Karaoke singer attacked after starting song

It could have been the Coldplay song "Yellow" that upset the patron of a Wallingford neighborhood bar. Or perhaps it was the karaoke singer who belted it out.

Employees at Changes, on North 45th Street, said they don't know, but the ensuing melee just past 1 a.m. Thursday was one unlike anything seen at the bar before.

As soon as the man on stage started singing about the stars in his best Chris Martin impersonation, the woman reportedly said: "Oh, no, not that song. I can't stand that song!"

Witnesses said her distaste for Coldplay quickly took a violent turn, and she leaped at the would-be crooner, shouting expletives and telling him that his singing "sucked," while expressing the same opinion of the song, according to a Seattle police report.

She pushed the man and punched him, all in an effort to stop his singing.

Seattle Police arrested a 35-year-old man for indecent exposure at Green Lake Park on Monday afternoon after a woman caught the man beating off in the bushes.

According to the police report, the woman hid behind a tree and called police while she watched the man masturbate. While on the phone, the woman told police she “thought that [the man] had some kind of flesh-colored realistic-looking phony penis strapped to his genitals.”

The woman also told police she recognized the man who, according a police report, had masturbated in front of the woman and her daughter near the Green Lake Community Center three days earlier.

Officers arrived and contacted the man, who produced a dildo from his pants told police that he only had it “to make it look like he did have a large real penis through his tight fitting pants.”

Police arrested the man and confiscated his dildo. The report says the man has a prior conviction for indecent exposure.

Bill would rename D.C. streetWashington Business Journal - by Jonathan O'Connell Staff Reporter

View Larger
U2 famously sang about a place where the streets have no names.

The Irish rockers apparently don’t know how it works in D.C.

A bill before the D.C. Council would rename a portion of South Capitol Street SE as “Taxation Without Representation Street.” And you thought it was hard finding your way around when it was South Capitol. Try sticking “Taxation Without Representation Street” into Google Maps or your GPS.

It’s unclear what portion would be renamed. Our guess: The stretch near Nationals Park, ensuring plenty of out-of-towners are introduced to D.C.’s fight for a vote in Congress.

The defacto D.C. slogan is already on the city’s license plates. The city approved adding the slogan to the official city flag, though no new design has been introduced or approved. Officials tried — and failed, thanks to the feds — to have it imprinted on the District’s quarter.

Council members Kwame Brown, Carol Schwartz, Harry “Tommy” Thomas and Tommy Wells sponsored the bill, which was referred to the Committee of the Whole.

Seattle Police have arrested a man who allegedly robbed Capitol Hill's favorite dildo emporium, Babeland, last Thursday night.

Yesterday, police arrested Charmarke Abdi-Issa, 28, for investigation of robbery. Police believe Abdi-Issa has robbed seven small businesses and one cab driver since October 28th.

According to Babeland staff, Abdi-Issa came in to their store around 9pm on November 13th and told an employee he was looking for a Fleshlight. When an employee opened the cash register to ring him up, Abdi-Issa allegedly pulled a gun and told the staff member to go to the back of the store.

Babeland's Assistant Manager, Status Causey, says Abdi-Issa left with about $175 and the Fleshlight.

Ohio 'underwear researcher' admits molesting kids
Thursday, December 11, 2008 4:57 PM


CINCINNATI -- An Ohio man has pleaded guilty to charges he fooled parents into letting him be alone with their children so he could sexually touch them while pretending to be an underwear market researcher.

Forty-four-year-old Ben Hawkins, of Springfield Township in suburban Cincinnati, could receive a maximum of 44 years in prison at his Jan. 29 sentencing.

Hamilton County prosecutors say Hawkins looked for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 16. They say he arranged to meet parents and children at schools, hospitals or at their homes and told parents he needed to measure underwear for research.

Hawkins pleaded guilty yesterday to nine charges of importuning and three counts of gross sexual imposition.

Woman Injured In Sex Toy Mishap

LEXINGTON PARK, Md. (WUSA) - A Southern Maryland woman was seriously injured in a mishap involving a sex toy over the weekend. The case was first reported on, and Saint Mary's county public safety sources confirmed the information to 9NEWS NOW.

The accident was reported to local fire and rescue personnel about 1:30 a.m. on March 7, from an address on Rogers Drive. The man who made the 911 call said he had placed a sex toy over a saber saw blade, and then used the power tool on his partner, but the blade cut through the plastic and injured the woman.

The victim, a 27-year-old woman, was reportedly injured and bleeding. She was later flown to Prince George's hospital center by Maryland State Police helicopter.

On Wednesday, Saint Mary's County Sheriffs released an update on their investigation. Detectives conducted an investigation which determined the injury was a result of a consensual act between two parties and no crime was committed.

Well, ok. There's this:

Under questioning by detectives, Fowler said he was ordered through text messages from Zaitchik to kill the Carpenters as an initiation into the carnival mafia...Before the interview with Fowler, detectives had discovered from examining Younger's cellphone that she had a Facebook page in the name of Frank Zaitchik, according to reports.

The kicker to this? Here is the Facebook page set up for ''Franklin Zaitchik''.

And here is a screenshot of the Facebook page for Frank Zaitshik, owner-operator of Wade Shows.

so less than an hour from me, about a week ago, this lady is teaching her 15-year old how to drive, and being new to driving, she is slow to back out of the space, so this 57-year old asshole lays on the horn, so they both get out of the car. she's pregnant, and he gets in her face and is threatening to hit her after she calls him a dummy. then an armed cab driver comes up to protect her and the guy tries to play victim real fast.

and the one who gets threatening phone calls and their house vandalized after this the mother?! That's probably the point where I should mention the aggressor was white, and the mother is Black, and this is Florida - and then it makes sense.

What I see and what I know is that there’s a hot air balloon, shaped like a whale—and for some reason, a reason I will must never find out—the whale has a toupee of skinny breasts dangling off either side, that apparently float upwards as the balloon descends. Australia, thank you for this gift.

Wilson, an East Wenatchee resident, turned himself in April 18. A detective told corrections officers at the Chelan County Regional Justice Center of Wilson’s proclivity to store marijuana in unconventional places.

During a strip search, another balloon of marijuana slipped from Wilson’s anus, according to a probable cause affidavit filed April 19 in superior court.

The "person" had been seen hovering over the water and then disappeared.

ah yes, the classic blunder of assuming a floating human shape must be a person wearing a jetpack
