Welcome to Half-Baked Headlines where I bring you the craziest, weirdest news stories around. Each week I will bring you the stories that make you shake your head and wonder. Let me introduce you to the crazy world we live in. Enjoy!
This week I bring you a story of wishful youth. Have you ever wished that you could redo your teenage years? A time when life was carefree and full of hope. Charity Johnson, 31, of Longview, TX did more than wish for it. She made it happen. Charity posed as fifteen-year-old orphan who had previously been home schooled. Tamera Lincoln, a nearby resident, took Charity into her home after believing that the girl was an orphan. Lincoln enrolled her as a sophomore at New Life Christian school where Charity gave an alias name and provided the school with documents indicating that she was a fifteen-year-old girl. After Lincoln began to question the situation, she contacted the local police. Imagine their surprise when they realized that she was actually a grown woman. For eight months, Charity was able to pull off this youthful gimmick. Oh, to be that young, twice!
Starbucks has become an American favorite. It’s one of the best places to get coffee made any way you want, breakfast to start your day off right, and tables occupied with half-naked men. At least that is what you might see in the Starbucks in Camden, New Jersey. Lt. Benito Gonzalez, a 17 year veteran of the local police force, was relieved from his duties and charged with disorderly lewdness after the police were called after Lt. Gonzalez sat at a table in the local Starbucks, pulled his pants down, and began masturbating. Maybe Starbucks didn’t serve the type of cream he wanted in his coffee. I bet the locals will never look at that seat again without thinking of “The cop who came to Starbucks.”
