  1. New York Published 1 hour ago New York man allegedly impersonating a police officer pulls over van of detectives By Nicole Darrah | Fox News close Fox News Flash top headlines for August 19 Fox News Flash top headlines for August 19 are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com A New York man was arrested on Friday after he allegedly tried to pull over a van while pretending to be a police officer except there was reportedly one problem: the van was filled with detectives. Valiery Portlock, 25, turned on emergency lights and sounded an airhorn in Hicksville, a city on Long Island roughly 30 miles east of New York City, on a roadway Friday morning as he tried to pull over a van, investigators said. Valiery Portlock, 25, was arrested last week for allegedly pulling over a van of police officers while pretending to be a police officer, officials said. (Nassau County Police Department) That van was full of detectives from the Nassau County Police Department's electronics squad, according to News 12 Long Island. As detectives identified themselves, Portlock allegedly tried to flee the scene. Authorities claim he drove away, swerved into oncoming traffic and eventually sped to the Long Island Expressway, where he was stopped by the highway patrol. Portlock was arrested without incident and charged with criminal impersonation, reckless endangerment and fleeing the police. He was released from custody on his own recognizance following an arraignment on Saturday. https://www.foxnews.com/us/new-york-man-impersonating-police-officer-pulls-over-detectives
  2. Reynoldsville Residents Facing Charges Following Domestic Disturbance August 19, 2019 12:39 am· Author: Aly Delp REYNOLDSVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – Two Reynoldsville residents are facing assault and related charges following a domestic incident that occurred on Wednesday, August 14. Court documents indicate the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 23-year-old Trent Edward Lee and 28-year-old Kayla Ann Brodowsky. A criminal complaint said that on August 14 Chief Troy Bell of the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department was dispatched to a residence on Main Street for a domestic disturbance where the caller, Kayla Brodowsky, said she and her boyfriend, Trent Lee, struck each other, and her boyfriend took a knife and left. It was reported that Lee was wearing a grey shirt and black pants. The complaint noted that Brodowsky also reported she had asthma, had been struck in the side, and was having difficulty breathing. Chief Bell responded to the area and saw a male fitting the description. According to the complaint, when Chief Bell pulled up nearby, the male ran between buildings to the rear of the properties. Chief Bell then followed but was unable to locate the man. Chief Bell then went to speak with Brodowsky. According to the complaint, she reported that she and Lee got into an argument that escalated. She said she then tried to get him to leave but Lee grabbed her by the neck and struck her. While Chief Bell was interviewing Brodowsky, he was contacted by a probation officer who had located Lee. The probation officer reported Lee did not stop for him and continued walking back First Street through the dead-end into a wooded area. Chief Bell proceeded to the area and observed two probation officers walking with Lee into the woods. The complaint noted that when Chief Bell approached, Lee became argumentative. Lee was then detained and transported back to the scene of the incident. Brodowsky was transported by ambulance to Penn Highlands DuBois before Chief Bell returned with Lee. According to the complaint, in an interview, Lee stated he and Brodowsky had argued several times in the past and have had four PFAs against one another but always dropped them. Lee reported that during the August 14 argument, Brodowsky grabbed him by the ears, and he then shoved her arms off of him. The complaint notes Lee also claimed Brodowsky hit him in the face first, and he then struck her back in the torso. He also stated he “was not sure” if he grabbed Brodowsky by the neck or not. Chief Bell then spoke to Brodowsky again, by phone. According to the complaint, she stated that during the argument Lee began calling her names. She then grabbed his cell phone in an attempt to get him out of the residence after asking him to leave several times. She said Lee grabbed her by the neck breaking her necklace, and she then struck him in the face with the cell phone. Brodowsky went on to report that she grabbed Lee by the ears to try to escort him from the residence, according to the complaint. She said Lee then punched her in the stomach, then punched her again in the back and once more in the stomach. Brodowsky reported Lee stood up, pulled out a knife, opened the blade, and moved to the door. She then told him she was calling the police. Lee and Brodowsky were both arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana at 3:30 p.m. on August 14. Lee faces the following charges: – Terroristic Threats With Intent To Terrorize Another, Misdemeanor 1 – Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2 – Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary Unable to post $10,000.00 monetary bail, he was lodged in the Jefferson County Jail. Brodowsky faces the following charges: – Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2 – Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary She remains free on $10,000.00 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, August 27, with Judge Inzana presiding. https://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/complaints-kayla-brodowsky-and-trent-lee-simple-assault/

  6. Man Falls to His Death After Climbing Cell Tower August 10, 2019 12:30 am· Author: exploreJefferson VENANGO CO., Pa. (EYT) – Police have released details on a man who fell to his death after climbing a cell tower in Venango County early Thursday morning. According to Franklin-based State Police, around 3:56 a.m. on Thursday, August 8, officers responded to the area of 523 Cooperstown Road in Jackson Township, Venango County, which was a neighboring property of 419 Cooperstown Road, for an apparent death investigation. The victim identified as 55-year-old William Eugene Wall, of Centerville, went from the neighboring property where family and friends were having a campfire to a nearby AT&T Tower on the adjacent property approximately 250 yards away. The victim then climbed an approximate seven-foot property fence that surrounded the AT&T Tower in a low-lighted area. The victim then climbed the 280-foot tall cellular tower for unknown means. The weather conditions consisted of a heavy fog that made the cellular tower slippery, and the victim is believed to have slipped while climbing to the top of the cellular tower, falling to the ground where he succumbed from his injuries. Life-saving measures were attempted by family members but were unsuccessful. PSP is currently investigating this incident as an accidental death due to the victim’s fall. The investigation is on-going with the assistance of the Venango County Coroner. Several calls to Venango County Coroner Christina Rugh have not been returned.

  11. Is the 5-second rule true? What happens to food dropped on the floor Is the food still safe if you pick it up right away or will it make you sick? Sept. 21, 2016, 9:40 AM EDT / Source: TODAY By Barbara Mantel Everyone's done it: Dropped some food on the floor, quickly picked it up and eaten it -- or fed it to a child. The old 5-second rule claims bacteria will have no time to climb aboard if the food hasn't been in contact with the floor for more than five seconds. But is it right? Wrong, according to researchers at Rutgers University, who studied four different foods, dropped onto four different surfaces, for four different amounts of time. As part of the test, the researchers liberally applied Enterobacter aerogenes, a nonpathogenic “cousin” of salmonella, to each surface. “At the shortest amount of time we studied, which was a fraction of a second, no matter what food and what surface, we always found some bacteria transfer in at least one of our experimental trials,” says Donald Schaffner, a food science professor at Rutgers University and the lead author of the paper, published in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology. The researchers conducted multiple trials of each combination of food, surface and contact time. Seconds count While they showed the 5-second rule to be untrue, time does matter, said Schaffner. For many foods and many surfaces, the longer the food sat on the floor, the more bacteria it collected. That’s probably gravity at work, he said, pressing the food down and expanding the surface area in contact with the floor’s germs. You may think it's no big deal, but about 12 percent of food-borne illness reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the result of cross-contamination of food from surfaces. Related: Is the five-second rule real? Why research says the '10-second rule' is dangerous and could kill you March 29, 201601:57 To eat or not to eat In the study, not all foods were bacteria magnets and not all surfaces easily parted with bacteria. Carpet can be hard to clean compared to stainless steel, ceramic tile and wood. But, of the four, carpet transferred the least bacteria in the study. That’s because the bacteria sank down into the carpet’s fibers and away from its surface, said Schaffner. As far as the foods, watermelon had the most contamination, while gummy candy had the least. Bread and butter and plain bread were between the two extremes. “Watermelon was the most moist food we studied, and we saw almost all the bacteria transfer in the fraction of a second,” said Schaffner. The other contact times were five, 30 and 300 seconds. Bacteria need some way to get from point to point, and water is a great vehicle for that, he says. Related Food FoodAre you defrosting chicken correctly? 10 frozen food safety myths debunked The results for wood, stainless steel and tile varied depending on food and contact time. There have been other, sometimes contradictory, tests of the 5-second rule, but only one other peer-reviewed published paper in 2006. In that research, Clemson University researchers used bologna and bread and came to basically the same conclusion as the new report: If you eat food dropped on the floor, you’re taking a chance no matter how long it’s sat there, said food safety expert Paul Dawson, lead author of the Clemson study. “It really depends on what’s on that floor,” said Dawson. Before you eat the dropped food, stop. Think. Do you have pets who’ve stepped into who knows what or people tramping about your kitchen in dirty shoes? Another consideration: Who is eating the floor food? “Is the person very young, very old or immune compromised? All those things put that person at a higher risk of getting sick,” said Schaffner.
