A 51-year-old grandmother punched repeatedly by a California Highway cop on the side of a freeway in an incident caught on video will receive $1.5 million under a settlement, and the officer has agreed to resign. The punching occurred after motorists’ 911 calls reported that Marlene Pinnock, who is bipolar, was walking along the freeway and the responding officer pulled her from traffic, according to a legal document in the case. A statement from the California Highway Patrol said that Officer Daniel Andrew, who joined the CHP in 2012 and has been on paid administrative leave since the incident, “has elected to resign.” He could still be charged criminally in the case.

“One of the things we wanted to make sure of was that she was provided for in a manner that accommodated her unique situation in life and that the officer was not going to be an officer anymore, and we secured those things,” Pinnock’s lawyer says. The July 1 video of Andrew punching…. Read on…

Injured Biker Saved by … Mike Tyson?

Boxer blocked traffic, soothed crash victim

A Las Vegas man injured in a motorcycle crash last week had to take a photo to make sure he wasn’t hallucinating the person who came to his aid: Mike Tyson. Ryan Chesley tells TMZ that after a taxi cut him off on a freeway, sending him flying off his motorcycle, the boxer and three friends blocked off traffic, ordered bystanders not to touch him, and sat with him until paramedics arrived. The boxer spoke to the injured man softly to keep him from going into shock, Chesley’s lawyer says, and when paramedics arrived, he “just left, like some kind of superhero.”

Chesley, who suffered injuries including broken bones, torn ligaments, and nerve damage, sent the boxer a….http://www.newser.com/story/196264/injured-biker-saved-by-mike-tyson.html

Kennedy’s assassination, Jacqueline Kennedy often re-constructed the moments before his death, convinced she could have saved him. In a new book about those months, biographer Barbara Leaming reveals that Jackie was suffering from “what we’d now call post-traumatic stress disorder,” according to an excerpt of the book printed in vanity fair
 She couldn’t bear to look at any images of her husband, cried often, drank a lot of vodka, and had flashbacks and nightmares so bad she’d wake up screaming—when she was able to fall asleep at all. If she had been looking right instead of left, she once reasoned, “I could have pulled him down, and then the second shot would not have hit him.”She also agonized over..

The evening began innocently enough. Rice, 27, and 26-year-old Janay celebrated Valentine’s Day at the Revel Hotel Casino in Atlantic City with two other couples, close friends who were a regular part of their social circle. They had dinner and wine, then went to the casino’s main bar, The Social, where they split at least one bottle of Patron Tequila, Rice’s favorite liquor.
By 2 a.m., Ray and Janay were intoxicated and heatedly arguing as he followed her into a hotel elevator. According to two sources, the couple fought about the guest list for their upcoming wedding as well as text messages Rice had received that night from a young woman, a Ravens employee.

I completely understand Janay being upset. But I’m also sure that wasn’t the first time Janay suspected Rice of cheating. What’s  the point of starting a big argument… Read on…

Staff closed her tab down and asked her to leave, but while McCullough doesn’t deny drinking, she says she only had a couple of sips, that she was guzzling water, and that the rest of the beer—and the shot of Fireball whisky in front of her—was for when she finished nursing, she tells WTKR via Fox.

McCullough says the problems began when a manager came over to ask her to be more “discreet” about breastfeeding her baby, KHOS notes.
