12587-6622-7487271_G-lKTUL reported that a woman found one of the men stumbling around Evergreen Apartments around 1 a.m., covered in blood. Police were called, and subsequent investigation discovered that the men had been drinking.

When the phone argument turned violent, the pair broke their beer bottles and stabbed each other. At one point during the fracas, one of the men smashed their bottle over the other’s head.

The seriousness of the injuries hasn’t been made public, nor is it yet clear whether police or either of the victims are planning to press charges.

The iPhone versus Android debate is a common trope in American culture. iPhone owners will often claim features such as a smoother interface, better-integrated features and higher build quality, while Android owners will point to things like cheaper prices, a more flexible operating system, and/or technical superiority in some models.

Android devices generally enjoy a larger marketshare, since the operating system is used by a wide range of phone makers. The iPhone however is frequently the most popular individual brand, particularly in countries like China and the U.S.

Vermont lawmakers: Make pot legal or we ban booze


635648658901902651-041715PNI-MarijuanaTwo Vermont lawmakers fed up with delays to legalize marijuana in the state introduced a headline-grabbing measure this week designed to move things along: one that would outlaw alcohol. Legislators Chris Pearson and Jean O’Sullivan admit they have no interest in reinstating Prohibition, but they want to make a larger point, reports Vermont Public Radio.

In their eyes, marijuana is safer than alcohol, so why ban that drug and leave the other untouched?

“The object was to basically embarrass leadership to say that we have [marijuana legalization bills] in front of us, and they’re going absolutely nowhere,” O’Sullivan tells the Huffington Post.

Their bill would make those found in possession of small amounts of alcohol subject to fines of up to $500, and anyone caught selling or distributing it faces 30 years in prison and $1 million in fines.

A Michigan man who thought he was having a stroke was hospitalized this week after eating several pot brownies that were baked by his teenage daughter, police report.

browniesf1The 58-year-old victim consumed the brownies Wednesday night in his suburban Detroit home after finding the baked goods on a kitchen counter.

The victim’s 17-year-old daughter told cops that she left the brownies out because she did not think anyone in her family would touch them (the girl was apparently unaware of the deep affinity middle-age men have to such unattended sweets).

The brownies–which the teenager prepared with marijuana provided by a friend–were seized for analysis by Oakland County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

Investigators are considering filing criminal charges againt the girl, a high school student whose name was not released by cops. Her father was treated at an area hospital and later released.

Man Admits Feeding Pregnant Ex-girlfriend Abortion Drug In Smoothie, Causing Her To Miscarry


A 26-year-old man from Norway is facing seven years in jail after feeding his ex-girlfriend, who was pregnant with his child, a smoothie laced with an abortion drug.

Antibaby-smoothieThe pair had a short relationship and a child together already, but were no longer together when they met at a party and  decided to scrump. This resulted in the woman getting pregnant with his second child and the man suffering from some serious post bang regret.

“He tried several times to convince me to have an abortion but it was not an option for me,” the woman told the court in Trondheim.

Feeling that he had no way out, the man researched abortive medications and purchased the drugs online. He gave the woman the pills under the guise that they were over-the-counter pain killers. His first attempt was unsuccessful and evident at a pregnancy check-up which showed the baby was still developing. He freaked knowing that if a developing child were exposed to these drugs they could be born with severe deformities.

“I read online that pills could cause deformities if they did not work,” he told the court. “I thought that if it was my fault that the child was born with major malformations, and I would not be able to live with that.”

The dickhole then purchased more abortion drugs and made the girl a delicious smoothie chock full of them. After drinking it she experienced extreme abdominal cramping which resulted in her miscarrying her baby later that evening. The woman then went to her doctor and was found to have high levels of the drugs in her system.

The man was arrested and has since pleaded guilty to both inflicting serious bodily harm and terminating a pregnancy without the mother’s consent. He is facing a 7-year sentence for his crimes and addressed the court showing remorse, “I felt like a total shitbag when it dawned on me what I had done.”

Cassie Townsend Charged After Toddler Dies From Drinking Soda Spiked With Methadone


Cassie-TownsendBessemer police have charged Cassie Townsend after the two-year-old she was caring for died from drinking a grape soda spiked with the woman’s methadone.

Police say that around 1 a.m. Saturday morning, Townsend rushed Demonie Hendon to the hospital after realizing the grape soda she spiked with methadone was missing and Hendon was acting sick.

For those of you unaware, methadone is a medication that reduces withdrawal symptoms in people addicted to heroin or other narcotic drugs. It allows the addict to get high without the associated drug addiction. Methadone is normally not supposed to leave the clinic from where it is dispensed.

By time Hendon was admitted to the hospital, he was unresponsive and placed on life support. Townsend, who is the boy’s aunt or godmother, bonded out of jail after initially being charged with chemical endangerment of a child that morning.

However, Hendon was taken off of life support on Monday, and Townsend was arrested again, charged with chemical endangerment resulting in death. Townsend is currently in the Jefferson County Jail on a $60,000 bond.

Man calls 911 to say wife stole his cocaine


A man who called 911 late Wednesday night from his Westwood Avenue apartment just wanted to tattle on his wife for stealing his cocaine, Stark County Jail records said.

He told arriving police that there was no emergency.

“(He) called 911 because he claimed that his wife stole his cocaine,” the jail records said.

Police responded with an arrest.

But it wasn’t his wife.

The 39-year-old man had been wanted on an unrelated warrant charging him with driving under suspension. He also had a glass pipe that he told officers he uses to smoke marijuana, the jail records said.

Police arrested him on the warrant and on charges of misuse of 911 and drug paraphernalia possession. All of the charges against him are misdemeanors. The Repository does not typically name misdemeanor crime suspects.

The man was booked into the jail and released early Thursday pending a hearing in Alliance Municipal Court.

The records did not say whether the reportedly pilfered cocaine was recovered.
