A young woman who worked at a daycare center located in Bryant, Arkansas, has been brought up on charges after a video was captured allegedly depicting her administering abusive behavior toward two young children.

19-year-old McKenzie Howell had worked with youngsters at the Kid’s Academy Daycare in Bryant for over a year when another employee, who is also the mother of a 2-year-old boy enrolled at the center, had concerns that her son was being mistreated when he was in Howell’s care. Upon reviewing a security video recorded at the facility showing a woman that is believed to be Howell acting in a manner that alarmed her, she notified the Child Abuse Hotline and the authorities.

The police watched the video footage and saw a woman that they suspect is Howell being forceful with the way she handled a little boy and little girl who were said to be about two-years-old. After viewing what one of the officers described as content that was difficult to watch, a warrant for Howell’s arrest was issued for the allegations.

A gun was fired in Indiana Park on Monday when two grandmothers got into an argument concerning visitation of their grandchild. Both of the women are facing charges and were taken into custody for the allegations.

On June 25, 45-year-old Cristy D. Horton and 47-year-old Tammy Brickles were at Riley Park with their grown children so that one of the women could collect her grandchild for a visit. They had met there after a day that was reportedly filled with disputes between the families because Horton wanted to take her grandson to a fair at the park, and she was told she could not.

The families met at the park just after 6:00 p.m. and the child was inside of one of the cars when the grandmothers reportedly began to argue regarding visitation, and the situation became intense very rapidly. Horton purportedly grabbed a gun, resulting in her son quickly trying to get involved and to take possession of the weapon. At one point during the scuffle, the gun was discharged.

A patrol sergeant who has been with the Denton County Sheriff’s Office for over two decades was accused of soliciting sex from a minor with an online advertisement after he allegedly arranged a sexual encounter with an officer posing as a 16-year-old boy.

46-year-old Weston Jordan, a man who began his career as a detention officer and was promoted over time to the position of patrol sergeant, has worked with the Denton County Sheriff’s office for 25 years.

On Tuesday investigators began an in-depth examination of Jordan’s activities after gaining awareness of a Craigslist ad he allegedly posted seeking sexual relations with underage gay males. One of the investigators posed as a 16-year-old boy and contacted Jordan with a fake profile and using it to respond with interest, but he explained that he was without transportation.

A police officer for the New York Police Department was fired for a positive drug test result showing methamphetamines in his system, but the cop has denied the allegations and stated the results were compromised by his apparel.

Nearly 20 years ago the NYPD began implementing drug testing through collection of hair instead of the previously used urine tests. This method was chosen as the best way to ensure officers were not under the influence of narcotics due to the fact that testing the hair is reportedly more reliable, can detect substances in the system for a much longer period, and are less costly than urine sample tests.

33-year-old NYPD officer Brian Quire served on the Manhattan warrant squad and held a position with the police department for 12 years. Quire earned the nickname “Legs” by his colleagues due to his regular choice of shorts for his attire.
