But Arteesha Holt wasn’t like most girls her age. A tomboy who liked playing football and basketball, relatives said she also had an explosive temper and was prone to uncontrollable outbursts.
Once, she slung an ashtray across her family’s home, tore pictures from the wall and kicked out a heating vent, all because her infant nephew stepped on a bowl of strawberries. The girl’s mother says she tried repeatedly to get her daughter help through the juvenile justice system, to no avail.
But the men enjoying the evening of Aug. 13 didn’t know all that. So they laughed. And, police say, the seventh-grader pulled the trigger, striking both in the head and killing Jose Rodolfo Gonzalez-Coreas, 43.
Holt was arrested late Tuesday and charged as an adult with first-degree murder. District Court Judge Theodore B. Oshrine ordered her held without bond, following prosecutors’ appeals that she is a “danger to the community.”
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi described the shooting as “heinous.”
“It speaks to the guns that are out there and the frustrations we in law enforcement have at trying to deal with all this,” he said.
Holt’s 18-year-old brother, Shawn Palmer, has been charged with being an accomplice to murder. Police say he helped Holt escape and took her silver .32-caliber revolver.
The girl’s mother, Raichelle Johnson, 39, said she was horrified by the allegations. She said she worried for her daughter and sought help but never anticipated “in a million years” the situation she faces now.
“I don’t condone my child taking a life — if she took this man’s life, then she needs to be prosecuted,” Johnson said.
Her mother said Holt’s rage often got bottled up, erupting with terrifying results.
“Arteesha is . . . ” Johnson paused, searching for the right words. “Unstable.”
The girl frequently expressed suicidal thoughts, she said, and over the past two years often hit the streets when she got frustrated, bouncing between relatives.
The shooting occurred in the 100 block of N. Linwood Avenue. Police said an officer was flagged down by Wilmer Bonilla, 26, whose head was grazed by a bullet. The officer found Gonzalez-Coreas lying on the steps of a rowhouse with a gunshot wound to the head.
Gonzalez-Coreas was rushed to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead Aug. 20.
Hollywood CA Aug 26 2010 Sylvester Stallone has a fan who wanted to meet him so badly that he snuck onto his Los Angeles property, but Stallone wasn’t even home at the time. Luckily, the fan did get to meet the ‘Expendables’ actor’s security team instead.
According to TMZ, a 22-year-old man was able to get past Stallone’s gates but was then apprehended by the security team who conducted a citizen’s arrest. While the fan claims he just wanted to meet the star, he was later arrested and booked for trespassing by the Los Angeles Police Department.
The man is still in custody at this time and being held on $2,500 bail. Next time, if he wants to take the risk, he should only try to meet a celebrity who is actually on their property.
Michael Frechette of Central Avenue is accused of swiping the credit cards from purses on May 31, June 12 and June 16.
Albany police say Frechette charged items on the cards.

Frechette was charged with grand larceny and identify theft and later arraigned in City Court. He is being held in the Albany County jail on $10,000 bail.
The officer had responded to a report that a woman had accidentally driven her car into the BP gas station’s convenience store at Northwest 199th Street and 37th Avenue.
“The girl had slammed her car into the window,” said Abubakar Pasha, 25, a clerk at the gas station. “The police officer parked his car in the back of the gas station, and I think he was doing paperwork in the car. I went back to work.”
Then, Pasha heard a loud noise and a man screaming for help. He stepped outside and saw the police officer had crashed into the pole, so he called 911.
As he approached the car, he saw a man punching the officer.
According to Miami Gardens police Capt. Ralph Suarez, the altercation started after the officer questioned “a subject who appeared kind of strange.” The man, who had been walking by the station, attacked the officer. The car’s gear shift moved to “drive,” during the struggle and the car hit the pole.
“They were fighting. A guy wearing a black shirt had jumped into the police car through the window,” Pasha said.
One shot was fired during the struggle, Suarez said.
Pasha said he approached the crashed car and asked the officer whether he could help.
“Half of the man’s body was inside the car and half of his body was outside,” Pasha said. “[The man] was punching him and was trying to take away his gun, so he handed it to me.”
Pasha held on to the officer’s gun, and the officer subdued his attacker.
“He was fighting hard. I think I saved his life, but I don’t feel like a hero,” Pasha said.
Pasha said the officer suffered minor injuries. The attacker was taken to a hospital to be evaluatedfor injuries and was arrested.
Mounted patrol officers were out front. canine patrol were teaming around and about 60 other uniformed officers from assistant chiefs and commanders to patrol officers and traffic cops were inside.
It was the annual “Shop With a Cop” back-to-school event, with officers helping about 160 children pick out clothing and school supplies for the approaching school year.
But that didn’t stop two men from going aisle to aisle, picking out a few items of their own.
While officers were helping out the kids, store security alerted the police they had their eyes on two young men packing their own backpacks with merchandise.
“Two guys came in and were picking through goods, cutting tags off and loading up their backpacks with blenders, shoes, clothes and tools,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson, police spokesman.
A couple of Portland officers assisted security in making an arrest, as a clown making balloons continued to entertain the children gathered for the special shopping event.
The two young men stopped, Shane Alexander, 20, of Hillsboro, and Jason Vantress, 30, of Southeast Portland, were arrested and walked back to the store’s security office in handcuffs.
“Initially, they said they were freaked out by all the cops there,” Simpson said. “But then, they thought it would be a good time to steal, that police would be distracted.”
Now officers and store security are scratching their heads.
“Common sense didn’t play into their decision-making today,” Simpson said. “As is so often the occasion with crooks, they think they’re smarter than the average bear, and they’re not.”
Officers returned to assisting the children and helping them get ready for school. “We’re helping kids and arresting bad guys at the same time,” Simpson said.
