uSTAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police say 10 students at a Connecticut high school face charges after a food fight that turned into a riot and ended with injuries to a teacher and a school resource officer.
Stamford police said Tuesday that the Westhill High School students ages 15 to 17 are charged with first-degree rioting, breach of peace, reckless endangerment and assault on a police officer.
School officials say Friday’s food fight had been in the planning for days and developed in a courtyard next to the cafeteria.
Police say the resource officer was struck in the head by a full soda can while the teacher was “trampled by a mass of students.”
uJUDGE SAYS ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT ARE NOW SINGLE: LOS ANGELES (AP) — Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are officially single, though more work is left before the terms of their divorce are final.
Los Angeles Superior Court documents show that Judge John W. Ouderkirk entered a judgment Friday, saying the couple is no longer married. Her name was also restored to just Jolie, not Jolie Pitt.
The couple’s lawyers had asked for a bifurcated judgment, meaning that two married people can be declared single before all issues in the divorce are agreed upon.
It’s not clear what issues remain unresolved in the divorce, but Jolie has filed papers saying Pitt wasn’t paying sufficient child support, which his attorneys disputed.
The 43-year-old Jolie and the 55-year-old Pitt have six children. They were married in 2014, and Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
uTRIAL DATE SET FOR WOMAN CHARGED WITH 1990 CLOWN KILLING: WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A trial date has been set in Florida for a woman accused of dressing up like a clown in 1990 and fatally shooting the wife of her future husband.
A Palm Beach County circuit judge on Wednesday set the first-degree murder trial of 55-year-old Sheila Keen-Warren to begin Jan. 31, 2020. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
Keen-Warren was arrested in 2017 and extradited from Virginia, where she lived with husband Michael Warren.
Officials say Warren’s then-wife, Marlene Warren, was shot in the face in May 1990 by a clown delivering carnations and balloons. Investigators say new DNA testing led to Keen-Warren’s arrest.
Several witnesses told detectives Sheila Keen and Michael Warren were having an affair before the killing, which they both denied. They married in 2002.
Keen-Warren denies the killing. Michael Warren has not been charged.
