Accused Flasher Tells Cops: ‘That’s What The Ladies Like’ March 5, 2015

Hal Hamrick wanted to find a lady. So, the 48-year-old man did what ladies like. Hamrick walked around a Port St. Lucie shopping center exposing himself “multiple times,” according to an arrest affidavit. A witness told Port St. Lucie police he saw a man in a Miami Heat shirt and athletic shorts exposing himself. The man twice put his genitals out for view in front of Target, and once in front of Babies “R” Us. “Each time he attempted to use a trash receptacle as cover for the act,” an affidavit states. “Hamrick told police he was “exposing himself for the ladies.” “He wants to find a lady and they like when he does that,” an affidavit states. The guy’s got the angry masturbation face on lockdown in that mugshot.

ladiesScrew flowers, jewelry or cash. Hal Hamrick’s been on this Earth for 48 years and has learned what the ladies want. Cold hard dick. He figures they gotta at least see the goods before investing so why not cut out the middleman of dating and romance? Sure, he could have picked better spots to show off than Target and Babyies “R” Us, but true love knows no bounds One thing’s for damn sure, this guy’s got a permanent angry masturbation mug. I’m talking furious, spiteful, beating off feverishly when the woman isn’t home face. Best keep him away from the playgrounds.

Once Hal cheers up his defense should be that it just needed some air. Sometimes they need air, they can’t breath in there. It’s inhumane. People have been deemed innocent from a lot more for a lot less in the land of Florida.


Man on drug-induced naked rampage bit girlfriend

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies arrested an 18-year-old Jupiter man after he allegedly went on a naked rampage inside a house while screaming that everyone in the home was going to die.

leneve-ntDaniel Leneve is facing several charges after he and his 17-year-old girlfriend each took three tabs of acid or LSD.

Deputies responded to the 6600 block of Church Street and found Leneve and his girlfriend in a “daze” while swinging their arms at each other, according to an arrest report. Leneve ran toward the deputies and, when told to get on the ground, he complied by falling backward.

Leneve struggled while deputies attempted to apply handcuffs and screamed that “everyone was going to die,” the report said.

“He was obviously under the influence of an unknown substance and would not calm down,” a deputy wrote in the report.

As deputies continued to battle Leneve, the 17-year-old girl ran over and pointed her finger at the man’s face. Leneve allegedly reacted by biting down on the girl’s finger, causing a laceration that required treatment at a hospital.

Leneve, handcuffed and wearing leg hobbles, was sedated by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and taken to a hospital, the report said.

An unidentified female witness told deputies that Leneve and the girl were hanging out in the backyard when she heard a commotion. Leneve allegedly “violently” tossed the girl around, then walked into the house where he took his clothes off before smashing mirrors, glass and other items.

The woman told police that the couple has been dating for six months and that the girl has dropped out of school, become combative and is “out of control” since she began seeing Leneve.

Leneve is facing charges of battery, resisting an officer with violence, criminal mischief of $200 or less and child abuse without great bodily harm. He was released Monday from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $1,500 bond.


Trinity Bachmann, 13, Killed After She Got Mad And Sat In Middle Of Road Read March 4, 2015

Trinity-BachmannTrinity Bachmann, 13, was hit and killed by a car while sitting in the middle of the road throwing a temper tantrum.

The Apopka Memorial Middle School student was returning from the Central Florida Fair in Orlando with her mother, Janice Pedroza, 36, and a group of her friends. Bachmann, a rising member of the Future Farmers of America, was at the fair showing off her pig.

After stopping to drop off one of the kids, they began to fight over who was going to sit in the front seat. Bachmann became upset and walked away from the vehicle telling her mom she would rather walk the three miles home than get back in the car.

Dressed in dark clothing, Bachmann walked into the middle of a barely lit road and sat down. Her mother tried to force her off the road as a car approached, but they were too late.

Jackie Suggs who lives across the street from where the incident took place said, “We heard arguing going on and stepped outside. Somebody said ‘get outta here,’ and next thing you know, bam! She got hit and flew up in the air. It was awful. She was lifeless, right there, just lifeless,” said Suggs. “And her mom was just panicking, screaming, and I’m calling 911.”

The pair was plowed over by a car driven by 21-year-old Mackenzi Miller of Apopka. Bachmann and Pedroza were taken to Florida Hospital Apopka where Bachman died. Pedroza was treated for her injuries and released.

Responding police found an open container of Mike’s Hard Lemonade in the center console of Miller’s car. They also noted that she appeared to have blood-shot, glassy eyes and smelled as if she had been drinking.

According Sgt. Ed Chittenden of the Apopka Police Department, smelling of alcohol only indicates a person has consumed alcohol, not that he or she is impaired. Miller’s blood was drawn at the scene and detectives are awaiting the results. A field sobriety test was also done but has not been released pending further investigation of the accident which could take up to 2 months to complete.

According to the comments I’ve read about this girl, the consensus is that she was either a spoiled idiot or she was a child doing what kids sometimes do — being obstinate over stupid shit. What do you think?



Deputies stop Melbourne woman speeding up to 120 mph on I-95

A Melbourne woman was stopped by deputies in Indian River County Saturday morning, just hours before police began investigating the death of her father, who was found dead at their home, officials said.

Amber MalteseAmber Maltese, 37, appeared to deliberately strike a Melbourne patrol cruiser about 2:40 a.m. Saturday at the corner of Eau Gallie Boulevard and John Rodes Boulevard, Melbourne police said. Maltese fled the crash scene in her Toyota pickup and drove south on Interstate 95, officers said.

Other law enforcement agencies were alerted to Maltese’s pickup, including the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office. Maltese’s speed reached 120 mph as she fled, according to her affidavit.

Deputies in Indian River used stop sticks, a device used to damage tires on vehicles, as the pickup sped past the Sebastian/Fellsmere exit on I-95. The pickup struck the sticks on its left front wheel, deputies said. Maltese stopped the car near the State Road 60 exit, where she was taken into custody.

Maltese was charged with aggravated fleeing and eluding, driving while under the influence and aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.

At 8 a.m. Saturday, officers in Melbourne went to Maltese’s home to check on the welfare of her father, Alfred Megathlin, 60, police said. He was found dead inside the condominium.

Melbourne police spokesman Commander Vincent Pryce said Megathlin’s death is being investigated as a homicide. The cause of death has not been released. No suspects have been named in the case.

Maltese remained at the Indian River County Jail on Monday in lieu of $203,000 bail.


Man cooked meth at beach parking lot

A man has been arrested after deputies say he used his van as a portable meth lab and cooked meth in a beach parking lot over the weekend.

6875986_GThe Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy made the discovery while walking around near the north jetty in Nokomis Sunday morning.

He noticed smoke coming from a silver Chrysler minivan parked in the area, and initially thought the van was on fire. But as he got closer, they say 50-year-old Edward Moore opened one of the doors and got out with a plastic bottle and aquarium tubing in his hand.

A closer look revealed Moore was in the process of cooking meth.

The deputy took Moore into custody and confiscated the other ingredients, like Hydrochloride gas, as they are volatile and a potential health hazard to others.

Moore faces several drug charges.


Someone hates music videos so much that they shot two people who were filming one March 3, 2015

A shooting during a filming of a music video Sunday evening left 2 people injured, including one man who is in surgery and in critical condition.

According to a report by Orlando Police Lt. Darron Esan, a group was filming a music video in the parking lot of the Windsor Cove Apartments at 1458 Mercy Drive on Sunday evening. At about 7:57 p.m., unknown suspects fired toward the crowd from the south.

Two victims were hit, Esan said. One victim is a 22-year-old male who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and the other is a 28-year-old man. Both men, who were not identified, were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where the older victim is in surgery now and is in critical condition.

Esan said multiple apartment buildings and three vehicles were damaged by gunfire, but no other injuries were reported. Detectives are on scene now, he said, adding that officers have no suspect descriptions available.

Another shooting had been reported in the area of Colony Way, one street north of the apartment-complex shooting location. It was an area in which one of the shooting victims ran after being shot, Esan said.


Sword swallowers invade beach

From London to Hollywood and even right here in Panama City Beach, sword swallowers stole the show.

StoryHarley Newman put on quite a show in front of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Saturday afternoon to honor the ancient art of sword swallowing for World Sword Swallowers Day. Ripley’s brought back this tradition for the eighth year now and events like this happened all over the world Saturday and all at the exact same time at other Ripley’s locations.

Ripley’s was honored to have 3 sword swallowers, but swords weren’t the only feat performed. The crowd was awed as Newman performed many other death defying tricks to the excitement of a wide eyed crowd.

And get this; with the cold, windy weather Saturday, Newman said it’s actually harder to swallow a cold sword.
