Lincoln Heights, OH – Chewanna Henderson, 33, is facing two counts of felonious assault after reportedly neglecting to tell the man she was fucking she tested positive for HIV and for stabbing him in the head.
All this, police say, after the man gave her a place to stay and gifted her a puppy.
This ungrateful bitch….
According to Sgt. Jesse J. Green, Henderson admitted “she did not notify (the man) that she was (HIV-positive) because he bought her a puppy and gave her somewhere to stay.”
In return for his hospitality, dude was stabbed in the back of the head with a kitchen knife Friday, after he and Henderson argued about “friends that came to the residence.” Something tells me the “friends” causing the drama were somehow attached to Henderson.
As police were booking Henderson, she reportedly stole a set of keys from an on-duty officer (how the fuck…?), removed her handcuffs and attempted to leave the police station. Fortunately, she was caught before making it out the door.…Continue Reading
BARTOW, FL – A couple of cell phone store employees in Florida have gotten themselves into a bit of trouble after they stole a female customer’s personal photos off her phone and then shared them.
The unidentified woman came to the Cellular Sales of Knoxville store to purchase a new phone. Joshua Stuart, 24, told the woman that he would transfer all of her data from her old phone to the new one she just bought. While Joshua delivered on this promise of data transfer, he also kept some nude photos of the woman he found on her old phone. No idea what the photos were, but they were good enough to share with fellow employee, 26-year-old Gregory Lampert.
Their activities may have gone unnoticed had Joshua and Gregory not decided to show their find to another customer in the store. Unfortunately for the pair, this customer recognized the woman in the pics and immediately informed her that she was pretty popular over at the cell phone store and her private pics may have become wanking material for two of the store’s employees.…Continue Reading
Jeremy Penny was working in a Tulsa field with his father and brother when he spotted 35-year-old Kalvin Hulvey taking off with his 1997 Buick LeSabre. Penny and his father, who both do rodeo work, immediately jumped into a truck and chased after Hulvey, eventually catching up to him at an intersection.
Penny, who stands 6-foot-5-inches and weighs 240-pounds, reached in and yanked Hulvey’s ass out of his car before his father proceeded to hog-tie Hulvey and suspend him from a nearby fence.
“I rodeo, we both rodeo,” said Penny. “But here lately, I’ve been having bad luck keeping calves tied, so he did the tying up. That way we made sure he stayed tied.”
And that’s where Hulvey stayed until police arrived and arrested him. Hulvey, who has prior felony convictions of burglary and possession of a controlled drug, was charged with larceny of a motor vehicle and is in jail on a $10,000 bond.…Continue Reading
According to Ontario police, 52-year-old Richard Matthews went to Precision Jewellers in Ontario and attempted to swap a real diamond with a fake one. When store employees confronted him over swapping out a $20,000 , 1.7 carat diamond with a fake he had brought along, he proceeded to gulp down all the evidence.
Matthews was arrested on a suspicion of theft charge and placed in a cell with no toilet. Whenever he has to take a dump, he has to do so in a bucket. Afterwards, a gloved technician must sift through Matthews’ nuggets in hopes of finding the really expensive one.
X-rays revealed that Matthews is concealing two fake diamonds in his intestines. The real diamond cannot be seen because it’s translucent. Police have been patiently waiting for Matthews to pass the gem for over a week and expect it complete its journey any day now.…Continue Reading
OREM, Utah – I’m sure most of us have heard or used almost every excuse known to man regarding missing homework, but a teen in Utah had an excuse for his missing homework that was as stupid as it was valid — police were holding it as evidence.
Early Saturday morning, police responded to a residence and met a 75-year-old man and his wife who said they woke up to sounds of someone inside their home. When the elderly man went to investigate why a light was on in his office, he encountered a teenager rifling through his desk.
Caught red-handed and cornered, the teen punched the old man in the face before fleeing the scene on foot.
“He hit me in the eye, broke my glasses,” the victim said. “Then he hit me a second one right there in the eye too.”
As police looked around the scene, they found the burglar had entered the home through an unlocked window. They also found an abandoned backpack in the man’s backyard that contained an item that helped speed up their investigation substantially.…Continue Reading

Danny Lesh said that he purchased his Cannondale hybrid for $600 in 1998 and that it was stolen last week after he loaned it a friend.

He identified his bike by a distinctive sticker and custom pedals.

Joseph Pointer, 51, briefly lived with Angela Speakman this month. Speakman believed he stole the remains of her sister after he moved out of the residence. Speakman’s sister died in a car accident in 2008 and she shared her sister’s remains with their parents.
Speakman’s mother says that Pointer drove by her home one day last week shouting, “I’ve got your dead daughter’s ashes and I’m going to snort them.”

FREDERICKSBURG, Va – The woman convicted of faking cancer to raise thousands of dollars for her treatment has been ordered to pay a $100 fine.
Martha Ann Nicholas pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges of obtaining money by false pretenses after prosecutors say she raised $1700 dollars selling “Cancer Sucks” T-shirts to family, friends, and strangers to help treat the stage-4 ovarian cancer she even didn’t have.
Authorities began investigating Nicholas in 2011 after they received a report that she was collecting donations based on a medical condition she hadn’t been diagnosed with. Nicholas was an active fund raiser for American Cancer Society and help raised $12,000 for the group, which the they say they received. What got Nicholas in legal trouble was the $1,700 that she raised for herself.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – A dumbass in Florida is looking at a felony theft charge and possible jail time after a picture of him holding the nameplate he allegedly stole off a judge’s door found itself on Facebook.
Police say that on February 23, 21-year-old Steven Mulhall pried the $40 nameplate off of Broward Circuit Judge Michael Orlando’s door. A picture of Mulhall holding the nameplate was then posted to his girlfriend’s Facebook profile.
An anonymous tip directed investigators to the picture and Mulhall was arrested for petty theft. But here’s the kicker. Since he was already on probation for past petty theft convictions, this charge is a felony.
Mulhall, a friggin’ thief who has already been charged with 15 car burglaries, 10 counts of petty theft and two counts of grand theft, admits it was stupid of him to post the picture but says he didn’t steal the nameplate. Rather, he found it on the ground outside the courthouse.
“First off, I never even pulled it from the courtroom,” said Mulhall. “My girlfriend was getting off probation, and we were walking to the car, and we saw it.”
Thank God for Floridians being able to rise above their mental handicaps and figure out how to use Facebook, am I right?…Continue Reading

Police have charged 43-year-old Paula Barker with fraudulent use of personal identification information after they say she waited until her son had been deployed overseas to steal $4000 from his bank account.
When he returned home several months later and found his funds had depreciated without his participation, he contacted police and told them he suspected his mother was the culprit. Investigators asked Barker about the missing money and she said she wasn’t responsible and didn’t even know the account existed.
But police would end up arresting Barker after determining that she’d used her son’s account to buy an airplane ticket and to send herself some cash through Western Union. Probably to buy the remaining hydrogen peroxide needed to get her hair to that “Boo Radley” color she seems to be after.
She is currently behind bars on $5000 bond.…Continue Reading
