Man with terrifying tattoo face arrested in Craigslist prostitution sting

In Parkersburg, West Virginia, police arrested six women and two men after a round of several prostitution stings. And one of the men could go as Darth Maul for Halloween on the cheap.

The Charleston Daily Mail reported that cops were using accounts on and Craigslist to bust the sex solicitors. “It’s not an open-air prostitution issue. This is more of a behind-the-scenes, in the shadows kind of illicit activity that we weren’t necessarily aware of,” said police chief Joseph Martin. “We use this as a tool to try to uncover other crimes and other criminal activity that’s going on in or around Parkersburg.”

As a result, 45-year-old David William Ramage, aka frontrunner for the 2015 Mugshot That Made You Mess Your Drawers award, is facing a charge related to aiding in prostitution. As are several others in the Dark Lord of the Sith’s supposed harem, according to the WV Gazette:

Ashley Nicole Davis, 27, of Parkersburg
Angela D. Duelley, 26, of Parkersburg
Tiona Marie Rowe, 22, of Bluefield
Brittany D. Carlton, 27, of Parkersburg
Angela L. Smith, 30, of Parkersburg
Lorrae Anne Church, 38, of Parkersburg
Wayne A. McCallister, 27, of Raeford, North Carolina

Lance Supersad: Out Of Addiction, Leading Others To Recovery

At a recovery support group in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Lance Supersad and Paul Elliott are seated across from each other. Supersad, 20, leans forward, listening intently as Elliott tells him about his history of addiction — how it started in reaction to a breakup and cost Elliott his job as a security guard.

Supersad nods. It’s a familiar story to him.

“So if you don’t mind me asking, what drugs were you on?” Supersad asks. Elliott tells him: cocaine and prescription pills.

“Same here,” says Supersad. Elliott’s been clean for eight months; Supersad’s been clean for just under two years.

“It sounds crazy ’cause you’re older than me, but I’m proud of you,” Supersad says. “One time I actually came to somebody and talked about recovery, and they laughed at me, you know what I mean?”

No one’s laughing at Supersad now. He’s one of Connecticut’s young recovery coaches: he goes to support groups, speaks at high schools and spends time on the phone with other people recovering from

Donald Trump supporter arrested for voter fraud, mugshot released, full details revealed

The #2016 Election has proven to be the most controversial in recent history. With only 10 days remaining until Election Day, new stories are breaking on an almost daily basis.

Trump fan busted

Over the last three weeks, the #Donald Trump campaign have watched their poll numbers sink as multiple allegations of sexual assault have been directed at the Republican nominee. Trump continues to deny any wrongdoing, despite the 12th woman coming forward with her own story this week. As part of his defense, Trump has pushed the debunked conspiracy theory of a “rigged election,” accusing the media of working in secret with #Hillary Clinton in an attempt to sabotage his campaign. The former host of “The Apprentice” has made it part of his campaign routine to warn his supporters of potential wide spread voter fraud, despite no credible evidence backing up the talking-point. A recent report in The Washington Post showed that out of over one billion examples, only 31 incidents of voter fraud were found dating back to 2000. Despite this, The Hill reported on October 28 that there has been an arrest made for voter fraud in 2016,

Feds charge Tennessee fugitive arrested in Royal Oak in connection to Woodhaven bank robbery

A Tennessee fugitive who was arrested in early September during the Arts, Beats and Eats festival in Royal Oak is now charged federally with a bank robbery in Woodhaven.

Timothy England, 37, was arrested Friday, Sept. 2, in Royal Oak, during the popular festival, which tallied record attendance this year. England is charged in that arrest with assault on a police officer, possession of narcotics, possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of a stolen credit card.

Investigators say England was shooting up on drugs before fleeing from police and attempting to stab an officer with a syringe.

In early October, a criminal complaint was filed against England accusing him in a bank robbery Sept. 1 at the Comerica Bank in Woodhaven — an incident he was already a person of interest in.

The complaint stated that when Royal Oak police searched the car that England was spotted in prior to his arrest, investigators found a suspected bank robbery note that stated:

• “Give me your $100, $50, $20.”

• “No die packs, no bait money.”

• “No tracking devices.”

• “I have a pistol in front pocket.”

The complaint also stated photos of England taken by the Royal Oak Police Department matched surveillance video that depicted the suspect

31 years later, National Geographic’s iconic “Afghan Girl” is arrested for getting a fake ID

The Afghan refugee whose portrait became one of National Geographic’s most iconic covers has been arrested in Pakistan for obtaining a fake ID.

Sharbat Gula has been under investigation by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency since February 2015, when she and two men she claimed were her sons were found to have obtained Pakistan’s national ID cards. Gula supplied false documents and information to the country’s National Database Registration Authority (NADRA), using the name Sharbat Bibi, The Guardian reported. Her arrest comes after a two-year probe, and authorities are still trying to hunt down the three officials who issued those ID cards in April 2014. If convicted, Gula could face a $5,000 fine and up to 14 years in prison.

Gula’s haunting green eyes captured the world’s attention in 1985, when her photo was taken by world-famous photographer Steve McCurry in a refugee camp in Pakistan and published on the cover of National Geographic. Hers became the face that defined conflicts in Afghanistan during Soviet Occupation of the 1980s. Years later, McCurry joined a National Geographic film crew to track Gula down; they found her in 2002 in a remote Afghan village, where she lived with her family, and McCurry shot

Man Arrested Over “Meth” That Was Actually Krispy Kreme Glaze Files $15K Lawsuit

Do you remember the guy who was arrested for having what police thought was methamphetamine in his car, when really, it was just the flaky remains of a Krispy Kreme doughnut he’d chowed down on earlier? Of course you do, because meth and doughnuts. He said a few months back he was planning to sue over the incident, and now he’s doing exactly that.

The Florida man filed a lawsuit against the city of Orlando and Safariland, the company that produces the drug kits police used to test the mysterious substance at the scene, the Orlando Sentinel reports, seeking damages in excess of $15,000.

It all started last December when the man was pulled over for speeding, and failed to come to a full stop, the police report notes. The officer noticed a “rock like substance” on the floor near his feet, and asked if she could search the vehicle.

She tested the substance twice using a roadside drug kid produced by Safariland, and both times the test indicated meth, police said.

The man was arrested on drug-possession charges and spent about 10 hours in jail before he bonded out. Later tests by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
