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.

notweedcontainerA 21-year-old Nebraska motorist was arrested Saturday night after a cop discovered his marijuana stash inside a plastic container labeled “Not Weed,”police report.

Jordan Meier was traveling with three passengers around 9 PM when a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over his 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo on a Lincoln street for a traffic violation, according to a police report.

Meier was subsequently “placed into custody for DUI,” investigators noted.

During a post-arrest inventory search of Meier’s vehicle, cops located a 16-ounce plastic container (which once held Land O’Lakes sour cream) under the front passenger seat.

jordanmeierMeier claimed ownership of the container, which–as seen in the above evidence photo–had the words “Not Weed” written in marker on its lid.

But when deputies opened the container, they found more than 11 grams of marijuana inside. As a result, Meier (seen at right) was also cited for pot possession.

In an interview, Meier told TSG that he was on line at a drive-thru Saturday afternoon when he removed a Sharpie marker from his pocket and wrote on the plastic container. Asked why, he replied, “I don’t know…I thought I was being funny. Inside joke with myself, I suppose.” He added, “Never thinking it would be confiscated.”

According to Meier’s Facebook page, he has attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and works at a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop.

Student high on miaow miaow stabbed his mother 11 times and then cut off his own penis with a pair of scissors

A student high on miaow miaow stabbed his mother 11 times before cutting off his own penis at an ‘exceptional’ attack in their home.

263F923B00000578-2976173-image-m-4_1425324571009Charles Mann launched the frenzied attack on his mother, Emma, in December 2013 after bingeing on the party drug and copious amounts of alcohol.

After stabbing his mother repeatedly the 21-year-old turned the knife on himself to cut off his genitalia and was heard shouting: ‘I love you but this is the prophecy’ near their home in Haywards Heath, West Sussex.

He was jailed for 16 months today after admitting Grievous Bodily Harm.

As her son entered the dock at Hove Crown Court, Ms Mann was seen mouthing ‘I love you’ in his direction.

She required surgery for multiple punctures to one of her lungs and was wounded on her arms, head and neck following the attack.

The court heard how she made a frantic 999 call at 6.20am on December 29, telling operators: ‘My son’s just attacked me and stabbed me and he’s going mental downstairs with the knives.’

263F8EB000000578-2976173-Emma_Mann_was_stabbed_11_times-a-40_1425328647009Ms Mann was woken when her son returned home and began ‘trashing’ his room. The court heard how he followed her into the kitchen where he stabbed her 11 times.

The 21-year-old, who received treatment at a psychiatric facility before being transferred to Lewes Prison, was so high during the attack he was ‘not responding to pain’.

‘He was not reacting to pain and was described as manic and deranged,’ said prosecuting counsel Amy Packham.

When police arrived at the family home, he is said to have told officers: “I have stabbed her multiple times, I have killed her.

“I have stabbed my mum and I need to be punished for what I have done.”

‘He said he had taken miaow miaow, loads of lines of it, and a lot of alcohol. He appeared manic and deranged at the time.

He was said to have described himself as a ‘paedophile’ to police officers and begged: ‘I do not want to live.

‘Take me to the light, I can see the vampires.’

After pleading guilty to Grievous Bodily Harm at an earlier hearing the 21-year-old was jailed for 16 month, reduced to eight.

He will only serve another four weeks owing to the time already spent in custody.

Sentencing, judge David Rennie described the family’s case as ‘wholly exceptional’. Earlier Ms Mann spoke at the difficulty of seeing her son’s fate ‘already sealed’.

‘This case has a number of features which make it if not unique wholly exceptional. The lack of total awareness and capacity to form intent was the direct result of drug induced psychosis,’ said Judge Rennie.

‘I further recognise that in your psychotic state you inflicted life altering injuries on yourself and have taken this cocktail of drugs before without any particular side effects.

‘Your mother is an extraordinary human being who has conducted herself with enormous dignity, and I thank her very much indeed.’

David Etherington QC, representing Mann, said the defendant had become involved in taking drugs after completing his GCSEs and had spent time in The Priory trying to overcome his problem but had relapsed.

He told the court: ‘His parents even sent him to work on a kibbutz in Israel but the problems would come when he came home and fell in with the same crowd.’

He told the court Mann had had hallucinations on occasions after taking drugs but ‘had never had a reaction which caused him to be violent to another human being, particularly his mother who he loves very much and who he never had any conscious desire to hurt’.

Mr Etherington said Mann had relied on evidence of the attack because he had ‘virtually no coherent memory of what happened’.

He continued: ‘Looking back, in a mind that was very troubled at the time, he can only really rationalise it as being a suicide attempt by him in the grip of a delusion in which his mother somehow got involved.’

The court heard that although Mann had been ‘extremely mentally unwell at the time of the offence due to a drug induced psychosis” he had now recovered but remained “fragile and vulnerable.’

Police Called after Couple Eat Hash Ice Cream

Police were called to a summerhouse in West Iceland last weekend after a young couple’s trip turned out to be more than they bargained for.

hash_icecreamThe man started hallucinating, took off his clothes and started running around naked outside after eating homemade hash ice cream, which the couple made from a recipe on the internet. Meanwhile, the woman became very ill and called the police after becoming concerned for their mental health.

The police seized the remainder of the ice cream for investigation, where it was determined to be neither good nor fit for human consumption. The police dropped the couple home where they could be under adult supervision because it was not considered a good idea for them to be alone in the cottage.

Dopey drug dealer gets into police car ‘by mistake’

He had a good business alongside his Business Studies degree

A hapless business studies student accidentally got into an unmarked police car while carrying an ounce of weed.

Mature Edinburgh student Mariano Colsa-Gonzalez interrupted two officers during their tea break.

And when he realised who they were he said: “I’ve got into the wrong car,” before getting out.

The 35-year-old’s behaviour surprised the police and so they followed, searched and found eight bags of cannabis on him.

A further search at his home found 13 more bags and over £2,000 in cash – he claimed they were for his personal use.

Found guilty, the Business Studies student has been given a Community Payback Order for 24 months, and ordered to do 250 hours of unpaid work.

Previously he had to hand back over £31,000 in 2011 after being found guilty of supplying cannabis.

Illegal Pot Growers Foiled by Snow-Free Roofs

1009423-0-20150211134142Police near Amsterdam had an easy time of it zeroing in on a suspected marijuana grow house—it was the only one on the block whose roof was clear of snow, reports the Telegraph. Inside the home in Haarlem, cops found the expected heat lamps and pot plants. The trick worked so well that police tweeted out a photo of the telltale roof and asked residents to report any more they see. It’s just one of several similar busts, reports theIndependent, including one in Amersfoort this week that yielded 500 cannabis plants.

“Officers were investigating because the house was completely obscured and the roof was remarkably dry compared to other roofs in the street,” says a police spokesperson. The Netherlands may have relatively liberal marijuana laws when it comes to personal use, but not so much on the cultivation part. It’s illegal to have more than five plants per house.
