    2/22 UPDATE: Police today identified the DUI suspect as Nathan Danzuka, 28. Danzuka, pictured below, was arrested last year for DUI and reckless endangering, according to jail records.

    In what appears to be a new record for extreme DUI, a motorist’s blood alcohol content was measured at .77--more than nine times the legal limit--after he crashed his car following a short police chase Friday afternoon, Oregon cops report.

    According to investigators, the driver--who has not been named pending the filing of criminal charges--was involved in a hit-and-run in Madras, a city 125 miles southeast of Portland.

    Upon locating the suspect vehicle, a Ford Explorer, cops sought to pull over the driver, but he sped away. A short chase ended when the man, who cops described as “HIGHLY intoxicated,” lost control of his car and crashed into a concrete barrier.

    The driver was subsequently transported to a local hospital for a medical evaluation. A blood sample taken from the suspect was tested and showed his blood alcohol level was .778. The state’s legal limit is .08.

    Officers observed “several alcoholic beverage containers within the vehicle,” according to the Warm Springs Police Department.

    The motorist, who is facing multiple criminal charges, was driving on a suspended license due to a prior DUI conviction.

    Previously, the highest BACs reported in these pages were the .72 recorded by an Oregon woman in 2007 and the .708 recorded by a South Dakota woman in 2009.

    A Florida Man arrested yesterday for indecent exposure told police that he was “protesting for civil rights by showing his penis to traffic,” according to a criminal complaint.

    Cops charge that Riley James Cushman, 23, was spotted alongside a roadway in Palm Harbor, a Tampa suburb, with “his pants down to his knees holding his penis while facing traffic in a vulgar manner.”

    Upon spotting a sheriff’s deputy around 3:30 PM, Cushman pulled up his pants and began walking away. When subsequently confronted by the cop, Cushman reportedly explained that he was “protesting for civil rights by showing his penis to traffic, but was now finished and wanted to go home.”

    Cushman’s display resulted in his arrest for exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor. He was booked into the county jail, where he is being held in lieu of $150 bond. Cushman has pleaded not guilty to the indecency charge.

    According to state records, Cushman, seen in the above mug shot, is registered to vote from his family’s residence in Dunedin, about four miles from Palm Harbor. The civil rights protester is a registered Republican.

    Meet Matthew Kyle Leatham, a 22-year-old Florida Man (as that forehead tattoo attests).

    Leatham was arrested around 4:45 AM Sunday after he twice “called 911 to find a ride home,” according to a court complaint which notes that the accused “cursed at the call taker during the call.”

    Since the police emergency line does not double as a taxi dispatcher, Leatham was charged with misuse of the 911 system. He was also hit with a marijuana possession charge after a cop found some pot on him during a post-arrest search.

    Leatham, who works as a cook at a Port Richey seafood restaurant, was released on his own recognizance last night from the Pasco County jail.

    Leatham was cited last month for reckless driving following a crash that caused an estimated $8500 in damages, according to a court filing.

    A 65-year-old Connecticut woman--likely one of the country’s oldest graffiti artists--is facing a criminal rap in connection with a spate of anti-Joe Biden tagging, police report.

    Investigators charge that Emily Winters earlier this month defaced the exterior walls of a school, a TJ Maxx department store, and another property in Fairfield, the town where Winters resides.

    Cops say that Winters, charged with criminal mischief, confessed to the graffiti spree after turning herself in at police headquarters. She is scheduled for a February 12 appearance in Superior Court.

    According to police, Winters--armed with yellow and red spray paint--tagged private property with phrases like “Beijing Biden,” “Commie Kamala,” “Biden for Socialism,” and "United States of China."

    The hoodie-wearing Winters is pictured in the above mug shot. Two examples of her illegal street art are seen below in police evidence photos.

    A North Dakota man on probation for narcotics possession was wearing a “Don’t Do Drugs” t-shirt when he was arrested yesterday for methamphetamine possession.

    Esequiel Robles, 40, was collared following a traffic stop in Williston. A search of his vehicle turned up a baggie containing meth and a spoon with meth residue, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in District Court.

    Charged with narcotics possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, Robles was booked into the Williams County jail, where the above photo was snapped.

    Robles was convicted in late-2019 for meth possession and was sentenced to three years in prison (two of which were suspended) and placed on two years probation upon his departure from custody.

    Robles is scheduled for a bond hearing on January 20 and a preliminary hearing on February 17.

    The FBI last night arrested the Florida Insurrectionist who was seen walking through the Capitol Rotunda carrying a lectern pilfered during the invasion of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office.

    Adam Christian Johnson, 36, was collared Friday evening and booked into the Pinellas County jail on federal felony charges. Seen in the mug shot below, Johnson is being held without bond in the local lockup on a United States Marshals Service warrant.

    Johnson, who lives with his family in Parrish, a community about 40 miles south of Tampa, has been charged with theft of government property, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and unlawfully entering a restricted building.

    In a statement of facts accompanying the criminal complaint filed against Johnson, FBI Agent Michael Jeng reported that Pelosi’s lectern, valued at more than $1000, was found post-insurrection by a Senate staffer in a corridor of the Capitol’s Senate wing. The lectern had been stored in Pelosi’s suite of offices.

    The court filing also included a photo from Johnson’s Facebook page showing him posing next to a sign noting that an area of the Capitol building was “Closed to all tours.” The image (seen below) was captioned “No.”   

    According to jail records, Johnson was booked around 9 PM last night. He will remain in custody in advance of an initial appearance in U.S. District Court.

    As TSG reported Thursday, Johnson, a Tennessee native, is married to a doctor and lives in a home the couple purchased in 2016 for about $400,000. His rap sheet includes marijuana possession arrests in 2003 and 2004, and a probation violation bust.

    When Florida jailers booked Johnson yesterday, they noted his tatttoos: “God, wings, cross.”

    1/12/2021 UPDATE: Colt surrendered today at a jail near his Idaho residence. With federal charges looming, Colt is locked up on a United States Marshals Service hold.

    “I’m all over the news now,” said Josiah Colt as he recorded a selfie video after exiting the Capitol, where, he breathlessly reported, he “hopped down into” the Senate chamber and plopped into what he thought was the seat of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whom the rioter referred to as a “treasonous bitch.”

    Colt, a 34-year-old Idaho resident, was first photographed dropping into the Senate chamber from the visitors gallery. He then sat in Vice President Mike Pence’s chair and raised his right fist in triumph.

    The twice-divorced Colt, who will surely soon be arrested by federal agents, is identified by Washington, D.C. cops as a person of interest in connection with yesterday's “unlawful entry” into the Capitol building.

    Colt is pictured at right in a 2012 mug shot taken by the Ada County Sheriff’s Office following Colt’s conviction for resisting or obstructing police. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail and placed on unsupervised probation for one year, according to court records.

    Colt’s next booking photo session will likely be handled by the FBI or the United States Marshals Service.

    Colt last year incorporated Funnel Craft LLC, a digital marketing firm for which he is the chief executive. The firm’s web site--which appears to have gone offline post-insurrection--boasts of being staffed by “marketing geniuses” who have produced in excess of $10 million in revenue for its clients. The firm’s address is listed as Colt’s apartment in Meridian, a city outside Boise.

    Meet Tyler Johnathon Cribbs.

    The 28-year-old Floridian was charged yesterday with robbing an acquaintance of his wallet and phone, according to a probable cause affidavit.

    Police allege that Cribbs accosted the victim last month as the man exited his residence in Astor, a community 40 miles west of Daytona Beach. The 37-year-old victim told cops that Cribbs reached into his pants pocket and stole his belongings.

    The victim said that Cribbs subsequently threatened to burn his house down and “told him that every time he sees him, he is going to take everything he’s got.” The victim, who said he has known Cribbs his whole life, added that he has “been robbed by the Defendant previously as well.”

    Along with a felony robbery count, Cribbs was also charged with theft, a misdemeanor. Upon being located by cops Sunday, Cribbs allegedly resisted officers and was found in possession of methamphetamine, leading to the filing of additional charges against the 5’ 7”, 230-pound Daytona native.

    Locked up on $8500 bond, Cribbs is scheduled for a February 1 arraignment. He has been ordered by a judge to have no contact with the victim.

    Cribbs, whose rap sheet includes convictions for possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting, and driving without a license, has the words “KING” and “SIZE” tattooed on his knuckles in the style of “The Night of the Hunter.” He also has “Perfect” inked on one arm and “Imperfection” on the other.

    As for the Snidely Whiplash mustache seen in Cribbs’s latest booking photo, it appears to be the kind of ephemeral Sharpie artwork that is usually created when the human canvas is passed out on a couch.

    When a Louisiana cop early today informed her that she was under arrest for driving with a suspended license and a probation violation warrant, motorist Renee Whiddon would have none of the patrolman’s Scrooge-like attitude.

    “No, it’s Christmas,” Whiddon said as she turned away from Deputy Timothy Fischer and began to run from her vehicle, which was pulled over on a street in West Monroe around 4:35 AM.

    Whiddon’s getaway was brief, however, as Fischer noted in an arrest affidavit.

    “Whiddon made it a very short distance before she ran into a parking lot sign and fell to the ground,” the cop reported.

    Seen above, the 34-year-old Whiddon was then handcuffed and transported to jail, where she was booked on several charges, including methamphetamine possession and resisting an officer.

    Bond has not been set for Whiddon, so it appears likely she will spend Christmas Eve and Christmas behind bars.

    According to court records, Whiddon was arrested in late-October for possession of meth, cocaine, and Suboxone, possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal possession of a firearm. Those charges are pending.

    An Oklahoma man is behind bars for child neglect after allegedly giving his two-year-old daughter sips from a bottle of Smirnoff Ice, investigators say.

    James Watts, 27, was arrested this week after the child’s mother contacted Oklahoma City cops to report that the toddler was given alcohol by her biological father.

    Brionca Peterson provided police with a Snapchat video showing Watts giving the girl “two sips of Smirnoff Ice wine cooler,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

    In the video, Watts “states in text ‘My baby gone be drunk,’” the affidavit states. Along with an “emoji hand on face,” Watts wrote, “She liking it a lil too much.” Describing the video, an investigator noted that Watts allowed the victim to “take a drink then he takes a sip and hands it back to her so she can have another sip of the alcoholic beverage.”

    Pictured above, Watts is being held in the Oklahoma County jail in lieu of $50,000 bond on the felony charge.

    In a classic Masshole move, a Massachusetts native now living in Florida was arrested Saturday evening for allegedly battering a “partially disabled” victim who “disagreed with the defendant about liking teams from Boston.”

    Police charge that Jeffrey Randall, 59, engaged the victim “in an argument about sports teams from Boston” while the men were inside Randall’s St. Petersburg residence Saturday evening.

    When the victim disagreed with Randall “about liking teams from Boston,” Randall became “physically aggressive and pushed the victim twice in the chest,” according to an arrest affidavit.

    “The victim is partially disabled and unable to defend himself,” a sheriff's deputy reported.

    Randall, arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge, was released from the county jail yesterday morning on his own recognizance. Randall’s rap sheet includes convictions for theft; trespassing; disorderly intoxication; probation violation; and battery on a law enforcement officer.

    Jail records list Massachusetts as Randall’s place of birth, while other records show that he has previously lived in and around Boston, as well as a Cape Cod town.

    After being denied Geek Squad service at a Best Buy store due to his refusal to wear a mask, a Florida Man allegedly coughed and spit all over a store counter before spraying a beverage from his mouth as he departed the business, police charge.

    Alton Ashby, 51, was arrested for disorderly conduct following his outburst Saturday afternoon at a Best Buy store in Vero Beach. Ashby, who lives in nearby Palm Bay, was freed from the Indian River county jail after posting $500 bond.

    According to an arrest affidavit, the maskless Ashby walked up to the Geek Squad counter, where a worker asked him to put on a mask. When Ashby refused, the worker summoned her manager, who provided Ashby with a mask.

    After putting the mask on, Ashby removed the face covering “and started sneezing,” the manager told police. Upon being told that he would not be provided service, Ashby, a witness said, “cough and spit all over Geek Squad counter then continued to walk around the connected department to do the same thing.”

    When Ashby would not leave Best Buy, a worker dialed 911. As Ashby walked to the front of the store, he was carrying a Coca-Cola “which he sprayed everywhere as he was walking out.” A Best Buy employee told police that customers left due to the incident and that workers had to sanitize multiple areas of the store.

    When questioned by police, Ashby reportedly said that he was “upset and is going through a lot this year and got carried away at the store.”

    Ashby is scheduled for a January 5 arraignment on the misdemeanor charge. Seen above, Ashby is a registered Republican, according to Florida voter records.

    After being placed in shackles due to some alleged drunken dumbassery, a Florida collegian told cops that being restrained “gets me off,” and then requested someone “pinch my nipples,” according to an arrest report.

    Cops allege that Joseph Lancaster, a 22-year-old University of South Florida student, caused a disturbance early Sunday after refusing to pay an $820 bill at a St. Petersburg nightspot.

    After Lancaster argued with security guards, his friends stepped in and paid the bar tab. Lancaster, stumbling and slurring his words, then began shouting, “I am sorry none of you graduated high school, but fuck you.” Upon being detained by police, Lancaster’s belligerence did not cease. “Fuck you, pussy” and “Bro, this is fucked,” he shouted, cops noted.

    When a police transport van arrived, Lancaster “even argued with the van driver,” the report states. “The defendant had to be placed in shackles and stated, ‘This gets me off.’ He also said ‘pinch my nipples.’”

    Charged with disorderly intoxication, a misdemeanor, Lancaster was booked into the county jail (from which he was released this morning after posting $100 bond).

    Pictured above, Lancaster was arrested in June for driving under the influence. He was freed on $500 bond in that pending misdemeanor case, which is scheduled for a December 11 hearing.
