A young 4-year-old boy took his mother’s car out for a little spin around Fullerton, before side swiping another vehicle, and heading into oncoming traffic. Eventually, the car rolled and then crashed into some trees, which led to the end of this youngsters crazy ride.
Police said this child was very fortunate and only sustained mild to moderate injuries.
The incident began about 4 p.m. when the boy’s 27-year-old mother stopped in a parking lot to use a phone near the Summit House restaurant. Somehow, the child got out of his car seat, got into the front seat, put the vehicle in gear and drove out of the parking lot, Goodrich said.
The boy drove south amid rush-hour traffic on State College Boulevard, where he sideswiped the other vehicle and crossed into the opposite lanes. The car rolled over and landed back on its tires as the boy kept going. He hit some trees near Yorba Linda Boulevard after traveling about a third of a mile, police said.
“We’re still investigating how this all happened,” Goodrich said.

Man Gets DUI IN Drive-Thru After Handing Over Taco As Proof Of Identification And Before Catching His Truck On Fire
Seriously? That may possibly be the longest title ever, but I sincerely believe that all of that needed to be included to show you how absolutely ridiculous this story is. I’m extremely tire and would like to go to bed, but feel I should probably discuss the man who may have had the most amazing arrest and DUI of all time.
Matthew Falkner, 30, should have had enough common sense to know that when you hand over a taco and the police are expecting you ID, they’re going to be fully aware of how fucking drunk you are. I don’t even know how the hell you made sense of that, even while wasted… and I have been extremely fucking hammered.
Unfortunately Falkner happened to pass out in a public place, the Jensen Beach Taco Bell and then while he was blacked out, in his car, sitting in a drive thru, completely wasted…his car caught on fire. Seriously.
The greatest part is it was this dumb asses FOURTH meal after downing some beers. The manager had to call the police shortly after giving Falkner his taco because he was holding up customers behind him while snoozing, taco in hand.
A deputy awoke Falkner and then asked for his ID. Falkner said no before reaching into his bag and presenting the officer with a taco. Another deputy clarified they were asking for an ID, not a taco. Falkner chuckled and began eating the taco.
Then deputies noticed Falkner had fallen asleep with his foot on the accelerator while his truck was in park. The engine had caught fire, and fire extinguishers were used to put it out.
Falkner’s blood alcohol content was between .227 and .225, according to a breath test. That’s three times the legal limit. He was hauled off to jail on DUI charges.
Thank goodness he at least got to enjoy his taco before going to jail and eating those nasty ass bologna with dry ass bread and cheap cheese. I spent one night in jail and was so hungry. Luckily Mr. Falkner had 4 meals before his little vacay with awful catering.

A young 18-year-old teenager, Christopher Johnson, wanted to meet his date at a McDonald’s in Sacramento. Only problem was he had his 5-month-old daughter in his car, and didn’t want to bring her in to join him at the child-friendly fast food restaurant.
Instead, Johnson decided to leave his baby girl in the car, parked a good distance from the restaurant. She was locked inside and the car was very hot. Another man who just happened to be passing by noticed the little girl and alerted authorities.
After the police arrived and broke the girl out of the dumb shit’s car (rather, her father’s car) they said she was sweating profusely and was obviously distressed.
Police arrested Johnson at the scene when he returned to the car with a friend. He is likely to face serious charges of child neglect.
His daughter was taken into protective custody.
Police said she had recovered from her ordeal. It is unclear where her mother was at the time of the incident.

This is absolutely disgusting and these women better get in some damn trouble for restraining this boy and then subjecting him to abuse for what appears to be, no reason.
This all took place in bedford County, Virginia in 2009. Timothy Kilpatrick was a young 11-year-old autistic boy and subjected to abuse while in the care of the bus driver whose job was to take him to and from school, safely. Luckily, both women, Alice Davis Holland (the bus driver) and Mary Alice Evans (a special education bus aide) have been convicted of assault and battery.
The authorities are still looking into evidence though for both Holland and Evans because it has been alleged that this was one of many ongoing attacks.
WSLS.com – Holland, of Bedford County, was sentenced to one month of active jail time and another 11 months of suspended time. Evans, of Bedford, received two months of active jail time and 10 months of a suspected sentence.
During this case, the two accepted a misdemeanor assault plea, and the prosecutor ironically enough dropped a separate felony child abuse charge. The family has decided to go after them on their own now.
These bitches are sick and should be thankful as all hell that this is the only crime caught on tape, otherwise they’d be sitting in jail much longer than a month or two. Ridiculous, beat a child, get caught on camera, and that’s all you get?

In Snellville, Georgia, a young 21-year-old man by the name of Stephen Daniel may be one of the dumbest criminals yet. Yes, this idiot walked up to the gas station clerk and screamed, ”Give me all the money!” While doing this, the attendant is seen smiling and laughing, most likely due to the fact that he saw the police officer, B.W. Brown, just behind Mr. Daniel.
“I know what’s going on, but he’s not dumb enough to do this with me standing right behind him,” the officer tells Atlanta’s Channel 2 News.

The president, Mr. Barack Obama made a visit to West Hollywood, CA today. Although I was initially upset about his visit, because most of the streets around my house were closed and a major traffic problem was headed my way, it ended up rather nice.
While taking a stroll down to CVS Pharmacy, my girlfriend and I happened to come to the corner where the president was going to be driving be in just a few minutes. He was leaving the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. and headed to the new restaurant Fig & Olive on Melrose and La Cienega. Here is a video of the President of The United States, his entourage, and I believe, the entire West Hollywood Police Department.

LARGO – A Largo man’s late night craving and demand for tacos landed him in the Pinellas County jail for misuse of a 911 system.
Bay News 9 obtained the 911 call through a public records request:
911: “Largo emergency.”
Kimbell: “It’s not an emergency. However, can you — can you put me through to dispatch? I’m at the Taco Bell, and I walked in, and I left my car on purpose, so I wouldn’t drink and drive. I walked up, they wouldn’t serve me. So, I’m at the Taco Bell at 137th and Walsingham and I just want some tacos. That’s it.”
Kimbell tells the dispatcher he has the munchies. He’d been drinking alcohol, according to the police report.
911: “What are the employees saying?”
Kimbell: “You can’t walk up, you’ve got to drive up. You got a get a DUI to get a taco. I got the munchies and I walked a quarter mile from here. Are you going to help me out or do I have to get arrested to get home? You know what I’m saying?”
911: “Well, we’re not going to take you home.”
Kimbell: “I want you to call the manager at the Taco Bell.”
Kimbell stayed on the phone the for about 11 minutes with dispatch until a police officer arrived and arrested him for misuse of a 911 system.
Kimbell makes a good point. Here in Hollywood we’re lucky enough to have walk-ups at some fast food chains, but here, there is no option at late hours, other than drive thru’s. If you can’t drive thru due to being intoxicated, what the hell are your options? Sadly, he’s now sitting in jail and will most likely not be provided any tacos. Poor guy.
When I was first hearing about this, I expected to find out the reason for the children being crammed into the van, but no. There is a video (posted below) which shows the children inside the vehicle, and then the empty and modified van.
Did the cops have no interest as to why the hell this man needed to take 66 children around in a van all at once? Yes, he did receive multiple tickets for the various motor vehicle laws that were broken, but why the hell did he break them?! I think so more investigating needs to take place.
