VERO BEACH, Florida – A 49-year-old man told deputies he didn’t want to be arrested because the jail in Vero Beach doesn’t serve beer.
On Saturday, the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office received a call about an intoxicated person standing in the roadway near the Vero Beach Applebee’s.
Deputies made contact with Terry Whitmore who was sitting on the side of the road and advised that he would leave the area immediately. He also apologized and said he lived in the homeless camp behind the location.
“I watched as Whitmore then looked back at me and turned and walked onto 53rd Avenue between Applebee’s and Walmart,” the deputy wrote in the report.
Whitmore then walked into the middle of the road and straddled the yellow line, swaying back and forth into oncoming traffic.
Then, a white 4-door Toyota stopped in the roadway to avoid striking Whitmore. The vehicle waited to proceed until Whitmore was away from the vehicle.
The deputy then rushed to Whitmore and detained him before he caused another issue in Vero Beach. Whitmore had a strong odor of alcohol emitting from his person.
Whitmore said he did not want to go to jail because they do not serve beer, but placed both hands in front of him and said, “I am ready,” the report said.
Whitmore was arrested and charged with disorderly intoxication. As of today, he’s still at the Indian River County Jail.
Man Accused Of Repeatedly Sending Sex Workers To Strip On Neighbor’s Porch
That’s just not neighborly.
A Nebraska man is facing charges of pandering, soliciting prostitution and disturbing the peace after police say he hired sex workers to strip on his neighbor’s front porch ― at least 75 times ― while he watched from across the street.
Douglas Goldsberry, 45, an Omaha chef who lives in the suburb of Elkhorn, began the unwanted strip shows in May 2013, about a month after his neighbors, a 30-something couple with two toddlers, moved in across the street, according to WOWT-TV.
“It’s very twisted,” Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine told KETV. “It’s obviously a little bit hard to imagine, to fathom, that somebody would go to these lengths to have women appear at a neighbor’s house, so he could watch them.”
The unwanted front-porch strip shows happened 25 to 30 times per year, police said. The family often feared for their safety, especially when the performers demanded payment, according to NBC 26.
“The previous owners had a little bit of the same problem,” a neighbor told WOWT.
Deputies conducted surveillance on the home in March and said they witnessed two women exposing their breasts, while another stripped completely naked.
Goldsberry was arrested on Wednesday, the same day his wife filed for divorce, according to the Omaha World-Herald. He allegedly told a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy that he masturbated from inside his home across the street while watching the stripteases, the paper reported.
Prosecutor Eric Fabian said deputies found Goldsberry at an Omaha hotel with a suicide note and a power cord tied into a noose.
Goldsberry is being held on a $100,000 bond. The judge rejected his request for bail reduction so he could get mental help, according to WOWT.
