May 4, 2018 – A US education chief has been charged with repeatedly defecating on a high school football field and running track.
District superintendent Thomas Tramaglini, 42, was identified as the “mystery pooper” of Holmdel, New Jersey, after staff set up surveillance cameras.
He was arrested as he returned to the scene of the crime at Holmdel High School at 5.50am last Monday.
Police officers are believed to have observed him evacuating his bowels before confronting him as he began running at the school track.
Mr Tramaglini, who lives in nearby Matawan, New Jersey, was charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public.
Holmdel Township Police Department said in a statement that staff and coaches at the school “were finding human faeces on or near the area of the High School track and football field on a daily basis.
The fact Mr Tramaglini has not been convicted of any crime has not stopped him being variously dubbed the "Pooperintendent”, the “poopetrator” and the “Mad Crapper” online.
Dec. 7, 2017 – An internet “prankster” had to be freed by firefighters after cementing his head inside a microwave oven.
West Midlands Fire Service said it took an hour to free the man after they were called to a house in Fordhouses, Wolverhampton.
Friends had managed to feed an air tube into the 22-year-old’s mouth to help him breathe, the service said.
Watch Commander Shaun Dakin said the man “could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured”.
Mr Dakin said: “He and a group of friends had mixed seven bags of Polyfilla which they then poured around his head, which was protected by a plastic bag inside the microwave.
"The oven was being used as a mould and wasn’t plugged in. The mixture quickly set hard and, by the time we were called, they’d already been trying to free him for an hour and a half.”
Crews from the technical rescue team helped with taking the microwave apart, he added.
“It took us nearly an hour to free him,” added Mr Dakin.
Dec 7, 2017 – A woman has been ordered to pay compensation to her former boyfriend after ripping a testicle out of his scrotum with her teeth.
Nunzia Del Viscio, 43, carried out the attack in her victim’s flat in Edinburgh in May last year.
She claimed she had been acting in self defence, but was convicted of assault.
Del Viscio has been placed on a restriction of liberty order for six months, which means she must stay at home between 22:00 and 06:00.
Appearing for sentence at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, she was also ordered to pay her victim £500 compensation.
Sheriff Peter McCormack heard that those involved in the incident were Italian nationals, all working in restaurants in Edinburgh.
Del Viscio, Mr Palma and two other people met in a nightclub after work. They had been drinking, and Del Viscio admitted to having taken drugs.
When the nightclub closed, all four went to Mr Palma’s flat in a taxi.
Mr Palma told the court that in the early hours of the morning, Del Viscio had begun “destroying” one of the bedrooms.
He said he told her to calm down and leave, but during the argument she bit his left testicle.
He said he tried to stop the flow of blood with a towel and called for an ambulance.
He was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where his testicle was put back into the scrotum and he was given 15 stitches.
Police found Del Viscio outside the flat with blood on her teeth and face.
September 20, 2017 – A 13-year-old boy was injured while subway surfing on an F train on Tuesday afternoon, police say.
The boy, who reportedly got on the train at the Avenue U station, was riding outside of the southbound train when was injured at the Neptune Avenue station. DNAinfo reports the unnamed teen “managed to ride the length of the platform before striking the ‘Do Not Enter’ sign at 5 p.m.,” according to an NYPD spokesperson.
The boy fell into the tracks and was taken to Maimonides Medical Center in serious condition. A police source told the Daily News the teen sustained cuts to his face, multiple bruises to his stomach, and ruptured testicles.
Sept. 18, 2017 – There’s nothing quite like cozying up to a nice cold chunk of metal.
Firefighters in Worms, Germany, shared a fun story to its Facebook page on Friday in an attempt at showing how delicate the team of first responders can be during a sensitive rescue mission. “The professional fire brigade was called to the hospital in Worms,” a translated version of the Facebook post reads. “One person had a very sensitive body part in the hole of a 2.5 kg dumbbell disc.”
That’s right, a desperate man decided to put his penis inside a cold barbell, and had a little trouble removing it on his own.
The firefighters spent THREE HOURS trying to remove the dick from the disc, using a cutting grinder, a vibrating saw, and what they called “a hydraulic rescue device.” We’re not exactly sure what that is, but there is no way that was comfortable for this poor man.
While this dude clearly made a terrible mistake we can bet he will never make again, please take this as a lesson and remember there are plenty of safe male sex toys out there for purchase. Never use a piece of metal.
Just happened. Man jumps into Burning Man fire and dies of burns. Can’t make this up. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4848026/Man-ran-flames-Burning-Man-festival-died.html
August 25, 2017 – A car heist gone awry.
A would-be carjacker in Kent, Wash. was served up a little asphalt-heavy justice late last week, as he was dragged by the driver of a vehicle.
Twitter users @Sahrmoiwo1 and @SukkChahal captured the bizarre scene, which took place near an elementary school, local news station KIRO 7 reports.
When the SUV comes into the frame, the man is being dragged with his hands stuck in the door handle. As the vehicle comes to a stop, the man gets up — with a visibly road-burned backside — and attempts to get into the vehicle.
