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.
