Lubbock man arrested, accused of sending photos to girl, her mother online


Lubbock police arrested a 19-year-old man last month after he was accused of harassing online a 16-year-old girl by sending her pictures of his genitals and requesting sex from the girl since the summer.

Justin Fitts, who is out on bond, was arrested Oct. 18 and booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center on a second-degree felony count of online solicitation of a minor for sex and two class B misdemeanor counts of harassment, according to jail records.

A warrant for his arrest was issued Oct. 10.

Lubbock police detectives began an investigation into Pitts in May after a 16-year-old girl told police he was harassing her online through Facebook and Snapchat. The girl described Fitts as controlling, the warrant states.

The girl told a police detective she met Pitts through Instagram and dated him briefly. When they broke up, he began harassing her online by reportedly using fake social media accounts under her relative’s names.

Police detectives collected screenshots of the messages Fitts reportedly sent the girl and her mother, including images of his genitals. The girl recognized the rug and tiles in one of the photos, which detectives found at Fitts’ home.

Man accused of abuse wanted an ‘epic and savage’ mugshot. Others say it’s a disgrace


Brandon Trice Harmon wanted an “epic and savage” mugshot. So he wore a blond wig and fake glasses when he posed last month.

He was arrested in Major County, Okla., on a misdemeanor warrant for domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor.

He has a smirk on his face in the photo. But the family of the victim of his alleged crime is not amused that county law enforcement officials allowed the picture to be taken that way.

“It was like they made a mockery of the Domestic Abuse Awareness Month,” Kathy Lambert, the victim’s mother, told the Enid News Eagle.

“They just took pictures of the deputies wearing ‘We support domestic violence month’ shirts, but yet they let this happen.”

Sheriff Steve Randolph would not comment to local media about the photo, which Lambert saw in the October issue of Jailbirds, which publishes mugshots.

She accused Randolph of giving Harmon, 34, special treatment because the two men are friends.

“Nobody else gets that opportunity,” she said. “It’s just a slap in the face to all the women who are abused daily. It’s a sad crime that happens daily, it was just a disgrace.”

A warrant for Harmon’s arrest was issued

Man accused of ramming protesters in Charlottesville pictured with racist group – KTRK


The man accused of plowing a car into a crowd protesting a white supremacist rally in Virginia had been photographed hours earlier carrying the emblem of one of the hate groups that organized the “Take America Back” campaign.

Vanguard America denied on Sunday any association with the suspect, even as a separate hate group that organized Saturday’s rally pledged on social media to organize future events that would be “bigger than Charlottesville.”

The mayor of Charlottesville and political leaders of all political stripes vowed to combat the hate groups and urged President Donald Trump to forcefully denounce the organizations that had promoted the protest against the removal of a Confederate statue. Some of those groups specifically cited Trump’s election after a campaign of racially charged rhetoric as validation of their beliefs.
