    Philadelphia police broke up a Memorial Day party in the city’s Brewerytown neighborhood that attracted hundreds of young people, none wearing masks. “Traffic could not get by, even pedestrian traffic walking on the sidewalks could not get by,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said. Videos posted on social media captured the crowd, estimated to be as large as 250 people, gathered near the intersection of 28th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue. “Turns out the crowd was there listening to a DJ playing some music and because of social media, the crowds grew really large and very rapidly,” Small...

    A former Louisiana sheriff's deputy and his teacher wife who are facing a slew of charges, including child rape, producing child pornography and sexual abuse of an animal, are being sued for allegedly serving school children cupcakes tainted with bodily fluids.

    It's no longer news that texting while driving is incredibly dangerous—it's common sense. What's more, filming a high-speed run with one hand on the wheel and the other on your iPhone is on another level of stupidity. That didn't stop this Audi RS6 driver from mashing the accelerator and videoing their drive to 200 miles per hour on a public British roadway, though. And if that wasn't brazen enough, the clip was then uploaded to Twitter for everyone to see. Police are now looking for the daredevil who drove 202 miles per hour on the M23 south of Crawley, as...

    It’s getting rough out there for retail workers during the coronavirus outbreak, a California woman wants the public to know. Earlier this month, Samantha Clarke of Modesto says, a customer attacked her while she was working at a Big 5 sporting goods store. “We didn’t have what they wanted and she lost her temper and she hit me in the face,” Clarke told FOX 40 of Sacramento. In an April post on Facebook, Clarke seemed to sense that an incident like the alleged attack on May 6 might be coming. “My business has been deemed essential,” she wrote April 26....

St. Petersburg police officers responded to a domestic violence call involving Curry on March 27, according to court documents. During his arrest, Curry declared that he was infected with COVID-19 and coughed on an officer’s arm, police said.

    STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden, which has opted for a more open strategy in combating the virus than other European countries, has the highest number of deaths in Europe per capita from the COVID-19 disease over the last seven days, data showed. Sweden has kept most schools, restaurant and businesses open during the pandemic. While deaths are on the decline Sweden had 6.25 deaths per million inhabitants per day in a rolling seven day average between May 12 and May 19, according to Ourworldinsata.org. That was the highest in Europe and just above the United Kingdom, which had 5.75 deaths per...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Exotic dancers are now getting back to work at a gentleman’s club that straddles the Colorado-Wyoming border. Although some of the property is in Colorado, The Den is technically in Wyoming. “When they reopened the restaurants and bars in Wyoming we were super excited because it’s been very difficult for us,” owner Kim Chavez told FOX31. “It’s been horrible to go almost three months without any kind of income,” Kim’s husband and co-owner Greg Chavez said. Wyoming has seen significantly fewer COVID-19 cases and deaths than Colorado. The state allowed bars and restaurants to reopen to in-person...

    State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R) of Butler County is slated to propose a resolution calling for the impeachment of Gov. Tom Wolf (D), contending that the governor has “violated a number of our God-given rights affirmed in the United States Constitution.” Metcalfe sent a memo to colleagues on Friday, asking them to cosponsor his measure to impeach the governor over his administration’s response to the coronavirus in the Keystone State. In the memo, Metcalfe states that Wolf’s order “mandating the closure of physical locations of all businesses that he has deemed ‘non-life sustaining’ has violated our citizens’ rights in many...
