Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office

A Florida inmate who assaulted a deputy is facing additional felony charges tacked on to his original drug and gun possession charges.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said 38-year-old inmate Michler Gabriel will face additional felony charges after he assaulted one of their deputies at the Orient Road Jail on Tuesday morning.

Surveillance video shows Gabriel waiting impatiently for the deputy to unlock a door to exit a jail pod. The deputy pushed Gabriel away from the door twice, but Gabriel refused to back away. At one point, Gabriel sucker punched the deputy.

Another deputy who witnessed the assault subdued Gabriel and held him until more deputies arrived.

The deputy was transported to Tampa General Hospital for treatment. The Sheriff's office said the deputy was treated for facial bruises, swelling and lacerations.

Gabriel was being held at the jail on multiple charges including: driving on a suspended license, possession of a controlled substance, possession of weed, armed drug trafficking, possession of cocaine, felony weapons possession and carrying a concealed firearm.

WRBL reports that Gabriel now faces additional charges of battery on a law enforcement officer and battery by a detained person, both felonies.

"While I am thankful that the deputy involved was not seriously hurt, we will make sure that Gabriel is prosecuted to the fullest extent for his actions," said Sheriff Chad Chronister.

Lil Durk (right) is linked to yet another shooting - this time it's fatal. A teenager who was featured in a viral video with rapper Lil Durk's artist, OTF Dede (left), was shot to death on Sunday, January 19.

Chicago police say a 17-year-old female was shot and killed in a vacant lot in the 6700 block of South Parnell Avenue around 6:30 p.m.

Witnesses say three males pulled up in a silver sedan. They got out of the sedan and one of the males fired shots at her.

OTF Dede was forced to perform oral sex on the girl in a video that went viral. Thugs reportedly set him up with her in a hotel room.

They later burst into the room and forced OTF Dede to perform oral sex on the girl at gunpoint. The girl was menstruating at the time.

Police believe OTF Dede's enemies killed the teen to shut her up.

The rapper was beaten, robbed and his braids were cut off. The video went viral on social media.

Following the attack, Lil Durk tweeted: "The Internet is the news version of the streets just more snitching."

Lil Durk, a 27-year-old Chicago native, is currently out on bond following his arrest for attempted murder in Atlanta last year.

A man who brutally beat his girlfriend on surveillance video at his workplace was released from jail on an appearance ticket Tuesday.

Jay Vazquez-Paulino was seen on video repeatedly punching and kicking his girlfriend at the Superior Package Company, where he works. At one point in the video, he is seen going outside to retrieve a knife.

He then reentered the building and threw the knife at the young woman, barely missing her head by inches.

As Vazquez-Paulino cruelly punched and kicked his girlfriend, his co-workers filed past, apparently uncaring or unwilling to help the woman.

Vazquez-Paulino's criminal charges included criminal possession of a weapon, attempted assault, and harassment.

"The fact that he is captured on video goes further showing the strength of the case and the fact that he did have an intention to do harm here," said Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler.

"The real issue here is that this gentleman was released with a ticket and given an order of protection and again is free to terrorize this woman, which in domestic cases there should be bail and ... a cooling off period to allow parties to cool off."

New Yorkers expressed outrage at Mayor Bill de Blasio and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo over their no cash bail reform that went into effect on January 1.

The cash bail reform bill prevents cash bail for "non-violent" criminals who normally can't afford to post bond.

But residents say cash bail is necessary to keep a certain element of criminals off the streets. The sad truth is that detainees who can't afford bond tend to be the most violent and commit more crimes.

A serial bank robber who robbed a 6th bank after he was released without cash bail on Jan. 8 turned himself in on Friday, Jan. 17.

"I can't believe they let me out," Gerod Woodberry said as police handed him two $25 gift cards and a free transit voucher when he was released on Jan. 8.

A pretrial hearing scheduled for Sunday was canceled when Woodberry's family was unable to demonstrate how much money they could put up to spring him again, the NY Daily News reported.

Fed up prosecutor Jack Dennehy asked Sunday that Woodberry be held without bail, arguing he is "a danger to the community." But Magistrate Judge Steven Gold said Woodberry will get bail, according to the News.

Rapper Pop Smoke was arrested for allegedly stealing and transporting a $375,000 Rolls-Royce from California to New York.

The 20-year-old, whose real name is Bashar Jackson, was arrested on Friday, Jan. 17, at JFK airport after arriving on a flight from Paris, France where he attended Paris Fashion Week.

The 2019 Rolls-Royce was found parked outside his parents' home in the Canarsie area of Brooklyn. The license plate had been changed and the windows had been tinted, authorities say.

The rapper told police he "borrowed" the car for a music video, according to an indictment.

The Brooklyn native is accused of arranging to transport the Rolls-Royce cross country on the back of a flatbed truck.

A photo posted on Instagram shows him posing in front of the stolen luxury vehicle at a gas station. The image has since been deleted from Instagram, but it can be viewed on Facebook.com.

Jackson is charged with interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, a felony. The car has since been returned to its rightful owner.

Thanks to NY state's no cash bail reform, Jackson was released after a court appearance on Friday. He is best knowns for his rap singles "Welcome to the Party" and "Dior" off his debut mixtape Meet the Woo.

A former manager at a McDonald's in Minneapolis has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for repeatedly raping a 14-year-old employee inside a cooler.

Andrew Otero Albertorio, of Maple Grove, pleaded guilty on Nov. 25 to multiple charges of rape. He was sentenced this week. Prosecutors were seeking 12 years behind bars.

Albertorio, 25, apologized to the victim and her family in court as part of his plea deal.

According to the criminal complaint, the 14-year-old victim began working at McDonald's in the summer of 2018. Albertorio, who worked as the night manager, discussed having sex with her on multiple occasions, but she told him she didn't want to.

In December, prosecutors allege Albertorio cornered the underage girl inside the restaurant’s cooler where he pressured her into having sex.

Over the next month, Albertorio had sex with her in numerous locations.

A convicted sex offender has been charged with burying an Alabama woman who went missing from a bar after texting a friend that she was in trouble.

Paighton Houston's body was found wrapped in fabric and buried in a shallow grave behind a dilapidated house in Hueytown, Alabama, days after she went missing from a country music bar.

Convicted sex offender Fredrick Hampton, 50, was charged with abuse of a corpse. A warrant has been issued for his arrest but he has not been charged with her death.

Houston, 29, was last seen on Dec. 20 at Tin Roof live music bar in the 2700 block of Seventh Avenue South in Birmingham's Lakeview District. She arrived at the bar earlier that night with a co-worker.

After leaving the bar willingly with two Black men, Houston texted her co-worker to say she felt "in trouble."

According to Houston's mother, Paighton texted "if I call answer, I don't know these people and I feel in trouble."

Trussville police say Houston died the day after she was last seen at the bar.

A tip led investigators to the empty house on Chapel Hill Drive in Hueytown.

After sifting through a mound of trash in a "muddy, nasty" backyard, police discovered the shallow grave and unearthed Houston's "intact" body.

A coroner has not yet determined the cause and manner of Houston's death. They are awaiting additional testing, including toxicology results. There was no physical trauma to her body.

A GoFundMe account raised over $18,000 in donations.

When Odell Beckham Jr. spotted a man in uniform bend over during LSU's post-game celebrations at the College football championship, he couldn't help himself.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver slapped the male cop on his butt, resulting in an arrest warrant for simple sexual battery.

Police say the gender of the victim should not matter when determining if sexual battery has occurred.

The incident took place in the locker room after LSU won the National Championship at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana on Monday night.

Cell phone video shows Beckham staring intently at the officer's buttocks before delivering the butt slap.

The New Orleans Police Department issued the arrest warrant against the star receiver for inappropriately touching the heterosexual officer.

Beckham's criminal charge comes a month after Thomas Galloway, 43, was arrested for slapping a female reporter on the butt during a live TV news broadcast.

The Louisiana native also made headlines when he appeared to hand out cash to LSU players on the sideline during the game.

NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from accepting cash or goods from sports agents or college alumni. Beckham was a standout wide receiver at LSU. His father, Odell Beckham Sr., was a running back at LSU in the 1990s.

Beckham, 27, has battled homosexual rumors since being drafted in the 1st round by the NY Giants in 2014.

Serial bank robber Gerod Woodberry was shocked when a Manhattan Criminal Court judge let him go free without paying a cash bail after he knocked over another bank last week.

Woodberry, 42, was busted after allegedly hitting four Chase Bank branches in Chelsea, the Upper West Side and the West Village in one week.

On Jan. 9, he walked out of jail with a smile on his face. "I can't believe they let me out," he said as police handed him two $25 gift cards and a free transit voucher to take him anywhere he wanted to go.

"What were they thinking?" Woodberry said as he left.

According to the NY Post, Woodberry headed to a bank branch and slid a note to a teller.

He walked out of the bank $1,000 richer. It was his fifth bank robbery since December 30, 2019.

On Tuesday, he struck again. This time he entered the Citibank on Third Avenue near East 49th Street around 1:20 p.m. and passed a note to a teller.

"This is a robbery. Large bills only please," the note read, according to police sources.

But unlike his five previous bank heists, Woodberry fled empty handed, according to the Post.

"It fits the description and m.o. of him," said one high-ranking police source, referring to Woodberry, who is still at large.

When police do catch up to Woodberry, he will likely walk free again, thanks to his good manners and unfailing politeness while robbing banks without a weapon.

Woodberry's crime spree - and free get out of jail cards - are all thanks to NY mayor Bill de Blasio's no cash bail reform law that went into effect on Jan. 1.

The law prohibits cash bail for non-violent felony offenders - even bank robbers.

Manhattan Criminal Court judges have no choice but to let repeat offenders like Woodberry go free.

New Yorkers are furious over the new law. Many say they are growing frustrated with de Blasio and other Democrat lawmakers who have turned New York into a safe haven for criminals.

"It's a circus," one NYPD insider told the Post. "They made it this way, your local New York state politicians. Wait until a cop gets hurt responding, or a person fleeing the bank. We'll see how they feel after that."

The crime rate has gone "through the roof" according to a NY resident on Reddit.com.

One Long Island resident wrote that he lost a cousin who was killed by a drunk driver who had three previous DWIs. The resident said the driver was released without bail 10 days before he crashed into his cousin, killing him, while fleeing from police.

"He just walked out of the court room a free man with no bail again, while my family is planning a funeral," the resident wrote.

The suspect who pushed a landlord down the stairs to his death told cops the landlord fell down the stairs while moving a mattress. But the fatal push was caught on a Ring doorbell camera.

Police say Edgar Moncayo, 70, and his tenant Alex Garces, 22, began arguing over $200 for rental property Moncayo owned in Queens, NY.

According to the Ring camera footage obtained by the NY Daily News, Moncayo is seen trying to gain access to Garces's Corona apartment on Sunday afternoon. "Call the police!" he yelled to his wife on his cell phone.

Moncayo then attempted to force his way into the apartment when Garces opened the front door. During the struggle, Garces shoved Moncayo down the stairs. He landed on his back and his head slammed into the sidewalk at the foot of the steps. Moncayo was transported to a hospital where he died from a traumatic brain injury, police said.

Moncayo's family said Garces paid $400 to move into a room in the two-story house on 102nd St. and Northern Blvd. about a month ago, according to the News.

"The first month he paid, and then he was trying to disappear," grandson Andy Jativa told the News. Jativa said Moncayo tried to work with Garces by dropping the rent by $200. "My grandfather said, 'I'm even dropping the price for you. I'm not a bad person.'"

Garces agreed to move out, but Moncayo wanted at least $200 of the unpaid rent. "He was trying to get paid. What is $200? You can borrow that money," Jativa said.

On Sunday afternoon, Garces and his brother used a drill to break into the house to retrieve their belongings, Jativa said.

The fatal encounter occurred when Moncayo showed up and asked them to leave.

Garces and his brother remained at the scene. He told cops Moncayo fell accidentally while helping them move a mattress.

But the Ring doorbell camera told the true story.

After downloading the Ring footage, cops arrested Garces on Monday, taking him into custody at a home on 32nd Avenue.

His mother, Delia Velastegui, 50, was inconsolable. "Oh my God! It was an accident!" she wailed. "My son is a good son. He is not a fighter."

Garces was charged with first degree manslaughter. He was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on Tuesday, according to the News.

His bail was set at $25,000 after Garces' attorney Sanders Denis argued that he should be released without bail.

Denis called Moncayo's death "a sad and unfortunate incident." He avoided calling Moncayo's death an "accident."

"My client is the one who called the ambulance. When police came, he spoke to them," Denis said. "This is not intentional."

In 2016, a hungry 15-year-old boy named Chauncy Black approached Matthew Michael White in a Kroger parking lot. Chauncy asked Matt if he could take his groceries to his car in exchange for a box of glazed donuts for dinner.

"Something told me to go there and ask this guy if I can take his groceries to the car," Chauncy told WHBQ.

Matt later said he felt compelled to take the teen on a shopping spree in the grocery store.

When Matt dropped Chauncy off at his home in South Memphis, he was shocked by what he saw. Chauncy, his grandmother, whom he calls "mom", lived in squalid conditions and Chuancy didn't have a bed to sleep on.

Matt wrote about the encounter on his Facebook page and created a GoFundMe account. He described his chance meeting with the teenager as "God's beautiful design."

Within three months, donations to the GoFundMe account topped $342,000.

But Chauncy's story doesn't have a happy ending.

Chauncy, now 19, and his brother Timothy Black, 20, were arrested and charged with second-degree murder after one man was killed during a shootout in Cordova, Tennessee on Jan. 4.

They were also charged with tampering and fabricating evidence and reckless endangerment, according to Fox 13 Memphis.

According to an arrest affidavit, Chauncy and his brother told police a group of men drove to their house after an argument. One person in the car opened fire at the house.

Timothy and Chauncy ran inside the house, grabbed their firearms and fired back at the vehicle as it drove away at high speed.

26-year-old Kaleb Wakefield was hit by a stray bullet in a house across the street. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Chauncy and Timothy then hid their guns, which they did not have permits to carry, according to WREG.

Jaylin Edwards, the shooter inside the vehicle and his brother Tyrek Edwards were arrested and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and gun possession.

Chauncy's attorney, Ben Israel tells WREG that Chauncy did get most of the GoFundMe money after taxes were taken out.

"Some of the money was used to buy a home they stay in in Cordova," said Israel. "Some of the money was used to purchase lawn equipment for a lawn service company that Chauncy was running until he was arrested."

Israel is not sure how much of the money is left.

Chauncy's family said he fell in the with the wrong crowd after his story went viral in 2016.

A Minneapolis realtor was abducted and murdered by a drug dealer in retaliation for a dispute he had with her boyfriend.

Police say Monique Baugh, a 28-year-old mother of two, was shot and killed in an alleyway on Jan. 1, 2020.

Baugh, a real estate agent, was lured to an empty Maple Grove home under the pretense of showing the house on New Year's Day.

Two men rented a U-Haul truck for a friend Cedric Berry, a drug dealer who paid them in heroin.

Surveillance video from across the street shows Baugh arrive and park at the home around 3 p.m. in a black BMW. She was seen going inside the house to prepare for the showing.

According to an affidavit, the U-Haul passed the house and a person was seen walking into the home.

The U-Haul then pulled up to the house and backed up to the garage doors. Two men were seen walking out of the garage "and appeared to be closely, if not forcibly, holding onto a third person," according to the affidavit.

Two people were seen getting into the back of the U-Haul at about 3:20 p.m., and a third person drove it away. Police later found Baugh's BMW still parked at the empty Maple Grove house.

The U-Haul was abandoned in an alley where Baugh's body was found. The truck "smelled strongly of ammonia," according to the complaint.

The U-Haul truck was traced to the men who rented it, and they gave up Berry's name. Berry was arrested on Jan. 2.

A search warrant was executed on Berry's vehicle. Police found 13 bags of marijuana. And a black mask.

Berry was charged with kidnapping and second-degree murder in Baugh's death. Baugh's boyfriend, a rival drug dealer, was also shot on New Year's Day, but he survived the shooting.

Berry is also charged with second-degree murder for attempting to kill Baugh's boyfriend, the father of her two children.

The boyfriend told police a man entered his home using a key, and shot him several times in the torso. The children, ages 1 and 3, were inside the home at the time. They were not injured.

A GofundMe account created to help Baugh's children raised over $30,000 in donations.

A 21-year-old British woman who disguised herself as a teenage boy to prey on girls online was sentenced to 8 years in prison on Friday.

Prosecutors say Gemma Watts created an online persona as Jake Watson, a 16-year-old boy, to groom minor girls on Snapchat or Instagram, Fox News reported.

Met Police said Watts used her online persona to strike up conversations with dozens of girls in private messages. She persuaded girls to meet her in various parts of England.

"She then went on to form physical relationships in which she spun a web of lies and deceit, giving her the opportunity to commit sexual offenses," said Phillipa Kenwrite, a detective who worked on the case.

Police were alerted by a Hampshire doctor who said a young patient was sexually assaulted by her teenage boyfriend.

Police say Watts sexually assaulted more than 50 girls. The girls believed they were in a relationship with a teenage boy and they didn't realize the deception until they were contacted by police.

"For some of these girls, it's one of their first relationships," Kenwrite said. "Her arrest, and now lengthy prison sentence, has prevented her from targeting further victims."

A Florida man is behind bars for threatening President Donald Trump on Facebook Live. Chauncy Lump, 26, wore a towel on his head and a show curtain over his body in the Facebook Live video.

He smeared white cream on his face and threatened Trump’s life after Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was blown apart in a drone missile strike in Iraq on Jan. 3.

"He killed my leader, and I have to kill him. I am ready for Donald. I am ready," Lump said, according to the complaint.

"Do Not play with me, I have AK-47, I have it here, do not play with me, okay," he said before threatening to travel to West Palm Beach, Florida, where Trump was staying on Friday night.

When Secret Service agents showed up at his door the next day, Lump told them the threats were intended as "a joke." But federal agents weren't laughing as they took him into custody.

Lump was charged with knowingly and willfully making threats to kill and inflict bodily harm upon the president of the United States, a federal crime.

The Secret Service was tipped off by a Facebook employee who spotted the video shortly after it went live on a page called "BlackMan Vs America."

Lump legally owns a semi-automatic pistol. He told agents he had a bachelor's degree in homeland security from Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, but authorities ran a background check and learned he only completed one semester.

Lump told authorities the video was a mistake. "I shouldn't have did it in the first place," he said, according to the complaint.

A teenage boy wearing a wig and feminine attire has targeted 5 Metro Atlanta gyms to steal credit cards, identifications and even a truck.

Police say Tarquinnious Mack, 17, is wanted on multiple charges including robbery and auto theft. He has targeted gyms in Holly Springs, Cobb, Gwinnett, Forsyth and Cherokee counties.

Mack and a crew of similarly dressed individuals target gyms after the holidays - when most people are working on their New Year's resolutions.

According to Channel 2's Sophia Choi, Mack has committed robberies in Atlanta since November 2019. Police know he lives in Atlanta, but they are having trouble catching up to him and his crew.

"He's been very active the last few weeks," Covington police capt. Ken Malcolm told Choi.

Malcolm said Mack gains access to the gyms by telling staffers he lost his membership card. Once inside the locker rooms, he steals credit cards and IDs from lockers. At one location, he stole a credit card and went next door to Walmart where he used it to buy gift cards. He then left the scene in a stolen pickup truck.

After Choi tweeted her story about Mack on Wednesday, Donna Liggins tweeted that the "low life" stole her husband's truck from a gym in Forsyth County on Nov. 11. She said the vehicle was recovered on Dec. 11.

Police hope the public will call in with tips on Mack's location. In the meantime, police have advice for gyms and members to avoid becoming victims.

"The gymnasiums have to be vigilant in making sure that any individual that comes in is an actual member," Malcolm said.

Police also recommend gym members bring their own locks if they use a locker.

Fotis, a millionaire custom home builder, was arrested alongside his girlfriend Michelle Troconis, who worked for Fotis's home building company.

Before she vanished, Jennifer accused Fotis of domestic abuse and of having an extramarital affair with Truconis. Jennifer also accused Fotis of forcing their 5 children to share in his passion for water skiing.

Jennifer was last seen on May 24, about a week before two members of the Windsor Rod & Gun Club in East Granby stumbled upon a large hole in the ground, a large blue tarp and two bags of lime in a restricted area of the gun club grounds, according to the arrest warrant.

Mawhinney founded the gun club but he is no longer a member. State police searched the grounds with K9 officers in August, but found nothing suspicious.

The arrest warrant states Mawhinney's cell phone records place him near the site of the hole on March 29 and again on May 31. Mawhinney was also in contact with Fotis on the day Jennifer disappeared.

Mawhinney was previously arrested on Jan. 21, 2019 for allegedly sexually assaulting his own wife, according to NBC Connecticut.

New Canaan Police searched Fotis's Farmington mansion, where Troconis lived with Fotis, and another property owned by Fotis in a Hartford neighborhood.

According to police, surveillance video shows two people who look like Fotis and Troconis placing bags in trash cans. Police recovered the bags, one of which contained items that had Jennifer's blood on it.

Blood was also found on a faucet at Jennifer's New Canaan home. Fotis's lawyer, Norm Pattis, says his client has an alibi and police have the wrong guy.

Britain's most prolific rapist was sentenced to a minimum of 30 years in prison on Monday. Reynhard Sinaga, described as "Britain's most prolific rapist," was convicted of 136 rapes.

Sinaga, 36, is already serving 88 concurrent life sentences with a minimum of 20 years before he can be considered for parole.

He was sentenced on Monday in trials three and four, where he was convicted of an additional 23 counts of rape.

Police say Sinaga lured hundreds of men to his apartment in Manchester, England between 2015 and 2017.

Sinaga is accused of abusing at least 195 men by luring them to his apartment and drugging their drinks. He then attacked the men after they passed out.

Sinaga earned four degrees and was working on his PhD at Leeds University when he was arrested.

He was described as a bookish, Peter Pan-like figure who lived a short walk from the Factory, one of England's biggest LGBT clubs.

Sinaga was arrested after one victim escaped his apartment where he had been sexually assaulted. The victim accidentally took Sinaga's cell phone which was filled with graphic videos of Sinaga raping his victims.

The 18-year-old victim met Sinaga at the Factory one night in June 2017. Sinaga lured him back to his apartment "to get out of the cold."

The victim testified how he was given two shots of a red liquid and another two shots of what looked like a clear liqueur.

The victim recalls he "blacked out" and could remember nothing until he woke up the next morning.

The victim said he felt groggy and confused. The 6-foot rugby player easily overpowered the five-foot-seven Sinaga. He said Sinaga bit him several times during the struggle and pulled him back as he tried to leave.

After escaping Sinaga's apartment, the victim realized he had Sinaga's iPhone 4 in his jeans and he turned it over to police.

Sinaga initially refused police requests to unlock the phone, and began behaving strangely. When he did unlock the phone, police discovered the graphic videos.

Police executed a search of Sinaga's apartment and found another iPhone and more devices with videos on them.

Many of the victims did not report Sinaga to police because they didn't realize they had been raped until police found their videos on Sinaga's cell phone. One of his victims even "friended" him on Facebook.

Police said, if Sinaga hadn't recorded himself committing the vile acts, "nobody might ever have found out."

A woman who stabbed her grandfather, 70, then killed her sons, ages 2 years and 7 months, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.

Aleah Newell, 20, did not appear at her bail hearing in a Chicago courtroom on Saturday because she is still in a hospital recovering from injuries she suffered when she jumped from the 11th floor of an apartment building.

Judge Suzana Ortiz ordered her held without bail.

Police say the bloodshed occurred in an apartment on Chicago's South Side on Thursday, where she was staying with her grandfather, Cardell Walker.

Newell turned on the hot water in a bathtub and let it run. When Walker went in to use the bathroom, Newell crept up behind him, put him in a chokehold and hit him with a towel bar. She then went to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed Walker more than 10 times.

Walker is hospitalized in critical condition but he is expected to live, prosecutors said.

Newell then stabbed her 7-month-old son, Ameer Newell, 19 times in the head before dunking him face first in the scalding hot bath water.

She then cut a hole in a window screen and threw 2-year-old Johntavis Newell through the hole before crawling through the window herself and falling 11 stories to the ground.

Scaffolding around the third floor broke her fall as she landed on the sidewalk next to Johntavis.

Surveillance video captured the scene as mother and son hit the ground. Newell moved and sat up just as police and medics arrived on the scene. She suffered multiple fractures and other internal injuries.

Newell's mother, Zera Newell, told The Chicago Sun-Times that Aleah asked her to come and get the boys on New Year's Day. But when Zera Newell arrived at the apartment, Aleah Newell was gone.

Zera said Aleah took her children to a woman's and children's shelter operated by The Salvation Army. Newell asked workers there to take her sons. The Salvation Army told WBBM-TV that Newell stay overnight Monday and Tuesday at Shield of Hope, and left on Wednesday morning.

Zera said Aleah suffered from depression. "I thought she was over that," Zera said.

In May, 2017 Aleah lost her older brother to suicide. Last summer, another brother posted a Facebook message saying his sister was in the hospital being treated for a psychological issue.

He asked for prayers: "May god show her the right path and let her not go down the same path as our brother."

A body found in a shallow grave behind a dilapidated house in Hueytown, Alabama has been identified as a Trussville woman who went missing from a country music bar.

Paighton Houston, 29, was last seen on Dec. 20 at Tin Roof live music bar in the 2700 block of Seventh Avenue South in Birmingham's Lakeview District. She arrived at the bar earlier that night with a co-worker.

After leaving the bar willingly with two men, Houston texted her co-worker to say she felt "in trouble."

According to Houston's mother, Paighton texted "if I call answer, I don't know these people and I feel in trouble."

On Friday morning, Trussville police received a tip that led them to the house on Chapel Hill Drive in Hueytown.

After sifting through a mound of trash in a "muddy, nasty" backyard, police discovered the shallow grave and unearthed Houston's "intact" body. The body was positively identified as Houston.

Neighbors say an elderly man once lived in the house. His children moved him from the house to take care of him. The house is currently unoccupied.

Houston, whose smiling eyes touched the hearts of many, was honored by friends and volunteers who tied yellow ribbons on trees and telephone poles in Trussville on Saturday.

A GoFundMe account raised over $12,000 in donations to help pay Houston's burial expenses.

Rapper DaBaby is still locked up in a Miami jail after a violent encounter with a local club promoter who allegedly owed him $10,000. The altercation was caught on the hotel's surveillance cameras.

The unidentified promoter told police the rapper robbed him of $80 and his iPhone 7 before pouring apple juice on him outside the posh Novotol Hotel on Brickell Avenue in Miami.

The rapper appeared in a Miami courtroom on Friday, where he waived extradition to Texas. By waiving extradition, DaBaby agrees to be transported by sheriff's deputies to the state of Texas to face charges there.

Meanwhile, there is the matter of $250,000 in cash that DaBaby says he left in his Miami hotel room when he was arrested. He told Judge Mindy Glazer about the money.

A video that surfaced online Friday, allegedly shows the rapper robbing the promoter in front of the hotel.

It isn't clear if DaBaby, real name Jonathan Kirk, was a guest at the hotel when the alleged robbery went down.

DaBaby's arrest is the latest in a string of legal troubles for the rising rap star. Just two weeks ago, the "Suge" hitmaker, real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, was arrested on weapons and drug charges following a concert in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.

After being detained for concealing a weapon and being in possession of marijuana, the star hit back at authorities for targeting him whenever he plays in the area, writing on his Instagram Stories: "Dirty a*s police department try to take me to jail every time I got a show in the city."

DaBaby is already on probation for a weapons charge stemming from an altercation inside a Huntersville Walmart that left one man dead. Police say Jalyn Craig, 19, was shot once in the abdomen. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Saturday, the "Kirk" rapper bumped into Sean "Puffy" Combs outside Club Story on Miami Beach. Combs, 50, told DaBaby he is the hottest rapper in the game right now.

North Carolina deputies rescued a man who was beaten brutally by a father who caught him inside a room with his partially nude toddlers.

Police responded to a "chaotic scene" at a home in the 6800 block of Luce Lane in Spotsylvania County in the early morning hours of Dec. 29, 2019.

Upon arrival, deputies encountered Stanley who had multiple injuries to his face. Another man was holding a gun on Stanley.

The officers ordered the man to drop his weapon, which he eventually did.

The father told police he caught Stanley in his children's bedroom that morning. The children, ages 2 and 3, were "nude from the waist down," the father told cops.

The unnamed father pushed Stanley out of the bedroom and began to beat him savagely. Someone in the home called 911, but dispatchers couldn't understand the caller due to "the loud screaming in the background."

Sheriff's Capt. Liz Scott told reporters his deputies possibly saved Stanley's life.

Stanley was treated for his injuries at a hospital before being booked into the Rappahannock Regional Jail on two counts of indecent liberties and one count of domestic assault.

He is being held without bond. The father was not charged.

Police are hunting a group of seven teenagers who attacked an Orthodox Jewish man as he walked down a street in Brooklyn, NY.

The attack happened on Dec. 24, as the man walked alone down Lincoln Place near Albany Avenue.

Police released surveillance video footage of the males wearing black hoodies. As they walked past the man, one of the teens threw a chair at his head, knocking him to the sidewalk.

The attack happened just days after Grafton Thomas, who is Black, stabbed five Jewish people in the basement of a rabbi's home in Monsley, New York. The victims were celebrating the seventh night of Hannukkah.

The latest attack is the 14th incidence of anti-Semitic crimes perpetrated mainly by Black people in New York City's boroughs.

A homeless man who tried to abduct a sleeping woman off the 6 train in NYC was caught on the street and savagely beaten by a mob.

Sonny Alloway, 48, was arrested after a viral video showed him picking up the sleeping woman and dragging her off the 6 train at 2:30 a.m. on Monday.

The woman and a male friend, also homeless, were sleeping on the train to stay warm. Alloway, who was seated across from them, tapped the woman's leg and motioned toward the door.

When she ignored him, he grabbed her and carried her off the train at the next stop. Once on the platform, the woman struggled and broke free.

The woman spotted Alloway on the street the next day, and a mob delivered some street justice before the police were called.

The hero who shot and killed a gunman after he opened fire in a White Settlement, Texas church on Sunday, is a former FBI agent and head of church security.

Jack Wilson, a 70-year-old former FBI agent, opened fire on the gunman within sex seconds after the lunatic shot two innocent people including the church deacon and a security guard.

Anton "Tony" Wallace, 64, was the church's deacon and a registered nurse. One other person was critically wounded.

Tiffany Wallace was sitting in the pews at West Freeway Church of Christ when her father was shot.

"The guy just stood up from the pew, turned toward my dad and I guess he shot at the security guard," she said. Tiffany (pictured above) ran to her father and cradled his head in her arms as he took his last breath.

Tiffany said another parishioner noticed the gunman was acting strangely and wore a false beard.

The shooter was not identified by police, but conspiracy theorists online claim he is Black and wore a jacket with the words "Black Lives Matter" on the back.
