FLORIDA – man goes on deadly shooting spree after girlfriend reneges on Triple Whopper promise

Via: Raw Story


A Florida man allegedly went on a shooting spree this week, killing a 70-year-old man and wounding a 7-year-old boy, after he got in an argument with a girlfriend who refused to buy a “Triple Whopper” hamburger for him.

According to WPEC, 28-year-old Jamie Marie Young told Port St. Lucie police that she met 24-year-old Brandon Lamar Hawkins at a local Burger King on Tuesday to borrow a laptop for her daughter and to buy him a Triple Whopper.

But the meeting ended after the two argued over the status of their relationship. Young explained to police that Hawkins had as many as four girlfriends.

“After the meeting, Hawkins told police he became angry over not getting the Triple Whopper he wanted, so he drove to Young’s house at 213 SW Kentwood Road,” WPEC reported.
A police report said that Hawkins put a gun to the head of Young’s daughter. When Young tried to escape from the home with her 7-year-old son, Hawkins apparently opened fire.

She later found her son bleeding from stomach wounds in the yard, and her 70-year-old stepfather had suffered multiple gunshots to the head.

Florida: ALLEDGED Underwear Theft Leads Man To 100th Arrest

Via: BrowardPalm Beach.com

If you ever need to find 50-year-old Joseph Wilson, check the jails first (Victoria Secret, second?) — he’s actually in the St. Lucie County jail right now, marking his 100th trip to the slammer.

According to the Port St. Lucie Police Department, a security guard from a Bealls department store called the cops Thursday saying he watched Wilson stuff $174 worth of socks and underwear under his clothing and walk out of the place.

Wilson then jumped into a white minivan and told the driver to “take off” — which the driver didn’t do.

Police say Wilson then ran away, before a witness spotted him hiding in some bushes outside a Wendy’s.

The cops eventually found him hiding behind a Dumpster behind a medical-supply store, according to an arrest report.

Police say they found the stolen socks and undies, and Wilson told them he was having “hard times.”

And that, ladies and gentlemen, was Wilson’s 100th arrest.

According to the police report, he’s been arrested 37 times on felony charges, 47 times on misdemeanors, with 15 arrests for reasons unknown. Add in today and we’ve got 100, folks.

We immediately went to the cops to make sure this guy had really just been arrested for the 100th time, and sure enough, Thomas Nichols of the Port St. Lucie Police Department tells us it’s true.

Out of all the moments spent in police-provided silver bracelets throughout Wilson’s life, he’s been convicted of ONLY 35 crimes — six felonies, 26 misdemeanors, and three unknown.

Still, getting off the hook around 65 percent of the time isn’t that bad.

Wilson’s been charged with two misdemeanors this time around — retail theft and resisting recovery of property.

He’s currently being held on $20,000 bond.
