Blue Light Special | Woman has relations with a dog; Lose a room key, call police, get arrested for prostitution

You Lucky Dog? or You Dog, You...

In Spartanburg, a Chesnee woman has been charged with buggery after Cherokee County deputies say she engaged in sex acts with a dog. Because hey, Spartanburg.

After no luck on Tinder, Hannah Marie Haynes, 22, was charged March 24 after she performed sex acts with a Dachsund, said Cherokee County Sheriff Steve Mueller, in a statement. Weiner dogs, amirite?

Mueller said someone called the North Charleston Police Department after Haynes sent them a video of the acts, which is the number one thing you should NOT do after performing sex acts with a dog. North Charleston investigators then reached out to Cherokee County deputies, Mueller said.

Deputies determined the video was filmed in Cherokee County.

Haynes has been released from the Cherokee County Detention Center on $5,000 bond.

Man loses leg shooting rifle at lawn mower packed with explosives

On this week’s episode of ‘Jackass’, gruesome video footage has surfaced showing the moment a Georgia daredevil lost his leg shooting a semiautomatic rifle at a lawn mower packed with several pounds of deadly explosives.

David Pressley, 32, can be seen moving closer and closer to the explosive target as he peppers it with bullets. Moments later, the lawn mower suddenly explodes, unleashing a plume of smoke and shrapnel. Because that’s what happens when you fire a semiautomatic weapon at explosives.

Authorities said one piece of shrapnel struck Pressley, severing his leg from below the knee, according to ABC affiliate WSB-TV.

The graphic video, recorded last week, captures blood splattering across the camera’s lens before Pressley yells, “I blew my leg off!”

Another voice says, “Call an ambulance!”

Pressley’s friends fashioned a tourniquet around his leg and drove him closer to the road, where he was picked up by authorities. He was eventually airlifted to a local hospital and was expected to recover, police said.

Lydiah Mays, one of Pressley’s neighbors, told WSB-TV that she heard the gunshots but wasn’t concerned until she heard the explosion, which shook her nearby home.

“I heard him scream, and so I came downstairs and we were all like looking out the front window,” Mays told the TV station. “You would’ve had to be on drugs or something to think it was a good idea to play with that and try to blow up a lawn mower.”

Pretty much sums it up.

Tannerite — a mixture of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder that explodes when struck by a high-velocity bullet — is normally used for target practice. The product’s website instructs users not to place Tannerite inside, under or near any type of metal objects. For every pound of Tannerite, experts advise standing 100 yards away.

“Do not shoot targets larger than 1 pound unless it is required due to extreme long-range competition,” safety instructions on the Tannerite website read.

Maybe if there had been a list of ways to avoid blowing your leg off on either the explosives or the gun, this all could have been avoided.

WARNING: Do not fire bullets at the explosive. Police say Pressley used three pounds of the material and was only 25 yards away when the explosion occurred.

“It has become extremely popular in the last couple of years, and is sold in many outdoor supply stores such as Cabelas, Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain, and others,” Battalion Chief Craig League with Walton County Fire Rescue told the Loganville News. “One of the drawbacks with Tannerite is that the more of the product that you mix together and shoot the bigger and louder the explosion. This makes it quite dangerous for amateur use.”

“To my knowledge, this is the first injury that we have encountered in Walton County from the use of exploding targets,” he added.

Sheriff Joe Chapman told NBC affiliate WXIA that he gets several complaints a week about Tannerite frightening people’s animals and waking children. He said that people are well within their rights to use the material on their own property but that they should ensure they have adequate space to do so safely.

The station reported that people have begun posting videos online of explosions that use as much as 100 pounds of Tannerite.

“Be careful,” Chapman said. “It’s very dangerous, it’s not a toy. It’s much more than a firecracker.” How true that is.

A Series of Extremely Unfortunate Events

Man, woman charged with prostitution after missing key reported to Surfside Beach police

A man and woman were each arrested in connection with prostitution after the man reported their encounter to Surfside Beach police when he became concerned about his lost house key.

Lillian Michelle Henderickson, 24, of Surfside Beach is charged with prostitution; lewdness, assignation and prostitution generally, according to J. Reuben Long Detention Center records.

Hisrav Nasritdinov, 56, of Rock Hill is also charged with prostitution; lewdness, assignation and prostitution generally, jail records show.

At about 1 p.m. March 23, Nasritdinov went to the Surfside Beach Police Department on Pine Drive off U.S. 17 Business, and told an officer that he met a woman named “Brandy” — later identified as Henderickson — through a Craigslist advertisement and paid her $70 for sexual acts, according to a police report. The police are always interested in chit-chatting about things like this.

Nasritdinov said he exchanged text messages with “Brandy” who told him to meet her at an apartment building on the 700 block of Sixth Avenue South in Surfside Beach, police said.

Nasritdinov said after his encounter with “Brandy,” he realized he didn’t have his house key and became worried. He said he texted “Brandy” about his missing key, but she said she didn’t have it, so Nasritdinov thought police may be able to help him get his key back, authorities said. And boy, were they ever.

Authorities went to the apartment building and asked a man who answered the door if Henderickson was there, and he told them she had gone to the store, according to the report.

Police asked the man if “Brandy” and Henderickson were the same person, and he initially said he didn’t know, but then later remembered that he did know.

The man continuously told police Henderickson wasn’t there, but she eventually came to the door, authorities said.

Initially, Henderickson told police she met Nasritdinov on Facebook and that they were just friends. She told police he gave her money, but not for sexual acts. She later told police he didn’t give her any money, according to the report. Sounds plausible.

She told police her Craigslist ad was just for casual encounters. You know, watching Happy Days, eating ice cream, not touching one another. Police said she later admitted that she does exchange sexual acts for money at the apartment building, because of course.

Police placed her under arrest in connection with prostitution and arrested Nasritdinov while he was at the police station.

Authorities noted in the report that a warrant will be presented to a judge for the arrest of the man they spoke with at the apartment for interfering with a police investigation and running a house of prostitution.
