Nearly two hours after first the first call was made, Powers was brought off the mountain and transported to a Boulder hospital, where she was treated and released. Taylor “Buzzkill” Powers was eventually cited for unlawful consumption of a controlled substance and “further charges are pending against others involved,” deputies reported.…Continue Reading

Port St. Lucie, FL — Tyler Hadley, the teen accused of beating his parents to death with a hammer then threw a party, has filed a notice declaring he will rely on an insanity plea in his upcoming trial.
For those of you who do not remember this psycho and what he did to his parents, let me refresh your memory. According to Hadley’s best friend, Michael Mandell, the teen had repeatedly talked about killing his parents, 47-year-old Mary Jo Hadley and 54-year-old Blake Hadley, but no one took him seriously until July 16, 2011.
That’s when Hadley sent out Facebook invitations to a party he was throwing at his house. ”Party at my crib tonight … maybe,” he posted on Facebook at 1:15 p.m. July 16, about four hours before the homicides. He updated at 8:15 p.m.: “Party at my house, hmu (“hit me up” or “contact me”).”
During this party, Hadley told his best friend that he’d killed his parents earlier that day. Not believing him, Hadley took Mandell to his parents bedroom where Mandell could see the legs of Hadley’s father sticking out from underneath a pile of household items.…Continue Reading
FREDERICKSBURG, TX – After snorting some 25c-NBOMe, a synthetic hallucinogenic that can be bought online, 16-year-old Sam Herrera died from cardiac arrest and 17-year-old James Jarreau ended up recouping in the hospital.
According to Fredericksburg Police Lt. Steve Wetz, a teen who lives at the home where the boys ingested the drug told investigators he watched Herrera and Jarreau snort the white powder at around 1:30 a.m Saturday.
An hour later, the two boys were hallucinating, yelling at each other and being destructive. The owner of the home woke up and called 911, but by the time emergency responders arrived, Herrera was unconscious.
“When we got there the Herrera subject was unconscious and the other one was hallucinating strongly,” Wetz said.
Both teens were taken to the hospital where Herrera was pronounced dead from cardiac arrest. Jarreau was in critical condition, but by Monday his condition was upgraded to stable.
Wetz said the boys bought the drug from another student at Fredericksburg High School, who had purchased the drug off the Internet. Some of the drug was recovered at the home and sent to a lab for testing.…Continue Reading
Nashville, TN – Todd Harrell, the bassist for that horrible band responsible for the horrible song “Kryptonite,” has been charged with vehicular homicide after he drunkenly hit a pickup truck with his car, killing the driver.

GAFFNEY, S.C. — Samantha Rhinehart was sentenced to 20 years in prison after the 28-year-old admitted to being under the influence of meth when she caused a wreck that claimed the life of her 8-year-old daughter and injured two others.
Back in January, Rhinehart was driving a 2001 Ford truck with seven passengers, including her 8-year-old daughter, Anna Marie Rhinehart. She was doing around 62 mph in a 45 mph zone when she lost control of the truck and ended up slamming into a tree. Rhinehart’s daughter was thrown from the truck on impact and died from multiple head injuries.
Rhinehart, who was driving with a suspended driver’s license and admitted she’d used meth sometime before the crash, was arrested and charged with felony driving under the influence with a death, and two counts of felony driving under the influence with great bodily injury.
The charges were upgraded to reckless homicide, two counts of first-degree assault and battery, and child endangerment after tests revealed the that meth was in her urine, and not in her blood, meaning she’d taken the drug shortly before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle with seven passengers.…Continue Reading

Deputies initially responded to the couple’s home after a report of a domestic violence assault, but once inside, they found the couples’ children, ages 1, 2 and 5, living in squalid conditions.
One of the younger children was sleeping in a crib on a soiled mattress with exposed metal springs. Next to the child was rotting sandwich meat. Another child was found in her room, naked with what smelled and looked like urine in her hair and several insects crawling on the child.

West Palm Beach, FL - Michael Brewer, the teen we featured back in 2009 after three boys set him on fire, was arrested after being found in the possession of a cornucopia of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Listening to Michael scream in agony after being set on fire by three other boys, ranks as one of the more disturbing 911 calls I have ever listened to. It happened back in 2009 when Brewer was confronted by 15-year-old Matthew Bent, who was angry over some dispute regarding a marijuana pipe.
Bent allegedly ordered 15-year-old Denver Jarvis to pour a bottle of rubbing alcohol on Brewer, which he did. Immediately afterwards, 15-year-old Jesus Mendez used a lighter to set Brewer on fire. Engulfed in flames, Brewer saved himself by jumping into a nearby swimming pool.
Brewer would spend months in the hospital recovering from his injuries while Matthew Bent and Jesus Mendez would end up sentenced to 11 years in prison. Denver Jarvis would be sentenced to eight years in prison.
On Wednesday, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper stopped Brewer, now 18, after seeing him making an illegal U-turn at a red light.…Continue Reading
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

In a statement released to The Watch, Jen and Randy Charrette stated they had hired a 16-year-old girl to help around their vacation home. On February 28, the girl was babysitting their two boys when she let her 17-year-old inside the home.
Realizing that her boyfriend was in a violent, drug-crazed state, she locked herself in a bathroom and left Axel outside the home and his older brother in another part of the house. For reasons unknown at this time, the boyfriend hurt Axel and then tossed him into a pool where he drowned.

Florida - Jonathan Wayne Glass is behind bars after his child drank Drano from a sippy cup inside a Florida home meth lab.
The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office said the incident happened on Feb 20th, when an unsupervised child found a sippy cup in the bathroom of an apartment where meth was being produced. Thinking it contained juice, the child drank the drain cleaner and the reaction was immediate.
Police say that the people inside the apartment waited 30 minutes before trying to get help for the child, who was eventually transported to the hospital for treatment and remains in critical condition.
The reason why the Drano was being stored in a child’s sippy cup inside an apartment where a child resides is because it’s a common component used in the manufacture of meth, and Florida.
Jonathan Wayne Glass is being held in the Santa Rosa County Jail without bond. He’s been charged with one count of cruelty towards a child, abuse that causes great bodily harm or disability, three counts of possession of a harmful drug without a prescription, four counts of drug possession without a prescription, one count of opium or derivative trafficking and one count of possessing or using drug equipment.…Continue Reading
In a scene that could have been pulled directly out of a Cheech and Chong movie, two brothers used some of the winnings to buy some meth and weed last Friday night. One of the men was using two large cans of butane lighter fluid in the kitchen to refill butane torches the siblings planned on using with their bongs.
“He emptied a couple of big cans of butane lighter fluid during this, leaking butane into the air,” said Sgt. Bruce Watts. “The butane vapor cloud reach a pilot light in the furnace and as you might expect – kaboom.”
All the news reports keep saying “blew up home” but I haven’t seen any pictures of it, or any reports of specific damages – I used “blow up house” simply because it makes for a good headline.
Police did say there were children in the home at the time of the explosion, but they were not injured.…Continue Reading
According to the documents provided by the fine folks over at The Smoking Gun, the doting dipshit passed a couple of Oxy pills to her spawn during a jailhouse visit Tuesday.
Deputies have not indicated whether there was any tongue involved in the alleged transfer.
The spawn, 30-year-old William Partridge, was being detained at the facility on weapons charges, and is now facing an additional charge of promoting prison contraband. He will be arraigned on the new charges Monday.
Police say the drugs were intended for Partridge’s personal use, not for resale.
Mom, Kimberly Margeson, was charged with a felony drug count and one misdemeanor count of promoting prison contraband.
After posting $2,000 bail, Margeson was released. She has since pleaded not guilty to both charges.
Now, if you’ll pardon me, I must find a pointy stick so I can dig that nasty visual out of my brain space.…Continue Reading
Jacksonville, FL — Last year we reported on 35-year-old Dalina Nicholas, the woman accused of repeatedly pimping her six-year-old daughter out to homeless men in exchange for cash and crack. The other day she pleaded guilty to four counts of child neglect.
For those of you who missed the original story, police were flagged down by a homeless man who reported witnessing Nicholas’ daughter being sexually assaulted while he was in her home doing drugs. He said that over a two year period, he had witnessed the girl being sexually abused by other men, including a time when Nicholas accepted $20 from a man and then instructed her daughter to get naked so the man could perform oral sex on her.
He finally decided to do something about it after the girl confided to him what was happening to her and asked him to help her make it stop. The investigation that followed would lead to the arrest of Nicholas, who had fled to Georgia, and four men.
