He wrote prescriptions and did medical procedures. That’s why he got arrested


The physician assistant at Doral’s Med-Clinic Health Care thought it a bit odd that others would ask her to sign prescriptions even if Dr. Jose Ramirez, the clinic’s president, was around. Then, she knew something was rotten in Doral when she saw Ramirez sign a prescription in another doctor’s name.

Jose Ramirez isn’t a licensed doctor in Florida or, according to records, anywhere else.

That led to Ramirez’s arrest on Thursday in which he is accused of practicing medicine without a license, posing as a physician and possession of a blank prescription form. Last week, authoirities made another arrest over an unlicensed medical practice. Karim Cordovarivera was arrested Oct. 3 and charged with performing unlicensed dentistry out of a house north of Allapattah.

Med-Clinic, incorporated in 2010, originally was at 9588 NW 41st St. in Doral before moving in to 10800 NW 58th St. in 2015. According to the Florida Department of Health’s license verification webpage, Med-Clinic has no license to operate as any kind of medical facility. Though Med-Clinic’s website carries the logo of the Urgent Care Association of America, a search of UCAOA accredited or certified locations in Doral comes up empty.

Despite the lack

2 men charged with killing 2 during attempted robbery of drug proceeds in Syracuse


SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse police today announced the arrest of two men in connection with a Sept. 25 shooting that left two men dead.

Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler said at news conference Thursday Rene DeJesus, 33, and Brian Montanez, 26, were trying to rob the victims of “drug proceeds” when they killed two men.

Fowler would not say whether the victims were actually selling drugs, or whether they had been robbed of drugs, money or both.

DeJesus, of New York City, was arrested with the help of the New York City Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service. He was brought back to Syracuse.

DeJesus was charged with first-degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon and attempted robbery, according to arrest records posted Thursday. He was arrested in New York City, records show.

Rene DeJesus, 33, of New York City 

Montanez  of Syracuse, was arrested in Syracuse. He was charged with second-degree murder and attempted robbery. His mugshot was not immediately provided.

The two victims were Jose “Jimmy” Osvaldo Castro, 39, of Syracuse and Arturo Resto Figueroa, 31.  Figueroa is not from New York and may have ties to Oklahoma, police said.

An “associate” of Castro’s called 911 around 9:47

Leaf-Chronicle puts an end to daily gallery of arrest mugshots


In 2011, The Leaf-Chronicle began collecting and publishing, in an easy-to-access format, booking mugshots from the Montgomery County Jail. It was part of a national trend among journalism websites, and it built a lot of excitement as another way to drive online readership and engagement.

These mugshots have been available to the public on the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office website since 2005. But The Leaf-Chronicle was able to republish them in a manner that would make them easier to click through, packaging them with other crime news in a one-stop location at TheLeafChronicle.com. 

It was a service to readers we were glad to provide, and it proved quite popular.

Six years is a lifetime in digital years, and during that time, a lot has changed:

Major drug bust in affluent Georgia homes yields $7M in marijuana, 9 arrests, officials say


The basements in six Georgia homes were converted into indoor greenhouses for marijuana production, cops say.

 (Hall County’s MANS)

“The photos really don’t do it justice,” Lt. Dan Scalia, who is in charge of the Hall County Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad, told Fox News on Thursday. “Some

Baker Mayfield Goes Long on His Biggest Mistake, Confetti Bombs and Bedlam


Heisman candidate Baker Mayfield is hoping to lead Oklahoma back to the College Football Playoff in his senior season, and while the Sooners’ chances took a hit in last weekend’s upset loss to Iowa State, their path to a Big 12 title and a shot at the final four is still well within reach, with rivalry games against Texas and Oklahoma State coming in the month ahead. Before the Iowa State game, I sat down with the Sooners’ star quarterback to talk about his career, leadership, the rivalries he seems to relish and more.

Bruce Feldman: Do you think [Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley] had a pretty unique understanding of what drives you early on? It wasn’t like he chose you or you chose him. You guys were both kind of here by circumstance. He seemed like he let you embrace playing with that edge, probably more than a lot of coaches. Would you agree with that?

Baker Mayfield: I would. And I think that is what makes him so special. He coaches to his players’ best traits and he lets them do their best by doing that. I think that is why [we connected] so quickly because I think he relates to

Police to arrest 10 people in LSU fraternity pledge’s death


Ten people will be arrested on hazing charges in the death of a Louisiana State University fraternity pledge after a night of drinking, LSU officials said Wednesday.

One of the 10 suspects, Matthew Alexander Naquin, also faces a negligent homicide charge in the death last month of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver, a freshman from Roswell, Georgia, LSU said in a statement.

Eight of the suspects are LSU students and were active members of the fraternity, according to university spokesman Ernie Ballard. He said all 10 are expected to be jailed Wednesday once they turn themselves in to LSU police.

“The LSU Police Department has communicated with the Gruver family throughout the investigation process, and the university has also been in touch with them regarding today’s arrests,” LSU’s statement says.

Gruver died at a Baton Rouge hospital on Sept. 14 after Phi Delta Theta members found him lying on a couch at the fraternity house and couldn’t tell if he was breathing, police said.

A coroner said hospital tests found a “highly elevated” blood-alcohol level in Gruver’s body.

Witnesses told police that the fraternity’s pledges were forced to drink to excess on the night before Gruver’s

Utah officer fired after nurse’s arrest caught on video


A Utah police officer was fired Tuesday after being seen on video roughly handcuffing a nurse because she refused to allow a blood draw in an incident that became a flashpoint in the national conversation about use of force.

Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown made the decision to fire Detective Jeff Payne after an internal investigation found he violated department policies when he arrested nurse Alex Wubbels and dragged her screaming from the hospital, department spokesman Sgt. Brandon Shearer said.

Brown said in a disciplinary letter that he was “deeply troubled” by Payne’s conduct, which he described as “inappropriate, unreasonable, unwarranted, discourteous, disrespectful” and said brought “significant disrepute” on the department.

“You demonstrated extremely poor professional judgment (especially for an officer with 27 years of experience), which calls into question your ability to effectively serve the public and the department,” Brown wrote.

Attorney Greg Skordas, who represents Payne, said his client plans to appeal a firing he considers unfair and over the top. Skordas said Payne would still be employed if the body camera footage hadn’t generated so much attention and blown the events out of proportion.

Payne’s supervisor, Lt. James Tracy, was demoted

Senate candidate Roy Moore’s son is arrested for the ninth time


The son of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore has been arrested in Alabama on a misdemeanor charge linked to allegations of illegal hunting.

Etowah County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Natalie Barton tells news outlets 27-year-old Caleb Moore surrendered Monday on a charge of third-degree criminal trespass. He was accused of hunting without permission and hunting over bait last year.

Barton says Caleb Moore was released on $1,000 bond.

Moore’s campaign issued a statement calling the arrest a “cheap political trick.”

Caleb Moore was arrested on drug charges in 2015, but those were dropped after he entered a pre-trial diversion program. 

Monday’s arrest marks the ninth time the 27-year-old has been in jail, AL.com reported. 

Roy Moore is facing Democrat Doug Jones in the special election for the U.S. Senate on Dec. 12. Moore is a former Alabama chief justice who’s been removed from office twice.
