URIE, WY — Joseph Richardson and Paulette Richardson are facing manslaughter charges after they let Paulette’s 16-year-old son drink until he died from alcohol poisoning.
According to court documents, Paulette’s son, Kendal Ball, had been expressing a desire to drink. Paulette would tell police that the boy’s biological father was an alcoholic and she was afraid her son would turn out like him.
In order to stop that from happening, the couple came up with a genius plan to let the kid drink. Joseph would explain later that he was told the best way to stop the boy from drinking would be to let him drink until he got sick.
So on the night July 6, Ball started drinking with his step-father and a family friend. How much the kid drank in a two hour time-span all depends on who you ask.
Paulette said her son drank a few shots of Fireball and a few shots of Jack Daniel’s. Joseph said his stepson drank a few ounces of Jack Daniel’s.…
PONTIAC, MI – Police have arrested 47-year-old Henry Michael for allegedly stabbing his son-in-law after the victim found Michael and his daughter, the victim’s wife, lying naked in bed together.
Police were called to the hospital where a 25-year-old man was brought in suffering from a non-life threatening stab wound to his back. The man would tell police that he had come home at around 3:30 a.m. and found his wife sleeping in the bed with her father, and both of them were completely nude.
When he woke up Micheal, an argument ensued that led to Michael stabbing his son-in-law before fleeing in the victim’s vehicle. After interviewing the victim, police located Michael’s 24-year-old daughter who told them that after going out drinking with her father, they returned home where she passed out.
She said she didn’t know what happened until her husband woke her up, but doesn’t believe her father sexually assaulted her. She was transported to the Haven START Program for an examination before being taken to a relative’s home.…
LINCOLN COUNTY, KY – Police in Kentucky have arrested 44-year-old Michael May after he was caught trying to dig up his father’s grave so he could argue with the dead man’s corpse.
Lincoln County constable Delbert Mitchell noticed a truck parked at the Pilot Baptist Church cemetery at around 10:30 p.m. Monday night and went to investigate. He would find May using a shovel and a pickaxe to dig up his father’s grave.
Mitchell said that when he asked May what in the hell he was doing, May began “hollering out verses” from the Bible and explained that he was trying to dig up his old man in order for his deceased father to go to heaven.
May’s father died more than three decades ago after being beaten to death at a sawmill while drinking with co-workers. According to Greg Haynes, the pastor of Pilot Baptist Church, May explained that his “Daddy didn’t do things right,” and he needed to be dug up in order to go to Heaven.
“He needs to be on the ground.…

One of Ferris’ neighbors called police at around 8 p.m. Saturday night to report she had found Ferris’ twin toddler sons playing in the rain near a lake. She took the 2-year-old’s back to their mother’s apartment, but no one was home.
When police arrived, the found the door to Ferris’ apartment wide open with plywood an bicycles blocking the entrance.
Inside the apartment, all three bedrooms were locked, a bookshelf was toppled over in the middle of the family room, and an unlocked bathroom contained a pile of toys and some toxic toilet bowl cleaner.
Police managed to contact Ferris who told them she was on her way home from work. This turned out to be a lie, as evident by the red wristband she was wearing that showed she’d been drinking at a local margarita festival.
Ferris admitted she’d barricaded her two kids in the apartment so she could go drinking at Margarita Fest with friends.…
Sometime after Giancherio purchased some alcohol from a liquor store and returning home, a neighbor called police to report she just watched Giancherio drive off with her young daughter standing on the driver’s side running board.
The neighbor said the girl was yelling and banging on the window as her mother simply gazed at her daughter and continued driving. The girl eventually fell off the truck and landed in the road. Giancherio simply drove away.
“I went over to check on her and her knees are all cut up, she’s on the curb just crying, and the mom is already gone, just drove off, she didn’t stop or look down,” said the neighbor.
The girl begged the neighbor not to call police on her mother, but they did anyway. When officers arrived, Giancherio had already returned home and parked her truck in the garage.…
BIRMINGHAM, AL – Police have arrested 80-year-old Matthew Moore after he allegedly gunned down his daughter for not buying him alcohol.
The incident happened Friday night when Moore and his 47-year-old daughter, Chrystol Moore, got into an argument over alcohol – Matthew wanted some, and Chrystol refused to go get it.
This pissed the elderly man off so much that he pulled out a gun and shot his daughter multiple times. When police arrived at the home, they found Chrystol Moore dead and Matthew Moore sitting at the kitchen table nearby.
Chrystol’s 13-year-old daughter was in the home at the time of the shooting, but was not harmed. Physically, at least. Mathew Moore was arrested in the death of his daughter and placed in the Jefferson County Jail on a $40,000 bond.
Moore sure is one ornery old fella, but he ain’t got nothin’ on John Wesley Hardin — a man so mean he once shot a man just for snoring.…
HILLSBOROUGH, NC — Chandler Kania, 20, has been charged with three counts of second-degree murder after his drunk ass drove the wrong way on the interstate and killed three people in a head-on collision.
According to prosecutors, Kania went to at least two different bars the night of the crash, and used a fake ID that allowed him to buy alcohol. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student got so hammered that five people tried to stop him from getting behind the wheel of his Jeep Wrangler.
This led to a physical confrontation with one person being knocked to the ground. They were only able to get his cell phone, but they figured this would keep him from leaving – but they were wrong. Kania ended up driving his Jeep on the wrong side of I-85 for at least 6 miles before colliding with a Suzuki driven by 49-year-old Felecia Harris.
Harris, 46-year-old Darlene McGee, and Harris’ granddaughter, 6-year-old Jahnice Baird, were all killed in the crash. Harris’ daughter, 9-year-old Jahnia King, was seriously injured but has since been released from the hospital.…
AUGUSTA, GA – Tabathia Grooms helped bolster a few stereotypes regarding Georgians after she attacked her boyfriend, Carlos Grace, because he declined to have sex with her.
According to reports, the 35-year-old came home around 11:30 p.m. after a night of drinking. She was still fuming because, earlier in the day, Grace had refused to kiss that colostomy bag she calls a mouth.
As Grace sat on a couch, Grooms informed him that she’d went out and “fucked everyone else because he would not fuck her,” then physically attacked him. During the assault, Grooms allegedly scratched Grace on the face, head and neck and bit him on the arm before he was able to lock himself in the bathroom and call 911.
When police arrived, they reported that Grooms was “highly intoxicated” and refused to explain what had happened. She did admit to drinking and threatened to run a deputy over with a baby stroller if he did not move out of her way.
While at the residence, Grooms’ 66-year-old mother took one of the officers aside and told them that her daughter had punched her in the face during her tirade.…
CALAIS, ME — Devon Staples was killed while celebrating Fourth of July with friends after he tried to launch a firework off the top of his head.
The 22-year-old was drinking with friends in the backyard of a home Saturday night, when he got the bright idea to launch a reloadable fireworks mortar tube from the top of his head.
Despite his friends’ warnings not to do something so goddamn stupid and irresponsible, Staples did it anyway. According to Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety, Staples was killed instantly when the firework exploded.
Staples’ brother was only a few feet away when the firework exploded and said there was nothing they could do to help Staples afterwards.
“There was no rushing him to the hospital. There was no Devon left when I got there,” said Cody Staples.
Aside from the Darwin Award nomination, Staples is also the first fireworks fatality in Maine since they legalized them on Jan. 1, 2012. Until that day, fireworks had been illegal in Maine for over 50 years.…
On Friday night, Small was with friends drinking around a rock-lined fire pit in his backyard. By 2 a.m. Saturday, he was alone and somehow managed to fall into the fire.
Although he suffered serious burns to 60 percent of his body, Smalls didn’t think it was worth seeking medical treatment.
““Small managed to stagger into his home, refused medical attention and went to bed,” according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland. His friends ended up calling an ambulance for him several hours later.
Small was taken to the Maine Medical Center in Portland before being transferred to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He would die there Sunday evening.
This brings up one of the most horrifying stories I have ever written on the site, from five years ago. It happened in Arizona where a 45-year-old man and his cousin were drinking while preparing a 3-foot deep fire pit to roast a pig.…
WESTLAKE, OH – Alexandria Mauer and Kenneth Gillespie were arrested this weekend after police found the classy duo tooling around town drunk and naked.
Police were called at 12:22 a.m. Saturday after the two were spotted standing naked outside their vehicle. The caller reported that the couple had returned to the car and driven away, running over a curb and across a lawn in the process.
Police found 24-year-old Mauer in the driver’s seat, naked, drunk, and holding a piece of pizza, while the passenger’s seat was occupied by 33-year-old Gillespie, who also was drunk and naked. He had an open beer between his feet. She’s facing a drunk driving charge; Gillespie is looking at disorderly conduct while intoxicated, open container, and public indecency charges.
Proving himself to be a bit of a cliché, Gillespie pissed in the back seat of the cruiser on the way to the police station.
Mauer was released to a family member but was found wandering down a road (partially dressed this time) after arguing with her ride, leading to yet another arrest and a disorderly conduct charge.…
AUSTIN, TX – Alvaro Benitez and Araceli Mata-Ortiz are facing felony child endangerment charges after police pulled over a vehicle for reported reckless driving to discover one set of drunk parents, a 13-year-old in the driver’s seat, and a 7-year-old girl who was not driving and apparently wasn’t drunk.
At some point after 11:00 p.m. Friday, police were called about a Chevy pickup that was running red lights, weaving back and forth, and driving 25-30 MPH below the posted 70 MPH limit on I-35. Another motorist claimed that the silver truck had almost caused at least three collisions.
According to authorities, the young driver reported that the family had been at Club Vongos, where she observed her parents were too inebriated to drive and suggested that she drive, since she felt that would be the safer option.
As drunk people tend to do, the girl’s parents made a stupid decision and later said something stupid about that decision: as to the former, the parents said they thought it was smart for them not to drive while intoxicated and thus elected to have their 13-year-old daughter (who had little experience operating a vehicle) take the wheel for the 30-something-minute drive home to Georgetown.…
ID – Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office arrested 23-year-old Shariah Whitney after she crashed a car containing herself, her 5-year-old daughter, and a 15-year-old family friend, thus ending an alleged incident of drunken street racing.
As KXLY reports, witnesses reported two vehicles driving side-by-side 70 to 80 miles an hour down a residential road Sunday night.
The so-called street race was terminated when Whitney’s car went off the road, ran over a stop sign, hit the parked car belonging to Rex Hyatt’s in-laws, and came to rest on the lawn of Hyatt’s home.
All the makings of senseless tragedy right here: not just drunken driving but high-speed drunken driving and a car crash. Color me SMH in wonder, because no one was injured.
Whitney’s husband Nathan is disputing the version of events offered by law enforcement, however, claiming that the crash was caused not by street racing but by Shariah attempting to pass a car on a road unfamiliar to her. He further indicated that his wife didn’t have more than two drinks on Sunday.…
Police began receiving phone calls regarding a Schwaub-DeVault driving the wrong way down U.S. 127 at around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday. Despite repeated attempts to get her to pull over, she wasn’t arrested until five miles later after running from her vehicle butt nekkid.
“I know when the deputies started to chase the driver, as the driver exited the vehicle, the person was not clothed,” Clare County Undersheriff Dwayne Miedzianowski said.
When police went went to the rest area from where the pursuit originated, they would find Schwaub-DeVault’s husband, 32-year-old Joshua Devault, and their child. Both of them were naked as well.
The couple were both arrested and charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure and child abuse, while Schwaub-DeVault was also charged with driving under the influence, and a felony charge of running from police.
Investigators still have no idea what happened at the rest area that led to Schwaub-DeVault driving off, or why the entire family was naked.…

According to Dallas police, Carroll and her daughter left the King Spa & Sauna about 10 p.m. Saturday.
Carroll began to run, telling her daughter that the police where after them, and instructed her daughter to climb in a nearby dumpster.
The girl fell asleep inside the dumpster while waiting for her mother to come get her, and woke up 10 hours later. As she began walking back towards the spa, Carroll was calling police to report her child was missing.
Carroll told police that she had drinks at the spa and left her daughter with a friend to “clear her head” and that the refused to return her child. The friend contradicted Carroll’s statements, telling police that she witnessed Carroll leaving the spa with her daughter and that Carroll was “highly intoxicated.”
Police began searching for the child and were alerted by some people at the spa who had located Carroll’s daughter.…
Apoka, FL – Trinity Bachmann, 13, was hit and killed by a car while sitting in the middle of the road throwing a temper tantrum.
The Apopka Memorial Middle School student was returning from the Central Florida Fair in Orlando with her mother, Janice Pedroza, 36, and a group of her friends. Bachmann, a rising member of the Future Farmers of America, was at the fair showing off her pig.
After stopping to drop off one of the kids, they began to fight over who was going to sit in the front seat. Bachmann became upset and walked away from the vehicle telling her mom she would rather walk the three miles home than get back in the car.
Dressed in dark clothing, Bachmann walked into the middle of a barely lit road and sat down. Her mother tried to force her off the road as a car approached, but they were too late.
Jackie Suggs who lives across the street from where the incident took place said, “We heard arguing going on and stepped outside.…
SLIDELL, LA – Police have arrested 34-year-old Brett Flower after they say he poured beer down a 1-year-old boy’s throat multiple times because he thought it was funny.
A witness reported the incident to the state Department of Child Services after they watched it happen at a family gathering.
Police were called and questioned friends and family of Flower and the boy’s 23-year-old mother, Krysten Verdin.
Investigators were told that on several occasions Flower poured beer down the boy’s throat, causing the boy to choke and throw it up.
This would irritate Verdin who, according to a press release, would “become agitated and slap the child on the back of the head, causing him to fall on the floor.’
When interviewed by police Flower, who is not the boy’s father, admitted to making his girlfriend’s son drink beer. He wasn’t trying to harm the boy, he said. He “just thought it would be funny,” said Detective Daniel Seuzeneau.
According to Seuzeneau, Verdin confirmed that her boyfriend had poured beer down her son’s throat, but did not admit that ever hit her kid.…
MUNCIE, IN – Christina Reber was sentenced to two years in prison after she assaulted her ex-boyfriend and ripped off his scrotum with her bare hands.
We first reported on Reber back in 2012, after she entered the home of her 57-year-old ex-boyfriend a few days after he had broken up with her.
After punching him in the head several times, a struggle ensued that lead to Reber getting a handful of the man’s plums and “squeezing as hard as she could.”
The man tried to free his balls from Reber’s grip, but she stayed latched on and began digging her fingernails into his tool bag. The poor son-of-a-bitch was eventually able to free his balls and call 911, but the damage had been done.
Prepare to involuntarily cross your legs, fellas. Responding police describe seeing the man with blood on his shirt, and observed “a long wide tear on his scrotum,” which had been “completely torn loose from his body.”
The man was rushed to Ball Memorial Hospital (seriously) where his nutsack was reattached.…
