Police Chief Busted for Masturbating at Beach, Inside Elevator With Women and Kids

An Alabama police chief is accused of fondling himself inside an elevator and masturbating while walking behind teenage girls on a Florida beach.

Billy Maurice Driggers, 44, was arrested Thursday on four counts of disorderly conduct after witnesses and guests told police he was spotted touching himself while watching women on Tuesday at the Aqua Condominium in Panama City Beach, police said.

Driggers, who was not a registered guest at the residence and had no valid reason to be there, was also seen by witnesses placing his hand in his pants and masturbating while on an elevator on at least three separate occasions in front of women and children, police said.

Driggers was accused of masturbating while walking behind teenage girls on the beach and filming or taking photos of the teens as they used outdoor showers. Investigators said they found no instances of Driggers exposing himself, but his actions were determined to be obscene and sexually deviant, leading them to obtain a warrant for the police chief’s arrest.

Detectives later learned that Driggers was the chief of police in Level Plains, Alabama, where he was arrested Thursday at his office. He was taken into custody at the Dale County Jail, where he’s awaiting extradition to Bay County, Florida, police said.

Driggers, of Daleville, Alabama, has since been placed on administrative leave without pay pending the outcome of his arrest, city officials announced on Facebook. Another police officer will be appointed to serve as acting police chief in the interim, according to a statement released by Level Plains Mayor Bruce Grantham.

“This incident will not affect current police department services to our citizens and Level Plains has the cooperation and support of the Dale County Sheriff’s Office and the Alabama State Troopers during the period,” Grantham said in a statement.

Neighboring police departments will also assist the Level Plains police as part of its mutual support agreement, Grantham said.

 Driving Instructor Was Drunk Behind Wheel Before Crash 

A boozed-up driving instructor from Long Island was so reckless behind that wheel that his students got out of the car and hid in a McDonald’s before he rear-ended another driver and got arrested, police said.

“I’m happy to be alive,” one of the students, 16-year-old Matt McGeough told Newsday.

Suffolk Auto Driving School instructor Russell Cohen, 58, was driving McGeough and three other teens in Centereach on Saturday morning when the pupils suspected he was drunk, cops said.

Cohen made inappropriate comments to two of the teenage girls in the car and hit a curb during the lesson, the teens told Newsday.

They convinced him to pull into a McDonald’s on Middle Country Road and called 911 at about 11 a.m., authorities said.

“We jumped out as soon as possible,” student Lila Mabanta, told the Long Island newspaper.

Cohen realized the students weren’t coming out of the McDonald’s and drove away from the restaurant, police said.

He rear-ended a 29-year-old Honda driver about 45 minutes later on Montauk Trail in Ridge, cops said. The Honda driver was taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Cohen was arrested on aggravated DWI and endangering the welfare of a child charges, police said.

Man Accused of Putting Meth in His Mother-in-law’s Coffee Gets Prison

A Virginia man who allegedly attempted to kill his mother-in-law by putting methamphetamine in her coffee has been sentenced to prison.

After reaching a plea deal, Jack David Price, 56, of Pamplin was sentenced to six years in prison earlier this week. Price is accused of putting meth in his 95-year-old mother-in-law’s coffee in December 2017, The News & Advance reported.

Prosecutors say Ester Price was admitted to a hospital last year showing signs of meth in her system. At the time, Ester Price’s granddaughter, who has not been identified, told authorities she suspected Jack Price was trying to kill her grandmother.

Ester Price also told authorities that the day before she became ill, Jack Price brought her coffee — a gesture she said was “not an ordinary event,” The News & Advance reported.

Jack Price was sentenced Thursday after reaching a plea deal. Prosecutors dropped an attempted first-degree murder charge in exchange for him pleading guilty to altering food, drink or drugs and other offenses.

The Moment a Man Performing the Kiki Challenge is Slapped to the Ground by a Passer-By

This is the shocking moment a brazen pedestrian slaps a man to the ground for doing the ‘Kiki challenge’.

The man wearing a flat cap seemed annoyed that the other man was attempting the dangerous challenge.

The passer-by screamed, in an American accent, ‘No! No! No!’ at the camera holder after felling the man dancing to rap-star Drake’s hit ‘In My Feelings’.

The Kiki craze has been heavily condemned by road safety charities and authorities as thousands of impressionable youngsters have copied celebrities by jumping out of a moving vehicles and dancing in the road.

Man Claims to be a Minority Business Owner After DNA Test Shows He’s 4% African

An insurance agent claims he should qualify as a minority business owner, because a DNA test shows he’s 4 percent African — enough, he believes, to make him “a certified black man.”

Ralph Taylor knows on the outside he looks like an average white guy, but he is trying using the results from his AncestryByDNA test to bolster his business in Lynnwood, Washington.

“I’ve always known that I’m multiracial,” the 55-year-old declared to the Washington Post.

The 2010 test showed that he’s 90 percent European, 6 percent indigenous American and 4 percent sub-Saharan African.

“I’m a certified black man. I’m certified black in all 50 states,” he said. “But the federal government doesn’t recognize me.”

Taylor is now in the midst of a legal battle with Washington state and the federal government for ultimately denying him the minority business owner qualification for his Orion Insurance Group. The designation would give him a leg up in nabbing government contracts.

His case — which poses the complex question of how race is defined — is pending before the 9th Circuit US Court of Appeals.

Escaped Inmate Caught While Ordering Sweet Tea at Restaurant

A Florida correctional inmate who escaped a work site on Monday was captured after he was reportedly spotted ordering sweet tea nearby.

Taylor Fender, 23, walked away from a work crew in Interlachen and bought clothes at a dollar store, according to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. He was spotted by an “observant” passerby who alerted police.

Fender, who’s currently serving a 5-year prison term at the Putnam Corrections Institute in East Palatka, reportedly then made his way over to Poppi’s Restaurant, where he ordered a drink of sweet tea — just as a deputy arrived at the restaurant for lunch.

“As the deputy walked into the restaurant, a [be on the look out] with the suspect’s description was released by dispatchers. The suspect had ordered and paid for a sweet tea,” the sheriff’s office said.

Fender was arrested without incident and transported back to the correctional facility. An escape charge against Fender was sent to the state attorney’s office.

The sheriff’s office joked that Southerners may feel that Fender, who left the restaurant without receiving his order, “committed the bigger crime” by leaving his tea on the counter.

91 Prisoners Escape Brazilian Jail, Flee Through Tunnel

A group of 91 prisoners escaped a jail in northeastern Brazil on Thursday by fleeing through a 30-meter (100-foot) tunnel, Brazilian media said.

Nine of the inmates have been found, while police are attempting to catch the remaining 82 who disappeared from the prison in Parnamirim, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, according to the Agencia Brasil news agency.

The incident comes just months after 56 inmates escaped from the Alcacuz jail, also in Rio Grande do Norte, during a bloody battle between two rival gangs in which 26 people were massacred.

It was part of an unprecedented wave of violence at the beginning of the year in the country’s overcrowded and dilapidated prisons, particularly in the northern region bordering Peru and Colombia, a key route for trafficking cocaine to Europe.

Parnamirim prison was hugely overcrowded, with 589 detainees in a facility designed for 382, according to figures from local judiciary services.

With 622,000 detainees registered by the justice ministry at the end of 2014, Brazil has the world’s fourth-largest prison population, behind the United States, China and Russia.

The country’s prisons are at 167 percent of capacity.

Loss of DirecTV service prompted man, 39, to beat girlfriend, 78, police say

A Florida man allegedly beat his 78-year-old girlfriend this week, claiming she failed to pay their DirecTV bill, resulting in a loss of service, authorities said.

David Mann, 39, was arrested for battery of a person over the age of 65, the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office said.

Mann allegedly threw the victim onto a bed in their home and choked her during an argument, FOX30 Jacksonville reported. The suspect was apparently upset the DirecTV service had been turned off.

The victim called police after the argument ended, the station reported.

Deputies entered the Brycesville home and discovered ammunition, which Mann, a convicted felon, was not permitted to be in the presence of, police said. It was unclear whether the ammunition belonged to Mann or the victim.

Police said they additionally charged Mann with possession of a weapon.
