Cheecho Mertsaris is a lawyer for New York’s Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) but he is also confined to a wheelchair, has little to no control over his arms or legs and needs constant care due to cerebral palsy. Which makes it all the more surprising that he is facing court after being accused of molesting a judge while they were alone in the Commissions office. It is alleged he grabbed her upper thigh and buttocks. He claims it was simply accidental, she claims otherwise.

WTF Houston? A Texas Department of Criminal Justice inmate, being transported between jails, has managed to pull out a gun, hijack the van, steal one of the officer’s gray correctional uniforms and black boots and escape with four guns, including a 12 gauge shotgun while in a wheelchair…tada! Yes, Arcade Joseph Comeaux, who was shackled during the transportation had been using a wheelchair for 10 years. Described as black, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds, Comeaux is believed to have simply walked off after overpowering the two officers, leaving the wheelchair in his wake. Hmm, so very Keyser Söze. Comeaux is serving a life sentence for child molesting and a string of aggravated sexual assault charges. He had additional time added to is sentence after he stabbed his wife multiple times with a metal object during a prison visit in 1999 while confined to his wheelchair.
Psst Do you think he used his wheelchair as a crutch?
Come on people, hitting a wheelchair bound kid wearing a medical halo screwed into his skull is pretty poor form (unless you’re the Farrelly Brothers). The incident happened at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for children after the boy’s uncle bought him a soccer ball. The ball had accidentally landed in a bush and the uncle was retrieving it when it was alleged Mikka Shardai and her sister decided to go after it. When the uncle placed it in his nephew’s lap, Ms Shardai tried to grab it. In the ensuing fight she swung at either the ball or the kid and hit him in the halo. Enter police, exit woman to county jail!
