It took three drug overdoses and 2 deaths for police to finally arrest wealthy Democratic donor Ed Buck.

The prominent businessman and homosexual activist was arrested late Tuesday and charged with three counts of felony battery, distributing methamphetamines and maintaining a drug den — after a 37-year-old man suffered a drug overdose last week, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Authorities say the unidentified man was injected with methamphetamines and overdosed. The man survived and will likely testify against Buck if there is a trial.

Buck is being held on $4 million bail.

A witness who filmed the prominent donor's arrest said 8 cops entered his West Hollywood apartment building with a battering ram.

Armed with a search warrant, cops found hundreds of photographs of Black men in various compromising positions inside Buck's apartment, which was littered with clothing, trash and drug paraphernalia.

Buck reportedly has a sexual fetish for injecting Black men with drugs and watching them die.

Buck, 65, is not charged in the deaths of 2 Black males whose bodies were found in his apartment in previous years.

Gemmel Moore, 26, was the first to die. Moore, a homosexual escort, was lured to Buck's apartment and injected with drugs on July 27, 2017.

Despite the public uproar and protests by Moore's family, no arrest was made.

The 2nd victim, Timothy Dean, a 55-year-old male escort, was found naked and unresponsive in Buck's apartment after suffering a drug overdose on January 7, 2019.

Dean's death prompted an investigation by homicide detectives. But critics say the case was quietly dropped due to Buck's protected LGBT status and his close ties to prominent Democrats, such as Hillary Clinton.

The list of Democrats who received campaign contributions from Buck include California's Gov. Gavin Newsom, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, West Hollywood Mayor John Heilman, and Rep. Ted Lieu, who received more than $18,000 from Buck.

Local activists hope the third case of a drug overdose in Buck's apartment will cause detectives to take a fresh look into the 2 earlier deaths.

When news of Buck's arrest broke late Tuesday, local politicians scrambled to do damage control.

"I remain deeply concerned for the safety of people whose life circumstances may make them more vulnerable to criminal predators," Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement. "With this new evidence, I authorized the filing of criminal charges against Ed Buck."

Buck's first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.

Clearwater PD

A male certified nursing assistant was arrested in Florida on multiple charges of sexually assaulting elderly women in his care at a Clearwater, Florida nursing facility.

Felo Kane told Clearwater police he has a "fetish for older female patients under his care."

Authorities say Kane, 32, is charged with four counts of sexual battery of the physically helpless.

In May 2016, Kane inappropriately fondled and kissed a disabled stroke patient while changing her adult diaper. The patient told him multiple times to stop, but authorities say Kane forced her to touch his genitals.

In a second incident, Kane fondled another female patient while changing her adult diaper.

When she protested, he reportedly told the woman, "don't worry, I'm just cleaning you."

According to WFTS, Kane touched and fondled older patients at two separate nursing facilities from 2016 to 2019.

WFLA-TV identified one of the facilities as Clearwater Center.

Some of the family members of patients at the Clearwater facility are angry over the possibility that Kane fondled their loved ones.

In some states male nursing staff are prohibited from being alone in a room with vulnerable female patients, for obvious reasons.

A Detroit woman faces attempted murder charges after shooting her life partner 11 times, including 4 times in the vagina.

Police have not formally charged Tiffany Wallace, but she is being held without bond after shooting Airrion Wallace 11 times on Monday morning.

Wallace said Tiffany Wallace shot her after she asked for a divorce after 12 years of marriage.

In an interview with Fox 2 News from her hospital bed, Wallace said she asked for a divorce after she caught Tiffany with another woman.

"Because I can handle a lot of things but I cannot handle infidelity," she told Fox 2.

"She shot me four times in my vagina, four times in my leg, three times in my stomach," Wallace said.

"She wanted me to die because she has always felt if she can't have me, no one can have me."

She said she stayed conscious long enough to stumble outside and ask neighbors for help.

"I had to gather as much strength as I could, to get down my stairs and get outside, because the neighbors had heard it," she said. "As soon as I opened the door there was already people out there. I said, 'Please can you call the police.'"

Police arrested Tiffany Wallace outside her home. She told police she shot Wallace in self-defense, according to Fox 2.

The family uploaded graphic photos to a Gofundme account to raise money for Wallace's hospital bills.

A Florida high school cheerleader was arrested after she allegedly hired two hitmen to kill her parents, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

Alyssa Michelle Hatcher, 17, was arrested on September 9 and booked into the Lake County Jail where she was "processed and turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice."

Hatcher's mother and stepfather, Tammy Hatcher-Scheller and Michael Scheller, were unharmed. Michael Scheller is a police lieutenant with the Clermont Police Department.

A resource officer at Hatcher's high school learned of the plot to kill Hatcher's parents from another student.

The teenager told the officer that Hatcher paid a friend "a lot of money" to kill her parents.

Police spoke to Hatcher's boyfriend who confirmed the murder-for-hire plot. Hatcher reportedly paid two men over $1,400 that she stole using her parents' debit card.

She used $100 of the stolen money to buy cocaine, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Lake County Sheriff's Office Detective David Causey.

Causey said Hatcher used her parents' debit card to make two separate withdrawals from a bank ATM.

The day her parents were to be murdered, Hatcher was spotted at a drug trap house where she paid the two men to carry out the murder.

According to Causey, Hatcher admitted to paying one person $503 and a second person $926.40 after asking both men to kill her parents.

"The parents are good people, outstanding citizens. This was just somebody, who for whatever reason, just didn’t want her parents around," Lake County Sheriff's Sergeant Fred Jones told WFTV.

It's not clear if more arrests are expected.

A cashier with a photographic memory used his special talent to memorize 1,300 credit cards to use for nefarious purposes, police say.

Yuske Taniguchi was arrested for using his photographic memory to memorize the names, credit card numbers and expiration dates of credit cards belonging to 1,300 customers at his part time job at Tokyo mall.

Japan Today reports that Taniguchi, 34, then used the credit card information to finance his basic living expenses and purchase luxury items online.

Police were tipped off after Taniguchi purchased a pair of shoulder bags totaling over $2,500, and had the bags delivered to his apartment.

A search of his apartment turned up a notebook containing names and numbers that police are using to investigate the credit card fraud.

According to Japan Today, readers were amazed by Taniguchi's talent, but they wondered why he didn't put his skill to better use.

"Isn't there any job where he can use that talent?" one person asked.

A Pennsylvania couple is out on bond after they spent $100,000 of $120,000 deposited into their bank account accidentally.

Robert and Tiffany Williams, of Montoursville, Pa., found the $120,000 in their bank account and forgot to call the bank.

$120,000 intended for a business was accidentally transferred into their BB&T bank account because of a teller error, state trooper Aaron Brown told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette.

Brown said the couple went on a spending spree - knowing the money in the bank account wasn't theirs to spend.

The Williamses bought a camper, a Chevy and a racecar before giving $15,000 to their broke friends.

They spent a total of $100,000 in about 2½ weeks, WNEP reports.

The bank eventually realized the error and notified Tiffany Williams, 35, that she had X amount of days to return the cash, Brown told the Sun-Gazette.

Brown said the withdrawal resulted in a $107,416 overdraft because the couple had only $1,121 in their bank account.

Williams agreed to pay back the money if the bank put her on a payment plan.

The bank agreed to the payment plan, but Williams stopped making the payments and refused to return the bank's calls or emails.

The bank pressed charges and the couple was arrested and charged with three felony counts of theft by receiving.

The Sun-Gazette reported that the couple, in separate interrogations, told police that they "admitted to knowing the mislaid money did not belong to them, but they spent it anyway."

They appeared in court last week and posted bail of $25,000 each, according to The Washington Post.

Riverside County Sheriff's Dept.

Two female suspects who allegedly killed an elderly woman and stole her casino winnings may be eligible for the death penalty.

35-year-old Kimesha Monae Williams, pictured right, and her accomplice Candace Tai Townsel, 39, are charged with killing Afaf Anis Assad, 84.

The two women allegedly followed Assad into a bathroom at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif., where they struck her in the head with a blunt object and stole her purse containing $800–$1,200, according to The Press-Enterprise.

Williams and Townsel were arrested on Sept. 3, a day before Assad died from closed head injuries.

A relative of Los Angeles Clippers star forward Kawhi Leonard said Williams is related to the NBA star.

Speaking through a window at the Williams family home in Moreno Valley, Williams' aunt, Denise Woodard, told the Riverside Press-Enterprise on Saturday that Williams and Leonard are siblings.

According to Fox LA, John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside County District Attorney's Office, said the suspects were charged with murder with a special circumstance that makes them eligible for the death penalty.

A Riverside County sheriff's investigator filed a written request asking the judge to keep Williams locked up without bail due to her history of violence and family finances.

"Williams has family that are well off and could post her bail of $1,000,000," the investigator wrote. "I am requesting NO BAIL to assure Williams' appearance in court and to keep innocent victims safe."

After leading the Toronto Raptors to the team's first ever NBA championship Leonard signed a three-year, $103 million contract with the Los Angeles Clippers in July.

"Williams has a violent history and targeted a feeble elderly female and robbed her," the investigator wrote.

Jail records list Williams' height and weight as 6-foot-2 and 320 pounds, and Townsel as being 5-foot-4 and 195 pounds.

According to Facebook friends, one of the women allegedly injects herself with the male sex hormone Testosterone.

The number of male-identified lesbians injecting testosterone has increased dramatically in recent years.

Testosterone causes aggression in males, making males the most violence-prone of the human species.

Testosterone levels vary in men and women. The levels are much lower in women whose dominant sex hormone is Estrogen.

But male-identified lesbians are injecting themselves with high doses of the dangerous drug (at higher levels than males), causing an increase in homicidal violence caused by women.

As a result of injecting testosterone, some women are becoming as violent as their male counterparts.

Testosterone levels are related to criminality and violence, says James Dabbs, Ph.D., one of the world's leading experts on testosterone.

"While there is no direct tie between testosterone and human criminality, there is an indirect tie. Testosterone leads toward violence, and violence is often criminal."

The sister of NBA superstar Kawhi Leonard is charged with murdering an elderly woman in a California casino bathroom last Saturday.

Kimesha Monae Williams, 35, and her accomplice Candace Tai Townsel, 39, are charged with killing Afaf Anis Assad, 84.

The two women allegedly followed Assad into a bathroom at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif., where they struck her in the head with a blunt object and stole her purse containing $800–$1,200, according to The Press-Enterprise.

Speaking through a window at the Williams family home in Moreno Valley, Williams' aunt Denise Woodard confirmed Williams is Leonard’s sister.

Woodard told the paper, "He didn't have anything to do with this."

Williams is being held without bail at Indio Correction Facility, according to The Press-Enterprise.

Woodard declined to speak for Leonard and said she didn't know whether Leonard had reached out to the family or to his sister.

A Riverside County sheriff's investigator filed a written request asking the judge to keep Williams locked up without bail due to her history of violence and family finances.

"Williams has family that are well off and could post her bail of $1,000,000," the investigator wrote. "I am requesting NO BAIL to assure Williams' appearance in court and to keep innocent victims safe."

Jail records list Williams' height and weight as 6-foot-2 and 320 pounds, and Townsel as being 5-foot-4 and 195 pounds.

Williams is listed in court records as a biological female.

She has a long criminal history that includes petty theft, grand theft, misappropriating lost property, grand theft auto and attempted robbery, court records show.

A$AP Rocky's Swedish lawyer was the victim of a suspected hit in Stockholm, Sweden on Friday morning.

Prominent attorney Henrik Olsson Lilja was shot twice - in the head and chest - as he left his apartment building in downtown Stockholm around 9 a.m. this morning.

Lilja initially represented Rocky when he was arrested for assaulting an Afghan migrant in Sweden.

Neighbors saw a man jump out of a SUV and wrestle with Lilja in the hallway of his building before he shot the lawyer and sped off in the waiting SUV.

Police have a suspect in custody - a woman who was previously banned from contacting Lilja. The gunman is still at large.

Lilja's condition is unknown. He was conscious and speaking with first responders before being rushed to a hospital.

A witness told the media the prominent attorney was bleeding from a gunshot wound to his face. He told police "it hurts".

"It was very bloody," said the witness.

Police don't believe the shooting is connected with Rocky's assault case.

Rocky was found guilty of assault last month after serving two months in a Swedish detention center. He was given a 2 year suspended sentence and allowed to return to the U.S.

U.S. President Donald Trump is still waiting for Rocky to thank him for helping to secure his release from jail.

A 2-year-old girl was found dead in a park near Pittsburgh, 3 days after she was kidnapped by a rideshare driver who claimed the girl’s father sold the child to another woman for $10,000.

Nalani Johnson's body was found on Tuesday at Pine Ridge Park in Indiana County near Pittsburgh, police say.

On Monday, police filed kidnapping charges against Sharena Nancy, 25, according to KDKA. She will also be charged with murder.

Police say Nancy is in a relationship with the 2-year-old's father, Paul Johnson.

Nancy told police the baby's father instructed her to drop the child off with another woman after he sold her for $10,000. But Johnson denies the allegation.

Just after 5 p.m. on Saturday, Johnson called police. He was "crying and visibly upset" when police arrived.

He told police that he and his daughter were in Nancy's vehicle, a Toyota Yaris with Uber and Lyft stickers on the windshield. A "friend" was also in the car.

He said Nancy drove approximately 20 miles south along route 22 to Blairsville, Indiana County. At the intersection of Bryant and Clay Drives in Penn Hills, police say Johnson told them the vehicle stopped so he could get out, but when he went to reach for his daughter, Nancy drove off with Nalani still strapped in her child safety seat.

He said he called Nancy's cell phone repeatedly but she never answered.

Nancy was stopped by a Penn Hills police officer around 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The toddler and her car seat were not in the car. Nancy was arrested and charged with kidnapping.

She told police that the girl’s father sold Nalani to another woman for $10,000 and Nancy was to drive the girl "20 minutes from a gas station in Monroeville along Route 22."

She said she turned the child and the car seat over to the unidentified woman.

The FBI's Child Abduction Response Deployment team joined local police in the search for Nalani.

Johnson's mother Taji Walsh denied Nancy's claim that her son was involved in his daughter's disappearance. "We don’t know her personally," Walsh said, adding that her son would not be walking around free if he was somehow involved.

An autopsy will be performed on Nalani to determine the cause and manner of death.

A 14-year-old boy has confessed to killing all 5 members of his family. The shootings occurred about 10:30 p.m. Monday in the tiny town of Elkmont, Alabama.

Police responding to the small one-story home found 3 people deceased and two others suffering from gunshot wounds. An adult and 2 minors were dead at the scene. Another adult and a minor were airlifted to a hospital, where they later died.

The boy initially told a dispatcher he heard gunshots upstairs. He later confessed to shooting his father, stepmother, and three siblings.

The teenager called 911, saying he was in the basement and heard gunshots upstairs, according to WHNT-TV. The teen's grandmother said that she recently lived in the family's basement," but she moved out of the home. She said the deceased were her only family in the area.

Family members of the stepmother were distraught at the scene, according to the television station.

The sheriff said the boy was assisting in the search of the 9mm handgun that he threw away after the shooting.

The boy is being held in a juvenile detention center in Elkmont, a town with a population of 500 residents, about a 45 minute drive northwest of Huntsville, Alabama.

The sheriff said it is unclear if the boy will be charged as an adult.

A group of armed men and women pointed a gun at Popeyes workers and demanded an order of spicy fried chicken sandwiches. The perpetrators, which consisted of three men and two women, were reportedly hungry and angry when workers told them the restaurant was out of sandwiches.

KTRK in Houston reports that a baby was with the group.

Popeyes reportedly ordered all franchise restaurants to stop serving the coveted sandwiches after a series of violent incidents at inner city locations put customers and workers in danger.

Popeyes Chicken

The Popeyes chicken sandwich craze took off after the restaurant's rival, Chic-fil-A, challenged them to a chicken sandwich duel on social media.

Black Twitter took sides in the Popeyes/Chic-fil-A memes war and customers stampeded into Popeyes restaurants to sample the sandwiches for themselves.

But police say Monday night's holdup at a southeast Houston Popeyes drive up window was no laughing matter.

After workers informed the "mob" that there were no sandwiches, the group tried to enter the restaurant, but workers locked the doors. One of the men pulled a gun and threatened to open fire.

Police say the aforementioned baby was left alone in the car to fend for itself.

Police are looking for the group who fled the restaurant empty handed.

Last week, Popeyes released a statement saying the high demand for their product resulted in the sandwiches being sold out everywhere.

In the statement, Popeyes said, "We, along with our suppliers, are working tirelessly to bring the new sandwich back to guests as soon as possible."

But Black Twitter is not buying the story. They say chickens and bread are plentiful in grocery stores all over the country. And there have been no reported shortages of supplies at Chic-fil-A or other fast food restaurants.
