    No, forehead tattoos aren’t just for kids!

    Floridian Secundino Cardenas, 67, has, for some unknown reason, a reflection on giving and getting respect inked in Spanish on his noggin.

    Cardenas, a Miami resident, posed for mug shots Sunday following his arrest on two counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    Cardenas, a registered sex offender, is being held in lieu of $7500 bond at Miami’s Metro West Detention Center. Scheduled for a November 14 arraignment, Cardenas has been ordered by a judge to stay away from his alleged victim, a family member.

    The defendant's forehead tattoo declares, “Yo soy el indio Colon respetame que yo te respeto.”

    An Ohio man has pleaded guilty to public indecency for attempting to copulate with a red van parked on a Dayton street, court records show.

    Michael Henson, 35, was arrested in mid-August after police received 911 calls reporting that a man was “pulling his pants down and swinging on stop sign" and getting intimate with an auto.

    When cops confronted Henson, he was only wearing gym shorts and shoes and "appeared under the influence of some type of narcotic." Which would explain why a witness reported that Henson placed his penis “in the front grill of the van and began humping it as if he was having sex with the van.”

    Henson communed with the van “for a while” before passing out in a nearby yard, witness Marjorie Evans told police.

    Seen above, Henson was hit with a pair of misdemeanor public indecency charges. In a deal with prosecutors, he pleaded to one count, while the other was withdrawn, according to Municipal Court records.

    Henson was sentenced to 60 days in jail, though the bulk of that term was suspended. While he was ordered to pay $111 in court costs, the payment of that fine was also suspended. He will, however, spend a year on community control and must undergo mental health counseling if required by probation officers.

    Henson’s rap sheet includes multiple narcotics-related convictions, as well as other convictions for public intoxication, theft, receiving stolen property, and carrying a concealed weapon.

    A Wyoming man who arranged to pay a prostitute with a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder and French fries was arrested when he showed up for the illicit encounter, food in hand, only to discover that he had been snared in a police sting.

    As part of an undercover operation, cops in Casper placed a Backpage.com ad in the guise of a hooker trolling for clients.

    Investigators charge that David Mangus, 22, answered the ad and arranged last week to meet the purported prostitute for sex. But instead of paying cash in return for oral and vaginal sex, cops say, Mangus worked out a deal to provide the hooker with food instead.

    Specifically, a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder with cheese and a medium size order of French fries.

    Mangus, seen above, was arrested when he arrived to meet the supposed hooker. He was carrying a bag with the McDonald’s grub when undercover officers took him into custody.

    Mangus was charged with soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor. He was booked into the Natrona County jail and later released.

    A Minnesota man wearing a Donald Trump mask was punched in the face early today as he walked on a Rochester street with a male friend wearing a Hillary Clinton mask, police report.

    According to cops, the 23-year-old victim was attacked just after midnight by Gabriel Majak, 35. Police say that the masked duo was posing for photos with passersby on a downtown street when Majak approached and threw a punch at the man in the Trump mask.

    The victim was not injured, though the blow broke his glasses.

    Majak, seen above, was subsequently arrested and charged with assault, disorderly conduct, and property damage. Majak was booked into the Olmsted County jail, where he is awaiting arraignment on the three misdemeanor counts.

    Majak’s rap sheet includes multiple convictions for trespassing and disorderly conduct. He was arrested last year for making terroristic threats at an Army recruiting station in Rochester. According to police, Majak warned recruits that “future soldiers will have their heads cut off like chickens.”

    In a plea deal, Majak earlier this year copped to a reduced charge and was sentenced to 49 days in jail and 60 hours of community service. Additionally, as part of a one-year probation term, he was barred from using alcohol and drugs and was ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

    Two 18-year-old women dressed as clowns were arrested last night after they jumped out of a car and chased after a pair of petrified girls, according to Michigan police.

    The victims, both 14, ran from the screaming clowns to police headquarters in Roseville, a city in suburban Detroit. The children, cops reported, were “in hysterics.”

    Officers dispatched to investigate the 9 PM incident quickly located the costumed suspects (whom cops described as “morons” and “idiots” in a press release). Upon spotting the cops, the clowns took off on foot, but were quickly apprehended.

    The suspects--Elandra Sledge and Jaime Sailinis--were dressed in “full clown regalia from head to foot,” police reported. The duo “stated they thought it was funny to terrorize unsuspecting pedestrians,” investigators added.

    Sledge (left) and Sailinis are pictured above. Photos of the duo’s respective costumes are seen beneath their mug shots.

    The teenagers were charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, and booked Thursday night into the Macomb County Jail (from which they were subsequently released). Sledge and Sailinis are scheduled for an October 20 District Court hearing.

    A 12-year-old New Jersey girl was arrested last night for a “killer clown hoax” launched from the Instagram account “Killerclownfromnj.”

    The student, whose name was not released by cops, appears to be the youngest person, to date, collared for making clown-related threats.

    In the Instagram post, the girl made an “unspecified threat” to a public school in Toms River. According to police, “Killerclownfromnj” warned of visiting the middle school tomorrow morning. “The poster also added a series of emoji’s implying violence,” cops added.

    Investigators concluded that the “ill-conceived hoax” posed no “credible threat to students.”

    The Instagram post was tracked back to the girl by cybercrime investigators who arrested the child on a third-degree count of causing false public alarm. The student is also facing disciplinary action levied by school officials.

    Note: Police initially said that the threat was posted to Twitter, but subsequently corrected that report to say that the message was on Instagram.

    A Florida man is jailed on a domestic battery charge after slapping his girlfriend in the face with a sex toy, according to police.

    Micah Norman, 34, was arrested Saturday evening following a confrontation with his live-in girlfriend at a residence in Madeira Beach, a city west of St. Petersburg.

    A criminal complaint alleges that Norman and the 29-year-old victim were arguing around 10:20 PM when Norman grabbed the woman and shook her. He subsequently “struck the victim in the face with a sex toy,” a sheriff’s deputy reported.

    Seen at right, Norman was charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor, and booked into the county jail. A judge has ordered him to have no contact with the victim.

    Norman, who is being held in lieu of $200, has prior arrests for drunk driving, disorderly intoxication, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest.

    The complaint indicates that there was an “indication of alcohol influence” with regard to the incident.

    Court filings do not further describe the sex toy used in the alleged battery. The complaint notes that no weapon was seized by police.

    An accused thief’s distinctive “man bun” helped lead to his apprehension in connection with the swiping of video surveillance cameras from a Florida business, according to a court filing.

    Police charge that Landon Hall, 26, last week stole four video cameras from the Villa Laundromat in St. Petersburg. Hall allegedly removed the cameras from their mounts while concealing his face with a “yellow colored pocket square” and a shirt.

    Hall’s efforts to hide his face were not successful, according to a sheriff’s deputy who noted that, “The defendant also had a very distinct ‘man bun.’”

    Seen above, Hall was identified by a cop with whom the suspect had multiple prior contacts. Hall was collared Sunday afternoon for grand theft. He is locked up in lieu of $2000 bond on the felony charge.

    Hall’s lengthy rap sheet includes busts for trespassing; retail theft; narcotics possession; robbery; loitering; credit card fraud; burglary; and possession of drug paraphernalia. Prior mug shots indicate that Hall’s “man bun” is a recent tonsorial touch.

    A California man attacked several victims with stolen crucifixes during an early morning rampage that ended with his arrest on robbery, burglary, and assault with a deadly weapon charges, cops report.

    According to the Ventura Police Department, Forrest Brantley, 35, broke into the gift shop of a Spanish mission early Thursday morning and stole a pair of crucifixes.

    Brantley, seen at right, then attempted to rob a victim of their phone in the mission’s parking lot. “When the victim refused to give Brantley the phone, Brantley hit that victim with one of the crucifixes,” police charge.

    Brantley then began walking down Ventura’s Main Street “and did the same thing to two more victims, striking them with the crucifix,” cops reported. He subsequently broke the car window of a 75-year-old man who was seated inside the vehicle and “struck the man, causing him injury.”

    After breaking into a thrift store and stealing a bicycle, Brantley “approached another victim...and battered that victim by striking him with the crucifix.”

    Officers subsequently apprehended Brantley and booked him into the Ventura County jail on an assortment of misdemeanor and felony charges. Locked up in lieu of $202,500 bail, Brantley is scheduled to appear in Superior Court this afternoon.

    The victims targeted in the crucifix attacks sustained minor injuries, said cops, who added that the 75-year-old victim was treated at a local hospital for a “moderate injury to the face.”

    Two Georgia residents are locked up on charges that they phoned 911 with false reports about evil clowns lurking outside a van.

    According to the Troup County Sheriff’s Office, investigators were dispatched last night to investigate a report of “unknown persons dressed as clowns standing outside a white van.”

    After the van’s owner gave deputies permission to search the vehicle, no clowns or costumes were found.

    During a subsequent interview with deputies, Brandon Jerome Moody, the man who placed the 911 call, initially claimed to have seen “clowns around a white van parked on Hammett Road.” Moody, 26, then changed his story before admitting that he fabricated the clown tale.

    Moody, pictured above, confessed that he was aware of “all the complaints about clowns and the schools being on lock down.” This week, local cops reported receiving several calls about “clowns in a van and in wooded areas trying to talk to children.” Police warned that “this behavior is not cute or funny” and could result in criminal charges.

    During questioning, Moody also told deputies that his sister-in-law had also placed phony 911 calls about clown sightings. Rebecca Moody, 27, was later apprehended.

    Charged with obstruction and unlawful conduct during a 911 call, the duo was booked last night into the county jail.

    Meet Cindy Jean Underwood.

    The 39-year-old West Virginian is locked up on $10,000 bail after she allegedly put out a cigarette in her boyfriend’s eye, according to court records.

    The attack, cops say, occurred Monday as Underwood and Jeremy Hughes were arguing in the home they share in St. Albans, a city in Kanawha County.

    As the pair squabbled, Underwood jammed a lit cigarette into her beau’s eye, police charge. When cops arrived at the residence in response to a destruction of property complaint, they summoned an ambulance, which transported Hughes to a local hospital for treatment of an injury to his left eye.

    Hughes complained to police that he "did not have sight in his eye."

    Pictured above, Underwood--who is facing a felony malicious wounding charge--is being held at the South Central Regional Jail in Charleston. She is scheduled for a September 22 preliminary hearing.
