Lt. Mike Jones of the San Joaquin Sheriff’s Department says 42-year-old Jose Farias and 20-year-old Victor Farias met up with Jose’s ex at a Walmart in north Stockton under the pretense of making the marriage work. After she willingly got in the car, they picked up 2 priests. They then performed an exorcism on the ex where was drenched with sacred oil and “purified.” The two men are being held on charges of kidnapping, conspiracy to commit a crime and false imprisonment. It’s one thing to thing your ex is evil but this is ridiculous.
An Australian man who’d just crashed his car thought he could use his head to help the situation – by running through traffic smashing it against the windshields and hoods of every other vehicle in sight. The man, whose name was not released, plowed his Mazda into a VW that was pulled over on the shoulder of a busy highway, then went on a rampage, hopping onto hoods and head-butting the windshields or driver’s side windows of several appalled motorists. Cops eventually subdued the man and took him to a hospital for observation. Not surprisingly, they’re investigating whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
A Florida man was arrested for putting a little too much show into his personal game of show and tell. Neighbors called 911 to report that Stephen Van Alphen was causing a disturbance by traipsing around the street lifting what he called his “Clint Eastwood poncho” in order to show everyone the good, the bad and, especially, the ugly. The man, who was released on bail, explained himself by saying, “It sounds crazy and I don’t belong in the asylum. I was playing Cowboys and Indians in the house all by myself. I was the naked Redskin and the ponchoed cowboy at the same time.”
