Help me, I’m bloated! - Recently, a St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputy responded to an emer­gency call for assis­tance at a local Trav­el­ers Inn located in the 3400 block of South U.S. 1. Report­edly, a per­son who called in the emer­gency hung up the tele­phone with­out giv­ing much infor­ma­tion. When the offi­cer arrived at room num­ber 108, he observed a woman act­ing very erratic. Mary Ellen Lisee, 45, was jump­ing up and down while yelling incoherently. At that time, a man who iden­ti­fied him­self as her boyfriend was leav­ing; he stated his girl­friend was too noisy and he needed to rest for the night. At that point, police asked how they could be of help to her. She stated that they should not be there. How­ever, she did admit to call­ing them. The woman said she ate too much and dialed 911. Fur­ther­more, when asked if she needed med­ical atten­tion, the woman declined and she was arrested for dis­or­derly con­duct and mis­us­ing the 911 system. 

Boot ot the head - The case describes a 29-year-old Croa­t­ian man who came to the hos­pi­tal emer­gency room com­plain­ing of swelling and severe pain in his right foot. At first, he claimed he had stepped on a piece of glass while walk­ing on the beach. The man had a wound on the sole of is right foot in the gap of skin between his third and fourth toe. When doc­tors x-rayed the foot, they didn’t find a shard of glass but saw “an opaque object” that resem­bled a human tooth. So, they ques­tioned the patient again and this time he came clean. He admit­ted that two weeks ear­lier he had been involved in a fight with another guy on the beach. He had been wear­ing flip-flops but they flew off dur­ing the scuf­fle as he kicked his oppo­nent in the jaw with his right foot.

Regifting…sort of - Nathaniel Cole­man, walked into Marilyn’s Bou­tique in Immokalee, Fla., and approached the man­ager about sell­ing sev­eral pieces of jew­elry. The woman, whose name was not reported, asked Cole­man to excuse her for a moment while she went to the back of the store to call her hus­band to come to the store. The police report said deputies and the woman’s hus­band arrived at the store at about the same time. Turns out as the man­ager looked at the jew­elry, she rec­og­nized the items as her own.  Cole­man was arrested and now faces charges of grand theft, deal­ing in stolen prop­erty and defraud­ing a pawnbroker.
