    A Miami cop pulled someone over last month on a routine traffic stop, but the ensuing mess resulted in an internal investigation because it turns out the man this police officer pulled over was actually a higher-ranking officer in the same police department. Officer Marcel Jackson pulled over Lieutenant David Ramras and things got intense really quickly. In a video captured on Jackson’s GoPro camera, you can see them fighting and Jackson forcing Ramras to the ground. Other officers nearby run up to....(video at link)

    Trooper They Needed to "Stick Together" Before DUI Arrest: FHPA Miami-Dade Police officer pleaded with a Florida Highway Patrol trooper that they needed to "stick together" before he was arrested for driving under the influence during a traffic stop in Plantation, authorities said. Officer Albert Steven Coriat, 40, was arrested back on Feb. 16 following the stop on Florida's Turnpike near mile marker 59, according to an FHP report released Monday. According to the report, the trooper spotted a gray vehicle trying to make an illegal U-turn and stopped the car. When the trooper approached the car, he saw the...

    Secretary of State John Kerry came to AIPAC with a lot of selling to do on behalf of the Obama administration’s ambitions for the Middle East. The crowd responded with light applause and a short standing ovation as he left the stage. Speaking in Washington on Monday night to the annual conference of the Israel advocacy group, Kerry — whom the administration sent rather than President Barack Obama or Vice President Joe Biden — recalled when, on a trip years ago to an Israeli air base as a senator, one of the officers took him up in a fighter jet...

    Joe Biden's niece, Caroline Biden, got into some trouble with the law last fall, getting herself arrested after taking a swing at a cop who responded to a call about a fight Biden got in with her roommate. But because no cops were injured, prosecutors agreed to let her avoid jail and to dismiss her case if she stays out of trouble. Biden wasn't in court (she's at an inpatient facility for "her issues"), but her two lawyers "presented a sworn affidavit indicating she would accept the offer."

Four days later, Perry's post boasts more than 117,000 "likes," 21,000 comments, and 12,000 shares. Atlanta police have launched an internal investigation, E! News reports. Perry's predicament began when he admittedly made a left turn from a far-right lane -- a trick his security detail taught him, to make sure he wasn't being followed, Perry explained on Facebook. Two white Atlanta police officers pulled him over, but...

    MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel on Tuesday again insisted on his innocence in a 1975 killing, as he pleaded with a three-judge panel to reduce his prison sentence of 20 years to life. Skakel's lawyer, Hubert Santos, argued in Middletown Superior Court that the sentence Skakel received after his 2002 murder conviction in the beating death of Martha Moxley when the two were teen neighbors in wealthy Greenwich was excessive. Santos repeated his claim, which has been rejected by other state courts, that Skakel should have been tried in juvenile court, where the maximum sentence for a...

    Just when you thought the Kennedys were fading from Massachusetts politics, there’s new speculation brewing about a Camelot comeback. This one involves Joe Kennedy — maybe even two Joe Kennedys. The younger, Joe Kennedy III, 30-year-old son of the former congressman, is raising the most ruckus among Democrats with his pending move from the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office to a spot in the Middlesex prosecutor’s office, a launching pad for a number of Bay State politicians. “When a Kennedy moves to the most populous county in the state, close to the major media where there are more high-profile...

    Know what's worse than someone yelling on the train? Someone yelling on the train and making a complete ass of herself. Here is a self-identified "educated" woman yelling at a Metro-North train conductor who told her to pipe down. It's pretty incredible. According to the video's description, the woman was being loud and using profanity on the train. When the conductor told her to quiet down, she flew off the handle and started telling her, repeatedly, about how "educated" she is and how the conductor doesn't know "what schools I went to." (I'm betting she went to one of the...

The maid is deeply religious, investigators said, and immediately put her hands over her eyes so she wouldn’t see the naked Frenchman. He ran to her, began grabbing her breasts and pulling her down the hallway inside the luxury suite toward the bedroom. The maid said she tried a variety of tactics to get herself...

(Monsieur le directeur was not participating in the game: The field he likes to play requires more horizontal exertions, as even the deferential and protective French media have begun belatedly to acknowledge.) In consciously mimicking the slogan of another and very successful presidential candidate, the IMF boss and Socialist Party candidate improved upon it — or, at any rate, made it more accurate.

    Actual photo of police report from 1984 'Think we may have a pattern here? CRANSTON, R.I. -- "Attitude poor" was the note that a Rhode Island state trooper included in a 1984 speeding ticket issued to then Yale professor Henry Louis Gates. Records do lack a description of the words exchanged during the stop. The decades-old incident occurred on I-95 in Richmond, a town south of Providence. Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal Magistrate William Guglietta said it is not unusual. "We get these all the time," said Guglietta. Gates contacted the Rhode Island Traffic Court in 2002, asking to settle the...

    San Diego police Officer Frank White was found not guilty yesterday of criminal charges resulting from the shooting and wounding of a mother and her young son during a road-rage incident last year. A Vista Superior Court jury acquitted White, 29, of a felony count of grossly negligent discharge of a firearm and a misdemeanor count of exhibiting a firearm. White showed little emotion as the verdicts were read about 4 p.m., but after the jury left the courtroom, he bear-hugged his attorney, Rick Pinckard, then his wife, Jacquellyn.

    Among Members of Congress, there's a long-standing, proud tradition of the Airport Freakout. Add to the list of those who've indulged in meltdowns and temper tantrums while traveling one Sen. David Vitter, who on Thursday joined what we've dubbed the "Mile-Low Club" by going ballistic on an airline worker after missing a flight from Washington's Dulles airport to New Orleans. According to an HOH tipster who witnessed the scene, the Louisiana Republican arrived Thursday evening at his United Airlines gate 20 minutes before the plane was scheduled to depart, only to find the gate had already been closed. Undeterred, Vitter...

    One Democratic operative suggests keeping track of Barack Obama’s cabinet selections with a March Madness-type tournament chart. While no official announcements have been made, a controlled series of leaks have given a good sense of who's still in contention, and which big names have been bounced from the bracket. The new administration still has some major posts to fill, including heads for the departments of Defense, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Labor, and Energy, not to mention the Environmental Protection Agency. But a number of the biggest prizes seem to have already been won, and a handful of serious contenders...

    Dozens of federal air marshals charged with protecting the public from airplane terrorists have themselves been accused of criminal wrongdoing, including 18 who were charged with felonies. The tally comes from an investigation by the investigative journalism group ProPublica. Its story says marshals have been accused of aiding a human trafficking ring, smuggling drugs and money, trying to hire a hitman and trying to smuggle explosives from Afghanistan. "Since 9/11, air marshals have taken bribes, committed bank fraud, hired an escort while on layover and doctored hotel receipts to pad expenses, records show,” the story reports. They have also “used...

    Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) may have one of the best-known faces in the world, but that doesn’t mean he is recognized everywhere, even in Washington. Washington Sports Club employee Takehia Wheeler was manning the front desk to scan members’ identification cards Friday morning when the presidential candidate walked in with his entourage. The gym opened a month ago in the Columbia Heights district. “He came in and walked past me,” Wheeler told In The Know. “I was like, ‘Sir, you need to come back.’ ” Wheeler said Obama looked familiar, but she didn’t recognize him. So she asked for his...
