crime: October 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg A Zimbabwean man has reportedly told a court that he's in love with a prostitute who turned into donkey after he hired her.

Sunday Moyo -- who came up with the story after being charged with bestiality -- insists that his ass started off as a $25 per night hooker.

According to state media, Moyo told a court that one morning he woken up and was surprised to hear people accusing him of sleeping with a donkey.

He insists he'd paid $25 for the prostitute in the town of Zvishavane, and that she'd obviously transformed into a donkey during the night.

The 28-year-old added that he's still "seriously in love" with the animal… making the story like Pretty Woman crossed with something we once saw online.

275x250.jpg When Kevin Gaylor's girlfriend came home early and found him with another woman, he launched a desperate bid to get out of trouble. It didn't end well.

That's because Gaylor turned round and said his new acquaintance -- who he'd met online and asked to come to his home at 3am -- was a burglar.

The 24-year-old even called the police and reported the attempted crime -- all in the hope that it would get him off the hook.

But the stunt backfired when the truth came out and police in Colorado Springs charged Gaylor with a misdemeanour of false reporting to authorities.

Officers say that Gaylor had hoped to get better acquainted with his guest, but when his girlfriend came home he'd called and falsely reported an intrusion.


Bizarre dash-cam footage shows the moment a 128mph police chase ended with a topless woman wearing a G-string surrendered to officers.

The 28-year-old from Ohio had only been stopped when cops used stingers along the route 422 to disable two of her tyres.

She then proceeded to emerge from the vehicle -- wearing just fishnet stockings, a g-string and high heels -- and stagger across the road before surrendering.

Unsurprisingly the woman has been charged with operating a vehicle impaired refusing a blood alcohol test, fleeing and eluding, criminal damage, driving under a suspended licence, speeding and reckless operation.


When this man saw a giant object hovering in the night sky he decided to best thing to do was call 999 -- then he realised it was the moon.

Police in Hertfordshire have released embarrassing audio from a recent 999 call from a man who wanted to report seeing a UFO.

He started off by saying the mysterious object -- which wasn't making recognisable engine noises -- was flying above his house with lights blazing and that is was getting closer.

But a couple of minutes later he called again, this time to admit that he'd made a mistake and had been looking at the moon. Oops.


275x250.jpg A judge has ruled that a US man can never own more than 10 avocados after he was found to have stolen an estimated 1,000lb of the fruit.

Barron Stein is now banned from being in procession of more than 10 of the soft green fruits after admitting the theft.

The 44-year-old has also been told as part of his three-year probation he can not visit any avocado groves during this time.

Unemployed Stein is said to have stolen the mass of avocados to support his family and ensure they had food to eat.

The family will probably be pleased with the ruling as it could bean they finally get a meal which doesn't include guacamole.


A father from Michigan has been arrested after drunkenly making his nine-year-old daughter his designated driver… and then boasting about it on camera.


Shawn Weimer has appeared in court after CCTV footage emerged showing the child parking his van at a petrol station in Brownstown Township.

Once inside the station Weimer started bragging about his daughter's driving saying: "Nine years old. Nine! Gas, brake, listen, we're leaving, and she's driving. I'm drunk."

Police were called and soon pulled the underage driver over, prompting her to ask why and add that she was "driving good".

275x250.jpg A US couple have been accused of beating their 16-year-old daughter and forcing her to take part in a medieval-style duel.

It's been reported that the duo even made the girl dress in armour for the battle with her stepfather.

The pair are said to have fought for two hours with wooden swords and police say the stepfather beat the girl with a tree branch prior to the duel.

Reports also claim the girl was being punished for going to a party without the parents permission and that the couple are Renaissance enthusiasts.

They apparently enjoy recreating fights from the medieval era‚ and due to appear in court they could well be heading to the stocks themselves.


When a US police officer approached a driver who was sleeping at the side of the road he probably thought it would be one of the easier duties of his shift. it wasn't.

That's because the dozing driver was a former wrestling champion who woke up apparently thinking he was in the middle of a bout.

As this dash-cam footage shows, as Deputy Josh Barrett, a Greene County (Ohio) Sheriff's deputy, tried to wake the man he found himself on the wrong end of a flurry of punches.

Eventually the deputy was forced to reach for his taser and was eventually able to wrestler as he walked away. which we think would get him disqualified in the ring.


A pilfering penguin has become something of an internet star after being featured on the BBC documentary Frozen Planet.

The stone-stealing bird was filmed on Ross Island, Antarctica as his colony was busy building stone nests to protect their eggs.

As other males in the penguin colony were running off trying to find the right shaped stones, the cheeky penguin decided to swipe his from their unguarded nest.

So as soon as their backs were turned, he grabbed their stones and and scurried back to his own nest with them -- just call him Feathers McGraw.

275x250.jpg A would-be bank robber was forced to flee empty-handed when staff were unable to read his note demanding they hand over cash.

Thomas Love had apparently walked into a WSFS Bank in Delaware and handed over a poorly penned note, which the teller was unable to read.

When she told him that she couldn't make out what wanted -- like the scene in Woody Allen's Take the Money and Run -- 40-year-old Love stormed off.

After realising he'd been trying to rob the bank, staff contacted police and gave them his description. He was arrested shortly after.

275x250.jpgAn elderly motorist led police on a 27 mile low-speed chase when they tried to stop her for her unacceptable driving.

In fact Caroline Turner only came to a standstill when an officer ran alongside her car on a dual carriageway at 10mph... and tapped on the window.

Police in Essex say the 'chase' saw her veering onto the opposite side of the road before driving for eight miles on the dual carriageway and generally being rather dangerous.

When officers were finally able to get Turner to stop, she said she didn't know why she'd been stopped and added: "There is nothing to discuss, I'm going home."

Appearing at Colchester Magistrates' Court Turner admitted driving without due care and attention and failing to stop when asked by police.


A police officer in Belarus has had a more than lucky escape after being thrown from a crashing van… as this CCTV shows.


The unnamed officer had been travelling in the police van as it was involved in an accident with a car on a junction.

As the black and white van rolled over, one of the doors opened and the officer was thrown from the vehicle.

Amazingly not only did the rolling van somehow miss the cop and leave him uninjured… but he was back on his feet before the van had stopped moving.


275x250.jpgCops in Chicago have arrested more than 100 fugitives -- after luring them in with the offer of a free flat-screen TV.

During the bizarre operation officers sent wanted offenders invitations to take part in electronics testing for which they would be paid $75.

The traffic offenders, violent felons and child support avoiders were also told they would get to keep the gizmos they tested out.

As such many of the fugitives turned up to the address given and seemed very happy as they were greeted by undercover cops carrying empty boxes for TVs and video game systems.

Once inside the crooks even posed for smiling photos with the electronics… before other uniformed officers swooped in and made the arrests.

275x250.jpgCops say a recent crackdown on distracted motorists discovered one who was using laptop and drinking a cup of coffee at the same time.

Officers from Hampshire Police say another driver was caught eating a pear with a knife, while a third was writing down the answers to a quiz on the radio.

The multi-tasking drivers were observed during a five day operation on the M27 and M3 involving a hired lorry, two marked cars and a motorcycle.

In total 84 vehicles stopped due to offences being witnessed and 39 people were caught using their mobile phone.

Sgt Paul Diamond said: "This should send a very loud message out to motorists. If you are caught using your mobile phone whilst driving you will face a £60 fine and three points on your licence."
