West Park, Florida deputies pulled over 26-year-old Duewayne Dixon on Sunday afternoon for riding an all-terrain vehicle in the streets of his neighborhood. Deputies were just going to give Dixon a citation until his sister Francheska Turull and her husband, Jessie Hernandez, showed up. Apparently, the couple had a problem with Dixon getting a ticket and got into a verbal altercation with the deputies. The jawing escalated into a physical confrontation with Hernandez, with Francheska joining in the melee. When it was all over, instead of Dixon just getting a ticket, he was arrested along with Hernandez and Francheska.

The fourth man was apprehended at the scene with a leg wound, although police said the homeowner wasn’t hurt.
East Palo Alto, California’s Akilah Hasan did a live stream on Sunday afternoon in which she invited her followers to a party. Unfortunately, this was after Akilah had broken into a stranger’s home and grabbed his cellphone.

Officers put an end to her party by arresting her on burglary and robbery charges. Police said it isn’t yet known whether Akilah had been using alcohol or drugs before or during the incident, but it would seem highly likely.
Gigi Wu is known to online fans as the ‘Bikini Hiker’ for climbing mountains around the world in skimpy swimwear.

Ronald Jenkins stopped in to a Jacksonville, Florida KFC on the night of December 29th where he observed drive-thru worker Shade Simmons take his money and then handle food without washing her hands or putting on gloves.
