Man arrested in Safeway bathroom

Examining-Stupidity2According to El Sobrante police a man was arrested on numerous charges last weekend after showing some bizarre behavior, along with poor judgment.

It all happened at the Safeway supermarket on San Pablo Avenue early Sunday morning, when police were summoned for a routine shoplifting call.

After taking a woman into custody for stealing some batteries and fleeing the scene, officers were informed about a second incident.

A woman using the restroom said she had smelled smoke and noticed a pornographic magazine on the floor.

Officers investigated and discovered a 32-year-old man in the men’s restroom reading a pornographic magazine and smoking a cocaine-laced marijuana cigarette. But that’s not all, he also had a small child with him.

The brainiac readily admitted to being in the women’s restroom and smoking the pot. Officers determined the man was high and arrested him for being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession.

As they were arresting this wonderful specimen of an idiot, he admitted to stealing a bottle of soda from the store.

No word on whether or not the child was his, or why he had the child in the bathroom.

Actor Jason London arrested – takes dump in squad car

reg_634.london.cm.12913_copyTMZ is reporting this afternoon that actor Jason London was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct outside a Scottsdale, Ariz., bar.

It appears the 40 year-old actor sneezed on a patron and followed that up by slugging him.

According to the police report obtained by E! News, London started cursing at paramedics who were trying to assist him with the injuries he sustained during the altercation inside the Martini Ranch bar.

In London’s mug shot it looks like he probably should’ve refrained from sneezing on his fellow patrons.

The police report also states that London attempted to shove an officer, who responded by kneeing the actor in the outer right thigh, to which London replied, “F–k you! You won’t do s–t for me, you f–king hillbilly!”

The report continues to describe the ride to the station with London berating the officers saying, “Guess what, f—-t? I f–king love this! I f–king own you guys so hard. I’m rich and a motherf–king famous actor! F–king look me up, b–ch!”

That’s when London leaned to his left in the back seat of the squad car and proceeded to  defecated in his pants, telling the officer, “I told you that I’m happy as s–t!”

His wife Sophia confirmed he’s a jerk when he drinks, as the report quotes her during a phone call from the police station that her husband was in jail. She replied, “I know he’s an a–hole when he drinks.”

London has taken to Twitter with a number of tweets denying TMZ’s account of what happened:

“Guys, the TMZ report is a total f–king lie. I got jumped by three 250 pound bouncers. They knocked me out and beat me for several minutes.

“I would never say or do the crap they are reporting. Have faith in me. The truth will come out and you will see.

“Some guy thought I was hitting on his girl and had me jumped. My wife was in the next room, had no idea what even happened. I hate Arizona.

“Wait till you see the real pictures. I have a right orbital fracture and sinus fracture. The truth will win.”

Let’s hope this ‘motherf–king famous actor,’ understands that he needs a little help from his friends.

I hear Lindsay Lohan’s attorney is available.

Jackson, New jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure won’t be hosting metal concerts anytime in the near future, thanks to some idiot named Ronnie Radke.

For all you metal-heads out there thinking to yourself – Hey, I know that name.

You should, he was one of the original band members and lead singer for Escape the Fate, who just recently played at the Aftershock Music Festival in Sacramento, CA – minus Radke (read the review).

While performing in his latest band Falling In Reverse at Six Flag’s FestEVIL, the 28 year old Radke pulled an insane stunt aimed at his fans. At the end of his set, while singing “The Drug in Me is You,” (which he penned while in the pen) the 28 year old made the brilliant decision to throw a mic stand into the audience. Not just one, but three mic stands in all.

He didn’t just toss them out like a drummer throwing their drumsticks out to pleading fans, no he hurled them into the crowd injuring a couple of concert goers. After his little show of machismo and all things stupid, Radke finished with, “Thank you! Good night!”

Brilliant!

Afterwards local authorities charged Radke with simple assault and aggravated assault. He was released on $25,000 bail.

“This was the first metal show that we’ve ever had, and will be the last,” Kristin Siebeneicher, spokeswoman for the theme park, told the Asbury Park Press. “We have no plans to host another metal show.”

Current lead singer for Escape the Fate Craig Mabbitt (L) and TJ Bell

“This performer was completely reckless,” said Siebeneicher. “He had complete disregard for the safety of his fans. His actions were totally unacceptable. It’s not the type of entertainment that we want to be producing.”

This isn’t Radke’s first brush with the law.

Radke was kicked out of Escape the Fate back in 2008 when the band wanted to go on an international tour, but Radke couldn’t leave the country due to being on probation for his involvement in a fatal shooting. Radke did not shoot the victim, but was charged with battery and sentenced to five years’ probation.

To make matters worse, in 2008 Radke was arrested for not checking in with his parole officer, leading to a 2 year prison term, making it kind of difficult to go on tour with Escape the Fate.

I understand the liability issues, but with over 20 bands performing at FestEvil, it’s disappointing to see the park banning all metal acts, due to the actions of one dumbass.

 

WTF Department: Cher Lloyd booed offstage

Cher Lloyd

Cher Lloyd – Click for more images

X-factor alum Cher Lloyd was recently booed off stage in London, at the annual V Festival at Hylands Park in Chelmsford.

Apparently the 19 year old Lloyd was only two songs into her set when the booing started. She left the stage in tears after someone threw a bottle that contained urine at the “‘Swagger Jagger’ singer.

You read that right ““ a bottle of friggin urine. WTF?

Come on people! Why the hell would someone throw a bottle of urine at somebody like Cher Lloyd, who is all of 5 foot nothing. Actually, what would make someone throw a bottle of urine at anyone?

The bigger question is why the hell was someone toting around a bottle of urine?

After a few minutes Lloyd came back out and told the crowd;

“It’s hard enough being up here, but it’s not nice having bottles of piss chucked at you.”

Taking to Twitter after the show Lloyd wrote, “Thank you so much for all the nice messages, shame that a couple of people had to ruin it. Unfortunately a glass bottle got thrown at me on stage. Tomorrow is another day, big love to my brats!!!”

Her fans are referred to as Brats.

Last year Lloyd admitted that she was afraid to leave her house due to the amount of negative criticism she was receiving. At the time she was quoted as saying, “I know people think I’m a bitch but they don’t realize I put on a massive front. When I go home and close the door I break down, phone my mum and dad and cry. It got to the point when I thought ‘Why am I doing this?'”

This year’s V Festival was headlined by The Stone Roses and The Killers, with other bands including Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Enemy, Example, Miles Kane and Frank Turner.

To whoever threw the bottle of urine ““ Piss off you wanker!

 

Michael Jackson + BestOnlineCasino = Hair Ball?

Ever since Michael Jackson died, born-again fans have been coming out of the wood work to show their love and affection.

Prior to his death nobody wanted anything to do with him due to his “legal” troubles.

The Jackson estate, and profiteers alike, have all flocked to grab a piece of Michael in order to make a buck. And when I say a piece of Michael – I’m not joking.

BestOnlinecasino.com (formerly OnlineGamblingPal.com) is betting on Michael Jackson to rock and ‘roll’ again.

You see these forward thinking people at BestOnlineCasino had a genius moment (tongue-in-cheek).  While these wonderful folks may not have him rocking and rolling, they will have him rolling and bouncing.

Last December, just after their genius moment, BestOnlineCasino was able to purchase, at auction, some of Michael’s hair for a whopping $10,871.

WTF!? Was someone actually collecting his hair? Who was it, Pepsi?

Ok, so to make a short story long, BestOnlineCasino took these precious locks of hair and transformed them into, of all things, a roulette ball. The best part is they actually made a video of the making of the ball, and it was at made at a “secret location.”

How cool is that. Wink, wink.

This gives hair ball a whole new meaning.

Based on the video, It appears there was some left over hair and BestOnlineCasino’s, Kim O’Neill, alluded to the fact that there was more to come.

I don’t even want to think about what’s next.

According to Jack Mason, spokesperson for BestOnlineCasino.com;

“I speak for everyone at BestOnlineCasino.com when I say I’m overjoyed with both the roulette ball and the ‘making-of’ video. When we purchased Michael Jackson’s hair last year, it was to create a fitting tribute to one of the world’s greatest entertainers. Not only am I proud to say we’ve done this, I’m delighted that we’ve been able to share the magical experience of its creation with Michael’s millions of fans through our video.”

Stay tuned to see what’s next for this now famous hair ball.

In the meantime click on any of the items below, while they may not be locks of Michael’s hair, I’m sure they’ll bring you hours of pleasure nonetheless. :lol:

 

Van Halen – WTF?


The on again off again rockers that make up Van Halen seemed to be having some issues.

Just recently I wrote about Van Halen extending their tour and playing at Power Balance Pavilion in August ““ well scratch that. They have “postponed” 31 shows starting on June 26th. They currently have 14 more shows to play between now and then ““ if they can get along.

A spokeswoman for the group had no official statement about the postponements and declined further comment. The band began the current tour in mid-February.

While no reason was given for the abrupt postponements, Rolling Stone is quoting a source close to the band as saying, “”¦hate each other.” The same source adds. “The band is arguing like mad. They are fighting.”

WTF?

How old are you guys!

Unless .  .  . there’s issues stemming from guitarist Eddie Van Halen’s health. In 2000, he began treatment for cancer in his tongue, but after later surgery, he was declared cancer-free in May 2002. This might be stretching it.

I think they just can’t play in the same sandbox together.

Kids!

Sacramento Politics

Major Jerk

Yesterday a funny thing happened in the California National Guard. I say funny, but I don’t mean in a haha kind of way. I mean in a WTF kind of way.

Some jerk in the National Guard, a guy by the name of Major General William H. Wade II was forced into retirement. You see he was caught double dipping ““ hold on ““ he’s a Major? Does that make him a major jerk? I think it does.

A Sacramento Bee investigation determined that “‘ole Major Jerk had received about $155,000 in improper double-dip earnings. Basically this guy was getting two day’s pay for a single day of work.

A Guard auditor concluded that Major Jerk did in fact owe the state $155,000, but due to the statute of limitations for recoupment (whatever!) they could only go after him for a tad over $88,000, which he has yet to pay anything back.

So as punishment for lying, cheating, and stealing from the National Guard ““ basically us tax payers – they have decided to “summarily remove” him from the Guard, forcing the poor schmuck into early retirement.

Really?

I can assure you if anyone in the private sector came under this kind of scrutiny, they would have been fired as in – Don’t let the door hit you on the way out fired. As far as retirement? How many people in the private sector have a sweet ass retirement waiting for them at the end of their career? I’m betting not many.

Let’s face it, this state and this country are in a sorry state. There are a lot of Major Jerks out there, each one destroying the very fabric of this country. For example, when confronted by federal officials the California Guard refused to respond to federal inquiries, claiming it amounted to undue federal intrusion. “We bristled,” a top Guard official told The Bee, because “we are very protective of our state status and state sovereignty.”

Bullshit.

The bottom-line is we need more people in office who are willing to clean up government.

I’d like to thank the Bee for bringing this to light.

Sacramento City Manager $305,940 Package!

Stock PhotographyI do believe the Sacramento City Council has their head in the sand, or somewhere else.

You might recall that the Sacramento area is in an extremely tough financial situation. To pile on the bad news, a few months ago the Sacramento area was ranked fifth in the nation in Forbes magazine as one of the “20 most miserable cities” in the country. And it doesn’t stop there.

A couple of days after Forbes hit the stand, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that Sacramento’s job performance last year was the worst among the nation’s major metropolitan areas. And let’s not forget about the real estate market. Home prices have continued their decline between the first and second quarters of this year, while most areas of the country realized gains during the same time period.

All this has led Sacramento to take some drastic steps. The forward thinking City Council approved a “crash tax” that was aimed at non-Sacramento drivers who were at fault in an accident within the city. The Sacramento fire department referred to this as a “scene stabilization” fee.  This was met with quite the backlash from both insurance companies and citizens of Sacramento. The main argument was that this would cause people to stop coming into the city and spending money. Thankfully level heads prevailed and the crash tax was rescinded.

The impact of this downturn has led to eighty Sacramento city police officers being laid off. Teachers and firefighters are also experiencing layoffs or hours being cut. Next year only three community centers and three swimming pools will remain open. Sacramento State students are  paying higher fees, adult health care facilities are shutting down, and the list continues to grow.

But wait! There’s some good economic news on the horizon, but only if you’re the newly hired Sacramento City Manager. John Shirey was recently hired with a total annual package coming in at a whopping $305,940! That’s the highest in the region and more than any other city employee in the history of Sacramento. Oh it gets better. You know ole mayor Kevin Johnson has been pushing for a “strong mayor” model for some time. If that were to happen Shirey gets a nice 6 month severance package. Crap – did I forget to mention he gets the 6 months severance even if he gets fired!!

What do we make of this? Well for starters Shirey is a good negotiator and the city council has their head up their wazoo and not the sand. What were they thinking? With a vote of 7 to 2 the city council gave the okay to hire Shirey at a 16% increase over the last city manager.

So I’m filing this story under our WTF department. How can members of the city council be so clueless when it comes to finances. Good luck negotiating with any of the unions such as the police or fire. While the police department and others are taking it in the shorts, the city council believes it’s business as usual and the economy isn’t impacting the city of Sacramento.

Wow! Really guys? Y’all need to get a clue. Do any of you read, watch, or listen to the news of any type? If you did, you’d realize that Sacramento is in a world of hurt and paying the city manager more than his predecessor is not going to bring more revenue into the city. Paying him more will only hurt any goodwill that you might have had with the people of Sacramento and city employees.

So to wrap this up I’d like to welcome the Sacramento City Council to our WTF department. Where we highlight the incredibly misguided individuals who have the ability to impact our lives – usually in a negative manner.

‘Electric Daisy’ Sparks Riot in Hollywood

Electronic Daisy CarnivalThe premier of Insomniac’s documentary “Electric Daisy Carnival Experience” was marred by riots last night at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

It appears Ryan Raddon, better known as DJ Kaskade tweeted that he was going to perform live in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Starting around 5:00 p.m. attendees and fans started arriving in the thousands. Commuters and tourists alike were surprised to find themselves in the middle of a free for all riot.

Police arrived on the scene and shut down Hollywood Boulevard trying to disperse the crowd. People started throwing objects and it all went south from there. Police donned riot gear and then really started dispersing the crowd. Some idiot actually started a police car on fire. How smart was that? With all the video cameras out there, I’m certain that will end up on youtube shortly and the poor schmuck who started the fire will find him, or herself, facing charges. No concert for them.

For those of you who do not know, Electric Daisy Carnival is an annual electronic dance music festival. It’s always been held on the last weekend of June in Southern California up until this year, when it was moved to Las Vegas, NV. Satellite events have also been held in Dallas, Colorado and as far away at Puerto Rico. This year attendance was estimated to be 215,000 people.

And for those of you who know the dumb ass who started the fire, let him know it’s only a matter of time. I say him because let’s face it. Women tend to me more civilized and would never think of starting a police car on fire, unless the police officer was their significant other who just recently cheated on her – then all bets are off.

Nirvana Nevermind Album PhotographI’m sure everyone read WTF to mean What The F***, but what it really means is What The Facebook.

Corny I know, but read on .  .  .

Nirvana’s iconic album Nevermind is celebrating it’s twenty year anniversary. That’s quite a milestone, especially if anyone reading this remembers the release way back in September 1991.

You remember 1991 right? That was the year of Desert Storm and gas was just north of a dollar at $1.12 per gallon, and you could still afford to go to a concert. There was also the firestorm in the Oakland hills that burned thousands of homes and killed 25 people. Sadly that was also the year we lost Freddie Mercury lead singer of Queen due to the AIDS virus.

So to celebrate this monumental moment the bands label, Universal, is planning to sell a 4-CD/1-DVD reissue of the album. However, Facebook has taken issue with cover art of a naked baby boy floating in a pool just letting it all hang out. According to Facebook the image violates it Terms of Use policy.

This hit the news twenty years ago! It’s old news. Facebook – get over yourselves. You are not the internet police, Google is.

Just relax and take a hit of this wild ass weed I just scored with my medical card. After all, we have progressed as a society – at least I’d like to think we have.

Later dude .  .  . I have a concert to get to.
