Divorce can be messy and sometimes, like this case, bloody. As unfortunate as that is, it’s REALLY unfortunate when the bickering between alleged adults goes public and the hate turns into a stabbin’.
A little league baseball game in Vallejo turned into a brawl as an ex-wife and her new boyfriend turned on the ex-husband; stabbing him repeatedly, according to police. It happened Sunday at a 6 p.m. game.
The ex-husband, 27-year old Jacob Wells, was talking to his son. The ex-wife, Katherine Wildman, reportedly said, “it’s not your week, you can’t talk to him.” They begin arguing in the stands. Wildman allegedly pulled out a sharp object – possibly a small knife – and stabbed him repeatedly in the upper neck and back of his head. Her new boyfriend, 24-year old Joshua Gonzales, jumped in, police said. He allegedly grabbed a screwdriver out of his truck and also started stabbing Wells – chiping the bone in his elbow.
For the players on the Richlands High School girl’s varsity soccer team, it should have been a joyous occasion, traveling by bus to the second round of soccer playoffs in North Carolina. Instead, they watch out the windows as a man drove by in his car and masturbated in front of them. And, once again modern technology helped with his arrest as a fast-thinking player pulled out her cell phone and took a picture of Mr. Vidalia King Jr., 21, in “all his glory.” He now faces a bunch of charges related to indecent exposure and should probably take that Oprah pledge about texting and driving, because, well, there’s probably not an organization devoted to stopping drivers from doing what he was doing.
A Grifton man has been accused of flashing a group of Onslow County students who were traveling to Dare County for the second round of soccer playoffs. Vidalia King Jr., 21, of Contentnea Drive in Grifton, was charged Friday by the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office with eight counts of indecent exposure and eight counts of taking indecent liberties with a child. The Richlands High School girl’s varsity soccer team was traveling along N.C. 11 to First Flight High School in Dare County on May 14 when the alleged incident occurred, said Barry Collins, the spokesman for Onslow County Schools.
They were about a mile from Grifton when the bus driver, Assistant Principal Colin Smith, took note of a red car maintaining speed next to the bus and noticed students talking and pointing, Collins said. When the bus stopped for a railroad crossing the car went by the bus and kept going. The students later told Smith that “the man driving the car pulled his penis out and was masturbating while driving down the road,” Collins said.
Usually, the cops are the ones at sporting events arrested those behaving badly. But not at a Bay Area event called “Badge vs. Badge” fights, where officers from different agencies box. Apparently the fans of one Oakland officer moved from trash talking to fist throwing and now the officers from the Oakland PD have been banned from the event.
A boxing match for law enforcement officers turned chaotic when supporters of an Oakland Police Department fighter escalated trash-talking into what turned into a shouting and shoving match that involved dozens of spectators. Fight fans and organizers were harshly critical of off-duty Oakland police at the Sacramento Radisson during Friday night’s “Badge vs. Badge” fights, and while fans said they were unsure whether those rooting for Oakland police fighters were officers or simply friends and relatives, event organizers said the troublemakers were police. As a result of the fracas, Oakland police officers are banned from fights sanctioned by the International Association of Boxing until a review of video footage is complete, said Steve Fosum, the association’s president.
“It was totally instigated by Oakland PD, no doubt in my mind,” said Fosum, who was in the ring Friday night. “They chose to be jerks instead of law enforcement. This was not an embarrassment to Badge versus Badge. This was not an embarrassment to law enforcement. This was an embarrassment to Oakland PD.”
Apparently Christopher Wayne Foster’s full time job paid him well enough that it gave him plenty of time to volunteer at Central Jr. High, in Springdale, Arkansas. Unfortunately, his full time job was allegedly running a prostitution ring.
Christopher Wayne Foster, 27, of Rogers, was arrested by Bentonville police Wednesday and charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, and promoting prostitution, according to a news release from the Bentonville Police Department. About 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, a 23-year-old woman reported to police that she had jumped from Foster’s vehicle after he tried to “detain her and drive away” from a location where the two had met. The woman told police she had worked for Foster as a personal assistant and that she met with him so he could pay wages he owed her. She told police she quit because she “learned that Foster was involved in a prostitution ring.”
According to police: “When the woman entered Foster’s vehicle, he grabbed her cell phone and began to speed away. The woman sustained minor injuries when she jumped from Foster’s truck.” Foster was arrested Wednesday along with two women, ages 19 and 20. Police said the two women were “determined to be employed by Foster as prostitutes.” One of the women told police she had met Foster by answering an ad on Facebook for a personal assistant.
Ever wondered why schools should be concerned about a little “horseplay that got out of hand” as hazing is often referred to? We’ll give you 2.5 million reasons.
School districts who don’t have anti-hazing policies (or worse, don’t enforce them) will always be vulnerable to these kinds of lawsuits. Is it always fair? No, but it’s the way of the world these days and if you ignore the hazing that is going on (and believe us, it happens at every school) you do so at great risk. Just as the administration at Carmel High School just outside of Indianapolis.
The family of one of the three accusers in the Carmel hazing case is threatening a two-and-a-quarter-million-dollar lawsuit. Attorneys for the accuser’s family filed a required notice of a potential suit against the school district last month. The district released the three-page document Friday as part of a release of public records in the case.
The notice reveals the family is listing sexual harassment as one potential ground for suing, a claim that would place the case under the federal civil rights law. The document filed by attorney Robert Turner charges the Carmel-Clay Schools have “a lengthy history of sexual abuse and bullying,” and accuses coaches and faculty of providing “no supervision whatsoever” in the school locker room.
A middle page detailing the specific accusations was deleted from the publicly released version of the document. Four basketball players have been indicted on misdemeanor charges of recklessness, with three of the four charged with battery as well. The charges accuse the players of assaulting three students in the room, with two players accused of attacking Turner’s client on a team bus following a game at South Vigo on January 22.
