Today's News - 7/8/08

Shortly after 2:20 a.m., Ballam, 30, of 205 N. 22nd St., made an emergency phone call claiming he had lost some money. When officers arrived, they found an intoxicated Ballam. He gave police conflicting statements. Police determined no crime was committed and told him to leave the club.

He didn't leave.

Ballam was told several more times to leave. Still inside the club, he called 911 again, demanding that a different set of officers respond.

At this point the officers at the scene told him not to call 911 again or he would be arrested.

Ballam finally left the club, but as he was walking out he called 911 again. Dispatchers contacted police, who arrested Ballam.

But not before Ballam put up a struggle as he was being handcuffed.

Hmm...I lost all my money in a strip club. Now what am I gonna do? Maybe I'll call 911 and see what happens. What an idiot!

A Potter Valley woman wounded herself and a man July 3 while attempting to kill mice with a .44-caliber Magnum revolver, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.

The woman, 43, had drawn the gun from a holster under her left arm, intending to shoot mice scurrying across the floor of a small travel trailer on Highway 20 in Potter Valley, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The revolver instead slipped from her hand and fired as it struck the floor, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The bullet went through the woman's right kneecap, then hit keys hanging on the belt loop of a 42-year-old man in the trailer, officials said. The bullet glanced off the keys and tore a hole in the man's pants.

The bullet grazed the man's groin before stopping in his coin pocket, where it was recovered for evidence, according to the Sheriff's Office.

There are so many things wrong with this story, I almost don't know where to start. There are mice in a travel trailer. She tries to kill the mice....with a gun....inside the trailer....and shoots herself and someone else. Wow.

Police Find Human Teeth During Bizarre Arrest

A man found hanging out in the woods with a car full of strange and disturbing objects.

Police spotted Timothy Placko driving on a dirt road near North Torino Parkway in Port St. Lucie.

They say he was looking at a stack of women's sonograms he had downloaded on the Internet and then printed. Placko gave them permission to search his van and that's when they say they found a series of strange items. Among them: a blond wig, rope, binoculars, an 18-inch machete, knives, gloves, two spent 9 mm shell casing and 18 human teeth inside a film canister.

Placko told police he had driven into the wooded area to call his girlfriend, but according to the police report, when they questioned him about her, he admitted he really wasn't calling anyone and said he was just driving around.

So what's with the strange objects? Placko says they were all gifts from his ex-girlfriend - except the human teeth, those, he says were found while rummaging through garbage.

Placko has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

How strange is this!?!? What kind of person just drives around with that kind of stuff in his car? Very disturbing!
