Rebecca Barrera - Charged With Leaving Young Children In Rowdy Parking Lot To Go Drinking Inside Bar


Mesa, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - Rebecca Barrera, a 27-year-old Arizona woman, was arrested Sunday after she allegedly left two kids sleeping in a car outside a bar while she drank inside.

According to police, an off-duty officer assigned to a club because of its frequent brawls, found two children, ages six and eight, sleeping in an unoccupied car around 1 a.m..

The officer also found several drunk people surrounding the car along with a set of car keys that had been left in the vehicle's front seat.

The officer called on-duty police who were initially unable to locate the children's parents. Officers went into the club and asked the DJ to make an announcement regarding the abandoned children. That is when Barrera identified herself as a "friend" of the children's mother and offered to go back into the bar and find the mother.

After ten minutes of waiting, the officers went into the bar to find the children's mother. Instead, they found Barrera hiding inside the women's restroom.

Barrera eventually admitted to being the children's mother and told officers that she had driven several places with the children while intoxicated. A breath test was administered which showed Barrera's BAC to be almost twice the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle.

She was booked into jail on a charge of child abuse. Bail in her case was set at $5,000.

Weston Kruger Really Wanted That Porn Magazine - Charged With Murder After Killing Store Owner Over Nudie Magazine


Santa Ana, California (The Weekly Vice) - Weston Kruger, a 31-year-old California man, was arrested for allegedly killing a liquor store owner who tried to stop him from stealing a porn magazine.

According to the Newport Beach Police Department, Kruger allegedly stole an adult magazine from a liquor store in July of 2007 by hiding it underneath his shirt.

The store owner, Hao Huynh, saw the magazine and demanded it back. Kruger walked out of the store, refusing to give up the magazine and Huynh followed him outside.

The 275 pound Kruger then reportedly shoved the 100 pound Huynh with such force that his head cracked when it hit the ground. Huynh died the following day from a fractured skull and massive bleeding in the brain.

Investigators say the incident was captured on video surveillance and an uninvolved witness in the parking lot identified Kruger.

Newport Beach police later found the stolen magazine during a search of Krueger's apartment.

Kruger’s trial started Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court and if convicted, Kruger could be sentenced to life in state prison without the possibility of parole.

At the time of Kruger’s arrest, he was free on bail pending trial for allegedly attacking his live-in girlfriend in 2006. He was also charged with pretending to be a police officer and pointing a gun at a man in April of 2007.

Kruger has been charged with one felony count of special circumstances murder in the commission of a robbery.

Iranian Officials Ban Suntans - Threaten To Imprison Women Who Ignore Policy


Tehran, Iran (The Weekly Vice) – Iranian officials have announced that women who are caught with suntans may be arrested and imprisoned.

According to Tehran's police chief, Brig Hossein Sajedinia, a national crackdown on opposition sympathizers would also be extended to women who have been deemed to be violating the spirit of Islamic laws.

Iran has now warned suntanned women and girls who looked like "walking mannequins" with imprisonment as part of a new drive to enforce the Islamic dress code.

National law stipulates that women are required to wear headscarves and shape shrouding cloaks, however many women wear fashions that barely adhere to the regulations.

The announcement came just days after cleric Ayatollah Kazim Sadighi announced that promiscuously dressed women were the likely cause of deadly earthquakes, such as the devastating earthquake in Haiti earlier this year.

Sajedinia says they are not going to tolerate the situation and will first warn those found in this manner. Arrests will follow if the senseless tanning persists.

Philip Conran - Charged With Posting Fake Orgy Ad On Craigsist After Dispute With “Bored Soccer Mom” Neighbor


West Hartford, Connecticut (The Weekly Vice) - Philip J. Conran, a 42-year-old Connecticut man, made his first court appearance last week after he allegedly posted an ad for an orgy in his neighbor's name.

According to West Hartford police, a Craigslist ad was posted inviting men to come to the home of Conran's neighbor to fulfill her desire to "please as many" as she can before going to work.

Apparently, enough people showed up that Monday morning that the victim's brother-in-law stood guard and took down license plates. A few men even came to the door.

According to police, one potential orgy-attendee showed up at the wrong house and was arrested after he groped a teenage girl.

Police linked the posting to Conran through his IP address and seized his computer to examine it for other crimes he may have committed through Craigslist posts.

Conran reportedly targeted his neighbor, labeling her as a "bored soccer mom," in retaliation over a personal dispute.

Conran was booked in the West Hartford County Jail on charges of reckless endangerment, harassment, criminal trespass and risk of injury to a minor. Conran was released on a $75,000 bond.

Nazareth then mixed his own tears with his female friend's with a bottle of wine, then spat in the bottle and added a drop of beer. He "blessed the house" with the tainted wine, then made his children drink a small glass as he drank some with the woman.

The boy told police that his father forced him to smoke marijuana approximately 10 times, and that he was up until 4:00 in the morning. He also stated that he felt sick when he returned to school the next Monday.

Willie Martin Dated The Whole Family - Accused Of Impregnating Girlfriend’s Underage Daughter


Daytona Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Willie Martin, a 50-year-old Florida man, was arrested Friday for allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old girl and getting her pregnant while the girl's mother thought it was a joke.

According to the Daytona Police Department, Martin had been having sex with the girl since she was 12. The now 14-year-old girl gave birth to a boy in June 2009. The teen told Children's Advocacy Center counselors that Martin began molesting her when she was 12 and later progressed to intercourse.

Investigators say, a friend of the victim’s mother told her she saw Martin kiss the victim on the mouth. She said the girl's mother treated the whole thing as a joke. Investigators were then called about the sexual abuse last May when the same friend informed authorities of the victim's pregnancy.

When investigators interviewed the victim, she was already eight months pregnant. She was taken from her mother's house just days before the baby's birth.

When the victim was asked if she knew why she was being taken out of the home, the girl replied, "Because her (my mother's) boyfriend raped me.”

Martin had dated the victim's mother off and on for several years and had lived with the girl and her mother for 12 years.

Martin was booked into the Volusia County Branch jail on charges of unlawful sexual activity with a certain minor and lewd and lascivious molestation of a person 12 to 16 years of age, both first-degree felonies. He is being held without bail.

Azoulas Yurashunas - Cleared Of All Charges


Charges Dropped By Prosecutors

Eugene, OR (The Weekly Vice) - Azoulas David Yurashunas, a 23-year-old Eugene man who was accused of kidnapping a young child during a boy scout event has been cleared of all charges.

According to the Eugene Police Department, Officer Steven Chambers was working at Bethesda Lutheran Church during a boyscout event when he heard a mother calling out for her child. He then witnessed what he thought was a man attempting to lure a 2-year-old boy away.

The woman reportedly snatched the child away from Yurashunas as he hopped into an automobile and left the scene. Officers later stopped Yurashunas and booked him into jail on kidnapping charges.

Yurashunas disputed the charge from the onset, telling investigators that he was attempting to help the child who had apparently hit his head on a sign and appeared lost.

Reports later confirm that the child was indeed injured as Yurashunas stated and a mother calling out for her child would seem to substantiate Yurashuna's contention that the boy indeed became separated from his mother for some period of time.

Although a grand jury returned an indictment against Yurashunas, it stated that the circumstances of the incident did not rise above a reasonable doubt. The grand jury's doubts about the case was followed up with a dismissal of all charges from the Lane County District Attorney's office on Thursday

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Although investigators in this case insist they acted appropriately in this case -We'd beg to differ.

While it may be true that the Eugene Police department has a lower threshold of reasonable doubt to meet than the D.A.'s office has, a proper and thorough investigation would have likely revealed that this case wasn't going anywhere.

Even worse - perhaps that investigation was thorough and the department decided it was going to run with the charges despite the shaky circumstance they were founded on.

The fact that the "suspect's" statements coincided with his actions should have been the first clue that perhaps he was indeed attempting to help this child just as he stated. It's a shame the Eugene Police Department left these "coincidences" out of their press release and report.

Our sources tell us that Yurashunas was a scout himself who was invited out to the event. Before leaving that event, Yurashunas took the opportunity to do what any good scout should do. Help a fellow citizen in need.

We truly hope the Eugene Police Department and it's "lower threshold of reasonable doubt" argument will remember this lesson.

When you get it wrong and ignore the obvious - the Internet can be a real bite in the ass to a police department's reputation. Perhaps your department should raise that bar just a bit, eh?

Thomas Hovis Found A “Crappy” Hiding Spot


Albion, IN (The Weekly Vice) - Thomas Hovis Jr., a 52-year-old Albion man, was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly hid from police in a pile of manure.

According to the Noble County Sheriff's Department, deputies and a SWAT team went to Hovis' girlfriend's residence upon information that a meth lab existed on the premises.

When deputies arrived at the residence, Hovis ran from the home to a small building where he appeared to be hiding. After attempts to evacuate Hovis from the building had failed, police entered and found him underneath the floor standing neck-deep in a manure pit.

Once Hovis was removed from the pit, he reportedly became combative, forcing deputies to subdue him with a Taser.

During a search of Hovis' property, investigators seized three different meth labs, two grams of methamphetamine, 18 marijuana plants, three handguns and an assault rifle.

Hovis was treated on the scene for hypothermia before being tranferred to Parkview Noble Hospital for further care. He was then booked into the Steuben County jail where he remains in custody on drug related charges.

McGee, KY (The Weekly Vice) - Jackson County High School students, Corinne Schwab and Ashley Sams, both 18, and an unnamed 17-year-old girl were jailed Tuesday after they allegedly tried to push a classmate off of a cliff because she is a lesbian.

According to Kentucky State Police, the three girls were supposedly taking the victim to a job interview when they instead took her to Flat Lick Falls against her will. The foursome had reportedly been best friends since the sixth grade.

Investigators say the girls then beat the teen because of her sexual orientation, then attempted to push her over a cliff, which would have resulted in her death.

The victim was able to escape by swinging a stick at the girls before fleeing the area to search for help. The girls caught up with her and tried to force her back into the car, but let her go on the promise she would not tell anyone what had happened.

The victim was able to record a video of the attack on her cell phone, which reportedly backs up the girl's claim that the attack was based on her sexual orientation.

The teens who are charged say the attack was meant to be a prank, however detectives allege the evidence does not support that claim.

Schwab and Sams were booked into the Jackson County Jail and charged with kidnapping and criminal attempt to commit murder. They were both released on bond until their court dates.

The 17-year-old juvenile remains jailed and is due in court Thursday.

This incident happened on a National Day of Silence for those who are gay.
