Jane Fonda Arrested in Climate Change Protest on U.S. Capitol Steps

Jane Fonda Arrested in Climate Change Protest on U.S. Capitol Steps

Jane Fonda was arrested by Capitol police Friday — and it’s part of her plan to address climate change.

The 81-year-old actress and longtime activist was seen being led away from the steps of the Capitol during a climate change protest with her hands tied behind her back. Fifteen other activists were also arrested.

Fonda recently moved to Washington to host teach-ins and weekly rallies about climate change, according to an interview with The Los Angeles Times published Thursday.

In the interview, Fonda says she decided to move to D.C. and requested time off from her Netflix show, “Grace and Frankie,” after reading about the work of climate activists like Greta Thunberg.

In a video of Fonda’s arrest, activists can be heard yelling, “We love you, Jane!” as the actress is led away by police.

San Diego Padres Pitcher Jacob Nix Arrested in Arizona for Trespassing Through Doggie Door

San Diego Padres Pitcher Jacob Nix Arrested in Arizona for Trespassing Through Doggie Door

A doggie door plus a taser added up to a very bad night for a San Diego Padres starting pitcher in Arizona over the weekend.

Right-hander Jacob Nix, 23, was arrested in the early morning hours on Sunday after he attempted to enter a home that was not his through a doggie door.

The resident found Nix trying to crawl through the door and, according to police reports out of Peoria, Arizona, kicked Nix once in the face.

Nix was then pulled back through the doggie door by another Padres minor leaguer, Tom Cosgrove, and the two tried to leave the area. Police said the resident called 911, reached through the doggie door, and deployed a taser that hit Nix in the upper back.

Nix and Cosgrove were taken into custody a short time later not far from the victim’s home.

In an interview with police, Nix said he believed the home was his but, for a reason he could not explain, he went to the backyard and tried to enter the home through the doggie door — even though Nix said his residence does not have a doggie door.

Nix was charged with criminal trespassing. When asked for comment the Padres released the following statement:

“We are aware of the alleged incident involving Jacob Nix last Sunday in Arizona. We take this matter seriously and have been in contact with the Commissioner’s Office and local authorities. Due to the ongoing legal proceedings, we will not have any further comment at this time.” 

One of the Padres’ top-30 prospects, Nix is in Peoria playing with the Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League. The player started nine games for the Padres in 2018 and showed promise but missed most of this season with injuries

Parents Arrested in Death of 4-Year-Old Palmdale Boy, Sources Say

Parents Arrested in Death of 4-Year-Old Palmdale Boy, Sources Say

What to Know

  • Deputies who responded to the family’s home in July were told he had drowned in the apartment complex pool

  • Injuries on Noah’s body prompted an investigation into his death, which investigators called suspicious

  • As the I-Team has documented, DCFS has been part of Noah’s life since he was born

The parents of a 4-year-old Palmdale boy, whose death in July was deemed suspicious by deputies who responded to his family’s home, have been arrested, multiple sources tell NBC4.

The arrest comes more than two months after the parents of Noah Cuatro told Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department deputies that the boy drowned at their apartment complex pool. 

“The criminal arrest of Noah Cuatro’s biological parents is an important step forward in this ongoing case. Since the moment I learned of Noah’s tragic death, I committed to hold all negligent parties accountable. I’ve ensured full transparency during this investigation. We’ve highlighted areas to improve and have already implemented meaningful reforms. I’m grateful to the Sheriff’s Department detectives who worked around the clock investigating Noah’s death. I’ll continue to be engaged on this case with the Sheriff and the District Attorney,” Supervisor Kathryn Barger said.

Deputies who responded to the home where the boy lived said that injuries on Noah’s body prompted an investigation into his death that they called suspicious. Noah was airlifted to Palmdale Regional Medical Center and then to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where he died on July 6.

What led to the boy’s death remains unclear, but deputies said his injuries were not consistent with a drowning. An autopsy is still pending.

Details regarding charges in the case were not immediately available.

His parents were questioned at the time, but not arrested. 

A removal order that could have taken the boy out of the home was issued in May, but never executed. The order was submitted to a court and approved by a judge.

The boy died about two months after the order was issued. 

As the I-Team has documented, DCFS has been part of Noah’s life since he was born. 

Earlier this month, the NBC4 I-Team reported that a new report from the Office of Child Protection outlined a social worker’s concerns. The worker who asked the judge for the removal order told a judge that Noah’s parents were not “compliant” or “truthful.”

A relative of Noah’s mother said the boy’s parents loved him and the children very much, insisting that the family’s home life is not being represented accurately.

NBC4’s Jonathan Lloyd contributed to this report.

One Person Arrested After Attempted Bank of America Robbery in Glendale, Police Say

An attempted bank robbery in Glendale Tuesday ended with a man in custody and a bomb-sniffing dog being brought in to check out a bag or backpack that was left behind.

A suspected robber entered the Bank of America in the 3800 block of San Fernando Road about 3:55 p.m. and presented a demand note, according to Tahnee Lightfoot of the Glendale Police Department.

The suspected robber fled the bank and was taken into custody, but he left behind a bag or backpack, so a bomb-sniffing dog was brought in from the Pasadena Police Department to check the item, Lightfoot said.

Suspect Arrested, But Search Continues for Monrovia Kidnapping Victim

Suspect Arrested, But Search Continues for Monrovia Kidnapping Victim

Investigators continued to search Wednesday for a 31-year-old woman who was kidnapped in Monrovia as a video surfaced that appears to show the man suspected in her disappearance at a bar hours before he was arrested Tuesday morning in a downtown Los Angeles SWAT standoff.

The search for Amanda Kathleen Custer began Monday morning after the Monrovia Police Department responded to a domestic violence report around 8:15 a.m. in the 600 block of Vaquero Road and found evidence of an apparent assault, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. 

Custer’s mother reported seeing 27-year-old Robert Anthony Camou put her daughter in the rear hatch of his Toyota Prius before driving off.  Her mother told NBCLA Wednesday morning that she is distraught. 

She also said she is aware of videos that appear to show Camou at an open mic event later that day performing an expletive-laced rap that includes the phrase, “I killed my b—- and buried that b—- in the… dirt.”

Police Use Tear Gas to Arrest Kidnapping Suspect

The Los Angeles Times reported that investigators are reviewing the videos.

The man who recorded the video told NBCLA he did not initially recognize the man who appeared at the downtown LA bar. A friend later recognized him as the man arrested in the downtown LA standoff, he said. Michael Moore said the man asked him where he was posting the freestyle rap videos and did not seem bothered when he told him “everywhere.”

After the rap, the man walked back into the crowd, which appeared stunned, and spent about 25 minutes at the bar, Moore said.

The focus of the investigation turned to downtown Los Angeles overnight Tuesday when police found the suspect inside a Toyota Prius that had been sought in connection with the crime. After an hourslong SWAT standoff, Camou finally surrendered at about 7:45 a.m. when officers shattered the rear window and tossed canisters of tear gas inside the car. 

No one else was in the Prius.  

Camou was arrested on an outstanding domestic violence warrant. He was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday for allegedly violating to terms of his electronically monitored house arrest.

Camou and Custer were in a dating relationship for about two years and police had been called to Camou’s home numerous times in the past because of domestic incidents involving the two, according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, which reported that Custer does not live at the house.

‘Blow This Motherf—– Up’: Woman Arrested for Trashing Swedish Embassy Over A$AP Rocky’s Detention

'Blow This Motherf----- Up': Woman Arrested for Trashing Swedish Embassy Over A$AP Rocky's Detention

A woman upset over rapper A$AP Rocky’s detention in Sweden showed up at the Embassy of Sweden complex in D.C. and threatened to “blow this motherf—– up,” screamed obscenities at staff and kicked over furniture before she was arrested by the Secret Service, an affidavit obtained by the News4 I-Team shows.

Rebecca Kanter was arrested by Secret Service agents July 23, the second time she allegedly caused a disturbance at the House of Sweden at 2900 K Street NW.

In the first incident, a day earlier, Kanter allegedly threw liquid from a glass Coca-Cola bottle at the doorway and threatened to blow up the building. She then left before authorities could intervene, although the Secret Service issued a “Be on the Lookout” for her, the affidavit said.

The following afternoon, the affidavit says Kanter returned and was able to get through security. She began “cursing and screaming” at staff and a student tour group and was “making statements” about A$AP Rocky, the affidavit said.

Kanter then allegedly kicked over a teepee that was on display, as well as a coffee table in the lobby.

When ordered to leave, she sat on the floor and said, “Call the police, I’m not leaving,” the affidavit said. Secret Service officers responded and arrested her.

The affidavit also says Kanter made several posts on social media, including one that asked, “why isn’t it breaking news that I defiled the House of Sweden last night, that I vandalized the Wold Bank, that I vandalized the IMF … why aren’t I getting press for ASAP.”

Earlier this month, A$AP Rocky — who was in Sweden to perform at a music festival — and his body guards were ordered held for two weeks after being detained as police investigated a June 30 fight in downtown Stockholm.

Swedish prosecutors on Thursday charged the rapper with assault.

Videos published on social media showed someone being violently thrown onto the ground by A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers. It was not clear who else was involved. “This was a self-defense situation,” his defense lawyer Slobodan Jovicic told reporters.

As for Kanter, she’s now out on bond, but a judge ordered her to stay away from the embassy. She is facing charges of willfully injuring and damaging property of a foreign government and refusing to depart a foreign embassy.

News4 is awaiting comment from her public defender.

Kanter has a preliminary hearing July 31.

R. Kelly Arrested on Fed Child Porn Charges, Indicted in NYC, Illinois

R. Kelly Arrested on Fed Child Porn Charges, Indicted in NYC, Illinois

UPDATE: R. Kelly Indicted in NYC on Federal Kidnapping, Racketeering and Child Sex Charges — Read the Full Court Document Here

Singer R. Kelly was arrested on federal sex charges Thursday night nearly five months after he was released on bail for additional sexual abuse charges brought by Illinois prosecutors, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office said.

The 52-year-old was arrested in Chicago by Homeland Security Investigations agents and NYPD Public Safety Task Force, officials told News 4. R. Kelly had stepped out for a smoke and to walk his dog “Believe” when he was taken into custody around 7 p.m. local time, a law enforcement source familiar with the case said.

He was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago, according to the Federal Prisons Bureau website.

Steve Greenberg, an attorney for Kelly confirmed Thursday’s arrest, adding “the agents were courteous and professional, as was Mr. Kelly.” 

“The conduct alleged appears to largely be the same as the conduct previously alleges against Mr. Kelly in his current State indictment and his former State charges that he was acquitted of,” Greenberg said. “Most, if not all of the conduct alleged, is decades old.” 

There are separate federal indictments filed in both Chicago and Brooklyn — and no victim overlap in the cases, authorities said. Kelly made his initial court appearance Thursday night.

An indictment unsealed in the Eastern District of New York Friday charges him with racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and sexual exploitation of a child. Read the full NYC indictment here.  

A 13-count indictment was handed down Thursday in federal court for the Northern District of Illinois and includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice. 

Kelly did not enter a plea for the Illinois or Eastern District of New York indictments. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday for the Illinois indictment, and the issues of how he will be detained and moved to New York will be addressed that day as well.

Kelly and his lawyers hope the singer will be released from custody. Federal prosecutors said in a detention memo filed in Illinois Friday that Kelly should be granted no bail pending trial.

Greenberg said Kelly already has a team of “outstanding” federal litigators and was not surprised by the new charges. 

“He and his lawyers look forward to his day in court, to the truth coming out and to his vindication from what has been an unprecedented assault by others for their own personal gain. Most importantly he looks forward to being able to continue to making wonderful music and perform for his legions of fans that believe him.” 

The singer’s crisis manager, Darrell Johnson, says his legal team was expecting the indictment to happen but he doesn’t know what the charges are yet. Kelly, whose legal name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, was in high spirit as he awaits his trial, according to Johnson.

“Mr. Kelly has declared his innocence from day one,” said Johnson, who says he has been working with the R&B star for six months. “I’ve seen nothing, and I do mean nothing, that would lead to any type of guilt.”

Andrea Kelly, the singer’s ex-wife, had no comment following the arrest, her rep said.

The 52-year-old has been the subject of different sexual abuse allegations for nearly two decades, with some of the alleged acts dating back to 1998.

Back in February, Kelly was charged with aggravated sexual abuse involving four women, three of whom were minors when the alleged abuse occurred. He pleaded not guilty and was released from Chicago’s Cook County Jail after posting bail.

A jury in 2008 acquitted Kelly of child pornography charges stemming from a video showing him having sex with a girl as young as 13, prosecutors claimed at the time. Kelly faced 15 years in prison for that charge, but the young woman in that claim denied it was her and did not testify.

Former Cowboy Josh Brent Tased, Arrested by Police

Former Cowboy Josh Brent Tased, Arrested by Police

The former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman charged with intoxication manslaughter in the 2012 drunken driving crash that killed one of his teammates faces three charges, including assault against a public servant, after in incident in Coppell, Texas Sunday, police say.

Coppell police said officers were called to perform a welfare check on a man, later identified as Josh Brent, in the 800 block of MacArthur Boulevard. Police said a caller told them he saw a man sitting in the grass and talking to himself, and that he was worried for the man’s safety.

Brent appeared to be intoxicated when officers arrived, police said. When officers told Brent he would be arrested for public intoxication, he became uncooperative, according to Coppell police.

Officers initially tried to verbally deescalate the situation, but Brent ignored their commands, police said. Eventually an officer tased Brent, after which he was arrested.

Police said Brent later admitted he was intoxicated. He was taken to the Carrollton Jail for booking, police said.

Later Sunday, Brent was additionally charged with assault against a public servant and resisting arrest.

In 2014, Brent was convicted of intoxication manslaughter after a 2012 crash that killed his Cowboys teammate and close friend Jerry Brown.

Brent was sentenced to 10 years probation and 180 days in jail for the crash. He played parts of four seasons in the NFL, all for the Cowboys.

Tattooed and Shirtless Man Arrested After Dangerous and Erratic Stolen SUV Chase

Tattooed and Shirtless Man Arrested After Dangerous and Erratic Stolen SUV Chase

The shirtless driver of a reportedly stolen SUV was taken into custody after leading police on a dangerous and erratic cat-and-mouse chase on Los Angeles streets and freeways Thursday afternoon.

After playing cat-and-mouse with police by repeatedly stopping and starting the vehicle, prentending like he was going to give up, the driver made several dangerous moves, nearly hitting cars as he sped through intersections and through red lights.

The SUV came to an end after the driver ran across a spike strip, carrying it away with the car and doing a series of 360 degree turns to try and free it from the vehicle. A police SUV performed a PIT maneuver, spinning it around and into another bystander’s SUV.

The man then climbed out of the damaged SUV’s window before being taken into custody by officers.

A previous PIT maneuver attempt failed, with the driver speeding away in the opposite direction.

The driver was previously speeding on the 110 Freeway before exiting near Century Boulevard. He repeatedly entered and exited the freeway, weaving through neighborhoods near the Banc of California stadium.

Several times he stopped to talk to people on the side of residential streets before pulling off again as police approached.

There appeared to be only one person in the car.
