Daniel Lee Ruined The Appetite Of Several Tennessee Grocery Store Shoppers


Kingsport, TN (The Weekly Vice) - Daniel Lee, a 22-year-old Tennessee man, was arrested Friday after he allegedly ran butt naked through a grocery store wearing nothing but a rubber mask.

According to Kingsport police, Lee walked into an IGA grocery store Friday night and then proceeded to run through the store wearing nothing but a rubber mask.

Investigators say Lee ran about the store, exposing himself to several customers. Store employees attempted to catch Lee, however they were reportedly unable to catch him.

Store employees did manage to catch a woman who was with Lee, who identified herself as his girlfriend. Police finally caught up with Lee himself in the bathroom of a nearby Hardee's restaurant.

He reportedly entered the restaurant, begging for something to wear. An employee reportedly saved everyone's eyesight and provided Lee with a pair of shorts and an orange hoodie until police arrived to arrest him.

When investigators later asked him why he would pull such a stunt, he reportedly told them he "was bored."

Lee was booked into the Kingsport jail on charges of indecent exposure.

We imagine it was tough making bail with no clothes or wallet on him.... perhaps he received a cash advance from one of those nifty payday loan services.

Jodi Barrus - Teacher - Found Innocent Of All Charges


Belmond, Iowa (The Weekly Vice) - Jodi Lynn Barrus, the 33-year-old Belmond-Klemme High School teacher who was accused of having sex with a male student has been cleared of all charges.

Barrus, who was arrested by Wright County Sheriff's deputies in March 2010 on charges of sexual exploitation of a student, has maintained her innocence since the investigation began.

"They came to my classroom and just made the assumption that I had sexual relations with a student," said Barrus. "He obviously had some type of infatuation. He thought I'd go to the prom with him and when I said 'absolutely not' I think he got very hurt and very angry and honestly the lie just got bigger and bigger."

Barrus, in a recent interview following the trial, explained that she sent text messages to the student, however those messages were part of a bulk mail that had been emailed to parents and other students.  The content of the messages usually addressed school closures and scheduled events.

She was initially confident that law enforcement would be able to obtain the content of the messages, however, it was later learned that investigators were only able to capture the time stamps of each message, not the content of them.

"It then became my word against his," said Barrus.

At trial, defense attorney Derek Johnson stressed the lack of physical evidence and the student's history of making up stories as key parts of Barrus' defense. During closing arguments, Johnson pointed out 50 inconsistent statements that the boy reportedly made to law enforcement officers, friends and witnesses.

A Wright County District Court jury was able to come to a verdict in less than an hour. NOT GUILTY.

Barrus had been a social studies teacher and coach with the school district for 11 years. She was awarded coach of the year honors in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008.

In the aftermath of the trial, Mrs. Barrus and her family are struggling with a ruined reputation that often comes with high profile cases that are built on fabricated allegations.

She and her family are painfully aware that although she was declared innocent at trial, there will always be people who believe she is guilty and simply "got away with it."

To make matters worse, the cost of her defense has exceeded $30,000.

She plans to stay in Belmond and has stated that she would like to be retained as a teacher with the district.

Thomas And Kristian Were Grooming A Toking Toddler


Middletown, Connecticut (The Weekly Vice) - Thomas Way, 22, and Kristian Augeri, 23, have been jailed after police discovered a video recording that showed the couple's 3-year-old child inhaling from a marijuana pipe.

According to Middletown police, officers executed a search warrant of the couple's home after a witness reported the couple had taken photos of their child smoking from a pot pipe and that the child knew how to crush pills and roll up a dollar bill.

Investigators say that, while searching the couple's home, they discovered a video camera with a recording that confirmed their suspicions.

The video reportedly showed the couple's child attempting to light a glass smoking pipe. Way could be seen in the video laying next to the boy. At one point, Way reportedly told the child he was getting spit all over the pipe.

He then took the pipe away, wiped it off and handed it back to the child, say police.

While investigators do not believe the boy succeeded in lighting the pipe, the video did seem to show the child inhaling and then coughing afterward.

"He wasn't smoking anything. The police were misinformed," said the child's aunt, who is now reportedly watching the child in his parent's absence.

Way and Augeri now face multiple charges including risk of injury to a minor and use of drug paraphernalia. They are scheduled to appear in court April 15th.

The Weekly Vice Opinion
:

So lets see if we have this straight... A couple is shoving a marijuana pipe in the mouth of a toddler - yet the only thing the kid's aunt can think to complain about is that the child didn't succeed in lighting the pipe and smoking it.

And if that don't grab you.... this dumblefuck aunt has now been given temporary custody of the child? She has my vote of confidence.... how about you?

Xiao Wei Survives After Gang Members Plunge Knife Into His Skull


Mishazi, Jilin province, China (The Weekly Vice) - Xiao Wei, a 16-year-old China man, survived an attack by a local gang last week after refusing to load unauthorized software onto the computers of the Internet cafe where he worked.

According to Chinese media, the gang asked Wei to load illegal software onto the store’s computers in an attempt to beat the teenager’s record high score on the video game Counter Strike. The gang had accused him of cheating.

When Wei refused, a fight ensued and Wei had a kitchen knife plunged through his left temple.

Doctors at the 2nd Affiliated Hospital at Jilin University were stunned when Wei entered the facility with the help of friends who were holding him up. Doctors initially thought it was a student prank until the teenager collapsed.

"His face was covered in blood, but he was still conscious,” said Prof Yan Shijun, the hospital’s deputy director of neurosurgery.

Surgeons operated on him for two hours to remove the blade. X-rays and CAT scans confirmed the blade had not hit any main arteries or nerves.

Police are examining security CCTV of the attack while doctors say the teenager is likely to make a full and miraculous recovery.

Investigators interviewed White who told them he sometimes placed his hand over the boy's mouth to quiet him. He reportedly added that he used his thumb and forefinger to pinch the child's "gurgle spot" to stop him from crying.

After receiving treatment at Cardinal Glennon Hospital, the child was taken into protective custody by Illinois DCF.

On Tuesday, March 23rd, White pleaded guilty to abuse charges - admitting he had broken his son's arm and leg.

The child's mother, Bethany Mendenhall, 20, was also taken into custody when authorities determined she "allowed her son to be placed in the immediate care and supervision" of White, while knowing he had repeatedly injured the child.

White was booked into the White County Jail on two felony counts of aggravated battery of a child. Sentencing in his case has been set for April 30.

Mendenhall was booked on a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment. She is free on a $300 bond pending an April 9th hearing on her case.

Tampa, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Shanise McCray, 21, Tabitha Barnes, 19, and Antonio Miller, 36, were jailed after they allegedly attempted to sell fake tickets for a non-existent rap concert.

According to Tampa police, the suspects sold tickets to a concert that they said would be scheduled at Club Nouveau, a Tampa area night club.

Performances were purported to include Trick Daddy, Yung Joc, and Trey Songz. Tickets were sold to customers for $10-$15 each for general admission and $45 or more for VIP.

Questions were raised after a close look at the tickets revealed numerous and obvious misspellings and errors. Customers learned they had been scammed when they called the club and were told no such concert was scheduled to take place.

Investigators say the trio's activities were halted after an undercover officer bought $300 worth of tickets from them. Interviews with the women revealed Miller was the "brain child" behind the operation. Each had 30-40 fraudulent tickets in their possession when they were arrested.

Barnes was booked into jail and charged with organized fraud and grand theft. She was released after posting $4,000 bond.

McCray was booked into jail and charged with organized fraud, grand theft, and possession of marijuana. She was released on $4,500 bail.

Miller was booked into Hillsborough County Jail and charged with organized fraud, grand theft, contempt of court for non-payment of child support, marijuana possession, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He remains jailed without bond.
