Dover, Delaware — Joseph Tighe, 62, was arrested yesterday for allegedly carrying on a relationship with a 16-year-old high school student. The Dover Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit arrested Tighe for eight counts of rape in the fourth degree and other charges after an investigation revealed that Tighe had an ongoing relationship with a Dover High School student.

Tighe and the student had allegedly been meeting at hotels in the area. Tighe is a music instructor at the high school the girl attends. He teaches string instruments at a middle school as well and has been teaching at the schools for about a year and a half. He is now on paid suspension from the district. An unpaid suspension is not an option according to Tighe’s contract, Superintendent Dr. Michael Thomas said. The Dover Police Department called Thomas late Wednesday afternoon regarding impending charges against Tighe. Thomas said he can’t divulge the details of the district’s internal investigation now in effect.

Tighe is currently in James T. Vaughn Correctional under a $45,500 secured bond.…

Jacksonville, North Carolina — Martha A. Martin, 55, was in court yesterday on charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault on a handicapped person and interfering with an emergency communication.

Jacksonville Police allege the woman hit her mother in the head with a hammer, and then disconnected the telephone when she tried to call 911. Jacksonville Police responded to a domestic dispute at the Decatur Road home at 5:53 p.m. and then returned at 8:23 p.m. when Pilar Martin’s call was disconnected, JPD spokeswoman Beth Purcell said. “We have been there several times, and they haven’t followed through at the magistrate’s office,” Purcell said.

The 83-year-old victim, Pilar Martin was taken to the hospital Tuesday with serious injuries and has since been released. Martin is being held in the Onslow County Jail on a $50,000 bond. I’d really like to know what that argument was about.…

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An assistant basketball coach at Tony Hillerman Middle School has been charged with trying to force a teenage girl to perform sex acts on some of his players.

Police say that when a 14-year-old girl went to the coach’s office to inquire about becoming a manager for the team, she encountered 19-year-old Tomas Vargas, assistant basketball coach, and three other players. Vargas informed the girl that in order to get the job, she would have to give blowjobs to the players.

The girl refused and attempted to leave, but Vargas pushed a table into her and would not let her leave the room. Investigators say the girl told them Vargas then grabbed her by the back of the neck and forced her head into one of the player’s laps until she broke free.

According to court documents, and in an act we rarely see here at D’D, Vargas admitted to everything when questioned by police. Vargas is now being charged with attempted sexual penetration and false imprisonment.…

Punta Gorda, Florida — Jerome Nubin has been charged with sexual battery on a 12-year-old, aggravated assault, kidnapping and domestic battery after an incident that happened Wednesday morning.

Police say the 32-year-old man forced his girlfriend to watch him sexually assault her 12-year-old daughter three times. Prior to assaulting the child, Nubin allegedly slapped and punched the mother and threatened both the mother and child with a baseball bat. The child’s grandfather is the one who actually contacted the sheriff’s office. He indicated that Nubin threatened him with a bat and threw bricks, a child’s scooter and a lamp at him.

The child told detectives that Nubin sexually battered her while she was in her mother’s bedroom with her mother present. Detectives said the child and the mother were held against their will by Nubin, who used verbal threats and a baseball bat. According to the press release, Nubin told the girl to take her clothes off or he would cut her throat. He then raped her three times.

Nubin is being held in the Charlotte County Jail without bond.…

Sante Fe, NM — A Santa Fe High School shop teacher is on paid administrative leave after police say cell phone video surfaced showing the woman locking a 15-year-old student in a cage outside.

The kid was supposedly acting up in class earlier this month, and instead of sending the kid to detention or the principal’s office, the teacher reportedly recruited a couple other students and dragged the kid outside and locked him up inside a wire cage.

The boy can be seen waving to his fellow classmates from behind the chain link cage. After sitting in there for about 15 minutes, the boy was able to kick his way out and contact his parents.

“She actually empowered two students in her same class to sort of control him physically,” explained Santa Fe Police Detective Sergeant Louis Carlos. ““We’re looking at whether or not her actions define the criminal code for abuse and neglect because of leaving him in this cage that housed chemicals. And of course the temperature– the weather that day.

SMITHFIELD, R.I. — A teenage student at Smithfield High School has been charged with cyberstalking after creating a fake Facebook account to harass another student.

The 15-year-old girl created a fake account pretending to be a fellow student who was born missing part of her foot. The account was created under the name “Halfafoot” with the victim’s last name and birth date. Accompanying the profile was a picture of a bloody, severed foot.

After police figured out who was responsible for the posting, the affidavit states they went to the teen’s home where her father was “annoyed and rude,” referring the police to the phone number of a law office. Detectives confiscated three computers from the home instead.

Police really took this seriously and questioned 2 of the 26 “friends” listed on the fake account and were able to get a clearer picture of how the profile was created and why.

A female Smithfield High sophomore told the police that the account was created Nov. 6 by the 15-year-old and a male Burrillville High School student on her home computer while she was taking a shower, the affidavit shows.

Philadelphia, PA – A doctor has been charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors.

This story truly seems like a really bad script for a horror flick. Over the last 30 years, 69-year-old Dr. Kermit Gosnell has made millions of dollars performing a procedure that most doctors will not do — late-term abortions. Prosecutors say that the doctor would prey on minorities, immigrants and poor women, lying to them in regards to how far they were in their pregnancies.

Gosnell charged $325 for first-trimester abortions and $1,600 to $3,000 for abortions up to 30 weeks. Abortions are legal up to 24 weeks gestation in Pennsylvania, although most doctors won’t perform them after 20 weeks, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors say that most of the women were lied to in regards to how far they were along in their pregnancies and that once labor was induced, the women would give live birth to viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy.…

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A mother is facing child abuse charges after being accused of beating and burning her young son, as well as keeping him locked up in a tiny linen closet.

Police say 23-year-old Fairrin Moss would lock her 3-year-old son in a closet that measured 12 inches by 24 inches for hours while she left the house. Moss was arrested last month and charged with assault and child endangerment after the boy’s aunt found him locked inside the closet.

She took him out and began removing his clothing to give him a bath and discovered her nephew was sporting a slew of visible injuries on his body. Luckily the woman did the right thing and took him to the hospital where staff found the boy had been over the head, in the head, in the stomach, on the side, legs, grabbed by the neck and had severe burns on his foot. Investigators say it looked like it had been submerged in boiling water.

The boy is expected to recover, at least physically, and has since been placed in a foster home.…

SILVER SPRINGS, Fla -- Police have charged five with breaking into a home and stealing cremated remains, mistaking them for drugs. Then things get really dumb.

A woman returned home to find that it had been burglarized. Missing were some electronics and jewelry, but what upset her most was that the thieves had also taken off with her father’s ashes, along with the ashes of her two Great Danes.

Police were eventually able to track down the culprits as well as finding out why they had stole the ashes of the woman’s father and two dogs. The idiots thought the ashes were cocaine or heroin, and had even snorted some of the ashes before getting rid of them. As of right now, Waldo Soroa, 19;  Matrix Andaluz, 18; and Jose David Diaz Marrero, 19 have been arrested on multiple burglary charges along with two juveniles.

Funny thing is, I didn’t even bother looking at the state this happened in. I already knew.…

Spartanburg, SC – In what authorities describe as a calm, controlled, methodical tone, a 14-year-old boy called 911 dispatchers just before midnight on Monday and told them he had just killed his father, grandmother and his great-aunt. In the same tone, he also said he would be waiting for them at the home.

When police arrived at the home, the boy came out of the house with his hands in the air – he was taken into custody without incident. Inside the residence, officers found 44-year-old Joe Robert Lankford dead in his bed – he had been shot once in the mouth. The boy’s great-aunt, 83-year-old Virginia Gaston, had died from a gunshot wound to the forehead. The boy’s grandmother, 80-year-old Rachel Gaston Lankford, was alive, but had been shot in the face. She remains hospitalized in critical condition.

The boy told police he had shot them all with the .22-caliber rifle his father bought him for his birthday last September. Why? When questioned, the boy simply said, “I don’t know.” Spartanburg Public Safety Director Tony Fisher said the teen does not have a history of mental health issues, nor has he had any discipline issues at school.…

Chicago, Illinois – A physician from RUSH University Medical Center in Chicago has been suspended from his job because of the pending investigation resulting from his January 13th arrest. Police say 37-year-old Joshua Baron attempted to trade prescription medication for sexual favors on Craigslist.

An investigator noticed the ad the week before the arrest.  “We routinely check Craigslist for anything that could be criminally related to Wilmette, whether it’s property crime, drugs, etc.,” Detective Kyle Murphy said.  Baron is a pediatric neurologist at Rush, specializing in epilepsy.  “He is being suspended pending further investigation,” said Deb Song, Rush spokeswoman. “He won’t be allowed on campus or allowed to see or admit patients here.”

During the Craigslist correspondence, Baron attempted to trade prescription medication for sex acts. He then traveled to Wilmette to make the exchange. Baron was arrested at a private residence in Wilmette and charged with felony attempt delivery of a controlled substance and misdemeanor solicitation of a sex act. His bond was set at $2,000.

According to the Rush University Medical Center Web site, Baron joined the Rush Pediatric Neurology division in July 2006.  …

Marc Higgins Is Sensitive About His Flatulence

January 19, 2011 at 6:22 am by  

Bristol, CT — Marc Higgins, 21, is being held on murder and assault charges after police say he stabbed four random people at a party over the weekend because a woman at the party supposedly made a stink about his anal emissions.

According to authorities, an intoxicated Higgins “was farting throughout the evening” Saturday, prompting a female partygoer to slap him. Embarrassed and enraged, Higgings reportedly stormed out of the apartment, only to return about 45 minutes later armed with three knives. Police say Higgins didn’t specifically target anyone, but just started lashing out at those unfortunate enough to be within stabbing distance.

Though authorities claim several people were attacked, only four required medical attention. Fellow partygoers Sandra Ranger, 18, David Klett, 19, and Tyler Basso, 18, were all treated for their injuries and released. A man Higgins considered a friend, 21-year-old Matthew Walton, wasn’t so lucky – he was pronounced dead at the hospital. Higgins fled from the scene after all the pokin’, but turned himself in a few hours later.…

Columbus, Ohio – Not a big surprise, but the man accused of killing his child by repeatedly slamming him on the ground has been indicted on aggravated murder charges and had his bail set at $2.5 million.

As Jaded reported in November, 20-year-old Quindell Sherman was charged murdering his 3-month-old son, Jayden Sherman after getting into an argument with the child’s mother. During this argument, Sherman slammed the infant onto a concrete landing. He then struck the baby’s mother, Sonja Mitchell, and great-grandmother, Carolynne Holmes, before picking the baby up and throwing him an estimated 25 feet, into the middle of E. 16th Avenue.

Sherman then ran into the street, grabbed the infant by an arm and “dragged him down the street like a rag doll,” police reported. Not quite finished, this monster then ran into an alley, turned around to face the house and slammed his son on the ground again. He grabbed the baby again and hid in a trash bin, where officers said they found him standing on the child.…

Charleston, West Virginia – A woman was charged with domestic battery after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend in the nose during an argument.

Richard Lee Vaten, 41, and  Lisa Kay Casdorph, 40, were arguing in a car just before 7:30 pm on Monday. The couple pulled into the parking lot of a Go-Mart convenience store where they continued to argue. That is until Casdorph used an ink pen and/or car keys to stab Vaten in the nose.

It isn’t clear what the argument was about, but the stabby lady not only got herself a domestic battery charge, she also got a possession of methamphetamine charge after a search turned some up in her purse. She was in the South Central Regional Jail on Tuesday in lieu of $10,000 bond.

Moral of the story: don’t mess with a meth head.…

Drug Bust At The Tilted Kilt

January 18, 2011 at 3:42 pm by  

Clearwater, Florida – A few servers at a Florida Tilted Kilt are facing felony drug charges after police, acting on an anonymous tip, raided their workplace.

Investigators entered the building at around 9 p.m. Saturday looking for evidence of prescription drugs being sold from the establishment. They ended up arresting 19-year-old Lisa Bragg and 20-year-old Meghan Martin for possession of narcotics without a valid prescription. Another server, 21-year-old Brittani Matterazzo, was nabbed after allegedly trying to ditch some pills in the women’s restroom garbage can.

Normally I don’t care too much about stories like this but what the hell, I liked Matterazzo’s mugshot. Also, the article has a hilarious comment made by one of the customers when reporters asked how they felt about drugs being sold out of the restaurant.

One customer told 10 News that drug sales in the restaurant industry aren’t uncommon, saying a Dunedin fast food chicken restaurant sold marijuana through the drive-thru window when customers asked for “extra biscuits.”

That last line kills me for some reason.…

Man Shot After Eating Another Man’s Cake

January 18, 2011 at 11:07 am by  

Philadelphia, PA – According to Philly police, a 31-year-old male was rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital early Monday morning after getting shot in the gut for eating another man’s cake.

Police say two friends were sitting in a vehicle at about 2:40 a.m. on Monday, when the passenger began eating a piece of cake the driver of the vehicle had in his car. This displeased the driver…immensely. Though authorities have chosen to remain tight-lipped on the flavor of the cake in question, I’m assuming it was chocolate because all kinds of hell broke loose. The two began arguing inside the vehicle and I’m sure some rather harsh words were tossed about. The fight continued outside of the vehicle, but quickly ended when the driver reportedly pulled out a gun and shot the alleged cake eater.

“They weren’t supposed to be sharing” a Central Detectives investigator said. “One was eating the other’s food, they got into an argument and ‘Bang! Bang!'” The investigator denied a conflicting report that french fries were at the center of the argument.

Novi, MI – Police were called to the home Mark Schons shares with his wife and two children Friday afternoon after the boys, Camden, 4, and Tynan, 6, failed to show up for school, and his wife Jennifer, 38, missed an appointment with friends.

When officers arrived, Jennifer and the boys were found dead in separate rooms of the home. Jennifer had apparently been stabbed to death, and Camden and Tynan died of asphyxiation due to compression — Camden with smothering as a secondary cause of death. Hours later, 39-year-old Mark was found dead inside his vehicle in a WalMart parking lot a few miles from his home – police say the cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning.

“He apparently purchased the grill somewhere, placed it on the passenger seat next to him, and just went to sleep,” Novi Police Chief David Molloy said. “It (grill) was still warm when his body was found.” Molloy also said a knife found inside the vehicle is believed to be the weapon used to kill Jennifer Schons, and is still undergoing testing.

Big Coppitt Key, FL – Richard Gervasi, a 43-year-old Pennsylvania resident, was arrested early Sunday morning after police say he was running nekkid through traffic on US 1 after combining LSD and alcohol.

Police were called to Bobalu’s Restaurant at about 1:30 a.m., after receiving a report of a butt-nekkid crazy man on the premises. Police arrived on scene to find three men in the restaurant parking lot – one of them reportedly being attacked by a nude Gervasi. When ordered to cease and desist with the attack, Gervasi allegedly turned and ran toward the deputy, ignoring her orders to stop. The female deputy deployed her Taser, but that apparently had little effect as Gervasi just plucked the prongs from his skin and continued toward her. Another deputy zapped him, dropping Gervasi to the ground. He was soon up and moving again, this time, heading for the other two men in the parking lot.

Meanwhile, back-up arrived and Gervasi was zapped yet again. The third time was the charm. Handcuffed and in the back of an ambulance, Gervasi continued to put up a fight, telling paramedics he was made of steel…king of the world even.…
