Two Idiots Assault Man in Downtown Fullerton, Leaving Him in Coma

DTF Surveillance Footage
Quick - no one help! But everyone, pull your cell phones out!

Any fight that starts with something along the lines of "You lookin' at my girlfriend, bro?" is automatically pointless. Last week, that Neanderthal mentality put a young man into a coma.

Kent Wycliffe Easter's Monumental Drug Planting Retrial: Now with More Bombshells!

Courtesy of the Orange County District Attorney's office
Kent Wycliffe Easter, the cuckold attorney, ruined his wife's Valentine's Day with her lover.

The most monumental case in the history of Orange County--nay, MAN!*--opened Thursday with bombshell details!!! You want for instances, mild-mannered public? Check out these: Drugs were planted in the car of a mom volunteering at an Irvine elementary school because an attorney couple misunderstood her meaning when she referred to their 5-year-old son as being "slow;" the husband allegedly spoke with an Indian accent when he called police on the volunteer and identified himself with the name of an Indian neighbor; and the same hubby royally pissed off his scheming (and since convicted) wife by coming home sick the night of Valentine's Day, when she had planned a romantic night out with her firefighter lover--this revelation coming from the defense!

(* The most monumental case in the history of man is based on the number of emails I receive about the court dates changing amid unfounded fears the district attorney's office is secretly trying to dismiss the most monumental case in the history of man. Pound sand, O.J.!)

Claude D. Wyman Held for Allegedly Yelling "White Power" and Trying to Stab Black Guy

A 36-year-old Costa Mesa man is facing several charges and being held without bail after allegedly yelling "white power" at bystanders and trying to stab an African American man he did not know in front of a billiards hall.

This happened around 5 p.m. Thursday in front of Games Plus Billiards (a past Weekly Best Of winner) at 518 W. 19th St., Costa Mesa. Cops had received a call about a man wielding a knife and threatening to stab people in front of the business, says Costa Mesa Police Lt. Greg Scott, who identified the suspect as Claude D. Wyman. (I'm guess he's not related to the Wyman of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies.)

Wolfe's blood-alcohol that night measured at 0.31 percent, claims Deputy District Attorney Stephen Cornwell, the prosecutor in the case.

However, the 46-year-old suspect was not arrested until Tuesday--as in yesterday.

Jaqwun Turner said he was sorry.
Remember Martha Rodezno, the Los Angeles woman who became miffed and left a family party in Mission Viejo on foot in December, only to be found dead along a Santa Ana freeway?

A 33-year-old Hawthorne man has copped to refusing to stop after the 51-year-old hitchhiker fell out of his petroleum tanker truck that horrible night.

Specifically, Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert Fitzgerald offered a deal that allowed Jaqwun Laerin Turner to plead guilty this week to felony hit and run with permanent and serious injury in exchange for a year in jail and five years probation.

The deal didn't exactly sit well with prosecutors.

Gerardo Jose Jimenez was held on $100,000 bail.
A man with a star tattooed over his throat illegally parked his car in front of the Orange County Jail in Santa Ana Monday afternoon to put money in his wife's jail account.

That only would have earned 29-year-old Gerardo Jose Jimenez a parking ticket were it not for this: left unattended in the vehicle were his three daughters--an 8-month-old infant, a 21-month-old toddler and a 7-year-old girl, according to police.

That move sent the Garden Grove resident to jail himself for alleged child cruelty.

Hey Rocky, Watch Me Pull a Cell Phone Off of a Porch

Courtesy of the Orange County Sheriff's Department
Deputies are seeking the public's help to prevent Rocky sequels.

Since not everyone who wears a Game of Thrones tee is a poisonous royal and not everyone who wears a Scarface tee is a murderous cocaine dealer and not everyone who wears a Hello Kitty tee is a kitty, it stands to reason that it is perfectly acceptable that the ... cough-cough ... physical specimen shown here is rocking a Rocky tee.

But what he is shown doing on surveillance video being distributed by the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD) is not acceptable: walking off with a Yorba Linda resident's package with a $600 cell phone inside.
