An argument over whether a planned threesome would turn into a foursome in New York has brought about multiple arrests on February 12th.

A married couple from Massachusetts had arranged to have a male-female-female threesome with a New York woman they’d met at the Rivers Casino and Resort in Schenectady.

The plan started falling apart when the women started arguing in an attached restaurant. According to cops, it started when one of the three original parties suggested bringing in a fourth.

It’s unknown whose idea it was or the gender of the fourth party.

But then things turned physical when 21-year-old Judy Maxwell is said to have thrown a glass while arguing with 49-year-old Elizabeth Araiza.

When officers arrived to break it up, Ms. Araiza struggled with them and refused to get up off the floor after being handcuffed.https://www.surenews.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

When she was finally brought to her feet, her husband, 62-year-old Dmitri Houff stood in the way of the officers “as they were attempting to escort his wife…out of the casino.”

Both Araiza and Maxwell were charged with disorderly conduct. Araiza and Houff (the couple above) were charged with obstruction of governmental administration.

 

A Florida man is in hot water after punching his girlfriend, then setting upon her a beating with a dildo. Why? She criticized him during sex.

42-year-old Eric Pritsch and 58-year-old Carol Favuzza got in a tizzy earlier this month at their trailer home when Ms. Favuzza purportedly told him, “You’re not a man, you’re a mouse.”

That was pretty much enough for Mr. Pritsch to hear before he allegedly punched her in the face and, according to the arrest affidavit, “struck her in the back several times with a plastic dildo and some type of cord.” Both appeared to be intoxicated.

During questioning, a cop noticed swelling to Favuzza’s face and jaw. She was taken to a hospital for treatment. Pritsch denied hitting her and was taken to the same hospital for his “high level of intoxication.”

He was later booked into jail for misdemeanor battery and is currently free on $2500 bond. He’s next due in court on March 9th.

The couple both have priors, primarily for battery.

The dildo was never recovered.

The video was taken by another former caregiver who was in the room at the time. The footage shows Fultz doing lewd acts in front of the man and then straddling his leg, Bath said. “I can show you new things, I can show you new things,” Fultz can be heard saying on the video. The video also allegedly shows Fultz pulling down her pants and “mooning” the elderly resident.

Bath said the video was taken a few months ago and just recently given to officials at the Commons Of Providence. Once they received it, they called police. Officials at the facility could not be reached.

Parents of an eight-year-old boy in Ohio who overdosed on heroin have been charged with child endangerment and drug possession after the tragedy.

Charles Dowdy and Danielle Simko were taken into custody January 11th after he was taken to the hospital and medical staff there found prescription pills and a small bag of heroin inside of his sock. Luckily, the victim survived.

Charles says he’d been in bed with Danielle and their son when they noticed his lips had turned blue. He then called 911. He explained that he thought his son had rolled over and possibly smothered in the pillow.

Paramedics arrived and took the boy to Southwest General Medical Center. A urine test conducted there found heroin in his system.

Narcotics and syringes were found inside the couple’s home following a search.

They were each charged with child endangerment and held on $150,000 bond.

They’re next due in court on February 22nd.

Their son is now in the custody of relatives, and the couple have been barred from any contact with him.

 

An Iowa teacher that became a stripper, and was charged with sleeping with a 17-year-old student “hundreds of times,” will only serve three months in jail.

24-year-old Mary Beth Haglin was handed the light sentence Friday by the same judge who convicted her back in December. She must also register as a sex offender for 10 years.

She admitted to sleeping with the boy daily. She made this confession on the Dr. Phil show, and in light of that confession, her charges were upgraded from misdemeanor sexually exploiting a minor, to felony sexual exploitation.

She’s said to have “admitted engaging in a pattern or practice of sexual conduct with a student while employed as a teacher at Washington High School, which supports the more serious felony offenses,” according to court documents.

Haglin, who worked under the stripper name “Bambi,” was arrested back in July after the forbidden couple’s six-month affair was reported by a female classmate. The teen had showed off her nude photos to his friends. The photo below was among the illicit stash.

Ms. Haglin was working at Washington High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa at the time. It lasted from January to May of 2016.

She claimed the student seduced her with romantic notes.

At the end of classes, he’d leave the messages on her desk, referring to her as “my empress” and “Mrs. Robinson,” the latter referencing the older woman who seduces a young man in the movie “The Graduate.”

There were reports of an active shooter in the area of 98th Avenue and Golf Links Road off of Interstate 580. The man was inside of a house pointing a rifle out of the window.

A teacher at a Catholic school in Norristown, Pennsylvania has been arrested and charged for allegedly sexually abusing a three-year-old girl, just for calling him “stupid.”

32-year-old Michael Barbee, a teacher at Saint Francis of Assisi Parish in the early learning program, has already admitted to touching the little girl during nap time.

The young victim attended the school and complained, saying Mr. Barbee covered her mouth when he touched her.

He originally told investigators that he hadn’t touched her in a sexual way. But cops say after agreeing to a polygraph exam, he confessed that he’d had sexual contact with her.

He told them that he did it after she called him “stupid.”

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia claims it first learned of the investigation on February 10th. They immediately put him on leave.

He’s now being held with bail set at $750,000.

A then-teacher in Sandpoint, Idaho is facing felonies for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student.

47-year-old Nichole Thiel was 46 years old at the time, December of 2015, and was a culinary arts teacher working at Lake Pend Oreille High School.

The student copped to the illicit affair to a school counselor last year, and local cops were called in order to investigate the claims.

According to that student, it started when Ms. Thiel was upset and crying and the student tried to console her with a hug. She then allegedly kissed him on the cheek.

He helped her set up Facebook messenger on her phone at a later date, and the two started corresponding there.

Over the Christmas break back in 2015, he says she picked him up at his dad’s house and took him to her condominium. He claims that Thiel then told him she hadn’t had sex in six years. She offered to give him a back rub, which led to the full shebang.

That was the only time the two had sex, according to the student. He also says she’d contacted him recently offering to write him a letter of recommendation for college.

Her current job is as the vice principal and director of activities at Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy. She’s currently on administrative leave from that job.

She’s been charged with sexual battery and is due back in court on March 1st.

A teacher’s aide from Kentucky has been arrested in Florida for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old male student.

Traci Flynn worked at Southern Elementary School in Kentucky, but is in jail in Florida because she’d gone on a school trip there.

Her interaction with the boy occurred sometime between November and December of 2016. The investigation started on December 28, 2016. The victim wasn’t a student at the school where she worked.

She’s been indicted on four counts of rape, two counts of sodomy, and one count of using electronic means to promote a minor to engage in sexual activity.

A 16-year-old Nebraska mother has confessed to killing her newborn daughter by throwing her out of a second-floor window.

Antonia Lopez gave birth without anyone knowing on September 30, 2016. She then threw her out of the window before taking to Facebook to try and get a ride and help to dispose of the body.

About two months premature, the tiny child measured 14 inches long and weighed only two pounds.

She had bleeding around her skull, brain, spine and abdomen and was pronounced dead.

Lopez initially denied knowing she was pregnant, but messages on her Snapchat showed different, and she’d kept it hidden for months.

She was charged as an adult originally, but entered a plea of admission after her case was moved to the juvenile court.

She would have been facing 20 years to life if convicted as an adult. She was ordered to continue school and undergo both medical and psychiatric care while staying in foster care.

She’s likely to be put on probation or sent to a group home or juvenile detention facility until she turns 19.

She started pushing the baby out onto a towel that she’d laid on the ground, before piercing the amniotic sac with a pair of nail clippers.

She then panicked and threw her new child out of the window. Her mother called 911 after she found the baby in the grass. The little girl was pronounced dead by the time she was taken to the hospital.

A pathologist told cops that the baby was alive when she’d been tossed, but Lopez told her boyfriend that she’d had a miscarriage.

She posted to Facebook just over a half-hour before paramedics were dispatched to her home.

When a friend replied, she asked for help disposing of the baby’s body, and asked for trashbags and a car.

On Valentine’s Day, a Florida mother-and-daughter prostitution team has been booked into jail after being arrested and charged during an undercover prostitution sting by cops.

A cop ran across an ad on backpage.com, which claimed a “SeXy MILF” with an “Awesome Attitude & Personality” enjoyed performing oral sex without a condom. The investigator called and arranged a 30-minute tryst with “Tamara” for $100.

“Tamara” told the undercover officer to go to a specific Motel 6.

When the cop arrived at the motel, he was met by 57-year-old Tanja Gammon. She was wearing lingerie. She then proceeded to grab the undercover officer’s hand and guide it towards her crotch, saying, “You gotta make sure I don’t have a dick.”

As the cop waited for the takedown guys to enter the room, she “kept grabbing my underwear until she briefly exposed my penis,” he noted.

When she was arrested, she yelled, “I didn’t take the money yet! I didn’t take the money yet! So it really doesn’t matter!”

Arresting officers found that Ms. Gammon’s daughter, 31-year-old Darcel Gammon, had been in the bathroom the entire time. She was likewise clad in lingerie. According to the arrest affidavit, it was “clear that she was inside the bathroom listening and looking out for Tanja.”

As Darcel was being taken to jail, she told a deputy that she “knew I was a cop, and that I called her first, but she knew better than to call back.”

The two were charged with prostitution and other charges and now reside in the Osceola County jail.

New York City police officers tasered a pregnant 17-year-old girl after she refused to let them inside her apartment without a warrant Friday night.

NYPD cops were already in the building when they made their way upstairs to the fourth floor in response to a fight between the girl’s boyfriend and her sister’s boyfriend over a video game.

The girl’s boyfriend had already left the apartment, but the girl, Dailene Rosario, who is 14 weeks pregnant, remained inside, arguing with her sister’s boyfriend when several cops banged on the apartment door.

Rosario refused to let them inside without a warrant, so they called for backup.

At one point, she told the cops she needed to step outside for fresh air, which was when they grabbed her arms and tried to arrest her.

A video recorded by a witness shows more than a dozen cops grabbing her, twisting her arms behind her as she tells them to “get off me.”

A plainclothes cop wearing a New York Jets ski cap tasers her seconds later.
