Man Butt-Dials 911 While Discussing Murder Plot
Florida resident Scott Simon learned a tough lesson about butt-dialing after he unintentionally dialed 911 while still frothing with rage over a late-night dispute at a Waffle House. In the recording, Simon is heard saying that he intends to follow the man he was arguing with to his house and shoot him.
That’s a big no-no with 911 dispatchers
That man, Nicholas Walker, was indeed shot and killed mere minutes later, while he was pulling his car onto I-95. Simon was arrested Tuesday over the May 5 incident, and while police don’t think he actually killed Walker, he’s been charged with first-degree murder because they believe he orchestrated the hit.
“This is a first for me,” a police spokesman said. “Criminals say crazy things all the time, but I’ve never seen anyone call a recorded line.”
Two Teenagers Arrested For Threatening Steubenville Victim
Teenagers will never learn, specially when it comes to threatening people over social networks: That’s the lesson two 16-year-old girls learned after police arrested them for allegedly posting death threats against the victim of the Steubenville rape case
The threats were made on Facebook and Twitter, the AP reports; CBS News quotes one of them as reading, “you ripped my family apart, you made my cousin cry , so when I see you xxxxx, it’s gone be a homicide.” Police say they’ve linked one of the girls to one of the convicted rapists, Ma’Lik Richmond. The girls are being held in a juvenile facility, and face charges of aggravated menacing.
What I find really disturbing is that the teenagers making threats are girls… just saying.
KFC Will Lick Your Mashed Potatoes… At Least This Woman Would (pic)
A KFC employee was fired after posting a photo on Facebook of her licking a tub of mashed potatoes.
The photo of course went somewhat viral and reached the eyes of KFC parent company Yum Brands
The photo made its way to the Facebook page of WJHL News Channel 11 in Johnson City, Tenn. As the photo gained traction, WJHL reached out to KFC to learn more. Spokesman Rick Maynard responded that the food was never served to customers and both the employee in the photo and the employee that took the photo have been terminated.
I don’t know about you, but I rather have this girl lick my mashed potatoes than getting this nugget.
Drunk Flyer Gets Duct-Taped to Seat (pic)
Duct tape has so many uses, including bounding drunk people to airplane chairs… The crew of an Icelandair flight used it to bind a drunk and raging passenger to his seat.
Gudmundur Karl Arthorsson,46, reportedly started assaulting passengers and things went downhill from there.
“He tried to grope and strangle fellow passengers and tried to choke the woman next to him and was screaming the plane was going to crash,” said a terrified passenger.
“Just think of a typical drunk, when he starts taking fighting poses,” a police source said, adding that Arthorsson appeared to be “completely out of his mind.”
An off-duty captain on board helped two male passengers pin him down while the flight crew taped him to the seat and applied Flex cuffs. There he sat—quietly, because they taped his mouth, too—until police escorted him off upon landing.
Man Dies After Eating 28 Raw Eggs On A Bet
Life must be pretty boring down in Tunisia because there is no other reason a human being would volunteer to eat 30 raw eggs in one sitting.
Yes, that’s what Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, did after taking a bet from his friends… oh, did I mention he died? He made it to 28 eggs when he started to experience stomach pains and was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
It remains unclear how the eggs were ingested, but at least one news source appears to suggest they were swallowed whole.
Kate Middleton’s Prank Callers Lose Job, Show Canceled
The two Australian DJs responsable for the now infamous and lethal prank call that exposed personal health information about Britain’s pregnant Duchess Catherine have seen their radio show pulled from the airwaves. The cancellation comes just days after the nurse who put the call through to a hospital administrator took her own life.
As we all know by now, Mel Greig and Michael Christian prank called London’s King Edward VII Hospital in London, where Kate Middleton was being treated for acute morning sickness. Pretending to be Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles inquiring on the health of the Duchess of Cambridge, the two say they never expected to get anywhere with the call, let alone inspire a suicide.
Jacintha Saldanha, a 46-year-old married mother, was found dead in her London home early Friday.
Southern Croos Austereo (SCA) is the company that owns the station, 2Day FM, involved in the prank call. They issued a statement expressing its “deep regret” over Saldanha’s death following the prank and assured that it’s “taking the events of the last few days very seriously.” Following the announcement they cancelled 2Day FM until further notice, terminated the 2Day FM Hot 30 show, issued a companywide suspension of “prank” calls and is undergoing a comprehensive review of relevant company policies and processes. The Saldanha family is blaming the DJs along with the radio station, which could lead to further legal action being taken.
Meanwhile, the Australian shock-jocks gave teary-eyed appeals that they never meant to cause harm in a traumatic trick that we merely designed to “be stupid.” And while sounding upset about the tragedy, the pair stopped short of a full apology, instead saying:
“If we played any involvement in her death, then we’re very sorry for that and only time will tell.”
How Stupid Can You Get? Girl Steals Car, Robs Bank, Posts It On YouTube
19-year-old Hannah Sabata of Nebraska appears to be smart enough to steal a car and a bank, but dumb enough to post is online.
Sabata posted a video on YouTube in which she dangles what seem to be the keys to a stolen car and fan herself with money (some $6,256) she claims to have stolen at gunpoint from a bank.
In the video, Sabata smokes what subtitles identify as “like, an ounce of weed,” and holds up signs—which read backward—narrating her alleged crimes. “I told my mom today was the best day of my life,” one reads. “She just thinks I met a new boy.” She goes on to explain that she did it because “the government stole my baby.”
Not surprisingly, cops were able to apprehend this master criminal on Wednesday. She was led away in handcuffs wearing the same outfit she has on in the video—which was also the same outfit seen on bank security cameras.
Man Kills Self After Obama Win
Apparently four more years of Obama was too much for a troubled Florida man who committed suicide after the election results were official.
Officers who had been requested to conduct a welfare check found the body of Henry Hamilton, 64, next to two empty bottles of anxiety and schizophrenia medication in the Key West home he shared with his male partner, the Miami Herald reports.
Hamilton, owner of a tanning salon, was stressed about his business and was “very upset about the election results,” his partner told police. The words “F*** Obama!” were found scrawled on Hamilton’s will.
