An unpaid debt calls for ramming speed!

Sometimes its not about the money…it’s just the principle of the thing that causes a man to ram his mother’s pick-up truck into the house of another man’s mothe multiple times.

BOSSIER CITY — A man who was upset because he hadn’t been repaid $15 rammed his pickup into the house belonging to the other man’s mother, causing thousands of dollars in damages, Bossier City police said. 

 Randal Scott Gatti, 39, of Bossier City faces charges of criminal property damage.

Bossier City police said Gatti used a pickup to ram a house in the 3000 block of Jamie Place four times late Saturday afternoon.

The house belongs to Glenna McDonald Demoss, who operates a pest control business out of the house. She said her son owed Gatti for driving one of their workers to a job.

No one was home when Gatti showed up to collect his money, she said.

Officers dispatched to the incident said they found Gatti sitting in a heavily damaged pickup parked in the home’s driveway with the engine running. He wasn’t hurt, police said.

The pickup belonged to Gatti’s mother, police said. Gatti took it without permissions, officers said, so they also booked him for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Tony Tagliavore sells you on his coffee pantomime and introduces us to a great American

In these dire times in our nation’s history, when the economy is in flux, healthcare is a constant worry, and our freedoms are being threatened both domestically and internationally, leadership is at a premium.  Thankfully, locals need to look no further than the neighborhood used appliance depot for its next great American.  One of Bossier’s best and brightest, Anthony Tubbs, shares his vision with the masses in a recent interview…and by vision, I mean no discernible platform other than the fact that he is an actual American.  So that’s a start I guess.

If you want to get on the Tubbs train before it leaves the station and goes careening into a ravine, you can check out his campaign here.

Ginsu…so sharp it will cut through your loved one’s carotid artery and still be able to slice tomatoes for a delicious salad later

If you are going to get into a knock down drag out with your old lady, best not to do it in a room where se is familiar with her surroundings and can readily obtain a weapon so that she may adequately express her displeasure with you.

Bossier City police arrested a woman Saturday night after she cut her live-in boyfriend in the neck with a kitchen knife during an argument. Tekara P. Davis, 24, of Bossier City was arrested and booked into the Bossier City Jail on charges of aggravated battery.

Police learned of the incident after personnel at LSU Hospital in Shreveport called to report the victim had driven himself to the emergency room with a non-life threatening wound to the side of his neck.

Upon interviewing the man, officers found out the incident happened at the Parkland Villa Apartments in the 3100 block of Shed Road where the victim and suspect lived together.

A short time later, officers went to the apartment and took Davis into custody.

Davis was also booked on two counts of failure to appear in connection with two unrelated traffic violations.

Merry Christmas Grandma, I got you a knuckle sandwich!

Nothing like spending a little time with the family for Christmas.  Nothing like passing out gifts to your dearest of loved ones…especially when what you are passing out is a holiday helping of ass whipping.  That’s the gift that keeps on giving.

A Bossier City woman was arrested over the Christmas weekend on a variety of charges that include battery of her grandmother and cruelty to a juvenile, Bossier sheriff’s officials say.

Sabra Nicole Tunstall, 32, of the 5200 block of John Wilson Drive, was arrested late Friday after getting into a fight with her 77-year-old grandmother and uncle while holding her child, a release from Sheriff Larry Deen says.

The unidentified grandmother and uncle were trying to get the child away from Tunstall, who the release said had been drinking all day and was trying to leave the residence.

Tunstall was arrested and taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility where she was booked on a charge of simple battery of the infirmed, cruelty to a juvenile and simple battery.

Love in Bossier, 3 times as strong as normal love

Love truly is a many splendored thing…so why stop the splendor at just one?  In Bossier, it is encouraged that you add a couple more and get some mad splendoring on while you’ve got the time and energy.

BOSSIER CITY, LA (WAFB) – A Louisiana woman faces bigamy charges after admitting to authorities she is married to more than one man.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, Bridget Mize, 35, told investigators Tuesday afternoon she is married to three men at the same time.

Deputies said she also confessed she never divorced any of the men.

The marriages all happened in different states.

She first married a man in Dallas County, TX in 1993.

Her second marriage happened in Caddo Parish, LA in 2005.

The third nuptial occurred in Columbia County, AR in 2007.

Detectives said Mize married her third husband after her second husband went to prison.

He was housed at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility, which is the same jail she was taken to for booking on two counts of bigamy.

While this is a true marriage hat trick, there was no indication if the officiers had the comedic timing to throw their hats into her cell in celebration.

This picture will, unfortunately, make more sense as you continue reading

It seems $20 will go a long way in Bossier.  It will buy you a tank of gas, maybe a nice meal at the Red Lobster, or a movie for you and the missus…it will also buy you the gentle touch of a middle schooler wielding foreign objects for your pleasure.

Thomas Smith Jr. pleaded guilty in Bossier Parish District Court this week to two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile, according to Bossier Parish district attorney’s office. The judge ordered a pre-sentence investigation and sentencing is set for a later day.

Prosecutors say Smith, 76, used money to entice the 16-year-olds into his home and have them stick objects, such as cucumbers and sex toys, into his rectum (ASIS Editor’s Note: Damn near killd’em). He paid them $20 for each occurrence, the most recent about in May 2009.

“Im telling you baby, you always double down on 11.”

When strapped for cash, it may not be the most prudent of moves to “borrow” a few bucks from your employer, even though you are totally gonna pay them back.

A Bossier City woman was arrested after stealing $2,000 from her employer.

Joyce Huckabee Pinchera, 58, of the 5700 block of East Texas Street, was arrested Monday by Bossier sheriff’s detectives for stealing $2,000. Pinchera worked for Blakey Auto Plex and told investigators she took the money to pay bills.

But then taking that money, and making a sound financial decision with it in hopes of increasing your new found wealth…totally advisable….especially when you have 11 and the dealer is showing a 2.

She went on to say she attempted to double her money by gambling at Sam’s Town Casino. However, she ended up losing the money and was unable to pay her bills or repay her employer as she had planned.
