Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 15th

Your Daily Loser - I love this headline: "If you smoke, don’t spit gasoline. It’s a rule." Words to live by! A german man set his apartment on fire by accident when he picked up a bottle of gasoline, thinking it was alcohol, and took a swig... then promptly spit it out. Right onto his lighted cigarette. The Story.

Jury Duty - Joshua Wayne Noe was arrested in Monroe County, listed as a Fugitive from Justice. I couldn't find an article explaining what he was escaping from, but I did find his Facebook page. My question is, doesn't he look like Lurch from the Addams Family?

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 14th

Your Daily Loser - Make a note, gentlemen. When you are asked to leave a bar because you are behaving badly, just leave. Don't copy Graham Brunson of Naples, Florida. Mr. Brunson decided to show his displeasure by urinating on the bar. The cops were called, Brunson ran, the cops gave chase, and... rearranged his face. The Story. (includes Mugshot!)

Jury Duty - Beer-Pong goes horribly wrong. Joseph Jiminez shot and killed his friend when dared to during an argument over a game of beer-pong. The Story. I especially like how the reporter takes the time to explain what beer-pong is.

Your Daily Loser, Midwest Divison, May 13th

Jermaine Askia Cooper "knew he was going to jail for a while” and wanted to get one last burrito. So he did the only logical thing he could: drive 90mph across two counties to get it. Read about the incident and the myriad charges he now faces at the Journal Gazette

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 13th

Your Daily Loser - A Palm Beach, Florida, woman says she deliberately rammed her boyfriend's truck with her own car to prevent him from driving while drunk. Even better, she had her two children in the car with her when she did it. She's been charged with aggravated battery and two counts of child abuse. The Story.

Jury Duty - A big name for a big boy. Mr. Franklin Santiagomontenegro was arrested for contributing to the deliquency of a minor and selling/using cocaine. The Story. I feel sorry for the arresting officer: "Sir, I need you to spell your name." "S A N..." twenty minutes later "...G R O"

Driving Drunk in Norway is Costly


The Norwegian courts base criminal fines on the amount of money the offender has. Recently a 49 year old gentleman from Kristiansand, Norway, was fined $109,000.00 for driving under the influence. The Story. Can you imagine trying to adjust such a system to be used in the US? I think it's a great idea but I'm afraid that our most frequent offenders are flat broke to start with.

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 12th

Your Daily Loser - During an argument back in October of 2006, Chytoria Graham picked up her infant son and swung him like a baseball bat, hitting her boyfriend, and fracturing the baby's skull (the boy survived). She was sentenced to 10 years in prison. So why is she back in the news? Because Chytoria is appealing her sentence and claims the public defenders who represented her at trial were ineffective. She's also just been released on bail.

Jury Duty - Some people just don't see the line between acceptable and not acceptable. Todd Marcum, of Salem, Oregon, is one of those people. Marcum was arrested for putting an electronic, shocking dog collar on his children. And not because they were misbehaving, but because he thought it was funny. The Story. // The Mugshot.

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 11th

Your Daily Loser - Talk about a wrong number. The Webster County, West Virginia, prosecutor received text messages asking if he wanted to buy drugs. Dwayne Vandevender originally thought the messages were a joke but after confirming the text senders were serious, he set up a sting. Michael Cowger and Anna Green were arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell. The Story.

Jury Duty - Eric Carmen. Yes, that Eric Carmen, crooner of 'Hungry Eyes' and 'All By Myself' was arrested for driving under the influence in Ohio.

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 10th

Your Daily Loser - "Honey, I can't find a babysitter to watch the kids while we go rob houses!" "That's ok dear, just bring them along." At least, I imagine that's what the conversation would have sounded like in the Santana household in April. Erika Santana of Queens, New York, had her two daughters in the get-away van when she was arrested, along with two men, for a whole crazy mess of felonies and misdemeanors. The Story.

Your Daily Loser Bonus For Mother's Day - It's a time honored tradition for kids to bring their mother breakfast in bed. But when this man let his kids try to cook breakfast, they set the kitchen on fire ... all the while mom is blissfully unaware upstairs. Oh sure, she heard "a commotion" but she thought the kids were arguing. Meanwhile, dad's rushing off to the hospital with badly burned hands. Remember Dads, on Mother's Day, only you can prevent kitchen fires.

Jury Duty - Either this is one of those things you do to yourself after a really long night of boozing it up with your friends, or if you hate yourself. Whatever the excuse, when Anna Clifford was arrested for driving under the influence, the mugshot officer had to make special allowances in order for her hair to fit into the picture. Her mother must be so proud. The Story. // The Mugshot.

Your Daily Loser, Midwest Divison

When officials contacted Kosciusko County Coroner John E. Sadler to pick up his son's vehicle after he was arrested for drunk driving, they also had to arrest the Coroner for drunk driving. Not exactly anything new or shocking about a father and son duo making the headlines for such a reason, but I invite you to compare the disparity of their resulting sentences. The Indy Channel

Your Daily Loser & Jury Duty for May 9th

Your Daily Loser - Where's the best place to teach someone to drive? A smooth, flat stretch of road without a lot of cars would be nice, right? And nevermind if that stretch of road has planes taking off and landing on it... they'll be sure to get out of the way. The son of the airport's manager decided to give his girlfriend a driving lesson. On the runway. His father has since been suspended. The Story.

Jury Duty - And you thought Post-It Notes were harmless... truth is, they are accessories to evil. Walter Healey of Troy, New York, used his Post-Its to record the social security numbers of the thousands of people he planned to abuse for his identity theft scheme. It's bad enough that Healey worked for the state's Tax Department. But I guess that was just good training for his future misconduct. The Story. // The Mugshot. (Healey's in the middle.)
