Stories To End The Decade.

What were/are they thinking??
Man arrested naked after dog killed

SAN CLEMENTE – What started out as a call about a loud radio early this morning ended with the arrest of a nude 26-year-old man who officials suspect killed a family dog with his bare hands, then poured hot coffee on his head while running naked in a tennis club, authorities said.

The dog’s owner said that if her 5-year-old mini schnauzer hadn’t run out in between her and the man, she would have been the one beaten to death.

 And wipe that damned smile off your face!!!!!!

Wait!!  Is that Ray Barrone????

"Rather than grab me, he focused on Kokanee and took his aggression out on her," said Julie Donnelly, a nurse. "When Kokanee ran out in front, it gave me valuable seconds, valuable time to yell for people to help."

Bayron Reyes Lopez has been arrested in the attack.

Investigators suspect that Lopez was under the influence of drugs when the pandemonium began shortly after 4:30 a.m., when deputies tried to contact him at his apartment.

Deputies were called to an apartment building in the 1100 block of Calle del Cerro because of a loud radio, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. When deputies arrived, however, no one was there.

"We get there, go in the room, the guy is gone," he said.

Authorities believe Lopez jumped from a third-story window when deputies arrived.

Deputies looked around for him and couldn’t find him, Amormino said.

He appeared to have turned up at 6:09 a.m., Amormino said, when dispatchers received a call from Donnelly screaming about the violent attack on her dog.

Donnelly, who walks every morning with a friend, was going to meet her up the hill on Calle del Cerro. But then a screaming man, who was clothed, ran down the hill, grabbed her dog and started to choke it. The man repeatedly hit the dog and slammed it onto the sidewalk, Amormino said.

Neighbors gathered around Donnelly as the man beat the dog. No one approached him, but he taunted people to come fight him, she said.

"I wish I could do something for Kokanee, but there was nothing I could do," said Donnelly, who was going to bring her 13-month-old son, John, on the walk that morning, but decided not to.

The man held the dog for a few feet as he ran away and then dropped it on the side of the road. Kokanee, who the Donnellys have had since she was 8 weeks old, crawled for a few feet as Donnelly ran toward her and then the dog collapsed onto her side.

Minutes later, authorities received another call. This time, a caller reported that a man was running naked in the Rancho San Clemente Tennis Club, 111 Vista Montana. Officials say that the man was seen pouring hot coffee on his head.

Police arrested Lopez, a maintenance man at the club for three years, at the club. He was naked when he was arrested. They took him to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo and then transported him to the Men’s Central Jail in Santa Ana. He is being charged with cruelty to animals and may be charged with being under the influence of drugs and narcotics if that is confirmed, Amormino said.

Kokanee died in Donnelly’s arms while being transported to a veterinary hospital in Mission Viejo. Donnelly said she tried to give her CPR, but it didn’t work.

A bucket of sunflowers with a photo of Kokanee wearing a red jingle-bell collar and licking her nose marks the median near the spot where she was beaten. A sign says "We love you Kokanee. Rest in Peace."

"She was like a family member," Donnelly said. "She sacrificed her life for me this morning."

She was a beautiful and brave dog.

Comment:  He should go to prison as if he had killed a human. 


Travis Pastrana
I’d call him an Evel Kneivel Jr!  As in he’s crazy!!!
Perennial X Games star Travis Pastrana will try to break the world record for longest rally car jump tonight, taking off from a ramp on the Pine Street Pier in Long Beach and landing, he hopes, on a floating barge near the Queen Mary. . . .

For the thrill-seeking Pastrana, who will cover about 270 feet through the air if all goes well, every year’s a leap year.

Go here for a video of the run-up!
It will  be shown live on ESPN.  Quote:  "Why did I decide to do this??  I’m scared to death!!!  LOL!!!
Good luck Travis!!  You’re nuts!!!
So glad this year is over!  Hoping for a better 2010.
Happy New Year Y’all and have a GREAT 2010!!!!!  I’m off to look at the blue moon!
The darned guy made it!!  270  yards and a perfect landing!!  He’s a kid (26 years old) and his mom looks younger!  Check out YouTube!!!

    That top story sure is sad…what a heroic little dog…that is the kind of thing that just plain makes me sick. Stunt drives and such…I don’t know man that’s not what rings my bell but if it works for them…well good luck with that…as long as they don’t end up on the next Jackass or Smoking Gun presents Dumbest…whatever. Have a great brand new year Bob, I’m more than happy to see ‘010 roll along…you might just have to treat yourself to some new Speedos…hey, it’s a tradition right? We need to start thing out right!

    Wow that is a very sad story about the dog. I can’t even imagine witnessing someone doing that to my pet. See what drugs do to people? But still there are people that think drugs only harm the person who takes them. Not true.Anyway, I know I’m been totally MIA lately, but I posted a new entry on my blog and I’m going to try to do that more regularly in 2010. Wishing you and your family a very happy 2010 and hope to "see" you more this year! xo
