Florida inmate caught on camera punching deputy in the face multiple times, faces further charges

A Florida inmate whose brutal assault on a deputy inside a jail on Tuesday was caught on camera will face further charges, and a sheriff vowed the “violent” man would be “prosecuted to the fullest extent.”

Michler Gabriel, 38, was being escorted by a detention deputy at the Orient Road Jail in Tampa at around 11:15 a.m. when he refused to back away from a jail pod door as it was being opened, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.

The video, released by the sheriff’s office on Wednesday, shows the deputy trying to get Gabriel to step back from the door. As he points to where Gabriel should stand, the inmate punches the deputy in the face multiple times, knocking the deputy against a wall.

A second deputy is seen bolting through the door and helping the first deputy restrain Gabriel. Several other deputies arrived at the scene as Gabriel was restrained and taken away.

The injured deputy suffered bruising, swelling and lacerations, and was treated at Tampa General Hospital, officials told FOX13 Tampa.

Sheriff Chad Chronister highlighted the incident as one of the many everyday dangers deputies face to protect the public.

“This is a prime example of the dangerous environment deputies willingly go into every day in order to keep violent people like Michler Gabriel off of our streets,” he said in a statement.

“I will not tolerate anyone who would have such a lack of respect for another human being, especially for someone who selflessly serves the citizens of Hillsborough County,” Chronister continued. “While I am thankful that the deputy involved was not seriously hurt, we will make sure that Gabriel is prosecuted to the fullest extent for his actions.”

Chicago man dies nearly decade after suffering wounds in shooting; coroner rules death homicide

A Chicago man’s death has been ruled a homicide after he died last week of complications from multiple gunshot wounds he suffered in a shooting nearly a decade ago, officials said.

Marco Rainge, 41, was shot multiple times around 10 a.m. in October 2010, in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood, local newspapers reported, citing the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

CHICAGO COPS REEXAMINE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF EYE DOCTOR’S FIRST WIFE AFTER HE IS CHARGED WITH MURDERING GIRLFRIEND

Police records said no arrests were ever made in the shooting, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Rainge was in critical condition following the shooting, suffering gunshot wounds to his arm, chest and hip, but had been uncooperative with investigators on the case, ABC News reported.

He died Jan. 14 due to complications from those injuries, the medical examiner’s office said following an autopsy conducted Sunday. Police reclassified the shooting case as a homicide on Monday, the outlet reported.

CHICAGO POLICE ANNOUNCE ARREST AFTER 13 SHOT AT MEMORIAL FOR SLAIN PERSON

It is not uncommon to rule such deaths a homicide, according to health officials.

Dr. Reinhard Motte, a now-retired assistant medical examiner for Palm Beach County, Fla., told health news website Stat in 2017 that he sees one or two such cases a year.

Motte and forensic supervisor Richard Long told the outlet that forensic investigators must connect the dots from a gunshot wound to how the person died.

According to Motte and Long, the death of a 77-year-old paraplegic man who died of sepsis was ruled a homicide after investigators learned his paraplegia, which left him susceptible to the infection, stemmed from a gunshot wound decades earlier.

As of Monday, police had made no arrests or named any suspects in the Rainge case, according to reports.

Florida man attempts to hide underwater from cops, gets arrested after coming up for air, police say

A Florida man attempted a “not so great escape” last week when he tried hiding from deputies underwater in a pond – an “action movie” stunt that officials easily foiled when he came up for air, authorities said.

Daniel Christopher Booth, 36, had warrants out for his arrest in Baker County for selling methamphetamine, the Suwanee County Sheriff’s Office wrote Wednesday on Facebook.

When a deputy attempted to arrest Booth at his job at a solar power plant, the sheriff’s office said, the 36-year-old ran away and dove into a pond.

“Now we can only assume that Mr. Booth has seen one too many action movies and thought he could hide from the K9 teams, from Suwannee CI and Mayo CI by hiding under the water in a pond,” the post read.

He faced additional charges for the ill-planned escape attempt.

Social media users commented on the sheriff’s post, with several pointing out the fatal flaw in Booth’s plan.

“The good action movies show that you need to hollow out a reed to breathe through,” one user wrote.

Another said: “Clearly he forgot to grab a bamboo shoot to breathe through while he waited. He needs to watch more cartoons.”

Paraguay investigates prison escape of at least 75 ‘highly dangerous’ inmates through tunnel

Officials in Paraguay were investigating the mass escape of at least 75 “highly dangerous” inmates, including members of Brazil’s most infamous gang, from a prison on Sunday through a tunnel they dug, authorities said.

The tunnel and as many as 200 bags of earth stashed in cells were discovered at the city jail in Pedro Juan Caballero near the border with Brazil, police and government officials said.

The operation was “like we see in the movies, complete with internal lighting,” police spokeswoman Elena Andrada said, according to AFP.

Government officials said they suspect prison officials were aware of the operation, firing the prison’s director and six other officials following the escape, Reuters reported.

“It’s not possible that nobody saw anything in all this time,” Justice Minister Cecilia Pérez told the Telefuturo station. “This isn’t the work of one day or one night.”

INMATE CARVES WAY OUT OF JAIL AND IS ON THE RUN, TEXAS POLICE SAY

Interior Minister Euclides Acevedo said in a statement that the tunnel itself may have been a ruse to cover complicity by prison officials and that many of the inmates may have been allowed to walk out of the prison’s main gate.

The majority of the escapees belong to the First Capital Command based in Brazil, Acevedo said. The gang was founded in the 1990s inside a Sao Paulo prison and it has extended its influence throughout the country.

Acevedo said national police had been mobilized to hunt for the escapees, believing them to still be in Paraguay.

“In that area, there are many woods and they know the territory … these are highly dangerous people,” Paraguayan Attorney General Sandra Quinonez told radio station Monumental, according to Reuters.

In Brazil, the government increased security along its border to help Paraguay capture any escapees trying to cross into the country, Justice Minister Sergio Moro said.

“If they enter Brazil again, they will only get a one-way ticket to federal prison,” he tweeted.

Denver police officer accused of sexually assaulting woman he met during investigation

A Denver police officer has been arrested after a woman he met during an investigation last month accused him of sexual assault, authorities said Saturday.

Johnny Leon-Alvarez, 29, was booked at the Denver Detention Center in the investigation of a sexual assault reported early Friday and was suspended without pay, the Denver Police Department said in a statement. He has been a Denver police officer since 2018.

An arrest affidavit said Leon-Alvarez first met the 27-year-old victim last month when he and other officers responded to a domestic call at her home, FOX31 Denver reported. The woman told police she called “regarding an argument she had with her significant other.”

Leon-Alvarez kept in touch with the woman following the call, according to local media that obtained the affidavit.

“One of the officers who responded began texting her afterward to check on her,” the Denver Post reported, citing the affidavit. “Over time the (texts) became flirty, until the previous evening (Thursday) when they arranged to go on a date.”

The woman said in her statement that they had a “couple of shots and a couple of beers” before Leon-Alvarez drove her home just after midnight on Friday. She said she does not remember how Leon-Alvarez got into her house, where she told him “no” and tried to push him off of her.

The roommate corroborated the woman’s report, saying she heard the woman say “no” and “please stop” several times, according to the affidavit.

Utah snowmobiler, 18, dies after avalanche buries him on trip with dad

A teen in Utah died Saturday after being buried under an avalanche for over an hour while snowmobiling with his father, who confessed “my strength availed nothing” in the race to save his son.

Chase Adams, 18, and his father, Ben, were snowmobiling in Farmington Canyon, located about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City, when they were caught in an avalanche around 1:30 p.m., the Davis County Sheriff’s Office said.

While Adams and his snowmobile were immediately buried under the debris, his father managed to escape. Ben Adams said he prayed while calling 911 and Chase’s mother.

“We spent the day at a location that is dear to me and my boys,” he said Sunday in a statement released through the sheriff’s office. “We had a wonderful day doing what we love to do. When the snow slid, I was shocked, but I had a feeling everything was going to be okay.”

Adams was wearing the necessary safety equipment: an avalanche beacon and inflatable backpack. He deployed the airbag in his backpack, but it did not float as intended, according to the sheriff’s office.

The avalanche, which was unintentionally triggered, buried Adams under at least six feet of snow, the Utah Avalanche Center said.

Rescuers raced to the scene after receiving 911 calls. Within 70 minutes of the calls, rescuers located Chase, dug him out from the snow and airlifted him to a hospital, where he later died, the sheriff said.

UTAH SNOWBOARDER KILLED AFTER TRIGGERING ‘SIGNIFICANT’ AVALANCHE THAT BURIED HIM ALIVE

Ben Adams thanked rescuers, medical staff and other bystanders on the slope for their efforts.

“I am an extremely strong man and in the moment of physical need to save my son my strength availed nothing,” he said. “I was useless and shifted my strength to God. I relied on Him, knowing my nothingness and trusting His great power to give me strength to know that, someday, we will see each other again, by virtue of Jesus Christ.”

While what triggered the avalanche is still under investigation, officials told the Standard-Examiner that the recent fluctuation between snow and warm weather could have caused the slide.

US ambassador ‘surprised’ North Korea didn’t send threatened ‘Christmas gift’ as nuclear deadline closed

The U.S. ambassador to South Korea said Thursday he was “surprised” and “glad” that North Korea failed to deliver its threatened “Christmas gift” to the U.S. after Kim Jong Un’s end-of-year deadline to settle nuclear negotiations with the Trump administration passed without a compromise.

“You can say that I personally was surprised. But I’m glad also … there was no Christmas gift,” Ambassador Harry Harris told reporters in Seoul. “Washington was ready for any eventuality, and we were all glad that there was no ICBM test or nuclear test.”

TRUMP URGED TO ‘LOWER THE BOOM’ ON NORTH KOREA AMID NEW THREATS

Kim’s regime wanted sanctions eased by the end of the year and warned that its “Christmas gift” to the U.S. would depend on what action Washington took in the talks.

The warning was seen as a vague threat of a potential year-end provocation that prompted speculation of a new missile test, possibly of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead.

Pyongyang hasn’t conducted any new weapons tests despite the U.S. not meeting the Kim-imposed deadline to make concessions.

Harris said he was surprised and pleased that North Korea did not give the U.S. an unwelcome “Christmas gift” because of stalled nuclear disarmament talks, and that President Donald Trump is still confident it will denuclearize. (Heo Ran/Pool Photo via AP, File)

Harris said Trump believes Kim will live up to the Singapore pledge made during the leaders’ first summit in 2018 to complete total denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and build a lasting peace between the nations.

KIM JONG UN THREATENS TO RENEW TESTING NUCLEAR WEAPONS, LONG-RANGE MISSILES

“President Trump … is still confident that Kim Jong Un will meet the commitment that they both made together in Singapore,” Harris said. “We should focus on President Trump’s view that there is room for discussion here.”

The two subsequent summits and other low-level meetings, however, have not progressed the agreements and prospects for a restart of diplomacy are unclear.

Harris said both Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in “are keeping the door open to negotiations and hoping Kim Jong Un will walk through that door.”

“So the ball is in his court,” he said.

Kim began the new year with a warning, threatening that if the U.S. maintained its “hostile policy” toward North Korea, “the world will witness a new strategic weapon.”

Florida police have suspect after 4 bodies found in home linked to missing family

Florida police have a suspect in custody following the discovery of four bodies inside a home that reports have linked to a Connecticut family missing for over a week.

Osceola County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the home in Celebration – a community developed by the Walt Disney Company in the 1990s – on Monday morning after neighbors called police to check on the family, according to local reports.

MISSING CALIFORNIA BOY, 11, FOUND DEAD; POLICE CALL IT SUSPICIOUS

Officials have released few details regarding the case, including the names of the suspect and the victims. Deputies wouldn’t say how the victims were killed or what charges the suspect could face.

“All parties involved with this investigation are accounted for,” Sheriff Russ Gibson said during a brief news conference. He didn’t answer reporters’ questions about the case.

Neighbors who witnessed the scene described the residents to local reporters.

A couple and their three children lived at the home, neighbor Connie McGarian told FOX35 Orlando, describing them as the “perfect family.”

Neighbor Marcelo Rodriguez told the Orlando Sentinel that he saw the man who lived there with his family in handcuffs outside the home.

Deputies were looking into whether the death investigation was related to a recent report about a missing family, Maj. Jacob Ruiz, a spokesman for the Osceola sheriff told the paper.

UTAH WOMAN REPORTED MISSING WHILE ON FLORIDA WORK TRIP FOUND DEAD, FAMILY SAYS

A Connecticut family of five, missing for more than a week, recently moved to from Colchester to Celebration, friends and family told FOX61. They told the station they believe the family’s disappearance could be linked to the death investigation.

Colchester’s First Selectman’s Office released a statement Monday night.

“The news reports out of Celebration, Florida regarding a Colchester family are shocking and heartbreaking,” the office wrote on Facebook. “While there is much we do not know at this time, I know that the thoughts and prayers of our entire community are with the relatives and friends of the family involved.”

The family has been linked to the house where the investigation is taking place through court documents obtained by the Daily Beast; the property’s landlord had filed an order to evict them.

Celebration is a planned gated community designed and built by the Walt Disney Company just 4 miles from Walt Disney World.

“We live in Celebration,” Rodriguez told WFTV. “It’s where dreams come true basically, right? And this has happened. So it’s really sad.”

California hiker, 17, survives being stranded for 30 hours in snowy Utah mountains: ‘I shouldn’t even be alive’

A California teenager has shared the incredible story of how he survived being stranded for 30 hours in the mountains of Utah in sub-freezing temperatures and waist-deep snow.

Nicolas Stacy-Alcantara, a 17-year-old high school student from Fresno, said he was visiting his ex-girlfriend near Salt Lake City last week when he decided to go for a day-long hike alone with plans to return in time for dinner.

Stacy-Alcantara said the weather had been relatively mild when he began his planned route from Millcreek Canyon to Park City, but by late afternoon the temperature dipped and snow began to fall.

The weather forced Stacy-Alcantara to stop his journey. His cellphone had no service and his feet began to freeze.

I didn’t want PB&J to be my last meal.

— Nicolas Stacy-Alcantara, 17-year-old hiker

Stranded in the wilderness, he dug a snow cave beneath a tree to take cover from the elements. He rubbed his hands against his chest to keep the blood flowing.

“I knew my chest was more important than my feet,” he told reporters Wednesday at University of Utah Hospital, according to FOX13 Salt Lake City. “I knew if I lost those, I could still live, so I really just tied the ends of my jackets together. I tucked my arms inside my jacket and tucked my head inside my jacket.”

Knowing that if he fell asleep he might never wake up, the teen said he set an alarm on his phone to go off every 30 minutes. He grasped a beaded bracelet his ex-girlfriend had given him to help think about all those who cared for him and pushed himself to survive.

“I didn’t want PB&J to be my last meal,” he joked to reporters, according to KSL-TV.

But as the night wore on, the teen imagined his friends were in the cave and had what he believed could be his final conversations with them. He wrote letters to his family in case he didn’t make it out alive.

When the sun rose in the morning, he walked out of the snow cave, leaving behind his wet clothes and the boots too frozen to tie. Eventually, he came across some skiers who had a satellite phone.
