DETROIT MI July 8 2012 (AP) — Michigan hopes to keep drunks off the road with the help from a special message in men’s bathrooms featuring an attention-getting woman’s voice.
Talking urinal-deodorizer cakes have been distributed to Michigan Licensed Beverage Association members in Wayne County, including Detroit, state officials announced. A recorded message will play reminding men who step up to the urinals to call a cab or a friend, if needed, to get home safely.
“Not only do we want to turn some heads and get people talking, we hope everyone takes the message to heart,” Michael L. Prince, director of the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning, said in a statement.
Bay, Ottawa and Delta counties also are getting them. The motion-activated messages are part of a statewide Fourth of July education and enforcement effort. The federally funded drunken driving crackdown runs through Sunday. It also includes stepped up patrols in 26 counties involving a number of agencies.
“At first it may be seen as humorous, but the seriousness of the message will stand out and encourage patrons to find a safe ride home,” said Michigan Licensed Beverage Association Executive Director Scott T. Ellis.
Talking urinal cakes have been used in other states for similar efforts.
FOLLY BEACH SC July 8 2012 — They pulled onto the beach in four tour buses with a deejay and a makeshift dance floor and left behind more than 100 bags of trash.
Had it not been for that crew of college-age revelers who packed the beach at East 10th Street, Folly Beach would have had a pretty quiet Fourth of July, by most accounts. Instead, 10 Folly officers and five Charleston County sheriff’s deputies descended upon what incident reports termed a “riot.”

Melee on Folly BeachThey hauled seven men to the Charleston County jail. Four officers and a deputy suffered injuries while scuffling with the partiers they arrested.
Public Safety Chief Dennis Brown called in an emergency response shortly after 2 p.m., requesting that all units head to the usually quiet surfing spot, according to a police report. The report said the crowd out there had turned violent toward officers who came to check out a complaint about rowdy beach-goers.
Brown sad Thursday that between 3,000 and 4,000 people had crammed into a 75-yard by 30-yard area. Officers don’t know what touched off the brawling, but Brown suggested that the combination of heat and excessive drinking likely triggered the melee.
He added that Folly Beach suffers from the limitations of fitting an estimated 60,000 people on busy beach days onto a strip of land only 6 miles long and a half-mile wide.
“It makes for a very large urban community,” he said. And that, in turn, makes for a lot of trash, which he called the greatest concern of the holiday.
“A lot of it made it into the ocean,” Brown said.
Reports detail young men throwing drinks, cans and cups at officers, grappling with them in the sand and chanting and fist-pumping to work their friends into a froth. Seven of those beach-goers left in handcuffs: Daniel Fernell, 25, of Johns Island; Michael Harvey, 19, of Murfreesboro, Tenn.; Alex Presby, 20, of Charlotte; James Restrepo, 22, of Greenville; Adam Shuster, 22, of Myrtle Beach; Daniel Werney, 23, of Charleston; and Stanley Randal Coleman, 23, of an unknown address.
Police arrested the men on various charges, including disorderly conduct, inciting a riot and violating city ordinances.
An officer wrote that he found Fernell waving his arms and yelling. Fernell didn’t listen when the officer told him to remain still, the report said, “creating alarm and panic amongst the public.”
One officer told Werney to stop, as Werney prepared to throw a drink at another officer, according to a report.
“When I turned to deal with another subject, Mr. Werney threw a beverage on me instead,” the officer wrote. Werney then attempted to flee and wrestled with the officer, the report said.
Police picked up both Harvey and Presby for chanting and pumping their fists, reports said. Shuster tripped an officer as the officer arrested his friend, according to an arrest report.
When the officer pushed him away, Shuster “became enraged and attempted to physically accost” the officer, the report said. Some of Shuster’s friends restrained him.
Another officer confiscated a glass liquor bottle from a woman on the beach and began pouring out the booze inside when Restrepo tried to snatch it, the officer wrote. Restrepo argued with the officer that the bottle belonged to him and fought the officer until a deputy threatened to use his Taser, the report said.
Authorities on Folly Beach responded to 123 calls total on the Wednesday holiday and said that, overall, incidents are down this year. City officials posted signs along Folly Road approaching the beach, warning visitors about rules and regulations on the island.
Officers also passed out trash bags to help reduce the cleanup. After the beach crowd left late Wednesday, city employees joined the mayor and other residents at the once-quiet surf spot on East 10th Street and picked up trash before the annual fireworks display.
MILAN, Tenn.July 8 2012 - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a Milan Police Officer earlier this week after an investigation involving sexual misconduct.
Milan Police Officer Adam Scott Martin, 39, was arrested on July 3 and charged with one count of Sexual Battery by an Authority Figure against a 19 year old female.
He was released from the Gibson County Jail the same date on $15,000.00 bond. His initial appearance date is July 10, 2012, in the General Sessions Court of Gibson County.
According to the warrant, Martin is accused of fondling a female relative on July 2.
An order of protection has also been filed preventing Martin from contact with the victim or family members.
Milan Police Chief Tim Wright declined comment on the case, but did say Martin had been suspended with pay.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began the looking into the case at the request of District Attorney General Garry Brown.
Baltimore MD July 8 2012 An airman with the Alaska Air National Guard fell to his death Thursday from a seventh-floor balcony at a Maryland hotel, according to the Guard.
Senior Airman Cameron Mixsooke, a 26-year-old Kenai resident and a specialist with air-handling systems, had served in Kuwait for six months and was headed home to Alaska, Guard spokesman Maj. Guy Hayes said in a written statement. Mixsooke was staying at a hotel in Baltimore, Md., where the fall occurred, Hayes said.
According to witnesses accounts referred to in Hayes’ statement, Mixsooke went onto the balcony of his seventh-floor hotel room and climbed over the railing. Mixsooke fell and was declared dead from his severe injuries at a Baltimore hospital.
“It is unclear at this time whether Mixsooke’s death was intentional,” Hayes’ statement says.
Mixsooke was a technician who worked on heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems for the Guard’s 176th Civil Engineer Squadron, the statement said. He joined the Guard in 2007 after prior military service with the Army.
Mixsooke leaves behind a wife, Samantha, and his parents, Reuben and Sharon Mixsooke of Unalakleet. Meantime, an investigation into the circumstances of Mixsooke’s death is ongoing, the Guard statement said.
NEWTON FALLS, Ohio July 8 2012- Police in Trumbull County said the man who shot and killed four others — including a teenager — Friday is dead after turning the gun on himself.
According to the Newton Falls Police Department, two adults and a juvenile were killed at 12:04 p.m. on Trumbull Court. A second child who was at the home was not injured. One of the victims called 911 before she died, police said.
Investigators released the names of the victims:
LIVED ON TRUMBULL COURT:
- Rikki Cogley, 42
- Cathy Cogley, 39
- 15-year-old (no name released yet)
Police said the suspect, 55-year-old Robert Brazzon who lived at the same house as Engler, took off in a white Dodge Stratus after the shootings and was located at about 4 p.m. in the Newton Falls Cemetery.
After a brief standoff with police, officers said Brazzon shot himself. He later died at the hospital.
A few minutes after the cemetery incident a 911 call alerted officers to the shooting death of 38-year-old Tracy Engler, who was found dead at the suspect’s home on Newton Drive, according to police.
Police are now questioning a second person of interest in the case, as officers learned that there were possibly two people in the suspect vehicle when it left the scene.
Newton Falls Police Chief John Kuivila told NewsChannel5′s Jenn Strathman that officers had trouble processing the first scene due to budget cuts. Meanwhile, the suspect was on the run for four hours.
Kuivila said an upcoming levy is on the ballot that would help with the manpower issue. He said the department currently has 28 full-time and part-time officers — and that number would be cut in half if the levy doesn’t pass.
The mayor said he thinks there’s enough manpower, but not enough vehicles for the officers to use.
Anyone with information about this case should contact the Newton Falls Police Department at 330-872-5757.
Coatesville PA July 8 2012 The internal investigation concluded that the Coatesville police officers accused in a sex scandal should be fired.
Instead, a lawsuit claims, the officers, all white, were promoted and went on to help foster a “hostile environment” for the handful of African Americans on the Chester County city’s police force.
One example of that environment, the suit alleges: a Confederate flag decal that a white sergeant has displayed on his auto license plate “with the knowledge of the police department.”
The claims are part of a civil rights suit filed June 26 in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia by Cpl. Larry Cooper, who identified himself as the highest-ranking black officer in Coatesville’s police department.
The suit also says the department practices “intentional discrimination” that includes “packing the officer ranks with white police officers.” Coatesville officials did not return calls Monday seeking comment on the suit.
Cooper, who said he had received numerous awards, alleged that he was repeatedly passed over for promotion while officers accused in the sex scandal – part of a self-described “Dirty Half-Dozen” – were elevated to leadership positions.
Minority officers are subjected to “ridiculing” and capricious standards, the suit says. It said that conversations among black officers are called “brothers’ conventions” and that blacks are not the only targets – in Internet postings, white officers have referred to Mexicans as “dirty” and “presumed to be illegal aliens who are only good for yard work,” the suit alleges.
Race relations in Coatesville, the site of a 1911 lynching of a black man accused of killing a white company’s police officer, have a troubled history.
Cooper’s is the second bias suit against the police department in the last year. In September, two African American and two Latino officers filed a discrimination complaint, which is pending, said their attorney, Gregg L. Zeff. The four remain on the force.
Coatesville’s population is 46 percent black; Cooper’s suit said only five of the city’s 32 police officers were black.
The four officers allegedly involved in the sex scandal who are still on the force now outrank him, Cooper said.
About five years ago, the Police Department investigated charges that a woman had “unwanted sexual contact” with two officers. Three officers allegedly had sex with her while on duty.
The suit said that the investigating officer recommended that all five be fired, but that Police Chief Julius M. Canale II, appointed in 2009, “overlooked the alleged misconduct.” The five, along with a relative of one of the accused officers, began calling themselves “the Dirty Half-Dozen,” Cooper claimed, “to brag about the severity of the issue and lack of punishment.”
In addition to seeking undetermined damages, the suit asks the court to appoint a “civil rights monitor” for the department and to bar “any acts of retaliation.”
SAN ANTONIO TX July 8 2012 – Theft charges are mounting against a local woman accused of attacking a mall cop while trying to steal underwear from a department store.
San Antonio police say 26-year old Vanessa Ojeda is one of the women seen in surveillance pictures attacking a Sears Loss Prevention Officer at Ingram Park Mall.
After a Crime Stoppers tip was called in, Ojeda was arrested at her home in May.
But authorities believe the panty caper wasn’t Ojeda’s first.
Investigators say that same tipster reported that Ojeda had also stolen several purses from North Star Mall. Police were already investigating that case which happened in April.
According to a SAPD arrest warrant, surveillance video shows Ojeda and a Hispanic male suspect, stealing six Burberry purses from Saks Fifth Avenue in North Star Mall.
The purses are estimated to be worth around $7,000.
Crime Stoppers is asking the public’s help in find the two female suspects involved in the attack on the security guard.
Investigators are also looking for the Hispanic male suspect seen with Ojeda at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Ojeda is currently being lodged in the Bexar County Jail. Her bond has been set at $50,000.
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. July 8 2012
A man was arrested after his girlfriend was found dead in a Federal Way home Friday evening, according to the Federal Way Police Department.
Police said around 11:15 p.m. a 29-year-old man entered his neighbor’s home and said that he stabbed and killed his girlfriend.
The neighbor called 911, saw a security car patrolling the area and flagged down the officer, according to police.
When officers were on their way, the security officer detained the man.
According to police, the security officer went into the man’s home and found a woman dead on the floor.
While officers arrived at the scene, they arrested the man for investigation of homicide.
Police said the woman was reportedly the man’s girlfriend and records show previous contacts with the man, but there were no reports of domestic violence between the two.
The identity of the woman is unknown at this time.
Detectives will continue to investigate this incident.
LOS ANGELES CA July 8 2012 (AP) — Anthony Wayne Smith spent seven years as a menacing defensive end for the Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders whose mission was to put quarterbacks on the turf.
Authorities believe that penchant for a game of violence turned into something more sinister shortlafter Smith departed professional football.
Already awaiting retrial for a murder four years ago, Smith was charged this week with three additional murders, including the slayings of two brothers who prosecutors said were kidnapped and robbed by men posing as police officers.
The most recent charges paint a portrait of a man who authorities say turned to brazen crime, but leaves the question of why he needed to after a somewhat successful career.
Smith, now 45, was drafted 11th overall by the Raiders in 1990 and amassed 57 1/2 sacks and 190 tackles while as a defensive end in the NFL. In 1993, Smith had 12 1/2 sacks, helping put the Raiders in the playoffs. The team lost in the AFC divisional round to Buffalo 29-23.
Smith retired in 1998 and according to authorities took part in the murders of Kevin and Ricky Nettles in November 1999.
The siblings were kidnapped from a car wash in Los Angeles by two men posing as police officers, and they were later found shot to death, said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. The victims’ bodies were dumped about eight miles apart from one another.
Smith also was charged in the June 2001 killing of Dennis Henderson, who, along with another man, was kidnapped in Los Angeles by several gunmen, Gibbons said. The victims were put in separate cars, and while the other man was let go, Henderson’s body was found in a rental car. Authorities said Henderson was beaten and stabbed to death.
Los Angeles police detectives began working on the trio of old murders in April 2011. Several search warrants were served and witnesses were interviewed, said police Cmdr. Andrew Smith. Investigators wouldn’t say if Smith knew the Nettles brothers but said the former NFL player lived next door to Henderson’s brother.
”We believe these were robberies, but we don’t know the motive behind them,” said Smith, who has no relation to the suspect.
Defense attorney Michael Evans declined comment about the new charges, saying he hasn’t seen the evidence against his client.
In a court filing, prosecutors said all three victims were tortured. Smith also faces three counts of kidnapping, and along with special circumstances, is eligible for the death penalty. Prosecutors will make a decision on whether to seek capital punishment at a later date.
Meanwhile, Smith is jailed awaiting retrial on a murder charge in the 2008 killing of Maurilio Ponce. A jury failed to reach a verdict in April, splitting 8-4 in favor of guilt.
Prosecutors contend Smith lured Ponce to an Antelope Valley desert highway where the mechanic was beaten, stomped and shot over a business deal gone wrong.
Evans argued at trial that there was no physical evidence linking his client to the crime and Smith had no reason to kill Ponce.
Smith will be retried with a co-defendant. A third man, Eric Honest, was convicted of second-degree murder in April and is awaiting sentencing.
Smith’s next court date is July 17.
Washington DC July 8 2012 Traveling this summer? Know where your mobile device is at all times, Credant Technology advises.
Travelers left their wireless devices behind at “alarming rates” across the seven airports included in a recent airport survey—Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Miami, Orlando, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Charlotte— according to the second annual report from Credant Technologies. Researchers found 8,016 total lost devices in major airports, and security checkpoints were the most common place to misplace mobile devices, according to the report. Restrooms was another common area.
Of the devices misplaced in the airport, 43 percent were laptops and 45 percent were smartphones and tablets, according to the report. The remaining 12 percent were USB drives. Just a little half, or 52 percent, of the devices are returned to their owners, Credant said. If they are not claimed, airports overwhelmingly donated them to charity or sold them at public auctions.
Of the seven airports surveyed, only one reported that they transfer the lost devices over to the authorities after 30 days, Credant found. “The moment you lose your mobile device, call the airport’s lost and found department,” said Darren Shimkus, senior vice president of marketing of Credant Technologies. “You may be pleasantly surprised that they have your device,” Shimkus added.
“These research findings are a wake-up call for CSOs and security managers across all enterprise organizations and SMBs,” said Bob Heard, founder and CEO of Credant Technologies.
Combining this report with the results of several other reports reveals a disturbing picture. Javelin Research found in February that 62 percent of smartphone users do not have a password on their device. A different Symantec report in March also found that people who found smartphones were likely to snoop through personal and business data.
Symantec researchers intentionally lost 50 smartphones in five different cities, and observed whether the finders attempted to access the data, and whether an attempt was made to return the devices. Around 89 percent of the finders viewed personal data and 83 percent tried to access business-related data stored on those devices.
If travelers misplace their devices while going through the airport, they are at risk for exposing sensitive personal and business data. Make the trip easier and less fraught with worry by keeping a tight grip on all devices while in the airport.
The Omaha police helicopter and rescue crews searched the lake area north of 120th Street and West Dodge Road for 45 minutes before calling off the effort early Saturday.
The handcuffed man was later found at a Menards store nearby.
The incident began when a private security guard tried to detain two young men at the lake. The two were part of a larger group that had been drinking and shooting off fireworks.
The guard handcuffed one man, and another man ran away, said Officer Michael Pecha, an Omaha police spokesman.
When the security guard decided to pursue the fleeing man, the handcuffed man also ran away.
Pecha said no tickets were issued.
Shepherdsville KY July 8 2012 Police have arrested the youth director of Trinity Life Center and charged him with multiple counts of sodomy and sexual abuse of a boy who attended the church.
Bryan J. Dockery, 26, was working as youth director for Trinity Life Center in Shepherdsville when police allege that he engaged in a 10-month sexual relationship with a juvenile church member.
Dockery was released from the Bullitt County Detention Center on Thursday after posting a $25,000 property bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for July 16.
Sgt. Mike O’Donnell, spokesman for Shepherdsville Police, said the crimes allegedly took place from August 2011 to June 2012 at the church, 964 Ky. 44 West, and at Dockery’s house off Cedar Grove Road.
A woman who answered the phone at the church Friday said its head pastor, the Rev. James McFadden, would “not be commenting on the situation.”
Police continue to investigate and detectives are trying to determine if there may be more victims.
Anyone with information concerning this or any other crime, is asked to contact the Shepherdsville Police Department at (502) 957-1001, (502) 921-1000, or its anonymous tip line at (502) 215-1588.
SCRANTON PA July 8 2012 – After what he called a “successful adventure in law enforcement,” Scranton Police Chief Dan Duffy confirmed Friday he’s leaving the squad room for the classroom.
Twenty-two months after being sworn into office as the city’s top cop, Duffy will become the director of the Lackawanna College Police Academy. His final day with the city is July 20, and his work with the college begins July 23.
Duffy, 37, worked during his time as chief to build a public-private partnership between the department and residents dubbed the “Be Part of the Solution” campaign.
The chief previously worked as a member of the college’s security staff and as an instructor at the academy. His brother-in-law, Scranton Detective James Pappas, once told him, “I think you found your second calling” in the classroom, Duffy recalled Friday.
It was Pappas who informed him of the recent departure of academy Director Will Oliphant.
“When this position opened – which was just last week – I looked at it as an opportunity,” Duffy said. “My goal is to make a significant impact on law enforcement.
“The future leaders in law enforcement will walk through those doors, and that’s a huge responsibility.”
It’s one that college officials feel he’s well-equipped to handle.
“Dan focused hard on leadership and that connection with the public … There’s no better place to begin fostering those ideas than in the police academy,” said Lackawanna College President Mark Volk.
“It’s not a loss for the city, it’s a gain. He’s got the chance to train the next generation of police officers and instill that same level of leadership and understanding of community commitment that he instilled in the police force here in Scranton.”
Duffy admitted that the timing of his departure is “unfortunate” as the city struggles to pay its bills.
“Absolutely not. I say it with all sincerity that this has nothing to do with the city’s financial struggle,” Duffy clarified when asked why he was leaving. “If I were to do that, that’s abandoning my post.”
Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty sent a letter to union members on June 27 stating that they would be paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour beginning July 6 in lieu of the city’s financial struggles.
Doherty called Duffy’s departure “bittersweet” but added that it was a “recognition of the type of people we have working in our administration.”
Police Capt. Carl Graziano will assume the role of chief for the foreseeable future.
“He’s outstanding, and he has the respect of all of the outside agencies,” the mayor said of the 20-year veteran. “Because of the financial conditions, it’s also an opportunity for us to do more with less.”
But Balestrieri, 29, of Brazil, forgot her backpack, mesmerized by other items in the women’s section of the store, according to a police report.
The bag held Balestrieri’s wallet, filled with credit cards and more than $400 in cash. After less than 10 minutes of shopping at the mall, in the 6000 block of Glades Road, she realized her bag was gone.
She couldn’t have guessed the cash would find its way into the pocket of Nafis Dewji, 20, an employee of Hollister — a store in the same mall, according to the police report.
Balestrieri looked through the Abercrombie & Fitch store but couldn’t find the backpack. So she approached Jennifer Persand, an Abercrombie cashier, and asked if anyone had turned it in. Persand walked to a back room of the store, a camera room where employees put lost and found items, and found it.
But when Balestrieri looked through the backpack, her cash was gone, the report states.
Questioned by police, Persand told detectives that Dewji, her boyfriend who works at Hollister, had visited the store to help her bag customer’s items.
Store surveillance footage shows that a woman found the bag and gave it to Dewji, who she thought worked at the store. The video then shows Dewji walking with the store’s manager to the camera room, where Dewji allegedly put the bag for safe keeping.
Two minutes later, Dewji walked back to the room, where he is alone for 36 seconds, footage shows.
Dewji denied stealing the cash, according to the report, but said he had been in the store to help his girlfriend because employees from Abercrombie and Hollister are often swapped to fulfill staffing needs.
He then confessed, the report states.
When he returned to the room, Dewji went through the purse because no one was there, he told police. He took $439 in cash and hid it under a cart in a back room at Hollister, according to the report.
Dewji, who is charged with grand theft, took the money because he had just got a traffic ticket and needed the money, he told police.
State College PA July 8 2012 — A Bellefonte man is once again charged with stripping naked, streaking and then fleeing from police.
State College police filed the latest round of charges Friday against Kelvin Flory, 50, after he was allegedly found running naked around 3:50 a.m. Thursday on East College Avenue.
Flory has previously been arrested 12 times on similar charges in Centre County, including once in May.
In the latest charges, police said they received a report of a suspicious man ducking in and out behind vehicles parked at Budget Truck Rental on East College Avenue.
When officers arrived, they found the naked man and immediately recognized him as Flory, according to a criminal complaint.
Flory ran from police, climbed a small hill and entered a trailer park, escaping from police, the court papers said. Court documents did not indicate whether Flory had been arrested Friday, and police did not provide an update.
Flory was charged with a misdemeanor count of open lewdness in a criminal complaint filed before District Judge Leslie Dutchcot.
He had been free on unsecured bail stemming from the May incident, according to court documents. Flory was charged with indecent exposure after he was found running naked between homes along South Atherton Street around 2:20 a.m.
Houston TX July 8 2012 More details are emerging on Vikings running back Adrian Peterson’s early-Saturday morning arrest. Kese Smith, the public information officer for the Houston Police Department, told TMZ that Peterson was arrested after he shoved an off-duty officer who was working as a security guard at a downtown Houston nightclub.
From the TMZ report:
Smith says the officer had to come back and tell Peterson a second time that he needed to leave and Peterson shot back, “Hey man, we heard you the first time!” and pushed the officer in the back of his shoulder, causing him to stumble.
Smith says the officer then told Peterson to turn around and put his arms behind his back because he was under arrest and Peterson began yelling at the officer. Smith says the officer repeated himself and that’s when Peterson turned around to face the officer and got in “an aggressive stance.”
Peterson then resisted, and it took three officers to finally detain and arrest him.
UPDATE (2:45 p.m. ET): Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio is reporting that the incident involved a dispute between Peterson and Houston police over leaving the club. The incident was caught on video by multiple cell phones. Here are some of the details of what happened:
At closing time, a group of police officers entered the club, and they began instructing the remaining patrons to leave.
Peterson wanted to get some water before he left, but an officer told Peterson that he needed to leave. Some words apparently were exchanged, but Peterson eventually walked to the exit with one of the club’s bouncers.
It’s believed that one of the officers then jumped on Peterson’s back from behind and tried to take him down. (Key word: “tried.”) Other officers then joined the fray and completed the arrest.
ORIGINAL POST: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was arrested early Saturday in Houston and charged with resisting arrest, according to the Houston Police Department’s official website. He is being held at the Houston Police Department Central Jail on a $1,000 bond.
The Houston Chronicle’s Jerome Solomon reported that Peterson was arrested at 2:30 a.m. at a downtown Houston nightclub in Bayou Place, located at 534 Texas Ave. No other details were immediately available. The listed offense on the HPD’s website is “resist arrest/search unclassified.”
“We are aware of the situation. We will withhold further comment until more information is known,” the Vikings said in a statement.
Peterson had surgery in late December to repair a torn ACL he suffered during the season.
On Saturday at 5:05 p.m., police arrested Monique L. Roderick, 23, and Jasmine Semper, 25, both of Brockton, after police said they stole more than 60 items from J.C. Penney.
Police then arrested Assel and Dana Tileukulova, both 23, on Sunday at 5:55 p.m. after they stole more than $1,300 worth of items from Macy’s, according to police reports filed yesterday in Framingham District Court.
On Saturday, police went to J.C. Penney for a report of two shoplifters, the report said.
Store security reported seeing Roderick and Semper filling reusable shopping bags with several items, police said.
One of the women went outside to get the car, while the other woman waited with the bags. When they were both outside, store security told them to come back inside, police said.
In all, police said they took 67 items, including 20 shirts valued at $280, 16 dresses valued at $347 and 15 shirts worth $274. The total value of the items stolen was $1,220, according to the police report.
At Macy’s on Sunday, police said Assel and Dana Tileukulova were seen grabbing large numbers of items from the racks, going into dressing rooms and coming out with nothing.

Evelyn Atwater remains in critical condition. She was shot in her apartment in the 1800 block of Campbelltown Road.
