Woman Steals $3.99 Bottle Of Wine To Reunite With Her Jailed Boyfriend

Alicia Walicke, a 22-year-old from Cedar Park, Texas, was devastated when her boyfriend was arrested and sent to the county jail — so she set out to join him there. Walicke shoplifted a $3.99 bottle of wine from a local gas station and then sat down outside to drink it, waiting for the cops to catch up to her. When she arrived in jail, she provided a proud smile for her mugshot, likely still jittery from her “romantic” gesture. Walicke has two previous convictions for theft and a prior arrest for biting a police officer. She had to post a $5,000 bail to be released — imagine how much of that cheap gas station wine she could’ve bought instead! No word on whether she actually got to see her boyfriend while she was locked up, or why simply going to see him on visitor’s day like everyone else wasn’t enough for her. True love, am I right?

I opted to try out her Lovely Lolita lashes, a subtle but voluminous pair to give my peepers some pop. Keep reading »

Professor Mireille Miller-Young Sentenced To Anger Management Classes For Stealing Anti-Abortion Protesters’ Sign

mireille miller young

Back in March, Mireille Miller-Young, an associate professor of feminist studies at UC Santa Barbara, made headlines for stealing a graphic anti-abortion sign from a group of protesters called Survivors Of The Abortion Holocaust on her campus. In addition to destroying the sign with scissors, Miller-Young also allegedly scratched and pushed a 16-year-old protester. She was charged with grand theft, vandalism and battery.

A video filmed by the anti-abortion protesters showed Miller-Young smiling during the incident; in a police report, the professor, who was pregnant at the time, said she had felt “triggered” by their graphic signs.

Miller-Young pleaded no contest to the charges against her. Last week, the professor was sentenced to three years probation, community service, 10 hours of anger management and a fine over the incident. Keep reading »
