Deerfield Beach, FL – The owner of a South Florida reptile store featured here two years ago after a man choked to death during a cockroach eating contest, has been arrested after he allegedly hit employees with a lizard.
Police say 40-year-old Benjamin Siegel, owner of Siegel Reptiles, is facing battery and animal cruelty charges after video surveillance captured Siegel throwing a bearded dragon lizard in the air and swinging it multiple times. He also hit employees with the bearded dragon multiple times and threw Gatorade on them.
According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office arrest report:
“The defendant did unnecessarily torment the animal, handling the animal in a cruel and/or inhumane manner and intentionally committed an act to the animal which results in excessive and repeated infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering to the animal.”
Siegel was already on bond for previous battery charges at the time of this incident, so when he faced a judge his previous bond was revoked. He was still behind bars without bond on Monday.…
LA PLATA COUNTY, CO — This colorful looking fellow, who most definitely smells like a penny, was arrested following the imprisonment and assault of a woman in her own home over a two day period.
Edward Venteroso was living on the property of Kristy Harris, who had a previous order of protection against Edward so it’s unclear why he was still “living” on her property. Going by his mugshot, I can only imagine it was in a cave or under a lean-to made of a big ass blue tarp.
On Tuesday, Venteroso allegedly entered Harris’ home and El-Kabonged her repeatedly about the head with a cast iron skillet. When Harris attempted to call 911 for help, Venteroso smashed her phone.
Police were eventually called to the home where they found a bloody and half-conscious Harris on her hands and knees, pleading for help. She was taking to the hospital and is being treated for blunt trauma to her head and ears as well as other multiple blunt injuries.
Venteroso was arrested on a charge of first-degree assault, violation of a protection order, false imprisonment and obstructing of telephone service.…

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.…
Orillia, ONT — In early April roughly two years ago, 48-year-old Maria “Tonie” Farrell was leaving work in her Tim Horton’s regalia, when she heard the cries of a woman being attacked behind a nearby convenience store. She immediately ran to the woman’s defense as a man punched the victim and took off.
After a short time, Sgt. Russ Watson of the Ontario Provincial police showed up on scene, alone. Mrs. Farrell attempted to show the sergeant the direction the alleged perpetrator took, trying to be helpful as grannies are wont to do. In reaction, Sgt. Watson did what any good officer would and told her to “shut the fuck up” before needlessly and brutally attacking her — because grandmothers are terrifying and must be handled with extreme prejudice.
Watson reportedly karate kicked Farrell in the leg before sucker punching her in the face. Once she was down, he kept her down with a knee in the back. Leg dangling and in extreme pain, Farrell was then handcuffed and loaded into the back of Watson’s cruiser.…
HENAN PROVINCE, CHINA – I don’t normally post stories out of China because China, but couldn’t pass up the horrific report of a woman getting so mad at her nephew that she used a knife to slice off the toddler’s penis.
Xue Paan, 37, was reportedly sitting on the toilet using her phone to talk with her boyfriend when her 3-year-old nephew, Qiang Qiang, walked in and asked if he could play a game on her phone.
She became so enraged with the boy that she went to the kitchen and grabbed a blunt knife that she used to cut off the little boy’s penis. She then ran out of the house.
The boy’s mother, who had been visiting a neighbor, ran back to the house after hearing Qiang scream and discovered her son in a pool of blood.
“Qiang Qiang had fainted and was lying in a pool of blood. Next to him was a knife and his penis,” she said.
Qiang was rushed to the hospital where doctors were able to reattach his penis, but not without some difficulty.…
COLMA, CA — A shopper at a Colma Nordstrom Rack almost had three of her teeth knocked out by a woman after telling the mother to quiet her kid, who was throwing a tantrum inside the store.
Natalie Bree Hajek-Richardson says she was in the checkout line when a child between the age of 4 and 6 began throwing a tantrum. She said the tantrum itself didn’t bother her, but it was very loud and hurting her ears.
She says she politely asked the mother if she could do something to keep the kid’s trap shut and, well, things didn’t go so well from there.
“She came to the side of me and told me not to tell her child what to do. And I told her that I didn’t ask your child what to do, I asked you very nicely to calm down your child just a little bit,” she said.
An argument ensued, with Hajek-Richardson telling the woman to go to hell. The woman replied with, “I’ll see you there.” Hell turned out to be the parking lot and the mother made good on her promise.…
NEBRASKA – Kimberly Pankratius is facing two felony charges after she lost her cool in a Wal-Mart parking lot and hit a fellow customer with her PT Cruiser because they too her parking spot.
Pankratius, 36, got angry when a couple pulled into a parking space she’d been waiting for. She called them “douche bags” before driving off to find another spot. At this point, I’m with Pankratius. Having a spot taken from you can be infuriating, even if it was done unintentionally.
But Pankratius couldn’t let it go and turned her vehicle around and speeded toward the couple as they were walking towards the store. Pankratius says she only meant to scare them, but she allegedly came within inches of the man and hit the woman, 40-year-old Julie Weakly, with her driver’s side mirror.
Weakly didn’t need medical treatment, but even so, Pankratius’ actions were as unacceptable as they were illegal. She was quickly identified by police via her license tag and was cooperative with police once contacted.
She admitted to being the driver who hit the woman, saying she “felt really bad about it” and was “really scared.” She was arrested and charged with assault and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony – both felonies.…

She said that she called police to report the harassment, but the teens started assaulting her husband before she even hung up the phone. Her husband then used a golf club to attack the kids in self-defense, sending two to the hospital and leaving an 11-year-old boy with welts on his head.…
CZECH REPUBLIC – This may be the very first story we’ve ever had out of the Czech Republic, where a 15-year-old girl has been accused of using an ax to chop off her friend’s fingers so she could make a sacrifice to Satan.
Authorities say it happened in the city of Brno after Alena Skrivankova went to the home of 10-year-old Jitka Svehlova and told the little girl’s parents that they were going out to play.
Once inside the woods, Skrivankova allegedly tied the younger girl to a tree and then used an axe she’d hidden in her backpack to chop off the girl’s fingers.
“Somehow the younger girl managed to escape, and her horrified parents called the police,” said a police spokesman. “When officers arrived at the scene they found the older girl sitting on the ground with the ax in one hand and the severed fingers in the other.”
Skrivankova allegedly said she cut off the girl’s fingers because she wanted to make a sacrifice to Satan. She was arrested and is now expected to undergo psychiatric assessment.…

According to police, Cummings and 20-year-old Simone Day have a relationship that is purely sexual. On Monday, Cummings visited Day at her apartment where she lives with her one-year-old daughter.
Before the two had sex, Day moved her little girl to the child’s own room. After having sex, Cummings took the crying girl from her room while Day took a shower.
Cummings then took the child downstairs with him to get something to drink. When she would not stop crying for her mother, Cummings lost his temper and punched the child in the face with a closed fist “causing serious harm.”

DELTONA, FL – We got the woman who choked her husband over a cowboy hat, and now we have 45-year-old Desmond Brownlee, a man accused of choking his wife over some fried chicken.
According to reports, police responding to a 911 call arrived at a home at around 3 a.m. Monday and heard a female inside screaming, “Please, 911, please.” They also heard a male voice inside the home respond, “Shhh, what do you want, us both to go to jail?”
Brownlee and his wife of four years, Shey Alamo, eventually met the officers at the door where Alamo informed them that she and Brownlee got into an argument over Brownlee not having enough fried chicken leftovers and the care of her mother.
The argument escalated, said Alamo, to the point that Brownlee pushed her into their bedroom and onto a bed. She said he then punched her in the face repeatedly before choking her.
“The victim described the feeling of not being able to breath,” reads the police report. …
CENTER TOWNSHIP, PA – Stacey Golden is facing assault charges after she reportedly gave her boyfriend’s 9-year-old grandson a bloody nose at the boy’s bus stop.
According to the criminal complaint, the fifth-grader was crying when he got on the bus with a bloody nose and a black eye. Authorities were called after the boy told the bus driver and school officials that “Golden punched him in the face because she was mad at her boyfriend.”
His statement was corroborated by the driver who reported seeing Golden “outside flailing her arms in an aggressive manner” while she was talking to the boy.
“She struck the boy at least once, if not more, and he sustained some minor injuries,” Chief Barry Kramer said. “Someone lost their temper.”
Police arrested Golden and charged her with simple assault, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment. According to reports, the boy lives with his grandfather and Golden, which means things are probably pretty awkward in that house right now.
It’s been a few years since we’ve had an adult beat a kid’s ass at a bus stop.…

The videos were posted online and showed 26-year-old Karon being beaten by several teenagers while other teenagers stood around and watched. The teens can be seen repeatedly punching Karon in the face and body slamming him.
Karon’s mother says he suffers from Williams Syndrome and has the mental capacity of a second grader. “He doesn’t do anything to anyone but be kind,” she said.
The cool thing about this story, aside from the teens getting busted, is how they got busted. A 16-year-old girl saw the videos and wanted to do something about it.
Angeliz Marrero re-posted the attacks Saturday using #TheBullyProject. Within 24 hours, she had 18,000 new Instagram followers. “It spread so fast and I’m just so grateful for everybody that’s helping me out because if it weren’t for everybody helping, supporting and everything, this wouldn’t even go viral and that man really deserves justice,” said Angeliz.…
