Tuesday 7/24

Timothy Courtois, 49, was driving 112 mph on the Maine Turnpike with an AK-47 assault weapon, four handguns, and several boxes of ammo and newspaper clippings about Colorado’s Dark Knight Rises massacre when he was nabbed. He boasted to cops he had just attended a showing of the Batman film packing a loaded gun and now he was on his way to New Hampshire to shoot a former boss! Cops searched his Biddeford home and found a machine gun, several additional guns, and thousands of rounds of ammunition. “We don’t know what his true intentions were” at the movie theater, the police spokesman told the Bangor Daily News. The FBI and the ATF are aiding in the investigation.

 

Tonya Ann Fowler called 911 in an agitated state after she saw a copy of Bad and Busted and laid eyes on her booking photo from a prior trespassing charge. She didn’t make the call her picture had been posted but because she looked awful and wanted a redo!  Despite being told that the number was reserved for people reporting actual emergencies, she refused to cut the call short, leading cops to head out and take her into custody for disorderly conduct and misuse of 911. No word if she got her redo.

 

Police in Florida responding to a fatal hit-and-run involving a pedestrian questioned a driver at the scene, who denied all knowledge of what happened. The cops smelled alcohol on the man’s breath and got suspicious. They also spotted damage on his car and started to put two and two together.  They decided to do a little more research and got video from a nearby convenience store.  It showed that the man had recently parked there, stepped out and checked his car for damage.  Went into the store and bought alcohol and inspected his car again before driving away. Richard S. Schenfield, 21, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident with a fatality.
