Woman Spends 6 Months In Jail After Police Mistake Sand From Her Stress Ball For Cocaine

Published

An Atlanta woman spent six months behind bars after she was arrested for drug possession when police mistook sand from her stress ball for cocaine. Ju’zema Goldring ended up spending six months in Fulton County jail because she couldn’t afford bail. Some of that time was even spent in solitary confinement, she told NBC 46, and she was left in jail for four months after a crime lab conclusively determined that the white powder on her person wasn’t drugs at all. Now she’s suing the city.

The US Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit handed Goldring a legal victory. They ruled last week that the two Atlanta police officers involved in the arrest are not entitled to immunity from the civil lawsuit Goldring is bringing against them. She claims that she was falsely accused of both jaywalking and cocaine trafficking based on a shoddy field test of the sand from the stress ball in her purse at the time.

The entire arrest seems pretty dodgy when you hear about it. Atlanta officers Vladimir Henry and Juan Restrepo stopped Goldring for allegedly jaywalking on October 10, 2015. They took her to the police station for some unknown reason and then cut open the stress ball in her purse to test the sand within it for drugs using a Nark II field test. The problem is, those tests, while simple to use, are VERY prone to user errors and misreadings.

The officers really seemed to want to arrest her. Goldring claims that Officer Henry “huffed and puffed” while performing multiple field tests on the powder from the stress ball but none of them changed color as they would have if they contained narcotics. Henry disagrees with Goldring’s claims, saying that the tests resulted in a “bluish-purple” liquid that the officers agreed was a “faint positive.”

Goldring was cleared of any wrongdoing on November 17, 2015. It was on that date that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations definitively concluded that there was zero cocaine or anything illegal on Goldring’s person at the time of her arrest. However, the state didn’t bother to dismiss any charges against her until March 21, 2016, meaning she had to stay in prison the entire time.

It’s difficult for Goldring to remember what she went through the night she was arrested. “When they first stopped me, I was asking them why they were stopping me and then I feel like the third time I asked he was like oh because you jaywalked. And I was like when and where did I jaywalk,” she recalled to CBS 46. As for the drug charges, she was beside herself. “I was just confused; and I know I don’t do drugs, so it was like a scary feeling.” Here’s hoping she gets some justice!

Former Playboy Bunny Reveals Insane Rules For Living In Mansion Set By Hugh Hefner

A former Playboy Bunny has revealed the strict rules Hugh Hefner set for women living in the infamous mansion. Jenna Bentley, who’s originally from Montana, lived in the Bunny House next to the mansion for years. And while she loved her time there, she has admitted that it came with some pretty insane requirements that she found difficult to uphold at times.

Background checks are the bare minimum. Before Bunnies are ever even considered as possible residents of the Playboy mansion, a rigorous background check is performed to make sure that they’re not harboring any serious criminals there. That one’s pretty understandable, right?

There’s a curfew in place. This is where things get a bit tougher. Bunnies are told that they must be back in the mansion by 9 p.m. However, while this might be tough for some people to abide by, Bentley didn’t mind it so much.

If you missed curfew, you had to face the consequences. Bentley did reveal that not being back at the house by 9 p.m. was dealt with in a pretty hardcore way: the women had to spend the night sleeping on the lawn and were not allowed back in until the following day, no exceptions. Better hope it’s not raining!

Meeting men was out of the question. Another strictly upheld rule involved the women meeting other men. None of the Bunnies were allowed to have boyfriends and if it was discovered that one of the women had met a man, she was immediately kicked out of the mansion, no questions asked.

However, the house did have some upsides. Bentley recalled that living there was like living in Barbie’s Dream House because everything they wanted was at their fingertips. They had a phone they used to call “Dial-A-Dream” because if you pressed 0, you could ask for absolutely anything and it would be brought to you, 24/7/365.

Bentley never slept with Hefner. However, she did walk in on him with three different women at one point. According to Bentley, he had three separate rooms for his official girlfriends and wives, while the women not in these categories had to live in the Bunny house. Still, she seemed to have a pretty good experience there!

Judge Requests Cardi B’s Herpes Test Results Ahead Of Lawsuit Hearing

Published

A judge has ordered a US medical center to release the results of Cardi B’s STD tests as part of her defamation lawsuit against vlogger Latasha Kebe. Judge William M. Ray II told the Center for Women’s Pelvic Health at UCLA to put out “any and all medical records within your possession related solely to the testing for Herpes and HPV for Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar,” Billboard reports.

Cardi B’s defamation case makes some serious accusations. The rapper’s case against vlogger Latasha Kebe accuses Kebe of starting a “malicious campaign” to ruin Cardi’s reputation. That campaign included the release of dozens of videos that accused Cardi B of prostitution, drug use, and having STDs.

The STD results are important to Cardi’s case. This is because if her test results proved that she was STD-free, that could help her win the case. Kebe’s attorneys were the ones demanding the results, but according to Billboard, Cardi B’s attorneys had already voluntarily submitted the evidence on the rapper’s behalf earlier on in the case.

The case has been going on for more than two years. Early on after Cardi B’s filing, Kebe tried to countersue by claiming that the rapper’s fans had been threatening her on social media, but a judge ruled there was “no evidence” of this being the case. Then, early in November, Cardi B asked a judge to postpone the trial until January due to a family emergency, which Kebe claimed was fabricated. However, a judge ruled in Cardi’s favor.

The trial will begin on January 5. It remains to be seen which way this case will go, but hopefully justice is served.

Woman Climbs Into Lion Enclosure At Zoo With 2 Dozen Roses And Throws $1 Bills At ‘King’ Cat

Police are calling for the public’s help to locate a woman who climbed over a barrier near the Bronx Zoo’s lion exhibit and began professing her love for one of the animals while throwing $1 bills. Cellphone footage obtained by NBC NY shows the woman wearing a red dress and a blonde wig approaching the lion with two dozen roses as she tells the person filming “I miss him so much.”

The woman continually confessed her love for the lion. The video shows the woman waving at other people as she tells the lion, “King, I love you. I came back for you!” She then starts dancing before throwing money at the animal.

The zoo’s staff arrived too late to do anything about it. While other visitors to the zoo did alert Bronx Zoo staff to what was going on, by the time they reached the exhibit, she’d already left the scene and was unable to be located.

Thankfully, neither the animal nor the woman was ever in any danger. The Bronx Zoo said in a statement that while the woman did climb over a barrier, she remained in a different area from the lion. “The woman did not enter the exhibit and was never in the same space as the lions which are separated from zoo visitors by a wide moat,” the zoo said. “The incident lasted only a couple of minutes and the woman was gone when staff arrived on scene. We have an NYPD substation in the park and are working closely with them to resolve this situation with this individual. The Bronx Zoo has a zero-tolerance policy in matters such as this and will aggressively seek prosecution against this individual and anyone who violates park safety rules.”

This might be the same woman from 2019. One of the witnesses believes that, while the woman hasn’t been identified, they believe she’s Myah Autry, the woman who pulled the same stunt back in 2019. At the time, Autry, 34, was charged with two counts of criminal trespassing. She said at the time: “I fear nobody. No animal, no human, no one. So no, I wasn’t fearing of the lion because the lion loved me. That’s why he came to me and I let the lion know: Lion, I love you.” She failed to appear at a court appearance and was arrested in October 2020 and transferred to Coney Island Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
