TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO……
Needing a ride to her boyfriend’s house, a Florida Girl ordered pizzas to a neighbor’s house and then popped out of some nearby bushes and stole the car driven by a Papa John’s deliveryman.
As detailed in a police report, 14-year-old Josie Bigelow placed the phony food order early Wednesday to lure the victim to a street near her home in Lehigh Acres, a Fort Myers suburb.
As the driver walked to the front door of a residence with pizza in hand, Bigelow emerged from some nearby woods and hopped into the 49-year-old deliveryman’s unlocked 2006 Ford Taurus.
Bigelow was subsequently arrested about six miles from the heist scene, where investigators say she sought to ditch the hot wheels in a stranger’s driveway. Before getting collared, the girl twice escaped from a pursuing sheriff’s deputy.
AND THEN THERE’S……
A South Carolina woman was arrested yesterday for pouring water over the face of her sleeping infant daughter, an act of child cruelty that she recorded and uploaded to her Facebook page.
33-year-old Caitlin Alyse Hardy was collared Wednesday after the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office opened a probe into “disturbing images on a social media site.” Investigators allege that Hardy twice poured water on her sleeping nine-month-old girl.
Cops noted that after the second dousing, the infant “woke up coughing.” The video uploaded to Hardy’s Facebook page included the caption “Payback for waking me up all kinda times of da night.” It was accompanied by emojis of a baby and a smiling face with tears of joy.
On the video, Hardy–Aquafina bottle in hand–can be heard laughing as she pours water on her child, who was sleeping in a crib. She was charged with cruelty to children in connection with the January 26th incident at her residence.
OR HOW ABOUT……
According to a criminal complaint, an agitated Pennsylvania man tried to kick in a stranger’s front door to escape from zombies that were chasing him and an array of snakes biting at his ankles.
Police allege that Mitchell Pisarcik sought to force his way into a residence in Sandy Township in late-January. Pisarcik told occupants of the home that he was seeking refuge that evening from pursuing zombies and snakes.
Cops say that Pisarcik pounded on the home’s entrance with his fists and kicked out the front door’s window. As the 28-year-old began climbing through the broken window, individuals inside the home armed themselves with a claw hammer and a frying pan.
But when Pisarcik heard a police siren, he went to the home’s rear door and began trying to kick it in. Unable to gain entrance to the residence, Pisarcik–wearing a t-shirt and jeans in the bitter cold–eventually laid down in the adjacent roadway, where police took him into custody.
OKAY, ONE MORE……
A Virginia man who was reported to be wandering around without clothes last Tuesday morning was detained and charged following a series of events in which he allegedly smoked weed, bit his dog on the ears, and bit an off-duty FBI agent in the neck.
Upon arriving to the scene in Manassas around 8:35 a.m., a responding officer found the suspect, 31-year-old Cory Michael Phillips, “standing naked in the middle” of the road. The officer eventually used pepper spray on the suspect, who was thought to be under the influence of something, after initial efforts to detain him proved unsuccessful.
According to an incident report, “The accused then advanced toward an off-duty FBI agent who had stopped to assist the officer, and a struggle ensued between all the parties. During the struggle, the accused bit the FBI agent, identified as a 51-year-old male, on the neck causing a minor injury.”
Authorities later determined that Phillips was allegedly smoking marijuana at home that morning and “started acting erratically.” Phillips was ultimately detained and taken to a hospital before being transported to the Adult Detention Center and held without bond.
