Rudi Espinoza Accused Of Decapitating His Mother’s Cat Because It Was Evil July 30, 2015

B9317869915Z.1_20150625204756_000_G9RB6DPD4.1-0Rudi Espinoza, 24, has been arrested for working out any issues he had with his mother’s cat by lopping off its head.

According to reports Espinoza knocked on his neighbor’s door at midnight, dressed only in boxers, covered in scratches and blood. The neighbor called 911. When the police arrived Espinoza answered the door still covered in blood in his boxers acting strangely as if he were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Officers would note that Espinoza was covered in claw and bite marks. Upon further investigation the headless body of his mother’s cat would be found inside his residence. It was noted the cat’s tail was also broken. A kitchen knife found at the scene is believed to be the weapon he used to kill the cat.

When questioned, Espinoza told deputies that he had killed the cat, “…because it was evil and nosy.” It has been alleged that his motivation for killing the cat was to cause his mother pain,  which I’m positive he succeeding in doing.

I have to agree with you, Espinoza, cats are pretty evil and they can be very nosy. That’s why you have to get in with them so they do your bidding for you. I had a kick ass cat that I’m pretty sure had super powers. I also had a dickhole boyfriend who decided to be an even larger dickhole than normal and was later greeted with a squishy pile of cat shit in his shoe. If you know cats, you know they do whatever the fuck they want, this one just wanted the dickhole boyfriend to have a shitty day. Thanks, Super Cat!

Espinoza has been charged with two counts of aggravated animal abuse and his bail has been set at $100,000.

Crystal-KinderPolice have charged 32-year-old Crystal Kinder with two counts of kidnapping after she took two young kids from a local park.

On Monday afternoon, three, young cousins where playing at Parker Street Park when they were approached by Kinder. In a matter of minutes, Kinder had walked off with two of the kids – ages three and five.

“Unfortunately they weren’t supervised for a few minutes, and that was just enough time for her to come up, see these kids, and she carried one and held the other by the hand, and she walked off,” Lakeland Police Sgt. Gary Gross said.

The third child told a family member, 25-year-old Keith Campbell, that his two cousins were missing. Campbell asked others if they had seen where the two kids went, and he was pointed in the direction they had left with Kinder.

Luckily, Campbell located Kinder with the two children six blocks away at the Best Motel. Kinder gave the children back to Campbell unharmed and without incident. Police would arrest Kinder shortly afterwards.

According to Sgt. Gross, when police asked Kinder why she took the two children away from the park, she told them that they appeared unsupervised so she took them “to teach them how to steal and live off the streets.”

She also said that once she finished playing Fagin, she was going to return them to the park. Kinder was taken to the Polk County Jail where she remains on a $30,000 bond.


Thief thwarted by next-door self-defense studio May 12, 2015

A Wesley Chapel man is accused of trying to steal $15,000 worth of bikes from a local store.

Unfortunately for the alleged thief, he didn’t notice the self-defense studio located next door.

david-menzies-0508“Who would rob a store that has Hammerfist next door and they’re there?” said Bruce McCarthy, co-owner of Kona Swim Bike Run.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff Office, the person who would rob that store is 30-year-old David Menzies.

Investigators said Menzies broke into the bike store Thursday evening. At the time, people were training next door at Hammerfist Krav Maga, a self-defense and jiu-jitsu studio.

“Immediately me and a couple of other guys, we went outside and we did notice the glass and there was some noise going on,” said Jason Carrio, co-owner of Hammerfist Krav Maga.

During those few minutes, deputies say Menzies was next door grabbing clothes and expensive bikes. That’s not all; investigators say he even took a Jeep for a test ride and parked it out back to load up.

When he was out back, Carrio and other instructors ran around to stop him.

“We started yelling to him, you know, ‘Hey, is that your stuff? Are those your bikes? What are you doing?’ ” said Carrio.

Carrio says Menzies kept loading the bikes even after the confrontation. Carrio says he told Menzies he called police. Menzies then said he’d wait in the car.

“I knew as soon as he got into that car he was going to try and take off and the car was running,” Carrio said.

So the self-defense instructor took matters into his own hands and took the suspect out of the car and held onto him with jiu-jitsu moves.

“I just reacted, to be quite honest with you,” he said. “I just reacted. I just felt like this is the right thing to do.”

McCarthy says he recognized Menzies because he checked out the store Wednesday and acted like a customer.

In the end, it was perhaps a big lesson learned for the suspect.

“Clearly he didn’t read or he doesn’t know what Krav Maga and jiu-jitsu is but definitely a bad environment to come and try to break the law,” said Carrio.

Investigators say Menzies admitted to trying to steal the bikes and the Jeep.

It took three strikes, but a Brandon woman is finally off the roads after she was arrested three times in six days for DUI this past week.

Smug-looking man took bathroom break in patrol car

A criminal charge of “dumping untreated human or dangerous waste” conjures up thoughts of someone discarding hazardous human waste in the environment perhaps at the peril of an entire community or endangerment of wildlife.

urineIn this case, however, it was a puddle of urine left behind in the backseat of the patrol car of a Volusia County deputy who believes his prisoner may have done it as payback for getting arrested in the first place, an arrest report shows.

Tracy Chapman, a 49-year-old man who lives near DeLand and is the caretaker for his 86-year-old father, was arrested earlier this week for failing to appear in court on a misdemeanor charge, an arrest report shows.

Chapman was placed in the backseat of Deputy Morris Froscher’s squad car and Froscher began the 17-minute drive from Chapman’s residence on Rolling Acres Drive to the Volusia County Branch Jail on Red John Road. The arrest occurred just before 2 a.m. Wednesday.

When Froscher arrived at the jail and removed Chapman from his patrol car, he noticed liquid in the backseat. The floorboards of the car also were wet, as were Chapman’s pants, the report shows.

Froscher thought Chapman looked smug.

“Deputy Froscher after Chapman was outside the vehicle observed that Chapman had a look of satisfaction on his face as if he had paid Deputy Froscher back for arresting him,” Froscher wrote in the narrative of the report.

“It should be noted that Deputy Froscher was attired in his department issued uniform replete with all badges and accoutrements. The patrol vehicle had the distinctive Sheriff’s Office logo on it,” the deputy wrote.

Froscher also duly noted that Chapman did not have a medical issue that would “force him to discharge potentially dangerous and harmful urine in the backseat of Deputy Froscher’s vehicle.”

While the charge is a misdemeanor, Froscher called it a “nefarious act.”

Chapman, who posted $750 bail, could not be reached for comment Thursday.
