Angry Over Being Taxed 22¢ Nahshon Sheldon Pulls A .22 Submachine Gun


dt_common_streams_StreamServerA Chicago man who claimed he was “tax exempt” and didn’t have to pay the 22-cent sales tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi allegedly pulled a .22 caliber submachine gun to avoid forking over the extra cash at a convenience store on Saturday.

Nahshon Shelton was charged with five counts, including felony unlawful use of a weapon, aggravated assault and having an invalid FOID card, and is currently being held without bail.

“I’m going to shoot you in the head three times,” the 36-year-old allegedly said during the incident. “Right now I’m going to smoke your ass. You’re not listening, I’m killing everyone in here.”

After he was arrested, Shelton allegedly told police, “[This] is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt! Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their place.”

According to Assistant State Attorney Claire Savaglio, the entire incident was captured on the store’s surveillance cameras.

Pair plead not guilty to plane sex charges


B97300505Z_120140401195354000GE356S10_11A man and woman will stand trial next January on charges of engaging in a sexual act in their seats on an Air Canada flight to Halifax.

Lawyers entered not guilty pleas Tuesday in Dartmouth provincial court for Jason George Chase, 39, of Halifax and Alicia Elizabeth Lander, 25, of West Porters Lake, who were not present.

Chase and Lander are both charged with committing an indecent act in public during a Jan. 24 flight from Toronto.

After RCMP were called to the arrivals area at Halifax Stanfield International Airport, Lander allegedly became verbally abusive and kicked an officer. She faces additional charges of causing a disturbance, assaulting a police officer and property mischief.

Judge Tim Gabriel scheduled the trial for the morning of Jan. 21, 2015.

Earlier dates were offered for the trial, but one of the defence lawyers wasn’t available in June.

RCMP won’t reveal the exact nature of the alleged sex act but have said it wasn’t intercourse. Nor will they confirm whether Chase and Lander were in a relationship or had just met.

Sources say Chase’s spouse was waiting for him at the airport.

Mark Gardiner, Chase’s lawyer, blew past reporters without commenting after Tuesday’s court proceeding.

Lyle Howe, who represents Lander, said he doesn’t think a half-day is enough time for the trial.

“I don’t anticipate being able to get through the whole Crown’s case, get through the defence case and do closing submissions in half a day, and I indicated that on the record,” Howe said.

Howe said it’s too early to say if he will call evidence on behalf of Lander.

“There are further discussions that have to be had between me and my client before we can decide exactly how we’re going to proceed,” he said.

“With criminal cases, often times they don’t go to trial. That sometimes has to do with discussions between Crown counsel and defence counsel, and it sometimes has to do with weaknesses in the Crown’s case or decisions on the part of defence or their client.

“Just because a matter is set for trial doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to go to trial, but that’s not speaking of this particular matter. That’s just a generality.”

Howe wouldn’t talk about how Lander is dealing with the high-profile charges. Nor would he say whether his client is in contact with Chase.

“I can tell you that she’s in touch with me,” he said. “We’re discussing the matter to make sure we move it forward in the most appropriate fashion.”

Man Accused Of Hitting Girlfriend With His Anger Management Book


A Spartanburg County man is accused of hitting his girlfriend with his anger management book while she was accused of stabbing him with a boxcutter, landing both of them in jail.

Deputies said they were called to the woman’s apartment Monday night where the fight broke out while watching a movie.


According to the deputy’s report, Sheelah Thompson, 22, claimed Tyler Ford, 23, strangled her and threatened to kill her several times, that he put her phone in the oven so that she could not call 911 and he “popped” their infant daughter twice on the legs because she was crying.

At one point, Thompson said Ford rolled up his anger management book and hit her with it, according to deputies.

Deputies said Ford had a deep cut on his forearm while Thompson had a bump on her forehead from the fight. The report stated Ford was asking Thompson questions about their relationship, about why she tries to get him angry knowing he was in anger management class, but she would only shrug in response, so he hit her on the foot and then the cheek with his book.

Thompson walked outside but Ford told her to come back in so the neighbors wouldn’t call police, but that is when she began to hit him, so he locked the door, deputies said. The report said when he opened the door back up, she began hitting him again, he hit her in return then she stabbed him.

Both Ford and Thompson were arrested. Thompson was charged with criminal domestic violence high and aggravated while Ford was charged with criminal domestic violence second offense.

Although it might be the most effective solution, shooting the neighbor’s dog that always poops in your yard is not necessarily the best solution


Joe-Richard-(2)A neighbor was arrested for shooting a neighbor’s dog Monday in the South Acres community.

The incident happened in the 3500 block of Cork Drive near Scott Street.

The 13-pound mixed breed puppy is named Betsy.

“Poor Betsy,” said her owner Emma Adderley.

She told us that the neighbor said he was tired of the dog going to the bathroom in his yard.

“She would run and go across and maybe smell a little bit,” said Adderley. “But she wasn’t doing her business in his yard.”

On Monday morning, Adderley wasn’t feeling well so her son took Betsy outside for her outside to run around.

Terrance Ferguson saw 79-year-old Joe Richard with the shotgun in the garage but never expected him to use it.

It was no secret that Richard didn’t like dogs.

“If he sees a dog coming towards his house, he’ll get a brick and hide behind the wall,” explained Ferguson.

That was until Ferguson left Betsy and walked back behind the house. He heard the unmistakable sound of a shotgun.

“I hear pow,” said Ferguson. “So I came back quick and I look, and the dog was already coming towards me full of blood.”

Adderley called 911 and Richard was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.

“This dog is innocent,” she said. “He’s a friendly little pet. He can’t harm nobody.”

Why you should never travel with one million dollars in cash in your suitcase


Not many people would take the risk of travelling across Europe by bus with €1 million in two suitcases. One Polish man took the chance, but his journey did not end as he probably planned.


  The Polish national was travelling by bus across France with his two red suitcases on his way back home from Spain.
  Suspicious French customs officers pulled him off his bus on the A36 motorway at  Chalampé in the department of Haut-Rhin, on the German border on January 22nd.
  When they asked him to open his suitcases, they may have been expecting some contraband, but what was inside would have left even the most experienced of customs official stunned.
  Packed neatly into his two suitcases was a cool €1 million in €50 notes.
“This man who presented himself as a businessman maintained that the money came from the sale of merchandise in Spain,” senior customs managers told TF1.
   But in his statements, “the man remained very evasive. As a result, the authorities decided to open an official inquiry,” the official explained.
  Investigators are examining whether this is a possible case of money laundering or simply a commercial transaction in cash, as the suspect claimed, France’s TF1 reported.
  An inquiry has been opened and officials from Mulhouse customs said that a sample of banknotes was currently undergoing laboratory analysis.
The money is being checked for traces of narcotic substances to try to determine where the notes may have come from.

  The case has been taken charge of by the French national judicial customs department (SNDJ). The money will be held until the affair is resolved.
  French law states that anyone transporting sums of money totalling over €10 000 in cash or cheques must declare it to customs officials.
  In 2012, French customs confiscated around €55 million in undeclared money. Half of this was taken from people in transit, travelling through France.

Former teacher charged after lying to police about details in nude photo scandal


jaime-climie-9614A former Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy teacher who resigned when nude photos of herself surfaced on the Internet is in trouble with police after she lied to investigators about her cellphone being stolen.

West Chester police say Jamie Climie lied to them Nov. 24 when she said someone stole her iPhone 4S from her home at 9019 Lynn Avenue. She told investigators her phone housed personal nude photographs that she’d only sent to her husband.

The previous day, Nov. 23, several nude photos were discovered on a revenge porn website, where hackers, ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends often post inappropriate photos, along with personal information about the person.

Climie resigned from her teaching position at CHCA on Nov. 30. At that time WCPO spoke to the teacher’s husband, who said he and his wife weren’t sure how the pictures got online. He said they were working with local authorities to handle the matter.

However, through a forensic investigation that included cellphone records and IP address backtracking, West Chester police were able to determine Climie had sent at least one of the photos to someone other than her husband, according to a press release from the police department.

Investigators say Climie has since come forward and admitted she lied. Her phone was never stolen.

On Jan. 16, Climie was charged with obstructing official business, a misdemeanor of the second degree.

She turned herself in to the West Chester Police Department on Jan. 21, was arraigned the same day and later released on her own recognizance.


Millionaire baffled why wife became ‘so aggressive’ after he replaced her with younger model. The kicker: he asked her to stay on as his ‘housekeeper


A businessman worth millions could not understand when he installed another woman into his home and asked his partner of 30 years if she would stay on as a housekeeper why she became ‘so aggressive’, a judge heard.                                                               

The details emerged from a private trial in the Family Division of the High Court, where the man’s partner was awarded a payout of more than £6million.

Mr Justice Bodey said the couple, from London, could not be identified, but his judgment reveals the man, who has interests in a portfolio of property in the capital, was in his 70s, and the partner in her 50s.

They married in the late 1970s and divorced in the 1990s, but the judge said they treated the divorce as ‘just a piece of paper’ and carried on living together.

About five years ago the man met another woman, and Mr Justice Bodey revealed his rather unorthodox plan for new living arrangements.

“The husband installed the other woman – and her 12-year-old daughter – into the marital home.

“The husband told (his partner) he was not intending her to vacate, and would she remain as some sort of housekeeper?”

He said she found the suggestion ‘very demeaning and upsetting’, and consulted solicitors to begin litigation, but the Judge said the man ‘could not come to terms with why (the partner), through her lawyers, had become so aggressive’.

Mr Justice Bodey ruled she was entitled to nearly half of a ‘kitty’ containing more than £13million.
