It Happened In Florida

Jontae Dellano, 14, got in a fight at school and ended up getting whipped.  So he got his dad to help him find a little revenge by going to a bus stop to confront his nemesis, with a tube sock with padlocks in it.

Jamal Shields, 30, drove Jontae to a bus stop to Palm River, Florida bus stop where he faced his 13 year old, now victim, and began to hit him with the “sock-n-lock”.  Others at the scene called 911 and when the victim ran across the street to get away, Shields instructed his son to follow and go after him.  When the fight was over the father and son returned home and the victim had to go to the hospital requiring staples to close a gash in his head.

The pair were arrested at their home and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Dad also was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a child.

Jontae has quite the mentor in Shields.  His father has been arrested over 27 times and been in prison three times.

When You Burgle The Home of a Kickboxer

19 year old Johnathan Wise (right) was arrested for burglary late last month, but it isn’t the pending criminal charges he probably most regrets.  That would be the beating he took at the hands of his “victim”.

Norm Houston (left) was home when he heard a noise coming from his garage and upon going outside to investigate he found Wise standing there.  Wise started the meeting by apologizing for any damage, but then attacked Houston. “The burglar started out by apologizing to him for getting into the garage and said he had fixed the damage only to follow that up by punching him in the face,”OKC Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.

Unfortunately for Wise, his first punch would be his last.  Houston is a personal trainer that specializes in boxing and kickboxing.  After smashing Wise’s face, he held him down until police arrived.  Before going to jail he required medical treatment at the hospital.

Don’t Fling Poo At the Police Station

Greg Greaves was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly ambushed another man in a bar bathroom during an annual Chicago pub crawl.

The unidentified man claims that he was stopping by one of the many bars participating in the Twelve Bars of Christmas pub crawl to use the bathroom.  When he walked in Greaves jumped from a stall with a broken beer bottle and began to stab the victim in the neck.  A bartender then entered the bathroom and found the scene with the victim with cuts on his neck, chin and hands. He was taken to a hospital and was in stable condition.

Greaves on the other hand was arrested and taken to the police station where he began to put up a drunken fit.  While in the processing room he began to yell at police and oddly refused to wear pants.  He then, according to police, began to defecate into his hands and then threw the fecal matter on the floor.

He was charged with one felony count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, was released on bond and is due back in court on Dec 17th.

Naked, High on Meth and Greasy

41 year old Scott McFarland lead Austin police on a chase through north parts of the city in his jeep, while naked.

Police responded to calls of a man sitting in a Jeep, naked, outside a hotel and when they arrived he sped off starting a high speed chase.  Reaching speeds of 80mph it was only when police used stop sticks did his vehicle come to a stop by rolling down a ditch.  Police reported that apprehending McFarland was tough because he was “slippery from the grease he was covered in”.

Turns out that McFarland wasn’t only naked, and speeding… He was also high on meth.  He’s in jail on charges of driving while intoxicated, evading arrest and possession.

The Ol’ Pot Brownie Trick

Thomas Ricardo Cunningham, 21, and Mary Elizabeth Essa, 19, two students at Colorado University though baking pot into a batch of brownies for their history class are finding out that that old prank isn’t so funny after all.

Eight of the 12 students that were in the class fell ill in some form after eating the brownies, including three who needed to be hospitalized.  The class professor was one of those that was taken to a hospital, one female student had to go after telling her parents she felt like she was “going to pass out” and another girl was in the hospital after having panic attacks.

The two students face charges include second- degree assault and inducing consumption of controlled substances by fraudulent means after bringing the brownies for “bring food to class day”.  And no, just because pot was recently legalized in Colorado, cooking it into food and feeding to unsuspecting victims is still illegal.

Nose Ring Found in Burrito

Frances Rosario and her daughter were in a Georgia McDonald’s about to enjoy a breakfast burrito when mom spied something odd about her daughter’s food.

Inside her four year old’s burrito was a shiny object and when she removed it, it was a nose ring.  “I turned it and I see this piece of jewelry sticking out,” Rosario told CBS Atlanta. “I’m like, what the heck is this?”  And she did find it before her daughter put it in her mouth.

Several different media outlets have attempted to get a reaction from McDonald’s, but have not received any reaction to the news.  Gawker has reported that they learned that McDonald’s has a dress code that prevents employees from wearing facial jewelry of any kind, so how it got into the burrito isn’t clear.

It Happened in Florida (Election Day Edition)

A woman in Sarasota, FL who’s campaign yard signs were stolen, couldn’t figure out who would do such a thing.  Until she receive a confessional post card (right, click for larger versions) from a neighbor admitting he’d stolen her signs for Democrat candidates .

Why?  Cause according to the card, featuring contrasting images of Reagan and Obama:

My apologies for your Democrat yard signs, but I can explain. I live around the corner from you and when I see signs that support Democrats I fear for the safety of our neighborhood. When thieves drive through Sapphire Shores scoping out possible targets and see pro-Democrat yard signs they automatically assume that the subdivision is filled with retards and half-wits. The gangsters think it’s easy pickings because they already know that if a person votes Democrat they probably don’t have the sense to come in out of the rain, not to mention locking their doors or securing their valuables. It is common knowledge amongst burglars that Democrats are anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment so when they see campaign signs that promote Democrats they know the homeowners are not armed and therefore unable to protect themselves from attack.

It is signed “Bat Masterson” which is a character from an old NBC TV show from the 50’s.

Watch This Crazy Ass Plane Crash

This happened over the weekend at a small Dallas area airport.  The video speaks for itself, but yes, there is a road that crosses the runway at it’s entry point.  Apparently the only warning to drivers about the runway is the word “STOP” painted (not via a sign on a pole or flashing lights) on the road itself.

No one was badly injured, and the guy flying the plane was a student who only had hours left before getting his license.  He was so freaked out he quit the lessons and has decided to never fly a plane himself again.

Don’t Go Makin’ Your Rapist Feel Bad

Ryan Romo is an 18 year old star on the Highland Park High School baseball team (led in RBI’s), is the son of a CEO for a popular Dallas area market & bakery, and now an accused rapist and facing charges of sexual assault of a classmate.

Highland Park, TX is the toniest of towns, owning one of the nation’s highest per capita incomes and a high school well known for it’s “rich kids”.  Reed (right) was at a concert Saturday night and ran into a classmate who he offered to drive home.  Somewhere along the way home they stopped to make out in the back of his Chevy Tahoe.  Kissing and making out turned to Romo taking off his pants and touching the girl.  She first told him she wasn’t into having sex, then to stop numerous times but Romo allegedly raped her anyway.

He dropped her off at home where the girl’s mom immediately noticed there was something wrong and got the full story.  She took her daughter to the hospital where she underwent a rape kit examination.  The affidavit reports the test show there was intercourse and a subsequent examination shows signs that,  “the trauma he observed appears to have been forceful.”

At this point this is just another unfortunate story of girl/boy, “he said, she said” – until mom and daughter talked to police who then set up two secretly recorded converstaions between her and Romo.  The first was a call where Romo offered to buy her the morning after pill, “if she was really worried about it”, and told her he’d, “had fun we should definitely hang out again”.  The second conversation was recorded when the pair were sitting in the girl’s car.  This time she pressed him on the manner the incident happened, telling him that “I just wish it didn’t happen like that.  Like, I wish, cause, I said stop…I said no…I wish you’d stopped you know or not done it,”

Romo, certainly innocent until proven guilty and maybe the victim of a false charge, didn’t help his case when his response was simply,  “OK, you’re making me feel bad, wow.”

Romo was arrested and charged with sexual assault of a child, a $100,000 bond and released on Tuesday.

*update* – an interesting side story that is developing from two local alternative news sites have covered the story, but have taken very different POV’s.  At the bottom of each of the associated stories are the comments section – a fascinating look into how people react to stories like this based on obvious biases, relationships, politics or simply shock value.   Dallas Culture Map and Dallas Observer   There is now even a “Free Ryan Romo” Facebook page via his friends who claim his innocence.
