The FBI has confirmed the arrest of a man on a Norwegian Cruise Line vessel who they say chased a woman throughout the ship before breaking her arm and jaw.
Jeff Smiley III was arrested on Nov. 6 after the Norwegian cruise vessel had reached the pier in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. He was charged with two counts of assault, including assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction, and assault resulting in a substantial bodily injury to a spouse or intimate partner.
An airline pilot who was arrested after being spotted naked in his hotel room overlooking Denver International Airport has been awarded a $300,000 wrongful arrest settlement from the Colorado city.
The man, United Airlines pilot Andrew Collins, was arrested in September 2018, after employees saw him apparently touching himself through the 10th floor window of his hotel room.
But Mr Collins’ attorney, Craig Silverman, apparently successfully argued that it is not against the law to be naked inside a Denver hotel room. A report from Fox31 Denver indicates that the pilot was also unaware that he could be seen from the outside.
The charges against Mr Collins were dismissed by a judge in March.
But the arrest, even though it was dismissed, had complicated Mr Collins’ routine. He had been suspended for six months from his job, but has now returned to the skies.
“I have to explain this situation every day without fail,” he told local media.
But, he sees his legal win as a positive: “That’s how we protect our rights — by holding people accountable.”
A female plane passenger took to Reddit this week to share a horrifying photo of a stranger performing a rude act during her flight.
The woman, who goes by WoodySoprano on the social media platform, posted an image of a traveler resting their bare feet on her headrest. Though the Reddit user’s face is cropped, her terrified eyes tell all.
“Going to be a long flight,” she captioned the photo.
The woman’s post immediately went viral, generating nearly a thousand comments by Tuesday afternoon. Some argued that the female passenger should have confronted the offender.
“I don’t get it at all. I would get up the moment I felt someone put their feet there and said something,” one person wrote. “You should never suffer in silence, never. Even as a passenger, if I had seen this, I would laugh and look at the person in the unfortunate seat and say ‘I’m glad the person behind me has manners and isn’t a complete idiot.’ because I do realize some people are afraid of confrontations.”
Others suggested that the woman should have alerted a crew member.
“Talk to a flight attendant,” one person posted. “If the plane is still at the gate then kick him/her off..disorderly conduct in a tube that is 30,000+ ft above ground is stupid… if it got worse.. the other passengers can tape him/her to the seat for the rest of the flight.”
“It’s going to be a dramatic change,” AccuWeather senior meteorologist Paul Walker told The Post Monday, adding that there will be a 20-degree drop in daytime highs throughout the week and “nighttime lows are going to be a lot colder.”
Walker noted, “Thursday night is when the real cold” is predicted to strike the northeast, as a high-pressure storm system moves in from western Canada.
Meteorologists predict a high of 54 degrees for Thursday and a low of 34 with a chance of snow by the nighttime.
“There is a possibility that we could see a rain mixed in with some snow Thursday night as the front comes through,” Walker said.

An intense hurricane is gaining strength over the Atlantic Ocean, but the storm is going largely unnoticed due to its remote location.
Hurricane Lorenzo, currently spinning over the central Atlantic, first became a hurricane on Wednesday, but by Thursday afternoon, it had rapidly intensified into a major Category 4 hurricane.
On Thursday evening, Lorenzo was packing maximum sustained winds of 145 mph, but AccuWeather Meteorologists believe that it could continue to strengthen and eventually become a Category 5 storm with winds exceeding 157 mph.
Although major hurricanes like Lorenzo are not rare in the Atlantic Basin, where it is located relative to its mighty force is very unusual.
Residents, rescue teams and aid workers across the storm-battered northern Bahamas could breathe a sigh of relief Sunday when Tropical Storm Humberto, expected to soon reach hurricane status, steered wide of the beleaguered island nation.
The National Hurricane Center said Humberto was located well north of Great Abaco Island and was moving toward the north-northwest at about 7 mph.
The Florida coast also won an apparent reprieve, with forecasters predicting Humberto will turn sharply to the northeast early this week and well off the U.S. coast. Still, swells generated by Humberto will affect the U.S. coast from central Florida to North Carolina during the next few day with “life-threatening surf and rip current conditions,” the Hurricane Center warned.
“Regardless of the exact track or development, Floridians along the East Coast should be prepared for heavy rain and potential flooding, have supplies ready and follow local media for updates,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said.
Humberto could threaten Bermuda on Wednesday or Thursday, AccuWeather said.
Those famous hinges of Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion, the ones that creak, are well-known to fans of the frightfully fun attraction.
And the “doorless chambers”?
Those spaces, too, are familiar to those who love the New Orleans Square destination.
It is a rare instance, however, when the physical parts of the structure are transformed into something tasty, a spicy-sweet treat, a house that is made of fantasy, dreams, and, most essentially, gingerbread.
But that’s exactly what has happened inside the planet’s most celebrated spook house, thanks to the brand-new gingerbread house sitting in the middle of the Haunted Mansion’s phantom-filled ballroom.
If you know your Halloween Time traditions at Disneyland, you know there is always a themed gingerbread creation in the ballroom, one that often has look that pays homage to “Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas.”
