“Mr. Briones was observed to be having sexual intercourse with the passenger and sped off… at a high rate of speed,” the police officer wrote in a criminal complaint. “Their activities presented a danger to others in the roadway as exhibited by the accident.”
Police said that after Briones sped off, he crashed his 2006 Ford Explorer into another car after running a red light. The resulting collision ejected his female passenger from the vehicle. She was found on the ground, naked, and suffering from deep cuts to her face and hands.
Witnesses stated Briones was obviously drunk when he exited his vehicle and eventually tried to drive away from the scene, leaving the naked woman behind. When one of the witnesses took the keys from the ignition, Briones ran off and hid behind a nearby cactus wearing one shoe and with his shorts on inside-out.…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.
The incident happened Friday night in Nashville, where police say Harrell was speeding in his car when he clipped a pickup truck driven by Paul Howard Shoulders. The truck was sent careening down an embankment and Shoulders was killed after being ejected from his truck. Harrell suffered minor injuries.
Police said 41-year-old Harrell showed signs of impairment at the scene and admitted he’d consumed hard cider along with some Lortab and Xanax. After being taken to jail, deputies found Harrell was hiding a bag in his sock that contained 8 Xanax pills, 24 oxycodone pills and 4 oxymorphone pills.
Todd Harrell is currently in jail on $100,000 bond on charges of vehicular homicide and bringing controlled substances into the jail.
harrell had gotten into similar trouble last year in D’Iberville, MI, after crashing his black Cadillac into the rear of a pickup truck while intoxicated.…Continue Reading
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
For those who don’t know who hell this lady is, she played a character on Melrose Place, one of the worst shows to come out of the ’90s aside from Home Improvement. I have no clue what she did after the show was finally cancelled, but in 2010 she made headlines after getting behind the wheel of an SUV with a blood alcohol level that was three times past the legal limit.
After rear-ending Maureen Ruckelshaus, Locane-Bovenizer refused to get out of her car and fled the scene. Ruckelshaus followed Locane-Bovenizer for four mile, watching as the 40-year-old took out a few mailboxes. When a car moved out from in front of Locane-Bovenizer, she accelerated to 50 mph and plowed into the passenger side of a car turning into a driveway.
The driver of that car, Fred Seeman, was seriously injured but survived. His wife, 60-year-old Helene Seeman, was his passenger and took the brunt of the impact.…Continue Reading
PHILADELPHIA, MS.- Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell says Duane John, 34, has been charged with six felony counts of DUI manslaughter after a crash this weekend that killed an adult and his five children.
Authorities say John was drunk when the Dodge Durango he was driving went off the road, down an embankment, and into a rain-swollen creek shortly after midnight Saturday. Also in the SUV were five of John’s children along with three other adults. No one was wearing their seat belts.
Aside from John, only two other people survived the crash; Deanna Jim, who is the children’s mother, and Dale Chickaway. Killed were Dasyanna John, 9; Duane John, 8; Bobby John, 7; Quinton John, 4; Kekaimeas John, 18 months; and Chickaway’s wife, Dianne Lewis Chickaway, 37.
Waddel said that all of the deceased were still inside the vehicle at the time of their recovery, and that he believes they all drowned.
Duane John was charged after being released from the Neshoba County General Hospital where he’d been hospitalized for hypothermia and water inhalation.…Continue Reading
SOMERVILLE, N.J. - Amy Locane-Bovenizer, a former “Melrose Place” actress, has been found guilty of vehicular homicide after her drunk ass killed a woman by ramming her SUV into the side of another vehicle.
Back in June 2010, Locane-Bovenizer had tossed back some drinks at a cast party before tossing down a few more at a barbeque. She then chose to get behind the wheel of an SUV with a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit and wound up rear-ending Maureen Ruckelshaus.
Ruckelshaus confronted Locane-Bovenizer, who she says was obviously drunk, and asked her to get out of her vehicle she refused to turn off. Locane-Bovenizer responded to this request by fleeing the scene and taking out a few mailboxes in the process. Ruckelshaus gave followed behind Locane-Bovenizer for four miles at speeds that topped a whopping 35 mph.
But Locane-Bovenizer saw her chance to put some distance between herself and Ruckelshaus after the car in front of her moved out of the way. That’s when Locane-Bovenizer accelerated to 50 mph and ended up plowing into the passenger side of a car turning left into a driveway.…Continue Reading
DELTONA, Fla. – I’ll be honest. I’m only posting this story because of the mugshot. The details surrounding the moments before it was taken do not stray far from you average “drunken idiot resisting arrest” story we are all familiar with.
Police say they found the man pictured, 29-year-old Kelsey Smith, sitting inside a running Audi that was parked at an intersection. Officers noticed the smell of alcohol, Smith’s slurred speech and sporting eyes that resembled a pair of freshly f*cked assholes.
They ordered Smith out of the vehicle to participate in some field sobriety tests, but he refused and was Tased in the leg.
“The Taser cycle was basically ineffective, and Smith continued resisting,” the police report said.
When police tried to put handcuffs on Smith, he became physically combative and was Tased a second time. Finally secured, Smith repeatedly banged his head and face on the roof of the police car, causing his nose to bleed. Smith continued being combative and started spitting blood at the officers, so a hobble was placed on his legs and a spit hood over his face.…Continue Reading
BELLEVUE, Ohio – Police in Ohio have arrested a woman for assault for spitting blood on a nurse and a police officer after her arrest for drunk driving.
Police responding to a home on a call of a domestic dispute early Thursday morning would find a man there with a mark under his eye. He informed them that he had been struck by 27-year-old Tiffany Pocock. Officers would also found a mini van with its driver’s side door ajar and a bottle of whiskey sitting in the center console with a third of it missing.
The missing third was found nearby, inside an intoxicated Pocock who was placed under arrest for OVI. That’s when she began fighting with officers and attempted to injure herself. An attempt she was quite successful at, judging by her mugshot.
First she started by repeatedly ramming her head into the police car door as she was being helped into it. Then, once inside the car, she began ranting about missing an appointment later that morning and started banging her face against the patrol car’s safety divider.…Continue Reading
According to a probable cause affidavit, Brandy Star Williams, 31, was arrested early Friday after police officers saw her vehicle hit a curb and exceed the speed limit. She was stopped and a portable breath test measured Williams’ BAC to be 0.188 percent.
Williams was taken to a police station to undergo an official breath test. According to police, while seated and waiting – in handcuffs – next to Muncie police officer Michael Rehfus, Williams “stood up and she bolted out the door.” Rehfus’ report said Williams then “jumped over a railing and fled on foot.” Rehfus and other officers chased Williams on foot, but reportedly lost her about two-tenths of a mile away. Wow. Two-tenths…
“Officers in pursuit. [pant] Suspect now two-tenths of a mile northeast?!? [pant] She’s a freakin’ MACHINE!!! [pant]”
Williams would be located a short time later at her home – nearly three miles from the police station from which she had ‘hurriedly departed.’ She was taken back into custody.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL - Police say a drunk driver was twice the legal limit when she struck and killed a man walking in a crosswalk early Saturday morning.
Bianca Garcia, 21, was intoxicated while speeding in a Jeep Liberty about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Witnesses say they watched as Garcia lost control of the vehicle and struck 32-year-old Jesse Bradley in a crosswalk. Instead of stopping and helping the man, the drunken moron drove away. She was stopped a few blocks away after turning the wrong way on a one-way street.
Garcia refused to take field sobriety tests but admitted to police she’d been drinking in at least three bars before the accident. After being taken to the hospital it was determined she had a blood alcohol content of .168, more than double the legal limit.
While Bianca Garcia was refusing field sobriety tests, Bradley, a law student currently on leave from Northwestern University, was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Garcia was charged with aggravated DUI resulting in death, DUI and reckless driving, ticketed for driving the wrong way on a one-way street and not having a driver’s license or insurance.…Continue Reading
Sherman, NY – New York state sheriff deputies responding to a report of an underage drinking on a rural road presumably faced imminent death when – upon turning on to the road in question – they encountered several Amish buggies heading directly toward them in both lanes at a high rate of speed. Chautauqua County Sheriff Joe Gerace said Monday that there was, “reason to believe” that the buggies were racing.
Police noted that the drivers – who were jockeying for position while using both lanes of the roadway – tried to steer around the patrol vehicle. One of the buggies was unsuccessful, colliding with the patrol car and rolling onto its side in a horrific spectacle of illegal street racing.
A passenger in the ill-fated buggy, Marvin Byler, 19, sustained minor injuries when his leg was trapped underneath. The operator of the flipped buggy, Marty Troyer, 20, and a second passenger, Marianne Troyer, 18, were not injured. The horse became separated from the buggy and ran into a nearby
pit area barn.…
Nashville, TN - In the early hours of December 10, Erin Brown, 21, and her boyfriend – who had been out drinking – reportedly decided to call it a night. Believing that she was too drunk to drive, Brown handed the keys of her Toyota Scion over to her boyfriend, Trevor Bradshaw, 23.
They didn’t make it very far. Bradshaw, who police say was speeding, hit two pedestrians, crossed a median, and struck a taxi cab head on. According to witnesses, Bradshaw then loudly declared ’10-15 times’ that he was drunk before fleeing – only to be brought back to the scene by two witnesses. According to police, Bradshaw fled again before police arrived on the scene.
After being transported to a local hospital, Michael Brooksher, 22, died on Dec. 12. Booksher’s friend, Tommy Allen, 23, was in a coma for nearly two months after being struck. He died due to his injuries on Feb. 7. The taxi driver and Brown reportedly suffered only minor injuries. Brown remained on the scene.…Continue Reading
Hobe Sound, FL - Kevin Brann, 41, left quite an impression on a Florida deputy after being stopped following a rear-end collision with another vehicle. The collision reportedly occurred just before noon last Friday.
Brann – who the deputy observed as strongly smelling of alcohol, and having slurred speech and bloodshot eyes – initially denied that he had been drinking. According to the police affidavit, after failing a field sobriety test, Brann admitted to drinking and was arrested for drunk driving with property damage. He was then placed in the deputy’s patrol car.
In court documents, the deputy described the eventful trip to the Martin County Jail saying that Brann both urinated and defecated on himself while in the back of the vehicle. The deputy goes on to write, “The defendant had a sexual anus plug in his rectum, which he removed, or it fell out in the rear of my patrol car.”
Perhaps now is a bad time for me to propose “becoming a police officer” to all of you job seekers out there…
Blood analysis would subsequently show Brann testing with impressive blood-alcohol levels of .409 and .412, respectively.…Continue Reading
Mansfield, OH – Police say that on the night of Jan. 31, Paul Lovely, 44, swerved off the road, over-corrected, and ended up hitting a tree while intoxicated.
“At that point he got out of the vehicle, and – with a bottle of whiskey in his hand – walked east to Lexington Avenue and waited for the light to turn green,” Mansfield police Officer Korey Kaufman said.
“The light turned green and he just came out of nowhere,” Jordan Eagleston, the driver of the first vehicle to hit Lovely, said. “I don’t know why he would try to cross the road then.”
Police reports say that the impact from Eagleston’s car sent Lovely airborne. He landed in the street. Lovely was then struck by a second vehicle while laying on the ground.
“When we found him, he had a bottle of liquor laying next to him in the road,” Police Sgt. Ken Carroll said.
Lovely was transported to a local hospital with injuries. He was initially listed as being in stable condition.…Continue Reading
Kalida, OH - Ohio state police say Dylan T. Brinkman, 25, was driving about 1am Saturday on a rural highway when his vehicle dropped off the east side of the roadway, he overcorrected, and then slid off the west side of the road.
Brinkman’s SUV reportedly struck a utility pole broadside on its passenger side which severed the pole and brought the power lines crashing down. Authorities said that Brinkman – who is suspected by police to have been drinking – then got out of his vehicle and began walking down the road.
The police report goes on to say that nearby resident, 42-year-old Michael E. Feldman (pictured), was at home when his power went out. Police said that the power outage prompted Feldman to leave his wife and 3 and 1/2-year-old daughter behind while he got into his car and drove the one-half mile to the crash site to help.
Once there, he got out of his vehicle to check the now empty SUV and – while walking to the crashed vehicle – stepped on a live power line, fell on to it due to the initial shock, and was electrocuted.…Continue Reading
Kinston, NC - According to police, Krystal Jones, 24, was preoccupied by her huffing when she drove her car into a building in Kinston, North Carolina.
The building – which had reportedly been a pet store – was being renovated to become a church. More ‘renovation’ is now needed, as Jones squarely smashed it all to hell.
Jones was jailed on a $1,000 bond and, at last report, was still in custody. Police charged her with careless and reckless driving, driving left of the center line and inhaling toxic vapors.
The ‘driving left of the center line’ thing may seem like grasping. It turns out that some grasping was necessary as, North Carolina authorities say, she can not be charged with DWI because the physiological artifacts of huffing dissipate too quickly for impairment to be established post-incident.
It is unfortunate that – apparently – driving through a freakin’ building isn’t a crime…
That said, the fact of the matter is that this incident turned out comparatively well. This case comes on the heals of a couple of more tragic cases.…Continue Reading
“Officer Jason Mazza observed a vehicle on Route 125 drive slowly by,” deputy police Chief Kathleen Jones said. “[The patrol officer] heard a loud noise and observed the car was missing the rear driver’s side tire, driven on its rim only. It wasn’t flat, there was no tire on it at all.”
Officer Jason Mazza pulled Short over and approached. Shockingly, the officer reported smelling a ‘strong odor of alcohol.’ Mazza questioned Short and noted that he appeared ‘disoriented.’
“Short believed at the time of the stop that he was in Methuen, Massachusetts,” Jones said. “He told the officer he couldn’t find a jack to change his tire, but couldn’t explain why there was no tire on the car.”
After failing a field sobriety test, a police search of the vehicle yielded a substance suspected to be marijuana and some paraphernalia.…Continue Reading
Peterborough, UK – Kevin Breedon, 34, had a bad night. Just after 2AM on October 30, UK police reportedly found the drunken Breedon waving an 18-inch machete at his fiancée and her 17-year-old son outside his home. It was not reported why.
For their safety, one of the responding officers immediately got the woman and her son into the back of his patrol car. According to court documents, Breedon responded by striking the vehicle repeatedly with the machete in a ‘frenzy of blows’ as the officer tried to drive away. The officer was able to drive away in an effort to get the subjects of Breedon’s ire to a local police station.
Court documents described that, after the patrol car had left, Breedon got into the woman’s Ford Focus to pursue them. In the chaos, though, Breedon had lost track of which patrol car his fiancée and her son were in and began pursuing the wrong police car.
Pursuing a police car… Hmmm…
In court, prosecutors described Breedon chasing the police car driven by Pc Barry Gray through the streets of the town of St.…Continue Reading
Mount Olive, NJ — Vincent Pasquarello, 19, has racked up a myriad of charges after a (hopefully) out-of-the-ordinary night. Police first became interested in Pasquarello after they were called by a diner in response to Pasquarello allegedly using a fake credit card to pay a $17.50 bill for a meal he had shared with his female companion. Police said that the couple told the diner staff that they were going outside to get money from their car – but then drove off.
Staff at the diner reported a description of the vehicle the fled in and reported it to police. A patrol officer saw a car matching the description and pulled it over. Police said that the officer identified the driver as the suspect from the diner. The officer also reportedly noted a “heavy odor of alcoholic beverages” and asked the driver to step out of the vehicle.
Police said that the driver, Pasquarello, shifted the car into drive and quickly accelerated from the scene. The patrol officer attempted to grab Pasquarello from the vehicle as he accelerated and had to free himself as the car drove off, police said.…Continue Reading
Illinois – Police arrested an 18-year-old drunk chick who crashed her car on Saturday because, according to police, she was upset over her boyfriend not taking her to see that crappy Twilight movie.
Olivia Ornelas, 18, was charged with drunken driving and unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor after her car was found in a ditch at 12:04 a.m. Saturday morning. The car she was trying to drive while “extremely intoxicated” was missing a front right tire.
She reportedly told deputies that she had ended up in the roadside ditch because her boyfriend had upset her when he didn’t take her to see the new Twilight movie as planned.
I gotta commend the boyfriend if he bailed on this loopy broad on purpose as sometimes the vagina just isn’t worth the hassle. Hell, Sofía Vergara could ask me to go to the new Twilight movie and my immediate response would be me telling her to go f*ck herself.
I know, I know… it’s almost cliche to hate on Twilight. But I’m dead serious.…Continue Reading
