Kid Throws McDonald’s Burgers and Rocks at Cars, Mom Charged

They should’ve arrested that kid…

From pennlive.com:

“A Dauphin County woman was criminally charged Tuesday after state police said she failed to watch over her 2-year-old son, who was reportedly found throwing a variety of items at passing cars on a busy Elizabethville street.

The items the boy threw included a burger, shake and fries from McDonald’s, state police said. Other items were reportedly rocks, a pack of Newport cigarettes and a clothes hanger.

Jasmin Gueits, 36, the boy’s mother, was charged with a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child, state police said. Court records also show that Gueits was charged Tuesday with two summary offenses — driving with a suspended license and restrictions on alcoholic beverages in a vehicle.

State police received a report of the boy on Callowhill Street after a motorist called 911 and said the boy threw a rock at his car. He stopped to check on the boy, at which point he saw Gueits passed out inside her home, state police said.

Gueits as of Wednesday morning did not have a preliminary court hearing scheduled.”

McDonald’s High Chair Thief Busted, Streets Safe Again

On a pecking order of crimes that land you in prison and get you respect, this has got to be somewhere near the bottom.

From mlive.com:

“SAGINAW — A Saginaw man is charged with stealing a high chair from a Saginaw Township McDonald’s restaurant.

Miguel J. Vargas, 22, of 1721 S. Michigan is charged with larceny in a building Thursday at the eatery at 5008 State.

Saginaw Township Police Chief Donald Pussehl said an officer patrolling the State and Center area “observed Mr. Vargas walking out (of the restaurant) with a baby high chair” and then place it in a vehicle.

The officer performed a traffic stop on the vehicle, Pussehl said, and found Vargas and the high chair in the back seat.

Vargas “claims he was taking it for a joke” on a relative who was having a baby, the chief said.

In arraigning Vargas on Thursday, Saginaw County Chief District Judge M. Randall Jurrens entered a not guilty plea on his behalf and held him on a $2,000 or 10 percent bond. Vargas posted the bond and was free today.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

Vargas is scheduled for a Jan. 17 preliminary hearing before District Judge Christopher S. Boyd.”

Police Seeking to Catch McDonald’s Robbers Offer Incredibly Vague Description

Cops are looking for help in solving this caper. Three of five suspects apprehended but they’re looking for a black guy that owns a blue sweatshirt or another black guy with a black hooded sweatshirt. So basically, from the description the police give, anyone male of Farmington Hills’ 17.4% black population and who also likes sweatshirts. Glad they were so specific, this should go well. I wonder what the description people gave for the suspects that were caught?

“He wore a shirt and had hair and he wasn’t tall but he wasn’t really short either…sort of average height.”

From clickondetroit.com:

“Farmington Hills police said they’ve arrested three people in connection with the armed robbery of a McDonald’s early Thursday morning but are still looking for two more.

Police said officers were called to the fast food restaurant at 14 Mile and Orchard Lake roads just before 3 a.m. on the report of suspicious people. When officers arrived, the people ran off to an apartment complex. Shortly after, police said they got a call that the restaurant had been robbed at gunpoint. The descriptions of the suspicious group of people and the robbers matched. Through their investigation, police found two rifles and two cash drawers from the robbery and arrested three suspects.

Police said they are still looking for two more suspects who are described as two black males in their late teens or early twenties. One of the males was wearing a blue sweatshirt with green shorts and white tennis shoes. The other suspect was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a white zipper, black shorts, and yellow tennis shoes. The faces of both subjects were covered, one with a bandana and one with an article of clothing.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call the Farmington Hills Police Department at 248-871-2610.”

Man Wanted in McDonald’s Shooting Mistaken for Beaver

A suspect wanted for shooting another man in the head outside a Northern Virginia McDonald’s retaurant is in custody following a 20-hour manhunt, authorities said.

Police found 28-year-old DeWayne A. Williams hiding behind the home of Dumfries resident Barbara Wolf around 4 p.m. Tuesday.

“I thought it was a beaver,” Wolf said. “I ran into the pantry and grabbed my broom so I could go get that beaver.”

She said she watched Williams run under her porch, at which point she called police.

Williams was charged with aggravated malicious wounding and use of a firearm in commission of a felony in connection with Monday’s shooting in the 2800 block of Dale Boulevard in Woodbridge.

Williams’ accomplice, 31-year-old Jamie Lea Bowyer, turned herself into police several hours after Williams’ arrest.

Police say Williams shot someone known to him in the face following an “altercation” in the parking lot of a McDonald’s.

The victim, who managed to walk into the restaurant for help, is expected to recover.

Authorities say Williams and Bowyer then fled the scene.

Prince William County police used K-9 units, ground crews and helicopters in the search for Williams and Bowyer.
Police say the suspect, 28-year-old DeWayne A. Williams, ran from the scene and carjacked another person around Neabsco Mills Road and Dale Boulevard.

The carjacking victim, a 26-year-old man, told police that he was flagged down by a man he didn’t know. Police say Williams opened the victim’s passenger-side door, got into the vehicle and forced the driver to take him away from the area.

Williams later got out of the car and ran from the scene at Jefferson Davis Highway and Delaware Drive, police said.

Both Williams and Bowyer are being held without bond.

Cyclist Stabbed by Bum at McDonald’s on Way to Propose to Girlfriend, Bum Hides at Burger King

I can’t imagine being at a place and seeing a bum come in and throw their bloody knife and shirt in the trash.

From articles.courant.com:

“A Farmington man who was biking from Maryland to Miami, where he planned to proposed to his girlfriend, was stabbed to death on Monday night by a homeless man outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Vero Beach, Fla., local police said Tuesday.

Kevin Adorno, 28, of the Unionville section of Farmington, suffered stab wounds to his chest and arms after an unprovoked attack, Vero Beach police said. He was taken to Indian River Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Police responded to the McDonald’s on U.S. 1 about 9:30 p.m. following reports from a 911 caller that a customer had been stabbed. Adorno was found lying on the floor of the restaurant’s bathroom.

Rene Herrera Cruz, 59, the man police say stabbed Adorno, was arrested across the street at a Burger King by Vero Beach police and the local sheriff’s department. He was charged with first-degree murder, police said.

Witnesses told police they saw Adorno bike up to the McDonald’s and enter the restaurant. He was later seen stepping outside the restaurant before the stabbing happened, according to the arrest affidavit for Cruz.

Witnesses told police that Adorno was outside when he was stabbed but came inside after the attack. He collapsed and they attempted to help him, according to the arrest affidavit.

One witness told police that he felt as though his hand was on Adorno’s heart because of the severity of the stab wound.

Police spoke to Adorno’s girlfriend, who said she was on the phone with him when the attack happened. She said she never heard any argument. The last thing she reported hearing was the phone drop, according to the arrest affidavit.

Cruz told police that he had spent a lot of time at the McDonald’s after coming up to the area from Miami, according to the arrest affidavit. Cruz said he was concerned about people watching him at the McDonald’s, including a customer inside the restaurant.

Cruz told police he’d never met Adorno and the two hadn’t exchanged any words before the stabbing, according to the arrest affidavit. Cruz told police the reason for the attack was that Adorno was “directing the people to go after him.”

Cruz said he took the knife from his waistband when someone began walking toward him, according to the arrest affidavit. After taking out the knife, the person saw it and ran and Cruz said he stabbed Adorno.

After stabbing Adorno, Cruz went across the street to the Burger King where he discarded the knife and his shirt in the garbage, according to the arrest affidavit.
