Ashwaubenon Public Safety officer charged with felonies after handcuffing wife during domestic dispute www.privateofficer.com
ASHWAUBENON WI March 29 2012 — An Ashwaubenon Public Safety officer faces a felony charge after his wife reported he handcuffed her last year during a dispute over a missing wallet.
Charles Ronald Hart Aschenauer, 16, of Paw Paw Road in Gulf, was arrested Wednesday by a school resource officer at Chatham Central High School.
Investigators said they looked at surveillance video after a teacher became nauseous and Aschenauer was seen putting something in a drink before the teacher drank it.
Aschenauer was charged with felonious distribution of certain prohibited foods. He was released on bond Wednesday.
Officials said the teacher will be okay.
Aschenauer is due in court April 25.
Police say both women pulled knives.
The grocery guard suffered two minor stab wounds and was treated in hospital.
Patrolling officers arrested the two suspects in the area a short time later.
According to police, former Sgt. John Jackson, 40, and his 13-year-old daughter, Alexis, both of the 5900 block of Summers Lane in Falls Church, were found dead at 1:15 a.m. in a vehicle parked in the driveway of a home in the 3800 block of Forest Grove Drive.
“Police responded to a report of a shooting and discovered the two bodies inside an SUV,” said police spokeswoman Tawny Wright. Police said the Annandale home was the residence of family members related to Jackson, but did not elaborate.
“The SUV was towed to our crime scene lab,” Wright said.
Police said they believe the shootings occurred sometime between midnight and 1 a.m.
“We are currently classifying this case as a homicide-suicide,” Wright said.
Officer Shelley Broderick said that Jackson resigned from the Fairfax County Police Department in June 2010 after serving 16 years, but did not give a reason for his resignation. ”That would be a personnel issue and not something we would release,” she said.
SILVER SPRING, Md.March 29 2012 - A manager at the Transportation Security Administration has lost his job after being arrested on prostitution-related charges.
According to court documents, the agency had received a complaint of “very similar” activities back in 2009.
Bryant Jermaine Livingston, 39, was arrested while on the job as a supervisor of TSA agents at Dulles International Airport. The Manassas, Virginia resident, said by phone he is innocent of the charges, but declined to discuss the details of the case.
According to charging documents, on February 15th, Livingston used cash to rent a room at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Georgia Ave. in Silver Spring, Md.
The hotel manager recognized Livingston as a previous customer who, on earlier occasions had “groups of males and females frequently entering and exiting Livingston’s room,” according to a court document.
Similar activity was happening on February 15, so the manager called Montgomery County Police to report likely prostitution. Responding officers offered to accompany the manager as she went to evict the people from the room.
At the doorway, Livingston denied prostitution was occurring, and invited the manager and police into the room. Responding officers say they saw, “11 people inside the room [including] three naked females and four males attempting to get dressed.
Multiple people were laying on the two beds and other people were sitting in chairs and standing in the room.” In a hallway interview, Bryant Livingston told the police officers he “runs the airport security at Dulles,” according to the charging document.
A spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration confirmed that Livingston had worked for the agency since Oct. 29, 2002, but he is now “no longer employed by TSA.”
In a subsequent interview, one of the men in the room told Montgomery County police that, “he paid Livingston $100 to enter the hotel room to engage in sexual activities.” Charging documents also say a TSA investigator told police that, “in 2009, a very similar complaint concerning Livingston was on record. The complaint alleged that Livingston was operating a prostitution ring and charging individuals $25. for sexual acts.”
The TSA spokesman had no immediate explanation as to what, if anything, the agency did about the earlier complaint. Bryant Livingston is facing five prostitution-related charges. His attorney, Jason Cleckner, declined to comment on the case.
Livingston has been released on his own recognizance, and faces trial on May 8th. In Maryland, a person convicted of prostitution can face up to a year in jail. TSA Statement: “TSA cooperated fully with law enforcement during their investigation into this matter.
The allegations against this individual are unacceptable and in no way reflect the integrity and professionalism of the more than 50,000 security officers who strive every day to ensure the security of the traveling public.”
Baton Rouge LA March 29 2012 – A Senate committee unanimously approved a bill Tuesday that would require training of bouncers and “security personnel” at bars and lounges. The Senate Judiciary B Committee sent to the Senate floor Senate Bill 234 by Sen. Gary Smith, D-Norco, that would require the bouncers to be trained under the state’s Responsible Vendor Program, which has been in place for more than a decade and requires the training of servers, bartenders and other bar personnel.
Smith said the bill applies to liquor outlets “where alcoholic beverages are the principal commodity sold for consumption on the premises.” Smith said he filed the bill after a handful of headline-grabbing cases in the New Orleans area in which security personnel at bars were involved in violent confrontations with customers.
The bill does not spell out how many hours the security workers have to take or what the subject matter of the courses would be.
Those decisions would be made by the commissioner of the Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control, but the course work must include “handling disruptive customers and customer altercations,” Smith said.
The bill defines security personnel as employees who “monitor the entrance and other areas of an establishment for the purposes of identifying underage and intoxicated persons, enforcing establishment rules and regulations” and providing overall security for the outlet and its customers.
“There is nothing in law to train security personnel” at bars now, Smith said. “We are seeing more and more of an increase in security personnel using excessive force” at lounges.
The bouncer or security personnel will not only have to take the regular server training course and be able to recognize when a patron is too drunk to be served, but will also be trained to handle tense situations.
“He will try to diplomatically remove someone,” said Chris Young, a lobbyist for alcoholic beverage outlets. He said the courses should include “how to prevent altercations instead of putting someone in a chokehold and dragging them out of the establishment.”
The cost of the training course cannot exceed $50, according to the bill.
The contract, which is retroactive to last August and expires this Sept. 30, specifies that sheriff’s resources will be utilized on an as-needed basis, with costs capped at $17,000.
According to sheriff’s documents, deputies from the Hemet and Lake Elsinore stations will be called upon for special enforcement actions, confiscating marijuana grows in the forests, handling road closures and other details during wildfires and coordinating security during events that attract large crowds, such as concerts and demonstrations.
Patrols will also be conducted in various forest locations “to make residents and visitors aware that law enforcement officers are in the vicinity,” according to the agreement, which is a continuation of previous agreements.
Under the terms, the sheriff’s department will bill the forest service for all expenses incurred.
About one-third of the San Bernardino National Forest, and an even smaller portion of the Cleveland National Forest, extend into Riverside County.
West of Murrieta is the Tenaja Campground, which is part of the Cleveland National Forest.
Officially known as Local 1303-453 of Council 4 AFSCME, AFL-CIO, the union is comprised of the four security guards stationed at the city’s two high schools, Jonathan Law High School and Joseph A. Foran High School.
The Board of Education Monday night formally approved the first-ever labor agreement for the new union, which organized some months ago.
The agreement spans three years and is retroactive to July 1, the start of the current fiscal year.
Prior to the contract, the guards were paid $16.12 to $17.69 per hour. This will increase by 2.15 percent for the current year, 2.85 percent for 2012-13 fiscal year, and 2.95 percent for 2013-14.
They’ll be paying an increasing share of their health insurance, however — 8 percent of their coverage now, 9 percent beginning in July and 10 percent in the third year of the contract, according to Chief Operations Officer James Richetelli Jr.
He said that the total increase in term of the contract’s cost to the city will amount to $34,231 over the life on the contract.
The guards work an eight-hour day. The pact was approved unanimously by the school board.
