Jessica Zarate Left In A Hurry - Mother Abandons Toddlers After Son Was Found Alone, Eating From Garbage Can


Jessica Zarate "I love my babies" MySpace Page

Madera, California (The Weekly Vice) -- Jessica Zarate, a 21-year-old California woman was arrested after abandoning two boys. One was found eating from a garbage can.

According to Madera Police, a three-year-old boy was found eating out of a garbage can in the city's Rotary Park. Officers were unable to identify the boy and communication was difficult because of the boy's broken English language skill.

Authorities released a photo of the boy, which the local media broadcast to the public.

On Monday at about 5 p.m. Zarate contacted authorities, claiming that the child was hers. Officers went to the woman's residence on Tuesday, but discovered that she had fled. She reportedly left her two-year-old son behind without relatives to care for him. Zarate was later discovered hiding out at a friend's residence.

Zarate was arrested and booked into jail on two counts of felony child abandonment. She was also arrested on an outstanding warrant.

Both children were taken into protective custody until a suitable home can be found.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

The kid is eating out of a trash can? Perhaps she could have skipped a few meals and given them to him. Hopefully that won't even be a possibility for a very long time.

Jennifer Ortman Hits Sour Note - Music Teacher Convicted Of Coming To School Drunk, Playing Bumper Cars In Parking Lot


Canandaigua, New York (The Weekly Vice) -- Jennifer Ortman, 32, a former Music teacher at a Victor Primary School has been convicted on multiple charges after showing up to class drunk, wrecking multiple cars and then leaving the scene of an accident.

On Friday, an Ontario County Court jury hearing the case declared Ortman guilty on charges of driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident without reporting and two counts of criminal mischief. The DUI was classified as a felony charge because Ortman had been convicted of drunk driving just three weeks prior to the incident.

Ortman will appear in court again on May 5 for sentencing.

Ortman was arrested in June of last year after a parent saw the boozing teacher hit two cars as she attempted to park her car at school. The witness testified that Ortman staggered into school with "extremely poor balance."

Ontario County Deputies were called to the scene and requested that the teacher be pulled from class for a field sobriety test. She reportedly failed several of the tests and then refused to submit to a breath test.

Further tests determined that Ortman was also under the influence of Xanax at the time.

Following the five day trial, jurors deliberated for two days before rendering a decision.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Anyone wanna take a guess as to what the sentence will be? I say she gets no more than one week in jail...and more likely will be on short term house arrest.

We'd ask how many readers would opt to keep her entertained while on house arrest, but that might set off a stampede.

Susan Bell Assaults Neighbor’s Eyeballs - Jailed After Picking Up Dog Feces In The Buff


Portsmouth, New Hampshire (The Weekly Vice) -- Susan Bell, a 42-year-old New Hampshire woman was arrested Thursday after streaking in a neighborhood park while collecting dog feces.

Bell, who resides on Manor Drive in Portsmouth, turned herself in to authorities after a month-long investigation led to a warrant for her arrest, according to Portsmouth Police Sgt. Darrin Sargent.

Police say the incident occurred late last month after a neighbor saw Bell picking up dog feces at a Manor Drive courtyard and noticed she was completely naked below the waist. Authorities did not disclose the condition of the witness' eyesight following the encounter.

Bell was booked into jail on a charge of indecent exposure. She was released without bail.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

The real story isn't about nudity. It's not about scooping up the Hershey squirts of of a dog. The real crime here is combining two things that should NEVER be combined. The human mind was never designed to contemplate the rude awakening that vision entails. To jail with her.

Bob Epley Had A Few Bucks And A Fetish - Jailed On Charges Of Paying Kids To Fulfill His Sexual Fantasies


Nashville, Tennessee (The Weekly Vice) -- Bob Epley, a 56-year-old bus driver supervisor in Nashville was arrested Saturday on charges that he hired children to fulfill his sexual fantasies.

Single Mom Arrives Home To Find Burglars In Home - Delivers A Little Street Justice To Burlgar’s Face Until Cops Arrive


Cincinnati, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) - Lonnie Lane, a 30-year-old Ohio man was arrested Thursday for burglary - but not before homeowner Tiffany Friday delivered a little justice of her own.

According to police, Lane was burglarizing a house on Waverly Ave. when homeowner Tiffany Friday returned home to find he and another man inside her home.

Tiffany, who is a single mom, had been burglarized in November and again in December. This time, however, she decided she wasn't about to be a victim again.

"I was mad. I mean, they had took, taken everything from us. I mean, they took my daughter's games, my son's games, they took TV's, computers," said Friday.

When the two men ran from the house, Tiffany followed. The chase lead her through her backyard and into the woods behind her house. Knowing the lay of the land, she headed back to her house, jumped into a friend's car and took off after the suspect along with her friends.

Lane was spotted by Tiffany and her friend's as he was coming back out of the wood a short distance from her home. It was at that point Tiffany and her friends exited the vehicle and piled on Lane. Police arrived after Tiffany and company delivered a few punches to Lane's face to keep him subdued.

"I grabbed him by the back of his shirt and hit him in the woods," said Friday. "I never thought about what they could do to me or anything."

While Tiffany was able to hold one suspect for authorities, the other suspect reportedly got away with a Playstation and clothing belonging to her children.

Lane was booked on one count of burglary. He is being held in lieu of a $25,000 bond. The other suspect in the burglary remains to be identified.

Grieving Widow In Shock After Police Give Her The Rope Her Estranged Husband Used To Hang Himself With


South Wales, England (The Weekly Vice) -- South Wales police have some 'splainin to do after sending a grieving widow the rope her husband used to hang himself with.

South Wales police have issued an apology, but for grieving widow, Angie Gerrelli, it may be too little, too late.

Angie Gerrelli, 52, and John Gilmore, 50, had been married for 21 years. When the couple became estranged 4 years ago, John moved to Barry in South Wales. It was there he decided to take his own life by hanging. He was found hanging from a tree one November afternoon by a dog walker in Porthkerry Park.

Naturally, Angie requested that police return to her his personal effects - after all, she was the next of kin and some of those possessions were hers. And indeed the South Wales police provided those possessions, bundled up into three bags.

When Angie began to go explore the bags, she was initially pleased to see that she had gotten her laptop back in one piece.....and then something else caught her eye. Something yellow.

It wasn't until she pulled the item out that she realized what was in her hand. The bloody tow rope her husband had used to end his life with.

"The next thing I pulled out was the rope. I saw yellow, then red and realized what it was," said Gerrelli. "I went to pieces, I just sunk to the floor. I dropped it and put my hands to my face."

South Wales called Gerrelli to apologize after a friend informed them of the discovery.

"He apologised profusely, he couldn't have been more apologetic," she said. But the public has been angered by the department's bungling of the case - and for good reason.

There was one encouraging item that came out of those bags. Although John had apparently moved on, dating a woman 27 years his junior, Angie discovered a photo in his wallet that she didn't realize he had kept. A photo of her and John, taken during their years as a couple (pictured above).

One more precious item has been returned to her as well. The couple's teen son, who had lived with John while the couple was apart, has now returned to live with his mum.

South Wales Chief Inspector has also apologized for the incident and has pledged to put steps in place to ensure the incident is never repeated.

Kimberly Boone Takes A Shot In The Dark - Charged With Luring Husband To Darkened Garage And Then Shooting Him In The Chest


Kimberly Boone's MySpace Page
Kimberly Boone Jail Booking Report

Winter Springs, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Kimberly Boone, a 42-year-old wife and mother was arrested Sunday afternoon for the attempted murder of her husband.

It's a confusing tale of a picture perfect family - or so it seemed.

A content mom, a fun loving dad and two happy boys. Smiling, affectionate vacation photos show a close knit family - perhaps an enviable family, who seem to be living the dream...... until Sunday's nightmare began.

During the night, Seminole County Detectives were called to the Boone's home on a report that a man, Robert Boone, had been shot in the chest during a burglary - or so his wife told them. But when deputies arrived, they found no intruder. After blanketing the neighborhood, they still found no intruder. And there were other details that didn't quite add up.

"Immediately when we got there, we noticed something was not right in this case. We saw no signs of a legitimate burglary, usually we see forced entry," said Seminole County Sheriff's Lt. James Clark.

Then came the second piece of the puzzle. While searching the premises, a deputy located the gun used in the shooting hidden in the back yard.

Robert Boone miraculously survived the shooting. Doctors say the gunshot entered the man's chest and exited through his back without hitting vital organs. A true miracle.

When investigators spoke to Robert, he knew that he had been shot, but didn't know who did it. The pieces of the puzzle began to fall in place, however, when prints on the gun and gun registration records pointed to one assailant. Kimberly Boone.

Investigators now say Kimberly woke her husband up at about 5 a.m. Sunday morning, complaining that she heard noises in the garage. After going to the garage to investigate, Robert returned to bed reporting nothing out of the ordinary.

20 minutes later, Kimberly complained again that she heard noises in the garage - this time investigating for herself. Once in the garage, investigators say she called for her husband. When he entered the dark of the garage, she allegedly shot him in the chest.

Initially, Kimberly Boone denied knowing anything about the shooting - telling investigators that she believed it was a burglar. Detectives say Boone changed her story several times during questioning - even claiming at one point to have amnesia. But after hours of questioning, Kimberly Boone reportedly admitted to shooting her husband.

What's more, investigators have become interested in another mishap within the Boone's household. Detectives say Boone's primary residence burned down 3 months ago after Robert fell asleep and Kimberly left to run errands. The narrow timeline of that incident has investigators wondering if there's not just a little bit more to that story as well.

Kimberly Boone was booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility without bond on a charge of Homicide - Attempted Murder. She is schedule to make a first appearance on Monday, March 30.

Robert Boone is recovering from non-life threatening injuries. He is expected to make a full recovery.

The Boone's two boys Clayton and Dillon are currently residing with relatives.

Vince Shlomi Delivers Slap To Hooker’s Chops - Jailed Over Brawl With Hooker Who Bit His Tongue



Miami Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Vince Shlomi, the 44-year-old pitchman for ShamWow and Slap Chop was arrested last month for punching a high priced prostitute who bit his tongue and wouldn't let go.

According to police, Shlomi met prostitute Sasha Harris, 26, while having a drink at a Miami Beach nightclub. He reportedly brought her back to his $750 per night room at the Setai hotel and agreed to pay her $1,000 for "straight sex" according to the arrest report.

Shlomi told investigators that when he went to kiss Harris, she suddenly "bit his tongue and wouldn't let go." Shlomi reacted by punching Harris, delivering a "Slap Chop" to the woman's face. He then reportedly punched her several times until she finally released his tongue.

Shlomi, who was bleeding at this point, ran to the hotel lobby where hotel security called police.

When authorities arrived, the Shlomi and Harris smelled of alcohol. Shlomi was bleeding from his mouth while Harris suffered multiple fractures and lacerations to her face. Both were transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Investigators recovered $930 from Harris' purse.

Court records indicate that both parties were arrested for aggravated battery, however prosecutors declined to file formal charges in the case.

The full arrest report and Vince Shlomi mugshots can be found at The Smoking Gun.

Mark Adams Forgot His Manners - Gives Grandmother A Black Eye For Accidentally Stepping On His Foot


Golden Gate, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Mark William Adams, a 31-year-old Golden Gate man was arrested Thursday after giving his grandmother a black eye for accidentally stepping on his foot.

According to Collier County deputies, a dispute erupted between Adams and his 70-year-old mother after she walked by him and accidentally stepped on his foot.

Adam's, who works as a cab driver and lives with his grandmother, became angry and threw a full soda can at her - striking her in the eye. The injury caused a large black and blue mark around her eye, according to the sheriff's arrest report.

Adams was booked into the Collier County Jail on a charge of battery on a person 65 years old or older. Bond has not yet been set in the case.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:


Aside from the miserable reality that this guy was probably hit in the head too many times with boxes of Ding Dongs and Ho Ho's, what the hell is up with a 31 year old man living with his Grandma?

I'd say it's high time a relative rent a fork lift and move his sorry ass out into the street.

An Eye For An Eye - Iranian Woman Gets True Justice After Man Blinds Her For Turning Down His Marriage Proposal


Tehran, Iran (The Weekly Vice) -- Ameneh Bahrami, a 31-year-old Iranian woman has won her case. Now, true "eye for an eye" justice awaits a man who blinded her with acid after she turned down his proposal of marriage.

An Iranian judge has granted her request to return the favor.

A Tehran province criminal court has ordered Majid Movahedi (right) to be blinded in both eyes from drops of acid in accordance with his victim's wishes.

Bahrami was left blinded and disfigured after Movahedi poured a jar of acid on her face as she walked home from work in October, 2004.

The 27-year-old man began harassing Bahrami after she turned down his marriage proposals. Although his family had pressured her to marry him, she refused, stating "I will never marry him."

As she walked home, Movahedi dumped a jar of sulfuric acid over her head, blinding her immediately. He then reportedly left her as she screamed in pain.

Movahedi said he decided to attack Bahrami after she told him she had married someone else, and pleaded with him to leave her alone.

"I decided to splash acid on her face so her husband would leave her and I could have her," Movahedi told the court.

17 surgeries later, she remains horribly disfigured and blind in both eyes. Despite moving to Spain, where the operations occurred, she has remained steadfast in her pursuit of eye for an eye justice.

Now the ruling is in and she'll get her wish. In accordance with the court's ruling, Movahedi will lay before her while she drops acid into his eyes.

"He will lie in front of me drugged. I will feel my way to his eyes and then drop 20 drops of acid in each eye," Bahrami explained. "My mother will do it for me if I don't manage it - but I hope that won't be necessary. I want to execute the punishment myself because it is my issue."

Bahrami, who once worked as an electrical engineer, summed up the upcoming sentence aptly by stating.

"He made fun of me in front of the court. Now he is whimpering for mercy, asking me to leave him at least one eye. But it's too late for that."

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

For once an Iranian court makes sense! Wow, what am I saying? But knowing the humiliation on top of injury this man put this woman through makes this sentence seem well earned and quite fitting. Burn baby burn.

Natasha Gurfinkiel Is All About “Happy Endings” - Jailed After Offering Cop A ‘Happy Ending’ Following Massage


Natasha Gurfinkiel's Facebook Page (happier times)
Natasha Gurfinkiel Jail Booking Report

Delray Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Natasha M. Gurfinkiel, a 40-year-old Delray woman was arrested Wednesday after offering an undercover police officer a massage with a "happy ending."

According to police, detectives began investigating Gurfinkiel earlier this month after coming across a Craigslist ad offering massages. The investigator who called on the ad set up an appointment with Gurfinkiel when she promised he "would not be disappointed."

A week later an officer went to the business and began receiving the massage. He then reportedly inquired if the massage "encompassed any other activity," according to the arrest report.

Gurfinkiel allegedly responded that she would provide a "happy ending" for a "tip".

During the woman's arrest, officers found a bag of cocaine and seized a client list and appointment book. While none of the clients from the appointment book were arrested, a client did show up for his "massage" during the arrest.

Gurfinkiel was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on charges of practicing without a license, prostitution and cocaine possession. Bond was set at $6,250.00.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

"Does this massage encompass any other activity." Alright, now how does this statement not scream COP !?! We aren't convinced police officers should be devoting lots of time to making arrests over hand jobs, but stupidity must be arrested where it's found. It simply must.

Angela Parenteau Was Too Stoned To Drive - Asks 12-Year-Old Daughter To Drive Children To Day Care


Sun Prairie, Montana (The Weekly Vice) -- Angela Parenteau, a 32-year-old Montana mother was arrested Wednesday after asking her 12-year-old daughter to drive three younger siblings to day care because she was "on medication".

According to Great Falls police, officers were notified after Parenteau's three young children arrived at an area day care - driven there by Parenteau's 12-year-old daughter.

Investigators say, Parenteau told them she asked her daughter to take the children (aged 1 to 4) because she was sick and on medication.

The trip reportedly entailed a five mile drive from Sun Prairie into Great Falls, where the daycare was located. The incident was discovered when employees saw Parenteau's car pull up with the pre-teen as the driver.

Parenteau was cited with four counts of endangering the welfare of children and one count of allowing an unauthorized minor to operate a motor vehicle.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:


Just as a side note, Pareneau magically recovered and drove herself into town when she discovered police were chatting with her daughter about the incident. Not that we were buying the whole "too sick and medicated to drive" story anyway. Too damn LAZY to drive fits much better here we think.

Mauricio Lopez Gets A Weak Sentence - Gets Just Seven Years After Breaking More Than 30 Bones In Infant Son’s Body


El Cajon, California (The Weekly Vice) -- Mauricio Lopez, a 34-year-old Lemon Grove man charged with beating his infant son for months, pleaded guilty to felony child abuse Thursday.

Lopez was arrested in November when the 5 month old baby's mother took him to Rady Children's Hospital for an evaluation. Doctors discovered that the baby had suffered more than 30 bone fractures - including EVERY BONE in his legs, according to district attorney Chantal de Mauregne.

Lopez and the child's mother indicated that Lopez "may have caused specific bones to be broken," said Mauregne.

Investigators believe the abuse occurred over a period of several months. The boy was 5 1/2 months when his injuries came to light. He was taken into protective custody and placed in a foster home.

After pleading guilty to felony child abuse, Lopez was sentenced to seven years in prison.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Seven years? For breaking bone after bone after bone in an infant's body? Keeping in mind that a baby's bones are very pliable and difficult to break, I can't even imagine the torture this child went through - while his mother stood by. Why she hasn't been charged for neglect requires some serious explanation from the prosecutor's office.

James Tischendorf - Louisville Man Jailed After Soliciting Sex From 14 Year Old Girl, Shows Up For Sex With Loaded Guns


James Tischendorf's MySpace Page

Louisville, Kentucky (The Weekly Vice) -- James Tischendorf, a 29-year-old Louisville man was arrested Monday after trying to meet a 14-year-old girl for sex. When he showed up to meet the girl, he had two loaded guns in his possession.

According to police, Tischendorf engaged in sexually explicit chats with what he thought was a 14-year-old girl that he met through a popular online networking site. He also sent nude photos of himself to the girl, which was actually a Metro Police detective instead.

Investigators say the arrest went down at a local park after Tischendorf agreed to meet the teen to have sex.

"When they took him into custody, they found he was armed with two guns," said Metro Police Det. Phil Russell. "One was in his back pocket, so, a very dangerous predator."

Investigators confiscated the weapons, which they say were both loaded. Authorities also confiscated Tischendorf's computer, according to his wife.

"I don't know if it's because I'm his wife, but I won't believe it until someone actually tells me," said wife Samantha Tischendorf. "I want to see the proof."

Tischendorf was booked into Metro Corrections and then arraigned Tuesday on charges of attempted use of a minor in a sexual performance, attempted unlawful transaction with a minor and use of electronic means to induce a minor for sex. He is being held on bond, which his wife is working towards posting.

Kid Paints Giant Penis On Parent’s $2 Million Dollar Home After Watching Show About Google Earth


Hungerford, Berkshire, UK (The Weekly Vice) - Rory McInnes, an 18-year-old British boy decided to make his parent's brand new $2 Million dollar home stand out - the hard way.

After watching a television show about Google Earth, the boy grabbed a tin of white paint and headed up to his parent's flat-top roof to add a little artwork. Some may call it a lot of artwork.

Either way, when Rory was finished, the home displayed a 60 foot penis - painted boldly enough to appear on Google Earth. Parents Andy and Clare weren't impressed.

The decoration went unnoticed for 12 months until a helicopter pilot spotted the design and allowed passengers to take photos.

Andy was incredulous when British newspapers called to inform him that his $2 Million dollar home was beautiful, and "oh by the way, there's a 60 foot willie on your roof."

Rory was on the other side of the world in Brazil when this parents received the news. A chore awaits him, however, upon his return.

"When Rory gets home, he will be given a scrubbing brush and white spirit and he can go scrub it off," said his father.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

I'm afraid a scrub brush would be the least of his worries if he were my kid.... A toothbrush seems far more appropriate.

Penni Waters’ Plans Were Foiled - Attempts To Steal Cordless Drill Using Trick She Saw On An Episode Of ‘COPS’


Penni Waters Jail Booking Report
Previous Jail Bookings Found Here, Here, Here and Here

Zephyrhills, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Penni Waters, a 48-year-old Florida woman was arrested Tuesday after attempting to steal a cordless drill using a trick she saw on the television show 'COPS'.

According to Zephyrhills police, Waters entered a Lowe's home improvement store, picked out a cordless drill and then placed it inside a black handbag she was carrying. When she attempted to exit the store without paying for the item, security personnel stopped her at the door.

Security detectors, which normally sound an alarm when merchandise has not been purchased, did not activate.

Investigators say Waters lined the handbag with aluminum foil, which reportedly interferes with the sensors in the theft scanner apparatus. She later told police that she learned how to do it from an episode of COPS.

Waters was booked into the Pasco County Jail on charges of retail theft and possession or use of an anti-shoplifting device. She was also jailed on a warrant on an earlier arrest for possession of methamphetamine. Bond was set at $2,150.

Unsurprisingly, Waters seems to have a long history of previous charges which includes arrests for theft, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture of a controlled substance (meth) and various probation violations.

Evon Cavett Made A Bad Call - Jailed After Calling 911 To Report Her Roommate Had Taken A Beer, Brawls With Police


Evon Cavett Jail Booking Report
Previous Arrests Here, Here, Here and Here

Tampa, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Evon Marie Cavett, a 43-year-old Tampa woman was arrested early Wednesday morning after calling 911 to report her roommate had taken her beer.

According to Tampa police, officers were called out to the woman's home after receiving repeated phone calls from Cavett claiming that her roommate was stealing from her.

When police arrived, they reportedly found the unemployed Cavett drinking a 40 oz Bud Light, according to police spokesperson Janelle McGregor.

"The defendant called 911 on 3 different occasions to complain about her roommate taking her beer and to complain that she didn't call 911," stated the arrest report. "While yelling, she upset her neighbor and woke up her children. She then attempted to physically resist arrest."

Investigators say they attempted to place Cavett under arrest for misuse of the 911 emergency system, however she refused to comply with their commands.

"She then began to yell and scream profanities. She was so loud that her neighbor in another building walked outside and told her to be quiet," added the arrest report.

Cavett was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of misuse of the 911 system, obstructing an officer and disorderly conduct. She remains incarcerated pending a $1,250 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Think police were surprised by Cavett's antics? Not likely.

Prior Arrests include a grab bag of various offenses including Battery, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, theft, driving without a license, operating an unregistered vehicle and writing a bad check. All this and she doesn't think twice about calling police over a beer.

Craig Aylesworth Attempts To Burn Down Neighbor’s Trailer, Burns Down His Own Instead


Craig Aylesworth's Jail Booking Report

Blitho, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Craig Allen Aylesworth, a 51-year-old Orange County man was arrested Tuesday after attempting to set a neighbor's trailer on fire. The wind shifted, burning down his own trailer - and several cars - instead.

According to the Florida State Highway Patrol, an argument broke out between Aylesworth and and his neighbor on Amityville Drive at about 7 p.m..

Investigators say Aylesworth retaliated by tossing a Molotov cocktail on his neighbor's trailer, however the wind shifted, causing the flames to travel back to his own trailer instead.

Fire crews say the flames traveled over a fence, engulfing a travel trailer on his property in flames. The fire spread to two cars and a pickup truck in the man's yard as well.

Orange County Fire and Rescue spokesperson, Lt Anthony Rios, believes alcohol may have been a factor in Aylesworth's decision-making.

Aylesworth was booked into the Orange County Jail on six counts of 2nd-degree arson, throwing a destructive device with property damage, arson of a dwelling, arson to a vehicle and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Bond was set at $22,500.

Michele Fevola Turns Florida’s Interstate 95 Into A Highway To Hell, Causes Four Accidents During Highway Rampage


Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Michele M. Fevola, a 33-year-old West Palm Beach woman may face charges after turning Florida's 1-95 into the highway to hell.

Police say Fevola's license had just been reinstated last month, when she entered Interstate 95 Monday night. Before she was done, she was involved in three separate crashes, sending one woman to the hospital in serious condition.

Investigators say Fevola was driving south-bound in a 2002 Chevy pickup truck around 8:15 p.m. when she rear-ended a 2008 Lexus near Southwest 10th street, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Instead of stopping, Fevola continued driving.

The next accident came a stretch down the highway later when she rammed a 1984 Toyota near Atlantic Blvd. Again, Fevola refused to stop.

The most serious accident came when Fevola rear-ended a 2004 Isuzu near Sunrise Blvd. The accident caused the Isuzu driver's vehicle to roll while Fevola's vehicle was struck by a 2009 Toyota.

The Isuzu driver, 21-year-old Marisol Montellano, was transported to Broward General Medical Center in serious condition. The drivers in the other vehicles were reportedly shaken, but uninjured according to authorities.

Police say charges are pending a toxicology report to see if Favola had been drinking.

Her license was returned on Feb 20 after it had been suspended numerous times for DUI and DUI related charges. According to state records, Fevola's license was suspended in 1998 after refusing to submit to a toxicology test following a crash. She was charged with DUI in that case.

Her license was suspended again in 2001 after she was arrested for drunk driving. She was arrested later the same year for DUI which resulted in suspension of her license for 5 years.

Crash victim Marisol Montellano's condition was recently upgraded to "good condition" according to hospital spokeswoman Candice Ogden.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This accident appears on a map to have spanned several miles. Umm.... Hit and run? Leaving the scene of an accident? Hello? DUI charges could be added later!

Sigh.... I really REALLY don't get that God-forsaken state.

William Merman-Smith Gets A Bright Idea - Holds Luggage For Ransom, Demands Money For It’s Return


The Facebook Page Merman-Smith Tried To Delete (cached)

Rochester, New York (The Weekly Vice) -- "I have your luggage and I'm holding it for ransom. I want $700 in unmarked bills if you want to ever see your luggage again. Oh.....and before you get any wise ideas about calling the police, the Samsonite gorilla is here just dying to jump on your luggage if i get any grief from you."

William Merman-Smith, a 25-year-old Greece, New York Man was arrested Sunday after allegedly stealing luggage from a New York airport and then demanding money before he would return it.

Investigators say Merman-Smith took luggage from the Greater Rochester International Airport on March 15th and 16th. He then emailed one of the victims and demanded $700 for it's return.

Authorities were able to locate Merman-Smith by tracking down his i.p. address. Airport security video was also obtained, which reportedly captured the theft.

Officers obtained a warrant and paid Merman-Smith a visit, recovering a computer along with the stolen luggage. State police returned the luggage to all three victims.

Merman-Smith was booked into Monroe County Jail on charges of 2nd-degree grand larceny by extortion, 3rd-degree grand larceny and petit larceny. After pleading not guilty to the charges, he was released without bail.

What To Do In A Bad Economy? Glass Shop Owner Charged With Breaking Customer’s Windows To Create Glass Repair Orders


Sacramento, California (The Weekly Vice) -- So what do you do when you're the owner of a glass company in the middle of a recession?

1. Lower prices
2. Advertise for new business
3. Get a sling shot and begin busting out windows.

Well you know the answer, and that's exactly what police say 47-year-old Andrew Krogh Did.

Police say Krogh, who owns AA Glass and Mirror, was arrested Tuesday morning with a slingshot and ball-bearings in his possession. He was also captured while driving a white van resembling the one caught on surveillance video each time the windows of a martial arts school were repeatedly shattered.

Brian Seeley, who owns a building which houses the studio, said he's spent $12,000 over the last half-year replacing over a dozen windows which were mysteriously shattered. After the first window was broken, Krogh reportedly approached him with an offer to replace the window.

The mystery of the white van was reportedly solved when martial arts students from the school began staking out the building in hopes of catching the perp. in the act. On the third night of the stake-out, the same white van stopped and then made a U-Turn in front of the building. Both deputies and martial arts students helped secure the arrest.

Seeley also told investigators that he owns a company that sells surveillance equipment. Each time a window was shattered at the business, a white van was captured driving by. Kogh was also in on those repairs, Seeley said.

Another business, Total Beauty Experience, had a similar experience. Owner Debbie McCain told investigators that Krogh approached her about glass replacement a day after the front door of the shop was shattered late last year. She has since had two additional incidents where windows to her shop were shot out. Krogh handled the repair order each time.

As if that wasn't enough, yet another business owner, Pam Lassiter of Quality Business Machines, had the same experience. A broken window was followed up by Krogh, who was all to happy to "make her a deal" on glass repairs.

Despite the large number of incidents, Krogh currently faces just six counts of felony vandalism, according to Sheriff's Office spokesperson Sgt. Tim Curran. Krogh has denied any involvement in the crimes.
