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.

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 FedEx driver cursed while speaking to a fellow employee on his cell phone as he struggled with the oversized package.

The 144-pound sofa had been delivered by FedEx twice, but the furniture was damaged both times.

"Now we're wondering if it was broken because of the way they treat the merchandise," Wendorf told WISN.

According to FedEx's guidelines on its website, the package is within its acceptable weight limits of 150 pounds.

Wendorf said she sent the video to FedEx but she received no response. So she took her complaint to the news media.

Working moms everywhere can relate to a NBC news correspondent who vent viral on social media after her son interrupted her live report on Syria.

NBC News correspondent Courtney Kube was live on the air reporting on the conflict in Syria on Wednesday when her son wandered over and demanded her attention.

Kube, who covers national security and the Pentagon, was discussing Turkey's incursion into Syria from the NBC News studios in Washington, D.C. when her 4-year-old son interrupted her.

"Excuse me... my Kids are here. Live television," Kube laughed while simultaneously pushing her son away.

Kube later explained that her kids were dropped off in the studio from preschool and, "Breaking news in Syria didn't line up with preschool drop-off, so he and his twin brother were with me."

Hopefully Kube's boss has a good sense of humor.

Phillips is charged with first-degree robbery and receiving a stolen firearm stemming from the robbery at the Country Inn and Suites hotel in Paducah, Kentucky on Monday night, according to WPSD Local 6 News.

The gun recovered at the hotel was reported stolen during a burglary at a home on Adams Street last week.

Police say a McCracken County Sheriff's deputy noticed the driver of a gray Dodge Stratus wasn't wearing his seat belt. He pulled the car over on Bridge Street on Tuesday afternoon. The deputy said the driver, Phillips, was acting nervous.

The deputy searched the car and found an Apple computer that was reported stolen from the same Adams Street home where a gun was taken during a burglary.

The deputy also found a white Stryper t-shirt of the same brand and style as the one the hotel robber wore to conceal his face. A white Stryper t-shirt and knit cap were found discarded near the hotel on Monday night.

A Paducah police detective made the connection between the computer, the gun and the white t-shirts, and Phillips was charged with the 2 robberies. He is currently being held without bond in the McCracken County Jail.

Did you know that every "private" message you send on any social media platform can be read internally by workers? Even though we have zero expectations of privacy online, some social media users sincerely believe their private messages are private.

According to a hidden camera report by Projectveritas.com, Twitter pays at least 400 workers to scour your DMs for content and other data (such as your IP, location, email addresses, etc) that they can use to tailor ad serving to you.

"The whole culture at Twitter is about abusing and laughing at users," says Project Veritas' founder James O'Keefe.
