“Don’t bring a machete to a pork chop fight” October 23, 2014

An argument over pork chops turned violent and bloody between relatives Monday night.

635495145535312385-porkFellsmere police arrested Billy Wall for stabbing his nephew with a butcher knife two times in the abdomen. The two were apparently arguing over how many pork chops each person would get to eat.

Officers responded to the victim’s house on Lincoln Street just before eight o’clock. The victim, Charles Williams, came stumbling out the front door as police arrived. Wall was tracked down and arrested at his neighbor’s house a block away.

That neighbor, Carolyn Bibbs, told WPBF 25 News reporter John Dzenitis that Wall came to her door covered in blood and asking for a change of clothes.

“He was drenched with blood because I seen it all down his leg,” Bibbs said. ”I ain’t givin’ him no clothes to put on.”

Police said Wall claimed self-defense as he was being put in handcuffs.

“He kept saying ‘I stabbed him’,” Bibbs said. “He say, ‘He try to get a machete at me and cut me with a machete and I stabbed him.”

Wall was arrested on aggravated battery charges. The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office processed the scene and officers recovered the machete. The knife has yet to be recovered.

Family members told WPBF 25 News that Williams had to undergo emergency surgery because of liver damage. Thankfully, the blade barely missed an artery and Williams is expected to survive, according to his family.

 

Mom, dad and girlfriend turn in suspected ATM bandit

Filed under: Bad Luck,Controversy,Florida Nut,Robbers,WTF? — floridaduh @ 12:50 pm

Saying it was simply ‘the right thing to do,’ police say the girlfriend, mother and father of a West Melbourne man told detectives he was the hammer-wielding robber captured on surveillance photographs choking a 20-year-old woman at an ATM machine Monday evening.

sfl-flduh-girlfriend-atm-bandit-20141022-001Police charged 44-year-old Scott Patrick Deason with armed robbery and false imprisonment after family members spotted the photographs released to the media and tipped off detectives.

“The girlfriend called and the parents confirmed it was their son. It was very quick,” said Lt. Richard Cordeau.

“The suspect was asleep in the bedroom at the time. When they saw the photos, they decided to call. They just felt like it was the right thing to do. The girlfriend did express some remorse to the victim,” Cordeau said. Deason was uncooperative.

The robbery happened about 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Bank of America at 3003 W. New Haven Ave, prompting a countrywide search and even unfounded reports of man being seen as far away as Cocoa.

Police said Deason demanded the woman withdraw a large amount of cash and “threatened harm if she did not comply.” The woman, who has declined to be interviewed, started the panic alarm on her nearby car and the suspect fled. “He did not get any money,” said Cordeau of the West Melbourne Police Department. “The victim is physically okay but understandably upset. As he fled on foot she saw what looked like a hammer in his hands,” Cordeau said.

Police later released surveillance photos hoping the public might help identify him. It was those clear photos showing the robbers uncovered face that moved his mother, father and girlfriend to call 9-1-1 to report Deason as a possible suspect in the case. So far police do not have a motive for the failed robbery.

Deason was arrested at his home and taken to the West Melbourne Police Department for questioning. Police also added that residents should continue to be on the alert about their surroundings.

“As always, you should be vigilant about where you are. Fortunately in this case, the victim was able to activate the panic alarm on her vehicle…we believe that’s why he fled,” said Cordeau.

 

Drunken 500-pound man couldn’t fit into patrol car October 22, 2014

A 911 dispatcher calmly gathered details from the Deltona woman who claimed she was just attacked by her 500-pound boyfriend — a belligerent man deputies later said was simply too big to fit into a patrol car.

os-howard-hendrix-20141021“He is drunk and he is just acting crazy,” the woman said before the dispatcher asked for a description of Howard Hendrix’s clothing.

“Right now, he’s not wearing anything,” the woman said Sunday from house she rents on Jutland Street on Sunday.

“He’s nude?” the dispatcher asked.

“Yes.”

Hendrix, 45, of Apopka was in the bathroom, freshly showered and naked, when a deputy arrived.

He agreed to the officer’s request to put his clothes on.

But then Hendrix began throwing his weight around — again, a report says.

Deputies cuffed him but Hendrix resisted, refusing to walk out the house and falling to the ground, forcing a deputy to drag him out of the house. He also kicked a deputy, a report says.

“Hendrix was to large to put in a patrol vehicle,” a deputy wrote in a report.

A prisoner transport van was called in and used to take Hendrix to the Volusia County Branch Jail in Daytona Beach, said Gary Davidson, a spokesman for the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

Hendrix is accused of attacking the 42-year-old woman, including poking her in the chest, slapping her in the face and shoulder and spitting in her face.

He also punched a hole in a wall and destroyed a chair, she said in her 911 call.

Hendrix was charged with simple battery (dating violence), criminal mischief, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest without violence.

 

Boy, 13, stopped on I-75 driving a front end loader October 21, 2014

A 13-year-old boy was stopped Sunday on Interstate 75 while driving a front-end loader, reportedly in an attempt to travel to Fort Lauderdale.

sfl-flduh-front-end-loader-20141020-001According to a Marion County Sheriff’s Office report, the boy said he ran away from home Sunday morning and was looking for a vehicle he could take to South Florida so he could meet with a friend.

He came upon Magnum Construction at 4202 NW 27th Ave., Ocala, and saw a Mack truck, but could not find the keys. After searching the office, the boy got on one of the front-end loaders parked on the lot and started the vehicle. He drove through the locked front gate and headed down U.S. 27 until he got to the north entrance of I-75, according to the report.

The boy made it about three miles on the busy highway before he was stopped by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper.

The front-end loader was recovered by the owner. The piece of equipment was not damaged and no one was injured.

The boy was charged with commercial burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief. He was taken to the juvenile detention area at the Sheriff’s Office.

 

Man called it “extreme shopping,” women called it ‘flashing’

Christopher Durrell Glaze told Sanford police he was “extreme shopping” after he flashed two women at the Seminole Towne Center mall last week, an arrest report states.

sfl-flduh-extreme-shopping-flashing-20141020-001Two women reported seeing Glaze, 27, exposing himself at the mall Wednesday afternoon.

The first described doing a “double take” after Glaze flashed her. As she went to report what had happened, he walked into a Victoria’s Secret store, where he encountered another woman, “pulled down the front of his pants and exposed himself completely to her,” according to the arrest report.

Police interviewed Glaze, who eventually confessed to flashing the two women, the report says.

Glaze initially told an officer he was shopping.

Asked what kind of shopping, he said “extreme shopping,” something he defined as “when you go shopping and you talk to girls and flirt,” the arrest report says

When police asked if Glaze had exposed himself, he initially said he had exposed his stomach, but later admitted that he had flashed his genitals, the report says.
He was arrested on two counts of indecent exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor.

Filed under: Bizzarre,Dumb,Florida Nut,Interesting,Really Dumb,Robbers,Weird,WTF? — floridaduh @ 1:06 pm

Police have arrested a man they say destroyed toilets in fast-food restaurants across the city as part of a metal recycling scheme.

sfl-flduh-toilet-parts-fast-food-20141017-001Brian Rinda, 28, allegedly stole flushing handles and pipes, then traded the brass parts for between $36 and $40 at the county recycling center. Sometimes he would cause as much as $1,000 in damage when he broke the toilets, according to St. Petersburg police reports.

Authorities suspect Rinda in thefts from numerous locations in St. Petersburg, including Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Burger King, Publix, Subway, Cracker Barrel and Bob Evans restaurants and Albert Whitted Park.

Detectives used records from the recycling center and surveillance video from the restaurants to identify Rinda, police said. He faces nine counts of theft.
