  • A Florida man is accused of killing two people on the same day in two different counties, authorities said. Ian Jackson, 26, of Miramar, was arrested Wednesday, WPLG reported. Jackson is accused in connection with the murders of Roy Gissendanner in Broward County and O’Neill William in Miami-Dade County, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Gissendanner, 63, was found by Broward County deputies on June 22 with two gunshot wounds, including one to his head, the newspaper reported. He was pronounced dead at the scene. While investigating, deputies learned that Jackson was driving Gissendanner’s Ford Taurus, WPLG reported. Deputies then learned that the Miami Gardens Police Department was investigating the fatal shooting of William at a gas station in Miami-Dade County, the Sun-Sentinel reported. “This incident was captured on surveillance footage and shows Jackson arriving at the gas station in the vehicle stolen from Gissendanner, where he is seen confronting a second victim,” the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Each department filed warrants for Jackson’s arrest, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Jackson was arrested in Broward County and was taken to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami-Dade County, where he is being held without bail
  • One of the former Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd on May 25 was released from jail Saturday, according to Hennepin County jail records. Tao Thao, 34, posted $750,000 bail and was released from jail shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday, the Star-Tribune of Minneapolis reported. Thao had been held on $1 million bail with no conditions or $750,000 bail with conditions, the newspaper reported. Thao was one of the officers present when fellow Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. He is the third former police officer to be released. Thao, along with Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng, were charged with unintentional aiding and abetting second-degree murder as well as aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter, KSTP reported. Lane and Kueng were already released from jail. Chauvin was charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter and remains in jail. Thao is scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m. on Sept. 11, the Star-Tribune reported.
  • A steady stream of boats headed up the Monongahela River in Pittsburgh toward the Hot Metal Bridge while a crowd of protesters clashed with supporters on the riverwalk Saturday. Hundreds of boats and thousands of people were expected to take part in a boat parade in support of President Donald Trump. Most Trump supporters were dressed in red, white and blue and were not wearing masks. As chanting escalated back and forth between Trump supporters and protesters, mounted police positioned themselves between the two groups. Tensions heightened as the two sides began yelling and cursing at each other on the riverwalk. Additional police officers responded to the scene, creating a barrier. Pittsburgh police were on the scene monitoring the situation. “This was supposed to be a nice Trump rally on boats. It was very well organized, but for these people to show up and do this is so wrong,” Maggie Jayson, a Pittsburgh resident, told WPXI. “And we are going to demonstrate peacefully, ‘cause that’s our right. And as long as we’re doing it in the right manner, we can do that.” After less than an hour, police escorted Trump supporters from the pier in what ended as a non-violent -- but also not entirely peaceful -- Fourth of July gathering.
  • It was “Back to the Future” for the Milwaukee Brewers. Now that baseball training camps have opened, the team released its annual movie-spoofing video. The one that dropped Friday was a parody of the 1985 science fiction classic, “Back to the Future.” Instead of a time-traveling DeLorean automobile, the Brewers used a bullpen car to go back to 1982, the year “Harvey’s Wallbangers,” managed by Harvey Kuenn, led the team to its only World Series appearance. The video includes Brewers players Ryan Braun, Lorenzo Cain, Brent Suter, Keston Huira and Christian Yelich, WTMJ reported. Even Brewers manager Craig Counsell makes an appearance. Huira played the modern-day version of Marty McFly, while Suter reprised the eccentric role of Emmett “Doc” Brown, WITI reported. Last year, the Brewers parodied the 2004 teen comedy “Mean Girls,” and in 2018 spoofed “Dumb and Dumber” and “The Sandlot,” WITI reported.
  • Former major league pitcher Tyson Brummett was killed Friday when the plane he was piloting crashed in rural Utah, authorities said. He was 35. Brummett, who pitched one game for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2012, crashed shortly after taking off from the South Valley Regional Airport in West Jordan, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. The passengers were identified as Alex Blackhurst Ruegner, 35, Elaine W. Blackhurst, 60, and her husband Douglas Robinson Blackhurst, 62, the Sheriff’s Office said. All three were from Riverton, Utah. Brummett was from Salt Lake City. The Phillies released a statement Saturday, writing that the organization “sends heartfelt condolences to the family of and friends of former pitcher Tyson Brummett, along with three members of the Ruegner and Blackhurst families, who tragically passed away in a plane crash yesterday morning.” Gregg Rawlings told WPVI he was hiking with his sons in the area and witnessed the crash. ”As it got closer and closer, it started to make a strong right-hand turn and, coming out of that turn, the wings seemed to go back and forth a little bit,” Rawlings told the television station. “But it dipped to the right again and the plane went into a downward corkscrew motion.” According to his LinkedIn profile, Brummett had been a certified flight instructor since January. Brummett was drafted three times, twice by the San Francisco Giants (2003 and 2004) and once by the Phillies, according to Bleacher Report. He was drafted by Philadelphia in the seventh round of the 2007 draft out of UCLA. After playing four seasons in the minors, Brummett made his only major league appearance on Oct. 3, 2012, in the Phillies’ season finale. He struck out two and allowed two hits in two-thirds of an inning in relief during a 5-1 loss to the Washington Nationals.
  • A 19-year-old McDonald’s employee in California has filed a complaint alleging assault and negligence of management after an alleged attack by a customer who refused to wear a mask. Maria Resendiz, who works at a McDonald’s in Oakland, filed a complaint Monday with the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration, SFGate reported. Resendiz said she was attacked June 27 in the drive-thru by a customer after she refused him service for not wearing a mask, the website reported. Resendiz also alleged several instances of worker abuse by customers and a lack of concern by management for worker safety, according to her complaint. According to the complaint, Resendiz said she asked the customer to wear a mask, which is required by the restaurant and Alameda County officials. The customer allegedly swore and uttered an ethnic slur, KPIX reported. The man then allegedly moved his car away from the drive-thru, approached Resendiz at the window on foot and continued to yell at her while banging on the window, SFGate reported. According to her complaint, Resendiz alleged that when she took her hand off the window to call the police, the man opened it and demanded that someone give him the employee’s full name. According to Resendiz, her manager wrote her name on a piece of paper and was about to hand it to the customer “so he would leave,” when the employee intervened, “What if he kills me?” Resendiz said, according to the complaint, adding that the manager “was silent.” Resendiz then said the customer grabbed and slapped her, KPIX reported. Michael Smith, the owner of the franchise, told Business Insider that safety was a priority and that he was working with Oakland police to investigate the case. “On Saturday, we learned of an altercation at our San Pablo Avenue restaurant,” Smith said in a statement. “The supervisor on duty called local law enforcement immediately to report the incident. Officers were welcomed into the restaurant to review security footage and are still investigating this matter.” Resendiz was taken to a hospital and was treated for a hand injury and scratches on her neck, KPIX reported. “I just want to tell customers not to disrespect us,” Resendiz told Business Insider. “We’re humans as well.”
