A Washington woman was charged Monday with attempted murder, suspected of trying to use a samurai sword on a boyfriend she thought was being unfaithful.
Police say the woman, Emily Javier, 30, bought the sword and had been plotting to kill the boyfriend, Alex Lovell, for over a week after reportedly finding hair (not her own) in the shower and discovering the popular dating app “Tinder” on his phone, Fox 12 reported, citing a probable cause affidavit.
According to police, Lovell came home Friday evening and ignored Javier, which led her to stab him after he fell asleep.
Javier called 911 when she thought Lovell was dead, and as police arrived around 2 a.m., she was seen covered in blood and reportedly called out: “I just stabbed him. You guys need to help him,” The Columbian newspaper reported, citing court records and the affidavit.
Lovell was reportedly found in the bedroom with multiple stab wounds, and blood was spattered on the walls. He remains in critical condition, Fox 12 reported.

Police seized a sword and some knives from the home.
Javier’s bail was set at $350,000; she is to be arraigned on March 13.

Teen taking driving test plows into exam station before making it to road
POSTED 4:22 PM, MARCH 22, 2018, BY TRIBUNE MEDIA WIRE


BUFFALO, Minn. – A teenager taking her driver’s test crashed through the driver’s examination station before she even got on the road.
The Star Tribune reported that the 17-year-old crashed a 2014 Chevy Equinox into the building Wednesday afternoon in Buffalo, Minnesota.

(Photo: Buffalo Police Department)
The driver was not hurt, but a 60-year-old woman working as the license examiner sustained non-critical injuries and the vehicle was significantly damaged.
It happened after the teenager put the Equinox in drive instead of reverse at the start of the test, according to the paper.
“This led to the vehicle lurching forward when she accelerated, causing the vehicle to move forward and over the curb, striking the building housing the exam station office,” according to police, who noted that the accident caused “significant damage to the vehicle and building.”
Nobody was inside the office during the crash. The teen driver will not be charged.

My brother used to work at Baggett Pharmacy in South OKC (long since closed). It was a small apothecary shop in front of McInness (sp?) Clinic. One day a little old lady drove right through the front window of the pharmacy, very similar to the above picture. Fortunately, there was no one sitting in the row of chairs in front of the window, or they would have been seriously injured. Her car was high-centered on the window and her back tires were spinning. She walks up to my brother and says, "Am I late for my appointment?" His response was classic, "No ma'am, you're just in time."

Iranian TV censors Italian football badge

The Capitoline Wolf suckling Romulus and Remus proves too much for Iranian censors

Eagle-eyed viewers have noticed that Iranian state television censored the logo of an Italian football club during its coverage of UEFA Champions League football.

While AS Roma were being roundly beaten by FC Barcelona in the competition's quarter-finals last night, people watching Iran TV's third channel noticed that producers had blurred out a female wolf's teats on the club badge.

The team from the Italian capital's logo is the image from ancient myth of Rome's twin founders Romulus and Remus being suckled by the Capitoline Wolf.

However, that appeared to be too much for bosses at Iran's Voice and Vision organisation, and the club's badge appeared on screen with the nipples clearly blurred.

The move was greeted with taunts and mockery on social media.

"In 3,000 years, Remus and Romulus were only deprived of their mother's milk, but Iran's state broadcaster deprived them of even a wolf's milk," Denmark-based Iranian sports journalists Mehdi Rostampour wrote on his Telegram channel.

"People could have been provoked by the wolf's breasts!" said one Twitter user, while another mocked the producers' prudishness by claiming "We could have touched ourselves".

However, one user expressed their lack of surprise: "They're so meticulous."

So 2 Goats Were Stuck On A Beam Under A Bridge ...

1523150748448.png

See that little brown critter and that little white critter? They're goats stuck on a bridge in western Pennsylvania. The white goat is facing in the wrong direction to walk off the beam, about 100 feet high, and return to solid ground.
Todd Tilson/PA Turnpike Commission


From time to time, readers ask us, "How did your blog get its name?"

It's a longish story (here is the full explanation). In a nutshell, goats are a useful animal in the lower-income countries we cover. They can contribute to the income and the nutrition of a family.

We've also learned from talking to goat specialists that goats are curious and independent animals — true to the spirit of our blog, if we might humblebrag.

And because goats are in our DNA, we figure we have license to cover interesting stories about goats.

So when NPR listener Jason E. Farabaugh sent us a Facebook posting about two goats stuck on a beam under a Pennsylvania Turnpike bridge in rural western Pennsylvania, we jumped to it.

No one knows why the goats climbed up on the pedestal of a Mahoning River bridge and set out along a narrow beam.

They're not talking. But goats do love to climb and explore, notes goat specialist Susan Schoenian of the University of Maryland College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. So these two goats, who are probably pals (because goats are social animals), escaped from the nearby yard where they lived and went on an adventure.

They deftly walked along the beam with their very small feet. They proceeded about 200 feet. But it turns out they couldn't just keep on walking ahead — there was an obstacle that kept them from moving forward. So they had to turn around and head back the way they came.

The brown goat managed the trick. "He walked out to a concrete pier and somehow got himself turned around," says Todd Tilson, operations manager in the maintenance department of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The white goat did not manage to turn around.

That's why, in the photo, you'll see the two goats facing each other.

Tilson reports that the brown goat "kept hitting the white one with its head" to make it walk backward. "It would take one step, two steps back, then stop," he says.

And really, can you blame it? Would you want to walk backward on a beam that is about 8 inches wide and 100 feet above the ground?

Yeah, me neither.

Woman blames 'windy day' for cocaine in purse

Sunday, April 8th 2018, 6:00 am CDTSunday, April 8th 2018, 6:00 am CDT
By Kali O'Rourke

The woman was arrested on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. (Source: Raycom Media)
FORT PIERCE, FL (RNN) – When Florida police made a traffic stop, the driver told them she didn’t know anything about the cocaine they found in her purse and that “it must have flown through the window.”
Kennecia Posey, 26, was one of two passengers in a car that was swerving in the roadway when it was stopped by Fort Pierce police March 21, according to WPLG.
When officers approached the vehicle, they smelled marijuana, the police report states.
During a search of the car, they found cocaine and marijuana in separate bags inside a purse Posey had on her lap.
Posey admitted the marijuana was hers but denied having cocaine.
"I don't know anything about any cocaine. It's a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse,” said Posey, according to the police report.
Posey was arrested and taken to the county jail, where she was booked on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession.
She was later released on bond.

Arizona mom arrested after toddler ate THC-laced mac and cheese, cops say
By Nicole Darrah | Fox News


Alaina Marie Limpert, 25, was charged with child abuse after police say her young daughter ate THC-laced macaroni and cheese. (Maricopa County Sheriff's Office)

An Arizona mother was arrested Thursday after police said her young daughter ate THC-laced macaroni and cheese.


Alaina Marie Limpert, 25, allegedly laughed when she realized her daughter, who is less than two years old, was experiencing the side effects of THC, a chemical found in marijuana, as she ate the meal with her father, the Tempe Police Department said.

"During that time neither parent took the child to immediate emergency care," the police report stated.

After laughing, Limpert "proceeded to place [the child] into their backyard pool to use the cold water to 'shock' her," according to investigators.

Three children living inside the home were removed from custody after the Arizona Department of Child Safety was notified of the incident.

Limpert, according to police, "admitted to making the mac and cheese with THC for her husband, but did not know her daughter ingested it."

Law enforcement officials found two marijuana grow tents in the garage, "numerous" glass bongs and pipes, hash oil, mushrooms and within the house's refrigerator discovered "three large tubs of THC butter."

Limpert was charged with one count of child abuse and is scheduled to appear in court April 19.

Woman arrested for beheading boyfriend asks cops to ‘let me get my heads’

Roena Cheryl MillsMercer County Jail


A West Virginia woman was arrested for beheading her boyfriend before telling cops, “You have to take me back and let me get my heads,” as they drove her away from the bloody scene, authorities said.
A judge in Mercer County said further assessment is needed to evaluate the mental competency of Roena Cheryl Mills, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Bo Allen White, WVNS reported.
Mills, according to court documents obtained by the station, was found covered in blood while wearing a glove on her left hand when deputies responded on April 1 to a home on Eden Valley Road in Lerona.
Using a fake name, Mills, 41, told responding deputies she was cut and left bloodied after being thrown through a glass door. She then got combative with officers and was placed under arrest. Once inside a deputy’s cruiser, Mills reportedly said: “You have to take me back and let me get my heads.”
Later that day, cops were tipped off to the decapitated body of a man found on another block in town. A different, unidentified part of his body was also found where Mills was arrested, WVNS reports.
The killing, according to the criminal complaint, was a “decapitation homicide,” Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney George Sitler said.
“That’s how it appears,” Sitler told West Virginia MetroNews.
A court-ordered mental status evaluation will determine if Mills can face trial in White’s brutal death. The case will then be presented to a grand jury in June. If 12 of 16 grand jurors find probable cause in the alleged killing, Mills will be indicted either on a first- or second-degree murder charge, according to the prosecutor.
“Even though she’s only been initially charged with second-degree murder because there was some initial doubt about premeditation, [the] grand jury could certainly indict her for first-degree murder,” Sitler told the station.
Mills, of Rural Retreat, Virginia, remained in custody at the Southern Regional Jail in Raleigh on $210,000 cash-only bail as of Monday, jail records show.
While in custody at the jail, Mills — who was dating White, according to his father — had been talking about killing someone, employees told WVNS.
Deputies were called to the second home after its owners saw someone suspicious in their driveway, WVNews reports. A glove matching one that Mills was wearing at the time was found earlier at White’s home, according to the station.
