Everybody within the sound of this Blog knows what the wacky crew over at Aces Casino Entertainment, well-known as the top Orange county casino party company in SoCal, does best in this crazy world we live in - Putting on fabulous, entertaining, one-of-a-kind casino night parties. (Ed. Note: Seriously, we ARE that good. I mean, who ELSE in our industry has a four-year-old blog that posts articles twice a week? That's Check-Mate.) However, what some people that don't partake in this parakeet paper we call the Aces Casino Blog might NOT know about us is simply this - We LIVE for goofy movies, stories, ideas and pictures to pass on ro our many (4?) blog subscribers. When we're not out making some worthy fundraising chair a bazillion dollars for their very important charitable organization, we're out looking for the next "Pet Rock" of Blog-info to pass along a starving contingency of Aces Blog readers.
OK, maybe we don't need room in our trophy case for that ever-elusive Pulitzer, but hey, It's something to do while the construction and design crew is out in the back, making so much noise that no one can hear anything, while they build the next outstanding piece of casino equipment for our company.
Bottom line: Any time we come across something that has to be shared with the masses, we write another blog article. So, to that end, we're back with another entry into the Aces Casino Blog - This one appropriately entitled, "Stupid Criminals and Disturbing Photographs." Hope you like it....
#1 -- "If you can't even come up with a good fake name, give up your dream of being a crook"
Circumstances: On June 10, 2010, a man named Frankie Portee was riding in the back of a car when it was pulled over by the police. Portee had multiple outstanding probation warrants, and was understandably concerned that the cops would find out about them. So he cleverly decided to identify himself with a fake name. I’ll let Associate Justice Mark V. Green, who wrote the recent Massachusetts Appeals Court opinion affirming Portee’s conviction, take it from here:
Trooper Alan Driscoll noticed that the defendant was not wearing a seat belt and asked the defendant his name and date of birth in order to cite him for a seat belt violation. The defendant gave the false name of “Daniel Atkins” and a birth date of January 28, 1983.
Trooper Driscoll ran the name “Daniel Atkins” though the computer in his cruiser, and learned that there was an active arrest warrant for a Daniel Atkins, who had a birth date indicating an age in approximately the same range as the date provided by the defendant. Atkins's physical description appeared to match the defendant.
