Christa Engles Killed After Her Toddler Shoots Her In Head


A woman was fatally shot by her 3-year-old son Monday in what a Tulsa police detective called “a horrible, horrible accident.”

The shooting was reported at a house in the 100 block of South 168th East Avenue about 4:30 p.m.

Christa-EnglesChrista Engles, 26, was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head when she was taken by ambulance to St. John Medical Center, an EMSA spokeswoman said.

Sgt. Dave Walker confirmed Monday evening, after Engles’ husband had been notified, that she was pronounced dead at the hospital at 5:38 p.m.

Engles lived with her husband, two children and her mother and was home with the children when the 3-year-old boy shot her in the head with a semiautomatic handgun, Walker said in a press release Monday night.

“The grandmother arrived home and found the victim along with the children inside the house,” he said. “The victim was found in the front room of the house as if she was changing the 1-year-old’s diaper” when she was shot.

The older child tried to leave the home before the grandmother arrived, Walker said.

In an interview with child specialists, the boy “confirmed what the evidence led investigators to assume,” he said.

“We think this is a horrible, horrible accident,” Walker said.

Police waited for Engles’ husband, who is a truck driver, to return home before releasing the news that she had died.

“The neighbors, family, co-workers, and church family quickly gathered around this family in support of them during this terrible time,” Walker said.

Driving down the road smoking crack with a child in the car is no way to go through life…substance abuse treatment center manager


A manager of a Birmingham substance abuse treatment center faces charges after authorities said she was driving down I-65 smoking a crack pipe with a young child in her car.

bari-joy-williamsjpg-c0b81fd150b735e6Bari Joy Williams, 44, of Gardendale, is charged with chemical endangerment of a child, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, said Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector. Williams was arrested Nov. 20, and released from the county jail after posting $12,500 bond, records show.

Police and court records provide this account of what happened: About 2:30 p.m. last Thursday, a man called police to report a woman driving erratically on Interstate 65 southbound and told police he thought the driver was smoking crack cocaine while she was driving. The caller told police there was a child in the car.

Officers on patrol found the car and followed it to a parking lot in the 1500 block of Montgomery Highway. The officer walked up to the car and saw Williams holding a crack pipe in her right hand. The bottom part of the pipe was wrapped in a washcloth to prevent lip burns.

The officer knocked on the window, and the woman inside tried to hide the pipe. Once she rolled down the window, the officer said the “smell of burnt crack cocaine was overwhelming.”

Williams got out of the car and began yelling that she was a social worker and the pipe belonged to her husband. A search of her car turned up a small amount of crack cocaine.

She later told police she was having family problems and relapsed. The 5-year-old girl in the car with her was taken into the custody of the Department of Human Resources.

Williams told police she was the substance abuse director for Olivia’s House, according to court records. Efforts to reach Williams and Olivia House officials for comment were unsuccessful. A woman who answered the phone at the center said Williams was the clinical manager there.

Court records show Williams is set to make a court appearance on Wednesday.

911. “Yeah, there’s a guy passed out in the Taco Bell drive through.” Oh, it’s just the Chief of Police


A Kentucky police chief was arrested over the weekend after officers found him passed out drunk in the drive-through at Taco Bell.

Tyrone-Fields-WKYT-800x430Tyrone Fields, chief of Whitesburg police, was charged early Sunday with drunken driving after officers were called to the fast-food restaurant in Hazard.

Police said they found Fields behind the wheel shortly after 1 a.m. but could not awaken him, and he was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

Fields, who has been with Whitesburg police since 2008 and chief since 2011, said he was taken to the hospital for a blood test – not medical treatment.

“It’s very unfortunate, but I’ve learned from it,” Fields said. “Just never do it again, pick up the pieces and move on.”

He was scheduled to meet early this week with Mayor James Craft to discuss the incident.

Just How I Like It: Fireworks Display All Goes Off At Once


This is a video from an Italian fireworks display in which an ‘accident’ made the entire display go off simultaneously. Obviously, this isn’t the first time this has happened and there are always a couple Fourth of July displays here in the US that suffer the same fate. Of course that’s not too surprising either when you consider pyrotechnicians, at the very core, are really just people who love watching shit blow up all willy-nilly.

Two Teen Girls Accused Of Trying To Have Man Murdered For $2000


Two Oakland County teenagers are facing life in prison after they allegedly offered undercover agents $2,000 to kill a Flint man.


Eighteen-year-old Mia Rae Buscemi and 19-year-old Dallys Emery Vogel are due in court Thursday to face charges of solicitation to commit murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Authorities say the whole thing began back in October, when the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office received information that the Waterford Township teens were attempting find a hitman to kill a Flint man.

Undercover detectives made contact with the girls and set up a meeting on Nov. 4 at a location in Waterford Township. During the meeting, police say the girls specified that they wanted a man killed and even told the detectives how they wanted it done, before offering a payment of $2,000.

After the meeting, the teens were arrested and taken to the Oakland County Jail. Police have not yet indicated why the teens wanted the man killed.

Buscemi and Vogel were arraigned Nov. 6. Both are being held on  $100,000 cash surety, no 10 percent, bonds.

After running into a pedestrian while driving, it may arouse suspicion if you continue to drive for over a mile with the person embedded in your windshield


392637_630x354Ocean County authorities say a man was driving drunk along Route 9 in Ocean Township Monday evening when he allegedly hit a pedestrian.

The impact caused the victim to become lodged in the windshield.

Detectives say 33-year-old Marcos Ortega drove more than a mile with the man stuck there until an officer pulled him over.

The victim, a 66-year-old man, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Ortega is being held on $150,000 bail.

Man spends £50,000 on iPhone 6s to propose to girlfriend – she says no


1It’s Singles Day in China on Tuesday, a type of Valentine’s Day that sees people celebrate their single status by buying billions of dollars worth of items online.

But one Chinese programmer was so sick of being single that he spent more than £50,000 buying 99 iPhone 6s to propose to his girlfriend.

The problem is, she said no.

The young Guagzhou tech worker spent 500,000 yuan (£51,543) onApple‘s latest gadget, the equivalent of more than 17 years the average worker’s salary, according to CNN.

He carefully arranged the iPhones into the shape of a heart, and even had some money left over to buy a bunch of flowers. So far, so good, right?

3Not quite. In front of his colleagues and friends, she turned him down, with the resulting photos emerging on the Weibo social network.


If you’re looking for a cheap iPhone 6, you know who to call.
