In West Haven, Connecticut a woman has been charged with prostitution after calling police to complain about how she was being treated by a pimp.
Police say they did not find the pimp when they arrived at a Super 8 motel in West Haven on Sunday, but they did find 35-year-old Jennifer Lowery with a man they describe as a customer.
Police charged Lowery with prostitution and Richard Burford, 60, of New Haven with patronizing a prostitute.
Police say Lowery told them she thought it would take police longer to show up, so she decided to conduct some business while waiting.
The crazy thing about this next story is the fact that this girls parents had no idea that they were doing anything crazy.
A couple is facing charges after a 10-year-old girl rode in a dog cage in the back of a pickup truck on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
“She wanted to be with her dog. She plays with him in here all the time. They were strapped in,” Abbey Carlson said,
Today, the two spoke about the incident claiming it was all a misunderstanding. The parents Carlson, 29, and stepfather, 30-year-old Thomas Fishinger, said their daughter likes to play in the cage with her dog. So, when the dog started to cry during the drive home they let her climb in.
“I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. We weren’t going fast. We weren’t,” Carlson said.
“It was back there because we knew that it was three of us, so we couldn’t put the dog inside the cab,” Fishinger said.
“I just didn’t think it would be an issue,” Carlson said.
State police were notified about the girl in the cage and told the Millvale Police to be on the lookout. They arrested the couple when they got to their Evergreen Road home.
Both are facing felony counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
“I put two ratchet straps like a seat belt. There were two ratchet straps holding the cage down,” Fishinger said.
Straps or no straps Carlson and Fishinger realize this was a big mistake.
“Oh, my God yes. I would never hurt my daughter.” Fishinger said. “She will never get in the back of a truck again.”
All I have to say is, WHY?!
This Monday, on Memorial Day, a Rhode Island man brought a pony into a liquor store and the pony pooped on the floor.
“The horse walks in and all of a sudden he starts doing his thing all over the floor. He seemed a little disengaged with what was going on around him, because he didn’t have a clue his horse even did that. I was very puzzled,” said the store’s owner Rick Lima.
Shock and surprise by workers and customers quickly turned into a minor dispute with the animal’s owner. Police arrived to the store a short time later and located the man outside.
The animal’s owner returned to the store to clean up the mess.
This guy must have already been drunk. Everybody knows that if you're going to bring a pony to the store, you should at least ride it!
