New Mexico high school wrestler Canaan Bower is making headlines this week after helping to stop an alleged kidnapping and assault in Lac Cruces, NM. 22-year-old Daniel Arroyo Beltran of Phoenix, Arizona, was arrested after witnesses said he tried to kidnap three children at Chucky’s Gas Station in Doña Ana. Beltran is also assaulted by several patrons and employees who tried to intervene. The apparently random attack didn’t stop until Bower entered the affray and was able to control Beltran within seconds.

Daniel Villegas, now 41, returns to a courtroom for the third time to face murder charges. Some background on his case: the charges Villegas is facing date back to 1993, when Armando “Mando” Lazo and Bobby England were gunned down in El Paso, Texas. Villegas was 16 years old at the time. He then confessed to those shootings, but later claimed he was coerced by an El Paso police officer into a confession. Villegas had a mistrial in 1994 due to a hung jury, then a conviction in his second trial in 1995

Officers arrest a man after surveying video footage in which he accidentally drops a baggie of drugs in the courtroom. Security Cameras in the courtroom proved the man’s innocence as police were preparing to arrest him for having a controlled substance inside the court.

A New Jersey man George Falcone, 50, from Freehold, N.J. who allegedly coughed on a Wegmans employee and said he had coronavirus was charged Tuesday with a terroristic threat, among other charges, officials said.

Falcone was charged with terroristic threats, obstructing the administration of law or other governmental function and harassment after the incident occurred Sunday, New Jersey Attorney General said in a statement.

The Wegmans employee reportedly asked Falcone to step back after he was “standing too close to her” and an open display of prepared food.

Falcone allegedly leaned forward within three feet of her and purposefully coughed, while laughing and saying he was infected with the virus.

The New York Police Department released surveillance video on Thursday showing four suspects – two of them wearing surgical masks – walking down a hallway at Hotel Ninety Five in Queens.

For our amusement Gravity got the best of one of the would-be robbers fleeing the scene of a crime, but he did not let a two-story fall hinder his escape.

When a police officer in Staten Island was caught by his own body camera in the apparent act of planting marijuana in the car of a group of young men, the video evidence against him was strong enough to prompt prosecutors in the resulting case to throw out the marijuana charge in the middle of a pretrial hearing. A judge cut short his testimony, and prosecutors recommended he get a lawyer. But an internal review by the New York Police Department found that no misconduct had occurred.

Now a new video — published exclusively by The Intercept — shows the same officer again seemingly planting marijuana during a different traffic stop just a few weeks after the first. On both occasions, two officers — Kyle Erickson and Elmer Pastran, of the 120th Precinct — stopped cars for minor traffic infractions, then claimed the vehicles smelled like marijuana. In both instances, body camera footage shows the officers extensively searching the cars for several minutes and finding nothing. In the first incident, in February 2018, Erickson’s body camera is then suddenly switched off and then back on just as he discovers a marijuana cigarette that did not appear to be there when his partner was first searching the car.

The new video raises questions about the credibility of internal review processes and highlights the lack of transparency in cases of police misconduct. The video, which didn’t emerge for nearly two years, also underscores the limited information available not just to the public but also defendants, and validates criticism by police accountability advocates that body cameras are of no use if the evidence they capture remains inaccessible.

Three young women from Owensboro have been arrested after allegedly driving an SUV while high and carrying six young children without their seat belts on.

Wednesday evening in Ohio County, Kentucky State Police clocked a speeding white SUV going 27 miles per hour over the speed limit.

Krislon Talbott, 18, of Owensboro, was pulled over on Wednesday after Kentucky State Police clocked her driving 97mph in a 70mph zone, news outlets reported.

Troopers say the driver, 18-year-old Krislon Talbott, failed field sobriety tests.

During the tests, troopers say they heard a noise and found three more young children asleep in the rear cargo space.

Talbott and two other adult passengers were arrested and taken to the Ohio County Detention Center.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A 25-year-old Port Richmond man may be his own worst enemy after he allegedly walked into a bank, screamed “this is a robbery” and posted video of the incident to Instagram. District Attorney Michael E. McMahon upgraded charges to include attempted robbery for Augustin Nadreau, 25, of the 100 block of Treadwell Avenue, in connection with the bizarre incidents that happened minutes apart last Thursday afternoon in West Brighton at Northfield Bank and Victory State Bank.

The new charges affected the status of a case where Nadreau allegedly threatened in 2018 to bomb a bank if he didn’t receive $1 million in cash. Last Thursday, Nadreau entered the Northfield bank at 519 Forest Ave. at 1:24 p.m., according to the criminal complaint and police. “This is a mother f—–g robbery,” Nadreau said before leaving without any loot, according to the complaint. Nadreau then went to Victory State Bank at 755 Forest Ave. at about 1:28 p.m. He spoke to a teller and then walked away while allegedly screaming, “This is a mother f—–g robbery. Everyone put your hands on the floor.” The suspect left Victory without stealing anything, police said. Nadreau apparently took a selfie during the Victory incident and posted the video on his own Instagram page.

Police in Florida have arrested a man accused of punching another customer in the Chick-fil-A drive-thru.

According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, it happened at the restaurant on Airport-Pulling Road in North Naples.

The victim says he had just picked up his food at the drive-thru window but was unable to drive away due to another vehicle blocking the path. The victim honked his horn, and the other driver responded with a hand gesture. After a second honk, the other driver, later identified as 62-year-old Thomas Moran Anderson, walked towards the victim’s vehicle and punched the driver through the open window.

A passenger in that vehicle confronted Anderson, who got back in his vehicle and drove away. The passenger photographed Anderson’s license plate and provided it to deputies, who identified Anderson as the owner.

After the victim positively identified Anderson in a photo lineup, he was arrested at his North Naples home on Thursday and taken to the Naples Jail Center.

He is charged with burglary with battery.

Video footage has emerged showing the dying moments of a female cartel boss after she was fatally wounded during a shootout with police in Mexico.

The clip and photographs appear to confirm she was María Guadalupe López Esquivel, known as ‘La Catrina,’ a female member of a cartel hit squad that massacred 13 police officers in October.

The 21-year-old was involved in an attack against the military, national guard and police in La Bocanda, a town in the central state of Michoacán.

Officials in Michoacán said six male gunmen were captured and a woman was killed after they opened fire on soldiers and police in the same area where the October ambush occurred.

State officials initially did not provide the identity of the woman killed in the Friday shootout, but videos and photos posted on the internet late Sunday showed the woman wounded on a stretcher, with a tattoo of a ‘Catrina’ on her thigh.

Photos of the woman circulated earlier showed the same tattoo in the same place; some photos also show her holding a pistol.

The Catrina is a skeletal female figure with a wide hat that has become associated with Mexico’s Day of the Dead.
