A woman who was among the top five contestants in the Miss Hooters Tennessee competition was arrested for trashing her boyfriend’s house, a report said Monday.

Police responded to the man’s address on May 31 where he told them that Rogers flew into a rage after the breakup, the outlet said.

The Hooters contestant had allegedly pounded on his front door before kicking it open and attacking him.

The boyfriend then said he picked her up and carried her outside.

Woman’s remains found in South Carolina creek, week after dog digs up human bones: police

South Carolina authorities on Monday found the remains of a missing woman, one week after a dog dug up human bones in a homeowner’s yard, police said.

A search team found a head and upper torso “in a state of advanced decomposition,” Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis said in a news release.

Monday’s findings are “presumed to be associated with” with a right pelvic bone and femur that a dog dug up in Seneca, S.C. last week, Addis said. The bones were studied by forensics experts who determined that they belonged to a woman, aged 25 to 45, who had died within the last few months, The State reported.

Missing Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos’ family, friends, deny her case is a ‘Gone Girl’ disappearance

Family and friends of missing Connecticut mother of five Jennifer Dulos on Monday countered a claim from her estranged husband’s lawyer that the author was “deeply troubled,” and said any links to a book she wrote nearly two decades ago were way off base.

In a Fox News interview on Friday, lawyer Norm Pattis said his client, Fotis Dulos, was “emotional, tired, distraught” over the “exhausting ordeal” and disappearance of his estranged wife.

He said Jennifer Dulos “had a troubled past,” describing her as a writer who “wrote a manuscript similar to ‘Gone Girl,'” a thriller that later became a hit Hollywood movie.

In response, Carrie Luft, a spokeswoman for family and friends of the missing mother, said: “This is not fiction or a movie. This is real life, as experienced every single day by Jennifer’s five young children, her family, and her friends.”

She continued, “We are heartbroken. Jennifer is not here to protect her children, and these false and irresponsible allegations hurt the children now and into the future.”

Luft added, “Evidence shows that Jennifer was the victim of a violent attack in her New Canaan home.”

EXCLUSIVE: LAWYER NORM PATTIS SAYS CLIENT FOTIS DULOS’ ESTRANGED AND MISSING WIFE HAS A ‘TROUBLED PAST’

Jennifer Dulos was reported missing on May 24 and was last seen driving a black Chevy Suburban as she dropped off her children at their private school in New Canaan.

The couple was in the midst of a bitter custody battle over the five children. Pattis said Jennifer Dulos “seemed intent” on moving the children to New York, where her mother lived, against the joint custody agreement.

“She was not settled happily in New Cannan, intending to live there happily ever after,” Pattis said.

However, court documents revealed Jennifer Dulos was “terrified for [her] family’s safety.” She alleged that her husband, a custom home builder who was born and raised in Greece but went to college at Brown University in the U.S., “has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior.”

Luft said Pattis’ suggestion that Jennifer Dulos’ disappearance was tied to a book she wrote was nonsensical.

“I read Jennifer’s novel in installments as she was completing the manuscript,” Luft said. “She finished the draft around 2002. (This was before she was dating Fotis Dulos.) Her book has nothing to do with Gone Girl (published in 2012).”

MISSING CONNECTICUT MOM JENNIFER DULOS’ ESTRANGED HUSBAND WANTS SEIZED PROPERTY BACK AMID STALL IN CASE

She added, “Jennifer’s novel is not a mystery. It’s a character-driven story that follows a young woman through relationships and self-discovery over a period of years. Like all of Jennifer’s writing, it expresses a deep longing for human connection and the need to be accepted as one’s true self.”

Fotis Dulos’ DNA was found mixed with his wife’s blood on a kitchen faucet in the New Canaan home where she lived with her children after the couple split, according to State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo. Police said the house also had evidence of blood spatter and cleanup attempts, according to the arrest report.

Pattis said he remained skeptical of the state’s evidence against his client, which also included surveillance footage of a man resembling Fotis Dulos and Troconis making 30 stops in a vehicle and dumping clothing, sponges and other items, which investigators said have tested positive for the missing mom’s DNA at some of those stops.

Pattis said he had not seen the state’s security footage but said he had “reasons to doubt that it’s reliable.”

Video footage of Jussie Smollett with rope around his neck released by Chicago Police

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6051791261001_6051791178001-vs Video footage of Jussie Smollett with rope around his neck released by Chicago Police Mariah Haas fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/illinois fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/person/jussie-smollett fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 03192481-0972-5f46-801b-2ade5cc74aa6

Chicago police released hundreds of files and nearly 70 hours of video footage on Monday from the investigation into Jussie Smollett‘s claim back in January that he was attacked by two men — a claim that police later characterized as a hoax.

In one of the videos, police body-cam footage showed Smollett — with his face blurred — wearing a white rope that he told detectives his attackers looped around his neck. When one of the officers asked Smollett if he wanted to take the rope off of his neck, the 37-year-old actor did while stating: “Yeah. I do. I just wanted you all to see it.”

“There’s bleach on me, they poured bleach on me,” Smollett added.

JUSSIE SMOLLETT’S ALLEGED HATE CRIME ATTACK: A TIMELINE OF EVENTS

Investigators went on to tell him that they were recording the visit, to which he said: “I don’t want to be filmed.” The officers then turned off their body cams.

Many files contained surveillance-camera footage that police collected as they launched what they initially called a hate-crime investigation. They also included footage from what appeared to be the route police said the two brothers who participated in the alleged staged January attack took to and from the scene.

The release marked the latest chapter in a story that began with Smollett’s allegations that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. He eventually was arrested on charges that he lied to police, but prosecutors later dismissed the charges.

Last Friday, a judge decided to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the decision by Cook County prosecutors to dismiss all charges against Smollett, in a ruling that left open the possibility that the actor could be charged again. Cook County Judge Michael Toomin suggested that the county’s state’s attorney, Kim Foxx, mishandled the Smollett case by appointing a top aide to oversee it after she recused herself.

Foxx took issue with the ruling and explained that she “followed the advice of counsel and my then Chief Ethics Officer” to recuse herself.

North Carolina man charged with murdering Missouri officer shot while responding to call: police

A 26-year-old man from North Carolina has been charged with murder for shooting and killing a Missouri officer who was responding to a call in North St. Louis County on Sunday, police said Monday.

Bonette Kymbrelle Meeks, 26, has also been charged with armed criminal action, unlawful possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.

Officer Michael Langsdorf, who had been with the North County Police Cooperative for three months, was responding to a bad check report at a food market on Sunday when Meeks shot and killed him, police said.

Police added that Meeks was trying to cash the bad check.

MISSOURI OFFICER SHOT WHILE RESPONDING TO CALL HAS DIED, SUSPECT IN CUSTODY: POLICE

North County Police Cooperative Major Ron Martin, who introduced himself as a friend of Langsdorf’s while holding back tears, told reporters on Monday he has known the officer for 20 years.

“Mr. Meeks was successful in executing a cop yesterday and a good one,” Martin said.

The North County Police Cooperative’s chief, John Buchanan, told reporters that Langsdorf responded to Clay Wellston Food Market Restaurant, about a 15-minute drive from St. Louis, around 4:30 pm on Sunday and about five minutes later, a call came in for “one of our officers down.” Langsdorf, 40, was pronounced dead at a St. Louis hospital about 40 minutes later.

Martin told reporters on Monday that when Langsdorf confronted Meeks inside the market “a struggle ensued between both of them,” adding that “the entire incident was captured on surveillance video.”

Martin told reporters he watched the surveillance video and described what he saw.

“At some point Officer Langsdorf was on top of Meeks. I don’t know how looking at the video Mr. Meeks was able to do it, but he was able to pull a gun from his waistband, strike Officer Langsdorf on the side of the head a few times which caused Officer Langsdorf to be in kind of a daze and lose his hold on Mr. Meeks,” Martin said.

“Mr. Meeks was able to stand up and stand over Officer Langsdorf as Officer Langsdorf was on the ground, face down, stomach down,” Martin continued.

“Mr. Meeks had the gun in his hand, pointed the gun to the back, pointed the gun to the back of Officer Langsdorf’s head and fired one shot,” Martin said as he got emotional and his fellow officers consoled him.

Martin said after Meeks shot Langsdorf in the neck, Meeks fled on foot “gun in hand” and assisting officers caught him shortly thereafter.

Martin said that when Meeks was arrested, “he was armed with the pistol he used to murder Officer Langsdorf.”

Officer Langsdorf had 17 years of prior police experience, according to a post on the North County Police Cooperative’s Facebook page.

“Michael was an outstanding officer. In his short time with our department, he has taken our young officers under his wing and was mentoring and guiding them,” Buchanan told reporters on Monday.

He added, “When we first met he said to me several times, ‘All I wanted to be was a police officer and do police work. It was really all I knew how to do.’ He told me that numerous times.”

“He [Langsdorf] had a lot of police experience. You never would have thought that this type of police officer would have been put in that position but it happened,” Martin told reporters on Monday. “There’s no such things as a routine call. This is the dangers that our police officers in this community face every day.”

He added, “I can tell you that Mike was a pretty big part of us even though he was here a short time.”

Martin told reporters that officers interviewed Meeks and “ultimately he confessed to murdering Officer Langsdorf.”

“Meeks remains in custody with NO BOND ALLOWED,” according to a post on the North County Police Cooperative’s Facebook page.

Police said Meeks has an extensive criminal history and is a multi-convicted felon in North Carolina.

According to criminal records obtained by Fox News, Meek’s criminal history includes numerous convictions for the possession or sale of narcotics.

“We never had an officer involved shooting in the four years we’ve been here and we’ve never had a police officer killed in the line of duty,” Martin said.

“It’s tough to get a grasp on it all,” he added.

Langsdorf left behind two children, a fiancé and his parents.

“The North County Police Cooperative asks that you continue to keep the family, friends and co-workers of PO [Police Ofiicer] Langsdorf in your thoughts and prayers,” the North County Police Cooperative’s Facebook post read.

Buchanan told reporters Monday that The North County Police Cooperative will offer support to Langsdorf’s family.

“Our department is going to wrap our arms around you and support you through this difficult time,” Buchanan said, addressing Langsdorf’s family.

California man jumps into river to elude homeowner, police: cops

Officials say a California man jumped into a river to elude a homeowner and police following a report of a burglary.

The Sacramento Bee reports that 40-year-old Michael Hernandez leapt into the St. John’s River in Visalia following pursuit by a homeowner Saturday.

Hernandez was arrested on suspicion of burglary, resisting arrest, methamphetamine possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say Hernandez jumped back into the river but the swift current forced him to shore, where he struggled with officers and a police dog in knee-deep water.
