Artist Creates a Monster and Goes to Jail

Joseph Carnevale, 21, has been arrested by the Raleigh Police Department for creating this cool traffic barrel monster.  Rumor has it that this little artistic prank would have gone unpunished if it wasn’t for the fact that the police chiefs wife, Sarah Renyolds had a fender bender after spotting this and was laughing so hard she lost control of her brand new Navigator and crashed into the barrels just beyond this peice of art.

New way to dry a baby!

A Mesa dad turned on the family clothes dryer with his son still inside — and he did it on purpose, cops say.  The 1-year-old boy had been sitting inside the dryer with the door open, which the young family thought was “cute,” according to a Mesa police news release. When the boy’s mother left the laundry area to grab a camera, the boy’s father — 19-year-old Jose Rocha (pictured) — closed the dryer door and turned the appliance on, police say.

The kid began screaming and was soon rescued, suffering a few bumps and bruises. Family members were so outraged that they called the cops. Rocha was booked into jail on suspicion of child abuse.  Good job that his own family turned him in, no doubt the guy is a psycho!

Cops find cell phone in butt crack

In an incident that was quite strange and more than a little weird, a 14-year-old girl in Wisconsin was arrested for refusing to stop sending text messages during class, where she proceeded to hide the phone in her ASS CRACK. According to the Smoking Gun, the unnamed girl apparently ignored the teacher’s requests to stop using her Samsung phone, but she kept on SMSing as she pleased. When the school security officer was called in, the girl claimed she didn’t have a phone. The school finally called in the police, who searched the girl, and found the phone under her pants “in the buttocks area.” The police confiscated her phone and charged her with disorderly conduct. These are your tax dollars at work, Wisconsin.  Only in the USA.

Carter says “Puff” – Weird Pardons

This name may not be immediately familiar, but you’d probably recognize Yarrow’s voice if he sang “Puff, the Magic Dragon.” As one-third of the folk outfit Peter, Paul and Mary, Yarrow dominated the music and protest scenes of the 1960s.

Yarrow had legions of young fans, but unfortunately, some were a bit too young. In 1970 he was convicted of taking “improper liberties” with a 14-year-old fan, an error for which he spent three months in jail. On his last day in office, though, Jimmy Carter granted Yarrow a pardon.

Yarrow, for his part, admitted he made a huge mistake and later contritely said, “It was an era of real indiscretion and mistakes by categorically male performers. I was one of them. I got nailed. I was wrong. I’m sorry for it.” I would bet my pay cheque that it was not the first time Yarrow took liberties with a minor.

Four Year Old Shoots Babysitter

Only in the USA – police say a 4-year-old boy in southern Ohio shot his babysitter because the sitter accidentally stepped on his foot. Police said 18-year-old Nathan Beavers and several other teenagers were babysitting several young children in a mobile home in Jackson on Sunday when the shooting occurred.

Witnesses told police the 4-year-old retrieved the shotgun from a bedroom closet and shot Beavers. Police said the child was angry because Beavers accidentally stepped on his foot.

Beavers was hospitalized with minor pellet wounds to his arm and side.

Police say another teen was also injured with shotgun pellets.

Jackson County Sheriff John Shashteen said authorities are investigating the shooting. The child has not been charged.  I thought a four year olds shoulder would pop off if he discharged a shotgun.

17 Year Old Shoots Parents Over Xbox 360 Game

This news is weird, no doubt but also sad. Daniel Petric, a 17 year old boy shot his parents after they took away Halo 3 (an xbox 360 video game).

He came home after sneaking out to buy the game. His father then took it, placing the game in a lockbox—the same lockbox in which he stored his 9mm handgun.

Somehow, Petric retrieved his game and the gun from the lockbox. And according to his father, Petric entered the living room with a chilling request.

“Would you guys close your eyes?” I have a surprise for you.At that point, he was said to shoot both of his parents in the head, killing his mother.
