Texas Jury Acquits Man Who Killed Escort

A Texas jury acquitted a john who shot and killed his escort because she refused to have sex with him.

NJ Socialite Jumped by 10 Prostitutes A South Jersey socialite on vacation in South Beach was jumped by 10 prostitutes who thought she was selling her goodies on their turf.

The attack on Anna Burgese took place Jan. 19 at the plush, five-star W Hotel -- and now Burgese is suing the hotel for millions.

According to a report in the Miami Herald, Burgese was minding her own business when as many as 10 prostitutes ganged up on her in the W Hotel lobby.

The petite mom, who is 5-foot-1 and 105 lbs., was tackled to the ground and suffered a scrape on her knee and a bloody lip, according to the police report obtained by The Miami Herald.

Instead of helping her to catch the hookers, Burgese claims that the “prostitute-friendly" hotel hailed cabs for the women to aid in their escape.

Shoplifter runs over her son

A Macon woman is in police custody after she ran over her 4-year-old son in the parking lot while fleeing the Houston County Galleria in Centerville.

The tragic incident happened on Thursday night, when a Belk loss prevention officer observed Arkebia Albury, 25, shoplifting inside the store.

The security officer followed Albury and her children, ages 2 and 4, into the parking lot, according to a report on Macon.com.

When he ordered her to stop, Albury jumped into her 2001 Toyota Camry and hit the gas, but only her 2-year-old had made it into the passenger side of the car.

As the officer pleaded with Albury to leave the 4-year-old until an ambulance arrived, Albury got out out of the car and picked up the injured child.

“She picks the little boy up and throws him in the car and drives off,” Centerville Police Chief Sidney Andrews said.

Police caught up with Albury's Toyota on Wilson Drive, near the mall. Emergency rescue personnel arrived and transported the child to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition with severe head and internal injuries.

“The child is in bad shape,” Andrews said. “It wasn’t looking too good.”

In addition to the 2 toddlers, Albury's sister and niece were also in the car. The women were not charged since they stayed in the car when the shoplifting occurred.

Andrews said he wasn't sure what was taken in the theft.

“I believe it was a couple of T-shirts. I do know it was clothing. It was a misdemeanor amount,” he said. “This certainly was not worth it.”

Albury is charged with with two counts of cruelty to children, reckless conduct and theft by shoplifting.

  • Boy Scouts Vote to Admit Openly Gay Boys Yesterday, the Boy Scouts of America voted to admit openly gay boys for the first time. But Pascal Tessier, 16, has mixed feelings about the historic decision. At 16, he is one step away from earning his Eagle Scout -- the highest honor for a Boy Scout. He is also openly gay.

    "I was thinking that today could be my last day as a Boy Scout," Tessier said. "Obviously, for gay Scouts like me, this vote is life-changing."

    Tessier is concerned that he will be kicked out of the organization when he turns 18.

    That's because, despite ongoing pressure from gay rights advocates and corporate sponsors, the Boy Scouts of America remains resistant to allowing openly gay scout leaders.

    "That one couple hours (between 17 and 18) will make me not a good person," Tessier said.

    President Obama at Morehouse College

    President Barack Obama was in town on Sunday to deliver the commencement address at Morehouse, the historically black, all-male college in Atlanta.

    Mr. Obama was his usual, arrogant, cocky self as he delivered the Commencement Address. Obama received a polite smattering of applause when he told the graduates that they can no longer use the color of their skin as an excuse for making bad decisions.

    Without elaborating, Mr. Obama said men in the black community continue to make bad choices. Obama, who is biracial, said he, too wrote off his failings as just another example of the world trying to keep a black man down. "Excuses are tools of the incompetent used to bridge bridges to nowhere and monuments of nothingness," he said to another smattering of polite applause.

    John Welden and Remee Lee

    Tampa authorities arrested a doctor's son and charged him with deceiving his pregnant girlfriend into believing the abortion pill she was taking was an antibiotic.

    According to a federal arrest affidavit, John Andrew Welden tricked his girlfriend into taking an abortion pill, which resulted in the death of their unborn child.

    On Tuesday, Welden, 28, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of the six-week-old fetus, and product tampering. He was denied bail on Wednesday.

    Though the 6-week-old fetus is not considered medically viable, the age of the fetus is moot under federal law.

    "If someone kills an unborn child while committing a federal crime, it's considered murder," Tampa lawyer Todd Foster told ABC News.

    Ariel Castro, the Ohio man who imprisoned 3 women in his Cleveland home for over a decade, will plead not guilty to multiple charges of kidnapping and rape, say his attorneys.

    "The initial portrayal of him is one of a quote 'monster,' and that is not the impression that I got," said one of his two attorneys, Craig Weintraub, during an interview that aired on Wednesday's Today show.

    "He is a human being, but what is offensive is that the women and the media want to demonize this man before they know the whole story, and I think it's unfair and not equitable," added Castro's co-counsel, attorney Jaye Schlachet.

    Castro's attorneys portray him as a misunderstood, loving father who only wants the best for the 6-year-old girl he fathered with one of his captives, Amanda Berry, now 27.

    Gina DeJesus Amanda Berry Michelle knight

    The Cleveland 911 dispatcher who took kidnap victim Amanda Berry's call on Monday evening may lose his/her job for the callous way the call was handled.

    The unidentified dispatcher was cold and lacked empathy when Berry dialed 911 to report she had been kidnapped and held in a basement for 10 years by former Cleveland school bus driver Ariel Castro, 52.

    Audio of the 911 call angered many Cleveland residents who demanded to know why the unsympathetic "call taker" didn't keep Berry on the phone until police arrived.

    Ariel Castro Amanda Berry Gina DeJesus

    Three Ohio women who were snatched off the same Cleveland block about 10 years ago were found alive in the home of a Cleveland school bus driver on Monday.

    The driver, Ariel Castro, 52, was taken into custody Monday along with his 2 brothers. Castro kept the women hidden in a basement for 10 years, according to police. At least one of the women gave birth to a daughter, now 6, while in captivity.

    Charles Ramsey, a neighbor who rescued Amanda Berry, 27, Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, said he was at McDonald's when he heard a woman screaming hysterically inside a nearby house.

    "This girl is kicking the door and screaming," he told local NBC affiliate WKYC-TV.

    Ramsey said the woman screamed, "Help me get out! I'm Amanda Berry... I've been missing for 10 years!" Ramsey said he believed the woman was involved in a domestic violence dispute.

    Berry was snatched at age 16 in 2003, as she left her job at McDonald's. DeJesus was 14 when she was taken while walking home from school in 2004. Knight was kidnapped in 2002.

    Ramsey and another man broke down the door so Berry could escape. "We had to kick open the bottom," Ramsey told WEWS-TV. "Lucky on that door it was aluminum. It was cheap. She climbed out with her daughter."

    “I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms," Ramsey told the station. "Either she homeless or she's got problems. That's the only reason she'd run to a black man!"

    Boston Bomber Suspect was Unarmed

    According to the Huffington Post, two U.S. officials confirmed to the Associated Press that 19-year-old Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was unarmed when he was found hiding in a boat on Friday, April 19. No gun was found in the boat, according to the AP.

    This contradicts the blatant lies told by Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, who said his officers and SWAT team members "exchanged gunfire" with the suspect. Davis' exact words were:

    “Over the course of the next hour or so we exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was inside the boat, and ultimately the hostage rescue team of the F.B.I. made an entry into the boat and removed the suspect, who was still alive."

    He was wrong on both counts; there was no gunfire exchanged and the FBI did not enter the boat or remove the suspect.

    A photo taken by a CBS cameraman during the standoff clearly shows Tsarnaev exiting the boat under his own power.

    Amanda Davis Arrest Despite a petition calling for her termination, Fox 5 plans to put news anchor Amanda Davis back on the air at 10 p.m. Thursday to give a "special statement" about her most recent DUI arrest.

    According to Rodney Ho of the AJC, Davis, 56, has not been on the air since November 11 when she was involved in a wrong-way crash.

    Davis has declined all interview requests since November, according to Ho. There is speculation that she may be announcing her retirement from Fox 5.

    The former beat reporter has been with WAGA-TV since 1986 when it was a CBS affiliate.

    Davis was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Piedmont Avenue around 12:20 a.m. November 11, when she crashed head on into a southbound vehicle.

    Boston military imposed lockdown

    Martial law is defined as temporary military control over designated regions on an emergency basis.

    On Friday, April 19 -- four days after 2 bombs ripped through the finish line at the Boston Marathon, Martial law was imposed on the residents of Boston by military authorities searching for a skinny 19-year-old kid.

    Boston residents were forced to remain inside their homes -- or ordered to evacuate their homes at gunpoint. The cost to shut down the entire city of Boston, including buses, trains, schools, grocery stores, gas stations and shopping malls, will tally in the hundreds of millions of dollars. The massive military show of force failed to find Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by the time the day-long lockdown was lifted.
