    A Bronx woman who has accused an NYPD cop of breaking into her apartment during a drunken early morning attack told investigators that he viciously beat her in her bed, punching her more than 20 times. Officer Eugene Donnelly, clad only in his underwear, eventually fled — but not before taking a drink of milk from her refrigerator, a source familiar with the woman’s account told the Daily News. The woman told investigators she was awakened at 5:30 a.m. by a boom — the sound as Donnelly busted her front door open, according to the source familiar with her account....

    The 7th Air Force called last weekend’s ban on drinking a “success,” with no alcohol-related incidents recorded during the 66-hour period. The ban on alcohol purchase and consumption was in place for all airmen in South Korea from noon Friday through 6 a.m. Monday. Violators could have faced punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Command spokeswoman Maj. Richelle Dowdell said the alcohol stand-down was successful because it gave airmen a chance to reflect on their mission, gave them “time to consider what we must do to change — not only as individuals but to promote a culture of...

    Soccer star Hope Solo pleaded not guilty to domestic violence charges this afternoon in Kirkland Municipal Court. City prosecutors asked for a bail of $5,000 and no-contact order between Solo and the alleged victims. However, Kirkland Municipal Court Judge Michael J. Lambo allowed Solo to be released on her own recognizance after her attorney, Todd Maybrown, argued that she had no prior arrests and was not a flight risk. The judge also ordered Solo to not consume alcohol as a condition of her release. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Aug. 11. Among those seated in court was Jerramy Stevens,...

It was after 2:30 a.m. on a weekend when the first of several 911 callers reported two young men, not in uniform, driving a marked patrol car through the lively Las Olas and Himmarshee bar-hopping districts with the loudspeaker blaring."They're saying extremely lewd and really stupid things over the P.A.," the first caller reported.

    ROSEMOUNT, Minn. (KMSP) - It's yet another instance of a neighbor puling a gun on a neighbor. This time, it happened in Rosemount, Minn. while a father was teaching his 7-year-old daughter how to ride a bicycle. Gary Drake, 61, is facing second-degree assault and terroristic threat charges after he was accused of brandishing a shotgun on Daytona Way last week. It's an idyllic street, but neighbors there like to talk. When Jeanne Helgeson heard rumors that a well-known neighbor had threatened someone with a gun, she didn't believe it -- until her next-door neighbor confirmed the details, that is....

That’s a normal process in getting your prisoners back.” Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. special forces by the Taliban Saturday, with the government of Qatar serving as a go-between. Qatar is taking custody of five...

Along with Jayne Jones, her Concordia University political science professor, and six like-minded classmates, the 22-year-old Alexandria native and law school aspirant wants to add impaired driving as a specified exclusion to a state law that grants lawmakers immunity from arrest in certain cases while the session is underway.

    PASCO, Wash. -- We don't yet know if a Pasco homeowner will face criminal charges for killing a man last week. Stephan Aceves was shot multiple times while trying to get into a home on Savary Drive. Now prosecutors say they have not decided whether this is considered justified. The prosecutor and a representative from Pasco PD held a news conference Tuesday but made no announcement on whether there would be charges. The shooting on Savary Drive appears to be a case of mistaken identity. In this case, it was the house that led to confusion. The family of Stephan...

Vice President Biden seems to think so. After a White House meeting in January to announce a new task force to curb sexual assaults on campus, the ever-effusive VEEP declared that every woman should expect such federal protection “no matter what she’s wearing, no matter whether she’s in a bar, in a dormitory, in the back seat of a car, on a street, drunk or sober.” His remarks accompanied the release of a new report by the...
