Irving, TX — Two Texas women are suing after a state trooper subjected them to a roadside body cavity search that was captured on video. On top of that, the case is being investigated by the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office’s public integrity division and will go before a grand jury in January.
Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece, Ashley Dobbs, 24, were driving down State Highway 161 one night last July when they were pulled over by state trooper David Farrell. The trooper told them he had seen someone in the car throwing out cigarette butts and then asked to search their vehicle for drugs because they were “acting weird.”
When his search failed to yield any illegal substances, he enlisted the help of female trooper Kellie Helleson to assist in a cavity search of both women. So on the side of the road, in front of a camera and passing motorists, Helleson probed both women’s anus and vagina while using the same latex glove.
In the video you can hear trooper Farrell tell the women he smells marijuana coming from the vehicle and Dobbs stating that, to the best of her knowledge, there was no marijuana in the vehicle.…Continue Reading
Milwaukee, WI – Someone was in the right place at the right time on Friday when they captured a brawl between a police officer and a clown outside Milwaukee City Hall.
Police say the clown is a known activist who can often be seen outside government buildings. But on Friday, police were getting calls that the clown was chasing cars with a squirt gun. Luckily, someone just happened to be there filming as a responding officer approached the clown.
“The officer reached for him, and the next thing you know, they’re on the ground, tussling and rolling around. The officer started punching him, and then another officer showed up, and it looked like they were about to arrest him. It was pretty funny,” the witness said. “The clown was resisting, so the cop needed to do what he needed to do to make sure he was safe.”
“What’s going through my head is a cop beating up a clown. How can I not capture this video and show it to all my friends?” the witness said.…Continue Reading
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA — A former Westminster police detective has killed himself just hours before he was to be sentenced after being found guilty of raping a 24-year-old woman he abducted from a mall.
Back in 2010, the victim was leaving her cocktail waitress job at Dave & Buster’s in the Ontario Mills Mall, when 33-year-old Anthony Nicholas Orban forced her at gunpoint to drive to a strip mall in Fontana. There he proceeded to beat and sexually assault the woman for more than an hour. Luckily, she was able to escape out of an unlocked door of her SUV and Orban fled the scene.
It didn’t take police long to identify Orban as a suspect as his dumbass left his registered service revolver in the victim’s vehicle. He was arrested, charged, and kicked off the force. He pleaded not guilty and insulted a jury’s intelligence by claiming he was insane at the time of the attack.
He said that a dose of the drug Zoloft had triggered hallucinations and suicidal and homicidal fantasies days before the rape and that since he does not recall committing the crime, he should not be held accountable for his actions.…Continue Reading
Forest Hills, NY – Gilberto Valle, a married 6-year veteran of the New York Police Department, was arrested in Queens yesterday on charges that he was conspiring to kidnap, rape, cook, and eat a number of female acquaintances.
Pretty much all the evidence against the 28-year-old Valle is in the form of e-mails and instant messages which discussed his plans to “kidnap, rape, torture, kill, cook and eat body parts of a number of women,” according to the complaint against the officer. Though Valle, who works at the 26th Precinct in Manhattan, never actually followed through on any of his plans, the evidence was enough to officially charge him with federal kidnapping conspiracy.
It’s pretty clear that Valle put some serious thought into his plots though. In one conversation with a co-conspirator, he mentioned that he would like cook someone “over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible,” according to the complaint, which describes two specific plans.
The first plan allegedly involved a $5,000 kidnap-for-hire in which Valle believed that his customer was interested in raping the woman in question.…Continue Reading
Louisville, Kentucky – A University of Louisville police officer was found in contempt of court after she refused to show up to court on two occasions, telling the judge she was too busy.
Kristen Byrd ticketed a doctor for a traffic violation that he decided to contest in court. He showed up but officer Byrd did not. Now the case morphed into a bench trial, and Jefferson District Judge Stephanie Pearce Burke subpoenaed Byrd. For a second time, everyone showed up to court on time but Byrd was looking like a no show.
While everyone was in the courtroom, the judge ordered prosecutors to call Byrd to find out where she was and why she was not in court. They did so multiple times but she would not answer her phone. So the judge called her personally. This time Byrd answered and told the judge, with an attitude, that she was too busy to come to court. When the judge informed her she had been ordered to appear via a subpoena, Byrd once again said she was too busy.…Continue Reading
A Rankin Pennsylvania cop is scheduled for a preliminary hearing today because he allegedly broke into his neighbor’s home to do laundry.
The neighbor called police after noting that his electric bill was unusually high even though he had not actually been living in the home for months. Upon returning to the house to investigate, the man found the dryer running.
Inside the dryer was a load of clothing that included the police uniform of Officer Jason Rocco, as well as his Marine Corps t-shirts.
Investigating officers believe that Rocco broke into the home using the back door, but when questioned, Rocco said that the door was already broken and that he “just had to do some laundry.”
At the close of interview Avalon police say that Rocco requested his clothing back from investigators.
Officer Rocco was charged with trespassing and criminal mischief. He was arraigned on May 19 and was released on his own recognizance.…Continue Reading
Mississippi — Police are warning drivers along Mississippi’s northern highways to be extra cautious about pulling over for a vehicle after two people were found shot to death by a someone police think could be posing as a cop.
The Tate County Sheriff’s Office released the following warning via their Facebook Page:
“We urge everyone to be cautious while driving, especially at night. If someone attempts to pull you over with flashing lights and you feel unsure of stopping, DON’T PULL OVER. Use your cell phone and dial 911 and if it’s a real officer then the dispatcher will confirm it for you and if it’s not a real officer they will send help to you. Our deputies have been told not to overreact if someone does not immediately pull over. Your safety is our primary concern.”
This warning comes after two people, in separate incidents, were found shot to death along Mississippi highways within days of each other. In both cases, it looks as if the victims had pulled over for someone.…Continue Reading
LA CROSSE, Wis. – A 22-year-old Viterbo University student is looking at some possible sexual assault charges after he smacked a female police officer’s ass and told her “good job.”
Andrew Kiel was at the Brothers Bar on Pearl Street early Sunday morning when he allegedly walked up to the female officer and slapped her ass while offering a critique of her job performance.
When he tried to the same thing to a male officer, that officer grabbed Kiel’s arm, handcuffed him and then booked him into the La Crosse County Jail on charges of fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct.
This reminds me of something that happened to me when I was a kid. We had a clubhouse in my backyard that hosted the fearsome neighborhood gang called the Black Widows, named after the gang in EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE.
We decided that while we were extremely cool and a force to be reckoned with, we definitely needed some chicks hanging around to make us even cooler. So we talked some of the neighborhood girls to come over and check out our digs.…Continue Reading
Poquoson, VA. – That happy fella to the left is Steven McGee and he’s a former police officer accused of repeatedly raping a girl under the age of 13.
Police arrested McGee on Thursday and placed him in the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail where I’m sure cops accused of raping little girls are welcomed by the inmates with open arms. McGee worked as a patrol officer for the last three years so I am guessing chances are high he may be responsible for some of his roommates’ current living conditions.
It’s not clear how the Department of Social Services found out about the alleged rapes, but they were the ones who first contacted police. The girl was taken to the Children’s Hospital of the Kings Daughters, where she was interviewed by a nurse and able to describe when and where the rapes had occurred.
The relationship between McGee and the girl have not been reported in an effort to protect the victim’s identity. I’m guessing that’s because they’re probably related.…Continue Reading
BONNEY LAKE, Wash. — On Sunday, 38-year-old Holly Crayhay went out of this world in the same way I envision Jaded will; in a hail of bullets at the end of a police chase.
Police had tried pulling Crayhay over after she was noticed driving erratically. She stopped for them once, only to pull away. Police eventually did a PIT maneuver, pinning her car against a guardrail.
That’s when Crayhay pulled out a firearm and began shooting at officers. No police were hit, but they returned fire. Crayhay was hit as was a pit bull that had jumped out of her car and charged towards them. The dog was killed at the scene, Crayhay would die later at the hospital.
“It’s unfortunate, but you know, you can’t shoot at the police without having them shoot back at you,” said Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer.
Reading through some of the comments left on a couple news articles, Crayhay had quite the criminal history, and going by her Facebook postings, some mental issues as well.…Continue Reading
Detective Hileman and Lt. Choate thought it was odd that Christopher Hildreth went to the back to make their coffee when they stopped into Dunkin’s Donuts in June as he’d never done that when he served them coffee on previous occasions.
Feeling paranoid, as I’m sure most cops do when being served food, they watched Hildreth with the help of a store-front video monitor that shows a view of the back room. Both officers said they watched as Hildreth fill their drinks, and then add snot to both cups.
They didn’t say a word to Hildreth when he returned with their drinks, but contacted the manager and reviewed the surveillance tapes with her. The tapes clearly showed Hildreth making a couple of Boogerlattes and he was immediately fired.
He was also charged with two misdemeanor counts of attempted assault.
I gotta commend those two police officers.…Continue Reading
Canton, OH — Judging by the almost 500,00 views of this following Youtube video, a lot of you have already heard about the incident in Canton, Ohio involving a cop going berserk on a man lawfully carrying a concealed weapon.
But for those of you unaware, a police cruiser’s dashcam was rolling as two police officers pull up behind a parked car containing a man in the backseat, a woman outside of the car and 52-year-old William Bartlett (pictured), who had a license to carry a concealed weapon.
Things start off badly with the cop in charge immediately identifying himself as one of those cops who loathes the people he swore to protect. But before I go any further, know that I do not hate cops. Not all of them, anyway. Most can tell you that I am a cop sympathizer. I take a lot of flack from Athena because I occasionally make excuses for cops involved in chases or scuffles that end with someone dead or Tased or homeowners who have their pets killed after a SWAT team bursts into the wrong home.…Continue Reading
New Castle, Pa. — Chico, one of the New Castle Police Department drug and patrol dogs, died Saturday after his fellow officer and handler reportedly left him for over two hours in the back of a locked police cruiser. The dog was found unresponsive in the car parked outside the station.
Chico, a 6-year old Dutch shepherd, had been with the police department since late 2009. The Pittsburgh office of the National Weather Service reported that temperatures in New Castle on Saturday reached a high of 90 degrees. A local Veterinarian, Charlene Arendas, said, “I would never leave a dog in a car even with the windows cracked, once the temperatures reach 80 degrees.”
“When it’s close to 80 degrees, and you leave your dog in a car, you are putting it at risk.” added Arendas. Babies are okay, though. That was sarcasm, people… Sarcasm.
A police press release did not say whether the car was left running or if the air conditioner was on. The car was reported to be equipped with a fan and a system to open a rear window in hot weather.…Continue Reading
Brooklyn, NY – 30 year-old Kevin Louther, an NYPD cop and youth officer, was arrested and charged in connection to an inappropriate relationship he apparently had with a 15 year-old girl.
The alleged relationship between the two was discovered and reported by the girl’s mother, who discovered explicit text messages and pictures sent to the girl. Police are saying that they do not believe the pair had sex, but that there was some smooching to accompany the texts and e-mails.
The two met through the departments ‘Law Enforcement Explorer’ program which, according to the program’s website, “reaches out to New York City’s young adults in every community to help build up relations between the community and New York City Police Department.” I’m pretty sure this sort of thing isn’t quite what they had in mind. Louther has been suspended without pay and is due in court again this week, facing charges of sex abuse, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Oh… and his initial bail was set at $750.…Continue Reading
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Some breaking news out of Colorado where a police officer arrested on child pornograpy charges earlier this month has been re-arrested and charged with sexually assaulting students at the school where he worked as the resource officer.
Police say Joshua Carrier, 30, was arrested last week after an investigation in March that started when the department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit received information that Carrier may have purchased child pornography online. On Thursday, Carrier was rearrested after police gathered more evidence suggesting that Carrier had unlawful sexual contact with multiple minor children.
During a news conference it was revealed that several male students on the Horace Mann Middle School wrestling team accused Carrier, the school resource officer and wrestling coach, of inappropriately touching their private areas at school when he told them he was checking for ringworm.
This pleases the mother of one of the alleged victims. “It feels great to know that my son and all these other children will have their day in court and justice and they will be able to see this man put behind bars,” she said, adding that it was safe for other possible victims to come forward.…Continue Reading
EVESHAM, N.J. – A former cook for Good Foods to Go has received 15 days in jail and two years probation for placing pubic and chest hairs inside a police officer’s sandwich last February.
Police say Ryan Burke, 27, was working as a cook at the restaurant when he saw an Evesham Police Department officer, who had once stopped him for a traffic violation, come in and order a turkey, egg and cheese bagel sandwich. Pissed off over their last meeting, Burke plucked out a few pubes along with some chest hair, and placed them inside the sandwich.
Unfortunately, the officer had already consumed part of the sandwich before noticing the short hairs sticking out of it. Police were called in and Burke confessed to the crime, stating he did it because he was mad at the officer. The uneaten portion of sandwich was confiscated and sent off to the state lab for analysis where DNA from the hairs would match a swab taken from Burke. Faced with this evidence, Burke pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.…Continue Reading
ENON, OHIO — After receiving reports of shots fired at a trailer park, Sergeant Dustin White and his partner, Suzanne Hopper, went to investigate. While White was talking with the family who said their trailer had been shot at, Hopper was using her camera to take pictures of a footprint outside a neighboring trailer. That’s when the door of that trailer opened and 57-year-old Michael Ferryman emerged brandishing a shotgun. Hopper had just enough time to scream before Ferryman leveled the shotgun at her face and pulled the trigger, killing the mother of two instantly. White tried to get to his fallen partner but was not able. “He was itching to get her,” Enron Beach resident Angelina Inman told The Associated Press. “He kept radioing in, can he please get her, and he was told no because it wasn’t secure. You could see that male sheriff crying — he wanted to get her, he wanted to get her bad.” When responding police arrived at the scene, Ferryman opened fire on them and a shootout ensued that left one officer wounded and Ferryman dead.…Continue Reading
Phoeniz, AZ -- An off-duty police officer is facing domestic abuse charges after allegedly choking his live-in girlfriend. According to the report, 29-year-old Sutton Wohlman and his girlfriend had just arrived home from a fundraiser where Wohlman had gotten shitfaced after consuming anywhere from 11 to 14 drinks. When his girlfriend tried to pull him out of the car, Wohlman threw her to the ground and began choking her. A witness was in her car and observed Wohlman choking the victim inside the garage. “She was screaming for her life, what her screams sounded like. And he was yelling at her, asking for forgiveness of some sort,” the witness stated. Afraid to get out of the car, the witness called 911 just before Wohlman’s girlfriend broke free. ”As soon as she turned her head and saw me, she ran towards my car, frantically screaming for help,” said the witness. When police arrived they found Wohlman sitting on the floor of the garage with a pistol holstered on his ankle. When the responding officer grabbed his arm, Wohlman punched him in the face.…Continue Reading
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The daughter of the Concord police chief has not been heard from since leaving the Thomas Street Tavern early Wednesday morning where she had been with friends. The bar wasn’t that crowded that night and her friends say that 23-year-old Valerie Hamilton had been talking with a man at the bar they did not know and may have left with him. When she did not show up for work the next morning people immediately became concerned as this was completely out of character. Police were notified when she failed to contact her friends or family and her car was located where she had parked it across the street from the bar with her purse inside. Police used K-9 units to search the area as well as her apartment, where no evidence of foul play were discovered. But the circumstances have people thinking the worst. “We developed several leads that has caused us to have a little bit greater concern for her safety and her wellbeing,” said CMPD Deputy Chief Harold Medlock. Police would really like to talk with the man seen with her last.…Continue Reading
HOUSTON — After receiving a complaint that officer Mathais Dornellien was stealing money from the citizens he pulled over, HPD’s Internal Affairs Department set up a sting operation. After Dornellien, 24, pulled over a motorist and asked him to step outside of the car, he allegedly took $273 from the suspect’s pockets. What Dornellien did not know was that the motorist he pulled over was an undercover cop and the money he had stolen was marked. He found all this out after another police officer pulled him over shortly after the theft. He was charged with theft by a public servant. If convicted, Dornellien could face 2 to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. The guy hadn’t even been doing this long, having been sworn in as an officer in November of 2009. He had been assigned to the south central patrol division, but has since been relieved from his duties with pay until the investigation completes.…Continue Reading
