Antonio Brown Released on Bond After Turning Himself in on Burglary and Battery Charges

NFL free agent Antonio Brown was released on bail Friday after a night in a Florida jail, where he turned himself in to face charges that he and his trainer attacked the driver of a moving truck that carried some of his possessions from California. Former NFL player Antonio Brown has surrendered to the Broward County Jail just one day after a warrant was issued for his arrest, according to CNN affiliate WFOR. (Credit: Broward County Sheriff’s Office via CNN Wire) Broward County Judge Corey Amanda Cawthon set a $110,000 bond and imposed conditions including surrendering his passport, wearing a GPS monitor, possessing no weapons or ammunition, and agreeing to a mental health evaluation and random drug testing. Brown was released a few hours after the hearing, his lawyer said. Brown, 31, had appeared via video in a green jail outfit, with his wrists shackled. He spoke only to answer the judge’s questions. Prosecutors had sought no bail, pointing out that the wide receiver is a wealthy sports figure who is a risk of flight if released. They noted that police had been called to…

Clippers Leonard’s 1st Triple-Double Sends Clippers Past Heat 122-117

MIAMI (AP) — Kawhi Leonard has two NBA championships, two NBA Finals MVP awards, four All-Star selections and a string of other accolades. And now, one triple-double. Unbelievable as it sounds — and really, the Miami Heat could not believe it — Leonard got a triple-double for the first time Friday night. He scored 26 of his 33 points after halftime, finished with 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and carried the Los Angeles Clippers past the Heat 122-117. “What do you mean, first triple-double? Of his career? Wow,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “That is a surprise. He’s as complete a player (as there is) in this league.” Leonard actually got the triple-double twice. He had it in the third quarter, briefly: What was originally his 10th rebound was taken away after the stat crew gave one play a closer review. He then got it for real on a rebound with 3:55 remaining. Clippers coach Doc Rivers was given the game ball in the locker room afterward, then dribbled it once before flipping it to Leonard as a keepsake. Leonard raised it over his head,…

Rapper YG Arrested on Suspicion of Robbery After Search Warrant Served Near Chatsworth: LASD

Rapper YG faces possible robbery charges after being arrested in the Chatsworth area on Friday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The 29-year-old, whose real name is Keenon Jackson, was apprehended after deputies served a search warrant in the 22000 block of Zaltana Street around 4 a.m., according to Deputy Grace Medrano. The warrant was served as part of an “ongoing criminal investigation,” she stated. YG was booked on suspicion of robbery at the Men’s Central Jail near downtown L.A. and was on $250,000, according to Medrano. Inmate records indicate the rapper bailed out shortly after 9 p.m. He’s due in court next Tuesday. YG’s arrest comes about six months after deputies raided the sprawling Hollywood Hills mansion he was leasing. The July 2019 raid led to one arrest, and several others were detained. YG was not home at the time. Investigators told KTLA at the time that the investigation was connected to a pursuit and shootout that occurred in Compton on July 3. The incident involved a black Cadillac Escalade registered to YG. One person, an innocent pedestrian identified as 65-year-old…

Hundreds of Military Explosives Found at Stockton Home Were Replicas

Hundreds of military explosive devices found at a California home were replicas, experts determined Friday. Twenty homes were evacuated for nearly 24 hours after Stockton police officers found the explosives Thursday when they went to the home to check on a man who reportedly died of natural causes, police said. The resident, 71-year-old William White Jr., was a collector of military memorabilia, Air Force Lt. Col. Glenn Cameron told KTLA sister station KTXL in Sacramento. “The very vast majority were absolutely made to look like they were real,” said Cameron, who’s stationed at Travis Air Force Base. An ordnance disposal team from the base was called to help deal with the devices and announced on Friday afternoon that they were non-explosive replicas. Evacuations were lifted at about 3:30 p.m. The team also found 25 small flares and fuses that would be removed, the station said. “Replicas are not necessarily illegal. You just have to be making sure that you can show that it’s a replica and it’s safe,” Cameron said. Police said White didn’t have a military background, KCRA-TV reported.

Magnitude 4.6 Earthquake Rattles Barstow Area

A magnitude 4.6 earthquake struck north of Barstow Friday evening, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake hit the Mojave Desert at about 7:03 p.m. with an epicenter just over 17 miles northeast of Barstow and a depth of roughly 2.4 miles, USGS said. The quake felt like a “good jolt,” but there were no reports of damage or injuries, San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman said in an email to the Associated Press. USGS says a ShakeAlert was sent out about 7 seconds after the quake’s origin time, which wasn’t enough warning for Barstow residents but gave people in San Bernardino about 25 seconds to prepare. People reported feeling the shaking as far as Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Ridgecrest, which has been rattled by a swarm of quakes following two major ones last summer. Friday’s temblor was centered just over 50 miles southwest of Ridgecrest, but famed seismologist Lucy Jones said it wasn’t on the same fault. Instead, it ruptured about halfway between the fault involved in the Ridgecrest quakes and another one on which the 7.3 magnitude Landers earthquake occurred…

Adam Schiff, Impeachment Managers Finish Opening Arguments Friday

Closing out their case, House Democrats warned Friday in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial that the president will persist in abusing his power and endangering American democracy unless Congress intervenes to remove him before the 2020 election. They then implored Republican senators to allow new testimony before rendering a final verdict. “Give America a fair trial,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead Democratic impeachment manager. “She’s worth it.” Schiff delivered Democrats’ final remarks in the Senate trial after three days of methodical and impassioned arguments detailing charges that Trump abused power by asking Ukraine for politically motivated probes of political rivals, then obstructed Congress’ investigation into the matter. The president’s lawyers get their first chance to defend him Saturday, and are expected to argue he acted appropriately. The opening arguments appear to have done nothing to shake Republicans’ support for Trump or persuade enough centrist GOP lawmakers to call for new witnesses, including Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton. In his final appeal to lawmakers and a divided nation, Schiff argued that a guilty verdict in the Senate is the only remedy left to curb what he…

House Given Recording of Trump Calling for Ambassador’s Ouster

An associate of Rudy Giuliani has provided congressional investigators with a recording of President Donald Trump saying he wanted to get rid of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, whose removal a year later emerged as an issue in the president’s impeachment, his attorney told The Associated Press on Friday. The president was speaking to a small group during a dinner in April 2018 at his hotel in Washington, when he demanded the removal of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. The group included Lev Parnas, the Giuliani associate whose lawyer turned over the recording to the House Intelligence Committee. The House panel’s chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is helping lead the impeachment proceedings against Trump. The recording, which was first reported by ABC News, appears to contradict the president’s statements that he did not know Parnas, a key figure in the investigation. It came to light as Democrats continue to press for witnesses and other evidence to be considered during the Senate impeachment trial. ABC News reported that a speaker who appears to be Trump says on the recording, “Get rid of her! Get her out tomorrow. I…

36 Million People Now Under Travel Restrictions as China Rushes to Build Hospital for Virus Victims

China reported Saturday a jump in the number of people infected with a new virus to 1,287 with 41 deaths, as it expanded its lockdown to an unprecedented 36 million people and rushed to build a prefabricated, 1,000-bed hospital for victims. The commission said the latest tally comes from 29 provinces across China, including 237 patients in serious condition. All 41 deaths have been in China, including 39 in Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak, one in Hebei and one in Heilongjiang. Meanwhile, France announced that three people had fallen ill with the virus — the disease’s first appearance in Europe. And the United States reported its second case, involving a Chicago woman in her 60s who was hospitalized in isolation after returning from China. The outbreak cast a pall over Lunar New Year, the country’s biggest, most festive holiday, which falls on Saturday. Authorities in Beijing and other cities canceled many public celebrations and other events. On Wall Street, stocks slumped amid fears over the widening crisis, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average losing 170 points and the S&P 500 posting its worst…

2nd Case of Wuhan Coronavirus in U.S. Is Confirmed in Chicago; 63 People Being Monitored in 22 States

A second case of Wuhan coronavirus in the United States has been identified in Chicago, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday in a press briefing. The patient is a Chicago resident in her 60s. She is in isolation at a hospital in Chicago, and is in stable condition. The patient flew from Wuhan to Chicago on January 13. She was not ill while traveling and health authorities do not think she spread the virus during that time. Health authorities say she has had limited close contacts since returning to Chicago; she has not used public transit, attended large gatherings or had extended close contact with anyone outside her home. The first confirmed US case, announced Tuesday, is a man in his 30s in Washington state. The Snohomish County resident is hospitalized at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Washington, where he is in stable condition. He arrived at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on January 15, before any health screenings began at US airports. Sixty-three people from 22 states are under investigation for the virus, health officials said. Eleven of the 63 tested…
