Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead!


A Georgia man who is accused of impersonating a police officer in
order to get free continental breakfast from a Dunwoody hotel has
been arrested. Roche Harris was charged with impersonation of a
police officer, simple battery, theft by taking, and loitering and
prowling. In December, Harris went to the Staybridge Hotel and
attempted to eat the continental breakfast even though he was not
a guest at the establishment. When he was confronted by staff,
Harris allegedly threw hot water in a manager’s face. Last month,
Harris returned to the hotel and displayed a badge in an attempt to
pass himself off as a law enforcement officer in order to get free
food. According to Officer Tim Fecht, Harris returned to the hotel on
Sunday and began taking food again. Employees called 911 after
recognizing the 36-year-old and Harris was taken into custody.

A 60-year-old Florida woman was arrested and charged with
misdemeanor breach of the peace and resisting arrest without
violence after having an episode at the AT&T store in the Treasure
Coast Square mall in Jensen Beach because she was unable to make
changes to her son’s cell phone plan. According to the Martin
County Sheriff’s Office, Denise Gillespie began shouting at store
employees on March 1 because she “was upset she could not make
changes to her son’s plan due to the fact she was not on his plan.”
A deputy was called to the store and Gillespie was asked to leave.
The deputy also told Gillespie to “call corporate if she had a
complaint.” “I don’t give a [expletive],” Gillespie reportedly
responded prior to leaving. An hour later, the deputy returned to
the area of the store and witnessed Gillespie yelling and screaming
once again. After being asked to leave again, Gillespie said, “I don’t
give a [expletive] what you say.” She then shouted obscenities and
charged at the store and the employees inside. After Gillespie
ended her outburst by throwing a phone charger into the store, she
was arrested.

A British man has pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife after he
apparently locked her in a shed for chanting “Ding dong, the witch
is dead” about his dead mother. When she escaped from the shed,
Andrew Salmon, 42, punched his wife and twisted her breasts.
When Salmon’s wife arrived home on Feb. 6, he told her: “It’s my
house now. You are not getting in.” He then proceeded to lock her
in the shed. “When she came back that morning her clothes were
outside the house,” Salmon said. “I decided to lock her in the shed
as I knew it would really annoy her and that she would be able to
get out of a side door.” After she escaped, the rest of the physical
assault occurred. The incident had apparently been brewing since
Salmon’s mother died at the end of December. “She never really got
on with my mum or any of my relatives and when my mum died she
was horrible and offered me no support — she was extremely
unsympathetic,” Salmon said. “She would sing ‘ding dong the witch
is dead’ from time to time and didn’t even come to her funeral. It
was a really difficult time for me and my family.” Salmon will be
sentenced next month.
