Residents in a Tamworth street were left stunned when council workers appeared to have left ‘penis-shapes’ in the road after trying to cover old markings with the wrong paint.
Staffordshire County Council said the preventative treatment used to maintain the road reacted with the painted white lines and causing the ‘mis-shapes’ at the junction of Emberton Way and Padstow.
But locals said they were ‘disgusted’ by the ‘mess’ left by the workers and said many of the shapes looked ‘obscene.’
He told the Mail Online: “There are some very bizarre, obscene shapes. One of them looks like someone’s giving someone the finger sign.
“They’ve scraped off the old road markings and painted over it, but the stuff they used reacted with the white lines.
“The paint melted the white lines underneath it so, as vehicles drove over the road,it went all over the placeIt’s a huge mistake and it has left the road in a right state.
“The road looks a complete mess, but they decided to paint the white line markings over the top when they’ve not even sorted the mess they had originally made.
“We often joke that we have several penises on our road. They do look like penis shapes.”
The father-of-one added: “The work took place four to five weeks ago and we’re already seeing cracks in the pavement, weeds growing out of the road surface and tyre markings across the pavements from where the vehicles have driven across the paint without warning.
“You can already see the red tarmac surface on one road because the paint has been dragged off. It is terrible frankly.’
Annette Bullick, 50, also told the Mail Online: “I was shocked when I first saw them. We found the shapes amusing but the state the whole estate has been left in is disgusting really.”
Father-of-two Steven Rowlands, 43, said: “It is terrible. The road looks ridiculous now, it is in a right mess.
“I can’t see how they can make such a mistake but it’s awful. I know a lot of residents who have complained to the council. They are obscene.
“I understand the council have told them they can’t do much about it. It is really starting to bother a lot of people round here though.”
Bar manager, Darryl Birch, 32, added: ‘I think it is a disgrace really. I am ashamed.
“I can’t imagine what it is doing to house prices around here because the road looks very unpleasant and would probably put buyers off.”
Councillor Mark Deaville, cabinet support member for highways and transport at Staffordshire County Council, said: ‘This preventative treatment is used to preserve and extend the life of roads that are already in good condition which means they last longer and do not require as much maintenance in the future.
“When the work was carried out the material caused a reaction with the painted white lines on the road which caused them to miss-shape. The effect was purely cosmetic and the material has now settled.
“Our highways team are now working with the contractor to resolve the aesthetic issues on site.”
A Napa woman faces felony assault and domestic violence allegations after attacking her boyfriend Saturday morning, according to police.
At about 2 a.m., Brenda Maria Rodriguez, 22, was arguing with boyfriend at her home in the 200 block of Hartle Court when she bit his arm, then beat him repeatedly about the head and chest with part of a Bissell vacuum cleaner, Sgt. Chase Haag said.
The man waited several hours before reporting the incident to police, who detained Rodriguez at 11:08 a.m. He was treated at Queen of the Valley Medical Center and later released, according to Haag.
Rodriguez was booked into the Napa County jail for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon and inflicting corporal injury on a cohabitant.
Imani Brown, 22, did not appreciate police officers interrupting her van sexy-time so she protested by nun-chucking one in the eye with a bloody tampon.
Police responded to multiple complaints regarding a couple having sex in plain view in the front seat of a parked van. According to police, the ground beside the van was littered with bloody used condoms and a soiled tampon. They would find Brown and Mackenzie Bruno, 27, naked, saucing the hot dog.
Brown, who I will now call “Get Down Brown”…was not happy with the police assisted coitus interruptus and exited the vehicle cursing and yelling at the officers. As a cop approached her, Brown leaned down, picked up the bloody tampon and then smashed it into the cop’s eye. The officer is currently being treated for exposure.
Let’s get real for a second. The thought of having a bloody tampon anywhere near your face is heinous alone. Add in the chance of exposure to STD’s, HIV, or the possibility that the tampon rested on a comfy asphalt bed of MRSA; I would be tempted to scoop out my eyeball with a spoon right then and there.
Brown has been charged with assaulting an officer, interfering with police and public indecency and is being held on a $100,000 bail. Bruno has been charged with public indecency and disturbing the peace. He has since be released on a $1,000 bail.
Back in 2013, we reported on Castillo after he got busted having sex with the same horse twice in three months. Now he’s back in jail for trying to have sex with a horse, and breaking his leg in the process.
When we last left Castillo two years ago, he had been arrested for having sex with a horse named Nadia for a second time. The last time he had sex with the horse, the act was captured by the owner’s newly installed surveillance cameras.
“We have a hell of a surveillance tape,” said Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino at the time. “It is not going to go to, ‘America’s Funniest’ that is for sure.”
Castillo had already been in trouble for his love of horses, having been arrested in 2012 for having sex with two different horses on two different ranches.
The problem is that there is no law in Texas that makes it illegal to have sex with a horse, so in the 2013 incident with Nadia, Castillo was only charged with trespassing and animal cruelty. He would end up getting five years probation.
Poor Castillo just couldn’t stay away from the warm embrace of horse poon, as he only made it to February of this year before getting busted again. This time he was caught in the same stable were he’d gotten busted making sweet, sweet love to Nadia.
In this latest incident, the stable owner found Castillo lying on the ground of the stable with an injured leg. Castillo said he’d been hit by a car and had crawled into the stable for shelter. The owner recognized Castillo and called police.
Investigators believe Castillo snuck into the stable and attempted to have sex with one of horses before the horse kicked him and broke his leg.
He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and later charged with criminal trespassing. He was booked into the Hidalgo County Jail last week on a $1,000 cash surety bond. If convicted, Castillo could spend 180 days in jail.
The teenager shot by a Hamilton Township homeowner last weekend was masturbating when police arrived, said Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell.
Later, when placed under arrest, the 17-year-old allegedly grabbed an officer’s groin so hard the officer needed medical attention and missed some work, Fornshell said.
“He was intent on, for whatever reason, raping someone that night,” the prosecutor said.
Police suspect he was on drugs. Juvenile court records show two previous misdemeanor drug charges in the teen’s history.
“It shows you what a highly-sexualized state he was in that he was masturbating as he is bleeding out,” Fornshell said. “He was completely oblivious.”
Authorities charged the teen Friday with multiple felonies, including attempted rape and aggravated burglary. He was still in the hospital Friday afternoon, but is expected to recover, Fornshell said.
Police said a homeowner on Murdock-Goshen Road shot the teen, and screaming obscenities, after he allegedly tried to break into multiple homes in the neighborhood.
“Basically, what we believe happened is he went out looking for a woman to have sex with,” Fornshell said.
The homeowner’s shotgun blast made sure that woman wasn’t his wife, but the shot injured her as well. She could lose her vision because of it, the prosecutor said.
Charges against the homeowner are unlikely, Fornshell said.
“No shots were fired until after repeated pleas when the teen began to grab (the homeowner’s wife) around the neck,” he said.
The homeowner’s wife tried to reason with the teen before that, according to a 911 call.
“I never said you were gay, honey. I believe you, I believe you,” she was overheard saying to him. “Stay away from me. Stay away from me. Please, please.”
The teen is charged with aggravated burglary, attempted aggravated burglary, attempted rape, assault on a police officer and public indecency.
“Warren County has its share of weird,” Fornshell said. “But this is right up there.”
LaVera was arrested in Baxter, Iowa, after trying to lure a 14-year-old girl into his car. He had been communicating with the girl on social media while claiming to be Kiowa Gordon, an actor known for playing Embry Call, one of those shape shifter/werewolf thingies featured in the mind-numbingly insipid Twilight series, and traveled to Baxter specifically for a meet-up with her.
However, a friend of the girl’s mother intervened, getting her out LaVera’s car, at which point he sped away. Police caught him a few minutes later and found two swords and several daggers in his vehicle. As far as I can tell, it’s this incident that led to the sexual abuse charge, as it appears that LaVera inappropriately touched the girl before trying to get her into his car.
Turns out that before the Baxter arrest, LaVera had come to LE’s attention for trying to lure a different 14-year-old girl in Newton. Same MO: social media connection, Twilight actor bullshit, LaVera arranges meet-up with teen. While the two walked through the park, LaVera asked her to sneak out that evening because he wanted to kiss her. Good on her: she reported him to the police. Boo on the cops: they told LaVera to stay away from children.
And before that? The Newton Community School District ‘fessed up that LaVera was admitted to two district schools where he performed acrobatic stunts at a school assemblies. Apparently, there were parents who vouched for him, he signed in with his own name, and he always had a teacher with him…but said teacher didn’t notice when he started signing autographs with the name “Kiowa Gordon.”
For the time being, LaVera will remain in the Polk County Jail while awaiting federal charges for possession of child pornography, charges to which he pleaded guilty in March.
