New Mexico man accused of sending nude photos of woman who dumped him

A New Mexico man has been accused of sending nude photos of a woman who dumped him to her friends and relatives, according to a report.

Anthony Sandy, 23, of Albuquerque, was jailed after being charged with extortion, stalking, voyeurism and unauthorized distribution of sensitive images, the Farmington Daily Times reported Saturday.

He wasn’t represented by a lawyer as of Friday, the paper reported.

The arrest affidavit says the woman detailed to Farmington police how, after the break-up, Sandy threatened to send nude photos of her to her friends and relatives if she did not respond to his phone and Facebook messages, according to the paper.

Court documents say he sent nude photos to nine of the woman’s friends and relatives without her consent or knowledge, the paper reported.

A man is facing a driving under the influence charge after striking a police officer while driving a scooter and then crashing into a parked car in downtown Denver on Saturday, according to officials.

The Denver Police Department said on Twitter the incident happened around 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of 21st and Market Streets near Coors Field.

The scooter operator struck a police officer who was directing traffic at the intersection before crashing into a parked vehicle.

Kurt Barnes, a Denver police spokesperson, told FOX31 that while some see scooters as a quick mode of transportation while out bar-hopping, he warned people can still get a DUI while using them under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

“Scooters are becoming more and more prevalent, so we are seeing more DUIs,” Barnes told KMGH-TV.

John Legend on Felicity Huffman prison sentence: ‘No one in our nation will benefit’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6086238739001_6086238510001-vs John Legend on Felicity Huffman prison sentence: 'No one in our nation will benefit' Jessica Sager fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/college-admissions-scandal fox-news/person/felicity-huffman fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox news fnc/entertainment fnc e985f286-a3e2-5433-a349-4edaf0b5c5a1 article

Singer and criminal justice reform activist John Legend spoke out about actress Felicity Huffman‘s 14-day prison sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal.

“I get why everyone gets mad when rich person X gets a short sentence and poor person of color Y gets a long one,” Legend tweeted Saturday. “The answer isn’t for X to get more; it’s for both of them to get less (or even none!!!) We should level down not up.”

“Americans have become desensitized to how much we lock people up. Prisons and jails are not the answer to every bad thing everyone does, but we’ve come to use them to address nearly every societal ill,” Legend added.

FELICITY HUFFMAN’S PRISON SENTENCE ‘MORE OF A BURDEN ON THE JAIL SYSTEM’ THAN ON THE ACTRESS: EXPERT

“It’s insane we locked a woman up for 5 years for sending her kid to the wrong school district. Literally everyone involved in that decision should be ashamed of themselves,” the Grammy winner continued. “It’s unconscionable that we locked a woman up for voting when, unbeknownst to her, she was ineligible. Her sentence shouldn’t be fewer years. It should be ZERO.”

Legend was referring to the case of Kelley Williams-Bolar, a single, black mother in Ohio who was convicted in 2011 of using a family member’s address to get her kids into better public schools. She was handed two concurrent five-year sentences, which were suspended to 10 days.

“And no one in our nation will benefit from the 14 days an actress will serve for cheating in college admissions,” he concluded. “We don’t need to lock people up for any of this stuff.”

FELICITY HUFFMAN’S 14 DAY PRISON SENTENCE IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCAM SPARKS OUTRAGE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

FELICITY HUFFMAN ON COLLEGE SCAM: ‘NO EXCUSES OR JUSTIFICATIONS’

On Friday, Huffman, 56, was sentenced to 14 days in prison after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT. She considered the same for her younger daughter but decided against it.

She must also perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SLAMS JUSTICE SYSTEM AMID REPORTS OF FELICITY HUFFMAN’S POTENTIAL PRISON SENTENCE

At the time of Huffman’s sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani told the Emmy winner, “I think this is the right sentence here. You can move forward and rebuild your life after this. Without this sentence, I think the community around you would ask why you got away with this.”

Before Friday’s sentencing, federal prosecutors had recommended a month of prison time, a $20,000 fine and 12 months of supervised release for the felony.

‘THE VIEW’ HOSTS BLAST FELICITY HUFFMAN FOR REQUESTING NO JAIL TIME IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

“She told you this crime resulted from the bewilderment of being a mom,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen told Judge Talwani. “With all due respect, welcome to parenthood. It’s terrifying and stressful. What parenthood does not do, it does not make you a felon. It doesn’t make you a cheat.”

COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL COMING TO TV

“This was a purposeful criminal act. The defendant knew it was wrong,” he added. “She even noted an increase [in payment] could trigger an investigation. She mulled it over. She participated in the scheme. She lied to move the test. She called the College Board to make sure the test had been shipped. Happy with the results, she paid Singer $15,000 and considered doing it again.  She sent the scores to colleges nationwide. But for her arrest, she would have succeeded.”

“This was not a blunder or mistake. This was intentional, ” the prosecutor continued. “She showed contempt for the law and should be punished for her actions. Similarly situated defendants should also go to prison for their crime.”

LORI LOUGHLIN KEEPING AN EYE ON FELICITY HUFFMAN CASE, FEARS BEING ‘PENALIZED FOR HER FAME’ IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

Huffman was the first of the 51 defendants charged in the sting, dubbed “Operation Varsity Blues” to be sentenced. The actress had previously pleaded for leniency, with her attorneys recommending a fine and probation as appropriate punishment.

In a three-page letter to Judge Talwani filed last week, Huffman wrote she has “a deep and abiding shame” for participating in the scam, saying she was trying to give her daughter, whom she says has a diagnosed learning disability and struggles with math, an opportunity to become an actress.

FELICITY HUFFMAN TALKS MOTHERHOOD AS EVA LONGORIA SAYS SHE COPED WITH COLLEGE SCANDAL ‘WITH GRACE’

“In my desperation to be a good mother, I talked myself into believing that all I was doing was giving my daughter a fair shot,” Huffman wrote. “I see the irony in that statement now because what I have done is the opposite of fair. I have broken the law, deceived the educational community, betrayed my daughter, and failed my family.”

Huffman’s attorney reportedly requested that the “Desperate Housewives” star spend her sentence at Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif., a minimum-security prison housing 1,235 inmates.

The inmates get to watch movies on weekdays at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m, play board games and partake in fitness activities.

Seattle light rail station shooting leaves 1 dead, 2 wounded; cops release video of suspect

Authorities in Seattle released video on Saturday of a suspect fleeing after a shooting at a downtown light rail station the day before left one man dead and two wounded.

The Seattle Police Department said the shooting happened around 9:20 p.m. at the Westlake Station on a northbound platform for the Link light rail. Officers arriving at the scene found three men with gunshot wounds, two of them with life-threatening injuries.

All three were transported to Harborview Medical Center, where one of the men died. One of the injured men is still listed in critical condition, while the third was discharged Saturday morning, Harborview spokeswoman Susan Gregg told Q13 News.

Witnesses told investigators that the suspect and at least two of the victims may have been in an altercation outside the station and that the shooting did not appear to be random, according to police.

Video posted Saturday afternoon on the department’s Twitter feed shows the suspect trying to conceal the gun near his waist as he runs up the stairs toward an exit at the light rail station.

The shooting caused roads throughout the area and the station to be shuttered as authorities investigated the shooting.

“We had to shut all of our doors. We didn’t know. We just knew there was an active shooter in the area,” Evee Jolly, who works a few blocks away at the popular Pike Place Market, told Q13 News.

“I take the light rail home every night. Had I been in the wrong place at the wrong time, like, that could have been any of us,” she added.

Another resident, Darran Bruce, told Q13 News the area where the altercation broke out has a reputation for being “a trouble spot” and more officers are needed in the area.

Seattle Police said they have focused resources in the area now for several months and were able to quickly respond to the situation once they were notified about the shooting. Bruce, however, said he worried if additional resources are moved somewhere else in the city.

“The moment the police presence goes, the element comes right back,” he said.

Seattle has seen the number of shootings rise this year, with 15 killed and 55 injured as of early September, according to the Seattle Times. In the same period last year, the city saw 9 killed and 45 injured, according to the newspaper.

Anyone with information about Friday’s shooting is asked to contact the Seattle Police Department tip line at (206) 233-5000.

Retired MLB star David Ortiz recounts being shot in Dominican Republic: ‘I want to find out who did this’

Westlake Legal Group MLB-David-Ortiz5 Retired MLB star David Ortiz recounts being shot in Dominican Republic: 'I want to find out who did this' fox-news/world/world-regions/dominican-republic fox-news/us/crime fox-news/sports/mlb/boston-red-sox fox-news/sports/mlb fox news fnc/sports fnc Danielle Wallace article 1c3aac26-11ff-59f9-91ad-a9ed4468efea

Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz gave his first English-language interview since a near-fatal shooting at a bar in his native Dominican Republic in June.

Ortiz, 43, sat down with the Boston Globe in Fenway Park last week, explaining he’s determined to find out who is responsible for the shooting that caused him to undergo several surgeries and left him bound to a hospital bed for nearly seven weeks.

The 20-year MLB star known as “Big Papi” made his first public appearance since the shooting last Monday when he threw out the opening pitch at Fenway.

DAVID ORTIZ THROWS OUT FIRST PITCH AT FENWAY PARK MONTHS AFTER SHOOTING

“I want to find out who did this,’’ Ortiz told the Boston Globe. “I’m not going to sit around and chill if there’s somebody out there who wants to kill me.’’

“I’m not going to sit around and chill if there’s somebody out there who wants to kill me.’’

— David Ortiz

“I don’t know why I was involved in something like this because I’m not the type of person who looks for trouble or causes trouble,” he told the newspaper. “All I worry about is trying to help people, about trying to do the right thing.”

Eleven people, all of whom Ortiz said he didn’t recognize, have been arrested in connection with the June 9 shooting at the Dial Bar in Santo Domingo, where the former pro-baseball player was shot at close range while his back was turned away from an identified gunman who fled the scene.

Ortiz said he hired former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis to investigate the case after Dominican officials released conflicting motives to explain why he was shot. Officials in the Carribean island nation now blame the shooting on a case of mistaken identity. Ortiz also told the Globe how he experienced moments in the hospital “feeling like I was going to die.”

“I had nightmares all the time about being in the desert, looking for water,” Ortiz told the paper. “I would wake up with my mouth dry and feeling like I’m going to die.”

“I would wake up with my mouth dry and feeling like I’m going to die.”

— David Ortiz

“I felt that if I didn’t die, then I would never be the same again,’’ he continued. “I went through hell with that.” Ortiz also tipped his hat to medical staff at Massachusetts General Hospital for reassuring him that he would survive.

The Red Sox had Ortiz airlifted from the Dominican Republic to Massachusetts General Hospital where he underwent several surgeries to address his wounded intestines and liver. He also underwent surgery in the Dominican Republic the day before he was transported to Boston.

He said he contracted a dangerous acute bacterial infection during his hospital stay in Boston and had to substitute food for Jello and ice chips, causing him to lose about 40 pounds. He was released on July 27 — nearly seven weeks after he was shot.

Dominican police now believe a suspected drug trafficker and fugitive named Victor Hugo Gomez Vasquez offered to pay $30,000 for the murder of his cousin David Fernández after he was feeding information to authorities. Fernández was sitting next to Ortiz at the nightclub at the time of the shooting. Authorities initially said a $7,800 bounty had been placed on Ortiz for unknown reasons, according to the New York Post.

Ortiz is to return to his job as a Fox Sports analyst for the upcoming MLB postseason. He started his career with the Minnesota Twins then spent 14 years with the Red Sox and is one of the most popular players in the team’s history. He was a key player on three World Series-winning teams in 2004, 2007 and 2013. A 10-time All-Star, Ortiz finished his big league career with 541 home runs and 1,768 RBIs.

House explosion in Pennsylvania linked to dad’s suicide on daughter’s wedding day: cops

[Editor’s note: This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).]

A Pennsylvania man apparently committed suicide on his daughter’s wedding day by blowing up his suburban Pittsburgh home, authorities say.

Neighbors told police they saw the homeowner standing in front of his residence in Edgewood shortly before an explosion went off inside the home, igniting a fire and eventually destroying the structure.

AT LEAST 22 PEOPLE INJURED AFTER THREE-STORY DECK COLLAPSE IN NEW JERSEY

“The house just collapsed in one large movement with a lot of sound to it,” neighbor Dann Laudermilch, 35, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “By that time it was fully in flames. It went up in flames remarkably fast. I thought it would take longer to burn, but it was like a minute and a half — it was crazy.”

“The house just collapsed in one large movement with a lot of sound to it. By that time it was fully in flames. It went up in flames remarkably fast.”

— Dann Laudermilch, neighbor

Police and fire units responded around 2:30 p.m. to find the man’s vehicle and cell phone out front. Hours passed before a crew using heavy machinery found the man’s body around 8 p.m., Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV reported.

The death was ruled a suicide and the man’s name was not released. Family members were away from the home at the time, attending the daughter’s wedding, officials said. It remained unclear who lived in the home with the man. No additional deaths were reported.

In addition to Laudermilch, other neighbors described feeling their own homes shake during the explosion, causing them to go outside to find out what happened.

“We came outside to see what was going on, and the house was in flames — still standing — but in flames,” neighbor Donna Antolovich told the Post-Gazette. “Three to five minutes before the house blew up, the owner was standing in front of it. After that, nobody could find him.”

The cause of the explosion remained under investigation, but Edgewood police Chief Robert Payne said it appeared the man “may have been able to disconnect the gas line itself in the basement of the house and of course it wouldn’t take much but a spark to explode the house after that.”

Police said they had been to the home before for domestic issues relating to mental illness. A house next door that was damaged by the fire had recently been sold, and officials say a family had been planning to move in soon.

A suspected gunman is at large after a shooting that followed a dispute between parents at a pee-wee football game in Fort Worth, Texas, police said Saturday.

Fox 4 News reported that a woman was hit in the leg and a girl was grazed in the back. Both were hospitalized and police said their injuries were not life-threatening.

Investigators believe the son of one of the parents involved in the argument came to the game armed with a handgun and opened fire.

A woman working at the concessions stand described the scene to Fox 4 News.

“It’s just unbelievable, because it’s like, you hear people say that all the time, but you don’t see nothing happen, and this time, it actually happened,” the concession worker said. “I ran outside, and was on the side of that truck, and just said, ‘Come in. Get in.’ Then one lady said she tried to get out of her chair, she said, ‘I’ve been hit,’ and fell to the ground.”

Florida man who dragged shark in viral video sentenced to 10 days in jail

A Florida man who recorded a shark being dragged to its death behind a high-speed boat accepted a plea deal on Thursday and was sentenced to 10 days in jail.

Robert Lee “Bo” Benac III was the third man to face charges stemming from the June 2017 incident where a shark was seen on video being dragged by a rope from a 22-foot boat near Egmont Key. The men could be heard laughing at the shark on the recording, which was posted to social media and generated widespread outrage.

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission led the prosecution against Benac and Michael Wenzel, 23, who took a similar plea deal in February, according to the Bradenton Herald.

In addition to the 10-day jail sentence, Benac was given 11 months of probation, ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and perform 250 hours of community service, 125 of which must be spent at an animal shelter, the outlet reported. He also lost his fishing license for three years.

Benac pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges of aggravated cruelty to animals and violation of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rules.

Benac, Wenzel and Spencer Heintz, 35, were arrested in December 2017, but the charges against Heintz were eventually dropped, according to the Bradenton Herald.

Benac and Wenzel weren’t as lucky.

Following the incident, other videos began to surface involving the men. One showed Wenzel shooting a shark with a .38-caliber revolver and another showed the men pouring alcohol down the throats of fish that were alive, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

“We were confident in what we could do and what we could show, but at the end of the day you can never be 100 percent confident in the jury system …,” Benac’s lawyer, Justin Petredis said. “That was a worry, that the anger and emotions of the jury would outweigh where we were hoping common sense would take over.”

Petredis said Benac took the plea deal because of how widely the videos had been shared online, the outlet reported. Benac also received credit for a day spent in the county jail.

Ex-NFL player accused of trashing his 2 businesses to make it look like a hate crime

A former NFL player has been accused of trashing a restaurant and an ice cream shop he owned near Atlanta to make it look like a hate crime.

Gwinett County police say they found the n-word, “monkey,” “MAGA” and swastikas scrawled on the walls and booths of the two businesses, Create & Bake Pizza and Coughman’s Creamery in Lawrenceville.

Edawn Coughman, 31, of Buford, was arrested Thursday on charges of false reporting a burglary, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate before being bonded out of jail, police said.

Coughman was signed out of Shaw University to the Seattle Seahawks practice squad in 2012 and then spent parts of the next season with the Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills, the Gwinnett Daily Post reported Friday. He was claimed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014 and then signed by the Washington Redskins later that season.

Police said in a news release that an officer responded Wednesday night to a 911 call reporting a man damaging the restaurant and the ice cream shop and getting away in a truck without a license plate. The restaurant’s rear door showed signs of a break-in.

When officers pulled over the truck they found Coughman behind the wheel and learned he was the owner of the damaged businesses, according to the news release. In the truck were several TVs that appeared to have been ripped from a wall.

The news release quoted Coughman as informing the officers that he had noticed the damage earlier in the day and called his insurance company to report it but not 911.

“It’s possible he was trying to stage this as a hate crime,” Cpl. Michele Pihera told the Daily Post. “We don’t know if he was trying to get attention for this. What we do know is, if that witness had not called us and if those officers had not responded as quickly as they did, we would probably be sitting here talking about a completely different crime in which Mr. Coughman would be trying to say he’s a victim.”
