Correction officer charged with murder after allegedly firing more than a dozen rounds in road-rage incident

A Connecticut correction officer is facing murder charges after allegedly firing off more than a dozen rounds at a 49-year-old motorist after a heated road-rage dispute on a state highway.

William Lucky, 32, an officer at the New Haven Correctional Center, fired as many as 18 rounds at Scott Kracke — including several after the victim was already on the ground — during the deadly Jan. 14 encounter on I-691 in Meriden, the Hartford Courant said Wednesday.

Lucky’s 3-year-old son and the boy’s mother were inside his Honda Civic at the time of the killing — while Kracke’s fiance and friends looked on in horror as he was gunned down, the outlet reported.

Lucky fled after the shooting but surrendered to Connecticut State Police on Tuesday.

The incident played out shortly after 8 p.m. when the two men got into a road-rage feud and cut each other off while driving on the busy interstate highway.

The two pulled over near Exit 2A and exited their vehicles before launching into a shouting match. That’s when police said Lucky opened fire, hitting Kracke in the head and torso.

According to police, witnesses said Lucky stood over the victim after he fell backward onto the roadway and fired “several more rounds in rapid succession.”

“I didn’t want this,” Lucky allegedly told his child’s mother when he got back in the car and started crying. “What the [expletive] did I just do?”

The woman told cops “things just happened very fast,” and said she “blacked out” when the shots rang out while she was tending to her toddler.

The correction officer later told police he fled because his young son was in the car and “he was afraid the other party would come after him,” according to an affidavit reviewed by the Courant.

After the shooting, Kracke was rushed to Hartford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Lucky drove home to North Haven, where his son and the boy’s mom were picked up by family.

He was arraigned on the murder charge and is being held on $2.5 million bail, the outlet said.

Lucky has been placed on paid administrative leave at the New Haven jail, where he has worked as a guard since December 2018.

In a statement, AFSCME Local 1565, which represents 1,800 state correction employees, said the incident is tragic for everyone involved.

“At this time, we will allow the investigative process to take place,” Mike Vargo, president of Local 1565 of AFSCME, told WVIT-TV News.

Food bank receives ‘record’ expired 25-year-old jar of cheese sauce

Food bank volunteers were shocked to discover that a donated canned good item had expired years ago — 25 years ago, to be exact.

Volunteers at the Sunderland and County Durham Food Bank in Chester-le-Street, County Durham, England, recently received a glass can of Uncle Ben’s Gratin’s Dauphionise Cheese & Onion Sauce for Potatoes.

A worker was checking new donation items at the food bank when the individual noticed the label was faded and the contents looked “a little grey,” according to SWNS.

Upon looking further, the worker discovered the sauce had expired on June 9, 1998.

Sutherland and Country Durham Food Bank manager Jonathan Conlon told SWNS, the British news service, that it was the oldest item they had ever received.

“We sometimes get things that are a couple of years out of date, and occasionally at harvest festival time, for example, we get things that people have cleared out from the back of their cupboards,” he said.

Conlon said this cheese sauce can set a record for how far back the expiration date was on a donated item.

“It’s not that unusual to get the odd donation that is out of date, maybe a year or two — but this is the record,” he said.

Conlon joked that the 25-year-old can was even older than some of the food bank employees.

He also added that although the food bank isn’t sure of the canned item’s origin, it must have come from a personal donation.

“It couldn’t have come from donations at a supermarket because everything is in date,” he said.

As for whether or not the food bank will be opening the can or throwing it away, Conlon said the center is actually going to display it at their location.

The food bank posted an image of the can on social media to remind followers to check expiration dates before donating food.

Some foods that are known to be OK to consume after their best-by date include dry goods, spices, packaged snacks, condiments and hard cheeses.

Foods such as honey, vinegar and white rice never expire.

Fox News Digital reached out to the Sunderland and County Durham Food Bank for further comment.

Drunk, naked Florida woman wielding peeler knife barges into RaceTrac, threatens to kill staff: deputies

A Florida woman has found herself behind bars after she allegedly barged into a gas station while naked and drunk, threatening to kill staff members with a peeler/corer knife.

Celia Barrett, 35, was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault, disorderly intoxication, criminal mischief, exposure of sexual organs and trespassing after the incident that unfolded at the RaceTrac at 2551 54th Ave. in St. Petersburg, according to an arrest affidavit from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

Barrett, who was previously trespassed from this gas station back in November, returned on Sunday evening after taking six shots of liquor, she told police. Barrett, who was naked at the time of this incident, walked in waving a “sharp-edged peeler-corer” and threatening staff with it, police said.

She did not request money from the cashier, but was heard complaining about being previously trespassed, the affidavit said. She allegedly began to bang the peeler/corer on the counter as she yelled obscenities at the cashier. The general manager came over, and she allegedly threatened him with the peeler/corer, too.

She continued to wave the peeler/corer in the air, acting as if she was going to stab the general manager, according to the affidavit. She also said she was “going to kill him,” the affidavit said, but lowered the weapon and walked away.

Barrett continued to “cause a disturbance” by allegedly knocking down a display of about 50 Red Bull drinks and destroying a carton of cigarettes.

Deputies responded and as she was being taken into custody, Barrett allegedly began to inappropriately touch herself inside the gas station.

Barrett remains in custody in Pinellas County.

Florida man hands deputy driver’s license with meth on it during traffic stop: Sheriff Grady Judd

A Polk County deputy got more than he bargained for during a recent traffic stop.

According to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, a deputy pulled over Robert Brush because he was driving with an obstructed license tag.

“Well, that’s no big deal unless, of course, you’ve got meth in your car, meth in your waistband, and, oh, by the way, when the nice deputy stops to ask for your driver’s license and stops to tell you that you’ve got an obstructed tag, and you hand him you driver’s license and there’s methamphetamine on the edges of your driver’s license that you hand the deputy,” stated Sheriff Judd. “You can’t make this stuff up.”

The sheriff says Brush is no stranger to law enforcement. He’s been locked up in the Polk County Jail dozens of times and has been to state prison once, according to Judd.

“After all, when you advertise that you’ve got a bad license on your car, and then you got meth on your driver’s license, you’re just asking for trouble,” Sheriff Judd stated. “If you’re talking about a crazy criminal, here he is, and he’s locked up in jail.”

DPD: Suspect allegedly bit off, spit out officer’s finger during arrest

The Denver Police Department said a suspect allegedly bit the top of an officer’s finger off during an arrest Saturday.

According to police, the situation started as a possible domestic violence call. Police responded to an alley behind a restaurant on University Boulevard just after 1 p.m.

A witness said the suspect, identified as Tyron Brooks, 48, was in the street yelling about someone pushing his friend down, according to the arrest affidavit. The witness described him as out of control.

When officers arrived, they saw a man standing over a woman sitting on the ground. According to the affidavit, she appeared to be terrified.

The arrest affidavit said the man was standing with one foot in front of the other and was moving his hands as though he was ready to fight, all while yelling erratically.

Officers asked to speak with Brooks, but he refused to separate from the woman. Then, officers tried to talk with the woman, but Brooks allegedly blocked her from standing up and told them she couldn’t speak with them.

Brooks turned toward the woman and put his face near hers, yelling at her again, according to the affidavit. He then allegedly pulled back his arms in a full wingspan and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to speak to officers.

At that point, officers were worried for the woman’s safety and grabbed Brooks’ arms to prevent him from striking, according to the affidavit.

Police said he tried to stop officers from gaining control by grabbing a fence. When officers pulled his hands off the fence, Brooks allegedly pulled his hands toward his waistband.

Officers thought he might be reaching for a weapon, according to the affidavit, so they took him down to the ground on his stomach. He allegedly kept reaching for his waistband while officers tried to gain control and give verbal commands.

Suddenly, Brooks turned over onto his back, and an officer’s hand ended up near Brooks’ collarbone.

That’s when, according to the affidavit, Brooks turned his head toward the officer’s hand, opened his mouth and bit through the officer’s left ring finger.

The bite completely severed the tip of the officer’s finger between the last knuckle and the nail. Brooks turned his head and spat the tip of the finger out, according to the affidavit.

Other responding officers rolled Brooks back over to his stomach and were able to place him in handcuffs. He was booked into jail on an investigative hold for second-degree assault on a peace officer.

Road rage confrontations are not ideal situations to get into, but it takes two to tango. Outside of a collision, it’s best to simply let the other driver act out, while taking necessary precautions. Me? I let them pass, and if they are still driving aggressively, slowing down unnecessarily or brake checking, I’ll back off, wait for a right turn, then signal my intent to get in the left lane to “pass” before making the sudden right.

Florida people are everywhere. But that state seems to attract the absolute best of the worst.

Spot on, Fm2176. Over the decades I have traveled by vehicle quite extensively thru-out the country and it does seem that Flu-ruh-duh does seem to have more than its fair share of idiots on the road. An average of 6-9 round trips a year from ’06 til March of ’18 and I certainly saw my fair share of them. Sometimes I’d back away, or get off the Big Road…other times I’d grab a lower gear, put my foot into the injectors, and let the super charger in my ION Red Line leave their asses in the rear. It really is a “methed up” place.

No matter where one finds themself these days, head on a swivel, hand on a CC, and maintain SA.

Teh Stoopid is not only strong but very wide spread.

Good to see Florida woman coming into her own. You’re come a long way baby! You may not get equal time as hard working Florida man but stay naked and high and you will stay in the news.

What a first date Florida woman would be. Acting all normal, give her a couple shots and there she is in all her angry glory.

Like that Bruce Willis Blind date movie? Hard to believe Bassinger is going to be 71 this year.

Mr Lucky’s luck has run out. His former charges will welcome him with open arms, then bend him over and have their way with him.

Ah, Floridians keeping the Florida Man/Woman meme alive. At this, I must postulate that there must be something in the water.

As for the Denver Cop getting his finger bit off by a rabid perp, it didn’t say he then punched the guy in the face. That is what I assume logically comes next after you’ve been bitten to get the guy to let go or as a reflex response to it. Ideally with brass knuckles.
