Lindsay Lohan has paid her debt to society. Yesterday marked the end of the 35 day in-home detention sentence she received after the infamous stolen necklace case in February. Off came the ankle monitor! She’s officially a free woman. Woo-hoo! We see a party on the horizon. But now that Lindsay claims she is clean and sober, she may have to think of new ways to celebrate her newfound freedom. Always thinking of others, we at The Frisky have some suggestions.
Here are some ways Lindsay can reenter society with a bang, without violating her probation–again. Keep reading »
Stephanie Robinette, a teacher in Delaware, has been charged with resisting arrest and assaulting police officers. But it’s the weapon she used that is highly unusual. On Saturday night, Robinette attended a wedding where she had too much to drink. After hitting her husband several times, she darted for their car and locked herself inside. When police officers arrived and tried to get her out of the car, she told them that she was a breastfeeding mom. At that point, she unleashed one of the girls from her dress and bra and began spraying the officers with breast milk. She was arrested on the spot. Though she did apologize for the incident saying, “I have no criminal record; I take these charges very seriously and I absolutely intend to seek help for substance abuse with alcohol because alcoholism does run in my family,” she plans to plead not guilty. Though I guess technically, it’s assault with a life-giving weapon rather than a deadly one? [10TV, Newser] Keep reading »
Jack Nicholson was spine-tingling nasty as mobster Frank Costello in Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed.” The character was, of course, based on a real life dude—James “Whitey” Bulger, the mobster turned informant turned fugitive who has been on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List for the past 16 years. Yesterday, Bulger was finally arrested, along with his longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig. They are currently being held in a California jail and both will have their first appearance in court today. Bulger is charged with 19 murders, while Greig will most likely face charges of harboring a fugitive.
So, how was Bulger found after so many years on the lam? Because of Greig’s beauty parlor habit. Keep reading »
There have been a lot of crazy crimes but this one is completely nuts: a Michigan woman is under investigation for assault, because she mailed a letter coated with peanut butter to her ex-husband, whose new wife just happens to have a peanut allergy.
The wife with the goober allergy picked up the letter soaked with oil in her Battle Creek, Mich mailbox only to see a warning scrawled on the envelope that it contained peanut butter, the Battle Creek Enquire reported.
Reports didn’t indicate if it was a chunky or smooth spread smeared on the letter. Read more… Keep reading »
Things not to do if you are a juror in a high profile case: friend request the defendant on Facebook. That’s exactly what British woman Joanne Fraill did and the action may just land her in jail for being in contempt of court. Fraill was a juror in a drug case with four defendants. After one of them was acquitted—a 34-year-old woman named Jamie Sewart—Fraill found her on Facebook and struck up a conversation. Apparently, she felt for Sewart. Keep reading »

“I don’t have much to say to you. I know that you know what you did was wrong … You did it with full knowledge. But I want you to know that I have a wonderful life.”
—Elizabeth Smart faces Brian David Mitchell, the man who kidnapped her at age 14 and forced her to be his second wife for nine months, at his sentencing yesterday.

We are so proud of Elizabeth for being able to say this to him nine years later and for being able to move on with her life and heal. [People] Keep reading »
Don’t these people have pockets?
Police in Florida say they have recovered a marijuana pipe and a woman’s identity from the body cavities of suspects arrested in separate incidents earlier this month.
Deputies from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office busted 46-year-old Ann Hernandez for making over $5,000 of purchases using a fraudulent credit card and another woman’s driver’s license — both of which were found in the suspect’s vagina. Read more… Keep reading »
When two robbers held up the two tellers working at a small bank in Houston in late March, wearing masks from the dollar store and brandishing toy guns, it looked pretty normal — for a robbery — on the security cameras. The robbers made off with $62K in loot in total. Two days later, one of the tellers—Estefany Martinez—posted on her Facebook page “IM RICH BITCH.” Shortly after, her boyfriend Ricky Gonzalez changed his status to, “WIPE MY TEETH WITH HUNDEREDS.” That lead police to believe the two might have teamed up for the heist. Authorities have now charged Estefany and her teller friend Anna Margarita Rivera with orchestrating a plot to have Estefany’s boyfriend and Anna’s brother faux rob them up, then split the cash four ways.

I was very disappointed to hear that my favorite auto-tuned celebrity, Antoine Dodson (aka Bed Intruder), was busted for possession of marijuana yesterday in Hunstsville, Alabama. He was charged with misdemeanor possession, failing to appear on a traffic charge, speeding, and failing to have insurance. Tsk tsk, Antoine. Don’t you know to “hide ya weed”? I was rooting for him to get out of the projects, I really was. And what happened to his lovely weave? Come back to us, Antoine. [TMZ]
