3 more accused in attack on Red Lobster waitress

Friday, 30 August 2013 03:41 Published in Local News

   BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Three more women are accused in southwestern Illinois in the 2011 attack on a Red Lobster waitress who was pummeled after serving the wrong fish order.

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports the latest charges come about a week after one of the defendants, 21-year-old Ania Wilkes of Ferguson, Mo., was convicted of felony assault and mob action. She awaits sentencing October 3rd.

   Prosecutors in St. Clair County charged Denise McNeal of Jennings, Missouri and Lareka McNeal and Diane Ryland, both of St. Louis, with aggravated battery and mob action.

   The victim, Heather Frink, says she was punched and pushed by diners at one table after she brought broiled fish instead of the requested fried fish.

   Online court records don't show whether the three newly charged people have attorneys.

 

Signs at I-55 stretch honor late Illinois trooper

Friday, 30 August 2013 03:17 Published in Local News

   LITCHFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Two Interstate 55 rest stops in central Illinois now bear the name of a state trooper killed on the freeway last year.

   Kyle Deatherage's family joined Illinois State Police in dedicating signs Thursday that designate the rest stops near Litchfield in Deatherage's honor. The action was approved earlier this year by Illinois' General Assembly.

   Deatherage was a 32 year old motorcycle trooper when he was hit and killed by a passing tractor-trailer last November during a traffic stop along the highway, about 45 miles south of Springfield.

   The trucker, 52 year old Johnny Felton Jr. of Hinesville, GA, is charged with reckless homicide and operating a commercial motor vehicle without a proper license. He has pleaded not guilty.

   Deatherage was a married father of two children and had been a trooper since May 2009.

 

   Illinois State Police are preparing to launch Operation Fatal 4 over Labor Day weekend -- one the busiest driving periods on Illinois roadways.  

   Troopers will saturate the interstates and local roadways looking for drivers committing the four most common traffic violations:  Speeding, DUI, seat belt violation, and distracted driving.  ISP officials say drivers who choose to violate the law face fines and possible jail time.  

   This is the seventh year of the Fatal 4 Mission.  Last year, troopers made more than 90 DUI arrests and cited more than 3,300 drivers for speeding, distracted driving and seat belt violations over the Labor Day weekend.
