Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (5-28-2016)

As mugshots go, this one is pretty arresting......& the fact everybody seems to be preoccupied with the mugshot of a pretty fool is pretty foolish! 

An Arkansas woman who has been charged with a variety of crimes in the past may now be guilty of stealing the hearts of people on social media.

On April 28, Sarah Seawright was arrested for failure to appear in court for a 2014 arrest for careless driving and driving without insurance.

The 24-year-old suspect was taken to the Pulaski County Jail and booked where she posed for a mug shot.

Seawright has since bonded out, but that booking photo has since gone viral since it was posted May 5 on "Ugly Plastic" a stupid Tumblr page devoted to the mug shots of attractive women.

Burritos can be filled with all sorts of things: beef, chicken, rice, avocado, veggies, and even methamphetamine. Yes, I said meth!

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials in Nogales, Arizona, arrested a woman on Friday for allegedly trying to smuggle a pound of meth into the U.S. inside a burrito.

Susy Laborin, 23, was trying to re-enter the U.S. via a pedestrian gate carrying what looked like a bag of burritos.

After a drug dog sniffed out the presence of drugs in the bag, officials took a peak.

One of the burritos had no guacamole, carne asada or pico de gallo, but it did have a whole pound of methestimated to be worth around $3,000, CPB spokesman Rob Daniels said.

After persevering through trying times, one college student wore her cap and gown with pride. 

Bianca Jeannot, a 22-year-old who attended the College of New Rochelle in New York, has been through a lot. She has experienced homelessness and also had to work multiple jobs to support and care for her brothers while attending college.

Recently, the student saw her hard work come to fruition as she graduated from the school with honors. 

“It is an accomplishment I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life,” Jeannot said. 

 “I wouldn’t change anything for the world, because it’s my life, and it’s made me who I am today.”

The 22-year-old, who maintained a 3.8 GPA in school, graduated with a degree in English as well as a forensic science certificate, the outlet reported. She was the first person in her family to graduate from college.

While these accomplishments are already impressive, Jeannot had to power through many obstacles to get there. 

The recent grad and her family spent about seven years living in homeless shelters. Following her mother’s death, Jeannot became the head of her household at just 18, and had to support her older brothers Michael Jeannot, who has Down syndrome, and Paul Santons, who has stage 4 kidney disease.

So while she attended school, Jeannot worked. And she worked hard. 

“I worked up to four jobs at a time, three on campus and one outside of campus,” she said. “I worked for marketing, I worked for the admissions house on campus, I worked for payroll, the IT department.”

In addition to caring for her brothers, she still managed to be active on campus, even founding an anime club and serving as editor-in-chief of the school’s literary magazine Phoenix.

“She’s the head of her household. She commutes back and forth, and she does it with a spirit of optimism and gratitude that’s rare in people even decades older,” Professor Daniel Smith said.

Now, fresh out of college, Jeannot is looking to pursue a career in animal welfare. She says that she’s excited for the future. 

“There’s only one way to look, and that’s forward.”
