5 Teens Charged In Carjacking, Crime Spree That Left 1 Suspect Dead

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Five teens were charged Wednesday in connection to a crime spree that left an 18-year-old dead in Newark.

The suspects – between the ages of 14 and 17 – were all in custody Wednesday evening, according to the Essex County Prosecutor’s office. Their names have not been released due to their ages.

One of the teens lives in Orange, and the rest in Newark, prosecutors said.

At 6:41 a.m. Tuesday, a silver Jaguar was carjacked on Ivy Street in the Vailsburg section of Newark, prosecutors said. The vehicle was believed to be involved in a string of other crimes, including robberies and shootings, police said.

A victim was shot, but it was not clear where, CBS2’s Christine Sloan reported Tuesday.

Police began chasing the car, but all six occupants jumped out near Hawthorne Avenue School, at Hawthorne Avenue and Clinton Place in Newark, police said.

Three suspects were arrested on the spot, but one – Tyree Crawford, 18 – was struck and killed by a police car, police said. Two other teens fled into a home on Runyon Avenue and barricaded themselves inside, police said.

The remaining teens finally surrendered with their hands up, police said.

The prosecutor’s office said a preliminary investigation uncovered two handguns inside the carjacked vehicle.

The spree of violent crime comes amid a spike in gun violence and homicides in the city.

When asked about what the city plans to do to combat crime in Newark, Police Director Eugene Venable told Sloan they’ve already put a plan to action.

“We put that plan out there already. I told you we have 115 police officers out here and as a result of that, that’s why we were able to make an apprehension today,” Venable said.

Scot McCloughan’s Wife Jessica Apologizes for Vulgar Tweets Aimed at Reporter

The Washington Redskins have been mired in drama over the past few days, and an off-field controversy added to the team’s problems Wednesday. 

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Jessica McCloughan, the wife of Washington general manager Scot McCloughan, apologized Wednesday evening after directing disparaging remarks toward ESPN reporter Dianna Russini on Twitter. 

Mike Jones of the Washington Post passed along text of Jessica McCloughan’s apology: 

“Dianna is an excellent reporter who should never have to be subjected to such vulgar comments,” ESPN said in a statement, according to Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith. “We are obviously extremely disappointed by today’s developments.”

The Washington Post‘s Dan Steinberg noted that it’s been quite a week for the Redskins, who benched quarterback Robert Griffin III in favor of Kirk Cousins on Monday:     

Sports Illustrated‘s Richard Deitsch joked that Wednesday’s incident could at least temporarily serve as a distraction to the team’s on-field troubles:

At this point, Washington is merely looking forward to the start of the regular season, when it will find out if Cousins—who’s entering the final year of his rookie deal—can shoulder the load and solidify his place as the team’s quarterback of the future. 

The Redskins are slated to open their 2015 season Sept. 13 at home against Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins. 

Scratch That — Kim Richards Could Still Face Jail Time! The Real Housewives Star Reportedly Skipped Her Court Date & Rejected Her Plea Deal!

How on earth…

You know how we told you about Kim Richards narrowly escaping consequences for her drunken arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel?

Yeah, well it seems as though initial reports were mistaken, because the Real Housewives star apparently skipped her court appearance on Monday due to an injured foot and actually rejected the plea deal.

That same plea deal that consisted of just three years probation, with 30 days of community labor and 52 AA classes.

[ Related: Could Kim Richards Come Back On Beverly Hills?! ]

Kim’s attorney claimed that they wanted a better offer and were expecting 30 days of community service, as opposed to the super hard labor we’re sure the Beverly Hills court system was going to through at her.

The newest Pre-Trial court date is set for September 14, and if things go poorly for the Bravolebrity, she could go to jail!

We don’t think Kim was really in the position to turn down such a cushy deal… but we’ll see if it somehow works in her favor. Again.
