Hot-blooded: Woman smeared red paint on herself, called 911 September 23, 2014

A Flagler County woman is accused of threatening her boyfriend with a knife and then putting fake blood on herself to get him arrested, according to investigators.

sfl-flduh-assaulted-fake-blood-20140922-001Deputies said Emily Johne, 24, held a knife to the victim’s cheek and threatened to stab him in his sleep at the home on Brunswick Lane in Palm Coast Thursday.

Johne called 911 and said the victim was drunk and had beaten her, but when deputies arrived they determined the victim had not been drinking or hurt Johne.

Deputies said Johne had smeared red paint on her ear and chest and told them it was blood. She was not injured.

Investigators said Johne became violent after her boyfriend confronted her about naked pictures she had sent to another man and said she was “incapable of love.”

 

Armed man threatened Checker’s clerk over hamburger order September 19, 2014

A man was arrested Tuesday after he threatened to shoot a Checkers drive-thru clerk if he didn’t give him a hamburger, according to a report.

sfl-flduh-shoot-checkers-clerk-hamburger-20140-001West Palm Beach police said Dechazo Harris, 27, pulled up just after 1:30 a.m. on March 29 to a Checkers drive-thru, 1209 N. Dixie Highway. He ordered a meal at the speaker, pulled around to the window and wanted to submit another order, according to an arrest report.

But the clerk told him he would have to drive around to get a second order. Harris then pulled out his gun, according to police, and told the clerk to get him his second meal.

“Give me a hamburger or I’ll shoot you,” he said as he got out of the car, according to the report.

The two passengers in his car persuaded him not to shoot the clerk, so he got back in his car, got his meal and left, according to the report.

Officers were able to get Harris’ license tag number off of his car from security footage. They arrested him on Tuesday, and he is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail on $5,000 bail.

He faces aggravated assault charges.

 

No fear of flying: Man tried to get a free ride to NYC — inside jet’s wheel well

Buying a pricey plane ticket and standing in the slow-moving airport security line may not be the most glamorous travel accommodations. But ex-convict Demetrice Hall learned that there are worse ways to try to get to New York City.

sfl-flduh-greasy-barefoot-jetliner-wheel-well--001Hall, 32, of Orlando, was arrested Thursday after he burrowed his way under a fence into a restricted area of the Orlando International Airport then climbed into the wheel well of an airliner hoping for a free ride to the Big Apple.

Orlando police say Hall walked about eight miles from Oak Ridge Road to the airport then spent hours inside the wheel well before he finally got out and was spotted standing on the tarmac by a JetBlue Airline employee.

Hall was shirtless, greasy and barefoot standing near a light pole.

He told the JetBlue employee that he was an airline mechanic and that his identification badge had been stolen. When police arrived, he admitted his plans to stow away.

After hours of questioning by Orlando police and FBI agents, Hall finally agreed to show officials how he got onto airport property. As he retraced his steps, investigators found the hole Hall dug to get to the tarmac.

Investigators also found Hall’s abandoned black T-shirt near the plane and pulled his dirty white socks and a lighter out of the wheel well, his arrest report said.

The report did not say if Hall’s shoes were ever found. Hall was arrested on charges of trespassing, burglary and loitering.

He was booked into the Orange County Jail on $1,200 bail.

Hall was released from prison in July after he was sentenced to nearly two years for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

It’s not clear why Hall was so intent on making it to New York but with only a driver’s license that expired in 2009 and a pending court case, he will likely have to put the trip on hold.

 

Desmond Brownlee Accused Of Choking Wife During Argument Over Fried Chicken September 18, 2014

A 45-year-old man from Volusia County was arrested Monday after he choked his wife during an argument over friend chicken leftovers, deputies said.

Desmond-BrownleeDesmond Leon Brownlee, of Deltona, was arrested and charged with domestic battery by strangulation and tampering with a witness.

It started when deputies arrived to a home on Fayetteville Avenue around 3 a.m. Monday. A deputy reported to hear a female voice screaming from inside the residence, stating: “Please, 911, please.”

The deputy also reported to hear a male voice coming from inside the same window, stating: “Shhh, what do you want, us both to go to jail?”

The deputy then met Shey Alamo and Brownlee at the front door of the residence.

Alamo stated that she got into a verbal argument with Brownlee over not having enough fried chicken leftovers and the care of her mother.

Alamo stated the argument escalated, and Brownlee started to push her toward their bedroom. Alamo said Brownlee then “shoved” her onto the bed, according to the report.

Alamo also told deputies that Brownlee struck her in the face multiple times and choked her.

Alamo was able to break free from Brownlee to call 911, the report states.

The couple has been married four years, deputies said. Their child was sleeping in her bedroom on the opposite side of the house during the incident, the report states.

A Deltona man told deputies he was trying to release some built-up anger Tuesday morning when he fired off multiple rounds from an AK-47 rifle while walking around his neighborhood, Volusia County deputies said.

sfl-flduh-drunken-man-ak-47-20140916-001Frederick Wenzel IV said he was upset because he’s 28 and had to move back in with his parents, so he drank several beers before taking a walk with his firearm in tow, according to a sheriff’s charging affidavit. Multiple residents of homes on Joyner Drive told deputies they could hear the gunshots and a man yelling about 5:30 a.m.

Wenzel said he never intended to hurt anyone, but he had thought about shooting at the K-9 officer he saw looking for him, according to the affidavit. Children who had arrived at school bus stops in the area were told to return home to ensure their safety.

Wenzel was arrested and charged with six counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, using a firearm while under the influence of alcohol, open carrying of weapons and carrying a concealed firearm, records show. He was being held later Tuesday at the Volusia County Branch Jail without bail.

 

Woman bodybuilder dubbed “Little Monster” freaks out at party September 16, 2014

Dani Reardon screamed when police arrived.

sfl-flduh-bodybuilder-little-monster-20140915-001Then the award-winning female bodybuilder, described online as “jacked, vascular, & ripped,” cracked the windshield of her boyfriend’s pickup with a kick, police said.

Later, the 24-year-old slammed her head repeatedly into the cage of an Edgewood patrol vehicle as she was taken to the Orange County Jail, a report said.

Reardon — whose body reeked of alcohol — was charged with resisting arrest without violence and battery (domestic violence) early Sunday, police said.

The alleged victim was her live-in boyfriend of three years, Ian Schofield, who said he didn’t want to press charges.

Reardon, also known online as “Little Monstar” is a pro competitor for the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness, meaning she’s won at least one regional contest in a specific weight class.

That happened in November 2012, when she was declared a Class A Winner at the National Physique Committee competition in Atlanta.

“Danielle has very pretty lines,” the judges said, according to the NPC website. “She needs to improve her conditioning at the next level.”

On her website, Reardon expresses her love for posing and optimism for the future, saying she is on her way to the “big stage.” But she went to the big house after police got a disturbance call just before 2 a.m. Sunday in Edgewood, south of downtown Orlando, at a house on Oak Lynn Drive.

 

Homeowner knocks intruder out window, then saves his life

Filed under: Bad Luck,Bizzarre,Controversy,Dumb,Scary,Unusual,WTF? — floridaduh @ 12:58 pm

A suspected burglar is in the hospital after nearly killing himself while trying to break into a Port St. Lucie home — and the homeowner is credited with helping to save his life.

sfl-flduh-intruder-window-first-aid-20140915-001Port St. Lucie police were called to the 1600 block of SW Penrose Avenue on Sunday, Sept. 14 around 7:30 p.m. When officers arrived, they found the homeowner holding a towel to the burglar’s leg, trying to stop the bleeding.

Police said 25-year-old David Scott Boyd severely cut his leg on glass while trying to break into the home.

Investigators said Boyd stopped at the house while walking home from a friend’s place and started screaming and banging on the front door. When Boyd couldn’t get in, he broke the front window and tried to crawl through it.

The homeowner hit Boyd with a 2×2 piece of wood in an effort to stop him and protect his family. That’s when the homeowner noticed Boyd had a large cut on his leg and came to his rescue; putting pressure on the wound with a towel.

Boyd was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he remains in serious condition.

The homeowner told police he had never met or seen Boyd prior to the break-in and also told police Boyd rambled about his family being kidnapped and he had to kill the homeowner’s family.

Port St. Lucie police went to Boyd’s house and discovered Boyd’s story was complete fiction.

Boyd was not immediately arrested, but faces charges of burglary to an occupied dwelling once he’s released from the hospital.
