ONLY ON 3: Boseman, girlfriend involved in custody battle

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Two children have been removed temporarily from former Sen. Julia Boseman’s home.

Boseman’s live-in girlfriend lost custody because of allegations of drug use and violence.

According to court documents, the 12-year old and seven-year old were living with their mother, Lala Ohnmacht in a New Hanover County home. The children’s father, Charles Ohnmacht, says his ex lives there with Boseman.

Charles Ohnmacht filed for emergency custody, claiming his ex-wife and Boseman use illegal drugs, like cocaine, abuse alcohol in front of the children and left the 12-year-old alone, who was found walking down Carolina Beach Road.

In July, we reported Boseman was accused of hitting the owner of a Wilmington restaurant. That allegedly happened in front of the seven-year old. That violence was also cited in the paperwork filing for emergency custody.

Monday, a judge granted the father temporary custody of the children and ordered Lala Ohnmacht to submit to a drug test within 24 hours.

We called Boseman to ask her about these allegations. She denied doing drugs and eventually hung up.

Boseman currently shares custody of a son with her ex-partner, Melissa Jarrell. She also shares custody of a two-year-old with ex-wife Chrystal Medlin. According to Medlin’s attorney Duke Lineberry, “The results of the motion may have an impact on this case… Right now, can’t say whether it will or not.”

FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: BSL fires police chief for ordering officer to drive son to work

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

BOILING SPRING LAKES, NC (WWAY) — After a two-week investigation into alleged abuse of power, Boiling Spring Lakes told its police chief to turn in his badge today.

As WWAY reported FIRST ON 3, Ballree was suspended with pay last month as City Manager Jeff Repp began investigating an allegation Ballree abused his power as chief. Repp said at the time the allegation was separate from an SBI investigation into Ballree launched earlier this year. The SBI says its investigation is in its final stage.

This morning City Manager Jeff Repp met with Emmett Ballree and decided it was best to move in another direction.

“Based on that investigation and the information that I was able to acquire in these interviews with the officers, it was decided to separate our ties with the chief and move in a different direction,” Repp said.

Officially the city fired Ballree for abusing his position of power by ordering an on-duty police officer to pick up his son and drive him to work in Southport. It’s an act that could be considered a misappropriation of city resources.

“From the Chief of Police it was just not the best of judgement to be used, and if this would have been another officer or if it had been an isolated incident, maybe I would have taken another course of action, but this is the Chief of Police,” Repp said.

Ballree would not talk on camera, but by phone he said he accepts the reality of his firing. He was fired over a disagreement over the direction of the police department.

“We have a very good crop of officers in the police department, and I think they sincerely want to do a good job for the citizens of BSL,” Repp said, “and I think they will under a good chief be able to exhibit that professionalism that they want from the department.”

Ballree also told us he does not plan to appeal his firing and is looking into careers outside of law enforcement.

Repp said Lt. Richard Spenser will continue as acting chief during the search process for the new police chief.

**FOUND AT WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH** – Silver ring with “Brittney Marie” etched on band

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH (THE FOLLOWING LOST-AND-FOUND AD WAS POSTED THIS WEEK ON CRAIGSLIST.COM) — I spent yesterday morning frolicking in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean at Wrightsville Beach. While toweling off my Phelps-like physique, I discovered a ring lying in the sand near the Crystal Pier.

This ring is obviosuly special. It’s not special in a way that requires me to return it to Mordor to defeat Sauron and all of that crap, but it’s still special in its own unique way.

The ring is silver with the words “Brittney Marie” etched into the band. There is a large purple gemstone set in the middle of the band. I’m not a gemologist and I don’t play one on TV, so I have no friggin’ clue what kind of stone it is.

My initial reaction was to take the ring to Flash Cash Jewelry & Pawn on Dawson Street and then head STRAIGHT to Pure Gold strip club to take in the Wilmington Ballet. I WOULD MAKE IT RAIN AT PURE GOLD. And just as I was making it rain, the Karma Gods would strike down on me with great vengeance and furious anger.

The strip club DJ would tee up a Mötley Crüe song–because strip club DJs ALWAYS play Mötley Crüe songs–and introduce the next dancer.

DJ: “Gentlemen, please welcome to the stage…Brittney Marie!”

ME: “OH S**T.”

And while it’s unlikely Brittney Marie is her real name, it would still freak me out. Even worse, it could be her stage name and some creepy customer who excels in hand-to-gland combat gave her that ring. Because NOTHING is creepier than some dude … giving a stripper a ring with her stripper name engraved on it. That’s some BTK s**t right there.

This is how the Karma Gods work. And I don’t want any part of it.

That’s why I posted this on Craigslist. If this is your ring, send me an email (5pkcw-3202336254@comm.craigslist.org) and I will mail it to you. I’ll even pay for the postage. If this is NOT your ring and you send me an email claiming it IS your ring, you will be (messing) with an indomitable force that will hunt you down and stab you in the heart.
