Andy Dick alleged attack captured on surveillance video

Video obtained by local news outlets Tuesday reportedly showed the alleged attack of controversial comedian Andy Dick outside a New Orleans bar over the weekend.

The surveillance video shows a man who appears to be the comedian standing in a crowd outside the One Eyed Jacks bar in the French Quarter Saturday. Another man dressed in a black t-shirt can be seen approaching.

The man appears to take a swing at Dick, who falls. The alleged attacker then picks up a bottle and slowly walks away. A woman chases after him, New Orleans’ Fox 8 reported.

ANDY DICK ‘COLD COCKED’ OUTSIDE NEW ORLEANS CLUB, HOSPITALIZED: REPORT

Robert Couvillion, Dick’s booking agent, told the outlet that his client was “cold-cocked” outside the bar, slammed into the cement and was knocked out for 15 minutes. Dick was hospitalized for several days before returning to Los Angeles Monday.

“We thought he was dead. Then, when he did get up, he thought he was in L.A. He was unresponsive, his eyes were swimming in his head and it was really bad,” Couvillion said.

The New Orleans Police Department has attempted to meet with Dick following the incident and wants to talk with him, the department said in a statement. A criminal complaint was filed.

Guitarist Paris Dylan said he saw the alleged attack.

“What’s shocking to me is how clear it is that the assailant wasn’t provoked in any way,” Dylan told Nola Tuesday. “That he attacked with the intent to severely injure or even kill, out of nowhere. It was a very frightening scene.”

“I rolled him over on his side and continued to try to keep him awake before paramedics arrived,” he said.

Daughter, 23, strangled, dismembered mom, then scattered remains in trash, police say

A Washington state woman was arrested on first-degree murder charges this week, accused of strangling her mother, then dismembering the body and scattering the remains in dumpsters and trash cans around the city where they lived, according to reports.

Amara J. Lundy, 23, who lived with her mother, allegedly used a cord to murder Susan Lundy, 58, who had been missing since July 6, The Olympian reported.

The daughter then reportedly discarded the body in a yard waste container for several days before dismembering the remains with a kitchen knife and small saw.

When friends of the mother reported her missing, more than a month had passed since they’d last seen her, The Olympian reported. When police searched the home, they detected a strong bleach smell in the basement.

At first, the daughter reportedly told detectives her mother had gone camping and had moved out of the house. Then in an interview with police she “described how she went to great lengths (to) make it look like her mother had simply left town, destroying her mother’s cell phone and throwing her identification in the garbage can,” police said, according to The Olympian.

Lundy told police that her mother “begged” for her to stop but she felt she had to continue strangling her until she stopped thrashing, according to The Olympian.

The daughter told police she had “grown tired of her mother and decided that if her mother was dead things would be better for several people,” Q13 Fox reported.

Lundy is being held without bail.

Epstein guards suspected of falsifying logs to show they were checking on him: report

Westlake Legal Group df517604-AP19222471790918 Epstein guards suspected of falsifying logs to show they were checking on him: report Gerren Keith Gaynor fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc article 79430cac-c3d4-5c64-bbc6-df083233357e

Guards at the New York City jail facility where Jeffrey Epstein is said to have killed himself are suspected of falsifying log entries to show they were checking on the alleged sex trafficker and other inmates with greater regularity than was the case, according to a Tuesday report.

Surveillance video reviewed after Epstein’s death shows guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center did not make some of the checks they claimed to have made in their logs, a source told the Associated Press.

GIULIANI: BARR’S GOING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS

The federal jail workers claimed they were checking on inmates in Epstein’s unit every half hour, but investigators now believe that was not the case. The Justice Department on Tuesday said that two guards assigned to watch Epstein had been placed on administrative leave.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN ‘SPECIAL OBSERVATION’ WATCH PROTOCOLS WENT UNHEEDED IN HOURS BEFORE DEATH: REPORTS

The latest revelation, first reported by CBS News, comes amid growing conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein’s death as he awaited trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges. Prosecutors said he sexually abused dozens of young girls in his New York and Florida residences between 2002 and 2005, allegations that could have landed him behind bars for 45 years.

Many lawmakers and conspiracy theorists alike wonder how he could commit suicide inside the Special Housing Unit at the jail facility. Attorney General William Barr said Monday there were “serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning,” and said he was demanding “a thorough investigation.”

A 14-year-old girl vacationing with her family at Glacier National Park in Montana was killed Monday when rocks came tumbling down on their moving vehicle.

The family, from Utah, were riding on Going-to-the-Sun Road when a number of rocks rained down from the mountain and onto their vehicle at about 7 p.m., according to a Glacier National Park release.

The rocks, ranging from “fist-sized” to “12-inches in diameter,” landed on the roof and shattered the rear windshield, the release said.

The teen’s parents and two other children in the vehicle were also injured in the incident.

Paramedics attempted to take the girl to a hospital, but she died on the way there.

Missouri police officer battling cancer leaves hospital to walk autistic son to first day of kindergarten

A Missouri police officer fighting cancer had a special first-day-of-kindergarten surprise for his 5-year-old son battling autism.

Woodson Terrace Officer Andy Mattaline was overcome with emotion when doctors at Saint Louis University Hospital cleared him to leave in his wheelchair for a few hours to attend his son’s first day of school in the Rockwood School District.

“This is one of my biggest days and I just didn’t want to miss this,” Mattaline, who has been hospitalized and recovering from surgery for esophageal and stomach cancer, told FOX 2 of St. Louis about his son, Carmine. “He means the world to me. We’ve been through a lot together.”

The surprise got even bigger when Mattaline was joined by more than 20 police officers from at least 10 departments who promised to step in and walk his son to school in the event that the father of two was too sick to make it himself.

Officers from nine other police departments — St. John, Bel-Bor, Breckenridge Hills, Chesterfield, Maryland Heights, Warson Woods, Normandy, Webster Groves and St. Louis County — and deputies from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office all participated in the first-day-of-school walk.

“I just love the support. … I can’t thank anybody enough,” Mattaline said.

“We’re friends but we’re family also,” Officer Chris Kaatman told FOX 2. “We want to do whatever we can to again make this day special for him and his family.”

It was an emotional moment for Andy’s wife, Mary, and their 3-year-old daughter, Evelyn, who had been preparing Carmine to cope with his autism in time for the first day of school.

“It’s pretty amazing. It’s so touching to see everyone here and everyone that hears about Andy wants to be there for Carmine,” Mary Matteline said.

“I just can’t wait to release him into the world,” Andy Mattaline said. “To his first step to transition into becoming something we all want to see him flourish into.”

Rudy Giuliani: Jeffrey Epstein death ‘completely incredible’

Westlake Legal Group admin-ajax-5 Rudy Giuliani: Jeffrey Epstein death 'completely incredible' fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/new-york-city fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/person/william-barr fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 70c1d004-f4d1-5b8c-ac71-3a59082b1049

Speaking with intimate knowledge of the lockup where Jeffrey Epstein was held, ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he considers the financier’s death perplexing.

Giuliani said Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle” he knew the setup of the floor the convicted sex offender was held on and had been inside the facility at least 20 times in his former roles as a prosecutor and defense attorney.

“I don’t like conspiracy theories,” Giuliani told guest host Jesse Watters. “I don’t think we should engage in them yet because we need to know the facts, but the whole thing is completely incredible to me.”

GHISLAINE MAXWELL, JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ALLEGED ‘RECRUITER,’ NOW UNDER THE MICROSCOPE

Giuliani said Epstein, whose private island, Little Saint James, U.S.V.I., was recently raided by federal agents, was the, “most high-risk prisoner in that facility” and should have been better monitored.

“I’ve been in [the Metropolitan Correctional Center] probably 20 times as a prosecutor and a defense lawyer,” he recalled. “I watched it being built.”

More from media

“He was virtually unprotected,” the personal attorney to President Trump added.

Giuliani claimed there were several potential ways Epstein could have been killed, if not for his apparent suicide.

“He could kill himself, prisoners could kill him because they don’t like alleged perverts … and don’t like people who might cooperate,” he said.

However, the ex-mayor said he is very hopeful the federal government will get to the bottom of the alleged sex trafficker’s death.

“I have tremendous confidence in Attorney General Barr,” he said.

Epstein was reportedly on “special observation watch” at the time of his apparent suicide Saturday morning, but the stringent protocols associated with the watch were not followed, officials said, revealing yet another apparent procedural lapse at the Manhattan lockup — which on Tuesday afternoon was assigned a new warden “pending the outcome of the investigations” into the financier’s death.

FDNY reviews reports of Epstein death leaked on 4Chan

Westlake Legal Group df517604-AP19222471790918 FDNY reviews reports of Epstein death leaked on 4Chan Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc d9f5e997-14d6-53c0-8118-aedf6c9d114f article

The Fire Department of New York told Fox News on Tuesday that it looked into online leaks of information related to the death of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein — but concluded that the leaks “did not come from the Department.”

“[D]ont ask me how I know, but Epstein died an hour ago from hanging, cardiac arrest. Screencap this,” an anonymous person posted on the message board 4Chan at 8:16 a.m. Saturday, almost 40 minutes before officials confirmed initial media reports of the disgraced multimillionaire’s apparent suicide inside his Manhattan jail cell.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN USED BEDSHEET TO MAKE NOOSE: REPORT

The post’s author, who appeared to be a first responder, medical worker or someone else involved in the initial response at the jail, later released more details about efforts to resuscitate Epstein.

“Worked asystole arrest for 40 minutes, als[o] intubated in the field/epi/2 liters NS infused. Telemetry advised bicarb and D50 in the field. Pt transported to Lower Manhattan ER and worked for 20 minutes and called. Hospital administrator was alerted, preparing statements,” the follow-up post said.

Dr. Keith Wesley, an emergency medicine physician, told BuzzFeed News that “Telemetry” “implies the paramedics were in contact with a medical control hospital who then gave orders to give Sodium Bicarbonate, bicarb which is designed to reverse the acid buildup in the blood from prolonged cardiac arrest.”

“The FDNY reviewed the alleged information and determined it did not come from the Department,” an FDNY spokesperson told Fox News. “At no time was there an investigation.”

Mystery and incredulity shrouded the death of Epstein, 66, whom federal prosecutors in New York had charged with multiple counts of sex-trafficking and misconduct. Authorities alleged he paid girls as young as 14 hundreds of dollars for massages before molesting them at his homes in New York and Palm Beach, Fla., from 2002 through 2005.

Many lawmakers and conspiracy theorists alike wonder how he could commit suicide inside the Special Housing Unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Attorney General William Barr said Monday there were “serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning,” and said he was demanding “a thorough investigation.”

“The FBI and the Office of the Inspector General are doing just that. We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability,” Barr said.

An autopsy was performed Sunday but the cause of death was not revealed pending the results of other investigations.

Dayton gunman shot 26 people in 32 seconds before police killed him, officials say

The gunman who carried out the Aug. 4 mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio spent nearly two hours in the area before he opened fire, killing nine people and injuring 17 more, according to newly released surveillance footage pieced together from several local businesses.

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said Tuesday that 24-year-old Connor Betts shot 26 people in the span of 32 seconds before responding officers fatally shot him outside of Blind Bob’s bar. Previously, police and hospital officials said at least 14 injured people suffered gunshots wounds. Overall, 15 of the people shot that night were female and 11 were male.

PROSECUTORS SAY FRIEND OF OHIO SHOOTER BOUGH HIM ARMOR, FIREARM

Betts was first caught on camera in the area at 11:04 p.m. when he parked his car and walked to Blind Bob’s with his sister Megan and another companion.

Police said the footage “strongly suggests that his [the siblings’] companion,” who was wounded in the rampage, “had no idea what he [Betts] was gonna do nor did he have any knowledge of the weapons that were in the trunk of that vehicle.”

All three of them went to Blind Bob’s, where they remained until 12:13 a.m. Betts left the bar alone and went across the street to another bar, Ned Peppers, staying there until 12:42 a.m.

Betts, dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, then left Ned Peppers and headed back in the direction of the parking lot, crossing paths with a police cruiser that was in the area, Lt. Paul Saunders said during a press conference.

Biehl said there is a “strong probability” that Betts went into Ned Peppers to case it but added, “he was very familiar with the Oregon district so this was not a place that he did not know.”

“This was a plan well before he got to the Oregon district,” Biehl said noting that its unlikely that anything happened inside of the bars that made the shooter decide to carry out his rampage.

Police say the shooter went back to his car and spent eight minutes changing into a long sleeve dark hoodie and “gathering content out of the trunk of that vehicle,” which included a “very heavy backpack.”

Authorities say Betts spent about nine minutes making his way from the parking lot towards the strip of bars again, through an alley connecting the two and used that time to load his AR-15 style gun before he emerged from behind the alley and opened fire near Blind Bob’s at 1:04 a.m.

Police confirmed that the shooter’s sister, Megan Betts, was one of the first three fatalities, but Biehl conceded that law enforcement officials had “radically different views” about whether the shooter intentionally killed his sister first.

Biehl revealed that phone evidence from that night showed that the shooter texted back and forth with his sister and their companion as soon as seven minutes before the shooting began and that the companion told Betts that they were at a taco stand near Blind Bob’s.

Biehl said Betts “did know where they were at because they were communicating during this hour back and forth.”

Biehl also said that Betts and his sister spoke on the phone before the shooting, although it is unclear the content of the phone call. Despite knowing their whereabouts, police said they could not conclusively say whether the shooter could see his sister and her companion from his vantage point across from Blind Bob’s, as they may have been obscured by the decor of the bar, which included umbrellas on the patio.

“By our best resources that we have at our fingertips, we believe that the shooting started at approximately 1:05 and 35 seconds. We believe it ended at 1:06 and 7 seconds; that’s 32 seconds” Saunders said.

Biehl’s said that although Betts was wearing body armor throughout the shooting, the armor was “vulnerable,” allowing responding officers to shoot and kill him.

“He had (ballistic) plates but that’s all,” Biehl’s said.

Although authorities could not confirm the shooter’s motive, Biehl’s said Betts had a “history of obsession with violence and violence ideations, the discussion of interests in mass shootings and the expression of desire to carry out a mass shooting.”

Biehl’s said Betts was in the Oregon District the night before the shooting, adding you “certainly have to consider there was some thought being given to it at that time.”

Police found some evidence of drug paraphernalia “on his person” but whether Betts was intoxicated or under the influence of drugs remains uncertain pending toxicology reports, Biehl said.

Authorities have said there was nothing in Betts’ background to prevent him from buying the gun, stating that the weapon was purchased online from a dealer in Texas and shipped to another firearms dealer in the Dayton area.

Chris Plante: Tom Steyer may make next Dem debate, but appears ‘antithetical’ to party doctrine

Billionaire Tom Steyer hopes to make September’s Democratic presidential debates, but his history is antithetical to current party orthodoxy, according to Chris Plante.

Steyer, a New York native who founded San Francisco hedge fund Farallon Capital, invested in two major industries many Democratic leaders find problematic, the conservative radio host claimed Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“This is all such a horrible cable television show at this point,” he said of the Democrats’ 2020 field. “Tom Steyer is a San Francisco billionaire hedge fund manager who made piles of money on coal and coal mines, and on private prisons. I think this guy is supposed to be the antithesis of everything today’s Democratic Party represents.”

Plante said Steyer has spent large sums in support of his own candidacy over the past several months — including millions on Facebook and television ads and tens of millions on his “Need to Impeach” initiative.

The commentator said Steyer has reportedly met the 130,000-donor threshold to make the next debates, but may yet need to reach the polling percentage requirement.

“Isn’t he everything that the Democrats hate?” he asked.

“He should really just buy Gallup,” he added.

In recent remarks played by host Mark Steyn, Steyer demanded that President Trump be impeached and called him a racist.

“For two years, we’ve been saying ‘impeach this man’ and get him out of office, because he’s broken the law, because he’s met the criteria for impeachment and because he’s a racist. That’s always been in the background. You never see one cockroach with Donald Trump — all the cockroaches are there,” Steyer said.
