1. Homeless man accused of masturbating on roof

A homeless man was arrested Thursday, accused of masturbating on the roof of the Pink Panther Nightclub and Showbar in Dunedin, according to a police report.

Treloar Bryan Treloar, 42, was arrested by a Pinellas County sheriff’s deputy on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, loitering and prowling about 11:30 a.m. Four employees of an adjacent business witnessed the act, the report said.

Treloar has been arrested several times in Pinellas County over the past three years, including arrests in May on charges of assault on a law enforcement officer and trespassing. He was in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $750 bail

When I read this I spit up my OJ. All I could think was " Man this guys cocky." HA!

2.Cross-dresser on trial for hospital incident

When University Hospital nurses walked into the patient’s intensive care room Feb. 17, they saw the wounded man was visibly shaken – and wearing lip gloss.

He became even more shaken when he learned the female phlebotomist who had just kissed and groped his exposed penis was really a man.

That phlebotomist, Chad Thrasher, also known as Chadea Thrasher, is on trial, charged with sexually touching the patient.

Thrasher, 24, lives as a female and appeared in court wearing women’s clothes, jewelry and hairstyle.

But it was Thrasher’s alleged conduct in the alleged victim’s hospital room – as he was recovering from the four surgeries he needed after being shot during a crime – that could send Thrasher to prison for up to 18 months.

Thrasher had drawn the man’s blood before but this incident was different. The man wasn’t scheduled to have his blood drawn. Thrasher had developed an attraction to the man and began talking to and acting toward the patient in an inappropriate way, Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor David Hickenlooper told jurors Thursday.

Thrasher started talking about to the man about body parts, about exotic dancing in clubs and that Thrasher had a stalker, Hickenlooper said.

Then, Thrasher said the man’s lips looked chapped, so, Hickenlooper said, Thrasher forcibly put lip gloss on the weak patient before forcibly kissing him, grabbed the man’s penis and asked how long it had been since he “had been with a woman.”

“This is not the usual interaction between a health care provider and a patient,” Hickenlooper said.

Nurses, summoned by the panicked patient who faked a medical emergency to get Thrasher to leave, called police.

Thrasher initially denied the incident but later told police any physical interaction with the man was consensual.

Thrasher’s attorney, Ed Keller, suggested in his opening that the allegations aren’t what they appear to be but he didn’t expound on that. He also referred to his client as both “he” and “she.”

The trial, before Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman, is expected to go into next week.

Oh Man! Oh Man! OH FUCKING MAN! This guy went from every guys fantasy and every potential Porno sub plot right into CHRISSYVILLE, Population weird and wacky.
3. Tourette's most common in white kids, boys

ATLANTA (AP) — Tourette syndrome occurs in 3 out of every 1,000 school-aged children, and is more than twice as common in white kids as in blacks or Hispanics, according to the largest U.S. study to estimate how many have the disorder.

Tourette's — known for its physical tics and, in some cases, shouted obscenities — has long been considered a rare condition. The new number means it's more common than some past estimates, but confirms that it's far less common than other neurological conditions like autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
The racial gaps are probably the most surprising finding, said study's authors said.

"Prior to this, we really had very little information about minorities," said Lawrence Scahill, a Yale University researcher. The study was released Thursday.

It's not clear why whites have a higher rate or if future studies will find the same disparity, experts said. Some suspect it has less to do with genetics than with a difference in access to medical care or in attitudes about whether repetitive blinking or other tics require medical care.

The study, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, estimates there are about 150,000 U.S. children with Tourette's, below the 200,000 threshold for rare diseases.

The researchers also found that:
• Most cases were mild, but one in four were — in the parent's opinion — moderate or severe.
• Boys had a rate three times higher than girls.
• About 80% had been diagnosed with another mental illness or developmental disability.

Tourette's is characterized by involuntary, sudden and repetitive movements. They may be as mild as blinking, nose twitching or grimacing, or severe as head jerking or other motions that cause chronic pain or injury. Some also have vocal tics that range from grunting and throat-clearing to barking and swearing.

The condition tends to peak in early adolescence and fades afterward. Scientists don't know the cause, but believe genetics are at least part of the answer.

Earlier studies offered a range of estimates of Tourette's from less than 1 per 1,000 to close to 30.

The CDC study was the first to employ a national survey. Parents or guardians in more than 91,000 U.S. households were interviewed by phone, and asked if a doctor had ever told them that their child had Tourette syndrome. They also were asked about diagnoses of depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other behavioral problems or developmental disabilities.

The researchers found that the Tourette's rate in white children was about 4 per 1,000, while the rate for both blacks and Hispanics was about 1.5.

The researchers looked at parental education and household income, and found those factors did not explain the racial difference.

The report is being published this week in a CDC publication, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

No fucking shit you study taking cock suckers! You fucking mean to tell me that fucking white piss ant little white dick heads are found to be more fucking predominant to having Tourette's? NO SHIT!!
