'Bob's Burgers' actor may be involved in alleged Capitol Insurrection
by Joshua Zitser






An actor identified as attending the insurrection on January 6th has been "banned" from voicing a character in the animated TV show "Bob's Burgers," according to The Daily Beast.

Jay Johnston, who is the voice of Jimmy Pesto Sr. in the critically-acclaimed fox show, has been noticeably absent from the 12th season of"Bob's Burgers."

And two sources told The Daily Beast that the actor wouldn't be returning to the show to voice the animated pizzeria owner.

One of the sources told the media outlet that the cast and crew of "Bob's Burgers" and Fox were not looking to make "a big deal" about the actor's blacklisting.


It has not been proven that Johnston, who also appeared in the movie "Anchorman," was present at the Capitol riot[yet].

According to the fact-checking website Snopes, the origin of the allegation is a photograph posted by the FBI in March on social media of a person that looks like him.

Internet sleuths suggested it was Johnston, and Snopes reported that "Bob's Burgers" co-star Tim Heidecker said in a now-deleted tweet that it was "fully confirmed" through "reliable sources" that the FBI photo was of his colleague.

Two other actors, Spencer Crittenden and Cassandra Church, who appeared with Johnston in the 2014 documentary "Harmontown," posted messages saying that he had attended the rally and was a supporter of individual-1, Snopes said.

The person's identity in the photograph has not been confirmed, and Johnston has not been arrested or charged with any crime[yet].

Ex-Olympic speed skating medalist charged with stealing $10 million in COVID-19 aid to help finance Elijah Wood movie
by Nate Carlisle & Lukas I. Alpert








A federal grand jury has indicted former Olympic speedskater and Utah resident Allison Baver on nine counts that accuse her of lying to obtain $10 million from the Paycheck Protection Program.

The indictment was filed Wednesday in federal court in Salt Lake City.

A docket shows Baver, 41, has not yet entered a plea, but she has been issued a summons to be arraigned January 18th at the federal courthouse in Salt Lake City.

According to the indictment, on its PPP application, Allison Baver Entertainment claimed it had 430 employees and a monthly payroll of $4 million.

However, the indictment says she, in fact, had no employees and no payroll.

The grand jury indicted Baver on eight counts of making false statements to a bank and one count of money laundering.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney for Utah says Baver faces 30 years in prison on the bank fraud counts and 10 years on the money laundering count.

Baver has had an aspiring film career and recently had a small role in the film “No Man of God,” about killer Ted Bundy and starring actor Elijah Wood.

The indictment adds that Baver Entertainment transferred $150,000 to the film’s production company.

The PPP program was meant to help businesses keep employees and pay expenses they had before the pandemic — such as rent and utilities.

The program was not meant to provide capital.

The indictment says the government wants Baver, 41, to forfeit about $9.7 million of what she received.

Baver is a Pennsylvania native who moved to Utah to train for the Olympics.

She made three U.S. squads, winning a bronze medal with a relay team at the 2010 Vancouver games.

Erika Wulff Jones arrested on domestic violence charge
by Associated Press




                       

(DALLAS, Texas) — The wife of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was arrested Christmas Eve on a domestic violence charge that the right-wing provocateur said stems from a “medication imbalance.”

Sheriff’s deputies took Erika Wulff Jones into custody and booked her into an Austin jail around 8:45 p.m. Friday.

Jail records show the 43-year-old faces misdemeanor charges of assault causing bodily injury to a family member and resisting arrest, search or transport.

She had not received a bond Saturday afternoon.

Alex Jones, an Austin resident and founder of the right-wing media group Infowars, declined Saturday to say whether he’d been injured or elaborate on what happened beyond that he believes it was related to his wife’s recent change of medication.

“It’s a private family matter that happened on Christmas Eve,” Jones told The Associated Press in a brief interview.

“I love my wife and care about her and it appears to be some kind of medication imbalance.”

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to a request Christmas Day for the report on Wulff Jones’ arrest and a spokeswoman said she could not provide more information.

An attorney for Wulff Jones did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Jones sued this week seeking to block subpoenas he’d been issued by the House committee investigating the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Jones spoke at a rally in support of individual-1 that proceeded the riot and his Infowars colleague, Owen Shroyer, was charged with crimes related to it in August.

Shroyer has said he’s “innocent of the charges.”

Jones said his wife’s arrest “doesn’t concern my politics” and that “it wasn’t some kind of personal hateful thing or anything.”

Las Vegas white man arrested after police find severed head in his truck
by Kate Feldman






A Las Vegas man fleeing police in a stolen truck was eventually stopped, only for the officers to find coolers full of body parts, including a severed head, inside, according to cops.

Eric Holland, 57, was arrested Thursday after leading police on a chase when they tried to pull him over on unrelated charges, according to the police report from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released Sunday.

Holland allegedly switched trucks, then was eventually tracked to a nearby apartment complex.

As officers approached, Holland began throwing things, but was taken into custody, according to police.


When officers searched one of the stolen trucks, they found the coolers and the human remains, including the head, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

It’s unclear if the remains belonged to one or more victims.

Holland has been charged with using another person’s ID, auto embezzlement of more than $3,500, intent to use a false check and theft of more than $3,500 from outstanding warrants, as well as one charge of open murder, according to the Review-Journal.

Kardashian manager Angela Kukawski found dead near Los Angeles; boyfriend charged with murder & torture
by Joseph Wilkinson





A Los Angeles woman who worked as a business manager for the Kardashians and other celebrities was brutally murdered by her boyfriend last week, police said.

Angela Kukawski, 55, was found dead in a car in Simi Valley, just northwest of Los Angeles, on December 23rd, Los Angeles police said Wednesday in a press release.

Her boyfriend Jason Barker, 49, was arrested the same day and charged with her murder.

Los Angeles police said Angela Kukawski was killed by her boyfriend in their house in Sherman Oaks.

Cops also charged Barker with torture, saying he caused “cruel and extreme pain and suffering for the purpose of revenge, extortion, persuasion and for a sadistic purpose, (to) inflict great bodily injury,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

Police said Barker used a knife and a gun in the attack, according to the LA Times.

Kukawski died from blunt force injuries to her head and from strangulation, a local coroner determined.

Kukawski was first reported missing on December 22nd from her home in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles, about 20 miles southeast of where her body was found in Simi Valley.

Cops said Barker killed her at the Sherman Oaks home and then put her body in the car and drove to Simi Valley, where he parked the vehicle on a street.

Barker was being held on $3 million bail as of Wednesday night.

Kukawski worked with several high-profile clients, including the Kardashians, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Offset, according to Variety.

She also worked with Tupac’s estate.

In an Instagram post, Minaj described her as the “Hardest working, most reliable, sweetest person you could ever know. You didn’t deserve this, Angela. My heart is breaking for your children. Rest In Peace.”
