    Meet Iconic Facce.

    Well, his actual name is Jimmy Maurice Lewis II, a 37-year-old convicted felon who spent years in federal prison following a 2008 bank robbery conviction for stealing $9609 from an Alabama credit union.

    Lewis was arrested Saturday in connection with the March 22 robbery of a BancorpSouth branch in Gulfport, Mississippi. Cops initially identified the suspect as a “black female in her mid to late 30’s.” After producing a note demanding cash, the robber fled on foot from the bank.

    Investigators subsequently identified Lewis as a suspect and nabbed him at the Houston, Texas airport upon his arrival on a flight from Mexico (where Lewis appears to have undergone some kind of cosmetic procedure).

    Lewis, currently locked up in a Houston jail, is awaiting extradition to Mississippi, where a bank robbery charge awaits. Lewis is seen in the below BancorpSouth surveillance images.

    Lewis was convicted at trial in 2008 for the robbery of an Alabama Credit Union location. During the robbery, investigators reported, Lewis threatened the life of a teller, saying, “No games, no jokes and get your hands up. Don’t mash any alarms. Don’t move or she’s had it.” Lewis was sentenced to 51 months in prison to be followed by three years probation.

    After paying $500 for what he thought would be a sexual encounter at a Days Inn motel, a Florida Man called cops to complain that he had been ripped off, police say.

    Jon Omer Sengul, 50, dialed 911 last Friday evening to report that he “paid for sexual activities he had not received,” according to a West Palm Beach Police Department report.

    When contacted by police, Sengul “began to make incriminating statements,” prompting Officer Gregory McDonald to read him his rights. After saying that he understood the Miranda warnings, Sengul continued his tale of woe.

    Pictured above, Sengul said that he offered the four occupants of another motel room $500 “in order for one or more of them” to come to his room and “have sexual relations with him.”

    At this point, McDonald “clarified” with Sengul that he was admitting to soliciting another person for sex. Sengul reportedly confirmed that was exactly what he had done.

    Continuing, Sengul said that he called police because “after giving the individuals the money they did not come to his room to engage in the aforementioned sexual relations.”

    Sengul was subsequently arrested for soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor. Now free on $500 bond, Sengul, who has pleaded not guilty, is scheduled for arraignment on April 29.

    The police report does not identify the four inhabitants of the other motel room, or why Sengul thought they were receptive to a cash-for-sex transaction.

    In an apparent bid to mask the odor of booze on his breath, a suspected drunk driver “was spraying Axe body spray in his mouth” when approached by a South Carolina cop, according to an arrest report.

    A car driven by Efren Mencia-Ramirez, 49, was pulled over Saturday afternoon when a Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted the vehicle speeding and swerving.

    Upon approaching the auto, the deputy noticed that Mencia-Ramirez and his passenger were surrounded by empty Corona Extra beer cans. Mencia-Ramirez, the cop added, was also “spraying Axe body spray in his mouth...to cover the smell of alcohol on his breath.”

    Mencia-Ramirez, who reeked of booze, was arrested after failing a series of field sobriety tests. His blood alcohol content was registered at nearly twice the legal limit.

    Seen above, Mencia-Ramirez was charged with drunk driving, driving without a license, driving without insurance, and carrying an open container of alcohol. He is being held in the county jail.

    Meet Mary Ann Parrish.

    The Florida Woman, 40, was arrested early yesterday after repeatedly calling 911 to report that “her boyfriend was not being nice to her,” according to a criminal complaint.

    Cops say that Parrish dialed the emergency response number six times over a four-hour period ending Monday around 1:30 AM. A sheriff’s deputy responding to one of Parrish’s 911 calls witnessed her again “on the phone with 911 while on scene.”

    Pictured above, Parrish was charged with using the 911 system “for purposes other than an emergency.” She is being held in the county jail in lieu of $150 on the misdemeanor charge.

    Parrish was arrested at a residence in Lacoochee, which is several miles west of the Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve.

    3/25 UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal is reporting that “CC-1” is Mark Geragos, the L.A. lawyer who has represented Colin Kaepernick, Michael Jackson, Winona Ryder, and Chris Brown.

    Michael Avenatti was assisted in his alleged extortion of Nike by a fellow lawyer who is licensed to practice in California and is similarly known for his “representation of celebrity and public figure clients,” according to a federal criminal complaint.

    The second lawyer, branded by prosecutors as an Avenatti co-conspirator, is only identified in the U.S. District Court filing as "CC-1." He is accused of working with Avenatti to devise a scheme to extort Nike.

    According to FBI Agent Christopher Harper, the unnamed attorney and Avenatti engaged in a series of phone calls and meetings with Nike lawyers during which Avenatti warned that he would go public with damaging allegations that would result in the public company’s loss of $10 billion in market capitalization.

    The second lawyer is accused in the criminal complaint of threatening economic harm in order to extract multimillion dollar payments from Nike. Avenatti’s claims against the shoe and apparel firm centered on alleged under-the-table payments made by the company to top high school basketball players.

    At the direction of FBI agents, Nike lawyers this month recorded phone conversations with Avenatti and the unnamed attorney. Additionally, both Nike lawyers “video- and audio-recorded” a March 21 meeting with Avenatti and the alleged co-conspirator. The meeting took place at “CC-1’s office in New York.”

    During the meeting, Avenatti--after conferring privately with “CC-1”--told the Nike lawyers that, in return for a $22.5 million settlement payment, “we ride off into the sunset.” Avenatti also allegedly warned that if the deal was not finalized by today, March 25, he would air his allegations against the company at a press conference.

    A Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened to kill his wife told police that he had “been doing meth and masturbating all day, and it feels great,” according to a criminal complaint.

    Eric Farnack, 46, was arrested Sunday night at the Lehigh Valley home he shares with his spouse. Cops arriving to the residence were met by Farnack’s panicked wife, who said that he was “out of control” and had threatened her life.

    Farnack then exited the home “in a state of rage,” police reported. As he approached officers, the screaming Farnack was warned that he would be tased if he did not follow police directions.

    Complying with orders, Farnack got on the ground and declared that he had “been doing meth and masturbating all day, and it feels great.” Cops noted that Farnack appeared “highly under the influence.”

    Charged with making terroristic threats, harassment, and disorderly conduct, Farnack was booked into the Northampton County Prison, where he is being held in lieu of $15,000 bail.

    Farnack has previously been convicted for meth possession, resisting arrest, and making terroristic threats. His Facebook page includes a profile image (seen below) that purports to be the logo of the “National Crystal Meth Hallucination League.”

    A Florida Man known as “Mr. Perfect” is in jail for literally battering a female victim, police report.

    Cops charge that Dwayne Zimmerman, 45, was intoxicated late Friday night when he insulted the victim, who was on the porch of Zimmerman’s mobile home preparing to make pancakes for dinner.

    After Zimmerman flung a cooking pan, cops say, he picked up a bowl filled with pancake batter and threw it at the victim. The bowl shattered, with its contents landing in the woman’s hair and on her clothing. Batter also caked portions of the screened-in porch.

    Pictured at right, Zimmerman was arrested at the scene on a felony battery charge. He was booked into the Hernando County jail early Saturday morning and remains locked up in lieu of $2000 bond. A judge has ordered Zimmerman to have no contact with the victim.

    Zimmerman’s rap sheet includes arrests for grand theft; disorderly intoxication; battery; narcotics possession; criminal mischief; drunk driving; and assault. In criminal court filings, his alias is listed as “Mr. Perfect.”

    In October 2017, Zimmerman was arrested for battery after allegedly striking his sister in the chest with a thrown gallon of ice cream. Zimmerman, who reportedly was intoxicated at the time, attacked his sibling inside his mobile home. Prosecutors subsequently declined to pursue the misdemeanor case.

    Zimmerman was arrested in mid-February for striking his brother in the face. The battery took place at Zimmerman’s mobile home in Brooksville, a Tampa suburb. Zimmerman, who dismissed the blow as a “little tap,” was convicted earlier this month of misdemeanor battery and was sentenced to the three days he had already served in jail and was ordered to pay $1003 in fines and court costs.

    After being caught having sex in a hot tub at an Ohio water park, a couple was arrested Tuesday evening on trespassing and disorderly conduct charges after they fled from security personnel.

    Cops allege that Kamden Mack, 25, and Taylor Coats, 22, were trysting in a spa at the Kalahari Resort when they were spotted by a lifeguard. When the lovebirds, who live in Michigan, refused to leave, police were summoned to the water park, which advertises “hair-raising waterslides, world-class spas, kids’ play areas, and diverse dining options.”

    During Mack’s and Coats’s 8 PM hot tub frolics, cops noted, “several families” were “seated at surrounding tables with young children.”

    After cops arrived at the resort, Mack and Coats (seen above) allegedly took off running from security guards. Mack was subsequently tackled, handcuffed, and placed in the rear of a police cruiser, from which he later bolted due to a malfunctioning lock. He was again tackled, this time by a cop, and returned to the squad car.

    Coats, who was apprehended inside her hotel room, was charged with two misdemeanors--persistent disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing--and released from jail on her own recognizance.

    Mack was charged with the same misdemeanors as Coats, but he was also hit with a felony escape count for running from the patrol car. He was freed from the Erie County jail after posting $21,000 bond. While Mack told cops he was a lawyer, his Facebook page identifies him as a sales manager for UGG, the footwear company.

    The Florida Man who denied ownership of three syringes found in his rectum during a jail strip search will not face criminal charges in connection with the keistered contraband, according to court records.

    Wesley Dasher Scott, 40, was busted in early-January on separate warrants charging him with possessing marijuana and drugs without a prescription. While being frisked by an arresting officer, Scott denied having any illegal items hidden on (or in) his body.

    However, during a subsequent strip search at the county lockup, Scott "removed three syringes from his rectum and provided them" to a jailer. But while he had fished the items from inside his body, Scott claimed the syringes “were not his.”

    Seen above, Scott did not reveal who purportedly owned the needles (or where he supposedly found them). In addition to the existing drug counts, Scott was charged with introducing contraband into a correctional facility, a felony.

    But prosecutors subsequently opted not to pursue the contraband charge against Scott. The brief declination notice came as Scott agreed to a plea deal on the pot and prescription drug charges. Scott was sentenced to 40 days in jail and ordered to pay $550 in fines in connection with the misdemeanor convictions.

    Scott was arrested again two weeks ago for allegedly swiping merchandise worth $56.51 from a Walmart near his residence in Largo, a Tampa suburb. Scott, who spent about 20 hours in custody before posting a $150 cash bond, had no drug paraphernalia inside any body orifice when apprehended.

    A Florida prosecutor today released court records detailing Robert Kraft’s two visits last month to a Florida massage parlor where the billionaire allegedly paid for sex acts.

    Kraft, owner of the NFL’s New England Patriots, has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution in connection with his trips to the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, not far from his winter residence in Palm Beach.

    Kraft, investigators charge, visited the massage parlor on January 19 and again the following morning, January 20 (the day of the AFC championship game between the Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs). Kraft, 77, was recorded on both days by surveillance equipment surreptitiously placed inside the business by police.

    During the January 19 visit, Kraft had his genitals manipulated by two female workers, one of whom subsequently “can be seen wiping Kraft’s penis with a white towel.” Investigators confirmed Kraft’s identity after he departed the spa in a chauffeur-driven white Bentley that officers pulled over during a traffic stop ruse.

    The following morning, Kraft arrived at the spa in a 2015 blue Bentley. While inside a massage room, a female employee was recorded "manipulating Kraft's penis and testicles." She “then put her head down by his penis. This went on for several minutes.” The woman later “wiped Kraft in the area of his genitals with a white towel.”

    A Kraft spokesperson has denied that the tycoon "engaged in any illegal activity."

    Lei Wang, 39, and Hua Zhang, 59, were charged last week with operating the Orchids of Asia spa as a house of prostitution. In a probable cause affidavit, Kraft is referred to as “Male 8” and “Male 13.” While Wang’s name is redacted from the Kraft criminal complaints, the probable cause filing reveals that she received payment from Kraft at the spa’s front desk. On January 19, Wang and a 59-year-old employee “took turns manipulating Male 8’s genitals.” A short time later, investigators noted, “Wang began to clean Male 8’s genitals with a towel.”

    An ex-con is back behind bars after allegedly striking his girlfriend in the forehead with a “hard piece of cookie,” Florida cops report.

    According to a criminal complaint, the victim told cops that Smith “threw a hard piece of cookie and hit her in the forehead.” Smith reportedly “admitted to throwing the cookie at the victim without her consent.”

    Police noted that the woman had a red mark on her forehead, but suffered no further injuries.

    Smith, locked up in the Pasco County jail in advance of a court appearance today, has a lengthy rap sheet that includes convictions for grand theft, trafficking stolen property, fraud, and weapons possession. He has served three separate terms in state prison (totaling five years in state custody).

    Smith is seen in the above mug shots, a pre-tattoo image and a photo taken following Sunday’s collar.
