Elephant, named Usama bin Laden, dies in captivity after killing 5 villagers in India, officials say

An elephant named Usama bin Laden, after the 9/11 mastermind and former leader of Al Qaeda, has died in captivity, days after he was captured for killing five villagers in India last month, officials said.

The male elephant was tracked since October for apparently killing five people in the Indian state of Assam. On Monday, forestry officials found him and tranquilized him, taking him into captivity.

The mammal, nicknamed “Laden,” was apparently supposed to be moved to Assam’s Orang National Park, but died on Sunday before that happened, Agence France-Presse reported.

“The animal was behaving as normal,” a park ranger told AFP. “It was, however, kept with its legs tied so that it couldn’t escape.”

ENDANGERED ELEPHANT SHOT 70 TIMES, TUSKS HACKED OFF, OFFICIALS SAY

A cause of death wasn’t immediately clear. The elephant was believed to be around 35 years old, an age said to be too old for captivity.

Forestry officials reportedly said they planned to tame “Laden” using a controversial training method some animal activists equate to torture after it killed five villagers.

An estimated 2,300 people have been killed by elephants in the last five years in India, AFP reported, citing recently-released government figures.

Elephants often migrate to Goalpara, where the attack occurred, according to officials, who have said that at least 700 elephants have been killed since 2011, partly because of their shrinking habitats. Locals reportedly shoot or poison elephants, while others have died on electric fences or on railroads.

Trump criticism got Colorado talk radio host fired while on air, he says

A radio host claims he was fired Saturday from his Colorado talk show — while he was on air — for criticizing President Trump.

Craig Silverman, host of a namesake show on Denver’s conservative 710 KNUS radio station, says he was talking about Roy Cohn, a lawyer who represented Trump personally in the 1970s, when suddenly his broadcast was interrupted by network news.

FOX NEWS POLL: 49 PERCENT FAVOR IMPEACHING TRUMP

Soon after, Silverman told The Denver Post, the station’s program director walked through the door and told him, “You’re done.” The host confirmed his firing online, tweeting in response to a state representative who said his firing was a “sad day for Colorado and the First Amendment.”

“I cannot and will not toe strict Trump party line. I call things as I see them,” he said. “I see corruption and blatant dishonesty by President [sic] and his cronies. I also see bullying/smearing of American heroes w/courage to take oath and tell truth. Their bravery inspires me.”

FORMER AMBASSADOR TO UKRAINE MARIE YOVANOVITCH TESTIFIES SHE FELT ‘THREATENED’ BY TRUMP

The day before his termination, Silverman wrote a supportive Facebook post about Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine who testified last week on the second day of Trump’s public impeachment hearings.

“Yovanovitch is an American hero. I have seen countless witnesses testify and she was one of the all-time finest. Her poise, courage and credibility inspire me,” Silverman wrote, according to KDVR.

Silverman added the response to his firing has been about “95% nice,” and posted a message from a former Republican attorney general in Colorado who thanked him “for speaking truth to power” about “Trump’s destructive behavior.”

A former chief deputy district attorney in Denver, Silverman was on air Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon since 2014. A search of his program on the 710 KNUS website redirects to a 404 Error page.

Las Vegas police K-9 stabbed repeatedly by suspect ‘doing extremely well’ in recovery

A Las Vegas police K-9 was recovering Tuesday after being stabbed by a man who refused to come down from a roof, officials said.

“Hunter,” a Belgian Malinois, was stabbed multiple times on Saturday by 27-year-old Joseph Arquilla, investigators said. Arquilla had climbed onto the roof of a business around midnight and wouldn’t come down.

Police officers responded to the scene and once Arquilla came down around 4:45 a.m., he allegedly stabbed Hunter repeatedly — until his knife blade broke, KVVU-TV reported.

The K-9 was injured on the left side of his neck, just below his ear, according to photos posted online by the police department. Authorities said he “was lucky that the attacker’s blade broke at some point during the assault when it struck the dog’s collar, making it harder for the wounds to penetrate deeply.”

Florida man dressed as Trump at Halloween fair allegedly punched in face by 14-year-old

A Florida teen showed her apparent disdain for President Trump when she allegedly punched a man who was dressed up as the commander in chief at a Halloween fair over the weekend, according to authorities.

The 14-year-old girl walked up to the man, who was standing on line with his family Saturday night for a haunted house at the Collier County Fairgrounds, and punched him in the jaw, officials said.

Florida interstate scattered with mail after tractor-trailer crashes into another tractor-trailer

Envelopes were scattered across Interstate 75 in Florida on Monday after a tractor-trailer full of mail crashed into another tractor-trailer.

Photos from the scene in Hillsborough County show the mail strewn across the southbound portion of the highway, where Florida Highway Patrol said the accident occurred around 7:15 a.m.

Investigators said a semi-truck, transporting water and produce, was being serviced in the southbound shoulder for two flat tires when the driver of a mail truck, a 58-year-old from Charlotte, N.C., crashed into it.

The mail carrier swerved onto the shoulder and slammed into the stopped tractor-trailer, the highway patrol said in a press release. The driver was hospitalized with serious injuries. The 25-year-old driver of the semi that was hit was not injured, officials said.

Tennessee man killed while trying to save pet dog from severe storm

A Tennessee man died Saturday after he was hit by a falling tree during a severe storm as he reportedly tried to save his dog.

Ray Wood, 63, of Adamsville, ran outside his home, roughly 105 miles east of Memphis, “to retrieve a family pet when a tree fell on him,” his family said. Wood died of his injuries.

The man was said to be a “beloved member of the community,” the Tennessee River Valley News reported. Wood’s daughter also described him online as “a man of God … [whose] soul went to Heaven.”

The 63-year-old used to serve as “band dad and pit crew leader” of the Adamsville Junior/Senior High School, according to a Facebook post from the group. The band said Wood “was the nicest, most generous man.”

“Our hearts are broken over his loss and for his family,” the post continued. “He will be so deeply missed by us and the community for which he had a heart of serving.”

The small Tennessee town suffered major damage from the storms, which brought severe winds through the area over the weekend, left schools closed Monday and Tuesday, and pushed McNairy County Mayor Larry Smith to declare a state of emergency on Saturday.

Florida man jumps off surfboard, lands on shark at ‘shark bite capital of the world’

A man who was surfing at New Smyrna Beach in Florida on Sunday literally jumped the shark when he sprung from his board — onto one of the fearsome fish, according to beach officials.

The unidentified 27-year-old told authorities he was surfing when he jumped into the water, landing on the shark near the beach, dubbed by some to be the “shark bite capital of the world.”

FLORIDA SURFER ATTACKED BY SHARK OPTS FOR BAR INSTEAD OF HOSPITAL, FRIEND SAYS

He received minor cuts during the incident, which happened around 1 p.m. at the beach in Volusia County, and was treated at the scene, WOFL reported. The surfer reportedly drove home to Orlando, more than an hour drive away, after the close encounter.

New Smyrna Beach in Volusia County, Florida, a popular surfing beach, is often said to be the “shark bite capital of the world.” (Google)

Surfers and beachgoers are reported to have come in contact with sharks often at New Smyrna Beach. In early August, two people were bit by sharks within minutes of each other at the popular beach. Neither bite was life-threatening.

In July, an 18-year-old was bitten on the foot while paddling on her surfboard off the beach, and in April, a 19-year-old was bitten by a shark in the same area.

Volusia County has been a longtime hotspot for shark bites, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported in April. The county has led the world in recorded bites over the past several years, hitting an all-time high of 15 bites in 2016. It retained the world’s top spot with nine recorded bites in 2017 and again in 2018 with four bites.

Of the 81 bites recorded since 2009, surfers accounted for 52 of the victims, data collected by the paper shows.

Experts have said that New Smyrna Beach’s reputation as one of the most popular surf spots on the East Coast is a factor in the county’s chart-topping numbers.

An Iowa woman died on Saturday from an explosion in what appears to be a gender-reveal party gone wrong, officials said.

The victim, only identified as a 56-year-old woman, was at the party in Knoxville when authorities were called about a woman who was severely injured in an explosion.

COUPLE’S GENDER-REVEAL IDEA BACKFIRES WHEN BALLOON FLIES AWAY

Once investigators arrived at the scene, roughly 40 miles southeast of Des Moines, the woman was pronounced dead, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said.

It was determined the woman died after the gender reveal caused an explosion, the Des Moines Register reported. Debris from the explosion flew through the air, reportedly hitting the victim and severely wounding her.

Officials did not release further information about the incident. However, gender-reveal parties often make headlines for their disastrous outcomes.

Another gender-reveal party that resulted in an explosion was in April 2017, when a U.S. Border Patrol agent shot a rifle of the highly explosive substance Tannerite near Green Valley, Ariz., sparking the Sawmill Fire that caused more than $8 million worth of damage.

Off-duty Texas cop shoots son after mistaking him for intruder, police say

An off-duty Texas police officer shot his own son on Saturday night after he mistook him for an intruder, authorities said.

The “long-term veteran” officer of the Dallas Police Department arrived at his home in DeSoto on Saturday around 6 p.m. and thought a trespasser was inside.

The “intruder” was his adult son, according to Pete Schulte, a spokesperson for DeSoto police. The police officer called 911 and identified himself as an off-duty Dallas cop.

MEMPHIS COP ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTED WOMAN WHO TRIED TO EAT HOT DOG AFTER HE TOLD HER NOT TO 

Investigators arrived to find the son, identified as in his 20s, as”lightly struck by a bullet in his arm.” The officer told authorities he mistook his son for an intruder, Schulte said.

It was a mistake. He thought that there might have been an intruder in the house. He didn’t know who was supposed to be there and so forth,” Schulte said. “It was a startling situation, it was an accident.”

The spokesman said the shooting happened in the garage area of the property. He said the officer got home and noticed “the house was not in the state that he had left it” — the garage door was open, and “some doors were locked that weren’t locked” when he left earlier in the day.

“He thought that maybe something had happened inside and, of course, we did ask the question, ‘Why didn’t you call us, the DeSoto Police Department?’ and like most people say is like, ‘I just wanted to know what was going on before I wasted a call to 911,'” Schulte said the off-duty officer told police.

Authorities, the spokesperson said, want people to know “that if you come home and something doesn’t feel right, [it] doesn’t bother us at all, go ahead and call 911, so we can come out and check it out .”

Schulte said the off-duty officer’s version of events is consistent with evidence at his home, and that no charges have been filed at this time.

Neither the father nor son were identified.

Ohio mom who says she sold meth to put kid through college is sentenced

In a plot straight out of an acclaimed TV drama — but with an ending too sobering for the small screen — an Ohio mother-of-five who said she sold crystal meth to send her child to college was sentenced to 11 years in prison Monday.

Janet Gartner, 41, and her boyfriend, Nicholas Bair, 40, were running a drug operation that allowed them to sell meth throughout Licking County, officials said. But her attorney argued the mother never did the drugs herself — only sold them — and she did it for her child.

“She only wanted to sell enough to buy a farm and put one of her children through college,” attorney Nicole Churchill said. “I don’t believe anyone wakes up and goes, ‘You know, I want to sell meth.'”

NEW YORK BROTHERS SAVED METH EQUIPMENT FROM FIRE BUT LEFT GRANDMA TO DIE, PROSECUTORS SAY

Gartner and Bair were running the operation in Licking County when the couple caught the eye of the Central Ohio Drug Enforcement Task Force, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported. Investigators engaged in two controlled buys from the couple, and the pair were taken into custody on April 15.

The task force later searched their farmhouse in Kimbolton, roughly 90 miles east of Columbus, and “seized more than $160,000 in cash, at least five pounds of methamphetamine, 50 pounds of marijuana, hundreds of THC vape pens, several ounces of cocaine, psilocybin mushrooms, two vehicles, four ATV’s and three firearms.”

Gartner’s attorney described her as a good, hard-working mother who wanted to be able to provide for her children, Y-City News reported. She has five children and worked as a housekeeper.

“I would consider Janet a friend, more than a client,” Churchill said in court. “I’ve visited with her more than I probably have any other client in my seven-year career. She was in a severe domestic violence relationship that she finally got herself out of a few years ago. She met someone who was outstanding to her and her family.”

Churchill said the couple planned to save money to buy property and send a child to school, and then would stop their alleged drug trafficking efforts.

“They would have had something they’d never had before,” the attorney said. “I believe her when she says when it was over, it would be over.”

Judge Mark Fleegle sentenced Gartner to 11 years in prison on Monday and also ordered her to pay a $10,000 fine. He said Gartner’s actions destroyed people’s lives.

“That can never be rationalized in my mind,” said Fleegle.

Bair is scheduled to enter a plea deal on drug charges in November.
