you did that,” the student asks Hastings, to which she responds by mocking the boy’s question – much to the delight of the other students in the classroom.
The boy she hit is smiling afterwards, but whether he deserved what he got really doesn’t matter in this situation. Teachers physically assaulting students can expect to lose their jobs, especially if it is caught on video. Just ask Barb Williams.
As expected, Hastings was removed from the classroom shortly after the video surfaced and placed on administrative leave. In a statement released to the press, Beaumont Independent School District said:
The Beaumont Independent School District can confirm that an Ozen High School teacher was arrested today for physically assaulting a student.…
According to reports, 27-year-old Giordanni Osse went to a home Monday night to retrieve clothing that belonged to a female acquaintance.
The three occupants inside – members of the Latin Kings street gang – were not happy to see him.
This could’ve been because Osse is a member of the rival Bloods gang, or because Osse may have broken into the home. That latter detail still isn’t clear but even if he had, Nassau Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said what happened next did not fit the criteria of “reasonable” self-defense.
The home’s three occupants – Johnathan Faneytt, 21; Jesus Maldonado, 22; and Jorge Freire-Romero – punched, kicked and hit Osse in the head with a handgun. They then handcuffed Osse and placed in a bathtub where he was stabbed 12 times with a steak knife.
Police say Osse was then tied to a chair for hours and beat “within inches of his life.” Afterwards, Osse was put in a car and dumped on a street three miles away without his shoes or pants.…
COLESHILL, UK – Brandon Walker, 19, has been sentenced to 18-months in youth custody after he placed a sewing needle in a co-workers drinking straw, sending her to the hospital to have the needle removed from her throat.
The incident happened two years ago where Walker and the woman both worked at Shustoke Farm Barns, a local wedding venue. Walker, described as being a “loud, cocky and boisterous” practical joker, can be seen in CCTV footage playing with the woman’s straw shortly before she took a drink.
The woman ended up sucking the needle through the straw where it became stuck in her throat. She immediately began retching and coughing up blood-stained bile. Unable to talk, she was rushed to the emergency room where doctors would locate the needle and remove it. She was discharged the next day.
Walker initially denied placing the needle in his co-worker’s straw, but his lawyer would eventually tell the courts that her client has admitted to the deed and was “very ashamed” of what he did.…
On February 3, officials at the school the victim attends called Child Protective Services to report they suspected the boy was being abused.
According to an affidavit, the boy is described as being under 14-years-old and with special needs. When interviewed by law enforcement, he told them that his mom and her boyfriend had punished him after he had “put his finger inside the family dog’s butt.”
The boy didn’t get caught doing this, mind you; he did it and then told his mother’s boyfriend, 45-year-old Casey Shackleford, what he did because he wanted to “do the right thing.”
In response to this, Shackleford allegedly grabbed the boy by the hair, pinned him down, and instructed the boy’s mother, 40-year-old Christi Howell, to pour cold water over the boy’s face as he held a towel over it.
After they were done, Shackleford and Howell tied a rope around the boy’s genitals and around his neck. …
The incident happened on December 23, inside a Waffle House where Evans and 37-year-old Brian Mikeals both worked.
On that night, Mikeals got so sick that he was rushed to the hospital where he fell into a four week long coma. Staff were able to determine that the man had overdosed on methamphetamine.
Investigators quickly learned how the meth got into Mikeal after reviewing surveillance footage taken from inside the restaurant. In the video, Evans can be seen taking her coworker’s drink to the bathroom area while he was outside, then returning it without his knowledge.
Evans was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. Why Evans would do something like this to her co-worker remains a mystery as she has refused to cooperate with the investigation.
However, in this video, Mikeals’ sister speculates the motive was because her brother spurned Evans’ romantic advances and refused to work with her.…
Police were called to the Hammond’s home on Valentine’s Day and found John Hammond with “scratch marks on his face, sore ribs and a large knot on the back of his head.”
The injuries, according to John, were from his wife attacking him with a mini baseball bat and repeatedly kicking him in the ribs as he was semi-conscious.
When police asked Kimberly for an explanation, she told them she had watched a marathon of The Walking Dead the night before, then drank eight beers that morning.
She became increasingly upset about it being Valentine’s Day and not having received a present from her husband… so she gave him the what-for.
Police arrested Kimberly on charges of felonious assault and domestic violence. She took a Breathalyzer test while at the jail that revealed her blood alcohol content was .221. She was released the next day.…
