ALASKA — Immediately after KTVA reporter Charlo Greene reported on a medical marijuana business during a live 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, she revealed she was the owner of the business and declared, “As for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”
It’s worth watching, not just for her quitting, but also for her shocked co-anchor’s hilarious attempt at a recovery.
Greene was reporting on the Alaska Cannabis Club, reportedly Alaska’s only legal medical marijuana resource that helps connect medical marijuana cardholders with local growers.
Greene is also the president and CEO of the organization. She says she quit her job as a reporter so she could redirect all of her energy toward helping end “a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans.” Amen.
She chose to quit in the way that she did in order to draw attention to the issue of medical marijuana and Ballot Measure 2, the initiative to regulate marijuana in Alaska like alcohol. She says KTVA had no idea she was connected to the Alaska Cannabis Club or that she was going to quit on the air.…Continue Reading
MILWAUKEE, WI — The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee fraternity investigated over sexual assault claims last year, has been suspended after accusations of using a potential date rape drug at a party full of underage kids.
Last Friday, Tau Kappa Epsilon held a party at their off-campus frat house. For $8 you could also receive an access card that would allow you to get free drinks. The catch, according to one girl at the party who ended up at the hospital, “you have to be hot” to get one.
A few hours into the party, campus police responded to reports of people at the party being so drunk that they were unable to walk and were vomiting. Police would find 42 kids under the age of 21 in the basement with either red or black X’s marked on their hands. The fraternity would not explain to police what the X’s meant.
Three women and a male at the party would end up taking a trip to the hospital where, according to a search warrant, one of the girls told police that after consuming some of a drink given to her by a frat member “she had a weird feeling and sensation prior to blacking out which she had never felt before.”
Another girl said she blacked out 30 minutes after someone poured her a drink then moved “the cup under the bar out of sight; after a few moments the male pulled the cup back on top of the bar and gave her the mixed drink.”
The male said he got sick shortly after taking sips from a drink given to one of the girls.…Continue Reading
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL – Renata Congleton got herself into a bit of trouble last Friday after the 27-year-old arrived at an elementary school to pick up a child while having a blood alcohol level five times the legal limit.
Staff at Trinity Elementary School say Congleton was extremely intoxicated when she arrived at the school and tried to pick up the child. Police were called to the school but before they got there, Congleton drove off — hitting two cars in the process.
Deputies would find Congleton at home, sitting by her front door. She reportedly swore at them as they tried to question her before kicking and scratching a deputy while being handcuffed.
Congleton was charged with neglect of a child, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting an officer with violence. Her bond was set at $15,000.
I don’t know what’s in the water in Florida, but it seems to make women get their drink on before picking their kids up from school. Congleton is the fourth Florida woman we’ve reported on who’s done this, and wins the award for being the drunkest.…Continue Reading
Police believe Jones killed his five children, between the ages of 1 and 8, then drove to Alabama where he dumped their bodies on a dirt road in a rural area. The kids had been reported missing by their mother on Sept. 3.
Jones was pulled over at a motor vehicle checkpoint in Smith County, Mississippi. He became agitated when a deputy questioned him about an odor of chemicals coming from his Cadillac Escalade. When the deputy searched Jones’ vehicle, he found chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine and some Spice.
Even worse, officers found what appeared to be bleach, muriatic acid, blood and possible body fluids inside the vehicle. A quick background check on Jones revealed he was wanted in South Carolina “regarding a welfare concern of his children,” who were on a national missing persons list.
It was at this point Jones admitted he’d killed his five children and led officers to their decomposed bodies along a logging road in Alabama.…Continue Reading
EDGEWATER, FL – Briana Buchanan is behind bars on meth manufacturing after her 7-year-old son turned her in.
Buchanan and her son lived with her boyfriend’s brother, Peter, who the boy considers an uncle. Peter said that the boy mentioned his mother had been “cooking something bad” and said he had something he wanted to show him.
The boy brought his uncle to his mother’s car and opened up the trunk. Inside the trunk was some of the boy’s toys and materials needed to use and manufacture meth. Peter immediately closed the trunk and called 911.
“Her son, who’s 7, just told me she keeps bad stuff in her car, and he opened up the trunk, and she has a meth lab in her trunk,” Peter told the 911 dispatcher.
After police arrived and found the drug paraphernalia inside the trunk, they arrested Buchanan on charges of child neglect, possession of chemicals, meth and paraphernalia, and manufacturing and delivery of meth.
Her son was placed in the custody of his grandmother, who plans on enrolling him into school this week.…Continue Reading
ALVIN, TX – Last year we reported on David Barajas, the man who was charged with murder after he allegedly shot a drunk driver to death moments after he fatally struck his two sons. His trial started yesterday.
On Dec 7, 2012, David Barajas’ truck ran out of gas on a rural road yards from his home. He and his two sons, 12-year-old David Barajas and 11-year-old Caleb Barajas, jumped out and began pushing the truck while Barajas’ wife and two daughters remained inside the vehicle.
At around this same time, 20-year-old Jose Banda was driving drunk when he plowed into the rear of the pickup. Caleb and his brother would both die after becoming pinned between the two vehicles. Jose Banda wold die from a bullet wound to the head.
Several witnesses present at the scene of the accident told police that after the crash, David Barajas walked the short distance to his home then returned to Jose Banda’s car. That’s when they heard gunshots. David Barajas was subsequently arrested and charged with murder.…Continue Reading
WEST WHITELAND TOWNSHIP, PA – Police have charged 24-year-old James Myers with cruelty to animals after he allegedly injected a kitten with heroin, choked it with a rope and slammed it to the ground.
Around 5 a.m. Sunday, a patrolling police officer noticed Myers parked in the middle of the street with his car door open. Under the door was a black kitten with a rope wrapped tightly around its neck. The kitten was lethargic, bleeding from the face and had some teeth missing.
A search of Myers car yielded bundles of heroin, hundreds of used bags of heroin, hypodermic needles, rope that matched the one wrapped around the kitten’s neck and a small box of cat shit.
The 8-week-old kitten was taken to a vet suffering from head trauma, where it was determined that the kitten had been injected with heroin. Dr. Jennifer Magilton first thought the kitten would need to be euthanized, but she first tried giving it some Narcan, a heroin antidote.
The kitten, now named Hope, immediately improved and is now expected to make a full recovery.…Continue Reading
WAGONER, OK – Police arrested Lorie Hill at Wagoner High School on Monday after she was found drunk in her classroom and not wearing any pants.
Hill is a newly hired teacher for Wagoner Public Schools and was found by two other teachers slumped over a desk in an empty classroom on the first day back at school for teachers.
“They didn’t know who she was, she was apparently new and was supposed to start yesterday,” Police Chief Bob Haley said.
When police arrived, they found the 49-year-old in principal’s office where someone had given her some shorts to wear. Hill admitted to police that she’d been drinking, and an empty cup smelling of vodka was found inside her car.
Since police could not prove she was intoxicated when she drove her vehicle, Hill was only charged with public intoxication. The Wagoner School District declined to comment on any possible disciplinary actions against Lorie, saying they do not comment on personnel matters.
Parents are, understandably, outraged. “I don’t know, as an adult, I just don’t know how you can be a professional teacher and teaching young people, and then show up drunk,” said one parent.…Continue Reading
Police were called to the home of Ward’s girlfriend at about 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Upon their arrival, they learned Ward and his girlfriend had been involved in some sort of argument, which led to Ward assaulting the woman. When the woman’s friends attempted to intervene, Ward apparently attacked them with a piece of lumber, injuring one badly enough to require a trip to the hospital.
Police arrested Ward at the scene and charged him with assault by contact/family violence and aggravated assault with deadly weapon for the lumber assault on the woman’s friend.
After Ward was transported to the Titus County Jail, officers learned that prior to their arrival, Ward had busted into a bedroom in the home and forced one of the woman’s two children, ages 8 and 9, to ingest an undisclosed amount of meth.
The child later tested positive for meth and was treated at the hospital.…Continue Reading
RENO, NV – Police have charged 24-year-old Jason Brown with multiple counts of animal cruelty after they say he adopted five dogs only to kill and dismember them in his motel room.
Brown was arrested on July 9 after a manager of a Super 8 Motel called police to report some gruesome shit going down inside Brown’s motel room.
He told them that a maid went in the room to clean it, and found bloodstains, dog limbs, drugs and drug paraphernalia inside. The manager told police the maid contacted him, and he found a decapitated brown dog in the room’s bathtub.
While the manager waited for police to arrive, Brown returned but then fled before police got there. Arriving police would check out the room and found four decapitated dog heads inside a small refrigerator.
Two of the dogs were named Fernell and McGee, two Chihuahua mixes given to Brown by someone who used Craigslist to place the dogs up for adoption because they could no longer care for them.…Continue Reading
Dorset, England – In an incident that increased the currently small number of speed boat-related murder convictions, Paul Gerlach and Louis Borzoni were sentenced to life in prison for the murder of aspiring rapper Rico Dardis.
The pair were convicted for an incident that took place May 27th of last last year in Christchurch Bay in Dorset, England. According to official reports, Gerlach, Borzoni, and Dardis were enjoying an alcohol-enhanced day-trip, when the conversation turned heated. One witness claims he heard one the convicted men saying “You are being ungrateful, you’ve smoked all my cigarettes and drunk all my beer.”
This lead to to the two men pushing Dardis off the boat and then running him over, fatally slicing the 30-year-old with the boat’s propellers. The severed parts became entangled in the propeller, which caused the boat to stop working. Rather than calling for help, the two men attempted to recover the body parts and then allowed the boat to drift to shore. Another beach-goer captured a photograph of the two men shortly after the murder.…Continue Reading
Mallory Loyola First Woman Charged Under New Tennessee Law That Criminalizes Drug Use During PregnancyJuly 14, 2014 at 10:43 am by Morbid
KNOXVILLE, TN – Mallory Loyola has made her family proud by becoming the first woman to be charged under a controversial Tennessee law that makes it a crime to take drugs while pregnant.
The 26-year-old was arrested and charged with assault after both she and her newborn infant tested positive for meth. The law allows a woman to be charged with assault if it’s found she illegally used a narcotic drug while pregnant and her infant ends up harmed or addicted to the drug.
Unfortunately for Loyola, this new law just went into effect this month, and she admitted to police that her infant tested positive for meth because she smoked meth just days before giving birth. The charge is a misdemeanor, and Loyola has been released on $2,000 bail.
Lawmakers hope this new law will help deter other women from using drugs while pregnant. “Hopefully it will send a signal to other women who are pregnant and have a drug problem to seek help. That’s what we want them to do,” said Monroe County Sheriff Bill Bivens.…Continue Reading
San Jose, CA — Victor Manzanares, 39, is facing multiple charges after allegedly entering a family’s home and inappropriately touching their two young daughters before attempting to burn their house down.
Officers responded to the home Monday, after receiving several reports of a naked man running rampant through the neighborhood.
While cops were combing the neighborhood, a butt nekkid Manzanares reportedly entered the home through an unlocked door. Once inside, police say, he walked into the bedroom of a 10-year-old girl and got all touchy-feely.
“He came into my room… he kissed my cheek, I thought it was my dad, and then he lied next to my bed and tried to touch my bum,” the girl said.
Not sure what caused Manzaneres to exit the room, but he soon wandered into the living room where a 12-year-old girl was napping.
“I was on the couch taking a nap,” the girl said. “I was in deep sleep when the man licked my face and I freaked out.”
The two girls rounded up their little brother and beat feet out of the house. …Continue Reading
WALKER, LA — Billy and Lana Henry are looking at child cruelty charges after they forgot they’d brought their infant to Walmart and left the baby in the backseat of their car.
Officers responded to the Walmart parking lot after someone called to report seeing an infant locked in the backseat of a car. Police decided to force their way into the car due to the high temperatures.
Police checked the child for injuries and called the Office of Child Services. As all this was going on, the child’s parents – Billy Henry Jr., 35, and Lana Henry, 32 – had exited the Walmart and were walking toward the car.
When questioned, neither of the dumb fucks remembered they’d even brought their kid, and that the baby must have been locked in the car for about an hour. One officer reported that while questioning the couple, they “were unsteady on their feet and had slurred speech.”
Police would learn from the couple that their condition was the result of them taking Oxycodone.…Continue Reading
CROWLEY, TX – A 12-year-old girl is dead after a woman had her ride on top of her car because she didn’t want the girl’s wet bathing suit messing up the car’s upholstery.
Kisha Young, 38, spent June 17 getting drunk at the Creekside Community Pool with the victim’s mother and their six children between the ages of 8 and 14.
When the group left the pool, Young had the kids ride on top of her Chevy Malibu because their bathing suits were wet.
While taking the 1-minute drive home, four of the children fell off the car as Young drove around a corner. Neither Young or the victim’s mother were aware their load had lightened until some teenagers flagged down their car at the end of the street.
Three of the children were treated at the hospital and later released, but 12-year-old Octavia Watkins was admitted with severe head injuries. She never regained consciousness and was removed from life support last Wednesday.
“She was totally unconscious the whole time, so that was my main concern,” said Albert Garcia who found Watkins in the street.…Continue Reading
DOUGLASVILLE, GA – Police have charged 23-year-old Dewey Green with murder after they say he intentionally ran over a pregnant woman.
Police say 53-year-old Janice Pitts was in her Lincoln Navigator with her daughter and grandson when Green repeatedly hit her from behind with his truck while she was sitting at a traffic light.
When Pitts got out to check the damage, Green rammed his truck into her and pinned her body between their two vehicles. Pitts’ daughter, Iesha Davis, says she got out and tried to get Green to back his truck up.
“I’m banging on the window, ‘Please, you’re crushing my mom, you’re crushing my mom. Please, you’re crushing my mom. He wouldn’t look at me, He kept his face straight and kept his foot down on the gas,’” said Davis.
When Green finally backed up, Pitts fell to the road and Green ran over her crushed body as he drove over the median, went across a grassy knoll and ended up sideways across a road where witnesses were able to stop him.…Continue Reading
BILLINGS, MT – Police have arrested 52-year-old Shery Downs on a felony charge of assault with a weapon after she allegedly knifed her hubby in the face because he pissed on the bathroom floor.
When police arrived at the couple’s home, Shery’s 68-year-old husbnad was on the front steps holding a bloody towel to his face. Following a blood trail into the home, police found Shery who seemed to be intoxicated.
