You almost wish this headline was just click-bait. But unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you see it), this actually happened. A routine traffic stop turned bizarre is this week's Florida headline. A couple was pulled over in May after running a stop sign, and deputies asked them what they had been doing, and they responded searching for frogs and snakes to collect. The deputies asked them if they had any other creatures in the truck, and that is when things took a turn for the weird.The woman had over 40 turtles in a Ninja Turtles backpack, which was definitely an eye-opener. But that is not what shocked the officers.
The woman in the truck, Ariel Le Quire, after being asked if she had anything else, promptly pulled a foot-long alligator from the yoga pants she was wearing, and placed it in the bed of the pickup truck. The pair were cited and a judge found little humor in her stunt. sentencing Le Quire to 6 months probation, 200 hours of community service, and required her to pay $500 to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. This was all for charges of possessing an American Alligator, transporting more than one turtle or turtle egg, one count of possessing a soft-shell turtle, and one count of possessing more than one turtle, per day.
The woman was also homeless at the time, so it is uncertain how the court expects her to pay the fine. But internet ridicule is sometimes a better teacher than any monetary penance could be.
Tying a tie is basically impossible, especially when you need some guy who isn’t your father teaching you. Just ask this college kid who had the cop that pulled him over tie his tie for him.
When college student Tevor Keeny was pulled over for speeding by Officer Martin Folczyk, he admitted that he didn’t know how to tie a tie, telling Folczyk that he was rushing to a friend’s house because his friend knows how to tie a tie. That’s when the cop arrested him and threw him in jail.
Just kidding, the cop taught him to tie a tie.
Ugh. He’s not even the kid’s real father. What’s next, he’s going to expect to play catch with this kid he pulled over? Is he going to teach him to shave? The cop isn’t even his real father!
Here’s a dude that’s definitely the worst: This Australian cop who shot a kangaroo right in front of a little kid. Yeah, you read that correctly: Cop shoots kangaroo in front of child. Come on.
News.com.au reports that police were responding to report of an injured kangaroo in north Melbourne, Aust on November 11. Well, one cop responded by shooting an injured kangaroo in the face. Another police officer responded to the officer by saying, “There’s a kid coming.”
Luckily, because this situation can only get worse, the kangaroo didn’t die right away. As News.com.au reports that in the video it can be “seen still twitching and writhing as its blood pools on the footpath.”
Let's take a break from this story:
While the officers say that they did a risk assessment and determined by that the animal needed to be euthanized, they have come under fire for shooting the gun in public
“The police could have definitely handled it better,” said Hash Tropoja, who filmed the incident and uploaded the video to YouTube. “They could have blocked off cars and pedestrians from coming through the line of sight while the sergeant was taking the shot, because the bullet is a small calibre and definitely had the potential to ricochet off of the concrete in to any direction.”
“I think it’s mere luck that nothing tragic happened.”
Nothing tragic, except if you ask the kangaroo, except you can’t ask the kangaroo because the kangaroo was shot and killed. Ugh.
Ok. Let's try to get our minds off this:
On Sunday at 3 in the morning Mark Ross was notified that his sister, Eliza Fletcher (15 years old) had been killed in a car crash. Inside Edition reports that Trooper J. Davis ended up pulling their car over for speeding over 100mph; and that when Davis determined that Ross had an outstanding warrant and that his license had been suspended, he ended up towing their car.
Fast forward a bit, and Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robinson showed up and saved the day!
Ross also went on to share some texts he'd exchanged with his sister mere weeks ago. May she rest in peace.
Utah, America's northern-most Florida, has done it again.
A Subway employee in Layton decided to punk a cop by putting a cocktail of marijuana, THC and methamphetamine in his drink, as the world's dumbest free-gift-with-purchase idea.
A video shows the clerk leaning over the Officer's drink a little too long, and the unnamed Sergeant had his colleagues test his drink after he tried to drive back to the station and started to feel all wonky.
The Subway presumptive-former-employee is busy thinking about what he did in a jail cell right now.
A California man ended his night with sore eyes and in handcuffs after his Uber driver fought back against an alleged assault.
Uber driver Edward Caban was able to grab his pepper spray and defend himself against 32-year-old Benjamin Golden, the passenger Caban said was too drunk and belligerent to give proper directions.
He captured the entire encounter on his dashboard camera.
"He was grabbing my head and was trying to smash it against the window," Caban told NBC4.
"I wanted to make sure he didn't get away," Caban said. "I have lost so much money on people like him and I'm done dealing with it. They take the food right out of my mouth."
Golden was arrested on public intoxication and assault charges, Costa Mesa police said.
Caban ended his YouTube description with this very true statement: "Uber drivers don't get paid enough to deal with this sh*t."
This whole situation just really stinks.
A New Jersey man is facing charges after wiping a police summons "between his butt cheeks" and throwing it at an officer.
The 45-year-old man is reportedly facing a felony for purposely causing the officer to come in contact with bodily fluids during the incident this summer.
The indictment alleges that the man threw the summons in the direction of the officer after "placing it between his butt cheeks" and "wiping the paper in an upward and downward motion."
Dang, Jersey man. You're giving Florida man a run for his money.
This driver better be glad he pulled this stunt in Canada.
In an intense video, police officers can be seen ordering a man out of his giant truck as he continually rams back and forth into two police cruisers.
The chaotic encounter happened after midnight on Saturday at an impaired-driving checkpoint in Salt Spring Island, Canada, according to Times Colonist.
Cops tried to break in the vehicle with their batons, but it doesn't even seem to faze the driver.
After speeding away, the driver was found inside the overturned vehicle clutching an axe and trying to set the truck on fire, according to police. After a several hour stand-off, he was apprehended under the Mental Health Act.
Dang, rough night.
Meet the newest member of New Jersey's finest: Donald Duck.
On Halloween, New Jersey police in Ft. Lee used a cop dressed in a Donald Duck mascot suit to try to catch drivers who weren't yielding to pedestrians.
Donald would step into the crosswalk, and if the cars didn't stop, police would chase them down further down the road.
One of the women who didn't stop for Donald was Karen Haigh, who received a $230 fine and was terrified more than anything else.
"They told me that I was getting a ticket for not stopping for a duck," she said. "But it scared me. I'm a woman. This huge duck scared me."
But what about Donald Duck? Lurking around the city pantsless must be breaking some sort of decency law in New Jersey too, right?
In a scene that sounds straight out of a video game, police officers and a helicopter descended on a Washington home Thursday, after receiving a 911 call that the family inside was being held hostage.
According to Komo News:
"The caller said he had an assault rifle and he had placed explosives in the yard and he was holding a family hostage," said Nathan Elledge, chief of police at the Sammamish Police Department. "He wanted $20,000 to release the family."
It turns out that the call was actually made by a computer, and the owner of the home is a top exec at Bungie, the game developer behind "Halo" and the recent hit "Destiny."
And on top of all that, investigators think the suspect "has ties to the video game community."
Let the conspiracy theories begin.
24-year old Riley Swearingen thought nothing about his drunken joke on a police officer.
According to the criminal complaint, Mankato Department of Public Safety Police Sergeant Adam Gray was talking with a driver of a "drunk bus" in the city's entertainment district when he "felt two fingertips that were obvious to him as wet with saliva being pushed into his right and left ear canals, which caused pressure and discomfort in his ear canals."
The officer turned and saw a man later identified as Swearingen tell his friends, "I just gave the cop a wet Willie."
"Sergeant Gray immediately proceeded after the male who assaulted him," the complaint continues.
Once he was apprehended, Swearingen told Gray he was just joking around and was sorry, but Gray arrested him anyway.
