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.…
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.…
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.…
GAITHERSBURG, MD – Joey Poindexter has been convicted for sexually assaulting multiple men he possibly drugged after meeting them at beer pong tournaments.
Police have been investigating the 38-year-old real estate appraiser since 2013, after a young man reported Poindexter had sexually assaulted him after a beer pong tournament at a Maryland bar.
Investigators would end up finding several photos of the victim in various states of consciousness, and would also get their hands on a phone conversation between Poindexter and the victim that didn’t sound like an innocent man who had just been accused of rape.
“You know, no matter what did happen or didn’t happen, like I said, I was pretty trashed,” Poindexter tells the victim. “And if it makes you feel any better, I don’t have any [expletive] AIDS if anything did happen.”
After the case went public, four more men came forward with similar stories. They claimed they were also sexually assaulted at Poindexter’s home while they were drunk and possibly drugged, leaving them unable to guard their buttholes from Poindexter’s penis.…
STANFORD, CA – Brock Allen Turner, a 19-year-old star swimmer at Stanford University, has been accused of raping an intoxicated woman as she lay unconscious along a campus street.
According to reports, Turner met the woman at a campus party and sometime during the early morning hours of Jan. 18, found himself on Lomita Court with the woman passed out drunk.
The district attorney’s office says that Turner took this opportunity to rape the woman.
He only stopped his assault after two male bikers witnessed Turner having sex with the woman who was clearly unconscious. “She was lying on the ground unconscious, not moving,” said Deputy District Attorney Alaleh Kianerci.
Turner tried to run, but the two bikers held him at the scene and called police. He was arrested and later posted $150,000 bail. The woman, who is not a student, was taken to the hospital.
Turner is now looking at a slew of very serious charges. The district attorney’s office plans on filing five felony charges against Turner, including raping an unconscious person, raping an intoxicated person, sexual penetration with a foreign object, and assault while attempting to commit rape.…
GAINESVILLE, FL – Angela Woodworth found herself in a bit trouble after her drunk driving scared four kids in her car so bad that they jumped out and reported her.
According to police, Woodworth was driving around town with her 11-year-old son and three of his friends. They went to a Chinese restaurant, then to a bowling alley where Woodworth drank two pitchers of beer. Afterwards, they went to a Ruby Tuesday where Woodworth had at least four drinks.
When they left the restaurant, Woodworth was allegedly so shitfaced that she couldn’t keep her car on the road. The kids got so scared that when Woodworth came to a stop, they jumped out of her car and ran inside a nearby Steak ‘n Shake.
“One of the boys told me his mom, they just left Ruby Tuesday, and his mom was really drunk and swerving all over the road,” said Josh Kramer, who was inside eating. “She hit a pole and broke a mirror off her car.”
Kramer said that while he was on the phone with 911, Woodworth came into the restaurant screaming at the kids to get back in the car.…
Hyde, Greater Manchester, UK– A man is currently on trial after he was accused of tackling a woman who was trying to stop his dog from mauling her 6-year-old daughter.
Karen Baines was walking home from a Christmas party with her 6-year-old daughter, Demi Baines, when the incident occurred. They were a short distance from their home when they came upon 70-year-old Phillip Rhodes, who was standing outside his house.
Karen told the courts the horrifying details of what happened next when Rhodes’ Staffordshire Bull Terrier, “Bruno”, approached them from a nearby field.
“Philip was stood outside his property with his arms out saying ‘isn’t she lovely?’ He was just a few feet away. He appeared to be drunk. He was slurring and staggering.
“The dog came out from a field to my left. It wasn’t on a lead. As I got to the side of him the dog ran in front of us and I put my hand down and it licked the tip of my finger then all of a sudden attacked my daughter’s face.…
MEXICO – Mario Alberto Lizalde Reyes has been accused of fatally shooting his best friend before chopping off the man’s penis and feeding it to his dog.
The 26-year-old told police that he and and his lifelong friend, 24-year-old Mario Hernandez Banda, 24, were drinking when they got into an argument over Banda allegedly trying to touch Reyes “in a sexual way”.
‘After pushing him off, he went to urinate in an alley so I followed him, pulled out my gun and shot him in the head,” said Reyes. “I then took his knife off him and chopped off his penis as punishment and put it in a bag.”
No word on what Reyes planned to do with his brand new dick in a bag, but he said when his dog would not stop sniffing at the bag, he got an idea.
“I decided to give it to him and he ate it,” said Reyes.
Reyes left the body of his friend in an alley, finished walking his dog, and then went home.…
OCEAN TOWNSHIP, NJ – Prosecutors say the alleged drunk driver who hit a man and drove over a mile with him sticking through his windshield will likely face upgraded charges after the victim died.
According to reports, 33-year-old Marcos Ortega was driving drunk on Nov. 10 when he hit 61-year-old Kenneth Moeller who was walking along the side of the road. Instead of stopping, Ortega continued driving with poor Moeller sticking through his windshield.
Police began receiving calls regarding an erratic driver with what appeared to be a body on the hood of the car. They were able to pull Ortega over approximately 1.5 miles from where he initially hit Moeller.
Police conducted field sobriety tests on Ortega and determined he was impaired. He was taken into custody and charged with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle crash and causing serious bodily injury to another while driving under the influence.
Moeller was flown to Jersey Shore University Medical Center where he was placed on life support and had to have one of his legs amputated.…
HARDWICK, VT – Second degree murder charges have been filed against a disabled teen’s mother and her boyfriend after police say they killed the boy by intentionally putting alcohol in his IV.
On Aug. 22, police responded to the home of Melissa Robitille and Walter Richter after first responders found 13-year-old Isaac Robitille dead inside.
Isaac had multiple medical issues that required caretakers, feeding tubes and IVs just to keep him alive. Robitille wrote on her blog that Isaac had a nervous system disorder and Holoprosencephaly – an anomaly in which the brain doesn’t fully divide into two hemispheres.
According to a comment made by Richter’s on his Facebook page just the other day, Isaac was well cared for and it was just his time to go.
Police disagreed with that assessment, especially after the teen’s autopsy revealed he had a BAC of 0.146, almost twice the legal limit to drive. The medical examiner’s office has ruled the boy’s death a homicide, citing alcohol as the contributing cause.
So how did the alcohol get in the boy?…
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.…
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.…
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.…
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.…
