Woman assaults “toxic tush” defendant
Brunetta Brown, 50 was charged with simple battery after police reviewed footage from a Telemundo talk show in which she was allegedly seen throwing a plastic syringe at Corey Eubanks, 40. Eubanks has been free on bail since he and Oneal Ron Morris were charged in connection with “unlicensed practice of a healthcare profession.” They have been accused of injecting a toxic mixture into customers who sought fuller figures. One of those customers was Shaquanda Brown, the daughter of Brunetta. Arguments broke out during and after the show was taped.
Jets player: Eight baby mamas and can’t remember kids’ names
NY Jets player Antonio Cromartie, 27, has 10 children with 8 different women — two are with his wife who is pregnant with twins due in November. And while this baby-making machine can’t remember the names of all of his children, their moms are trying to do a reality show about the clan. For now, he has refused to sign off on his kids appearing on TV. By the way, four of the children are four-years-old and three of them are three. All but one of the mothers receives $3,500 each month. Guess that’s why they have become the best of friends.
Florida residents shocked by grisly double homicide
A passerby’s horrifying find along a Florida trail — the bodies of two teenagers engulfed in flames — has shocked residents and spurred relentless questions about how and why someone killed the close friends. The victims, Nicholas Presha, 16, and Jeremy Stewart, 18 had to be identified using dental records. One of the teens, Presha, is the son of a retired Orange County Sheriff’s Office captain who is now a detective with the state attorney’s office for Orange and Osceola counties, which will ultimately handle any prosecution in the case. Both teens were involved in the theft of a green Mini Cooper convertible in January and charged with grand theft. Investigators say they haven’t found a relationship between that incident and the deaths.
Mother accused of running scalding-hot water on crying newborn
A Florida mom was arrested after she allegedly put her seven-week-old baby under scalding-hot water as a form of punishment for his excessive crying. Chekayla Dampier from Port Richey, allegedly ran the water from the tap in her bathroom and held the baby under for two to three minutes, according to the Pasco sheriff’s department. She took the baby to a local clinic to be treated for burns, but the extent of injuries were so severe that the child was transported by helicopter to Tampa General Pediatric Burn Unit. The baby remains in critical condition. Sheriff’s forensics took the temperature of the hot water and it registered at 142 degrees.
Six-year old girl handcuffed for misbehaving
Milledgeville, Georgia’s acting police chief, Dray Swicord, said that he stands by an officer’s decision to handcuff an elementary school student for safety last week after she allegedly threw a tantrum. Swicord said the arresting officer is not under investigation for his actions. Kindergartner Salecia Johnson is accused of tearing items off the walls and throwing furniture. She was crying in the principal’s office at Creekside Elementary before police arrived last week. The report says the girl knocked over a shelf that injured the principal. It also says she was seen biting the door knob of the office and jumping on the paper shredder. And, it says, she attempted to break a glass frame above the shredder. The police took the child to the police station where she was charged with simple assault and damage to property. Because of her age, she will not be prosecuted.
