PALMETTO, FL. - I was trying to stay away from any more Florida stories today, but I couldn’t pass up the title. A man has been charged with battery after he folded a 66-year-old woman into a fold-up couch.
According to the Palmetto Police Department, 53-year-old Mark Foreman went to the home of his ex-girlfriend and asked to use the bathroom. While in the home, Foreman allegedly pushed his ex-girlfriend’s mother on to a fold up couch in the living room, then proceeded to fold her up inside it.
The report does not state how long she was in the couch, but the woman was taken to the hospital suffering from minor wrist and back injuries while Foreman was arrested and charged with battery of a person over 65. He is currently being held on $2,500 bond.…Continue Reading
WASHINGTON – The parents of a 6-year-old girl are upset at their school district, accusing them of covering up an incident in which their daughter’s school bus driver was captured on video jerking their daughter to the floor by her backpack.
The driver, Dan Taylor, can be seen yelling at the kids in the bus to sit down. At one point Ashley Reavely stands up to talk to the kids sitting behind her. It’s then that Taylor grabs her backpack and jerks her backwards off her feet. While she lays on the ground, he berates her and tells her to go sit down…all while the bus is still moving.
Moments later, the still frustrated Taylor can be seen stopping the bus and yell at another kid, possibly putting his hands on him. I’m all for student safety and can understand the driver’s frustration at kids not sitting in their seats, but Taylor seems to be wound a bit tightly, and maybe the impressive, behind the back snatch-and-grab was a bit extreme.…Continue Reading
Calvert City, KY — After receiving reports of two small children wandering along I-24, state troopers responded to the area and found a 2-year-old child lying on the inside edge of the westbound lane. The child had a large laceration to the back of the head. Walking in the opposite direction, a woman carrying a 5-year-old child. The woman was later identified as the mother of the children – 29-year-old Cynthia Palmer.
Palmer told police that she and her children were traveling to Fort Campbell, TN., when she began hallucinating from the bath salts she had snorted earlier in the day. The hallucinations reportedly led her to pull off the roadway and exit the vehicle with her children. As she struggled to carry them both, she apparently dropped the younger one on his head and continued walking, leaving him behind.
The 2-year-old was transported to the hospital for treatment, the 5-year-old was taken into custody by Social Services, and Palmer was booked on charges of assault, wanton endangerment and public intoxication.…Continue Reading
Glenwood, IL — Prosecutors say 38-year-old Hugo Dominguez and his girlfriend are facing aggravated domestic battery charges for routinely chaining his 13-year-old son to a dryer and beating the boy with a multitude of items.
The alleged abuse was brought to light last week after police received a call from Brookwood Junior High School. When officers arrived at the school, they found the teen to be suffering from a large laceration to his left elbow, bruising on a large portion of both arms, lash marks on his lower and middle back and marks on his lower legs.
The boy told police his father kept him chained to the dryer most nights and ordered him into the garage before school each morning. The teen claimed to have been beaten by both his father and his live-in girlfriend with items ranging from a broken ax handle to a bamboo back scratcher. He also told police his father recently got all stabby with a knife.
A search of the couple’s home revealed the items in question, as well as a chain attached to the washing machine in a laundry room.…Continue Reading
The most recent arrest was on Tuesday after school administrators called the Orange County Sheriff’s Office after his latest attack on teachers, who arrested the special education student and charged him with battery.
The boy has been arrested for biting and hitting teachers, running from the school, throwing objects and chasing other children around while telling them he was going to kill them. No one has been seriously hurt during any of these outbursts.
The boy’s mother says he doesn’t act like an idiot at home while other parents are shocked that the kid has been arrested and why something better isn’t in place to help the child. I’m also going to go out on a limb that the person who pondered the latter would be singing a different tune if this kid had jabbed her kid in the face with a pencil.
School administrators say they have no choice but to call police whenever a student threatens another student with death, runs off campus or physically attacks teachers.…Continue Reading
Police were called to Lot’s home Monday afternoon and first made contact with the victim. The teen, nursing a sore arm and sportin’ a battered head, told officers that he and his mom had been arguing over a sandwich.
Lot apparently requested that the boy eat his sandwich at the table in the dining room instead of in the living room. When the teen refused, the woman threatened to smash his television to bits and kick his disrespectful ass to the curb. Her threats fell on deaf ears.
Frustrated, the woman reportedly grabbed a hammer and whacked the boy on the arm before pummelin’ him in the head a bit with her fists. Police say she also bit the boy on the wrist.
When questioned, Lot and her granddaughter told police the teen was both rude and belligerent in his refusal to follow house rules.…Continue Reading
Michael Wayne Edwards Jr., 28, made his debut here at the D’D in August of last year after he was accused of squirting semen on a woman in a grocery store parking lot.
Two weeks after his arrest, investigators linked him to a similar incident that occurred outside of a Michael’s craft store in November of ’09. In addition to those two cases, police say three more women came forward claiming to have been splattered by Michael’s spooge.
Charged with two counts of second-degree assault, Michael appeared in court in November and pleaded guilty to the charges. On Thursday, a judge sentenced him to three years in prison, but suspended the sentence and gave him three years probation instead.
Michael’s attorney claims his client is a law-abiding and churchgoing member of the community, and his actions were the result of misplaced anger after breaking up with a girlfriend.…Continue Reading
Sacramento, CA – When I posted the video of a FOX news crew being attacked by a mob of mourners outside a California IHOP, I only did so because it was a slow news day. Also, I thought the chick in green was the most annoying person ever and the way reporter John Lobertini used his mic against the angry crowd was hilarious. He was like a fairy waving a wand.
I didn’t have much of an opinion on it because I didn’t know what words were exchanged between the crew and the crowd that had gathered at an impromptu memorial for a man that had been shot and killed there earlier that day.
But I did think that at least some of those people involved would be charged with dragging camerawoman, Rebecca Little, to the ground by her hair and then kicking her while she was down. But to date that has not happened and a growing number of people want to know why — including the people who started the obligatory Facebook Page.…Continue Reading
Durango, CO — Paul Andrew Kausalik, 61, was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of drunk driving. That’s not what earned him a spot here at the Dreamin’ Demon, though…he earned his 15 minutes of shame by allegedly spitting his own feces on the face of the arresting officer.
The alleged shit-spitter was pulled over on February 11, after Officer Chad Langley observed him taking a right without using his turn signal. After making contact with Kausalik, the officer detected the aroma of alcohol on his breath. Though Kausalik denied being under the influence, he reportedly blew a .142, almost three times the .05 legal driving limit in the state of Colorado. Kausalik was placed under arrest and transported to the cop shop for a formal breath test.
Upon arrival at the station, Kausalik asked to use the facilities. Officer Langley reported that he was forced to enter the shitter to wake the man twice, telling Kausalik that he couldn’t stay in the restroom all night to avoid the breath test – he needed to either take the test or choose a refusal.…Continue Reading
Santa Ana, CA — Some of you may remember Michael Lallana, we featured him back in August after he was accused of ejaculating into a co-worker’s water bottle. There was no doubt of the man’s guilt, DNA tests confirmed the spunk belonged to him, but many of us were left asking, “Why?”
Well, Lallana’s case has finally made it to trial. Jurors yesterday heard Lallana’s taped confession, in which he explained why he felt compelled to pollute that poor woman’s water on two separate occasions.
In an interview with Orange Police Department detectives last year, Lallana admitted that he did it because the woman was attractive and because her lips had touched the bottle in question. “It was the closest I could ever get to someone as good looking as that without tampering with my marriage or hurting anyone,” he said. “I saw her water bottle and I did it. For me, it’s a release. I think about my wife.” Lucky lady, huh?
He told police he never thought she would actually drink it.…Continue Reading
Phoenix, Arizona – Back in 2009, we reported on 50-year-old Faleh Hassan Almaleki, the Iraqi immigrant who was charged with running over his daughter because she had become too “Westernized.”
Yesterday, a jury found him guilty of second-degree murder, aggravated assault and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident.
Defense attorneys tried to argue that Almaleki was simply trying to spit on his daughter, 20-year-old Noor Almaleki, when he accidentally swerved into her and her boyfriend’s mother in the Arizona Department of Economic Security parking lot.
Noor would remain in a coma for two weeks before dying from her injuries.
After striking his daughter, Almaleki abandoned his vehicle in Mexico, then flew to Britain. You know, all the things a father does when he accidentally hits his daughter with a Jeep. Luckily he was denied entry into the country and was sent back to the United States.
Authorities say the Almaleki was enraged at that Noor had refused an arranged marriage, went to college, and had a boyfriend he did not approve.…Continue Reading
Louisville, KY — Robin Scott, 50, is looking at some time behind bars after police say she threw boiling hot water on her fiancé. Her legally blind fiancé.
Called out to the couple’s home on a report of a domestic disturbance, police first made contact with Scott’s fiancé, 61-year-old Thomas Maddle. The man was sportin’ a cut on top of his head, swelling in his face and severe burns on his arms. Maddle told police he and Scott were in the middle of an argument when she retrieved a pot of boiling water from the kitchen and tossed it on him.
Help me out here… how is it possible that these crazy fucks always seem to have a pot of boiling water at the ready?
Scott was booked on second-degree assault charges and Maddle was transported to the hospital for treatment of second-degree burns.…Continue Reading
Naples, FL — Hersha Howard was arrested on assault charges early Sunday morning after reportedly beating another woman’s ass over a box of Girl Scout cookies. But these weren’t just any Girl Scout cookies, Demonites…we’re talking Thin Mints!
Police say Howard entered her roommate’s bedroom that morning and accused the sleeping woman of eating her cookies. The victim denied it, claiming she fed the cookies to Howard’s kids who were up, and hungry, at 1 a.m. She then reportedly offered to pay Howard $10 for the cookies. Apparently in no mood to haggle, Howard refused the cash and got busy with the bitch slappin’.
As the two struggled, the victim’s husband managed to pry Howard off his wife, allowing the alleged cookie thief to escape the bedroom. Armed with a pair of scissors, police say Howard chased after the woman, following her down the stairs in a “threatening manner.” She soon traded the scissors for a board and commenced to beating the woman with it.
The fight spilled into the kitchen, where the victim’s husband intervened once again.…Continue Reading
Sacramento, CA – Want to see what happens when a news crew intrudes on an impromptu memorial for a man who got killed in an IHOP parking lot? You’re in luck. The following is raw video of some angry mourners attacking reporter John Lobertini and photographer Rebecca Little yesterday as they, along with other news crews, were covering the shooting death of a 27-year-old man earlier that day.
Not really a vicious attack, but had it not been for some level heads you could see how that could have turned out a lot worse than it did. John Lobertini really needs to go take some fighting classes or something. The way he wielded that microphone reminded me of the way some little girls throw when playing softball.…Continue Reading
Police say the incident occurred at his mother’s home earlier this month. According to Harding’s mother, Mettie Cartwright, the man grabbed her by the throat, pushed her to the ground, punched her in the face and applied painful pressure to her neck with his hand. She told police that her son held her neck so tight she had trouble breathing.
While he had her down on the ground, he reportedly used his free hand to reach inside the woman’s mouth and yank out her upper plate. Harding then fled the home with the teeth. Police said a witness was able to back up the woman’s claim.
Harding was arrested, charged with injury to a disabled person and is currently being held in the Harris County Jail without bond.
You just can’t make this shit up….…Continue Reading
Yorktown, NY — I’ve shared stories in the past of people beating their parents and grandparents, but lo and behold some people go even further up the family tree. Let’s take 26-year-old Lisa Slater, for example.
During a domestic dispute with her 81-year-old great-grandmother, Slater reportedly grabbed the elderly woman by the hair and slapped her across the face. Then, in an attempt to prevent her from calling the police, she pulled the phone off the wall and took the victim’s cell phone away. (I know, I am just as surprised as you are that an 81-year-old has a cell phone.)
Lisa Slater was arrested on Feb. 16 and transported to police headquarters. Slater is charged with second-degree attempted assault, a felony; and fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. She was arraigned and remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.…Continue Reading
Summerville, SC — How many times has this happened to you? You’re driving along and come up behind a group of kids walking down the middle of the street. No…not walking, ambling. You honk once or twice. Nothing. You rev the engine a bit. Still nothing, except for maybe a snotty look and a few choice words from one of the disrespectful little jackwagons. If you live in my neighborhood, you may even get a peek at the punks shit-stained boxers as he drops his saggin’ pants a few more inches down his butt.
If you’re anything like me, you imagine hitting the gas and sending the little fuckers flying right outta their baggy-ass jeans and into the ditch. If you’re anything like 34-year-old Amy Lynn Stewart, you just do it.
At about 8:30 Thursday morning, Stewart reportedly found herself behind one of those ambling roadblocks as a group of middle schoolers made their way to school. Though she honked her horn several times, the kids refused to yield. Sooo, police say she plowed through the group, hitting four of ‘em: one 14-year-old, two 13-year-olds, and one 12-year-old.…Continue Reading
Lincoln, NE — When Kristin Renee-Walz’s husband showed up in the emergency room Friday night with knife wounds to his elbow, forearm and knee, he reportedly told medical personnel that he was a sleep-eater and must have injured himself while sleep-slicing himself a piece of cake. It could happen, right?
Wrong. Police didn’t buy the flimsy excuse and arrested Renee-Walz. Authorities seem to believe the woman armed herself with a KA-BAR knife with a 5″ blade and proceeded to get stabby after hubby refused to take her out. She ultimately left a deep, 2-inch cut on hubby’s right elbow as well as 1 1/2-inch cuts to his forearm and knee. Weird….she doesn’t look crazy. oO
Renee-Walz, 40, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony.…Continue Reading
