    BLOOMFIELD, NJ (WABC) -- The tale of the police dashcam video has now helped clear a Bloomfield, New Jersey man who faced a multitude of criminal charges, including eluding police and assault. Investigative Reporter Sarah Wallace obtained the dashcam tapes, and has spoken exclusively with the 30-year old DJ who was looking at years in prison. It was quite a turnabout, all the criminal charges against Marcus Jeter have been dismissed, and two Bloomfield police officers have been indicted for falsifying reports, and one of them, for assault. A third pleaded guilty early on to tampering. It's all thanks to...

    19-year-old Kendrec McDade was shot multiple times by police in Pasadena last March while fleeing. Cops continued to shoot when they mistook their own shots for shots from the suspect. Police say they believed McDade had a gun based on his behavior during the foot chase (holding his waistband) and on a 911 call reporting as much. The 911 caller, Oscar Carillo, was arrested on an involuntary manslaughter charge a month after the shooting after admitted to lying about being robbed at gunpoint in order to elicit a faster police response. Federal immigration authorities also asked that he be detained...

    Mila Kunis has reportedly broken her word -- and, along with it, one lonely Marine's heart. Contrary to reports earlier this week, it appears that the "Black Swan" actress won't be attending the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore in North Carolina this November -- because she has filming commitments that will keep her too busy for traveling. Kunis accepted Moore's invitation to the ball after some prodding from her "Friends With Benefits" co-star, Justin Timberlake, on Monday. After Timberlake alerted Kunis to Moore's come-on, which he posted on YouTube, he urged, "You need to do it for your...

    In response to a request from Republicans on the House Natural Resources Committee, the Department of Interior's acting Inspector General, Mary Kendall, announced she is opening an investigation into whether a Department of Interior report recommending an offshore drilling ban was manipulated to appear as if the ban was endorsed by seven experts from the National Academy of Engineers. The report endorsed a six-month ban on deepwater drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf, and explicitly stated "the recommendations contained in this report have been peer-reviewed by seven experts identified by the National Academy of Engineering."

    Investigators are calling Monday's teacher disappearance a hoax, saying she's responsible for the anti-gay slur spray painted on her garage door, the broken window on her house and the blood and hair found in the kitchen. However, they stated, she hasn't committed a crime and will face no charges in an ordeal that she contends can't remember anything about. "We don't feel like she was abducted. There is no evidence she was abducted," said Capt. Vic Hollifield of the McDowell County Sheriff's Office. "We feel like what we saw at the scene was overkill versus what we usually see with...

    The US Secret Service has investigated an alleged death threat against Democrat Barack Obama that was yelled out on Monday at a rally for his Republican rival John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin. The probe by the service that protects US presidents, past and present, visiting world leaders and US presidential candidates, stems from a report by The Washington Post about a shout, “kill him,” heard during the rally when Obama’s name came up. The alleged threat was made when Palin was speaking of Obama’s relations with former 1960s radical Bill Ayers, whose group “The Weathermen” carried out a...

It does have serious social implications, however, and I hope not uninteresting to Freepers. Last Saturday night, my brother (46) and I (43) decided to go to a movie, King Fu Panda. Being an animated feature, we were wary of screaming kids so we specifically chose a showtime after 10PM. Four guys came in at the last minute and sat four seats away, with empty seats between us. Five minutes into the movie, the guy...

    Rape is a four-letter word. When police get a report of one, it flies to the top of their priority list. Even, police say, when that reaction is exploited. Sexual assaults, like other crimes, are sometimes falsely reported. People pretend to have been raped for reasons ranging from a cry for attention to hiding an infidelity. In a recent Grapevine case, police believe a woman who reported being raped in her apartment may have been looking for an excuse to break her lease. After committing more than a week of resources to the investigation, Grapevine officers concluded that the evidence...

    The woman sounded frantic, and her 911 call to the police in Meriden, Conn., on Saturday night was nightmarish: she had been raped by four or five men, she said, then locked in the trunk of their car. She was being driven around — she did not know where — and was calling from a cellphone. In the next few hours, the woman made six calls to the police dispatcher as detectives tried desperately to find her, their resources already stretched thin by two homicides in three days in a city that usually reports no more than three killings a...

The mysterious episode at Texas Tech University triggered a terrorism-alert plan and showed how jittery Americans are over the threat of a biological attack. Dr. Thomas C. Butler, chief of the infectious diseases division of the department of internal medicine, was arrested late Wednesday on a complaint of making a false statement to a federal agent. U.S. Attorney Dick Baker said the professor said the vials were missing...
