NORTH ROYALTON, OH – Police have charged two people after a heated argument at a child’s birthday party turned into a brawl that was captured on video.
It happened on Saturday night where a kid was having a birthday party inside an Ohio Jump Yard. According to reports, it started with a disagreement between a couple and others at the party. “I think there was some disagreement about who should be invited, and who should not be invited,” North Royalton Police Detective David Loeding said.
When the couple left, they found their vehicle’s tires had been slashed in the parking lot. Instead of calling police, the couple went back inside the Jump Yard and confronted those they believed responsible for the tire slashing. This confrontation quickly turned into an argument, followed by pushing and shoving, and then the punches.
“Unfortunately, it goes from two to three, to three to five people, who are involved in exchanging fisticuffs, ” Detective Loeding said. Fisticuffs. I think I will start working that word into more articles.…Continue Reading
Hallandale Beach, FL – Kayla Mendoza, 20, tweeted “2 drunk 2 care” before she allegedly driving down the wrong side of the road and causing a deadly car accident that killed two women.
Three hours after Mendoza made that tweet, she drove her vehicle the wrong way down the Sawgrass Expressway at 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning. She ended up plowing into another vehicle head-on, killing best friends, Kaitlyn Ferrante and Marisa Catronio, both 21-years-old.
Catronio was pronounced dead at the scene while Ferrante was taken to the hospital and died two days later. Mendoza was taken to the hospital where she was last listed in fair condition. Police are waiting for a toxicology report before deciding what charges will be filed against her.
“It is unknown at this time if Mendoza was driving under the influence,” said Sgt. Mark Wysocky of the Florida Highway Patrol.
Not helping Mendoza right now are the series of tweets she’s made to her “pothead princess” Twitter account in the days and hour before the fatal collision.…Continue Reading
Melcher-Dallas, IA – Before I get started with this bullying article, let me say that I think the word “bullying” is used way too much lately, often used in any situation where someone is mean to another – regardless of any signs of continued harassment or if the perceived victim is 8-years-old or 38. I feel this effectively waters the word down, and is an insult to all of the kids who suffer through true bullying every day of their lives.
Honestly, a lot of times I hear the word “bullying” used and can’t help but imagine Donald Sutherland in Invasion of the Body Snatchers, pointing at someone with his mouth agape, but screaming “Buuuuuuulllllly!!!” in an attempt to direct the anonymous, online horde of professional pitchfork and torch holders to a new target. It’s why I stay away from a lot of bully bandwagon stories that ultimately lead to nothing but online lynch mobs and ridiculous laws being passed to satisfy outraged parents holding voter registration cards.
All that being said, WhoTV reported on 13-year-old Levi Null, a boy in Iowa who has been the target of bullying at Melcher-Dallas High School.…Continue Reading
STPAUL, MN – A teen has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after he raped an elderly woman in revenge for her having him thrown in jail for burglarizing her home.
Curtez Graham was only 16 when he was convicted of burglarizing a 65-year-old woman’s home on two separate occasion in 2011. He was sentenced to Boys Totem Town before being sent to a juvenile correctional facility. While on a 10-day work furlough in June of last year, Graham removed the ankle bracelet monitoring his activities and paid the woman a visit.
He entered the woman’s home for a third time after breaking out a window, and headed to her bedroom on the third floor where she and her male companion were sleeping. They were awakened by Graham as he stood naked in the bedroom brandishing a pair of scissors.
“Bitch, you sent me to prison for 14 months,” he reportedly said before threatening to kill them unless they did what he said. After forcing the man to tie himself up, he raped the woman in front of him.…Continue Reading
Orlando, FL – Police have arrested a 28-year-old man after he allegedly attacked his pregnant sister for eating his chicken nuggets without his permission.
According to reports, Kareem Gordon became furious after he found his 25-year-old sister had eaten his chicken nuggets. After arguing over the nugget faux pas, Gordon followed his sister into her bedroom, yelling “I will punch you down.” He didn’t follow through with that specific threat, but he reportedly grabbed his sister by her neck, pushed her into a nightstand, making her fall to the ground.
Gordon told police he didn’t attack his sister, who is four months pregnant, but was merely trying to have a civil discussion when she slammed the bedroom door in his face. He said she fell after he shoved open the door. Police arrested Gordon anyway, charging him with aggravated battery on a pregnant person. He was booked into the Orange County jail on no bond.
Seems as if Gordon has a history of assaulting women, police saying he has a previous domestic violence incident on record with his wife. …Continue Reading

HASTINGS, MN – Beatriz Fernandez, 37, is looking at second degree assault charges after police say she ran her husband’s new girlfriend off the road before cracking the woman’s skull with an aluminum baseball bat.
On November 13, someone called police to report a female assaulting another woman on the side of a rural road. When officers arrived, they found the victim suffering from a fractured skull.
The victim told police she was driving with her boyfriend, who also happens to be Fernandez’s husband, when Fernandez began ramming the rear of her vehicle. The victim said she was eventually forced to pull over and stop.
When both women exited their vehicles, Fernandez hit her husband’s lover “two to three times with a bat with full-out swings” after Fernandez knocked the victim on the ground. Fernandez’s husband, who’d reportedly ran from the car, told police he left his wife about six weeks ago and that she’d recently found out about his new relationship with the victim.
Officers located Fernandez a short time later.…Continue Reading
ORCHARD PARK, NY – The idiot who fell 30-feet from the upper deck at Ralph Wilson Stadium while attempting to slide down a rail, has been fired from his job.
For those of you who missed the story, the Bills were playing the Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday when cameras captured Rob Hopkins attempting to slide down an outer rail in the 300 level. His dumbass ended up falling backwards and landing on an unsuspecting spectator in the stands below.
“He kind of bounced off him and landed about two rows down on the ground,” said one witness sitting close to where Hopkins landed with a loud derp.
Hopkins and the person he landed on didn’t suffer any life-threatening injuries, but both were taken to the hospital to be checked out and later released. The Buffalo Bills reacted immediately, banning Hopkins from future events at Ralph Wilson Stadium — for life.
“The irresponsible behavior that occurred at yesterday’s game by the fan who fell from the upper deck is a violation of our Fan Code of Conduct and cannot, and will not, be tolerated.…Continue Reading
MADISON, WI – An argument between two groups of women at the meat counter of a Woodman’s Food Market turned into a food fight involving pepper spray, yogurt, bacon, and a frozen turkey.
Police say the fight between the women was an ongoing dispute over money that, for some reason, came to a head at the store’s meat counter. Words were exchanged and two women found themselves facing off against four other women.
One of the women in the larger group pulled out some pepper spray and sprayed the other two. This led to one of the women grabbing a frozen turkey and swinging it around before throwing it at another woman. She missed her intended target, but managed to hit a pallet of bacon, which toppled to the floor.
A 62-year-old man inside the store called 911 to report the fight, telling police he was just hit in the head with a full container of strawberry yogurt. Two of the women began punching each other before rolling around on the floor in the spilled yogurt and bacon.…Continue Reading
ROCKLEDGE, FL – Police say a 36-year-old man brutally beat his stepmother before stuffing her into the trunk of his car.
There are no details regarding what prompted the beating, but the 57-year-old woman told police Thomas Youngman beat her head and face, slammed her head on the garage floor, stuffed her in the trunk of his car and informed her he was going to kill her.
She said Youngman began to drive off, but stopped to open the trunk and take away her cell phone. He then pulled her out of the trunk by her hair and began beating her again. Somehow she was able to escape and run to a neighbor’s for help as Youngman fled the scene.
The woman was taken to the hospital and Youngman was arrested later after he returned home. He was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with great bodily harm, kidnapping, and resisting a law enforcement official without violence.
This isn’t the first time Youngman has been accused of assaulting his stepmom.…Continue Reading
MONROE, NC — A couple in North Carolina are under arrest after their foster child was found cuffed to their front porch with a dead chicken hanging from around his neck.
A sheriff’s deputy responding to an animal services call stopped by the home of Wanda Sue Larson and Dorian Lee Harper, both 57. Piles of garbage were around the home, along with abandoned and rusted-out vehicles. Chickens, turkeys, geese, two llamas and a horse were also found roaming the property, leaving the area with an overwhelming smell of urine and feces.
On the front porch of the home, the deputy found an 11-year-old boy. He was shivering, cuffed to the porch by his ankle, and had a dead chicken hanging from around his neck. Moments later, Dorian came out of the home with another child, releasing several dogs that began attacking the officer.
The deputy retreated back to his patrol car and called for backup. During this time, Dorian uncuffed the boy and removed the dead chicken from around his neck, placing the dead animal on a barrel.…Continue Reading
Granbury, TX – These two were sentenced earlier this month, but I totally missed the story and figured I’d post an article that ends on a good note for change. Justin and Brittany Alston, both 21-years-old, were sentenced to 60 years in prison after teens notified an adult that the couple were starving their 9-month-old baby.
Last December, several teenagers were at a party at the Alstons’ mobile home when they heard Riley crying. When Justin refused to check on his son, a 17-year-old at the party went into the boy’s room and found him emaciated and lying in urine, feces and vomit. His skin was flaking off his body, his bones were showing through his skin, and one of his socks had fused to his foot.
“I was furious and I was shaking and I was breathing hard and I was trying to be as gentle as I could with this baby because I felt like if I just moved a certain way this baby would break. He was so fragile and little,” Magon Rutledge said.…Continue Reading
CHARLOTTE, NC — Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have charged an 11-year-old boy and his mother in connection with the death of a 7-month-old.
According to investigators, 33-year-old Wendy Johnson left her home to run a 45 minute errand, leaving her older son to care for his little brother, Camden Johnson. When she returned home, she found Camden unresponsive in his crib. Camden was taken to the hospital, but he was already dead. Camden reportedly had a hemorrhage to the right eye, injuries to both cheeks, his forehead, nose, back of his head, and to his lip.
Police would first question Wendy, then charge her with involuntary manslaughter and child abuse causing serious bodily injury. However, her older son would later admit to police that he was the one who’d caused his brother’s fatal injuries, using a doll to show how he’d picked up his brother and dropped him on his head three times. He said he put his brother back in his crib and poured water on him in an effort to revive him.…Continue Reading
According to police, 51-year-old Carol Sanders filed for divorce from her husband, 53-year-old Mike Sanders, a little more than a month ago. The couple had a court hearing on Tuesday morning regarding an order of protection Carol had filed.
Hours later, Carol went to the family’s home with her 14-year-old daughter and her 49-year-old brother to gather some personal belongings. What they didn’t know was that Mike had parked his car a couple blocks away and was hiding behind the house in order to ambush them.
While Carol’s brother, 49-year-old Thomas Fitzpatrick, sat in his truck in the driveway she and her daughter went inside the home. That’s when Mike walked up to Thomas and shot him once. Mike shot him a second time after he fell out of the truck.

REDLANDS, CA — Police have arrested 28-year-old Steven Sunny after they say he planted a pipe bomb underneath his ex-wife’s vehicle in an attempt to blow her up, along with the couple’s two young children.
The woman was with her two children in the parking lot of the Redlands Town Center Monday when she noticed a suspicious device underneath her SUV. She immediately called 911 and police responded, quickly evacuating several nearby businesses and taping off several aisles in the parking lot.
Customers and employees were stranded for several hours as the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad used a robot device to remove a pipe bomb from underneath her vehicle and use dogs to perform a sweep of the area to ensure there were no other explosive devices.
Later that night, police would arrest Sunny at a San Bernardino trailer park where his girlfriend lives. He was charged with three counts of attempted murder and possession of an explosive device with intent to kill. He’s being held on $1 million bail.…Continue Reading
WILTON, CT – A 56-year-old woman is the hospital after her pit bull attacked and proceeded to entirely remove one of her arms and partially remove the other. She was rescued by passing motorists who heard her screaming for help from underneath her car.
Anne Murray is in stable condition despite losing one arm, a portion of her other arm below the elbow, and bites from her legs up to the side of her head. She can thank two Good Samaritans for her life, as they were the ones who stopped because they saw the pit bull wandering in the road.
Thinking they were helping the dog, the first motorist who stopped to help corral the dog back in its yard got back inside her car when the dog began acting aggressive towards her. A second motorist who had stopped to help heard screams for help coming from underneath a car in the home’s driveway, and called 911 for help.
The arriving police officer witnessed Murray under the car trying to fend off the dog – a two-year-old male named Tuxedo.…Continue Reading
Lafayette, LA - A woman kidnapped by her violent ex-boyfriend was rescued by family members after they shot and killed her captor.
Last Wednesday, Bethany Arceneaux, 29, was abducted by her estranged boyfriend, Scott Thomas, who is also the father of their 2 year old son. The kidnapping took place in a daycare parking lot as she was picking up their son. A witness observed Bethany screaming, honking the horn and trying to fight off Thomas and begging someone to take the boy. The witness, Derrimetrie Robinson, was able to take the child as Thomas shoved Bethany into his car and sped away.
That evening, police found Thomas’ white Buick near a field with one of Bethany’s shoes in it, but, other than that, there were no new leads and no sign of Bethany, until Friday. That’s when police and family were searching for her in the fields near where Thomas’ Buick was left, and residents gave the family members a tip about an abandoned house in a field nearby. …Continue Reading
ARLINGTON, TX – Back in July we reported on Rosa Esparza, the 54-year-old grandmother who was killed after being thrown from a Six Flags roller coaster.
The family eventually sued Six Flags, the suit revealing some gruesome details regarding Esparza’s death. Now a 20-page police report by the Arlington Police Department reveals that the ride operator didn’t think that Esparza’s safety bar was secured correctly.
On July 19, Esparza was at Six Flags over Texas with her daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren. It was her first time at the theme park, and her first time riding one the park’s signature attractions – the Texas Giant. This wooden coaster has one of the steepest drops in the world for a wooden roller coaster, yet didn’t include seat belts or shoulder harnesses for the rider.
At the time, the only thing holding your ass in the seat was a T-bar mechanism that locks over your lap. Despite her size and shape, Esparza met all the qualifications needed to ride the coaster as evident by the ride operators letting her on in the first place.…Continue Reading
