A Kentucky woman was arrested on accusations she beat a disabled man with his metal cane until it broke, because he said he didn’t believe in God, WDRB reports.
Laura Reid, 49, was visiting the victim in his home, and at one point she asked him if he believed in God, police told the station. The man jokingly replied he didn’t. Reid became so enraged by his answer that she allegedly picked up his metal cane and beat him over the head and body. She then robbed him.
Police told WDRB that the man was unable to leave because of his disability. Reid stayed in his home for three hours after the alleged assault, then left with his cell phone, keys, wallet containing credit cards and $50 cash.
The man was forced to crawl to a local gas station in order to seek help, where paramedics took him to a nearby hospital. He suffered serious injuries, including a concussion, a broken arm, multiple bruises, cuts and abrasions.
The victim was able to cancel his credit cards and identify Reid, who is being charged with assault, robbery and unlawful imprisonment. An arrest warrant was issued in October and she was taken into custody Tuesday.
‘You’re a witness — act like it’: Congresswoman owns Lewandowski when he tries to filibuster
Corey Lewandowski had a difficult time debating Democrats who treated him like a hostile witness in a Congressional hearing Tuesday. When he tried to go off on a tangent and complaint, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) wasn't having it.
"We’re seeing a pattern of the president doing anything and everything to hide his misconduct from Congress and from the American people," she said. "The president tried to get you to deliver a secret message to the attorney general, all in an attempt to prevent the special counsel from exposing the president’s own misconduct. As soon as the special counsel published his report and the president’s misconduct was exposed, the president tried to cover that up, too. Isn’t it true that the president has repeatedly tried to discredit your and other witnesses’ testimony to the special counsel in the published report?"
Corey Lewandowski eventually proved Trump obstructed justice: former US attorney
Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance explained in her appearance on MSNBC Tuesday that Corey Lewandowski's attempts to plead "hatchetman privilege" weren't successful. He ultimately outed Trump for breaking the law.
Lewandowski attempted to claim that he couldn't answer any questions about special counsel Robert Mueller's account because he hadn't read it. But the information he personally gave to Mueller was enough to corner both men.
"I mean, Donald Trump has been found to have committed felony finance crimes by the Southern District of New York. Donald Trump has been found -- committed ten acts of criminal obstruction of justice by Robert Mueller and his investigators," host Nicolle Wallace said. "And I think what Ron was just sort of pulling the curtain back on is his suspicion that that may not be the headline, that Corey Lewandowski today confirmed at least two of those instances of criminal obstruction of justice."
Corey Lewandowski: ‘Fake Russia collusion narrative’ is a greater ‘crime’ than 9/11 and Pearl Harbor
Former Trump campaign aide Corey Lewandowski said on Tuesday that the investigation into Russia's attack on the U.S. election system may be the "greatest crime" waged on the American people ever.
While appearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Republican Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana teed up a question for the president's adviser.
"You called it a witch hunt I wonder if you’d like to elaborate on that any further?" Johnson asked.
"I think that this fake Russia collusion narrative is the greatest crime committed against the American people in our generation if not ever," Lewandowski opined. "This is a president who was duly elected by the American people and members of certain bodies refuse to accept the election results."
