Egging in Weston Causes $800 in damages

At around 3:15 on the morning of June 5th, 2018, an Opal Creek security guard, whom wished to be cited anonymously, states that he saw and engaged with a Red Honda Accord. The car, he claims, was piled with teens who he believes are responsible for the crime committed to the Azhar residence. Multiple eggs were thrown at Azhar’s vehicle, and a banana was found clogged in the rear pipe of his Blue Honda Civic.

“The driver in the vehicle acted convincingly as a Postmates worker,” the Opal Creek Security guard said. “They seemed like decent, well-mannered kids. We spoke for a few minutes, the driver handed me his Postmates referral code, flashed his I.D., and I let them in, not at all thinking that I would wake up regretting the approval.”

Azhar’s oldest son seems to be the individual of intent of the “pranks”, as it was his car that was targeted. Azhar’s tailpipe saw it’s combustion gas chambers burst, and it’s engine waver for several minutes until it completely shut down.

At the present time, authorities are actively searching through surveillance, tips, and eye witnesses to identify the individuals responsible. This incident appears to be connected with the events that transpired in Wellington, Florida, last week, but confirmation has not been announced.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at at 954-431-2200 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-471-TIPS (8477).

The Deadliest Massacre in United States History

In a span of 15 minutes, an enjoyable evening filled with joy and happiness at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, quickly turned into the deadliest massacre in United States History.

According to witnesses, at about 10:08 p.m. local time Sunday, the outdoor venue holding 22,000 country music fans was interrupted by repeated shots of gunfire.

The gunman, authorities identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, which was directly adjacent to the concert grounds. .

After fifteen minutes of continuous bullets being shot out at concert-goers, officers made contact with Paddock outside of suite 32135 of the resort. Upon exchanging gunfire for a brief time, police held back and waited for the arrival of SWAT to proceed.

Police said officers “breached the hotel room,” which was the location of where Paddock executed his plan, and “found the suspect dead.”

In the hotel room, 23 weapons were found- including multiple rifles with scope attachments.

Currently, the massacre has left 59 people dead and at least 527 injured, however, the death toll may increase in the coming days.

At the present time, no motives has been determined, and police believe the gunman acted alone.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, Sunday night’s massacre in Las Vegas lists as the 273rd shooting in 2017. Regardless of political affiliation, religion, race, and all other unjustified variables that divide us as a country, we all can agree that an end to these senseless acts of violence must come- sooner rather than later.

 

Gauging Lonzo Ball’s Preseason Debut

At the Honda Center on Saturday, a sell-out crowd in Anaheim was decked out in all purple and gold… for a preseason game.

It was not to see a glimpse of Hall of Famer Magic Johnson courtside, nor was it to watch new acquisitions Brook Lopez and Stephen Zimmerman play for the first time in a Lakers jersey. It was to see the number 2 draft pick and Summer League MVP, Lonzo Ball, prove himself to a city that has been left helpless since the departure of Kobe Bryant.

As the Lakers took the stage for the first game of the preseason, all in attendance had their eyes focused on the UCLA star.

Ball finished the night with five points, eight assists and seven rebounds, while leading all Lakers in minutes. The rookie point guard shot just 2 of 9 from the field and saw only 1 of his 5 shots from beyond the arc drop.

From the excess media attention and hype around the Chino Hills native, many expected him to have somewhat of an MVP caliber outing, however, Ball is still a 19 year old learning and growing through each possession, and will only get better as time progresses.

The general consensus on Ball from team management is that he is an exceptional talent, and one that will propel the Lakers into postseason contention once again. The kid’s ceiling is high, and his preseason debut should not distract Lakers fans from the inevitable star that Lonzo will become.

 

The Miami Heat and Josh Richardson Agree to High-valued Extension

The Miami Heat have reached an agreement with guard Josh Richardson on a four-year, $42 million contract extension.

Richardson, a 2015 second-round pick, has quickly emerged as one of Miami’s strongest bench pieces. He averaged 10.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 53 games with the Heat last season, and shot a league leading 40.2 percent from beyond the arc after the All-Star break. 

Richardson’s extension offer comes before that of his draft counterpart- Justise Winslow. His contract extension hints at the likelihood of the upcoming 2017-2018 season being Winslow’s final opportunity to make a strong case in marking his value after underachieving in his first year, and missing the majority of last season due to a torn labrum. 

Miami will look to carve Richardson an increased role in the rotation, and will balance his minutes between both guard positions. 

Richardson will be entering his third year as a member of the Heat, and it’ll be entirely up to him as to whether or not Miami prides itself on this “steal”, or regrets this decision.

Matthew Stafford Makes History

The Detroit Lions have signed Quarterback Matthew Stafford to a historic 5-year contract valued at $125 million, with $92 million guaranteed- making him the highest paid player in the history of the sport.

Stafford, who is winless in the postseason in the three playoff games he’s been in since 2011, was the number one overall pick in 2009, but quickly sunk to mediocrity in the first couple years of his career under offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.

Since then, Stafford has notched franchise record numbers, including consecutive years in 2015 and 2016 where he recorded a completion percentage higher than 65%, and threw for more than 4,200 yards.

The Lions have established a staple to their offense with Stafford’s signing for years to come, and will look to him as the cornerstone of their success offensively.
