Sunday was picture day for a group of little leaguers at Rogersville Recreational Park. About 70 people, including 20 children, were in attendance. This included 43-year-old Malana White, who was there with her child plus her husband’s three children.
Witnesses say that White had been arguing with 30-year-old Christy Tucker, her husband’s ex-wife, for about an hour. The disagreement supposedly started over who was going to pay for the photos and who would get what photos. This moved in to when Tucker would have her three children, all under the age of 10, returned back to her.
Things then escalated in the parking lot when Tucker loaded her three children in her car. White told Tucker she and the kid’s father were to have them until 6 p.m. and immediately called police to report her children were being stole from her. But before officers could respond to the scene, White took matters into her own hands.…Continue Reading
PALM BAY, Fla. – Dennis Delisle, 48, was arrested while attending a roller skating party after parents witnessed him purposely knocking down young girls while they skated.
Skate Jam is a free family event that is held on the third Saturday of every month from September to May at Liberty Park. Last Saturday, Delisle was there and other parents observed him knocking kids down.
“He was pushing down the children, and it seemed like most of them were girls. Maybe (he did it) for an excuse to pick them up, grope them,” said one parent who confronted Delisle.
Police showed up at the event and arrested Delisle on charges of child abuse and battery. He denies he did anything he has been accused of and told reporters that he did not touch any of the children at the park either intentionally or accidentally.
When asked why all of these children would accuse him of pushing them down, he explained that the children made the accusations because they were jealous of his skating skills.…Continue Reading
MADISON, Ind. — Robert Hensley, 41, is accused of choking a referee at his daughter’s eighth grade AAU basketball game. Hensley, who now faces a battery charge, is the father of a player. His wife, the girl’s mother, is the Switzerland County prosecutor.
Madison County’s eighth-grade girl’s club team squared off in a game against Switzerland County’s team at E.O. Muncie Elementary School Tuesday night.
Police said the incident occurred after a referee made foul calls on two girls playing on the opposing Madison and Switzerland County’s team. Hensley and another parent reportedly left the stands and stepped onto the court to argue the call. When the referee tried to remove the pair from the court, police say Hensley put the referee in a chokehold and said, “Don’t yell at my daughter. Don’t call a foul on my daughter.”
“I went down to one knee and people had me and they were trying to chop his arm, but every time they hit his arm, his grip was getting tighter and tighter,” Coach Michael Cosby said.…Continue Reading
WILLIAMSBURG, KY – Republican state Rep. Dewayne Bunch was taken to the hospital after suffering a critical head injury while trying to break up a fight at the school he has taught at for the last 17 years.
A 15-year-old and 16-year-old were fighting in the Whitley County High School cafeteria Teusday morning when Bunch, a math and science teacher at the school, ran over to intervene. He also ran into a punch that knocked him to the ground where he hit his head, causing him to suffer a severe head injury.
“The juveniles were fighting. Mr. Bunch and two of the other teachers went to break it up. Mr. Bunch ran over to it, ran into a punch that one of the juveniles was throwing, made (Bunch) bobble backwards, hit the floor and he’s been unconscious ever since. He got himself between two young men fighting.” Whitley Sheriff Colan Harrell said.
When paramedics arrived, Bunch was unresponsive and bleeding from the ears. Emergency responders performed a tracheotomy procedure on Bunch before taking him to Baptist Regional Medical Center in extremely critical condition, then transferred to University of Kentucky Medical Center.…Continue Reading
Atlanta, GA — Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Rhonda Cook discovered a bloody knife Monday at a home where a mother and her two children were stabbed to death, prompting police to investigate how detectives missed a key piece of evidence.
DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said detectives thought they had recovered the main weapon they believe 21-year-old Eugene Quatron McCoy used to stab to death his 45-year-old mother, Sheila Irons, and his half-siblings Zion McPherson, 11, and Chasity McPherson, 8. Apparently not…
Cook said she found the second knife — with bright red blood on its blade — under a chair on the front porch hours after police completed their investigation and removed crime scene tape from the home. She had gone to the neighborhood to interview people about the crime.
“There was glass all around the porch, and the knife was laying in the middle of the glass,” Cook said.
Cook, who has been a reporter since 1978, didn’t touch the knife. She called her editor and stayed on the phone with him while she knocked on the door, but no one answered, Cook said.…Continue Reading
Counts was arrested after her husband reported that during an argument on Monday night, Counts struck him ‘multiple times’ on his head with the remote control, and on his arms and head with a telephone, according to the arrest report.
The responding Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy noted in the report that the 50-year-old victim had “visible red and black bruises which were caused by Rita.”
As of Wednesday morning, jail records showed that no bond had been set. She is reportedly being held at the Main Detention Facility in Palm Beach.
Now… I do not want to minimize the plight of the battered husband. Those panty-wastes deserve compassion, too. But a remote control as a ‘deadly weapon?!’ C’mon. If it was taped to the nose-cone of a shoulder-launched rocket, perhaps.…Continue Reading
The incident occurred on March 27 at a game the Heat won against the Houston Rockets at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Police say Ruiz made the unnamed woman catch a cab back to his house in Southwest Ranches for not showing him a little public affection at the game. When the woman finally made it to the house, she was greeted by Ruiz, who she claimed was holding his semi-automatic service pistol. He reportedly chambered a round and paced as the woman packed her bags.
According to the arrest affidavit, Ruiz dumped the woman’s luggage and knocked the phone out of her hand as she tried to call 911. Officer Ruiz then grabbed the woman by her hair and dragged her around the house.
When the woman finally broke free, she ran to a closet with a phone while Ruiz upgraded his weaponry to an AR-15 assault rifle, the report said.…Continue Reading
Sacramento, CA — According to police, an intoxicated Sacramento man tried attacking his pet pit bull with a hammer Saturday, but smashed his friend’s face instead. Police arrested Theodore Saunders, 50, and charged him with felonious assault, animal cruelty, and mayhem for injuring his friend and dog.
Sgt. Norm Leong said the incident started when Saunders and his friend were drinking large quantities of alcohol at a residence. Saunders, for whatever reason, reportedly unleashed a barrage of punches against the pit bull. The assault escalated after Saunders armed himself with a hammer and began swinging it at the dog, while his friend sat nearby. Leong said one of Saunders’ hammer swings struck his friend near the right eye, causing serious damage.
In a jailhouse interview, Theodore Saunders denied hitting his friend or going after his own pit bull Lucy. He insists that the dog started it.
“(My dog) just flipped out and bit me and then I tried to show the dog out the house. Then I just picked up, I don’t know what it was, I just picked up whatever I picked up to get her out of the house,” Saunders said.…Continue Reading
Dunnellon, FL – Abraham McDonald was arrested Thursday, charged with charged with battery on a person over the age of 65, after police say he poured gasoline on his 73-year-old grandfather and threatened to set him on fire.
And what did grandpa do to deserve such treatment, you ask? Grandpa reportedly denied Abraham the satisfaction of lighting a pile of sticks on fire in his backyard.
According to grandpa, Abraham was “out of control” that day, throwing rocks and sticks around the yard. Abraham reportedly collected a pile of sticks and doused ‘em with gasoline in the hopes of setting the pile on fire. Grandpa told him no, so Abraham allegedly poured gasoline on him and threatened to set him on fire. Abraham later claimed it was an accident – grandpa simply got in the way while he was pouring the gasoline over the sticks.
With all this talk of rocks and sticks and fire, one would think we were talking about a 7-year-old in dire need of an ass-whooping, but Abraham is actually 27.…Continue Reading
The fact that Womack was driving behind a We Transport school bus and that some students were throwing things from the bus windows onto Womack’s car is not disputed, says Tim Quinn, Bridgeport Police Department public safety information officer.
Womack also readily admits that, at one of the bus’ scheduled stops, she got out of her car and entered the bus. When she reached the rear of the bus, the police report states that she found one of the girls who was tossing the trash ducking under a seat.
This is where it starts to get fuzzy…
Womack claims that, at this point, she started to yell at the girl under the seat. She says that she was then hit from behind by another girl and jumped by several students.
According to Quinn, officers interviewed the bus driver and several of the students.…Continue Reading
A replay of the clip showing Charlie Sheen kissing Jimmy Kimmel aired in a Quitman County home around midnight on the 24th, and according to his girlfriend, David O’Hara, 47, did not react mildly.
“We were getting ready to get in bed and going through the TV stations. I saw that and said, ‘Oh look at that man, how he’s kissing that man. He’s kissing that man like he’s kissing a woman.’ And he just snapped. He said, ‘I don’t want to see that [expletive]. I’m not a [expletive] gay man.’” she said.
As the fighting escalated, a group of friends heard the screams and went to check on the couple. Police say that’s when O’Hara got a gun and put it to the back of his girlfriend’s head (because a gay man wouldn’t do that!). He then reportedly pointed the gun at a 14-year-old boy in the group of friends (because a gay man wouldn’t do that, either!).…Continue Reading
MEMPHIS, TN – First off, a thank you to Jaded for alerting me to one of the biggest idiots I’ve read about in awhile. The idiot I’m speaking of is 21-year-old Jackson Martin, a McDonald’s manager who was caught on camera beating the snot out of one of his employees.
The video captures teenage employee, 17-year-old Jerelle Gray, reaching for some food and Martin snatching the food out of his hands. When Gray grabs it again and starts to walk away, Martin can be seen putting Gray into a headlock and start pummeling his face. Gray never throws a punch and was left with cuts, contusions and a broken nose. Martin would plead guilty to aggravated assault.
The fight started because Martin asked Gray to work longer than scheduled, unaware that Gray had just worked an over-night shift as a favor to another manager who had also promised Gray a free meal for doing so. Martin, who had never worked with Gray before and was unaware of this arrangement, told Gray he would be fired if he left.…Continue Reading
Palm Harbor, FL — New details are being released concerning the stabbing of a school resource officer earlier this week. And between law enforcement and the kid’s family, there are just two details both parties agree on – the fact that Officer Fridlund was stabbed, and the kid’s name.
13-year-old Kenny Stoltman‘s family seems to think the whole stabbing thing was unintentional. “He [Kenny] said the officer basically got stabbed when the officer grabbed him and pulled him to him,” said his grandmother, Chris Mathews, who has custody of the boy. Kenny reportedly told his grandmother he had the open knife in his hand, but had no intentions of using it on the officer…it just happened. While the first stab may have been explained away as an accident, no one seems to have an explanation for the additional two pokes.
Mathews went on to say that the only thing Kenny could think about after being taken to the floor and Maced was Fridlund’s well-being. “He said, ‘Please make sure he’s okay.…Continue Reading
Miami, FL — When 26-year-old Gerdine Edouard’s 11-year-old daughter was involved in an altercation with another child at school last month, Gerdine figured she’d drag her happy ass over to the school and have a sit-down with school administrators. When she arrived at the school and saw the child that whooped her kid’s butt, she came up with a brilliant new plan.
Police say Gerdine approached the child and demanded a rematch for her daughter. She forced her child to fight, and when it appeared as if the other girl had the upper hand, again, Gerdine reportedly jumped into the mix and smacked the other girl in the back of the neck a couple of times.
“She kept accusing me of stuff,” said the 11-year-old victim. “She put her two hands in my face and was like, ‘Why did you jump on my daughter the other day?’ Then her mom jumped in and hit me two times on the back of my neck.”
The genius now faces a charge of battery for hitting the other child, and two counts of child abuse for her influencing her daughter to fight.…Continue Reading
Albion, WA – 54-year-old Nathaniel Simon is in custody on $500,000 bond after police say he strangled and beat his 46-year-old girlfriend, carved the words, “Do not resuscitate” on her chest and kept her locked in a trailer for three days.
The woman told police it all started on Friday when Simon punched her in the chest, dragged her through the trailer and choked/smothered her into unconsciousness. When she came to, she said, her shirt was covered in blood and Simon’s message was visible on her skin. Over the course of the next three days, Simon allegedly pummeled her some more, threatening to kill her and himself if she went to the police.
When she was finally able to leave the trailer, the woman told her family of the incident and they informed law enforcement. Fortunately, the woman’s injuries weren’t life threatening…she was treated at the hospital and released.
Simon is being held on charges of assault, making death threats and unlawful imprisonment.
Chicago, Illinois — A homeless convict was ordered held without bail Tuesday for allegedly beating and sodomizing another man with a tree branch in Grant Park. Police say doctors had to remove the tree branch, 7″ long, 1/2″ in diameter, from the victim’s rectum.
Records from a cell phone stolen from the victim led police to Cortez Foster, a 45-year-old parolee, after the person he sold the phone to revealed his identity. Foster was arrested Sunday at the Pacific Garden Mission.
The 65-year-old victim was found by a passerby around midnight on Saturday. He was only wearing a sock and a shirt when he was found. The man couldn’t speak and was bleeding from his head, mouth and nose. He had to be fingerprinted in order for detectives to identify him.
Foster admitted to police that he became angry and began punching the man in the head and face. Police say he also admitted the blood on his clothes was from the victim and that he had “used” the tree branch.…Continue Reading
Fort Myers, Florida — Authorities say a 17-year-old girl high school honor student pointed a gun at her mother, pistol-whipped her and forced her at gunpoint to drive to a dealership to buy her a used car.
The Lee County Sheriff’s office said Monday that Rachel Anne Hachero faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, unlawful possession of a firearm by a person younger than 18 and battery.
Hachero is a student at the exclusive Canterbury School in Fort Myers and a member of the school’s Model United Nations team. She ran in the Mountain Dew University of Florida Invitational, and placed 9th in the 2009 Fort Myers Komen Race for the Cure in the 12- to 15-year-old category. She’s also been accepted into several Ivy League schools on scholarships. Not exactly the type of teenager one would expect to read about on the Dreamin’ Demon.
According to the arrest report, it all started Thursday evening when Hachero called her mother and asked her to co-sign for a car.…Continue Reading
According to police, 24-year-old Courtney Smith, 20-year-old Dondea Logan, and an unidentified juvenile walked into the Goodies convenience store last week to purchase a pack of Newports. When Smith learned the price would be $6.25, she allegedly stated “That’s too much (expletive) money!” When the clerk informed her she was welcome to buy the cigarettes at another store, Smith grabbed items from the counter and threw them on the ground.
When the clerk followed the trio outside to write down their license plate number, all three of them began beating on the woman. The clerk told police they punched and kicked her while she was on the ground before getting in their vehicle and leaving. She suffered knots to her head, but otherwise she was not seriously injured.
Police would find Smith and company later and while searching the car they would locate a loaded gun that was reported stolen.…Continue Reading
ELYRIA, Ohio — Here’s a mother-daughter duo who fit right in with the Walmart stereotypes. Police say a pregnant woman and her mother were arrested after one choked and the other threatened a 71-year-old Walmart greeter while leaving the store.
Elyria police say 49-year-old Toni Duncan was asked to show a receipt Saturday when leaving the store. This is standard practice at Walmart, at least the one in my area. Duncan reportedly responded by yelling racial slurs, pushing a cart into the greeter, and grabbing his throat and choking him.
Her daughter, 21-year-old Ashley Jackson, then allegedly threatened to blow up the store. She also indicated to the greeter that he would be dead once her boyfriend found out about the incident. Police say Jackson threatened to punch another employee who came to the greeter’s aid. All of this over being asked to show a receipt… now that’s classy.
When police arrived, the two were found in the parking lot with two small children. Duncan reportedly admitted to choking the greeter, but added that she wanted to press charges against the WalMart employees.…Continue Reading
Louisville, KY — Lida Henry was taken into custody on child abuse charges Friday after police say the woman admitted to biting her 4-month-old child multiple times, leaving bite marks body wide.
Authorities allege Henry has been abusing the child since his birth in November. Aside from the biting, Henry reportedly admitted to punching the child in the shoulder with a closed fist, forcefully slamming him into his car seat and “shaking him to the point where his head flopped forwards and backwards.”
A medical examination of the child revealed multiple broken bones, including rib fractures and a humerus fracture.
Henry, 22, has been charged with assault and criminal abuse of a child. I’d really kinda like to see this bitch shoved into a pit full of bear traps. Or hungry bears, whatever……Continue Reading
