Florida pastor arrested for taking photos up woman's dress

A former pastor was arrested on charges of video voyeurism after a member of a Deltona church reported that he took a photo up her dress when she was in his office with his children after a Sunday service, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

Brian Kenyon Jr., 31, of Lakeland, was arrested Thursday afternoon the week after a warrant was issued for his arrest, deputies said.

The 41-year-old woman told a deputy that the incident happened when she attended Sunday service on April 8 at the Church of Christ of Deltona on Providence Boulevard.

The victim said she was meeting with Kenyon in his office, along with his children, and he asked her to put his youngest child into a car seat. The victim said that when she bent over, she felt skin against her leg, turned around and found Kenyon bent over directly behind her.

Deputies said the victim noticed Kenyon was holding his cellphone and it had a red light on.

Deputies say when the woman and members of the church confronted him about it he called it a misunderstanding and said he had a "pornography problem."

When they confronted the pastor about it again 11 days later, deputies said the pastor had some sort of spiritual awakening and confessed to the act saying a "dark moment" came over him.

They say he claimed to delete the photo and he was promptly dismissed from the church.

“Church staff reported he had no unsupervised contact with children at the church, and the church had not received any complaints about any inappropriate behavior with children,” a news release said.

Anyone with information about other incidents involving Kenyon is asked to contact the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

Kenyon was released from the Volusia County Branch Jail on Thursday after posting $2,500 bail.

Massachusetts man plays same lottery numbers 9 times -- and wins

A father of two from Brockton, Massachusetts has won $900,000 in the state’s Mass Cash drawing after playing the same lottery numbers nine times at nine different ticket locations.

>> Read more trending news 

Robert Lundstedt told the Bridgewater Independent that he has played the same five numbers -- 1-7-11-26-30 -- in the state lottery for the last 26 years.

He told Mass Cash that he felt lucky on Monday, so much so that he purchased nine different tickets with the same numbers -- each worth $100,000 each.

Before Monday night’s drawing, Lundstedt gave one ticket to his daughter, Kristen Lundstedt, and one ticket to his son, Brian Lundstedt.

According to the Massachusetts state lottery, Lundstedt didn’t realize he won Monday’s drawing until he stopped by the store to buy paper towels the next day.

The trio stopped by the lottery offices to pick up their prizes on July 11. 

The Lundstedt children each received $100,000 before taxes. They both told Mass Cash they plan to use the money to pay off their student loans.

Lundstedt, a carpenter, took home about $700,000 before taxes.

He said he planned to use the money to pay off the mortgage on his home.

Man describes finding intruder with hatchet in his bed

A man in Middletown, Ohio is facing felony charges after he was discovered in a couple’s bed with a hatchet and his pants pulled down

Michael Robert McClain, 30, was arrested after a woman came home and found him, WHIO reports.

>> Read more trending news 

McClain is charged with aggravated burglary, felonious assault and public indecency.

Officers said they were called to a burglary report to a home on Woodlawn Avenue on July 6.

Investigators said the man was lying in bed “with his pants down” with a hatchet in his hand, according to the police report.

The woman called for her husband to get the man out of the house.

The husband then attempted to wake up the man to get him out of his house.

During a preliminary hearing Friday in Middletown Municipal Court, the husband testified McClain was asleep on his wife’s side of the bed “propped up, covers pulled to one side and all my pillows behind him.” 

He believes McClain entered the home through an unlocked back door.

The man’s wife, children and other family members had just returned home from watching fireworks, he said, noting he was at a home just one minute away.

“He got up with the hatchet in his hand,” the homeowner said. “I hit him on the head with my gun.”

He testified that he and McClain fought and struggled through the house.

He said he attempted to use some boxing skills to keep McClain at arm’s length. Eventually, the man was able to push McClain out the home’s back door.

When McClain made a move back toward the man, he said he fired a shot into the ground. He fired a second shot before McClain left his yard, he said.

During the incident the man said McClain was “swinging the hatchet.”

“I was in fear for my family, not for me, but for my family,” he said, noting his wife and young children were huddled together on the home’s porch during the incident.

The man said he had only seen McClain once before, about a week prior when he was asking his wife for water.

Municipal Court Judge James Sherron found sufficient evidence to bind McClain’s case over to a grand jury.

McClain’s bond is set at $450,000.

FDA recalls common heart drug over cancer concerns

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a voluntary recall on Friday of a drug commonly used to control blood pressure and prevent heart failure.

>> Read more trending news 

The drug, valsartan, is often a component of generic medicines, but not all heart medicines that contain valsartan are involved in the recall, the FDA warns.

The recall is due to the presence of an impurity, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). It is an organic chemical that is often used in rocket fuel, softeners and lubricants. 

NDMA is a known cancer risk. Studies on animals show that NDMA can be toxic and cause tumors to the liver, kidney and respiratory tract. Humans exposed to high levels of NDMA can experience liver damage that could result in cancer, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Drug manufacturers affected include Major Pharmaceuticals, Solco Healthcare and Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries, Ltd.

The recall also includes valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) medication sold by Solco Healthcare and Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries, Ltd.

“We have carefully assessed the valsartan-containing medications sold in the United States, and we've found that the valsartan sold by these specific companies does not meet our safety standards,” said Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “This is why we've asked these companies to take immediate action to protect patients.”

The FDA’s investigation into the drugs are ongoing.

Experts warn that patients who are on heart-monitoring medication should talk to their doctor to see if their prescriptions are affected.

Doctors say patients should not stop taking heart medications without a doctor’s supervision, because it could cause a life-ending catastrophe, according to the American Heart Association.

Police search for Greenpeace paraglider that flew too close to Trump’s golf resort in Scotland

Police in Scotland are searching for a paraglider who flew a Greenpeace banner over U.S. President Donald Trump’s golf resort in Turnberry, Scotland.

Authorities say the paraglider violated a no-fly zone.

>> Read more trending news 

The paraglider carried a banner that read, “Trump: Well Below Par,” to protest Trump’s policies on immigration and environmental regulations. 

Anti-Trump organizers organized a “carnival of resistance” outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh on Saturday.

David Milne, whose property overlooks the golf course, told the Associated Press he will mark Trump’s visit by flying the Mexican national flag over his house within sight of the clubhouse.

Trump is spending the weekend at his Turnberry property as he prepares for a high-stakes summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday.

This comes on the heels of his visit to England for several meetings, including tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

Trump has a long-professed adoration of Scotland; his mother was born in Stoneway.

He owns two championship-level golf resorts in the country, including the seaside Turnberry resort.

Jaguar escapes habitat, kills 6 animals at Audubon Zoo in New Orleans

A jaguar escaped from its habitat at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans and killed six animals, the zoo reported.

>> Read more trending news 

A male jaguar got out of its enclosure around 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning and killed four alpaca, one emu and one fox, The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.

No people were hurt and the zoo was not open to the public at the time of the attack.

“The animal care team is devastated by this tragic loss,” the Audubon Zoo stated in a news release. “Today is a difficult day for the Audubon family.”

The jaguars at the zoo are located in an exhibit called the “Jaguar Jungle,” which houses other animals, including the alpaca closure.

The zoo will remain closed Saturday while officials investigate how the escape happened, WDSU reports.

Angelique Kerber defeats Serena Williams in Wimbledon final

German tennis star Angelique Kerber beat Serena Williams 6-3, 6-3 in the women’s final Saturday at Wimbledon, taking home her first championship title.

>> Read more trending news 

Williams, 36, fell short of her eighth Wimbledon trophy and a chance to score a record 24th Grand Slam title at Wimbledon.

The match between Kerber and Williams was stalled for over an hour Saturday, until after the men’s semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal was completed.

Saturday’s tournament was Williams’ fourth appearance since she began her comeback after a 14-month hiatus. Williams came into the fortnight ranked No. 181 and was seeded 25th at Wimbledon because of her previous success at the event.

Williams’ victory would have made her the fourth mother ever to win a Grand Slam event.

Williams gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia in September 2017. She had to deal with a health scare after the emergency cesarean section when small blood clots were found on her lungs, CNN reported.

The last time Williams and Kerber met in a Grand Slam final was at Wimbledon in 2016. That year, Williams won her seventh major title on grass, 7-5, 6-3.

That was Williams’ second straight Wimbledon title, won in the early stages of her pregnancy. She sat out last year’s grass-court tournament after winning the Australian Open several months earlier.

Her first Grand Slam tournament was the French Open. Williams won three matches before withdrawing because of an injured chest muscle.

Trump criticized for walking in front of Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle

U.S. President Donald Trump’s highly-anticipated meeting with Queen Elizabeth II raised eyebrows with etiquette experts after their walk in Windsor Castle.

Trump briefly walked in front of the queen during a review of the troops.

In the encounter, Queen Elizabeth appears to gesture Trump forward.

He walks ahead, then promptly stops and the queen does an awkward sidestep around him.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told CNN Trump looked like “he might as well have been wandering up and down a golf course.”

However, Fitzwilliams said Trump didn’t technically break protocol, but gave the impression of “dis-coordination.”

“It proves he (Trump) doesn’t bother to rehearse, because he doesn’t think he needs to,” Fitzwilliams said

Trump also caused a buzz when it appeared he kept the queen waiting for tea.

The 92-year-old Queen appeared to uncomfortably shift in her jacket and hat and check her watch while waiting for the Trumps. 

CNN reports the Trumps were on time for tea, arriving at 5 p.m. 

When Trump and First Lady Melania Trump first met the Queen at the beginning of their visit, they shook her hand, rather than bowing or curtsying -- after Queen Elizabeth offered her hand, first.

“The queen doesn't expect people to bow to her, though many choose to anyway," said CNN royal correspondent Max Foster.

Trump is the 12th U.S. president to visit the queen during her reign.

His visit has been marked with massive protests in London, including a massive Trump baby balloon.

Russian hackers indicted: Who is Guccifer 2.0? Here are 15 things to know

In the indictment released on Friday, the Department of Justice named Russian intelligence agents they say were behind the personas used on the internet to make public the information stolen from the Democratic party and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

>> Read more trending news

The 11-count indictment described how Russian military agents used cyberattacks to trick people into letting them plant malware files on computer systems in order to steal information.

The information, once gathered, was disseminated to the public using fake internet personas to leak the information to the public, the indictment says.

>>12 Russians indicted: Here’s what the DOJ says happened

Two of those personas – DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0 – were named in Friday’s indictment. There were others.

While DC Leaks had both a Twitter account and a Facebook page, Guccifer 2.0 had more direct interaction with people the Russians hoped would share the stolen information.

>>Russian hacking: Read the indictment charging Russian intelligence officers with election interference

What we know about Guccifer 2.0, based on the indictment: 

  1. In June 2016, Guccifer 2.0 began posting its hacked material through a WordPress site.
  2. Guccifer 2.0 shared stolen documents with journalists, a lobbyist, a U.S. congressional candidate, something called “Organization 1,” which appears to be WikiLeaks, and a person in touch with the Trump campaign, who was revealed to be Roger Stone.
  3. Guccifer 2.0 took his name from Guccifer, a Romanian hacker who became famous after he stole information from celebrities and political figures and posted it online.
  4. Guccifer 2.0 is believed to be several Russians, not just one person. 
  5. While Guccifer 2.0 used WikiLeaks, Organization 1 in the indictment, to disperse the information hacked from the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Clinton’s campaign, “he” also shared documents on “his” own WordPress blog.
  6. “He” interacted with people over social media, particularly Twitter direct messages, including reporters and, as mentioned in the indictment, Trump confidant Roger Stone.
  7. “He” provided documents to a U.S. congressional candidate who asked for information on an opponent.
  8. Guccifer 2.0 told reporters and others that he was from Romania. He claimed that Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor who exposed intelligence surveillance secrets and Chelsea Manning (formerly known as Bradley Manning), a soldier convicted of espionage, inspired “him” to be an activist. 
  9. Guccifer 2.0's first leaks came immediately after a Washington Post story attributed the DNC hack to Russia, and most experts believe that the persona was an attempt to salvage what they could out of a blown operation.
  10. The indictment says that Russian intelligence operatives ran searches of phrases in Guccifer 2.0's first WordPress before the post went live. Investigators suggest that that showed the Russians knew a blog was to be published before it was.
  11. Guccifer 2.0 contacted WikiLeaks to transfer stolen documents in late June 2016, weeks before the Democratic National Convention, but could not transfer the information. Instead, Guccifer 2.0 gave WikiLeaks access to an online archive of stolen files. About three weeks later, WikiLeaks published 20,000 emails and other documents stolen from the DNC.
  12. On Aug. 22, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 transferred 2.5 gigabytes of stolen DCCC data to a registered state lobbyist and political news website.
  13. Also on that day, Guccifer 2.0 sent information to a reporter about the Black Lives Matter movement. The reporter asked when would be the best time to publish a story based on the information.
  14. Guccifer 2.0 presented himself as a single apolitical hacker. 
  15. In January 2017, Guccifer 2.0 said he had no connection to the Russian government.
