Woman texted “driving drunk woo” just before fatal crash

From CBSNews.com:

MIAMI – A woman charged with DUI manslaughter for a fatal crash sent text messages to her boyfriend that read “Driving drunk woo” and “I’ll be dead thanks to you” minutes before the accident, reports the Miami Herald.

On Thursday, prosecutors released new evidence, including a string of text messages, involving that deadly crash on August 14, 2013.

According to CBS Miami, Mila Dago, then 22, was behind the wheel of a rented Smart Car when she reportedly blew through a red light at around 4:45 a.m. and t-boned a truck driven by 51-year old Benjamin Byrum.

Dago and Byrum survived the crash, but Dago’s passenger — her friend, 22-year old Irina Reinoso — was killed.

Prosecutors say at the time of the crash Dago was in the middle of a nasty break up with her boyfriend. As she and her friends bar-hopped, she fired off a series of angry texts to him.

Texas councilman leaves mic on in bathroom

Didn’t this happen in The Naked Gun?

The good news for one city councilman in Georgetown, Texas: Few people were in attendance at a meeting last week when he excused himself to go to the bathroom and left his microphone on, broadcasting his experience to the council chamber.

The bad news: Hundreds of thousands of people have seen and heard what he did, thanks to a video of the council meeting.

Even worse news: Based on the time between him flushing the toilet and how he returned only seconds later, it appears he didn’t wash his hands.

Gunmen killed in foiled attack on Texas anti-Islam event

Sigh:

Two gunmen were shot and killed yesterday outside an exhibition of cartoon depictions of the prophet Mohammed.

The assailants jumped out of a car at about 7pm yesterday, according to reports, and opened fire at a security guard outside the Curtis Culwell Center.

The guard, identified as Bruce Joiner, was shot in the leg during the exchange. His injuries are not considered life-threatening. Police shot and killed the attackers, Garland city officials said in a statement released to the press.

The exhibit was closed and the area locked down, with attendees evacuated to a nearby high school. The American Freedom Defense Initiative, a group dedicated to preventing the “Islamization of America”, hosted the Mohammed toons exhibit.

BPD Commissioner: Sergeant ‘Wrong’ For Telling Man Not To Videotape Cops’ Interaction With Teen

From WBUR.org:

A Boston police sergeant is facing an internal affairs probe on claims that he intimidated a man who was videotaping a police investigation in Roxbury.

Police on Friday will meet with the man who was videotaping to offer an apology.

Police were responding to a report of kids playing with guns on Edgewood Street in Roxbury. They apprehended a 14-year-old carrying what turned out to be a very realistic-looking fake gun.

The video shows Sgt. Henry Staines, an 18-year veteran of Boston’s police force, twice approaching 61-year-old Lawrence Dugan as he videotapes the scene with his phone.

Freddie Gray death: murder charge announced against police officer

From The Guardian:

A criminal prosecution for murder will be brought over the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, the city’s top prosecutor announced on Friday morning.

State’s attorney Marilyn Mosby said Gray’s death was a homicide.

Officer Caesar Goodson was charged with second-degree murder, while charges including manslaughter and misconduct in public office were brought against five other officers.

All six officers involved were charged. Warrants have been issued for their arrest.

Man who Recorded Freddie Gray Video Arrested After Voicing Fears That Police Were Trying to Intimidate Him

He was eventually released after two hours without them pressing any charges. So just your garden variety police intimidation.

The man who recorded one of two videos showing Baltimore cops dragging a screaming Freddie Gray into the back of a police van was arrested Thursday night, two days after voicing concerns that police were trying to intimidate him by plastering his photo all over the news, saying they wanted to interview him.

Unlike the woman who recorded the other video, Kevin Moore was not afraid to show his face to the cameras, describing to reporters how cops had Gray’s legs pulled up behind his neck as they held him face down on the ground with one cop planting a knee on the back of Gray’s neck.

Once his interview went viral, police put out a notice that they wanted to speak to him to help with their “investigation,” which he understood as an attempt to intimidate him into silence.

After all, he had already spoken to police about what he had seen during the Freddie Gray arrest. And he was aware of what New York City police officers did to Ramsey Orta, the man who recorded NYPD detective Daniel Pantaleo.

On Tuesday, he posted the following on Facebook:

OK y’all everyone by now know that I spoke up for Freddie and recorded all I could. But I would greatly appreciate if y’all could stop posting pics of me plz it’s very uncomfortable knowing that the law is looking for me!!Thank y’all(Kev)

The law caught up to him Thursday night, handcuffing him and two friends at gunpoint during a traffic stop that involved two police helicopters, one armored car, a police SUV and plenty of military looking cops with guns.
