  1. FLORIDA Published 1 day ago Family dog protects boy, 3, lost in Florida woods until police arrived By Danielle Wallace | Fox News Fox News Flash top headlines for Feb. 19 Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com. Little man’s best friend. A family dog in Florida has been hailed as a very good boy after he followed a 3-year-old -- who accidentally wandered into the woods and got lost Tuesday -- and protected the child until they were found by police. A woman in Suwannee County, located about 150 miles south of the Georgia border, called 9-1-1 Tuesday and told dispatchers her 3-year-old son was playing outside with his siblings and wandered away, the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post. The family’s dog, Buddy, was also missing, she told the dispatcher. Suwannee County Sheriff's Office patrol deputies and investigators responded to the home and began to look for the child. Suwannee Correctional Institution K9 units were also called in to aid in the search. As the search was underway, a nearby neighbor called 9-1-1 to report he had found a small child and a dog in the woods by his house. The man told the dispatcher the dog wouldn’t let him approach the boy. “Fortunately, we were able to reunite the child with his mother, thanks in part to 'man's best friend' and an alert neighbor,” Suwannee County Sheriff's Office said in its Facebook post. The office used the hashtags “give that dog a bone,” “man’s best friend,” and “Lassi ain’t got nothing on Buddy.” SEE VIDEO REPORT, FACEBOOK POST ; https://www.foxnews.com/us/florida-family-dog-protects-boy-3-woods
  2. DuBois Man Pleads Guilty in Assault Cases Posted on Thursday, February 20, 2020 by Jessica Shirey in Crime, Local News, Top Stories CLEARFIELD – A DuBois man accused of strangling a woman two times on the same day pleaded guilty to lesser charges Wednesday in Clearfield County Court. Matthew Shane Gallahan, 34, was originally charged by Sandy Township police in two, separate cases with felony strangulation and misdemeanor simple assault. Gallahan agreed to enter a guilty plea to one count of simple assault in each case before Judge Paul E. Cherry. Per the agreement, he’ll receive a minimum sentence of two years of incarceration with his maximum to be determined by the court. Cherry accepted the plea cancelling the two-day jury trial that was scheduled to begin Wednesday and dismissing the jury panel. Cherry ordered for the Probation Department to conduct a pre-sentencing investigation and for Gallahan to be scheduled for sentencing within 60 days. According to the affidavit of probable cause filed with the office of Magisterial District Judge Pat Ford, the first assault occurred around 1 a.m. July 28, at a Sandy Township residence. When police spoke with the victim at the scene, she said that Gallahan was high on methamphetamine and had struck her several times. She said they’d argued throughout the day, but it turned physical right before she called for help. She also said she tried to leave, but that Gallahan would not let her. She said he started to slap her in the face, then walked up behind her and placed her in chokehold. She told police she was unable to breathe and went unconscious. After he let go and she became conscious again, she said he retrieved a large butcher knife from the kitchen. When he started to walk towards her, she ran upstairs, she told police. She said he put the knife down after he heard her on the phone with 911, and fled from the residence. Police conducted a search of the area but didn’t locate Gallahan. The second assault occurred later on that same morning when Gallahan wrapped his arm around her neck and choked her, the victim told police. She said she was able to get into her car and lock the doors. She said that Gallahan proceeded to punch in the window, which made her start the car and leave. Gallahan is being held at the Clearfield County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail in the first case and $5,000 for the second case. https://gantdaily.com/2020/02/20/dubois-man-pleads-guilty-in-assault-cases/
  3. NFL player Greg Robinson arrested for allegedly possessing 157 pounds of marijuana at U.S.-Mexico border BY TYLER SULLIVAN AND JORDAN DAJANI FEBRUARY 20, 2020 / 11:22 AM / CBS SPORTS NFL offensive tackle Greg Robinson and free agent wide receiver Quan Bray were arrested at the Sierra Blanca border checkpoint near the United States and Mexico border this week, according to an official statement from the Department of Justice in the Western District of Texas. The statement alleges Robinson and Bray were in possession of about 157 pounds of marijuana, which was stored inside several large duffle bags in the rear cargo area of a vehicle they were driving. TMZ was first to report this story. According to the statement, on Monday evening, the defendants approached the Sierra Blanca Checkpoint Station, where a U.S. Border Patrol canine unit alerted on their vehicle. A subsequent inspection revealed the presence of approximately 157 pounds of marijuana. Both were charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Offensive tackle Greg Robinson of the Cleveland Browns is seen on the bench during a game against the Arizona Cardinals on December 15, 2019, in Glendale, Arizona.CHRISTIAN PETERSEN/GETTY IMAGES The 27-year-old Robinson is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason after spending the past two seasons with the Cleveland Browns. According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Browns had no intention of re-signing Robinson, so his next step in the NFL is a bit uncertain. Robinson entered the league as the No. 2 overall pick of the then-St. Louis Rams after a stellar all-SEC career at Auburn. While he came into the NFL as a highly touted prospect, he never panned out for the Rams, who eventually traded him to the Detroit Lions in 2017 for a sixth-round draft choice. Injuries derailed his time with the Lions and Robinson eventually found his way to Cleveland. He started in 22 of his 31 games played for the Browns, but the offensive tackle wasn't particularly as dominant as many had hoped when he first stepped into the NFL. That poor play on the field coupled with this arrest down by the border likely won't do him any favors landing a new gig somewhere in the NFL when free agency opens in mid-March. That said, where he plays football in 2020 is likely the least of his worries at the moment. Robinson's alleged partner, Bray, played football at Auburn and bounced around the NFL with three different teams before short stints in the Alliance of American Football as well as the Canadian Football League. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/nfl-player-greg-robinson-arrested-for-allegedly-possessing-157-pounds-of-marijuana-at-us-mexico-border/

  9. Oklahoma couple arrested for child neglect after 11-year-old eats pot brownie by Ethan Hutchins, KTUL staff Thursday, February 20th 2020 AA Claremore police have arrested a couple accused of child neglect after investigators say an 11-year-old ate a pot brownie. (KTUL) CLAREMORE, Okla., (KTUL) -- Claremore, Oklahoma, police have arrested a couple accused of child neglect after investigators say an 11-year-old ate a pot brownie. Police say the child then showed up to school under the influence. It's a growing trend in Oklahoma. Children getting exposed to edible medical marijuana ever since it became legal last year. "Whenever you talk about edibles the THC quality is extremely high," said Officer Brian Burnett. The most recent case happened last week in Claremore. The first of what officer Brian Burnett believes could be many more cases. "I am concerned that that could happen more often," said Burnett. Court documents state that the child attends Claremore Public Schools and had reportedly told a fellow student that she had eaten a pot brownie before school. Those documents say counselors noticed something was different about the student. "It's very dangerous for someone of that age to access that," said Burnett. A danger to children in Oklahoma that doctors have seen grow since legalization. "There has been three times as much exposure to medical marijuana in children of all ages," said Dr. Allison Sajan. Dr. Allison Sajan is a pediatrician in south Tulsa. She says higher levels of THC found in edibles can cause serious issues for children. "Their nervous system can slow down to the point that they stop breathing and they go into a coma," said Sajan. In the case in Claremore, court documents say the two arrested, admitted to growing marijuana in the house." The child told police she sometimes helps water the plants and has access to marijuana muffins and brownies. "It's their obligation to protect that child and in this case, they didn't," said Burnett. Police say both have medical marijuana licenses and both have been charged with child neglect. Doctors say if you do use medical marijuana make sure you store it in a childproof container away from their reach at all times.
