NEW YORK – Police have arrested the scooter driver wanted in the hit-and-run death of “Gone Girl” actress Lisa Banes, officials said Friday. Brian Boyd, 26, was busted Thursday at his Upper West Side home — just steps from where the June 4 collision happened — and charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, as well as with failure to yield to a pedestrian.

Days after NBC's "Saturday Night Live" struggled through the season premiere of the show's 48th season, the longtime sketch comedy show was discussed in Michigan's gubernatorial election.
"A new Tudor Dixon ad is so cringe-worthy that we had to double check to make sure it wasn’t a parody," the Detroit Metro Times' Steve Neavling wrote Wednesday. "The video features a group of leather-clad bikers complaining about COVID-19 restrictions, rising gas prices, and abortion rights."
The story was published under the headline, "New Tudor Dixon ad could be an ‘SNL’ skit gone bad."
"The video is dubbed with emotional orchestral music, and the acting is awful," the weekly reported.
After the group complains about Whitmer, the video reaches its climax.
"Okay, okay, I’m voting for the other chick. What’s her name?” a biker asks.
The other six characters replied, "Tudor Dixon."
'Every two weeks there's another scandal!' Bill O'Reilly fumes about Herschel Walker's chaos-filled campaign
Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly appeared visibly frustrated this week after Trump-backed Senate candidate Herschel Walker's campaign was beset by multiple scandals.
O'Reilly started off by noting that the scandals surrounding Walker and his multiple secret children have been steadily dripping in for months now, so the latest bombshell claims about him allegedly paying for an abortion and threatening to kill his family aren't as shocking as they otherwise might be.
"Every two weeks there's another scandal about Herschel Walker," he railed. "And the latest one is that he had a girlfriend and he paid for an abortion."
O'Reilly went on to give Walker some practical advice: Either hold in news conference in which you announce a defamation suit against The Daily Beast, or lose the race to Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA).
"And you have to do that now!" O'Reilly implored him. "So that the people in Georgia going, 'What the deuce is this, every two weeks we've got another child fathered by Mr. Walker, or this, or whatever!' But if this is not true, your lawyers have to mobilize now!"

On Wednesday, The Daily Beast reported that Christopher Geldart, the deputy mayor for public safety and justice in Washington, D.C., has been suspended following his alleged violent assault on a trainer in a gym parking lot.
According to the report, Mayor Muriel Bowser said that the fight looks like "a dispute over something minor" and the incident is "in review."
"Geldart, 53, was charged after a Saturday altercation with a trainer in an Arlington gym parking lot, with police saying he grabbed the victim 'by the throat,'" reported A.J. McDougall. "In surveillance footage obtained by FOX 5, Geldart (in the clip, he is the larger man on the right) can be seen chest-to-chest with the alleged victim, Dustin Woodward."
"Geldart began cursing and screaming, according to Woodward, after opening his car door and hitting the trainer’s girlfriend’s vehicle. The confrontation briefly became physical after Woodward told him to 'shut up,' the trainer added," the report continued. "Woodward told him to 'shut up,' the trainer added. 'He’s way too big to be trying to be a bully, especially with his position,' he said. 'Something should be done.'"
This comes amid a number of scandals that are facing D.C. law enforcement in the past year.
In July, a D.C. police officer was arrested and charged with sexual abuse of a little girl. And at the end of last month, seven D.C. officers were removed from the violent crime division following allegations they took guns from suspects without making arrests.
