Los Angeles man arrested in ‘swatting’ prank – NY Daily News

An alleged serial “prankster” from California has been arrested over a fake 911 call that resulted in police fatally shooting an unarmed Kansas man earlier this week, officials said.

Tyler Barriss — a 25-year-old gamer suspected of making the false police report that led to the death of Wichita resident Andrew Finch — was cuffed by Los Angeles cops late Friday. The catastrophic prank Barriss carried out, known as “swatting,” has gained traction in online gaming communities and typically involves a person making up a story about an ongoing violent crime to trigger a massive police response.

Finch was gunned down on Thursday night after cops believe Barriss told a 911 dispatcher that he had shot his father and was holding his mother and younger brother hostage.

“I shot him in the head and he’s not breathing anymore,” Barriss said, according to a recording of the call released by the Wichita Police Department.

‘Glee’ star Naya Rivera arrested on domestic battery – NY Daily News

“Glee” star Naya Rivera was arrested for assaulting her husband during a fight over their 2-year-old son Saturday night in West Virginia, according to authorities.

The 30-year-old actress is accused of drunkenly hitting hubby Ryan Dorsey, 34, in the head during a walk with their child while spending the Thanksgiving weekend in his hometown of Chesapeake, according to a police report.

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office deputy that cuffed Rivera believed she was intoxicated at the time of the assault.

Dorsey handed authorities cell phone video that apparently shows the spousal clash, WSAZ-TV reports.

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:
