White Captured!
by Alexis Stevens






A woman authorities say set fire to the Atlanta Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was fatally shot by an Atlanta police officer was arrested Tuesday afternoon, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office said.

Natalie Hanna White, 29, was arrested outside her attorney’s office shortly before 3 p.m., Eric Heinze, deputy commander with the U.S. Marshals Service, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

It was a joint effort among various law enforcement agencies, including the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office.

White was seen earlier in the day in Gwinnett County and investigators tracked her to an office park, where she was arrested without incident, Heinze said.

White Woman Confronted Over Not Wearing Mask In Home Depot
by Marina Pitofsky



An Illinois woman has been charged with battery and disorderly conduct after a fight in a Home Depot that began as a disagreement over wearing face masks.

Teri Hill, 54, was charged with battery and disorderly conduct Friday, the McHenry Police Department confirmed to The Hill. She was arrested after officers reviewed video footage of the incident and statements from witnesses.

Jessica Waters, the alleged victim, said the incident began when Hill approached a store employee at the Home Depot in McHenry, Illinois to complain about fellow shoppers not wearing masks, according to multiple reports.


After Waters said that Hill herself should be wearing a mask, things escalated, with Hill saying that nobody could tell her what to do and at one point telling Waters that she did not believe she had to wear a mask because of "white power," the Chicago Tribune reported.

Waters began filming with her cell phone, which shows Hill making the comments and raising her middle finger. Waters later posted the video to fakebook.

Waters is heard in the video obtained by the affiliate ABC13 telling the woman that "the entitlement is disgusting."

"Yes, I am entitled. I'm white and I'm a woman," Hill replies.

"What does you being white have to do with you being able to get your way?" Waters responded.


"Because I'm a white woman. That's what happens," Hill added, saying that "I believe in white power."

As Waters continued trying to film the incident, the Hill allegedly hit her, and the two women ended up fighting on the ground.

Waters said she was left with bruises, ABC13 reported.

Since her arrest, Hill has been released and is set to appear in court on August 19th, the McHenry Police Department confirmed to The Hill.

White woman drove into protesters in Indiana hit-and-run is arrested!
by ABC News







Bloomington police arrested a 66-year-old Indiana woman in a hit-and-run crash that injured two protesters, officials said Thursday.

Christi Bennett was arrested late Wednesday and charged with two counts of criminal recklessness, a felony.

She was also charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in serious bodily injury, a felony, and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in bodily injury, a misdemeanor.

Bloomington police said that at about 9:26 p.m., officers were called to the area after getting a report of a personal injury crash, and upon arriving learned a vehicle that injured protesters had fled the scene.

According to police, a male passenger in a red Toyota exited the car to move an electric scooter out of a blocked intersection.

A 29-year-old woman then stood in front of the car and put her hands on the hood.

Bennett allegedly accelerated, police said, causing the woman to go up onto the hood.

A 35-year-old man grabbed and clung to the side of the car as it "accelerated rapidly" down the street, police said.

Both victims were flung from the car when it quickly turned about two blocks from where it had first stopped, police said.

The 29-year-old victim was knocked unconscious and suffered a cut to her head, police said.

She was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where she was treated and released.

The 35-year-old victim had minor bruises, police said.

Police said witnesses provided them with a license plate number for the car and several videos of the incident.

On Wednesday, investigators were able to track down and detain Bennett, the registered owner of the car, and the passenger at a motel in Scottsburg, Indiana.

The unnamed passenger was interviewed and released.

Bennett and her lawyer declined to provide a statement, police said.

Bennett was booked into the Monroe County Jail and later released on a $,2000 surety and $500 cash bail.

The car was impounded to collect evidence.

Bennett is scheduled to appear in court on July 17th  for an initial hearing.

Federal government is due to execute its first inmate in 17 years after a court said it didn't need to pause due to COVID-19
by Ashley Collman






Barring a last minute order from the Supreme Court, the first federal inmate in 17 years is due to be executed on Monday.

Daniel Lewis Lee, 47, was convicted in the 1996 murders of a family of three in Arkansas.

His execution was postponed on Friday because of the coronavirus pandemic, but an appeals court overruled that decision.

After initially getting postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the first federal execution in nearly two decades is again due to take place on Monday.

Daniel Lewis Lee, 47, is scheduled to be put to death Monday afternoon at the US Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana.

He was convicted in the 1996 murders of William Mueller, his wife, Nancy, and her 8-year-old daughter, Sarah Powell.

Family members of the victims had initially petitioned the courts to delay the execution, saying it would be too dangerous for them to travel the prison during a pandemic.

There have been virus cases at the prison where Lee is being held.

Former USA Gymnastics Coach Terry Gray Arrested on 14 Charges of Lewdness with a Minor
by Benjamin VanHoose





Terry Gray, a former USA Gymnastics coach, has been arrested on multiple charges of lewdness with a minor.

On Friday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's sex crimes detectives arrested Gray, 52, on 14 counts of lewdness with a child under 14 years old, according to Clark County inmate records.

According to a press release, Gray was a gymnastics coach in Las Vegas from 2009 to 2015.

CNN reports that Gray has also coached in Ohio and California, though the charges only apply to Nevada and reportedly span alleged crimes between 2007 and 2013.

Gray was suspended in October by USA Gymnastics, the national governing body for the sport.

According to USAG's website, his two-year suspension was put in place after physical and sexual misconduct allegations as an investigation was launched, according to the U.S. Center for SafeSport's records.

Gray is set to appear in court on Monday morning.

He is currently being held without bail.

A spokesperson for USA Gymnastics did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

An attorney for Gray could not immediately be reached.

White man arrested at Black Lives Matter protest
by The Associated Press





(COLUMBIA, S.C.) - Police in South Carolina have arrested a man accused of pointing a gun at some “Black Lives Matter” demonstrators as he drove past the State House.

Authorities said Walter Peter Matulis Jr. was charged Saturday with pointing and presenting a firearm at a person, news outlets reported.

Two groups of protesters were outside the Capitol Friday on the fifth anniversary of the confederate flag's removal from the grounds.

One gathered to support the confederate flag; the other carried “Black Lives Matter” signs in opposition to this group.

Kamison Burgess, who was among these counter-protesters, told The State newspaper that this man driver stopped in the road, stuck his middle finger out at them, said “All Lives Matter” and pointed a gun at them before driving away.

Columbia police investigated using video taken by protesters, interviewed 64-year-old Matulis at his home and then arrested him.

Pointing a firearm is a felony.

Burglary suspect found hiding in Simi Valley in his underwear
by Hannah Fry






A 35-year-old man was arrested this week wearing nothing but his underwear after a Simi Valley resident called police to report that the man was trying to break into his home.

Officers responded to the home in the 1600 block of Hi Drive early Sunday after the resident reported that he was watching his security camera and saw a man trying to enter his window.

When officers arrived, they found clothing that had been left outside.


Authorities searched the area and found a man, later identified as Matthew Rey Scott, hiding in the neighborhood in his underwear.

Scott ran from officers before he was taken into custody on suspicion of attempted burglary, evading and a community release violation, police said.

Police did not specify the circumstances surrounding the alleged community release violation.

As of Tuesday, Scott remained in Ventura County Jail in lieu of $135,000 bail.

Ex-Miss Kentucky sentenced to prison on sex crime charge
by Associated Press





(CHARLESTON, West Virginia) — A former Miss Kentucky who admitted to exchanging sexual photos with a teenage student when she was working as a West Virginia school teacher has been sentenced to prison.

Ramsey BethAnn Bearse, 29, received her two-year sentence in Kanawha County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

She was also sentenced to an additional 10 years of supervised release and must register as a sex offender for life, according to Kanawha Assistant Prosecutor Meshell Jarrett.

The former middle school educator pleaded guilty to one count of possessing material depicting minors in sexually explicit conduct in December 2019, news outlets reported.

She was initially charged with four counts of sending obscene material to a minor.

Authorities said Bearse admitted to exchanging photos with the student on Snapchat between August and October 2018.

A parent of the male student reported finding the images on the teen’s phone, news outlets said.

Bearse previously testified she meant to send a photo to her husband, but accidentally sent it to the teen.

She claimed the student asked for additional photos, so she continued to send them because she was "afraid to not appease him.”

Bearse said Tuesday that she accepted “full responsibility" for her actions.

Under her maiden name of Carpenter, Bearse was crowned Miss Kentucky in 2014 in the Miss America pageant.

She was suspended from her teaching position during the investigation, and the Kanawha County school district has said she no longer works there.

Man charged for allegedly pulling gun on Black Lives Matter mural bystander
by Stella Chan





A Northern California man is facing charges after allegedly pulling a gun on a person standing near a Black Lives Matter mural earlier this month, according to the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors say Joseph Osuna, 30, was driving his 2015 Jeep Wrangler near the mural painted in front of the courthouse in Martinez on July 5th when he began yelling at people standing near the mural and exchanged words with one of them.

The district attorney's office says Osuna made a U-turn, got out of the car, pulled out a loaded revolver and pointed it at the bystander.

"He rolled by us and yelled at everybody and flipped us off, so I got on my skateboard just kinda followed him to get the plates. He made a U-turn, came back at me and pointed a gun in my face, said 'You want to do something?' That's it, a cop was behind him, immediately pulled him over, thank God," a witness at the scene told CNN affiliate KGO.

Officers from the Martinez Police Department stopped Osuna and found the gun -- not registered to him -- in his car, the DA's office said.

CNN affiliate KGO recorded video of the arrest.

Contra Costa County District Attorney spokesman Scott Alonso confirmed to CNN the man seen in the video is indeed Osuna.

He is charged with unlawful firearm activity and possessing a firearm not registered to him, both felonies, as well as a misdemeanor of exhibiting a concealed weapon in public.

He could face up to three years in custody if found guilty.

CNN was unable to locate contact information for Osuna.

The DA's office did not know if the man had an attorney. Osuna will be sent a notice to appear in court, Alonso said.

Two other people, in a separate incident, are facing a hate crime charge and multiple misdemeanor charges for allegedly defacing that same mural during the July 4th holiday weekend.

Black man arrested for using white bathroom
by The State Times







John Lewis was arrested for using a "white" bathroom in Jackson, Mississippi.

Lewis, then 21, was imprisoned for over a month at the notorious Mississippi State Penitentiary, also known as Parchman Farm, on charges of "disorderly conduct" for using a bathroom labelled "white."

Lewis and other Black activists were confronted by a police officer in the "white" bathroom of a Jackson bus station.

The group were arrested after they refused to comply with the officer's demand that they leave.

About two years later, Lewis became chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.

He was known as one of the "Big Six" who helped organize the 1963 March on Washington and was the youngest speaker at the march, which also saw Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. deliver his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech.

Lewis's activism led to a long career in politics.

He was elected as the U.S. Representative for Georgia's 5th Congressional District in 1986, where he has served ever since.

white man blows COVID-19 relief funds on Lamborghini, dating sites & hotel stays
by Tamar Lapin





A Florida man allegedly scammed nearly $4 million from the US government’s coronavirus relief loan program — and used some of the cash on a brand-new Lamborghini and other luxury items, authorities said Monday.

David T. Hines was charged with bank fraud, making false statements to a financial institution and engaging in transactions in unlawful proceeds in a criminal complaint unsealed Monday.

Hines, 29, of Miami, initially tried to get $13.5 million from the Payment Protection Program through applications on behalf of different companies, by saying he needed the money for employee payroll purposes.

Turns out “those purported employees either did not exist or earned a fraction of what Hines claimed in his PPP applications,” the affidavit states.

The bank eventually approved three of the loans totaling $3.9 million.


Within a few days of pocketing the cash, Hines allegedly bought a 2020 Lamborghini Huracán valued at more than $318,000.

He also spent thousands of dollars on dating websites, jewelry and clothes and stays at posh hotels in Miami Beach, the complaint alleges.

Federal investigators linked the sports car to Hines after he was involved in a hit-and-run incident on July 11th, The Miami Herald reported.

Miami police impounded the vehicle, which federal prosecutors now plan to seize.

When the bank froze Hines’ companies’ accounts on June 24, and they showed a balance of $3,463,162 but no repayments on the loans.

Hines was arrested Friday.

He was granted release on $100,000 bond by U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge John O’Sullivan during his first court appearance on Monday.

He will be allowed to stay at his mother’s home with a GPS monitor.

His arraignment is scheduled for October 14th.

Adult film legend Ron Jeremy pleads not guilty to raping 3 women & sexually assaulting a 4th
by Julius Young






Adult film star Ron Jeremy pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles courtroom on Friday to charges of raping three women and sexually assaulting another.

Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, entered into a not guilty plea at his arraignment to three counts each of forcible rape and forcible penetration by a foreign object and one count each of forcible oral copulation and sexual battery.

The 67-year-old wore a bright orange jumpsuit and a county jail-issued orange-and-black face covering as he sat inside of a glass enclosure meant for in-custody defendants.

The judge declined to reduce his $6.6 million bail and ordered him back in court for another hearing on August 31st.

Jeremy previously denied the allegations through his lawyer Stuart Goldfarb.

Jeremy was arrested Tuesday and has had an initial court appearance.

Prosecutors in the case allege Jeremy raped a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood in 2014.



He is also accused of sexually assaulting two women, ages 33 and 46, on separate occasions at the same West Hollywood bar in 2017.



The final charge against him is for allegedly raping a 30-year-old woman at that same bar in July 2019.

Hackers
by Kate Conger and Nathaniel Popper







(OAKLAND, California) — The authorities said on Friday that a Florida teenager was the “mastermind” of a recent high-profile hack of 130 Twitter accounts, including the accounts of celebrities like former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and the Silicon Valley mogul Elon Musk.

Graham Ivan Clark, 17, was arrested in his Tampa home early Friday, state officials said.

He is believed to be the linchpin of a hack that turned into an embarrassment for Twitter and called into question the security measures of a range of tech companies.

Two other people were also charged with taking part in the hack.

Federal authorities were already tracking Mr. Clark before the Twitter hack.

In April, the Secret Service seized over $700,000 worth of Bitcoin from him, according to legal documents.

The Tampa youth faces 30 felony charges, including fraud, and is being charged as an adult.

The Twitter hack began on July 15 as an effort to steal and sell unusual user names.

It quickly escalated, as the hackers took over accounts belonging to cryptocurrency companies and celebrities.

The scheme netted Bitcoin worth more than $180,000.

Federal authorities also brought charges against Mason John Sheppard, 19, of the United Kingdom, and Nima Fazeli, 22, of Orlando, Florida.

The specific charges REDACTED faces are:

ORGANIZED FRAUD (OVER $50,000) – 1 count

COMMUNICATIONS FRAUD (OVER $300) – 17 counts

FRAUDULENT USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION (OVER $100,000 OR 30 OR MORE VICTIMS) – 1 count

FRAUDULENT USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION – 10 counts

ACCESS COMPUTER OR ELECTRONIC DEVICE WITHOUT AUTHORITY (SCHEME TO DEFRAUD) – 1 count

They are accused of acting as brokers during the hack by selling stolen Twitter user names.

The hackers tweeted from 45 of the accounts, gained access to the direct messages of 36 accounts, and downloaded full information from seven accounts.

They gained access to internal Twitter systems by stealing login information from employees, then used their access to reset passwords on the accounts.

“While investigations into cyber breaches can sometimes take years, our investigators were able to bring these hackers into custody in a matter of weeks,” said John Bennett, a special agent in charge with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.



“Cyber criminals will not find sanctuary behind their keyboards.”

In a statement, Twitter thanked law enforcement for its “swift actions” and said it would continue to cooperate with the investigation.

Hackers involved in the breach told The New York Times that they had been quietly selling stolen user names when one person in their group, who went by the name Kirk, suddenly launched the Bitcoin scam before disappearing.

One of the hackers, who used the screen name “ever so anxious,” said he was motivated to participate because he wanted to acquire unique usernames.

During the hack, he took the Twitter handle “@anxious” for himself.

“i just kinda found it cool having a username that other people would want,” “ever so anxious” said in a chat with The Times.

A special agent with an Internal Revenue Service investigative unit identified “ever so anxious” as Mr. Sheppard in a court filing.

“Working together, we will hold this defendant accountable,” Andrew Warren, the state attorney of Hillsborough County, Fla., said in a statement.

“Scamming people out of their hard-earned money is always wrong. Whether you’re taking advantage of someone in person or on the internet, trying to steal their cash or their cryptocurrency — it’s fraud, it’s illegal, and you won’t get away with it.”
