Erin Ailworth and Ken Ma Sentinel Staff Writers
DAYTONA BEACH -- Dennis Crouch had already slashed himself. And when he refused to drop his knife, Daytona Beach police Officer Betsy Cassidy decided she had no choice."Taser! Taser!" Cassidy shouted as she sent a two-pronged wire, packing 50,000 volts, at Crouch's chest. What happened next stunned everyone.A Taser probe pierced the pocket of his khaki shirt -- and ignited the butane lighter inside. Cassidy's pocket exploded in flames.

This is the best quote from the police report: "The subject... immediately dropped the knife." Yeah, I think getting tased and catching fire would definitely cause anybody to drop anything he or she is holding!

There's no truth to the rumor Fred the Kitty helped bust an illegal catnip smuggling ring!

Kitten Cop Helps Bust Vet Scam

MIAMI He came from the streets of Brooklyn, a cool customer on four legs, the perfect bait for a sting on a fake veterinarian. Meet Fred, undercover kitten. Authorities on Wednesday introduced the 8-month-old former stray cat that posed as a would-be patient while police investigated a college student accused of treating pets without a license. At a news conference, Fred sported a tiny badge on his collar as he posed for photos with owner Carol Moran, a prosecutor. "He's pretty easygoing, a real Brooklyn guy," Moran said.

Strippers and cops and tats, oh my!

25 Florida Strippers Nabbed
Tampa-area clubs again raided in undercover sting operation

FEBRUARY 3--Florida investigators yesterday returned to the scene of the grind, arresting more than two dozen strippers in an undercover investigation. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, the dancers were allegedly involved in a variety of criminal activities, including cocaine peddling, prostitution, lewdness, exposure of sexual organs, and the improper solicitation of alcohol sales. The strippers, who were nabbed late last night and early this morning, worked at six Tampa-area clubs: Lollipops; Calendar Girls; Vegas Showgirls; Brass Flamingo; Bare Assets; Foxy Lady; and Club Extasy. Last July, dancers at five of those clubs were arrested as part of a lunchtime sting operation. Below you will find mug shots of 25 strippers arrested as part of the latest Pasco County probe, which involved undercover officers infiltrating the joints and, in some instances, receiving lap dances that, um, rubbed the cops the wrong way. According to criminal complaints, of the 25 women arrested, 23 (or 92 percent) were inked, including one woman who had a "Daddy's Girl" tattoo on the back of one shoulder.

I love the creative names of the strip clubs. My favorite is Bare Assets. Memo to the Pasco cops: if you are going to throw somebody in the slam, at least have the decency to spell the charges properly. It's PROSTITUTION not PROSTITION!
