Man Bribes Former Landlord Over "Cheating" Husband

Some tenants will give their landlords nothing but trouble.

A landlady in the Excelsior District can vouch for that after dealing with a former tenant who called her up asking to borrow $500.

The woman said she didn't have the money, but he kept badgering her for the cash, and having his friends call her and show up at her house, according to police.

Things got even more uncomfortable when the man learned his former landlord's husband had booked a trip abroad.

In his mind, that meant she certainly had money to give.

The man got desperate for cash; he called up his former landlord and told her that he knew exactly why her husband had a trip planned overseas -- because he was cheating on her.

And he had the proof, he said.

The man then followed up with a phone call, telling the victim that if she wanted to know any more about her cheating husband, she would have to pay -- coincidentally, $500.

The woman wasn't buying that story -- literally. Instead, she called police to report her tenant from hell.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
