I’m not sure how we missed this one. The guy pictured above is JD Sackett. He was busted last week for running an illegal adult motion picture arcade. From KFOR:
Oklahoma City man is behind bars after running an illegal adult arcade. Neighbors say men would come and go from the home at 4011 NW 23rd Street, some staying all day…
OKC Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says, “When our undercover officer went in there, they were actually able to purchase, for $10, an unlimited amount of time watching pornographic movies.”
Officers arrested the owner, 75-year-old JD Sackett.
Sgt. Wardlow says, “The actual charge in this case, which is running an illegal adult motion picture arcade, is not something that we typically see a lot of reports of. It’s something that’s fairly unusual.”…
The lack of signs made the neighbors suspicious.
(Tana) LeMisio says, “My husband asked him what kind of business it was and he told him it was an exercise business.”
But when her husband asked if he could work out there, he was told it was members only…
In case you’ve ever wondered what an illegal adult motion picture arcade looks like, here’s a photo of the business from Google Street:
I’m not sure why, but I’ve always kind of liked Andrew Speno. He seems like a good dude, has been around the market for a while, and even pissed of Steve Largent during the (has it really been 10 years?) 2002 gubernatorial campaign.
Because of all that, I was sad to see that Andrew Speno was forced to apologize to the dozens of KOKH Channel 25 FOX News at 9:00 viewers for comments he made on Thursday night’s broadcast. Here’s the apology. You can watch the video of it at the Fox 25 website. It’s kind of awkward:
I apologize to anyone offended by the remarks I made about Whitney Houston during the FOX 25 Primetime News at Nine on March, 8, 2012. My intent was not to offend but I now see the context in which my comment was taken by many of our viewers. During that segment, we sometimes make fun of celebrities but I can see how my comment about Whitney Houston, so soon after her death, was in poor taste. I hope each of you will continue to watch our newscast. I respect your opinions and each viewer’s value as part of our community.
If you ever need to contact me with questions or feedback, feel free to email me directly at email@example.com.
You’re probably wondering what Speno said about Whitney Houston to evoke such outrage from people who forgot to change the channel after watching American Idol and the new hit FOX series Touch. This is what we heard happened from a few Ogle Moles who watched it live.
Hello everyone! Can you believe it’s Monday again already? Ugh. The only thing worse than Monday mornings are the autoplay videos on NewsOK.com, navigating the website of any local television station and being at Meg Alexander’s house on nights they eat asparagus.
This is Monday Morning Tweets, where we comb through all the week’s tweets and bring you some of the best or worst or most interesting or the first one I saw because I had to finish writing the post in the next five minutes. We’ll get to this week’s tweets after the jump!
My name is Joel Decker. I’m a stand-up comedian, trivia host and former emcee for the Oklahoma City Thunder until we parted ways. In a testament to how low my career has fallen, Patrick has hired me to be your emcee and guide for Ogle Madness V. I’ll be posting the daily match-ups, monitoring the polls and raking Clark Matthews’ leaves. You think he would have gotten to that already, but he hasn’t.
Here are the match-ups for this morning. They are from the upper bracket of the Northeast Region. We’ll post the match-ups from the lower half of the bracket at noon:
(1) Kevin Durant vs. (16) Mike Morgan’s Bedazzled Weather Tie
(8) Mayor Mick Cornett vs. (9) Cardboard Jim Traber
(4) Jaime Cerreta vs. (13) Sally Kern
(5) Jessica Schambach vs. (12) Landry Jones
Anyway, read about the contestants and vote for who you would like to see advance after the jump. Polling is open for 24-hours. And to view the entire Ogle Madness V bracket, click here.
You may have noticed that we stopped posting our Saturday Morning 1990′s Music Videos series this year. Actually, when you consider the amount of views those posts received, you probably haven’t noticed.
Anyway, I’m posting a special video this morning to remind everyone to go to Guinness.com and pledge to attend the world’s largest St. Patrick’s Day Celebration. It takes about 30-seconds and this is what you have to do:
1. Go the Guinness.com, enter your birthday, and click the “Count Me In” Button.
2. Enter your Name, Zip Code and (this is important) the word “Ogle” for your promotional code.
3. Click the “Join Now” button and then move along with the rest of your day.
I’m asking you to do this for several reasons. One of them is the I love Guinness. It really is one of my favorite beers. It’s dark, heavy, semi-sweet and, yeah, that kind of sounds dirty. But seriously, Guinness is awesome. Drink it. It’s even better when served by the blonde bartender with big boobs at McNellies.
Another reason we’re doing this is that we’re in a national contest with 49 other obscure local social blogs. The top three blogs/bloggers — there’s one from each state — win a trip to Ireland in September for the annual Guinness birthday party. Right now we’re about 100 pledges off the lead, so be a good Ogle Mole and help us out. Cardboard Jim’s never been to Ireland, and this may be his only chance to see a leprechaun. Do it for him.
p.s. – Thank you Guinness for selecting us as the blog for Oklahoma. The Ogle Mole network will not let you down.
Thanks! Your message has been sent!
