Anchorage, Alaska - Police say Daniel Pirtle, a double amputee with metal, prosthetic legs, went into a Walmart and shot a manager after getting into an argument over Pirtle’s unrestrained dog.
Police say that on Saturday afternoon, 45-year-old Daniel Pirtle went inside a crowded Walmart in a motorized cart, accompanied by his unrestrained service dog. Pirtle got into an argument with the store’s assistant manager, 33-year-old Jason Mahi, after Mahi asked Pirtle to restrain his dog.
The argument escalated to the point that Pirtle pulled out a gun and shot Mahi in the stomach. Afterwards, Pirtle navigated the motorized cart through the aisles, making his way towards the store’s entrance. He was apprehended by police near the front of the store where officers took a handgun from him, as well as his legs, before placing him in a police car.

BOYNTON BEACH, FL – A child’s birthday party at a Florida Chuck E. Cheese’s ended with the arrests of at least three people, including the birthday boy’s mother, after a large brawl broke out and someone got shot.
The fight started after two men in the restroom exchanged words, then escalated into an 18-man brawl inside the dining area of the restaurant in which, according to the store manager, the birthday boy’s grandmother was even trampled.
Employees got the unruly crowd out of the store where some of the men drove to a nearby location to continue their fight, and where one man pulled out a gun and shot the passenger of another car. The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the shooter is still at large.
While that was happening, the boy’s mother, Briana Walker, was being arrested in the parking lot with two other men on drug charges and defrauding an innkeeper. Police say they fled the restaurant without paying the almost $300 check.
Police also said Walker’s purse contained part of a Xanax pill and a small amount of marijuana, and that someone on her side of the car had also thrown out packages containing marijuana, Xanax, crack cocaine and morphine.…Continue Reading
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – A woman received a horrific gift on Saturday when the family’s dog found a dead baby girl wrapped in plastic and brought the corpse home.
The woman was house-siting on Saturday, when the homeowner’s 6-year-old dog, Luke, carried the baby like a newborn puppy and laid the corpse down by her feet.
“It was three to five pounds and was still very fresh,” she said. She added that Luke, a mix-breed dog, would never hurt anyone and that there was no trauma to the newborn’s body.
Investigators said there are very few clues that could help them solve the case, and they have no suspects. “We don’t know where the baby came from, if it was born in the area outside or if someone brought the baby out there to dispose of it,” OKC Police Capt. Dexter Nelson said.
The house is located in the 15000 block of South Air Depot and Luke is known to roam a large section of the surrounding area, making it tough to find out exactly where the dog found the newborn.…Continue Reading
NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. – Police say 44-year-old Lisa Franklin, a substitute teacher at the Sacred Heart School,was having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy that started when the boy was just 12.
Franklin met the boy at Sacred Heart School and was able to continue a relationship with him, after she left the school in 2012, by befriending the boy’s parents and becoming his personal, at-home tutor as well as being allowed to spend social time with the boy.
“The parents trusted that she was acting as an adult and doing the proper thing,’” said New Windsor Deputy Police Chief Rick Hovey. After the parents found some text messages revealing Franklin was teaching their son how to put his erect penis into her 44-year-old mouth, they cock-blocked him by notifying police.
Police ended up arresting Franklin, who is married with two teenage children of her own, and charged her with second-degree rape and sexual conduct against a child. Additional charges are expected because Franklin allegedly took the boy to multiple jurisdictions so he could throw his hot dog down her hallway.…Continue Reading

Police got involved after the video was posted on someone’s Facebook. In the video, you can see Loughrey encouraging her daughter to fight another girl who had supposedly been harassing her. The victim consistently says she does not want to fight, but Loughrey’s daughter throws the first punch at the insistence of her loud-mouthed mother, just like another mom we featured today.

MILWAUKEE — Cell phone video was posted on Youtube that showed Jason Scales body slamming a DMV security guard after he was asked to leave the building, while other patrons cheered him on.
The 35-year-old man had been asked to leave the north side DMV after he refused to turn down the music on his cell phone. Scales got mad and refused to leave, so a security guard stepped in to escort Scales out of the building.
As you can see in the video below, the guard has some trouble getting Scales to leave, and ends up getting body slammed to the ground while the crowd laughed and cheered for Scales. After getting off the ground, the guard pulled his gun on Scales as he finally left the building.
Milwaukee police say the man was eventually arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, but no felony assault charges.
Law enforcement expert Brian Dorow said that while the confrontation would have been challenging for an experienced officer to control, guards or officers should not touch an unruly person if they are not posing an eminent threat.…Continue Reading
CLIFTON HEIGHTS, PA – Police arrested 45-year-old Michele Davenport after they say she enticed her 12-year-old daughter to fight another 12-year-old girl in a school parking lot, an incident that was caught on video.
No reports on how police originally got involved, but they released video taken at Primos Elementary School that showed Davenport encouraging her 12-year-old daughter to fight another girl they allege is her daughter’s bully.
The girls do not seem eager to fight, but after Davenport’s insistent yelling – including Davenport telling the other girl she wants to see her daughter kick her ass and informing her she would jump in if any bystanders intervened – the girls finally start swinging in that funny way girls do when they fight.
As the girls are going at it, Davenport can be heard telling her daughter to “hit her in the face!” and ”get her on the ground!” At one point they stop fighting and the victim offers a handshake to Davenport’s daughter, but Davenport eggs them on and the girls continue fighting.
“You can see [in the video] that the kids really don’t want to fight, but the mother is so adamant and profane that eventually the 12-year-olds get in a fight,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said in a news conference.…Continue Reading

DRAPER, UT – Police have arrested two morons after they hid razor blades inside doughnuts in an effort to make an injury claim against the store that sold them.
Two scammers, 39-year-old Carrol Leazer Harmdan and 35-year-old Michael Conder, thought they had figured out a way to make some easy money. They bought doughnuts from a Smith’s store in Draper, then ate them along with some broken razor blades they had hidden inside them.
Their plan was to file an injury claim against the store, and then enjoy all the money they would be awarded for their pain and suffering. To make the incident seem more realistic, they actually swallowed the razor blades and even gave some of the razor blade-laden doughnuts to an unwitting co-worker.
The co-worker is the one who called police after taking a bite out of one of the tainted doughnuts and found it contained razor blade pieces. Police worked with Smith’s to unravel the duo’s genius plan and ended up arresting them both.
“During the course of the investigation we were able to determine that they intentionally inserted these broken razor blades into the doughnuts that they had purchased at Smith’s and then swallowed the razor blades with the doughnuts,” said authorities.…Continue Reading
DEFIANCE COUNTY, OH – The shooting death of a man in 2003, once considered accidental, is now being called a murder orchestrated by Judith Hawkey, a woman who prosecutors say forced her 10-year-old stepson to shoot his father to death.
On Nov. 3, 2003, police responded to an accidental shooting call at the home of Robert Breininger and his then wife, Judith Hawkey. Police would find Robert dead in a bedroom from a single gunshot wound to the head. It was claimed that the shooting was accidental and involved Breininger’s 10-year-old son.
While the death was ruled accidental, a recent investigation has prosecutors charging Hawkey with murder. Prosecutors allege Hawkey tortured and abused the 10-year-old over a three year period, and forced the boy to kill his own father.
No word on what information led to the case being re-opened a decade later, but a grand jury indicted Hawkey this month. ”The information on what caused the investigation to be reopened as a homicide is not something I can comment on publicly,” said Defiance County Prosecuting Attorney Morris Murray.…Continue Reading
MOSES LAKE, WA - Police have charged 14-year-old Nathon Brooks with two counts of attempted first-degree murder after they say he got angry with his parents over being grounded, and then shot them both.
Moses Lake police say the shooting happened Friday night at the family’s home after Nathon got upset with his parents after they grounded him for being tardy from school. Part of his punishment was that he could use no electronic devices, which included his ability to play video games.
Nathan vented his frustration that night as he listened to music and contemplated killing his parents. He ended up taking a .22 caliber handgun from the family’s gun cabinet, loading it, and sneaking into his parents’ bedroom as they slept.
He first shot his father, 38-year-old Jonathan Brooks, in the back of the head. He then shot his mother, 39-year-old Elizabeth Brooks, in the face. He fired at his father again as the man rolled out of bed, then fired at his mother two more times when she tried to sit up.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA – A fight at a downtown Los Angeles strip club ended with two men losing some legs after they were pinned between two cars.
Police are investigating a fight that broke out between 40-year-old Terrence Conrad Meeks and two other men inside Sam’s Hofbrau at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
The fight spilled out into the club’s parking lot where, according to police, Meeks got behind the wheel of his white BMW and rammed his vehicle into the two men, pinning them both against their Mini Cooper.

San Francisco, CA - An unidentified homeless man was crushed to death after he decided to take residence on top of a San Francisco subway elevator.
The man was found Sunday morning after someone taking the elevator up to the top level of the Montgomery Station called to say the elevator had stalled after he heard a crunching noise followed by a scream.
Rescuers would find the body of a man wedged between the elevator and the wall of the shaft. Personal belongings and bedding were also found on top of the car, according to transit spokeswoman Luna Salaver. The man was not carrying any identification.
Salaver added that there are only two ways for someone to get on top of the elevator; ventilation shafts or the hatch door in the roof of the elevator. The ventilation shafts were found to be secure, but to get through the hatch, someone would have had to help the man.
“We don’t understand why anyone would seek refuge in an elevator shaft. It is disturbing, upsetting and highly unusual,” Salaver said.…Continue Reading
