You see someone smashing a hammer into a house you’ve been renovating. You call 911 and run inside, where you find four boys, aged between eight and 10, vandalizing the house. What do you do? New York county man Jesse Daniels decided to put the kids in a closet until the cops arrived. A move that could now send him to jail with charges of endangering the welfare of a child. Daniels says, “I said listen you guys are staying here until the police come, period,” he says. But the boys and their parents tell a different story. They say Daniels threatened the kids with the hammer and grabbed one boy by the throat. The kids face felony charges of second degree burglary and second degree criminal mischief.
A Polish man was planted behind bars after he decided to give his girlfriend a bouquet of roses. The guy got into the situation when he decided that some flowers might help him win back his lady friend – who’d recently broken up with him – but he didn’t have the cash. He waited until the store owner wasn’t looking and grabbed the roses – in full view of thousands of TV viewers! Turns out a TV crew was broadcasting live from across the street!! The reporter on the scene didn’t catch the action either, but hundreds of budding detectives who were tuned in did, and flooded police lines with calls about the incident – leading to the man’s arrest. Well, it’s the thought that counts.
Ever get that awful feeling in the pit of your stomach when you see a flashing police light in your rear-view mirror? Well, so did one Florida man. Ryan Fletcher took off after slamming his car into another vehicle on a highway and was chased by cops but stopped shortly after the chase began. The officer put a breathalyzer device in the mouth of a “visibly intoxicated” Fletcher, who promptly began heaving and spewed it out in a torrent of puke, which drenched the patrol car! He was charged with DUI – the third time he’d been nabbed for that – and leaving the scene of an accident.
