Published

An Alabama man was arrested after responding to a woman’s offer of help with racial threats and shotgun threats.

Christopher Joseph Lucier was spotted earlier this week attempting to push his vehicle into the parking lot of a Wal-Mart store in Ozark, reported the Dothan Eagle.

A woman offered to help Lucier push the vehicle into the parking lot — and police said he apparently became enraged.

Lucier responded to the offer by screaming racial slurs and grabbing a shotgun from his vehicle, witnesses said.

He then threatened to kill bystanders as the woman backed away from him and waited for police to arrive.

Officers ordered Lucier down to the ground, and police used a Taser to subdue him and take him into custody.

Lucier was charged with a felony count of terroristic threatening and misdemeanor counts of public intoxication and obstruction of government operations.

He was jailed on $12,000 bond.

CNBC anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin on Wednesday accused co-anchor Joe Kernen of providing political help to President Donald Trump instead of reporting factual news about the coronavirus pandemic.

Kernen appeared to get under Sorkin's skin by dismissing questions about the relatively quick market comeback as the rest of the economy suffers in the midst of the pandemic.

"Joe, you missed [the stock market] 100% on the way down and you missed 100,000 deaths," Sorkin said. "So we can have this debate back and forth and you can try and question the questions I'm asking."

"Hold on!" Sorkin shouted when Kernen tried to interrupt him.

Published

A firm set up by a former telemarketer who once settled federal fraud charges for $2.7 million. A vodka distributor accused in a pending lawsuit of overstating its projected sales. An aspiring weapons dealer operating out of a single-family home.

These three privately held companies are part of the new medical supply chain, offered a total of almost $74 million by the federal government to find and rapidly deliver vital protective equipment and COVID-19 testing supplies across the U.S. While there’s no evidence that they obtained their deals through political connections, none of the three had to bid against competing firms. One has already lost its contract for lack of performance; it’s unclear if the other two can fulfill their orders on time, or at all.

"The View" co-host Meghan McCain called for charges against the Minneapolis police officers over the fatal arrest of George Floyd.

The four officers lost their jobs over the death, which prompted widespread protests that were met with tear gas and other violent tactics from police.

"There was huge amounts of protesters that took to the streets last night, and I think people are sitting in their homes and seeing what is blatantly a murder of a man on camera, and George Floyd, I watched the entire video," McCain said. "I know we didn't want to show the entire thing, but it's very graphic. It's very violent."
