UPDATE: Capt. Kerry Carter of the Century Sheriff’s Station tweeted Sunday night that footage from the incident is being reviewed. “We are aware of the incident which occurred in front of a hospital which resulted in two arrests. There is footage of the incident and an active investigation is underway,” Carter tweeted without mentioning Huang by name. We are unable to comment further at this time.Original post follows:Los Angeles NPR station KPCC reporter Josie Huang was forced to the ground and arrested Saturday night while covering the ambush shooting of two Sheriff deputies.The incident occurred outside the St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, California, where two deputies had been transported for gunshot wounds to the head while sitting in their patrol car. The suspect is still at large.Huang had just covered a Sheriff’s Department press briefing when a small group of protesters gathered at the ambulance entrance of the hospital.Also Read: Trevor Noah Wants to Know Why Cops Shot Jacob Blake 7 Times but Peacefully Arrested Kyle Rittenhouse (Video)“To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling ‘We hope they die’ referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through,” LA Country Sheriffs tweeted.During the arrest of a male protester who “refused to comply & cooperate arrest…a struggle ensued at which time a female adult ran towards the deputies, ignored repeated commands to stay back as they struggled with the male and interfered with the arrest,” the Sheriff’s Department said.Video of the skirmish seen in the tweet below shows five deputies throwing Huang to the ground and handcuffing her as she repeatedly screamed “KPCC.” Her press credentials dangled from her neck as they moved her to the patrol car.Thank you https://t.co/5ajOiRV1m6 for what is the clearest footage of my arrest by @LASDHQ.It’s how I remember it — like being tossed around in the ocean and then slammed into rock pic.twitter.com/G3rfCR1NiI– Josie Huang (@josie_huang) September 14, 2020Huang’s cell phone was also recording at the time and confirms she verbally identified herself as a reporter from KPCC.Somehow I was able to start a new video right away. You see my phone clatter to the ground and I start shouting “I’m a reporter…I’m with KPCC.” I scream for help from the TV reporters I know are around the corner doing their 11 p.m. live hits pic.twitter.com/O9CZNuSrQI— Josie Huang (@josie_huang) September 13, 2020Also Read: Journalists Targeted at Protests by Police, Hit With Rubber Bullet and Tear GasDeputy Juanita Navarro of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau confirmed that Huang was taken into custody on suspicion of obstruction of justice by “interfering with a lawful arrest.” Huang countered, saying she was just reporting on the arrest of a protester. Although Navarro said Huang didn’t have proper press credentials at the time of her arrest, they can clearly be seen hanging from her neck in the video.“These are challenging and stressful times for everyone, but Josie Huang was arrested while doing her job. The charges should be dropped,” KPCC said in a statement. “Her arrest is the latest in a series of troubling interactions between our reporters and some local law enforcement officers. Journalists provide an essential service, providing fair, accurate and timely journalism and without them, our democracy is at risk.”Huang — who sustained scrapes, bruises and a blackened eye during the scuffle — was released without bail from the women’s jail at the Century Regional Detention Center at about 4 a.m.Los Angeles Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas has since asked the Inspector General to investigate the Sheriff’s arrest of Huang.Also Read: Latino LA Times Journalists Tell Leadership the Paper 'Continues to Fail' Its Latino Audience“We must continue [to] pray for the two ambushed sheriff deputies and their families. We must also require that the Inspector General launch an immediate investigation into the arrest of @josie_huang. The Citizens Oversight Commission must convene a special meeting on this matter,” Ridley-Thomas said in a Sunday tweet.“While specific details remain under investigation, the Sheriff’s arrest of a journalist as she was attempting to do her job merits the attention of the entire Los Angeles journalism community,” the Society of Professional Journalists/Los Angeles said in a statement. “SPJ/LA takes special note that this is at least the second time that a journalist of color from this news organization was mistreated and injured while reporting on civil protests.“This action by the Sheriff’s Department demands attention both for what appears to be an excessive use of force, and as a serious threat to the First Amendment, which protects the press, free speech, and the right to protest.”In a joint statement, the Asian American Journalists Association Los Angeles chapter and board of directors wrote: “We stand in support of our fellow Asian American journalist. Video taken at the scene shows that Huang was forcefully detained by at least five officers. Her arrest serves as a reminder of the risks that journalists face every day while reporting on the front lines during these uncertain times. We hold the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department accountable to provide answers for the excessive use of force in the detainment of our colleague. The Los Angeles chapter of AAJA demands an investigation and apology for her arrest. We will not idly stand by as the mistreatment of journalists, especially journalists of color, continues by law enforcement.”SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said, “These unconstitutional attacks on the rights of a free press are appalling and must stop now. SAG-AFTRA champions the U. S. Constitution and the work of our journalist members, whose primary role is to provide citizens with the information they need to effectively govern a democracy.”“The people’s right to a free press is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution, which establishes that the press shall be free from government interference in the dissemination of information, ideas and opinions,” Carteris added.Lawrence Yee contributed to this report.Read original story LA County Sheriffs Launch Investigation into KPCC Reporter Josie Huang’s Arrest, Footage Under Review (Video) At TheWrap

A woman has come forward claiming her husband confessed involvement in the 1997 disappearance of Don Lewis, one of the individuals featured in Netflix’s hit docuseries “Tiger King,” according to a report from CBS News’ “48 Hours Suspicion.”Trish Farr-Payne, whose ex-husband Kenny Farr used to work for “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin and her second husband Don Lewis, says her husband once threatened to put her “in the grinder, like I did Don” shortly after Lewis’ disappearance.“I thought he was tellin’ the truth,” Farr-Payne said. “At that time. I thought, you know, at least that is probably the turnin’ point where I knew–I knew deep down that Kenny has some part in Don’s not ever coming back. I knew then for sure.”Also Read: Family of Carole Baskin's Late Husband Offers $100,000 Reward for Info on DisappearanceFarr-Payne also said that one night after Lewis went missing, Farr returned home in Lewis’ van with Lewis’ collection of firearms saying “Don’s gone” and Farr-Payne shouldn’t mention his name anymore, especially on the telephone.She also recalled a large padlocked freezer appearing on her porch around the same time.The mysterious disappearance of Don Lewis has been the subject of much speculation since the release of “Tiger King” earlier this year. In the wake of the series’ immediately popularity, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office put out a call for new tips surrounding the case back in March.Farr-Payne told “48 Hours” that she shared her story with authorities in 2000 after a domestic violence incident which led to Farr’s arrest and conviction. She also told the Tampa Bay Times back in June that she sat down for an hour-long, video-recorded interview earlier this year.Baskin, for her part, says she does not believe Farr was involved in Lewis’ disappearance.“I love Kenny Farr like a son,” Baskin wrote in a May blog post refuting “Tiger King.” “He was someone I could trust to keep Don from getting lost or going into cages with cats who could kill him, while I worked.”Also Read: 'Tiger King' Zoo Closed 'Effectively Immediately'; Jeff Lowe Says He Is 'Forfeiting' Exhibitor's LicenseIn a statement released Tuesday, Baskin went further, saying Farr-Payne’s story “can’t pass the sniff test.” Read the full statement below.I’ve caught Trish Farr-Payne in enough lies about her ever visiting Big Cat Rescue and her description of the meat grinder to cause me to believe she’s just seeking attention post Tiger King and is using her 15 minutes to bash her ex. I don’t ever recall her visiting the grounds and her description of the meat grinder was ludicrous and clearly fabricated. Anyone can watch our hundreds of videos and describe our grounds whether they have been there or not.If she really feared for her life, and that of her children, wouldn’t she have called the police if she thought her husband had Don Lewis’s body locked in a freezer on her porch? That’s a much clearer path to safety than hiding what she claims she believed while continuing to live with Kenneth Farr for the next 3 years or more. The fact that the press keeps reposting lies like hers, and that of others who lied in Tiger King, without doing any research of the public record, really is dismaying.I’ve addressed most of the inaccuracies at BigCatRescue.org/netflix with copies of the documents and case file numbers to pull so you can see for yourself, and yet hardly anyone seems to care. It appears to be more about selling ad space than reporting truth. My challenge to you is to seek out and tell the truth and see if being different from the lemmings doesn’t prove better for you and your company in the long run. People want to be able to believe in reporters again.Read original story ‘Tiger King': Woman Says Ex-Husband Told Her He Put Don Lewis ‘In the Grinder’ At TheWrap

Lea Thompson agrees with Brad Garrett that Ellen DeGeneres is fostering a toxic work environment on the set of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”“Sorry but it comes from the top @TheEllenShow,” Garrett, who starred on “Everybody Loves Raymond,” tweeted Thursday, calling out the DeGeneres after several former employees came out to describe mistreatment behind-the-scenes and DeGeneres offered an emotional apology. “Know more than one who were treated horribly by her. Common knowledge.”“True story. It is,” Thompson, whose credits include “Back to the Future” and “Some Kind of Wonderful,” responded Friday.Also Read: 3 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' Executive Producers Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Former EmployeesOn Friday, Scooter Braun, record executive and manager of clients like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, took to Instagram to defend DeGeneres, saying people “love to take shots.”“People love to take shots. They love to see people fall. How quickly so many forget. How easy it is to stay quiet when it doesn’t effect [sic] them,” Braun wrote in an Instagram post. “[DeGeneres] is a kind, thoughtful, courageous human being who stands for what is right and highlights on her show the best of us. She has helped change the views for equality all around the country and the world. She doesn’t do what is popular she does what is right.”He added, “Today I’m sending love out to her. I know first hand how much she helps others both when we are all watching and when we are not. @theellenshow thank you for all you do and keep your head held high.”According to BuzzFeed News in an article from July 17, 10 former employees and one current “Ellen” staffer — who all asked to remain anonymous — detailed instances of the negative culture at the show, including “microaggressions” toward an employee of color and occasions where individuals were fired for taking time off to attend funerals or due to medical problems.Also Read: Ellen DeGeneres Apologizes to Staff Over Workplace Culture, 'Staffing Changes' PromisedIn a letter to employees obtained by TheWrap, DeGeneres vowed to “correct the issues.”WarnerMedia also issued a statement on Thursday promising “several staffing changes, along with appropriate measures to address the issues that have been raised.” Reps for Warner Bros. declined to provide specific details on the nature and extent of the personnel changes.Earlier this week, executives from Telepictures, which produces the show, and distributor Warner Bros. TV announced that WarnerMedia’s employee relations group and a third-party firm would conduct the investigation into the accusations.Three executive producers at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” have since been accused of sexual misconduct by former employees in a story published by BuzzFeed News late Thursday.In the article, multiple individuals who previously worked on the daytime talk show — who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution — detailed incidents of harassment and sexual misconduct they say they experienced with head writer and executive producer Kevin Leman, executive producer Ed Glavin, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman.Representatives for DeGeneres and the show have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.Read original story Lea Thompson Backs Brad Garrett, Says ‘True Story’ That Ellen DeGeneres Has Treated Guests ‘Horribly’ At TheWrap
Former “America’s Got Talent” judge Sharon Osbourne said the first time she met Paul Telegdy, who has served as chairman of NBC Entertainment since 2018, she was immediately put off by his risqué behavior with his dinner date, which included putting his “tongue down her throat.”On Friday, the network announced that Teledgy was under investigation following accusations of racist, sexist and homophobic behavior. The announcement came as The Hollywood Reporter published a bombshell report published detailing accusations by Osbourne and dozens of current and former producers and network staffers.At the dinner, which was arranged for “AGT” team members, Obsourne told THR that Telegdy arrived about 40 minutes late “with this tittering girl at his side.”Also Read: NBC Entertainment Chief Paul Telegdy Under Investigation for Workplace Misconduct“She was on his knee the whole evening and he had his tongue down her throat and that was my introduction to Paul Telegdy,” Osbourne told the magazine. The star said she later told Meredith Ahr, Teledgy’s longtime deputy and now president of NBC’s Alternative and Reality Group, “If that had been a woman, she would have been let go the next day.”In addition, Osbourne said that she quit “AGT” in 2012 after Telegdy threatened to torpedo her career if she protested the network’s decision to drop her son Jack from the reality series “Stars Earn Stripes” — a decision that came shortly after his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis. “He said, ‘Go f— yourself,'” Osbourne told THR. “‘If you call the press you’ll never work in this town, you f—ing witch.'”A spokesperson for Telegdy denied Osbourne’s account of the dinner and the phone call.Telegdy has been accused of mocking gay executives to their faces, using homophobic and misogynistic slurs and making disparaging comments about others’ physical appearance. Telegdy and Ahr were both accused of creating a “terrible, even traumatizing experience” in the network’s reality division.Read original story Sharon Osbourne Says NBC Boss Brought a Date to Their First Meeting and ‘Had His Tongue Down Her Throat’ At TheWrap
