first_imgThe 30-year-old opera singer who was arrested last Friday after crashing through U.S. Secret Service blockades around Mar-a-Lago had been given a written warning two days earlier for trespassing on another Palm Beach property.Hannah Roemhild, who is a Connecticut resident, was issued a warning by the Palm Beach Police Department on January 29 after a building worker called and asked officers to conduct a welfare check on an elderly woman who had a woman living with her, a police report states.The worker called police because no one in the building knew the woman named “Hannah,” who claimed to be the resident’s caretaker.The elderly woman’s family confirmed to authorities that they were not familiar with Roemhild and did not know why she was living in the apartment. The report does not indicate how long she had been staying there.When police questioned the suspect, she told them that she met the victim at church in Connecticut three years ago, and the woman allowed her to stay in the apartment “because they were friends.” However, she denied the worker’s claim that she said she was the woman’s caretaker.The victim told officers she did not remember Roemhild and had met her only two days earlier. The victim’s son then told Roemhild to gather her belongings and leave, which she did.Police searched Roemhild’s property to make sure she did not have any of the victim’s items, according to the police report.Meanwhile, she faces federal and state charges of assault on an officer and of deadly assault on law enforcement stemming from last week’s six-mile chase that began after she drove through two security checkpoints at President Trump’s Palm Beach mansion.Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office deputies opened fire, hitting the woman’s SUV numerous times. She was arrested later that day at a local motel, after picking up her mother from Palm Beach International Airport in the same vehicle involved in the chase and shooting.Roemhild’s attorney, David Roth, said at her first appearance in court that his client has a “well-documented history of mental illness.”She is scheduled to appear in mental health court at 9 a.m. on Friday.last_img read more

first_imgANAHEIM – Jaime Barria came to the ballpark Sunday hoping to prove he belongs in the Angels’ starting rotation. He left with a small piece of baseball history.Barria threw 21 pitches to the San Francisco Giants’ Brandon Belt in the first inning, the longest at-bat on record since pitch counts have been tracked. The at-bat lasted 12 minutes. It was prolonged by four throws over to first base and 16 foul balls – one of which started in fair territory before curling in front of the right-field foul pole.The duel finally ended with a pedestrian fly ball to right field, an easy catch for Kole Calhoun. Afterward, Barria received a loud ovation from the sold-out crowd at Angel Stadium and a welcome breather when Angels pitching coach Charles Nagy visited the mound.“The guy made pitches,” Angels catcher Martin Maldonado said of Barria, “and (Belt) kept fighting ‘em off.” “Some good pitches that he fouled off,” Maldonado said. “Some bad pitches he fouled off.”Barria, a 21-year-old right-hander making his second major league start, nearly didn’t make it out of the first inning. After Joe Panik’s leadoff single and Belt’s marathon at-bat, the Giants hit two singles to load the bases.Angels reliever Blake Parker was warming up by the time Pablo Sandoval popped out to Andrelton Simmons to end the inning. The Giants left the bases loaded and nobody scored. Barria needed 49 pitches to retire the side. According to Dan Hirsch of The Baseball Gauge, only two pitchers have ever thrown more pitches in a scoreless inning since 1988.“That was impressive, huh?” Simmons said. “I was very tired. Regardless of the result it was fun to watch. I don’t want to do it again.”Coincidentally, the Angels had seven pitchers in their bullpen Sunday for the first time this season. They had kept eight relievers in every game, before right-hander Eduardo Paredes was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake to make room for Barria.OHTANI MOVES UPShohei Ohtani hit fourth against the Giants, the highest he’s batted in a major league lineup. When he decided to give Albert Pujols a day off, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Ohtani made the most sense for the cleanup spot.“If Albert was in the lineup,” Scioscia said, “he (Ohtani) would not be hitting fourth.”Ohtani went 1 for 4 with a single and struck out twice against Giants starter Johnny Cueto. Scioscia said he wouldn’t hesitate to plug Ohtani into the fourth slot again “if the situation comes up, if that’s what it calls for.”Ohtani also threw a 37-pitch bullpen session in advance of his next start Tuesday in Houston. Charlie Morton (3-0, 0.72 earned-run average) will start that game for the Astros.Ohtani’s schedule Sunday was unlike that of any cleanup hitter since maybe Babe Ruth. Even Ruth did not claim pitcher as his primary position after the age of 23. For Ohtani, who turns 24 in July, it’s no different from what he was accustomed to in Japan.“Everything is basically the same,” he said through his interpreter. “Similar practice menu. Similar rhythms.”“We’re all going through this for the first time, Shohei included,” Scioscia said. “As we get some experience about what he needs and what’s going to make him the best player, the most productive player, obviously he’ll adjust from it. I think it’s a good starting point. We will certainly use all the information we gather from him playing and pitching and hitting and we can always make adjustments.“I would be surprised if there weren’t any adjustments. I think it’s a real good template that has a lot of historical data from what he did in Japan that’s applied to it. We’re going to adjust however we have to.”REMEMBERING MERCKERThe baseball community set its thoughts and prayers on Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar, who suffered a brain aneurysm during Friday’s game against the Houston Astros. Farquhar remained hospitalized Sunday in critical but stable condition, according to various reports.The incident evoked haunting memories of the Angels’ game against the Texas Rangers on May 11, 2001. On that day, Angels pitcher Kent Mercker had to leave in the second inning because of a brain hemorrhage. Scioscia remembered it well.“(Mercker) was pitching here on the mound, he came out,” Scioscia recalled. “He was kind of like out of sorts. He thought his ears were popping. You knew something was happening. He was having trouble focusing.”Mercker was examined by team physician Dr. Lewis Yocum and athletic trainer Ned Bergert, who sent the pitcher to a local hospital for further evaluation. Only then was the hemorrhage diagnosed. Mercker didn’t pitch for the Angels for three months and a day.UP NEXTAngels LHP Tyler Skaggs (2-1, 3.98 ERA) at Houston Astros RHP Gerrit Cole (2-0, 0.96 ERA), 5 p.m. Monday, Fox Sports WestStaff Writers Jeff Fletcher and Elliott Teaford contributed to this story. The previous record was set in June 1998, when Bartolo Colon struck out Ricky Gutierrez to end a 20-pitch at-bat.In an at-bat that long, Barria said through an interpreter, “I think the batter has a tougher time. I executed all my pitches.”Did he wonder when it would end?“Yes,” Barria said. “Every pitch I threw. Somehow he made contact.”Belt hit 11 foul balls with two strikes, three shy of Alex Cora’s all-time record set in 2004.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

first_imgDES MOINES — The 2019 Iowa legislature may be poised to increase the number working Iowans who can claim a tax credit for child care expenses.Parents with an annual income above $45,000 are no currently eligible. A bill that’s cleared a senate subcommittee would make Iowa parents who earn up to $57,000 a year eligible for child care tax credits. Senator Randy Feenstra, a Republican from Hull, has been working on the proposal.“It’s important that parents have dollars that they can spend on child care and so forth,” Feenstra said, “and that’s what this does.”Senator Pam Jochum, a Democrat from Dubuque, said it’s a significant move.“I think that really helps working families a great deal by raising their eligibility limit to get into that credit,” Jochum said during a senate subcommittee meeting on the proposal.The bill also would set up indexing for these child care tax credits. It means there would be annual, incremental increases in the income level at which a parent is eligible to receive a tax credit for child care expenses.last_img read more

It hasn’t worked out there either and he was even loaned to Mexican side Atlas, with the Italian side now understood to be the latest side to wield the axe.
