Mystery ‘monster’ animal washes up on New York beach

A strange-looking creature has become the subject of conspiracy theories in New York.

A dead animal washed up on a New York beach last week, with people debating that it is either a dog, a pig, a giant rat or some form of mutant beast, reports The Telegraph.

The New York Parks Department have stated that it is a pig that has become bloated after being in the river, but it appears to have toes instead of hooves.

The animal was found by Denise Ginley, who photographed it after walking under the Brooklyn Bridge.

Mrs Ginley said: “We were horrified by it and we took some camera phone pictures and then finally we decided to come back with my camera and I got up the courage to climb over the fence and get closer to it.

“I definitely agree that the feet are not pig-like at all. No hooves or cloven feet to be seen it definitely had five toes on all its paws, front and back.”

She added: “I think it could be a monstrously huge rat, but it could also be a monster. A rat that big would pretty much be a monster anyway, wouldn’t it?”

An online writer later launched a conspiracy theory, stating: “I don’t think it’s purely coincidence that these unidentifiable creatures have washed up on shores around Plum Island where the government has their Center for Animal Diseases.

“I think these poor things are lab experiments the govt doesn’t want us to know about.”

However, a New York Parks Department officer said: “It was a pig left over from a cookout. We disposed of it.

“It was a roasted pig we threw it out. We didn’t count its toes, we just threw it out.”

Minnesota man charged with burrito assault

AUSTIN, Minn. — After tossing a burrito at a woman on Tuesday night, an Adams, Minn., man was charged in Mower County District Court with gross misdemeanor domestic assault.

Troy Hansen also was re-sentenced for a probation violation on a gross misdemeanor DWI conviction from July and sentenced to 180 days in jail.

According to court documents:

Adams police and a Mower County sheriff’s deputy went to the 100 block of Fourth Street NW in Adams after 9 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a domestic dispute. When they arrived, they discovered Hansen had allegedly thrown a burrito at the woman; toppings were still on her head and right shoulder.

The court complaint states Hansen asked the woman for a cigarette and got angry when she refused. He then dumped her plate off the bed and threw her cooked burrito, which struck her in the head. The complaint does not state that the victim was burned, but she said she was scared.

Hansen admitted he had about six pints of beer, was given a breath test and registered a .254 blood-alcohol content, the complaint adds. He was arrested for domestic assault. A review of his record shows a previous conviction for third-degree domestic assault in June 2009.

Teen Allegedly Offers Cop $15 To Buy Fake ID Back

When a cop takes away your fake ID, what’s an alcohol-desiring teen to do?

One Florida woman’s solution was allegedly to go capitalistic and try to make a deal.

On July 27, Officer Christopher Hernandez pulled over a silver Honda after observing it weave in and out of lanes and make a wide right turn, according to a police affidavit obtained by The Huffington Post.

After stopping the vehicle in Ponte Vedra, Hernandez said he noticed that the driver, Christine Stoudemire, 18, was slurring her speech and smelled of alcohol, the Sun Sentinel first reported.

As Stoudemire was fiddling around in her wallet for identification, Hernandez spotted a driver’s license from South Carolina located in front of the Florida-issued card that Stoudemire eventually handed over to the deputy.

Hernandez informed the allegedly boozed-up Stoudemire that he was going to conduct field sobriety tests.

The suspect refused, according to Hernandez. The cop placed the teenager under arrest for suspicion of DUI.

The suspect was detained in the police vehicle and transported to a nearby jail, the affidavit said.

Stoudemire wasn’t buying the charges, though, allegedly telling Hernandez that she’s driven “way more times like this.”

Upon later inspection of the possessions in Stoudemire’s vehicle, Hernandez alleged that Stoudemire’s South Carolina license is fraudulent.

The South Carolina license read that Stoudemire’s date of birth is November 22, 1989.

According to the police report, Stoudemire’s actual birth date is November 22, 1993.

But Stoudemire wasn’t giving up her license to purchase alcohol so easily.

En route to the prison, the teenager asked Hernandez not to take away the South Carolina ID, because “it took her months to be able to get the money” for it, the cop said in the police report.

Stoudemire then allegedly offered Hernandez $15 to buy it back.

The suspect was charged for a traffic offense and for third-degree fraud.

According to the University of Tampa, possession of a fake ID is punishable for up to 5 years in prison.

An allegedly drunken Ohio woman baffled local law enforcement officers when she tried to break into a county jail and demanded that she be arrested, NBC station WLWT in Cincinnati reported.

Officials said Tiffany Hurd was seen attemping to get in the jail by climbing a barb wire fence.

Tiffany Hurd, 36, went to the Butler County Jail Sunday Morning when deputies saw her attempting to climb over a barbed-wire fence. She was advised to leave by staff and refused and said, “I want to be arrested.”

A corrections officer saw Hurd lying near the fence earlier as he was leaving the jail after finishing his shift. Deputies advised her to leave, but she refused, saying, “I want to be arrested.”

The deputies obliged and Hurd was charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. She’s being held at the Butler County Jail, the station reported.

Mom left kids inside truck while at strip club

TAMPA — 

A mother is facing child neglect charges after allegedly leaving her two children, ages 3 and 5, inside a car Tuesday night while she went into a popular Tampa strip club.

Had it not been for the Mons Venus managers and a regular customer, Tampa Police said it could have been much worse for Brandi Jo Roman, 28, and her two children.

Mons Venus’ manager Jean Burns said Roman tried to get into the club a first time, but she didn’t have any money and went back to her car. She said Roman wound up slumped over the wheel.

A short time later “she came back in the club, she had gathered up quarters and dollars to pay the cover charge, and [the staff] took her in to get her in there so she didn’t leave with the children.”

A customer, identified as “John,” watched the incident unfold and realized Roman’s condition was not good. He ran across a busy Dale Mabry Highway and flagged down two Tampa police officers in the area.

When they made it to the club, Roman was still inside. Burns said “door was unlocked, open container of alcohol, truck was running. [The] kids could have got out, ran along Dale Mabry or threw the truck into gear — drank the alcohol.”

When the officers approached the vehicle, they found the children unattended and the 3-year-old was crying. Officers said a can of malt liquor was in plain view inside the truck.

Mons Venus owner Joe Redner applauded his staff and customer’s actions.  “My manager didn’t want her driving away with those children in the shape she was in,” Redner told Bay News 9. “She was drunk.”

“I am a mother,” the manager said.  “I wanted her to stay there.  I didn’t want her leaving, driving.”

The officers went inside the club and found Roman sitting near a stage. They said her speech was slurred and she showed other visible signs of intoxication.

According to police, Roman told the officers that she went inside the club to drink more alcohol and left the children watching a movie inside the car.

Looking back at it, Burns just hopes the children aren’t traumatized by the situation. “I hope as young as they are, they don’t remember that,” she said. The children are now in the custody of the state.

Roman is being held on $2,000 bond.

Overdose horror at city McDonald’s

 

A BEDRAGGLED drug user was left to overdose in front of children for 20 minutes at an Elizabeth St McDonald’s today, despite outraged parents pleading with staff to call emergency services.

The 26 year-old St Kilda man entered the family restaurant near the Queen Victoria Market at about 3.30pm today and began injecting with a needle near shocked patrons.

Andrew Kahn, of Adelaide, had travelled to Melbourne for a weekend away with his wife and children and had just visited the Vic Market when he saw the drug user – with his pants slipping down – in the corner of the McDonald’s.

”He came in and started shooting up, right near a family with kids,” Mr Kahn said.

”I told a staff member it was happening and she said sorry, the manager isn’t in at the moment.

”The guy was still there and started nodding off in the corner.”

Diners were further outraged when the restaurant closed its upstairs dining area during the ordeal meaning families had to sit near the drug user in the crowded ground section.

Mr Kahn said authorities were called when he approached staff a second time.

A police spokeswoman said ambulance officers treated the man when he became aggressive and was handcuffed by police.

He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Mr Kahn captured a photo of the man on his phone showing him in a delirous state crouched near the front window of the restaurant.

McDonald’s spokeswoman Laura Keith said: ”As soon as the manager became aware of the man he asked him to leave.

”The man refused and the police were called right away. The manager spoke to police twice on the phone before they arrived, arrested and removed the man from the restaurant. The dining area was then cleaned thoroughly.”
