This INSANE footage just surfaced as part of an ongoing lawsuit that a man named Anthony Ramos filed against the fast food chain, due to a 2021 incident that Ramos says was caught on video showing a JITB worker firing bullets after she and Ramos got into it over curly fries.
Essentially, Ramos says he and his family — including his pregnant wife and young daughter — swung by a Houston-area Jack-in-the-Box in March ’21 and ordered a combo meal to go, but when he told the employees he was missing items, things escalated.
The back-and-forth arguing got so intense that Ramos apparently started to chuck some of the food back at the JITB drive-thru crew — which spurred employee Alonniea Fantasia Ford to head back into the recesses of the restaurant, only to return with a pistol in hand.
The surveillance footage Ramos and his legal team obtained in discovery seems to show Ford shooting at least a couple times at Ramos/his car, which speeds away.
Luckily, it doesn’t sound like anyone was hurt, but Ramos is now going after the Jack-in-the-Box, alleging they were negligent in hiring Ford.
Ford’s also reportedly being sued and was reportedly arrested over this as well. Apparently she copped a plea to a deadly conduct charge and already served her sentence. Ramos is seeking at least $250k in damages.
Three men were found dead with gunshot and knife wounds and a fourth one with a large cut on his neck inside an apartment building, apparently under the influence of ‘magic mushrooms.’
Emergency services rushed to an apartment in Roseville, Minnesota, after reports of three people unresponsive and a man with a deep cut on his neck.
Police officers arrived to find three men deceased and a fourth man with a “deep laceration” to his neck, it was reported. Crews were dispatched at around 2:30 a.m. (local time) today.
The three dead bodies had knife and gunshot wounds, police said. Further information on the circumstances under which the people were found unresponsive and how the injury of the man occurred is not yet available. The fourth man found with the cut to his throat was provided aid by police officers before being rushed to a hospital where he remains in critical condition.
Police said there was no threat to the public. Detectives remain on the scene to investigate the case alongside officers from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The people involved had reportedly taken ‘magic mushrooms’, although this has not been confirmed by police.
The Roseville Police Department said in a statement: “On September 23, 2023, at 2:24 AM, Roseville Officers were dispatched to the 1600 block of Eldridge Avenue on a welfare check. Upon arrival, officers located one adult male with a laceration to his throat. While providing aid, officers located three additional adult males, all of whom were deceased from apparent knife and gunshot wounds.
“The initial male located by police was transported to the hospital where he remains in critical condition. At this time, there is no reason to believe there is an ongoing safety risk to the public. The Roseville Police Department is partnering with the Minnesota Bureau of Apprehension and will release additional details as they become available.
In a Saturday morning post on Twitter, MNCrime wrote: “ROSEVILLE: A Minnesota BCA team is assisting officers at an apartment building near Eldridge Ave. & Fry St. after an incident that occurred before 2:30 a.m. Officers were dispatched for a male reportedly with a large cut on his neck and three people unresponsive, possibly under the influence of ‘mushrooms.’ Officers found ‘three bodies’ inside the apartment and a man with a deep laceration to his neck.

A 39-year-old employee at an auto parts dealer in Kansas City, Kansas, was arrested this week after being accused of killing a 23-year-old he believed was shoplifting from the business, strangling the man to death.
Carl R. Kemppainen was taken into custody on Thursday and charged with one count of second-degree murder — unintentional but reckless in the slaying of Diamond Steen, jail records reviewed by Law&Crime show.
“Make no mistake, it is law enforcement’s job to do the policing, no one else’s,” Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree said in a Thursday news conference announcing the charges against Kemppanian.
The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department, in a press release said the incident took place at about 6 p.m. on Tuesday at the O’Reilly Auto Parts store in the 4700 block of Parallel Parkway.
According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by Kansas City, Missouri, NBC affiliate KSHB-TV, first responders arrived just after 6 p.m. and immediately found Steen unresponsive. Emergency Medical Services personnel tried CPR but were unsuccessful and declared him dead there.
An autopsy found that Steen’s manner of death was a homicide and the cause was strangulation. The DA on Thursday disclosed few details about the alleged murder but did say that Steen’s “airway was completely stopped.”
Authorities reportedly said that the situation unfolded when Steen and another individual whose name has not been reported came into the store and were suspected of stealing multiple items, the Kansas City Star reported. Store employees reportedly confronted Steen and the other man, resulting in an argument that escalated and became violent.
A video of the incident reportedly went viral on Facebook and TikTok, showing store employees detaining the two men on the ground outside the store. One alleged shoplifter was on the sidewalk, and the other was in the parking lot, though it was not immediately clear which one was Steen.
Asked whether Steen’s alleged shoplifting would affect the charges brought against Kemppanian, Dupree indicated the possibility was not likely.
“The reasoning by which police were called out were brought to my attention. Part of that is still being investigated,” Dupree said during the news conference. “If there was a potential crime that was being alleged, we do know that in this country, you still have to go to the court, and someone’s life cannot be taken.”
The DA added that authorities are looking into possibly filing charges against three other individuals involved in the incident.
Kemppainen was booked into the Wyandotte County Detention Center and released after posting a bond of $125,000.
Cops in Orem, Utah arrested a journalist’s daughter on Tuesday night after she allegedly went nuclear on the city’s mayor for attacking her mom’s reporting.
Mayor David Young spent 20 minutes during a council meeting earlier that evening ranting about the Daily Herald, particularly its reporter Genelle Pugmire, who had written about a $1 million fraud lawsuit involving Young.
He accused Pugmire, without evidence, of being in “cahoots” with opposing attorneys, and of not reaching out to him for comment, despite also conceding that she had reached out for comment but he didn’t see it because he was out hiking.
In videos obtained by KSL.com, Pugmire’s 31-year-old daughter Linnea accosted Young after the meeting, repeatedly yelling “how dare you” before spitting on him and hitting both him and a woman next to him.
Young, in turn, called Linnea “disgusting” and said, “I’m sick of being pushed around by your mother.” Linnea Pugmire was booked into jail on suspicion of assault, disorderly conduct, propelling a bodily substance, and threatening elected officials.
A woman shot five people outside country singer Dierks Bentley’s crowded Denver bar Saturday after she was denied entry to the hotspot.
Denver police are searching for the suspect, who is still on the loose five days after the mass shooting outside Whiskey Row, located on a busy nightlife corridor in the city’s downtown.
The woman may have been aiming at the bar’s security personnel who had stopped her from entering the Market Street bar because they suspected she was using another person’s ID, investigators told KDVR.
She left the line of people waiting to get inside and then turned back, pulled out a gun and began spraying bullets toward the country music club around 11:15 p.m., Denver Public Safety told the local Fox affiliate station.
The shooter instead struck five bystanders who were outside the bar at the time and are not believed to have been the intended targets, police said. All five are expected to survive their injuries.
A man working security for a bar across the street told the local station that he heard six gunshots ring out. He rushed everyone on the sidewalk in front of his bar inside and locked the doors.
“I was standing right here and I heard six gunshots,” Andrew Reader told KDVR. “My initial reaction, my goal, was to get all these people to safety.”
He said staffers ushered patrons toward the back of the bar and had everyone exit out the back door once police deemed it safe.
A woman who was waiting in line to enter Whiskey Row behind the suspect told Denver7 that people began screaming and running when the gunfire broke out.
“It happened really fast,” Madison Sharnowski told the local ABC news affiliate station, adding that she at first froze when she heard seven or eight gunshots. “In that moment, it’s like flight or fight response.”
She said she was thankful that she and her friends were not wounded as a woman in front of her party and behind them were each shot.
“I’m extremely grateful to be here. And to be OK, and that all of my friends are also OK. But it’s a traumatic experience to go through, especially for the five victims that were hit,” she said.
Sharnowski said most of the victims appeared to have been shot in the legs.
She stayed with one of the victims, a young woman who was shot through her ankle, until an ambulance arrived, and helped her call her mother.
“You really don’t know how you’re gonna respond until it happens. And hopefully, it’s not something that you ever really have to respond to,” Sharnowski said.
A popular Turkish DJ was allegedly tortured to death in London by “sadistic thugs” who inflicted 94 injuries on him — including beating him with a bat and stabbing his feet — and locked his girlfriend in a bathroom for two days, disturbing court proceedings revealed Wednesday.
Mehmet Koray Alpergin, 43, and his girlfriend, Gozde Dalbudak, 34, were abducted by six men near Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as they returned home from an Italian restaurant in Mayfair on Oct. 13, 2022, according to the Telegraph.
The assailants had allegedly installed a tracking device on Alpergin’s car, the jury was told.
The couple were put into separate vehicles — Dalbudak at knifepoint — and taken to an empty wine bar on White Hart Lane, the outlet reported.
His naked body — which had been punched, kicked, hit with a bat, and scalded with boiling water while his feet were stabbed, according to prosecutors — was dumped in the woods near Essex on Oct. 15.
It was discovered hours later by a dog walker.
Dalbudak was locked in the bar restroom for two days, jurors were told.
Steffan Gordon, 34, of Northolt; Tejean Kennedy, 33, of Cricklewood Broadway; Samuel Owusu-Opoku, 35, of Wood Green; Junior Kettle, 32, of Archway; Ali Kavak, 26, from Tottenham; and Erdogan Ulcay, 56, from Camden, have been accused of murder, kidnapping, false imprisonment, and perverting justice, according to the Telegraph.
“The prosecution alleges that Koray Alpergin was kidnapped and tortured either so that he might be punished for something that he had done or else forced to give up something that he knew — perhaps the whereabouts of either drugs or money — and which his kidnappers also wanted to know,” lawyer Crispin Aylett said.
“It is obvious that before his death, Koray Alpergin had been stripped naked and horrifically tortured,” he continued.
“From the number and nature of the injuries sustained, the prosecution suggests that it is not hard to envisage a group of sadistic thugs taking it in turns to inflict injury, whether with punches and kicks, hitting him with a bat, scalding him with boiling water, stabbing his feet.”
He alleged the attack was connected to “organized crime” and “almost certainly drugs,” Aylett added.
Jurors were told Alpergin, who owned London-based Turkish-language radio station Bizim FM, was not his usual “happy-go-lucky” self prior to the deadly attack and that he seemed anxious.
The popular DJ was also allegedly in debt, including around $40,000 just for his car, the Telegraph reported.
Kennedy, Owusu-Opoku, Kettle and Kavak deny the murder charge and false imprisonment and kidnapping charges.
Gordon admitted to kidnapping but denied the murder and false imprisonment.
Ulcay and Kavak deny the perversion charges. Owusu-Opoku admitted to it, according to the Telegraph.
A Rwandan man has pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including the murder of 12 women and two men, in a high-profile case that shocked the country.
Denis Kazungu, 34, is alleged to have buried his victims in his kitchen.
Police discovered the crime earlier this month after he was evicted from his rented accommodation in Kicukiro, a suburb of the capital, Kigali.
In a packed courtroom, after hearing the guilty plea, a woman cried out for her child who she said was a victim.
This hearing was called to determine whether Kazungu should remain in detention. The judge will deliver a decision on September 26.
Kazungu, who did not have legal representation, looked calm and composed at the hearing and when asked to plea, said in a firm voice that he was “guilty”.
He tried to justify his crimes by alleging that his victims “deliberately infected him with Aids” but not offer any proof of this.
The state of Mr Kazungu’s mental health is unclear, but he appeared sound when he requested the court to put proceedings behind closed doors, a request that the court denied.
“I have done extreme crimes and do not want to be reported in the media,” he said.
Kazungu was arrested after his landlord had reported him to police for defaulting on rent payments for seven months.
A police official told Rwanda’s private newspaper The New Times that he put up a fight when they evicted him.
“He apologized and cried excessively, which raised our suspicions,” the official said.
“We detained him and I personally took him to the police. It is at the police station where he confessed to having killed some people, prompting Rib [Rwanda Investigation Bureau] to investigate his residence.”
An Rib spokesperson said he lured his victims, mostly sex workers, to his home and would then rob them. He then “strangled them to death and buried them in a hole dug in the kitchen of his rented house”.
Investigators are yet to reveal the names of all of Kazungu’s suspected victims.
A construction site at the home of the new Buffalo Bills stadium received an unexpected visitor on Sunday as the team took on the Las Vegas Raiders, authorities said.
Police were called to the area via Eric County Community College security as they handled the area outside the fencing.
As authorities approached, the Eric County Sheriff’s Office said a 29-year-old naked man who was covered in feces jumped into a pit at the construction site in Buffalo, New York.
Officials said the man was under the influence of a mixture of drugs including alcohol, LSD, cocaine, and marijuana, and needed to scale a 10-foot fence to get into the site.
Erie County Sheriff John Garcia explained the situation in a press conference Monday.
“When you’re taking LSD, cocaine, and marijuana, you’re going to not read the signs. You’re not going to read anything,” Garcia said, via WIVB-TV. “You wouldn’t be in a porta potty jumping inside it, covering yourself with human excrement, you wouldn’t be doing that. This is a very isolated issue.”
Authorities said the man was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
No one else was injured.
“We always try to stay four, five plays ahead because our job is to try to prevent incidents like that to occur but when someone takes LSD, cocaine, and marijuana and they’re drinking, from running into traffic to scaling a 10-foot fence, we can’t prevent everything,” Garcia added.
The sheriff said the people the man was with left him and entered Highmark Stadium for the game, according to the Buffalo News.
He said officials wanted to speak to anyone who was with him or interacted with him.
The new construction site is located across from Highmark Stadium.
The man was not identified.
He was charged with criminal trespass and released on an appearance ticket.
Two aspiring models based in Los Angeles were found dead inside their luxury apartments within the last week, prompting fears of a serial killer on the loose, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Police have yet to determine whether there is any link between the two deaths of Maleese Mooney on September 12 and Nichole “Nikki” Coats on September 10. Local influencers are now warning other models to be wary of meeting up with strangers or going to do photo shoots alone without notifying anybody of their whereabouts.
A flyer has been making the rounds that advises women to “stay safe” by sharing their location or contact information on the people they are going to meet up with. Women have also been advised not to give out their exact location when going on dates.
As we previously reported, Mooney’s case is being considered a murder while Coats’ is still considered a “suspicious” death pending a Los Angeles County Coroner’s report.
Coats told loved ones she was going out on a date on September 8 and was tragically never seen or heard from again. “This is senseless and I want some answers because my daughter is gone,” said her devastated mother, Sharon Coats, during a press conference. “It’s not fair. I want everybody to find out who did this to her.”
“I believe it was murder, I really do,” added Coats’ aunt May Stevens while an LAPD did not confirm circumstances surrounding her death. “One of her legs was up in the air in a kicking position. That’s not somebody who just laid in their bed and died.”
As for Mooney, LAPD Central Area uniformed patrol officers responded to a radio call for a Welfare Check at the 200 block of South Figueroa Street and found her deceased inside of her luxury apartment. An investigation conducted determined she was murdered.
Mooney’s exact cause of death is unknown, pending a post-mortem examination, which will be conducted by the same coroner’s office, a news release stated.
Family members related to Mooney said she had only moved into her new place a month ago and also worked as a real estate agent at Beverly Hills-based agency Nest Seekers, with a cousin telling KTLA, “When a week went by, we just knew something was off.”
“Her messages weren’t delivering and we knew something was up because we all have a special relationship with Maleesa.”
“Maleesa has always been someone who is a peacemaker in our family, someone that’s always been the backbone, and making sure everyone’s getting together, loving on each other,” her devastated sister Jourdin Pauline said. “This is a really big piece of us that’s gone now.”
