Title: Strange Stories from the SEC Footprint
Post by: jbcarol on March 24, 2013, 06:12:18 pm
Jonesboro police say a man thought a staged attack would improve his chances with a woman he wanted to date.

Instead, he said things "got out of hand very fast."

On Saturday night several officers, including a K9 unit, spent two hours combing the woods around the Crowley's Ridge Nature Center on Lawson Road.

Earlier 26-year-old Jeffery Tyler Siegel and a woman claimed they had been attacked while walking back from the lookout pavilion.

The couple told police a man wearing all black and wielding a large knife came out of the woods and told Siegel, "You can go; but, your girlfriend stays."

The woman reportedly ran away and called police.  But Siegel stayed and fought the attacker.  Or so he told police... (http://www.kait8.com/story/21723236/jpd-attack-victim-was-trying-to-impress-date)

When Brianne Coots was attacked while walking with her friend Tyler Siegel at Craighead Forest Park Saturday evening, she said the whole situation felt very real.

Region 8 News obtained the 911 call from that day.

Dispatcher: 911, where is your emergency?
Coots: Hi. I'm at the Nature Center.

An out-of-breath Coots tried explaining to the dispatcher what was going on.

Coots: Somebody attacked me and my friend. I'm having to run.
Dispatcher: Somebody attacked you?
Coots: Yes. Please hurry.

Coots showed Region 8 News where the "attacker", wielding a large knife, came out of the woods. She said Siegel saw the man first and advised her to stay back.

"So I was about right here when the guy came out," Coots explained. "As soon as he came out, I just started running."

And she kept running.

"I just went straight down the edge of this," Coots motioned toward a cliff edge. "All the way across the field to the highway over there."

In the process of running away, Coots lost a shoe, shed her jacket to run faster and fell a few times, injuring her hip and leg.

Siegel came out of the incident with a cut on his wrist and chest, supposedly from the attacker.

Coots told Region 8 News when Siegel, someone she'd known for years, insisted they meet in person to talk, she didn't think much of it.

"When we got out here, he wasn't really even talking that much," Coots said. "None of this really clicked to me until afterwards."

Coots told Region 8 News the situation could have actually been a lot worse.

She explained that she does have a 9mm handgun, she's a pretty good shot and she's been considering getting her concealed carry license for some time now.

Alabama football team's doctors helped a LSU Police motorcycle officer who was hit by a car after Saturday's game at Tiger Stadium. (http://www.nola.com/news/baton-rouge/index.ssf/2014/11/alabama_team_doctors_help_lsu.html)

Quote
The doctors were apparently in the motorcade being escorted by the officer at the time.

LSU Police spokesman Capt. Corey Lalonde confirmed that an officer was involved in a crash and was hospitalized with "fairly severe injuries."

"(The team doctors) were of great help to the officer that was injured, and myself and the LSU Police Department greatly appreciate their efforts," he said.

The accident occurred on Nicholson Drive, when a woman driving northbound tried to turn left into a parking lot, Baton Rouge Police spokesman Cpl. Don Coppola said. The lanes were set up for contraflow, and she tried to turn left across the median while at the same time the motorcade and officer were coming up behind her, going the same direction but in what are normally used as the oncoming traffic lanes. She collided with the officer. The escorting officers had their lights and sirens on, and the driver was cited for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

"We were an hour out of a huge win in front of 100,000 people and you immediately forget about that when you're trying to save someone's life," Dr. Norman Waldrop told the website. "That's a whole lot more important than a football game."

Arkansas police have arrested a teenager who they say led officers on a car chase after he drove to a state road test facility without a license. (http://abcnews.go.com/Weird/wireStory/police-teen-arrested-driving-road-test-26893758)

Quote
The 19-year-old was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of felony fleeing.

The teen showed up to take the test at the Arkansas State Police facility in Jonesboro. Police say he fled the office and drove away after a driver's license examiner told officers the teen drove himself there without a license. They say he struck a patrol car on his way out, causing about $6,500 in damages.

The chase ended when the suspect crashed into a home. The vehicle broke through the wall of the house, which caused about $20,000 in damages. No injuries were reported.

Quote
Hazard Police Charged Whitesburg Police Chief Tyrone Fields with a DUI after responding to a 911 call around 1:00a.m. Sunday. They say he was passed out and unresponsive in the front seat of his car at the Hazard Taco Bell drive-thru.

Because of Fields' condition officers took him to the hospital, instead of jail.

""As Soon as it becomes aware to the officer that there's a medical need, ya know, that has to take precedent over any kind of arrest, always. The preservation of life is our number one concern," says Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen.

Whitesburg Mayor James Wiley Craft says he will wait to see what the court's decision is before handing down punishment on the matter.

Clean joke:
An ole miss boy and girl were on a date, driving through a cold rainy night in north mississippi.  There was a sudden bump, and the boy pulled the car to the shoulder.

"Oh, goodness!  I think I hit a dog" he said, as he left the car to walk back to see.

Soon, he returned with the creature he hit, not a dog but a skunk.  He opened the car door and handed to his girlfriend.

"Honey, the poor little guy is still alive.  We should take him to the vets.  Look at him, he is hurt and cold and shivering.  Put him between your legs and to keep him warm while I drive" the boy said.

"But, baby, what about the smell" the girl asked.

The boy replied, "Well, hold his nose!"

Samantha Henson, the woman pictured above, thought this would be the ideal time to shoplift — when in reality, it was arguably the worst time to shoplift. Henson was attending the event with her son, who was likely shopping for his mother, when she was busted for stealing jewelry.

Security personnel at the Wal-Mart noticed Henson concealing the items under her clothing so they alerted police, the same police that were all over the store doing good deeds during the holiday season.

Funeral home president arrested for DUI while transporting corpse (http://www.thenewsjournal.net/details/8691/Funeral-home-president-arrested-for-DUI-while-transporting-corpse)

Quote
A Corbin woman was arrested early Tuesday morning on I-75 for allegedly driving intoxicated while transporting a corpse to a local funeral home.
Leslie Gambrel, 36, was taken into custody at 2:23 a.m. Tuesday morning after Corbin Police Officer Mike Bisschop pulled her over for a traffic stop in the northbound lane of I-75 between Exits 25 and 29.
“I observed the above violator traveling north on I-75 for several miles between 30-35 MPH,” the narrative on Gambrel’s arrest citation reads.
“The violator was also swerving from the outside fog line across the center line, into the emergency lane and back.”
Biscchop said Gambrel failed several field sobriety tests. She was taken to Baptist Health Corbin, but refused any chemical tests to determine if she was under the influence of drugs while driving.

Biscchop said Gambrel admitted to taking Klonopin, a prescription anti-anxiety drug, and Percocet, a narcotic pain reliever, prior to driving.

At the time of her arrest, authorities say Gambrel was transporting a corpse to Corbin Funeral Home in a blue 1991 Cadillac Deville funeral coach style vehicle used by the funeral home...

GRAYSON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says Cheyenne Phillips and her boyfriend Dalton Hayes were spotted in South Carolina.

Police say Phillips, 13, and Hayes, 18, were spotted on Monday at a Walmart in Manning, South Carolina. (http://www.wkyt.com/home/headlines/Missing-Grayson-County-teens-spotted-in-South-Carolina-288655211.html)

Phillips has been missing since Jan. 3...

Sheriff Norman Chaffins said the couple have evaded deputies, and now they're accused of stealing two cars. He said the couple stole a car and crashed it, and then ran from police and stole another car.

Authorities said the two did not have any cash, so they are worried about what they might do for money.

GRAYSON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says a 13-year-old girl and her boyfriend Dalton Hayes were spotted in South Carolina.

Grayson County deputies are searching for Dalton Hayes, 18, and a minor, 13.

Update:

A Kentucky teenager accused of a string of crimes across the South says he and his girlfriend were trying to escape her abusive family and that he wishes he had bought bus tickets instead of stealing trucks as they moved toward Florida.

Officials say 18-year-old Dalton Hayes and his girlfriend, a 13-year-old girl, began their run this month when they vanished from Leitchfield, Kentucky. (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/01/20/teen-in-bonnie-and-clyde-crime-spree-abusive-family-was-motive-for-running)

Quote
Hayes told The News Herald of Panama City they planned to make it to Miami. He said if he could go back, he'd take the bus instead.

The father of the 13-year-old girl said Tuesday that claims that she was abused at home are "completely bogus."

"Anyone that knows us knows better. My family is pretty well respected in the community."

The two teens will face charges including burglary, theft, criminal trespassing and criminal mischief, said Norman Chaffins, the sheriff of Grayson County, Ky. Hayes could also face charges relating to his relationship with the girl, who is not of the legal age to consent to sex in any of the states the pair was spotted in over the last two weeks.

Judge: Woman accused of running granddaughter to death can't be paid for interviews (http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2015/01/reporters_barred_from_paying_f.html)

Quote
An Alabama judge took the unusual step of barring the media from paying for interviews about the upcoming trial of a woman charged with capital murder in the running death of her 9-year-old granddaughter.

An order by Etowah County Circuit Judge William Ogletree prohibits media organizations from offering or making payments to witnesses or parties for coverage in the trial of Joyce Garrard, 49, of Boaz.

Garrard, who faces a possible death sentence if convicted, is set for trial next month in the 2012 death of Savannah Hardin. Authorities contend the woman made the child run as punishment for a lie about candy until the girl collapsed and died.

Garrard has pleaded not guilty, and defense lawyers blame the child's death on medical treatment decisions and health conditions they say existed before her collapse.

Quote
OCEAN SPRINGS, Mississippi -- A new film featuring Dolph Lundgren, known for "Rocky IV" and "Universal Soldier," will be filmed this month at the Jackson County Small Craft Harbor, county leaders said.

The film, called "Shark Lake," is about a shark infestation at Lake Tahoe.

Harbor leaders went before the Jackson County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday to seek permission to create a draft movie location agreement with the production company, a request that supervisors unanimously granted.

Supervisor Troy Ross said he was okay with the filming "as long as they don't monopolize that boat launch and keep our residents from using it."

The filming is expected to take place from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. on either Feb. 1 or 11. One boat launch will remain open to the public.

Supervisors said the production company should also be reminded to keep the noise level down so nearby residents aren't disturbed...

Flashlights are great for providing light at night, but not as vehicle headlights!

A Sweetwater resident was stopped not once, but twice in an eighteen hour period for driving his vehicle after dark while only using flashlights to light up the roadway. The motorist had strapped flashlights onto his bumper with a bungee cord. The motorist was first stopped at approximately 2:00 a.m. on February 2, 2015, in East Knoxville. The same vehicle was stopped by another officer at approximately 8:00 p.m. on the same day in North Knoxville. In both traffic stops the driver was cited for Improper Headlights, Violation of the State Registration Law, and Driving Without Insurance.

Bungee-cording two flashlights to the front bumper of a vehicle is not acceptable as proper headlights and is very dangerous to the driver and other vehicles sharing the road.

Quote
Ashley McIntyre and Danny Robinson got engaged on Christmas, less than a year after McIntyre heard about Robinson's plight as a 25-year-old dialysis patient and decided to donate her kidney to him, a total stranger...

Even University of Kentucky transplant experts were amazed by the couple's unique love story. Putting their romance aside, only 1 percent of living kidney donations are from strangers, said UK Transplant Coordinator Todd Maynard. Overall in Kentucky last year, there were 135 kidney transplants, 33 involving living donors — so Maynard said the couple's transplant was likely one of the only live donations between strangers across the state.

McIntyre didn't realize how much her gift would change her own life as well.

She first learned about Robinson from her mom, Kim McIntyre, who heard Robinson's mother talking about his need for a kidney on the WHAS Radio show "Terry Meiners & Co." while driving from Nashville to Louisville in mid-January of last year.

Robinson had been diagnosed at age 16 with IgA nephropathy, which occurs when an antibody lodges in the kidneys, causing inflammation that gradually damages kidney function. "I was on dialysis three days a week, four hours a day," said Robinson, an electrician. Family members offered to donate their kidneys, but "nobody matched," he said, so he spent two years on the transplant waiting list.

Robinson's story touched McIntyre deeply. "He was so young" and had lost his father to cancer, she said. "It was devastating."

The next day, she sent a Facebook message to Meiners and soon got in contact with representatives from UK's transplant program. She began undergoing a battery of blood tests and Miss tests, plus an EKG and a psychosocial review. For each step in the pre-transplant testing, "it was just one match after another," Kim McIntyre said. "I thought, 'This can't be coincidence.' "

Maynard said their kidneys were "a match but not a perfect match. ... A perfect match is very rare, 1 out of 100,000."

What did match perfectly were their personalities — although they didn't know it then. ..

It had been almost two hours since John Clark's wife, Kristi, had said she was taking her young son on a quick run to the grocery store Monday night.

The husband was at their Franklin home, giving their 4-year-old daughter a bedtime bath after the family had spent the snow day sledding.

At about 10:15, he drove the route he thought his wife might have taken to the market. When he didn't find her, he called the Franklin Police Department. They told him to head to Williamson Medical Center.

"I'm an attorney, so when you hear that phrase — you hear that dispatch won't tell you what's going on — you know something bad's up," he said.

Kristi Clark and her son, 10-year-old Carter Oakley, had rushed to the aid of passengers in an SUV that had rolled over in front of them on Interstate 65, not far from their home. Both were struck and killed by a passing tractor trailer.

"Kristi and her son, Carter, are heroes," Franklin Police Chief Deborah Faulkner said later in a statement...

Jonathan Bleiweiss, 34, pleaded guilty to an array of charges last week, admitting to 14 counts of armed false imprisonment, 15 counts of battery and four counts of stalking. However, he avoided all of the charges with “sex” in them.

2 Tennessee prep basketball teams banned from postseason after being caught 'tanking' | http://ow.ly/JAVWc

Quote
Two girls high school basketball teams in Tennessee have been removed from the playoffs for intentionally trying to lose.

...Murfreesboro Riverdale and Smyrna were also fined $1,500 and put on a year of probation by the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association. The TSSAA found that both schools had intentionally turned the ball over and missed free throws during a game Saturday that Smyrna won 55-28.

The winner of the game would have faced defending Class AAA champion Blackman (25-2) in the playoffs. The loser would have faced a less-powerful team in the playoffs.

The game's referee wrote in his report to the TSSAA that Riverview and Smyrna that he stopped play several times to order coaches to play to win. TSSAA executive director Bernard Childress wrote in letters to the schools' principals that the teams "made a mockery" of the game.

According to the arrest warrant, the incident involved two women, one of which was hospitalized and has identified Jones as her assailant.

Jones was suspended for a game last week for what was termed a "non-basketball matter," then reinstated for Saturday's victory over Miami. The incidents reportedly happened that night.

Jones was dismissed from the team Sunday. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Jones had allegedly threatened a third woman, his girlfriend, via text message.

Ebola nurse Nina Pham to sue hospital where she worked. http://res.dallasnews.com/interactives/nina-pham/ …

Quote
The 26-year-old nurse says she has nightmares, body aches and insomnia as a result of contracting the disease from a patient she cared for last fall at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

“I wanted to believe that they would have my back and take care of me, but they just haven’t risen to the occasion,” Pham told The Dallas Morning News last week in an exclusive interview.

Pham says she will file a lawsuit Monday in Dallas County against Texas Health Resources alleging that while she became the American face of the fight against the disease, the hospital’s lack of training and proper equipment and violations of her privacy made her “a symbol of corporate neglect — a casualty of a hospital system’s failure to prepare for a known and impending medical crisis.”

She says that Texas Health Resources was negligent because it failed to develop policies and train its staff for treating Ebola patients. She says Texas Health Resources did not have proper protective gear for those who treated Duncan.

Texas Health Resources responded Friday with a statement from spokesman Wendell Watson.

“Nina Pham bravely served Texas Health Dallas during a most difficult time. We continue to support and wish the best for her, and we remain optimistic that constructive dialogue can resolve this matter.”

Audit: Former Harlan sheriff should repay $27,000 spent on dating website, other items (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/03/02/3722561_audit-former-harlan-sheriff-should.html)

Quote
The former sheriff of Harlan County spent more than $27,000 over two years for purchases that were poorly documented, unreasonable or improper, including personal clothing, food and alcohol, and a subscription to a dating website, according to audits released Monday.

Marvin Lipfird, who left office at the end of the year, should repay the money to accounts in his old office, auditors recommended.

The reports from Auditor Adam Edelen's office also said Lipfird's office could not account for more than $9,300 in drug-buy money in 2012. That finding will be referred to Kentucky State Police for further investigation, the audit said.

An audit covering 2012 said another finding — that Lipfird registered vehicles used in drug investigations under fake names — will be referred to the state Transportation Cabinet.

There is no state law allowing a sheriff to get titles for vehicles under assumed names, and there are penalties for knowingly providing false information to get a vehicle title, the audit said...

The reports said some of the spending was for items that were not reasonable or necessary, including $2,159 for food, including alcohol; $1,162 in hotel charges; $453 for personal clothing; $135 for baby items; $90 for a massage; and $1,718 for personal purchases that were not described.

The disallowed costs included $659 that Lipfird's office spent for subscriptions to websites, including a dating site and a site offering legal advice, and a $250 payment to an attorney for advice related to the contract for a reality television show.

A camera crew followed Lipfird and his officers for a show called Kentucky Justice that aired on the National Geographic channel for several episodes beginning in late 2013.

Lipfird told the Harlan Daily Enterprise that he and his deputies received no pay for the show...

“I‘ve wanted a treehouse for the longest time, and we have a great tree for it,” the Raising Cane’s founder said.

The forts Graves and his buddies built in their youth, however, bear little resemblance to what Pete Nelson and his crew have created for the family.

The tri-level treehouse constructed in a massive oak is approached from the ground by a sturdy staircase leading to the 12-by-18-foot living space — a roomy, lighted sunset deck with seating and a fireplace-grill combination; and an indoor gathering spot with a couch, bar, microwave, fridge, sink and flat-screen TV. A tiny half-bath is located off this room. The exterior is cypress, the interior pine. “Todd had a skylight in his first store, and he does this disco ball thing, so we have a few of those around,” Nelson said, pointing upward at the large, rectangular skylight.

More light pours in from groups of windows around the space. “A big treehouse needs to be full of windows, I think, so you know you’re in the trees,” Nelson said.

A longtime builder in Washington state, Nelson was able to shift his company to treehouse-projects-only after the national exposure gained from the Animal Planet series, he said.

A 9-year-old boy was shot while riding in a vehicle with his parents in Lexington on Saturday afternoon.

The boy suffered a life-threatening injury after being shot in the neck area, police Lt. Kevin Metcalf said. Police initially thought the boy had been shot in the shoulder. (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/03/07/3733197/9-year-old-boy-is-shot-while-riding.html)

Quote
Metcalf said police believe that the shooting happened while a GMC Envoy in which the boy was riding was "in motion" on Hollow Creek Road, and that the boy's parents then drove into the parking lot to get help.

Metcalf said at least two shots were fired. The back window of the Envoy had been shot out. A vehicle parked in front of a house across Russell Cave Road also was hit by gunfire, Metcalf said.

Metcalf said it was "too early to tell" whether the shooting was random or what might have happened before the incident.

Clerks who were working in the shops said they saw the boy's parents outside the vehicle crying but did not hear any gunshots.

Quote
Every weekend, around 11 p.m., the pilgrimage begins.

Students at Vanderbilt University spill out of dorm rooms and apartments and make their way to a cluster of dimly lit watering holes a few minutes from campus.

They lean against bars and fill dance floors in Midtown and along Demonbreun Street. On a Friday night in February, the college students drank alongside older Nashvillians and tourists at Rebar, Tin Roof and South.

They balanced plastic cups filled to the brim and dodged broken beer bottles while squeezing through the densely packed crowd, rubbing against a sea of shoulders, backs and hips along the way.

It's a weekend ritual repeated at popular college nightspots across Tennessee.

Metro Nashville Police Sgt. John Pepper walks a beat of tough love on his graveyard patrol shift, which overlaps peak drinking time.

Pepper's Midtown Hills Precinct covers three universities and the bars in Midtown and on Demonbreun Street. Those worlds collide, especially on busy nights like Thursday and Friday, and Pepper makes a point to patrol the areas on foot.

"Especially near college campuses, you're going to have the tendency to have underage kids trying to get into bars," he said. "It's not new. It happens everywhere."

Arrests for underage drinking have declined about 13 percent in Nashville in the past five years, something Pepper attributes to bar owners' efforts to crack down on fake IDs and over-serving, as well as increased patrol efforts...

Butterball, one of the largest U.S. turkey processors, confirmed Wednesday that it determined “a limited number of our turkeys” from contract farms had been diagnosed with H5N2 avian influenza.

No human cases of the H5N2 virus have been detected in the U.S., and the strain poses a low risk to human health, USDA officials said.

A football player at The Citadel remained in critical condition Thursday morning, two days after collapsing during practice.

Redshirt freshman running back DaSean Daniels underwent emergency surgery Tuesday night to relieve pressure on his skull, according to a report by South Carolina TV station WIS. Daniels collapsed Tuesday upon lining up for the next play after carrying the ball, according to the Post and Courier.

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, where his family joined him. He had bleeding on his brain due to a detached vein in his head, father David Daniels said.

"He is getting better," David Daniels told the Post and Courier. "The doctors and nurses are very optimistic and say he is progressing a lot faster than they expected. He's very conscious and is responding to the things the doctors ask him to do, giving them the thumbs up."

Daniels, a native of Lawrenceville, Ga., graduated from Greater Atlanta Christian High School in 2012 and spent a year at Navy before transferring to The Citadel. Daniels overcame a bout with bone cancer while at Navy, though his collapse Tuesday is believed to be unrelated...

If you catch gar when fishing in Alabama, you can throw it back in the water, but you have to kill it first.

You can't sell someone a live chicken after dark.

And if you were training for that next marathon, stop now. Those things, and other contests of endurance, are against the law in this state.

At least they are for now.

A bill passed by the Alabama House this week would repeal more than 300 obsolete laws and regulations. Some have been ruled unconstitutional. Others, like one making it illegal to yield a party line in an emergency, have become obsolete because of technology.

In Alabama currently, it's illegal to:

Burn the teeth of a horse to make it appear younger before selling it...

Participate in or sponsor contests of endurance such as marathons.

Watch, sell tickets to, or participate in bear wrestling (unless, perhaps you are a deceased Alabama would-be football coach who needs a cool nickname)...

Goodlettsville Middle School PE teacher indicted on rape charges http://tnne.ws/1MHOK2L  via @tennessean #crime #nashville

Quote
A former teacher at Goodlettsville Middle School has been indicted and accused of having sex with a 14-year-old student.

Officials said that 32-year-old Shelley Brown, who also used the surname Lott, surrendered at police headquarters Tuesday. She is accused of two counts of statutory rape by an authority figure.

Brown was a physical education teacher at the middle school. Police allege she had sex with the teen boy — who was one of her students — at least twice during the summer of 2014.

At one of Durst's businesses, Durst had a scanner, a copier, and a laminating machine, one employee told Newsweek.

Another employee described Durst as a marijuana user: "His place was fuming with weed and he was stoned all the time."

Law enforcement agencies and multiple media outlets are reporting that seven people were shot at a house party in Panama City Beach Saturday morning.

The emergency meeting of the Panama City Beach City Council has concluded and councilors voted unanimously to fund the hiring of additional police officers with up to $200,000 immediately. An emergency motion to ban alcohol consumption on the beaches until April 18 was defeated 3-2.  (http://www.al.com/news/beaches/index.ssf/2015/03/7_shot_at_panama_city_beach_sp.html)

Quote
Police reportedly were able to respond quickly to the incident and took the shooter into custody and recovered a gun. The Panama City News Herald newspaper reports that seven people were hospitalized "at least one with critical injuries from a shot to the head." There were reportedly more than 100 people at the house party that centered around two condo rental units on Thomas Drive.

Latest update on the condition of the victims is as follows: Powell is now in surgery at a local hospital; Freed, Moore, and Franklin remain hospitalized in critical condition; Young, Curry, and Etheridge remain hospitalized in stable condition.

A description of the suspect was developed and disseminated. Responding units set a perimeter around the residence and a black male matching the description of the suspect was quickly located and detained at Beach Drive and Hurt Street. Witnesses to the shooting confirmed the subject was the shooter and he was identified as David Jamichael Daniels, a black male, age 22, of Mobile.

Witnesses said the driver was speeding when his truck slammed into the bus at around 4:30 p.m. at Naomi Drive and Poplar Level Road.

Bystanders, who saw what was happening, chased after him and held him until police arrived.

“First he was crying and when he saw the people and the kids getting hurt, he took off running,” said Muhammed Ali. “He ran that way, but there were like 200 people after him so he couldn’t escape.”

So, after 7 people are shot & arrests & violence are rising during spring break....the city council doesn't want to ban alcohol on the beach until April 18th?  This vote shows the council is more concerned about local revenue.....than public safety & trying to get to the root of the problem on what is happening during spring break.

Police say they arrested a 31 year old Lexington woman after she strangled a stranger with her bra.

"I thought I was going to die that night,” said the victim, Patricia Leece.

"It happened about 12:30 the other night. Someone came to my doors, banging, screaming and hollering."

Leece says she opened the door to her home on Harrogate Road because she thought it was her granddaughter.

Instead, she tells WKYT that the woman standing there was Ashley Sies. Leece says the 31 year old pushed her way inside and wrapped her bra around her neck.

"She choked me down and we fought for a good 15 to 20 minutes. Finally I saw one of my (ceramic) chickens on the floor so I picked it up and started bashing her on the head with it," Leece explained.

After she knocked her out, she called police.

Investigators say Sies appeared to be on drugs and thought she was being followed when she showed up on Leece's porch early Monday morning.

"She was going door to door hoping someone would let her in. Of course it was me," said Leece

Quote
RAYNE — Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries agents are searching for a Rayne man accused of fleeing from authorities twice on Thursday after stealing crawfish from a farmer on Abbeville Highway.

Cary Gordon Bastian, 28, sped away from the farm in his white Chevrolet Camaro at speeds of more than 100 mph after agents and Acadia Parish Sheriff’s deputies showed up in response to a burglary in progress, according to officials with the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

When authorities tried to apprehend Bastian at his home in the 15900 block of Gordon Road, he fled into a wooded area near the home, a news release about the incident stated.

The farmer told authorities he had been noticing crawfish sacks missing from a locked, outdoor cooler and planted someone to stake out the property in case the thief returned. The spy called law enforcement when he saw Bastian load six bags of crawfish into the trunk of his Camaro, the department said.

Bastian is wanted on one count each of simple burglary, reckless operation and aggravated flight from an officer.

SCSU football player performs heroic act in accident: http://bit.ly/1yMQmQo  via @thetandd

Quote
SAVANNAH, Ga. – South Carolina State junior defensive end Reggie Owens was a part of a heroic effort that saved the lives three young children involved in a three-vehicle accident near Savannah Saturday.

According to Georgia State Patrol, three young children were thrown from a vehicle after being T-boned by another vehicle. Frederick Cobbs was arrested on the scene after witnesses say he ran the red light at the intersection. He was given a blood test after performing poorly on his field sobriety test.

Owens who was traveling back home from college (S.C. State) for the holiday weekend saw the accident happen. He says three children were ejected after the white car that Cobbs was driving T-boned the vehicle, ejecting them as it spun through the intersection.

“I stopped; I was the first on the scene. I rushed out to make sure everyone was okay. As I approached the cars, I saw one child that fell from under the car. I had to pull him from under the car to keep him from being run over,” said Reggie Owens, witness.

Owens, a current junior and All-MEAC performer on the S.C. State Championship football team, never thought he would be in this position.

“I thought ‘this is bad,' I immediately had somebody tend to him. I had a shirt; I took my shirt off. I plugged his wound. I had to stop the bleeding; he was bleeding profusely. I knew I couldn't move the bodies but I could at least stop the bleeding,” said Owen

Owens is shown here on Nov. 7, 2013, reading the book “Sir Ryan’s Quest” to children at the Child Development Center on the campus of South Carolina State University.

The real difference is behind the scenes.

Lowder is hell-benmt on supplanting Alabama as the flagship University in  the state of Alabama. He is too stubborn to realize that it simply won't happen.  8)

After 73 years of marriage, Kentucky couple die within minutes of each other (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/04/09/3792927_after-73-years-of-marriage-kentucky.html)

Quote
A man and wife for 73 years, Lillian Karr Wilson William E. "Wild Bill" Wilson, both Alzheimer’s patients died within minutes of each other at separate nursing homes in central Kentucky.

 When the subject of death came up, Lillian Karr Wilson would say, "I'm not going till Bill goes."

Her words came true Tuesday, when she died at a Lexington nursing home minutes after her husband of 73 years, William "Wild Bill" Wilson, died at Thomson-Hood Veterans Center in Wilmore.

He was 93 and had lived at the veterans nursing home for five years. She was 89 and had been at Richmond Place for more than two years. Both were Alzheimer's patients, said son Doug Wilson of Lexington...

n his later years, Bill Wilson was called "Wild Bill" at Thomson-Hood, where he would sometimes re-enact his radio show in the cafeteria.

On Sunday, when Doug Wilson, 66, visited his father at Thomson-Hood. Bill Wilson was wearing oxygen mask and "barely hanging on," his son said.

"I wanted to talk to him, and I got down there in his face and held his arm, and he squeezed my hand a little bit," Doug Wilson said. "I just told him, 'This is Wild Bill Wilson, your red-headed, freckle-faced, snaggle-toothed, snuff-dipping buddy.' And underneath the mask there, he grinned real big. He heard it. I was glad of that."

The end came at 3:52 a.m. Tuesday, when the phone rang and Thomson-Hood informed Doug Wilson that his father had died.

"Five minutes later, at 3:57 a.m., I got a call from Richmond Place: 'Doug, I'm sorry to tell you, your mother has passed.'"

When Doug called Thomson-Hood to tell them that his mother had died, "the nurse said, 'Oh, my God, that's like The Notebook,'" referring to the popular novel and movie about a couple dealing with Alzheimer's who die together in their sleep.

TSA agent - fired after recording woman in Nashville airport bathroom - sentenced to jail, treatment http://tnne.ws/1ygHcBa  via @tennessean

Quote
A former Nashville TSA agent who became obsessed with a woman — taking video of her in an airport bathroom and breaking into her house five times — was sentenced Thursday to six months in jail.

Criminal Court Judge Randall Wyatt stressed, in handing down the sentence, that 33-year-old Daniel Boykin should continue mental health treatment after his release from jail. The sentence includes more than 5 years of probation with strict supervision and GPS monitoring for Boykin. Boykin will begin the jail term Monday.

Authorities said Boykin had 92 videos of the victim — 29 taken from a bathroom inside Nashville International Airport — and 1,527 photographs of the woman.

"My biggest disappointment in terms of justice was that under current law, (Boykin) doesn't have to register as a sex offender," Vallee read from the statement. "Because my main motivation for justice is reducing the possibility that he will ever do this again to anyone else."

Man stole $170K from churches to fuel cocaine addiction http://tnne.ws/1Fyq2i0  via @tennessean #theft #crime #williamson #nashville

Quote
A Nashville man who stole about $170,000 in checks from church mailboxes to fund his cocaine addiction was sentenced Monday to three years and nine months in federal prison.

Federal judge William J. Haynes handed down the sentence, to be followed by three years of parole, for Kenneth J. Stopkotte, 49. Stopkotte was already serving a four-year sentence for stealing checks from a church in Williamson County, officials said.

David Rivera, U.S. attorney for the middle district of Tennessee, said Stopkotte also was ordered to repay nearly $170,000 he stole.

In a letter to the judge, Stopkotte said he stole the money to fuel a cocaine addiction after he lost his job and family. Twelve people wrote letters to the judge in support of Stopkotte. Many asked for a lenient sentence for the man they said had good character.

“I began to commit criminal offenses to support my habits and the mounting financial debt that came along with it,” he wrote. He wrote that he was humiliated about stealing from the churches.

“Quite frankly, I’m thankful I was arrested and my drug and alcohol usage was brought to an immediate halt,” he wrote.

In a plea agreement, Stopkotte admitted to stealing the money between August 2012 and February 2013 and depositing it into bank accounts he controlled at five banks or credit unions. He also laundered about $48,000 by nine wire transfers to the Federal Bank of the Middle East in Cyprus.

Stopkotte pleaded guilty in September to charges of bank larceny, access device fraud and money laundering.

In the Williamson County case, Stopkotte made about 170 deposits from checks payable to 15 churches in Brentwood, Nashville, Franklin, Bellevue and Murfreesboro, according to court records.

Stopkotte failed to show up for a sentencing in that case in April 2013, and authorities later found him in Mexico.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Portland man caught a guy trying to break into his car. He recorded it on video, called 911 and chased the suspect until officers arrived -- but the real story is why police had to let the suspect go and are now trying to find him again.

It hasn't been the best week for Rock Wright. The UK fan who inked a perfect season tattoo a bit too soon has to wear the public embarrassment of covering it up. He turned his tattoo that once said 40-0 into an homage recognizing UK's 2012 season by changing the numbers to 38-2 for the school's last NCAA championship.

"You can see how the five has turned into a two," Wright said, pointing out the fix on his tattoo.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, he said his car was broken into. (http://www.wdrb.com/story/28753532/catch-and-release-why-lmpd-couldnt-arrest-man-caught-on-video-allegedly-breaking-into-car)

Wright said "I watched a guy coming past my car, creeping."

It happened around 7 a.m. on Tuesday -- and it's all on surveillance video captured from Wright's front door.

"He got my door open...when I came busting out after him," Wright said. "I literally watched him myself and chased him from the time he left my door till the time cops got him with his break-in tool. I followed him the whole time."

But again, Wright fell short of the win.

"They (police) straight-up told me if they didn't see it, it never happened," he said.

Kentucky law limits when an arrest can be made on a misdemeanor charge. The person in the video didn't steal anything from Wright, so even though he's on camera, officers had to let him go.

"My auto theft detective is currently following up on that case now," said Sgt. Jim Cirillo, of the Louisville Metro Police Department. "We are attempting to take out a criminal compliant on the suspect."

What's worse, Wright wasn't the only one to experience a car break-in.

"I saw a big hole in the driver's side door," said Douglas Griffin, another victim. "Since the alarm is so loud that's probably what scared him off."

"We just purchased the car," said Stephani Rains, a break-in victim. "We hadn't even had it a week."

"Stuck something in to unlock the door," said Sally Miller, another victim "Ripped into the glove compartment, went through all the papers."

"They stole a navigator out of our vehicle," Miller said.

Sgt. Cirillo says the same guy may be behind at least seven car break-ins in the Portland neighborhood this week.

"They let him go and gave him his tools back and that's what's really disturbing to me," Rains said.

"We care very much," said Sgt. Cirillo. "We can't just do things our own way because we don't think it's right. We have to follow the law the way it's written out."

Portland neighbors fear the suspect will continue to break into cars while police compile their case. In the meantime, Wright has posted his video to Facebook....going for neighborhood MVP.

UPDATE: Late Wednesday afternoon Louisville Metro Police took out a warrant against Damon Shelby-Harris...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Portland man caught a guy trying to break into his car. He recorded it on video, called 911 and chased the suspect until officers arrived -- but the real story is why police had to let the suspect go and are now trying to find him again.

It hasn't been the best week for Rock Wright. The UK fan who inked a perfect season tattoo a bit too soon has to wear the public embarrassment of covering it up. He turned his tattoo that once said 40-0 into an homage recognizing UK's 2012 season by changing the numbers to 38-2 for the school's last NCAA championship.

"You can see how the five has turned into a two," Wright said, pointing out the fix on his tattoo.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, he said his car was broken into. (http://www.wdrb.com/story/28753532/catch-and-release-why-lmpd-couldnt-arrest-man-caught-on-video-allegedly-breaking-into-car)

Well, this guy with the tattoo...."Rock Wright"...better hope that Kentucky doesn't get hit with some major NCAA violations.  Just imagine him having to get that tattoo altered again, if Kentucky has to forfeit a bunch....or all of those games... ;D

About 40 police officers and sheriff's deputies are on the scene of a shooting and possible hostage situation at a doctor's office in Jemison, AL (http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/index.ssf/2015/04/shooting_hostage_situation_und.html)

Quote
About 40 police officers and sheriff's deputies are on the scene of a shooting and possible hostage situation at a doctor's office in Jemison.

City and sheriff's officials said the shooting happened a short time ago, about 9:30 a.m. at the office of Dr. Jayprakash Patel's in the 2400 block of U.S. 31. The highway is closed south of County Road 42.

Witnesses said a woman, who lives next door to Patel's office, got into some kind of domestic situation with her ex-husband or ex-boyfriend. She ran to the doctor's office yelling for help, said Jose Arreola, the owner of Chico's tire shop across the street.

Arreola said the woman got inside the front door of the clinic. "The guy was trying to get her,'' he said. "The doctors came out to help her but he pulled a gun and shot her."

"She was laying there a long time,'' Arreola said.

The gunman fled. It wasn't immediately clear if he ran back into the woman's home, but city officials believe that's where he was holed up. Arreola said the police have surrounded that home.

Jemison and Thorsby schools were placed on lockdown Monday morning following the shooting, Chilton County School Superintendent Tommy Glasscock posted on the school's website. School officials asked that parents not call 911, assuring them that students are safe.

Police have not announced any arrests in the case. A man believed to be the suspect wrote the following on his Facebook page this morning: "im sorry everyone, its been real, good bye and i love you all."

He also wrote, "I dei today." (sic)

Three swim and dive coaches are losing their jobs, one athlete is facing criminal charges and the entire swimming and diving program at Western Kentucky University was suspended for five years following a university Title IX investigation and a separate Bowling Green Police Department investigation.

WKU President Gary Ransdell and athletic director Todd Stewart announced the decision to suspend the program to the 50-plus team members and coaches this morning.

"These investigations revealed flagrant violations of our Student Code of Conduct and sexual harassment policies," Ransdell said in a memo this morning to WKU faculty and staff. "Specifically, the violations include hazing, underage alcohol consumption and abuse, including engagement of (prospective) student athletes on recruiting visits to campus. Additionally, the investigations found that coaches were aware of this pervasive culture and failed to sufficiently eliminate inappropriate behavior within these teams."

If police discover that any nude or partially nude person in the photographs was under age 18 when the photos were taken, anyone who has been possessed those photographs or took them could face child pornography charges, which could result in any guilty parties being placed on the sex offender registry, Milliken said.

"The statute of limitations never expires on a felony," Milliken said. Police continue to seek information on potential victims in this case...

Lee County (Georgia) Sheriff's deputies said 54-year-old Larry McElroy was outside when he fired his 9 mm pistol at the armadillo. The bullet killed the animal, but also ricocheted off of it, hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law's mobile home, through a recliner she was sitting in, and into her back.

According to a report, McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home at the time.

I talked to a woman who Britt McHenry attacked on Twitter last month: http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2015/04/post_670.html … @richarddeitsch @awfulannouncing

Quote
ESPN reporter Britt McHenry, who was suspended for a week by the network on Thursday after a video of her verbally berating a woman became public, has previously bullied at least one another woman, this time on Twitter.

Last month, Sarah Sparkman, an Arkansas-based attorney, was having a conversation on Twitter about the sexualization of women in sports broadcasting. Sparkman, who majored in journalism in college, took issue with female journalists being branded more as sexual objects than for their talents...

McHenry wrote that Sparkman was "more of a hater than the men themselves" and insinuated she wasn't pretty. ... Sparkman talked about women being beautiful and intelligent; McHenry replied "I believe it's the ppl who don't have 1 trait or the other who try to demean others."

After those tweets, Sparkman tweeted, "Man, I swear I can't give an opinion without some rando on Twitter seeking me out and bashing their misinterpretation."

This seemed to set McHenry off.

She replied "Technically given the two of us, you're the rando" and "you sound really bitter. If you work as hard as you say you do, you wouldn't bash more successful ppl on Twitter."

In the video that went viral, McHenry insulted the tow lot woman's education and looks, while reminding the woman multiple times that she was on television. She later issued an apology saying she "allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things."

Sparkman wasn't surprised when she watched the leaked video leaked, which shows McHenry at one point telling the other woman "lose some weight, baby girl".

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CDIa2pGWgAAukhZ.jpg)

Quote
In the infamous “Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Heist” last year, a number of barrels of Pappy mysteriously disappeared from the legendary bourbon distillery. Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton held a news conference on Tuesday in which he said nine people have been indicted for stealing over $100,000 worth of bourbon over the course of the last seven years. The nine individuals included three that worked inside bourbon distilleries (one at Wild Turkey and two at Buffalo Trace) and together they hatched a plan that involved exploiting each bourbon’s security weaknesses in order to take massive amounts of the product. According to the sheriff, all nine met while playing on a local softball team, where they hatched the plan and formed a “criminal syndicate” to engage in the illegal trafficking of bourbon. Over the course of the seven years, they were able to steal bottles and a number of barrels, the conspicuous nature of the latter of which helped bring them to justice. As the sheriff noted, “how many people do you know that have bourbon barrels at their house?”

Because of the nature of the crime, most of the bourbon is ruined as security requires all the bourbon to be emptied from the barrels and only the unopened bottles could be salvaged.

PANAMA CITY BEACH — A University of Florida fraternity is under investigation after being accused of disrespecting a group of disabled military veterans by spitting on them and stealing their flags at a Panama City Beach resort last weekend.

University of Florida President Kent Fuchs personally apologized for the behavior of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity members toward the veterans participating in the Warrior Beach Retreat at Laketown Wharf Resort. Fuchs promised a full investigation.

“The incidents and behavior you and others have described (in letters and phone calls) and the offense to the wounded warriors and other guests are unacceptable,” Fuchs wrote in a letter emailed to Linda Cope, founder of the Warrior Beach Retreat. “We are pursuing an investigation of the matter to learn more about the involvement of University of Florida students and whether disciplinary action will be needed.”

Teen and boatmate 'lucky, thankful, blessed' to survive Mobile Bay storm that flipped sail boat (http://www.al.com/news/mobile/index.ssf/2015/04/teen_and_boatmate_lucky_thankf.html)

Quote
During the 2015 Dauphin Island Regatta a storm capsized their small catamaran and put Hana Blalack and Ron Gaston in the water. It was the first time Blalack, 15, had been sailing. They had already crossed the finish line and were heading back when the storm overtook them. Later, after they were rescued following two and a half hours in the water, they learned just how bad the day really was. Boats were capsized, and sailors were dead or missing.

"Just for a second it was, 'Boat or Hana?'" said Gaston, who has been sailing since he was a teen. "I let go of the rope."

"He told me later that he thought, 'I can get a new boat. I can't get a new Hana,'" added Blalack.

The overturned boat quickly disappeared into the gathering maelstrom of howling wind, blinding rain and building seas.

Now adrift, Gaston and Blalack, who is a sophomore at Spanish Fort High School, held onto each other in an effort to stem impacts of teeth-chattering cold that set in within minutes and to keep from being pulled apart as the storm's fury threatened to do at any second over the next half-hour at least...

A&M Galveston Professor Hits ‘Breaking Point,’ Fails Entire Class (http://houston.cbslocal.com/2015/04/27/texas-am-galveston-professor-hits-breaking-point-fails-entire-class/)

Quote
Galveston, Texas (CBS HOUSTON) — A Texas A&M Galveston professor says he hit a “breaking point” as he failed an entire class of students in his management course that he said required “security guards” for him to feel safe teaching.

In a scathing email sent to students in his Strategic Management class, Texas A&M Galveston professor Irwin Horwitz called his class a disgrace to the school and said “it became apparent they couldn’t do some of the most simple and basic things they should have been able to do,” KPRC-TV reports. Horwitz said a semester of backstabbing, lying, cheating and disrespect has caused him to fail everyone in the class and that he will no longer be teaching the course.

“Enough was enough,” Horwitz wrote in the email obtained by KPRC. “Yesterday I reached the breaking point.”

The lengthy, fiery email to students explained to students why they would all be receiving failing grades, included is Horwitz’s claim that the students were spreading untrue online rumors about his wife and that he felt threatened enough to physically teach the course that he required police protection.

“I was dealing with cheating, dealing with individuals swearing at me both in and out of class, it got to the point that the school had to put security guards at that class and another class,” said Horowitz. He said students’ complete lack of maturity and general incompetence proved they weren’t fit to enter the workforce.

“Just ridiculous, I had never had a problem in the class. I thought I had done pretty well, done pretty well on the first test and then I get an email saying I am going to get an F in the class, it was overwhelming,” said senior John Shaw, who is worried the course credits could mess up a job he has lined up after graduation next month.

But the university’s vice president of academic affairs, Dr. Patrick Louchouarn, said that while administrators respect Horwitz, his failing grades won’t be upheld.

The male suspect tucks his pants into his socks and uses the socks to conceal the energy drinks. The female suspect has been known to use a 2-3 year-old toddler in distracting the store clerks.

We lost our Superman today. On the ride home from Memphis, to keep from going crazy, I had these thoughts - http://rvls.co/1Ansl3b

Quote
Even on Wednesday, as we celebrated two weeks, despite some stats drops and hazy lung scans, positive hopes remained. Then, on Thursday morning, his color changed, complications occurred, and I watched as he was loaded and flown 45 minutes to Memphis.

My son passed away Thursday afternoon in my arms, his tiny hand wrapped around my finger. In those final minutes, we were able to hold him and tell him we love him and what a difference he made on this world. As I sit here numb, angry and writing because I'm struggling to audibly put together words, I'm filled with thanks and incredible appreciation as well as the honor that comes with being that boy's father.

I changed diapers, took his temperature and watched him continuously grab my fingers with his toes during our two weeks together. He opened his eyes and responded to voices and provided proof that God does magnificent things.

But, my main takeaway as I write for therapy and to give thanks, is that in 15 brief days Clark touched more lives and organized more positive human interaction than some of us do over a lifetime. Just four days old, we counted 14 different states where he occupied a spot on the prayer lists at churches.

Talk about a school that is out of control??  Hear about this in Jr. High, & High School's in some parts of the country....but never at a college before.  There is no excuse for the administration of a college to let it get to a point that a professor has to have police protection to teach classes.  The trouble makers should have been weeded out long before that.

Missouri woman tells police she was held captive in wooden box (http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article20022870.html)

Quote
Louis Tuck sensed something was amiss the few times he saw the man and woman who lived in the modest house next door.

“She seemed fearful,” he said. “I grew up in an abusive home, so I know what it looks like.”

Even so, Tuck and other neighbors in the 800 block of East 15th Street in Sedalia were shocked Friday to hear about what allegedly had been happening in that house.

The 38-year-old woman called police Thursday night and told them that her boyfriend, James Barton Horn Jr., 47, had held her captive for four months, sometimes confining her in a wooden box...

When the woman called police from a neighbor’s house, she was “hysterical,” Police Chief John DeGonia said. When officers went to the house, Horn was gone.

After police had obtained a search warrant, they found the kind of wooden box the woman had described. It was made of plywood, 4 feet high and wide and 8 feet deep, said Police Sgt. Josh Howell.

“We did indeed find a homemade wooden container that would certainly contain a human being,” Howell said. “It appeared to be used for just that purpose.”

DeGonia said officers thought the relationship between the woman and Horn “began as consensual, but it eventually led to ‘you can’t leave.’”

Colleagues remember Scott Hunter's 'heart of gold' (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/toronto-man-killed-in-louisville-while-visiting-for-kentucky-derby-1.3060019)

Quote
A Toronto man visiting Louisville for the Kentucky Derby was shot and killed in what appeared to be a robbery attempt late Saturday, local police say.

Scott Hunter, who worked as a bartender at the House on Parliament on Parliament Street, was visiting the area with a friend for the famous horse race.

Three people have been arrested and face murder and robbery charges in connection with Hunter's killing. Among the charged are a brother and sister. They're identified as 19-year-old Tyrone Thomas, 20-year-old Fatima Abu-Diab and 18-year-old Fahed Abu-Diab.

Police believe the trio is responsible for as many as nine robberies in the last three days.

Police said Hunter and a friend were walking around 9 p.m. in the Highland Park neighbourhood of Louisville when they were approached and an altercation ensued. Hunter was shot and pronounced dead at the scene. His friend was not hurt...

John Casey was arrested Feb. 28, a day after a woman contacted police and said Casey inappropriately touched her while she was on a ladder in front of a downtown boot store, according to police. A Davidson County grand jury delivered the two-count indictment last week.

Casey, 44, was arrested on Lower Broadway, where he earned his nickname, "Silver Man," for dressing up in silver clothing and covering himself in silver makeup to earn money.

He faces two felony charges of sexual battery and is in jail..

Deputies walked up to the car and Steele, wearing no clothes, told them she had been drinking.

Sabotage conviction overturned for nun, activists who broke into Y-12 http://tnne.ws/1H7aANq  via @tennessean #tennessee

Quote
NASHVILLE — An 85-year-old nun and two fellow Catholic peace activists who splashed blood on the walls of a bunker holding weapons-grade uranium — exposing vulnerabilities in the nation's nuclear security — were wrongly convicted of sabotage, an appeals court ruled Friday.

At issue was whether Sister Megan Rice, 66-year-old Michael Walli and 59-year-old Greg Boertje-Obed injured national security when they cut through several fences to break into the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge in July 2012. A panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 2-1 decision that they did not.

Once there, the trio had hung banners, prayed and hammered on the outside wall of the bunker to symbolize a Bible passage that refers to the end of war: "They will beat their swords into ploughshares."

Sadly misguided people.  They mean well, but are not really using common sense with some of their actions & what they are saying.

Two of the defendants quotes:

"Nuclear weapons are not our security.  We have an obligation to transform & we're doing it thru symbolic witness".
"The important message of the appeal, is the illegality of Nuclear weapons. They are sabotaging the planet".

Do these people really believe that our country (& the world) would be safer if we got rid of our nuclear weapons?  Do they really think that Russia, North Korea, China, Iran, etc......would just give up all theirs too, & could be trusted to do so?  This is pure fantasy, & would be worse than just dangerous.  It would be self destructive.

AUSTIN, Texas — For three years, Charlotte Brown has been chasing a medal by trying to jump over a bar she couldn't see.

The senior pole vaulter cleared that bar Saturday, earning a third-place finish at the Texas state high school championships. And proudly joining her on the podium as the bronze medal was draped around her neck — her service dog Vador.

"I finally did it," Brown said. "If I could send a message to anybody, it's not about pole vaulting and it's not about track. It's about finding something that makes you happy despite whatever obstacles are in your way."

A fast food employee in Georgetown, Ky. is in a ton of trouble after she stole an ambulance for a quick liquor run to buy a bottle of Fireball.

According to the News-Graphic, Tara Anne Hughes dropped what she was doing at Wendy’s to jump in an ambulance that was idling outside while its crew dined inside the restaurant. Hughes drove it to a nearby liquor store for Fireball and crashed into the store’s awning in the process. The ambulance was found at a Marathon station around the corner, where she was taken into custody.

Hughes is charged with theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 but less than $1 million, driving under the influence, first-degree criminal mischief and possession or use of a radio that sends and receives police signals.

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Davidson County man who has 492 charges filed against him has been arrested again.

Robert Brown, 46, was arrested on Tuesday after police said they found him sitting at an entrance ramp for Interstate 65 drinking a 40-ounce beer.

According to the affidavit, the responding officer found five other empty beer bottles near where Brown was sitting.

"The defendant sits in the same spot almost every day and becomes intoxicated until police come and arrest him," states the affidavit.

Most of the charges against Brown are for public intoxication.

Arrested 492 times??  Most of them are public intoxication??   Maybe one of these judges should sentence him to clean up work detail for about 30 days ...each time he is arrested. Maybe start with cleaning up the area where he is drinking & getting arrested nearly every day.  At least this would cut down on his number of arrests.  Just getting arrested, doesn't seem to bother him.  Got to make it more uncomfortable for him, & interrupt his beer drinking.

The woman's son was also killed.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and Sedalia police went to the house in the 800 block of E. 15th Street after police discovered the body of Sandra Kay Sutton and her 17-year-old son, Zachary Wade Sutton, at a home in Clinton. During a six-hour period, law enforcement teams searched three houses in the area, at times using a robot.

Horn was accused of keeping the 46-year-old Sutton inside a box for four months. He has remained at large since Sutton escaped on April 30. He has been charged with rape, assault, felonious restraint, unlawful use of a weapon, and armed criminal action. He was previously a registered sex offender.

After the bodies were found Thursday, The Clinton Police Department said, "Horn should be considered armed and dangerous."

During an afternoon press conference, Clinton police said surveillance video shows Sutton's car was left outside of Bothwell Hospital in Sedalia at 4:15 a.m. Sutton's family called police at 4:21 a.m.

Clinton police said there was no sign of forced entry at the house where Sutton's body was found.

A chaplin was helping Sutton's family relocate from the crime scene.

According to a probable cause statement released earlier this month, Horn, Jr. and Sutton got into a fight while driving in his car in January. Once they returned to the residence, Horn, Jr. began to build the wooden structure Sutton would be held in. Court documents said Horn, Jr. made Sutton help build the structure saying that she feared for her life if she made any attempt to flee or leave. Sutton said Horn, Jr. would also brandish a knife with a yellow handle by "keeping it near me and showing it to me."

According to police, the wooden structure was 100 inches long, 48 inches wide, and 52 inches tall, and was located in a bedroom. The box was sound proofed with layers of insulation and padding, with a small hole cut to allow air to enter...

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Channel 4 I-Team revealed the new logo for the Tennessee state government and how much it cost to create Wednesday.

Now, online petitions are circulating seeking to keep the famous Tennessee stars in the logo.

After the I-Team's initial report, many Tennesseans took to social media with a sense of humor and a decent amount of outrage about the new logo.

"I've got a 4-year-old granddaughter. She can do better," Donna Levi said.

The new logo comes with a $46,000 price tag that the state paid to Nashville marketing firm GS&F.

Check out my first story for The Tennessean: Man stuck in drainage pipe was 'being adventurous' http://tnne.ws/1S3wUe4  via @tennessean

Quote
A 53-year-old Nashville man who was rescued by emergency personnel Sunday after spending four days stuck in an 18-inch drainage pipe told authorities he was "being adventurous."

The man told Nashville Fire Department engineer Larry McCown he entered a storm drain off Charlotte Avenue Thursday evening and had been stuck in the pipe for four days.

The man was heard crying for help during an event at the Centennial Sportsplex Tennis Center...

"I never told him we were about to get him out because I didn't want to give him false hope," McCown said. "But we were able to bring him up out of the opening, and EMS patient care took him."

McCown emphasized that the 15 to 18 emergency personnel working to free the man worked "smooth, cool, and organized."

"I had the easy part. The real hard, exhausting work was by the crew with the sledge hammers and hydraulic tools," McCown said.

Dog found in dead owner's arms after tornado starts new life: http://cbsn.ws/1Ln88kq 

Quote
VAN, Texas -- An 8-year-old dog is getting a second chance at life -- just two weeks after a deadly tornado hit her hometown.

The Great Pyrenees was found alive in the arms of her owner David Tapley, who was killed in Van, Texas, after his home collapsed.

The dog had bruises, a busted eardrum and head trauma. To add to her injuries, she was also homeless and without an owner.

That's when Nicolas Pet Haven stepped in.

The dog was taken to the Texas animal shelter, where she was introduced to volunteer Missy Shockley.

Shockley found the gentle giant in the back of a crate.

"She didn't want to [come out] so I climb back into the pickup and started loving on her and she came into my lap," Shockley told CBS Dallas.

And that's all it took.

Within a week, the dog renamed "Emma," was adopted.

"Knowing what she went through -- knowing what that they lost their lives -- maybe she was put in my hands for a reason," says Shockley.

Nashville attorney hopes scholarship contest will curb texting and driving, here's scholarship info: http://tnne.ws/1SnNoha  #itcanwait

Quote
A Nashville law firm is offering $1,000 scholarships to high school and college students whose essays best answer this question: If you had to convince just one friend not to text and drive, what would you say?

"Half of my cases are the result of texting and driving," said David Weissman, a personal injury attorney at Hollins Raybin and Weissman. "When I was a baby lawyer, it was drinking and driving, and now it's texting and driving, which is essentially the same thing."

Weissman is both personally and professionally passionate about the topic. He admits he gets angry when he sees drivers on cellphones.

"I've got an 18-year-old and a 15-year-old who just started driving," he said. "A couple of years back we got hit from behind from a kid who was texting while driving. Fortunately we weren't hurt, but it scared me to death."

Texting while driving is illegal in Tennessee and most other states. Last year in Tennessee there were 21,021 distracted driving crashes — a category that includes the use of cellphones and other distractions — that injured 8,602 people and killed 48, according to the Governor's Highway Safety Office.

This is the first year the firm has offered scholarships. Weissman said he hopes the scholarship encourages young adults to spread the word about the dangers of texting behind the wheel, especially during the Memorial Day weekend when many will be traveling...

Quote
CARROLLTON — Adam Horine leaned on the courtroom podium, wept and begged.

He called himself "crazy" but insisted he could represent himself. He said he was dying and needed care.

The April 22 hearing before Carroll District Judge Elizabeth Chandler stood out from Horine's many other court appearances over the years for an array of mostly minor offenses.

In a rambling, sometimes confusing dialogue with the judge, Horine, 31, his voice cracking, said he loved Kentucky, but "they are trying to force me out."

Horine was absolutely right. Just hours later, he'd be embarking — alone — on a 900-mile, one-way bus trip to Florida, courtesy of the Carrollton Police Department.

"I should be in the hospital," Horine pleaded with the judge during the hearing. "I have mental illness, and I say things I shouldn't say. But I would never hurt anybody. I never have."

Chandler responded that Horine looked sick, according to a video of the hearing obtained by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting. And she questioned his competence to enter a plea to misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and making verbal threats.

She ordered an immediate mental-health examination and transport to Eastern State Hospital in Lexington for a more thorough psychiatric assessment.

Within hours, a social worker's preliminary evaluation at the Carroll County jail determined Horine was hearing voices, felt suicidal, was not sleeping, had no medication and wanted to hurt "certain people."

The next step was Eastern State, where Horine could receive the treatment the social worker and the judge thought he urgently needed.

But Carrollton police had a very different plan for Horine. They wanted him out of town and out of the state. They wanted to rid themselves of this tormented petty criminal. They wanted to make him someone else's problem.

So, just hours after the hearing, a police officer, acting at the direction of police Chief Michael Willhoite, plucked Horine from jail. Officer Ron Dickow drove him 50 miles in a police cruiser to Louisville. Arriving at the Greyhound terminal downtown before dawn, Dickow bought Horine a one-way bus ticket to Florida with money provided by the chief.

Dickow forked over the change — about $18 — to Horine. Then he sent the emotionally troubled man on a 28-hour solitary bus ride to the Sunshine State's west coast.

"This just doesn't happen. It's not supposed to happen in our system," David Harris, associate dean and a professor of criminal law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, said of the actions taken against Horine.

The move seemingly defies basic accepted 21st-century police practices. It also raises questions about why police dispatched this distressed man with pending criminal charges out of state, and whether they intentionally ignored the judge's orders, according to a KyCIR review of court and jail documents and interviews with two dozen local and state officials and criminal-justice experts...

Murderer came, went from Hinds jail as he pleased (http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2015/05/28/mdoc-probes-hinds-county-inmate-allegations/28121999)

Quote
A convicted murderer split wood, baled hay and even stayed away overnight from the Hinds County Detention Center, a state Department of Corrections investigation has found.

"He's supposed to be in there for life," Corrections Commissioner Marshall Fisher said. "My investigators told me he was worked on numerous officers' personal vehicles."

Jerry Mack, 49, a state inmate who was also serving time for aggravated assault and cocaine possession, was changing out of regular clothing into green and white striped clothing issued by the Mississippi Department of Corrections when corrections officials arrived Wednesday afternoon to transport him to Central Mississippi Correctional Facility.

"In a weekly timeframe, I normally run by my house twice a week. I try to sleep at my house twice a month," Mack was quoted as telling investigators. "When I was away from the HSO (Hinds Sheriff's Office) Farm, the dispatcher at the HSO Farm would call my cell phone and tell me where to go. To my knowledge everyone at the HSO Farm was aware that I had a cell phone."

Mack also alleged he stored his horse at the farm and was paid cash to work on cars, bail hay, clean houses, split wood, gather eggs at locations off prison grounds and do other errands in a county vehicle.

When corrections officials stopped him Wednesday, they found $435 in his pocket, a cell phone and a valid driver's license. Fisher said they're still investigating how Mack got that license.

Fisher said it is obvious Mack wasn't supervised based strictly on the contraband found on him...

Lol.  Guess this is the new, modern prison (correction) system. Looks like it needs a little "correcting", itself.  Mississippi appears to be breaking new ground...with correction facility procedures.

No reason to escape from a prison, when they pretty much let you drive around in a county vehicle.  Also, letting him go home a few nights a month, & being on..."call by use of his cellphone"...is certainly a new idea for imprisoned felons.

Glad they caught him before hunting season rolled around. Can just see him out there on a deer stand somewhere, in a camo/orange convict's uniform.... :)

Mills was dressed as MSU's mascot "Bully" when Mississippi State played Ole Miss at Davis Wade Stadium on Nov. 28, 2013. During the game an ESPN cart ran over Mills' leg while she was wearing the mascot costume on the field. The accident caused a compound fracture and led to two subsequent surgeries immediately after the game. According to the lawsuit, Mills still experiences pain despite the procedure that including placing a rod in her leg.

Quote
Why do we let inmates have last meals of their choosing?

Nobody really knows, but Brent Cunningham writes that one theory is the state wants to look more humane than the people it's executing.

Texas, however, doesn't want to be that dignified anymore. The Lone Star State ended its last meal policy in 2011, after a convicted killer ordered a massive meal that he decided not to eat. Here's what he ordered, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"two chicken fried steaks, a triple-meat bacon cheeseburger, a cheese omelet, a large bowl of fried okra, three fajitas, a pint of Blue Bell ice cream, and a pound of barbecue with a half loaf of white bread."

Ruined it for everyone else.

A 36-year-old woman faces drug and child endangerment charges after police say she overdosed on heroin while babysitting two young children, one of whom tried to revive her with techniques he told police he had seen on TV.

The incident happened about 4 p.m. on May 28 at Waterford at Riverchase Apartments. The woman, Victoria Nacole Newman, survived the overdose and was jailed Friday after Hoover detectives obtained three warrants against her...

"This case is yet another example of the destruction being caused by the heroin epidemic. This innocent 6-year-old boy was clearly the most responsible person present at this residence,'' Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector said. "He did everything he knew to do to try and help a family member that he cared about very much. But what if he or the 2-year-old had accidentally ingested the heroin or cocaine? What if he accidentally stuck himself with a syringe? What if something terrible happened to him when he left the apartment to find help? "

Dallas butt injections death ruled a homicide | @dallasnews http://share.d-news.co/GNFqRiH

Quote
The death of a woman who received black-market silicone buttocks injections in Deep Ellum was ruled a homicide, the Dallas County medical examiner’s office said Monday.

Wykesha Reid, 34, a nursing home employee, died of pulmonary embolization of silicone, stemming from the illegal cosmetic surgery, the office said.

Denise “Wee Wee” Ross, 43, and Jimmy “Alicia” Clarke, 31, are charged with practicing medicine without a license in a separate case, in which a woman told police she suffered pain and psychological trauma after they injected her buttocks.

Police say Ross and Clarke ran an illegal buttocks-enhancing operation out of a salon in the 3800 block of East Side Avenue. That’s where Reid got butt injections three times and died on the fourth time, according to her family.

They should have made the inmate that ordered that huge meal.....to eat the whole order that was listed. Probably wouldn't have had to execute him.  He would have been dead within 12 hours.

Pay your way out of trouble at @Bonnaroo? Not this year. New DA ditches old policy: http://tnne.ws/1MkRotZ  via @tennessean #bonnaroo2015

Quote
Coffee County District Attorney Craig Northcott said he will not continue his predecessor's policy of allowing festival goers to pay inflated fines and avoid appearing in court on minor citations.

"Justice isn't for sale," said Northcott...

The problem, according to an example from Northcott: A person arrested the day before Bonnaroo on a minor drug possession charge could get five days in jail and year of probation. "A guy arrested at Bonnaroo the next day gets to pay $1,500 and gets out of it," he said.

"To me, it is not just to treat the same set of facts differently just because it happened at Bonnaroo," Northcott said.

Hundreds of citations are issued during Bonnaroo each year, according to Coffee County court officials and media reports.

Coffee County General Sessions court fines, taxes and fees collected from Bonnaroo-related arrests and citations, based on the court clerk's by-hand review:

2013: $630,274.75

2014: $489,800.25

Interesting freedom of the press issue here: Judge says reporter who tweeted despite order should write story: http://www.nwaonline.com/news/2015/jun/10/kfsm-s-henry-admits-to-tweeting-during- …

Quote
SPRINGDALE -- Larry Henry, managing editor for TV station KFSM, admitted in court Monday he violated a judge's order by tweeting the verdict of a recent murder trial from the courtroom.

Circuit Judge Brad Karren found Henry in contempt of court for tweeting "BREAKING Zachary Holly guilty of capital murder in 6-year-old Jersey Bridgeman's death" moments after the verdict was read May 20...

The bailiff said he and the judge discussed possible sentences for a guilty plea and Karren came up with the idea of a news story in lieu of a fine or jail time.

"He thought a story could promote awareness of child safety and it was a good way to handle it," Monjure said.

Henry has 30 days to air the story. A status hearing is set for July 16.

Springdale attorney Joel Huggins represents Henry and when reached Tuesday asked for time to speak with his client before commenting on the case. He didn't return that call or another left at 4 p.m. Calls late Tuesday afternoon to Henry and Van Comer, KFSM general manager, were also not returned...

"A Piece of Burger" viral video star is in police custody (http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/29297075/a-piece-of-burger-viral-video-star-wanted-for-local-crimes)

Quote
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - The man, who just yesterday became the Internet's newest viral star, is now in police custody.

He went to the Ridgeland Police Department Thursday afternoon to answer to a contempt of court charge for more than $1,600 worth of fines.

He was then picked up by Jackson Police for two outstanding misdemeanor theft warrants. He's accused of stealing merchandise from Swell-O-Phonic in Fondren and Walmart.

We spoke with a manager at Swell-O-Phonic who says that Barnes stole a Van's bucket hat just over a month ago. She also says he has been known for shoplifting in the area.

On Monday, Barnes was on his way to get "a piece of… um, burger from Burger King" when he claims to have witnessed a crash involving a police officer.

His excited account of the accident went viral Wednesday

According to him, he was on his way to get "a piece of… um, burger from Burger King" when the crash happened.

"What I had seen was a horrible, tragic situation," he said. "The guy was coming down, and I guess the police were trying to do a stop-point. The man said, 'No, not today!' And they began to race behind each other like cats and dogs.

"The police officer got behind the man and started going so fast that his car spinned out of control. Girl, he hit the pole. His head went to one side and his body went to the other side, and this is the result. Lord, be with his young man; he needs a blessing!"

The Washington Post called it the interview of the year.

LIMESTONE COUNTY, Alabama - A 35-year-old woman is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy who was in her class when she was a substitute teacher at Clements High School.

Karen Dyan Holt of Athens was charged with second-degree rape, second-degree sodomy and second-degree sex abuse. She is being held in Limestone County Jail on $40,000 bond, according to Sheriff Mike Blakely.

The parents called after finding communication between their son and Holt on Facebook, Blakely said. They also said she came to their neighborhood Tuesday night to see their son.

"She drove to his neighborhood and met him behind one of the neighbor's houses," he said "No one home at the time."

Despite wife's testimony in husband's defense, St. Tammany jury convicts him of beating her (http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2015/06/despite_wifes_testimony_in_hus.html)

Quote
Over the protests and testimony of his wife, a St. Tammany Parish jury convicted a man Thursday of beating her. The man now faces up to five years in prison, according to the St. Tammany Parish District Attorney's Office.

The case began in the early morning hours of March 9, 2014, when Slidell Police Department officers responded to calls about a loud fight in a motel room. The anonymous caller said there had been cries of "stop hitting me" and "get off of me."

At the scene, cops discovered a 35-year-old woman with a badly bruised face, who told officers her husband, who had fled, had been beating her. When she was taken to the hospital, X-rays revealed she had facial fractures around the eyes and nose, prosecutors said.

About a month later, after a warrant had been issued for 28-year-old Maurice Jackson, officers traced his car to another Slidell motel. When they knocked on the door this time around 3:30 a.m., the wife again answered and said her husband was not on the premises.

A skeptical Slidell Police Officer Thomas McNulty said he would take a look around anyway and found Jackson hiding in the bathroom. He was arrested and charged.

The wife later pleaded with District Attorney Warren Montgomery to drop the charges against Jackson. In a last ditch effort to save her abusive husband, she took the stand in his defense.

Under oath, she claimed she had been drinking and made a mistake. It wasn't Jackson who beat her, she testified, but three women in a nightclub.

Assistant District Attorney William Macke asked jurors to look beyond the woman's current stance. She was clearly the victim of domestic violence, a dangerous situation likely to be repeated, he argued.

"This is an intervention," Macke said. "(The victim) may not realize she's a victim. She may not feel like she's a victim. This is your chance to save her from herself."

The jury agreed.

Troy redshirt freshman offensive lineman Corey McCullers was killed in a car accident Saturday afternoon (http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/06/21/troy-offensive-lineman-corey-mccullers-killed-in-car-accident)

Quote
“This is a terrible tragedy and our hearts hurt for the McCullers family,” Troy Athletic Director John Hartwell said in a released statement. “We are reminded every day how precious life is, and the thoughts and prayers of the Troy University Family are with his family, friends and teammates as they mourn the beautiful life that Corey lived.”

“The Troy Football Family is heartbroken today over the sudden loss of Corey McCullers,” Troy football head coach Neal Brown said. “There is no greater tragedy than losing a young man with a bright future far too soon. Corey was a true Trojan who loved Troy University and his teammates. Our staff and players will always remember Corey’s work ethic and his positive attitude. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.”

McCullers was involved in a multi-vehicle accident Saturday afternoon that is currently still under investigation by Alabama State Troopers just a few miles from Troy. His car reportedly hit another vehicle before colliding with a parked travel trailer on the side of the road with a flat tire. Police ruled him dead upon arriving on the scene. Three others in the other vehicle were being treated for injuries at a nearby hospital.

    Update (7:54 p.m.): Tallahassee police sent us a copy of the incident report and it says pretty much nothing. Citing the state law that allows agencies to redact “active criminal intelligence information and active criminal investigative information,” Tallahassee police have redacted everything except the approximate time of what happened, the location, and the name and contact information for the victim. Not even one sentence of the narrative was left in the report.

The woman, 29-year-old Larhonda Roshae Malone, told officers she was looking at Snapchat on her phone when her boyfriend, 31-year-old Cory Terrell Troupe, got angry at her for looking at another man's post. She said he smacked the phone out of her hand, slammed her into the stairs then "choked her until she could not breathe."

Malone told police Troupe let her go and began packing his things. She said she then started "talking smack" to him, and he responded by pushing her into the head board and punching her in the jaw in front of her 10-year-old son. The child told police he saw Troupe take her keys, but Malone said she didn't see this.

When Troupe left, Malone said she got a Ruger .380-caliber pistol and chased him out to the driveway. She said she fired one round at him and his 11-year-old son but missed. Troupe and his son fled the area. Dispatch advised responding officers that Malone was chasing him down the street threatening to kill him, according to the criminal complaint. She then reportedly went back inside and put the gun on a table.

There was physical evidence at the scene, according to the police report. Police say Malone had marks on her neck that indicated choke marks. She also had marks on her arms and right jaw. Officers also recovered a Ruger firearm and a .380 bullet casing.

Police say Malone admitted shooting at Troupe and his son. She was arrested at the scene and charged with third-degree domestic violence (reckless endangerment), a misdemeanor. She was also given an ordinance ticket for firing a gun inside city limits.

A warrant was issued for Troupe for a felony charge of domestic violence by strangulation. Police caught Troupe Sunday night and took him to the Limestone County Jail.

Former Alabama football player charged in home invasion, police say suspects had an assault rifle http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2015/07/former_alabama_football_player_1.html …

Former Alabama defensive tackle Brandon Ivory was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly invading and burglarizing a home in Tuscaloosa.

Sgt. Brent Blankley, a Tuscaloosa Police Department spokesman, said police were called to a house on 17th Avenue around 8 a.m. Wednesday morning to respond to a burglary in progress.

Two residents were inside, but the suspects had already left. Blankley said one of the victims had been assaulted.

Police believe the two alleged burglars kicked in the back door and robbed the residents of cash and electronics.

Ivory was a starting defensive tackle for the Crimson Tide who joined as a redshirt freshman in 2010 and started every game in 2013. He signed to play with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in May.

Ivory and the other man, 21-year-old Nicholas Gerald Gibson III, were both placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail pending payment of bonds set at $120,000 each.

UPDATE: Firefighters letting flames burn toxic chemical after Blount County train derailment. http://bit.ly/1KuUHQw 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CI6gUFqVEAAydfj.jpg)

Quote
The train that derailed Thursday morning and caused the evacuation of homes in Blount County was hauling 24,000 gallons of a toxic chemical, authorities said.

Authorities on Thursday morning issued a request across the region for specialized medical kits to treat cyanide poisoning that results from exposure to the fumes emitted from the burning of the toxic chemical in the ruptured train tank car in Blount County.

“Our dispatch got a call about 7 a.m. asking about the cyanokits,” said Chattanooga Fire Department Tactical Services Chief Danny Hague. “We gave four of them to the Tennessee Highway Patrol about 7:45 a.m. to take up there.”

Ten law enforcement officers were being held at Blount Memorial Hospital after being decontaminated and treated with oxygen because of exposure to the chemical fumes.

Cyanide is a byproduct of burning Acrylonitrile. A tanker car containing the toxic, flammable substance used in the manufacture of plastics, has been burning since midnight in Blount County west of Maryville. Firefighters opted to let the flames burn off the chemical rather than risk exposure by getting too close to attempt to extinguish the fire...

An attempted robbery was thwarted by a local TV reporter just after midnight Friday.

Police confirmed to AL.com that Vincent Crivelli, a reporter with 48 WAFF, stopped an attempted robbery in the Kroger parking lot on Oakwood Avenue. (http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2015/07/tv_reporter_stops_robbery_hold.html)

Quote
Lt. Darryl Lawson with the Huntsville Police Department said Misty Suwarow, a Kroger manager, was walking to her car when Leonard Grey, 59, approached her and asked for money. Suwarow, who was in her car, refused and Grey opened the door and jumped on top of her.

Crivelli told AL.com he was at the Kroger to buy strawberries and apples after work when he heard a honking car horn and a woman screaming. He thought it was a domestic dispute until he got closer.

"It didn't look like it was a domestic dispute," Crivelli said. "It looked like it was much more, and she was screaming for help."

Crivelli said he pulled Grey out of the car by putting him into a headlock and held him down until the police arrived approximately 10 minutes later.

When the police pulled up, Crivelli said, Grey reached for something in his pocket.

"For the first time in the whole incident, I was scared," Crivelli said. "'He's got a knife. He's got a knife,' That's what I was thinking."

Grey pulled out something from his pocket, but that's when police intervened and arrested Grey, Crivelli said.

Police at the scene told Crivelli the item was a crack pipe.

While Crivelli was holding Grey someone recognized him asked him if he was on television.

"Yeah, Channel 48 News, we investigate," Crivelli said in reply.

Former Tennessee football player found slain in Alabama punted cat to death on Christmas Eve 2013

It was not immediately clear if he was killed in Tennessee or Alabama.  (http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2015/07/former_tennessee_football_play.html)

Quote
Dejion Marquel "D.J." Roberson, 21, of South Pittsburg was found dead around 3 a.m. June 27 on County Road 208 in Bridgeport. His cause of death has not been publicly released. Roberson was charged in December 2013 with aggravated animal cruelty after he picked up a cat by the neck on Christmas Eve and kicked it like a football in front of a neighbor, WVLT-TV out of Knoxville reported. The cat flew into the air and struck a power line before landing on the ground below. It died a few minutes later.

The neighbor, Kristen Williams, saw the entire episode from across the street and tried to save the kitten.

Roberson's uncle allegedly told police that the cat had run into their home and attacked a child inside, but investigators found no evidence to back that claim. Roberson fled the neighborhood, but was arrested five days later.

Investigation Discovery's Crimefeed reported that Roberson received probation on the animal cruelty charge.

He was arrested again in June 2014 and accused of aggravated burglary after going to an apartment building in Athens, Tenn., knocking on an apartment door and asking for a person who was not there. The Daily Post-Athenian reported that when the resident told Roberson he didn't know the man he was looking for, Roberson allegedly pushed his way in and began beating the man.

The man escaped after a brief struggle and called his father, the newspaper reported. When the father arrived, Roberson allegedly started another fight. He fled before police arrived, but was arrested the next day.

Roberson was a star football player for South Pittsburg High School, where he was an offensive lineman. At 6 feet, 5 inches and 315 pounds, he was recruited by both Middle Tennessee and UTC.

The newspaper had nominated him as one of its "Dynamite Dozen" high school players in 2011.

He ultimately signed with College of the Sequoias, a junior college in California.

Surveillance footage of Florida State freshman quarterback De'Andre Johnson punching a female student in the face at a bar last month was released by the State Attorney's Office in Tallahassee, Florida on Monday.

Johnson, 19, faces a misdemeanor battery charge for the incident and is currently suspended from the football team indefinitely.

In the video [available at link], Johnson enters the bottom of the screen in the center and is seen wearing a hat. The 21-year-old female FSU student swings on the quarterback, who responds with a punch of his own.

With the Seminoles looking to replace Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and No. 1 overall NFL draft pick Jameis Winston this offseason, Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson and junior Sean Maguire are expected to battle for the open job during fall camp.

#BreakingNews: Family kidnapped at gunpoint from West Knox home, cable worker says. Story: http://bit.ly/1JRMxAx 

Quote
KNOXVILLE — A woman, her husband and their infant son were kidnapped at gunpoint Tuesday morning from their Knoxville home by a group that forced the man to withdraw money from the West Knox County bank where he worked, authorities said.

“The employee was forced to remove an undisclosed amount of money from the bank,” FBI spokeswoman Joyce McCants said. “All the hostages were released unharmed.”

McCants said she was unsure whether the employee withdrew his money or the bank’s money.

Authorities learned of the scheme about 9:30 a.m. when the wife, who had their son with her, flagged down workers at Keystone Center 1, 123 Fox Road, near Interstate 140.

Troy Smith, 45, of Raleigh, N.C., was supervising a group of contract workers laying cable for Comcast when he heard the woman blaring the horn on the silver Mazda 6 she was driving.

The distraught woman explained she had been kidnapped, Smith said, and asked to borrow a cellphone to call E-911.

Bull chases down burglary suspect in north Alabama  (http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2015/07/bull_chases_down_burglary_susp.html)

Quote
Marshall County Sheriff Scott Walls said an Arab man caught a man and woman burglarizing his home Wednesday morning. The homeowner called the sheriff's office then chased them off his property. County deputies and Arab police officers found the suspects' Chevrolet truck shortly after.

Deputies say the suspects led them on a pursuit until they crashed on Pea Ridge Circle in the Union Grove area. They both fled on foot.

The driver, 26-year-old Brad Lynn Hemby, fled across a cow pasture and grabbed the attention of a bull that was roaming the field. The sheriff's office reports that the bull gave chase along with deputies. They said Hemby tried to elude the bull but fell into a barbed wire fence and immediately surrendered to deputies.

Hemby was arrested and charged with burglary, criminal mischief and attempting to elude a police officer.

By 1981, a phenomenal  high school football player named Marcus Dupree had emerged at Philadelphia High School and united the community as he thrilled crowds and eventually broke Hershel Walker's record for touchdowns.

Many say as white and black people sat in the same stands, cheering on the 6-foot-3, 230 pound Dupree, the healing of old wounds began and the outside world began to see Philadelphia in a different light.

Those who saw him play described Dupree as the best there ever was. (http://neshobademocrat.com/main.asp?SectionID=2&SubSectionID=297&ArticleID=22341)

Quote
"You knew when he got the ball that something special was going to happen," said Cecil Price Jr., who played wide receiver at the time. "He was a joy to watch and a great teammate."

Price explained in the documentary how his late father loved and adored Dupree and went out of his way to help him obtain his commercial driver's license after Dupree's professional football career ended.

The senior Price, as a Neshoba County deputy sheriff, was implicated in the 1964 murders and served time in prison for violating the civil rights of the young men. The senior Price, just before his death in 2001, assisted prosecutors who later brought state murder charges in that case and convicted a man.

Authorities are searching for a person of interest in the death of a Harpersville man whose burned body was found in Leeds earlier this week.

Candie Zito, 30, is sought for questioning, Leeds police Chief Byron Jackson announced this afternoon. He didn't specify why she is wanted as a person of interest.

The chief said Zito may be in the Adamsville or East Lake areas driving a small white car with no license plate.

Anthony Shane Gibson, 22, was last seen alive July 2 when he left his home about 8 p.m. that Thursday night, telling family he was going to a nearby store. He never returned.

He left in his grandmother's car, a white 1998 Ford Escort. The vehicle has a rear bumper sticker that reads "My Child Shines at Oliver Elementary."

Gibson's body was found Sunday night. Leeds police got the call at 6 p.m. after someone made the gruesome discovery. Police responded to the wooded area, which is three-quarters of a mile off of Markeeta Road in Jefferson County.

Gibson's body was burned beyond recognition.

Barnett was the wife of Buster Barnett, a tight end drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 1981.

According to the report, Brown had kidnapped Barnett Wednesday after learning the married couple had planned to go on a trip that she didn't know about.

A man crashed a car into a power pole Monday morning in south Nashville knocking out power to hundreds of residents in the area after a litter of kittens inside the vehicle reportedly distracted him, authorities said.

Officers responded at 12:30 a.m. to 13934 Old Hickory Boulevard for a report of a solo-vehicle crash near Cane Ridge Free Will Baptist Church...

The man reportedly told police he had a litter of kittens in the car and that one of the tiny feline's distracted him and caused him to slam into the power pole, partially knocking it over.

Emergency crews transported the man to a hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said.

None of the kittens were injured in the wreck.

About 400 people lost power due to the crash...

Nashville man guilty in abuse of boy from his church http://tnne.ws/1Sl6pmY  via @tennessean #nashville #crime #childabuse

Quote
A Nashville man will face eight to 12 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of sexual battery involving an 11-year-old boy he knew through his church.

Evidence showed Jose Alvarado, 46, abused the boy at the church the two attended...

The boy's mother suspected the abuse and was encouraged by her pastor and pediatrician to call police...

Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Hennig: “These type of crimes need to be reported because people who do this sort of thing are likely to re-offend until someone comes forward. The victim in this case recognized that by being brave and testifying he was helping to protect other children.”

"We don’t want to release the name of the church because it is a very small church and we are concerned the victim will be identified," office spokeswoman Dorinda Carter said...

Bullitt County man arrested for shooting down a drone that was flying above his house. http://bit.ly/1ILzAet

Quote
A Hillview man was arrested on Sunday after he gunned down a drone with a Number 8 birdshot that was hovering over his property.

William Meredith: “It was hovering, I would never have shot it if it was flying. When he came down with a video camera right over my back deck, that’s not going to work. I know they’re neat little vehicles, but one of those uses shouldn’t be flying into people’s yards and videotaping.”

Moments after the drone went down, a car full of men approached Meredith’s home to confront him. He said one of them asked, “Are you the son of a bitch that shot my drone?”

Meredith, now wearing a 10mm glock on his hip, replied, “If you cross that sidewalk onto my property, there’s going to be another shooting.”

He was later arrested and charged with criminal mischief and wanton endangerment.

He has young daughters who were out on the back deck when it came by...

A 14-year-old boy who shot a 10-year-old in the chest in a Nashville hotel room early Saturday will remain in custody while the case is pending, a judge ruled Monday. (http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/crime/2015/08/03/10-year-old-boy-wounded-nashville-shooting/31082373)

Quote
The 14-year-old had a 22-caliber Heritage Rough Rider gun that he pointed at Boyd and then pulled the trigger, according to police spokesman Don Aaron. Aaron said the gun was in poor mechanical condition and had duct tape on the grip. Police are investigating where the teen got the weapon and are looking at the weapon's history.

Aaron said the boy and another 14-year-old boy in the hotel fled after the shooting. Police found the gun in some bushes nearby, Aaron said.

Police noted in a media release that there was an adult woman in the room at the time, but she did not see anything because she was taking a bath.

This is at least the fourth shooting this year to wound or kill a child in Nashville.

I never snuck into the basement of a popular bar to attempt to burn it down to the ground.

Richard Johnstone, however, cannot say the same. He was arrested over the weekend after firefighters caught him in the basement of Henry Clay’s Public House, trying to torch the place. The report from WKYT says he was “igniting flammable materials” and was spotted hiding behind a cooler before attempting to flee the scene.

Police arrested Johnstone after helping out the firefighters and they found 19 credit cards in his possession. So he picked up another charge, receiving stolen credit cards, to go along with arson.

A University of Missouri professor and a research specialist, along with a researcher from SMU, recently were charged in rural southeastern Washington with taking artifacts from a national forest in 2013 without the proper permits. (http://www.columbiatribune.com/news/crime/mu-professor-researcher-charged-with-illegally-taking-artifacts/article_b1e9f490-68d2-52b1-886e-4d9ee79034d8.html)

Quote

“The artifacts were not just arrowheads, but also lithic debitage, the byproducts of tool making that a layperson would probably not immediately recognize, and are important contextually in an archeological and anthropological sense,” the charging document said.

An article the men wrote about the excursion that was cited in the investigation report says no excavation was done and that there was minimal collection of artifacts. The artifacts collected, the article said, were taken because they were visible and could be removed by people using the trails and camping areas in the wilderness.

MU spokesman Christian Basi said the university did not have much to say about the charges.

“We are aware of it,” Basi said, “but beyond that we can’t really discuss anything, especially related to any type of personnel action.”

“It’s a thorn in our side and completely unfounded,” SMU's Schmitt, 55, said. “I’m not going to make any comments.”

Narcotics agents arrested two people suspected of making methamphetamine after one threw an active meth lab at an officer.

Dewey Selven Coley Jr., 38, and Jennifer Roberts Taylor, 33, were arrested after the early morning bust at a residence in the 12000 block of Roberts Road in Coker.

Agents with the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force responded to the residence after receiving a complaint of drug activity, said Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Alex Miles.

The agents smelled chemicals used to make meth, he said. Coley attempted to run out of the back door of the home, Miles said, and threw some of the materials at agents.

Investigators recovered 75 grams of methamphetamine oil, methamphetamine pipes, syringes and other itmes (sic).

Coley was charged with trafficking meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, first-degree manufacturing a controlled substance and tampering with physical evidence. Bond was set at $211,000.

The suspect bought a movie ticket, asked for a cup of water and took a seat in the front left corner of the auditorium, police spokesman Don Aaron said. Police said two women in the theater said Montano was "staring them down" for several minutes and then stood up, put on a backpack and slung a duffel bag over his shoulder.

Montano then put the bags down and sat back down, police said. More people entered the auditorium, and police said Montano suddenly doused the two women with pepper spray. Police said Steven, a moviegoer who was with the women, stood up to intervene. That's when Steven, who declined to give his last name, was wounded by the hatchet, police said.

Four other people in the auditorium were uninjured, and escaped while Montano blocked another door.

“The credit really goes to Officer Frith,” Swoner said. “He took charge.”

Hillary's server probably took our enemies about 2 minutes.  Wonder if the Russians/Chinese will try to blackmail Bill....for all the stuff on Hillary's server?  Bet they have it all.....before she tried to wipe it.  Putin probably wants to get his share of all the millions that Bill has been making on those speeches. Putin can use the money to build some bombs.....then sell them for double price to the Iranians.  What a mess. ???

So....non-violent wanted criminals turn themselves in at this church?  Are the prayer meetings now going to be held at the police station?   

Says the wanted individuals will also be given a $10 MAPCO gift card, to help them pay for gas they used on the way to surrendering.  Says if they have a firearm that they want to turn in (extra's just lying around), they will get another $50 MAPCO gift card for that.  Sounds like Christmas.  Says if they turn a gun in, there will be no questions asked??  What if the gun is stolen....do they get another gift card for that?  Some of these people can make a lot of money.... just by surrendering.  Guess this is modern law enforcement.

Maybe the police have so many warrants, they just can't keep up with the demand.  Now they have to depend on many of the crooks, to turn themselves in.  If they keep passing all these gift cards out, it should certainly cut down on outstanding warrants.  At least until all the gift card money plays out....  ;)

Clifton Ryan Bone, who coaches the Donelson-Hermitage Warriors, was arrested Aug. 8 at his home in the 3200 block of Ironwood Drive in Nashville.

According to an arrest warrant, on the day of his arrest, detectives visited Bone's home to investigate a narcotics complaint and when they arrived at Bone's house, smelled "an obvious odor of marijuana" coming from the front door.

Bone allowed officers to search his home, the warrant states, and inside detectives found a set of digital scales and a marijuana grow operation that had 16 marijuana plants along with about 11 ounces of loose marijuana.

Also inside the defendant's bedroom, police said, officers found a loaded firearm.

Bone was arrested on charges including possession with intent to deliver and possession of a firearm with intent to deliver.

It was not immediately known if Bone had been fired by the Warriors, who operate under the umbrella of the Tennessee Youth Football Alliance.

No, those words are not another language. They’re actually the gender-neutral singular versions of pronouns.

University of Tennessee Office for Diversity and Inclusion is asking students and faculty to use the pronouns in order to create a more inclusive campus. They say it alleviates a heavy burden for people expressing different genders or identities.

For the first week of classes, Braquet is also asking teachers to ask everyone to provide their name and pronoun instead of calling roll. “The name a student uses may not be the one on the official roster, and the roster name may not be the same gender as the one the student now uses,” ze (sic) said.

Brentwood firefighter saves man gored by bison on California island --- and the bison have interesting roots there: http://tnne.ws/1UrZqo3

Quote
Walking up the Catalina trail, cresting the dusty terrain seemingly out of nowhere, a man approached.

He had a disoriented, almost crazy look to him, and Brentwood fireman Jay Williams — who that morning was beginning a three-day backpacking trip with two friends from California — really wasn't sure how to react.

"He looked straight out of the 'Walking Dead,' " Williams said...

"I need your help," the man responded. "I just got gored by a bison."

Well, Williams says, "You really don't hear that too often."

Or ever, really.

In his 15 years as a firefighter, Williams has witnessed myriad critical situations and assisted in saving many lives. But for the 40-year-old Williamson County dad, who has worked as an engineer paramedic for Brentwood Fire since 2009, "this is definitely a first, and probably a last," he says.

"Turn around," Williams said. "Let me take a look."

On Baker's back there was a significant gash near his right kidney. Williams said Baker had been applying pressure to his own wound.

Once the firefighters realized the significance of the situation, their training kicked in. They immediately called 911, with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office responding. The situation was so unusual, Williams said, that they had to repeat the details several times...

From court this morning: IRS agent faces child porn charges in Nashville http://tnne.ws/1ECpzOY  via @tennessean #crime

Quote
A Nashville Internal Revenue Service agent appeared in court Thursday on charges he had more than 1,000 images of child pornography.

Jeremiah Beaty, 37, was arrested Aug. 4. He is charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor of more than 100 items.

Nashville Police Detective Mike Adkins was investigating a file-sharing network that traced back to Beaty's computer in October, police said. Officers got a search warrant and seized a computer and two thumb drives, on which Detective Chad Gish found several thousand images of child porn...

Court documents say that while the charges are pending Beaty is not allowed to use the Internet, unless it is related to work and on the "IRS internet system."

Grammar and punctuation = so important. No comma? No investigative records, TN Attorney General says http://tnne.ws/1Uvm8M3  via @tennessean

Quote
A missing comma means city councils do not have power to subpoena investigative records of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, according to a recent opinion issued by the Tennessee Attorney General.

Grammar and punctuation gurus get ready.

According to Attorney General Herbert Slatery's Aug. 25 opinion, a city council cannot request the results of a TBI investigation because of a law that says those records should be released "only in compliance with a subpoena or an order of a court of record."

Slatery's opinion said because there is no comma separating "subpoena" and "order," both are antecedent to the phrase "of a court of record." Thus, "of a court of record" applies to both "subpoena" and "order." If there was a comma, the opinion said, then "of a court of record" would only apply to "order."

For the not-grammatically inclined: Only judges can order release of TBI records.

The decision keeps the already locked-down records locked down. But it comes amid growing concern among legislators about whether those records, especially when they are related to police using deadly force, should be subject to public review...

Never understood this part of our justice system.  If you murder someone (not self-defense/accident) are convicted, don't get the death penalty, & are sentenced to life....then it should be life.  Not 1/4 of your sentence, & then be eligible for parole.  How does 12-15 years of a 50 year life sentence for taking someone else's life....equal real justice?  If we would keep more of these violent prisoners in jail.....our crime rate would be reduced.  Too many repeat offenders on major crime.

Williams, who turned 26 today, is listed in critical condition in the Trauma and Burn Intensive Care Unit at UAB Hospital. Authorities said she is burned over 75 percent of her body.

Hoover police were dispatched at 2:34 a.m. to a wreck on private property at The Park at Galleria apartments, said Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector. A passerby had spotted the flames and called 911.

Williams and her husband, Chasten Williams, were returning to their apartment from another complex to which they were getting ready to move when Williams' car jumped a curb and struck a tree in the apartment complex and burst into flames. The car was fully engulfed when police and firefighters arrived on the scene, Rector said.

$1,200 bribe for silence on shooter's ID prompts federal charges; woman just pleaded guilty: http://tnne.ws/1ESNfyI  via @tennessean

Quote
A Nashville woman pleaded guilty last week to a charge of conspiring with another man to tamper with witnesses by trying to pay a witness to change his testimony, according to U.S. Attorney David Rivera.

Laquanda Boyce, 33, pleaded guilty to conspiring with Michael "Oso" Calloway, 20. They were indicted in May.

Boyce and Calloway assaulted a woman in the J.C. Napier housing development in April when a witness intervened and tried to protect the victim. Officials said Calloway later in the day saw the man who intervened. Calloway fired eight or nine shots at the witness, striking the man in the leg, officials said.

Facing looming firearms charges, Calloway and Boyce devised a scheme to pay the witness $1,200 in exchange for refusing to testify or for testifying that he had mistakenly identified Calloway as the shooter...

A man accused of killing a transgender woman in Nashville last year wrote on Facebook that guns solve his problems and posted a picture posing with a rifle, prosecutors said.

Those new details came to light Wednesday, when Mallory Porter appeared in court with his attorney, Mike Engle, to ask a judge to lower his bond, which is set at $150,000. Nashville Criminal Court Judge Cheryl Blackburn denied the request...

Nashville Police Detective Lindsay Farnow testified in court on Wednesday that police found Porter's DNA on evidence collected from the scene, including clothing and a towel in the front seat of Fowler's Buick, which was parked in the home's driveway. She also said DNA evidence was recovered from Fowler's body during a rape-kit test performed by the medical examiner.

The relationship between Fowler and Porter before the killing was unclear...

Someone was really angry at that mailbox. Like, I don’t think the person was even mad at the man, but that mailbox enraged them for some reason.

• A Lake Piomingo man said around 2 a.m., he heard noise outside. When he looked out, he saw a red four-wheeler and at least two people break his mailbox and pull up the steel post.

See?? Someone’s got it out for the mailboxes.

• A Skyline woman said her dog started barking at 2 a.m. and she wanted a deputy to come out and check her property.

Probably the mailbox vandals.

• A Brewer man said someone named James has been sending perverted texts

That time #Tennessee hired a convicted felon to feed poor kids, and the money disappeared: http://tnne.ws/1F2FCpv  @tennessean @anitawadhwani

Quote
Before they moved to Tennessee to land a contract with the Department of Human Services to serve food to poor kids, the mother-son operators of Kingdom Dominion Worldwide Ministries had already racked up a string of fraud and criminal complaints.

Jeannette Nealy and her son, DeMario Jives, were arrested in Florida and charged with stealing $200,000 from a school voucher program for low-income kids with disabilities in 2004. The family used the money, among other things, to purchase a Lexus and a Hummer...

Now, Nealy and Jives are the subject of an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for getting paid thousands of dollars for meals that never made it to children in Shelby County, where more than 1 in 3 children live in poverty.

The Shelby County District Attorney’s office is weighing charges against the two on allegations they pocketed as much as $160,000 intended to feed meals and snacks to children living in poverty...

• A Purnell Road resident reported someone damaged their garbage can. The woman said her dog started barking after midnight. She looked outside and saw three males standing around her garbage can, which was on fire. She put out the fire but needed a police report to get a new can from Waste Management.

Garbage can fires are normally part of the urban inner-city landscape. Tupelo’s becoming quite cosmopolitan.

• A truck driver hauling a bulldozer on a trailer north on North Gloster said a southbound Ford pickup veered into his lane and hit the dozer around 7:30 a.m. The truck had damage on the driver’s side front fender. The truck driver pulled over into a parking lot to exchange information with the other driver, but the pickup kept traveling south and never stopped.

Wonder if the pickup driver … dozed off.

Mom of Children Found in Kansas City Cave Finally Released From Jail (http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/mom-children-found-kansas-city-cave-appears-court-33778933)

Quote
A woman whose two young sons were found inside an underground cave in Kansas City was released from jail Tuesday but won't be allowed to see her children without prior authorization, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Brittany Mugrauer, 24, was charged with two counts of felony child endangerment after her 4- and 6-year-old sons were found Friday in the cave, which housed a diesel repair shop. Jackson County authorities said the children were dirty, unsupervised and living in a wooden shipping crate inside the cave.

 Investigators were searching the caves — part of a massive subterranean network carved out beneath Kansas City — for a possible stolen car operation when they found the children. According to a probable cause statement, Mugrauer told investigators the children had been living in the cave for several days and she admitted she had left them alone. The children said they didn't have shoes and the 6-year-old told investigators he didn't go to school, according to the statement.

However, Sean Dale, the owner of the Underground Diesel shop, told The Associated Press the boys stayed with Mugrauer while she worked for him at the shop and that he provided the crate so they wouldn't "run amok." He said the children were supervised, well-cared for and used the crate as a "man cave" where they could play.

"They have it as if it was a torture chamber and the crate was stuck in the deepest, darkest place," Dale said. "It's a well-lit playhouse in a pretty well-kept shop."

(WKYT) - A Laurel County man is accused of standing outside a woman's bedroom window and watching her get dressed after she took a bath.

From George Foreman on another Kentucky native, Muhammad Ali and his head games with Joe Frazier:

Quote
Joe told me why he had that hate for Ali. Muhammad was calling him an Uncle Tom. Kids would go to school and taunt his children, and they'd come home and his wife would hear about it. What bothered Joe was that every morning he'd get up really early, when it was dark, to get the roadwork in. He always wore this big hood over his head when he ran. And he said, "Man, I don't want my wife thinking I'm peeping into people's windows." The point is, at the time, Joe didn't get what an Uncle Tom was. He hated Muhammad because he thought Ali was calling him a Peepin' Tom. If someone would have explained to Joe what an Uncle Tom was, he might not have ever hated Ali.

Police Reports 9.17.15: Bad customer relations http://tipsheet.djournal.com/2015/09/17/police-reports-9-17-15-bad-customer-relations/ …

Quote
The thing about these police reports is you often get only one side of a story. But today, we get both sides of a conflict involving a washer and a dryer, and somebody threatened someone, but who did what depends on who you believe...

• A Pontotoc woman said she went to a County Road 885 Saltillo address to return a washer and dryer she bought the day before. When she approached the house, the seller told her to get off the property or she would cut her.

Toughest return policy ever.

• A County Road 885 woman said a couple showed up to return a washer and dryer they bought from her son more than three months ago. She told them if they left the items, she would have them fixed. She said that when the female suspect began yelling, cursing and threatening her, she told them to leave her property.

This would appear to be the other side of the story. Note the time discrepancy in regards to when the washer and dryer were purchased, and now it’s the buyer who’s allegedly being aggressive. Someone’s lying through their tooth.

• An Auburn man reported his ex-girlfriend has been repeatedly calling and texting threats to him. She even showed up at his workplace to harass him.

Wish we had the other side of this story...

Quote
a resident noticed a strange pickup truck back into his neighbor's driveway, police said, then appear to try and steal a utility trailer.

"..he quickly drove his own pickup truck to the scene and blocked the thieves’ escape path," police said in a statement." The neighbor detained one of the suspects at gunpoint while two others, a man and a woman fled. When the guy who fled turned around and started to come back with his hands around his waist, the neighbor fired a warning shot in the air, causing that man to turn around and resume running."

Hermitage Precinct officers arrived shortly and found Marty Ray Harris, 40, of Fairview, being held at gunpoint by the neighbor.

Police said Harris admitted to detectives that he and his accomplices intended on stealing and selling the utility trailer to support a heroin habit.

When the first escapee, Matthew Johnson, got about halfway down his four-story climb, the sheets came loose and he fell 20 feet to the ground, injuring his ankles and back. He was the found the next morning hiding in a car and taken to the hospital.

The other inmate, Christopher "Cross" Cornelius, was left stranded on the roof holding onto a pile of bed sheets.

Perhaps quoting "Half Baked," Nashville man hurls F-bombs at judge, others after guilty verdict: http://tnne.ws/1KQ9g0K  @tennessean

Quote
Prosecutors said Jacob Scott Hughes went into a ballistic rage in 2012, so upset at a friend and his girlfriend that Hughes beat his girlfriend's 17-month-old daughter so severely she died the next day...

A jury on Thursday found Hughes guilty of all four charges against him.

And then Hughes showed the rage that prosecutors said killed Eloise.

"Just leave. Just go," Hughes said, waving for his sobbing mother, father and sister to leave Judge Mark Fishburn's courtroom. Hughes cursed at a court officer. He asked what anybody could do to him since he's facing a life sentence for the murder conviction.

Fishburn said the outburst would be taken into account at a sentencing hearing.

Hughes then launched into an onslaught of expletives. He pointed at the judge and prosecutors and other court staffers...

Costanza was also charged in the case.

Anybody that beats a 17 month old baby to death, doesn't deserve to live out a life sentence.  Firing squad is the answer on this one.  Save the state money for keeping him imprisoned for 30-40 years.  He ain't worth it.
is to good for him.

A bullet is too good for him.  Slow torture is what he deserves.

Man gets 44 years for shooting wife http://tnne.ws/1LiIakk  via @tennessean @AndyHumbles #nashville #samsclub #crime

Quote
Johnny Malcom Vinson, 64, shot his estranged wife outside a Sam’s Club on Antioch Pike in January 2014, culminating several instances of domestic abuse, according to testimony, was effectively sentenced to a combined 44 years in prison Wednesday.

Vinson was also convicted of aggravated assault in April for using a taser in a separate incident involving Pack in December 2013.

By law, the 34-year sentence is consecutive to the 10-year sentence on the 2013 aggravated assault case because Vinson was out on bail on that case at the time of the shooting, which pushes the total sentence imposed to 44 years.

It was when the meeting ended that tensions ran high.

Former @ESPN host @ErinAndrews seeks $75M in #Nashville @Marriott hotel peeping case: http://tnne.ws/1RMCjEY  via @tennessean

Quote
Former ESPN personality Erin Andrews wants $75 million after a 2008 incident at a Nashville hotel where she says a stalker was given access to film her through a door peephole, new court documents say.

Andrews' attorneys filed a revised version of the lawsuit earlier this week in Davidson County Circuit Court. The previous lawsuit, filed in 2010 and amended in 2011, sought $10 million for similar claims.

In September, attorneys for the hotel asked Nashville Circuit Judge Hamilton Gayden to order Andrews to clarify past filings that include different amounts of money, and be more specific about how much she sought. Gayden agreed and ordered the new filing.

Andrews wants the $75 million sum from Marriott International, Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, Windsor Capital Group and David Barrett, the man who pleaded guilty to stalking her in 2009. The lawsuit accuses Marriott of negligence, infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.

Andrews accuses the hotel and others of negligently allowing Barrett, then 50, to book rooms next to hers, rig peepholes and film videos of her changing clothes.

A 10-day trial in the civil case is set to begin Feb. 22.

The incident occurred in 2008 when Andrews was in town covering a Vanderbilt University football game.

A woman looking for her dog was knocked unconscious and raped in Tarrant last week, police confirmed today.

The attack happened about 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, on Thomason Avenue in a neighborhood between Jackson Boulevard and Pinson Valley Parkway, Tarrant police Lt. Larry Rice said.

Police said the 25-year-old was outside looking for her missing dog. A black male approached her, hit her in the head with an undisclosed object and then raped her while she was knocked out. Rice described the attack as brutal, and said the woman was sexually and physically injured.

No arrests have yet been made in the case. Thursday's rape was the second in just one month in Tarrant.

On Sept. 9, a Tarrant family was held hostage at gunpoint and one of them sexually assaulted. The ordeal began about 2:45 p.m. that Wednesday when an 18-year-old girl was walking her two nieces home from school. Shortly after they arrived at the family's home on Linthicum Street, a gunman forced his way inside, Rice said. Investigators believe he may have followed them home. There were five people inside the home, and the assailant held the family hostage for more than an hour. During that time, the 18-year-old was raped.

"We've had a lack of citizens coming forward with information,'' he said. "We really need them to help us."

Two Nashville teachers were suspended Monday after police say they caught them exchanging $800 worth of heroin over the weekend in a north Gulch fast-food parking lot.

Joshua Taylor Johnson, 30, of Mt. Juliet, and Michael Clendening, 46, of Antioch, both instructors at Dupont Tyler Middle Prep, were each cited with misdemeanor heroin possession in connection to the Saturday afternoon transaction on Charlotte Pike, said police spokesman Don Aaron.

Clendening, who's been an employee with Metro Nashville schools since 2005, has taught art at Dupont since 2010, schools spokesman Joe Bass said Monday. Johnson, was hired by the district in 2009, and has taught gym at the school since 2012. He is also the school's football and wrestling coach.

.@MNPDNashville detectives have collected phone records to fill gaps in East #Nashville double killing case: http://tnne.ws/1MkPVm4  #crime

Quote
Nashville police detectives are sifting through hundreds of pages of cellphone records as they work the case against two people they say killed an East Nashville couple in September.

Detectives got a search warrant directing AT&T and Sprint to turn over records for the phones belonging to Brandon Griswold and Whitney Gray. The warrants sought call histories, text messages and GPS locations for the two phones between Sept. 21 and 28.

The service providers turned over hundreds of pages of records last week, according to officials and court documents.

The records could help develop a timeline of where Griswold and Gray were in the six days after the killings and before they were arrested by police, and their actions in that time.

Police have accused Griswold, 20, and Gray, 21, of beating Preston Claybrooks and Alexandra Grubbs to death in unit A3 at Howe Garden Apartments, the apartment they shared on Greenwood Avenue. The bodies were found in a utility closet Sept. 27 after missing person reports were filed. Police said they think Claybrooks, 24, and Grubbs, 23, were killed on Sept. 21.

Detective Mike Roland testified in a hearing earlier this month that Griswold and Gray owed Claybrooks a $650 debt for heroin...

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A two-year-old girl in an Amber Alert search is safe thanks to a vigilant driver in Ohio.

Tyler Enix, 36, was arrested in Morrow County, Ohio, hours after he was added to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top 10 Most Wanted List. Morrow County Sheriff Steven R. Brenneman said Tyler Enix’s daughter, Brooklynne, is safe and with their county’s child services.

The Knoxville father was arrested, according to Brenneman, after an Ohio driver heard the Amber Alert on the radio and called law enforcement. He said the driver followed Tyler Enix as he pulled off the interstate and gave their department updates on his location.

Tyler Enix’s first run-in with the police was back in 2001 when he was arrested for stalking someone. That lead to harassment charges and several violations of an order of protection.

Three years later, Tyler Enix was charged with assault, then a month after that with domestic assault and false imprisonment.

The murder suspect was arrested in 2005 for writing worthless checks and then in 2010, he was arrested for harassment, aggravated assault and two counts of forgery.

Kimberly Enix had primary custody of Brookynne, getting her 285 days of the year. Tyler Enix had custody the other 80 days.

TUPELO – A Tupelo man is facing life behind bars after allegedly setting off an explosive at Walmart early Sunday morning.

Marshall W. Leonard, 61, of Tupelo, was arrested and will be charged placing an explosive device. Mississippi Code 97-37-25 carries up to life in prison if convicted.

Tupelo Police Chief Bart Aguirre said a vehicle pulled up to the night entrance of the North Gloster Walmart around 1:30 a.m.

“A white male got out, lit the package and threw it in the vestibule,” Aguirre said. “There was an employee on break, and the suspect told him, ‘You better run.’

“The employee did run and was away from harm when the package went off. It wasn’t a large explosion. It didn’t cause a lot of damage to the store.”

Last Wednesday, Leonard posted threats on the Daily Journal Facebook page.

“Journal corporate, you are on final warning,” he wrote Oct. 28. “You are part of the problem. As a result of this, y’all are going down, along with Walmart, WTVA, Reeds department store, and all the rest of the anti-American crooks. I’m not kidding. No messing around anymore!”

It was the state flag that led to his arrest. An officer in the area spotted a small silver car with a huge Mississippi flag sticking up through the sun roof run the red light in front of Walmart.

Accused killer of Auburn football player Jakell Mitchell to be arraigned, could remain in Lee County http://s.al.com/G3awuJb  via @aldotcom

Quote
Markale Hart, the man accused of fatally shooting Auburn football player Jakell Mitchell at an off-campus party, will be arraigned on murder charges next week.

At around midnight on Dec. 14, Auburn police found Mitchell in the backseat of a vehicle at the Tiger Lodge apartments suffering from approximately five gunshot wounds. He later died at East Alabama Medical Center.

Hart was quickly developed as a suspect and was arrested later that same morning.

According to testimony at Hart's preliminary hearing, Auburn police claim Mitchell got into an argument with Hart's friend, Tyrone Rowe, during the party.

In his statement to Auburn police investigators, Hart claimed he was trying to get Rowe to leave the party prior to the shooting. Hart said a man known as Big D handed him a gun.

Police say Mitchell exchanged gunfire with Hart at the party. Hart claims, though, that Mitchell fired the first shots.

Hart currently doesn't have an attorney.

An important part of Pascagoula High football history is gone.

Former Panther standouts Keith Joseph, Sr., and Keith Joseph, Jr., were killed in a one-vehicle automobile accident Friday on their way back to Jackson County to see the Pascagoula-Gautier football game. The accident happened in Greene County on Mississippi 57 near Leakesville, according to multiple reports.

According to a report by The Greene County Herald, the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado the duo were traveling in left the roadway and flipped multiple times. The accident happened on a long, straight stretch of the four-lane highway between Rounsaville Road and the intersection of Old Hwy. 57 in rural Greene County.

The newspaper also reported that it appeared the vehicle veered off the roadway briefly onto the grass median before coming back onto the highway, going into a roll as it crossed back over the southbound lanes before coming to a stop just inside the tree line off the state right of way. Both men were reportedly wearing their seatbelts, but the younger Joseph was ejected from the vehicle. Greene County Coroner Ladd Pulliam pronounced both men dead on the scene at approximately 3:30 p.m.


The elder Joseph was among a number of standouts at Pascagoula High School in the late 1980s that helped the Panthers to an unbeaten 14-0 season and a state championship along with future collegiate stars Shane Matthews and Terrell Buckley.

Louisiana State University student is accused of secretly photographing two 14-year-old girls as they were taking a shower in his residence hall.

Andrew Paul Easterly, 18, was arrested last week and charged with attempted production of child pornography and multiple counts of possession of child pornography, WAFB reported.

According to the report, Easterly met the girls at a party earlier this year, and he later invited them to the LSU vs. Auburn game on Sept. 19.

Both girls apparently lied to their parents about where they were going.

The girls reported drinking alcohol in Easterly's dorm room and then walking around campus and attending an off-campus party. They decided to shower before going to sleep in his dorm room.

They run a tight ship.

Tuscaloosa police are investigating after a video has surfaced of a team of officers cursing, Tasing and using a nightstick on at least one student during an arrest at an apartment early today.

Police were reportedly called to 12th Avenue Place Apartments on Frank Thomas Avenue about 3 a.m. on a noise complaint. What happened next is unclear, but multiple videos taken from both inside and outside of the apartment are making their way across social media.

The video shows an officer talking to those inside the apartment at the front door, and those inside refused to exit the apartment. The students questioned whether they were being arrested or detained, and whether the officers were within their rights to search the apartment.

One of the young men was taken outside the apartment and then hit with a Taser stun gun, and struck repeatedly with an officer's nightstick. Two young men and a young woman - all three students - were taken into custody.

"He will be represented," Amanda Wettstein, who has been Fall's guardian for the past two years, told ESPN. "This just isn't right."

Wettstein has been Fall's guardian since he arrived at Liberty Christian Preparatory School [Tavares, Florida] two years ago. She told ESPN that Liberty Christian, which has been in existence for 25 years, has been placed under an extended evaluation status by the NCAA for a minimum of two full academic certification cycles...

Fall grew up in Dakar, Senegal, and spent his freshman and sophomore years in his native country before arriving in the United States. He is currently an engineering major at UCF.

Nashville aircraft broker sues @IAmSteveHarvey over private jet, says the media do-it-all owes $200k http://tnne.ws/1NQRMo6  via @tennessean

Quote
Business Aircraft Leasing Inc. says in court papers that Harvey agreed to pay it $400,000 for customization of a Gulfstream jet that he “orally promised” to lease for $97,000 a month. The Nashville company hired a Florida company, Private Sky Aviation, to do the work. That included altering the plane from 16 to 14 seats and customizing the seat and interior design.

Harvey paid about half of that money before saying he did not want to lease the aircraft, according to the federal lawsuit. Business Aircraft Leasing is suing Harvey and One World Aviation — a company Harvey owns or operates, according to court paperwork — for the remaining $205,040 or more. The company asks that sum to be determined at trial.

The aircraft renovated for Harvey is listed on the company's website as available for lease.

Police arrested 44-year-old Walter McCrimmon Saturday because of illegal activity going on in Walt's Place, 3572 Commerce Street, owned by McCrimmon.

Investigators said Memphis Police Department Vice officers began investigating McCrimmon's club in July 2015.

During the investigation, undercover officers visited the club several times. Officers made approximately eight prostitution deals inside the club. Some of the prostitution deals came directly from McCrimmon, who set prices for customers to have sex with the employees.

McCrimmon is charged with promoting prostitution, storage of liquor for sale, unlawful sale of alcoholic beverages, and money laundering.

Officers said McCrimmon is a SCS school teacher who works at Raleigh-Egypt High School.

Shelby County Schools released the following statement:

"We are very concerned about the severity of these allegations. At this point, the teacher has been suspended without pay."

Don't miss this, about Wilson Co. judge ordering up haircuts for kids - a controversial practice. By @AndyHumbles. http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/wilson/2015/11/13/wilson-county-juvenile-judge-orders-up-haircuts/75657684/ …

Quote
Wilson County Judge Barry Tatum orders up haircuts.

Tatum periodically orders the haircuts for boys he feels have hair that's too long. The juvenile judge pays for the court-appointed haircuts himself, and they occur only with the consent of parents or guardians.

“My goal is to try and get a young person who has an encounter at home, community or school to realize the seriousness of the situation and consequences when people make mistakes and (for) bad behavior,” Tatum said in an interview. “A big part of that is respecting what their parents want … and I’ll say, 'I’ll be glad to buy you a haircut.’ ”

But the practice has sparked mixed opinions.

Local attorney Jerry Gonzalez questions "on what authority" Tatum has to send boys for haircuts. He also questions why just boys are sent to the barber.

Attorney Meggan Sullivan was in Tatum’s courtroom recently and said she witnessed an incident in which a boy was sent for a haircut.

Sullivan, who was not representing the boy, didn’t see parental consent and questioned how well the parent understood the legal system when the haircut was said to be required. Sullivan didn’t see that the boy had an attorney and felt he was made a spectacle by leaving with a deputy with people laughing in the courtroom.

“Judicial bullying is what it was,” Sullivan said. “That kid did not feel he had choice, and I didn’t feel like the dad did either. To me it seemed ordered.”

Tatum recalled the incident differently.

“I wouldn't put up with laughing in court," he said. "It’s a humbling experience to come to court and for a parent to say, 'I’ve lost control and need your help.' I take my oath seriously and my job is to help kids.”

Defense attorney Karen Casey, also president of the 15th Judicial District Bar Association, has represented multiple juvenile defendants whom Tatum has sent for haircuts. She said the haircuts have brought positive results...

Autopsies in East #Nashville double-killing reveal brutal deaths and drugs and details: http://tnne.ws/1NXtAAt

Quote
East Nashville couple brutally killed as they slept in their apartment earlier this year were high on a cocktail of drugs including heroin and were so badly beaten a medical examiner had to identify them by their tattoos, autopsy results show.

Detectives found the bodies of Preston Claybrooks Jr. and Alexandra Faith Grubbs bundled in bed sheets and blankets in an utility closet inside the apartment Sept. 27 after family members filed missing person reports, police said. Police believe Claybrooks, 24, and Grubbs, 23, were killed Sept. 21.

Police have accused Brandon Griswold, 20, and Whitney Gray, 21, of beating the couple to death in unit A3 at Howe Garden Apartments, the apartment they shared on Greenwood Avenue...

Their skulls were crushed in. Their throats slit. Their faces unrecognizable.

Both victims had to be identified by several of the unique tattoos that covered their bodies.

Neither victim put up a fight, as their respective autopsies found no defensive wounds on either of them.

Grubbs' autopsy revealed she suffered about a dozen multiple blunt and sharp force injuries mostly to the left side of the head and neck. Some of the cuts and stab wounds measured more than three inches long.

Saturday morning, a drunken Oklahoma Sooners fan who thought he was at the Waco Hilton but instead was found sleeping in the McLennan County Courthouse got to spend the rest of the day at the “Harwell Hilton,” deputies said.

Deputies responding to a burglar alarm at the courthouse about 8:15 a.m. Saturday found Harold Anthony Schroeder, 35, of Oklahoma City, curled up between the counsel rail and the first-row seats in the 54th State District Courtroom.

Wearing a crimson Oklahoma Sooners shirt, a groggy Schroeder sat on a bench in the courthouse rotunda and tried to explain to deputies that he thought he was at the Hilton.

Deputies noted in reports that Schroeder smelled strongly of alcohol.

Tennessee deviated a bit below the norm for IQ and the college grad rates and much more so for ACT scores. But the state rated above the norm for SAT scores, pushing Tennessee to a near-middle-of-the-pack spot at No. 33, one spot below No. 32 Indiana and one spot above No. 34 California.

As usual with such surveys, the South was the lowest-ranking region. Virginia was tops in the South at No. 13, followed by Oklahoma (No. 30), Kentucky (No. 31), Tennessee (No. 33), Arkansas (No. 36), Georgia (No. 38), Texas (No. 39), North Carolina (No. 42), Louisiana (No. 43), West Virginia (No. 44), South Carolina (No. 45), Florida (No. 46), Alabama (No. 47) and Mississippi (No. 48).

Forget the Turducken -- the trash can turkey is where it's at (and it frees up the oven) http://ow.ly/URP7X

Quote
Trash can turkey will definitely mess up your lawn (or whatever other surface you choose to cook it on.) It requires putting burning-hot coals that literally hit more than 1,000 degrees Farenheit directly onto your grass or patio with nothing but a thin layer of tin foil. When we made it, it left a charcoal-black ring of charred grass about eight feet across that will likely take a year or few to recover.

The meat is also not your traditional Thanksgiving turkey. If you have picky kids, siblings or grandparents, you may end up ticking them off if you cook them trash can turkey. While the smoky flavor is a plus for even the slightly adventurous, it will likely turn off people who simply want the traditional (aka boring) roast beast they are used to.

And you will need to shell out a few bucks for an appropriate trash can or barrel, a big roll of aluminum foil and about 40 pounds of charcoal...

When the Gamecocks defeated Central Florida 31-14, it dropped the Golden Knights to 0-4 and sparked an unusual promotion at The Basement. The bar began offering free beers during UCF football games until the team notched a win.

That 0-4 start turned into a 0-12 finish, which translated to about 15,000 free beers given away, according to Fox 35 Orlando.

“We started off 0-4, which nobody really expected, especially after a couple of easy games in the beginning of the season,” explained The Basement [former?] marketing director Jake Whitacre.

LMPD officers were called to the 100 block of Blue Fields Road on Saturday after the football game. That's where Conner Karem "became violent after a brief discussion regarding salad," according to his arrest report.

After Karem punched his grandfather in the face and nose, he "proceeded to repeatedly punch his grandmother, even after she fell to the floor," the report said.

Karem suffers from seasonal depression...

A routine safety check on charter buses carrying 56 Nashville high school students to a state championship football game led to the arrest of a driver who was caught with a bottle of vodka on board, court documents released Monday show.

As an officer started to inspect a second bus, he said the driver,  identified as Hoskinson, had red, watery eyes and a strong odor of alcohol. After receiving permission, the officer searched Hoskinson's bag and found a half-empty bottle of vodka, the affidavit states.

The officer said he also found a water bottle with a mixture of water and vodka on the bus.

The Navy announced Monday that it has reprimanded a two-star admiral for getting drunk and wandering naked around a Florida beachfront hotel while attending a conference with defense contractors.

Rear Adm. David F. Baucom, the director of strategy and policy at the U.S. Transportation Command, became so intoxicated at an upscale beachfront resort in April that he struck his head on a barstool, wet his pants and needed an escort back to his room, according to an investigative report by the Naval Inspector General.

A few hours later, still in a haze, Baucom re-emerged from his room without any clothes on — as his door automatically locked behind him

Quote
Crude jokes about the appearance of employees, unequal treatment of women and demeaning behavior toward officers were the allegations upheld in an internal investigation of Gainesville Police Capt. Brian Helmerson, who retired Tuesday rather than be fired.

Among those making the allegations were four female lieutenants, including Lt. Tscharna Senn, who told the investigator of sexual harassment that went on for years. It included ongoing rude comments about her body.

On multiple occasions, Helmerson grabbed her cellphone to scroll through pictures. One time, when she asked him to give it back, “he put the phone between his legs in his crotch area, and told her, ‘If you want it, come get it,’’’ the report states.

Judge says man is delusional in belief he's innocent in Nashville infant's abuse death: http://tnne.ws/1Y86tnT 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CWCrG_8U8AA8rYB.jpg)

Quote
Jacob Hughes is on a downward spiral when it comes to being able to control his behavior, a Nashville judge said Friday just minutes before sentencing Hughes to serve life in prison.

It was Hughes' anger that led him to kill his girlfriend's 1-year-old daughter, Eloise Costanza, one summer afternoon in 2012, prosecutors argued during Hughes' October trial.

Hughes was found guilty of two counts of felony murder, which Tennessee law says is punishable by life in prison. Judge Mark Fishburn tacked on an additional 25-year sentence for other convictions, citing the downward spiral he said makes Hughes a public danger.

And he said he hoped he never sees a case like this again.

"If there is something more aggravated than that, I hope it never comes through this court," Fishburn said.

Hughes, 25, denies he was responsible for Eloise's death. Though he cursed at the judge and court officers when he was found guilty, he did not speak in court Friday.

His attorney, Grover Collins, said in court that Hughes maintains his innocence. In a recent report in the court file, Hughes again denied he abused the girl.

Fish said Hughes was delusional.

ICYMI in the flurry of court news early today: Student denies rape at UTC frat party, alleges slander http://tnne.ws/1QAumUh  @tennessean

Quote
A man accused in a civil lawsuit of raping a woman during a fraternity party at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga earlier this year says in a court filing the two had a sexual encounter that was consensual.

The fraternity, which is also named as a defendant, says in recent court filings that the woman's lawsuit is not valid because her claims are not federal violations. The woman says in her lawsuit that the fraternity, the Delta Epsilon chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha, had a duty to keep her safe and failed to do so, leading to the incident.

The man, who lives in Nashville, denies any wrongdoing and instead claims the woman who filed the lawsuit is trying to slander him and harm him by making false claims...

Tennessean is not naming the man because he is not facing criminal charges. Campus police and Chattanooga police are not planning to file charges...

The man also says in court paperwork that the woman first told police she did not remember what happened at the party in April, but later said she was raped.

Michael Sawicki, the woman's Dallas, Texas, attorney, said it is the man who is changing his story about what happened.

"He was specifically asked these things by the university and the police investigating and gave a statement saying that nothing had happened," he said.

The woman, identified in court records as Jane Doe, filed the case seeking at least $1 million in federal court in Nashville on Oct. 27.

The man's attorneys have requested the case be moved to federal court in east Tennessee, since the incident occurred there and students who could be witnesses live there.

The woman was a college student in Alabama when she attended a party at Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity in Chattanooga, the lawsuit states. It says she was forced to drink alcohol and was raped in a bathroom.

Police: Suspect in shooting of Metro Councilman Loniel Greene arrested after robbery in MS http://tnne.ws/1YfzLRx  via @tennessean

Quote
Nashville police announced Monday that a man suspected of shooting Nashville Councilman Loniel Greene has been jailed in Mississippi.

Police announced on Twitter that Brandon Hunt-Clark was arrested in an armed robbery case in Grenada, Miss. Grenada is about 110 miles north of Jackson, Miss.

Hunt-Clark is accused of robbing the Grenada Inn, a hotel there, on Dec. 10, according to Nashville police. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond and Nashville police are seeking to extradite him back to Middle Tennessee...

Greene was shot after he stopped at a West Nashville gas station on Nov. 4. Police publicly named 19-year-old Hunt-Clark as a suspect on Nov. 10, seeking warrants for his arrest on charges of aggravated assault.

The night of the shooting, Greene encountered two men walking away from the Marathon gas station at 301 White Bridge Road, according to police. Greene parked his SUV at a gas pump and followed the two men up Burgess Avenue onto Oceola Avenue.

Police have not released the name of the second man.

Near that intersection, multiple shots were fired at Greene and he was struck by three bullets, police said. He walked back to his SUV.

He later told police he followed the two men because he thought one of them was a relative, police said...

Police were dispatched Saturday afternoon to the 57-year-old Rector’s South Carolina residence in response to a 911 call about “a man in his underwear sitting on his porch with a long-gun.” (http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/south-carolina/thong-and-rifle-758392)

When a cop arrived at the home in Woodruff (pop. 4090), Rector was wearing only a "light blue pair of thong underwear," according to a police report. After ordering Rector off his porch, the officer retrieved the unloaded rifle and a cartridge from a nearby table.

“Ricky was asked why he was in his underwear and sitting on the porch with a rifle. He stated he was looking for deer,” the cop reported.

A former state Department of Human Services worker accused of using his position to try and exchange government benefits for sex pleaded guilty Thursday.

Awonuga was an eligibility counselor who helped people get benefits like food stamps and TennCare.

Milam said Awonuga told one applicant, a full-time student, that he liked her tattoos and wanted to rub oil on her.

Authorities said that Awonuga manipulated the program to get benefits for an applicant who was not eligible so that the woman would have sex with him. The woman declined, and police said Awonuga terminated the benefits —

Also new today: Former 3 Doors Down bassist revealed as defendant who had relations w/ court officer: http://tnne.ws/1lXRfGr  @tennessean

Quote
Former 3 Doors Down bassist Robert Todd Harrell pleaded guilty Friday to charges connected to a fatal crash in 2013.

Harrell, 43, pleaded guilty to six charges: vehicular homicide, transporting contraband into a penal institution, three counts of drug possession and violating the state’s implied consent law. His sentencing is set for Dec. 18.

Nashville police say Harrell admitted to drinking and taking prescription drugs before causing a fatal crash on April 19, 2013, that killed Paul Shoulders Jr.

Police say Harrell was under the influence and speeding down an interstate when he clipped the back of Shoulder’s truck.

Harrell said Friday he went on a trip to South Carolina with a court employee who was supposed to be supervising him while he was under house arrest.

The employee, Altavease McCluskey, has been indicted on a charge of official misconduct, according to court records. She has been fired, according to court testimony.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in October announced McCluskey, 32, was accused of having a sexual relationship with a defendant.

"She brought a female friend of hers over and the two of them had sex in front of me," he read Friday, seated in the witness stand in Criminal Court Judge Mark Fishburn's courtroom.

McCluskey took off Harrell's GPS monitor bracelet so they could go to South Carolina for a weekend. The report also says that McCluskey rented an apartment in Sumner County in her name for Harrell, who was not supposed to leave Davidson County.

"She had me cleaning her car, walking her dog," Harrell read Friday. "She never told me she would violate me, but I was always under the impression that if I didn't do what she said I would be violated."

Quote
Judy Allison passed away after complications from surgery at Iredell Hospital in Statesville, N.C. She was 74.

She was the wife of Bobby Allison, who was voted NASCAR's Most Popular Driver six times. He is a three-time winner of the Daytona 500 -- 1978, 1982, 1988. He captured the NASCAR Modified Special Division championship in 1962 and 1963...

NASCAR released this statement tonight: "NASCAR extends its condolences to the friends and family of Judy Allison, the wife of NASCAR Hall of Famer Bobby Allison. Judy, the matriarch of a cornerstone NASCAR family, provided the foundation for the careers of a legendary husband and two sons who both lost their lives entirely too soon. Her love extended well beyond her own family, as many in the NASCAR family leaned upon Judy for support and compassion during many difficult times. "We are deeply saddened by the loss of a true friend, and a woman who has given much to our sport."

Bobby and brother Donnie, along with Neil Bonnett, Red Farmer, and later, Hut Stricklin, comprised the famous "Alabama Gang" which raced out of Hueytown...

Wow!!!! RT @courierjournal: #BREAKING UPDATED: Up to 2,000 in fights at Mall St. Matthews http://cjky.it/1YJ63EE

Quote
As many as 2,000 people, mostly juveniles, caused multiple disturbances and fights at the Mall St. Matthews Saturday evening, prompting police from four agencies to respond and forcing the shopping center to close early, police said.

St. Matthews Police Department spokesman Officer Dennis McDonald said officers assigned to patrol the mall got a call around 7 p.m. of a fight breaking out inside the complex. That fight led to another, and soon, McDonald said, "the disturbances fed off each other."

Eventually, officers from three additional agencies - Jeffersontown and Louisville Metro police, as well as the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department - were called to help get the situation under control. The LMPD air unit's helicopter was also called for assistance.

Mall management made the decision to close the facility around 8 p.m., McDonald said. That prompted the fights and unruly conduct to spill out into the mall parking lot, onto Shelbyville Road, Bowling Boulevard and adjacent streets and into neighboring businesses including the Whole Foods parking lot and several restaurants across Shelbyville Road, he said. The action in the streets also slowed traffic in the area.

McDonald said that no arrests had been made by late Saturday, mainly due all the officers having to deal with so many "hot spots" or places where fights were occurring. He added that a majority of those involved were between the ages of "15 and 19 years old" - though he said some juveniles involved were as young as middle school-aged children - and called the night's events "troubling", adding that authorities believe a majority of those involved were either dropped off or took public transportation to get to the mall.

"Apparently there are parents and guardians that have used the mall as a babysitter and we’re not going to tolerate it and the mall isn’t going to tolerate it,” McDonald said.

While McDonald said that authorities believe that the disturbances kept increasing due the juveniles' use of social media, they do not believe the entire incident was coordinated.

#lsu banning #hoverboards http://bit.ly/1PzKqWK

Quote
Electronic skateboards and self-balancing devices, like hoverboards, are going to be temporarily off limits on the LSU campus, according to an email sent out to campus residents.

Their use is restricted due to safety concerns while riding as well as the recent fires they have caused while charging their batteries.

LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard said his understanding is that the hoverboard ban includes campus grounds and all other campus buildings.

Jackson Ward 3 Councilman Kenneth Stokes said Friday he isn't trying to incite a riot when he suggests  throwing rocks, bricks and bottles at  police officers from other jurisdictions who chase misdemeanor suspects into Jackson.

"My position is this: When you have these police officers coming from other jurisdictions and they will not respect human life, then I said we should use rocks, bricks or bottles to try to get the message over: stop endangering our children," Stokes said. "Now I have supported police officers in police departments all over this state from when I was a (Hinds County) supervisor when we voted for new cars and equipment for police officer. I opened and closed the last council meeting an honor of an officer who had died. I have named streets after officers in this city."

Those commenting on social media have blasted Stokes for his statement. One person suggested Stokes should be arrested for inciting violence against police.

Another wrote: "Just thinking this cannot be true. Can it be possible that a sworn in official of a city would even think this much less make a statement of this nature. outrageous!"

Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker said in a Facebook post to Stokes that law enforcement will not be intimidated by him.

"Any Madison County law enforcement that is attacked because your ignorant statements, I will hold you responsible," Tucker said. "I fully intend to contact the MS (Mississippi) Attorney General and inquire if your statements constitute assaults on officers by threat."

Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber said on Twitter that while there is a need to demand respect of jurisdictional boundaries, he could never condone violence against officers...

Unbelievable.  A city councilman, calling for violence against police officers!  This ignorant man should immediately be removed from any position within the local govt.  He should also be charged with trying to incite violence against law enforcement officers.  It's pathetic that people like this are elected to any position within the govt. Jackson residents should be ashamed of electing someone like this.

Yeah, sounds like the city doesn't really want him removed, but are just covering their butt's with their own written statement.

If his resignation is not called for......or he is not removed from office....then it would appear that the community agrees with his statement.  No excuse for this person to remain holding that position, in any decent community.

UPDATE: First arrest made in Mt. Juliet gun store burglary http://tnne.ws/1Ras6Fd  via @tennessean

Quote
18-year-old has been arrested in connection to a Wednesday morning burglary of a gun store in Mt. Juliet, according to the city police department's Twitter feed.

Malik Bradford of Nashville is one of multiple suspects police say stole 19 firearms from the store by crashing a stolen vehicle through the store's front window. Bradford is the first suspect arrested and is cooperating with the investigation, police said. He is being held in the Wilson County Jail and charged with burglary, two counts of theft of property and possession of a prohibited weapon.

Police were initially looking for four suspects as the department conducted an extensive search Wednesday morning. Police now believe five suspects were involved, and four are still at large.

The burglary took place around 2:45 a.m. at nRange, 9904 Lebanon Road.

Police think the suspects used a Volvo stolen out of Nashville to crash into the front window of the store. The suspects then drove to Parrish Hill and unloaded the firearms out of the Volvo and into a Chevrolet, police said.

A resident reported to police the two vehicles parked on Parrish Hill, where individuals were unloading items out of one car and into another. Shortly afterward an officer spotted the Chevrolet on Lebanon Road and stopped it on Park Glen Drive.

During the stop, three men ran from the car and into a nearby wooded area. The suspects were described as young, thin males, wearing dark clothing and possibly camouflage.

A mixture of long guns and handguns were missing. Two handguns are still unaccounted for, police said.

'That was the moment it became about torture.' My story on a horrible Nashville kidnapping, attack: http://tnne.ws/1Rgvmih  via @tennessean

Quote
The man and his friend were killing time early that day waiting for The Tennessean newspapers to be ready for delivery, which was the job of one of the men. They went to wait at one of their homes at Hickory Trace apartments on Hickory Hollow Place.

About three miles away, four men were leaving Caribbean Hut club on Antioch Pike. They’d spent hours drinking and dancing.

“I told my little brother I’m trying to rob someone tonight,” Duol Wal testified during trial on Thursday. Wal previously pleaded guilty in the attack.

Wal said he told his brother, who has also pleaded guilty, that his pockets were empty.

***

The victims were attacked outside of the apartment. One testified he was pushed up against a door and held there with a knife at his neck. He emptied a money clip and cellphone from his pockets, he said.

The victims were pushed into the backseat of the car, and Wal testified he held them there. The victims said they were beaten, stabbed in the arms and legs, threatened with death and told to keep their heads down. At one point, one of the men grabbed one victim's hand and tried to break his fingers.

"That was the moment it became about torture," the victim testified.

The attackers drove to at least two nearby ATMs to withdraw cash using the victims' debit cards. Wal said they got $1,600 from the cash machines...

Sexual assault of men occurs less frequently than women, but experts say the emotional and psychological effects can be similar.


All four men were charged in the attack.

Two of them, Duol Wal, 25, and Tut Tut, 19, previously pleaded guilty and are serving 30-year prison terms. The third, Yangreek Wal, 22, pleaded guilty in an agreement he would testify against Tutlam, and is awaiting sentencing...

Peterpal Tutlam is from South Sudan and has been in the U.S. as a refugee since he was about 10 years old, according to his attorney, David Harris. All four men charged in the case were born abroad but have lived in the U.S. much of their lives.

Fox8: Woman accused of robbing string of jewelry stores across the South arrested (http://myfox8.com/2016/01/09/woman-wanted-in-jewelry-store-robberies-arrested)

Quote
Abigail Lee Kemp and another person allegedly stole at least $450,000 worth of items during armed robberies in South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina.

Kemp, 24, was arrested Friday in Smyrna, Ga. by FBI agents, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Another person was reportedly taken into custody with Kemp, but that person’s identity has not been released.

On Monday morning, the woman allegedly robbed the Jared Vault in Mebane. She allegedly displayed a handgun and zip tied employees hands before taking merchandise from the store.

The woman is also believed to have executed multiple similarly-styled jewelry store robberies across the Southeast in recent months. The locations include Jared Vault in Sevierville, Tenn., on Oct. 16, 2015; Jared Jewelry in Bluffton, S.C., on Sept. 2, 2015; Reeds Jewelers in Panama City Beach, Fla., on Aug. 11, 2015; Zale’s Jewelry in Dawsonville, Ga., on Aug. 5, 2015; and Jared Jewelry in Woodstock, Ga., on April 29, 2015.

Quote
In 2012, a then-22-year-old Abigail Lee Kemp posed for a professional photo shoot. Young, pretty, brunette, she wore short dresses of black and red. Her high heels were steady on the balcony of a Midtown Atlanta high-rise, skyline stalwarts like the AT&T building standing tall in the background.

She bent over to touch the water flowing from a fountain, sat in front of an outdoor fireplace and stared into the distance. She smiled while a tattooed man suggestively touched her hips.

The same woman will be a few miles away Monday, in federal court at the Richard B. Russell building downtown. The FBI believes her responsible for a string of armed jewelry store robberies across five Southeastern states, crimes they say netted watches and diamonds worth millions.

Her arrest was thanks, in part, to an entirely different set of photos...

Followers of Moorish Nation don't believe in police authority. That can be a challenge in system: http://tnne.ws/1P5q42J  via @tennessean

The Moops

Quote
It was a melee that unfolded on the doorstep of a Nashville home where three women tried to escape police officers who came to do their jobs.

The women, according to court testimony, did not believe the police had the authority to interfere in their lives. One police officer testified in a recent trial that the women shouted that police "were not law enforcement, we were merely policy enforcers."

The women are followers of what is called the "Moorish Nation," a black nationalist group that has scattered followers in Nashville. Their case is an example of the alternative populations that do not believe in government authority and how they pose a challenge to the criminal justice system. Those cases are rare but do occasionally come through Nashville courts, officials said.

Police encountered the three women, who are triplets, while trying to arrest one for failing to appear in court on a driver's license charge. But as officers tried to make an arrest, the women began to resist, resulting in a fight.

Nashville's Moorish population tends to live in northern and eastern parts of the city, according to Metro Police Detective Sgt. Chris West of the specialized investigations division.

"What we’ve seen from the Moors mostly is they don’t believe in having a driver’s license. They don’t believe in paying taxes," West said. "We’ve run into them along with the sheriff’s department in evictions."

Nashville private jet broker drops case against @IamSteveHarvey, says they've worked out differences: http://tnne.ws/1P9oqx1  @tennessean

Quote
A Nashville private jet broker has dropped its lawsuit against comedian and media personality Steve Harvey.

Business Aircraft Leasing Inc. filed in federal court in Nashville on Tuesday to dismiss the lawsuit against Harvey and Harvey's company, One World Aviation. The Nashville company filed a lawsuit in November alleging Harvey did not pay for about $200,000 of customization work for a Gulfstream private jet.

The request to dismiss the case does not provide more details about how the dispute was resolved.

Brandon Williams, an attorney for Harvey, released a letter from the aviation company that says there was a "misunderstanding" and that Business Aircraft Leasing and One World have since entered into a business agreement.

"I wish you the best of success and good flying," company President Chuck Mulle writes in the letter.


Harvey had just misread the agreement and upon review they got it sorted.

Matthew McConaughey's connection to Bear Bryant: 'Dad and Bear didn't get along' (http://www.al.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2016/01/matthew_mcconaughey_talks_bear.html)

Quote
"My mom's from Trenton, New Jersey. My dad was born in Jackson, Mississippi, and raised in Morgan City. They met at the University of Kentucky, where my dad played football under Bear Bryant," he told the magazine. "Dad and Bear didn't get along, because Bear didn't play him in the Orange Bowl or something like that, so my father transferred to the University of Houston."

His dad went on to play for the Green Bay Packers for a year.

The Orange Bowl was a big game that year.

Destrehan teacher accused of sex with female student is St. Charles Parish School Board president’s daughter  (http://theadvocate.com/news/14581734-123/wwl-tv-another-destrehan-teach-accused-of-sex-with-student)

Quote
The daughter of the St. Charles Parish School Board president was arrested Thursday on an allegation that she carried on a sexual relationship with a high school student for nearly a year, starting when the girl was 16.

St. Charles Sheriff Greg Champagne said investigators believe the relationship began in September 2014 and continued until August 2015. A family member first reported the allegations to the Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday. The teacher, 26-year-old Kimberly Naquin, was booked Thursday night on counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile and prohibited sexual conduct between a student and educator.

The sheriff said all parties in the case have cooperated in the case, although he stopped short of saying that Naquin has confessed.

Curator joins call for dismissal of Melissa Click, the MU professor who clashed with reporters. (Via @abc17news) http://www.abc17news.com/news/curator-joins-call-for-dismissal-of-melissa-click/37443050 …

Quote
COLUMBIA, Mo. -

A member of the board of curators for the four-campus University of Missouri system has joined the call for an assistant professor at the Columbia campus to be fired over a videotaped clash with reporters.

Curator David Steelman of Rolla described Melissa Click as "an embarrassment." But speaking before a meeting Wednesday, Steelman noted that he's not chairman of the board and isn't able to put her continued employment on a future agenda.

Click garnered national attention after she confronted a student photographer. The photographer was filming after the university system's president and the Columbia campus' chancellor resigned amid protests over what some saw as indifference to racial issues.

Steelman told ABC 17 News Thursday afternoon the desire to remove a student from a public place deserved some sort of discipline from the university, but calling for "muscle" to remove the student, as is seen in the video, put others in the way of harm.

"If all she had done had simply been to try to prevent students from doing their job and students from using public land, I would have been shocked by that," Steelman said in a phone interview. "But her call for muscle, I found absolutely appalling and intolerable."

According to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, the girl was part of a larger group who went exploring Saturday afternoon. The girl was not able to walk because a large rock had fallen on her leg. Rescue teams needed to use four-wheelers and specialized equipment to pull her to safety.

The Hollywood Fire Department said the girl’s injuries are not life threatening and she is suffering from a broken ankle.

Deontay Wilder didn't appreciate Tyson Fury's antics, says he'll 'really, really hurt him' when they fight http://s.al.com/2XgT57L

Quote
BROOKLYN, New York - Right after Deontay Wilder knocked out Artur Szpilka with a vicious ninth-round punch, fellow heavyweight Tyson Fury jumped in the ring to talk some trash with Wilder.

Fury holds the WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight belts after he beat Wladimir Klitschko last November, and he'll rematch with Klitschko later this year. After that, he wants to fight Wilder. The two have trash-talked each other in person and on social media for four years.

Fury flew over from England to the fight at Barclays Center to watch the fight. But most people thought Fury's antics were in poor taste, given that Szpilka was on the ground for several minutes before being taken off on a stretcher to the hospital.

"I don't take the guy serious at all," Wilder said. "We know Fury likes to entertain and promote. I just wasn't in the mood tonight. You've got a man on the ground that's hurt. He may be good right now but we don't know what's going to happen tomorrow."

"I'll fight you in your backyard after I beat (Wladimir) Klitschko again," Fury said, as the two got eye to eye.

Wilder is from Tuscaloosa.

Quote
A Bryan officer responding to the accident just before 3 a.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of South Texas Avenue asked the woman lying in the roadway if she was OK, but instead of answering she kept asking where her friends were, according to court documents.
 
One of those friends called 911 and later told police that she was in the car with Jasmine Corpus when the woman got upset, started punching the vehicle, got out and ran into oncoming traffic where she was hit, the police report states.
The woman, whom the officer believed was intoxicated, stood up and tried to walk away, but a witness gave her a bear hug to prevent her from leaving, while the officer grabbed her arm, the report states. The woman cussed at the officer, saying she wasn’t going to jail, according to the document.
The officer said that Corpus pushed away from the witness and struck the officer in the cheek while trying to get away, but the officer and witness were able to wrestle her to the ground where she resisted arrest, the documents state.
In the struggle, the woman bit the officer’s hand, according to the report that detailed how the woman put up a fight and cussed at medics, hospital staff and patients.
Corpus was treated at St. Joseph hospital and taken to jail where she posted $12,000 bail the next day and was released.
In addition to the third-degree felony charge of assault on a police officer — which carries a maximum fine of up to 10 years behind bars —

A couple living in Alabama attempted to raise $45,000 through a GoFundMe account to help pay for medical expenses but a self-described hoax detective apparently ruined the scheme.

ABC News reported Monday that after questions were raised by the hoax detective, Taryn Harper Wright, and others that GoFundMe canceled the account for Julian Baker and Jason Martinez – the couple who listed Moulton as their home – and refunded the donations.

Wright, who said she has a history of uncovering fake illnesses that are used to solicit money online, said there were several red flags about Martinez's illness.

Among those were the fact that he looked healthy in pictures, a photo of supposedly deathly-ill Martinez in the hospital didn't appear to show he was connected to any instruments as well as the different illnesses Martinez said he was suffering from – brain, stomach and bone cancer as well as rust in his blood from staples left in his body.

Martinez also could not give the name of the cancer from which he was suffering – he said it started with a C –

UPDATE: Rep. Durham resigns as Whip after @Tennessean investigation reveals he sent harassing texts to women: http://tnne.ws/1ViZh7R

Quote
House Majority Whip Jeremy Durham's decision Sunday to resign his leadership position in the Tennessee House Republican Caucus came after a two-hour whirlwind in which GOP leadership released a statement from Durham saying he resigned, only to have Durham waffle on his resignation in several emails to The Tennessean.

The decision to resign came as Durham spent his afternoon watching the Denver Broncos football team beat the New England Patriots, and in the wake of a Tennessean investigation into inappropriate text messages he sent to three women.

On Friday, Durham said he didn’t remember sending the text messages.

“Not having seen the texts, not knowing who the other party to the conversation is, when they were sent, what exactly they say, whether I was responding or initiating the text stream, it is simply impossible to respond,” Durham said in an email Friday.

“Furthermore, the fact that there has never been a complaint filed makes me question your continued use of anonymous and unverified sources.”

Quote
Florida State has settled a federal Title IX lawsuit with a woman who accused former Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston of rape, according to USA Today.

Erica Kinsman is a former Florida State student who said she was raped by Winston in 2012. The state’s attorney announced Winston would not be charged with any crimes in December 2013 after a lengthy investigation.

Florida State agreed to pay Kinsman $950,000, according to the report. The university also agreed to make a five-year commitment to awareness, prevention and training programs.

Florida State did not admit to liability in the settlement...

Kinsman and Winston currently have an ongoing lawsuit pending in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

A Jefferson Parish deputy was injured in a shooting in the 5300 block of Douglas Street in Holy Cross, near the intersection of Egania and Douglas streets.

The deputy, identified as 35-year-old Stephen Arnold, a 12-year veteran of the JPSO, was shot as police were executing a search warrant at the home. Arnold was shot in the neck during the incident. He is currently listed critical but stable condition.

Around 6:10 a.m. the New Orleans Police Department confirmed that "an agent was shot." Later police said the officer injured was a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputy. The deputy was part of a DEA task force that included NOPD, JPSO, and other federal law enforcement officers.

A suspect was taken into the custody, according to the NOPD. Three people were in the home when the search warrant was being served. One person was arrested. The other two people in the home are being detained.

"A JPSO Task Force narcotics agent was shot several times while taking part in a narcotics operation on Douglas Street in New Orleans. Our officer is currently being treated for his injuries at University Hospital," said a statement from JPSO spokesman, Col. John Fortunato.

Nashville DA: Councilman Loniel Greene lied in court, may have used criminal $$$ to get man out of jail: http://tnne.ws/1SN7KT1  @tennessean

Quote
Prosecutors say in court filings that Metro Councilman Loniel Greene lied in court when he got a man out of jail earlier this month and took part in a scheme to keep a possible domestic violence victim from court.

The documents raise questions about Greene's activities and come just three months after the councilman was shot and wounded at a gas station on White Bridge Pike. Greene said he thought he recognized one of two men, so he followed them away from the gas station and then was shot. One suspect is in custody in Mississippi, but he has not given his side of the story to police.

Paperwork filed Thursday in the unrelated case says Greene went to court in Nashville on Jan. 6 and testified that the money he wanted to use to bond Tavares Buchanan out of jail was his own earnings.

Buchanan, 30, was arrested Dec. 29 on charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault involving a deadly weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia. An arrest affidavit says Buchanan got irate at his girlfriend, Sparkle Johnson, after a family gathering, gave her a gun and told her to kill herself and physically attacked her so she was scared to leave.

But prosecutors later discovered evidence — recorded jail phone calls between Buchanan and someone using Greene's cellphone number — that they say show Greene lied.

Columbia prosecutors have reached a deal with University of Missouri-Columbia assistant professor Melissa Click, in which she will avoid prosecution for a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a November run-in with student journalists.

Click’s part of the deal requires her to complete 20 hours of community service work and not break the law for one year.

“Based on the facts of this case, I believe this disposition to be appropriate,” Columbia City Prosecutor Stephen Richey said in a news release.

The deal, he added, is in line with how his office has handled similar cases. He said it “adequately serves the interest of justice by ensuring the defendant will not engage in similar conduct.”

Click gained national attention last year after she was captured on video blocking student journalists and calling for “muscle” to keep the journalists from taking photos and videos of a campus demonstration.

Students had gathered on campus to celebrate the resignation of University of Missouri system President Timothy M. Wolfe.

Local officials: If you bring Panama City Beach chaos to Alabama, 'you're going to jail': http://ow.ly/XJlud 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CaAgCyUWEAA-eyI.jpg)

Quote
With Panama City Beach clamping down on spring break hedonism, should the Alabama coast be bracing for a season of mayhem?

That fear has been raised lately among some in the Gulf Shores-Orange Beach area, but local officials say they don't see much cause for concern – and they say they're fully prepared to shut down any public misbehavior that could damage the area's carefully cultivated reputation as a family-friendly destination.

"If you come here, you better behave, or you're going to jail. It's that simple," said Orange Beach Mayor Tony Kennon. "And we're not going to put up with the nonsense Panama City puts up with. We will have undercover officers, we will have uniformed officers, we will have everyone I can possibly have on the beaches, any place where spring breakers might gather. That is not who we are. We are a family friendly destination, that's what we're going to stay. This is not a place to come have MTV fun like you did in Panama City."

There's also another factor heightening concerns in some quarters: Compared to some years when major Southeastern universities spread spring break over several weeks, this year things seem to be much more focused. The week starting Sunday, March 12, is break for a heavy slate of schools including Auburn, Clemson, Alabama, the University of Kentucky, the University of South Alabama, the University of Tennessee, the University of Texas and Mississippi State University.

"I do think more people will be here," Jenifer Surface-Ivey, publicist for Flora-Bama Lounge & Package, said of the scheduling. "We're excited about it."

Gainesville police are investigating the death of a 20-year-old University of Florida student from Weston, who fell six stories after tumbling over a glass partition at a new luxury apartment complex near campus.

GPD spokesman Ben Tobias issued a news alert Sunday morning that said Chance W. Wolf was found unconscious and bleeding heavily when officers arrived at the building at 311 SW 13th St. shortly after 2 a.m.

Two officers performed CPR until emergency medical workers arrived and took Wolf to UF Health Shands Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:35 a.m.

Police say the building's surveillance cameras show Wolf exit the sixth-floor elevator, walk down a hallway, open double doors that overlook an interior courtyard and then walk forward, apparently falling over a waist-high, glass partition and onto the ground.

No foul play is suspected, police said.

2 Tennessee police officers Tase cleaning woman they mistook for burglar http://dlvr.it/KN42t9

Quote
Two Tennessee police officers Tased a middle school cleaning woman they mistook for a burglar early this month.

The woman then left the room and began to walk quickly down a hallway. When one of the officers yelled the Spanish word for stop, the officers claim she began to run away.

The officers proceeded to chase her through the school's cafeteria, down a flight of stairs and outside into the parking lot.

That's when one of the officers ordered her to stop or she would be shot with a stun gun, according to the officers' report.

One of the officers' then deployed his Taser, causing the woman to fall to the ground.

The officers later learned the woman was an employee of the cleaning company ABM, which regularly works in the school.  The woman was wearing a T-shirt with the company's logo.

After giving several false names to the officers, Juana Raymundo, 36, originally from Guatemala, was charged with evading arrest.

University of Tennessee announced Monday afternoon that it has reached a compromise with East Tennessee lawmakers who wanted to force the school to put the Lady Vols name back on all its women's athletic teams.

Chancellor Jimmy Cheek revealed Monday that all women's athletics teams will wear a commemorative patch on their uniforms during the 2016-2017 season to honor the "legacy of the Lady Vols."

After that season, each student-athlete will decide whether or not to wear the patch on her uniform.

When UT athletics switched to Nike last year it ditched the Lady Vol brand for all sports, except women's basketball. 

Lawmakers claimed the school ignored the petitions and demonstrations from thousands of people upset over the change.

Tennessee family sues @DancingABC celeb after he posts meme of girl w/ Down syndrome. http://tnne.ws/1WXDGDj  via @tennessean  (Photo at link)

Quote
A Middle Tennessee family wants $6 million from Val Chmerkovskiy of "Dancing With The Stars" because of a meme of a girl with Down syndrome he posted on Facebook.

Springfield resident Stephanie Mitchell, the girl's mother, filed a defamation lawsuit in federal court in Nashville last week. She says Chmerkovskiy and two other defendants caused her daughter harm by spreading the picture around the Internet.

The picture was taken in 2008 when the girl was 8 years old and a spectator at a Nashville Sounds game. The lawsuit says Michael Smail of Chicago took the picture, which he then posted online with the caption: "Everything that's wrong with America."

The lawsuit says Chmerkovskiy in January posted a meme with the girl's picture and the words: "Letting your kid become obese should be considered child abuse."

The girl's family found the picture on Chmerkovskiy's Facebook page.

Mercer guard Jibri Bryan dies after being shot in head http://www.sportingnews.com/ncaa-basketball-news/4693562-mercer-guard-jibri-bryan-shot-in-the-head … via @sportingnews

Quote
"The Mercer community is grieving the tragic death of graduate student Jibri Bryan, who has been part of the University family for six years," Mercer University president William D. Underwood said in a statement released Tuesday night. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bryan family."

Bibb County Sheriff David Davis said the 23-year-old Bryan was found in the driver's seat of a Monte Carlo parked at a convenience store. Another man was critically wounded as well. Davis said the "callous" murder took place in "broad, open daylight."

"First and foremost, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Bryans," Mercer athletic director Jim Cole said. "The Mercer athletic family is deeply saddened by Jibri's passing. Jibri was always cheerful and greeted everyone in the department with a smile. He will not only be missed by his basketball family but by all of us in the University Athletic Department."

Investigators told the Macon Telegraph they don’t know what led to the shooting, but have "some good leads" as to who the gunman is. Authorities said the incident was recorded by security cameras outside the store.

LSU student misses 'Jeopardy!' questions on Derrick Henry, Steve Spurrier http://es.pn/1PQSlug

Quote
The $1,000 question quizzed the students on the former Florida and South Carolina coach who once famously taunted Florida State University as "Free Shoes University." The answer is Spurrier, who at Florida was 11-1 against LSU (although most of those games would have come before these students were born).

OK, that’s a bit of a challenge for the average college football fan or, let’s say, the studious scholar who would in fact make for a good "Jeopardy!" contestant.

Luckily, the last first-round question was the $200 selection in the college football category, and all host Alex Trebek wanted to know was which team Heisman Trophy winner Henry played for in 2015. That’s a cake question, right?

Crickets. Nobody answered or even tried, and this seemed like too much of a slam dunk, especially for a student of an SEC school, to completely flub again.

Yet the LSU student didn’t buzz in, possibly because he remembers Henry carving the Tigers’ defense for 210 yards...

Someone with sticky fingers swiped a rare Rolling Stones album from Grimey's: http://tnne.ws/1XaEpkA  via @Tennessean.

Quote
Someone with sticky fingers stole a rare The Rolling Stones sample album from Nashville record shop Grimey's Too, store staff said.

The vinyl was hanging on the wall in the shop at 1702 8th Ave. S, and about a week and a half ago it disappeared, said Tyler Glaser, a used vinyl buyer at the store...

"It was a publishing LP called 'The songs of The Rolling Stones,'" he said.

"It was basically, publishing companies, you know, they’ll make compilations to pitch songs to get artists to cover them. It was snippets of Rolling Stones songs that their publishing company had put on a record and sent to people."

Glaser said it was the rarer of two versions and was priced at Grimey's for $750...

The suspected thief, who apparently thinks you can always get what you want, has not been caught, nor has the record surfaced, Glaser said.

But the Music City record scene is tight-knit, and the record is so rare, Glaser was confident it would be found.

First came a rare Rolling Stones album that was stolen from the store a week and a half ago.

Now, Nashville record store Grimey's New and Preloved Music has gotten its front glass door busted open. It happened overnight Saturday, prompting police to come to the scene on Sunday morning.

Doyle Davis, co-owner of Grimey's New and Preloved Music, says no merchandise was stolen. He also said the busted door is completely unrelated to the missing Rolling Stones album, which was hanging on a wall inside the store but disappeared recently.

“It doesn’t look like anything is missing,” Davis told The Tennessean Sunday morning in regards to the broken door. “The alarm didn’t go off, so they didn’t even come inside.”


n some positive news on the search for the Rolling Stones album and its thief, Davis said he received a recent tip that he has turned over to police.

He said managment of another record shop in Nashville overheard one of their customer’s “bragging” about a rare Rolling Stones record that he had recently acquired.

She says, "I was never calling for violence." Click claimed the person taking the video never identified himself as a student or a journalist.

Click has not spoken publicly until now because she thought the events were historic for the University of Missouri system and the movement's message deserved more attention, before the video became a legal matter.

Click also confirmed she is not a member of Concerned Student 1950. She said the first time she ever saw the group was during the homecoming parade in October. She went to find out why things had stopped and became disappointed with the crowd's angry reaction, before stepping in to let the students know they were not alone.

Here's an interesting one: A dispute at a Franklin bar has become a fight before the state's top court: http://tnne.ws/1Xm6Nk6  @tennessean

Quote
A dispute at a Franklin bar — one that records say led to an angry patron hopping in his rental car and hitting the bar owner — has become a battle over insurance laws before the state's highest court.

The case deals with how rental car companies insure their vehicles, and in what circumstances a driver's insurance policy applies if they get into a crash and the other car is a rental. The lawyer for the bar owner says prior court rulings in the case left a dangerous gap for drivers.

"The Court of Appeals has created a hole in the coverage of every uninsured motorist coverage plan in Tennessee," Shea Callahan said during arguments before the Tennessee Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Here's what started at The Pond, the Franklin bar, on July 20, 2012, according to court records:

Edward Martin was standing outside when he was hit by a Kia Sorento driven by Greg Powers, who had been refused service by Martin. Powers had rented the car from Enterprise Rent-A-Car. (Four months later, Powers was driving drunk and hit and killed a man related by marriage to a member of the band Little Big Town.)

Martin suffered a knee injury and had surgery and sued.

But his insurance company, IDS Property Casualty Insurance Company, asked a Williamson County judge to dismiss the lawsuit, saying that the uninsured motorist policy they supplied to Martin did not cover the Enterprise rental because it is considered "self-insured," but not uninsured.

Self-insured, according to Tennessee law, means that a person or company that has 25 or more vehicles has been approved by the Commissioner of Insurance and shown they have the money to cover claims that arise. Callahan argues that because of state and federal laws, the "self-insured" definition only applies when a rental car company employee is driving the car, and thus Martin's uninsured motorist policy should cover his medical costs.

Florence cop saves stabbing victim's life after wife allegedly attacks, spray-paints him over Facebook activity: http://ow.ly/YeAIN

Quote
A Florence man is recovering from multiple stab wounds after an altercation with his wife, according to authorities. Florence police are giving kudos to one of their officers for making sure the victim made it to the hospital.

Florence officers responded to a stabbing call in the 300 block of McKinley Avenue shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday. They found the male victim lying in the front yard with multiple stab wounds.

His injuries included an arterial stab wound. He was treated at Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital.

The suspect is the man's wife, 71-year-old Patsy Witt Dixon. She was still at the scene when police arrived.

Investigators say the evidence indicates they were arguing about Facebook activity when it turned violent. They said Dixon assaulted her husband with a kitchen knife and sprayed him numerous times with spray paint.

This is the second time this month Maxwell is being credited with saving a life. The other life was that of Lauderdale County Deputy Randall McCrary, who was shot twice by a suspect in Florence on Feb. 3.

As for the crime itself, lead detective Justin Wright said, "This case is much different than what we normally encounter concerning domestic violence and highlights the fact that domestic violence spans age, race, background, and gender. The fact that this case involves an older male victim and older female suspect shows that domestic violence can happen anywhere and at any time in our lives."

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CbBm8RuW0AEMgnX.jpg)

Quote
Ernie Andrus's 3,000-mile journey across the United States started at the Pacific Ocean in San Diego on Oct. 7, 2013, and will end at the Atlantic Ocean near Brunswick, Ga., this August. By the time he finishes, he will have been running for three years, to raise funds to take the LST-325, a World War II-era tank landing ship, back to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, in 2019.

And he'll be the oldest person ever to make such a trek. Andrus plans to finish his run on Aug. 20, the day after his 93rd birthday.

Andrus joined the U.S. Navy in 1942, and was first assigned to the USS Rochambeau. Though he didn't know it at the time, the ship picked up a young naval officer named John F. Kennedy and transported him from New Caledonia to Espiritu Santu, New Hebrides Islands, in the South Pacific. Until the end of the war, he worked as a medic aboard LST-124.

He was among the group of sailors who, in 2000, restored the LST-325, the last of the 1,051 LSTs built during the war. The group of 28 sailors, whose average age was 72, sailed the ship from Crete, Greece, into the port of Mobile on Jan. 10, 2001.

It will cost millions of dollars to transport the LST 325 to France because it's no longer considered ocean-worthy and would have to go on another vessel, he said.

"What I've raised so far is not a drop in the bucket," he said, "but whatever I raise goes to the ship."

Andrus will be in Mobile for a couple of weeks, as he makes his daily 7:30 a.m. runs along U.S. 90, heading east. He runs on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, an average of six to eight miles per day –

Suspended Missouri professor seeks to repair image, keep job http://bit.ly/1RDDxou

Quote
A suspended University of Missouri assistant professor who drew national attention for her run-ins with student journalists during race-related protests at the university last year has been working with a public relations firm to try to repair her image and says she hopes to keep her job.

Melissa Click was caught on video last November calling for “some muscle” to remove student videographer Mark Schierbecker from the protest area at the public university. Click was suspended pending further investigation. She also was charged with misdemeanor assault, though a prosecutor said he’ll drop the matter if she completes community service.

But the educator is facing a new round of criticism after The Columbia Missourian posted a second video on Saturday from a homecoming protest last fall at Mizzou. In it, she can be seen yelling an obscenity at a police officer attempting to move protesters, including Click, off of a street where they were blocking a car carrying then-University of Missouri System President Timothy M. Wolfe.

The new footage prompted a statement Sunday from Interim Chancellor Hank Foley that said: “Last night, like many in our community, I watched newly released footage of Dr. Melissa Click directing a verbal assault against members of the Columbia Police Department during the homecoming parade in October 2015. Her conduct and behavior are appalling, and I am not only disappointed, I am angry, that a member of our faculty acted this way. Her actions caught on camera last October, are just another example of a pattern of misconduct by Dr. Click—most notably, her assault on one of our students while seeking ‘muscle’ during a highly volatile situation on Carnahan Quadrangle in November. We must have high expectations of members of our community, and I will address these new revelations with the Board of Curators as they work to complete their own review of the matter.”

In a series of recent interviews, the assistant communications professor has expressed contrition and said she wants to stay at Missouri.

“My mistake is just one part of who I am,” she told The Columbia Missourian. “I want to stay at MU. I deserve to be heard and I deserve to be treated fairly, and I’m going to fight to be treated fairly.”

Click’s effort to modify her image is being handled by Status Labs, a Texas-based online reputation management firm...

South Alabama defensive end Romello Riley hospitalized after collapsing during workout | http://ow.ly/YomQO

Quote
South Alabama defensive end Romello Riley is hospitalized in New Orleans after collapsing while working out on Friday.

Riley, a junior, transferred to USA after two seasons at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and enrolled in January. The incident occurred Friday at a fitness club in Riley's hometown of Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

According to GulfLive.com, Riley suffered a stroke due to a blood clot on his brain and has paralysis on the right side of his body. He is in critical condition at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans, but is expected to be moved to a private room later Tuesday.

South Alabama head coach Joey Jones released the following brief statement to AL.com on Tuesday:

"First of all, our prayers go out to Romello and his family," Jones said. "A very tough situation. As a family at South Alabama, especially with our football program, we are very concerned. He's a great kid who works hard and we're hoping for the best."

Domestic violence suspect shot by wife last year mistakenly released from jail, rearrested http://ow.ly/YrB8V

Quote
A man accused of breaking into a home last year to assault his estranged wife - who then shot him in self-defense - was mistakenly released from the Madison County jail last week.

Bradley Lamar Skinner of Lacey's Spring was released by mistake following a court ruling Feb. 8 denying his request for his case to be dismissed. Upon learning of the error, a judge issued a warrant for his arrest and Skinner was back in custody on Feb. 12.

He is being held in the Madison County jail in lieu of $75,000 bond. It was not immediately clear how the mistake occurred.

Skinner, who turns 60 on Thursday, had been in jail since May 2015, when he was released from Huntsville Hospital after recovering from a shotgun wound to the chest. He was left in critical condition following the April 19 shooting at his former mother-in-law's home on Bonnie Oaks Drive.

The Lacey's Spring resident had reportedly broken into the home through the back door armed with a handgun and a large knife. His estranged wife armed herself with a shotgun and, after making her mother run away, fired a shot at him in the garage of the home.

Police called to the scene shot Lisa Macpherson Skinner, 53, in the hip moments later...

Jefferson County sheriff's deputies on Tuesday responded to two separate burglaries in the area of the 200 block of Maple Way in Center Point. In both cases, said Chief Deputy Randy Christian, someone forced entry into the home and took electronics.

On one of the stolen laptops is a feature that uses a built in web cam to take a photo of anyone who tries to access the computer without the proper password. The photo is then sent to the owner's cell phone. The feature worked perfectly in this case, Christian said, and a photo of the person trying to use the stolen laptop was received.

Andrews' negligence lawsuit against Marriott hotels, in which she's seeking $75 million, is set for a civil trial beginning Monday.

In 2008 Andrews visited Nashville to cover a Vanderbilt University football game. In her lawsuit, filed two years later, Andrews accuses the hotel and others of allowing David Barrett, then 50, to book rooms next to hers, rig peepholes and film videos of her changing clothes.

Andrews is suing Marriott International, Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, Windsor Capital Group and Barrett. Her lawsuit accuses Marriott of negligence, infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a drug so powerful, police say it's turning users into zombies.

It's called spice, or K2, and it has caused a disturbing scene to play out across Louisville, over and over.

It's a constant strain on the police officers who have to deal with it.

"You all right? Yeah. What's going on," asked Sgt. Gary Kistner, with LMPD's 1st. Division.

On a weekday morning, Sgt. Kistner was talking to a suspected spice user. You can tell the user is completely out of it.

"You couldn't smell any alcohol and he had a glaze over his eyes and he was slurring and just unsteady," Sgt. Kistner explained.

“I turned my head and I saw some creamy white thighs and ankles,” witness Tod Brilliant tells the New York Daily News. “And I said, ‘That’s a naked man'.”

Nashville airport spokeswoman Shannon Sumrall tells the Tennessean the man has tried similar stunts at the airport on a “handful” of other occasions. But this is the first time he’s made it this far into the terminal, she says. He was taken into custody by police shortly after entering the terminal.

Airport officials say mental illness may be a factor...

Louisville man won a thousand dollars on a Kentucky lotto scratch off ticket. But when he tried to cash it in, someone was watching and not only took the ticket but almost took his life.

"He was just like, 'mom, I just hit it big, I hit the lottery for a thousand dollars.' And I am like wow," said Patricia Manning, mother of shooting victim.

Manning went from "wow" to "oh no" shortly after her son won $1,000 on a scratch off ticket.

"Then I heard some yells and then I heard the gunshot," Manning said.

Manning was on the phone with her son and said the gunshot she heard was a bullet going into his back.

"He shot twice and hit him once," explained Manning.

He survived, but had to get more than a dozen staples in his stomach where the bullet exited his body.

"He pulled the ticket out of his pocket and he throw (sic) it on the ground and said, 'you didn't have to shoot me,'" Manning said.

Here's what media can't do in this trial: Audio recording with cellphones, or pictures of any kind during the trial (only recesses).

Andrews in the pale pink

Andrews' attorney delivering opening statement. Says hotel employee should've used common sense, not told stalker where Andrews was staying.

Randy Kinnard, Andrews' attorney, says hotel missed many red flags in allowing Michael Barrett to book a room next to hers.

First witness in the trial will be Marriott employee who took Barrett's call, asking for a room next to Andrews. She relayed info.

The doors are on a corner, so they are basically right next to each other, sort of L-shape.

While Andrews was gone on Sept. 4, 2008, Barrett "went out into the hall while she was gone and removed the peephole device," Kinnard says.

Kinnard now trying to show the harm to Andrews is permanent; remember she's asking for $75 million damages.

Atty for defense says Barrett, stalker, will testify he was an executive who ran into financial difficulties, wanted to sell video for $$$.

Attorney says Barrett would call hotel to confirm reservation, would say it's for “Jeff, Scott and Erin Andrews”

Former Marriott employee (worked at reservation call center) says training said it was OK to confirm individuals were staying at a hotel.

Former Marriott Vanderbilt employee says it was policy not to give out room numbers.

Erin Andrews called her father one Thursday night in July 2009, sobbing and screaming, "I'm naked on the Internet," Steve Andrews told a jury Wednesday during the third day of his daughter's civil trial in Nashville.

Steve Andrews testified for about an hour on the emotional impact a nude video, taken of Erin Andrews by a stalker at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University in 2008, had on his daughter. He described Erin Andrews as a woman at the height of her career and popularity who became a woman afraid for her life, who hung blankets over her windows and grew fearful of crowds.

"She’s mad," he said. "She’s scared. She’s terrified. She’s depressed. She cries. She’s full of anxiety. She’s a very, very changed person. She’s not the girl that we used to know at all."

Erin Andrews cried quietly during the testimony, and her father at times choked on his words.

Peterpal Tutlam, facing sentencing for kidnapping and relentlessly assaulting two strangers in Antioch nearly four years ago, called heaven as his witness, denied responsibility and asked a judge for mercy.

Nashville Criminal Court Judge Cheryl Blackburn decided he deserved no mercy. She dismissed defense arguments that Tutlam's upbringing in South Sudan contributed to his actions.

So she gave him the maximum possible sentence during a hearing Wednesday: 150 years in prison.

A jury found Tutlam, 31, guilty of two counts each of especially aggravated kidnapping, especially aggravated robbery and aggravated rape on Jan. 8.

According to testimony during trial, Tutlam and three friends approached two strangers at an apartment complex and forced them into a car. They then drove to nearby ATMs and withdrew cash with the victims' cards, repeatedly punching and stabbing the two male victims along the way. The kidnappers forced the victims...

Ok they've got it fixed. Michael Barrett - Erin Andrews' stalker - testifying via his video deposition. Andrews has left courtroom.

Second video deposition of Barrett playing now. Taken in 2013. By this time, he was working at a meat distributor.

Barrett says he is a big fan of sports, that's how he knew of Andrews. "Probably a couple of years" before he started following her, he says

Barrett: "It was a pretty ill-conceived plan, obviously. To try and sell the video to somebody." Says he initially planned to do 1 video.

Barrett unscrewed peephole and then used tools to alter it so it didn't function, became like viewing through empty hole.

Barrett says there was a housekeeper in a nearby room cleaning when he replaced altered peephole, but she couldn't see him.

Barrett calls video “huge huge mistake in judgment and that I regret greatly.” Decided to do it to Andrews b/c she was trending on Yahoo.

He requested a room next to Erin Andrews. Doesn't recall if there was conversation with hotel staff about that.

Barrett says at check-in, room he requested next to Andrews was not ready. Neither was alternate room in another area. So he went to eat.

Barrett says he used house phone in restaurant to call front desk, asked: “Could I have Erin Andrews room?”

When he was transferred, screen on phone displayed her room number. He went to 10th floor, room next door being cleaned, requested that one.

Barrett said he could hear Andrews on phone in room next to him. Heard her door close, saw her leave, went to alter peephole.

Laywer: "Did you have any indication whatsoever she knew you were there?" Barrett: "No." Stood outside room in Nashville hotel for minutes.

Barrett says conscience got hold of him during prior filming of Erin Andrews at Ohio hotel - that video is six seconds long.

He took 4.5 minutes of video at the Nashville hotel to get enough to sell, then figured “yeah, enough’s enough," Barrett testifies.

Barrett says hotel staff never sought proof he knew Andrews, no one told him about policy prohibiting adjoining rooms at 1 person's request.

We're taking a lunch break. Judge Hamilton Gayden says we'll go late tonight - past 5 at least.

Sounds like Erin Andrews will be plaintiff's last witness. Her mom also expected to testify this afternoon.

Perhaps showing the pace of this testimony, someone is sleeping in the courtroom audience. This is why I have coffee at lunch.

Barrett says he recorded video of about 10 women in hotels, not including the incident in Nashville with Erin Andrews.

Barrett says no one at Marriott gave him Andrews' room number. He previously said he got it off phone display.

ESPN told her she had to do an interview. She chose Oprah, b/c Oprah is a crime victim and she could do full show.

Erin Andrews broke out in huge rash in middle of taping Oprah in mid-Aug 2009. Mom and dad were there encouraging her from front row.

My legal analysts at @LieffCabraser & @bonelaw weigh key witnesses in #ErinAndrews case. Jury will have it Friday. http://tnne.ws/1oSNkLU

A jury could begin deliberations Friday in Erin Andrews' civil lawsuit against a Nashville hotel owner and operator.

Andrews is suing West End Hotel Partners, the owner of the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University; Windsor Capital Group, the management company; and her stalker, Michael David Barrett, for $75 million. The television personality says in court filings that the hotel and staff allowed Barrett to book a room next to hers, giving him access to film her through a peephole while she was in Nashville covering a Vanderbilt football game in September 2008.

The jury will weigh whether those companies and Barrett are liable. If jurors find the companies at fault, then they will address what Andrews' damages — money award — should be.

The defense's last witness was former NFL player Jesse Palmer, who worked on ESPN's Thursday night college football crew with Andrews in 2008 and 2009. He said he was amazed at Andrews' on-air performance at her first game back after the videos were leaked, calling her a professional. He also said she was subject to sexual comments before the videos were leaked, and said she had additional security after the incident.

Nashville attorneys Mark Chalos, with Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, and Susan Neal Dickerson, with Bone McAllester Norton, have been separately analyzing the case for The Tennessean.

They weighed in on what jurors may think of key witnesses presented in the nine-day trial:

Dickerson: “There is absolutely nobody better to speak to the effect this has had on her than herself. Her testimony was emotional and powerful, and I thought she effectively stood up to cross-examination by the defense. I think the defense tactic of trying to blame her as a victim by pointing out her continued success, that doesn’t diminish at all the impact this has had on her.” Dickerson said Andrews’ testimony will come into play as jurors weigh how much money to award.

Here we go. Closings starting now. Bruce Broillet for Erin Andrews' case.

Says hotel should have "cut off the snake at the head" by not telling Barrett that Andrews was staying there.

"Right after that, on Sept 2, he called back the hotel...that's when he said ... I’m requesting that I be put next to Erin Andrews."

Broillet points out: Manager who was supposed to call Erin Andrews and tell her about request has not testified. Jury can consider that.

Broillet also notes the manager who inserted notation "do not move" on Barrett's room reservation next to Andrews' did not testify.

The documents describe the plight of a Puerto Rican woman who told authorities she had been tricked into working as a prostitute in Louisiana for about two weeks despite begging her handlers to release her.

The woman said she was in a dire financial situation in June when she agreed to work with an acquaintance she had kept up with on Facebook.

The acquaintance, Ana del sur Couvertier, had been posting photos of cash and expensive cars and told the woman “she could make a lot of money” if she would travel to New Orleans...

The victim told authorities that Guadalupe-Ortiz, known as “La Flaca,” quickly took away her purse, promising to return it after she “finished the week.”

Guadalupe-Ortiz and her boyfriend, identified in the search warrant only as Antonio, then drove the woman to “rural trailer parks,” ...

The filings do not make clear whether the woman then escaped or was released.

Marc Dedman of @SpicerRudstrom delivering defense closing argument. First thanks jurors for their service.

Dedman vaguely addresses tactic we saw of showing Erin Andrews was still successful after the nude videos were leaked: "It wasn’t to say this incident benefited her. The purpose of that was to say it was not a significant injury."

That argument still gets to the same point that her success means she deserves less money; she's not as damaged as she claims.

Dedman says Kim Brown, Vanderbilt psychologist, said Andrews' mild PTSD is treatable and would cost only about $5,000.

A suspect in a Tuscumbia homicide was apprehended Friday night after a police pursuit that entered Tennessee and ended with him crashing his vehicle into a patrol car.

The Lawrence County, Tenn. Sheriff's Office said Benjamin Owen Young, 28, of Florence crashed a stolen vehicle into a Loretto police officer's patrol unit causing the suspect's vehicle to flip and come to a rest on its top.

The pursuit of the suspect began around Patton Island Bridge in the Muscle Shoals area and stretched into Tennessee via Chisolm Road/Highway 13 and eventually onto Highway 227 in Lawrence County, Tenn. at around 6:15 p.m.

Young was arrested and transported to the Lawrence County Detention Center where he is being held without bond for multiple charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, reckless endangerment, and evading arrest.

Police say Young was also operating a stolen vehicle out of Florence.

She got all of her belongings out of the car and pointed a gun at him, saying he was not going to leave until the Sheriff’s Department arrived. The reporting deputy noted that the man was arrested for domestic violence on Monday.

OK, so he’d already been arrested Monday, posted bail, then thought he was about to get hitched? That’s how I read it. And just a wild guess, but I’m betting the victim of his domestic violence offense was the girlfriend. But he saw nothing amiss with this scenario.

The championship games of the state basketball tournament at the Macon Centreplex were played on goals that were not regulation, Georgia High School Association executive director Gary Phillips confirmed (http://highschoolsports.blog.ajc.com/2016/03/05/state-championship-games-played-on-non-regulation-baskets)

Quote
The stanchions that support the baskets were positioned a foot farther back off the baseline, meaning free throws were attempted from 16 feet, compared than the normal 15 feet. There was also less room for players to navigate under the basket along the baseline.

“The goals were the same distance into the court at both ends of the floor,” Phillips said in a statement posted on the GHSA’s website. “The playing conditions were exactly the same for both teams on the court and for all of the 14 championship games that were played. So I can’t see any reason we would consider changing the outcomes.

“Only one coach even mentioned a possible problem, and my basketball staff watched the games closely and did not notice any appreciable effect on the shooting or the play of any of the teams. Some of the teams even shot extremely well from both the floor and the free throw line. But, overall, it  looked like  typical championship play.

“While this certainly was not an ideal situation or one that we wanted to happen, we think the conditions were fair for all the teams. And, more importantly, it was the same for all the teams. We have plans to make sure this never happens again, but we have no plans to change anything that happened this week in Macon.”

Westlake boys coach Darron Rogers said before the Class AAAAAA championship game that his team had not been made aware of the baskets’ position before warmups. Pebblebrook coach George Washington was aware.

Only one team that played in the first four games Saturday–Greenforest Christian boys–shot better than 40 percent from the floor. The eight teams in the first four games shot 129 of 232 (55.6 percent) from the free-throw line.

Macon no sense: Hoops for state title tilts were wrong. #GHSA #whoanellie http://bit.ly/1ROPDJv

Quote
From the state where the flagship university once offered a class in basketball that posed the exam question, “How many points is a 3-point shot worth?”, comes now another hoops stumper: How far from the rim is the free-throw line?

At every level of basketball above the kiddie leagues, the answer is supposed to be, “Fifteen feet.” In the 14 high school state championship games staged over the weekend at the Macon Centreplex, the answer was …

Not 15 feet.

On Sunday, the Georgia High School Association offered this tepid mea culpa:

“Stories have circulated that the goals were set up in an incorrect position for the State Basketball Championship games this past weekend at the Macon Centerplex. While it does appear that the goals were not placed far enough into the playing area, the GHSA has no plans to change any of the results of the seven girls and seven boys title games played.”

ICYMI: Juror who awarded Erin Andrews $55 million in civil case says ruling sends message: http://tnne.ws/1p3eqzU  @tennessean #erinandrews

Quote
After an emotional trial centered on nude videos secretly taken of Erin Andrews, a Nashville jury on Monday awarded the television broadcaster $55 million, to be paid by her stalker, a local hotel's management group and its owner (deeper pockets).

The trial often had Andrews in tears and she looked jury members in the eye as they entered the courtroom a final time to deliver their decision after seven hours of deliberation. Minutes later, after the verdict was read, she wiped away tears as she hugged and thanked some of them individually. A court staffer brought her a fresh box of tissues while her parents embraced her legal team.

Jurors found Barrett 51 percent at fault in the case, which would mean he would have to pay 51 percent of the $55 million award. The jury said the hotel owner, West End Hotel Partners, and the hotel management company, Windsor Capital Group, also were at fault and were on the hook for the remaining 49 percent [cuts award to under 27.5 million.]

Mark Chalos, a Nashville attorney who has been analyzing the Andrews case for The Tennessean, said the decision showed "the jury realized that Ms. Andrews is the victim here and that Nashvillians recognize an injustice when they see it."

One juror reached by The Tennessean said Andrews’ emotional testimony during the trial was key in deciding the case and understanding the trauma the videos caused. But Terry Applegate, 62, also said jurors considered the message they could send to the hotel industry.

“I’m happy with the result,” Applegate said. “I think it’s important the hotel industry or any public institution that has patrons coming through their doors needs to be aware, and make their security and privacy of utmost concern.”

"I felt comfortable saying those words because I was Hulk Hogan and I was just embellishing," Bollea told the jury.

But as Terry Bollea, now a 62-year-old father of two, he was wounded.

"This is still tearing me up," he said. "I'm not the same person I was since this craziness happened."

At the heart of Gawker's First Amendment argument is the notion that Bollea, as Hulk Hogan, had essentially surrendered his right to privacy. By talking about his sexual exploits in detail before large audiences, he had made it a matter of public concern and fair game for the press.

Drilling down on this line of argument, Sullivan noted that although Bollea said he was embarrassed by the video, he never asked interviewers to stay away from the topic. In fact, he pointedly ignored his publicist's advice to direct questions away from the sex tape and toward his latest wrestling endeavor.

In an interview with reporters, Bollea attorney David Houston called the publicist's counsel "rather impossible advice."

"It wasn't a matter of choice," he said. If Bollea was going to promote himself on Stern's show, he had to play along with the host's antics.

On the stand, Bollea tried to draw a distinction between Hulk Hogan's public boasting and his expectation of privacy in a friend's bedroom.

Update on the @VanderbiltU student killed in a terrorist attack while in Israel on a school trip: http://tnne.ws/1pewzeL

Quote
Vanderbilt University graduate student Taylor Force was stabbed to death Tuesday during a school trip to Israel, and U.S. officials say he was the victim of a terrorist attack.

University Chancellor Nick Zeppos announced in a letter that Force, a 28-year-old student at Vanderbilt's Owen Graduate School of Management, had been killed in a "stabbing attack" in Tel Aviv. Other students, faculty and staff on the trip were not hurt, Zeppos said.

Ten other people were wounded in the attack in Jaffa, an ancient port city that is now part of Tel Aviv, according to an early account from Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld. The attacker, who was identified as a Palestinian, was shot and killed, Rosenfeld said.

Vice President Joe Biden, who was in Israel on Tuesday, described the stabbing as an "act of terror" on his Twitter account.

U.S. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement that he was "horrified and saddened by the senseless attack that took the life of American student Taylor Force and wounded others.”

“This is a tragic loss for his family, friends and the Vanderbilt community, and we send our sincere condolences to all of them in their time of grief," Corker said. "I join other officials from the U.S. in condemning this terrorist act that can never be justified or tolerated.”

Force's trip was meant to focus on global entrepreneurship. Force was expected to "share his insights and knowledge with start-ups in Israel," Zeppos said.

The U.S. Army veteran enrolled at Vanderbilt University's Owen Graduate School of Management in 2015 to earn his MBA. A family member and a close friend told The Tennessean that Force hoped the education would offer an opportunity to put the discipline he had honed in the military and as an Eagle Scout to work in a new setting.

Maybe he would help out with the family business, or maybe he would work with veterans like himself who were making the transition to civilian life. Whatever steps he took, people close to him agreed, success was within the 28-year-old's reach.

But on Tuesday, during a school trip to Israel with his Vanderbilt classmates, a flurry of unexpected violence cut that bright future short.

A former D'Iberville football standout has been accused along with three others of robbing a pizza-delivery driver at gunpoint.

Jacquelle Green was arrested late Thursday night on an armed robbery charge, D'Iberville police Capt. Marty Griffin said.

Green was originally pulled over on Lamey Bridge Road about 10:30 p.m. after an officer noticed his vehicle was being driven erratically and without headlights, Griffin said.

During the traffic stop, Griffin said, officers received a call about a pizza-delivery driver being robbed after a delivery in the River's Edge Subdivision.

Griffin said evidence recovered from the stop led to the arrest of Green, 18, Alloyshious Bennett, 18, of Biloxi, and two juveniles on charges of armed robbery.

Green, a standout on D'Iberville's football team during his prep career, signed a scholarship in February with the University of Texas-San Antonio.

Frank Wilson, UTSA's new coach and a former LSU assistant, released this statement regarding Green's status: "We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information."

Read the full story on the prison riot at Holman Correctional early yesterday morning: http://ow.ly/Zo3q6

Quote
William C. Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore remains on lockdown this morning after an overnight riot that left a guard and the warden stabbed.

The injuries weren't life-threatening, Alabama Department of Corrections spokesman Bob Horton said this morning and the riot was brought under control about 5 a.m.

The first assault happened about 9:15 p.m. Friday when a correctional officer responded to a fight between two inmates in one of the prison dorms. The officer was stabbed when he tried to detain one of the inmates involved in the fight, Horton said. Sources tell NorthEscambia.com that the officer was stabbed nine times.

When Warden Carter Davenport and other officers entered the dorm to assess the situation, Davenport was also stabbed. He remained at the prison, and was treated on-site for injuries, Horton said.

The injured corrections officer was taken to a hospital. Both are expected to be OK.

After the assaults, Horton said, inmates gained access to a hallway just outside the housing unit and started a fire.

One man posted this on Facebook: "Attention: We need yall help here at Holman Correction Facility Prison. The police down here beating on and jus treating us any kind way. We down here fighting for are lifes. Please contact the News, Newspaper, Radio station. NCAAP. Help please."

Zannice Houston posted this on her Facebook page: "Please pray for my son in Holman Prison. A riot lord Jesus."

ST. PETERSBURG — He was supposed to be Gawker's star witness, but now he won't be taking the stand at all.

On Wednesday, Tampa radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge Clem — his legal name — wriggled out of a courthouse appearance by exercising his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. In doing so, he ensured he would not have to testify in the trial of a lawsuit that revolves around a sex tape he made in 2007, featuring his then-wife Heather Clem and the former wrestler Hulk Hogan.

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, sued Gawker in 2012 after the website published a one-minute and 41-second excerpt of the video, which Clem recorded using his home security system. Bollea is demanding $100 million in damages.

Police have charged the estranged wife of Van Cliburn piano competition winner Vadym Kholodenko with capital murder after she was found stabbed and her daughters were found dead last week in Benbrook, southwest of Fort Worth. (http://crimeblog.dallasnews.com/2016/03/wife-of-van-cliburn-winning-pianist-charged-with-capital-murder-for-death-of-daughters.html)

Quote
Authorities believe Sofya Tsygankova, 31, killed her daughters and stabbed herself before her husband was scheduled to pick up his children for a regular visit. She is recovering at a hospital, where she’s being held in lieu of $2 million bail, Benbrook police announced Monday.

“We have probable cause, reason to believe that she committed the homicides,” Benbrook police Cmdr. David Babcock said, adding that police collected physical evidence at the scene.

Kholodenko, a Ukrainian pianist who performs with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, called 911 Thursday morning after he found his daughters dead in their beds and their mother in an “extreme state of distress,” police said.

Police said Tsygankova had been held at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for a “mental evaluation” before she was arrested. They said she will be transported to the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department when she’s medically cleared.

He used the word "love" another seven times, in reference to things he loved about Mason, or things he loved to do.

Bentley mentions her breasts one time.

Oh, that's the same number of times he mentioned his wife, Dianne.

Gov. Bentley apologized this week for the things he said on the recordings, saying they were a mistake. He denied he had a sexual relationship with Mason.

'There's nothing left': Crew demolishes wrong home

The demolition crew’s intended target was another duplex, one block over

Company said ‘it’s not a big deal’ (http://www.kentucky.com/news/nation-world/national/article68216222.html)

Quote
Lindsay Diaz received a frantic call from Alan Cutter's wife, ABC affiliate WFAA reported. Their duplex was gone, she said.

Gone?

Disbelieving, Diaz hurried to her house.

"I pull up, and - sure enough - it's gone," she told WFAA. "There's nothing left."

Earlier that day, a demolition crew had arrived to tear the house down, KTVT reported. But it was all a mistake: Their intended target was another duplex one block over, a house bearing the same number on a different street.

Diaz and Cutter's duplex occupied 7601 and 7603 Calypso Drive. The house that was supposed to be demolished was left standing, at 7601 Cousteau Drive.

Diaz said when she tried talking to the president of the demolition company, Billy L. Nabors Demolition, he was unsympathetic.

"I didn't believe he was telling me this," she told KTVT. "I was hoping for an apology - 'I'm sorry my company did this, we'll make it better,' and instead he's telling me how the insurance is going to handle it, and telling me that it's going to be a nasty fight."

An employee also texted her Google Maps screenshots pointing to her duplex as 7601 Cousteau.

Nabors CEO George Gomez told WFAA that the situation was "not a big deal" on Thursday. Rowlett City Manager Brian Funderburk disagreed.

Nabors Demolition: "We could wreck the world."

Brandon turkey hunter shot in face by hunting partner http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2016/03/28/turkey-hunter-shot-face-hunting-partner/82352206/ …

Quote
A hunting trip that went dangerously wrong ended with a hunter being shot in the face and hospitalized.

According to Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks' Lt. Chris Reed, Curtis L. Entrekin, 63, of Madison and and Charles G. Childs, 69, of Brandon were turkey hunting in Carroll County Friday morning. Reed said the two were together but had separated at some point during the morning. Childs was returning to the area where the two parted when he was shot.

"The victim was walking along a logging road up a hill when the shooter saw what he thought was a turkey," Reed said.

When Entrekin realized what he had done, Reed said the man rendered aid and called for help.

"He was airlifted to UMC (University of Mississippi Medical Center)," Reed said. "They removed 26 pellets from his face and neck area. He may have some damage to his left eye."

Although the incident appears to be accidental, Reed said MDWFP officers are still working on the case.

"It's very early in the investigation," Reed said. "We're still looking into it."

Part of that investigation includes taking and testing a blood sample of the shooter for narcotics and alcohol, Reed said.

Reed said it appears to be a case of a hunter mistaking another for game. In a similar incident in December, a hunter shot and killed his son in the Delta National Forest after mistaking him for a wild hog.

A Fulton man was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of his sixth drunken-driving offense after police said he was driving a lawnmower recklessly in the city, according to a news release.

Officers responded to Jefferson City Road near Claymine Drive at about 6:20 p.m. after people reported a man — later identified as Jeremy S. Cochran, 44, of Fulton — riding the mower. Police attempted to arrest Cochran, the release said, but he resisted.



Officers eventually apprehended him on suspicion of driving while intoxicated/chronic offender, tampering with physical evidence and third-degree assault on a law enforcement officer. He was taken to the Callaway County Jail and was being held on a $15,000 cash-only bond.

Maj. Roger Rice said officers had to fight with Cochran to arrest him...

Lisa Renee Bishop, 25, of Leesburg turned herself in Wednesday on a charge of second-degree theft of property.

Investigators allege that Bishop, who worked at Collinsville Healthcare and Rehabilitation, had stolen the hydrocodone by claiming to administer the medication at a much higher dosage than other nurses at the facility, but then failing to document actually administering the medication. A routine audit of the facility's drugs found the discrepancy.

When confronted with the information, Bishop allegedly admitted stealing between one and five pills, according to the Attorney General's Office.

Documentation from the audit showed about 90 pills missing...

Officials: Five killed in sightseeing helicopter crash in Pigeon Forge http://ow.ly/10hSnk

Quote
PIGEON FORGE — A sightseeing helicopter crashed on a wooded ridge behind a Pigeon Forge outlet mall Monday afternoon, killing all five people on board and sparking a fire that burned into the night.

"There's a little bit of the tail fin of the helicopter and that's about all that's left," said Pigeon Forge Police Chief Jack Baldwin. "That and the console."

Residents who live near the crash site described a puttering noise coming from the aircraft's rotor as it went down at about 3:30 p.m.

Witnesses heard screams from the wreckage, and saw one man roll out of the helicopter before he died.

The Bell 206 helicopter belonged to a touring company out of Sevierville...

Shawn Matern was inside his house when he heard a loud boom. He said he saw the helicopter on fire and a man "more or less rolling out" of the aircraft.

"He was on fire … and rolling around," Matern said. "My neighbor actually went across the river to actually check on him.

"A few minutes later he was gone."

The neighbor, who said he was an EMT, declined to speak to reporters because the event was too traumatic.

Matern said he heard another person screaming for help, but he or she was trapped inside the helicopter.

"There was nothing you could do for them, you know, because they were too mangled up in there," he said. "They were burning alive."

Remember the Memphis player who stole an Auburn football? http://sec.news/22cRuen

Quote
Memphis football player responsible for tackling an Auburn equipment manager and stealing a game ball following the Birmingham Bowl has been allowed to return to the program for its Pro Day.

Reggis Ball, who stole the ball and bragged about it on social media following the 31-10 loss to Auburn, will participate in Pro Day activities at Memphis after being booted from the team and disavowed from the program.

Why the change in heart to allow Ball to participate in Pro Day? Turns out no one would let him participate in Pro Day activities at other schools...

Accused Decatur woman wants teacher-student sex law ruled unconstitutional http://ow.ly/10rFhp

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cfh1oURUUAAdHNR.jpg)

Quote
Alabama teacher charged with having a sexual relationship with a student is challenging the constitutionality of the state's law banning school employee sex with students under the age of 19.

Carrie Cabri Witt, 42, a history, psychology and social studies teacher at Decatur High School, was arrested in March for having a sexual relationship with two male students, both of whom were 17 at the time of the alleged acts. She also coached girls' golf and junior varsity cheerleaders, according to the school's website.

Witt's attorneys, Robert Tuten and Nick Heatherly, filed a challenge to the constitutionality of the school employee law on Monday and request for dismissal of the charge against her, according to Morgan County court records.

The motion by Witt's attorneys is virtually the same challenge to the law recently filed by attorneys for Joe Bradley Petrey, 28, of Northport, who was charged in August under the school employee sex law for having sex with an 18-year-old female student.

The motions in both the Petrey and Witt cases say teachers' 14th Amendment equal protection rights to not be treated differently than other classes of citizens is being violated by the state law enacted by the Alabama Legislature in 2010. Other adults having consensual sex with 16-year-olds do not face criminal prosecution, the lawyers contend.

Witt's attorneys stated the school employee sex law "should be an attempt by the Alabama legislature to protect students from being victimized by teachers who abuse authority and influence to coerce or fraudulently obtain consent for sex acts," the motion states. "As applied to this defendant, however, the statute impedes (her) fundamental privacy right to engage in private acts of non-injurious, consensual sex without interference from the State."

Louisiana woman run over by police vehicle while sunbathing (http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2016/04/louisiana_woman_run_over_by_po.html)

Lindsey Gordon, 24, suffered a shattered pelvis and internal bleeding in the Thursday afternoon incident, her mother, Suzanne Baggett, told WVUE.  She is in stable condition after undergoing multiple surgeries.

Grand Isle Police Assistant Chief Norris Esponge was patrolling the beach in a marked police truck, a Ford F-150, when he drove the vehicle over the woman, according to the report. Gordon's friend was able to get out of the way.

Esponge is on administrative leave pending the outcome of a Louisiana State Police investigation.

"I just don't see how he could not see them laying there," Baggett told the news station.

A relative of the friend who escaped injured said the woman heard Gordon screaming and was able to get out of the way.

"Lindsey was being rolled under the truck, and flipping under the truck and she screamed to get him to stop," she said.

TALLAHASSEE — Last school year, as it's well known, the quarterback of Florida State University's football team was investigated after a classmate accused him of rape. A defensive end was accused of filming the act; a cornerback, of looking on.

So when the university announced in February the launch of a new, mandatory leadership course for freshmen athletes, promising to help them "make the most of their college years and grow into well-rounded adults," it was not surprising that one of the first courses would discuss sexual assault.

"We're shaping leaders and building lifelong ambassadors for Florida State University," said Ashton Henderson, student development coordinator and senior academic adviser for Student-Athlete Academic Services, who leads the course and helped design it.

But it's unclear what exactly Florida State is telling its student athletes about rape.

The university refused to let a reporter attend the hourlong class, or any of the 11 classes held on Tuesday evenings in a building off the football field.

A public records request filed with FSU turned up no hand-outs, PowerPoints or other materials concerning sexual assault used to teach the lesson.

The school did, however, disclose that the guest instructor for the assault class was David Perry, the chief of police for FSU.

Perry's role in handling the Jameis Winston case has been questioned, and some are asking why law enforcement was leading the discussion on rape, rather than a survivor or victim's advocate.

Perry said it was "inappropriate" to ask about his credentials to teach the course, which also dealt with drug and alcohol use.

"The FSU police authority is responsible for investigating complaints about sexual assault, so it's only natural we'd be asked to talk about those crimes and others involving our students," Perry said.

Jessica Luther, an FSU alumna and author of Unsportsmanlike Conduct: College Football and the Politics of Rape, said she had serious concerns that the police chief was the person chosen to address sexual assault with athletes.

"I worry that what they're going to learn is to call a lawyer when something bad happens, instead of changing the culture in which this stuff happens."

LHSAA bans walk-up music for high school baseball, softball teams over complaints of ‘explicit content’: http://bit.ly/1NjqsLp

Quote
LHSAA informed its schools last week that it is prohibiting walk-up music for the remainder of the regular season and the postseason in both sports based on complaints about the content of the songs used by some schools.

“(LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine) as grown weary of the complaints regarding the explicit content of music,” LHSAA media coordinator Jacob Doyle said in a text. “Until member schools screen their music and guarantee a family environment, which should be promoted, walk-up music will not be permitted.”

By the end of last week some local coaches said they had not seen the memo. Others, including Zachary baseball coach Jesse Cassard, had

“It really doesn’t matter to me one way or the other,” Cassard said. “We’ve stopped doing it, but I know other schools do and they like doing it.

“Obviously, you need to screen the music played. But this raises some other questions. Who enforces this? And what about playing music in between innings or when a coach visits the mound? What happens with that?”

UPDATE: Ex-Nashville airport official sentenced to prison in fraud case http://tnne.ws/1N4nHD3  via @tennessean #nashville

Quote
Former Metro Nashville Airport Authority official John T. Howard was sentenced on Monday to two years in federal prison and ordered to pay $1.4 million in restitution stemming from charges of money laundering, wire fraud and accepting a bribe.

Howard’s sentencing comes one week after an airport contractor who allegedly joined in on the scheme was charged with conspiracy. Tim Rucker was charged with conspiracy and the lesser crimes of wire fraud and money laundering on April 4.

According to the information filed by the government, Howard filed work orders and approved payments for Rucker and other contractors to do work that was never ultimately performed.

Howard’s attorneys, Ed Yarbrough and Alex Little, sought one day in prison and three years of supervised release. The U.S. Attorney’s Office asked for between 57 and 71 years based on the federal sentencing guidelines.

An apparently drunk man identified in a video as a UTC student stumbled out of a Chattanooga bar, and drove his car into pedestrian areas on the university's campus.

Dylan Buck, 20, was arrested and booked for driving under the influence, striking fixtures on the road, possession of a controlled substance and a handful of other offenses.

Matthew Herring, a UTC student who posted the video to YouTube, said he called the police after leaving the bar and saw that Buck was attempting to drive.

He began following Buck and continued to call the police for 40 minutes, he said, as Buck drove onto the campus and entered pedestrian areas in his vehicle.

"It was definitely scary to see him completely crush a hand railing by the library and go down six or seven steps into the main walkway area," Herring said. "His car was a manual so he stalled it at least 20 times but kept going forward."

Police eventually apprehended Buck after he "plowed through campus, nearly t-boning another vehicle when running a stop sign."

Students were not affected when a man showed up in underwear claiming there were Smurfs inside a fire alarm at William Blount High School on Tuesday, according to authorities.

Around 8:40 a.m., the high school's resource officer was notified of a disturbance in the vocational building on campus, according to a Blount County Sheriff's Office news release.

Within a minute, the resource officer was at the scene and took the man into custody; he was not named in a news release.

Witnesses said the man, 32, wearing just underwear and socks, attempted to tear the fire alarm off the wall, claiming there were Smurfs inside the device.

The man was taken to Blount Memorial Hospital for a mental evaluation. Parents of William Blount High School students were notified of the incident by the school messaging system.

The Sheriff's Office is continuing an investigation. Possible charges are pending.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A full-time college student--scraping to get by--stumbled upon a wallet holding thousands of dollars in cash. Little did he know he was holding the wallet of an NBA star.

The 18-year-old who found the wallet is Dekeevin Johnson. He cleans buses for Cline Tours by day. And by night, he hits the books as he works toward a degree. A few weeks ago, he made a discovery that could have changed his life.

"I came back in and I cleaned the bus that he was on and while I was going down the aisle of the bus, I found the wallet sitting up under the seat," Johnson explained.

Inside the wallet was $2,000 in cash and a top-of-the-line credit card. It also contained an I.D.

"I took it into our office and I gave it to them," he said. "That's how I was taught...to give everything back, like you would want somebody to give to you."

The wallet didn't belong to any normal tourist. The cash inside was earned on the NBA courts by Spurs superstar David West.

So far, Johnson hasn't heard from West, but to his own mother, he has the heart of a champion.

• After a woman was fired from a Shannon manufacturing plant, she walked out to the production line, grabbed a handful of components and threw them at a male employee. When she was told she had to leave the property, the woman “sucker punched” a female employee, hitting her in the left eye. The victim had scratches on her neck and bite marks on her left hand, along with a swollen eye, when deputies arrived.

This is why firing is best done over the phone.

Also today, someone believes the cops are spying on them, there are mysterious gunshots in Nettleton, and the epidemic of unlocked vehicles continues unabated.

Another person who saw the aftermath of the shooting that took former New Orleans Saints player Will Smith’s life April 9 described the scene in an interview with The Advocate, saying he was surprised how calmly alleged shooter Cardell Hayes was acting at the scene.

That witness, who asked not to be named, said he rushed to the scene of Smith’s killing moments after hearing a crash and gunshots. Hayes had crashed his Hummer into the rear of Smith’s Mercedes SUV, setting off a confrontation that ended with Smith’s fatal shooting and Smith's wife suffering a bullet wound to each leg. The witness said he arrived after Hayes had placed a gun — still smoking — on the hood of the Hummer.

Of all he saw, what most struck the bystander was how calm Hayes was, making eye contact with the bystander and even taking a moment to speak with an older man wearing a blue button-down shirt who approached him.

“It was like he had nothing to fear,” the witness said.

“The Pit,” Minden High School’s iconic football stadium, officially called W. W. Williams Stadium, has been condemned.

The home side of the stadium, built in the 1950s, has moved 3 or 4 feet and was dubbed by engineers as a “tragedy waiting to happen.”

“There are some drainage issues,” Minden head football coach Spencer Heard said. “Some of the pillars got washed out and the stadium shifted. You don’t want to get 2,000 people on the thing and have it collapse.”

The old gymnasium, located behind the home side of the football stadium, has also been condemned. It was built in 1937 and housed locker rooms and the weight room.

The families of graduating seniors have been informed next month’s ceremony will take place in the new gym.

“There is a strong tradition there. Football has played in that spot for a 100 years or more,” Heard said.

Crimson Tide’s 2016 season is full of home games that are expected to draw large crowds. “The Pit” was supposed to host Southwood, North Webster. Benton. North DeSoto and then homecoming.

WKYT-27 and WYMT-57: A southeastern Kentucky school board chairman who was under investigation for perjury is now accused of having someone else take a GED exam for him.

The investigation involving Dexter Smith, head of the Knox County School Board, was launched a few weeks ago after allegations surfaced that Smith did not meet the requirements to hold elected office.

Smith does not have a valid high school diploma. He says that is an oversight and he received an online equivalent, which is not recognized by the state.

"I have a transcript and a diploma," Smith told WYMT-TV last month. "Then, when I was questioned about it, I went ahead and got the GED on top of it, so I have both. So, now I have a diploma, and the GED."

Two weeks ago, state police opened an investigation into a perjury charge because Smith signed a sworn statement that he met the qualifications to run for school board.

During that investigation, state police say they confirmed another individual took the GED test for Smith when he went to the Jackson County Adult Education Center for the exam. An employee there took the exam for Smith, police say.

RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - It's been a tough five months for the family of a fallen Richmond police officer. Officer Daniel Ellis was shot and killed during a robbery investigation in November (http://www.wkyt.com/content/news/Church-Jay-Leno-surprises-fallen-Richmond-officers-widow-376868901.html)

Quote
Jay Leno was in Richmond Saturday night, joking around with Father Jim Sichko like they were old friends. The night of laughter raised money for the church and honored law enforcement. Katie Ellis attended the event.

"It's bittersweet, you know? I'd rather just be sitting on the couch with Daniel, but that can't happen," said Ellis. "So, I feel like the community is really healing with me."

This is the last year for the fundraiser called "An Evening Among Friends." Former talk show host and comedian Jay Leno came to Richmond to help Father Jim raise money for the St. Mark Catholic Church and school, as well as the Officer Daniel Ellis Memorial Foundation.

"You know everybody thinks the world is such a terrible place, but there are more good people than there are bad people and we hear about the bad people. You know, it's like this police officer that was killed in the line of duty he was a good man," said Jay Leno.

The murder of Daniel Ellis hit very close to home for Father Jim Sichko and his parish. "Let's not forget the whole incident started at St. Mark," said Sichko. "A kindergarten teacher was robbed by that individual, that assailant. Daniel, Officer Ellis was coming to assist us."

Sichko surprised Ellis with an all-expense paid trip to Disney World for her and her three-year-old son, Luke. That wasn't the only surprise of the night. Leno surprised her with $10,000 for Luke's college fund.

"I'd like to see him go to college," said Leno. "Police officers don't make enough money anyway and when you lose the bread winner of the family, it's the saddest thing in the world."

"It is very surreal," Katie Ellis said. "We're just regular people that have unfortunately been put in this position and we lost Daniel and we're very honored that someone like Jay Leno would care just a little. It means the world."

It's something different every year," said Barnstable Brown, who is throwing the Derby Eve Gala for the 29th year with her twin sister, Priscilla Barnstable [The Doublemint Twins and daughter of a UK basketball player accused of point shaving].

"I don't ask these guests to get up onstage but they do every year and I think that's what makes this party so genuine. These performers want to give back," she said.

The celebrity-packed gala, known for its musical extravaganza, has raised and donated about $11.2 million to the Barnstable Brown Diabetes and Obesity Research Center at the University of Kentucky over the past nine years.

Barnstable Brown said her 2016 guest list also includes: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Kate Upton, Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney (who's plus-one could be fiance Lady Gaga – we're just speculating but you never know!), and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who plans to show up with a posse of Super Bowl Championship teammates.

World Champion alpine skier Lindsey Vonn and another gold medalist Olympian, Bode Miller, will also attend. Arrow actor Stephen Amell, who you'll soon see in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, and former model Elin Nordegren have accepted invites.

Everett L. Beauchamp IV, 32, was at The Penthouse Club on Bennington Avenue around 2:15 a.m. when one of six men at a bachelor’s party made an unwanted comment on Beauchamp’s Florida Gators gear, the Baton Rouge Police Department report says.

In response, Beauchamp picked up a stool at the valet entrance to the club and tried to assault the man who made the comment, but he was stopped.

Beauchamp threatened to get a weapon and walked to his vehicle to get a handgun, the report says, at which time the men drove away in their vehicle.

Beauchamp followed them in his 2013 Ford Raptor down College Drive onto I-10 eastbound, the report says. The men exited at Essen Lane, only to get back onto I-10 going westbound, at which point Beauchamp tried to ram his vehicle into theirs.

Beauchamp followed them onto the interstate and as they reached the I-10 westbound, I-12 eastbound loop Beauchamp opened fire on their vehicle, striking the vehicle once under the driver’s side taillight.

The men only lost Beauchamp after they exited the interstate at Dalrymple Drive, according to the report.

Shortly before 3 a.m. uniform patrolers found an impaired Beauchamp and his vehicle after he drove his truck into the LSU Lakes...

Beauchamp told police he had consumed between eight and 10 Corona beers, the report says. A breath test revealed that his blood alcohol level was 0.19.

Police found a Taurus .45 caliber handgun at the scene.

Beauchamp, 5010 Mancuso Lane Apt. 115, was booked into Parish Prison...

Television reporter and personality Erin Andrews has settled her lawsuit against a hotel owner and operator that allowed her stalker to secretly record her naked through a door peephole.

The terms of the agreement reached Monday morning are confidential.

"This litigation is over," said Randall Kinnard, a lawyer at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge in Nashville who represented Andrews. "Erin Andrews is satisfied with the settlement, the terms of which are confidential."

In March, a Nashville jury awarded the former ESPN reporter $55 million. The jury said Andrews' stalker, Michael David Barrett, was responsible for $28 million of that and the hotel owner and operator, West End Hotel Partners and Windsor Capital Group, were on the hook for the remaining $27 million.

The settlement was reached just hours before the lawyers were expected to return to Circuit Judge Hamilton Gayden's courtroom to discuss an issue that could have left the hotel companies on the hook to pay even more.

Kinnard, in court filings, had asked the judge to apply rules of joint and several liability. If Gayden ruled in Andrews' favor that those rules apply, that could have put the hotel companies on the hook for the whole $55 million.

Marc Dedman at Spicer Rudstrom in Nashville, who represented the hotel companies, did not immediately comment on the settlement.

A lawyer shot dead at home - his girlfriend admits she pulled the trigger and then dances, twirls and snaps her fingers in a strange police video. Was it self-defense or love gone bad? (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ryan-poston-murder-why-did-shayna-hubers-shoot-boyfriend-six-times)

Quote
How did things spiral so out of control between Ryan and his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, that she shot him to death -- insisting it was to protect herself?

"What was lost when your friend was shot and killed?" Van Sant asked Herren.

"He's the type of person that you want in your life," he replied. "Not just a friend, but a loving son, a protective, adoring older brother."

"He had three younger sisters that he absolutely adored," Herren continued.

Ryan's family was close-knit even though his parents divorced when he was little. He was extremely close to his father, Jay Poston. And when his mother remarried, to Peter Carter [who did a mean Michael Jackson impersonation back in the day], Ryan thought of him as a secondfather.

Ryan hoped Shayna had finally gotten the message when he told her he wasn't going to see her that weekend of Oct. 12, 2012. What he didn't tell her was that he had a date with a world class beauty, Audrey Bolte, Miss Ohio USA 2012, whom he also met on Facebook. But he did tell Wagner, a former beauty pageant contestant herself,who knew Bolte.

Ryan and Miss Ohio were supposed to meet at a bar that Friday night. But Shayna showed up at his condo, and Ryan never made it.

    Shayna Hubers to 911: He beat me and tried to carry me out of the house and I came back in to get my things and he was right in front of me and he reached down and grabbed the gun and I grabbed it out of his hand and pulled the trigger.

    911 operator: And how long ago did you shoot him?

    Shayna Hubers: I don't know, 15 ... 10, 15 minutes ... not even that long.

    911 operator: 10 or 15 minutes ago?

    Shayna Hubers: Yeah.

"Someone shooting someone and then waiting 15 minutes to call. That in itself was bizarre," said Lt. Dave Fornash, who, along with his partner, was the first to arrive on the scene.

    911 operator: I want you to go to your front door. I want you to open it up; walk outside the door with your hands in front of you.

    Shayna Hubers: OK, I will.

"If someone's wounded on the ground, someone that you love, wouldn't you ... attempt to resuscitate, to save, rather than shoot him?" Van Sant asked.

"Or call 911," the chief replied.

Instead, Shayna admitted she waited at least 10 minutes to call for help.

Prosecutor Michelle Snodgrass says Ryan was helpless.

"He laid there helpless and she walked over and shot him again and again and again. That's not self - defense," she explained.

    [Police video] Shayna Hubers: I knew he was gonna die or have a completely deformed face. He's very vain ... and wants to get a nose job; just that kinda person and I shot him right here ... I gave him his nose job he wanted.

"My jaw hit the floor. I said to myself, 'did she really say that?'" said Chief Birkenhauer.

Gardner was sent to the plane’s lavatory, where he passed out.

He told police he had two double shots of vodka at a bar in San Francisco’s airport before boarding the plane, but had no recollection of urinating on the plane. He suggested maybe someone spilled a drink on him in San Francisco, and that the smell of alcohol on his breath (11 hours after takeoff) was from his chewing gum.

Metro police on Tuesday released the 911 call made by Robert Ritchie better known as Kid Rock, after the singer discovered the body of his assistant Michael Sacha, 30, Monday in the driveway of his sprawling Nashville estate.

"I need an ambulance," Ritchie frantically tells a female dispatcher during the 11:32 a.m. phone call to Metro Nashville police and fire dispatch. "I think my assistant looks to be dead from a Polaris accident...There's a body lying next to it."

“Can you repeat the address? the dispatcher asks. "Your phone appears to be broken up."

At some point, an unidentified female gets on the line and says she and Richie were headed to the airport when they found Sacha.

Sacha is believed to have died after ferrying guests on the ATV to a cookout on Rock's Whites Creek estate to an Uber at the property's driveway around midnight Monday, Metro police said. He apparently lost control of the vehicle and crashed on his way back to the residence, police said.

In a statement, Rock said he is "beyond devastated."

Police seek 16-year-old in Music City Central shooting that injured four other teens.

Jerock Walker recalls the mob of chaos as the gunshots sliced through the noise of a busy afternoon at downtown Nashville's Music City Central.

Walker returned the next day to rally against violence at the site where the shooting left four teenagers injured, including one critically. The teen was listed in stable condition Tuesday morning. "I was shocked that they would just come and do that, with three hundred people right there, they’d just start shooting anywhere and everywhere," said the 16-year-old, who was at the bus station when shots rang out on Monday afternoon.

Along with Walker, the city tried to make sense Tuesday of one of the bloodiest days in Nashville in some time — particularly for teens and young adults.

Eight people were injured in two separate quadruple shootings in just a 14-hour period. Police believe four people also were shot at a Goodlettsville home during an unrelated argument over a rap song.

In the bus station shooting, police identified Demarcus Kavel Amos, 16, as the suspect and are seeking him on one count of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated assault. Police have yet to find the teen at his home and school and are seeking help in locating him.

The organization’s officers would then discuss the charges with the dean and decide whether they would like to proceed with either administrative action or a referral to a hearing panel.

Potential penalties include a letter of university reprimand, university probation, total probation or rescission of university registration.

Jefferson County assistant district attorney was arrested over the weekend in Shelby County.

Holly Jessica Clemente, 32, was arrested Sunday by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office, according to court and jail records. Clemente, who formerly worked for the county's public defender's office, now prosecutes violent crimes among other cases.

Deputies were called to the family's home on Sunday, where Clemente was arrested on a charge of third-degree assault, which is a misdemeanor. Records say she "did commit the crime of assault third degree...with intent to cause physical injury to another person, Guisseppe Eduardo Clemente, by scratching him multiple times.''

She was booked into the Shelby County Jail on Sunday with bond set at $2,000. She was released on Monday, jail records show. Shelby County sheriff's Capt. Jeff Hartley said he couldn't release additional information beyond what's posted on their website.

Clemente's attorney, Chris Daniel, issued this statement to Al.com: "On Sunday morning, Mr. and Mrs. Clemente got into a disagreement that turned into a dispute. Mrs. Clemente herself requested that the police come to her home to help calm the situation. Nine times out of ten when the police are called for a domestic situation one of the two parties is taken to jail. The police do this out of an abundance of caution for both parties and to prevent the situation from getting worse when passions run high. That was not the case here as Mr. Clemente asked the police on multiple occasions not to arrest Mrs. Clemente but the officers on the scene chose to follow their standard procedure and she happened to be the person arrested."

"Once all the facts come to light it will be obvious that no crime was committed and Mrs. Clemente should not have been arrested. Situations just like this cause people to hesitate before they call the police for fear of being arrested when they've done nothing wrong."

A former Boy Scout leader and coach has been indicted on 20 felony counts of rape and sexual battery of a child involving five boys.

Two of the charges are bribery of a witness, which accuse Darrell G. Fisher of also giving two of the boys money so they would not come forward.

Fisher was arrested in January. Nashville police said at the time that 44-year-old Fisher forged a father-like relationship with an 11-year-old boy. Fisher began taking the child to Boy Scouts of America meetings and became an assistant scout leader, police said.

The boy came forward in January, when he was 17, starting the investigation. The boy said the abuse occurred over several years...

"We removed him immediately when the allegation came up," said Scout executive Larry Brown of the Middle Tennessee Council. He said after the arrest that two meetings were held with families who may have known Fisher, and counseling was made available.

"This is a terrible thing, but we wanted to do all we could to help the families," Brown said. "We have 6,300 leaders in the Middle Tennessee Council. One case of this is too many; we’ll always strive to protect our young people."

Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said Fisher met the additional four boys through World War II re-enactment programs Fisher led for the Boy Scouts. Police in January asked the public for more information on Fisher, saying he also had contact with children through scouting, coaching lacrosse and other sports and during his hobby, World War II re-enactments.

The indictment names five boys as victims and says the abuse happened between 2008 and 2015. The boys were ages 11 to 14 when the incidents began, according to the indictment.

Fisher is in jail.

Danville Woman Suing AT&T for Stealing her Naked Pictures when she came into store to get phone fixed http://bit.ly/228Azel 

Quote
The 19-year old asked the Danville AT&T store employee, Travis Applegate, to fix her phone.

    “He stated we are going to replace your phone. She actually said, actually can I get my phone back? To delete data what’s on there. He said don’t worry about it, we do it,” said Caldwell.

    According to the lawsuit, Applegate guaranteed he would personally delete all of the data from the phone. However, lawyers say Applegate ended up saving some of the photos from the device for himself. The information came to light after he befriended the victim, through a mutual friend, in 2015.

She initially thought he might have three or four.  Her attorney said when the Danville police got involved, they actually discovered 78 naked or half-naked photos.  The lawsuit concludes with an alleged confession from Applegate: “I’m sorry. It’s my fault. I’m in the wrong. When I did that, I didn’t know you.”

A Nashville judge says a "cavalier attitude" and another judge's limited work schedule left one man languishing in jail for weeks longer than necessary.

Criminal Court Judge Mark Fishburn on Wednesday ordered the man, Richard Atchley, released from jail pending trial. Fishburn in two stern orders issued this week found no good reason why Presiding General Sessions Judge Rachel Bell could not hear Atchley's case until 24 days after his arrest.

"Whatever the reason for the inordinate delay, it was not brought on by the actions of the defendant, but he is the one who is unduly suffering the consequences of not having his timely day in court," Fishburn's Wednesday order reads.

Atchley was arrested April 22 after a traffic stop. An arrest affidavit says police officers found a blue-green substance they believed to be methamphetamine and tubing they suspected was the makings of a meth lab in Atchley's car. He faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.

Fishburn's orders shed some light on what happened in Atchley's case and Bell's hours. According to the court documents:

On April 28, the day Bell was scheduled to hear a preliminary hearing in Atchley's case, she did not begin court until after 11 a.m. In a preliminary hearing, a judge determines if there is enough evidence to send a criminal case before a grand jury to consider a possible indictment.

She then said she had to leave at 12:30 p.m. because she was teaching a class at a local high school.

Bell said she would be back at 3:30 p.m. to finish the hearing. But one of the prosecution's witnesses had a scheduling conflict. Future dates "were not convenient" to the judge and so she scheduled it for May 16.

That would have been 24 days after Atchley's arrest.

Fishburn's orders infuriated Bell, who went to talk to Fishburn on Thursday morning.

In an email response to The Tennessean, Bell raised concern not about Atchley's release from jail but about Fishburn's first order and footnote to it.

The footnote said Bell does not appear in court before 10:30 a.m. "due to sleep issues related to her Type II diabetes."

Bell told The Tennessean that was untrue. She said cases are typically not ready until 10 a.m. and thus it is better to start late.

"The start time is best for me including but not limited to my health and the best time for the courthouse," Bell wrote to The Tennessean on Thursday, saying she would not discuss her health.

Tennessean began asking questions and seeking records about Bell's work hours after lawyers raised concerns her limited schedule was impacting her ability to hear cases. The Tennessean began its inquires before learning of her medical condition.

A typical court day in Nashville is 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., though judges do have flexibility in their schedules.

On April 26, two days before Atchley appeared in her courtroom, Bell said she would have to adjourn early and reschedule cases remaining on the docket. A Tennessean reporter was in her courtroom that day for cases that were unrelated to Atchley's. Bell said she had to lead a class at Whites Creek High School and had to leave at 12:30 p.m.

From the bench Bell spoke to the reporter. She said she was aware of the news organization's inquiry into her schedule and suggested the schedule was unique to accommodate a medical condition and her extracurricular programs.

She then voluntarily pulled out a blood glucose monitor and tested her blood sugar — still on the bench with court in session — showing the reporter her test results from the past several hours and disclosing her diabetes diagnosis.

Bell was elected in 2012 to finish the term of Judge Leon Ruben, who died.

Looks like he was fired for some reason. IF it was for cause and the company owns the phone and he could use ti to spend company money then I have no problem with it. IF he was fired while away from the office and the phone did not allow him to spend their money using it then they could have waited until he was at least back in the office to fire him. I'm tired of all this "boohoo" I've been mistreated and everyone has to know. Guess what we ALL have been mistreated at some point in our lives.

It was only a matter of time before C-USA and Al Jazeera joined forces (http://www.sunherald.com/sports/college/conference-usa/university-of-southern-mississippi/article78075932.html)

Conference USA's new TV contract is coming into focus and it will involve four different networks, including one that's never broadcast American football before.

Cable sports network beIN SPORTS announced that it has reached a deal with C-USA to air some of the league's football and basketball games this fall. The beIN network was created by the same people who started Al Jazeera, a news channel owned by the Qataris.

Qatar-based network has long focused primarily on soccer (Spain's La Liga and Italy's Serie A) and it is a popular network among the game's fans, but this will mark the first time that it has carried American football.

The acquisition of C-USA football and basketball by beIN is an effort to boost its numbers in the United States, where it has struggled.

The network is available to subscribers of AT&T U-verse and Verizon FiOS. Also, Sling TV and Play Station Vue users can subscribe to beIN SPORTS.

Two former members of a board tasked with investigating the conduct of Tennessee judges say a delay in a Nashville courtroom that left four people in jail beyond a 10-day hearing deadline could be a violation of rules for judges.

They called for more information on how Nashville Presiding General Sessions Judge Rachel Bell runs her courtroom. Nashville Criminal Court Judge Mark Fishburn, who last week acted on a defense lawyer's appeal and ordered one man released from custody because Bell had not held a preliminary hearing in 24 days, said he would not file a complaint against his colleague.

"I don't see the need for it," Fishburn said Tuesday. "I don't know anything about how she runs her courtroom other than one day."

That one day was April 28. Assistant Public Defender Jared Mollenkof said in a motion that Bell didn't show up until 11 a.m. and then had to leave to teach a class at 12:30 p.m. A police detective scheduled to testify couldn't come back in the afternoon, and Bell set the hearing back to May 16. Fishburn said in two later orders he did not see reason for the more than two-week delay in the preliminary hearing.

Court guidelines say those hearings should happen in 10 days if a person is in jail, as were the four people charged in the case. It's known as the 10-day rule.

"This court commends the general sessions judge for her contribution to the community and her dedication to her position, so it should not be necessary to point out that '(t)he duties of judicial office, as prescribed by law, shall take precedence over a judge's personal and extra judicial activities,' " Fishburn wrote, citing the Tennessee Code of Judicial Conduct.

Fishburn told The Tennessean on Tuesday he included that in his order as a reminder to all judges that the courtroom comes first.

Bell has said she did not delay the hearing too long and accused Fishburn of attacking her medical condition — diabetes — that she said at least partially contributes to her not starting court until 10:30 a.m. each day.

Judges are obligated to follow the Code of Judicial Conduct in the rules of the Tennessee Supreme Court. The rules, called canons, that apply to delays include provisions that judges should:

    handle and decide cases promptly.
    be punctual.
    not let other activities interfere with their judicial duties.

A mistrial was declared Friday in the first-degree murder case of Ricky Patton after the death of a sequestered juror overnight.

Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Paula Skahan said only 11 jurors remained due to issues with two other jurors who were previously released. One had tried to discuss the case prematurely and the other injured himself walking to the jury box.

The juror who died, Arthur Robinson, was found by his roommate on the floor of the bathroom in the hotel where they were sequestered this week. He was 64.

"We can't go on with the trial," Skahan said.

Patton, 29, is charged in the killing of 26-year-old Terrance Covington, who was found July 5, 2013 with several gunshot wounds. He was found at an apartment in the 1700 block of Piping Rock in the area of East Raines and Millbranch.

"In my 30 years as an attorney and judge, I have never even heard of it, let alone experienced it," Skahan said of the juror's death.

The headline in Sunday’s print edition about the Mississippi State baseball team winning the SEC was unfortunate. As executive editor, I take responsibility for it because we didn’t have checks in place to make sure something like that didn’t happen. Those checks are now in place.

With that said, let me explain how it came to be that the Bulldogs winning the SEC ran with a headline thanking the Ole Miss Rebels for helping them out.

The headline was written by someone at our design studio in Nashville, someone who does not know the intricacies of the rivalry between the two schools. The headline played off the fact that Texas A&M needed to lose for State to win the SEC crown outright. For the Aggies to lose, Ole Miss had to win. It left State fans cheering for arch-rival Ole Miss at the same time the Bulldogs were trying to seal the deal against Arkansas.

What was meant as a clever, tongue-in-cheek headline by a group of talented designers and finishers in Nashville nevertheless would not have been written by someone who understands such a heated rivalry. For all of the great work that comes from being able to use a talented team of designers who are not onsite, this is one of the pitfalls we have to be careful to manage better.

That’s not to say The Clarion-Ledger is without blame...

Great Smoky Mountains National Park said Monday the black bear it euthanized earlier this month was not the one that attacked a hiker sleeping in his tent near the Spence Field shelter.

The determination was made after officials received DNA analyses comparing samples from bears found near the shelter where the attack occurred May 10.

The first analysis compared a sample of bear saliva taken from the belongings of hiker Bradley Veeder, 49, of Las Vegas and from a male bear euthanized on May 13. Veeder, a thru-hiker on the Appalachian Trail, was treated and released from a hospital.

Park biologists attempted to attach a GPS-tracking collar to the first bear on May 13, but the 400-pound bear's neck was too large, according to the news release.

"Bears are iconic symbols in the Smokies and a decision to euthanize an animal is not made lightly," Superintendent Cassius Cash said in a news release.

“I do want to take this opportunity to apologize to our board for mistakes we made with certain aspects of the details of an entertainment agreement,” McGarity said during the AD’s report to the board. “Few things in my professional life have bothered me more than this situation. There are no reruns in life so we need to turn the page, learn from our mistakes and do everything we can to make sure errors of this nature do not reoccur.”

Luducris was paid $65,000 by UGA to provide pregame entertainment before the April 16th game at Sanford Stadium. Afterward, documents revealed that alcohol and a huge box of condoms was among the items requested by Ludacris management and UGA provided it.

SMYRNA — One person has been reported dead after a U.S. Navy Blue Angels jet crashed following takeoff during a practice flight around 3 p.m. Thursday, according to a county fire dispatcher.

Larry Farley, Rutherford County fire chief, said his dispatchers were told one person was killed. It is unclear if it was the pilot or a bystander.

Steve Fiebing, deputy public affairs officer for the Naval Air Forces, said the jet crashed at 3:01 p.m. He would not release information on the condition of the pilot. He said the Naval Air Forces would investigate. The pilot has not been identified.

Witnesses said all other Blue Angels aircraft have landed and are on the ground.

A fireball and thick black plume of smoke from the crash could be seen just beyond the runway at Smyrna Airport and from Interstate 24.

Helicopters circled the area and first responders cordoned off nearby areas. Bright yellow police tape kept residents of the nearby Fairway Meadows Apartment complex, at 93 Weakley Lane, at a safe distance.

It says Bell "showed for 9:00 docket at 10:30, informed us that she needed to leave at 12:30." It also says Bell took an hourlong break during the case, delayed a ruling for more than one month and gave unfair consideration to the defendant because he was a "senior citizen."

"I’m there at 8:30. I was told it was 9 o'clock it started," Craig said. He said he waited in court for four hours for his trial involving a labor contract dispute, and ended up being there until late afternoon.

"Right in the middle of my hearing, she stopped to take pictures with a high school class there," he said.

50% of a small Louisiana town's police force was arrested Wednesday: http://www.theneworleansadvocate.com/news/16046468-123/jefferson-parish-sheriffs-office-arrest-3-grand-isle-police-officers-in-wake-of-police-headquarters- … with @RVargasAdvocate

Quote
Recent months have been tough for the small police force patrolling Grand Isle. It was raided in the course of a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office drug sting, its assistant chief accidentally drove into a beach sunbather, and its top cop was in the middle of a recently settled lawsuit alleging a child molestation cover-up.

Perhaps the worst blow landed Wednesday, when three of its officers were arrested by the Sheriff’s Office on accusations of malfeasance, leaving the embattled department with just three cops to protect an island town of about 1,300 residents and numerous summertime visitors.

Police Chief Euris DuBois said he was “stunned” by the uncomfortable position he found himself in: probably being forced to ask the Sheriff’s Office, the same agency that had just arrested half his department, to lend him some deputies.

Sheriff’s Office did link the arrests to a probe accompanying a mid-March raid on the Grand Isle department’s headquarters, executed amid allegations that local cops had been careless in safeguarding evidence and had interfered with parish deputies’ undercover narcotics investigations.

The raiding deputies said they discovered marijuana was missing from an evidence bag and $4,000 was missing from a department cash box...

Upon another glance, Bivens saw that it wasn't a good job stamp. There was a smiley face, and under it a note saying, "I need lunch money."

Bivens' son attends Gardendale Elementary School and just completed third grade.

Typically, Bivens said, he or his wife receives an email when their son's lunch money account is running low. While he mostly brings his lunch from home, the 8-year-old likes to buy ice cream or other treats from the lunchroom.

Bivens said that, on the last week of school, his son had a positive balance in his account. After he bought his ice cream, the child still had a balance of $1.38.

"They herd these kids like cattle," Bivens said.

The father said that his son was "branded."

"When you start stamping a message on a child's body instead of calling...it's not okay."

Bivens' son did not return to school for the last few days of the academic year.

Gardendale Elementary School Principal Laura Ware said that she was not aware of the incident, but that the lunchroom department uses different methods of alerting parents of their child's balance. She said those notices include emails, notes, stickers, and stamps.

She said that the school first sends emails when a child's account balance is low or negative. If parents do not respond, she said that lunchroom workers use the stickers, or stamps, like Bivens' son received.

"It's a form of bullying and shaming the kids," Bivens said.

"I don't care if my son has a -$100 balance... I don't care. Send me a note home or an email...Where can I draw the line regarding my parental rights?"

Ware, who said that her greatest desire as a principal is to communicate with the parents, said, "we want to communicate in a way that our parents are happy with."

"That's a part of our jobs."

She said that the school would be happy to only send emails and exclude stamps for Bivens' son, and for any other parent that wishes to do so.

After chase and shootout, Mississippi police kill man accused of shooting ex-girlfriend http://trib.al/lZ9cWng

Quote
Authorities say police in northern Mississippi fatally shot a man who was suspected of killing his ex-girlfriend.

Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain says Tupelo police shot 27-year-old Lyndarius Cortez Witherspoon of Tupelo after a chase Saturday evening.

Tupelo Police Capt. Chuck McDougald tells local news outlets police began to chase Witherspoon after an officer recognized his license plate from a law enforcement alert. McDougald says Witherspoon shot at police during the chase and after it ended at an apartment complex where police blocked in his vehicle.

Strain says Witherspoon was shot during a shootout with police.

Baldwyn Police Chief Troy Agnew says the alert was sent after 23-year-old Alexandra Caldwell was shot and killed earlier Saturday in Baldwyn.

Betsy Clayton, public information officer for Lee County, said a call from the Lee County Sheriff's Office on Monday alerted the department of transportation to a bad odor coming from a catch basin in the Whiskey Creek community.

She said the DOT crew got there, confirmed the odor and went about figuring out what was the cause.

What they found was a very dead 11-foot-long alligator stuck in the catch basin.

"About twice a year we get calls for gators," she said. Mostly, though, Clayton said the gators are not that large.

"Our pipes are not that big," she said.

The pipe the gator probably came through was about 14-by-24 inches, she said, but where it was found was in the catch basin, which measures about 4-feet-wide. The gator was located about 2 to 3 feet below ground in the catch basin.

"This was an abnormally large gator," said Randy Cerchie, director of the county's DOT. "It's just part of what we do."

Sunken resort island to resurface for Biloxi exhibit (http://www.clarionledger.com/story/magnolia/diversions/2016/06/10/sunken-resort-island-resurface-biloxi-exhibit/85564532)

Quote
Beneath the surface of the Mississippi Sound, where its waters meet the blue-green Gulf of Mexico, lie the remains of an island that served up spirits and casino gambling to patrons from across the country during the Prohibition era.

The fickle Isle of Caprice, known to earlier seafarers, rum runners and bootleggers as Dog Keys, roared for five years from 1926-30 before a combination of man-made and natural events caused the sandy key to wash away.

Ever since, the descendants of owner Walter Henry “Skeet” Hunt have maintained the taxes in hopes that the Isle of Caprice would rise again. And this summer, it will — in a sense. The tale of the resort will be the subject of an exhibit at the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi, beginning July 11 and running to October.

The woman advised the deputies that Maldonado had raped her multiple times and fathered her 8-month-old baby.

“I touched the ball four times on that play before I scored,” Curry said. “So I’m running out of bounds, and I lateral it backwards, and I’m on the sidelines for a second with my teammates who aren’t on the field. I just giggled with them for a moment and then ran back and kept going..."

Their dreams of gambling, star-studded shows and buffet meals were quickly crushed, however, when they learned their flights were actually departing from Birmingham, Ala. (http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2016/04/birmingham_las_vegas.html)

Richella Heekin spent a year planning the trip for the 30th birthday of her long-time boyfriend, Ben Marlow. She kept the trip a secret until revealing the surprise in front of friends and family.

Heekin paid £1,200 ($1,745) for the flights on lastminute.com and wasn't able to get a refund.

British couple who mistook Birmingham, Alabama for Birmingham, England when booking a trip to Las Vegas a few months ago will get to experience the Magic City for themselves on Aug. 16-17.

Tom Cosby, a retired Birmingham businessman, is organizing the couple's visit.

The couple will spend a day and a half in Magic City after spending a week in Las Vegas.

Richard Branson-owned Virgin Holidays is picking up the tab for the couple's airfare and five nights of accommodations in Las Vegas.

While in Alabama, five of Birmingham's hippest young couples will escort Heekin and Marlow around the city. They will sample the city's "legendary culinary destinations," including award-winning restaurants and craft beer pubs.

They will experience the Magic City's award-winning Red Mountain Park and hair-raising zipline courses, use the electric assist Zyp bikes to tour the city center and receive VIP treatment at Birmingham's internationally renowned Porsche Driving Experience, Cosby said.

The couple will be treated like celebrities complete with the chance to throw out the first pitch at a Birmingham Barons baseball game at Regions Field.

Their short visit will be capped off with tickets to Iron City to see Jenny Lewis in concert.

In a previous interview with AL.com, Heekin said she was appreciative of Cosby's "generous offer" and was looking forward to visiting the South.

Calls were made to an Oxford, Alabama, Dillard's store on Monday afternoon.

"There was an incorrect screen print," said Ashley, who said she was a manager at Dillard's but didn't want to give her last name. "We received them and realized it was incorrect. They took them off the floor."

The T-shirts show the Alabama and Auburn logos over an image of the state of Mississippi.

Ashley told AL.com the T-shirts weren't sold. An earlier conversation with a woman who answered the phone laughed and asked if the call was about Alabama and Auburn T-shirts. She said those T-shirts had sold out.

It is possible, however, the first woman didn't realize they had been removed by the store.

"Someone goofed," Ashley said.

"He was seen by officers and seen by residents, but he wasn't aggressive. It looked like, to me, he was minding his own business and walking."

Armstrong said the first call came in around 11 a.m., and at about 1 p.m. it walked past Sgt. Eric Paymon, who was able to take a picture of the bear.

"He was probably 6 feet tall if he stood on his hind legs," Armstrong said. "He stood up at one time. I guess he wanted to get a better look at the city."

By Sunday afternoon, it appeared the furry tourist had seen all he wanted and continued north out of the town without incident.

"It was one just passing through and kept going and going and going," said Richard Rummel, acting Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Bear Program coordinator. "It got a few folks worked up.

"Keep your garbage up and don't leave food out," Rummel said. "Even bird feeders will attract them this time of year."

If you encounter a bear, Rummel said to leave it alone.

"Certainly don't try to approach it," Rummel said. "Whatever you do, don't feed it."

An investigation by the Office of Access and Equity at Clemson University revealed members of the women's golf team described the team's environment as "hostile."

Clemson launched a review into the program after allegations were made about the behavior of head coach J.T. Horton. (http://www.independentmail.com/sports/college/clemson/clemson-investigates-womens-golf-program-365ce098-1252-6acb-e053-0100007fab8b-384750401.html)

(http://media.jrn.com/images/200*273/D0014488413--421743.JPG)

Quote
A parent of a golfer told a university administrator Feb. 29 that his daughter was "subjected to behavior and communication by Coach Horton causing a hostile environment to her." The parent raised concerns about Horton making physical contact with his daughter that was not sexual in nature but made her uncomfortable.

A letter to the parent from the Office of Access and Equity dated March 17 said the golfer "was concerned about being touched on her shoulders by Coach Horton during a tournament." She also "raised several concerns about Coach Horton's coaching style, communication with the team and her overall relationship with him as a coach." The March letter also spelled out what actions were taken by Clemson.

"There was no violation of any policy," Horton told the Independent Mail on Tuesday. "My goal is always to bring the best out of my players, and we are looking forward to building on the success we have had."

Clemson hired Horton on Aug. 19, 2011, to be the university's first women's golf coach. Horton came to Clemson after four years as the head coach at Tulane University. Through three seasons of competition at Clemson, four members of the team have left the program early.

Ashlan Ramsey, who came to Clemson as the world's top-ranked female amateur golfer and led the Tigers in scoring in 2014, originally planned to stay with the program for four years but left after one season.

"We would have loved for her to stay all four years," Al Ramsey, Ashlan's father, told the Independent Mail on Tuesday. "We're sorry that it didn't work out that way. She loved the school, loves the players there, the golf program but the atmosphere created by the coaches just didn't make it possible for her to continue going to school there."

The university concluded there was "insufficient evidence" to substantiate any violations by Horton of its Anti-Harassment and Non-Discrimination Policy.

"Our investigation did not find behavior based on any of these factors that contributed to the issues being experienced on the team," wrote Jerry Knighton, director of Clemson's Office of Access and Equity, in the letter. "That said, we did find that the majority of student-athletes on the team expressed concerns and described the environment as hostile."

Joe Galbraith, Clemson associate athletic director of communications, issued a statement Tuesday to the Independent Mail. The statement is: "Earlier this spring, an issue regarding women's golf was brought to the attention of our athletic administration. We immediately forwarded the concern to the Office of Access and Equity, which conducted a thorough review of the situation and determined there was no violation of university or department policy. Following the review, the athletic department immediately implemented suggested actions and is moving forward with those adjustments."

When asked if Horton had been reprimanded, Galbraith said the issues have been fully addressed with Horton.

Following the investigation, Clemson decided to have one of two female associate athletic directors — Loreto Jackson or Natalie Honnen — accompany the team on the remainder of its trips this past season. Additional actions were suggested to Dan Radakovich, Clemson's athletic director, "that may be taken to address some of the issues identified in hopes that the overall environment may be improved."

Opelika police and state wildlife officials Wednesday tracked and captured a black bear that had been roaming residential areas near the city’s historic downtown district earlier in the day.

The bear was safely transported and released back into the wild Wednesday afternoon.

No one was injured in the capture.

“He’s safe and sound,” said Capt. Shane Healey, who helped coordinate efforts to keep the bear contained to streets in the Jeter community for more than two hours Wednesday morning.

Alabama Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement personnel, with the assistance of Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences faculty, were able to tranquilize the bear and load it in into a trailer for Opelika police to transport it out of the city.

The bear was released back into the wild less than an hour after being tranquilized.

"Everything went very smoothly. When I last saw the bear, the bear was doing wonderful," said Dr. Steve Ditchkoff, wildlife sciences professor. 

Healey recounted the situation.

“He was first spotted out at our public works facility on Fox Trail, and from that point on, officers just tried to kind of set up a perimeter and keep an eye on him as he walked through the neighborhoods, trying to wait on the wildlife game and fish folks to get everything together to be able to tranquilize him and get him moved safely,” said Healey.

“Once they got into town, we just coordinated with them to get all the pieces in place and we got some help from Auburn University and one of the vet professors. They sent several people out to help us get him tranquilized. Once he went down and was out, they checked him over real good. We got a bunch of ice on him to keep him cool for transport, and they just did some things to get him prepared to transport and put him in the trailer and took him to an undisclosed location for release.”

Healey said this isn’t the first time a bear has been sighted in Opelika, but it was the first instance of a bear in a heavily populated area of the city.

“We’ve had bear sightings in town before. The last one was over on North Uniroyal Road. It’s probably been a couple years. But we’ve never had one this close, in the middle of town, where it was in a heavily populated area,” he said.

The prevalence and visibility of black bears throughout Alabama is on the rise, according to the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Knoxville Police Department officers arrested a man and woman accused of stealing from a downtown church Wednesday afternoon.

Joy Gallisdorfer, 25, and Leonard Walker, 41, were arrested after briefly evading police.

Investigators had only started to inventory the stolen items Wednesday afternoon at Church Street United Methodist Church, at 900 Henley St., but they included "a wreath, and for some reason, a lot of paperwork," KPD spokesman Darrell DeBusk said in an email.

When officers responded to a theft call at the church, the suspects fled out of the parking lot in a vehicle, nearly hitting a man operating a golf cart. They then ran a red light at Main Street and lost police as they continued down Cumberland Avenue, authorities said.

KPD Sgt. Donny Huskey located the pair traveling north on Interstate 275 and pulled vehicle over as it exited onto Heiskell Avenue. Inside the vehicle, police found stolen items from the church in the suspects vehicle, authorities said. Photos released by KPD show church bulletins, fliers and cards, though police said these were "only some of (the) items recovered."

The suspects were taken into custody without incident. Gallisdorfer has been charged with theft. Walker has been charged with evading arrest, reckless endangerment and driving on a revoked license.

Metro police arrested the 55-year-old man Monday night after officers say they found him in bed with a stolen mannequin from a Nashville lingerie store.

A stolen mannequin donning a brown bob wig, a pink spandex dress and rhinestone stilettos. And red lips.

According to an arrest warrant, officers responded to Hollywood Hustler at 1400 Church Street for a report of a theft that had just occurred.

At the store, an employee told police that a man who appeared intoxicated walked into the store just after midnight, grabbed a mannequin just inside the door adorned with lingerie and took it outside into the parking lot. In the process, the man knocked the mannequin's left arm off.

Officers found him in bed with the stolen mannequin which was missing its left arm and wearing all the merchandise it was last seen sporting.

Wade also matched a suspect description given by the store employee.

Wade, who had an active warrant, was arrested on charges including theft and booked into the Metro jail.

As of Wednesday, while Wade remained incarcerated on $11,000 bond, the mannequin he took to bed remained in evidence at the Metro police department pending the results of the case.

Meanwhile, an employee at Hustler said the doll's detached arm should be an easy fix.

Ticket sales for the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival fell precipitously this year to an all-time low of 45,537 — a drop of 46 percent from its 2011 high.

Bonnaroo doesn’t release its actual ticket sales, but The Tennessean calculated the number following a public records request to the Coffee County government’s budget office.

The festival sold 28,156 fewer tickets in 2016 compared to the prior year. The previous low came in 2008 when there were 65,164 tickets sold.

With an average price of $324, Bonnaroo saw $9.07 million less in ticket sales revenue this year compared to 2015. The plummeting ticket sales came in the first full year since Live Nation purchased a controlling interest in Bonnaroo. Live Nation purchased a majority share of Bonnaroo just weeks before the 2015 festival.

Industry experts attributed the drop in ticket sales in part to what some viewed as a so-so slate of headlining artists –

Early Reports: Two police officers have been shot dead in Baton Rouge, La., and others may have been wounded (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/07/17/reports-baton-rouge-police-officers-shot/87218884)

Quote
Two Baton Rouge police officers shot on Sunday morning have died, confirmed William Daniel, the city-parish's chief administrative officer, according to The Advocate newspaper.

Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola confirmed that several officers were shot by gunfire, the paper reported. East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office deputies may have also been among those shot, Coppola said.

Kip Holden, mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish, told CNN that "three officers are feared dead."

"They are investigating," he said. "Right now we are trying to get our arms around everything."

Both lanes of Airline Highway are shut down from Goodwood Boulevard to Old Hammond Highway and from Old Hammond to Drusilla Drive, according to East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks. The scene is still active, Hicks told The Advocate.

About 20 police officers wearing bulletproof vests are near the scene and a helicopter was flying overhead, the paper reported.

The Baton Rouge mayor's office urged urges people to stay home, stay off the streets for now in immediate wake of police shooting...

A witness told WBRZ-TV that a man was dressed in black with his face covered shooting indiscriminately when he walked out between a convenience store and car wash across from Hammond Air Plaza. Police closed the streets between the police department’s headquarters and Interstate 12.

WAFB-TV reported officers were shot along Airline Highway near Old Hammond Highway, but didn’t specify the number of police.

Former Alabama swimmer Kristel Vourna thought she would compete in the Olympics for the second time next month in Brazil after she received her official invitation from FINA, international swimming's governing body, on July 6.

But Vourna won't compete in the 100-meter butterfly for Greece, as FINA indicated, after all, according to the Athens daily Kathimerini.

On Thursday, FINA contacted Vourna again to tell her an administrative error had led to her invitation.

"An athlete's biggest dream is to take part in the Olympic Games," Dimitris Diathesopoulos, head of Greece's swimming federation, told the newspaper. "No one can retract such a thing. It is unforgivable, and it can ruin the soul and the vision of an athlete."

To make up for its mistake, FINA invited Vourna to attend the Summer Games as its guest. Vourna turned it down.

"Unfortunately, people's mistakes are always paid by other people," Vourna said.

Vourna swam for the Crimson Tide from 2011 through 2015, receiving a redshirt season after being injured early in 2013. She holds the Alabama record in the 100-meter butterfly.

PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (WTOK)- Philadelphia police say they're investigating a situation where a woman was allegedly sexually harassed by people trying to sell her a car.

The woman says the contractors for the traveling car sales company would only sell her the car in return for sexual favors.

Sarah Ellis says she was only trying to buy a car last weekend, but that purchase turned into sexual harassment, a police investigation and now fear for her safety. It started on Saturday, when Ellis visited BC Auto Liquidators, a traveling car dealership, in her hometown of Philadelphia.

"Before I ever really get out of the car, this one salesman, which is normal at a sales place, jumps on me," Ellis says. "I guess he saw my dingy car and thought, yeah, she needs a car."

Ellis says soon after, he started to make her feel uncomfortable, by touching her leg and offering her a job.

"I was being kind, but I wasn't returning the flirt," she says.

She says he told her that her credit wasn't good enough for the car she wanted, but he would try to help.

"He said I do have the information, I do have your address, and I will come find you because I'm helping you out," Ellis says. "Basically, I found out he was cosigning for me. This man that I don't even know."

Those phone threats turned into text messages, demanding sex in exchange for the car saying quote 'no hookup possibilities, no car', followed by more inappropriate texts from another salesmen. The owner of BC Auto Liquidators, Charles Harris, says he severed ties with those men.

"She sent me the text messages, and I immediately cut our obligations and told him his services were no longer needed. Both of them," Harris says.

Harris says the actions of those men don't represent his company.

Philadelphia police chief Grant Myers says they are working to find the men now, but if caught, they would only be charged with telephone harassment.

Gainesville Police Department commended Florida walk-on linebacker Cristian Garcia and another man for helping stop a sexual assault at a bar in Gainesville.

“I was taking out the garbage, and I saw the man pressing the woman up against the Dumpster,” Garcia told the Gainesville Sun. “At first the guy said she was his girlfriend, but about five seconds later I realized the girl was unconscious. I turned around and pulled the guy by the shoulder and said ‘get off.’ That pretty much ended the situation then. He was intoxicated and attempted to throw some punches, but he slipped and busted his face on the wall.”

Police arrested the man later and Garcia identified the man in a photo lineup.

UCF WR Tristan Payton tackles suspect accused of filming underage cheerleaders in bathroom (http://knightnews.com/2016/07/ucf-football-wr-tackles-suspect-accused-of-filming-cheerleader-campers-in-arena-bathroom)

Quote
On Wednesday afternoon, July 20, a call went out to the University of Central Florida Police Department on a male taking video of female juveniles in the female restroom inside of the CFE Arena.

A coach of the cheerleading team spoke with a UCF PD officer, stating several of the camp-goers were inside of the female restroom while the suspect, Jonathan Hui, used a cell phone to tape one of the girls using the restroom. The cheerleading coach then quickly moved to confront the suspect, witnessing Hui exiting the bathroom as he arrived.

The coach and another staff member demanded Hui to stop, to which he responded “I’m sorry – I delete them now” and continued an attempt to escape.

The individual ran through Jimmy Johns and out to East Plaza drive onto Memory Mall.

UCF Football wide receiver Tristan Payton ran to Hui near the Starbucks and tackled the suspect, detaining Hui until police arrived. Hui could be seen ‘tinkering with his phone’ and would have the phone held by Payton while waiting for authorities.

Adrian Briskey, the woman who plead guilty to the shooting death of Michelle Shepherd at a 2013 Iron Bowl viewing party in Hoover, Ala., was sentenced to 14 years and nine months in prison on Tuesday. It was the maximum prison sentence under the state’s guidelines.

The shooting, which killed a mother of three, happened when Briskey, who was reportedly intoxicated at the time, took exception to Shepherd’s reaction to the Crimson Tide’s loss.

The victim’s sister provided an account of what led to the shooting. Neketa Shepherd said her sister was an Alabama fan, but even more than Alabama, she loved The Miami Heat. After the game ended, she and her sister were joking around, not about Alabama’s loss, but about the Miami Heat. Briskey, Neketa Shepherd said, apparently took their joking the wrong way and became mad that they weren’t more upset over Alabama’s loss.

Montgomery County Courts Center was evacuated Tuesday morning after an inmate escaped from a holding cell and hid out in lower level of the building.

Jose Luis Garcia, 45, left his holding cell at about 10:45 a.m., per Sandra Brandon, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman...

"The design of the building does not allow for an inmate to escape the confines of the building, especially the lower level of the courthouse," Brandon said in a news release.

The building was evacuated as a precaution when deputies realized he was missing and began their search.

At 12:10 p.m., Deputy Eric Trout and his K-9 Fuse found Garcia in the duct work just above the holding area, Brandon said.

Garcia was apprehended, and no one was injured [except apparently Garcia].

Mooreville man said as he took the garbage out around 8:30 a.m., he saw an apparently naked man trying to get into a building just west of his house. When the suspect saw the man, the suspect waved and started walking toward him. The homeowner went back inside and called 911. He later saw the man in his carport and discovered his car had been gone through. The 51-year-old suspect was detained and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

"I hurt people who came to me for help and entrusted me to do the right thing," John Lowery told his victims Friday during a nearly five-hour sentencing hearing in Davidson County Criminal Court. "I failed at my job and took advantage of my legal position."

Lowery was an attorney for 23 years until last month when he was disbarred after he pleaded guilty to seven counts of theft and eight counts of forgery. Under a plea deal reached by attorneys in the case he faces 10 years of jail, probation or a combination of both.

Lowery, 50, had been free on bond until the end of Friday's hearing when Judge Steve Dozier remanded him into custody and reserved ruling on his sentence. Prosecutors say he settled nine cases without his clients’ knowledge or consent, signed their names to settlement checks without their permission, misappropriated the settlement funds and made misrepresentations to the clients to make them think their cases were progressing normally.

In all, testimony revealed, Lowery stole at least $300,000 from nine victims — six who took the stand Friday, some expressing anger and disappointment while others broke into tears.

"It just wasn't right, Mr. Lowery. So wrong," sobbed Sevier County resident Rose Dumont, who hired Lowery after her husband was hit by a car in Sevierville. "You don't do this to people."

Lowery, who also cried on the stand...

Anderson had just finished feeding his chickens when he walked back to his house to get his phone so he could play Pokémon Go. Anderson then heard what he called a “big boom” and looked out his door to see the electric pole fall and a car flipped over in his fence.

Anderson then goes on to say that two people, later identified as Noah Elkins, 36, of East Bernstadt, and Priscilla Simpson, 35, of Dry Ridge, got out of the car “screaming and squalling, and running around about like a chicken with its head cut off.”

According to Anderson, the couple then started running up the road to his house where they grabbed his water hose in an attempt to fight off the bees. Anderson told WYMT that he thought the people were high and told them to get out of his water – he didn’t realize they were under attack by vicious honeymakers.

Investigators confirmed Anderson’s suspicion of the pair being high, when Simpson told deputies later that she and Elkins had taken several drugs, including Suboxone, neurotin and Klonopin.

Anderson was also stung during the incident but said he hoped the two had learned their lesson about driving impaired on his road.

If only the two had BEE-haved...

The incident happened at the restaurant on Pleasant Hill Road.

According to a police report, one woman told a responding officer that she became upset after another woman, who she didn't know, began laughing at her after her boyfriend left.

"She bucked on me so I fought back," the woman is quoted in the police report as saying.

One of the men involved in the altercation suffered a laceration to his left arm and was later taken to the hospital for treatment.
