Ronald Eugene Robinson, of Jacksonville, Fla., was indicted on federal charges of tampering with a consumer product.

A cheeky CVS customer is accused of a sickening scam in which he allegedly purchased boxes of enemas, used them and returned them sealed — leaving the polluted product to be resold to unsuspecting shoppers, federal prosecutors say.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office investigation found that he allegedly began returning the used enemas in April to a Jacksonville CVS pharmacy. He may have brought back as many as 12 enemas on multiple occassions.

A sheriff’s office report identified a CVS employee in June who said a customer had been returning the enemas to the store. He believed the packaging had been tampered with.

When he checked the boxes, he found “that all the enemas were used” and that “the unknown white male … re-glued the bottom of the box so that it appeared that it had not been opened,” reported thesmokinggun.com.

Teen dressed in sheet with fake grenade launcher leads to arrest!

By NBC News wire services

PHOENIX — Police have arrested an Arizona man who allegedly filmed his 16-year-old nephew walking city streets dressed in a sheet and carrying a fake grenade launcher, authorities said on Wednesday.

Michael David Turley, 39, was arrested Monday over the making of the video, in which an unidentified narrator says he aims to discover how quickly police in Phoenix would respond following the fatal shooting of 12 people at the screening of the “Dark Knight Rises” Batman movie in Aurora, Colorado, in July.

The bizarre, amateurish video depicts a person with a fairly realistic but fake grenade launcher walking around a Phoenix intersection in what appears to be a blue sheet with dark material covering his head and face.

Made eight days after the shooting at a screening of a Batman movie, the film was posted on YouTube and titled, “Dark Knight Shooting Response, Rocket Launcher Police Test.”

“Given this event, I wanted to run a little test here in Phoenix, Arizona,” the narrator says in the film. “I want to find out how safe I really am, and I want to know the response time of the Phoenix police department.”

The filmmaker claims it took 15 minutes for police to respond.

The first officer finds the filmmaker and the teen standing in a driveway. The officer calmly tells the boy to put down the weapon and the man to put down the camera. He didn’t draw his gun.

Officer James Holmes, a police spokesman, said Turley told the officer they were just filming a movie, and the officer took down their names and left.

After interviewing people who called 911 and later seeing the video posted on YouTube, police arrested Turley.

“It surprised us that he actually put that video on YouTube,” Holmes said.

Not ‘fun and games’
Holmes said the police response took just over three minutes from the first call, and a helicopter and SWAT team was dispatched as backup.

In our Hollywood style video, a man resembling a terrorist paces around a busy street in Phoenix Arizona carrying a rocket launcher until the police apprehend him. This film explores the response time and reaction of law enforcement within the Phoenix rural community. You will be shocked to see what happens.

Turley was charged with knowingly giving a false impression of a terrorist act, endangerment, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and misconduct involving a simulated explosive.

He is being held in county jail on a $5,000 bond. If convicted, he faces up to 45 months in prison, said Maricopa County Attorney’s Office spokesman Jerry Cobb.

“We take something like this seriously,” Phoenix police spokesman Officer James Holmes said. “It wasn’t fun and games to all the people who were affected by this. We don’t behave like this in this country to prove a point.”

The 16-year-old has not been arrested, Holmes said.

“The video told us what Turley was intentionally trying to do — creating a terrorist hoax for his own personal ideals,” he said.

Turley doesn’t have a listed phone number. He didn’t immediately respond to messages sent Wednesday through the YouTube account.

An attorney for Turley could not be immediately reached for comment.

student hospitalized after alcohol enema

A University of Tennessee fraternity is facing suspension after an alleged “alcohol enema” incident at the chapter’s house on campus over the weekend.

UT suspended the Phi Kappa Alpha chapter Monday for 30 days or until a decision is made about the chapter’s future. The fraternity cannot operate during that time.

The international PIKE organization said Monday that it also placed the chapter under immediate administrative suspension.

The suspension is a result of alleged violations to fraternity and university policies.

The potential suspension stems from an incident over the weekend that landed a student in the hospital with a potentially deadly blood alcohol level.

Alexander Broughton, 20, was dropped off at UT Medical Center around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Knoxville Police said.

Hospital staff told Knoxville Police investigators that Broughton was in critical condition and unresponsive when he arrived, with a blood alcohol content level greater than 0.4, which is considered toxic and potentially deadly.

Broughton has since been discharged from the hospital, according to UT Medical Center.

KPD investigators went to campus Saturday morning and found several other people, including three men, passed out at the PIKE house.

After conducting several interviews, investigators determined the fraternity members had used rubber tubing to give each other alcohol enemas. Police said the practice heightens and speeds up the process of alcohol entering the blood stream because it bypasses the liver’s filters.

The UT Police Department said this is the first incident on campus that they are aware of which involved that process. The department did not receive any complaints or tips about a large party or event at the PIKE house on Friday night or Saturday morning.

At this time, UTPD investigators said there are no signs that hazing was involved in the incident, but they are looking into the possibility.

Investigators are working to determine if Broughton was assaulted or made the decision to engage in the behavior himself.

Because the incident happened on campus, UTPD is now heading up the investigation. KPD will continue to assist as needed.

No charges are pending in the case at this time.

The university released the following statement about the incident:

“University officials are currently conducting an investigation into allegations involving the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity chapter and incidents that occurred over the weekend. Due to the gravity of the allegations, interim sanctions have already been imposed upon the chapter and will remain in effect until the investigation is concluded and final reports are available.”

The university has not explained the conditions of the interim sanctions.

Past PIKE troubles

This is not the first time that UT’s PIKE chapter has run into trouble. In 2008, the chapter was placed on administrative suspension after a hazing incident where pledges were allegedly asked to do push-ups on broken glass. Three students were later hospitalized with staph infections.

A member of the fraternity told 10News that the pledges were not asked to do push-ups on broken glass, but they did perform a “lateral ab movement” known as “bows and toes” on the bathroom floor.

The university’s Office of Student Judicial Affairs charged the chapter with hazing and it pleaded guilty. After completing its suspension, the chapter served several months of probation.

The international PIKE organization investigated and kicked out 25 of the chapter’s active members.

Woman makes nephew ride in trunk of Lexus to protect seats

An Edina woman has been charged with child endangerment after she allegedly had her 11-year-old nephew ride in the trunk of her Lexus so he wouldn’t drip water on its leather seats.

According to the criminal complaint, Susan Marie McCarty, 38, was charged after she admitted that she had her nephew get into the trunk because he was damp from going on a water ride at Valleyfair.

On the afternoon of Aug. 23, witnesses in a parking lot at the Shakopee amusement park reported seeing a boy climb into the trunk while two women watched. Witnesses gave police the license number of the car, and after being stopped by officers, McCarty told them the back seat console had been folded down so the boy could get some air.

When he said he was getting hot, she said, air vents were aimed at the hole, which was about the size of a piece of paper. Temperatures that day were in the mid 80s.

McCarty said on Tuesday night that, halfway to her car in the Valleyfair parking lot, she realized that she didn’t have a towel for the boy. She said she would never purposely put her family in danger and was glad no one had been hurt. “I didn’t assess the situation,” McCarty said.

The boy, who had been dropped off at his home in Wayzata before police stopped his aunt, told police that he had gone on a water ride right before they left Valleyfair and that his aunt had wanted him to ride in the trunk because he was wet and that he didn’t want to question her. Despite the console being open and being able to fit his face in the opening, the boy said, he was still hot and would have rather sat in the back seat.

The boy’s 14-year-old sister told police that he had seemed excited about riding in the trunk. She said she and her grandmother had “somewhat of an uneasy feeling” about the boy riding in the trunk, but they, too, didn’t question her aunt.

If convicted, McCarty could face as much as a year in prison and $3,000 in fines.

Daycare Employees Arrested For Encouraging Toddlers To Fight

DOVER, Del. (CBS) – Three daycare employees were arrested on Monday for allegedly watching and encouraging toddlers to fight each other while under their care.

According to Dover Police, three employees from the Hands of Our Future Daycare in Delaware were arrested after a cell phone video showed employees watching and encouraging two 3-year-olds fight each other.

Tiana Harris, 19, Lisa Parker, 47, and Estefania Myers, 21, were charged with Assault, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Reckless Endangering and Conspiracy for the incident, which occurred in March of 2012 and was captured on cell phone video.

In the video, police say one child can be heard crying and yelling, ‘He’s pinching me,’ while a daycare worker responds, ‘No pinching, only punching.’”

“Clearly one of the children is crying and does not want to continue on and he is pushed back into the fray by one of the adults,” Dover Police Captain Tim Stump said.

Cristyl Slack says her four-year-old daughter was in the room when the fight happened in March.

“That pissed me off just because I feel if my daughter is around anything I should have known that day,” Slack said.

The fight video is not being shown to parents or the public because police say it is evidence.

“I can’t ever believe in a million years. I mean I would have to see the proof to believe it,” parent Amy Bickling said.

Hands of Our Future Daycare, located at 868 S. State St., has had its City of Dover Business License suspended pending a hearing.

The Dover Police Department arranged for a meeting Monday night for parents or legal guardians of the daycare’s children to answer questions and help parents find new daycare arrangements.

Efforts to reach the daycare owner were not successful.

3-year-old boy found sitting alone in a store aisle at night

FORT PIERCE — The crying of a 3-year-old boy sitting alone in a store aisle at night finally attracted a clerk’s attention.

The toddler was so upset, he could only ask “where was his mommy,” according to a police report. He couldn’t remember his mother’s last name and a call over the store’s public address system drew no response. A search outside the Deal’s Dollar Tree, in the 400 block of Georgia Avenue, also was unsuccessful.

Finally an hour later, at 9:44 p.m. Tuesday, a gold-colored minivan drove up with the mother and grandmother as police were at the store. The mother “seemed confused when approached about the whereabouts of her child,” according to the police report. “She said she thought he was in the vehicle at the time she left the store.

“But couldn’t find him when they got home,” the report states.

Yet no one called 911, police said, and she allegedly couldn’t explain hourlong absence.

The child was turned over to the grandmother. The mother, Philleana Peak, 30, of 1200 block of Wyoming Drive, Fort Pierce, was arrested on charges of child neglect and possession of marijuana. She was in the St. Lucie County Jail in lieu of a $6,250 bail.

Police notified the Florida Department of Children and Families of the incident.
