• Perturbed about the taste of a hamburger she purchased from Hardee’s, a Tennessee woman twice called police emergency operators to lodge a complaint about the fast food outlet’s “nasty” grub.

    Those calls, of course, made Donna Marie Nichols, 50, the latest restaurant patron to get arrested for “Abuse of 911 system,” according to a criminal complaint filed last Thursday in Roane County’s General Sessions Court.

    After Nichols made two 911 calls, a cop responded to her location, and was told that she “had purchased a meal from the Hardees in Rockwood and that the hamburger tasted funny.” Nichols, pictured in the above mug shot, added that before she contacted cops, she called Hardee’s, “and that they told her to return and they would refund her money.”

    In one of her 911 calls (listen), Nichols told a police operator that the Hardee’s food “is no good” and that, “I only took a sma read more...

    NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - North Miami Beach police said surveillance video shows dozens of high school students demonstrating in the Trayvon Martin case Friday ransacking a Walgreens store.

    The incident occurred during a walkout from North Miami Beach Senior High School in support of Martin, 17, who was fatally shot in Sanford.

    "I wasn't gonna take no more from him," Taylor added. "I went up to him and I hit him. Didn't hit him that hard, but I hit him."

  • A man who "pulled his penis out and urinated on the floor" and who passed gas with an "unbearable" aroma was arrested after accusations of 911 misuse, according to a recently released affidavit.

    A Fort Pierce police officer Dec. 17 was in Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute's emergency room when Isreal Rosado, 44, was discharged. Rosado refused to leave until he got a meal, and police told him to leave.

  • An elderly Florida man needed stitches Wednesday after a 22-year-old woman announced she was a vampire and began biting his face and neck.

    Milton Ellis, 69, said that he had fallen asleep in his electric wheelchair on the porch of a vacant Hooters in St. Petersburg. He awoke to find Josephine Smith on top of him.

    "I’m a vampire, I am going to eat you," Smith told Ellis, according to an affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun.

    St. Petersburg police said that Smith had bitten chunks off of Ellis' face and part of his lip.

    Ellis called police after escaping to a nearby Shell gas station where he had first met Smith earlier in the evening.

Ellis maintains that she was fully clothed when he left her.

    Smith was arrested on charges of assaulting an elderly person and was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

  • Local country fan Reginald Spears was arrested over the weekend for merchandise tampering at the new Super Walmart out on the bypass. The details of his infractions are unique, to say the least.

    Third-shift electronics cashier Lena Johnston first noticed Spears rifling through the country CD section and filling a grocery cart with at least 100 discs before leaving the department. She thought he was just a rabid music fan until he returned 15 minutes later with the same cart and began slipping CDs back onto the shelves while looking around suspiciously.

    Johnston walked over to Spears and asked if he’d decided not to make the massive music purchase. Spears responded “Yeah, yeah uh, yes ma’am” and began sweating profusely. He became spooked shortly afterwards and haphazardly threw the remainder of his CDs on the shelf before walking away. Johnston investigated the country section and noticed that it was full of unwrapped, well-worn CDs that Spears had apparently brought from his ho read more...
