Actor Arrested For Involvement at U.S. Capitol Insurrection on January 6th
by Kyle Hicks






(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — An actor who appeared on the TV show “The Inbetweeners” has reportedly been charged in connection with the U.S. Capitol insurrection on January 6th.

The Los Angeles Times and NBC News report that 33-year-old Michael Aaron Carico was arrested in California last Wednesday and charged with several counts related to his alleged role in the storming of the Capitol as Congress confirmed the Electoral College results.

According to a federal criminal complaint obtained by the news outlets, photos and video acquired by law enforcement show Carico on the grounds of the Capitol.

In the footage, court documents reportedly say Carico is seen singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” in a crowd before he mentions House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by her first name.

Law enforcement officers say they’ve also obtained footage of Carico climbing a ladder to the platform on top of the media tower at the Capitol.

The complaint says officers were able to match the clothing that Carico was wearing at the Capitol with clothes seen on his Instagram account, NBC News reports.

Among other charges, Carico is being charged with entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct, the L.A. Times reports.

Carico’s IMDB credits show he played a character named Bobby in multiple episodes of the British sitcom “The Inbetweeners,” as well as roles in other projects.

Capitol Rioter Accused of Beating Officer With Flag Pole, Faces 40-Year Sentence
by Ewan Palmer







A federal jury has indicted an Arkansas man on a number of charges after he allegedly used a flag pole to beat a police officer during the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Peter Stager, 41, is accused of using a dangerous or deadly weapon to "forcibly assault, resist, impose, impede, intimidate and interfere with an officer," in Washington, DC, last month, according to an indictment unsealed on Wednesday.

Stager is facing a total of seven charges including entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon, and engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon, in connection to the attack.

Two of the charges against Stager—"obstruction of an official proceeding and aiding and abetting" and "assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers using a dangerous weapon"—carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in jail.

Mad Bomber At The U.S. Capitol Surrenders!
by Brian Naylor






A white man who claimed to have a bomb in his pickup truck in front of the Library of Congress has surrendered, ending an hours-long standoff Thursday.

The suspect — identified by authorities as Floyd Ray Roseberry, 49, from Grover, N.C. — is now in custody.

"He gave up, did not resist, and our folks were able to take him into custody," U.S. Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger said Thursday.

"We don't know what his motives are at this time."

Manger said police negotiated with Roseberry by writing on a whiteboard.

Eventually police used a robot in an attempt to give him a phone to communicate with, but Manger said Roseberry declined to use it.

Manger said shortly afterward Roseberry got out of the vehicle and he was taken into custody without incident.

The truck has been removed from the scene.

The U.S. Capitol Police did not find a bomb in the vehicle, but said that "possible bomb making materials were collected from the truck."

Manger said that Roseberry's mother had recently died and that according to his family, "there were other issues that he was dealing with."

Earlier Thursday, law enforcement officers from Cleveland County, N.C., as well as federal law enforcement officials went to Roseberry's residence, said Philip Todd, chief deputy of the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office.

"As far as I know, the FBI has interviewed the wife, and she is cooperating," Todd told NPR's Carrie Johnson.

Several hours after the report of the incident, fakebook said it had deactivated a livestream, purportedly of the suspect in his truck.

"Not only deactivated the livestream, but we also removed his profile from Facebook and are continuing to investigate," Andy Stone, director of policy communications at fakebook, said on Twitter.

In at least one of the videos, a man can be seen making anti-government remarks as well as saying he had ammonium nitrate in his truck's toolbox.

Georgia DA Booked For Misconduct
by Ny Magee





Former Georgia district attorney Jackie Johnson turned herself into the Glynn County Sheriff’s office Wednesday morning after being indicted for alleged mishandling of the Ahmaud Arbery case.

Johnson was indicted last week on misconduct charges alleging she used her position to shield the men who chased and killed Arbery from being charged with crimes immediately after the shootings, theGrio previously reported.

A grand jury in coastal Glynn County indicted the former Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney on charges of violating her oath of office and hindering a law enforcement officer.

As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Johnson was released from the Glynn County Detention Center on a $10K bond.

Arbery was killed February 23rd, 2020, after a white father and son, Greg and Travis McMichael, armed themselves and pursued the 25-year-Black man in a pickup truck after spotting him running in their neighborhood outside the coastal city of Brunswick.

A neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan joined the chase and took cellphone video of Travis McMichael shooting Arbery at close range with a shotgun.

The McMichaels said they believed Arbery was a burglar and that they shot him in self-defense after he attacked Travis McMichael with his fists.

The three suspected white supremacists remained free for more than two months, as the police did not charge any of them immediately following the killing.

Johnson was the county’s top prosecutor at the time.

All three were ultimately charged with murder in May 2020 and will face trial this fall.

Johnson insists she did nothing wrong because she immediately recused the DA’s office from handling the case because Greg McMichael was working as an investigator there at the time.

He reportedly left her a cell phone message following the shooting.

She recommended an outside prosecutor, Waycross Judicial Circuit District Attorney George Barnhill, who was appointed to the case and concluded no charges were warranted.

Barnhill later stepped aside after Arbery’s family noted he had a son working for Johnson as an assistant prosecutor.

Johnson lost her bid for reelection last year.

“Yesterday was a very huge win,” Wanda Cooper Jones, Arbery’s mother, told reporters last week after Johnson’s indictment was announced.

“I’m speechless. Unfortunately, Ahmaud is not here with us today. But losing Ahmaud, it will change some things here in the state of Georgia.” 

If convicted, Johnson faces one to five years for violating her oath of office, per CBS.

The obstruction charge is punishable by up to a year in jail.

Two Florida white Boys Planned a Columbine-style School Shooting
by Wilson Wong






Two white teenagers were arrested Thursday after authorities said they plotted to commit a mass shooting at a Florida middle school.

The 13- and 14-year-old boys were charged with conspiracy to commit a mass shooting after a student told a teacher that one of them had a gun in his backpack Wednesday at Harns Marsh Middle School in Lehigh Acres, about 15 miles east of Fort Myers, Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno said during a press conference.

"This could have been the next Parkland massacre, but we stopped them in the planning stages," Marceno said, referring to the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people dead.

Marceno continued:

"We were one second away from a Columbine here. I’m certain that my team of dedicated deputies and detectives acted promptly, investigated thoroughly and prevented a very violent and dangerous act from being carried out.”

Investigators searched an eighth grader's bag after they were tipped off, but did not find a gun, the sheriff's office said.

Instead deputies found a map of where the school's security cameras were located.

An investigation determined that the teens were allegedly studying the April 20th, 1999, Columbine massacre that was planned by two troubled students who murdered a dozen classmates and a teacher before they killed themselves, Marceno said.

Authorities also accused the teens of trying to learn how to construct pipe bombs and how to buy firearms off the black market.

Deputies executed search warrants at both students' homes and found a gun and several knives, according to the sheriff's office.

In total, Marceno said authorities searched the boys' home nearly 80 times.

The two boys were evaluated at a mental health facility, according to Marceno.

Harns Marsh Middle School and Lee County Schools District did not immediately respond to an NBC News request for comment Friday.

Principal Alex Dworzanski told NBC affiliate WBBH of Fort Myers that the school was safe.

“I commend the students who came forward to report the threat and the quick action of the staff,” Dworzanski said.

“The safety of our students and staff is at the core of what we do.”

South Carolina white Guy Plans His Own Shooting
by Adam Mintzer and Ray Rivera







(HAMPTON COUNTY, South Carolina)—The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division says Alex Murdaugh planned his own shooting.

According to the agency, Murdaugh asked another man to shoot and kill him so his son could collect a $10 million life insurance policy.

In an insurance fraud warrant, SLED says Murdaugh gave 61-year-old Colleton County man Curtis Smith a weapon and told Smith to shoot him.

Smith then followed Murdaugh on Old Salkehatchie Road on September 4th and shot Murdaugh as he was standing on the road.

Smith then got rid of the gun at an “unknown location,” according to SLED.

Smith was arrested Tuesday.

He is charged with assisted suicide, assault and battery of a high aggravated nature, pointing and presenting a firearm, insurance fraud, and conspiracy to commit insurance fraud.

However, the agency said that more charges are “expected” and will be released “at the appropriate time.”

SLED says Murdaugh admitted to the plan on September 13th and Smith admitted to the conspiracy the day after.

The SLED investigation was requested by the Hampton County Sheriff’s Office.

Smith was booked at the Colleton County Detention Center. The case will be prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.

On Monday, SLED officials confirmed that it has opened an investigation into Alex Murdaugh’s alleged misappropriation of funds from the law firm his family founded.

The South Carolina Supreme Court suspended Murdaugh’s license to practice law last Wednesday days after he was accused of taking money from the law firm.

One of Alex Murdaugh’s lawyers, Jim Griffin said the allegations of financial impropriety prompted Murdaugh to confront his substance dependency and voluntarily check into an in-patient substance abuse rehab facility.

LIFE!
by The Associated Press






(MARION, Indiana) — A northern Indiana woman convicted of murder in the strangulation death of her 10-year-old stepdaughter was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Amanda Carmack, of Gas City, was sentenced during a hearing Wednesday.

A jury convicted her last month on murder, strangulation, neglect and battery charges in the killing of Skylea Carmack.

She was arrested days after her stepdaughter’s body was found in trash bags in a shed behind the family’s home in September of 2019.

When questioned by police, Amanda Carmack admitted to strangling the girl in the shed.

Carmack first stood trial for the killing last year, but the judge declared a mistrial after four people involved in the proceedings tested positive for COVID-19.

She was retried this year and convicted.

‘Dazed and Confused’
by Francesca Bacardi






He was certainly dazed and confused.

Actor Jason London was reportedly arrested for public intoxication in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, late Tuesday after police discovered him behind the wheel of a 2010 Nissan Maxima that was stuck in a ditch and on fire, TMZ reported.

The “Dazed and Confused” actor, 48, allegedly smelled of alcohol and couldn’t keep his balance — all in addition having slurred speech.

Cops investigated the scene and believe the “Out Cold” star swerved off the road, mowed down a sign, got back on the road, and then hit a concrete object before driving into a ditch where he and his passenger were discovered.

It appears no one was injured, as TMZ reports the passenger was standing near the car when they arrived.

According to TMZ, London claimed someone “had sideswiped them and run them off the road.”

The actor was booked in Jackson County jail for for public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident.

Mr. Potato Head Arrested!!!
by Jessica Bennett







The 'War Games' actor Eddie Deezen was busted at a Maryland restaurant Thursday for allegedly going on a rampage in which he refused to leave and threw plates and food at cops, according to a report.

The 64-year-old was hauled out of the LaVale, Maryland, eatery Thursday — wearing handcuffs but no shirt — for “causing a scene” that required police to respond, TMZ said.

Cops claim Deezen attempted to hide behind a woman sitting in a booth when they showed up and refused multiple demands to exit the building, resulting in him being forcibly removed.

As they tried to take him out, Deezen started tossing everything from plates and food to bowls and other items at the officers, striking one of them, the report said.

Earlier this year, the actor was involved in another incident at a Maryland eatery, where he was accused of allegedly harassing a waitress and detailing his infatuation with her via fakebook.

“Eddie Deezen is a fvcking CREEP who comes into my work at least once a week, calls and asks other servers for my schedule, and if he comes in and I’m not wearing makeup HE LEAVES,” wrote waitress Kara Lashbaugh on Twitter back in June with screengrabs of Deezen’s all-caps posts about her.

“And this grown-ass old man has the balls to post this on fakebook about me I’m losing my mind.”

Former O.C. sheriff’s deputy charged with stealing dead woman’s credit cards
by The Associated Press





A former Orange County sheriff’s deputy stole credit cards from a dead woman’s Yorba Linda home and used them to make purchases from QVC and an automotive parts store, prosecutors said Friday.

The charges come after Steve Hortz was previously indicted on multiple felonies in connection with breaking into the home of a dead man to steal more than $27,000 in guns and other items in July 2020.

He has pleaded not guilty, and that case is ongoing.

The Orange County district attorney’s office announced Hortz’s second case Friday.

His arraignment is scheduled for October 26th.

Hortz’s attorney, Shaheen Manshoory, said prosecutors have not turned over much information in the case.

“At this time, we will let the process play out in court,“ Manshoory said in an email Friday.

Authorities arrested Hortz last year in that first case, alleging that the 12-year veteran had responded to the man’s home in Yorba Linda for a welfare check on July 20th, 2020, and found the homeowner dead of natural causes.

Hortz allegedly returned to the home several times — including once on duty wearing his deputy uniform — to steal the man’s belongings.

The burglaries were captured on home surveillance video, and a probate attorney reported the thefts to the Sheriff’s Department.

Hortz was arrested on September 10th, 2020, and resigned 20 days later instead of being fired.

He was indicted on three felony counts of second-degree burglary and two felony counts of grand theft of a firearm.

Authorities have since discovered that in August 2020 — before Hortz was identified as a suspect in the deceased man’s case — he was called to the home of a dead woman in Yorba Linda, where he allegedly stole three credit cards.

Prosecutors allege that he tried to make thousands of dollars’ worth of unauthorized online purchases — the majority of which were declined — and have some of them sent to his home.

Hortz was charged Friday with one felony count of identity theft, one felony count of grand theft embezzlement, and four felony counts of attempted grand theft.

He faces four years and four months in state prison if convicted in the credit card case.
