    A motorist has been arrested in connection with the fatal hit-and-run collision of a 67-year-old bicyclist in Fullerton on Thursday, police said. Jonathan Ocampos, 21, from Anaheim was arrested late Thursday afternoon on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and vehicular manslaughter, the Fullerton Police Department said in a new release. Ocampos was driving a green 1999 Ford F-250 traveling westbound on Chapman Avenue at about 5 a.m. when he struck Andrade from behind as he approached Ladera Vista Drive, police said. Ocampos then fled the scene. “The bicyclist was thrown from his bike, hitting a brick planter,” police said in a statement. “The vehicle continued westbound on Chapman Avenue, leaving a debris field as it struck the sidewalk multiple times.” Arriving at the scene, officers found the bicyclist, whom family identified as Elfego Andrade, lying in the street. Andrade was transported to a local hospital, where he died, authorities said. Police were later contacted by a witness who was following Ocampos’ truck traveling westbound on Chapman Avenue. The vehicle was missing a tire, the witness said. The...
    After allegedly cleaning up his life, Chapman built a large following on Twitter by reposting content generated by others, frequently without attribution. Chapman also frequently peddles discredited hoaxes and misinformation on his Twitter account, which has over one million followers. In spite of his well-documented struggles with the truth — or perhaps because of them — Chapman was hired by CNN in January 2022 as a host for its now-defunct CNN+ streaming service. Bizarrely, Chapman responded to criticism of his overtly racist criticism of Clarence Thomas by suggesting that the people who are criticizing him are somehow racist. \u201cBeen dealing with racists a lot of years now. I welcome their hatred.\u201d — Rex Chapman\ud83c\udfc7\ud83c\udffc (@Rex Chapman\ud83c\udfc7\ud83c\udffc) 1656648928
    The University of Southern California said Wednesday that students from its prestigious film school appeared to have flouted university safety policies and procedures in carrying out the Imperial County film shoot in which a young cinematographer from Chapman University died. Peng Wang, a 29-year-old grad student volunteering on the production, died Friday when an off-road vehicle carrying him and three other student filmmakers rolled over on a large sand dune in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area, a remote expanse of desert three hours and more than 230 miles from the USC campus. USC said in a statement that under policies governing all student productions at its School of Cinematic Arts, “any shoot taking place more than 50 miles away from our campus, or involving the use of all-terrain vehicles, would have required very specific approvals from the school.” Company Town Cinematographer dies in sand dune accident involving Chapman and USC film students The group was taking pictures on a large sand dune in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area, authorities said. “We are unaware of any...
    OAKLAND — Mark Kotsay wants nothing to do with a comparative analysis on the trades that sent Chris Bassitt, Matt Olson, Matt Chapman and Sean Manaea elsewhere as part of a payroll purge. The A’s manager made that clear before the A’s opened their home schedule against the Baltimore Orioles. Any focus on individuals at the expense of the team is frowned upon. “This group isn’t about individuals by any measure,” Kotsay said. “We’re not here to prove trades. we’re here to play baseball. These guys’ mindset is they’ve got this opportunity in front of them to establish ourselves.” But with the A’s off to a surprising 6-5 start following a 5-5 eastern road swing and an Opening Night win over the Orioles, it can’t hurt to take a peak at how the principles in the four trades are faring in their new homes. March 12: Bassitt is traded to the New York Mets for Adam Oller and J.T. Ginn Bassitt is off to a great start with the Mets, who may lean on him as the No. 1 starter...

    NORTH PORT, Fla. – When Gabby Petito went missing and news broke that her fiancé Brian Laundrie had driven across the country without her in her van, people across the country tuned in for updates on her possible whereabouts.  Then the FBI uncovered her remains at a Wyoming campsite and Laundrie snuck off into the night – raising more questions and revealing few answers. Duane "Dog" Chapman, also known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, joined the search last week after friends, fans and family urged him to get involved, he said. Dog the Bounty Hunter searches an island off Fort De Soto Park near St. Petersburg, Fla. (Michael Ruiz/Fox News) GABBY PETITO HOMICIDE: TIMELINE OF DISAPPEARANCE WITH BRIAN LAUNDRIE But something stood out when he looked into the case. His daughter, Barbara Katy Chapman died, in a rollover car crash in Alaska near her Fairbanks home in 2006 – when she was 23 years old. Petito was 22. "Because I lost a daughter at about the same age, I know what the parents feel like," Chapman told Fox News....
    Reality TV star 'Dog the Bounty Hunter' claimed on Monday that he had found a campsite linked to the main person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito, saying: 'He's been here.' Brian Laundrie's whereabouts have been the subject of intense interest ever since his girlfriend's body was found in Wyoming on September 19.  On September 17, Laundrie - who returned to Florida alone on September 1 - was reported missing by his parents.  The FBI has taken over the search for Laundrie, and at the weekend the reality star, real name Duane Chapman, joined in the hunt. He said he had received over 1,000 tips from members of the public. On Monday he said he had located a camp site where the Laundrie family had stayed in early September.  Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, (pictured at the weekend outside the Laundrie house in North Port, Florida) said on Monday that he had located a campsite where the Laundrie family stayed in September Laundrie, 23, is the sole 'person of interest' in the homicide case...

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — It won’t be long until the Oakland A’s are squaring up to face their American League West rival Houston Astros on April 1 at the Oakland Coliseum. Just 13 days remain in Cactus League play, and this team doesn’t have too many questions to answer regarding the roster, but they do have a lot to prove. This core has made three straight postseason trips with exactly one series victory to show for it. Now this club has the same core back for a fourth year — with some intriguing new additions. What needs to happen for the A’s to repeat their success and chances at getting further in the postseason this year? Here’s a breakdown of just a few keys. Trevor Rosenthal can (somewhat) replicate Liam Hendriks’ production That’s a tall task, and maybe slightly unfair. Hendriks was arguably baseball’s most dominant closer in 2019 and 2020, posting a 1.78 ERA and 1.80 ERA in each season respectively. He only seemed to get stronger as he walked fewer batters and seemed to throw harder....
    PHOENIX, Ariz. — Not only will Elvis Andrus be wearing a different uniform for the first time in his 12-year career, but a different number, too. Switching from the No. 1 the Texas Rangers issued a spry Andrus in his rookie year to No. 17, his father’s favorite number, signifies a turning point for the 31-year-old shortstop. For the first time, the Texas mainstay will need to learn the ins and outs of a new club — and he’s welcoming the challenge. “No. 1, I can turn the page from that number and use the number I always wanted to which is 17,” Andrus said. Andrus’ arrival signals a shift for the A’s, too. For the first time since 2015, Marcus Semien won’t be manning shortstop. For whatever a mainstay amounts to in the A’s system, Semien had firmly cemented himself not only as one of them. A leader, a hometown hero, a player fans got to watch rise from defensive liability to MVP finalist in 2019. What do the A’s gain with Andrus and lose...
    Serena Williams and Meghan Markle may well have formed a close bond behind closed doors - but as far as the public is concerned, the tennis pro would rather everyone forget that she even knows the Duchess of Sussex's name.  The 39-year-old tennis pro gave her 'really good friend' a shout out in a new video interview with Vogue, but refused to say the former Suits star's name - joking to the cameras that she 'never says her name, never sees her' and 'doesn't know her'.  But while Serena may be doing her best to protect 39-year-old Meghan's privacy in public, she could not hide the bond between the two women - revealing, without uttering her close pal's moniker of course - that they have even been swapping beauty tips and product recommendations.   Staying mum: Serena Williams admitted in a recent Vogue video that she 'never says' close pal Meghan Markle's name in public, while joking that she 'doesn't know her' Hush hush: The 39-year-old mom-of-one shared the contents of her handbag in a clip for the British...
    The hammer has fallen on the Rays and Yankees. Aroldis Chapman, Aaron Boone and Kevin Cash have been handed suspensions of varying degrees for their dust-up in Tuesday night’s 5-3 Yankee win over Tampa Bay. The fireworks got started early, when Yankees started Masahiro Tanaka plunked Rays’ Joey Wendle with two outs in the top of the first, which many seems as intentional. Chapman tried to deliver some more vengeance on part of the Yankees by throwing at Michael Brosseau’s head in the ninth inning. MLB believes the near-miss was intentional. Cash had some pointed remarks on Tuesday night, calling the Yankees’ bean ball approach “poor coaching, poor judgement and poor teaching.” Here’s how the punishments were levvied:  Yankees suspensions Aroldis Chapman received a three-game ban for throwing near the head of Michael Brosseau during Tuesday night’s Rays vs. Yankees matchup in Yankee Stadium. The Yankees closer just missed Brosseau’s head by an few inches, but it is unclear if he intentionally threw at Brosseau.

    Matthew Chapman August 26, 2020 10:34PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story In an interview with the Washington Examiner on Wednesday, President Donald Trump demanded that both himself and Joe Biden submit to a drug test ahead of the presidential debates, arguing that there is "no way" that Biden suddenly got this good at debating. "Nobody thought that he was even going to win. Because his debate performances were so bad," said Trump. "Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie. We're going to call for a drug test, by the way, because his best performance was against Bernie. It wasn't that he was Winston Churchill because he wasn't, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test because there's no way — you can't do that." : "I don't know how he could have been so incompetent in his debate performances and then all of a sudden be OK against Bernie," added Trump. "My point is, if you go back and watch some of those numerous debates, he...
    Matthew Chapman August 19, 2020 3:18PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story Faced with nationwide outrage and lawsuits from nearly two dozen states, President Donald Trump's new postmaster general Louis DeJoy announced on Tuesday that he would be suspending several controversial new policy changes at the Postal Service that critics suspect are a deliberate effort to slow down the mail ahead of elections that will rely heavily on mail-in ballots. But according to CNN, postal union leaders do not take DeJoy at his word that everything is fixed. : "Miriam Bell, general president of a local chapter of the American Postal Workers Union in North Carolina, said seven sorting machines at a Charlotte postal facility have been either separated out, dismantled or entirely removed in recent weeks," reported Curt Devine and Paul Murphy.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Luke Voit homered twice, Aroldis Chapman returned from the COVID-19 injured list to pitch the ninth inning and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 6-3 Monday night for their 10th straight victory in the famed rivalry.

    Matthew Chapman August 10, 2020 11:40PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story On Monday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said that he "hopes" bipartisan talks on the next round of coronavirus pandemic stimulus break down — because he doesn't want the federal government to spend any more money on it. "Johnson said in a Friday interview with Breitbart News Tonight that he hopes negotiations stay broken down between the Trump administration and House Democratic leaders on a new pandemic relief package given the trillions Democratic leaders proposed in new spending," reported Molly Beck. "'From my standpoint, the breakdown in the talks is very good news. It's very good news for future generations,' Johnson said. 'I hope the talks remain broken down.'" : Johnson was a supporter of the 2017 Republican-backed tax bill that gave hundreds of billions of dollars to corporations and billionaires, with no means of paying for it.

    Monday night, the A’s were all in the parking lot. Idled. Most stayed in their cars or stepped out for a bit to talk with each other in a socially-distanced conversation. Meals were brought out, too. The Oakland A’s were willing to wait those two hours for final clearance to take the field after lags in testing results delayed position players’ report date by a day already. They were itching to get on the field and, finally, by 7 p.m., they were in. While this shined a bright light on glaring blips in Major League Baseball’s testing process at the onset, A’s third baseman Matt Chapman wondered why the A’s procrastinated on getting players into the Bay Area to start the testing process. “I know that it’s an honest mistake,” Chapman said on a call with reporters. “But I think that had we been a little more proactive and gotten guys into town a little earlier like some other organizations did and gotten testing done a few days before (July 1), there wouldn’t have been a testing...

    Matthew Chapman June 24, 2020 9:15AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story In a recent interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network, President Donald Trump was asked specifically what crime President Barack Obama committed as part of the vague conspiracy narrative the president calls "Obamagate." Trump responded, "treason." But on Tuesday, Politico reported that the president's staunchest Republican allies in the Senate aren't willing to back him up on this — including Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC). : "I don't know what he's talking about," said Graham. "I don't have any evidence to believe he committed treason." Some of his GOP colleagues agreed, with Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) saying, "I don't think that President Obama committed treason," and Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) saying, "It's a silly, comedic thing, and you guys got to stop taking it all so seriously." Treason is the only crime specifically defined in the U.S. Constitution — so done because the framers feared a broader definition could be used by an authoritarian leader to target political opponents.

    As leftists around the country destroy statue after statue, and companies do away with socially unacceptable symbols and images in a stunning flurry of wokeness, a Chicago Tribune editorial board member has declared that the Texas Rangers of Major League Baseball should toss their "racist" moniker into the "garbage dump of history." What are the details?Steve Chapman, in his "MLB's Texas Rangers should give up their name, which honors police force with brutal, racist history" op-ed, wrote that while the Texas Rangers of history have been "widely revered" in his native state, a recent treatise says they shouldn't be. Chapman said journalist Doug J. Swanson's "Cult of Glory: The Bold and Brutal History of the Texas Rangers" exposes their "long record of savagery, lawlessness, and racism." More from the op-ed:"They burned peasant villages and slaughtered innocents," he writes. "They committed war crimes. Their murders of Mexicans and Mexican Americans made them as feared on the border as the Ku Klux Klan in the South."

    Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers should change their team name because of its ties to brutality and racism, a Chicago Tribune columnist argued Thursday. Steve Chapman wrote that the Rangers were “revered” in Texas but “the legends omit a lot of the reality.” Chapman cites the book “Cult of Glory: The Bold and Brutal History of the Texas Rangers” by Doug J. Swanson as the main reason for the organization to change the name. BOSTON RED SOX PROSPECT NOAH SONG ORDERED TO REPORT TO NAVY FLIGHT SCHOOL: REPORT “They burned peasant villages and slaughtered innocents,” Swanson wrote in the book. “They committed war crimes. Their murders of Mexicans and Mexican Americans made them as feared on the border as the Ku Klux Klan in the South.” Chapman added: “A century ago, during the fighting that took place along the border during the Mexican Revolution, blood flowed like the Rio Grande." According to Swanson’s book, “The terms ‘death squads’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ would not enter common usage for another sixty years or so but that was what the Rangers were and...
