George Zimmerman arrested again in Florida

Monday, 18 November 2013 14:28 Published in Local News

APOPKA, Fla. (AP) - Officials say George Zimmerman has been arrested in Florida.

A Seminole County Sheriff's Office statement says Zimmerman was arrested Monday afternoon after deputies responded to a disturbance call at a house in Apopka, about 15 miles northwest of Orlando. Zimmerman will be transported and booked into jail.

The statement provided few other details, and it was not immediately known what charges he faced.

Monday's arrest was just the latest legal trouble for the former neighborhood watch volunteer, who was acquitted earlier this year of all charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman and his estranged wife were involved in a domestic dispute in September. Police said no charges were filed against either of them because of a lack of evidence.

That dispute took place just days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers.

 

In traffic stop chaos, NM officer fires at van

Monday, 18 November 2013 13:47 Published in National News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A pair of New Mexico state police officers are under investigation and a mother and her 14-year-old son are facing charges after a routine traffic stop turned to chaos with the teen physically confronting one officer and another firing shots at a minivan carrying children.

Details of the recent stop emerged when KRQE-TV obtained dashboard camera video of the police cruiser that pulled the family of six over for speeding near the northern New Mexico tourist town of Taos.

The Oct. 28 footage showed driver Oriana Farrell disobey the officer's orders and drive off during the stop.

The 39-year-old Tennessee mother was pulled over again and the video shows two of her five children get out of the vehicle to confront the officer.

The mother and teenage son were arrested after a brief chase. She has since been released. It's unclear whether her son remains in custody.

Farrell's attorney didn't immediately return a call.

Monday, 18 November 2013 12:50 Published in Local News

Police officers were not able to save two people from a fiery crash over the weekend.

The single-car accident happened on I-170 on Sunday. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 27-year-old Nicholas Nelson's car left the road, hit a median cable and sign, then flipped over and caught fire. An off-duty St. Louis County police officer and Berkley officers tried to put out the fire and rescue the occupants, but failed.

Nelson and passenger Ilana Elbert both died.
