Mom Apologizes After Accidentally Sending Son to Elementary School in Obscene Shirt

What would you do if you accidentally sent your 10-year-old son to school in a less-than-appropriate McDonald’s t-shirt? If you’re Texas mom Shelly McCullar, you own up to the mistake in a hilarious Facebook post that quickly went viral. Her son’s shirt might have looked like the famous Mickey D’s golden arches, but upon closer inspection, it’s clear that they are actually a woman’s legs spread open to look like the famous M logo. Just to top off the inappropriate sandwich, the shirt also includes the famous “I’m lovin’ it” slogan. It’s an honest mistake but that doesn’t make it any less funny.

In that post, McCullar wrote that the shirt came in a box of hand-me-downs from a friend. McCullar insisted that she hadn’t had time to properly go through the box of clothes before giving them to her son. In fact, most of the teachers at his elementary school didn’t notice either.
Still, McCullar did vow to be more vigilant in the future:

“Once again, my sincere apologies to the teachers and staff at Travis Elementary. I promise from now on to monitor what my kids are wearing! I had no idea Anthony wore this to school!!,” she wrote in the post. “Just to clarify, I would never let my kid wear something like this. A friend had given me some hand-me-down clothes for Anthony. I haven’t had the chance to completely go through them. I will tonight though.”
While this seems like a hard mistake to make, parents are busy and no one would assume that a box of clothes for kids would include a shirt like that. Fortunately, the already embarrassed McCullar didn’t face a lot of the vitriol that unsuspecting parents usually deal with when they make public mistakes with their kids. The post has been shared more than 100,000 times and most of the people commenting seem to find the whole ordeal hilarious, and it’s hard not to.

Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis was arrested at an airport and accused of making an ill-timed joke


As Trevor Davis learned, it's never a good idea to make jokes about bombs at the airport.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis may have learned the hard way that airport security is not a place to make jokes.
Davis was arrested after he was accused of making a joke while checking in with Hawaiian Airlines at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Here's how the situation went down, according to public information officer Rob Pedregon. Per ESPN:
"Yesterday, Trevor Davis checked in at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter and was asked the usual questions about whether he was carrying any aerosol cans, knives, weapons or explosives," Pedregon said. "Davis turned to his female companion and asked if she remembered to pack the explosives. He was then taken into custody and booked."

Davis was taken into custody and eventually released, pending a court date on May 3. His case has since been referred to the Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department.
Davis was a fifth-round draft pick for the Packers in 2016 and served as the team's primary return man last season. In a statement, the Packers said they were aware of the situation and still in the process of gathering information before making further comment.

Woman arrested for attacking two people after dog eats her marijuana and owner refuses to pay

The IndependentApril 11, 2018




A woman has been accused of attacking two people after a dog ate her marijuana, US police say.
Desarae Smith flew into a rage with two bystanders after the pet-owner refused to pay for the drugs, according to a report by officers in Springfield, Ohio.
The 20-year-old punched, kicked and pulled the hair of her victims, only stopping when police pulled her away, the report says.
She was arrested on two counts of assault on Monday.
Trouble started when Smith refused to leave the dog-owner’s home following the canine-based disagreement, the Springfield News-Sun reports. She fell asleep on the sofa where officers, responding to a call, found her.
“(The pet-owner) advised she got into a verbal argument with Desarae Smith over marijuana,” the police report says. “She stated she lives with 22 dogs and one of them ate Ms Smith’s marijuana.”
Officers found Smith sleeping, woke her and asked her to go home, it is said.
“Ms Smith began screaming about the money owed her for the marijuana and refused to leave,” the report continues. “Officers advised Ms Smith to calm down and asked her to leave the home.”
Smith began to gather her belongings and stormed out of the house cursing and screaming, the report continues. It was there she allegedly confronted two women stood outside – assaulting both of them in front of officers.
“Ms Smith dropped her items and charged (at one woman),” the report says. “She grabbed (her) hair and began punching and kicking her in the head and body.”
She then turned on the second bystander, the report says.
“Ms Smith then grabbed(her) and began punching and kicking her in the head and body,” the report says.
Officers said they separated the pair and arrested Smith. The women who were allegedly attacked did not have visible signs of injuries, the report says, and refused medical treatment.
Smith’s bond was set at $1,000 for each assault charge, according to jail records. She was also booked in with criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct charges, according to the records with bonds set at $250 each.

Woman's Obituary Helps Agents Catch Her Son, Who Escaped From Prison in 1981
Inside Edition • Inside Edition Staff • Fri, Apr 13 11:53 AM EDT
A fugitive who had managed to remain free for decades after busting out of an Oklahoma prison in 1981 has been recaptured.
While that's enough for a headline on its own, the way authorities said they finally rooted him out makes the story even more remarkable.
The U.S. Marshals Service said Thursday that 58-year-old Stephen Michael Paris was taken into custody thanks, in part, to his mother's obituary.
The agency says investigators tracked him down in Texas after a newspaper obituary for his mother listed a son in Houston named Stephen Michael Chavez, according to The Associated Press.
Nearly 40 years after he escaped from the Jess Dunn Correctional Center in Muskogee, Okla., while serving a nine-year drug-related sentence, Paris was arrested at a Houston office.
Fingerprints confirmed his identity, The AP reported.

Not sure whats worse the fact he showed up in the obituary or the fact they actually arrested a guy who apparently has been living on the straight and narrow in Texas for almost 40 years.

Doesn't sound like the guy is a threat to society any longer and from the sound of the original charges doesn't sound like he was much of a threat back then. Victim of insane Oklahoma drug laws in the 80's.

Dear governor Fallin give us tax payers a break and just pardon this guy. He doesn't appear to be worth spending my tax money on.

Pet raccoon, stoned off of too much weed, brought to Indianapolis firehouse. Confusion ensues.

Jordan Fischer
5:51 PM, Apr 16, 2018




INDIANAPOLIS -- Firefighters at Wayne Township Station 82 opened the door early Friday morning to a one-of-a-kind request for help: A frantic woman, distressed because her pet raccoon was stoned off of too much weed.
The raccoon, according to Wayne Township Fire Dept. PIO Capt. Michael Pruitt, had been exposed to "too much" of someone else’s marijuana, and its owners were worried it was overdosing. Not knowing what to do, they brought it to Station 82.
“The raccoon was very lethargic,” Pruitt said. “She started explaining what had happened. There wasn’t really much we could do, it was just the sort of thing that was going to take time.”
Recordings of Southwest District’s radio chatter show the raccoon had IMPD officers baffled as well -- at first, simply over what substance the raccoon was, in fact, high on.
“Apparently they have a pet raccoon that got into their meth,” an unidentified officer is logged saying at 3:57 a.m.

A minute later, dispatchers try to clarify.
“Sir, Speedway doesn’t have anything, but fire did call across the hall and say that it was a raccoon that overdosed on somebody’s heroin.”
Thirty seconds later, a second Southwest District officer radios in that he is sitting at a firehouse – and sees no sign of a raccoon in distress:
Ofc. 1: “I’m sitting at one of the firehouses. No pet raccoons are overdosing here.”
Ofc. 2: “Well if they show up, you Narcan him.”
Ofc. 1: “Way too weird. I’m leaving.
Ofc. 2: “10-4”
Ultimately, Pruitt said, the raccoon’s owners took the animal home to sleep off its high.
“We hope that everything worked out with the raccoon,” Pruitt said. “We’d be sad to hear that it didn’t.”

A married couple in Florida, Tito and Amanda Watts, were arrested a few days ago for selling “golden tickets to heaven” to hundreds of people.
They sold the tickets on the street for $99.99 per ticket, told buyers the tickets were made from solid gold, and that each ticket reserved the buyer a spot in heaven — simply present the ticket at the pearly gates and you’re in.
Tito Watts said in his police statement: "I don’t care what the police say. The tickets are solid gold… And it was Jesus who give them to me behind the KFC and said to sell them so I could get me some money to go to outer space. I met an alien named Stevie who said if I got the cash together he’d take me and my wife on his flying saucer to his planet that’s made entirely of drugs. You should arrest Jesus because he’s the one that gave me the golden tickets and said to sell them. I’m willing to wear a wire and set Jesus up...."
Amanda Watts said in her police statement:" "We just wanted to leave earth and go to space and do drugs. I didn’t do nothing. Tito sold the golden tickets to heaven. I just watched."
Police said they confiscated over $10,000 in cash, drug paraphernalia, and a baby alligator.

Man charged with shooting smoke detector with shotgun to quiet it
by The Associated Press
Tuesday, May 1st 2018


BARTON, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont man is facing charges that he used a shotgun to silence a smoke detector in the kitchen of his apartment.

Police say two shots fired Monday afternoon from the 20-gauge shotgun owned by 68-year-old Leroy Mason, of Barton, hit the adjoining wall of an occupied apartment.
Police say Mason has complained about frequent false alarms from his smoke detector, and he was upset fire crews wouldn't relocate it so he "took it upon himself to relocate the smoke detector, and shot it with the shotgun."

Emergency personnel say they took the shotgun from Mason, who then pointed a handgun at them while demanding his shotgun. Emergency crews disarmed Mason.

There were no injuries.

Mason pleaded not guilty Tuesday and was released.

His attorney declined to comment.

New Jersey 'mystery pooper' was schools chief, say police

1525437280304.png

Police say they have got to the bottom of the "mystery pooper" investigation

Police hunting a suspect who relieved himself on school grounds "on a daily basis" in the US state of New Jersey have arrested a top education official.

Kenilworth school superintendent Thomas Tramaglini, 42, was detained after investigators set up a sting operation to snare the "mystery pooper".

Police were called after students complained of frequent excrement near their school running track and field.

Mr Tramaglini is charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public.
In a statement, the Holmdel Township Police Department said they opened an investigation after high school staff and sports coaches reported "they were finding human faeces, on or near the area of the High School track / football field on a daily basis".

According to local media, the superintendent lives about three miles (4.8km) from the Holmdel High School in Monmouth County, 40 miles from New York City.

On Monday at 05:50 local time (09:50 GMT), officers approached the superintendent while he was running at the school track, the scene of the alleged crime.

Mr Tramaglini, who earns nearly $150,000 (£110,000) per year as head of the local education authority, was arrested.

Police officers said they had just observed him in the act.

Vito Gagliardi, a lawyer for the school board, told APP.com that Mr Tramaglini has been "highly regarded" during his three years as head of the local schools.

The superintendent has been placed on paid leave, according to the Kenilworth Public School district.
"Given the nature of those charges, he asked for and was granted a paid leave of absence," the school board wrote on Facebook.

"Leaves can only be without pay in the face of indictments or tenure charges, as a matter of state law."

It is unclear why Mr Tramaglini allegedly did not use toilet facilities.

On Facebook, local residents speculated on his potential motive, with some arguing he should not be punished unless his intent was malicious.

Others questioned whether Mr Tramaglini, if guilty, could have a condition that left him unable to restrain his bowel movements.

Social media jokesters have dubbed the culprit "the super pooper" or the "poopetrator".
