Louisiana police are on the hunt for “an aggressive chicken” reportedly terrorizing bank patrons getting cash out at the drive-thru and ATM amid the state’s coronavirus lockdown.

The Walker Police Department said officers responded “within a couple of minutes of the call” to the bank in Walker, a city about 22 miles east Baton Rouge, around 4 p.m. Saturday to find the “the chicken apparently anticipated the imminent arrival of law enforcement and fled on foot from the scene.”

“According to the complaint, the chicken had been terrorizing bank customers all week, at both the walk-up ATM and the drive-thru,” the department said in a light-hearted Facebook post. “Bank officials told officers that the chicken chased customers, attempted to enter customer vehicles and on a number of occasions, failed to engage in proper social distancing.”

LOUISIANA PASTOR BREAKS HOUSE ARREST TO HOLD SUNDAY SERVICE AMID CORONAVIRUS STAY-AT-HOME ORDERS 

A reddish-tan chicken, approximately 18 inches tall and weighing between 6 and 8 pounds, is being sought by police on charges of “assault, attempted battery, attempted burglary, terrorizing and ignoring an order of the Governor,” the post said.

“Despite patrols of the area, including the kitchen of a nearby restaurant, the chicken could not be located,” it continued. “Given the chicken’s history of aggressive behavior, the public is urged to avoid confronting the fowl and to instead, contact Walker Police if seen.”

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, extended the state’s stay-at-home until at least May 15, prompting about 250 protesters to gather outside the Governor’s Mansion near the state capitol in Baton Rouge over the weekend, demanding the economy reopen sooner, The Advocate reported.

Under the stay-at-home order in effect since March 23, gatherings of more than 10 people have been banned, restaurants have been limited to takeout and delivery, and nonessential businesses, including casinos, gyms, bars, theaters, bowling alleys, tattoo parlors and salons, have been required to remain closed.

Louisiana, as of Tuesday, recorded at least 29,673 confirmed coronavirus cases, with at least 1,991 deaths, according to the state health department.

Suspect drops nearly $1M on road during police chase in California: cops

A suspect dropped nearly $1 million in cash on the side of the road during a police chase in California on Friday, authorities said.

Frank Capraro, 23, and Desmond McDay, 25, both of New York, were arrested Friday evening following a chase that saw the men use walkie-talkies to communicate and a third suspect attempt to block a California Highway Patrol (CHP) vehicle, police said, according to the Merced Star-Sun.

The officer was traveling with his K9 partner “Beny,” who noticed the smell of narcotics on the cash and it was later discovered the suspects were traveling to northern California to purchase marijuana, the CHP said.

“K9 Beny usually gets all the glory in these types of incidents but it is his handler that really deserves the credit this time. What an amazing team!” CHP Merced wrote on Facebook.

Before the chase, the officer observed three cars traveling together on Interstate 5 in Merced County around 6:26 p.m. on Friday. He attempted to stop one of the vehicles — a black 2020 Chevrolet Suburban — which failed to yield. During the chase, one of the other vehicles, a black Ford Expedition, attempted to block the CHP officer, who was able to outmaneuver it.

The Suburban was eventually pursued and at some point dumped two cardboard boxes off near the shoulder of the highway. After dropping the cash, the driver took off again, before he eventually surrendered, police said.

“Merced Communications Center received several 911 calls regarding the cardboard boxes that were dropped off on the shoulder,” police said. “Officers retrieved the cardboard boxes and located U.S. currency estimated to be $915,000.”

Gaetz calls for DOJ to ban Chinese-made drones used to enforce social distancing guidelines

House Judiciary Committee member Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., is pressuring the Justice Department to halt the use of Chinese-made drones by state and local governments, telling “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday they may be giving hostile forces important law enforcement information.

“China is massively expanding a Trojan horse spying operation in our country and your local police department may be unknowingly helping them,” Gaetz. “The United States Army, the Department of Interior, they’ve banned their use of these DJI drones, citing vulnerability and potential value for other countries.

OFFICIALS AROUND THE COUNTRY USING DRONES TO PROMOTE SOCIAL DISTANCING

“The Department of Homeland Security wrote a scathing report that said that China specifically goes after local law enforcement,” Gaetz continued. “They did so even before the coronavirus so that they can get key information transmitted to the Chinese government. And then our own Department of Homeland Security wrote that this is precisely the type of information we’re worried that China might sell to terrorists.”

Drones from Shenzhen-based Da Jiang Innovations (DJI) have gone to 43 law enforcement agencies in 22 states to help ensure social distancing guidelines are being followed. In New Jersey, for example, the drones are being used to spy on citizens in places where patrol cars can’t go.

DJI has pushed back on claims its drones are used to spy on Americans and said that users can prevent their devices from transmitting data.

“The information that’s being collected makes our nation more vulnerable,” Gaetz said. “And I believe the attorney general, under the existing authorities he has, under these cybersecurity laws, should immediately ground the entire fleet of DJI drones used by U.S. law enforcement.

“We should not be spied on by our own government and giving the information then to a foreign government that’s hostile.”

NYPD officers say coronavirus social distancing policing needs to end

Officers from the New York Police Department have decried city officials “get cops out of the social distancing enforcement business altogether,” following backlash stemming from a violent confrontation with police over the weekend as officers tried to enforce the rules.

Patrick Lynch, the president of the Police Benevolent Association, lambasted city leadership, saying officers have received “nothing but vague guidelines and mixed messages, leaving the cops on the street corners to fend for ourselves.”

NEW YORK CITY MOTORCYCLE GANG LEADER KILLED IN APPARENT HIT, REPORT SAYS

As the weather heated up in New York City, the police department dispatched 1,000 officers on Saturday to break up large gatherings and enforce social distancing rules intended to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

Officials said over 112 summonses were issued in the city over the weekend for failing to obey social distancing orders and at least three people were arrested.

The arrests occurred in Manhattan’s East Village, where a plainclothes officer handcuffed two people, Shakiem Brunson, 31, and Ashley Serrano, 22, at a deli.

When officers approached a third person, 33-year-old Donni Wright, a confrontation occurred and the officer was caught on camera slapping Wright in the face, punching him in the shoulder and dragging him to a sidewalk after leveling him in a crosswalk.

The exchange was caught on video by a bystander and went viral on social media.

The police response has been juxtaposed with a seemingly milder approach in other neighborhoods across the city, where photos of parks show droves of people less than six feet apart from each other with no masks or gloves on soaking up the sun.

Wright has been charged with assault on a police officer and resisting arrest, but the Manhattan district attorney’s office said it would defer prosecution pending further investigation.

Mayor Bill de Blasio called the incident “unacceptable,” and that officer has since been stripped of his gun and badge and placed on desk duty pending an internal investigation. Overall though, the mayor said police in New York have been successfully encouraging the community to abide by rules set in place due to the coronavirus.

“Just the appearance of the NYPD causes people to correct their behavior,” de Blasio said during a press conference on Monday.

“This one incident is troubling, but there’s been thousands and tens of thousands of interactions between police officers and civilians over the last weeks that went very well where the NYPD went and made sure that people were practicing social distancing when enforcement was necessary.”

Still, Lynch said in a statement Monday: “Nobody has a right to interfere with a police action. But now that the inevitable backlash has arrived, they are once again throwing us under the bus.”

Tensions between police and de Blasio have been ongoing but officers have taken on an additional and unprecedented role of enforcing measures to protect the public’s health.

The mayor announced officers will be a part of an effort to distribute 7.5 million protective masks over the next few weeks.

New York City has been the hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic in the country with 24,894 people dead and 318,953 others infected. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., has urged New Yorkers to stay home as much as possible to flatten the curve and hopefully get the state’s economy reopened in the upcoming weeks.

Authorities in Michigan are searching for a man who was caught on video using a Dollar Tree employee’s shirt to wipe his nose after being advised he had to wear a mask in the store to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The Holly Police Department said Monday on Facebook the incident happened Saturday around 1:30 p.m. at the store on North Saginaw Street in the village of Holly, located about 53 miles northwest of downtown Detroit.

Police said the clerk was working when she noticed the man walking through the store without a mask, despite signs posted on the building’s entry doors that stated all customers must wear a mask to enter.

On April 24, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order requiring everyone to wear a face-covering in an enclosed public space in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Kansas police department’s officer of the year killed in shootout with hit-and-run suspect

A veteran Kansas cop who was named his department’s officer of the year in 2019 was killed in a shootout with a hit-and-run suspect over the weekend.

Overland Park Officer Mike Mosher, 37, passed away Sunday evening at a hospital while surrounded by his wife and daughter, according to FOX4KC. Earlier that day, Mosher was off-duty but in uniform when he saw an apparent hit-and-run and pursued the suspect, which led to a shootout, police say.

“He did his job all the way up to the end, so I got to respect an officer like that,” Officer John Lacy, the department’s spokesperson, told FOX4KC. “He was a true gentleman. He was a wonderful officer.”

Overland Park police say the suspect – whose name has not yet been released – died at the scene. It’s not clear what led to the exchange of gunfire and further details about the hit-and-run incident were not immediately available.

Mosher had been with the Overland Park department for nearly 15 years and was named its officer of the year in 2019.

“I know that I speak for Mike when I say that he was proud to be a police officer. It’s all he ever wanted to do. He loved what he did,” Police Chief Frank Donchez said, adding that Mosher was good at his job.

Mosher’s death “is a tragic reminder of the enormous debt of gratitude we owe the men and women in law enforcement for protecting our communities,” Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a statement.

Overland Park is near the Missouri state line and part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. An interagency Johnson County team tasked with investigating police shootings will handle the case, Donchez says.

San Francisco cops have been told not to wear “Thin Blue Line” flag coronavirus masks when they are on the job, according to reports.

The edict reportedly came down last Friday from SFPD Chief Bill Scott after officers generated controversy when they were seen wearing the masks at a May Day protest by homeless activists at an abandoned property.

“Thin Blue Line masks shall not be worn by our on-duty members,” he wrote in an email to members of the department, Fox 2 San Francisco reported. The department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The flag has become identified with the pro-police “Blue Lives Matter” movement, which in turn has been seen as a response to the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

Scott wrote in the email that the “symbolism on some of our officers’ face masks may be perceived as divisive or disrespectful,” Fox 2 reported.

The chief also acknowledged the symbol dated back three decades and was adopted by the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial, calling it a “meaningful expression to honor fallen officers,” the station added.

Scott said the department will provide officers with a neutral coronavirus mask alternative.

The San Francisco Examiner reported that after viewing video of a line of officers wearing the masks at the protest, Shamann Walton, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, said, “that looks more like something you see below the Mason Dixon Line.”

The organizers of the protest in the city’s Castro neighborhood were from a homeless advocacy group, Reclaim SF.

California man arrested 3 times in a day, given citations and released due coronavirus restrictions

A man in California was arrested three times over the course of 12 hours on Wednesday — including for allegedly leading officers on a pursuit — and was only given citations and released each time due to the statewide zero-bail policy amid the coronavirus outbreak, according to officials.

The Glendora Police Department said Friday on Facebook that 24-year-old Dijon Landrum from Monterey Park racked up three citations between 8:28 a.m. and 8:50 p.m. on Wednesday after three incidents in the city located about 23 miles east of Los Angeles.

“We want to thank all of the citizens that helped with this investigation, particularly those that called when they noticed something suspicious,” police said.

According to police, the first incident happened around 8:28 a.m. when officers responding to a call of a man who was attempting to break into a vehicle on the 1400 block of South Grand Avenue.

When officers arrived at the scene, they contacted Landrum, who was attempting to drive away in a stolen vehicle from the East Los Angeles area. In addition to driving a stolen vehicle, police said the 24-year-old had stolen property and narcotics with him.

“Landrum was arrested,” police said. “Due to the California Zero-Bail Policy, he was issued a citation and released.”

One hour after Landrum was released, officers received a call around 2:20 p.m. of an unknown man carrying a box and walking through the front yards of homes.

“It appeared that the male was placing items in this box as he was walking through the properties,” police said.

When officers arrived on the scene, they encountered Landrum for the second time, reportedly with a box of stolen property. He was issued a second citation and released.

Several hours later around 8:50 p.m., officers received a call of a vehicle that had been stolen out of a parking lot on the 1300 block of South Grand Avenue.

Officers tracked the vehicle and located it heading along the westbound 100 freeway in La Puente, with assistance from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office and California Highway Patrol.

A pursuit eventually ended in Pasadena, where Landrum was once again arrested, this time for allegedly being in possession of a stolen vehicle and for evading officers.

“Due to the California Zero-Bail Policy, Landrum was released with his third citation of the day,” police said.

The zero-cash bail emergency mandate in California, which has lead to reduced prison populations to reduce the spread of COVID-19, is continuing to be a challenge for law enforcement as alleged criminals are released back into the public, according to FOX11.

Last weekend, a man in Chino Hills was arrested four times over the course of two days for allegedly trespassing on the same property, only to be released due to the zero cash bail policy.

Cindy Bachman, the Public Information Officer for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, said Saturday there have been complaints from the community about the new mandate.

“We hear from people and they’re disappointed that someone can commit a crime and they go to jail, we go through the whole process with them and book them for the crime because there is probable cause to do that, and then because of this order, they’re released,” Bachman told FOX11. “People are disappointed, they’re angry, but this is an order. We have to follow it, but we don’t have to be happy about it.”

As the coronavirus pandemic has worsened, concern shifted to crowded prisons in some communities, where inmates not only live in close proximity to one another, but share laundries, baths and communal eating areas.

The United States has 2.3 million inmates in about 5,000 jails and prisons across the country — believed to be the largest prison population in the world. According to the Bureau of Justice, nearly 200,000 people 55 and older are behind bars.

CALIFORNIA SHERIFF OUTRAGED THAT CHILD ABUSE SUSPECT COULD BE FREED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

Officials in California, for instance, responded by releasing thousands of non-violent inmates to open up space in facilities to prevent the spread of the virus.

Orange County, Calif., District Attorney Todd Spitzer told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Saturday he was “outraged” after the state ordered the release of seven high-risk sex offenders from the county’s jails over concerns they could contract coronavirus.

“We’ve all been told that during the pandemic we needed to release people early, you know, with less than 30 days on their sentence and things like that because of the underlying health pandemic and the fact that we needed to exercise social distancing within the custodial facilities,” he said Saturday. “However, as you know, in the United States today there is a social justice agenda to end bail for those who are incarcerated and this has gone too far.”

There are 13 exceptions for the zero-cash bail emergency mandate for serious offenses, but child abuse is not one of them.

As of mid-April, over 16,000 inmates had been released nationwide, due to the virus.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Friday that police will issue citations and possibly arrest any resident who fails to follow stay-at-home orders aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19.

“We will shut you down, we will cite you, and if we need to, we will arrest you and we will take you to jail,” she said Saturday during a press conference.

Lightfoot said Chicago police broke up gatherings of between 50 and 150 people on Friday night, and that authorities were tipped off to at least six parties and gatherings that were set for Saturday night, ABC 7 reported.

“This frankly doesn’t come as a surprise, given the warm weather. We’ve all been cooped up. We all miss our friends, and we all want to go outside and gather in groups,” Lightfoot said. “However, those aspirations simply cannot become a reality in the middle of a pandemic.”

“If you host a party, promote a party, or go to a party, we are not playing games. We mean business, and we will shut this down one way or another,” she said, NBC Chicago reported. “The time for educating people into compliance is over. Don’t be stupid. We’re watching you, and we’re going to take decisive action.”

This news comes less than one week after a viral video purportedly showed a massive house party in Chicago on Sunday, despite stay-at-home orders being issued for the area.
