Thursday 8/23

DeLand, FL police said the man, described as about 6 feet tall with short blond hair and side­burns, bor­rowed a pen at a Dunkin Donuts shortly before 8:30 a.m. which doesn’t seem so out of the ordi­nary but he used it to write the note he used to rob the shop. Police have released secu­rity cam­era footage of the man, who was last seen wear­ing a white T-short, tan pants and white shoes.

Man­agers of a Fam­ily Dol­lar Store said they attempted to stop Treila Woods, before she left the store, sus­pect­ing her of shoplift­ing. The alleged dri­ver of her get­away car, Sean Foxx, watched her attempt to leave through a bro­ken and unmov­ing door, and came inside to help her, police said.
“He goes in through one of the open doors. He threat­ens the man­agers, telling them he’ll be back to get them because they were going to hurt his girl­friend,” said Sgt. Daniel Alonzo of the San Anto­nio Police Depart­ment Rob­bery Task Force. Foxx and Woods were arrested a short time later, after which Foxx pro­posed mar­riage and Woods accepted.

A Florida man crashed his car in a drunken stu­por, then pro­ceeded to hold off cops by mak­ing a call to his lawyer. Joseph Jef­frey Hol­l­i­day was unable to stand up when offi­cers approached him, and repeat­edly refused requests to take a field sobri­ety test. He told the deputies that he wanted to speak to his lawyer first, then pulled out his pack of cig­a­rettes and made an unsuc­cess­ful attempt to make the phone call.  While he didn’t make a state­ment directly to the boys in blue, a recorder in the cruiser cap­tured Hol­l­i­day spon­ta­neously say­ing, “You shouldn’t drink when you go out. If I would have been sober I wouldn’t be in hand­cuffs right now.”
