A New Jersey man was arrested for allegedly hosting a massive house party in Alpine that was attended by hundreds of people, most of whom were not wearing masks and were ignoring social distancing protocols during the Coronavirus pandemic. 45-year-old Tashay Knight was charged with “recklessly creating a risk of widespread injury or damage.” He was also issued multiple summonses, including one for violating the governor's executive order that mandates hosts to require that their guests wear face coverings and practice social distancing. The August 1st party, which drew an estimated 300 to 400 people to an Alpine mansion, was disbanded by police at 10:00 p.m. after they received noise complaints from local residents. Authorities said it took three to four hours and several local law enforcement agencies to clear all the attendees from the party. (https://bit.ly/2DY3HED)

Florida woman has been accused of shooting and wounding one woman,
and threatened another following a confrontation outside a grocery
store. 61-year-old Renata Gloria Ray of Greenacres was arrested
Sunday afternoon shortly after the shooting outside a Lake Worth
Publix. She was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault
with a firearm. According to an arrest report, Ray was exiting the
Publix with groceries when she told a younger woman and man to move
out of her way. The two women began to argue, and Ray eventually
pulled out a gun. As another woman was leaving the Publix, deputies
said Ray yelled at her and demanded to know what she was looking at.
The other woman began taking pictures of Ray with her cellphone,
prompting Ray to shoot the woman in the foot. Ray left the scene in a
car, but was pulled over and taken into custody within minutes.
