No matter how many police reports we read through on a monthly basis, the criminal creativity, stupidity, and craziness never ceases to amaze us.
Just when you think you've seen it all, there's always something
worse. From a mom shooting up her toddler with meth, to another woman trying to hide a pound of meth in her vagina, to a man cutting off a guy's head and limbs with a power saw, and more, we bring you the 10 craziest Phoenix crimes this month:
10.) Bobby Ruiz Allegedly Bites Off Ear of MCSO Detention Officer
An inmate at one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's jails attacked a detention officer, biting part of her ear "completely off." The officer, who's only worked there a year, was doing a cell-search at the Lower Buckeye Jail when 21-year-old Bobby Ruiz jumped on her back and started attacking her. The piece of ear wasn't found, leading to the belief that Ruiz may have swallowed the chunk of her ear.
9.) Andrew Teaters, Gilbert Teacher, Had Sex with 17-Year-Old Student in Classroom, Cops Say
Andrew "A.J." Teaters, a 29-year-old charter school teacher in Gilbert, had sex with a student -- in his classroom, according to police. The 17-year-old girl told police they started flirting at the school, then flirted on Twitter, and that all escalated to their having sex in his classroom. Teaters was arrested at his home in Mesa (where he lives with his wife and kids).
8.) Ian McIntosh, of Buckeye, Robbed a Mentally Handicapped Man, Police Say
Ian McIntosh, a 27-year-old Buckeye resident, shoved a mentally handicapped man off his bicycle and stole his iPad, according to police. McIntosh also threw a beer can at the man before shoving him, breaking his glasses and trying to punch the man while he was lying on the ground, according to court documents
7.) Nikki Hockett Sleeps While 2-Year-Old Daughter Goes for a Stroll Around Neighborhood at 4 a.m.
A man leaving for work around 4:30 a.m. one day found a 2-year-old in his driveway, and the child's mother, 22-year-old Nikki Hockett, showed up to get her kid -- 2 1/2 hours later. Hockett, who was sleeping at her boyfriend's house, said her kid has a knack for unlocking doors. The youngster was fine, but had made it a couple blocks without shoes in her early-morning walk.
