Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know You Needed

Wal-Mart bathroom eater jailed
While rest rooms are known as places to relieve yourself a 22-year-old man may have pioneered an alternate use. A loss prevention officer at a Wal-Mart Supercenter stated that Taylor Allen Dresia was "eating food" on the bathroom floor. Dresia's apparent picnic in the potty blocked the commode for patrons, and a store manager asked him to leave. "After a few minutes Dresia left and then returned in another entrance yelling that an employee stole something from his backpack while he was in the bathroom."
A deputy told Dresia to leave immediately. Dresia said he wasn't leaving and that he wanted to write something down. "Deputy advised Dresia not to play games and leave the store now," "Dresia again refused."
Dresia was arrested by an Indian River County Sheriff's deputy, was described as argumentative.
Deputies got Dresia, listed as homeless, out, arresting him on misdemeanor charges of trespassing after warning and resisting an officer without violence.

An Okaloosa County Sheriff's deputy spotted the man trespassing at a Destin park,
reports the Northwest Florida Daily News in Fort Walton Beach.
That's when the man, Edmund Berkeley Barksdale, tried to explain his ‘business’ to the deputy.
And the proof was in the pudding: Barksdale then reached into his shorts with his hand. When the 55-year-old man removed his hand, the deputy noted it had fecal matter on it, according to the arrest report.
Unfortunately, Barksdale isn't the only person that has faced a messy arrest.
1. Police: Woman, 73, 'defecated without warning'.She had an open bottle of vodka in a cooler in the vehicle’s back seat.
3. Loaded mom unloads -- alas, look where she decided to....
She put her unlicensed minor daughter in the driver's seat. She was too busy dumping a can of Bud Lite out the window as the cop approached.
9. Asked to leave, man urinates on bar
10. A naked man. A Taser. And feces. No happy ending here.
13. Why don't people publicly urinate at our grocery store? Oh, because we don't live in the Panhandle
15. What a load of crap! Woman busted for DUI

Sarasota Police say a nurse caught a 55-year-old bedridden man in a rehabilitation facility with child pornography on his computer.

A nurse reportedly saw an image of a naked child on Martin’s computer and called police.

Police say they found roughly 20,000 child porn images before the computer crashed.

Judge who demands punctuality but often he’s late
A Canadian judge with zero tolerance for lateness in his Toronto-area court has a poor record of returning to the bench on time.
Last month, Justice Howard Chisvin of the Ontario Court in Newmarket threw out 12 criminal cases when a Crown prosecutor was late in returning to court. Among the cases dismissed were people who had pleaded guilty and were awaiting sentencing.
Since that incident, prosecutors and defense attorneys have been lining up outside his courtroom doors before they open.
However, a reporter took a stopwatch to Chisvin's courtroom and discovered the judge has a poor record of punctuality.
The judge was late returning from every break, from a few seconds to as long as 19 minutes, 22 seconds.
After that lengthiest absence, he apologized to everyone who had been on time and cited a number of reasons he was running late.
