In Tampa, Florida, Covid 19 restrictions have led to some defendants appearing before the judge via Zoom meetings. That was the case when BJ Downs was called before the judge on charges of fraud and petit theft. Downs seemed very polite in his testimony but prosecutors recorded something that sealed his fate. Video shows our Downs shooting up while waiting to speak to the judge. Yikes! Looks like he’ll be facing further charges.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by BetterCreditCards.com
Do you end your text messages with periods? If so, stop it. Researchers showed college students examples of text conversations presented on a phone and through hand-written notes and found that kids rated phone-based sentences that ended in periods as less sincere than those that didn’t. They didn’t note the same effect in hand-written notes.
The text message will turn 30 this year. The first message was sent over the Vodafone network in the UK on December 3, 1992. A man named Neil Papworth sent a message from a personal computer to Richard Jarvis of Vodafone. The message was “Merry Christmas.” The technology behind texting is actually a bit older.
Two things which never finish when they say they will:
Washing machines. If it says 5 minutes remaining it’s not.
Software upgrades/updates. “34 minutes remaining” really means “go ahead and go to a movie.”

Sevier County's 911 dispatch center receives dozens of emergency calls a day from smartphones and smartwatches accidentally activated on rides at local amusement parks. It's taxing dispatchers with added workload, the 911 center's director said. From May until early October 2021, Sevier County received nearly 16,000 accidental 911 calls. Of those, 60%—nearly 10,000 —came from amusement park rides, 911 dispatch director Todd Spence said. It's become so common, dispatchers can nearly discern which roller coasters callers are riding, he said. "We can tell, 'Hey, they're at Dollywood,'" Spence said. "We'll hear people say 'hold on' and 'here we go.' We've actually heard, 'Keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times.'" He blames so-called "Emergency SOS" functions on iPhones and Apple Watches, which activate a 911 call when the side power button is pressed rapidly five times. Spence also said the Life360 app leads to increased inadvertent calls on wilder rides. On its website, Life360 boasts crash detection software that uses GPS and accelerometers at speeds over 25 miles per hour to detect emergencies and dial first responders. "It does increase our workload, it does increase the call volume of the [dispatch] center," Spence said. So far this year, he said dispatchers have seen a 147% increase in emergency call volume in Sevier County. https://www.wbir.com
