PINELLAS PARK, Fla. — A Pinellas Park man, enraged because someone touched one of his cigars, attacked his pregnant sister and bit a police officer who was arresting him, police said.

According to arrest affidavits, 23-year-old Brian Keith Harrington got mad because he thought his sister’s boyfriend had either moved or smoked one of his cigars. He attacked the boyfriend, then started shoving his sister and other relatives when they tried to calm him down, police said.

LUTZ, Fla. (WFLA) – A man accused of breaking windshield wipers and windshields on several cars in a Pasco County parking lot told deputies he did it because he was angry he couldn’t remember where he parked his own car.

Deputies say 60-year-old Albert Megnath bent, broke and removed windshield wipers on several cars at the Northpointe Village Shopping Center in Lutz Saturday night. Removing the wipers also caused several windshields to crack, an arrest report says.

A total of six vehicles were reported damaged. Deputies say that’s in addition to about ten other vehicles “in which the owners did not wish to be victims in this case.” The total cost of damage is estimated to be about $1,000, according to the arrest report.

The arrest report also says Megnath was not supposed to be at the shopping center because he was given a trespass warning back in September for vandalizing the property.

The 60-year-old was arrested for criminal mischief and trespassing and taken to the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.

The deputy who filled out the arrest report requested a high bond due to Megnath’s crime, his history and his “uncooperative and argumentative” behavior during the investigation.

A woman was arrested after she was caught masturbating in public, but she didn’t stop when the handcuffs were placed on her wrists.

Dovie Nickels, 26, was arrested Tuesday after hotel guests saw a woman across the street “holding a silver object” against her sexual organs, the New York Post reports.

Police responded to a complaint from the JW Marriott Austin Hotel about 5:20 p.m. Tuesday about a woman across the street “holding a silver object” against her privates “with her legs straight up in the air, spread open,” according to the arrest affidavit.

A hotel worker said he could hear the woman — identified by authorities as Dovie Nickels, 26 — “making moaning noises,” the affidavit reads.

The worker saw the woman masturbating on the patio for about seven or eight minutes, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

The worker said the woman told him to back off as he approached her to tell her to stop.

She then went to the Second Bar + Kitchen across the street — where the lewd behavior allegedly continued, the outlet reported.

When police arrived at the bar, the woman stopped moving her arms under the table and placed them on top of it — but the officers “observed that Nickels was not wearing any pants,” the affidavit said.

After being arrested, Nickels allegedly continued to pleasure herself — even while handcuffed in the back of the squad car, police said.

The cops went across the street to investigate the original complaint and learned from a hotel employee that the woman had been spotted earlier at the Marriott’s street-level patio, the affidavit said.

Nickels was charged with indecent exposure and sent to the Travis County Jail with bail set at $3,000.

The Pensacola man who leveraged his viral mugshots into Instagram stardom is back in jail.

Charles McDowell, 31, was arrested in July 2018 in Escambia County on multiple charges after he was allegedly found with a fanny pack carrying cocaine, crack cocaine, meth and other narcotics.

He was released on bond Nov. 19 and was arrested two days later in Lee County, Alabama, on charges of attempting to elude law enforcement, marijuana possession, reckless driving and driving with a revoked license.

The state of Florida filed a motion in December to revoke McDowell’s bond related to his Escambia County charges, and he was arrested Tuesday and booked into Escambia County Jail just before 8:30 p.m.

With no bond, he’ll be behind bars until he faces trial for the charges filed against him in July. His next court appearance is Feb. 21.

McDowell’s mugshots went viral after after they were shared all over the internet toward the end of 2018 as people poked fun at his unusually wide neck. After he posted bond, he wasted no time capitalizing off of his newfound “wide neck” persona by creating an Instagram account with the user name “damnwideneck.”

He currently has more than 1.3 million followers on Instagram, where he has posted videos and photos alongside other internet personalities, and used humor to exploit the width of his neck, such as his posts about his “All Necks Matter” T-shirts.

Grant Tiernan Amato, 29, killed his parents and brother over an expensive obsession with a Bulgarian online call girl, say deputies in Seminole County, Florida. He allegedly told investigators the woman was his girlfriend, and that his father kicked him out of the home over the “relationship.”

The investigation started Friday when one of the victims, 31-year-old Cody Amato, didn’t show up to work at Advent Hospital East Orlando, according to the arrest affidavit obtained by Law&Crime. Amato’s girlfriend and a co-worker called deputies for a welfare check. Investigators checked out his home, only to find him and his parents, 59-year-old Chad Amato and 61-year-old Margaret Amato, dead. The mother and father were shot execution-style. There were no signs of forced entry or theft.
Grant Amato and his Honda Accord weren’t at the scene, but Cody’s girlfriend told investigators the family was having trouble with him. The suspect stole $60,000 from her boyfriend and sold his guns, the woman said. According to her, Cody voiced concern that Grant would [in the words of the affidavit] “kill everyone.”

The girlfriend said that problems with Grant started when he was kicked out of nurse anesthetist school. On top of that, family members had learned he was stealing money–about $200,000–to fund a relationship with a woman from Bulgaria. Investigators learned more when they interviewed a third Amato brother. This relative said he wasn’t close with his family, but spoke with his mother about once a week. According to him, Grant had been talking to an online call girl from Bulgaria, had been wiring her a lot of money, and even told her the family address.

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. – A Florida man thought he was being smart when he stole opioids from the medicine cabinet of a home where he was staying.

However, Peter Hans Emery, 56, quickly learned he didn’t steal opioids at all. Instead, the laxatives he took probably sent him running to the bathroom.

The Smoking Gun reports Emery was caught on video Thursday morning “entering the victim’s lockbox” at the Pinellas Park home and pouring pills in his hand.

The pills were labeled Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen, which is a pain medication that can be highly addictive. However, the pills themselves were actually Equate Gentle Laxative.

With a long rap sheet, Emery was arrested and booked on a felony charge and probation violation charges.

CITRUS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A substitute teacher accused of sending nudes to students at Citrus High School and performing oral sex on a 15-year-old has been arrested, authorities said.

Angela Jean Stanton, 50, of Inverness, is charged with one count of Felony Lewd and Lascivious Battery and one count of Felony Transmitting Harmful Materials to a Minor, according to an arrest report.

The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by school officials after the principal learned of possible inappropriate activity between Stanton and a minor.

Detectives responded to the school and interviewed three possible victims. During the interviews, they were informed Stanton had sent several nude photographs of herself to students through the Snapchat mobile app. Detectives also learned Stanton had allegedly performed oral sex on one of the juveniles, who was 15-years-old at the time.

When questioned, investigators said Stanton gave them several statements that “corroborated the specific details given by the victims.”

She was arrested and booked into the county jail, where she is being held on a $12,000 bond.

“Stanton was a trusted community member who was heavily involved in activities working with our county’s youth. She used her position to prey on the vulnerability of our children,” said Sheriff Prendergast. “No parent should ever have to worry about their child being victimized like this; especially from someone they viewed as a mentor. We will continue to work with the Citrus County School Board to determine if there are any additional victims.”

If you believe your child was a victim of Stanton, please contact Special Victims Unit Sergeant Stephen Conley at (352) 249-2718 or email [email protected]

Things got a little out of control outside a Pensacola, Florida, Waffle House Monday morning.

According to a police report from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, a woman later identified as Freedom Zobrist was causing problems in the parking lot. A Waffle House employee had called authorities after noticing the woman had dropped her pants and was blocking traffic.

The employee told officers she had been loitering in the area earlier in the day but had run off. She returned a few hours later and sat by the back door, read the report.

The employee told her to leave but she became “verbally abusive,” and threatened to retrieve her firearm and “shoot him in the face.” He said the unemployed Pensacola resident also threatened to shoot everyone in the diner.

The worker then said Zobrist walked into the middle of the parking lot, yanked her pants down, “exposing her sexual organs,” and began to dance.

The employee then said the 38-year-old went over to him and tried to grab his genitals and “lick both sides of his face.”

While trying to get her off the property, the victim told deputies she poked him in the chest.

A witness corroborated the story, telling officers that Zobrist was dancing naked in front of his car, preventing him from leaving.

Zobrist, who was “very loud and causing a disturbance,” was arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior, exposure of sexual organs, disorderly conduct, battery and assault. She was transported to the Escambia County Jail where she remains on $5,000 bond.

Apparently, it’s not just in Hollywood that people return to the scene of the crime.

Largo police say they arrested a man who tried, unsuccessfully, to rob two banks before returning to the first one.

Police said in a Facebook post Ronald Massey tried to enter the Bank of America on Wednesday morning but found the bank wasn’t open yet.

Massey wore a mask while trying to open the bank’s door around 8:20 a.m., but then rode away on his bicycle when he could not get inside, Spectrum Bay News 9 reported. Employees of the bank called the police to report the incident.

About 40 minutes later and roughly a quarter-mile south of the Bank of America, police got another reporter of an attempted robbery, according to WFLA News Channel 8.

Massey went to the BB&T bank where he tried to get money using a knife, but safety glass at the bank forced him to leave empty-handed, according to police.

Tellers behind the safety glass left the area to call the police, according to WFLA.

That’s when Massey went back to the Bank of America. There, he was met by a Largo police officer, who was taking a report and was arrested.

Bay News 9 reported Massey was still wearing a mask and carrying a knife when he returned.

“Massey just got out of prison for robbing two other Largo banks,” police said.

WFLA reported he was released Jan. 10.

FLORAL CITY, Fla. — A 75-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after deputies say he had been selling pounds of marijuana on a daily basis.

When serving a search warrant at the home of William Carlton Sr., deputies said they found more than a pound of marijuana, 20-gauge shotgun ammunition and more than $25,000 in cash inside Carlton’s bedroom.

Deputies say they also found a large wooden barn on the property with a pound and a half of marijuana and pieces of distribution equipment inside.

Because of the large amount of cash and marijuana on the property, deputies said they believe Carlton had been selling pounds of marijuana on a daily basis.

Carlton was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis with the intent to distribute, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and possession of paraphernalia.

“Not only was William Carlton Sr. a convicted felon in violation of the law by possessing firearm ammunition, but he was an even greater threat to our community from his illegal drugs activity,” Sheriff Mike Prendergast said in a statement.

Prendergast said a growing number of drugs in Florida are laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opiate that can be fatal.

“No one could know if the next batch of marijuana that Carlton would sell contained this deadly substance until it is too late,” Prendergast said. “Fentanyl-laced marijuana is a real and growing concern. That’s why your Sheriff’s Office will never stop enforcing the law and combating the illegal drug activity to make Citrus County the safest community in Florida.”

Yvelande Jean-Pierre eats a pre-made meal, leaves asparagus behind, police say

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – Not sure which side of the line a South Florida woman falls on between ridiculously dumb and incredibly brave.

Not only did Yvelande Jean-Pierre, 29, think it would be wise to break into a Boynton Beach police station, but she topped it off by eating an officer’s lunch once she was inside.

And it wasn’t difficult to find the culprit as Jean-Pierre left her wallet and Florida ID in front of the station.

Upon entering the substation at 2210 S. Congress Drive on Jan. 3, two officers noticed a broken window in the kitchen area. Further inspection showed the culprit had used two recycling bins to climb up and break the glass to gain entry.

The officers then noticed the suspect had removed two pre-made meals from the station refrigerator and heated one of them in the microwave.

An officer who works out of the substation was contacted and confirmed the meals were his.

According to the police report, the purloined lunch was chicken and asparagus. And no, Jean-Pierre did not eat the vegetables as they were found next the microwave.

Officers found a plastic bag outside the station that contained Jean-Pierre’s personal information. She was later located and arrested on a charge of criminal mischief.

A Florida man is facing assault and battery charges after deputies say he attacked his neighbors with a machete that had the word “kindness” written on it.

Santa Rosa County deputies arrested 30-year-old Bryan Duane Stewart last week.

Neighbors told deputies they heard banging and yelling coming from the man’s house all Wednesday. Stewart was also overheard saying he was going to “kill ’em with kindness,” an arrest report says.

Just before midnight, one neighbor decided to go over and check on things and ask Stewart to keep it down. The man told deputies Stewart came running out of his front door with a machete-style knife that had the word “kindness” written on the blade.

Another neighbor who saw what was happening stepped in to protect the other man and ended up getting cut on his hand, deputies say.

Deputies responded to the scene and used a taser on Stewart to take him into custody.

The arrest report says Stewart told deputies he “didn’t understand what was even going on” and “was just trying to go to sleep.” The deputy who wrote the arrest report noted that Stewart had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, as well as bloodshot and watery eyes.

Deputies say Stewart also would not stop banging his head and kicking the inside of the patrol car after he was taken into custody.

Stewart was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
