@11:14 AM, come on, take off your tin foil hat and get real.

It was the Russians that set him up.

At least the RCSO and PD didn't just kill him from not following their orders.
Mississippi has really progressed since the 20th century.

So arrested for the DUI. Then arrested a second time for not appearing in court. Unreal.

He just didn’t understand that the law is enforced on the East side of the Pearl River.
Our judges don’t have a revolving door policy like those across on the West side do.
Do the crime, do the time.

Husband: Do you know who my wife is, officer?

Officer: Yes, she is the lame brain who kept us from getting paid.

Did I miss the results of the police investigation of the alleged rope / hangman's noose found on a storeroom closet door somewhere that the mayor thought was racist? Seems like a custodian had placed the rope there innocently while cleaning out a closet? Yet the mayor screamed racism at the top of her lungs.

Judge: Do you have any excuse for being intoxicated?

Defendant: Yes, I am married to Ryshonda Beechem.

Judge: Case dismissed.

A quick land glide search of the address he says he stay at belongs to George & Naomi Brewer.

Did he refuse roadside sobriety blow-whistle or a legitimate one somewhere other than Pelahatchie PD? It makes a difference. Case dismissed.

PS: He never got notice to appear since that ain't where he stay.

11:14 and 12:02, the board reached out to Huma Abedin, who coordinated with Hillary, who coordinated with Sidney Blumenthal and Hunter Biden to have a Ukrainian hired as a local police officer; he was the one who made the arrest!

It’s been way too quiet in Pelahatchie.
Couldn’t stay out of Kingfish’s crosshairs for too long.
Excellent way to jump back in the news.
Maybe she will try to break him out.

4:37, the police usually provide the initial appearance date with the citation. Prosecutors don’t need BAC results to convict for a DUI. It’s been a while since I looked this up, but I think the roadside test is to establish probable cause for the Intoxilyzer, which is the test result that is proffered as evidence at trial. I think the punishment for refusal has more to do with suspending driving privileges, which is handled by DPS, rather than the court.

Anonymous said...

9:11 - You're correct; however, my question was whether he was cited for refusing the roadside-blow or the actual intoxilyzer at a stationery location such as a police station. It would indeed be interesting to learn that Pelahatchie has a trained DUI officer on the town payroll.

He wouldn't be drinking if Hilary was on the throne...Trumps fault!

@2:51 Rankin County landroll is very unreliable. They only update public record once a year. Depending on when you purchase property, it may be a year before it reflects legal owner.

8:03 she has been mayor for over 1 year. The reason her name isn’t on the property is because she rented it from her relative AFTER the election. She hasn’t “lived” in pelahatchie for years.

Hmmmmmm........... I saw a Pelahatchie Police vehicle speeding north on I55 in Jackson either yesterday. Thought it rather odd. That sleepy little town of yester years must have disappeared.

@ 9:26 You need to have your eyes checked or wake up from dreaming!

Mr Beechem, My brother, get your house in order! Get on your knees with your spouse and ask the lord to guide you. What you all are doing ain’t in nobody’s book!
I didn’t know what else to say!!!

If you won’t post this comment kingfish? It’s only the truth. Just for those questioning the “road side” test. He was witnessed driving in a drunk manner by a citizen of Pelahatchie that called the police. He was found at their “rental” house in Pelahatchie stuck in the ditch where they “stays”. He was found clearly drunk by three police officers, including the Chief of police smelling like alcohol and drunk! He refused the breathalyzer and was arrested for DUI. There was no funny business whatsoever by the police. If you try blaming it on the white folks just know that the police chief is also a black man. He was driving drunk and luckily didn’t kill someone before he wound up in the ditch. As for a notice to be at court. If it were you, any of you, would you need to have a notice to be in court?? I wouldn’t. He’s guilty as charged. If he had wrecked killing your child, mom, dad would you still take up for him? Don’t drink and drive!

Hiram Walker said...

1:04 - Thank you for you post; however, you are flat out wrong when you suggest someone can be charged with DUI for refusing a roadside sobriety test, in Pelahatchie or anywhere else in this state. Calm down and have a beer with your Bible study.

Anonymous said...

@2:35. I never said that’s why he was arrested. He was swerving drunk and found stuck in the ditch at his house. He was arrested because he was DRUNK! Looked drunk, smelled drunk and was drunk. That’s why he was arrested. Lol. Maybe you should have told me to have a beer with him instead. Apparently the three police Officers decided he was drunk.

3:28 - You clearly lack knowledge of what's required to prevail in arresting and charging an individual with DUI. A case built on "looking drunk, smelling drunk, driving like you're drunk and acting drunk" will get your ass laughed out of a court of law. The defendant won't even need Vic Carmody for that one.

Anonymous said...

10:05. What world do you live in? It sure isn’t this one. If that’s the case he should’ve showed up for court and got dismissed.

Anonymous said...

@10:05. You’re right about one thing though. I don’t have first hand knowledge of Dui’s because I’m not stupid enough to drink and drive.

Please, nobody take this terrible, incompetent legal advice. "[L]ooking drunk, smelling drunk, driving like you're drunk and acting drunk" will get you convicted of DUI. It's commonly referred to "common law" DUI.

Thank you @ 10:33

10:33 - Not if I have two people testify that a friend doused me with whiskey, that I was not drinking alcohol at the gathering, that I accidentally dropped a wheel off the driveway and my yard was soggy and that I've always been unstable on my feet. Seek competent advice. See you in court.

No charge.

So if he gave a false address to the PD, and didn't show for court because he doesn't actually get mail at the address he gave, isn't that also a crime to give false information to an officer?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
