On Wednesday, a viral video showed a white woman outside of an Oakland County Chipotle restaurant in Michigan pulling a handgun on Black women during an altercation.

The incident allegedly occurred after the white woman bumped into one of the Black women.

“Before I could walk into Chipotle, this woman was coming out, and I had moved out the way so she can walk out,” Makayla Green told Detroit News. “She bumped me, and I said, ‘Excuse you.’ And then she started cussing me out and saying things like I was invading her personal space.”

The teen then called over her mother, Takelia Hill.

“I walked up on the woman yelling at my daughter,” Hill said. “She couldn’t see me because her back was to me, but she was in my daughter’s face.”

Green started recording after the altercation moved to the parking lot. The video shows the Black women demanding an apology.

“I care about you, and I’m sorry,” the white woman says after getting into her car.

Hill then stands behind the white woman’s car, apparently trying to prevent her from leaving.

“Get the license plate!” the Black woman can be heard shouting after the woman backs up.

“Don’t you f**king jump behind my car,” replied the woman after getting out of the car and brandishing her gun. “Get the f**k back! Get the f**k back! Back the f**k up!”

According to the poster, the woman who brandished the gun was arrested but later released.

In a statement, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said they had “received many inquiries regarding the incident which occurred at Chipotle in Orion Township last night” and would be holding a press conference on Thursday.

After months of meticulous tracking, authorities in the western US state of Washington on Friday said they had uncovered the first ever nest of the deadly Asian giant hornet in the country.

The nest was found on Thursday by Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) entomologists on a property in Blaine, near the border with Canada, the agency said in a statement.

It added that an attempt to eradicate the nest of wasps -- the world's largest hornet species also known as the "murder hornet" -- would take place on Saturday.

"The successful detection of a nest comes after a WSDA trapper collected two live Asian giant hornets on October 21 (Wednesday), caught in a new type of trap the agency had placed in the area," the statement said.

Mormons fed up with Trump’s vulgar rhetoric and behavior are flocking to the Democratic Party

Published

Mormons in the United States have traditionally been reliable Republican voters, but some members of the conservative church put off by President Donald Trump are switching sides and backing veteran Democrat Joe Biden.

Support for Trump among members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which emphasizes family values and morals, is especially lagging among women.

Experts say that could have a significant impact in some key battleground states -- notably Arizona and Nevada, where Mormons represent six percent of the population.

"There are things about Biden that I don't agree with, but I think it's more important not to vote for Trump," said Melarie Wheat, a 36-year-old mother of five who lives in the western state of Utah, where the LDS Church is headquartered.

Kushner and Trump's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, on Friday sent a letter to the Lincoln Project warning that the billboards were defamatory. “Those ads show Ms. Trump smiling and gesturing toward a death count of Americans and New Yorkers, and attribute to Mr. Kushner the statement that “[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that’s their problem” (alteration in original), with body bags underneath,” the letter read.
