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. A verbal argument broke out, followed by Prakash threatening to get all stabby, holding a butcher’s knife to one roomies throat. Fortunately, roomie #2 was able to wrestle the knife out of Prakash’s hand and no one was seriously injured.
Prakash, 47, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
In other news, American Idol wasn’t even on Tuesday night. Dumbass.…
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.…
Albuquerque, NM — Albuquerque police have one person in custody and are searching for two additional suspects in connection with the kidnapping and beating of a woman who ended up getting her pinky finger snipped off over an $80 debt.
The victim, Samantha Hernandez, told police she had been at the Sandia Casino on Friday and needed a ride. She called a couple of friends known only as Mike and Joe, who took her to an apartment complex in southeast Albuquerque. At the apartment, Hernandez told police she saw 41-year-old Kari Pacheco and another man she wasn’t familiar with.
What actually transpired inside the apartment is unclear, but at some point, Hernandez was reportedly thrown into a trunk and taken on a 2-hour drive to a mountainous area. Once there, she was ordered out of the trunk and was forced to undress. The strange man she had seen at the apartment then questioned and beat her, claiming he had a contract on her for $80. Hernandez told police the man stepped on her chest, grabbed her right arm and snipped off her pinky finger with a pair of shears.…
Naperville, Illinois -- What would you do if a security guard caught you smoking in a bar bathroom? Any rational person would decide to step outside to finish that smoke, but not Adam Heard and his obviously equally intelligent girlfriend, Kelly Cihlar.
The 31-year-old man and his 25-year-old girlfriend were having a cigarette in the Blackfin American Saloon bathroom when the security guard entered and told them to take it outside. Hearn decided he had a better idea. He started arguing and began fighting with the security guard. Then, he pulled out a knife and got all stabby. Other security guards stepped in and subdued Heard until police arrived.
The guard must have had some extensive injuries because he had to undergo surgery after being transported to Edward Hospital. His current condition has not been released.
Cihlar was charged with obstruction of a police officer, resisting arrest, battery, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of cannabis.
Heard was charged with aggravated battery with a weapon, aggravated battery with great bodily harm and possession of a weapon by a felon.…
New Orleans, LA – New Orleans police arrested a 10-year-old boy on Saturday, accusing him of stabbing his 15-year-old brother in the back twice with a kitchen knife.
Reports are that the brothers had gotten into an argument after the victim told his brother to quit wrestling with his cousin in fear of one of them getting hurt.
The 10-year-old got pissed and retrieved a knife from the kitchen. When he approached his brother, a struggle over the knife ensued, ending with the 10-year-old stabbing his older brother twice in the back.
No word on the condition of the victim, but his younger brother was arrested and placed in a juvenile facility.
Kid’s got some anger management issues, right? God knows me and my brother got into it from time to time, but the worst I ever did was shoot him in the head with a pellet gun. But that was just a
well-aimed shot accident.…
Louisville, KY – Police have arrested a 12-year-old after they say she and her mother dragged a school bus driver off her bus and beat her.
Police say that on Tuesday afternoon, children were getting off the bus when 30-year-old Chesica White and her 12-year-old daughter got on to confront the driver about White’s 7-year-old son being bullied. She says her son has been bullied all school year and the driver, Johnetta Anderson, is not doing enough to stop it.
Anderson attempted to keep White and her daughter from entering the vehicle, leading to some pushing and shoving. White and her daughter allegedly ended up grabbing Anderson by the ankles and dragging her off the bus on to the pavement. She was able to get back on the bus and call police.
Anderson is being treated for bruises and a possible pulled hamstring and will be out of work for a few weeks. A 5 or 6-year-old who was trying to get off the bus when White and her daughter entered, caught up in the scuffle and is sporting a busted lip and cuts to his face.…
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.…
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.…
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.…
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.…
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.…
