Woman Posted Bloodied “Selfie” On Facebook After Domestic Violence Attack

Woman Posted Bloodied "Selfie" On Facebook After Domestic Violence Attack

On Monday, December 30th, Facebook friends of Kentucky resident Susann Stacy would have seen a post of her bloodied face and the message “Help please anyone.”

Susann had been beaten over the head with a handgun by her husband, Donnie Stacy. At some point, the landline phone allegedly got ripped out of the wall. So Susann took a picture of herself (presumably with her computer) and posted it on Facebook through their Wifi network. Donnie was arrested and charged with assault; the handgun he used to beat her was found near their son’s play area. Keep reading »

Man Forced To Hold “I Beat Women” Sign For 8 Hours After, Well, Beating A Woman

Man Forced To Hold "I Beat Women" Sign For 8 Hours After, Well, Beating A Woman

Earlier this month, 20-year-old Alisha Hessler went out clubbing with two male friends, who brought a third male friend with them. At some point in the evening, when that guy tried to reach up Hessler’s skirt, she slapped him. He, in turn, beat her so badly that she suffered a concision and a broken nose. Hessler went to the hospital and filed a police report, but before officially filing charges against her attacker, she gave him a choice. Either he would be arrested and likely face charges for beating her or he could opt to stand in the middle of a busy Tampa intersection for either hours, wearing a dunce cap and holding a sign that read “I BEAT WOMAN. HONK IF I’M A SCUMBAG.” He chose the latter. (Apparently, Hessler originally wanted to the dickbag to sign a waiver allowing her to beat him for 10 minutes, but friends talked her out of it, given that, waiver or not, beating someone senseless, even if they hit you first, is illegal.)

Listen To George Zimmerman's Girlfriend's 911 Call

This summer, George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Travyon Martin, a 17-year-old unarmed Black teenager. Last month, Zimmerman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, battery domestic violence, and criminal mischief after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend. Yesterday, Zimmerman submitted a signed affadavit from Samantha Scheibe stating she does not want him charged and requesting contact with each other.

Scheibe called 911 outside her Florida home after an argument with Zimmeran during which she asked him to leave. He allegedly pointed a shotgun at her “for a minute,” smashed a table, and then shoved her out her front door and barricaded it with furniture. She can be heard on the call yelling at him while some of this is allegedly happening. (He made a 911 call of his own while she was talking to police, claiming Scheibe was “going crazy on me.”) Scheibe also told police that Zimmerman had choked her during an argument recently, but she had not reported it.  Zimmerman was released on bail under the condition that he not possess any weapons.

ashley depew knockout game victim

On November 18, a 23-year-old woman in St. Louis, Missouri, was punched in the face. She told police she was ambushed late at night while she and her boyfriend were picking up a drunk friend from a bar and punched as part of what’s been called the “knockout game.”

The “knockout game,” in case your grandmother has not been emailing you repeatedly about it, is an alleged game teens are playing in which they attack random folks on the street and knock them out. The woman appeared on KMOV local news, describing the alleged attack and discussing how she had a double fracture of the bone under her eye and needed reconstructive surgery.

Now the woman has admitted it was all a lie. Ashley DePew, 23, was actually punched in the face by her boyfriend, Justin Simms, 25.  Keep reading »

Nigella Lawson Denies Being A Raging Cokehead, Reveals What Really Incited Saatchi’s Violence

Earlier today in a UK court, TV chef Nigella Lawson took the stand to tell her side of the story about how those photos of ex-husband Charles Saatchi strangling her outside of Scott’s restaurant came to be. Oh, and to defend herself against the charge that she’s a major cokehead and that he wasn’t strangling her, but rather”removing drugs from her nose.” Because…that’s how it’s done? During his testimony, Saatchi changed his tale, telling the court that he “was not gripping, strangling or throttling her,” he “was holding her head by the neck to make her focus.” Yeah, still not working for me.

If that weren’t enough to deal with, Nigella’s former assistants, Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, were accused of racking up more than $1 million in charges on the couple’s credit card. Defense lawyers for the former employees have suggested that Nigella gave them free run to use the credit card in return for their silence about her drug habit. Well, it’s finally Nigella’s turn to speak. After the jump, some of the key parts of her testimony. Keep reading »
