Video shows nearly naked man trying to force his way into school bus on California freeway

Westlake Legal Group Newhall Video shows nearly naked man trying to force his way into school bus on California freeway fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/odd-news fox news fnc/us fnc Bradford Betz be65c9f3-36bd-5317-a687-ed415ba864a7 article

A nearly naked man was recorded on video early Tuesday running after a school bus in the middle of a California freeway and trying to force his way in.

The bizarre incident took place on Interstate 5 in Newhall, about an hour’s drive north of Los Angeles. The unidentified man could be seen pounding on the bus windows as it sat in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

“The guy started getting closer and closer,” the driver later told Los Angeles’ Fox 11. “I have no idea why he approached us. Everything was locked because we were driving. We never opened the door.”

The bus had just dropped students off at school and was carrying other drivers heading back to the bus yard, according to the station.

The freeway was briefly shut down while authorities detained the suspect, officials said.

Shortly before the freeway incident, the suspect was captured on surveillance video breaking into the Newhall Church of Nazarene.

The church’s pastor, Josh Johnson, told Fox 11 the suspect was “out of his mind” and yelling. He said the suspect vandalized church property before fleeing the scene and running onto the interstate.

The suspect is charged with one count of felony vandalism, Fox 11 reported. He reportedly has a past conviction for attempted carjacking.

Triple threat storm systems form, expected to impact Texas, Bermuda with rainfall, winds

A trio of storm systems were brewing in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday, with one preparing to dump heavy rain in parts of Texas and Louisiana in the coming days.

Tropical Storm Imelda was upgraded from a depression Tuesday afternoon and made landfall in Freeport, Texas around 1 p.m. with 40 mph winds. Threats from the storm include heavy rainfall and flooding in the Houston area, said Jeff Lindner, a meteorologist for the Harris County Flood Control District.

Imelda could bring up to 18 inches of rain to parts of southeastern parts of the state. Parts of Houston and Galveston had received two to three inches by Tuesday morning.

HURRICANE DORIAN DEATH TOLL RISES TO 7 IN THE BAHAMAS, US MONITORS STORM’S PATH

Lindner said because the ground is dry, initial parts of the rainfall should go toward “saturating the ground,” though the potential for flooding remains a concern. The Houston metro area is vulnerable to flooding.

More than six inches of rain is expected to fall in the city in the next few days, although some areas could see more than a foot. A tropical storm warning was posted for Sargent to Port Bolivar along Texas’ coast, and includes Galveston, The Washington Post reported.

“The difference of just a few miles could be the difference of several inches of rain,” the National Weather Service wrote.

Gov. Greg Abbott has placed resources on standby across the state. The Texas Division of Emergency Management will be rostering four boat squads in coastal areas. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will be moving boats to support the Beaumont area and adjacent regions.

In the Atlantic, the third hurricane of the season is expected to strengthen as it continues to make its way toward Bermuda. Hurricane Humberto, a Category 2 storm, is expected to clip the British island territory.

“Humberto is expected to become a major hurricane by [Tuesday night] or Wednesday morning,” the National Hurricane Center said.

Bermudian officials have issued a hurricane watch and tropical storm warning. It’s expected to bring tropical-force winds along with several inches of rain.

Humberto is expected to move east-northeast through Thursday with an increase in speed. Large swells generated by the hurricane are expected to increase along Bermuda’s coast by Wednesday.

While the storm is not threatening the U.S. mainland, it’s still creating some dangers for beachgoers. Large swells are forecast to affect the Southeast coast from east-central Florida to North Carolina over the next couple of days.

A new tropical depression was announced Tuesday in the Atlantic between the Leeward Islands and Cape Verde, the Post reported. It’s likely to become a storm by Tuesday evening, according to the NHC.

It is then expected to move west and become a hurricane by Friday morning.

Forecasters believe it will come close to Puerto Rico before moving out to sea by the weekend. If it’s upgraded to a storm, it will be named Jerry.

Illegal immigrant involved in crash that killed Indianapolis Colts’ Edwin Jackson gets additional prison time

A Guatemalan national who was convicted of causing a crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver was slapped with an additional 42-month jail sentence Tuesday for reentering the U.S. after he had been previously deported.

Chief U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson ordered Manuel Orrego-Zavala to serve his sentence consecutive to his sentence of 16 years in state prison at the request of prosecutor William McCoskey, who said it would “send a strong message to the defendant and others similarly situated that we are a nation of laws and that there are real consequences that come from violating those laws.”

REP. MATT GAETZ: TRUMP CRACKDOWN ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION SUCCESSDING – AMERICA BENEFITS

Orrego-Zavala, 38, was in the U.S. illegally for the third time in February 2018 when he struck 26-year-old Jackson and his 54-year-old Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, who had pulled over and were standing on the shoulder of I-70 in Indianapolis. Orrego-Zavala was driving a pickup truck and had a blood-alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit. The two victims were stopped on the highway because Jackson said he wasn’t feeling well and needed Monroe to pull over.

Orrego-Zavala pled guilty to causing death while operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol in July 2018 and was given the maximum sentence of 16 years in prison. He had previously been convicted of two drug felonies in California and was deported in 2007. Authorities found him illegally in the U.S. again in May 2009 and deported him for a second time, according to court records.

“Mr. Orrego-Zavala re-entered the country illegally for the second time before he put the public safety of Indianapolis at risk and took the lives of two innocent men on February 4, 2018,” U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said in a press release. “This prosecution represents our office’s commitment to charging aliens that illegally re-enter the country, especially if they are a risk to public safety or there is a criminal history present.”

Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6087117830001_6087116212001-vs Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’ Matt Finn fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article 86e1937b-16e3-5e2b-82d5-f8cb90ae0a8c

Minneapolis police report 20 people have been arrested, 18 of them charged, in connection with two brutal mob-style robberies caught on tape in viral videos.

The suspects range in age from 15 to 27 and were charged with various counts of robbery relating to two vicious robberies in August in which mobs surrounded young men and beat them unconscious. Some suspects were charged with first-degree felony robbery, which carries up to 20 years in prison.

Police told Fox News mobs targeted “vulnerable” victims for valuables like cell phones.

Brendan O’Brien, 24, told Fox News he was out celebrating his birthday in Minneapolis when he was surrounded by one of the mobs and then beaten. The video appears to show O’Brien clinging to his belongings until he finally was knocked out.

VIDEOS OF MINNEAPOLIS ROBBERIES, MOB-STYLE BEATINGS GO VIRAL

“I didn’t realize how hard I’d been kicked in the face. It was much more brutal than I thought it was going to be. I assumed that they hit me a couple of times and I gave up and they went on their way but I was knocked unconscious,” O’Brien told Fox News.

O’Brien says he suffered a concussion and injuries all over his body. He now has trouble with memory, sleeping and has a sense of fear.

“I don’t feel as safe as I used to. I think that’s the best way of putting it is that something like this kind of takes a part away from you and I don’t know if I’m gonna’ get that back,” O’Brien said.

Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo told Fox News the attacks seen in the videos are abhorrent.

“It is truly unacceptable for me as chief and it’s unacceptable for our Minneapolitans,” Arradondo said. “No one wants to tolerate that type of criminal behavior.”

Police told Fox News a team of investigators worked for three weeks in partnership with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department to track down the assailants.

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICER SHORTAGE REACHING CRISIS LEVEL

“There has to be consequences for your actions,” Arradondo told Fox News. “I don’t want there to be a small group of people that feel that they can go unchallenged, unchecked.”

The videos appear to show groups of black men beating white males but Minneapolis police told Fox News the attacks do not qualify as hate crimes because the attackers didn’t target their victims for class or race. Rather, they were targeted because they were “impaired” or “compromised.”

The videos are emerging as Arradondo said his office is dealing with a crippling police shortage. He has requested a staggering 400 additional officers by 2025. But he said he has to convince an entire city council made up of some members that don’t want to add a single officer to the force.

“I’m going to continue to make the case and hopefully we’ll continue to get the resources that we need to help support the men and women who are doing this job,” Arradondo told Fox News.

So far, Mayor Jacob Frey has proposed 14 additional officers.

The public safety committee chair, Alondra Cano, told Fox News that the city council is now considering adding up to 30 or 40 additional officers to the force. However, the final number won’t be decided until a budget is passed in December.

Cano said a beefed-up police department might have been able to prevent or quickly solve the violent robberies seen on video.

“It was really concerning to me to see those videos and that’s not what I want people to feel Minneapolis is like or about,” Cano said. “We probably could have been able to connect some of these robberies together at an earlier time if we had more support and officers for our investigations unit.”

Cano told Fox News the city is investing in and diversifying its force to better represent the community along with investing in juvenile crime prevention programs.

A veteran police officer in Tuscaloosa, Ala., was shot and killed Monday after a shootout with a suspect who authorities said ran into a home and opened fire.

The slain officer was identified as Dornell Cousette, 40. He leaves behind two children and was engaged. The suspect, who was not identified in reports, was “no longer a threat.” Reports said he was arrested and was taken to a nearby hospital.

“Hero’s come in many different forms,” Walt Maddox, the city’s mayor, said, according to AL.com. “Tonight one of our heroes has died in the line of duty.”

The scene unfolded after authorities received a tip about a sighting of a wanted suspect in the area, Fox 10 reported. Cousette reportedly arrived at the home and the suspect ran back inside, the report said.

MIT scientist resigns over Jeffrey Epstein comments he calls ‘misunderstandings and mischaracterizations’

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) computer scientist who said the alleged sex-abuse victims of an associate of deceased convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein were “entirely willing” has resigned.

Richard Stallman, a famed open-source advocate, announced his departure in an email published online Monday.

“I am resigning effective immediately from my position in CSAIL at MIT,” he wrote. “I am doing this due to pressure on MIT and me over a series of misunderstandings and mischaracterizations.”

PHOTOS SEEN IN JEFFREY EPSTEIN MANSION RAID APPARENTLY SHOWED FIDEL CASTRO, POPE JOHN PAUL II

Stallman had argued in a leaked email thread from last week that Marvin Minsky — an artificial-intelligence (AI) pioneer who died in 2016 and was accused of assaulting one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Giuffre — had not actually assaulted anyone.

He also argued over the definition of “sexual assault” and “rape” and whether the term applied to Minsky and Giuffre.

“The word ‘assaulting’ presumes that he applied force or violence, in some unspecified way, but the article itself says no such thing. Only that they had sex,” he wrote, referring to an article about Giuffre’s testimony against Minsky. “The most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him an entirely willing.”

JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S ECCENTRIC, EXPLICIT TASTE IN ART SEEN IN PALM BEACH MANSION RAID VIDEO

The thread was leaked to VICE by MIT alum Selam Jie Gano. He said Stallman was responding to a female student’s email about an MIT protest related to Epstein’s donations to the elite university.

The student pointed out that Giuffre allegedly was forced to have sex with Minsky in Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands. Stallman replied, “it is morally absurd to define ‘rape’ in a way that depends on minor details such as which country it was in or whether the victim was 18 years old or 17.”

The school has come under heavy scrutiny after reports the MIT Media Lab continued to accept donations from Epstein despite listing him as a “disqualified donor.” The gifts allegedly were marked anonymous in an effort to concealing their source, The New Yorker reported.

The magazine alleged Epstein was credited with at least $7.5 million in donations.

A father was arrested after his 11-year-old son was thrown overboard from a boat in northern California and was fatally struck by the vessel, police said on Monday.

Javier A. Burillo of Belvedere, Calif., which is about 40 minutes from San Francisco, was allegedly intoxicated at the time, Tiburon Police Chief Michael Cronin said during a news conference on Monday. The well-known developer was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter with a vessel, willful harm or injury to a child and operating a boat while under the influence, according to the Tiburon Police Department.

“It’s a traumatic event not only for the individuals, but for the community,” Cronin told reporters on Monday.

Police said Burillo’s 27-year-old son was also thrown overboard from the 33-foot craft in the San Francisco Bay near Angel Island.

Burillo’s older son was able to help his father recover the 11-year-old boy, and the vessel went to the Corinthian Yacht Harbor in Tiburon, where the boy was pronounced dead, KTVU-TV reported.

Burillo’s older son was transported to an area hospital with cuts on his leg. His current condition was not immediately known.

Property records show Burillo’s full name is Javier Burillo Azcarraga, a wealthy property developer known for fancy hotels and restaurants throughout Mexico and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in that country.

Burillo’s bail was set at $1 million.
