Little Rock, AR — Police are investigating the death of Dexter Williams (FB), whose body was discovered in an empty bathtub next to a sleeping TV meteorologist. According to police, Williams, 24, was found dead early Monday inside the bathtub – naked and wearing a silver dog collar-style chain around his neck. KARK-TV weatherman Brett Cummins reportedly was asleep and lying next to him at the home of Christopher Barbour, 36, who made the discovery.
Maumelle Police spokesman Lt. Jim Hansard said that traces of blood were found in the bathtub. Lt. Hansard said police are awaiting the results of an autopsy and toxicology tests conducted Tuesday on Williams.
Barbour reportedly told investigators that – at around 8PM on Sunday – Cummins brought Williams over to Barbour’s house where the three drank and snorted illegal drugs. Barbour also reportedy said that Cummins and Williams got into the bathtub in his bathroom at around 10PM and continued to drink, according to local press accounts.
Reports say that when Barbour found the pair in the bathroom at around 8AM the next day, he shook the snoring Cummins and the two of them then tried to wake up Williams.…Continue Reading
According to the arrest report, an unnamed individual was sitting on a barstool on the sidewalk nearby when it happened. Police say that person had to leap from the stool and “barely escaped being struck.” Lee then, allegedly, drove away.
“Barely” appears to be the correct word. According to police, they later located Lee with a stool embedded into the grill of his truck.
According to the arrest report, Lee’s license was expired, he couldn’t show proof of insurance and smelled strongly of alcohol. In what appears to be an admission of guilt, police say that Lee also told them this was his fourth DUI. Police confirmed this through computer records.
Lee, in fact, was out on a $5,000 cash bail from a past charge when this incident occured.
Lee was charged with wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failure to maintain insurance, operating a motor vehicle on a suspended license, operating a motor vehicle without proper registration plates and violating the conditions of his release.…Continue Reading
SANTA ANA, Calif.— A man was arrested and charged with child endangerment after police say he threw his crying 7-year-old overboard while arguing with his girlfriend on a sight-seeing cruise.
Sloane Briles, 35, was on the 42-foot “Pavilion Queen” with his girlfriend and his two young sons from a previous marriage. They were with approximately 85 other people enjoying a 90-minute sight-seeing tour that goes past the homes of celebrities like Shirley Temple and John Wayne.
Witnesses say that Briles, who appeared to have been drinking, began arguing with his girlfriend and his 7-year-old son. Witnesses began to get angry with Briles as he started smacking the boy around while telling him he needed to toughen up.
When the boy would not stop crying, Briles informed him if he didn’t stop he would throw him overboard. If the passengers were upset with Briles before, I cannot imagine how they felt about him as he followed through with his threat and tossed the crying boy in the water 5-ft below.
Someone on the boat immediately tossed the kid a life ring and Briles jumped in to help his son, but another boater got to him first and pulled him out of the water.…Continue Reading
This was not a typical bar fight, though. This time – after one of the men got the upper hand – he reportedly administered a beatdown that was described as “barbaric.” There isn’t much doubt, either. The whole thing was recorded on a security camera mounted on the front of the club.
According to police, Laurence Richard McGinn, 28, confronted an unidentified 31-year-old victim outside a popular nightspot, Funkybox, at 6:20am on Saturday – just after the club closed. Liverpool licensing officer PC Stuart Moore described the fight like this:
The footage shows a fight between two males. The victim and the assailant could be seen brawling in the street. Both males fall to the floor and there’s a struggle. A second male appears to be protecting the people [fighting] to make sure the fight continues and the assailant starts reigning blows [on the victim].
There are nine consecutive punches while he lies on the floor.…Continue Reading
An 18-year-old member of the U.S. Ski Team got himself into a little trouble the other day after he drunkenly pissed on the leg of an 11-year-old passenger during a JetBlue flight to New York.
Witnesses say that during a red-eye flight from Oregon, Robert Vietze, of Warren, Vt., got up and staggered five rows behind him before pulling out his junk and pissing on a young girl’s leg.
Vietze had to be separated from the child’s father, a Stage 4 cancer patient, who had left the girl alone while he correctly used the bathroom and returned to find Vietze pissing on his daughter’s leg.
“F- -k that kid. I don’t want him near my family!” the understandably enraged man reportedly yelled.
Vietze admitted to law-enforcement authorities that he had consumed more than eight alcoholic beverages before he relieved himself on the girl and that he didn’t realize what he was doing.
Vietze was initially issued a federal summons for indecent exposure, but federal prosecutors dropped the case, possibly because the girl’s father refused to let her be interviewed by cops.…Continue Reading
Woodlands Hills, CA – Jani Lane, the 47-year-old ex-lead singer for the hair band Warrant, was found dead in a California Comfort Inn hotel room on Thursday night, while somewhere in England, Keith Richards slept like a baby.
A cause of death has not been released at this time, but the man has a history of alcohol issues. He pleaded no contest to misdemeanor DUI in 2009 after crashing into a parked car and he spent 120 days in jail for a similar incident in 2010.
I could not tell you how many times I wished for this man’s death when his grinning mug was prancing around MTV in his white leather. I also could not describe to you how ecstatic I was the day grunge had kicked the hair bands’ sorry asses off of television and radio.
It’s been over 20 years and I still think Warrant blows bloated corpse cock, representing pretty much everything I hated about that genre of music. While I’d still rather receive a blow job from a weed-eater than have to listen to a compilation of hair bands’ greatest hits, I quit wishing for their actual deaths a long time ago.…Continue Reading
Fort Walton Beach, FL – Lon Allen Groves, 40, was arrested after reportedly pushing his wife to the ground and holding a 9mm handgun to her head during argument over which of their grandchildren was ‘the favorite.’
According to an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s arrest report, the woman’s son walked in and saw Groves holding the semi-automatic pistol to his mother’s head. He grabbed his younger sibling, got themselves safely outsde the home, and called 911.
When deputies arrived, Groves allegedly walked out carrying an AR-15, semi-automatic rifle, the loaded pistol and a second magazine. A brief standoff with Groves was reported to have occurred.
This was presumably while Groves argued with police over whether the Gator program was stronger than the Georgia Bulldogs. Able to resolve that question without an apparent need to kill, Groves put down his weapons and was arrested.
Groves was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, battery, kidnapping, and firing weapon while under the influence.…Continue Reading
East Lancashire, UK - Stephanie Knight, 19, has been convicted of luring two teenage girls with the promise of a night of clubbing that instead became a gang rape by “her boys.” After the promise of a night out, the two 16-year-olds were driven around, provided alcohol, and then brought to an abandoned house.
Knights “boys” – brothers Amjad, 34, and Shahid Hussain, 37, and their cousin Tanveer Butt, 39, (pictured left to right) reportedly raped one of the girls repeatedly throughtout a night in December 2009 while the other teen was held captive. Amjad Hussain then raped both girls as he drove them home, prosecutors told the court.
As a part of her defense, Knight denied there was any agreement for the sexual assaults to take place. The prosecution countered that Knight, whom the girls had known only for about one week, was heard to say “got them” in a mobile phone conversation naming the girls when discussing the evening.
According to the court, Knight said she first met Amjad Hussain six months earlier when he pulled up beside her in the street and asked for her mobile phone number.…Continue Reading
Bay City, MI — Due to prior convictions, Jeremy K. Haire, 29, could get 15 years in prison for allegedly stomping his fiancée’s Yorkshire terrier, Missy, to death.
Saturday night, Haire’s fiancée, Kayla Stepanski, 21, brought Missy into the Bay Regional Medical Center. She told a police officer there that she and Haire had been to a golf outing earlier that day and that Haire ‘had consumed quite a bit of alcohol.’ On returning to their home, Haire reportedly began punching and shoving her, she said.
Stepanski told the officer that when she went to call 911, Haire yanked the phone cord from the wall. In response, she called to Missy, picked her up and began to leave.
At this point, Haire reportedly pushed her knocking her over a baby gate. This casued Stepanski to drop the 2-pound dog. Haire then allegedly stomped on the animal and yelled, “Now your dog is dead!” according to court records. Stepanski said that she picked up her now-dead dog, ran outside and got in her car.…Continue Reading
Louisiana – A man made of every negative Southern stereotype has been arrested after police found him passed out in his car with his 8-year-old son driving.
Billie Joe Madden, 28, was intoxicated early Sunday morning, and sleepy to boot. Unfortunately he was in the process of traveling to Texas from Mississippi with his two young children.
Fearing it may be unsafe for him to attempt driving in this condition he enlisted the help of a designated driver…his 8-year-old son. (I have a feeling I just gave him way too much credit and he really just wanted to drool off his stupor)
Louisiana troopers were alerted by motorists calling and saying there appeared to be a child driving a truck down I-12 . Others were alarmed by the erratic driving, although reports state the kid was maintaining the 70mph speed limit which would make him a better driver than 50% of the ones on the road here in South FL. [85% percent of SC drivers here in NC - Morbid]
The boy pulled over when police turned on their lights and he was found unharmed along with his 4-year-old sister in the backseat.…Continue Reading
Salem, IN – John Newcomb, 38, a member of the Seymour, Indiana police force and School Resource Officer was arrested for OWI Wednesday night around 10:30PM.
This, reportedly, after a crash that occured while he was driving a pick up truck pulling the Seymour Police Department DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) trailer. Oopsie.
“I grabbed the phone and called 911,” said nearby resident Scott Robbins. “The damage to the truck and the way it looked wrapped in the tree, he had to be traveling so fast.”
Indiana State Police are investigating. Indiana State Police say Newcomb was driving through Salem, Indiana on Main Street when he crashed.
“He side swiped a vehicle that was legally parked on the side of the roadway,” said Sgt. Jerry Goodin of the ISP. “After striking that vehicle, he went on and struck a tree.”
“He was sitting on the wall out of the vehicle, holding his head,” said Robbins’ wife, Tina Robbins.
Newcomb, who refused medical treatment after the crash, looks as though he may have needed some.…Continue Reading
Bridgeport, CT — Juliette Dunn, 29, was arrested last month after witnesses at a local park flagged down a couple of officers to complain that a mother was forcing alcohol on her children at the playground.
Dunn and her companion, 33-year-old Lisa Jefferson, were spotted sitting in the grass near the playground with two young children next to them. As officers approached the gruesome twosome, they noticed an empty 40-ounce bottle of Steel Reserve beer on the ground beside Dunn’s 4-year-old son. A baby bottle laying next to Dunn’s 10-month-old daughter contained a dark liquid that smelled like booze.
Witnesses reportedly told police they watched as Dunn handed the 40 to her son and demanded that he chug-a-lug. Afterwards, witnesses said, she called the boy an alcoholic.
The children were taken to the hospital where it was determined they both had alcohol in their system. While being examined, the 4-year-old reportedly told a social worker he “likes Natural Ice beer and Budweiser, but doesn’t like the taste of Dog Bite.” The infant also tested positive for cocaine.…Continue Reading
The neighbors of 27-year old Mindy Stephens called 911 after she was reportedly wandering the streets, trashed, banging on people’s doors and windows. She was yelling about some keys being stolen while saying her kids were better off without her.
When police arrived, they would find two 7-year-olds in her home as well as a 4-year-old girl who had seen better days. She was rushed to the hospital after being found laying unresponsive on a mattress in front of a fan. She was drenched in sweat and had a temperature of 103. (*tries not to get earwormed by Hot Blooded and fails miserably*)
They would also find the girl’s urine on the floor next to the mattress and her vomit on a nearby couch. These bodily fluids just added to Stephen’s home decor efforts that included dog shit laying around and smeared into the carpet that was already littered with bugs, piles of clothes and cigarette butts.…Continue Reading
Orlando, FL – Elvin Garcia was taken into custody Saturday evening after a neighbor called 911 to report seeing the man’s 18-month-old child sipping beer from bottles and cans scattered across the front yard.
“There were bottles around the front porch and he was just picking them up, drinking out of them,” said eyewitness Debbie Robinson.
Garcia had apparently passed out, leaving Junior to fend for himself. Neighbors claim the child was alone outside for hours.
“They [police] could see him [Garcia] in the trailer there with his legs hanging out the door…just passed out I guess,” said Robinson.
After waking Garcia from his drunken slumber, officers placed him under arrest. The 28-year-old man is now facing charges of child neglect.
The boy has been taken into custody by DCF, which said the boy was living in “deplorable conditions,” and the Juvenile Justice Center will now determine who will take custody of the child.…Continue Reading
A 14-year-old girl was found dead the morning after hosting a sleep-over at her house in which she and a few other girls drank alcohol.
Takeimi Rao hosted a sleepover at her house last Saturday night. After her mother had taken her and her friends for hamburgers and returned back home, the girl’s tried drinking vodka, possibly mixed with soda. Sometime early Sunday morning, Rao’s mother woke up to the sound of two of the girls puking. They did not tell her that they had been drinking, and blamed it on the food they had eaten earlier.
An hour after she had helped the two girls and got them back in bed, she was woke up by another girl and her daughter puking. By 9 a.m. Sunday morning, two of the girls had already been picked up by their parents and another was taking a shower.…Continue Reading
Brackenbridge, PA – Last year, one of our forum members posted a story about Christa Logue. She’s the 39-year-old mother who crashed her minivan while driving drunk. The crash killed Joshua Gibson, her 14-year-old son, after he was thrown from the vehicle.
Logue would be charged with vehicular homicide after it turned out her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. Toxicology results would also show she was under the influence of methadone and Wellbutrin. While awaiting her November trial for killing her kid and free on her own recognizance, she was arrested again on July 1, accused of driving drunk yet again.
Police say she ran a stop sign, drove 45 mph in a 25 mph zone and drifted in and out of a traffic lane almost running up on a sidewalk. When police pulled her over and approached her car, they say she attempted to cover up a half-empty can of beer. She failed three sobriety tests and admitted to police she had been drinking and taking anti-depressants. She was arrested and charged with drunk driving and other driving-related offenses.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, Florida – I’ve lost a lot of things while drunk, but I can honestly say I never misplaced my infant. My car, my mind and sometimes my dignity, but never my kid. That’s not the case for one dad in Florida who did just that, and now he’s facing child abuse charges.
Robert Deforest, 25, and his girlfriend, Rosie Bullock, got plastered at a Fourth of July party when they got into an argument over who was sober enough to drive. Bullock took the car keys away from Deforest, who in turn took their 7-week-old son and walked downstairs.
When Bullocks followed a little later at around 9:30 p.m., she could not find Deforest or their child. She was eventually able to contact Deforest via cell phone who informed her he had lost their baby. Bullock called police before riding around looking for her son with her sister.
Shortly after midnight, a man walking downtown heard a baby crying and found Deforest’s baby lying in the rain outside a vacant apartment.…Continue Reading
Wausau, WI — Thomas O’Neil, 47, was arrested late Monday after he entered a neighbor’s garage and defecated on the floor while naked, according to the Wausau Police Department.
Police were called at 10:30 p.m. for a report of a naked man inside a woman’s garage. The woman who called police said that she heard the door between her garage and home open and slam shut and her dog barking. The woman then looked into the garage and saw the man, Wausau Police Lt. Mark Pankow said.
Officers identified the man as O’Neil, who lives nearby. Police said that O’Neil told them that he thought he was at his own home – where naked shits on the garage floor are apparently not only allowed, but encouraged.
O’Neil had a blood alcohol level 0.37 percent, Pankow said. He was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated because of his blood alcohol level. He then was taken to jail on charges of disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property and obstructing an officer.…Continue Reading
From what witnesses are saying, Landrum apparently invited himself to a community barbeque at the Little Village apartments Sunday and, according to one witness, just kinda hung around staring at everyone all creepy like.
“He looked like he was kind of buzzed,” said one witness. “He was watching us all and I was like, that’s weird,” said another.
One of the victims told police Landrum approached her as she was standing with a male friend in an apartment foyer. He reportedly grabbed hold of her wrist and told her “Everything is going to be okay, just come with me.”
The 14-year-old girl first thought it was a joke, but as Landrum’s grip tightened, she quickly realized it was anything but. She managed to twist her wrist free from his grasp and ran into her aunt’s nearby apartment. As she turned to shut the door, police say Landrum forced his way inside the home and tried to drag out a second 14-year-old girl who was there.…Continue Reading
HOUSTON, TX – James John Onak, 49 is currently in jail after police say he struck a man with his car, severing one of the victim’s legs, then drove around with the man’s body in his car after it was sent through the windshield.
Eleven minutes after hitting the 32-year-old motorist whose car had broke down on the Gulf Freeway, he was spotted by police a couple miles away driving erratically and pulled over. That’s when the officer made the gruesome discovery lying on the passenger side floorboard and informed Onak he had picked up a hitchiker.
But unlike Chante Mallard and Vincent Riojas, both of whom knew they had hit someone and then left the victim’s to die horrible deaths after crashing through their windshields, Onak reportedly had no clue he had picked up a motorist who had been walking to a nearby service station.
“He was kind of oblivious to it, actually. Once the deputy got the gentlemen out of the car it became obvious that there was, in fact, a deceased body on the passenger floorboard,” said Captain Jason Finnen with the Precinct 8 Constable’s Office.…Continue Reading
