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.…
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.…
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……
Police say that on Friday, 45-year-old Michael Ames entered a South Ogden Key Bank threatening everyone inside with a gun and forcing them into a back room. He fled the scene after bank workers gave him an unknown amount of money he had demanded. Police lost sight of him during a high-speed chase, and Ames used that time to abandon his vehicle and carjacked a woman’s Jeep at gunpoint, only to crash the vehicle a little while later.
That’s when Ames picked the wrong house to break into.
The home belonged to Tyler Grove where he lived with his wife and two children. Grove had grabbed a baseball bat after hearing someone breaking into his home and commenced to give Ames a pretty sound beating. “Tyler was ready with a baseball bat and I heard he struggled all the way until he chased the guy outside,” said neighbor Rob Cowen.…
Winston-Salem, NC – Not much information on this one yet, but police have charged 26-year-old Jacob Andrew Minton with attempted murder after the man reportedly attacked a 2-year-old girl inside Brenner Children’s Hospital early Sunday morning.
Police say the child was at the hospital being treated for injuries she sustained at home when Minton reportedly started beating the child, leading hospital employees to intervene and call police.
Authorities are still trying to determine what brought the girl to the hospital in the first place, and it is not known at this time if the toddler’s original injuries are in any way related to this particular case. Police say that though the child’s injuries are considered serious, she is currently listed in stable condition. Vague, I know, but it sounds to me as if maybe dude was trying to finish what he may have started earlier…
Minton, a friend of the child’s mother, is being held on $400,000 bond.
Santa Monica, CA. – Francisco Gerardo Rodriguez, 25, and Maria Leyva Jasmilet, 26, have been arrested for the alleged torture of an adult male with the mental capacity of a 12-year-old child.
At 12:48 pm on Wednesday, a police officer responded to a call at a local hospital. It was there that he interviewed a 26-year-old Hispanic man who told the officer he had been held against his will and repeatedly assaulted and tortured.
Doctors told the officer that the victim was emaciated and suffered from numerous cuts, abrasions and bruises all over his body, including his genitalia. Upon further review, police found the man had lost between 60 and 80 pounds and had several new tattoos.
Rodriquez was booked for assault with a deadly weapon, mayhem, torture and abuse of a dependent adult – he is being held on $1 million bond. Jasmilet was booked for abuse of a dependent adult. The couple’s two children, ages 5 and 7, were removed from the home by social services.
Neighbors indicated they had heard yelling and screaming from the apartment complex where the suspects lived over the last few days.…
Davon Stewart, 26, got into a bit of an altercation at a party last month at a deaf friend’s apartment. Stewart is deaf but can speak if needed, whereas his friend is deaf but only communicates through sign language.
The two got into a heated argument that escalated after Stewart’s friend poured a bottle of malt liquor on him. As Stewart was being escorted out of the apartment, he pushed his friend’s girlfriend. This is when things turned physical between the two men and when Stewart bit off a part of his friend’s ear (I know this sounds insensitive, but I laughed at the image of the deaf victim’s fingers signing wildly as he was being bitten. – Morbid) .
Stewart fled on foot, but was hit by a Dodge Durango during his escape attempt. He was then taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital Southwest for treatment for a leg injury. …
Corpus Christi, Texas – A man has been arrested, charged with attacking his step-daughter’s boyfriend with a samurai sword.
Robert Salyer, 40, lives with his step-daughter and her 25-year-old boyfriend. On Thursday night, the daughter and her boyfriend were arguing when Salyer decided it was time to step in and made the step-daughter’s boyfriend get out of the house.
Now, let me just tell you that any boyfriend I ever had knew better than to be anything less than perfect when my dad was around. My dad surely would have intervened and kicked some serious ass if a guy was disrespecting me. Unfortunately for the step-daughter’s boyfriend, he was never taught this lesson, as evident by him returning a little while later.
Salyer refused to let his daughter’s boyfriend enter the home, at which point the boyfriend decided he was going to force his way in and started kicking in the front door. Salyer grabbed his samurai sword and went into action on the little twerp, slicing open his upper lip. …
Englewood, FL -- A 22-year-old man was arrested for allegedly attacking his mother with an axe, threatening to kill her, and then forcing her to stay in his bedroom and watch movies with him.
Deputies arrested Robert Christopher Tuttle after receiving a call from his 60-year-old mother who was able to escape from the bedroom. According to the mother, Tuttle had been drinking Thursday night and became aggressive around midnight.
He began destroying items in the house and ultimately took an axe to the oven, refrigerator and a bedroom door. Tuttle swung the axe at his mom but she stepped back, avoiding the blow. Because he threatened to kill the mother if she called police, she obliged and remained silent.
Then, in a bizarre move, he forced his mother to watch movies with him in his bedroom for several hours… all while he held the axe. It wasn’t until 10 am, when Tuttle finally fell asleep, that the mother was able to escape and call police.
Deputies arrested Tuttle, charging him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment.…
VERMILION, Ohio — A 12-year-old at Sailorway Middle School has been suspended for five days and charged with assault after a prank left a pencil lodged in a fellow student’s butt.
The prankster was in choir class and thought it would be funny to position a pencil upright in the seat of another student’s chair right before they sat down. “He thought it would be harmless. He thought it’d break and they’d get a good laugh, but that’s not what happened at all,” said Cpl. Dean Mayer, Vermilion Police Detective.
But if that had happened, you wouldn’t be reading about it here. What happened is the pencil did not break and penetrated the other students’ jeans and got lodged about four inches into his left butt cheek, and got stuck there.
An ambulance had to come pick the kid up and take him to the hospital were emergency surgery was performed to remove the pencil. He’s already back in class with some stitches, but otherwise he’s fine. As for the other boy, he immediately admitted to the prank stating he didn’t mean to hurt anyone, but he’s going to be paying for his dumb decision.…
Chicago – A woman has been charged with pouring boiling water over a 74-year-old woman’s head after inviting the senior over for dinner.
Police say that on Saturday, the older woman had been invited over to dinner by her friend and neighbor, 51-year-old Lynn Baggett. While the victim lay on the couch, police say Baggett began heating up a pot of liquid on the stove.
Once the liquid was brought to boiling, Baggett removed the pot, walked over where her friend was laying, and poured the scalding liquid over her head. The poor woman was able to get into the wheelchair she uses ever since breaking both feet in a car crash, and wheel herself to the lobby where she asked for someone to call 911.
Emergency workers arrived and took her to the hospital in serious condition, suffering from second-degree burns to her face, forehead, scalp, neck, back and shoulders.
No motive has been given for the attack, but it was revealed in court that Baggett has been taking medication for bipolar disorder and depression.…
Albany, NY — Police say 44-year-old Philemon Chavis brutally beat his wife and doused her in bleach before forcing her to call her family and tell them she’d been kidnapped and would be killed if they didn’t pay up.
Early Sunday morning, police allege Chavis grabbed his wife by the hair and repeatedly slammed her head into a concrete wall at their home. He then poured bleach on the woman and continued with the brutal assault, repeatedly punching her in the head and body.
Chavis reportedly forced his wife to call her family and say she had been kidnapped – demanding $100,000 in ransom or she would be killed. After the phone call was made, police say Chavis choked the woman into unconsciousness, dragged her out to his car and tied her up with a seat belt.
The woman’s family was immediately on the phone with police. When officers showed up at the couple’s home, Chavis beat feet down the street – he was caught a few blocks away and was found to have a stun gun in his possession.…
PARKER COUNTY, TX – After the home of 62-year-old Lois Pearson burned to the ground on March 3rd, no sign of her body was found. Further searches of a 10-mile radius around the burned home turned up no additional clues to her whereabouts, and a friend described Lois as a “loner” who rarely left her house and indicated he believed foul play was involved. Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler disagreed on this final point, suggesting that Ms. Pearson ran from the fire and perhaps was injured, but he expressed his department’s intention to keep looking, because, after all, as he stated, “Everybody’s gotta be somewhere.” Brilliant observation, Sheriff! But perhaps more brilliant was the friend’s statement on camera, because Lois Pearson has been found alive in Corsicana…after having been abducted by 58-year-old Jeffrey Maxwell.
It would appear that Maxwell, who previously lived near Pearson, abducted her at gunpoint on March 1st and then returned to start the fire that would burn the home to the ground. Between her abduction and discovery, Pearson was bound and repeatedly assaulted.…
Brooklyn, NY — 16-year-old Zhanna Smsarian was arrested Wednesday after admitting to pouring diluted hydrochloric acid on a classmate’s head in hopes of blinding her.
“During [the class before chemistry, Smsarian] was staring at me and giving me an evil grin,” 15-tear-old Albina Eshimbaeva said. “That made me uncomfortable – somehow I knew something was gonna happen.” And something did….
Police say Smsarian approached Eshimbaeva from behind Wednesday morning and poured a beaker of diluted hydrochloric acid over the girl’s head.
“She was standing behind me – I felt it,” Eshimbaeva said. “I felt something was coming. All of a sudden I feel liquid flowing down my forehead. I thought it was water, until I turned and saw the beaker in her hand that had the acid label. Then my skin started burning.”
A quick thinking teacher flushed the girl’s eyes with water and she was immediately transported to the Staten Island Hospital burn center. Doctors say Eshimbaeva would surely have been blinded if the acid had not been weakened when diluted.…
CONCORD, N.H. — A woman in New Hampshire acquired a couple felony charges after she assaulted a pregnant woman with a stun gun after becoming enraged over her driving.
Police say 22-year-old Carissa Williams was so angry at 28-year-old Corrine Leclair for driving 35mph in a 35mph zone while talking on her cell phone, that she pulled up alongside her and began throwing bottles and other items at her car before going around her.
Leclair, understandably freaked out, called 911 and began relaying Williams’ license plate number to the dispatcher when both women came to a stop at a stoplight. Williams reportedly exited her vehicle, leaving her 6-month-old in the car, and walked back to Leclair’s car.
After kicking the driver-side window, she opened the back door and got inside Leclair’s car while wielding a stun gun. As the 911 dispatcher listened, Leclair begged Williams stop shocking her because she was ten weeks pregnant.
Williams was arrested, charged with second-degree assault and breach of bail conditions on prior charges out of Grafton County, both felonies.…
According to police, Cunningham was a passenger in a vehicle driven by his 55-year-old mother-in-law last Tuesday when he “spat out a sour belch” that reportedly had a foul odor.
When mom-in-law complained, Cunningham got all kinds of offended and claimed he couldn’t help it. An argument ensued…
Cunningham eventually demanded to be let out of the car, and when mom-in-law didn’t pull the damn thing over quick enough, she said her son-in-law reached forward from the back seat and wrapped his hands around her neck. She told police she couldn’t breathe.
Once she managed to free herself and pull over, she said Cunningham exited the vehicle, opened up the driver’s door, grabbed her and punched her in the face and chest. She said he uttered the words, “I’ll kill you, f—— bitch,” before running off.
Cunningham turned himself in Tuesday evening and was booked on charges of battery, intimidation and strangulation.…
Police say the trio was staying at a Days Inn Tuesday evening when the proverbial crap hit the fan.
Prakash apparently flipped out after asking his roomies to flip the channel over to Idol and they refused.

ROCK HILL, SC – 49-year-old Vicki Covington has been arrested and faces assault charges after allegedly stealing her husband’s prosthetic leg and attacking him.
York County Sheriffs were called to the home at 11:24 pm on Sunday evening to respond to an assault call. When they arrived, 53-year-old James Covington claimed his wife was intoxicated and had assaulted him. Deputies could see physical proof on James, such as a cut on his left ear, a scratch on his left ring finger and scratches on his back.
Vicki apparently would “not leave him alone” and had even taken his prosthetic leg away from him. Vicki must have needed a break from all of the fighting so, she stepped outside to smoke. Covington told deputies that he locked the door behind her “to keep her away from him” which left the woman outside with her cigs.
When Vicki realized that her husband had locked her out, she was determined to get back in and decided to break the glass in the door to gain entry.…
