Michael Wenzel’s Next Disposition: August 21, 2018

The case of Michael Wenzel was stifled in the 12th court, in Bradenton where his father works for Manatee County as the planning section manager. It seems to be stalling in the 13th court, as we’re seeing disposition after disposition, charges dropped for Spencer Heintz, and justice delayed. With our watchful eye, the public will judge the court’s decisions.

Hillsborough County Case Number: 17-CF-017869-A

Next disposition for Michael Wenzel: Aug. 21 at 9:00 a.m.

Animal abusers in ‘Shark Case’ going to court today

Tampa (WTFF) – Michael Wenzel and Spencer Heintz are scheduled to be in court this morning for a disposition.

Both are facing trial for two counts of Aggravated Cruelty to Animals, which is a 3rd degree felony. Wenzel was also charged with a 2nd degree misdemeanor for violating FWC regulations F.S. 379.401 (2) (a).

Robert Lee Benac is facing the same Aggravated Cruelty to Animals and FWC violation charges, but he signed a waiver of appearance last month, so he won’t be in court today.

All three men pleaded not guilty back in January. Full Story »

Living in Florida can be stressful.

More often than not, an ejaculation can safely unravel the knotted web of frustration spun into our minds by the scolding heat and insanity that we face on a daily basis.

Justin Calhoun

KEY WEST, Fla. – A male stripper from Tampa was arrested Monday in Key West after he stabbed his partner in both eyes and shoved a piece of wood down his throat, police said.

Justin Calhoun, 24, faces a charge of attempted murder in connection with the violent domestic incident.

According to a Key West police report, Calhoun admitted to attacking Mark Brann so severely that the victim was flown to a Miami hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Calhoun told police that he and Brann had a sexual relationship and that he often stayed at Brann’s home in Key West. Calhoun said he and Brann got into an argument because he believed that Brann was a “cannibal,” Detective Jeff Dean wrote in the police report.

Brann got angry about Calhoun’s accusation and picked up a gun that was on a bed where they were laying, Calhoun told police. Calhoun said the gun fired as he fought with Brann for the gun, but no one was shot, Dean wrote.

Calhoun said he took the gun and planned to shoot Brann, but the gun jammed, the report said. Instead, Calhoun said, he grabbed a pen and stabbed Brann in both eyes, the report said. Full Story »
