$800,000 In Easy Pickings From Easy Picker Golf Products

<--- None of the money went for hair care.

An Alva woman was arrested for stealing $818,339.37 between February 2010 and May 2011 while employed as a bookkeeper for Easy Picker Golf Products, Inc. in Lehigh Acres.
Bonnie Denning (DOB: 10/20/1972) of 18120 River Chase Court, Alva, was arrested Tuesday, June 26, 2012 and has been charged with first degree grand theft and scheming to defraud.
The theft was brought to the attention of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office on May 20, 2011 when one of the business owners filed a report. Investigators with the Economic Crimes Unit immediately began to conduct an investigation into the allegations and uncovered a myriad of expenditures made by Denning for her personal use.
Prior to involvement by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office investigators, the business owners suspected something was amiss when they began to experience cash flow problems. They turned their business records over to a C.P.A. for analysis and he identified unusual wire transfers and a large number of debit card transactions from the business. Multiple checks had been written and a debit card had been obtained for the business by Denning. She had even written a check for $5,295.76 for shutters for her home. Further investigation revealed 54 unauthorized wire transfers totaling $358,885.50 including $4,799.58 for granite installation for her home and $29,160.00 for a drug rehabilitation program for a relative. She also made 60 unauthorized debit card purchases totaling $411,387.00.

Walmart Madness #24! Couple Leave Child Porn At Store

  A North Fort Myers couple have been arrested after child pornography was allegedly found on a cell phone they accidentally left in a Walmart shopping cart.
Alan Robert Johnson, a 33-year-old registered sex offender, was arrested with Jennifer A. Sparks, 37, on Wednesday.

Walmart Madness #23! Shoplifter BB Guns Manager

The victim said he and another manager stopped Catherine Sheridan after seeing her pick up three pairs of pants, a pair of sneakers and a bottle of water before heading towards the store exit. The victim and the other manager stopped Sheridan and asked for her receipt. Sheridan was unable to produce one and said she had asked the cashier to throw it away. When the victim asked which cashier had the receipt, Sheridan reportedly said she did not know. The victim began questioning Sheridan about the items she had picked up and asked her to step back inside the store. When Sheridan attempted to walk out the door, the victim stepped in front of her. At that point, Sheridan allegedly unzipped the fanny pack she was wearing, pulled out what appeared to be a black gun and started shooting.
The victim was struck in the abdomen. According to the police report, the victim had a small, red, round mark on his stomach consistent with being shot with a BB gun or pellet gun.
Sheridan fled from the store. Police established a perimeter around the store and K-9 units responded in an unsuccessful attempt to locate Sheridan.
Approximately an hour later, police received a call from a Briarglen Circle residence concerning a suspicious act. Briarglen Circle is in a subdivision that backs up to the Walmart property.
The caller advised a woman had shown up on her doorstep claiming to have been kidnapped out of Bogan Park. The woman was wet and had scratches on her arms. The caller said she became suspicious of the woman’s story when she realized the woman had a bag of clothes with her despite having previously said she was taking her dog for a walk in the park when the kidnapping occurred. The caller's description of the woman matched that of the pellet gun shooter.
When police arrived, Sheridan was taken into custody and both the victim and witness subsequently identified her as the assailant.


Hand Sanitizer Recalled For Bacterial Contamination

A hand sanitizer meant to protect people from germs is being recalled because of bacterial contamination, Health Canada said Thursday.
Kimberly-Clark is recalling its Kleenex-brand Luxury Foam Hand Sanitizer after company testing detected bacteria that may pose serious health risks to people with weakened immune systems, especially those with the lung disorder cystic fibrosis.
The bacteria identified in the tested samples are from the Burkholderia cepacia group. These bacteria pose little risk to healthy people, but for those with immune systems weakened by other illnesses, the microbes can cause serious problems, including pneumonia and blood infection.
The affected hand sanitizer comes in one-litre and 1.2-litre containers, and is used in large-volume dispensers, such as those found in public areas and workspaces.
The recall affects about 430 containers, which were distributed to retail stores and wholesalers across Canada.
Health Canada said companies or individuals who have purchased the affected product should remove it from use.
Consumers with compromised immune systems should not use the affected Kleenex sanitizer or any sanitizing product that can't be identified from its dispenser.
Health Canada said consumers should speak to their health-care practitioner about any questions or concerns regarding the product.

Man Returns Used Enemas To CVS Store

On June 12, police were dispatched to a CVS located on San Jose Boulevard in reference to a dispute between a clerk and a customer who returned ready to use enema laxatives, and had done so several times in the recent past.
An investigation revealed the individual was frequenting the CVS since March and began returning the product in April. He would purchase a pack of enemas and return them at a later time. According to CVS personnel, the items appeared to be unused and therefore the store would put the box of enemas back on the shelf for resale.

Here is the statement from CVS Pharmacy:

 Because the health and safety of our customers is our top priority, we alerted the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) that as many as twelve enema packages sold at our San Jose Blvd. store in Jacksonville between April 10 and June 12 were possibly used by a customer who then returned them with re-sealed packaging to make the products appear unopened. Based on our own investigation and examination of our transaction records, we do not believe any other CVS stores or any other products are affected.

We are fully cooperating with the authorities in their investigation of this matter and will work with them to assure that the individual responsible is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Also, out of an abundance of caution, we are proactively contacting all twenty-one customers we've identified who purchased any of the potentially impacted enema products at the store within this period of time and have succeeded in reaching more than half of them. We have also placed signage in the store to direct customers who may have purchased any of the affected products to contact us immediately.

Anyone who purchased an enema product at our San Jose Blvd. store in Jacksonville between April 10 and June 12 should contact us toll-free at 1-866-559-8861 for more information.

Vibrator Mistaken For Burglar

     A concerned resident called Bochum police at 11 pm on Sunday, worried that someone was trying to get into the house with a drill. The noise was so loud, Die Welt newspaper reported on Monday, that the tiles in his flat were vibrating.

He joined the officers in scouring the house to track down the mysterious noise, which grew ever louder the further down the building they were.

Eventually they ended up in the building's communal cellar, expecting to find a determined burglar armed with an electric drill.

But on entering there was nothing to be seen apart from a lone vibrator that had fallen off a shelf, turned itself on and rolled up against pipes.

The police officers couldn't help but crack a smile, Die Welt said.

This was not the first case of a rogue vibrator causing trouble in the North Rhine-Westphalian city – in March 2010 a woman rang the police, terrified by a noise in her bedroom.

It turned out that is was not an intruder, but an electric sex toy that she kept in a drawer.

Man Fleeing Police Gets Compacted

About 11 a.m. Wednesday Reno Municipal Court marshals spotted Rodney Wright, who they thought may be wanted for misdemeanor arrest warrants, police said. He fled on his bicycle. Wright then ran from the officers after crashing his bike near the Truckee River Lodge on First and Ralston streets. Marshals lost sight of him and called off the search. But about 11:24 a.m., an employee of the lodge found Wright in the trash compactor and told police.
Police believe he entered the trash chute from one of the floors of the lodge and slid down into the compactor, which activated automatically when he entered. Wright was severely injured and after removing him from the compactor officers immediately began life-saving efforts, police said. An ambulance took him to a hospital where he was declared dead. An autopsy Wednesday showed Wright had injuries consistent with being crushed.
Wright was not the suspect with misdemeanor warrants but it turns out he did have felony warrants, Sgt. Alan Salter said.


Don't Test Your Lighter At The Gas Pump!

 If you were looking for a sign that all those warnings at the gas pump mean something, well, here's your sign.

The dunce cap of the day goes to a driver in Australia, who flicked his lighter as he filled his car with gas last week. Turns out the lighter worked.

Footage captured by a security camera shows flames shoot up and lick the man before spilling onto the concrete below him -- just feet from the pump.

He flees, leaving everyone else at the station in danger.

Just seconds later, a quick-thinking doctor jumps to the man's aid and douses the flames with a bucket of water.

Man Finds Out He Is Sterile, But Wife Had Kids

A 42-year old Egyptian man identified as Mohammed A is accused of killing his best friend after he discovered that he is not the father of his two children, but the friend is the father.
According to Al Tahrir newspaper in Egypt, the close friend was involved in an illicit relationship with the man’s wife and was only discovered when the husband went through a medical test due to inflammation of the prostate gland.
The Egyptian was informed that he is sterile and not able to have children.
The doctor then asked him if he was married and the husband confirmed to him that he is married and has two children, one 8 and another 6.
The doctor assured him that this was impossible because he has always been sterile due to his congenital disability.
The husband found his wife waiting for him at home and shared the outcome of the medical reports.
The wife then admitted to her relationship with his best friend.
The distraught husband took a knife and went to the house of the friend, identified as MT, and stabbed him several times.

Burglar's Head Stuck Under Garage Door 9 Hours

<--- Beware the guard door!

Hang tight!” John Rodriguez told a man who apparently tried to break into his store overnight. “The police are on their way!”
Rodriguez could afford to be flippant, because the man’s head was stuck between a metal door and a concrete loading dock floor, held there by several hundred pounds of pressure.
When Rodriguez, the assistant store manager, came to work at the Rent-A-Center store on Crescent Street and went out back to open the loading-bay doors, about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday, he found a man with his head stuck under the heavy metal door in the rear of the store.
“I happened to walk in and he was there,” Rodriguez said. “I saw that little head sticking out.”
Rodriguez took out his cell phone and began filming, asking why the man, Manuel Fernandes, 53, was trying to break into his store.
On the video, the Fernandes claims he was just “trying to fix the door,” then claims he confused Rent-A-Center with another address, then finally pleads with Rodriguez to let him go, saying that he hasn’t taken anything. The man said he had been under the door since midnight.
“I wanted to talk to him, to ask him questions to make sure he was coherent,” Rodriguez said, noting he didn’t know if the man was seriously injured.

Drunk Woman Wrecks Into Police Car

<--- "It's about time this happened," she said.

No one was seriously injured when a Sebastian woman crashed into a parked police car Friday, Indian River County Sheriff's Office officials said.
Lisa Tafuri, 49, of the 11300 block of South Indian River Drive was charged with driving under the influence with property damage after the 12:30 a.m. crash on U.S. 1 at Jefferson Street. She posted $1,000 bail.
"Honestly, it's about time this happened," she told the deputy.
An officer was investigating a separate crash at U.S. 1 and Main Street and parked his patrol car in the southbound lanes with lights flashing. The officer told deputies he had to run out of the path of Tafuri's car before she struck his patrol car, her affidavit states.
Tafuri refused to take either a blood-alcohol test or roadside sobriety exercises, the Sheriff's Office said. The deputy based his DUI charge on her lack of balance and her slurred words, the report states.


Chick Burglar Cooks Breakfast Nude

Police say a Newcomb Place homeowner got a surprise Thursday morning when she returned to her apartment to find a naked woman cooking breakfast in the kitchen.
Cops later identified the uninhibited intruder as 22-year-old Katherine Lee Ferguson of 12 Old Beach Road, Manomet, a village of Plymouth.
Police allege Ferguson and a male friend, identified as 24-year-old Kyle Timmons of Taunton, knew the homeowner was away for the night when they forced open two rear doors to let themselves in.
TPD Patrolman Jeffrey Arruda reports that after getting the call at 10:30 a.m. to respond to a breaking and entering at 2 Newcomb Place, he recognized it as a building that recently had been burglarized.
He also observed a young man running from the building with an older man wielding a hammer in hot pursuit.

Police also note that when detective Michael Bonenfant arrived on scene the by-then clothed Ferguson was wearing a dress and was in possession of a ring and watch, all of which belonged to the homeowner.

Jerry Sandusky Gets Serenaded

Following guilty verdicts on 45 of 48 counts, Jerry Sandusky was shipped off to Centre County Correctional Facility, the same facility he was initially held in December. According to a fellow inmate at the time, known only as Josh, Sandusky was on the receiving end of some a cappella ridiculing.
Other prisoners were barred from communicating directly with Sandusky, but they could see him. And when the lights went out, inmates serenaded the disgraced coach with a famous line from Pink Floyd's "The Wall."
"At night, we were singing ‘Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone,' " Josh said, adding that everyone knew who Sandusky was because inmates had access to television and newspapers.

Man Shoots Himself In Penis

A Southfield man is recovering after accidentally shooting himself in the penis as he adjusted his gun, according to police.
The 45-year-old heating and air-conditioning company employee was on a job in Birmingham on Tuesday when the incident took place, Birmingham Police Deputy Chief Mark Clemence said today. He was getting ready to work and was moving the .40-caliber Glock pistol in his pants when it discharged at 11:15 a.m.
"Through and through, if you can believe it," Clemence said. "The situation could have been a lot worse. You think about it -- your femoral artery runs down there. He could have shot it off. It could have been a lot worse. It’s a big bullet; you’re not talking a small bullet."
A coworker on the job on the 300 block of Wimbleton saw the accident and drove the man to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. Clemence said today he did not know if the man has been released.
Although he had a permit to carry the gun, he may face charges of reckless discharge of a firearm, Clemence said. The city's prosecutor is expected to review the case, he added.


Wife Attacks Husband For Having Copies Of The Onion

<--Now I want to start reading it again.  :)

The Shepherd Express and The Onion are iconic Wisconsin publications well known for their alternative views and humor.
However, when one man's wife found issues of those two papers in his trunk, it incited an incident that could very well be mistaken for a headline in The Onion.
A 56-year-old Menomonee Falls woman is facing charges after she allegedly attacked her husband for having copies of the Shepherd Express and The Onion in the trunk of his car.
Lynne M. Rasbornik was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Monday with one count of disorderly conduct domestic abuse. If convicted, she faces up to 90 days in jail and $1,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On May 19, the victim’s car was parked in their driveway in the N5100 block of Dolphin Drive and Rasbornik was going through the trunk when she found copies of the newspapers. She came into the house and confronted her husband about the papers then attacking him.

The man said his wife considers the publications “pornography” and the issue has been around in their marriage before.
The victim was able to get Rasbornik to the ground, then he wanted to leave, so he let her go and went to get his son’s guitar that he was going to borrow. Rasbornik then grabbed a vase and tried to throw it at her husband, but he was able to grab her arms and stop her.
Rasbornik began to flail her arms and scream before running out of the house to the victim’s car and take his cell phone, a notebook with his driver’s license and credit card inside, a Starbucks gift card and his handicapped placard.
While talking with a police officer, Rasbornik said her husband had attacked her, but she kept scratching and poking herself to make injuries more apparent. The officer told her to stop, but once taken in for booking she continued to scratch and twist her arms to make it appear that she was injured.


Teacher Stuffs Student Into File Cabinet - And More!

On Jan. 27, Flor Nelson got a phone call from her daughter's school principal. There had been an incident, she was told. Her 9-year-old daughter, who has autism and is non-verbal, had been put in a filing cabinet by her special education teacher.
"I said 'OK,' " Nelson told AOL Jobs. "I guess I didn't understand that literally she was putting her in a filing cabinet drawer and closing it."
The principal of Juan Seguin Elementary in Richmond, Texas couldn't tell her anything else, she said. The teacher had been suspended and was under investigation -- an investigation that revealed that the filing cabinet incident was one of many alleged filing cabinet incidents, and a whole lot more, reports the Houston Chronicle.
After the teacher, 47-year-old Julie Gosch, purportedly pulled out a clump of hair from one of her student's heads, two of her teaching aides decided to email school administrators, describing months of abuse.
Gosch had allegedly called the students "losers," "stupid," "retarded" and "a bitch." She would hit and kick them, and let them eat food from the bathroom floor. She would lift their pants and underwear, exposing the students in front of the class, to see if they had "gone to the bathroom," and steal the students' snacks. She instructed the aides in how to hit the children, and would hallucinate in front of the class under the influence of prescription medication, according to a lawsuit filed by Nelson and another mother, Juana Sapon (pictured above). The teaching aides say it was Sapon's 9-year-old autistic daughter who had her hair torn out by Gosch.

Walmart Madness #19! Woman Stuck To Toilet

It's an unusual situation to say the least - a woman in a less than ideal predicament, literally stuck in a bathroom at a Walmart in Monticello.
In a small town like Monticello rumors spread pretty quickly. So when this incident happened last week at Walmart everybody was talking about it in no time. A woman apparently got herself stuck to a toilet for at least an hour. Officials say she went in to use the bathroom, and the seat was covered in super glue.
EMS had to pull the woman off the seat, and she was taken to the hospital to be checked out. Now officials say this may have been done on purpose.
Police say they are investigating this matter but they don't want to accuse anyone at this point. Walmart has no comment.


Walmart Madness #18! Shoplifting To Die For

<--  Not a good idea Charlie Brown.

Police have released the name of the man shot and killed by police Tuesday outside a local Walmart.
Charles David Brown Jr. of Lincoln Park is the deceased.
Brown's fiancee, whose name has not been released, remains behind bars pending possible retail fraud charges, said Lt. Michael Graham.
Graham, who called the shooting justified, said there is a video they plan to get from Walmart that would show the chain of events surrounding the shooting. "The preliminary investigation indicates that the officers did follow policy and procedure to defend themselves. The officers acted within reason of a possible assault by a motor vehicle," said Graham, referring to allegations that Brown tried run over the officers.
Brown, a suspected shoplifter, was shot and killed by police Tuesday in the parking lot of a Walmart store.
According to a release from the Woodhaven Police Department, officers were called to the store in the 23800 block of Allen Road at about 7:45 p.m. after receiving a call about a man and woman leaving the store with stolen items.
When police arrived, they were confronted by a man in the parking lot who was wielding a screwdriver. The suspect, Brown, was ordered to drop the screwdriver, but instead jumped into a vehicle that later was shown to be stolen, police said.
Police say Brown "put the vehicle into reverse and attempted to run over an officer at which time he struck a patrol car," according to the release. "The suspect then put the vehicle in drive and attempted to run over another officer. At this time officers fired their weapons to end the assault."

Walmart Madness #17! Pretty Money Stolen

<-- No, not the Pretty Money group.

Walmart loss prevention officers believe the two women sought in connection with a June 9 theft at the Hamilton Mill Walmart are part of a group believed responsible for a series of similar crimes which have taken place along the Eastern seaboard from Virginia to Florida.
Gwinnett County Police were called to the Sardis Church Road store after a manager discovered $841 missing from one of the registers. Loss prevention officers reviewed video surveillance footage and noticed two women making a purchase at the register in question. The video showed one of the women reaching into the cash drawer and removing money on two separate occasions during the transaction. The woman would then return some of the money to the clerk while pocketing the rest.
The clerk was not available for questioning while police were at the scene, but the store manager said the clerk explained that one of the two women had “mentioned something about the bills being very pretty and she wanted to look at them because money was boring looking where she came from.” The clerk indicated both women had Eastern European accents. According to the manager, the clerk “did not think anything of the incident at first.”


Woman Wrecks Then Eats Ice Cream Nude

<--- She really needed her ice cream fix!

A Texas mom was found naked and eating ice cream at a drug store after having crashed her car into a bus and abandoned her three kids at the scene, according to police.
Stephanie Dillard had been driving with the children in Houston when she collided with a bus, police told KPRC. All three kids, ages 5, 12 and 16 suffered minor injuries in the wreck, police said.
After the accident Dillard walked to a nearby CVS and allegedly began taking off her clothes as she ate ice cream, police told KPRC. Investigators said she fought their efforts to arrest her.
Dillard was charged with endangering a child in connection with the bizarre series of events and her kids were placed with their grandmother, KPRC reported.
It's unclear why Dillard allegedly stripped down to eat ice cream. Weather reports indicated Houston hit a high of 93 degrees last Friday.

Butcher Kills Wife Then Sells Her As Meat

An Egyptian butcher loved his trade so much he chopped up his wife, rolled up her meat in neat hand-sized portions and sold those over the counter to his unsuspecting ‘endearing’ customers.

A horrible fight between the butcher and his wife led to the man committing this most gruesome act.

But one customer with a more ‘refined’ set of taste buds wasn’t convinced it was goat meat he was eating at dinner time. The man notified local police who had the meat examined at a laboratory where it was concluded that meat in question didn’t come from a goat but was in fact human flesh.

The butcher was arrested. He confessed to killing and butchering his wife. An investigation of his shop led police to the cooler, where they found one of the women’s hips and what was left of the ‘roulades’. As his defense, the Butcher told authorities that he had killed his wife because she refused to listen to him.



The School Principal Drug Dealer

<--- High there.

Walmart Madness #16! The Shoplifting Deputy

Mosley has been with the Lake Sheriff's Office since February 2007. A patrol deputy, he has been SUSPENDED WITH PAY, pending the outcome of an administrative disciplinary review, a sheriff's spokesman said.
He was arrested Tuesday afternoon with a co-defendant, Jason James Pelleteri, 37, who doesn't work for the Sheriff's Office.

Store officials became suspicious of the men, who were seen pushing shopping carts in the store, pacing the aisles and acting nervously before hiding the merchandise and leaving without paying, a police report said.
About 1:35 p.m., Pelleteri was seen pushing a cart through the electronics department, where he picked up several ink cartridges. He then walked to the toy department and picked out several cartridges for the children's computerized game systems, Vtech and LeapFrog, a report said.
Mosley then met him and began sorting through the merchandise and added several shaving kits to the cart, a report said.
The two men continued to pace the aisles, with Mosley looking up for security cameras, as the merchandise was placed inside a tan shopping bag. Then they went outside into the garden center, where Mosley helped Pelleteri hide the bag on his person, before they both left the store without paying, the report said.

Cooked Squid Inseminates Womans Mouth

     According to a scientific paper from the Journal of Parasitology, a 63-year-old Korean woman "experienced severe pain in her oral cavity immediately after eating a portion of parboiled squid along with its internal organs." She spat out the food in her mouth, but still had a "pricking and foreign-body sensation" in her oral cavity. When she went to the hospital, they removed a dozen "small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms stuck in the mucous membrane of the tongue, cheek, and gingiva." Yes, the dead squid's spermatophores were still active, and they'd inseminated the woman's mouth.

Walmart Madness #15! Children Tied And Blindfolded

A couple from Northlake were ordered held on $50,000 bail each after police found two of their children, ages 5 and 7, bound hand and foot and blindfolded in a Walmart parking lot in Lawrence, Kan., authorities say.
Adolfo and Deborah Gomez were ordered not to have contact with each other or any of their children, according to prosecutors.
Police found a 5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl sitting outside the family’s older gray Chevrolet Suburban, blindfolded and bound at the hands and feet, after a woman called 911 Wednesday morning.
“We’re very fortunate that she saw this, because it didn’t occur in the middle of the parking lot,” said Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley.

The SUV – which apparently had transmission problems --  was parked in the far corner of the lot, and the view of the children was further shielded by a earthen berm and a retaining wall.

“I don’t know if the witness was going to the garden center, which is on the west side of the store, or using a little-used exit, but she was in a position to see quite a bit more than the average person coming into the parking lot would have seen.

"And she saw what she believed to be a child that was bound. So when we responded to that, often times in this job usually what you’re given is not what’s occurring. That kind of happened here – what we actually found were two children that were bound outside the vehicle.”

McKinley said three other children -- 12- and 13-year-old girls and a 15-year-old boy -- locked themselves inside the SUV, which had clothing, cardboard and other items stacked across the windows and blocking any view inside.

Police did not try to force their way into the SUV, but rather called juvenile officers who helped talk the children into coming out on their own about an hour later, McKinley said.
Gomez, 52, was detained by officers when he returned to the Suburban and was Tasered when he tried to break free and enter the SUV, McKinley said. His wife, 43, was arrested inside the store about 10 minutes later.

The two children who were bound were examined at the scene, and McKinley said there were no injuries found on them.

Naked, Bleeding, Fleeing - From A Spider

Police responding to reports of a bloody streaker running through the streets of Albion encountered a 20-year-old man who had apparently fled his home after waking up to find a spider in his bed.
Edwards County Sheriff Darby Boewe told the Evansville Courier & Press the man appeared to have become disoriented and had run out his house through a glass storm door while dressed in his birthday suit.
By the time police found the man, he had returned to his house and was wearing shorts, Boewe said.
The man suffered cuts to his arms, legs and a finger from broken glass and was transported to a hospital by ambulance, the sheriff said.
Boewe told the Evansville Courier & Press he did not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident.
“I just think he was sleeping in the nude and was really disoriented from waking up to find a spider in his bed,” he said.


Alligator Bites Off Captains Hand

Wildlife officials say an alligator has bitten the hand off an airboat captain in southwest Florida.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials say wildlife officers tracked and euthanized the alligator after the attack Tuesday afternoon in Everglades City.
Commission spokeswoman Carli Segelson tells the Naples Daily News the hand was pulled from the alligator's stomach and taken to the hospital where the captain was being treated.
No additional details about the attack were immediately available. It was unclear if anyone else was in the boat.


Walmart Madness #14! Baseball Bat Battery!

A man with a baseball bat attacked a customer leaving a Walmart on Monday morning, according to Lake City police.

Emory Alford told officers he was walking to his car in the far end of the parking lot about 9:50 a.m. when Jacob Henry Jr. approached him with a bat.  Alford and witnesses say that Henry didn't say or demand anything before he began swinging the bat.
Police say James Maness was using a car wash across the street when he witnessed the attack and ran to assist Alford. At that point Henry ran away, dropping the bat several rows away.
Police, joined by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department and K-9 teams from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Department of Corrections, tracked Henry. The dogs found Henry several hours later inside a former Sears building.
Henry, 29, was arrested without incident and transported to the Columbia County Detention Center, where he was booked on charges of felony aggravated battery and burglary to a structure.
Lake City police say Alford was taken to Lake City Medical Center, then transferred by air ambulance to Shands Medical Center in Gainesville.  His condition was not available, but he was still hospitalized on Tuesday afternoon.

A Dingo DID Eat Her Baby

<-- The mother is finally vindicated

The official finding that a dingo -- a type of wild dog -- killed Azaria ends a legal battle that has been fought over four inquests, a murder trial, through Federal and High Court appeals and a judicial inquiry.
Until Tuesday, questions had remained over the cause of Azaria's death, despite a 1988 ruling quashing Chamberlain-Creighton's conviction and life sentence for her daughter's murder.
Turning to address the family directly, Morris said: "Please accept my sincere sympathy on the death of your special and loved daughter and sister Azaria.
"I'm so sorry for your loss. Time does not remove the pain and sadness at the death of a child," she added, her voice straining with emotion.
Stuart Tipple, the lawyer who has represented the couple throughout their ordeal, described the atmosphere inside the court as "electric."
"When the coroner extended her sympathy and broke down herself I don't think there were too many dry eyes," he said. When the Chamberlains left the court room they were given a standing ovation, he added, and later outside they were applauded by the waiting press.
"I've never seen that done before. I thought that really indicates how the tide has changed."
Everything changed for Lindy and Michael Chamberlain on the night of August 17, 1980.
Court documents stated, Lindy, then 32, left the campsite barbecue to put her daughter and six-year-old son Aiden to bed in the family tent where her other son, four-year-old Reagan, was already asleep.
According to her testimony, Lindy tucked Azaria into her bassinet before going with Aiden to the car to get some baked beans after he complained that he was hungry.
"There is no doubt that she did return to the barbecue area, accompanied by Aiden and carrying the tin of beans and a tin opener, about five or ten minutes after she had left. She seemed normal and quite composed. No one saw any blood on her clothes or her person," the court documents read.
It was during her absence from the barbecue that the prosecution alleged Chamberlain-Creighton slit her baby's throat with a pair of scissors before hiding the body, possibly in a camera bag. She was alleged to have buried the body later near the campsite with the help of her husband Michael. He was charged with being an accessory to murder after the fact in a conviction that was later quashed.
Outside the court Tuesday, Michael Chamberlain declared, "The truth is out."
"This battle to get to the legal truth about what caused Azaria's death has taken too long," he said. "However, I am here to tell you that you can get justice even when you think that all is lost."

Necrophiliac Pedophile Penguins

     It was the sight of a young male Adélie penguin attempting to have sex with a dead female that particularly unnerved George Murray Levick, a scientist with the 1910-13 Scott Antarctic Expedition. No such observation had ever been recorded before, as far as he knew, and Levick, a typical Edwardian Englishman, was horrified. Blizzards and freezing cold were one thing. Penguin perversion was another.
Worse was to come, however. Levick spent the Antarctic summer of 1911-12 observing the colony of Adélies at Cape Adare, making him the only scientist to this day to have studied an entire breeding cycle there. During that time, he witnessed males having sex with other males and also with dead females, including several that had died the previous year. He also saw them sexually coerce females and chicks and occasionally kill them.
Levick blamed this "astonishing depravity" on "hooligan males" and wrote down his observations in Greek so that only an educated gentleman would understand the horrors he had witnessed. Back in Britain he produced a paper (in English), titled Natural History of the Adélie Penguin. However, the section about the animal's sexual proclivities was deemed to be so shocking it was removed to preserve decency. Levick then used this material as the basis for a separate short paper, Sexual Habits of the Adélie Penguin, which was privately circulated among a handful of experts.

Walmart Madness #13! The Crazy Streaker

WARWICK, R.I. -- A man who ran naked through the Walmart store at the Rhode Island Mall and then swam across river next to the mall's parking lot was captured Wednesday night after running back and forth across the northbound and southbound lanes of Route 295. Lt. Michael Forde said the incident unfolded when police received a report from the store at 6:05 p.m. that there was a naked man running through the aisles yelling incoherently. By the time police arrived, the man had left the store and swam across the adjacent river. Apprehended after running across Route 295 a second time, he was taken to Kent County Hospital for evaluation. The man carried no identification, but Forde said on Thursday that police now know who he is. But because of medical privacy issues, Forde said, the man's name would not be disclosed. He said the man is 39. SOURCE

Walmart Madness #12! Cooking Meth In Custody

A shoplifting suspect just couldn't wait to get out of Walmart's security holding room and cook up some meth — so she allegedly set up her portable meth lab right then and there.
After the St. Louis-area store's loss prevention officers detained the woman, believing her to have been shoplifting, they left her in the room and went to call the police, local NBC affiliate NewsChannel 5 reported.
When the police showed up, they found a 20-ounce soda bottle in her purse that had been cooking meth while she was being held. 
"The sergeant on the scene who helped to dismantle it said it was currently cooking when [police] showed up and it had the potential to become flammable or blow up at any time," Lt. Mark Cox of the St. Louis County Police told NewsChannel 5.
The store was immediately evacuated, since meth labs can pose explosion hazards. A hazmat team cleaned up the holding room in the Mehlville, Mo., store, according to NewsChannel 5.
Many more meth-making ingredients were reportedly found in the suspect's car in the parking lot.

Woman In Robbery Steals The Robbers Car

<--- Blanca,  the desperate car thief.

A Houston woman who was caught in the middle of a bank robbery said she was so scared, she ran and jumped into the nearest car she could find and took off.
But it just so happened, the car belonged to the suspects.
Blanca, a mother of four, said it happened while she was cashing a check at a Chase bank on I-10 east at Uvalde. All of a sudden, the masked, armed suspects stormed the building, and she split.
"I was just thinking, ‘Just get out now and just duck, ‘cause they are going to shoot you,’" Blanca said. "And it was just going through my mind – ‘my children, my children.’"
Blanca said she didn’t have much time to think, but she wasn’t staying around for whatever the suspects had planned.
"I went the other way like this and I just ran, and I kind of just ducked down and I pushed the first door and I threw a lady out of the way," she said. "The first car I saw, I jumped in."
She said the car was on, so she floored it, desperate to escape.
She said she drove a few miles from the bank, pulled into a parking lot, fell out of the car and ran into a Cricket store, screaming for help.
But what she didn’t know was, she’d just stolen the suspects’ getaway car – which police said the suspects had stolen from someone else.
"Then, they arrested me, and they said, ‘You’re the one that stole a stolen car.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, it was their car,’" Blanca said.
The FBI eventually cleared Blanca and said she was just a witness.
The robbers ended up getting away, but police said they had to carjack someone to do it. Fortunately, that driver wasn’t hurt – and neither was Blanca.


Woman Squeezes Testical Out Of Mans Scrotum

<--- The mad Squeezer!

JUNE 5--A North Carolina woman is facing a malicious castration charge after she allegedly squeezed the scrotum of a 59-year-old acquaintance so vigorously that one of the victim’s testicles was dislodged, according to police.
The victim told Shelby Police Department officers that he was attacked early Saturday morning by Joyce Maxine Gregory, with whom he had been arguing in his apartment. The man said that when he departed the residence to dial 911, he was confronted by the 35-year-old Gregory. According to cops, Gregory and the man had previously been in “some sort of a romantic relationship.”
As detailed in a wince-inducing police report, the victim told cops that Gregory “grabbed him by his scrotum” in a vise-like grip. While he was able to “jerk away from her grip,” the man freed himself after Gregory had succeeded in squeezing a testicle out of his scrotum.
Officer M. L. McPherson reported that the victim’s “scrotum had been split open,” adding that, “I was also able to observe one of the subject’s testicles protruding from the scrotum area.”
Following the attack, the man was able to walk to a nearby EMS station, where he was initially treated before being transported to the Cleveland Regional Medical Center. A urologist told police that the man’s scrotum injury “could be fixed with several stitches and that no serious long term damage had occurred.”
Pictured in the above mug shot, Gregory was subsequently arrested at the home where she had quarreled with the victim. Cops observed “blood on both the floor of the porch and on the siding of the residence.”
Along with malicious castration, Gregory was charged with assault causing serious bodily injury (both counts are felonies). Now locked up in the county jail in lieu of $20,000 bond, Gregory is scheduled for a June 18 court hearing.
While en route to jail, cops noted, Gregory--who appeared “highly intoxicated on some type of narcotic”--removed her pants and “urinated in the back seat of the patrol vehicle.” (3 pages)

Caretaker Licks Monkey Anus For Over An Hour

Yesterday, Wuhan Zoo Monkey caretaker Zhang Bangsheng unbelievably used his tongue to lick a small monkey’s butt!
50-year-old Zhang Bangsheng used warm water to clean a small Francois’ Leaf Monkey’s buttocks, then began using his mouth to lick it, not stopping for over an hour, until the little monkey defecated a single peanut. Only after the peanut was defecated did Zhang Bangsheng laugh with satisfaction.
As it is understood, this small Francois’ langur is only 3 months old, and is the first Francois’ Leaf Monkey to be born in nearly 10 years at this animal park. The Francois’ langur is a rare primate from Guangxi and Guizhou and is amongst the nation’s most protected animals. Because it is so precious, the zoo gave it to model worker and high-level expert Zhang Bangsheng to care for and raise.
On the first day of the “May 1st” short holiday, Zhang Bangsheng let the small Francois langur enter the monkey exhibit for the first time to meet visitors so it can see more of the world. The next day, Old Zhang discovered that the little monkey had indigestion and difficulty defecating, and immediately became worried. Seeing peanut shells on the ground, Old Zhang immediately understood that visitors had definitely tossed peanuts to the small monkey, and the toothless monkey swallowed the peanut whole. If it does not quickly defecate it, it would endanger the little monkey’s life.
Because the monkey is too small, it wasn’t suitable to use medicine to let it defecate. The only way was to lick its butt, to prompt it to defecate the peanut, and so the scene at the start of this article occurred.

Walmart Madness #11! Taking A Cab To Shoplift

Deputies say Lizette Marie Sepulveda stole a TV and plants Monday from Wal-Mart in Punta Gorda. The 29-year-old Port Charlotte woman reportedly arrived at the store in a taxi and had planned to use a taxi as her getaway car with the stolen items, according to a news release from the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office.

The store manager told deputes Sepulveda proceeded past all checkout registers to an awaiting taxi in the parking lot with her stolen goodies.
Sepulveda's plan was foiled when the manger approached the taxi and she then ran away. When deputies arrived, they found Sepulveda at a gas station. The manager positively identified Sepulveda as the one seen on surveillance video stealing the items valued at $455 and taking them to a taxi, the release states.
While being searched at the jail, deputies located a broken glass tube with wire mesh screen in Sepulveda's duffle bag that tested positive for opiates, according to the release.
She was charged with Grand Theft and Smuggling Contraband into a Correctional Facility.
Sepulveda is a convicted felon with 24 bookings and 34 records, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office.

Truck Smashes Bar, Pins Patrons

 Amazing surveillance video has been released of a pickup truck crashing into a bar in Little Canada, Minn. Wednesday.

Six people were hurt when the vehicle, driven by an unidentified 51-year-old woman, swerved through traffic and crashed into the establishment, pinning patrons against the bar.

Authorities said medical reasons appear to have been a factor. Police said some injuries sustained in the crash were serious, but not life-threatening.

Man Puts On Sunscreen Then Catches On Fire

A Stow man says he was nearly killed after applying sunscreen. Standing in front of his barbecue grill, Brett Sigworth says it was only a second before his body was engulfed in flames. “I went into complete panic mode and screamed,” he says. “I’ve never experienced pain like that in my life.” He was at his lakefront home entertaining friends when he applied Banana Boat sport aerosol sunscreen. He says, “I sprayed on the spray-on sunscreen, and then rubbed it on for a few seconds. I walked over to my grill, took one of the holders to move some of the charcoal briquettes around and all of a sudden it went up my arm.” Brett says his body was on fire, “it went wherever the block went.” Ten days later, his skin is still healing. The worst of the burns are around his neck. Stow Man Catches Fire After Applying Sunscreen Pictures from the hospital burn unit show the extent of his second degree burns on his chest, ear and back, where you can see the lines where he sprayed the sunscreen. “There is no warning that says this product is flammable when applied to your skin or for a period of time when applied to skin,” he says. The warnings only read, “flammable, don’t use near heat, flame or while burning” but nothing about once it’s applied. “I think if people were told this is flammable for two minutes on your skin afterward, people wouldn’t use it,” he says. And that’s why he is speaking out to prevent this from happening again. Brett says, “I had no idea and it was so scary and I just wouldn’t want to see it happen to anyone else.” Brett says he was lucky his friends and girlfriend saved his life that day by putting out the flames. Doctors say if he was on fire for only a few more seconds he would have suffered third or fourth degree burns.
