Facebook Thuggin’: Teen Arrested for Threatening Emojis


 A 17-year-old Bushwick resident was arrested on Sunday after cops spotted alleged threats against the NYPD posted to his Facebook page. And the real trigger, apparently, were emojis: specifically, gun emojis pointed at police emojis. He has since been charged with making terrorist threats, in addition to weapons and drugs possession.

According to a criminal complaint, Osiris Aristy was arrested at his home on Wyckoff Avenue at around 2:46 a.m. on Sunday, after an informant with the police department spotted a series of troubling posts on his Facebook page. These, according to the complaint, included photos of himself posing with drugs, gang signs and guns, but cops were primarily concerned about the emoji-heavy “threats” referencing the NYPD.



Aristy, who has a long rap sheet and pleaded guilty to robbery in October, had bail set at $150,000.


Snoop Dogg Arrested In Texas For Weed

Snoop’s tour bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca — a small town in West Texas where Willie Nelson was popped for weed back in 2010. 
 The border patrol ran a standard inspection of the bus with the dog … when the animal alerted the agents to a possible hit in a waste basket in the back of the vehicle.

The agents claim they found a red prescription bottle with several joints inside. The bottle contained under a half-ounce of weed.
Cops say Snoop admitted the dope belonged to him. Snoop has a prescription for cannabis in California, but law enforcement tells us, there is a zero tolerance policy for weed in Texas … regardless of his status in other states.

Snoop was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and released.

Manny Ramirez arrested, charged with battery at Florida home

It’s been a rough year for Manny Ramirez to say the least, and it’s no longer appropriate to simply chalk it up to “Manny being Manny.”

In April the former World Series MVP abruptly retired after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance for the second time in three seasons. He had signed on with the Tampa Bay Rays in the offseason and was expected to be a vital part of their depleted offense.

On Monday, the 39-year-old was arrested and charged with battery following a domestic dispute with his wife at their home in South Florida.

Ramirez reportedly slapped his wife, Juliana, in the face during a bedroom argument, causing her head to hit the bed’s headboard. Juliana Ramirez called the police to avoid further escalation of the situation. According to the police report, she had red swelling on her face and a small bruise on the back of her head but refused medical treatment.

One of the greatest right-handed hitters in baseball over the past decade, Ramirez earned MVP honors for helping the Boston Red Sox end their 86-year title drought in 2004. In 2008, the Red Sox traded their mercurial star to the Los Angeles Dodgers where Ramirez continued to pile up numbers and became a fan favorite while helping the Dodgers to an NL championship series appearance.

But months after signing a two-year, $45 million contract with the club, Ramirez was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for human chorionic gonadotropin — a banned female fertility drug that can be used to mask steroid use.

From that point forward, the “Manny being Manny” phrase that typified the slugger’s happy-go-lucky and sometimes bizarre behavior lost it’s luster.

Ramirez would have been forced to serve a 100-game suspension for a second positive test. So he decided to retire.

Ramirez ended his career with 555 home runs — 14th most in MLB history — had at least 100 RBIs in 13 seasons and a career .312 batting average.

Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones Arrested in Ohio

The 27-year-old cornerback, currently playing for the Bengals, was arrested and taken to the Hamilton County Justice Center jail some time after 3 a.m. for disorderly conduct at a Cincinnati bar , according to WKRC-TV in Ohio.

Court documents say Jones was repeatedly asked to leave the bar after shouting at patrons inside. When authorities arrived to get Jones to leave, he resisted and had to be physically restrained by two officers who reported that Jones tried to escape during the arrest.

The arrest is the latest in a long line of incidents for the former West Virginia Mountaineer. When he was drafted by the Titans in 2005, Jones was on probation for a fight while on campus at West Virginia. Before his rookie season began, he was arrested on charges of assault and vandalism outside a Nashville club.

Six arrests later, Jones has bounced from the Titans to the Cowboys to the Bengals, with a brief stint in the CFL in between. He was suspended for the entire 2007 season in connection to an incident at a Las Vegas strip club that resulted in a man being paralyzed after being shot in the back. In 2008 the Cowboys suspended him for six games for getting into an altercation with his bodyguard.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said players are still subject to discipline for incidents that occur during the lockout.

Jones will be arraigned in court on Monday.

A!  The  Bergen County prosecutor’s office has just issued a press release that Juelz Santana was taken into custody in New Jersey today on four counts of narcotic and weapon offenses.  This stems from 10-month investigation by Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Gang Unit, which lead to the raid of the rapper’s studio a few weeks ago where two hanguns, 17 ounces of marijuana and drug paraphernalia were seized.  (via…)

“GOOGLE STREET VIEW” Helps To Capture Drug-Ring Suspects!


Earth to drug dealers — Google is watching!

Three brazen heroin dealers were captured in Google Street View images working their favorite Brooklyn drug corner, where they peddled their product to hipsters and other dope fiends, law-enforcement sources said yesterday.

Multiple images captured along Jackson Street and Kingsland Avenue by the search engine’s ubiquitous camera car show the trio milling about in front of the Neighborhood Grocery — one of two East Williamsburg bodegas where they set up shop.

“A lot of people sell drugs in front of here. They have to clean up the streets. Children learn what they see,” José Ruiz, 33, an employee of the Neighborhood Grocery, told The Post.

CORNERED: The man in the jacket, and those to his immediate left and right, are alleged members of a drug ring caught in this Google pic.

Across the street at Chela Grocery on Kingsland Avenue, manager Jose Inez said he would close the store from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. because “it was serving as a sanctuary for drug dealers.”

“If you look at the neighborhood, there are a lot of drugs,” Inez said. “You don’t want your kids to walk around a neighborhood with drugs.”

The suspects in the Google photo — identified as Shaundell Dade in the coat, Jamel Pringle to his right and Jonathan Paulino to his left — were among seven dealers arrested yesterday in an NYPD undercover sting operation, said Prosecutor Bridget Brennan.

Six of them have been indicted on multiple counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance. The seventh will be charged and arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court.

The dealers were caught on surveillance video — taken by undercover cops using handheld cameras — stuffing heroin into a magnetic lockbox, which was then hidden behind a metal storefront sign at the Neighborhood Grocery without the owner’s knowledge.

Pringle and Rakwan Williams were captured yesterday outside the bodega featured in the photograph.

Two other dealers — brothers Jonathan and Juan Paulino — were busted at their mother’s Bushwick home, law-enforcement sources said.

Jonathan had a basement apartment where cops found 20 glassines of heroin, marijuana and a packaging laboratory that included envelopes, scales and stamps, the sources said.

The joint NYPD-Special Narcotics Prosecutor’s Office investigation was launched in July after residents complained about the dealers selling dope and crack in open view.

Undercover cops dressed as hipsters made 20 drug buys, purchasing $10 envelopes of heroin stamped with brand names such as “Fed Ex,” “KFC,” “Powerful Impact,” “Magik” and “Crossbones,” the sources said.

In some cases, cops followed the dealers into the bodegas and were given drugs. Police also bought untaxed cigarettes from bodega employees.

“They were catering to the hipster crowd, among other customers,” said one law-enforcement source.




A rap mogul who helped launch Jay-Z‘s career was busted Friday with 42 other people when the feds rolled up a drug ring that controlled much of the pot market in the city.

Dubbed operation “Green Venom,” the feds arrested Kareem (Biggs) Burke after intercepting telephone conversations. According to a federal complaint, Burke and alleged ringleader Geovanny (Manny) Rodriguez Perez discussed “potential marijuana suppliers” in California.

Burke, who co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z and Damon Dash, was spotted last month in Inwood taking a bag full of “narcotics proceeds” out of Perez’s car and putting it in the trunk of his BMW, the court records show.

Perez, who was looking for new contacts after some of his South Florida suppliers were busted, was also in cahoots with Matthew Woodstock Stang, an ad executive for pot-promoting High Times magazine, according to the indictment.

Stang was caught “discussing the quality of marijuana that Stang’s associates could provide” in telephone calls intercepted over the summer, the papers state.

The members of the ring face 10 years to life if convicted of conspiracy to distribute 1,000 kilos of marijuana.

“This isn’t just a group that controlled one block, one neighborhood,” said Jim Hayes special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“They dominated the wholesale marijuana market in New York for 20 years.”

And while court papers revealed that Perez dangled a child on his lap during one of his meetings with Burke. Still, he was to be feared.

“He has either wiped out or threatened to wipe out competitors,” Hayes said.

Starting in 1992, Perez’s ring made more than $20 million by trucking tons of marijuana into the city where the dope was split up and distributed by three cells, the papers state.

The marijuana was masked by shipping it in tractor-trailers filled with flowers, a law enforcement source said. The pot was packed into separate boxes marked with an “x,” the source said. Perez paid his suppliers by using couriers who took “commercial flights with large amounts of cash hidden in their luggage,” the papers state.

The investigation that derailed the ring was launched 18 months ago after investigators sniffed out the money trail, the law enforcement source said. In addition to rounding up the ring, the feds seized $1 million in drug profits and 177 pounds of pot.

Burke and Stang appear to be buddies and both have known Perez for some time, court papers show.

High Times editor Dan Skye said Stang “was an ad guy” for the magazine. When asked if he’d heard from Stang since his arrest, Skye replied, “Nope.”
