Boy stabs brother, says jail's better than 8-hour drive, Florida deputies say

Boy stabs brother, says jail's better than 8-hour drive, Florida deputies say Florida authorities say a 13-year-old Tennessee boy charged with stabbing his brother told investigators he'd rather go to jail than spend 8 hours in the car with his sibling. Deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office arrested the boy Saturday and charged him with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Investigators say he stabbed his 15-year-old brother in the arm three times with a pocket knife. As he was being questioned about the incident, he said he understood his rights and that he didn't regret stabbing his brother, who had been teasing him. Deputies say the boy told them, "I'd rather be in jail than eight hours in the car with him.

A man who walked off the boardwalk and across the outflow stream of Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park received a sentence Tuesday designed to send a message to others thinking about defying federal regulations.

Jason Nguyen, 28, of the San Francisco Bay Area was sentenced to four days in jail, fined $1,040, and received a year of probation and a one-year ban from Yellowstone after the federal judge tossed out a previous plea agreement, according to MTN News.

Nguyen, attending federal court in Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone by telephone, pleaded for no jail time, but Judge Mark Carman did not relent. The original agreement Nguyen reached with a U.S. attorney was to pay a $1,540 fine.

Teen Allegedly Stabs Older Brother: 'I'd Rather Be in Jail Than 8 Hours in the Car With Him'

Teen Allegedly Stabs Older Brother: 'I'd Rather Be in Jail Than 8 Hours in the Car With Him' The teen was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. A 13-year-old Tennessee boy who allegedly stabbed his older brother said he doesn't regret doing so, according to authorities. Deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office were called to a Florida road on Saturday where they found a 15-year-old bleeding from multiple stab wounds in a car. His brother, 13, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to the sheriff's office.

On May 30, Amy Wagler videotaped Nguyen completing his illegal actions, took a photo of the car he drove away in and reported to the authorities what she overheard him say to his friend.

"He asked his friend if he got the shot, which was premeditated since his friend had to drop him off at the boardwalk, and the friend said yes," Wagler wrote in her video description on YouTube.

But in court, Nguyen told the judge a different version. He said he saw the warning signs about staying on the boardwalks but was in a hurry to pick up a friend at the airport so he decided to take a shortcut.

Cuyahoga County Jail guard attacked inmate, later threatened to hang him for ‘snitching’ to U.S. Marshals, unrelated lawsuit says

Cuyahoga County Jail guard attacked inmate, later threatened to hang him for ‘snitching’ to U.S. Marshals, unrelated lawsuit says CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A Cuyahoga County Jail guard attacked an inmate, called him a racial slur and later threatened to hang him for “snitching” to U.S. Marshals investigating conditions at the jail, according to an unrelated lawsuit filed Wednesday. The details included in the suit offer the first account of the incident involving Cpl. Christopher Little and inmate Corrione Lawrence, which is being investigated by the FBI. The details are included in a lawsuit that civil rights attorney Subodh Chandra filed Wednesday on behalf of Chantelle Glass, who Cuyahoga County Jail officers punched and pepper-sprayed after strapping her to a restraint chair.

Later, however, Nguyen admitted he was picked up by wardens at Old Faithful after visiting Grand Prismatic Spring. The judge noted he must not have been in that big a hurry to pick up a friend at the airport if he went to Old Faithful next.

"We will not tolerate people who damage resources," Judge Carmen said in court, according to MTN News.

"I think you're a good guy who made a serious mistake."

The U.S. attorney said video of Nguyen walking across the algal mats went viral so it's important to send a strong message to people who see it and the judge agreed.

Nguyen, who said he feels bad about damage he caused and was sorry, has 14 days to appeal his sentence and until June 1, 2020 to pay his fine, MTN News reported.
