A man whose van struck and killed a 2-year-old boy on a Milwaukee street was shot to death after getting out to check on the child, police said. A 15-year-old boy who came from a nearby house was also fatally shot.

Archie Brown Jr., 41, died at the scene of Sunday evening’s accident near a park on Milwaukee’s near northwest side, police said. They identified the child as 2-year-old Damani Terry and the teen as Rasheed T. Chiles, who died at a hospital.

A police statement Monday said Brown was distraught about hitting the child and stopped right away, according to witnesses. The statement didn’t explain how and why Chiles was shot, but police said he and the 2-year-old were attending the same party at the house near the accident.

Brown’s father, Archie Brown Sr., said a neighbor riding with his son on a trip to Home Depot told him that Chiles had gone to the scene to try to help.

“He came over to assist Junior and while he was assisting him they were shot,” the elder Brown said. “It’s a tough situation.”

Police said they had no one in custody.

Orange and blue balloons were taped to the front window of the house on Monday, along with a crepe paper streamer that read “Happy Birthday.” A frosted cake was smashed on the front sidewalk and candy was strewn in the yard.

Barbara Sprewer, who lives next door, said she saw Damani looking around before crossing the street, apparently heading for some girls dancing in the nearby park. She saw the van approach, and estimated it was going 25 to 30 mph.

“Nobody was watching the baby,” she said.

After the child was hit, she saw the driver get out. She said she heard shots but didn’t see who shot him or Chiles.

“I feel helpless. I feel numb,” she said. “I saw them alive and I saw them deceased. I’ve been reliving this since I woke up.”

Bob May, 68, another next-door neighbor, said he heard five gunshots as he was washing dishes and thought at first it was firecrackers going off in the park. He said he looked out to see the van with its door open and people talking on phones. May said his neighbors had moved in about six months earlier and he didn’t know them.

Brown said his son was a great father to his four daughters, including a 6-month-old baby.

“He liked to laugh. He took good care of his children. He was an excellent father to his children,” Brown said.

The attack on Brown was similar to one on a motorist in Detroit in 2013. In that incident, 54-year-old Steve Utash was severely beaten after he stopped to help a 10-year-old boy he had hit with his pickup truck. Utash suffered severe head injuries and was hospitalized in a coma for days.

Man Steals Ambulance, Heads To Strip Club

Thursday, December 4th, 2014


Police in Pontiac say a 50-year-old man has been booked into the Oakland County Jail for stealing an ambulance and telling authorities he was headed to “see some pole dancing”.

Bryan Kryscio was arrested Sunday night around 11:00.

According to police in Pontiac, they were called to McLaren Oakland Hospital by a Star EMS employee who said they were returning a stretcher to the ambulance when they saw it driving down Perry Street. The employees said the ambulance was left unlocked and running when a man jumped inside.

One of the employees had left their cell phone in the emergency vehicle and police were able to trace it to 14 mile and Ryan in Sterling Heights. Police pulled it over and found Kryscio behind the wheel.

He was arrested and during the drive to jail, he said he was on his way to the “Booby Trap”, a topless bar in Detroit, so he could “see some pole dancing”. Police say Kryscio has a criminal history in Florida for robbery and in Michigan for breaking and entering, possession of marijuana, and trespassing.

He was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of unlawfully driving away of an automobile.

Neighbors Break into Detroit Woman’s Home, Eat All Her Food and Blame Her For Leaving

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014


This is not the kind of PR Detroit needs right now! Imagine if you left your home for a little while and came back to discover that some of her neighbors had been living in her house. They drank up all her liquor and ate all her food. But get this, the surrounding neighbors say it’s her fault for leaving!

430 Pound Woman Robs Bank Using Spaghetti Sauce

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014


One 430 pound Ophelia A. Neal recently spent her afternoon robbing a bank in Detroit. Her assault weapon? Two jars of spaghetti sauce. My first question was “What kind of self-respecting woman buys jarred sauce?” but then I was reminded that the suspect is 430 pounds and robs banks rather than dating rich men, so she’s probably not the type of gal I’d normally hang out with.

Neal reportedly threatened bank employees with a “bomb,” as she demanded cash. Fearing death and the wrath of a woman who is three times the size of an average woman and four times the size of an attractive one, the employees submitted to the thief. Imagine their humiliation when they realized she’d actually just thrown the food she happened to be carrying in her purse at them before waddling off to an escape car (breathing heavily with a ravine of sweat in her bosom, I presume). Her accomplice was said to be a man. If you’re single, let that sink in for a minute: a 430 pound woman convinced a guy to help her rob a bank and you can’t convince one to hang out with you before 2:00AM. Ain’t life grand?

Police are still in search of the woman who was already on parole for marijuana possession and fraud.

Two Black College Students Brawl With Cops After Being Profiled

Sunday, September 1st, 2013


Two brothers are charged with assaulting police officers, but they claim they are the real victims and have the proof: the entire incident was caught on tape.

20-year-old Tywonn Mitchell and Naybon Moore, 26, were driving to a Detroit restaurant back in May. They say that’s when the Detroit PD began profiling them, tailing their car. After arriving at the restaurant and going inside, the cops soon parked and also entered the establishment. They then demanded to see their IDs. That’s when all hell broke loose.


Woman Killed After Police Officer Gun Went Off When She Hugged Him

Monday, July 9th, 2012

A woman celebrating the weekend before her 25th birthday was fatally shot Sunday when she hugged an off-duty police officer while dancing at a party, causing the officer’s service weapon to fire, according to police and her mother.

Adaisha Miller would have turned 25 on Monday, according to her mother, Yolanda McNair.

The shooting happened at an outdoor social gathering about 12.30am, said police Sgt Eren Stephens. It happened on the city’s west side.

According to Stephens, the woman ’embraced the officer from behind, causing the holstered weapon to accidentally discharge.’

The bullet punctured Miller’s lung and hit her heart, and she died at a hospital.

Stephens said the Detroit officer will remain on administrative duties while authorities investigate the shooting and report their findings to the Wayne County prosecutor. The officer’s name was not released.

‘For this to happen to her, whether they want to call it freak accident or mistake in judgment, it should have never happened to my child, and there’s nothing I can do to get her back,’ Ms McNair told WDIV-TV.

Pregnant Woman Who Was Kidnapped, Set On Fire And Shot Gives Birth, Two Arrested

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Charges include assault with intent to commit murder. Both men could spend the rest of their lives in prison if convicted.

Investigators say the plan was hatched in March when Rogers learned Latonya Bowman was pregnant with his third child.

Police say it does not appear Rogers offered Mathis any money to commit the crime.

Mathis can be seen on security camera video at a Home Depot in Warren buying duct tape, a rope and gloves the night before the crime, according to police.

Police also say Rogers sent text messages to Bowman while the crime was taking place to try to establish an alibi.

The victim, who survived being kidnapped, set on fire and shot, gave birth to a baby boy Tuesday morning. She was due in three weeks but had an emergency c-section.

Warren Police say the 22-year-old victim was attacked Saturday morning.

The victim told police she and her ex-boyfriend had just returned from a drive-in movie in Dearborn when she dropped him off at a home on Sherman Street in Warren. Rogers lives there with his mother, current girlfriend and Mathis.

Bowman says she and Rogers pulled into the garage and then got out of the car. The garage door then suddenly closed.

“The next thing she knew she was grabbed by the throat and a gun was put to her head,” said Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green. “She was ordered to the ground.”

Green says duct tape was placed on her mouth, eyes, and wrapped around her hands and feet.

The suspect then drove her around in her Saturn Vue for about ten minutes before stopping in an alley in Detroit. That was near I-94 and I-75.

Then the man said two things.

“He said ‘you know why this is happening’ and then he asked her about how far along she was,” says Commissioner Green.

The woman, who was nine months pregnant, says she felt liquid poured on her, then heard a match strike and then she was on fire.

“She was able to get out of the car and start rolling on the ground, trying to put the fire out,” Green says. “And when that happened, two shots were fired and she was struck once in the back.”

She played dead, and the man took off.

Feds: $450M in Medicare fraud

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

More than 100 people including doctors, nurses and other health care professionals have been charged in a series of Medicare fraud schemes that authorities say total more than $450 million. Attorney General Eric Holder and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the arrests at a news conference in Washington.

Raids have been going on this morning in seven cities (Miami, Tampa, Chicago, Baton Rouge, Detroit, Houston and Los Angeles). It is the largest one-day takedown yet in a three-year federal crackdown on Medicare and Medicaid Fraud, which is estimated to cost taxpayers between $80 billion and $160 billion a year.

While the arrests involve what a source calls “every kind of scheme you can think of,” the largest case — in Baton Rouge — involved alleged false billing for mental health services. In that case, seven defendants are accused of a five-year scheme to recruit beneficiaries at two clinics, then submit bills for treatment they never received. The alleged false billing in Baton Rouge alone totals more than $225 million.
