Former The Bachelor contestant Jubilee Sharpe, 28, was arrested for a DUI in West Palm Beach, Florida on Sunday.

And on Wednesday TMZ revealed that the reality TV vet had gone into a one-car accident before police arrived.

Dr Gowun Park, 41, was charged with first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in the death of her husband, Sung Nam, also 41, West Des Moines police said.

Park, was formally accused of killing her husband, Sung Woo Nam, in their West Des Moines home. She faces charges of first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in Nam’s death.

Students learned about the arrests Wednesday from the campus newspaper and an email message from Simpson interim President Bob Lane.

Simpson junior Thomas Mussig, an economics major who had Park as an academic adviser, said his classmates were making jokes about Park’s arrest, but he was near tears when he learned about it.

“She was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever known,” he said. “This is really tough.”

Mussig said he has had five classes with Park and worked with her on a research project. In all that time, Park never mentioned she was married: She would repeatedly say she was single and that all of her family was in South Korea.

“I had her in class for three years; she was saying that for three years,” he said. “She would talk about how she’s single.”

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”

A Rhode Island man who robbed the Bristol County Savings Bank in Attleboro Falls in 2016 while on a first date with a woman he met through a dating app has been sentenced to five years of incarceration.

Christopher Castillo, 33, of Chepachet, was sentenced in Fall River Superior Court to three years in prison for armed robbery followed by another two years in jail for assaulting three police officers who arrested him, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn III said in a statement on Tuesday.

Castillo went into the bank on Commonwealth Avenue, near the Falls Elementary School, on Dec. 5, 2016, showed the teller a gun that was in his jacket and demanded $1,000. He told the teller he was “really hurting” and needed money, according to the DA’s office.

After he was given the cash, Castillo ran out of the bank and got into a Nissan Maxima that police spotted as it left nearby Mason Field and then as it headed to Dunkin’ Donuts at the corner of Elm and Mount Hope streets.

According to the DA’s office, the woman who was driving the car got out of the vehicle, however, and Castillo ducked down. Police pulled him out of the car and he struggled with police officers, spitting at them. During the struggle, Castillo told police the gun wasn’t loaded.

After eventually handcuffing Castillo, police found a .44 caliber gun in the car along with sunglasses and a hat that matched the items the bank robber was wearing. Also found in the defendant’s wallet was the $1,000 in cash.

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 remains of a woman who died in an apparent dumpster-diving mishap have been discovered in a landfill.

Stephanie Cox, 30, disappeared on January 30 after climbing into a dumpster behind the Alamance Crossing shopping center in Burlington, North Carolina.

Stephanie Cox, 30, was reported missing to the Greensboro Police Department on January 30. Her vehicle was found unattended in a service drive behind a row of businesses in Burlington, and police determined the vehicle had not been reported stolen.
After an investigation, police said they believed Cox was attempting to collect things from a dumpster shortly after midnight and that she did not exit the dumpster prior to its being serviced at 1:47 a.m. According to the police, Cox’s family said that it was not uncommon for her to collect items from dumpsters.

A review of associated video shows that she arrived alone and that no one else was on the property until the garbage truck arrived to service the dumpster, police said.

“This case brings to light the dangers associated with collections from dumpsters,” Burlington Police said. “The commonly known practice of ‘dumpster diving’ is not safe.”

A 5-year-old boy in Southern California died after being mauled by a family’s pit bull. According to KCBS, the cousin of the young boy and another relative were babysitting the 5-year-old right before he was killed. They said they stepped out of the room for a second to get a video game controller, but when they re-entered the room, the pit bull had its jaws around the little boy’s neck. The family said it had the 12-year-old pit bull since it was a puppy and trusted it around children. “All we did was step out for two seconds,” one of the relatives told KCBS. The relative declined to be identified on camera. “It hurts. It really hurts.” The relative said the dog had never hurt anyone before, claiming it wasn’t vicious. The family signed the pit bull’s ownership over to animal control and the dog was taken away. Police are now investigating the circumstances surrounding the deadly dog attack.
