NOPD Seeking Guys Being Craaazy, Making Out
Speedy detective work by the New Orleans Police Department has produced leads in an auto theft case that ended with a car being driven into Lake Pontchartrain. Over the course of investigating the early Friday morning incident, Jefferson Parish police arrested Drew Thompson, 18, and have obtained a warrant for Cameron Villier, 19. Detectives also want to speak with two "persons of interest," Elijah Raines (pictured) and Gene Davis (click through to see the photo).
Zombies, Unicorns on the Loose in Metairie?
Bigfoot's appearance earlier this year must have let fantastical creatures and the undead know that the New Orleans area was a safe space. WDSU reports a road sign in Metairie has been warning drivers, "Caution: Zombies Ahead," all afternoon. The sign, located on Bonnabel Blvd. between W. Esplanade and Veterans, has the look of a normal construction sign, but something appears to have changed it. Earlier in the day, the placard read, "Drivers Warned of Unicorns." The sign suggests a slight chink in the Metairie attitude toward these creatures. When the talk is about unicorns, fear is not the feeling that comes to mind. Pictures here.
TGI Friday's Robber Looked Very Familiar
At the beginning of the day Monday, Othello Hamilton robbed a TGI Friday's in Metairie with a hammer. By the end of Monday, the hammer had come down on him. At 2:30 a.m. Monday, the 29-year-old broke into the restaurant with a shirt over his face, and escaped on foot. But in choosing targets for his crime Hamilton made one crucial miscalculation. Since he worked as a cook at the restaurant, it was pretty easy for employees recognized his voice and appearance. WDSU has the full story here.
Outlaw Paw Paw Sought Payday
From Pretty Boy Floyd to Baby Face Nelson ,the FBI has a long history of giving bank robbers nicknames that make them sound more like guys you chased skirts with, and less like people who carry guns. But for their latest heistmaster, things have gone a little further into friendly territory. Hearing the latest nickname, "Paw Paw Bandit," kind of makes you want to sit on the guy's lap. Nevertheless, the unidentified man is alleged to have pulled off multiple robberies in Jefferson Parish, and authorities don't know who his name.
Alligator Shot While Passing By The Rivershack
Regulars at the River Rd. establishment known as The Rivershack were not rumored to be angling for a spot on Swamp People. All the same, they found themselves in a would-be scene from the show Friday when a 10-ft. alligator climbed onto a Mississippi River levee outside the tavern. Bartender Jeremy Russell snapped photos instead of risking the snapping of his limbs. Authorities then showed up and shot the animal in the head and took it away. Though the reptile was rumored to have grown to at least 15 ft. in people's memories by this morning, ABC-26 has pictures that will always remain the same.
Judge Not Impressed With Candidate's Photoshopping Skills
Here in Orleans, we're no stranger to politicians lobbing over-the-top attack ads that take liberties with the truth. But, apparently, over in the more civilized utopia of Jefferson Parish, aiming a wanton smear campaign at an opponent is a no-go, the JP trackers over at Slabbed report. Current Parish Councilman Chris Roberts, who is running for an at-large seat to expand his power base, scored a temporary restraining order against his opponent. A judge blocked Tim Baudier's recent mailer, which shows Roberts right in the middle of a mafia-style photo lineup of current and former JP brass. Jefferson politicos accused of running a web of corruption? Well, I never!
The Drive-By Diddler
When called to flog the bishop, many men turn to the wonders of the Internet. But the digital likeness of a woman was apparently not realistic enough for one New Orleans man. Lance Williams was arrested Tuesday for allegedly pulling up beside women in his green Ford Expedition while stopped in traffic, and masturbating while staring in their general direction, Da Paper reports. Most of Williams' offenses occurred near the intersection of Veterans and Bonnabel Blvds in Metairie. On Veterans, one woman caught Williams choking the chicken while she was pumping gas. No word yet about his views on Southern Decadence.
