JOHNSON COUNTY JAIL
Telly Shadell Corey told the arresting officer he thought his victim was enjoying it, according to the report.
No low-cost fare is worth this.
A man on a Megabus masturbated for three hours in front of a “terrified” female passenger, cops say.
According to the police report obtained by the Smoking Gun, Telly Shadell Corey, 41, of Tennessee, was arrested at a bus station in Coralville, Iowa, on Sunday. He admitted to pleasuring himself, the report says, because he thought “since the victim didn’t say anything to him she was enjoying it.”
The complaint was phoned in en route so law enforcement met Corey’s bus at the station, TV outlet KCRG reported.
He was charged with indecent exposure, a misdemeanor, according to the Johnson County Iowa Jail roster.
The complaint alleges that Corey began playing with himself in his sweatpants before exposing himself in front of a “terrified” woman and “masturbating up to three hours.”
As of Friday, Corey remained in custody, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office told The Huffington Post. He’s due in court for a preliminary hearing April 21.
Darwin has been busy… this woman escaped, but maybe shouldn’t have.
Woman attempts to pet bison in Yellowstone National Park
By Dustin Klemann – MTN News
National Park Week kicked off Saturday and along with it, a very close encounter.
The video shot by Eugena True shows a woman attempting to pet a bison near Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Park.
The bison, wasn’t having it, lifting his head to brush her off.
Prior to the recorded video, the woman interacted with the bison .
“She was using dramatic gestures mimicking him — bowed arms, wobbling to and fro as if he was big and slow and frumpy,” True stated.
Fortunately, the woman is able to walk away without comeuppance from the animal; a fate not afforded to others last year who made the news.
Remember, Yellowstone National Park isn’t a petting zoo and you could be held responsible and fined if an incident were to occur.
No word if the woman was fined.

DON’T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!
Maine State Police are investigating a possible attempted suicide after a man allegedly shot himself in the head with a flare gun on Tuesday.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Stephen McCausland said that two motorists pulled 65-year-old Daniel Abbott of Portland from his truck on I-295 in Freeport after noticing that the vehicle was on fire.
Jayson Forgues reportedly used his fire extinguisher to put out the fire while Paul Oleston dragged Abbott from the truck.
“The pickup had been modified to run on propane and troopers say if the fire had got out of control, the propane tank in the truck’s bed likely would have exploded,” McCausland noted.
Troopers indicated that Abbott shot himself three times. At least one of the flares caused injuries and burns to his head. Abbott was being treated for burns at Maine Medical Center. His condition was described as serious.
Man fatally shot while photographing people firing guns in Sutton
Alaska Dispatch News
April 18, 2016
An Anchorage man was shot and killed Saturday while filming or photographing people firing guns in Sutton, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Troopers said in a Monday dispatch that they were informed that 30-year-old Adam C. Malaby had been shot at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, at a location near Jonesville Mine Road. First responders arrived to find people performing CPR on Malaby.
“Investigation revealed Malaby had stepped in the line of fire while attempting to video or photograph others shooting and was shot by another individual that was firing a .40 caliber pistol,” troopers wrote.
According to troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain, the incident — which appeared to be accidental — did not occur at a formally designated shooting range in Sutton. It wasn’t immediately clear how many people had been firing guns at the time.
“The area where they were shooting in is an area commonly used as a shooting range,” DeSpain said.
Malaby was flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, where he was declared dead. His next of kin have been notified.
Troopers said the shooting remains under investigation.
Teenager shot in shoulder by 42-year-old man while playing with water guns in Spring
Posted: 7:12 PM, April 16, 2016Updated: 6:11 PM, April 17, 2016
HOUSTON – A 15-year-old girl was in the hospital Saturday after deputy constables said a 42-year-old man shot her at a family barbecue in Spring.
“It was crazy, like you would never expect somebody to bring a gun to a barbecue, or a family gathering at all,” said neighbor Micah Stewart.

Chairs sat in front of the home on Precious Place and Roth Forest Saturday night, with water guns nearby.
“We come around here to get home and there’s two people playing, like they’re having a water gun fight,” said neighbor Rasheed Seals.
But deputy constables said somehow a real gun got in the mix.
“The man went over there to his car to get his dry clothes and he must have had the gun so he started playing with it and tried to do this and I thought he probably had it on safety and he accidentally shot the girl in her collar bone area,” said Stewart.
They said that Jason Speights shot a 15-year-old girl in her shoulder, an inch from her neck.
“Cy Creek EMS arrived on scene, tended to the female who is reported to be in stable condition,” said Lt. Daniel Garza with Harris County Constable Precinct 4.
A stray bullet hit a car about five houses away. It became a scary reminder for young neighbors.
“Don’t play with guns, not the right choice,” said Seals.
The girl is expected to recover and the man has been charged with deadly conduct.

EASINGTON COLLIERY, England, April 19 (UPI) — British police busted a bungling burglar who officers said left a trail of white paint footprints from the scene of the crime to his own front door.
The Durham Constabulary said investigators responded to a break-in at a second-hand store in the town of Easington Colliery and they soon discovered the culprit had spilled a tin of white paint inside the store and apparently walked through the spill.
The officers followed the trail of white footprints all the way to the home of Andrew Mark Connor, 27, who they said had white paint on his shoes and stolen goods from the store in his back yard.
Police said Connor was arrested within 30 minutes of the crime being reported Feb. 17.
Connor appeared before magistrates this month and was handed a community rehabilitation order and ordered to pay $144 compensation to the owners of the store.
“Some offenses of burglary are more challenging to solve than others, in this case the offender left us some very obvious clues. His house was close to the shop and the footwear impressions led us easily to where he had hidden the stolen property,” Detective Constable Darren Cresswell said.
Angry Chinese construction workers duel with bulldozers
Apr. 18, 2016 4:29 AM EDT
BEIJING (AP) — Police in northern China say an argument between construction workers escalated into a demolition derby-style clash of heavy machinery that left at least two bulldozers flipped over in a street.
In online video taken Saturday, several bulldozers are seen ramming each other while passenger cars scurry away from the cloud of dust.
The video shows one driver running unhurt out of his toppled bulldozer, a fast-moving type also known as a wheel loader, while a friendly bulldozer tries to lift it back up.
The construction workers were from two companies competing for business, Xu Feng, a local government spokesman in Hebei province’s Xingtang county, said Monday. He said he couldn’t
China’s construction sector has fallen on hard times, with growth down by two-thirds from its peak a decade ago. Real estate construction represents close to a quarter of China’s economy, a far higher proportion than other major countries, and its slowdown is now sending ripples through industrial sectors such as steel, glass and cement, causing waves of layoffs.
