Benjamin SiegelDeerfield Beach, FL – The owner of a South Florida reptile store featured here two years ago after a man choked to death during a cockroach eating contest, has been arrested after he allegedly hit employees with a lizard.

Police say 40-year-old Benjamin Siegel, owner of Siegel Reptiles, is facing battery and animal cruelty charges after video surveillance captured Siegel throwing a bearded dragon lizard in the air and swinging it multiple times. He also hit employees with the bearded dragon multiple times and threw Gatorade on them.

According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office arrest report:

“The defendant did unnecessarily torment the animal, handling the animal in a cruel and/or inhumane manner and intentionally committed an act to the animal which results in excessive and repeated infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering to the animal.”

Siegel was already on bond for previous battery charges at the time of this incident, so when he faced a judge his previous bond was revoked. He was still behind bars without bond on Monday.…

Someone did, but the couple had already been dead for a few days.…

toddler gunHAYDEN, ID – Veronica Rutledge was inside a Walmart when she was accidentally shot and killed by her 2-year-old boy after he reached into her purse and her concealed gun fired.

The shooting occurred on Tuesday at around 10:20 a.m. as Rutledge, 29, was shopping with her son and three other children, said Kootenai County sheriff’s spokesman Stu Miller.

The boy was in a shopping cart when he reached into his mother’s purse and pulled out a small-caliber handgun. The gun fired once and Rutledge, who had a concealed weapons permit, was fatally struck.

“It appears to be a pretty tragic accident,” Miller said.

Rutledge’s husband showed up to the store shortly after the shooting. All of the children were taken to a relative’s house.

Rutledge’s father-in-law, Terry Rutledge, told The Associated Press that Rutledge “was a beautiful, young, loving mother” and was “not the least bit irresponsible.” I beg to differ.

Look, I’m all for people being able to carry a concealed firearm. Hell, I’m a concealed weapons permit holder myself.…

Leelah AlcornKINGS MILL, OH – Leelah Alcorn, a 17-year-old transgender, committed suicide by walking in front of a tractor trailer and left a letter in which she explains her decision to kill herself while also blaming her Christian parents.

After Alcorn stepped in front of the truck on Sunday, her suicide note was posted to her Tumblr account. It begins with: “If you are reading this, it means that I have committed suicide and obviously failed to delete this post from my queue.”

The note goes on to explain how Alcorn identified as a girl as a child and didn’t realize what transgendered meant until she was 14. While getting support from friends, her parents weren’t too happy about it and had her seeing Christian therapists.

After her parents pulled her out of public school and took away her ability to get online, she became more depressed. After being allowed back online, she felt the arms that greeted her back were not that open. She states  she is “never going to be happy” living the rest of her life as a lonely man and that each day is worse than the next.
