Via The Smoking Gun: [Joshua Basso] was arrested yesterday after allegedly placing a series of obscene 911 calls during which he asked a female operator about her breasts and whether she would have sex with him. When confronted by cops, Basso would not say whether he was masturbating while talking to the operator, as he claimed during the calls. Why was Basso calling 911 for phone sex? His cellphone was out of minutes & would only dial 911. Florida or Ohio: Answer!
We want his name, Facebook account, address or whatever it takes to help police make a visit to his residence and ask him about the stomping of the WTAJ news truck last night. If Busted is ever going to send a criminal to jail with this Cuff 'Em series, Penn State guy deserves to be the first. Do your thing, BC Nation. Stand up to morons who protest the firing of a pedo-enabler. Hit us up: email@example.com
Via the Norwich Bulletin: Police said a white man believed to be in his 20s entered the bank, waited for a teller station to become available and handed the teller a note demanding money. He indicated he had a firearm concealed in his clothing and insisted that no “bait” money, which could contain an exploding dye pack, be included in the cash she handed over to him. CONCENTRATE. Do you have friend in Norwich w/blue NY hat? firstname.lastname@example.org
News started to leak yesterday about the DUI case surrounding San Antonio Spurs GM R.C. Buford. Today we get a look at the police report and it's not good for homeboy. R.C. had all sorts of issues Friday night on his way home from a fundraiser where it's suspected that the bored GM just destroyed the open bar. How else is it possible to turn in that classic mugshot? Just look at that left eye slicing through your skull. Don't sulk, bro. Your DUI file is awesome. JUMP!
Via NBC4: Authorities said they believe a man who may be missing a finger or two is responsible for robbing a bank inside a Giant Eagle last month. According to the FBI, the US Bank inside the grocery store in Gahanna was robbed on Oct. 12. Officials said surveillance images led them to believe that the suspect may be missing a finger or two on his right hand or that the hand may be deformed. Do work, BC Nation. We'll turn in Captain Hook. email@example.com
Via Asbury Park Press: At 10:15 a.m. Tuesday, the robber walked into the Zales Outlet jewelry store in the Jackson Premium Outlets after and told an employee that he was going to rob the store but “no one would get hurt’’ if they cooperated, police said. The suspect did not make any mention of having a weapon, police said. Swisher needing a little walking around money? And no weapon shown? These outlets are getting soft. Turn him in: firstname.lastname@example.org
Via News4: Police say the black male entered the bank on Court Street around 1:30 p.m. Monday afternoon, handed the teller a note demanding money, then made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. He is described as 5'9" with a large build and was wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers cap and black satin-type baseball jacket with "New York" lettering across the chest. Scared to turn in your homeboy? We aren't. Let's split the money. email@example.com
Taking a break from the Baseball Cap Bank Robbers series to move to our other BC hit, "Florida or Ohio." The rules are simple. We give you a crazy arrest story and you guess whether it took place in Florida or Ohio. This one is huge with the U.S. prison population. In fact, if you are in jail in either Ohio or Florida, write us. We need a guest editor for this series. firstname.lastname@example.org. Time to play! This couple was arrested for a nightclub three-way. JUMP!
Is there any debate now over whether Braves fan, who was flashing a gun during last week's holdup of a Chase Bank, is a gambling addict? Now comes word that he popped a Texas credit union on Thursday. Showed a gun both times. Dude is desperate to pay off a big gambling debt. He has enough money for the Abercrombie jacket, yet needs to rob a bank? C'mon, Sid Breamer. Stop taking the Cowboys in parlays. Turn in Breamer: email@example.com
Man, what a bad weekend for Dog The Bounty Hunter Halloween costume guy. Dog was pounding beers in Albuquerque this weekend & got behind the wheel of his Dog-mobile. Dog was pulled over by ABQ cops and Channel 4 had a camera there to document Dog walking the line. We also found Zombie Brandon in Minnesota who got a little lubed & ended up in the wrong house. Were you arrested this weekend, in costume? firstname.lastname@example.org
Louisville, KY cops are looking for a bank robber that we think one of you might know, or see at the local shopping mall walking around in this mammoth 'C' Reds hat. Again, bank robbers, for the most part, are really stupid criminals. Can't hold a steady job and are too stupid to wear the simple 'C' hat. Why differentiate yourself, moron? One of your homeboys is going to see you on TV with that huge 'C' on your melon. JUMP!
(Via) A volunteer youth cheerleading coach has been charged with running a prostitution ring at the three spas she owns in the Boston area. Prosecutors allege that Terry Mussari, 45, of Stoughton, offered an undercover officer 12 women to provide sexual services at a private party for men at the Brockton spa she owned. In other news, baby doll has resigned her elementary-aged cheerleading squad coaching job. Probably the proper thing to do, Terry.
Actually been getting some flack that all we show are black guys robbing banks and gas stations in this Baseball Cap Bank Robbers series. Um, if you're wearing a baseball cap, we can tell what team's logo is on that cap and the cops are looking for you, Busted Coverage will not rest until we land reward money. Today we head to Dallas where 'Sid Bream' is in town and needs some walking around money. B#$th, we ain't even playin'. Fill that bag. Hurry up. JUMP!
Well, look what we have here. Yesterday, we were complaining about Braves fan acting like he had a piece under his Adidas jacket. The comment was made for these homeboys to nut up and take their felony like a man. Show the 9. Anyway, in walks Saints fan ready to make a withdrawal from this Houston gas station's cash register. Dog just happens to be reppin' the Saints and instantly gets his moment on Baseball Cap Bank Robbers. JUMP!
Again, these baseball cap bank robbers keep killing us with their creativity. Normally, a bank robber comes in, makes his demand or passes a note, money is handed over and the transaction process is complete. But then we get Braves Hat Bank Robber and his buddy, Shorty. They have a weird plan that means, when caught, both will be doing hard time on felony robbery convictions. Nice to see Adidas get repped during one of these heists, though. Details - JUMP!
You might remember the case of Rita Daniels and Tim Adams from back in September when the cute couple was arrested for banging in a Buick - literally. Like, a cop walks up to a car in a parking lot and a car with Michigan tags (DIVA 145) is fogged up and rocking. Cop knocks, asks the guy what the hell is going on and is told, “I’m f%^king this chick." Yeah, well, these two horndogs have pleaded no contest to public indecency charges. No word on if they're still a couple.
Another week, another Busted Coverage Cuff 'Em first. This time we visit Florida for some beer pong action where a wild game took its toll on 22-year-old Santa Fe College student Matthew S. Lewis. Dude was at least 14 Nattys deep in a killer tourney and had to take a leak. So homeslice got on a roof at a trailer park and started hosing the grass. Just happened that a deputy was on foot patrol. BUSTED! He was booted from the beer pong game and taken to jail.
Just another day in Florida where a guy allegedly roughed up his wife. Only difference this time is that the homeboy is a former WR for the Dolphins. According to a Broward Sheriff's Office arrest report, James McKnight assaulted his wife Mikki Friday evening at about 6:30 p.m. as she tried to enter her car.The report says McKnight grabbed both of his wife's wrists and twisted them and then pushed her into the car as she was entering. Mikki McKnight hit her head on the car door "causing her to see stars," the report reads. Obviously she should have done the dishes.
Want to know why you should be investing in phone companies? Because morons like Rebecca Delagarza, 26, will finger blast 22,000 texts to a 14-year-old student that is supposedly having a lesbian affair with her gym teacher in a storage room. This all went down in Texas, which is quickly becoming a hotbed for off-the-grid lesbians who'll go balls to the walls within a school to find themselves an underage girl to lesbian-ise. The math on those 22k texts - JUMP!
The college football season is seven weeks old and this is our very first Iowa Hawkeyes arrest report inspection. Either BC is slacking or Hawkeye Nation needs to step up its drunken ways. This school is routinely one of the best for arrest reports. Take this weekend when one guy, Jared Dee Johnston, of Des Moines, told cops they were “f@cking crazy" when trying to kick him out of Kinnick Stadium for being drunk. Many, many more drunks and their fun - JUMP!
Ahhh, so that's how Chargers superfan Pablo Hernandez was able to afford great seats at Jack Murphy and the gas in that giant Ford Excursion. California State Police say they made a traffic stop on Pablo this week and happened to bring a drug dog in for a further inspection. Oh, what do we have here, Pablo? A little nose candy? Like 42 pounds of it? C'mon, homeboy, you can't be driving around Southern California and figure the cops won't stop you for an autograph. JUMP!
There really is truth to the "An idiot is born every minute," saying. This is for the ladies in the audience. Imagine an old dumpy dude knocking on your door and offering free breast exams - not even during October's breast cancer awareness month. That should raise red flags, no? Not even a bit? So some moron lets Phillip Winikoff into her home to start the exam. But something is amiss with this exam. Dude is working one off and isn't exactly checking for lumps. JUMP!
It was in the mid-70s yesterday in Cobb County, Georgia. Not exactly hooded sweatshirt weather, but that didn't stop Georgia fan from deciding it was a good day to make an unauthorized withdrawal from a Kroger's. This is actually one of the stranger football fan/baseball fan combos. It also reinforces the theory that we have. Football hats, for some reason, just haven't caught on in American pop culture. Hands up, punks! Homeboy needs his money - NOW! JUMP!
You know what never makes sense about these Baseball Cap Robbers? Their choice of teams. Take Cincinnati Reds fan. He tries to bust up a convenience store and a car rental company - in the same day - and is still wearing that Reds cap. Oh, did we mention this is in Rhode Island. How many guys are rocking the fitted 'C' in Woonsocket? Can't be too many. Get a Sox hate, moron. This punk shouldn't be hard to find. Details & how to turn in Billy Hatcher - JUMP!
Yes, Ohio has quite a presence within the Amish world. But these are the outcast Amish with ties to the original Lancaster County, Pa. Amish. The rebels. The gangstas, if you will. So it came as no surprise to us that a wild gang of beard-cutting bros was on the loose in Holmes County. But rest easy, Ohio Amish, the Mullet Brothers are behind bars thanks to an all-points bulletin to be on the lookout for scissor-wielding crazy bastards. Full story - JUMP!
Well, look what we have here - the executive, ready to scale a mountain black guy bank robber. As mentioned last week, our Baseball Cap Bank Robber researchers have noticed that the thieves are going to new costumes. Is that a direct result of BC calling them out for shitty hat choices? Likely. This bro in eastern Pennsylvania is obviously a reader because who would ever expect a black dude to be rocking Go Army! & North Face jacket combo? Not us. Details - JUMP!
Going to keep this one short. Got home at 1 a.m. from the Yankees-Tigers game. Anyway, we head to Florida where this dude thinks he has a famous father, but really has an elderly father that is abused with lit cigarettes. Tracy Chapman told deputies that he burned his father — who is partially disabled because of a stroke — because his father called him an obscene name, a deputy wrote.Tracy Chapman also insisted that he was the son of Elvis, according to the report.
Yeah, so the University of Florida isn't jerking around when it comes to rogue t-shirt vendors asking $20 a pop for shirts at the Gators-Bama football game. Nothing gets bearded rogue vendors pumped up for sales like the hated Crimson Tide coming to town. That's why Sean Rouse and Jeremy Matlow (right) went into overdrive with the thought process behind their shirts. You're aware of the "West F#$%king Virginia" craze. These boys brought the trend to the Swamp. JUMP!
Via The World (Ore.): Asa Crusoe, 33, was upset that Florida State University lost a game Saturday, police say. He started screaming and kicking things around his house on the 62300 block of Crown Point Road, according to police. A woman who lives at the residence tried to calm him down, but Crusoe only directed his anger toward her, police say. Crusoe is charged with domestic harassment and menacing. Bro, the QB is hurt & it was to Clemson. Cool it.
Got this message via a YouTube conversation we had with MKasunic re: Browns fan celebrating TD. "Yea he's been my best friend for years. He went to the game with his boss, when it got close Clint said "if they win I'm goin down there" his boss said if you do I'll bail you out. So they scored that td, clint jumped on the field and yea. He was arrested and held for 24 hours and his bail was $200 and idk if the stadium charged him or not. I didn't ask." Kudos to you, Clint. Good work, sir.
This will serve as the very first Cornhole Cuff 'Em in Busted Coverage Internet history. Stewart Haberlock was just going about his business in life, not a big playa on the Internet and just straight killing it at Kentucky football tailgates. And then it happened. He stopped at Overtime Sports Bar & Grill in Bowling Green, Kentucky to drink beers, chase tail and destroy some punks in cornhole. But things got wild and Stew had to drop some bombs on a punk's face. JUMP!
Florida, feeling a little left out of the Alabama-Ohio-Florida battle for Cuff 'Em supremacy, got back in the crazy arrest column over the weekend when this crazy maniac went overboard. Over a game of Yahtzee. "Dude, what'r you in for?," says Juan Carlos who was just arrested for smuggling hummingbirds. "The broad hit 5 consecutive Yahtzees, I got pissed and choked her out," Ian Wood replies. Jump!
About 10 days ago we asked Busted Coverage Nation about an incident after a Georgia football game where a 25-year-old Athens woman was passed out next to a pile of her own vomit. She was arrested on public intox charges & the world went about its business. But we weren't done with this story until laying eyes on a chick who would be passed out next to her vomit. Enter BC tipster Sara. She reports that it was her help that possibly saved the life of Pukey Pukerton. JUMP!
A reminder to New England Patriots fan out there with a spare cannon locked and loaded. You'll either be arrested or run out of powder this season. Via the Herald-Gazette in Rockland, Maine: Deputy Johnson responded to a report of shots fired in Washington. Upon arrival and making contact with the suspect involved, it was found that he was shooting off a cannon every time the New England Patriots scored. The subject was issued a warning and no further problems were reported.
You think Notre Dame's Brian Kelly is a loose cannon on the sidelines? At least he hasn't been arrested for his outbursts. Let's go to Florida where %^&% has hit the fan at one high school. Daniel Widrich doesn't like two things: turned over trash cans and players who won't pick up a turned over trash can when he tells that football player to pick it up. The result is a coach arrested and a football player clearing his face of the spit from Widrich's mouth. JUMP!
Poor Cherish Arroyo. Not only was she given a horrible name at birth that was never changed through legal channels with the Social Security Administration, but she's also living a miserable life. A life, we assume, filled with mouthy kids and a husband who's more interested in watching the Arizona Cardinals over romantic date nights and wild sex at Scottsdale hotels. Would that lead Arroyo to talk a 16-year-old football player into having his way with her? Yes, says the fuzz. JUMP!
