It will be Christmas in the clink for The World’s Most Arrested Man™.
Kentuckian Henry Earl, whose rap sheet has more than 1500 entries, appeared in a Lexington courtroom yesterday for a probation violation hearing in connection with his most recent bust, an October 4 collar for public intoxication.
Earl, 64, had his probation revoked by District Court Judge Megan Lake Thornton, who ordered him locked up until February 5. On October 3--a day before Earl’s most recent arrest--he was placed on probation for two years for disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
Along with waiving costs costs, Thornton referred Earl (pictured above) to the Hope Center, a substance abuse treatment program for inmates.
But after being arrested for public intoxication, Posey confessed, saying “I had to pee bad.” When Corporal Kenneth Hall asked Posey why he did not just ask to use the Radio Shack bathroom, he replied, “Stores usually won’t let you…so I didn’t ask.”
A Radio Shack worker told police that Posey caused about $800 in damages. Along with soiled carpet tiles ($116.84), the urine also landed on boxes containing televisions and audio equipment.
Posey, who was also charged with criminal mischief, was booked into the Greene County jail on the misdemeanor counts.
A family argument over boxed macaroni and cheese resulted in the arrest of a 20-year-old South Carolina man who is jailed for allegedly battering his father, police report.
Brian Rossi, 54, told sheriff’s deputies that he was “trying to make some macaroni and cheese for dinner” yesterday when he “discovered that there was only pasta and no more cheese packets” in the box.
After exchanging a few words with his father, Alex “ran after him and began to punch him in the face and head.” The younger Rossi “eventually took Brian to the ground and continued to hit him.”
When deputies arrived at the pair’s home, “Brian had a fresh laceration beneath his left eye with bruising and swelling.” During questioning, Alex reported that he and his father “were arguing over macaroni and cheese,” adding that he “did punch Brian in the face, but that Brian also punched him in the face.”
Pictured at left, Alex, who had no visible injuries, was arrested for misdemeanor assault and battery and booked into the county jail, where he is being held in lieu of $1097 bond.
Devon, 22, remains locked up in state prison on weapons, home invasion, and attempted murder charges. His earliest release date is February 2042, when he will be 51.
Juronn, 22, is wanted by authorities for violating probation in connection with a robbery conviction. A bench warrant for Juronn’s arrest was issued two weeks ago by a Circuit Court judge.
Deshawn, 22, is almost a year into a five-year probation sentence imposed earlier this year (he was a codefendant with Juronn in the robbery case). The brothers were convicted of robbing a Saginaw man of money and a cell phone.
The Shivers triplets will celebrate, as it were, their joint 23rd birthday on January 10. The siblings are seen in the above mug shots (Devon is at left, Juronn is in the center, and Deshawn is at right).
At around 2 AM today at a Walmart in South Carolina, Brad Hawkins, Samsung cell phone in hand, entered the men’s bathroom and proceeded to the handicapped stall, where he then “engaged in conversation while defecating.”
Hawkins left without his phone, realizing this about 30 minutes later. So he dialed 911 after returning to the stall and discovering that his phone had been pinched.
As noted by Officer Frank Osrechek, who responded to the call for help, Hawkins “observed a preponderance of fecal matter on the toilette, suggesting the suspect is someone who stands while defecating.”
But Osrechek added that there were investigative limits when it came to recovering a phone: “A sample of the excrement was not taken nor were photographs.”
While it does not appear that the National Security Agency maintains classified fecal matter sample databases, revelations from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden are continuing.
The family (a married couple and their children, aged 12, 9, and 7) inside the buggy told police that they heard “a loud noise, described as sounding like a firecracker” as the car passed by.
Upon returning to their farm--which is about a mile from the shooting scene--the family discovered the horse was bleeding from its mouth. After removing a harness, family members spotted a bullet hole in the chest of the animal, who died before a veterinarian could arrive at the farm.
Police Lieutenant Robin Weaver told TSG that a veterinarian will attempt to extract the bullet from the horse so that investigators can develop ballistics evidence. Weaver added that, if identified, the unknown assailant could face weapons, reckless endangerment, or even hate crime charges.
An Oklahoma man was arrested yesterday for allegedly masturbating in the women’s bathroom at a Tulsa Walmart, a solo act that was interrupted by a female shopper who discovered the naked suspect around 8:30 AM, police report.
Customer Beth Davis told police that she entered the restroom yesterday morning and found a nude man pleasuring himself in front of the mirror. Davis, who fled the bathroom in search of help, said that she later saw the suspect--now dressed--depart the bathroom and head for the Walmart’s exit.
So the 61-year-old Davis--who told TSG she was “in panic mode”--began filming him with her cell phone, while providing accompanying narration: “My name is Beth Davis and I witnessed it. You were naked and had your pants down around your ankles. Someone stop him. Do not let him go out that door.”
Davis’s 22-second clip, which she provided to TSG, can be viewed above.
While the man ran from the store, a second shopper photographed his vehicle and its license plate. Within two hours, Tulsa cops arrested Brian Hounslow, 37, for felony indecent exposure. Hounslow, seen in the above mug shot, was booked into the county jail, where he is being held in lieu of $5000 bond.
According to a booking report, Hounslow confessed to sex crime detectives that he had been masturbating in the Walmart bathroom. The document also notes that Davis saw Hounslow’s “fully exposed turgid penis.”
Pictured above, Davis, a grandmother of eight, said that Hounslow offered an apology, of sorts, when she confronted him after he left the restroom. Hounslow, she recalled, said, “I didn’t know it was the women’s bathroom.”
The father of a murdered teenager wants Google to delete a Google Maps satellite image that the man believes shows the dead boy lying along railroad tracks near his California home.
The jarring image shows a body splayed near tracks in Richmond, a city in Contra Costa county. A police car is seen nearby, while other figures--presumably cops--are steps away.
While the date the satellite image was recorded is unknown, Jose Barrera believes that the photo shows his son Kevin, 14, who was murdered in August 2009. Investigators found the teenager’s body along the Union Pacific railroad tracks.
Barrera has said he will petition Google to remove the image, which is seen above (click to enlarge).
According to Sergeant Nicole Abetkov, a Richmond Police Department spokesperson, Barrera’s body was found on August 15, 2009 in the 1100 block of Hensley Street, which roughly coincides with the location shown in the Google image. The teen’s murder remains unsolved.
After a man’s phone rang several times during a screening of “12 Years a Slave,” a perturbed 71-year-old Florida woman allegedly struck her fellow moviegoer in the face, according to cops.
On Wednesday, Jean Pierre Louis, 38, was watching the film about the enslavement of Solomon Northup when his “cell phone began ringing several times” inside the Royal Palm cineplex in Bradenton, police report.
When questioned by a sheriff’s deputy, Dimon (pictured above) claimed that “Pierre Louis had hit her hand away when she reached out for him.”
Pierre Louis, who sustained no injuries, told a deputy that he “did not want an ‘old lady’ to go to jail and just wanted an apology.” Dimon subsequently apologized to Pierre Louis via the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy.
Pierre Louis signed a waiver of prosecution against Dimon, and was provided “a case number on a victim’s rights brochure.”
In news that should shock nobody, the woman who appeared onstage this week claiming Andy Kaufman was alive--and that she was his daughter--is a New York City actress whose actual father is a Manhattan doctor, The Smoking Gun has learned.
Posing as the late comedian’s daughter, Alexandra Tatarsky, 24, appeared Monday night at the Andy Kaufman Awards and told the audience that Kaufman dropped out of show business nearly three decades ago to be a “stay-at-home dad.”
With Kaufman’s brother Michael at her side, Tatarsky did not offer any details of how Kaufman purportedly staged his death.
According to a source familiar with this week’s Kaufman stunt, Tatarsky met Michael Kaufman earlier this year while working at a Manhattan gallery exhibiting a collection of Kaufman “ephemera and artifacts” from the comedian’s personal and professional life.
Tatarsky was recruited by Michael Kaufman to play the role of Andy Kaufman’s daughter. The comedian, who died of lung cancer in 1984, had one daughter (who was born in 1969).
Pictured above, Tatarsky did not respond to a voicemail message left on her cell phone. Her actual father, Andrew, is a 58-year-old psychologist specializing in substance abuse treatment.
While many news outlets greeted word of Kaufman’s resurrection with skepticism, the gossip rubes at TMZ breathlessy reported that, “The woman's account dovetails eerily with a story Michael told during the ceremony about a letter he found while going through Andy's stuff -- a letter Andy wrote explaining a plan to fake his death.”
In a bid to secure a “police discount” at Dunkin’ Donuts, a Florida man allegedly showed drive-thru workers a phony badge, displayed a holstered handgun, and falsely claimed to be a law enforcement officer, according to investigators.
“I did a stupid thing! I showed a badge to get the law enforcement discount of my food,” Barry told investigators, according to a sheriff’s report. Barry, who works as a salesman at an imaging firm, added that he claimed to be a United States Marshal.
Dunkin’ Donuts workers told cops that Barry was a regular customer who “comes through the drive through and demands a police discount for his order.” Barry, the employees recalled, claimed to be a federal air marshal.
Worker Michelle Hoeltk told deputies that Barry had been “abusing his discount by coming in on the weekends with his family and demanding the discount.” She added that Dunkin Donuts managers decided to “no longer offer him the discount because of his abuse.”
When Barry showed up at Dunkin’ Donuts last Wednesday morning, a worker denied him the discount. An “irate” Barry--who was driving a Volkswagen minivan--then displayed a badge and firearm. “See I am a cop,” the 6’1’, 320-pound Barry reportedly declared.
A police surveillance operation netted Barry yesterday morning as he drove away from the Dunkin' Donuts. Deputies seized a fake law enforcement badge from his wallet and a .38 caliber revolver from his front pocket (those items are seen in a police evidence photo).
Barry was busted for impersonating a law enforcement officer and improper exhibition of a firearm. He was booked into the Pasco County jail, from which he was released last night after posting $5150 bond.
A Wisconsin man called 911 early Sunday morning and asked for assistance in removing a snoring woman from his bed, police report.
Benjamin Duddles, 41, dialed police around 4:20 AM to say that he wanted “a female removed from his bed,” adding that he was not sure “how she got into his apt.” He subsequently reported that he had let the woman into his home and she “just went into his bed and fell asleep.”
The woman, Duddles complained, was “now snoring like a train and he wants her out.”
When officers arrived at Duddles’s Waukesha residence, he revealed they “drank together, had relations and she fell asleep.” After repairing to his living room, Duddles returned to his bedroom and could not roust the snoring woman, “so he called police,” according to a Waukesha Police Department report.
The unidentified woman was “found to be fine medically, just has sleep apnea.”
Cops advised Duddles that a snoring woman in his bed was not a police matter since he had allowed her into his home. Duddles, who was not arrested, was “provided the comfort of his couch for the evening” and directed to “work out the ‘issue’ in the morning.”
Gossett, on the other hand, “jumped into the passenger seat and just sat there,” according to a police report. An officer added, “I had to tell the female numerous times to get dressed before she finally did.”
But that was not a smooth process: “When the female finally got dressed she attempted to put a cheese burger on her foot as if it were a sandal,” reported Officer Joshua Brickle. Yes, that’s right, Gossett mistook a burger for footwear.
Subsequent Breathalyzer tests confirmed the obvious: Gossett’s blood alcohol content level was more than two times the .08 legal limit, while Lucas blew a .154.
“Due to their extremely intoxicated state and their fornicating in a business parking lot,” the argumentative and incoherent Gossett and Lucas (seen above) were arrested for loitering and public drunkenness and transported to the Walton County jail.
