Police investigating use of force in Markeith Loyd arrest


ORLANDO, Fla. – Hours after accused murderer Markeith Loyd cursed at a judge during his first court appearance and accused authorities of beating him, the Orlando Police Department released video showing a law enforcement officer kicking Loyd during his arrest.

Loyd is accused of fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon, on Dec. 13 and killing Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton when she tried to apprehend him at an Orlando Walmart on Jan. 9.

Police arrested Loyd on Tuesday night at an abandoned home in the Carver Shores neighborhood of Orlando, bringing a massive nine-day manhunt to an end.

About 7 1/2 minutes into the 16-minute helicopter video, Loyd can be seen crawling on his stomach through the yard toward police officers who were surrounding the residence.

When Loyd reaches the law enforcement officers about two minutes later, one of the officers appears to kick Loyd while he’s lying flat on his stomach. The helicopter spotter recording the video then turns the camera away.

The video does not show Loyd’s actions during his arrest. A video edited for length is available above and the full video is available here.

Police Chief John Mina held a news conference at 3 p.m. Thursday to address the content of the video and provide

Suspect Orlando cop’s slaying says he was brutalized; video of arrest released


Hours after a fugitive in the slaying of a police officer told a judge he was brutalized during his arrest, Orlando’s police chief released a video of his surrender and described the suspect as “extremely violent, dangerous and very unpredictable.”

The nighttime aerial video shows Markeith Loyd crawling across the front yard of a home before he’s surrounded by police. At least two of the officers appear to kick him as he surrenders. The camera then pans out and away, making it difficult to see anything in detail.

Police Chief John Mina acknowledged that Loyd was kicked during his arrest Tuesday, but said that’s because he was resisting the officers’ orders.

Loyd later appeared with both eyes swollen shut and blood oozing from his mouth. He was hospitalized overnight and then jailed before his initial appearance Thursday.

Police release aerial video of Markeith Loyd capture


Orlando police released Thursday dark aerial video footage of murder suspect Markeith Loyd’s capture, which appears to show officers kicking Loyd in the head twice after he crawled out of the abandoned house in which he was hiding.

Chief John Mina said a use of force investigation is underway, which is customary when any officer uses force.

Loyd was arrested Tuesday in Carver Shores. He is accused of killing Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton Jan. 9, as well as the death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend Sade Dixon Dec. 13.

Loyd was injured during the arrest, though officers did not fire any shots. No officers were injured.

Mina said Loyd resisted arrest by not putting his hands behind his back.

At his first court appearance Thursday morning, Loyd complained that officers beat him. Mina confirmed at a press conference Thursday afternoon that Loyd had a fractured bone at his left eye socket, as well as some damage to his left eye.

Rhode Island sisters reported missing in 1985 found alive; mother arrested


HOUSTON — Two sisters, who were reported missing from Rhode Island more than three decades ago, have been found alive in Houston.

Kelly Yates and her sister, Kimberly Yates, were allegedly abducted by their fugitive, non-custodial mother, Elaine Carolyn Yates, who police have arrested.

Their father, Russell Yates, filed a missing persons report for the girls on Aug. 26, 1985. The girls were 3 years old and 10 months old at the time.

In November of 1988, authorities issued a felony warrant for Elaine Yates after their father received legal custody of the children and contacted police, who began searching for her on two counts of child snatching.

Authorities believe Elaine Yates left the home with her daughters after having a domestic dispute with their dad.

In Dec. 2016, members of the Rhode Island State Police received information on the possible whereabouts of the mother and children. With the assistance of the Texas Department of Public Safety, authorities tracked down Elaine Yates and the two sisters – all living under assumed identities – in the Houston area.

Stanley Wilson II arrested while naked again


stanleywilson

Former Lions defensive back Stanley Wilson II has been arrested while naked, and not for the first time.

The Oregonian reports that police in Portland arrested Wilson on January 10 after finding him naked outside a stranger’s home. Wilson hasn’t posted bail and has been in jail since.

Wilson was also arrested on June 22 after a homeowner caught him trying to break into a house. The homeowner shot him and he ran off, and when the homeowner called 911, emergency personnel arrived and found Wilson outside the home, also naked. Wilson suffered only minor injuries from the gunshot.

Since that incident, Wilson has had multiple violations of his conditional release, including testing positive for methamphetamine and getting arrested for spitting at a campus safety officer. It is unclear why Wilson has been allowed to stay out of jail despite repeatedly violating the conditions of his release.

What is clear is that a person who repeatedly gets arrested naked, spits at people and tests positive for methamphetamine has a serious problem. A graduate of Stanford University, Wilson once appeared to have a promising future. But like his father, the former Bengals running

Plies Drives Hammered & Gets Slammered Bihhhhh, Arrested In Florida


Florida rapper Plies is making some less than friendly headlines. The hip-hop veteran found himself in handcuffs Tuesday (January 17) on a driving under the influence charge.

Details have surfaced on Plies’ unexpected run-in with law enforcement.

The Florida rapper was arrested early Tuesday morning and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail for allegedly being messed up behind the wheel. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they slapped on the cuffs after Plies was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence. He was released on a $500 bond the same day.

Bust-up: Thomas Markle Jr’s police mugshot after his arrest on gun charges

The half-brother of Prince Harry’s actress girlfriend has been charged after allegedly holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head following a drunken argument, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Thomas Markle Jr – whose half-sister Meghan has been dating the young Prince for several months – was arrested late on Thursday at the home he shares with his girlfriend of two months, Darlene Blount, in Grants Pass, Oregon.

The 50-year-old, whose father Thomas Markle Sr is also Meghan’s dad, was taken into custody after the row which is said to have escalated into violence.

An official police log of the incident, which spelled Meghan’s brother’s name incorrectly, stated: ‘Markel and Blount got into an argument.

‘In his drunken state Markel grabbed a gun and pressed it to Blount’s head in an attempt to get her to leave.’

It added that Blount rang the police after locking herself in the bathroom for safety.
