SEAL Team 6 member charged with impersonating people to get nude pics: report

A Navy SEAL Team 6 member who was named Sailor of the Year in 2016 has been charged with impersonating other people via text to get nude pictures of women, according to a report.

Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Howard faces a general court-martial for the allegations, The Virginian-Pilot reported Friday, citing charge documents.

Howard’s civil defense attorney, Michael Waddington, told the paper that the Navy did not find the alleged photos on Howard’s phone.

The only connection to Howard in the messages, Waddington said, were references to once being stationed in San Diego and to using kettlebells – which hardly narrows things down.

Waddington added that he will try to have the case dismissed at a hearing next week. If it is not, Howard will plead not guilty, Waddington said.

The Navy did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

Friday’s charges follow a spate of controversies in recent weeks for the normally secretive organization.

ADMIRAL CHOSEN TO LEAD NAVY WILL INSTEAD RETIRE AS CONCERNS ARE RAISED ABOUT HIS JUDGMENT

An internal Navy investigation reported by the Navy Times on Tuesday said that six members of SEAL Team 10 were caught in connection with cocaine use in 2018 and had cheated on drug tests.

On Wednesday, a Navy SEAL platoon from San Diego was ordered back to the U.S. from Iraq for the members’ refusal to cooperate with an investigation into alleged sexual assault and reports of drinking alcohol while deployed.

Infant twins found dead, ‘foaming at the mouth,’ in back of car: police

Twin infants were found dead in the back of a car in the Bronx on Friday after their father told police he’d forgotten them while he went to work, officials said.

Authorities found the 7-month-old twins — a boy and a girl — foaming at the mouth around 4 p.m., according to police.

Runaway tire on New Jersey freeway crashes into vehicle: video

A New Jersey police officer’s Jeep was heavily damaged Wednesday when a loose tire rolling down the freeway jumped the median and slammed into the vehicle as he was traveling in the opposite direction.

John Rice, an officer in Piscataway, was traveling behind a vehicle with his wife and three young children as the large tire aimlessly rolled down State Route 440 in Edison in the opposite lanes, he told KABC-TV.

“Initially I thought, ‘Please don’t hit my wife,’ my wife’s in the car in front of me, three kids in the car and that was going through my head: ‘Please don’t hit her,'” Rice said.

A video of the runaway tire that has since gone viral shows it rolling down a freeway and jumping onto the center divider.

It travels atop the median for a few seconds before clipping the vehicle being driven by Rice’s wife, Allison, and then slamming into the Jeep.

“Out of nowhere a tire jumps across the median from the opposite direction into our side of the roadway,” Rice told the news outlet. “Didn’t notice at the time but it struck the rear of my wife’s car and came directly toward the front of my Jeep.”

The video shows the tire colliding with the Jeep, followed by debris being scattered across the freeway.

“I instantly thought he was dead,” Allison Rice said.

No one was seriously injured, though.

New Jersey State Police detectives are investigating where the tire came from.

NYPD makes fourth arrest in cop-soaking incidents

The New York City Police Department has arrested a fourth person in connection with a string of water dousing incidents against uniformed officers in the Bronx earlier in the week.

Robert Perez, 24, was arrested on Thursday night and charged with criminal mischief, harassment, criminal tampering and disorderly conduct after a viral video surfaced on Wednesday of him dousing two female officers with water. Police also believe Perez was involved in another similar incident in the Bronx on Thursday.

TRUMP RIPS ‘HORRIBLE’ DE BLASIO IN WAKE OF NYPD WATER DOUSINGS, BASHES OTHER 2020 DEMS

The Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted footage of Wednesday’s incident proclaiming “NYPD Cops are in DANGER!” and slammed NYPD Police Chief Terence Monahan, asking “where’s the Arrest”.

“No more tough talking, stop blaming the cops if you can’t handle the job perhaps you and O’Neil should find new work!” the SBA said, taking aim at Police Commissioner James O’Neill, as well.

“Any cop who thinks that’s all right, that they can walk away from something like that, maybe they should reconsider whether or not this is the profession for them,” Monahan said Tuesday in response to videos of cops walking away from water assaults in the streets.

Both Monahan and O’Neill were appointed by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has come under harsh criticism from police officers, who in the past turned their backs on him over his unwillingness to defend officers against criticism by Black Lives Matter advocates. President Trump called de Blasio a “horrible mayor” and demanded he “act immediately” in response to the water dousing incidents.

Police are still searching for additional suspects involved in a separate incident in Harlem in which a person threw a red bucket filled with water that hit an officer in the head on Sunday. The NYPD released photos of several suspects they believe were involved in the incident.

Police also arrested a gang member who is believed to be the perpetrator of yet another incident in Brooklyn where a viral video showed a uniformed NYPD officer being doused with water as officers walked on the street. The man approached one and poured a bucket of water directly over his head. The officers seemed to purposefully ignore the attack.

New York City councilmembers urged the District Attorney’s office to enforce harsher punishments on those who attacked police.

“The people who are responsible for these crimes, they need to be prosecuted, they need to be held accountable, and yes, they need to be charged with a felony,” New York City Council Member Eric Ulrich said at a press conference on Tuesday.

Former Mexican cop illegally in US is charged with trafficking enough fentanyl to kill more than 10 million people

Westlake Legal Group fentanyl Former Mexican cop illegally in US is charged with trafficking enough fentanyl to kill more than 10 million people Louis Casiano fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/us/crime/drugs fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 165f30a5-10f6-5fe0-91b2-6bdc8515e115

A former Mexico police officer living illegally in the United States has been charged with trafficking enough fentanyl to kill more than 10 million people, the Justice Department said Friday.

Assmir Contreras-Martinez, 30, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Texas, accused of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, a DOJ statement said. The synthetic opioid is often added to heroin to increase its potency.

DRUG COMPANIES SHIPPED THOUSANDS OF PAIN PILL ORDERS IT SHOULD HAVE HALTED, DOCUMENTS SAY

“Fentanyl is devastating communities across the country,” said Nealy Cox, the U.S. attorney for the Northen District of Texas. “We cannot tolerate the trafficking of this deadly drug through North Texas — especially by those who are charged with protecting our communities, foreign or domestic.”

In May, Contreras-Martinez was pulled over by a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper in Amarillo, who discovered 33 kilograms of white powder in his Ford Explorer.

Testing later revealed the substance to be fentanyl. The quantity was likely enough to kill more than 10 million people, according to experts with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Almost 32,000 people in the U.S. overdosed on synthetic opioids like fentanyl last year, according to recent data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“Fentanyl is the No. 1 threat causing our opioid epidemic in the United States,” said Clyde E. Shelley Jr., DEA special agent in charge of the Dallas field division. “This seizure alone has potentially saved millions of lives.”

Contreras-Martinez told authorities he was paid $6,000 to haul the load from California to Florida. It was his second such trip. He admitted to illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico seven months earlier, and had worked as a municipal police officer in Cananea, Sonora, Mexico.

He faces as much as 30 years to life in prison and possible deportation after serving his sentence.

Uber removes driver after he used woman’s account to give himself with 5-star rating, $100 tip, report says

An Uber driver reportedly has been banned from using the app after a New Jersey woman claimed he used her account to give himself a 5-star rating and $100 tip following a recent ride.

Donna Wilson-Booker tells Fox29 that she was returning home to Willsboro from an airport when the driver – who acted polite and had helped place her luggage in the vehicle – missed what she said was an obvious turn on his GPS route.

Once she arrived at her destination, “he said ‘would you mind, can I use your app, cause of the recent incidents with passengers Uber has a problem when we go off track or off route, I just want to adjust the route’,” Wilson-Booker said.

She obliged and handed over her phone. But then hours later, when Wilson-Booker opened up the app again to leave a tip and rating for the driver, she noticed that he had already used her account to leave a 5-star review and a generous $100 tip for him, according to Fox29.

Chelsea Clinton denies close ties to Jeffrey Epstein’s ex

Chelsea Clinton echoed her ex-president father in denying an association with Jeffrey Epstein and reports that she was a close friend of Ghislaine Maxwell, the wealthy financier’s former girlfriend — who settled at least two lawsuits over sex-related allegations.

Epstein, 66, was arrested July 6 on sex trafficking charges. He pleaded not guilty to accusations he ran a trafficking operation involving teens.

He allegedly created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from 2002 “up to and including” 2005, enabling him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls” in addition to paying victims to recruit other girls.

Since his arrest, many prominent figures have come forward to deny their association with Epstein, most notably former President Bill Clinton, who said he “knows nothing” about the allegations and took just a few trips on Epstein’s airplane.

But now the former first daughter also has issued a statement amid a Politico report that Maxwell, who was not charged but reportedly settled two lawsuits filed by women who claimed she participated in the alleged sex trafficking, has been close to the Clinton family.

Maxwell reportedly became friends with Chelsea Clinton, vacationing together on a yacht in 2009 and attending Chelsea’s wedding to Marc Mezvinsky in 2010.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN FOUND INJURED IN NEW YORK CITY JAIL CELL AFTER POSSIBLE SUICIDE ATTEMPT: REPORT

“Ghislaine was the contact between Epstein and Clinton,” a person familiar with the relationship told the outlet. “She ended up being close to the family because she and Chelsea ended up becoming close.”

The spokesperson for Chelsea Clinton and her husband told Politico that the couple wasn’t aware of Maxwell’s alleged involvement in Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.

“It wasn’t until 2015 that Chelsea and (her husband) Marc became aware of the horrific allegations against Ghislaine Maxwell and hope that all the victims find justice,” the spokesperson said.

“Chelsea and Marc were friendly with her because of her relationship with a dear friend of theirs. When that relationship ended, Chelsea and Marc’s friendship with her ended as well.”

“It wasn’t until 2015 that Chelsea and (her husband) Marc became aware of the horrific allegations against Ghislaine Maxwell and hope that all the victims find justice.”

Bill Clinton’s spokesman issued a similar statement after Epstein’s arrest, claiming he “knows nothing” about the “terrible crimes” allegedly committed by Epstein.

“In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation,” the statement said.

“Staff, supporters of the foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and he has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”
