  • Facing Misconduct Investigation, Panthers Owner Selling TeamFacing Misconduct Investigation, Panthers Owner Selling Team

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Facing a growing investigation that accuses him of sexual misconduct and using racist language at work, Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced Sunday that he will sell the NFL team after the season. The team announced on Twitter that Richardson is selling the team, linking to a five-paragraph letter by the franchise’s only owner. “I believe it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership,” Richardson wrote, saying he wouldn’t begin discussions until after the season. The Panthers, who lost in the Super Bowl two seasons ago, are in playoff position again. “I hope everyone in the organization, both on and off the field, will be firmly focused on one mission: to play and win the Super Bowl,” said Richardson, 81. Richardson’s letter did not directly address the investigation or allegations against him. The NFL awarded Richardson, a former player with the Baltimore Colts, an expansion franchise in 1993, and he has been the team’s only owner. “There has been no greater mission or purpose in my life than to have brought and NFL franchise to Charlotte,” Richardson wrote. “The obstacles back then were significant and some even questioned whether or community could or would support professional football. But I always knew that if given the chance the Carolina would rise to the occasion. And you have.” Richardson attended Sunday’s win over the Green Bay Packers at Bank of America Stadium and was photographed sitting beside his wife Rosalind in his luxury box. He did not speak to reporters. The NFL had no comment on the upcoming sale of the Panthers. “While I will no longer be the team owner, I will always be the Panthers Number One fan,” Richardson’s letter said. The Panthers are tied to Charlotte through June of 2019. The city of Charlotte and the Panthers reached agreement on improvements for the team’s stadium in 2013. The plan called for the city to contribute about $87 million for renovations to Bank of America Stadium in exchange for a six-year hard tether to keep the Panthers in Charlotte. The money is less than what the team was seeking for improvements of the stadium, which opened in 1996. Forbes estimates the Panthers worth at $2.3 billion. The Buffalo Bills sold in 2014 for $1.4 billion following the death of owner Ralph Wilson. Richardson and his ownership group paid $206 million in 1993 for an expansion team. Richardson’s announcement comes after a Sports Illustrated report Sunday that cited unnamed sources who said Richardson made sexually suggestive comments to women and on at least one occasion directed a racial slur at an African-American Panthers scout. The report states that the settlements came with non-disclosure requirements forbidding the parties from discussing the details. The NFL on Sunday said it has taken over the investigation of allegations of workplace misconduct. Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said Sunday the team requested the league take over the investigation for “transparency reasons.” The Panthers began play in 1995 but have never delivered on Richardson’s promise of winning a Super Bowl. They lost after the 2003 and 2015 seasons. Panthers interim general manager Marty Hurney said he had never seen any evidence of Richardson displaying any sexual or racial misconduct in the workplace. “If this (sale) happens I think it is a significant loss for the NFL,” Hurney told The Associated Press. “I have the utmost respect for him as an owner. Our employees have the utmost respect for him. I came back because of the respect I have for him and for the organization he started and developed.” Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said after Sunday’s win over Green Bay that Richardson has served as a father figure to him since his arrival in Carolina seven years ago. “For me I hope things don’t alter my thinking of Mr. Richardson,” Newton said. “But I do know that he has given me some things that I will forever be appreciative of.” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said after the game it is important to let the process play out. “The only thing I can speak on is for what he has been to me as far as I’m concerned,” Rivera said. “A lot of you know I had a house fire, and he was there for (my wife) Stephanie and I. He was tremendous in supporting us. My brother passed, and Mr. Richardson was there and helped me get to the funeral and back. I can’t speak to anything other than that.” Richardson was hospitalized 2008, one month after receiving a pacemaker for heart problems. He underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2002 and was placed on a donor waiting list for a new heart. He received the new heart on Feb. 1, 2009, and has not had any known setbacks since. It has been a wild year for the Panthers organization. Team president Danny Morrison abruptly resigned in February. Richardson then fired general manager Dave Gettleman on the eve of training camp and replaced him with Hurney on an interim basis.

  • Power Outage Cripples Atlanta Airport, Some BWI Flights ImpactedPower Outage Cripples Atlanta Airport, Some BWI Flights Impacted

    BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — A sudden power outage brought the world’s busiest airport to a standstill Sunday, grounding more than 1,000 flights in Atlanta just days before the start of the Christmas travel rush. Hours after the blackout began, authorities announced that electricity would be restored at the Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport by midnight. Passengers at the airport were left in the dark when the lights went out at around 1 p.m. The outage halted all outgoing flights, and arriving planes were held on the ground at their point of departure. International flights were being diverted, officials said. At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, several incoming and outgoing flights have been delayed or canceled. Check flight statuses here. Delta passenger Emilia Duca, 32, was on her way to Wisconsin from Bogota, Colombia, when she got stuck in Atlanta. She said police made passengers who were in the baggage-claim area move to a higher floor. She said restaurants and shops were closed. Vending machines weren’t working. “A lot of people are arriving, and no one is going out. No one is saying anything official. We are stuck here,” she said. “It’s a nightmare.” According to a Georgia Power statement, a fire in an underground electrical facility may have been responsible for the outage. The cause of the fire was not known. “No personnel or passengers were in danger at any time,” the statement said. No areas outside of the airport were affected by the power loss. The utility said that there are “many redundant systems in place” to ensure the power supply to the airport and that such outages at the airport “are very rare.” That wasn’t enough to comfort Jeff Smith, 46, of Pittsburgh, who ended up stuck in a plane on the tarmac for three hours after it landed. “This is the worst experience I’ve ever had at an airport,” he said. Sara Melillo, who was traveling to Pittsburgh from Kenya, where she lives with her husband, Greg Presto, to spend Christmas with his family were stuck on the tarmac for six hours. The couple had made stops in Nairobi and Amsterdam and landed shortly after the lights went out in Atlanta. She said the pilot didn’t have a lot of information for the travelers but the plane had air conditioning and attendants offered water and juice a few times. She described the Delta terminal as “big chaos” with not enough customer service for the hundreds of people trying to find a flight to their next destination and a place to sleep for the night. With her new boarding pass handwritten and her bags still stuck on a plane, Melillo was hopeful that she and her husband would be able to get a flight in the morning to Pittsburgh, she said as she waited for an Uber to take them to a hotel. By evening, power had been restored to at least one concourse. On its Twitter page Sunday night the airport tweeted, “Power on Concourse F is back ON! We are working with great urgency w/ @GeorgiaPower to restore power throughout rest of airport.” Airport workers were distributing bottled water, and Dunkin’ Donuts was giving out doughnuts. Officer Lisa Bender of the Atlanta Police Department said officers were at the airport to help with crowd control and managing traffic around the airport. Delta Air Lines, which has its hub at the airport, said about 900 mainline and connection flights were cancelled, and 48 flights were diverted. Delta temporarily embargoed unaccompanied minors from traveling Monday. At Southwest Airlines, about 70 Atlanta departures out of 120 scheduled for Sunday were cancelled, an airline spokesman said in an email. United Airlines and JetBlue Airways were among carriers reporting delays or cancellations. Mozell Smith, 58, of Atlanta arrived at the airport hours after the electricity went off. He was headed to Las Vegas with a sister and a friend. “This is terrible. I wish someone would’ve given us a heads-up before we got to the airport,” he said. “I wish there would have been better communication.” American Airlines reported only a handful of diversions and cancellations because the carrier does not use Atlanta as a hub, airline spokeswoman Alexis Aran Coello. Hartsfield-Jackson, which serves 104 million passengers a year, is the world’s busiest airport, a distinction it has held since 1998. The airport serves an average of 275,000 passengers daily, according to its website. Nearly 2,500 planes arrive and depart each day.

  • Study: More People Using Uber Over An Ambulance For Hospital TripsStudy: More People Using Uber Over An Ambulance For Hospital Trips

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — More people appear to be calling an Uber instead of an ambulance for rides to the hospital, according to a recent study. The University of Kansas study examined ambulance rates in more than 750 U.S. cities. Since the ride-sharing company was introduced in those areas, ambulance usage rates declined by at least 7 percent between 2013 and 2015, according to the study. David Slusky, University of Kansas assistant professor of economics, and co-author Leon Moskatel, an internist at San Diego’s Scripps Mercy Hospital, report Uber may be more appealing because of the high costs associated with ambulance rides.

    BALTIMORE (AP) — A disgraced Baltimore Police detective who pleaded guilty earlier this year to robbing residents was the subject of an internal affairs investigation into similar allegations in 2009. The Baltimore Sun reports that Jemell Rayam was charged internally with making a false statement involving the theft of $11,000 from a man during a traffic stop. Rayam was cleared by a police trial board and later promoted to an elite gun squad. Rayam pleaded guilty to federal racketeering conspiracy in October. He was among eight officers on the gun squad who were indicted on racketeering charges. The case has had a profound impact on criminal cases in Baltimore. Prosecutors have dropped more than 100 cases involving the indicted officers. Follow @CBSBaltimore on Twitter and like WJZ-TV | CBS Baltimore on Facebook (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Investigators are looking for additional victims after a Baltimore veterinarian was charged with viciously attacking the very same animals he was supposed to be treating. “He was actually inflicting pain on animals that were brought into the hospital,” says Baltimore Police Capt. Jaron Jackson. During a month-long investigation from October November, authorities say Gregory Burbelo physically attacked the four-legged patients. “This is a person we trusted with our pets,” says Jackson. Detectives say the 57-year-old man used his hands and other items to hit at least three dogs at the Boston Street Animal Hospital. “We know that he punched and slapped the animals with a clipboard, punched and smacked them with an open hand and closed fist,” says Jackson. Even more troubling, detectives say Burbelo went as far as to threaten workers if they reported the incidents. The hospital issued a statement to WJZ, saying in part: “We want our clients and the public to know that we set and enforce the highest possible standards of care.” Burbelo, who no longer works at the hospital, faces a number of charges, including aggravated assault and animal cruelty. Detectives say they’re now looking for more potential victims. “We don’t know if there are any other victims out there, but we definitely want to find them,” says Jackson. Police are urging owners who have had their pets treated at the hospital to give them a call. Follow @CBSBaltimore on Twitter and like WJZ-TV | CBS Baltimore on Facebook

  • Police Warning Baltimore Co. Residents After Uptick In Car TheftsPolice Warning Baltimore Co. Residents After Uptick In Car Thefts

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A string of stolen cars has many people on edge in Dundalk, Maryland, where nearly 15 vehicle thefts have been reported since the beginning of December. Baltimore County Police are unsure whether it’s one individual or a group committing the crimes. The worst part: Authorities say most of the cases were easily avoidable as nearly all involved people who left their keys in the car while warming it up. “All these thieves need is a good 10-15 seconds and they’ll take your car,” says Baltimore County Police Cpl. Shawn Vinson. “Some people think that they’re okay just leaving the car running there for 30 seconds or a minute, but there is somebody there lurking or waiting to jump in vehicle.” According to police, thieves have swooped in at many different locations, from driveways to even leaving it running outside a grocery store, but have really honed in on the area off Liberty Parkway. “Its terrible, especially when people are trying to provide for their families, trying to give them a good holiday and you got people out there like that,” says Tyler Brian of Dundalk. The Liberty Parkway area is where Kimberly Muscelli says her car was broken into but not stolen. “They took probably about $4,000 worth of things out of my car,” Muscelli said. Police are reminding citizens how easy it is to avoid becoming a victim. “I feel like you’re kind of asking for it if you leave your keys in the car or leave it unattended running,” Muscelli said. Authorities also want residents to know it’s illegal — a state violation — to leave your car unattended while running. Information on potential suspects have not yet been released.

  • Kansas Police Department Employs State’s First Pit Bull K9 OfficerKansas Police Department Employs State’s First Pit Bull K9 Officer

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Kansas police department is welcoming a new member to its K9 unit: a full-blooded, red nose pit bull named Kano. The dog is the state’s first pit bull K9 officer, according to The Wichita Eagle. The Stafford Police Department says Kano — named after a “Mortal Combat” character because of his “unique” eye color and patches — went through an 8-week training program with Universal K9. The Texas-based organization rescues pit bulls and trains them for law enforcement and veterans. Kano is already hard at work.

  • Police: Virginia Woman Mauled To Death By Her DogsPolice: Virginia Woman Mauled To Death By Her Dogs

    GOOCHLAND, Va. (CNN) — Bethany Stephens’ father went looking for her Thursday night. When he found his daughter, investigators said the 22-year-old’s two pit bulls Tonka and Pac-Man were standing guard over her body. Police say Stephens was found dead in the woods after being mauled to death by the dogs. “It was an absolutely grisly mauling,” Goochland County Sheriff Jim Agnew said. “In my 40 years of law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like it. I hope I never see anything like it again.” Agnew said Stephens was a petite 5-foot-1, no match for her burly 100-125 pound dogs. According to the medical examiner, Stephens was still alive when the animals attacked. “The victim had defensive marks on her hands and arms, trying to keep the dogs away from her, which would be consistent with being attacked while she was still alive,” Agnew said. However, Barbara Norris, a friend of Stephens, doesn’t believe the two dogs would do anything to hurt her. She said Stephens babied the dogs that she had raised since they were puppies. “Those dogs and her, they loved each other,” Norris said. “I wasn’t able to see the body so I can’t tell you what happened. I can’t tell you if it was blunt force or it is was a mauling, but I know those dogs didn’t do it.” (The-CNN-Wire & © 2017 Cable News Network, Inc., a Time Warner Company. All rights reserved.)

  • Police ID ‘Shooting Spree’ Suspect Who Fled Authorities In PursuitPolice ID ‘Shooting Spree’ Suspect Who Fled Authorities In Pursuit

    BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Authorities have identified a man who led police on a pursuit and shot at several people in West Baltimore Friday. City police identified the suspect as 30-year-old Mausean Vittorio Quran Carter of Northwest Baltimore. Police say Carter was wanted in a triple shooting and was spotted by police on Fulton Avenue. The man then took off and reportedly went on a shooting rampage. The man fired shots as he drove through the city, shooting a man in the leg on North Avenue and shooting a person in the upper body who was in a vehicle. Officials say the passenger went into cardiac arrest and is in critical condition. One officer was injured during the pursuit and is receiving treatment at a local hospital. The suspect was arrested in the 1800 block of Gwynns Falls Parkway. A police officer ran to the car when it finally came to a stop at an intersection. The officer pulled the driver out and wrestled him to the ground. Baltimore Police Department spokesperson T.J. Smith said the 30-year-old suspect may be connected to a triple shooting Thursday night that left one person dead in the 4400 Park Heights Avenue and a non-fatal shooting last week on Edmondson Avenue. Two guns were recovered at the scene. Follow @CBSBaltimore on Twitter and like WJZ-TV | CBS Baltimore on Facebook

    ARLINGTON, Va. (WJZ/AP) — Thousands of volunteers placed wreaths on tombstones at Arlington National Cemetery. Another wreath-laying ceremony was held in Baltimore County. The annual Arlington National Cemetery event drew a large crowd Saturday, reportedly with more than 245,000 wreaths placed at grave sites. The Wreaths Across America caravan traveled earlier this month from Columbia Falls, Maine, where the wreaths were made. The caravan went through several states before arriving in Arlington. The grand marshals are Vietnam War Medal of Honor recipient Roger Donlon and his wife, Norma Donlon. The tradition began when Maine wreath maker Morrill Worcester donated 5,000 wreaths to Arlington Cemetery. A total of 1.2 million wreaths will be placed on markers across the country in 1,238 locations. WJZ’s news partner The Baltimore Sun reports a Baltimore County man raised money to place wreaths on the graves of 3,500 veterans at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens in Timonium after not finding any local wreath-laying ceremonies. The event, also held Saturday, reportedly featured “music, representatives from all branches of the military and family members of veterans.” Follow @CBSBaltimore on Twitter and like WJZ-TV | CBS Baltimore on Facebook (TM and Copyright 2017 CBS and its relevant subsidiaries.
