Sheriff calls alleged Florida gunman a ‘coward,’ says cops wanted to shoot him

Published

on

Florida police ripped the gunman who surrendered after he allegedly slaughtered four strangers as a “coward,” saying they hoped he came outside with guns blazing — so they could have “shot him up a lot.”

Former U.S. Marine Bryan Riley, 33, was clad in camouflage and body armor and claimed he was high on meth when he allegedly went on the random killing spree in Lakeland early Sunday, claiming four lives, including a mother and her 3-month-old baby boy, authorities said. 

Responding deputies initially found Riley unarmed outside the home — but then he went back inside and “we heard another volley, and a woman scream, and a baby whimper,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

Riley got into a brief gunfight with a lieutenant from inside the home — and once the lieutenant retreated, fired at deputies outside, WLTX reported.

Then he came out unarmed and surrendered to police.

“It would have been nice if he would have come out with a gun,” Judd said. “We would have shot him up a lot. But he didn’t because he was a coward. When someone chooses to give up, we take them into custody peacefully.”

Riley later tried to grab one cop’s gun while being treated in the hospital for his own gunshot wound, before being subdued again, according to Judd. 

Justice Gleason, 40, was killed during Riley’s rampage, in addition to a 33-year-old woman and a 3-month-old baby who was found dead in her mother’s arms.

 An 11-year-old girl was also shot at least seven times and is miraculously expected to survive. She alerted deputies to the other victims.

In the home next door, Riley shot and killed the 62-year-old mother of the woman — as well as the family dog, Judd said.

“[Riley] said at one point to our detectives, ‘They begged for their lives and I killed them anyway’,” Judd said. 

Neighbors told him nobody by that name lived there. They told him to leave and reported his suspicious behavior to police.

By the time police arrived Saturday night, he had already fled.

His girlfriend told police he had begun acting erratically after working security last week at an Orlando church and declaring God was speaking to him.

The horrific violence came about nine hours after the suspect visited the same neighborhood and said: “God sent me here to speak with one of your daughters, Amber.”

Riley was a Marine for four years before being honorably discharged and spending three years in the Reserves, WLTX reported.

He completed tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to the report.

Riley’s girlfriend said he suffered from PTSD, but was never violent around her.

“He was a decorated military veteran,” Judd said. “And this morning, he’s a cold, calculated murderer.”

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
