A 47-year-old man was arrested after he intentionally drove his car into a New Port Richey house Monday as part of a longstanding feud between him and those inside the home, deputies said.
The Pasco Sheriff’s Office arrested Timothy Farmer Monday afternoon after finding him behind the wheel of his Ford Explorer with the car’s rear-end backed into a house and surrounded by debris.
In addition to the strong odor of alcohol emanating from Farmer’s mouth, deputies said he had slurred speech and blood-shot eyes.
Because of his ‘intoxicated’ and ‘aggressive’ behavior during his questioning, deputies decided to place Farmer into handcuffs, which they said he resisted multiple times.
The arrest report states Farmer admitted to intentionally ramming his vehicle into the house, citing a longstanding feud between him and the occupants of the home.
The sheriff’s office said Farmer did not believe anyone was inside the home when he decided to ram into it. There turned out to be one person inside, but they were not injured.
Farmer has been charged with DUI, burglary, resisting arrest, driving with a suspended license, violation of pretrial release, and felony criminal mischief.
If you're wondering, he got pepper sprayed first, then the spray ignited when the taser struck up. Neat trick.
Lessons learned, stitches earned.

The Tahlequah Police Department on Friday released the body camera footage of Monday’s officer-involved fatal shooting, and Police Chief Nate King said it shows officers acted courageously.
On Oct. 7, officers responded to a domestic dispute involving a firearm. Geneva Vaughn had called 911 after her ex-husband, Bobby Lee Vaughn, pointed a loaded handgun at her.
“I told him he had to put the gun up,” Vaughn told 911. “He wouldn’t put it up; I told him at least give me the magazine. He loaded it, cocked it, and pointed it at me.”
Among the officers who arrived at 902 S. State Ave. within minutes were patrolmen William Jacob Robertson and Bronson McNiel, and Detective Chris Boals.
“Within about five minutes, there were 12 of us total there. I was one of those officers on scene prior to police using deadly force,” King said Friday. “It was a tense situation, to say the least.”
McNiel spoke to the ex-wife, who was out by the street as other officers went to the door. One went to the front porch to back up fellow officers after the woman said Vaughn had a Colt .45.
Officer Steven Smith was first to enter the house, and his body camera footage shows he yelled for the suspect to come out with his hands up. He continued to shout and Vaughn could be heard saying, “OK.” But a few seconds later, a gunshot rang out, and Smith responded quickly with “Shots fired!” Officers retreated and Smith repeatedly called for Vaughn to come out and talk.
“Vaughn replied and said, ‘Don’t shoot me,’ and Smith responded, “OK, step out and show me your hands,'” said King. “Vaughn said, ‘I’m not going to do that.’”
Smith could hear Vaughn “raking his gun” and backed away from the doorway. King said the other officers were in positions that were “vulnerable if shots rang out." The officers took cover behind patrol cars, where they covered the front door and front windows of the house. They continued to communicate with Vaughn.
By this time, King was on the scene, and he called Cherokee Nation Marshals SWAT Team for assistance.
King released body camera footage from Robertson, who was hunkered down behind a patrol car. Vaughn approached the doorway and began to raise his handgun toward the officer. In the footage, officers are heard yelling, “He’s got a gun!” and telling him to drop his weapon.
Robertson is then heard saying he has a shot, while the other police were trying to get Vaughn to drop his weapon. They continued to plea with him and told him everything was going to be OK.
Five shots were fired from Robertson, McNiel and Boals, and Vaughn retreated back into the house. Officers didn’t see Vaughn collapse and said they didn’t know whether they had shot him.
“Best we could tell from the evidence collected at the scene and the video itself, there are five distinct shots there – four by pistols and one by AR 15 or 223,” said King.
Around 4:30 p.m., the SWAT team arrived and took over tactical operations, while city officers maintained a perimeter around the house. Crisis negotiator Cory Keele was on a speaker for over an hour, pleading with Vaughn to come out with his hands up.
The SWAT team began to shoot tear gas into the house to force Vaughn out. King said they were concerned he was “fortifying” himself inside or was going to create more danger for officers.
“Marshal Service shot tear gas for quite some time until we were satisfied we had no other option but to make entry into the residence,” said King.
Around 6 p.m., when the SWAT team went to place their camera-equipped robot in the front door, they found Vaughn lying in the floor, “mortally wounded.” They cleared the house and EMS pronounced him dead.
King said two weapons were lying next to Vaughn: a semi-automatic and a shotgun.
A police officer in Miami Beach has been relieved of duty after a risqué video showed him with three lingerie models walking outside the department's headquarters.
The video, making rounds on social media, showed 11-year veteran Officer William Beeker walking behind the models up the steps of the building on Washington Avenue, with all three in handcuffs at the time.
In a statement, Miami Beach Police say that Beeker was relieved of duty Tuesday as their investigation continues into the case.
"It is disgusting that a representative of the Miami Beach Police Department, and the City as a whole, would choose to participate in this distasteful video," city manager Jimmy Morales said in a statement. "He has made a mockery of the men and women of the MBPD who work hard each day to serve and protect our community."
Officials did not say if Beeker was on duty at the time of the video shoot and if he was paid by the producers to appear.
San Diego, The San Diego Police Department
Released Body Worn Camera Footage from critical incident regarding the officer involved shooting that took place on August 24, 2019 in the El Cerrito community in the 5800 block of Adelaide Avenue.
A 70-year-old woman called police shortly before 7:50 p.m. on Saturday, August 24 and tells the dispatcher that her nephew Dennis Carolino 52 years old had thrown bricks at her. “He’s out of his mind,” she said.
Body camera video shows Carolino's aunt telling Officers Mendez and Keyes, assigned to SDPD's Mid-City Division that her nephew tried to hit her with a brick twice and she's concerned he is not taking his medication.
As the officers entered the backyard area to determine the location of the man, he quickly emerged from an outbuilding, holding a shovel.
The officers gave the man verbal commands to drop the shovel. One of the officers drew his Taser at that point. The man did not cooperate with the officers’ commands and began to rapidly advance on the officers as he swung the shovel.
One officer fired the Taser, which did not have any effect on him. The man continued to advance, prompting the other officer to fire his service weapon,” San Diego Police said in a statement.
Carolino was shot multiple times and died of his injuries.
Newly released bodycam video shows the moment a police officer came in contact with a teenager pretending to be a sheriff’s deputy in Albuquerque, according to police. Brenden Wysynski, 18 was arrested and charged as an adult with impersonating a peace officer on September 9, a criminal complaint obtained by KOAT said.
At 12:30 a.m. Monday, a police officer with the Albuquerque Police Department was driving on city streets north of downtown when he saw a car with red and blue flashing lights pulled over for what appeared to be a traffic stop, according to the complaint.
When thee officer drove by the cars a young man waved at him, according to the complaint. That’s when the officer turned around and stopped to find out what was going on. Wysynski was wearing, according to the officer, “regular clothing” and a star-shaped badge on his belt, the complaint said. He identified himself as a deputy with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department, police say. “I know, I know I’m under equipped,” Wysynski can be heard saying in the body cam video.
When asked why he was conducting a traffic stop, Wysynski told the officer the SUV he stopped had been driving 120 mph.
“I was just heading over there to the courthouse,” Wysynski says in the video. “I know it makes no sense, I caught him going 120 down I-40.”
The officer requested Wysynski’s identification and asked about the makeshift flashing blue and red lights attached to his car. He then told Wysynski to return the documents he had taken from the SUV driver.
As the officer calls for a supervisor to assist him, Wysynski says: “For starters, I know this looks really bad.” He gives his birth year as 1994 and says the badge belonged to his late father. Police later confirmed he was born in 2001, and he eventually admitted he bought the badge online. Finally, he says: “I’m just gonna be straight-up with you. I’m not a cop.”
Wysynski did not respond to a Facebook message seeking comment. He has entered a not guilty statement.
Wysynski’s attorney, Carlos Scarborough, said in a statement that his client was released on his own recognizance, meaning he signed a written statement that he will show up to scheduled court appearances and not do anything illegal while waiting for a court date.
San Ysidro, San Diego- On April 3, 2019, at approximately 1:33 p.m., the San Diego Police Department Communications Center received multiple 911 calls regarding gunshots being heard in the
area of 190 West Calle Primera.
Officers arrived on the scene a few minutes later and attempted to contact the man described by the callers, which prompted an officer-involved shooting. As with any officer-involved shooting occurring in the City of San Diego, the San Diego Police Department Homicide Unit responded to conduct the investigation.
The investigation is still in its preliminary stages, but according to civilian eyewitnesses, gunshots were heard in the neighborhood and a male 50 year-old Alfonso Cervantes with an AK47 style rifle was seen walking through the RV Park. The witnesses described the man as acting strangely and appeared to be hiding from someone.
Multiple citizens said the man pointed the rifle at them during the initial incident.
Several San Diego Police Officers arrived on scene and established a perimeter as they developed a tactical plan to handle the incident as safely as possible. At one point, the man approached the officers’ location and fired a round from his rifle. The man retreated behind a row of RVs and was again seen a few seconds later, still holding the rifle. An officer gave directions to the man to drop the weapon, but he did not cooperate. According to a witness, the man raised the weapon towards the east – in the direction of the officers – and gunshots were again heard and the man fell to the ground.
Officers immediately approached and began administering first aid, until being relieved by medics. Unfortunately, the man did not survive and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Thankfully, no other civilians or officers were injured in what could have been a much more tragic incident. A loaded assault-style rifle was found next to the man.
One San Diego Police Officer fired his weapon during the incident. Multiple residents also reported that the man had pointed the rifle at them during the initial incident, Police said.
The gunfire prompted a brief lockdown at nearby Willow Elementary School.
Officials have released footage of the body camera worn by a Wellington City Police reserve officer when he shot and killed a man last month.
Bobby Ray Duckworth, 26, was in a mental health crisis, his fiancé Sydney Fernandez said, and went out into a field with a knife wanting to be killed by police on Sep. 10.
The incident happened in Wellington near 900 East and Railroad Avenue.
The raw, unedited video shows the unidentified reserve officer get out of his car to speak with Duckworth. A set of railroad tracks and dense brush stand between the officer and the field where Duckworth stood. The officer tells Duckworth to put the knife down multiple times and tells him he wants to help. Duckworth begins walking toward the officer, who backs up. At one point, the officer points his gun at Duckworth and tells him to drop the knife or he would shoot him. Duckworth continues to advance, and at about 20 feet of distance between the two, the officer fires multiple shots that hit and killed the 26-year-old.
Carbon County Detective Wally Hendricks then walks viewers through the footage and recreates the scene.
According to a press release from the Carbon County Sheriff's Office, a multi-agency investigation was conducted into the incident beginning the same day.

On August 19, 2019, around 4:19 p.m., LAPD, uniformed patrol officers, assigned to Mission Division, received and responded to a "Family Dispute" radio call for service at the 13100 block of Ottoman Street. When the officers arrived at the location they met with the person reporting, who directed them to the suspect (later identified as) Carlos Torres Jr.
The officers encountered Torres on the front porch and attempted to speak with him. After several minutes of dialog, he stepped back into the residence as he removed a concealed handgun from his waistband. Torres then pointed the handgun at the officers and fired at them, which precipitated an OIS.
Torres retreated into the house and a few moments later he was seen running through a neighborhood yard and onto Ottoman Street. As Torres continued to run westbound on Ottoman Street, a second OIS occurred. Torres then ran through a residential property on Ottoman Street and into the rear east/west alley of that location.
A responding Foothill Division, Gang Enforcement Detail unit, saw Torres in the alley and stopped their patrol unit at the mouth of the alley on Arleta Avenue. Torres again raised his handgun in the direction of the officers, at which time a third OIS occurred. Torres collapsed in the alley and was taken into custody without further incident.
The Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced Torres deceased. A .22 caliber handgun was located at scene and recovered as evidence. Fortunately, no officers or innocent bystanders were injured during this incident. LAPD's specialized Force Investigation Division (FID) responded to the scene and began interviewing witnesses and collecting forensic evidence. A representative from the Office of the Inspector General responded and monitored the scene investigation.
Memphis, Tennessee --- Body camera footage of a man shot by Memphis police in 2018 was released by the Shelby County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday.
The footage of D'Mario Perkins, 29, shows the night where he was approached by two MPD officers, Brandon Barnes and David Reinke, while he was sitting in his car.
It is not clear whose body camera footage was operating at the time of the shooting due to redacted information in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations documents.
At 45 seconds into the video, Perkins was approached by officers while he was inside of a blue Pontiac Firebird while on South Third Street and Mitchell Road. An officer on camera approached Perkins saying his license plates were not registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Perkins then appears to tell officers he was feeling suicidal while on camera. Not long after an officer is heard yelling "drop the weapon" and then several shots were immediately fired.
It is not clear on footage who fired the shots first on camera.
Images from Perkins' car show that several shots were fired, shattering the rear window of the car. Other images show at least nine shots were fired at the door of the car Perkins was driving that night.
The door of the car D'Mario Perkins was driving was shot at at least 9 times.
Death ruled suicide, no officers charged The medical examiner ruled the shot to the head as self-inflicted and listed it as the cause of death before the other nine shots were fired.
Perkins was shot in his torso, left shoulder, back, right shoulder and was grazed on his right ear, right side of his jaw, left eyelid, left eye and left elbow, according to the report.
No officers were injured during the shooting.
On August 14, 2019, around 5:50 p.m., uniformed officers assigned to Pacific Patrol Division responded to a radio call of a screaming man at Thornton Court and Pacific Avenue. Upon arriving at the location, the officers encountered the suspect,
John Penny, who was initially armed with a glass bottle. Penny refused to drop the bottle and approached officers. The officers deployed a taser, however it appears the darts did not strike Penny. Penny then armed himself with a three-foot-long wooden plank and again approached the officers, which resulted in an Officer-Involved- Shooting. Penny was struck once in the left arm and once in the left thigh. The officers also deployed one round from a beanbag shotgun and one 40mm round.
Penny was treated at scene by members of the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) and then transported via Rescue Ambulance (RA) to UCLA Westwood Medical Center, where he was treated and cleared for booking. No officers were injured during the incident.
