A J.C. Penney Employee Was Sent Home For Wearing Something Too Revealing — That She’d Bought in the Store

And now, a phrase I never thought I’d say: That J.C. Penney outfit is just too sexy.

A 17-year-old named Sylva Stoel was working at her job at J.C. Penney last week and her boss pulled her aside and told her she had to go home and CHANGE, because the red shorts she was wearing were, quote, “too revealing.”

There’s only one problem. Sylva had bought the shorts THERE . . . in J.C. Penney’s “career” section.

She told the manager it wasn’t fair to send her home for that, but he insisted. When he asked her how long it would take her to go home and change, she said it would take the whole day, because she wasn’t coming back. Yep . . . she QUIT.

Stupid Criminals!!!

New Jersey cops pulled over OCTAVIO DELASUAREE when he cut them off on the highway.

They described him as breathing heavy, shaking uncontrollably and having white powder around his nostrils and mouth. They asked him if the white powder was cocaine, and he replied, “No officer! I just ate a powdered donut!”

The cops weren’t buying that line, especially since they found a 9mm semi-automatic gun in the car along with four hollow point bullets, 17 Oxycodone pills, drug paraphernalia and, anyone want to guess what else? Cocaine. Stupid Criminals!!!

 

Traffic Cop Saves The Life Of Choke Victim He Pulled Over

She was NOT given a ticket.

Getting’ Freaky On the Web!

Wedding season is here and crazy single girls will do almost anything to catch that bouquet –even forget to care for small, innocent children!

A video making the rounds shows a woman’s desperate attempt to catch the bouquet at a wedding.  The unidentified wedding guest is seen holding a baby as the bride tosses the bouquet overhead. In a mad dash to grab the flowers, the woman appears to forget there’s a baby in her arms. She drops the kid to the floor as she reaches for the bouquet.

She immediately realizes her mistake and rushes to comfort the child, who doesn’t appear to be seriously injured. Someone posted the footage, which has been viewed 691,000 times. Rest assured, the child was not injured in the wedding fun and games.

 

Dead or Alive??

Congrats! You’ve lived to be 92! Oh sorry, you woke up in the morgue.

A woman in Germany fell ill and on a check-in, her visiting nurse found her unresponsive and not breathing. She called a doctor in who pronounced the woman dead.

Relatives all said their final goodbyes and off to the morgue she went, only to wake up in the undertakers cooler. She started screaming for help –and thankfully he heard her and had her rushed to the hospital.

She did die two days later, but not from anything that happened at the morgue. However, the doctor that pronounced her dead is due in court on charges of bodily harm caused by negligence.

 

A Woman Is Banned From Talking About Her Ex on Facebook, or She’ll Get Five Years in Prison

Is talking smack about your ex on Facebook worth going to jail for? I guess we’re about to find out.

40-year-old Maureen Curoe of Belfast, Northern Ireland was in a long relationship with a guy named Adrian McAleese, but they broke up three years ago. And ever since then, she’s been BLASTING him and his new girlfriend on Facebook.

She would post lies about Adrian, she called his new girlfriend nasty things, and she even made up a fake Facebook account to send them obscene messages. So Adrian finally called the police, and Maureen was in court this week.

The judge decided the posts weren’t a legitimate threat, but he DID put a restraining order on Maureen’s Facebook use. If she mentions Adrian or contacts him on Facebook in the next two years, she’ll go to prison for FIVE years.  Click here to see a picture of Maureen.

A Guy Tried to Take a Selfie with a Rattlesnake, and Ended Up With a Hospital Bill for $153,000

Remember the woman last week who tried to take a selfie with a BISON? It ended poorly.

A guy in San Diego named Todd Fassler tried to take a selfie with a RATTLESNAKE back on the Fourth of July. He says he feels comfortable around rattlesnakes, since he used to have one as a PET. But the selfie didn’t work out so well, because he got BITTEN.

He ended up in intensive care, and there’s a nasty video of his right arm . . . the whole thing turned dark purple from the venom. But the financial fallout might be worse.

He was in the hospital for almost a week and two different hospitals had to use all of their anti-venom to save his life. The bill was more than 153 THOUSAND DOLLARS. More than half of that was for the anti-venom.

It looks like he doesn’t have insurance, so he’s responsible for ALL of it.

 

From The Man Bites Dog, Dep’t:

Police in Casper, Wyoming, hadn’t seen everything, until yesterday.

A routine traffic stop turned out to be more than they bargained for when the man stepped out of his El Camino and several eyeballs slid out of his right pant leg. At first they thought they had a serial killer on their hands, but turns out they had a cannibal of sorts.

ROY TILBOTT, who’s 51, works at Johnson Meats, a nearby slaughterhouse, where they usually throw out extra parts of the cows they slaughter. Roy finds it a waste, and since he loves the taste of cow eyeballs, he decided to smuggle them home, in his pants.

Quote, “Company won’t let us take animal scraps home and instead toss them in the landfill. They’re a very wasteful company. I enjoy eating bovine eyeballs and smuggling them out was the only way I knew how to get them out without potentially getting caught.”

When asked how many he’d taken over the years, Tilbott estimates several thousand. Police are waiting to talk to his employer before they press any charges.

 

Impaled By A Tree Branch

A bicyclist in New Mexico was impaled by a tree branch and somehow survived.

The unidentified mountain biker fell off his bike and landed on a two-centimeter-wide branch, which went through his neck. In spite of the immense pain, he managed to jump in a car and drive 20-miles to the University of New Mexico medical center.

Doctors say the branch somehow missed his airways, nerves, and major blood vessels. He was treated and released.

A Couple Ordered a Double Cheeseburger at McDonald’s, and Got a Wet Rag Instead

Debbie and Hans Wirth of Elk Grove Village, Illinois went through a McDonald’s drive-thru last week, and got a double cheeseburger.

But when they got home and unwrapped it, instead of finding their burger . . . they found a WET RAG. So they called the store, and the manager told them to come in so he could give them a burger. But that made them upset, since he didn’t even apologize.

Eventually he DID call and say he was sorry, and was looking into what happened . . . but it seems like the Wirths are done with his McDonald’s.

Not ALL McDonald’s, though. Hans went to a DIFFERENT one the next night and ordered a double cheeseburger. And they actually served him the burger, not a wet rag.

A Couple on a First Date Got Lost Hiking and Had to Be Airlifted Out

I hope these two wind up getting married, because they have an unbeatable “bad first date” story.

A guy and girl in Los Angeles had their first date on Friday, and decided to go on a hike through Angeles National Forest. Their ages weren’t released, but the sheriff’s department says they were young.

Well somehow they got lost in the forest, REALLY lost. It got so bad that they wandered around until they could find cell phone service, and called for help. Then the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department had to send a HELICOPTER out to rescue them, and they were airlifted out of the forest.

There’s no word if they’re planning to go on a second date.

A Good Laugh About A Very Smelly Situation

A truck carrying a bunch of porta potties crashed on a highway in Washington state last week.

Take not that they were all FULL, so a hazmat team had to come clean up the mess. At least The Washington State Department of Transportation showed a good sense of humor over a very smelly situation.

They sent out a tweet later that said traffic was very “constipated,” and that the road was “backed up” for about five miles.

A Woman Tried to Take a Selfie With a Bison and Got Flipped in the Air

People take absurd risks on a daily basis for the sake of selfies. So it’s inevitable things will go wrong once in a while.

A 43-year-old woman from Mississippi was at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming earlier this week, and tried to take a selfie with a BISON. But she got too close and spooked him.

So he charged her . . . hit her with his HEAD . . . and flipped her into the AIR. She was hospitalized with minor injuries. And as far as we know, she hasn’t shared the selfie she took before she got gored.

 

Stupid Criminals – Dude Tries to Rob a 7-11 With His Finger

Hey did you hear about the Stupid Criminal who tried to rob a 7-Eleven with a finger gun, but he accidentally took his finger out of his pocket???

As far as all-time worst robbery attempts go, this is right up near the top. 60-year-old Donald Chaney of Medford, Oregon went into a 7-Eleven on Sunday night, and tried to rob the place . . . by using his hand to pretend he had a GUN in his pocket.

Then he demanded $50 and some cigarettes. And maybe the whole finger gun thing would’ve fooled the clerk, but it DEFINITELY didn’t fool him once Donald accidentally took his hand OUT of his pocket, and his “gun” magically disappeared.

Stupid Criminals!!!

The clerk refused to give him anything and called the cops, and Donald was arrested for third-degree robbery.

 

A Guy Got Busted For Smoking When His Wife Saw Him On Google Maps

58-year-old Donald Ryding from Merseyside, England told his wife Julie he quit smoking last year.

He made the promise after he suffered a heart attack. But he LIED. He would still go outside and smoke in their driveway. And he might have gotten away with it . . . if it wasn’t for Google Street View.

Donald was outside smoking when the Google mapping car drove by, and took a picture of him in front of the house. Then when Julie checked out their place on Google Street View later that week, she BUSTED him.

Even though it was hard to see the cigarette in his hand, she knew what he was doing. Donald says he’s ACTUALLY cut back since he got caught lying. Click here to see the photo.

911 call - freeA Guy Called 911 Pretending to Have Chest Pains–To Get Help Fixing His Air Conditioner

Summer heat makes people do crazy, crazy things.

27-year-old Travis Turner of Indiana, Pennsylvania called 911 on Sunday afternoon, and said he was having chest pains. And that’s a pretty believable story, since Travis is 4-foot-11 and 380 pounds.

So paramedics rushed out to his apartment. But when they got there, he told them he was fine . . . he ACTUALLY just needed help fixing his air conditioner. The paramedics left to go to a real medical emergency at a Chinese restaurant nearby.

Then the police headed over to Travis’s place and arrested him for obstructing emergency services and disorderly conduct, and when they dug a little deeper, they found that Travis has made at least SIXTY fake 911 calls over the past three years.

 

MugshotA Guy Loses His Car Keys During a Robbery and Gets Busted Taking a Taxi

This makes me feel better about all the times I’ve ever lost my keys.

23-year-old Dustin Ronayne stole $690 out of the cash register at a store in Fort Pierce, Florida on Monday night, then, as in any robbery situation, you need to make your get-away as soon as possible.

But somehow while he was stealing the money . . . he lost his KEYS. So he improvised, and called a cab. It picked him up and took him to a motel, but the cops were easily able to track him down there later that night.

He was arrested for robbery and he’s still in jail.  Stupid Criminals!!!

 

A Postal Worker Saved a Guy’s Life When She Noticed He Hadn’t Checked His Mail

Cissy Cartwright delivers mail in Hope Hull, Alabama. She’s worked for the Post Office for 20 years.

And being a veteran comes in handy. Because she noticed that a guy on her route hadn’t checked his mail in a long time. His name is Tommy Hope . . . he’s 66 . . . and Cissy knew that just wasn’t like him.

So she walked up his long driveway to check on him, since he lives in a secluded, rural area. It turns out his front door was wide open . . . he was stranded on the floor dehydrated, with multiple broken bones . . . and he’d been there for TEN DAYS.

He’d fallen back on July Fourth, and couldn’t get to a phone. So he survived by moving on his back to the front door, to catch rain water with a bucket. That’s how Cissy found him and she took it from there.

Now he’s recovering in a hospital in Montgomery, and says Cissy saved his life.

A Guy Who Doesn’t Speak French Just Won the French Scrabble Championship

A guy named Nigel Richards from New Zealand won the official French Scrabble championship tournament in Belgium on Monday. This is pretty impressive . . . since he DOESN’T SPEAK FRENCH.

Nigel has won a bunch of other Scrabble championships before, but they’ve always been in English.

He spent eight weeks memorizing the French dictionary before the competition. And while that wasn’t enough for him to learn how to speak or actually use the language, it WAS enough for him to win the tournament.

 

A Thief Is Facing a Felony Charge For Stealing Ramen

Ramen noodles might be the cheapest food you can buy, at any store, anywhere in the country. If you pay more than like 79 cents for them, you’ve been ripped off. In other words . . . they’re really not worth stealing.

A guy named Gabriel Janis bought a cup of Ramen noodles from a convenience store in Rapid City, South Dakota around 2:30 A.M. on Monday. Then he heated them up in the microwave, and went outside to eat them.

But while he was enjoying his noodles, a 27-year-old guy named Lariat Comes walked up . . . DEMANDED his Ramen noodles, and threatened to hit Gabriel with a CHAIN if he didn’t give them up. So Gabriel handed them over.

The cops arrested Lariat about a block away. He was eating the noodles and still had the chain on him, and now he’s facing a FELONY charge of second-degree robbery.  Stupid Criminals!!!

A Guy Who Survived a Lightning Strike Won a Million Dollar Lottery Jackpot

You always hear that you’re more likely to be struck by lightning than to win the lottery.

Peter McCathie of Canada, survived getting hit by lightning when he was 14. It happened during a boat trip in Nova Scotia, while he was wading in a lake on a sunny day.

And now that he’s in his forties, he just won a million dollar LOTTERY jackpot. The odds of getting struck by lightning in Canada are about one in a million. And the odds of winning the Lotto game he hit are one in 13,983,816.

Oh, Peter also owns the store where he bought the ticket. So he gets another $10,000 from the lottery commission.

Bold and Cold Thieves!

MICHELLE TIETZ’s wedding day was tarnished when she realized she was robbed during the ceremony!!!

While she was getting married, someone went in the marriage suite, grabbed her wallet and took off to do some major shopping. She reported the theft as soon as she realized it and surveillance tape caught the face of the thief.

However, the woman hasn’t been caught and was able to charge $14 hundred bucks worth of stuff before the cards were cancelled.

 

Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 5.33.33 AMPolice Caught a Thief After He Posted Photos on Facebook Holding the Stuff He Stole

At the rate things are going, social media may prove to be the best crime fighting tool EVER.

37-year-old Adrian Staples of Thief River Falls, Minnesota robbed a convenience store earlier this month by threatening the clerk with a SWORD. And that right there would make him a criminal stupid enough to talk about. But it gets better.

The sword thing actually worked, and Adrian stole some cash and cigarettes. Then he took off and went home. But about half an hour later, he posted PHOTOS on Facebook holding up the stuff he’d stolen.

Luckily the cops decided to search on social media for suspects . . . probably because of the many, MANY stories in the news about idiot criminals incriminating themselves online. And guess what!!! They found Adrian’s post, and he was arrested for robbery.

 

Two Guys Stole an ATM, But It Fell Out of Their Van as They Drove Away

Two men backed their van up to a grocery store in Lynnwood, Washington on Sunday night, walked up to the ATM, cut the cables, and loaded the entire thing into their van.

But apparently they didn’t do a particularly good job securing it in the van. They hit a speed bump on their way out of the parking lot, and it FELL OUT. At that point, they just sped off and left it behind.

The police are trying to track them down . . . AND they’re investigating whether these are the same guys who stole another ATM last week.

MugshotA Guy Robbed a Lemonade Stand After the Girls Running it Gave Him Free Lemonade

I’m really glad this guy got caught.

Two 13-year-old girls were running a lemonade stand in Rancho Cucamonga, California on Wednesday, when an 18-year-old guy named Santini Tate wandered up.

He said he didn’t have any money, so the girls gave him some lemonade for FREE. And he thanked them…by ROBBING them. He knocked over their lemonade stand, and stole their cash box. It had $30 inside, which isn’t too bad for a lemonade stand.

Luckily the cops caught him about 10 minutes later, and arrested him for strong-arm robbery.

 

A Carjacker Fails When He’s Too Tall to Fit in the Driver’s Seat

This is a pretty great reason for a carjacking to go wrong.

A 34-year-old woman from Omaha, Nebraska was parking her 2006 Suzuki Aerio hatchback on Thursday, when a guy ran up . . . pointed a gun at her . . . and told her to get out.

So she did. Then the guy tried to hop in the car to steal it . . . but there was a problem.

The woman is only five feet tall, so she’d moved the driver’s seat right up against the steering wheel. But the carjacker was around six feet tall, and couldn’t drive with the seat that close.

Then he ASKED her how to adjust it, but she said she didn’t know. And since he couldn’t figure it out himself…he gave up and ran away.

The cops are still looking for him.

A Toddler Got Trapped in a BMW, But His Mom Wouldn’t Let Firefighters Break the Windows

If your kid was trapped in a hot car, I’m pretty sure you’d break the window to get him out . . . your priority is the kid, not the car.

A three-year-old kid in Yiwu, China recently got trapped inside his mom’s BMW. Firefighters rushed to the scene and they were about to break the window to get him out . . . but the woman STOPPED them.

She wanted to wait for the locksmith instead, because she didn’t want to damage her BMW. So the firefighters held off on breaking the window . . . until the kid started to FAINT. Then they went ahead and smashed the window, while the crowd stood there horrified at the mom’s choice of her car over her kid.

As far as we know the kid survived, and the mom wasn’t arrested.

 

A Taco Bell Manager Busted the Guys Who Stole His Car When They Came Through His Drive-Thru

Even criminals can’t resist the urge for some Nachos Bell Grande.

Randy Jones of Riverside, California is the manager at a Taco Bell. And he dropped off his Nissan 350Z at a Nissan dealership one day before work last week, to have a few repairs done.

A few hours later, he was shocked to see HIS OWN CAR pull into the drive-thru. Apparently two mechanics were taking it for a JOYRIDE . . . and they stopped for some food at the Taco Bell. Obviously they had no idea Randy worked there.

Stupid Criminals!!!

He called the dealership instead of the cops . . . and they fired the mechanics and offered him about $3,000 worth of free repairs and upgrades.

Crook Passes Counterfeit Bills, Blames It On Obama

A Tennessee woman accused of counterfeiting had an interesting excuse. Cops say when 45-year-old PAMELA DOWNS was arrested for passing counterfeit notes, she told them: “OBAMA made it legal.”

Downs is charged with handing a gas station employee a fake $5-dollar bill printed on a computer with the two sides glued together. Police say they also found a fake black-and-white hundred dollar bill in her purse. The back of the hundred was glued on upside down. They also allegedly found receipts from WalMart for a printer and copy paper.

Downs reportedly told police that she had read online about a new law Obama passed that allowed low-income people to print their own cash.

Cops Bust a Guy For 16 Pounds of Meth When He Calls 911 Because His Cousin Won’t Get Out of the Car

Perhaps if you have a GIANT quantity of drugs, you shouldn’t invite the cops to come over and check it out.

28-year-old Jonathan Potzler was in a Walmart parking lot in Fort Morgan, Colorado on Saturday afternoon, and his 21-year-old cousin Jazmin was in his car. But they got into a fight when she wouldn’t get out, so Jonathan wound up calling 911.

And when the cops got there, they were less concerned with helping the cousins get over their argument . . . and more concerned with the 16 POUNDS of METH in the car.

Stupid Criminals!!!

Jonathan and Jazmin were arrested on several felony drug charges. The cops say all that meth was worth more than $700,000.

Here are their mugshots:

A Skydiving Plane Had to Land on a Busy Highway in New Jersey

A single-engine plane made an emergency landing on a busy highway in New Jersey on Sunday, about 30 miles north of Atlantic City.

But somehow the pilot missed all the cars, and a camera on an overpass got it on video. He started having engine problems at 4,000 feet, and couldn’t make it to an airport. So he landed on the road, and then managed to swerve onto the median where there was a long patch of grass.

A skydiving instructor on board ended up with a cut on his arm, and the plane has some damage from hitting a few road signs, but that’s it.

Police say the men used a stolen backhoe to dislodge the cash machine from CenterState Bank in Winter Haven at around midnight last Friday. They were able to load the machine into their Ford F-250 pickup truck.

A Car Thief Steals a Family’s Broken Down SUV . . . and Repairs It?

If all criminals were this helpful, sign me up to be a victim ASAP.

Shane and Chelsea Peters of Livingston, Texas drive a 2004 Dodge Durango SUV and it’s in bad shape. It has a ton of dents, a window’s missing, and you needed to start it with a TOOL instead of a key.

And as Shane was driving to work early last month, it broke down on the side of the highway. He couldn’t afford to have it towed, so he just left it there until he could figure out how to move it. But when he went back to check on it later that week . . . someone had STOLEN it.

It was missing for about a month, then Chelsea randomly spotted it in a gas station on Sunday. So she called the cops, and they got it back . . . but there was a twist.

The thief had fixed the drive shaft, installed three new wheels, and had it running well again. He also left a bunch of meth in the center console, but hey, if that meth fueled an auto repair binge, it went to a good cause.

The cops arrested the guy for car theft and drug possession. And the Peters say they’re happy to get their repaired SUV back.
