Man Stabbed by Frothy Femme Fatale at Fisherman’s Wharf


A woman was arrested for allegedly throwing a milkshake at a man and then stabbing him with a knife outside of a business in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf on Tuesday night, a police spokesman said today.

Timarrah “Pretty Ass” Norris, 18, a San Francisco resident, was arrested in connection with the stabbing reported at about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday in the 2800 block of Jones Street, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The 44-year-old victim, a customer in the business, had gotten into an argument and then Norris threw the milkshake at him, Esparza said. Norris and a juvenile girl went outside along with the victim and the argument turned into a physical scuffle in which Norris allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the back, according to Esparza.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, Esparza said. Norris and the girl fled but were taken into custody. Norris was booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon while the girl was released, Esparza said.


Wendy’s Customer Goes Off on Drive-Thru Employee: “There’s No Cheese in Hamburger!”

Wendy's Cheeseburger

C’mon, people. Stop disrespecting fast food. This is why we can’t have nice things. Witness this video of a Wendy’s customer “losing [his] s–t” over a cheeseburger. Excuse us, hamburger.

“Is there cheese in hamburger? There’s no cheese in hamburger,” this man screams at the employee working the drive-thru, who should have yelled back, “Is there walking in drive-thrus? There’s no walking in drive-thrus.”

The man, who received a cheeseburger instead of a hamburger and wants his money back fast (“Fast!”), continued berating the employee, “When you have a cheeseburger, you have a cheeseburger. If you have hamburger, you have hamburger.”

(If anyone is still having trouble comprehending the difference between a hamburger and cheeseburger, just order the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. It’s better anyway.)

$3.25 Ice-Cream Theft Lands Man in Jail for 71 Days


A 20-year-old man has been sentenced to the 71 days he spent in jail after stealing a $3.25 ice-cream sundae. Court records show that Tobias Franklin also was ordered to pay restitution. Franklin pleaded no contest May 29 to robbery by sudden snatching — a third-degree felony — and resisting merchandise recovery.

On March 20, he ordered the sundae at Goff’s Ice Cream on Orange Blossom Trail near Church Street. When the shop owner told him the price, Franklin grabbed the dish from the man’s hand and left. The owner ran after Franklin for about a block, then went back and got his car and followed Franklin, who was on foot, until police arrived and arrested him.

In December 2011, Franklin was convicted in Orange County of burglary of a conveyance and petty theft of $100 or more. He has no fixed address but had been staying with a relative, records show.

Woman Bites Into Cheeseburger, Finds Razor Blade


Willits, Calif. (AP) — Health officials plan to keep closer watch on a Burger King restaurant in Mendocino County where a customer reported getting a cheeseburger with a 2-inch-long razor blade in it.

Police officers in the town of Willits determined the one-edged razor blade resident Yolanda Orozco said she bit into on June 2 is the same kind employees use to scour the restaurant’s revolving flame broilers, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported Friday.

The officers also found several loose blades lying above the food preparation area, near condiments and on a counter. They think Orozco’s burger was spiked accidentally when a blade fell or was folded into the meat, Willits Police Chief Gerry Gonzalez told the Press Democrat. She was uninjured, and police do not plan to pursue fines or charges, he said.

Orozco called the police after she found the blade in a cheeseburger that two men had bought for her at the Willits Burger King. Officers confiscated the food and the bag it came in, and visited the restaurant the same night.

The Burger King Corp. issued a statement saying the franchise’s employees would receive additional food safety training. “Burger King’s strict food handling procedures clearly outline that razor blades are not permitted in or near food preparation areas at any time,” the company said.

Mendocino County Environmental Health Director David Jensen said Friday that inspectors “will be revisiting the Burger King in Willits throughout this year.”

Food Importer Charged in Cheese-Smuggling Scheme

A Burnaby [British Columbia]-based food importer has been charged with smuggling cheese into Canada.

In court documents, the Canada Border Services Agency alleges Manuel De Oliveira either under declared, or failed to declare, quantities on 29 separate cheese shipments. According to a search warrant, the investigation began in 2008 when a border agent with a sharp nose detected something was off in a shipment of grapes and grape juice.

A closer examination turned up three pallets, wrapped in black plastic, that were loaded with 2,200 kilograms of cheese in 235 boxes. The shipment was allegedly bound for Burnaby’s Beira Mar Importers, which is owned by De Oliveira.

A year later, the CBSA intercepted a shipment of two varieties of Portuguese cheese — a shipment that appeared to have been arranged to evade duty charges of $67,000. Under federal regulations, cheese importers are issued quotas that see cheese taxed at about $0.03 per kilogram, but anything over the quota is slapped with a 245.5 per cent tariff.

Canada Border Services Agency officials have said anyone caught smuggling large shipments of cheese into Canada would be in violation of the Customs Act for failing to declare, and pay duties on, the controlled goods.

A fight during a search for missing macaroni and cheese left one Deltona sibling with a stab wound to the stomach, Volusia deputies said.

The two brothers, Edward Zipperer, 47, and Randy Zipperer, 49, got into an argument after the younger brother spilled a beer belonging to Randy Zipperer while looking for missing mac and cheese, investigating deputies said.

The incident occurred at a Danforth Avenue home Tuesday at 10:12 p.m., deputies said. Deputies were called to the home where they found Randy Zipperer standing in the front yard.

He immediately started apologizing to deputies saying everything was an accident and that he did not mean to hurt his brother, an arrest report shows. Randy Zipperer said he became upset with his brother and said, “I poked him a little with the knife but I didn’t mean to,” the report shows.

A witness, William Senn, told deputies Randy Zipperer got angry because he could not find his macaroni and cheese. Edward Zipperer went to help his brother look for the food and during the search knocked over a beer belonging to Randy Zipperer, Senn told deputies.

The brothers then got into an argument during which Randy Zipperer got a knife from the kitchen and started swinging it at his brother. He managed to wound his brother in the stomach, deputies said.

Deputies found a small puncture wound on the stomach of Edward Zipperer and also found blood spots leading from the kitchen to the bedroom. Deputies located the 6-inch knife with blood on the tip, the report said. Randy Zipperer was charged with aggravated battery and obstructing an officer without violence.
