Show Notes for Thursday June 14, 2018


Dear John,

Probably a stupid letter, but I have a friend who keeps inviting me to get together, but right before we get together something comes up. It's happened about five or six times in the last month alone. I have something I want to give her, but now that she keeps ditching me for someone else or something else, I'm not sure I really even want to give her this gift. Should I just stop accepting her invitations? Should I tell her I have something I want to give her so she will meet up? Should I even give her the gift I bought her a few months ago? What would you do John? How about you Heidi? I'm excited to hear Heidi's advice, she's saucy like me!

A Kentucky State Police trooper, a retired State Police colonel, and a county coroner have been accused of several crimes including transporting moonshine and eyeballs. Scott County Coroner John Goble and retired State Police Lt. Col. Mike Crawford were indicted Thursday on multiple counts of receiving stolen property. The charges stem from the theft of $40,000 worth of ammunition and weapons. State Police began investigating the theft in December and placed Master Trooper Robert M. Harris on unpaid leave. He's accused of providing stolen items to Goble and Crawford. Harris has been indicted on unlawful taking and second-degree forgery. Goble also is accused of transporting a pair of donor eyes and moonshine, as well as possessing 90 Oxycodone tablets. It's unclear if they have lawyers. (

Is your significant other not introducing you to his friends or family members? Congratulations — you’ve been stashed. “Stashing” is the latest lousy relationship trend making couples miserable. It’s when one partner hides their better half from loved ones and doesn’t post about the relationship on social media.

A guy in Sacramento turned his SUV into a battering ram, repeatedly bashing another car. He eventually got out of his SUV to climb atop the target of his anger and stomped his way around it. Eventually the rage-filled driver slipped and was apprehended. Police didn’t try to get the road-rager off the car — they recognized he was “in crisis” and waited for him to come down. Video of the incident is both funny and sad.

New Orleans police are looking for two people accused of stealing a television from a pawn shop — and immediately pawning it back to the same shop. The male and female thieves have been identified and are being sought. In video, the woman can be seen taking the TV from the shelf and removing the price tag. She then took it to the front counter. The man, using his own identification, then pawned the TV for $175.

A Fayetteville man has been arrested in connection with a food tampering investigation that occurred on June 1, a news release said. Surveillance footage revealed that 59-year-old Ricky Lee Adami placed what is suspected to be rat poison in the shredded cheese machine at Primo Pizza, the release said. A manager was preparing pizza when he noticed an unknown substance in the cheese. The release said he stopped making pizza to go back and review the surveillance footage to determine who made the shredded cheese. The manager then called the police. All the contaminated cheese was identified and collected before being served to customers, police said. "I brought the bucket of cheese from the batch that he cut," manager Gurol Bicer said. "I fluffed it up like I normally do." He said he saw brown pellets mixed in with the cheese. Then he checked five other tubs of cheese, and three of them had the same pellets. All of it was thrown away. "Everything he touched, I threw away. All the containers, the parts of the machine, the cheese, of course," Bicer said. Some customers don't think it will impact business. "I don't think it's any reflection on the owners at all. So, I'm here today and I'm going to eat the pizza," said customer Ferd Irizarry. Bicer said Adami got in trouble with the owner hours prior to the incident. Bicer believes that may have set Adami off. Adami has been arrested and charged with distributing food containing noxious/deleterious material. He is currently being held at the Cumberland County Detention Center on a $100,000 secured bond.

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
A Boy Scout who packed a toy grenade in his carry-on bag caused the shutdown of a security checkpoint at Houston's William P. Hobby Airport Thursday morning, just a day after the international terminal of the city's other major airport was evacuated due to a bomb scare. Houston Airport System spokesman Bill Begley said people were allowed to approach the checkpoint again after authorities determined that the suspicious item spotted by a Transportation Security Administration agent was a "novelty grenade." It's not clear why the 17-year-old had the item in his bag. Houston police said the state won't charge the teen but that he could face a federal fine. Hobby Airport is a hub for Southwest Airlines and Begley said more than 15 Southwest flights were delayed. The website FlightAware indicated delays of an hour or more for flights arriving and departing the airport immediately after the security checkpoint reopened. An Associated Press journalist was in the line when a TSA agent raised the alarm at about 4:35 a.m., forcing hundreds of people to move away from the immediate area on both sides of the security checkpoint. "My wife and I were waiting to drop our bags into the X-ray machine and go through the detector, and I heard a TSA agent scream 'Shut it down, shut it down, shut it down!' Everyone was looking around, confused, and people were ordered to 'Clear out now!'" the AP's John L. Mone said. The explosives scare occurred only a day after police detained "an impatient passenger" who made comments about explosives in a bag at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport. Begley said that unidentified passenger's "inappropriate comment" prompted a bomb squad to close the international terminal for nearly an hour. The episode created a backlog of at least a thousand people waiting to go through security. Begley stressed that, especially during the busy summer travel season, anyone with any doubts as to what can be carried on a plane should check the TSA's "what can I bring? website before packing their bags.
