Deputy Eric Overall, 50, died when he was “deliberately ran down” after putting down “stop sticks” to slow down the suspect’s vehicle, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department said.

Overall was outside of his patrol car at approximately 12:31 a.m. the suspect saw him him, deputies said. The suspect's vehicle then rolled over, the Free Press reported.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, and said Overall died of blunt force trauma, CNN reported.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said Overall “had a great career here and touched a lot of lives.”

“Deputy Overall was not in the roadway at the time, and in fact was well off the roadway, and he had just deployed the ‘stop sticks.’ It is our belief ... from all evidence collected that the suspect deliberately ran down Deputy Overall, swerving to hit him,” according to a statement from the Oakland County sheriff's office.

The suspect is from Macomb Township and is now in the Macomb County Jail. CNN reported. The Oakland County Sheriff's Office's Special Investigations Unit will present a warrant request to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office on Saturday, the statement said.

Overall was recently married and has an adult son. A GoFundMe account was set up to help Overall’s family, and the goal of $30,000 was met by late Thursday.

Shortly after 9 p.m. last Thursday night, the thieves broke into her home and not only stole the money Horstman was saving for her dog's operation but left her sick pup Prince in a heap of glass.

Foreboding as he may look, Prince has bone cancer on his back leg and can barely move. Not only is Prince on heavy painkillers, but his leg will need to be amputated, and Horstman believes his condition is worsening.

"I'm just lucky they didn't kill my dog," Horstman said. 

Horstman says that after Boston 25 News interviewed her last Monday, one of her friends created an online fundraising page for Prince with the goal of raising $5,000 - the amount needed for his surgery.

However, to her surprise, the overwhelming generosity of those who contributed to the fundraiser help not only reach the goal but exceed far past just $5,000 .

"It is very close to $20,000 right now," Horstman said.

Initially, when Horstman posted about the burglary on Facebook, her mind was set on trying to catch those responsible for the theft.

She says she didn't ask for a dime, but is immensely thankful for those who helped. Prince will have surgery Tuesday and hopefully feel a lot better.

As for the rest of the money, Horstman plans on giving it to other pet owners who need it just as much as she did.

"I've decided to make some donations to Broken Tail Rescue that are here local in Worcester and possibly another rescue depending on how much is left over from Prince's surgery," Horstman said.

After our initial story on the burglary aired, Horstman said police told her this may be related to other recent burglaries. She is anxiously awaiting word of an arrest.

Horstman is urging people who want to help to give back to local animal shelters. She has since asked her friend to shut down the fundraising page.

Bank employees told police the woman, identified as Emily Coakley, brandished a gun and demanded $400, CBS Philly reported.

It didn’t take long for the police to arrive, and they arrested the senior citizen. Authorities say the woman had a .38-caliber revolver.

They said the gun was not loaded, but, she did have bullets in her purse, according to The Morning Call.

University of Pennsylvania police responded to a robbery call at the TD Bank at 3735 Walnut St. around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Coakley has been charged with aggravated assault, robbery and other related offenses.

According to witnesses, Coakley had visited the bank the day earlier and was under the impression she had been shorted $400 from her withdrawal that was the specific total she demanded from the teller. Her family later arrived and tried to defuse the situation.

Despite this, people near the bank weren’t happy.

“Someone could have got shot, even accidentally. You have to have concerns. People bring their kids here,” customer Will Duggan told Fox 29 in Philadelphia.

The Morning Call said she did not offer comment as police escorted her from the bank.

The president's Thanksgiving message to the troops causes a stir

On Thanksgiving morning, President Donald Trump delivered a message via teleconference from his luxury resort in Mar-a-Lago to American military service members overseas — but not everyone is happy about it.

>> Read more trending news

Retired Lieutenant General Mark Hertling appeared on CNN on Thursday to air his grievances with the content of President Trump’s Thanksgiving message to the troops, referring to the president’s remarks as “somewhat insulting” and “off-kilter.”

Hertling was gracious enough to confess that he was “thankful for the fact that [Trump] did address the soldiers,” but added, “[T]he message that I heard and some of the things he said would have not rung very well with me, had I been a deployed soldier.”

“Everybody’s talking about the progress you’ve made in the last few months since I opened it up,” the president said in his message. “We opened it up, we said go ahead, we’re going to fight to win. We’re not fighting anymore to just walk around, we’re fighting to win. And you people, you’ve really turned it around in the past three to four months like nobody’s seen and they are talking about it. So thank you very much, brave, incredible fighters.”

“We have been winning,” Hertling said on CNN. “You’re talking to soldiers and military personnel around the world who have been in this fight for 17 years, and to suddenly be told they’re winning now when they weren’t winning before is somewhat insulting, first of all.”

“I know it’s hard to be away from home at this time of the year. We’re doing well at home,” Trump said, in a boastful remark about the state of the nation’s economy. “The economy is doing really great. When you come back, you’re going to see with the jobs and companies coming back to our country, and the stock market just hit a record high, unemployment is the lowest it’s been in 17 years, so you’re fighting for something real. You’re fighting for something good.”

Hertling also took issue with that, saying, “The comments about the economy and where the economy is growing — deployed service members don’t want to hear about that.” He then said troops just want to be thanked.

“So again, trying to be positive, I’m glad the president at least took some time to say thank you to the troops around the world, and he’s going to a Coast Guard station today, but the rest of the message may have been a little off-kilter,” Hertling concluded.

Fellow teen idol Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees remembers David Cassidy

Few people knew the late David Cassidy like Monkees band member and former teen idol Mickey Dolenz.

>> Read more trending news

Dolenz told Billboard that he met Cassidy early on in their careers and kept in touch with him through the years. They even toured together with Peter Noone in 2013 in “The World’s Greatest Teen Idols” tour.

He told the publication after Cassidy’s death:

We just sort of immediately hit it off in the same way that Davy Jones and I hit it off early, and I think for the same reason. I’d been a child star. I remember Davy Jones from the very early days of the auditions before we were even cast. David Cassidy [had] been born and raised in the business, as had I. So yeah, there was a camaraderie. That happens a lot in any business, but in our business especially. You meet people that have run the gauntlet [and] been through the fire. So you do tend to identify and commiserate with people that have been through the same thing that you have.

Dolenz said that Cassidy always struggled with fame and the business he was raised in, wanting to branch out artistically.

“Like many others, I know he got frustrated in that he wanted to move on. He wanted to play rock 'n' roll. He wanted to play blues. And let’s face it: The hardcore fans and the people that came to see him, they obviously wanted to hear those hits,” Dolenz said.

He continued, “I knew, of course, that David had his demons. Everybody has had their demons in their lives, especially as you start getting older. I kind of wish, and I tweeted this recently, I kind of wish I’d been more help. But I don’t know what I could have done.”

Cassidy died in a Florida hospital surrounded by his family on Tuesday after being admitted days earlier with organ failure. He was 67 years old.

Following his death, many of his famous fans shared tributes to him on social media, and his nephew, Jack Cassidy, thanked fans for their support.

“Thank you all for the love and support your giving my uncle, my family, and me … The responses have been sincerely beautiful!” he tweeted.

Samantha Cox, 24, was taken away from Lake Central High School in St. John, Indiana, in handcuffs after students showed the video to their principal, who informed the authorities.

Junior Will Rogers captured the footage, which appeared to show Cox cutting up a white, powdery substance on a binder, then turning her back to the door and leaning over. Rogers had recorded the video through a locked classroom door at around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 22.

“She’s in the corner, hiding with a chair and a book and what appears to be cocaine, putting it into lines,” he said.

“I actually watched the footage again and again, and I just realized that my English teacher just did cocaine,” Rogers told WGN. The video, posted to YouTube, quickly spread around the campus. When Cox’s fellow staff members discovered it, they notified St. John police.

Cox, 24, was arrested on charges possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, according to a St. John Police Department statement. The drugs involved appear to be a mix of cocaine and heroin, Police Chief James Kveton told The Northwest Indiana Times.

“School officials and police want to recognize and praise the student witness that brought this information to the principal very quickly,” the police statement read. “Their actions showed a tremendous amount of fortitude and integrity.”

Parents were informed of the arrest via a robocall from Lake Central Superintendent Larry Veracco.

“Earlier today, Lake Central administration was made aware of a situation regarding a teacher at Lake Central High School. Swift and forceful action was taken,” Veracco said in the robocall.

“I’m grateful that they found out when they did, and they were quick-acting,” parent Shannon McGrath told WGN.

“You’re told as a child to listen to them, respect them and stuff like that … But it’s kinda hard to respect somebody who does cocaine in a classroom,” junior Anthony Rios told the station.

Not even old grandpa got a pass when it came to some of these disgusting, yet hilarious, fails!

Uncles also weren’t immune from embarrassment when a fan wrote, “My uncle got so drunk that he tried cutting the turkey with the handle.”

One fan shared one hilarious fail that came at their mother-in-law’s expense during Thanksgiving meal prep.

“One year, my mother-in-law was making gravy. She poured the gravy in the strainer and forgot to put a pan underneath, and it all went down the sink!” the writer tweeted. Well, hopefully the turkey wasn’t too dry after that!

Another shared an absolutely grotesque story of an undercooked turkey making its way to the dinner table.

“One year the turkey still had pink juice coming from it after cooking, but my dad said it was just ‘leg juice,’” one fan wrote in. “Everybody but me ended up with food poisoning.”

OMG, people! Use a meat thermometer!

Hopefully your Thanksgiving meal goes off without any fails (or family drama).
