A Kentucky man picked the wrong Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers to rob. Surveillance video shows two off-duty police officers (who are married and were out on a date)eating at the restaurant in Louisville when a man showed a gun and demanded cash from an employee. The officers left their booth, drew their guns and chased the suspect out of the restaurant. He had dropped his gun before he ran away and was taken into custody outside Cane’s.

A Peekskill police officer was arrested Saturday for alleged sexual abuse, stalking and burglary of a woman he was investigating.

His accuser, whom News 12 is not identifying, spoke exclusively with News 12’s Samantha Crawford. She apparently recorded an encounter with 33-year-old Officer Michael Agovino.

The audio of the recording includes what she says is Officer Agovino demanding sexual favors. She also says Agovino sexually assaulted her twice and stopped by her home unannounced four times since last summer.

She told News 12 that he was in uniform and on-duty during those alleged encounters.

According to a felony complaint, Officer Agovino was investigating a larceny “allegedly perpetrated by the victim.”

Officer Michael Agovino was arraigned Saturday at Peekskill City Court. He’s being held at the Westchester County Jail on $100,000 bond.

The Peekskill Police Department says it is fully cooperating with the investigation into the allegations by the Westchester County DA’s Office, and says Agovino has been placed on administrative leave until further notice.

A Florida woman Cherie Saunders, 38 is facing felony charges after resisting arrest and biting a deputy Friday, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers responded to a call in Palm Coast in reference to a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, deputies met in her driveway with her make-up smeared, no shoes, slurred speech and a heavy scent of alcohol coming from her, according to deputies.

During the investigation, deputies say they determined that Saunders had slapped a male resident inside the home. When deputies were trying to resolve the situation, she became argumentative and would not cooperate with deputies.

Last week, a 6-year-old girl was removed from her elementary school and escorted to a behavioral health center. Her mother, Martina Falk, said she was barred for a few days from taking her home.

Now Falk wants answers. On Monday, the mother of the little girl sat alongside her legal team at The Cochran Firm in San Marco. Falk and her attorney, Reganel Reeves, addressed members of the media regarding a situation with her child that she said took place on Feb. 4.

Falk’s daughter — who she said is diagnosed with ADHD and has a mood disorder — was sent to River Point Behavioral Health Center under the state Baker Act law by a social worker from Jacksonville’s Child Guidance Center, according to the school district.

“School district personnel do not make the decision to admit a person under the Baker Act,” Duval County Public Schools spokeswoman Laureen Ricks said. “By law, those decisions are made by certain licensed health care professionals or by law enforcement. In this case, the decision was made by a third party licensed mental health professional.”

The state law provides emergency health services and temporary detention and psychiatric evaluation for people in need. But Falk said she’s disappointed in the school district for letting her 6-year-old’s “temper tantrum” spark a psychological evaluation.

“We want answers,” said Reeves, whose team is calling for an investigation. “My client has not received a straight answer. We’re getting bits and pieces”

An altercation between a college football player and Ohio police officers Monday during a traffic stop ended up with the man slamming one of the officers, dashcam video shows.

Michael Harris, a linebacker for Eastern Kentucky University, was seen on the video in a parking lot near what appeared to be his SUV. As a Grove City police cruiser pulled up, the dashcam video showed Harris and another officer talking to each other.

Harris at one point put his hands up while being patted down. More words were exchanged and one officer appeared to put one of his hands on the back of the player’s head. Harris then tried to get back into the vehicle, but was pushed away and officers tried to arrest the man.

Disturbing surveillance footage has emerged showing a mother-of-five’s final hours after she was locked up in a Washington state jail for four days when her husband called 911 for help while she suffered a mental health episode.

Damaris Rodriguez, 43, was found dead in her cell at South Correctional Entity, known as SCORE, in Des Moines on January 3, 2018, after she had been incarcerated for 106 hours – despite not being charged with any crime.

Newly surfaced video shows one of the disturbing final days of a mother of five before she died behind bars in a Washington state jail. According to a lawsuit her family filed against the facility, Damaris Rodriguez was suffering from a “mental health episode” in 2017 when they claim she was wrongly arrested.

The surveillance footage shows Rodriguez in apparent distress, naked and hallucinating.

She is seen at one point undressing, at times crawling and appearing to vomit, and banging on the door. Rodriguez was found dead in her cell after about four days of alleged neglect.

“I’d describe it as a window into hell,” the family’s attorney Nate Bingham told CBS News’ Nikki Battiste.

The ordeal began when her husband placed a 911 call in 2017 wanting to seek medical help for Rodriguez.

In the emergency call, originally placed in Spanish, he described her as “having a psychiatric problem and isn’t behaving normal,” and went on to say “she’s being violent and has already hit me twice, and I need a medic.”

Instead, police arrived and carried Rodriguez into the Washington state jail known as “SCORE.”

“My mother had never been arrested,” Jose Marte, Rodriguez’ oldest son said. He acknowledged that she had been diagnosed with a mental disorder in the past.

The Rodriguez’s lawyer Nate Bingham claimed the facility’s staff was unable to communicate with Rodriguez during her incarceration because she was so mentally ill.

“When someone is so mentally ill that they can’t communicate, then that’s a sign of a really big problem,” he said.

The family’s lawsuit states Rodriguez eventually died from “an easily diagnosable and treatable metabolic condition called ketoacidosis,” and they said she had previously been diagnosed and treated for bipolar disorder.

Jose Marte said his family is now filing the suit “to bring justice to what has happened,” and to shine a light on “these type of situations that are happening in these jail systems.”

“I feel like all of this could have been prevented,” he said.

The confessed Parkland shooter was involved in a battle behind bars with a Broward Sheriff’s deputy. The jailhouse of it was kept under wraps, until now.

The had no audio, but according to records, Sgt. Raymond Beltran “requested that Cruz not drag his sandals on the ground while walking around.”

The video shows Cruz give Beltran the middle finger. Instantly, Cruz charged at Beltran and punched him.

Baltimore County Police Department released a body-worn camera video of incident involving January 10 arrest of two women following a disorderly call for service in Pikesville. Body camera footage from both responding officers shows how the situation escalated from a disturbance with a knife call to the deployment of pepper spray, a tazer and the arrest of a 76-year-old woman.

An Orlando police officer has been relieved of duty and is facing charges after body camera footage showed him pushing a man to the ground prior to his arrest near Lake Ivanhoe last September.

The officer, Frank Sikos, wrote in an arrest report that he responded to the area of Alden Road and Virginia Drive after two people said they saw a man, identified as Bennett Robinson, trying to get into a construction site across the street.

The arrest report says Robinson told officers he was a contractor inspecting the construction site on his walk home, around 4:15 a.m.

A Hispanic police captain in Miami has been suspended for claiming he was a “black male” during a city commission meeting, department officials said.

Javier Ortiz was “relieved of duty with pay” on Wednesday pending an investigation, a police department spokesman confirmed to The Post.

Ortiz, who previously oversaw the department’s SWAT operations, is expected to be off the force indefinitely, Deputy Police Chief Ronald Papier told the Miami Herald.

Papier refused to indicate why Ortiz is being investigated, but the development follows Ortiz’s comments on Friday at a city commission meeting during which he claimed he was black instead of Hispanic while addressing allegations of discrimination within the police department.

“I am a black male,” Ortiz said, according to the Herald. “Yes, I am. And I am not Hispanic.”

Ortiz, the former president of the city’s police union, claimed he had black ancestry while citing the “one-drop rule,” insinuating that anyone with a single black ancestor is a person of color.

A former Gwinnett County sheriff’s deputy Aaron S. Masters, 27, has been indicted on federal charges after authorities said he used excessive force against a female inmate and lied about it in an incident report.

Claims filed say he repeatedly punched the inmate in the head in 2018 and then tried to justify the assault when he reported it. “We recognize that corrections officers have a difficult job as they maintain order and protect inmates in our district’s prisons and county jails,” Pak said. “However, this deputy sheriff must be held accountable for allegedly abusing his authority by committing a violent and unnecessary assault on an inmate, and then writing a false report to cover up the incident.”

WTH kind of deep state garbage is this!

The man behind the camera eloquently said everything I’ve ever wanted to say to these oath breakers! Rightfully so as well. I love how he sent that one cop off his property too! Someone answer me this… Is this minority report? Did we somehow teleport to the future? Why are these cops questioning him as if he already committed a crime?
