This just goes to show that even the best music in the world can turn ugly if sung too many times by your drunken boyfriend at his birthday party.
A 23-year-old Colorado woman named Samantha Malson was arrested this weekend after she choked out her boyfriend for singing “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore over and over, even when she asked “25 times” for him to stop. Unfortunately, it was her lover’s 26th birthday that evening and the victim was wasted (as birthday boys tend to get), leading to an unfortunate altercation in which Ms. Malson literally started choking the life out of her boyfriend rather than listen to lines like “Savin’ my money and I’m hella happy that’s a bargain, bitch” and “I’ma take your grandpa’s style, I’ma take your grandpa’s style.”
Occupy Wall Street
Even with the best intentions, any community is bound to have some trouble. And though oftentimes that trouble for those cohabiting on Occupy Wall Street seems to becoming from outside forces — the police, the banks, the mayor — occasionally it comes from within.
Tonye Iketubosin, 26 years old and from Crown Heights, has been linked to at least two incidents of sexual assault in the recently sprung-up tent city in Zuccotti Park…one case of which involves a minor.
Crimes and Misdemeanors
Back in November, New York’s local WABC-TV weatherwoman Heidi Jones told police that she had been attacked and almost raped by a Hispanic man in Central Park, who then later followed her home and tried to assault her again outside her apartment. The event had taken place in September, Jones claimed, but she had waited to tell the police until the man had shown up again at her building to harass her.
