Be careful not to leave your death threat letter on a Kinko's copier

A Milwaukee man who says his rights were violated when he filed for bankruptcy has been charged with threatening to kill the federal judge who handled the case and to blow up a courthouse.

John J. Miller, 46, was arrested and charged last week after he faxed hand-written and signed letters from a Kinko's. On March 8, employees at the Kinko's on N. Farwell Ave. reported they found a threatening letter that included Miller's name and phone number. He had faxed the letter to four area codes and then left it on a copy machine, according to the complaint. An employee called Milwaukee police, who contacted the FBI. » Full article here

Woman crashes into DMV building during driving test

Not all would-be drivers ace their road tests on the first try, of course. But Nita Sureka hit a brick wall in her quest to obtain a driver’s license. Quite literally.

Sureka was demonstrating her parking prowess when she drove her 2000 Volkswagen Jetta into the side of the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The incident Saturday morning forced the center to close, and it remained closed yesterday. For Sureka, 28, a financial consultant from Ashburn, flunking her first driving test could be the least of her worries. Leesburg police charged her with reckless driving. » Article here

Dude sues after getting smacked with a shoe during lap dance

A businessman claims in a lawsuit that he was injured when a stripper giving him a lap dance swiveled and smacked him in the face with the heel of her shoe.
Stephen Chang, a securities trader, said in court papers filed Friday that he was at the Hot Lap Dance Club near Madison Square Garden and was getting a paid lap dance when the accident occurred. According to the lawsuit, as the dancer swung around, the heel of her shoe hit him in the eye, causing him "serious injuries."

A man who identified himself as the manager of the Hot Lap Dance Club said he was unaware of the accident or the state Supreme Court lawsuit. The club's lawyer, Stephen Ateshoglou, did not immediately return a call. » Article here

Naked dude goes on bizarre rampage at hotel & store

West Lampeter Township police were dispatched to reports of a naked male tearing up the hallways and lounge at the hotel, police said.
Before the end of the rampage by the unclothed man, identified by police as Nicholas Hadzick, 28, of Freeland, some office space at the resort would be trashed and a forklift would be driven into an interior wall, damaging some overhead sewer pipe as well. Hadzick would then cross the street to run amok at Darrenkamp's in the Willow Valley Shopping Center, causing more destruction.

"He was under the influence of something," said Blaise Holzbauer, Willow Valley executive vice president and general manager. Holzbauer said Hadzick was a guest at the resort, and apparently went on his spree after attending an off-property party before returning to his room, falling asleep, and waking up.

Hadzick's rampage "really went undetected," Holzbauer said, until the forklift striking the wall set off a smoke alarm, which alerted security. The forklift was on the premises as part of an ongoing renovation at the resort, Holzbauer said; police said at least one witness saw Hadzick gain access to a maintenance garage under some guest rooms to get the forklift.
