In a surprise move late Tuesday, the legal team for Kyle Rittenhouse filed a motion for a mistrial after accusing prosecutors of withholding crucial evidence.

By law the prosecution is obligated to share all evidence with the defense and vice versa.

However, prosecutors for the state of Wisconsin allegedly held back high-definition drone footage of Rittenhouse shooting the first victim, Antifa protester Joseph Rosenbaum.

Prosecutors provided the defense with a blurred copy of the shooting.

The footage was filmed with a $40,000 Chinese-made DJI drone operated by federal agents on the night of the Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha in August 2020.

The footage shows Rittenhouse, then 17, being pursued through a parking lot by Rosenbaum. In the video, Rittenhouse spun around and shot Rosenbaum with his AR-15 assault rifle from a distance of less than 3 feet.

The jurors could barely make out the scene in the blurred video copy shown in court.

In his closing argument on Friday, lead prosecutor Thomas Binger claimed Rittenhouse shot Rosenbaum "multiple times" in the back as he lay on the ground dying.

An autopsy determined Rosenbaum was shot in the hand, groin and back.

The state's case for first-degree reckless homicide is based on the autopsy findings.

But the prosecutor's high-definition copy of the drone video shows Rittenhouse fired only once at Rosenbaum from the front -- not the back -- and not while he was on the ground.

Late Tuesday, Rittenhouse's legal team asked Judge Bruce Schroeder to declare a mistrial with prejudice, meaning the state can't refile charges against Rittenhouse.

Judge Schroeder said he would consider the motion.

The word out of Kenosha, Wisconsin is the jury deliberating Kyle Rittenhouse's fate want to acquit him of murder. But two jurors are afraid to vote to acquit.

According to political activist Jack Posobiec, the two jurors are concerned that Black Lives Matter and the news media will publicly identify them and publicize their personal information, such as home addresses, if they vote for acquittal. This intimidation tactic is known as "doxing."

The jurors were filmed walking into the courthouse one day last week.

The U.S. Marshal is reportedly offering protection to the jurors and their families.

Deliberations are done for the night and will resume tomorrow morning.

"Inexcusable", "Jury intimidation", were some of the reactions of gun experts and others after Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger pointed an AR-15 rifle at the jury during the Kyle Rittenhouse trial on Monday.

Rittenhouse, 18, faces multiple charges for shooting three Antifa protestors, killing 2 of them, during a night of unrest that erupted in Kenosha, WI after a police officer shot and wounded Jacob Blake.

Gun experts accused Binger of violating the 5 basic rules of gun safety by pointing a gun at the jury with his finger on the trigger.

Binger claims someone checked the rifle to make sure it was unloaded, but Binger never checked the rifle himself before pointing it at the jury.

The first rule of gun safety is the gun is always loaded.

The jury will begin deliberating Rittenhouse's guilt or innocence today, Nov. 16. Observers are concerned that the prosecutor's actions during closing arguments on Monday will negatively influence the jury.

Many believe Binger was attempting to intimidate the jury since the trial didn't go his way. Others accused the lead prosecutor of intentionally pulling a stunt to get a mistrial.

Rittenhouse, who lives part-time with his father in Kenosha, drove just over the border from his mother's home in Antioch, Illinois the night of the protests in August 2020.

He was 17 at the time of the shootings and armed with a borrowed AR-15 assault rifle. He said he went there to help protect a car dealership from rioters.

The Judge threw out a weapons possession charge against Rittenhouse, since Wisconsin law permits youths under 18 to carry long guns for hunting purposes.

The prosecutor in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial claims the teenager lost his right to self-defense because he carried a gun.

State prosecutor Thomas Binger told the jury:

"You lose the right to self-defense when you're the one who brought the gun... When you're the one creating the danger. When you're the one provoking other people."

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, carried a borrowed AR-15 rifle while protecting a car dealership during the riots.

Judge Bruce Schroeder allowed the jury to consider lesser charges during closing arguments on Monday. However, he dismissed the charge that the teen was unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Wisconsin law states that anyone under 18 who carries a dangerous weapon is guilty of a misdemeanor.

Rittenhouse faces 5 additional charges, including intentional homicide and recklessly endangering safety.

Closing arguments are still underway at this hour.

Ex-Chicago Bulls player Corey Benjamin apologized after his 14-year-old daughter sucker-punched a 15-year-old girl in a viral video.

In the shocking video, Benjamin's daughter, who has not been identified because she's a minor, sucker-punched Lauryn Ham during a girls basketball tournament in Orange County.

Lauryn's mother Alice Ham shared the video on Instagram, where it went viral.

Alice captioned the video:

"THIS... this right here makes me SICK to my stomach. This happened to MY DAUGHTER at her game yesterday. There is absolutely no place for something like this in basketball, I don't care how famous you are!!"

Alice Ham, pictured right, accused the other girl's mother of telling her to punch Lauryn, pictured left.

"This mom told her daughter to 'go and hit her' and my kid gets an unprovoked sucker punch. I'm sorry but it's everything that's wrong with youth sports. The girl and her mom showed absolutely no remorse and offered no apology. Youth sports needs to change."

Alice Ham filed a report against the juvenile and is considering filing charges against the girl and her mother.

Kevin Hahn, an attorney representing Lauryn Ham, says this isn't the first time Benjamin's daughter took a swing at opposing players.

She was suspended for punching two rival players during a basketball tournament in September.

"My understanding is that organization that held the tournament [in September] banned her and suspended her from any other tournaments in their organization," Hahn said.

He says Orange County tournament officials probably weren't aware of the suspension.

Corey Benjamin has apologized to Alice and her daughter Lauryn, who suffered a concussion.

"This is not how I raised my daughter," said Benjamin, who played with the Bulls and the Atlanta Hawks in 2003 before finishing his career overseas.

"To the young lady who was punched by my daughter during a youth basketball game, I sincerely apologize to you and I am praying for your complete healing both physically and emotionally," he said.

"As a father, I'm shocked and disappointed at my daughter's behavior as this is not a reflection of the values and standards that my family holds. Nor does it exemplify the values, character and spirit of sportsmanship that the game of basketball requires.

"My daughter made a mistake. One that she will need to make right. I am committed to getting my daughter any help she may need and support her in taking accountability for her conduct."

In a surprising turn of events on Friday, prosecutors in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial admitted "a reasonable jury" could acquit the teenager.

Rittenhouse faces six counts, including First Degree Intentional Homicide, in the shooting deaths of two Antifa protesters who attacked him during the Jacob Blake riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer.

Judge Bruce Schroeder dismissed the jury on Thursday and told them closing arguments would begin Monday.

However, on Friday, the prosecution admitted the 18-year-old could be acquitted of first-degree intentional homicide.

Assistant District Attorney James Kraus asked Judge Schroder to allow the jury to consider "a multitude of lesser charges," including second-degree manslaughter during closing arguments on Monday.

Second-degree manslaughter (reckless homicide) carries less weight than first-degree intentional homicide.

Krause admitted the state has no confidence that the jury would convict the baby-faced teenager.

Krause said a "reasonable jury or juror" could find Rittenhouse not guilty because he acted in self-defense.

Prosecutors hope the judge will grant their request so Rittenhouse could get some prison time if convicted on the lesser charges.

Judge Schroeder will announce his decision on Monday.

Rittenhouse took the stand on Wednesday and broke down in tears as he described an angry mob chasing him.

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, said he was forced to use a borrowed AR-15 to defend himself.

"I didn't do anything wrong, I was defending myself," he cried.

A Kansas mom and her two minor daughters returned home to find their apartment cleaned out and their personal belongings thrown away.

Myrohn Guthrie said her jaw dropped when she walked into the empty apartment and realized her furniture, electronics, and even the children's toys were gone.

"I just started crying immediately and my jaw dropped and I was like, oh my God," Guthrie told FOX 4 Kansas City.

She said the Gateway Plaza Townhomes property management told her to call the police when she initially thought she had been robbed.

Then it became apparent that she was evicted from her home of two years due to a clerical error.

A company hired to clear out the apartment mistakenly missed their assignment by one number.

"They [property management] haven't responded to anybody and I move Monday, thank God," Guthrie told Fox News.

Guthrie and her daughters are staying with friends until they find another place.

Guthrie said she doesn't have renters' insurance and she created a GoFundMe page to help raise money to pay for furniture, new clothes, toiletries, dishes, pots and pans, and other essentials for the family's new home.

She estimates her furniture, electronics and other items were worth about $32,000. But some of her personal belongings were irreplaceable, such as her children's baby photos, original birth certificates and important documents like social security cards.

Guthrie said the property management still hasn't contacted her to apologize or offer compensation for her loss.

Fox News reached out to the Seldin Company managers, but did not get a response.

Teenage runaway Jashyah Moore was found safe in New York City after she was last seen at a deli in East Orange, NJ a month ago.

No Amber Alert was issued for the wayward 14-year-old after she was reported as a possible runaway on October 14.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens confirmed Jashyah was found safe on Thursday.

"Jashyah is currently safe and is being provided all appropriate services. She will be returned to NJ shortly. No additional information is available at this time," said Stephens in a press release.

During a press conference, law enforcement officials said Jashyah was initially reported as a runaway. Jashyah's family denied she was a runaway and expressed concerns that her life was in danger.

According to a family member's post on Facebook, Jashyah has run away from home before. She is active on social media and may have been lured away from home by a social media user.

A $20,000 reward was offered for her safe return.

Jamie Moore believed her daughter was abducted and she insists her daughter would not run away from home. "She didn't go. She ain't missing. Somebody got my daughter," she said last month. "Please come home Shyah. We miss you."

Panicked residents scrambled to evacuate an apartment complex in Oak Park, Illinois, amid fears the building could collapse.

An emergency evacuation order is in effect at the seven-story, 48-unit apartment building after an inspector discovered it was in "imminent danger of failure or collapse."

An inspection at the Oak View Tower on North Boulevard found sloping floors and visible cracks in the foundation and columns.

Residents were given just 5 days to pack up and move out, but many seniors said they have nowhere to go.

Residents were mindful of a partial building collapse in Chicago in March, and a deadly condo collapse in Surfside, Florida in June (pictured), that left 98 people dead.

Oak View Tower resident Debra Leonard-Porch said the building's management helped her find a new place.

"My mind had kinda been at Surfside for a while because of the cracks," Leonard-Porch said.

"It was a no-brainer. Yes, I might not like it for a year, but I'm not gonna get crushed by a building."

California Governor Gavin Newsome has not been seen in public since he received the Covid-19 mRNA booster injection on October 27.

Two days later, Newsome's office issued a vague statement explaining Newsome's absence was due to "family obligations".

Then, Newsome missed the global climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland last week -- a conference attended by heads of state and government including the U.S. President.

According to The Defender, Newsome allegedly suffered a serious adverse reaction to the Moderna COVID vaccine he received on Oct. 27.

He reportedly experienced symptoms similar to those associated with Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS).

Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare but serious autoimmune disorder in which your immune system attacks nerve cells in your body.

GBS damages the myelin sheath - the protective coating surrounding your nerve cells. Just like a frayed electrical wire, damage to the myelin sheath disrupts signals from the brain to the arms and legs.

Symptoms of GBS begin with tingling and numbness in your fingers and toes that spread up your arms and legs.

Symptoms also include muscle weakness that gets worse over time, making it difficult to talk or walk and can lead to paralysis.

On Sunday, Newsome's wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, tweeted — then quickly deleted — a post telling people to "stop hating" on her husband and "get a life."
