, 32, was arrested during an early morning raid Wednesday at a nightclub on South Street in Raleigh.

The raid was a joint venture by the Raleigh Police Department and state Alcohol Law Enforcement.

Bass was arrested at Club Rumors and charged with resisting an officer, carrying a concealed weapon, and possession of a stolen firearm.

It’s not clear if it was the stolen firearm that ended up in the detention center, but the Wake County Sheriff’s Office – which runs the center – referred all calls to Raleigh police.

Thursday morning, RPD sent out a brief statement that says, in part: “RPD aspects related to the firearm located later at the jail are currently being reviewed internally to determine if departmental procedures were followed and to determine if any of those procedures should be changed in light of the occurrence.”

After a court hearing Thursday, Bass’s attorney said he understood the weapon – a small derringer – was hidden in her hair weave.

The Sheriff’s Office said Bass was in the booking area of the Detention Center, but had not yet been processed through into the jail area when the gun was found.

Bond was set at $65,000 and the judge declined to lower it based on Bass’s criminal history.

Melissa Sellers 33, was arrested after an argument over spaghetti and meatballs led to her allegedly lighting her roommate on fire.   According to ABC Action News Tampa, Sellers and her roommate 42-year-old Carlos Ortiz Jr. had been drinking and began arguing after Ortiz had thrown out Sellers’ spaghetti and meatballs. Police say the altercation then escalated, with Sellers dousing Ortiz’s body with nail polish remover, and then igniting him. Sellers then threw water on Ortiz and tore his shirt off in an attempt to put out the fire.
“She had quite a temper. I think she broke a few windows over here,” Oritz’s friend Katherine Mudse said.

Sellers was originally charged with attempted murder due to the nature of the injuries, but now has been reported to be charged with aggravated battery instead. Neighbors and friends of Ortiz are saddened by the incident, saying that Ortiz was a good person and was just looking out for Sellers.

“He’s just a nice man . . . he took care of her dogs, she got evicted,” Mudse said.

Ortiz is being treated at Tampa General Hospital and is listed in critical condition with burns to his face, chest and shoulders. Sellers had previously been arrested for battery and robbery.

The perils of online dating are well-documented. But the mantle of absurdity in dating folklore might now belong to a Los Angeles area man, and it’s for where his online flame turned up: behind his mantel.

Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa had to be rescued over the weekend after becoming stuck inside of the chimney at a home in Thousand Oaks, California.

According to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, neighbors called police shortly before dawn Sunday to report the sound of a woman crying in the area.

When they arrived, they found the source of those cries, and then “carefully dismantled” the chimney brick by brick in order to free the spurned and quite sooty 30-year-old.

Nunez-Figueroa, who was conscious and alert, was taken to a hospital for evaluation and then arrested by the Thousand Oaks Police Department, accused of illegal entry and providing false information.

According to the guy who lives inside, it wasn’t the first time Nunez-Figueroa — whom he’d met online and went on a few dates with — had been “over” to his house.

“She seemed totally cool until the first flag was her actually being on my roof two weeks ago,” the unnamed homeowner told CNN affiliate KTLA.

“I hope she gets help, and I hope she stays offline. But even if she doesn’t, people are going to know who she is now,” he said before looking directly into KTLA’s camera and adding, “you’re welcome.”

A NURSE was arrested for killing as many as 38 patients because she found them or their relatives annoying, police said.
Daniela Poggiali, a 42-year-old resident of the Italian town of Lugo, was taken into custody over the weekend and booked for the alleged slaying of 78-year-old patient Rosa Calderoni, who died from an injection of potassium.
Calderoni had been admitted to the hospital with a routine illness before she died unexpectedly.
Tests showed she died with a high amount of potassium, which can provoke cardiac arrest, in her bloodstream, according to the Central European News.
Her death triggered an investigation, which found that 38 others had died mysteriously while Poggiali was on duty, the news agency reported.
One of Poggiali’s fellow nurses described her as a “cold person but always eager to work”, according to CEN.
Another one of Poggiali’s colleagues said the accused nurse was once reported for giving powerful laxatives to patients at the end of her shift to make work tougher for nurses working after her.

Man masturbated with stuffed animal at Walmart in Brooksville


Police in Brooksville have arrested a man for allegedly masturbating using a stuffed animal inside Walmart.

He then put the toy, now covered in ejaculate, back on the shelf, police say. Other items were contaminated and could not be sold.  Johnson fled the store but was located by police nearby. He was arrested and taken to the Hernando County Jail on $1,500 bond.

Woman Says Foot Stuck On The Pedel Was Reason For High Speed Chase

STAR-SHIELDS-WILLIAMSHow many of once have wanted to use this excuse even for just basic speeding.

A 19-year-old in Johnson County, North Carolina, is facing felony charges after allegedly leading officers on a chase that reached speeds of upwards of 100 MPH.

Her excuse, according to officers, was simple: Her foot got stuck on the gas pedal.

Sheriff’s deputies first spotted Star Shields Williams around 10:30 p.m. Monday, when she was allegedly speeding in a red Ford Mustang.

The deputy tried to get Williams to pull over, but, instead, the car allegedly sped up while deputies followed it along for a while before Williams finally stopped the car on the side of the road,.

That’s when officers say she told them about her stuck foot.

Shields was arrested and charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest, reckless driving, speeding, failure to stop for a light or siren, and driving left of center.

She remains in the Johnson County Jail on $36,000 bond.

I would have told them I had to pee real bad and just wanted to relieve myself .

Colombian Cycling Team Raises Eyebrows With Uniforms

columbiancyclingteamWhelp….these uniforms definitely make a statemtent.

They’re called cycling kits, the uniforms that cyclists wear in every color of the rainbow, but the color ‘nude’ has sparked something of an international incident.

The uniform of the Colombian National Women’s Cycling Team debuted at a race in Italy over the weekend.

The skin-colored uniforms fold in the most private of places leaving an illusion of nudity. The team proudly posed with their startling new gear, apparently unaware of what they look like.

The kits have fashionistas and cyclists deeming it a disaster.

“It’s bizarre. It looks like they are naked,” Bicycle Planet Manager, Jacob Stern said.

The uniform was sanctioned by the team’s sponsor, the city of Bogota.

“My personal opinion, it’s no good,” Colombian restaurant owner Frank Toro said.

Others saw no reason to change gears.

“If it’s covering I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that,” said a New York resident.

Just how the uniform rolled out is unclear, but no one on the team reportedly noticed the questionable color choice until it was laid out bare for all to see.

The uniforms have social media abuzz, with the International Cycling Union President tweeting, “We are on the case, it is unacceptable by any standard of decency.”

With the world championship cycling event taking place in Spain next week, the big question now is ‘what kind of exposure will they get next?’

Cycling’s governing body is investigating the issue.

I am personally waiting for these to be worn outside of cycling.

Constant Walk & Texters Now Have Their Own Sidewalk Lane

cellphonelaneMany people tend to get annoyed by people who constantly are walking along the sidewalk but not looking where they are going because their heads are down in their cellphones.

Well China has come up with somewhat of a solution to this issue…..Cellphone Sidewalk Lanes.

Smartphone users have their own lane on a 50-meter stretch of sidewalk in Chongqing, China.

The property manager where the sidewalk is located said the cellphone and no-cellphone lanes are supposed to be ironic — a reminder of the dangers of using your phone while walking, the Associated Press reports.

“There are lots of elderly people and children in our street, and walking with your cellphone may cause unnecessary collisions here,” said Nong Cheng, the marketing official with Meixin Group, in an interview with AP.

The idea was inspired by an experiment by National Geographic Television. In July, the channel set up cellphone and no-cellphone lanes in Washington, D.C.

But in D.C., many people just ignored the sidewalk markings or took pictures of the signage.

So this leaves us to ask this question, if you saw a “cellhone use only” lane would you honor it?
