Myrtle Beach, SC: Garrett Michael Hoover, 19, of Burtonsville, Maryland, was out at 12:46 a.m. and used a marker on his face to let everyone to know he was “down 2 boink.” He was arrested and jailed on charges of disorderly conduct.
Lakewood, NY: A man wearing white face paint, a green wig and the same red, menacing grin as Heath Ledger’s character in “The Dark Knight” was arrested for drunkenly harassing Applebee’s patrons in western New York, police said.
Aaron Chase, 24, sat at a Chautauqua County Applebee’s bar on Sunday, intoxicated and without money, and hassled people around him, the Smoking Gun reported. He refused to leave when asked, according to a Lakewood-Busti Police Department incident report. Authorities charged Chase with trespassing and issued an appearance ticket.
He’d already been kicked out of a bar up the road from Applebee’s for making gun gestures toward the bartender earlier that night, according to WIVB.
Muskegon, MI: A Muskegon County judge went above state sentencing guidelines to order Kurtis Peter Peterson to state prison for between one and 15 years for repeatedly having sex with dogs. “I fear for what he might do in the community,” the judge said.
Throughout the sentencing, Peterson swayed continuously, shifting his weight from foot to foot as he did at his plea last month. He said little in court, just answering the judge’s questions. Experts at the Michigan Center for Forensic Psychiatry earlier evaluated Peterson and determined he was legally sane at the time of the incidents and was competent to stand trial, according to attorneys for both sides.
Peterson, 37, pleaded no contest March 8 to “the abominable and detestable crime against nature,” also known as sodomy or bestiality. He was charged as a fourth-time habitual offender.
“There have been many complaints of unwanted and inappropriate touching,” the judge said, leading to his conclusion that Peterson poses a high risk of reoffending.
Hollywood, FL: Talk about a bad first date. Donald Bernard McGee Jr., 19, of Hollywood, is accused of pulling a gun on a woman and stealing her car after the two went on a date on Friday.
After their date that night, she drove him to a Wendy’s parking lot to wait for his brother to pick him up. Instead of waiting for his brother as planned, he pulled out a gun and demanded her to get out of the car. She ran to a gas station and called police as he drove off with her Honda Civic.
