Son In Room During Prostitution Arrest
If you can even call her a Mom.
BENSALEM, Pa. - Bensalem Township police arrested a mother for alleged prostitution at a motel. They say her 7-year-old son witnessed her performing sex acts and she lived in squalor.
Police said they found a terrible case of innocence lost at the tired motel on Old Lincoln Highway, Fox 29's Julie Kim reported.
Police said 36-year-old Catherine Thomas engaged in the world's oldest profession right in front of her son.
According to Bensalem Director of Public Safety Frank Harran, "This lady had her 7-year-old son, while she was servicing Johns, he was locked in the bathroom and he lived in the shower stall and that's where he played. There were also when he was underneath a desk where she put him kind of with a dog cage in front of it to lock him in there."
How long had this been going on? Police said Thomas moved around a lot and had stayed at the Mall Motel for more than three months.
Those who stay at the motel said they never knew
"I don't even know what was going down," one man said.
But police said someone took notice. An anonymous tip came in Monday. An officer, posing as a John, arrested Thomas and found the boy.
"We found him in the shower stall in deplorable conditions. The room smelled like human feces and urine. There was dirt everywhere -- dirty clothes, dirty underwear," Harran said.
Children and youth services now have custody of the boy. No doubt, the entire experience has left an imprint.
"He told the officers that, when he sees mom engaged in her activity, that he said has to pray to God for forgiveness," Harran said. "I've been doing this for 23 years, and this is probably the top 10 things that I'll remember," Harran said.
As for Thomas, Harran said, "I'm not so sure we can call her a mother or a parent."
Thomas has been charged with prostitution and endangering the welfare of a child. Police said she also faces counts for marijuana and drug paraphernalia also found in the motel room.
She was taken to the Bucks County prison in lieu of $20,000 bail and her court appearance will be on April 29.
Three dogs Thomas also kept in the motel were transported to a humane society for evaluation, police said.

L.A. Stripper Subs for Student at H.S. Reunion
I think that she should have sent a dude.
Why go to your 10-year high school reunion when you can just hire a stripper to do it for you?

Instead of attending her 10-year high school reunion in Palos Verdes, our newfound hero, Andrea Wachner, sent a stripper and filmed the whole thing.

High School Reunion Prank
Watch Video

A local woman didn't want to go to her high school reunion. So, she sent a ringer in her place.
Posing as Wachner, exotic dancer Cricket, who attended the reunion wearing fishnets, a tight black dress and spike-heeled boots, told classmates she had reconstructive surgery and suffered from amnesia.
It sounds a little soapy, but the story had a hint of truth to it, ABC News reported Tuesday:
It wasn't completely unbelievable, because some had already heard that the real-life Wachner was in an accident after high school -- her car was totaled and she had been injured, but she had never suffered from amnesia. Most of them had not seen or talked to Wachner since high school, but many found her new profession suspect: Cricket as Andrea said she was working as a stripper to help pay her graduate school tuition.
Doubters were put at ease as Wachner -- stationed in a nearby hotel room -- fed Cricket information through an earpiece.
And for our viewing pleasure, Wachner, 31, filmed the whole thing for her documentary "I Remember Andrea."
After posting snippets on YouTube, a few class of 1995ers were displeased.
"There's definitely a contingency of people who hate me because of this," Wachner told ABC News.

Wire in bra deflects bullet during break-in

DETROIT — The metal underwire in a Detroit woman's bra is being credited with deflecting a bullet fired at her during a break-in at a neighbor's home.
Detroit police Officer Leon Rahmaan says the 57-year-old woman apparently looked out her window Tuesday when one of three men fired the shot.
He says the slug smashed through her window pane before hitting the bra's underwire. It did not penetrate her skin.
Police say she may have gone to the window after a burglar alarm at the house next door sounded. Her neighbor was not at home at the time.
The suspects drove away after the shooting.

Cops: Exotic dancer blitzed by rival with stiletto

AKRON, Ohio – Ohio police say a 52-year-old woman was attacked on her first day as an exotic dancer by a jealous co-worker wielding a stiletto heel.
Akron police Lt. Rick Edwards says the woman was assailed Friday night by a co-worker who didn't think the club needed more dancers. Police say one of the dancers took her stiletto and repeatedly struck the woman in the face as she walked into the basement dressing room.
The woman was treated at a hospital and received seven staples. She has declined to press charges against her assailant.
Police say the woman took the job because she needed the extra money. She has refused to talk to police about what happened.

Driving teacher allegedly drunk during lesson

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. — A driving instructor who police say was drunk while giving someone a driving lesson can stay out of jail but will lose his license for a year. Daniel Winsky, 53, of Salem was convicted Thursday of operating under the influence while giving a lesson from the passenger seat of a car. He was sentenced to 18 months probation but won't be a licensed driver for one year.
Winsky was not behind the wheel during the December 2007 lesson in Ipswich, but prosecutors say he was in control of the passenger side brakes in the specially-fitted car and also moved the wheel during the lesson.
Police pulled Winsky over shortly after a convenience store clerk smelled alcohol on his breath, then saw him enter the auto school's car. Winsky claimed he was not drunk during the lesson.

Hulk Hogan Says 'I Totally Understand OJ' Simpson

Hulk Hogan is sounding homicidal over the way his wife Linda dumped him, forced him out of his $18 million mansion, allegedly started spending his money at the rate of $40,000 a month and dating "some shaggy-haired pool boy 30 years her junior," Rolling Stone reports.
"I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody's throat," he told the magazine.
"You live half a mile from the 20,000-square-foot home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife . . . I totally understand OJ. I get it."
He and Linda are battling it out in a Florida divorce court, where Linda's attorney claims she's entitled to use the car and that Hogan's claims against her are merely an attempt to control her love life.

Wis. nurse called out of surgery and laid off
MADISON, Wis. — A nurse was called out of surgery so a manager could tell her she was being laid off. Dean Health said the surgery was minor and the patient wasn't affected, but the manager who summoned the nurse from surgery violated medical protocol. Dean Health spokesman Paul Pitas said the incident happened at Dean's West Clinic in Madison on Wednesday or Thursday.
Pitas said there was a period of time in which a nurse wasn't present during the procedure. He said while there were other clinical staff present, the absence of a nurse is a violation of patient care procedures.
The Madison-based health care provider announced Wednesday that it planned to "immediately" lay off 90 employees.
Pitas declined to name the employees involved or what type of surgery the nurse was attending when she was called away

Surgeons find fir tree 'growing inside patient's lung
Russian surgeons have claimed to have found a two-inch fir tree growing inside a man's lung.
The amazing 'discovery' was apparently made when they opened up Artyom Sidorkin, 28, to remove what they thought was a serious tumour.
Mr Sidorkin had complained of extreme pain in his chest and had been coughing up blood. Doctors were convinced he had cancer.
"We were 100 per cent sure," said Vladimir Kamashev, a surgeon in Izhevsk in the Urals. "We did X-rays and found what looked exactly like a tumour.
"I had seen hundreds before, so we decided on surgery."
Before removing part of the man's lung, the surgeon investigated the tissue.
"I thought I was hallucinating," said Mr Kamashev. "I asked my assistant to have a look: 'Come and see this – we've got a fir tree here'. He nodded in shock. I blinked three times as I was sure I was seeing things."
Medical staff said that Mr Sidorkin must have inhaled a seed, which later sprouted into a small fir tree inside his lung.
The spruce, which was said to be touching the man's capillaries and causing severe pain, was removed.
"It was very painful. But to be honest I did not feel any foreign object inside me," said Mr Sidorkin. "I'm so relieved it's not cancer."
There was no independent verification of the surgeon's claims.

Hair Stylist Keeps Armed Robber as Sex Slave

The Moscow TimesIn what is either the weirdest Russian crime story of the year so far or a new low in yellow crime journalism, a female hair stylist in the Kaluga region is suspected of holding an armed robber in captivity as a sex slave for two days after he unsuccessfully tried to knock over her beauty salon. Attentive Crime Watch readers will need little more than the first paragraph of this post to understand that this bizarre saga was relayed by the intrepid crime hacks over at the web site, which, together with newspaper Tvoi Den, is setting the bar extremely high for sensationalist scoops. According to, the events unfolded on the evening of March 14 as the stylist was wrapping up her shift at the salon in the Kaluga region town of Meshchovsk. The robber, a 32-year-old man identified by as "Viktor," burst into the salon at around 5 p.m. waving a pistol and ordered all of the stylists and clients to hit the floor and toss him their money. At this point, 28-year-old Olga, whom describes as a "delicate" girl trained in martial arts, was apparently still standing when she offered to hand over her cash. But when Viktor tried to accept her contribution, Olga surprised him with a quick punch to the chest, knocking the wind out of him before she flipped him to the ground. Olga proceeded to tie Viktor up with a hair-dryer cord, gagged him and dragged him into a storage room. Curiously, reports, Olga instructed the others to keep working, telling them that the police would soon arrive. But this feel-good moment for the good guy proved ephemeral. Things soon turned ugly, according to The police did not come. And after the other stylists and clients went home for the evening, Olga told Viktor to "take off his underwear" and, with apologies to John Cougar Mellencamp, let her do as she pleases, lest she call the cops, said. She tied him to the radiator with handcuffs covered in frilly pink fabric, gave him some Viagra and had her way with him several times over the next 48 hours. When she finally let him go on the evening of March 16, Viktor had been "squeezed like a lemon," reported. First, he went to the hospital to have his injured genitals treated; then he went to police and filed a complaint asking that Olga be brought up on criminal charges for committing "actions of a sexual nature" that left him with injured sexual organs, according to a copy of the complaint posted on Olga was apparently incensed when she learned of the complaint. She had, after all, even tried to be nice to her purported captive. "What a jerk," quoted her as saying. "Yeah, there were a few times. But I bought him new jeans, gave him food and drink, and gave him 1,000 rubles when he left." The following day, Olga filed a complaint with police, asking that Viktor be charged in the salon robbery. posted a copy of her statement as well. "I don't know what's going to happen now," the web site quoted a local police officer as saying. "We could put both of them behind bars: him for robbery, her for rape and assault." I'm exhausted.

Man jailed for dodging child support for 14 kids

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Authorities in Michigan say a man fathered 14 children with 13 different women and owes more than $530,000 in unpaid child support.
The Flint Journal reports 42-year-old Thomas Frazier was jailed Thursday. Court records say he hasn't made a support payment in six years.
The newspaper says the unemployed man could be held for 90 days if he doesn't pay $27,900.
Frazier says he thinks he fathered only three of the children and that it's unrealistic for authorities to expect him to pay child support that was $3,000 a month at one point.
Frazier remains held at the Genesee County Jail. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could speak for him.


Police nab Norwegian pair during high-speed sex
Buzz Up

A Norwegian man faces a heavy fine and a driving ban after police caught him having sex with his girlfriend while speeding on the motorway, police said Monday.
The unnamed couple, a 28-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman, were caught in the act late on Easter Sunday by traffic police on the E18 highway, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) west of Oslo.
Officers who clocked the couple's silver Mazda 323 racing at 133 kilometres per hour in a 100 zone realised they were doing more than just breaking the speed limit, police told AFP.
"It was veering from one side to the other because the woman was sitting on the man's lap while he was driving and doing the act, shall we say," said Tor Stein Hagen, a superintendent with Soendre Buskerund district police.
"He couldn't see much because her back was in the way," he added.
"Why they did it on a highway with such a high risk we don't know."
After following the couple for nearly a kilometre, officers pulled the car over at a service station.
"We have taken away his driving licence because of the danger that he caused," Hagen said.
Prosecutors will decide within the next week what his punishment will be, with police having filmed the incident to use as evidence against the driver.
Hagen said he expected the man to face a fine of "several thousand Norwegian crowns" and a lengthy driving ban.
