In The Mean Time...
Memphis, TN – Police arrested a man and charged him with aggravated assault after he allegedly used a gun to threaten the host of a child’s birthday party because his children didn’t get any cake or ice cream.
Joseph Hayes, 48, became upset and yelled at the woman because “Y’all didn’t save my kids no damn ice cream and cake.” Not content with mere words, Hayes solidified his status as a jackass by traveling back to his apartment and returning to threaten her with what appeared to be a handgun.
According to the woman’s report, Hayes came back to the party and approached the woman. He lifted up his shirt, showing what appeared to be a handgun tucked in his waistband and uttered this completely justified and reasonable statement: “I ain’t scared to go to jail, just take care of my kids.”
Of course Hayes was arrested at his apartment a short time after the woman called 911 to state she had been threatened and was in fear for her life.…Continue Reading
WILLIAMSTON, S.C. – I was surprised this when I found this was not out of Florida, but then not surprised to see it comes from South Carolina. A man has been arrested after biting off part of his girlfriend’s ear during an argument and losing his teeth in the process.
Police say 50-year-old Tony Ellison and his girlfriend, Yolanda Smith, were arguing over money when Ellison latched on to Smith’s ear and only let go when she started screaming like a banshee. She ran to a friend’s house missing about 20 percent of her ear.
Ellison was arrested and charged with first-degree assault and battery. While in court for his bond hearing, Capt. James Grubbs said Ellison admitted to biting off part of his girlfriend’s ear as well as losing his teeth. “(Ellison) told the judge at that time, something to the effect of, yeah, he remembered (biting Smith’s ear), but something about his teeth falling out during that particular incident,” said Grubbs.
Doctors were not able to do much with Smith’s ear, as they never found the missing piece.…Continue Reading
LOUISVILLE, KY – A mother has been charged with murdering her 12-year-old son after she admitted to beating him for hours after he took her pain pills.
On Friday, 29-year-old Tasha Parsons admitted in a police interview that after her 12-year-old son, Devin Parsons, stole her meds and would not tell her where they were, she beat the poor kid for hours using her hands, feet, a belt and even a metal tray.
The boy would lose unconsciousness sometime later Friday morning, but police would not be called to the residence until that afternoon. Parsons would also tell police that her boyfriend, 30-year-old Waldo L. Jones, also took part in the beatings.
Jones, who has been living with the family for about a year, denied having any involvement in the actual beating, explaining the reason why he had the boy’s blood on his clothes was because he had tried to intervene a couple times and even helped clean some of the boy’s wounds. Even if he’s telling the truth, he did not get help for the boy, leaving the house when the boy became unresponsive and telling friends that there was a dead boy at his house.…Continue Reading

Brooklyn, NY – 30 year-old Kevin Louther, an NYPD cop and youth officer, was arrested and charged in connection to an inappropriate relationship he apparently had with a 15 year-old girl.
The alleged relationship between the two was discovered and reported by the girl’s mother, who discovered explicit text messages and pictures sent to the girl. Police are saying that they do not believe the pair had sex, but that there was some smooching to accompany the texts and e-mails.
The two met through the departments ‘Law Enforcement Explorer’ program which, according to the program’s website, “reaches out to New York City’s young adults in every community to help build up relations between the community and New York City Police Department.” I’m pretty sure this sort of thing isn’t quite what they had in mind. Louther has been suspended without pay and is due in court again this week, facing charges of sex abuse, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Oh… and his initial bail was set at $750.…Continue Reading
Miami, FL – Shaun Nicholas Anderson (mugshot), 20, was reportedly clad in a stunning black dress with clear stones, panties and a black bra while at the wheel of a silver Chevrolet Trailblazer driving when a Miami police officer driving behind decided to run the plates. The tag check showed the SUV had been reported stolen in Miami, so the officer called for backup to aid in the stop.
When the vehicle stopped at a red light, the officer reportedly took the opportunity to activate his lights and ‘made verbal cues’ for the driver to turn off the SUV. The driver of the SUV instead ran the red light and the chase began. Officers followed the vehicle until it crashed into a fence, causing about $500 in damage, the report said. The driver and passenger fled but were soon caught hiding in bushes.
According to the police report, Anderson admitted to working as an escort and taking the Trailblazer’s keys from a client. He told police he ‘borrowed’ the vehicle to visit his grandmother. …Continue Reading
MILTON, Ga. – A man has been arrested and charged with fatally shooting the mother of his two kids during a child custody exchange.
Police say 25-year-old Christopher Erdman shot and killed 25-year-old Shannon Lawrence after meeting her in a Wells Fargo Bank parking lot at around 2 p.m. Sunday. A man nearby heard several gunshots and called police. Officers would find Lawrence’s car, four shell casings on the pavement, and a pool of blood.
As they began trying to find the owner of the car, they received a call from a hospital. Erdman had pulled up to their location with Lawrence in the back of his pickup truck. Erdman was apprehended, but it was too late for Lawrence. She had died from being shot four times in her (very attractive) face and neck.
The children are now safe, but police say it is likely the 3-year-old and 1-year-old witnessed the murder of their mother. Milton Police Captain Shane McCarty told Channel 2 Action News that “indications now is that (the shooting) was in front of the children.”
Lawrence had a protective order against Erdman stemming from him continually sending her threatening and intimidating e-mails and texts after their breakup.…Continue Reading

On Monday, police found two juveniles walking down the road at 2:30 in the morning. The kids told police that their parents, Sue and Michael Bence, had been too drunk to drive earlier so one of the juveniles had been driving the family vehicle when they got into an argument with their mother.
Sue (seen here doing her best Meg Mucklebones impression) ordered her daughter to pull the car over and then made both of her kids get out before she and her husband drove off, leaving them standing there. An hour later, Sue and Michael were arrested at their home 20 miles away.
The couple were each charged with child endangerment, but Sue was also charged with domestic battery, driving under the influence and driving while license was suspended.

Summersville, WV – A West Virginia man is facing multiple charges after a violent rampage allegedly fueled by bath salts.
Bath salts, which are neither a bath nor salt, apparently made 43 year-old Mitchell Alderman do some really dumb things Thursday. The first stop on Alderman’s crazy train was a home which he forced himself into at approximately 1:30 am. As it happens, the home belongs to Cpl. David Hopkins of the Nicholas County Sheriffs Department.
Alderman was promptly pushed right the hell out of the house and arrested. When he arrived at the Nicholas County Courthouse, he fled on foot and scuffled with the officers attempting to re-apprehend his ass. Police say that pepper spray and a Taser were used. One deputy went to the hospital with a sprained wrist.
Inside the courthouse, Alderman apparently damaged a booking room. En route to jail, he kicked out one of the windows as what I imagine could only be a mature expression of his distaste for riding in the backseat.…Continue Reading
DENVER, CO – Police need your helping finding the man accused of abducting an 8-year-old girl last Thursday then sexually assaulting her before dropping her off at a gas station.
The girl was with her 11-year-old friend trying to catch a chihuahua that had gotten loose from its yard. They chased the dog into an alley where they met a man in a white van. He called the kids over to help him put something in a dumpster, but ended up throwing the girl into the van instead before reversing out of the alley.
Her friend ran away and notified his babysitter what had happened who then notified police. For almost two hours there were no signs of the girl until she was dropped off at a gas station three miles from where she had been taken. At first the news reports were that she had been released unharmed, but on Friday it was revealed that this was not the case. In the time the man had the girl, he had sexually assaulted her.…Continue Reading
The crash happened on Saturday after the 32-year-old woman crashed into a guard rail and rolled the vehicle on to its roof. She had eleven kids inside the vehicle at the time, ranging from ages 2 to 17. You read that right. Eleven.
The woman, mother of seven of the kids, was arrested on the scene after admitting to drinking alcohol prior to the crash and failing a field sobriety test. It was reported her blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.
Unbelievably no one died in the rollover, even though the majority of the kids couldn’t have possibly been secured, although five of the kids were taken to the hospital. The six remaining kids were turned over to relatives.
In addition to the OWI charges for causing injury with a child under 16, police also want to charge the woman with felony recklessly endangering safety for turning the Dodge Durango into a clown car.…Continue Reading
Philadelphia, PA — Officials in Pennsylvania have reported that a beaver accused of attacking three people in the Pennypack Creek area last week has tested positive for rabies.
The first of two alleged attacks occurred on June 1 as a man and his wife were fishing. Authorities claim a large beaver first attacked the woman, biting her on the leg. When the husband tried to intervene, he was rewarded with a few puncture wounds to his chest and arms.
The very next day, a man and his child happened across a beaver doing whatever it is beavers do when they aren’t building dams and shit. The two reportedly observed the beaver for a minute before dad started poking at it with a fishing rod. The beaver apparently didn’t appreciate the unexpected invasion of it’s personal space and turned around and chomped down on the kid. Good thinking, dad…
The beaver blamed for both attacks was captured late Thursday evening and put down.
These attacks follow another reported beaver attack from back in April.…Continue Reading
Witnesses told police they watched as Jean drove her car off the road and into the bay. As one witness was dialing 911, he told police he saw Jean exit the partially submerged vehicle and try to drown her 7-year-old child. As she was pushing the child’s head into the water, the witness says she was telling another child, age 2, to get out of the car and join them in the water.
“The car took a sharp turn right into the water,” said witness Rafael Abraeu. ”She got out in the water and was pushing the little girl’s head under and threw her body on top of her.”
Three men who were fishing nearby told police they tried to rescue Jean and the children, but Jean wouldn’t allow them anywhere near the child. One of the men said Jean tried to bite him when he reached for the kid.…Continue Reading
According to police, Guillory beat the man with a board and shot him in the chest before dousing him with gasoline and lighting him up early Friday morning.
The victim, identified only as a 51-year-old man, somehow survived the attack and was able to run to a neighbor’s home to get help. He’s been hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
The why’s and the what for’s are still unknown at this point, but if I had to speculate, I’d say it probably had something to do with the neighbor’s musical taste and/or dog shit.
Guillory has been booked on charges of attempted murder and aggravated arson.…Continue Reading
UNIONTOWN, PA — Ice cream truck driver Bernard Geisel, 29, is in jail after he allegedly broke into his boss’s home and attacked him with a baseball bat. The attack was captured on camera.
Pennsylvania State police say Geisel had argued with his boss, George Swaney, at his home Tuesday but had left without being paid. According to reports, after an exchange of phone calls, Geisel returned and used a baseball bat to smash through a rear door.
“All of a sudden I heard a big bang and it sounded like a gunshot. But here it was him with the ball bat. What we saw on the door is he put his foot on the door and hit the ball bat on the window,” said Swaney’s girlfriend.
The video shows that, at first, Geisel has the upper hand. Swaney eventually turns the tables and ends up keeping him pinned until police arrive.
Geisel was arraigned on charges including burglary and simple assault and is currently being held at Fayette County Prison on $25,000 bail.…Continue Reading
Kansas City, KS — Mark A. Thomas, 26, of Kansas City has been arrested for the second time in less than a month – this time accused of sodomizing a 4-year-old girl.
The incident reportedly occurred in November 2009 in a downtown Kansas City hotel room. Court documents say Thomas checked into a room overnight with a woman and her two children. The court documents go on to say that while the girl’s mother was out running errands, Thomas came out of the shower, told the child to take off her pants, and touched her vagina.
In response to the accusation, Thomas maintained that it was just a misunderstanding. According to court records, Thomas told police that he was, in fact, a “bad tickler” and that his “finger slipped.”
Well… okay then. Forget that we even brought it up…
Oddly, last month prosecutors charged Thomas with statutory sodomy for allegedly sodomizing a friend’s 6-year-old daughter in November 2010. The friend was allowing Thomas to live at their family’s house when thay incident occurred.…Continue Reading
Jacksonville, FL – What a tragic story in almost every way imaginable. A 12-year-old boy in Florida has been charged with murder, accused of beating his 2-year-old half-brother to death.
There isn’t a lot of details being released in regards to the actual murder. Reports are that the mother of the two boys, 25-year-old Biannela Susana, came home to find 2-year-old David Galarriago unconscious. She cleaned him up and put ice on his head hoping her son would revive on his own. When that didn’t happen two hours later, she finally called 911 and then drove him to the hospital where he would die a few days later.
On Thursday, 12-year-old Cristian Fernandez (mugshot), the victim’s half-brother, was indicted on first-degree murder charges. Prosecutors say he beat his brother to death. Susana was charged with negligent manslaughter for her decision to wait so long to call for help. Doctors say that had she sought immediate medical treatment for her toddler, he very well may be alive today. There’s also the fact that this isn’t the first time the boy was injured by his older brother.…Continue Reading

Police say the 22-year-old woman was invited over to the victim’s residence Tuesday night to partake in the consumption of marijuana and various alcoholic beverages. When the party broke up shortly after midnight, Burchfield and the victim headed into the bedroom for some consensual nookie.
Police say Burchfield began arguing with the man soon after the lovin’ was over, demanding to know where he kept his cash. Though he stood his ground and refused to tell the woman where he stashed his cash, dude caved when Burchfield offered him a relaxing back massage.
At some point during the massage, Burchfield reportedly grabbed a nearby fillet knife and slit dude’s throat. I see I’m not the only who keeps their slitty, slashy, stabby stuff hidden in various locations throughout the bedroom…
Burchfield, still armed with the knife, then positioned her crazy ass in front of the bedroom door, preventing the man’s exit.…Continue Reading
