Yankees star Aaron Judge’s girlfriend Samantha Bracksieck was busted on “extreme DUI” charges in Arizona. 26-year-old Bracksieck was stopped around 11:50 p.m. on February 25th in Scottsdale after cops allegedly caught her driving a white 2017 Honda HR-V without the headlights on while going up to ten miles above the speed limit. When cops questioned her about the headlights, she said she hadn’t realized they were off. “I could smell a strong odor of an intoxicating beverage coming from inside the vehicle and from her breath as she spoke,” cops wrote in the report, adding that Bracksieck was slurring her words and had bloodshot eyes. Court records show Bracksieck was charged with “extreme DUI” for an alleged blood alcohol concentration level between .15 and .19, as well as a headlight violation and changing lanes in an unsafe manner. Bracksieck pleaded not guilty and her case is still pending. If convicted, she faces potential jail time and fines. (

A nurse on an all-male coronavirus ward in Russia has been disciplined for only wearing lingerie beneath her transparent protective gown. Her revealing picture went viral after being taken by a patient at a hospital in Tula, 100 miles south of Moscow, who said there were 'no complaints' from his bedfellows. But hospital chiefs were not amused and punished the nurse for “non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing.” The unnamed medic in her 20s said she was “too hot” wearing her nurses' uniform under the gown. She told her managers at Tula Regional Clinical Hospital that she did not realize the PPE she wore when treating coronavirus patients was so transparent. Despite this, the regional health ministry reported that “a disciplinary sanction was applied to the nurse of the infectious diseases department who violated uniform requirements.”

self-proclaimed COVID-19 skeptic in Jupiter, Florida has a new outlook after contracting the virus. FLORIDA -

A man in Jupiter, Florida, who admits he was skeptical that the coronavirus was a real threat, has a new outlook after contracting the virus. Around this time last month, rideshare driver Brian Hitchens was a self-proclaimed COVID-19 skeptic. He says he thought "maybe the government trying something, and it was kind of like they threw it out there to kinda distract us." He made Facebook posts downplaying the seriousness. Fast forward to this week and Hitchens has a whole new outlook from his hospital bed. It hits even closer to home for Hitchens after his wife was admitted to the same hospital at the same time for coronavirus. She's been on a ventilator for three weeks.
