New York police slam videos showing officers pelted with objects, drenched with water: ‘reprehensible’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6062879778001_6062880976001-vs New York police slam videos showing officers pelted with objects, drenched with water: 'reprehensible' Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/tech/technologies/video fox-news/tech/companies/instagram fox news fnc/us fnc e755f188-4e6e-5347-b1b0-d8e57053eff7 article

Videos of New York Police Department officers being doused with water and pelted with objects in separate incidents surfaced on social media on Monday, including one clip that showed officers getting drenched as they were making an arrest.

NYPD officials called the videos “reprehensible.”

In one video, somebody hurled a bucket that hit an officer in the head while he was making an arrest in Harlem. Groups of jeering bystanders could be heard reacting as people continued to splash the officers with water.

“The videos of cops being doused with water and having objects hurled at them as they made an arrest in #Harlem is reprehensible,” NYPD Chief Terence Monahan said in a tweet on Monday.

“NYC’s cops & communities have made remarkable progress — together — but EVERY New Yorker MUST show respect for our cops. They deserve nothing less.”

In a later tweet, Monahan wrote, “To NY’s Finest: the work you do every day is remarkable. We trust you to do what is a very difficult job.”

He encouraged officers to use their discretion and make arrests when necessary.

“Thank you for what you do day in and day out,” Monahan wrote. “Please stay safe.”

In another viral video uniformed NYPD officers were seen getting drenched as they walked on a Brooklyn street. One man approached the officer and poured a bucket of water directly over his head. The officers stayed calm and seemed to ignore the situation.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio reacted to one of the videos on Monday calling it “completely unacceptable.”

The 2020 presidential hopeful, a Democrat, tweeted, “A video from the 28 Precinct [Harlem] shows people interfering in an arrest by throwing water and objects at officers.”

“The NYPD kept New Yorkers safe through the heatwave and last night’s outages. We won’t tolerate this kind of disrespect,” he continued, adding that the NYPD was investigating.

The Police Benevolent Association (PBA) of the City of New York released a statement on the “’Water Bucket’ Attacks on Police Officers” putting the blame on lawmakers.

PBA president Patrick Lynch said, “Our anti-cop lawmakers have gotten their wish: the NYPD is now frozen.”

He added that the “attacks” were “the end result of the torrent of bad policies and anti-police rhetoric that has been streaming out of City Hall and Albany for years now.”

Lynch said, “We are approaching the point of no return.”

He went on to say that “disorder controls the streets” and “elected leaders refuse to allow us to take them back.”

“The politicians may not care about the dangerous levels of chaos in our neighborhoods, but police officers and decent New Yorkers should not be forced to suffer.”

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo won’t face criminal charges over rape claims, prosecutors say

Westlake Legal Group Cristiano-Ronaldo Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo won't face criminal charges over rape claims, prosecutors say Talia Kaplan fox-news/us fox-news/sports/soccer fox-news/sports fox news fnc/sports fnc article 25fb736b-a1c8-5cae-a15c-92c73b9f55eb

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo won’t face criminal charges related to a decade-old sexual assault allegation. prosecutors said Monday.

A Nevada woman, Kathryn Mayorga, accused Ronaldo of raping her in his suite at a Las Vegas resort, the city’s top prosecutor said. “Based upon a review of the information presented at this time, the allegations of sexual assault against Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” a news release from the Clark County Office of the District Attorney said.  “Therefore, no charges will be forthcoming.”

BOXING STAR ANTHONY JOSHUA SLAMMED FOR HAILING CRISTIANO RONALDO AS ‘HERO’ AMID RAPE ALLEGATIONS

Ronaldo’s attorney, Peter Christiansen, did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment, but according to The Associated Press, he has said Ronaldo and Mayorga had consensual sex in 2009.

Mayorga’s attorneys, Leslie Mark Stovall and Larissa Drohobyczer, told AP the former model and schoolteacher, who gave consent through them to make her name public, has a lawsuit pending against the soccer star in a federal court in Las Vegas, accusing him or those in his employ of defamation and breach of contract for allowing terms of a confidential financial settlement to become public.

Stovall reportedly acknowledged that her client received $375,000 in hush money following the encounter. Ronaldo maintained that the agreement was made under pressure from those trying to protect his reputation.

The lawsuit seeks to void the agreement and collect at least $200,000 more from Ronaldo, who is one of the most popular and highly paid players in sports.

Mayorga said Ronaldo sexually assaulted her in June 2009, and she underwent a medical exam at the time, prosecutors said. The initial investigation was closed later that year because Mayorga did not identify her attacker by name, saying only that he was a European soccer player, according to the police. They added that she also did not disclose where the alleged assault was said to have occurred.

“Without knowing the identity of the perpetrator or the location of the crime, detectives were unable to search for and impound vital forensic evidence,” said the Clark County district attorney. “In addition, video evidence, showing interactions between the victim and perpetrator before and after the alleged crime, was lost.”

CRISTIANO RONALDO’S DNA SOUGHT BY INVESTIGATORS IN LAS VEGAS RAPE CASE, LAWYER SAYS 

The investigation was reopened last year at Mayorga’s request, shortly before she sued Ronaldo. This time Mayorga named Ronaldo as the offender, according to the district attorney’s office. She reportedly spoke with police again and authorities obtained a sample of Ronaldo’s DNA this year as part of the new investigation.

Mayor in Puerto Rico rebuts embattled Gov. Ricardo Rosselló’s claim of support

Westlake Legal Group Shep-PR Mayor in Puerto Rico rebuts embattled Gov. Ricardo Rosselló's claim of support Talia Kaplan fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/puerto-rico fox-news/politics/state-and-local/governors fox-news/politics/state-and-local/controversies fox news fnc/politics fnc article 87885a02-42d6-509e-9a51-23306b4b4a1a

A mayor in Puerto Rico has disputed embattled Gov. Ricardo Rosselló’s claim that he supports him, amid widespread protests and calls for Rosselló to step down.

Rosselló appeared on “Shepard Smith Reporting” on Monday for his first one-on-one interview since the emergence of allegations that he is corrupt, and that he insulted the people of Puerto Rico, including victims of Hurricane Maria.

During the heated interview, Rosselló named Javier Jiménez, the mayor of San Sebastian — a municipality in Puerto Rico —  as one of his supporters.

PUERTO RICO GOVERNOR TELLS FOX NEWS HE ‘ASSUMES RESPONSIBILITY’ FOR ACTIONS IN FIRST ONE-ON-ONE INTERVIEW SINCE SCANDAL BEGAN

In response, Jiménez told Fox News later on Monday that he does not support the governor at all.

Jiménez told Fox News the statement was inaccurate. He also said he’s awaiting the results of an investigation of leaked on online chats between Rosselló and several other government officials. Those chats are said to show Rosselló insulting women and political opponents and mocking victims of Maria.

Jiménez also issued a public statement on the San Sebastian Facebook page: “I have been clear and consistent in establishing that our Constitution provides mechanisms to interrupt the tenure by which a governor was elected by popular vote.”

The post continued,: “The Puerto Rico House of Representatives has already begun the evaluation related to the ‘chat’ in which the governor participated, assembling a committee of lawyers from different political ideologies who will evaluate whether there are serious or less serious offenses that lead to moral corruption so that an impeachment process could be initiated. I have established that we should expect this committee to issue an assessment on the ‘chat.’”

Rosselló announced Sunday that he won’t seek re-election, but he also resisted calls to resign. The scandal led nearly 100,000 protesters to take to the streets in and around the capital city, San Juan.

PUERTO RICO GOVERNOR ANNOUNCES HE WILL NOT SEEK RE-ELECTION BUT REFUSES TO RESIGN 

Many Puerto Ricans have been vocal in calling for Rosselló’s resignation since the chat leaks emerged.

Rosselló said Sunday in a Facebook video that he agreed with the people’s right to protest and was willing to confront the impeachment process, which already had begun in Puerto Rico’s legislature. He said although he will not resign as the island’s leader, he will step down as head of his pro-statehood party.

Rosselló acknowledged his “mistakes” and pointed out that he had apologized in the past. He did not offer a formal apology in Sunday’s video and did not immediately offer an apology during the interview with Smith on Monday.

“Everything that was said I assume responsibility for. I apologize for it,” Rosselló told Smith after he was asked if he had apologized “sufficiently.”

Earlier this month, Puerto Rico’s Center for Investigative Journalism published nearly 900 pages of private messages between Rosselló and other government officials.

In one message Rosselló called one New York female politician of Puerto Rican descent a “w—e” and described another as a “daughter of a b—h.”

One chat also made vulgar references to Latin pop star Ricky Martin’s sexuality.

The calls to oust the governor have caught the attention of the mainland U.S., where there have been more calls for him to step aside. President Trump has blasted Rosselló on Monday as “a terrible governor.”

Israel’s internal security service said Sunday it had foiled a plan to carry out a terror attack at a hotel in Israel, according to reports.

Adel Abu Hadayeb, an Arab-Israeli man accused of supporting the militant group Hamas, was caught trying to carry out the attack at the Leonardo Hotel in Ashdod, which is about a half-hour from Tel Aviv, The Times of Israel reported, citing The Shin Bet security service.

Abu Hadayeb, of the southern Bedouin town of Rahat, reportedly was indicted on Sunday for allegedly trying to bomb the hotel, which is near where he worked as a gardener.

The 20-year-old allegedly became a supporter of Hamas after being exposed to promotional materials online. Shin Bet explained it was part of a trend in which Israeli citizens were being “influenced by Hamas propaganda spread on social networks and through Palestinian media,” the Times of Israel reported.

The online newspaper reported that Abu Hadayeb had already tried to build a bomb and a rocket for the attack when he was arrested last month.

He allegedly led investigators to five grenades and a gun he had in his possession as well.

The newspaper reported that the East Jerusalem teen contacted two Gazan Hamas operatives in February through Facebook, who then reportedly asked him to take photographs and gather information on Israeli national security sites.

The teen allegedly went to military checkpoints and police stations and sent the Hamas operatives footage from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and other sites.

The indictment reportedly said the 17-year-old knew the information would be used to help the terror group plan military actions.

Tennessee felon arrested after ramming into police cruiser during chase, investigators say

A convicted felon in Tennessee was arrested after he allegedly rammed into a police cruiser and led officers on a chase, according to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

Derell Broyles, 19, allegedly had sped off from Juvenile Crime Task Force officers who tried to stop the 2015 Honda Accord he was driving. Police said officers had been on the lookout for the vehicle in connection to a carjacking and robbery that unfolded earlier this month.

The officers spotted the Honda and a white 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, both thought to be connected to robbery investigations, at a Nashville apartment complex Friday night, police said.

As officers in a marked patrol vehicle turned around to follow the Jeep, Broyles allegedly rammed into the back of the police cruiser and took off.

Broyles later was involved in a hit-and-run at an intersection about eight miles from the apartment complex and his passenger ran off, police said. Broyles then allegedly sped off before crashing about six miles away.

Officers found the Honda, which had been carjacked on July 13, unoccupied, and recovered a gun and two ski masks from the car, police said.

“While a perimeter was being established, officers were flagged down by four victims who reported that when they saw Broyles pulling on their vehicle door handles, he pointed a gun at them and fled into a wooded area,” police said in a news release.

Broyles, who refused to be interviewed, was arrested a short time later and faced several charges including aggravated assault on police officers, leaving the scene of a crash, felon in possession of a handgun and evading arrest, police added. Broyles’ passenger has not been charged.

The officers were not hurt in the crash, according to police.

The said Broyles was convicted of vehicle theft and unlawful gun possession in May 2018 and was sentenced to three years behind bars.

Police said they also recovered the stolen Jeep unoccupied, at another Nashville apartment complex, adding that it had been reported stolen on July 3 after it was left unlocked with a spare key inside.

Puerto Rico governor announces he will not seek re-election but refuses to resign

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló announced Sunday he will not seek re-election but refused to resign, as corruption allegations have sparked widespread protests in San Juan.

Puerto Ricans have been calling for Rosselló’s resignation after leaked online chats showed the Democrat insulting women and political opponents as well as mocking victims of Hurricane Maria, one of the most devastating natural disasters to hit the island territory.

PUERTO RICO’S GOVERNOR GOES AWOL AS PROTESTORS GATHER OUTSIDE HIS RESIDENCE, US OFFICIALS CALL TO STEP DOWN

His official residence has been under siege this week as hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered outside La Fortaleza, the governor’s official residence.

Amid the outcry, the media-friendly governor has avoided public appearances since July 11, making only four brief appearances, breaking from his usual three or four lengthy news conferences in addition to multiple media appearances.

A wave of protests hit the island on Friday, with union workers marching towards La Fortaleza from the nearby waterfront. Horseback riders and hundreds of other people also joined the march.

Smaller protests also broke out across the island over the weekend, though most people were expected to hit the streets on Monday.

The calls to oust the governor have caught the attention in the mainland U.S. and several officials, including presidential candidate Julián Castro, have come out in support of the protesters.

Castro, a Democrat, openly called on Rosselló to step down, saying “it’s clear that Gov. Rosselló can no longer be effective.”

CASTRO BECOMES FIRST 2020 DEM TO URGE EMBATTLED PUERTO RICO GOVERNOR TO STEP DOWN

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., and Reps. Nydia Velázquez, D-N.Y., and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., also called for his ouster.

Some well-known athletes with ties to the island also urged the governor to resign last week, including the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Enrique Hernandez and the Saint Louis Cardinals’ Yadier Molina.

Puerto Rico’s Center for Investigative Journalism earlier this month published nearly 900 pages of private messages between Rosselló and several other government officials.

In one message Rosselló called one New York female politician of Puerto Rican descent a “w—e” and described another as a “daughter of a b—h.” One chat also made vulgar references to Latin pop star Ricky Martin’s homosexuality.

During a July 11 news conference, Rosselló asked Puerto Ricans to forgive him for the comments he made in private. In further media appearances, he continued to ask for forgiveness over the comments many deemed offensive and misogynistic.

Puerto Rico governor announces he will not seek re-election but refuses to resign

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló announced Sunday he will not seek re-election but refused to resign, as corruption allegations have sparked widespread protests in San Juan.

Puerto Ricans have been calling for Rosselló’s resignation after leaked online chats showed the Democrat insulting women and political opponents as well as mocking victims of Hurricane Maria, one of the most devastating natural disasters to hit the island territory.

His official residence has been under siege this week as hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered outside La Fortaleza, the governor’s official residence.

Amid the outcry, the media-friendly governor has avoided public appearances since July 11, making only four brief appearances, breaking from his usual three or four lengthy news conferences in addition to multiple media appearances.

A wave of protests hit the island on Friday, with union workers marching towards La Fortaleza from the nearby waterfront. Horseback riders and hundreds of other people also joined the march.

Smaller protests also broke out across the island over the weekend, though most people were expected to hit the streets on Monday.

The calls to oust the governor have caught the attention in the mainland U.S. and several officials, including presidential candidate Julián Castro, have come out in support of the protesters.

Castro, a Democrat, openly called on Rosselló to step down, saying “it’s clear that Gov. Rosselló can no longer be effective.”

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., and Reps. Nydia Velázquez, D-N.Y., and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., also called for his ouster.

Some well-known athletes with ties to the island also urged the governor to resign last week, including the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Enrique Hernandez and the Saint Louis Cardinals’ Yadier Molina.

Puerto Rico’s Center for Investigative Journalism earlier this month published nearly 900 pages of private messages between Rosselló and several other government officials.

In one message Rosselló called one New York female politician of Puerto Rican descent a “w—e” and described another as a “daughter of a b—h.” One chat also made vulgar references to Latin pop star Ricky Martin’s homosexuality.
