A Georgia man was sentenced Tuesday to 151 months in prison for illegally transporting methamphetamine and heroin inside children’s candy. 30-year-old Atlanta resident Cleveland James McKinney pled guilty to the charges last November, according to a press release from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Authorities said McKinney traveled to Brandon, Mississippi from Atlanta in April 2018 to receive a drug shipment from Mexico. The drugs were hidden in shrink-wrapped, bulk-packaged children’s candy. McKinney was supposed to take the drugs back to Atlanta for delivery to his co-conspirator, Evelyn Michelle Hernandez. Unbeknownst to him, agents with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) had already intercepted the delivery and swapped the meth and heroin with a “false substance” inside the children’s candy packaging. He was arrested shortly after leaving Mississippi on his return trip. (https://fxn.ws/2HWN8Hm)

Star Trek's Scotty stormed the beach at Normandy. Canadian actor James Doohan, best known for playing Montgomery "Scotty" Scott on the original Star Trek series, served in World War II with the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. As a commissioned lieutenant, he led his troop up a mine-strewn Juno Beach as part of the Allied Forces' D-Day invasion. Later in the day, he was wounded by friendly fire that caused the amputation of the middle finger on his right hand. You might not have noticed it because, during his time on Star Trek, directors did the best they could to avoid showing the injury on screen.

Florida police report that a victim was struck in the head with a thrown McDonald’s McDouble burger during a domestic disturbance. Cops allege that Tyler Hardeman “engaged in a verbal argument with the victim” at a residence in Holiday, a Tampa suburb. During the 9:45 p.m. squabble, the 23-year-old Hardeman first “threw a McDouble at the defendant’s head,” a complaint affidavit reports. The McDouble hit the victim in the left ear, but did not cause injury. Hardeman also allegedly threw a vaping device, striking the victim in the left knee, causing “redness and lacerations.” When the victim sought to run from Hardeman, cops say he grabbed the victim’s shirt, “which resulted in the shirt being ripped off the victim.” Hardeman was arrested for domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Hardeman, who works as a packer at a liquor store, was booked into the Pasco County jail on the felony count. (https://bit.ly/2Qe0J1u)
