A shocking incident in Florida on Monday. According to the South Florida police…they arrested a 52-year-old Florida man on a charge of attempted murder after he allegedly set his former girlfriend on fire at gas station in Boynton Beach, Fla. on Monday morning. The victim — a 34-year-old woman — was taken to a hospital with burns to her face and body, according to the Sun-Sentinel report.
We just hope this guy could see the irony here. His massive passion not to harm any living creature . . . led to him harming two much bigger and potentially more litigious living creatures. Last Thursday, 23-year-old Zachary Paul Thornhill of Friendswood, Texas was at home with his mom and stepdad. They spotted a COCKROACH on the floor and told Zachary to KILL IT. He said absolutely not. His refusal to step on the cockroach led to an argument, which got heated . . . and then got physical. Zachary ended up KICKING his stepfather and throwing things at him, then hitting his mother across the back. He also broke a window. He was arrested for two counts of assault . . . all because he wouldn’t commit one count of justified homicide on a cockroach.
A homeless man high on drugs and drunk on Four Loko growled and tried to bite off a police officer’s hand after he was arrested for disturbing customers in a Miami fast food restaurant. The incident comes just two weeks after Rudy Eugene chewed the face off a homeless man in Miami. The frenzied 18-minute attack only ended when police shot Eugene dead. In this new case, Brandon De Leon, 21, repeatedly banged his head against the patrol car’s Plexiglas and yelled, ‘I’m going to eat you.’ Both De Leon and Eugene are believed to have been under the influence of a potent drug, known as bath salts.
De Leon tried to bite a police officer, growled and repeatedly smashed his head against the patrol car and his cell wall after he was arrested for getting into a fight with Brian Yerdon. Yerdon, 33, right, was also arrested by North Miami Police on Saturday The shocking crimes have led to a safety warning issued to local police officers when they deal with Miami’s homeless population. North Miami Beach police spotted De Leon having an argument with another man outside a Boston Market restaurant on Saturday. According to an arrest report, the men’s fight blocked the restaurant entrance so no-one could come in or leave. Officers arrested De Leon and Brian Yerdon, 33, for disorderly conduct.
On Monday night, 56-year-old Darryl Harris of Augusta, Georgia confronted his 61-year-old roommate, Crawford Jackson . . . over his, quote, “STINKY FEET.” Darryl said Crawford’s feet smelled horrible. Crawford responded by . . . grabbing a knife and STABBING Darryl. He stabbed Darryl three times in the stomach and slashed him across the finger. Fortunately the stab wounds to the stomach weren’t very deep . . . in fact, the cut across the finger was the worst of Darryl’s injuries. Crawford was arrested for aggravated assault.
OFF THE HOOK: JOHN EDWARDS is officially off the hook: The Department of Justice has dropped all five remaining corruption charges against him. Edwards went on trial on SIX charges of illegally using campaign contributions to cover up his extramarital affair and the baby girl that resulted from it. The jury acquitted him on one count, but deadlocked on the other five, forcing a mistrial. The assistant attorney general said, quote, “We knew that this case . . . like all campaign finance cases . . . would be challenging. “But it is our duty to bring hard cases when we believe that the facts and the law support charging a candidate for high office with a crime.” Edwards’ attorneys issued a statement saying, quote, “We are very glad that, after living under this cloud for over three years, John and his family can have their lives back and enjoy the peace they deserve.” One cloud still hangs over them, though. John’s former side-action RIELLE HUNTER has written a tell-all book called “What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me”. And her media tour is just about to begin.
ON THE HOOK: FLOYD MAYWEATHER didn’t whine hard enough to get himself moved from jail to house arrest. Yesterday, the judge said he has to serve the remainder of his 90-day sentence behind bars. The judge knocked down just about every complaint Floyd expressed. He said that if Floyd’s dehydrated it’s his own fault because, quote, “water is made available to [him] twenty-four hours a day.” And if he’s not getting enough calories, it’s because he, quote, “chooses not to eat the food provided.” As for not being able to TRAIN properly, the judge said, quote, “While the physical training areas and times provided to [him] may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses.”
Two tubby tourists were left helplessly trapped after their weighty load proved too much for a pedicab — tipping it over backward in New York. The man and woman, both thought to be around 60, flipped over on busy Restaurant Row in Hell’s Kitchen, a witness said.
An FDNY spokesman said emergency crews took one person to Roosevelt Hospital after the Sunday night spill. Marc Chaykin, a Florida tourist who was dining with his son at the nearby Tramonti Ristorante, said, “I’ve seen rickshaws all over. You never think that one would tip backwards.” There is no official weight limit for pedicab passengers, but one driver admits he usually bypasses larger customers. “When they’re too big, I don’t take them,” 23-year-old Gabarsinkh Masuri said. “I don’t kill myself.”
