Bethlehem, PA - A 21 year-old man is dead after he drove off the top of a casino’s 7- story parking garage.
Early yesterday morning Robert Jamison drove off the roof level of the parking garage for the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem. His Ford Escort smashed through the guards put in place to prevent just that sort of thing and plummeted nose-first to the pavement below. Firefighters
scooped pulled the man from the wreckage and he was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead an hour later from severe head trauma.
As for official statements, there isn’t much to go on. Police spokesman David Kravatz stated “”It’s not likely that he rolled out of a spot.” Police also stated there were no brake marks to be seen and the barrier was made to withstand an impact up to 65 mph. In other words, the dude was hauling serious ass.
The death was thus ruled a suicide by Lehigh County Coroner Scott Grim who, aside from having the best goddamn name for a coroner I’ve ever come across, also stated that there was no suicide note found.…Continue Reading

As he was walking out, he was confronted by his three angry daughters who were upset that he had pulled out over $3000 from their mother’s bank account and gambled $1000 of it away instead of paying the bills. One of his daughters pushed him up against the wall causing him to slam his head while another took his wallet and the keys to his 2004 Impala. Vickie Dennis Dempsey, 48; Trenieshia Juanique Farmer, 28; and Monica Jere Farmer-Garmon, 39, were all arrested and charged with battery, grand theft auto and robbery by sudden snatching. They told police they did get into an altercation over him gambling away bill money and admitted they were keeping the car from him but denied taking his wallet. Their mother told police she was aware her daughters were planning on doing something to their father, but she did not give them permission to take the car that was returned two hours after police were called.…Continue Reading
LA CENTER, Wash – Police Sgt. Jerry Lester was eating lunch at the Palace Casino when security officers approached him and informed him that a little boy was sitting in a Lincoln Navigator in the parking lot. They paged the 3-year-old boy’s mother and before long, 32-year-old Valerie Tran came outside drunk and just couldn’t understand what the big deal was. She didn’t understand why they were upset at her leaving her kid in a car with no food, spoiled milk and a soiled diaper while she gambled…for thirteen hours. I mean, she would come out of the casino and check on him ever few hours or so. Like, gosh! Cops gave the kid a teddy bear and some fresh clothes while casino employees brought him some water and a PB & J. Child protective services took the boy and charged Tran with leaving a child unattended in a vehicle — a gross misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of two years in jail and a $1,000 fine. Anyone find a pic of her and I’ll send you a pair of my underwear I was about to give to Goodwill (nevermind, Coyote wanted ‘em more than anyone).…Continue Reading

Waukesha, WI–Valentina Grenader, 45, had a secret. She blew $800 at the casino and had to come clean with her husband, Mark. She could have made him a nice romantic dinner and wow’ed him with her fine culinary skills, making it easier to ease in the subject of the gambling debt. She could have brought him flowers and chocolate, hell..it works for men. Maybe she did go with one of those options, who knows? It’s what she did after the admission of guilt that earned her a spot here on the Dreamin’ Demon.…Continue Reading
Seems that way. Bodog.com, a gambling website, has suspended betting on Hell’s Kitchen after the odds for one of the contestanst went from 7-1 to 2-1. This contestant is 30-year-old Rock, an executive chef from Spotsylvania, Virginia.
While this suspension of betting isn’t a 100 percent gaurantee that Rock will be given the head chef’s position at a new Italian restaurant in the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa, remember that Bodog is the same site suspended betting for Survivor: Panamaâ€”Exile Island in 2006 when a flood of bets came in for eventual runner-up, Danielle DiLorenzo, when she was still only in the top seven. Bodog also suspended betting on Survivor: The Amazon in 2003 after being tipped off that some CBS employees were betting, correctly it turned out, on who that season’s top two would be.
But I doubt this will hurt the show any, as people watch Hell’s Kitchen for a lot of different reasons, and Monday’s premiere averaged 8.2 million viewers.Continue Reading
