Robber Shoves Firefighter While Trying to Rob a Convenience Store
A member of a Texas department stopped a robbery attempt last month. A video of the takedown was recently released by the police department. In it, a masked would-be robber pushes a customer, later identified as Mansfield firefighter and former Marine Daniel Gaskey, aside and puts a knife on the counter at around 6:18 a.m. Gaskey puts his hands up, pauses a moment, and then springs into action, jumping on the robber’s back, dragging him to the ground, and holding him there until police arrived, Midlothian police said. The robber was 19 year old Dylan Bearden, he was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery and is being held on a $200,000 bond. Get more here.
A Guy Got Busted for Cocaine, and Tried to Blame a Powdered Donut

Which was pretty dumb for multiple reasons, he’s also a convicted felon who’s not allowed to have firearms, and had a loaded gun in the car. But somehow, that wasn’t the dumbest part of it. When the cop walked up to his car, he noticed that Octavio’s hands were shaking, and his nose and mouth were covered in cocaine. But when he asked him about it, Octavio claimed it wasn’t drugs, it was because he’d just eaten a powdered donut. Not surprisingly, the cop didn’t buy it. He also found 17 Oxycodone pills in the car. So Octavio’s facing charges for unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of hollow-point bullets, possession of cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Get more here.
