GRPD chief: Officers acted appropriately in 12-year-old’s arrest

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Interim Police Chief David Kiddle said officers acted appropriately when they arrested a 12-year-old boy last weekend.

On Thursday, Grand Rapids police released body camera footage of the incident and Kiddle said the officers correctly followed the department’s Youth Interaction Policy.

“All the officers on scene are calm, professional and respectful. The young man, despite his resistance, is treated appropriately, as we would expect,” Kiddle said. “There is no force used other than to restrain him from pulling away.”

The family of Carreion Baker disagrees with that assessment, and say the police overreacted to him playing with his cousin.

Officers were called to the area on a report of a large fight, but say they saw the boy chasing after someone with a wooden pole. Police say Carreion didn’t listen to their commands and resisted officers when he was being put in handcuffs, which he admitted to doing out of confusion.

Body camera video shows him explaining why he was chasing the man once he was in the back of a cruiser.

Carreion’s father, Carroll Baker, says police shouldn’t have questioned him at all without one of his parents or an attorney being there.

“Y’all over did y’all boundaries as being police officers, and when we tried to talk to you all to calm the situation down, you left and turned your backs on us, then asked my son a question in the car without his parents’ permission,” Carroll Baker said. “Because I would have told you, ‘don’t ask my son nothing.’”

Carroll Baker said he has filed a complaint with the department’s Internal Affairs.

Carreion faces a misdemeanor charge of disorderly fighting. Kiddle said there will likely be leniency because of his age.

Artist transforms helmet into tiara for 5-year-old who was shot in the head

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — Kemiyah Edwards is well on the way to recovery after being shot in the head in Henrico County two months ago.

Loved ones say the 5-year-old’s new normal is filled with doctor appointments, re-learning certain activities and information, and wearing a protective helmet nearly every hour of the day.

After hearing about Kemiyah’s story and her remarkable recovery, a local artist wanted to use her passion to spread love to Kemiyah and her family.

“When I heard, oh my God. It just broke my heart,” said Tami Topalu.

The local artist was touched so deeply, she wanted to do something to make Kemiyah feel special.

She first told Kemiyah’s grandmother about the idea.

“I said, you know she has to wear this helmet, can I decorate it? Paulette said that’s a great idea. But the problem is she can never take it off, only when she sleeps,” Topalu recalled.

As it turns out, that was not a problem at all for Tami Topalu.

In the wee hours of the morning, Topalu transformed Kemiyah’s helmet into a treasured tiara, complete with her favorite colors, pink and purple, and all the bling a little girl could ever want.

The helmet was completed just in time for Kemiyah when she woke up the next morning.

“She ran around the backyard and we’re telling her how beautiful she is. Finally, she goes ‘I don`t know what I look like?’ So, I took her in the house and held her up to a mirror and she said, ‘I’m beautiful!’ So that just meant everything. Staying up till 3 in the morning was worth it,” said Topalu.

The artist also gifted Kemiyah a pink and purple treasure box to store her tiara. A box bearing a very fitting inspirational message: “Nothing is impossible.”

“Once I saw that I knew that nothing would be impossible for her to conquer,” said Topalu.

Man takes cops on high-speed chase because he ‘didn’t think they could chase him into a different state’

SLIDELL, La. – Police in Louisiana arrested a man accused of dragging an officer with his vehicle and attempting to run over another officer after shoplifting from Walmart.

On Tuesday, Slidell police responded to the Walmart after getting a call about a shoplifting in progress.

Police say they found 51-year-old Robert E. Myers, of Picayune, Mississippi, trying to flee the scene. Two officers approached Myers while he was sitting inside of his 1996 Ford F-150 pickup truck in the parking lot.

When they asked Myers to step out and speak with them, Myers allegedly refused and placed the truck in drive. One officer tried to stop him, but Myers accelerated, dragging the officer for a short distance through the Walmart parking lot, police said. The officer managed to push himself away from the vehicle and out of the path of the wheels.

As Myers aggressively accelerated through the Walmart parking lot, he allegedly attempted to run over another officer who was able to evade him.

Police responding to the scene reported seeing Myers on Gause Boulevard as he was attempting to get onto the I-10 highway. Slidell officers chased Myers into Mississippi, where he ultimately lost control of his truck on Highway 607.

After Myers was taken into custody, he told officers that “he didn’t think they could chase him into a different state,” according to a police news release.

Mississippi Highway Patrol, who assisted Slidell Police during the pursuit, booked Myers for driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, and no insurance.

Once Myers is charged in Mississippi, he will be extradited back to Louisiana where he will face multiple charges from Slidell authorities, including third offense felony theft, aggravated flight from an officer, aggravated battery of a police officer, aggravated assault with a motor vehicle upon a peace officer, no insurance, and driving with a suspended license.

Myers suffered minor injuries during the crash. No Slidell officers were injured during the incident.
