The resident reviewed the security footage and sent it to police. Montgomery County Sheriff is looking into the "suspicious incident".

    Francesco Molinari won the British Open on Sunday, giving him his first major title after emerging from a crowded pack including Tiger Woods in a wild final round at Carnoustie. Molinari shot a bogey-free, 2-under 69 to finish on 8-under 276. He became the first Italian to capture a major championship. Earlier, Tiger Woods played himself into contention, edging to within a stroke of the lead on the front nine. Woods led briefly, but dropped out of the lead after a double-bogey at the 11th hole. He sent his second shot into the gallery, with the ball rebounding out into...

    Scott Adams releases several talks throughout each day. I try to watch most of them. Today he posits that the company that manufactures Ambien has made a massive mistake by issuing a statement that "Ambien does not cause racism". He contends that Ambien does cause people to do things they otherwise would not do. And that the drug. is classified as a "hypnotic". His take is that Roseanne may well have taken the drug and tweeted under its influence. He also feels that the drug company may well open themselves up to problems by saying that their drug does not...

    President Donald Trump is slated to sign the controversial "right-to-try" bill on Wednesday, which would bypass drug regulators to give gravely ill patients access to experimental medicines. The legislation allows patients with life-threatening conditions to ask drugmakers for medicines that have cleared some testing but still haven't been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Previously, people would need to ask the FDA for access to experimental treatments. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence had been major supporters of passing the measure, which supporters say gives patients hope they would not otherwise have. The House of Representatives approved the bill...

    Conservative media pioneer Matt Drudge slammed drugmaker Sanofi-Aventis on Wednesday for mocking Roseanne Barr’s suggestion that her racially charged remark about Obama White House aide Valerie Jarrett was induced by Ambien. “The drug company mocking Roseanne for her mental illness while they drug a generation is a new low!” Drudge tweeted at the drugmaker’s Twitter handle, @SanofiUS, including three sources detailing the drug’s scary side effects. The first report — published by Thought Catalog, titled “44 Ambien Stories That Will Creep You The Eff Out” — is a listicle of people recounting their bizarre experiences while on the drug. One...

    The makers of Ambien don't want users to be worried about becoming racist, just because Roseanne Barr used their product as an excuse for her tweet about Valerie Jarrett on Tuesday. "People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world," the company said in a statement to TheWrap Wednesday. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication."

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said in a Sunday show interview that some of the allegations against Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson should be investigated. “I think some of those allegations do warrant being investigated. I don't think you want members of Congress deciding whether or not the prescribing of Ambien is within the course of a professional medical practice,” Gowdy told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” "In fact, I can't think of anybody less well qualified to decide whether Ambien should be prescribed than a bunch of lawyers. So that's a medical license issue. Hostile work environment would be some combination...

    A Polish prostitute on her way to ply her trade in Boston was plastered on booze and addled by Ambien when she tried to open an exit door on a trans-Atlantic British Airways flight, prosecutors said. Kamila Dolniak, 32, was unable to make her $500 bail yesterday, her lawyer said, after she was arraigned in East Boston Municipal Court on a charge of interfering with an aircraft operation during the London-to-Boston flight Tuesday. Prosecutor Emily Hamrock said Dolniak first drew attention of a flight attendant while attempting to smoke an e-cigarette. She then walked around the cabin aimlessly, saying she...

    Former Obama Admin Aide Rapes 2 Women, Gets No Jail Time for INSANE Reason May 10, 2015 By Colleen Conley FacebookTwitterMore926 With the aid of a complicit media, liberals have become untouchable when it comes to nefarious and even criminal behavior under the Obama Administration. A serious double standard now exists; conservatives involved in scandals and crimes are still held accountable, while Democrats, more often than not, get a free pass. Case in point: last year, Donny Ray Williams, a former Democrat congressional aide, pleaded guilty to raping two women. According to reports, in 2010, Williams subdued his first victim,...

    Fort Hood shooter was taking "prescription drugs for depression and anxiety". SSRIs? "Lopez was undergoing a variety of treatments for conditions including depression, anxiety and sleep disturbances, McHugh said. He was prescribed drugs that included Ambien, a sleep aid. Lopez was fully examined last month by a psychiatrist. There was no record of any sign he was likely to commit violence against himself or others, according to McHugh. "So the plan (going) forward was just to continue to monitor and treat him as deemed appropriate," he said." They say that he was "prescribed drugs" but only named one, Ambien, which...

    Former Commerce Secretary John Bryson tested positive for the sleeping aid Ambien, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office. Prosecutors announced Tuesday that they have decided not to file criminal charges against Bryson in connection with two alleged hit-and-run crashes in the San Gabriel Valley last month.(snip)His tests showed “low end of therapeutic levels” and a criminalist could not say if it was a factor in the collisions. Both treating doctors agree he was suffering confusion following a seizure and crashed as a result, according to the memo.
