Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (3-20-2015)
A dumb defense lawyer who left a baggie containing two ounces of marijuana on a courtroom bench has agreed to pay a $150 fine to resolve the infraction.
Vincent J. Fazzone, 46, was in a courtroom in New London, Connecticut, Tuesday morning when the-pot allegedly fell out of his back pocket in front of the marshals, his paralegal Holly McGregor told the Hartford Courant.
"When he got up with his client it fell out of his back pocket," McGregor said. "After he was done with the judge, the marshal said when you're done speaking with your client we need to talk to you."
The baggie allegedly contained two ounces of a green, leafy plant like substance that was suspected to be marijuana, according to the Norwich Bulletin.
McGregor said her boss doesn't smoke pot and that he received the weed from a client, who allegedly took it from her child, and asked Fazzone to confront the kid later in the day about the dangers of drugs, TheDay.com reports.
“He put it in his pocket and forgot about it and he dropped it out when he stood up,” McGregor said. “He didn’t know until he left and somebody in the courtroom said something to him.”
Fazzone was ticketed for possession and has agreed to pay a $150 fine.
He wants to put the matter behind him, according to Associated Press.
Outside the court room he was heard telling a court officer, "I'm glad I left my crack pipe in my other pants today."
It takes a certain kind of idioticy and callousness to rob an ice cream shop of tips on free cone day. But blatantly bragging about it on the Internet is just plain ol' stupid.
Police in St. Clair Shores, Michigan say agroup of five teenage girls swiped the tip jar at a Dairy Queen on Monday, when the store was giving away free ice cream cones. The tip thieves fled, and other customers took photos of them, their getaway car and the car's plates.
They shared their photos with police, who are investigating the robbery. Those photos alone may have been enough to lead police to the girls, but Hope said what the accused teen thieves did next truly surprised her.
The five girls posted a video clip of themselves in the car waving what appears to be cash from the robbery to Snapchat. The caption says "Robbed Dairy Queen tip jar." They sent it to all their friends.
"I think they are stupid. I mean, really, who does that? They should be the dumbest criminals," Hope told Fox Detroit.
Snapchat is a photo messaging app that claims to delete images after they are sent. However, those who receive themcan take screen shots of the "snaps" and thereby preserve them. That's one way cops may have gotten ahold of the video.
So in addition to footage of the girls allegedly committing a robbery, cops may now have their hands on a confession. It's not clear if police have located the young women yet. Oh, but they will.
Hope says she doesn't want them to go to jail, but that she wants them to learn a lesson.
But.....jail is a lesson!
"They shouldn't be doing things like that," Hope said. "It's not how they should be growing up."
..........................Next in naked moron news......Residents in Charlotte, North Carolina, are upset over a neighbor they say likes to hang out in his doorway naked.
However, police officials said that while the view may not be pleasant, the man isn't breaking any laws.
Neighbors told WBTV that the unidentified man has stood naked at his front door several times a week for the last 10 years. The last time was on Friday.
“I was out rolling the trash can on Friday and I just happened to look over there and he was standing there buck naked,” neighbor Pecolia Threatt told the station.
Adrienna Harris, who wants the man arrested, told WBTV said her daughter won't leave the house if her naked neighbor is dangling in the doorway.
Neighbors estimate they've called the police 30 times since 2005, but police officials tell Time Warner Cable News that there's nothing they can do since the man is naked inside his own home.
It's possible that the naked neighbor could be charged with indecent exposure, but North Carolina law says he'd have to, willfully expose the private parts of his or her person in any public place and in the presence of any other person or persons."
The annoyed neighbors took a picture of the man standing a this door in all his glory on Friday. They plan to use the pics to get the neighborhood's Homeowners Association to file some type of nuisance complaint against the naked neighbor, according to the Charlotte Observer.
