BLOW BY BLOW DATE SUMMARY:
Hal, 36, sold one of the finest strains of OG kush in all of Montecito. He was on his way to drop off ten pounds of product in Los Angeles, when he pulled over in Sequoia National Park to relive himself. Trouble is, Sequoia National Park is federal Property, and a Federal Cop rolled up on him mid stream.
His was viewed as a Federal crime, and Hal went to the big house for 2 years. And now, here we were at Mao's Organic Chinese in Venice, where Hal was telling me about how he sells flame retardant clothing for his ex-father-in-law. I drifted in an out of the conversation but found myself mildly interested every time he said "retardant."
Then I would drift back to my sweet and sour chicken while I tried to think of a delicate way to ask if he still has access to the OG kush.
I couldn't. So we talked about the new episode of South Park and how Caitlyn Jenner is a hero. Then he asked me if I want to go roller blading this weekend.
For the pathologically noncommittal, conjugally obsessed, and the absurdly open-minded, Suzy gives FelonyDatingService two thumbs up!
Meanwhile, the quest for love continues....

Homeless Man Busted For Indecent Exposure Tells Cops ‘I Was Just Airing Out My Penis’ : A 50-year-old homeless man was arrested after he was spotted puling down his jeans and underwear outside of a store, “fluffing” his genitals and sniffing his fingers. Mmmmm…. smells like chicken…. Cops refused to believe William Gibson’s “I was just airing out my genitals” excuse and charged him with a felony.
Boward County Woman Arrested for Getting Naked and Causing a Traffic Hazard: At around 5.40pm (conveniently smack bang in the middle of rush hour) Tracy Mabb staggered into an intersection and starting stripping off. And once she started, she just couldn’t stop—going on to treat drivers and passing pedestrians to a full view of her “vagina and buttocks.”
Mother-Daughter Porn Duo Arrested for Prostitution: You read it correctly. 56-year-old mom Monica Ramoutar and her 22-year-old daughter Jessica are in it to win it, figuratively speaking. And they want to get famous by shooting sex scenes together. They’re known as the “Sexxxtons,” and while they don’t actually touch each other during the sex scenes, they do have sex in the same room, at the same time. Yikes. Unfortunately their dreams of stardom were dashed after they were busted for prostitution by an undercover cop.
Boynton Beach Drunk Dude Couldn’t Remember What Happened To His Pants: We’ve all been there… drunk, semi-naked, unable to remember what happened to our clothes. Well, maybe not, but Robert Allen Sweeney certainly has—The 56-year-old had no answers for arresting officers when he was busted, drunk, wearing nothing below the waist aside from a pair of sneakers. “What’s wrong, officer? I live right there, and I was going to get some pants right now," Sweeney told cops. "I was coming home from the beach and I realized I had lost my pants over there. So I was coming home to get a fresh pair.” Sure dude… Sweeney was busted for indecent exposure and an open container violation.
Largo Man Racks Up 120th Arrest With Bologna Stealing Bust: To say Richard Harvey Warren is a habitual criminal would be somewhat of n understatement. The 50-year-old racked up his 120th arrest after he was busted by cops on charges of retail theft and misdemeanor trespassing after attempting to smuggle a $2.99 pack of bologna out of a local convenience store in his pants.
Miami Cops Shoot Dead Man Feasting on Face Of Homeless Guy in Broad Daylight: “Face-Eating Cannibal” Randy Eugene was shot four times by cops as he gnawed the face off of poor unsuspecting Ronald Poppo.

Land O’Lakes ‘Zombie’ Busted For Assaulting Nudist Resort Security Guard: 47-year-old Kevin Fearn allegedly attacked a 71-year-old security guard after he asked Fearn to “step outside” following accusations he had groped a woman at a nudist resort. Fearn—who, for unknown reasons, was fully decked out as a flesh eating, living dead Zombie at the time—allegedly threw the guard to the ground and when a colleague came to the rescue, Fearn’s brother-in-law allegedly bit the poor dude on the arm.
Strip-Club Employee Strips and Masturbates In Jail: Cops spotted Lakeisha Johnson jumping fences and decided they should see what she was up to. When they approached, she started taking off her clothes and using vulgar language. She was then arrested, taken to jail…and promptly got down to her regular business of getting nekkid once again. She even offered to perform a sex act on an officer in exchange for her release. Can’t blame a girl for trying.
School Nurse Charged With Stealing Kids Prescription Medications And Replacing Them With Unknown Pills: The appropriately named Marilee Boozer was busted after a grandparent reported that her grandson’s medication had gone missing. The medication in question? Ritalin…. What else? And the way the 24-year-old school employee got caught was even better. Ritalin pills are blue…. so grandma was pretty confused when her grandkid began bringing home yellow pills instead.
Woman Arrested For Theft After Stuffing Seven Lobsters Down Her Pants: 30-year-old Nichole Reed confessed to police that she attempted to steal seven lobster tails (valued at a whopping $11.99) by stuffing them down her pants at Publix super market in Orange City, Florida in the hopes of trading them in for Chinese food or drugs.
Man Arrested for Drunkenly Sexting Police Officer: Paul Arnold Kirleis contacted police to report a suspicious vehicle. An officer responded on his department-issued phone.

Man Blames Pet Cat For Child Porn Downloaded On His Computer: 48-year-old Keith R. Grifffin came up with a novel excuse for the thousands of child porn images on his computer.

Man Impersonates Cop, Flashes Bare Buttocks At IHOP For Free Food: Matt Skytta had a genius idea to score some free food—impersonate a police officer!

Indian County Man Urinates Out Of Back Of Sheriff’s Car: When you gotta go you gotta go…. even if it’s in the back of a cop car on the way to jail after being busted for DUI. Devin Langford felt the call of nature at a very inconvenient time, as he was being escorted to the county jail, after being pulled over for speeding and then failing a number of field sobriety tests. But, Langford is a considerate kind of drunk, instead of pissing all over the car, he kneeled out the backseat and aimed his urine out of the window. Later, upon arriving at jail, Langford admitted, “I might be a little drunk, But I’m not a lot of drunk…..” His .141 breathalyzer test would seem to say otherwise.
Man Kills Friend Over Last Can Of Beer: We’ve all gotten into tiffs with our friends. But would you stab them to death over not splitting the last can of beer with you? Probably not, but then again, you’re probably not from Florida. 38-year-old Daniel Trent was subsequently charged with second-degree murder.
Man Busted With Meth Lab In His Pants Leg: Cops found more than they were bargaining for when they responded to an anonymous tip that Ian Freudenriech of Defuniak Springs was in possession of methamphetamine.

Man Arrested For Driving Naked And Masturbating In Attempt To ‘Entice’ Trucker: Looks like 22 year-old Cory Evans never learned how to court someone…properly.

The trucker reported that Evans was completely naked behind the wheel and seemed to be matching the speed of the drivers’ rig. He was later charged with indecent exposure.
Man Bites Off Neighbor’s Ear Because He Wouldn’t Give Him A Ciggie: Alberto Felipe is a man that doesn’t like to be told no. Case in point, after his neighbor refused to facilitate his nicotine fix, he bit off his goddamn ear! “He comes up, puts me in a bear hug and next thing I know he's biting my ear,” John Ott explained of the attack, which left him with his ear dangling by just a thin piece of cartilage—Felipe was charged with battery.

Man Sets Fire To Apartment Block After He’s warned To Stop Masturbating In Front Of Window: Kenneth Haskins, who suffers from a severe disfigurement after previously shooting himself in the face, did not take kindly to being told to stop whacking off in front of the neighbors at his apartment block.

Turns out the 21-year-old decided the bank weren’t going to repossess his house—he’d blow it up beforehand! Thankfully however, Tyler wasn’t the explosives expert he thought he was, and after managing to start a fire, he was hauled off by cops pre-blow-up and booked on charges of arson and using an explosive device.
Man Tries To Stab Nephew Over Undercooked Noodles: Richard Vine Newton is a man who knows how he likes his noodles cooked, and you better cook them to his liking, or else.

According to the police report, upon receipt of the offensive noodles, Newton started screaming and shoved his nephew in the face, before chasing after him with a kitchen knife—he was subsequently charged with aggravated assault and domestic battery.
Man Holds Up Dominos Delivery Guy At Gun Point For Wings And Pizza: When you gotta have pizza, you gotta have pizza….Maximilliam Xavier Mack wasn’t going to allow the fact that he had no cash stand in the way of his carb craving, he wanted pizza and wings, and he wanted them NOW… so, he waved a loaded gun in some poor Dominos delivery dude’s face and made off with a deep dish and hot wings. The Palatka man learned the hard way though that there’s no such thing as a free lunch… he was charged with armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Woman Busted After Calling Cops To Complain About Drug Dealer Stiffing Her: Daneshia Heller thought she was being ripped off by her friendly local drug dealer….so, what did she do? Well, what anyone would do in that situation! She called the cops! The 19-year-old called 911 to bitch about how a dealer ripped her off for $5, after she ponied up the cash and he refused to hand over some weed… Sadly for Heller, after cops arrived on the scene they discovered that the Fort Lauderdale woman already had drugs on her— alpha-PVP, a psychosis-inducing street drug known as flakka…. and she was promptly booked for drug possession and misusing the 911 system… no word on what happened to the rip-off drug dealer….
Mom Beats And Stun Guns Daughter For Not Cleaning House Properly: Some people just have really high standards when it comes to house keeping…. that’s not a crime, is it?

It all kicked off after the 54-year-old gave his pal an extra special Xmas prezzie he had brought along for him—a big, new, shiny crack rock. Sadly, his pal’s medical woes quickly worsened, after he managed to set himself alight, and burn down his hospital ward, whilst smoking the aforementioned prezzie—perhaps due to the fact he was attached to an oxygen tank at the time of lighting up.
Granny Tries To Hire Hitman To Kill Daughter’s Boyfriend For Giving Her Kids Lice: Pamela Vanorsdale was so pissed over her grandkids’ nits that she wanted her daughter’s homeless boyfriend, whom she blamed for the infestation, dead—and she was pretty specific about how, when and how. She enlisted the help of her former son-in-law to do the deed, promising him a gun, and ordering him to shoot Dylan Loveless, 22, in the head and chest before dumping the body in South Carolina. Her cunning plan was foiled however after her husband shopped her to cops—Vanorsdale was charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
