Drivers pulled illegal U-turns just to catch a glimpse of Ashley Holton, witnesses said.

The 35-year-old woman was arrested on May 26 for masturbating on Highway 484 in Ocala, Fla.

A witness told authorities that Holton had slowed traffic for more than 30 minutes before deputies arrived, the report said. The witness also said that honking car horns only seemed to encourage her.

When a Marion County Sheriff’s Deputy approached her, Holton pulled up her shirt and bra, “exposing her breasts and bra,” according to the report.

Holton was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail. When an officer attempted to put pants on her, the report said Holton kicked and bit her. Holton described her chomping as “a love tap,” the report stated.

Holton’s alleged antics didn’t stop once she had entered the jail, where she “continued to resist the officers by spreading her legs, exposing her vagina and telling the officers to kiss her there and refusing verbal commands to cooperate,” according to the report.

Holton, who the report said may have been under the influence of alcohol, was charged with exposure of sexual organs, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.

A heartbroken young man sat in his ex-girlfriend’s room with a gun and waited.

Earlier Tuesday afternoon, Willard Newman, 19, had entered the mobile home of his 15-year-old ex through the back sliding glass door, police said. They had dated four years and, according to police, recently broke up.

Neighbors said he planned to take her life, her father’s and then his own. As it happened that day, she missed the bus home from school, and Newman is alleged to have taken only one life.

Willard Merle Newman of Waldo was arrested late Tuesday night by Alachua County sheriff’s deputies on a charge of first-degree murder and armed burglary on allegations he shot Ronald Lamar Andrews, 46, three times with a .380 handgun.

Wednesday afternoon, Andrews’ neighbors said he was a good father and hard worker. One neighbor said that when “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” rebuilt a Gainesville family’s home in 2009, Andrews donated the services of his contractor business.

About Newman, friends and neighbors in his neighborhood described him as a quiet, shy man. A hermit. He loved his video games. He liked to play “Halo” online, a friend said.


Something you don’t want to hear from your child: “I learned what a penis is at the bus stop”

Orange County deputies are on the lookout for a man who they say is flashing middle school children at their bus stop on East Colonial Drive, near Chickasaw Trail.

They said he has appeared there three times in the past week.

The students told their parents, who then called school administrators and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

WFTV talked to some of the students who have seen the man. They said he usually hangs out near a Dumpster.

“He was standing in the corner, trying to see if he was getting our attention,” said a girl who did not want to be identified.

After the most recent incident on Tuesday, a deputy went to Sue Ann Street and East Colonial Drive to investigate, but the man took off on a beat up bicycle before he could be caught.

Parents are now escorting their sixth- and seventh-graders to the Orange County bus stop.   “I come here every morning and stay with her until the bus comes,” said parent Claridel Martinez.

“We were waiting to go to school. We have this image in our heads and we can’t focus,” said student Seidy Cotto. “First of all, there are little kids here, and we are minors and he is, like, traumatizing some of us.”

Deputies said the man usually appears at about 8:30 a.m. Deputies will continue to investigate the ongoing problem.

Some parents said they have gotten a good look at the man and are meeting with a sketch artist from the sheriff’s office in hopes of catching him.


Men took gummy flavored vodka shots with teen, 13 … well at least they were gummy flavored!

Two men face felony child-abuse charges in Volusia County after deputies say they took shots of candy flavored vodka with a 13-year-old boy on Saturday.

An adult caretaker called deputies to a home on Harrow Avenue in Deltona after returning from the store to find the teen “not acting right,” an incident report states.

The boy was slurring his words, the report says, and was “in and out of consciousness” before he was taken to Florida Hospital Fish Memorial by paramedics.

Deputies found Geoffery McKenzie, 21, sitting on a couch inside the home, the report states, and he explained the teen had “asked if [McKenzie] wanted to ‘drink.'”

McKenzie told sheriff’s deputies that he agreed to drink with the teen, went to a local liquor store and purchased a bottle of Pinnacle “Gummy” flavored vodka.

After returning to the home, he and the teen “went to the back patio of the residence and started to take ‘shots’ of vodka,” the incident report states.

Co-defendant T.J. Schnack, 19, also admitted drinking with the teen, the report says. They drank about two hours, he told deputies, until the bottle was empty.

Schnack and McKenzie were arrested on charges of child abuse without great harm. It’s not clear in the report if or how they knew the boy or his caretaker.


It’s a sure sign of a heated election year in Florida — the old geezers are out spray painting political signs.

Filed under: Amazing,Bizzarre,Controversy,Dispute,Florida Nut,Really Dumb,Unusual,WTF? — floridaduh @ 3:42 pm

 Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Palm Coast man Tuesday evening after witnessing the man spray painting a political sign shortly before 8:30 at the intersection of State Road 100 and Belle Terre Parkway.

Steven Paskewich, 4 Rocking Lane, was charged with two counts of criminal mischief and transported to the Flagler County Inmate Facility. He was released after posting $500 bond.

Deputies said Detective Brian Finn observed Paskewich, 65, spray paint the word “Asshole” across the political sign belonging to Trey Corbit, a candidate for Flagler County Supervisor of Elections.

Detective Finn said he first noticed Paskewich standing next to a Corbit sign at the intersection of Belle Terre Parkway and East State Road 100 where the same word had been spray painted on the Corbit’s political sign. Finn then followed Paskewich to the intersection of Seminole Woods Parkway and East State Road 100 where he saw the Palm coast man pull out the spray paint and vandalize a second Corbit sign.

Deputies confiscated a can of black gloss spray paint and a firearm with ammunition from Paskewich’s vehicle.

“Nearly every election, regardless of whether it’s state or local, we receive complaints of political signs being vandalized. It is difficult to make an arrest unless a deputy actually sees the vandalism occurring and in this case, that is exactly what happened and an arrest was made,” said Flagler County Sheriff Donald W. Fleming. “We will continue to be vigilant in protecting these signs.”


Woman jailed after scuffle in hospital parking lot with a patient …… in a wheelchair!

A 32-year-old Palm Bay woman dropping off her mother for medical treatment faces charges she attacked and spit on a patient during a dispute over parking in front of a hospital emergency room.

Sharmaine Richardson was charged with violation of probation and battery after Palm Bay police reviewed the incident that was recorded by hospital surveillance cameras of a disturbance at Palm Bay Hospital,1425 Malabar Road.

Police said the victim, who was checking out of the facility and in a wheelchair after g knee surgery, was rolled out of the hospital Thursday by a family member to a waiting car when Richardson pulled up to the emergency room entrance.

Police said Richardson honked the horn and was acting erratically as it came up behind the car belonging the victim’s mother.

Police said Richardson cursed the victim as she demanded that the car be moved because her mother was having a medical emergency. Richardson went inside the hospital to get help for her mom but returned to argue with the victim, who had gotten out of the wheelchair so that Richardson’s mother could use it, reports show.

Police said Richardson first swung at the woman but missed, then spit on her and struck her in the upper chest before getting into her car and driving off. Police talked to several witnesses and reviewed the security camera footage before taking Richardson into custody.

Richardson, who was released Tuesday from the Brevard County Jail Complex after posting a $1,500 bond, will have a June 25 hearing on the charges.


Another ‘exciting’ event: Chaos reported in hospital after woman soiled gown; exposed herself

Olivia Davis screamed obscenities while at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce, refusing to settle down, according to Fort Pierce police.

The 48-year-old woman went to the rest room and emerged wearing a gown tied in a way that exposed her genitalia, a recently released police report states. Davis said she’d urinated on her other gown, and police told her to put the “contaminated garment” in her room.

“I don’t throw things, I drop it likes it hot,” Davis is quoted as saying during the May 19 incident before tossing the soiled garment in the walkway, blocking staff members.

Meanwhile, police told Davis to wear the gown correctly, and she “responded with further obscenities.”

Davis was arrested on a breach of peace/disorderly conduct charge.


I’m sure that this was something this girl ‘really’ wanted to see .. Man flashed girl at school bus stop

Deputies have arrested a 25-year-old man they say exposed himself to a 16-year-old girl last week.

Broderick Cameron Furlow is charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition.

The incident took place while she was waiting at her bus stop at the 1200 block of 26th Avenue West on Friday. A news release states the victim said “the suspect pulled up to the bus stop in his vehicle and started fondling himself.”

The victim reported the act when she got to school.

With a descirption of the suspect and his vehicle’s tag number, a photographic lineup was presented. The victim positively identifed Furlow, according to the sheriff’s office.

Furlow was arrested and taken to the Manatee County jail. He had not been booked into the Manatee County jail, according to jail’s website.

According to Manatee County court records, Furlow has a history of similar charges.

In 2010, he was charged twice with exposure of sexual organs and sentenced to jail time in both cases.

The first incident occurred on Feb. 4, 2010, when Furlow drove up to the victim who was walking with her child in a stroller, according to the filed complaint. Furlow made sexual comments and fondled himself while following the victim for approximately two blocks, the complaint stated.

Furlow was sentenced to three months at Manatee County jail.

On Dec. 12, 2010, another victim reported Furlow drove slowly next to her while she was jogging. According to the complaint, Furlow exposed and touched himself in front of the victim. The victim reported the incident, giving a description and the vehicle’s tag number. Furlow was later sentenced to 364 days in Manatee County jail.

According to court records, Furlow filed an appeal of the sentence, stating in documents he “should be given some kind of treatment to cure my sexual addiction.” The notice of appeal went on to state: “I (feel) that I will be in a worse position if I spend a year in jail … because my illegal urges will be a lot stronger when I get out, and I don’t want to commit an illegal sex crime.”

The appeal was dismissed, according to the clerk’s office.

Furlow is not on the state’s list of registered sex offenders.


’50 Shades Of Grey’ Back On Florida Library Shelves May 30, 2012

Filed under: Amazing,Bizzarre,Controversy,Dispute,WTF? — floridaduh @ 2:11 pm

A Florida county is putting the racy romance trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey” back on its library shelves.

The Brevard County Library System had pulled 19 copies of the best-sellers from its bookshelves earlier this month. County officials said the decision was made after they read reviews of the trilogy initially self-published by the author in e-reader form.

A county spokesman also called the books “semi-pornographic.”

On Monday, the county announced that “Fifty Shades of Grey” would be available immediately through the library in response to requests from residents.

Library Services Director Cathy Schweinsberg said the library was against censorship and was reviewing its selection criteria.

Public libraries in several states have banned to book trilogy, saying it’s too steamy or too poorly written.


Thanks for the ride, now: Man accused of punching girlfriend in face while driving to work

A Fort Walton Beach man is accused of punching his girlfriend in the face  while driving to work.

On May 14 a motorist called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and told  lawmen she had witnessed a man driving a gray Hyundai strike a female  passenger in the face. The motorist followed the vehicle into Destin until a  deputy spotted the Hyundai and performed a traffic stop.

The victim, a woman wearing pajamas and wrapped in a blanket, said she and  the man had gotten into an argument that morning at their Fort Walton Beach  apartment after he’d awakened her and demanded she accompany him to his job in  Destin.

She initially denied anything physical had happened, but finally nodded her  head when asked if the man had struck her. She said he didn’t so much as hit her  but push her against the passenger door.

The witness told lawmen she was driving on U.S. Highway 98 when the Hyundai  ahead of her began to slow down. She said she saw the man, who was driving,  punch the woman on the left side of her face so hard the woman’s head hit the  passenger window. She saw the woman cry and pull the blanket over her head.

The man did not admit to hitting the woman.

He was charged with misdemeanor battery and will report to court on June  5.
