A new crime category: a sauce and battery
A 38-year-old man has been charged with beating another man at a motel recently with an unlikely weapon — a bottle of Worcestershire sauce.
Officers said that a 43year-old man was returning to his room last week, and as he opened the door the suspect hit him on the head with condiment bottle. The suspect then grabbed a fire extinguisher and hit the man in the head and face.
The suspect was jailed. The victim was admitted to a hospital. He is expected to recover. Age is just a number — just like her rap sheet
An 80-yearold woman with a criminal record stretching to 1955 has been sentenced to three years in state prison for ransacking and stealing cash from a Southern California medical office.
Doris Thompson thanked a judge Wednesday for not sending her to Los Angeles County jail, which she said she doesn’t like. She also told the judge, “God bless you.”
State records show Thompson, who has used 27 aliases, has repeatedly been arrested in the last 55 years, mainly for petty theft and burglary. She has gone to jail several times.
Thompson slipped into the medical office Dec.19 and stole money from drawers. She pleaded guilty to burglary and was ordered to pay about $1,400 in restitution. She will be eligible for parole in about 18 months. And you thought your mom was embarrassing
The mother of a second-grader got drunk, then ran through the halls at her child’s school waving a sword and looking for a fight, police said. The day before, the woman’s daughter had gotten into a spitting match with another girl, authorities said. So the woman, 32, went to the school with the sword — apparently she wanted a piece of the other child’s parents.
According to court records, an employee at Riverview Elementary School in Memphis reported a drunken woman armed with a sword was running through the halls of the school and had threatened to cut her.
Officers who arrived on the scene retrieved a black cane that concealed the blade.
The woman was charged with aggravated assault and having a weapon on school property. Jerry’s final thought: Stay home next time
A North Carolina man was sentenced to three days in jail for violating probation by leaving the state to appear on “The Jerry Springer Show.”
The Gaston Gazette reported Thursday that Richard Peterson’s probation officer spotted him on the TV program taped in Connecticut. The 30-yearold man and his girlfriend got an all-expenses-paid trip to appear on the show, where Peterson boasted about a one-night stand with a stripper.
