Bryshere Y. Gray was arrested Monday at his Arizona home after a domestic dispute with his wife escalated to violence.

Gray was charged with assault after he strangled his wife until she lost consciousness.

The 26-year-old actor was taken into custody hours after he barricaded himself inside his home on Sunday night.

The incident happened around 10:15 p.m. Sunday when Goodyear police responded to a 911 call from a woman at a Circle K gas station.

The woman told police her husband, the actor Bryshere Y. Gray, had assaulted her for hours and choked her until she passed out at their Goodyear home.

The woman reportedly had "numerous visible injuries" on her body, according to PEOPLE. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she received treatment for her injuries and was discharged.

Police responded to the Gray residence located at the 13000 block of S. 176th Lane, and attempted to speak with Gray, but he refused to come outside.

Police called out the Goodyear SWAT team and Crisis Negotiations to assist them. The standoff ended just after 7 a.m. Monday, when Gray was taken into custody without incident.

He was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on domestic assault and disorderly conduct charges. His mugshot was posted on the Goodyear police Facebook page.

Chad Daybell, the new husband of Lori Vallow, was arrested after human remains were unearthed at his Idaho property.

Vallow is the mother of 2 children, Joshua Vallow, 7, and his sister, Tylee Ryan, 17, who have been missing since September. She was arrested in Hawaii in February and extradited to Idaho where she is being held on $1 million bail.

Daybell was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of concealing or destroying evidence after police in Idaho executed a search warrant at his home in Fremont County.

"During the search of the property, investigators found what appears to be unidentified human remains," chief of police Gary Hagen said.

Vallow and Daybell fled to Hawaii last year after police and federal agents in Idaho questioned them repeatedly about the location of the children.

Vallow missed a court-ordered deadline to bring the children to the Rexburg Police Department in Idaho.

Tylee and Joshua were last seen in September 2019, according to police. Surveillance cameras at an Idaho storage facility showed Vallow and Daybell removing heavy items from a storage unit.

Police served a search warrant on the storage unit, but did not disclose if any evidence was found.

The case has frustrated law enforcement who believed the children were deceased.

At least 5 people -- including Vallow's ex-husband, Charles, and Daybell's wife, Tammy -- have died under suspicious circumstances in Vallow's inner circle.

Tammy told police that a man fired several shots at her in the weeks before she died mysteriously in her sleep.

Vallow and Daybell married 2 weeks after Tammy's death. Tammy's body was exhumed by police. Toxicology results are pending.

Vallow's first husband, Charles, was shot and killed by her brother, Alex, on July 11, 2019. Alex claimed he shot Charles in self-defense. Vallow was at home at the time of the shooting. She corroborated the story that her brother gave police.

Alex mysteriously died on December 11, 2019 of unknown causes.

Vallow and Daybell are cult members who were preparing for the second coming of Jesus in July 2020.

Tylee was preparing to return to college at the time of her disappearance. Joshua, who was adopted, was diagnosed with autism.

A New Mexico cop was arrested in full uniform while on duty, and charged with aggravated battery on his wife.

According to the arrest warrant, former Officer Jeffrey Wharton beat his wife so badly, she was hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage and multiple facial injuries.

Some of the violence was captured on the couple's Ring doorbell camera.

When Wharton arrived to work, he was met by Rio Rancho police detectives with a felony warrant for his arrest.

Female officers systematically stripped Wharton of his police issued weapon, gun belt and gear. The entire arrest and booking were captured on body cam video.

The video, dated Feb. 22, shows Wharton surrounded by officers before the change of shift. He was advised that they had a warrant for his arrest for domestic violence.

To further humiliate him -- and to drive home the point that he is a disgrace to his uniform -- another officer took a pair of scissors and cut Wharton's uniform off of him while his hands were cuffed behind him.

Wharton was transported to the Sandoval County Detention Center and booked on 2 felony counts of aggravated battery on a household member, kidnapping first-degree, aggravated battery against a household member (strangulation or suffocation), tampering with evidence and negligent use of a deadly weapon (unsafe handling).

Wharton resigned from the police force shortly after his arrest. He is awaiting trial.

According to the police report, Gillum, 40, was arrested in a Miami Beach hotel room with two other men in various stages of undress. Police responded to the location after one of the men overdosed on crystal meth.

The drugs were in three small baggies on the bed and the floor in full view of cops. One of the men told police that when he arrived at the hotel shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday, Gillum and the person having the medical issue were "inside the room under the influence of an unknown substance."

The police observed Gillum, who was partially undressed, in a bathroom vomiting. He was unable to communicate with officers due to his level of inebriation.

Gillum confirmed he was the man in the police report. The failed gubernatorial candidate released a statement on Friday, calling his arrest a "distraction".

"I was in Miami last night for a wedding celebration when first responders were called to assist one of my friends. While I had too much to drink, I want to be clear that I have never used methamphetamines. I apologize to the people of Florida for the distraction this has caused our movement."

Rapper Future Hendrix is reportedly disappointed that his eldest son's gang associates led him down the wrong path. 17-year-old Jakobi Wilburn was arrested and charged with gang activity and gun possession charges last month.

Future, whose real name is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, offered to cover his son's legal fees after he learned Jakobi faces 20 years in prison if convicted.

Jakobi was arrested in a gang bust in Georgia, where he's also reportedly facing charges of trespass and altering the ID of a firearm. He was allegedly found in possession of a gun with the serial number scratched off.

The teenager is listed as "indigent" on his arrest paperwork and he was assigned a public defender.

According to TMZ, Future along with Jakobi's mother, Jessica Smith, have retained some of the best lawyers to represent their son in court.

Smith, told the publication she and Future have been on top of the legal case, as they're actively involved in his life, adding, "Our son is a minor and to protect his well being in this trying situation, we ask that everyone please respect our privacy at this time."

Insiders say Future, who fathered 7 or 8 other kids with as many women, was estranged from Smith and Jakobi for years until Smith learned her baby daddy was a platinum-selling rapper.

Future reportedly reunited with his firstborn son when the child was 11.

A Washington man was arrested Tuesday in connection with the murder of a male-to-female (MtF) who went missing in June 2019.

Nikki Kuhnhausen, 17, was reported missing after planning to meet up with David Bogdanov, 25, on Snapchat. Kuhnhausen was last seen alive on June 6.

On Dec. 7, a hiker discovered human skeletal remains in a remote area of Larch Mountain in Clark County, according to Crimeonline.com.

The remains were later identified as Kuhnhausen, according to KPTV. Bogdonov told investigators in early October that he and Kuhnhausen had gotten into a dispute, and he kicked the teenager out of his car. He said that was the last he'd seen of Kuhnhausen.

But police now believe Bogdonov strangled Kuhnhausen after he found out he was born a male.

"We suspect that there was probably some interaction where, and by his own admission, that he determined that ... she was transgender," said Vancouver police Lieutenant Tom Ryan.

Ryan added that cross-dressing was offensive to Bogdonov's culture.

Cell phone records revealed, on June 6, Bogdonov's phone was in the same remote area where Kuhnhausen's remains were later found.

A former bank employee is accused of stealing more than $88,000 from a North Carolina bank, then posting photos of the stolen loot on social media.

Arlando Henderson, 29, was arrested by the FBI in San Diego, California on Dec. 4. A criminal indictment was unsealed in federal court in Charlotte, NC following his arrest.

According to the indictment, Henderson was employed by the financial institution in Charlotte, and had access to the bank vault.

On 18 separate occasions, Henderson stole cash from customer deposit boxes in the bank's vault.

Henderson then posted photos of himself flashing the cash on social media. Henderson reportedly used the cash for personal expenses and to make a $20,000 down payment on a new Mercedes-Benz.

The indictment also alleges Henderson committed fraud by falsifying documents to obtain a car loan at another bank for the balance owed on the Mercedes.

Bank officials became suspicious after Henderson - by then an ex-employee - posted photos of himself flashing stacks of cash on his Facebook and Instagram accounts.

The aspiring rapper also posted photos of himself posing next to a white 2019 Mercedes-Benz.

Henderson captioned one photo: "I make it look easy but this... really a PROCESS."

"Throughout July and August 2019, Henderson used a social media account to post several pictures of him holding large stacks of cash," the indictment reads.

The feds allege Henderson "destroyed certain documents" and "made, or caused others to make, false entries in the bank's books and records to cover up the thefts."

Henderson had an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gallo, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California earlier this month.

He is charged with two counts of financial institution fraud, 19 counts of theft, embezzlement and misapplication, and 12 counts of making false entries.

The felony charges carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine for each count. He is also charged with transactional money laundering, which carries additional penalties of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Police in New York have arrested a 13-year-old boy in connection with the brutal stabbing of 18-year-old Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors.

Majors was fatally stabbed as she made her way through Morning side Park in Manhattan's Upper West Side near her campus around 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say Majors was approached by three youths intent on robbing her. When she resisted, one of the boys pulled out a knife and stabbed her multiple times as she screamed for help.

The group fled and Majors struggled up a flight of steps and onto the street where she collapsed.

A security guard found her and called 911. Majors was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, ABC News reports.

On Thursday, police noticed a 13-year-old boy in the lobby of a building near the park. His clothes matched the description of one of the attackers.

Police found a knife on the teen when he was taken into custody on suspicion of criminal trespass. Investigators say he confirmed his involvement in the robbery attempt and fatal stabbing.

Two other teens, who were persons of interest, were released from custody on Wednesday.

Majors was a popular first-year student on the campus. She studied journalism and played in 2 rock bands. She recently celebrated her band's first live performance and she was booked to perform in her hometown over the holiday break.

Majors' family is devastated by the senseless tragedy. She was the daughter of a novelist and writing professor.

"We lost a very special, very talented, and very well-loved young woman," her family said in a statement obtained by The New York Times.

"Tess shone bright in this world, and our hearts will never be the same."

Majors was a member of the LGBT community. Her murder is not believed to be a hate crime.

The Miami Dolphins waived running back Mark Walton following his arrest early Tuesday for hitting a pregnant woman.

According to a police report obtained by ESPN, Walton is accused of pushing the woman into a wall and punching her in her face and head.

The woman is reportedly five weeks pregnant with Walton's baby, according to ESPN.

Walton, a 22-year-old Miami native, led the Dolphins with 201 rushing yards on a 3.8 yards-per-carry average and 15 receptions for 89 yards this season. But he couldn't overcome his off-field troubles.

Walton was 2 games into a four-game league suspension for violating the NFL conduct and substance abuse policies related to two arrests during the off season earlier this year.

Walton accepted a plea deal for his most serious felony offense for carrying a concealed weapon during his March arrest after a police chase.

The plea deal reduced his charge to a second-degree misdemeanor open-carry. He was released by the Cincinnati Bengals after those arrests, but the Dolphins gave him another chance by signing him in May, according to ESPN.

The Dolphins released a statement after Walton's dismissal on Tuesday, Nov. 19.

"We hold our players to a high standard and take these matters very seriously. We will have no further comment at this time," general manager Chris Grier said in a statement.

Quezada had a gun visible in his back pocket when sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene. His wife was arrested for being an accessory to murder, according to Newson6.com.

The victims were going to see a movie when they were killed. Family members tell News On 6 that Albert never met Manuel Quezada. "Albert had never even met the man. [Manuel Quezada] would always tell her that he didn't want her being around black people," said Aleta Thomas, aunt of Albert Thomas. "He never met the dad until last night, and this man killed him in cold blood."

According to public records obtained by the DailyMail.com, the Quezadas have a 27-year-old daughter and two sons, ages 28 and 32. Thomas and his girlfriend had dated for two years, according to his family.

Lake County Sheriff's Office

A 29-year-old Waukegan man was arrested and charged with criminal transmission of the HIV virus to a minor he met on a dating app.

Marcus E. Davis is accused of engaging in repeated instances of unprotected sex with a 16-year-old boy and infecting him with HIV.

Davis is charged with three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a minor, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

The boy's parents contacted the Sheriff's Office in June after they discovered their son had hooked up with Davis since he was 15.

During their investigation detectives determined that Davis drove to the boy's home and engaged in sex acts there, as well as engaging in anal intercourse at Davis' north suburb home.

Davis, who knew he was HIV-positive, did not inform the teenager of his HIV status until after the two had engaged in unprotected sex on several occasions.

The victim contracted HIV from Davis, officials said, according to CBS2 Chicago.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office said the minor met Davis through an online dating app. Officials are warning parents to be aware of the apps on their children's phones and who they are in contact with.

Davis is being held on $100,000 bail in the Lake County Jail. His next court date is scheduled for Oct. 31.

Over one million people are currently infected with HIV in the U.S. according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta.

HIV is still considered a life sentence due to the lifelong treatment necessary to keep the viral load count low enough to be undetected. The virus can lay dormant inside internal organs for years.
