There's a special place in hell awaiting Thomas Hauck, 57, of Philadelphia. He's charged with the murder of his 82-year-old father, Leonard, whom he starved to death. Thomas also severely neglected his mother. She was found malnourished but is recovering. Hauck is facing recklessly endangering the welfare of another person charges for the treatment of his mother. We could be wrong, but Thomas looks like he's not mentally sane, which could explain his actions.
Speaking of cray cray, Alexis Felton is one crazy mother (what your mouth!). The 22-year-old tried to choke her 11-month-old daughter six times -- while the girl was in the hospital. How did she end up in the hospital six times? You guessed it. Gold star for you.
Weeks after a Texas woman underwent gastric bypass surgery, she said her doctor, Dr. Jacques Roy, showed up at her home and wrote her prescriptions for Xanax and other prescriptions -- in exchange for sex. Which is the same thing he was disciplined for in 1999 after one one his patients/jumpoffs died from in a car crash while high on pills.
They be fightin'! Wanda Mann, the president of a school board, put the beatdown on a teacher in the hallway as students looked on in amazement.
↪ In Atlanta, a hairstylist became enraged when Neffe (Neffeteria Pugh), the sister of R&B singer Keyshia Cole, left his salon unsatisfied and went to celebrity hairstylist and Real Housewives of Atlanta regular, Derek J's salon, to have her weave redone. "Her (hair was) messed up to the point we didn't know what to do. So I was just like, reach out to the stylist and say 'Hey, what did you use, what did you do?' and it turned from a professional conversation to more of an argument but we thought it was done," Derek said. The rival hairstylist, Corwin Pledger (pictured, here), was offended and showed up at Derek J's salon a few hours later with a gun, threatened to kill people then opened fire. Cops are now pursuing charges.
Meanwhile, on CNN, reporter Dan Simon was reporting live outside an Apple Store in San Francisco when a man walked up hoping he'd get a chance to talk about the new iPad. Dan pushed the man out of the shot, and he returned with a one-finger salute. Classic.
There's a new tax scam targeting the elderly. Advanced Tax Services in Atlanta are telling the elderly they're eligible to claim a "Obama Stimulus Plan Credit." Here's the shocker: There's no such credit. If we've said it once, we've said it at least 100 times: You don't have to pay anyone to prepare your taxes, just walk into an IRS office and they'll file it for you. For Free. But if you must use a tax preparer, go to a company like H&R Block, not these shady companies popping up in the hood promising you a huge refund. Don't be greedy, because the IRS will demand you repay every red cent you false received.
