    A white woman set off a firestorm in a Brooklyn community and on social media after she called 911 on a black boy at a bodega, claiming he grabbed her butt -- only for surveillance video to show that he never touched her.

    The woman, identified by the New York Post as Teresa Klein, was buying cat litter inside Sahari Deli Market in Flatbush Wednesday when the boy, wearing a school uniform and backpack, walked past her with his mother and younger sister, witnesses say and video shows. His backpack appeared to brush against Klein's backside. 

    Klein whips her head around and begins shouting in the direction of the exiting family, surveillance video shows. She makes crude gestures at them, and the mother is seen walking back and arguing with her. 

    [[497324861, C]]

    Joni Torian, a customer who witnessed the dispute, told the Post, "The mother was right behind him when she says he grabbed her very flat behind. Ain't no mama gonna let her child sexually assault a woman. [Klein] started yelling, 'Miss, you need to watch your son, he just grabbed my ass.' It was kind of funny at first, but then she was saying, 'I will call the cops.'" 

    The fight is then taken outside the store, where witnesses began recording the confrontation. In one video posted to Facebook, Klein is seen getting on her phone and saying, "I'm going to call the cops right now" -- which sends the boy and his little sister into tears. 

    "Mommy!" the little girl bursts out wailing as she clings to her mother's leg.

    Klein is heard saying sarcastically into the phone, as incredulous bystanders watch, "White woman calling the cops on a black lady, I get it." 

    "The son grabbed my a--, and she's decided to yell at me," she tells 911 on the phone. 

    The man filming the encounter shouts at Klein, "Cornerstore Caroline!" -- a reference to the meme mocking white women who call 911 to report what they consider suspicious activity by black people ("Barbecue Becky," "Permit Patty").

    "That's Cornerstore Caroline! We got a new one!" the man filming proclaims. 

    Another passerby shouts at Klein, "Who would want to touch your flat a--? Nobody wants to touch your flat a--!"

    Klein continues speaking into the phone, saying, "I've been sexually assaulted by a child." 

    [[497324931, C]]

    She tells the 911 operator that she'll be going home to meet officers to file a report -- she gives a Prospect Park address -- and after she hangs up, she waves at the man filming and tells him, "Now why don't you upload that to World Star?" 

    Another woman confronts her and asks her if she "seriously called the police on a child."

    "Go away," that other woman tells Klein. 

    Klein, who tells the other woman she's a police officer, replies, "No, white lady, I will not."

    She adds, sarcastically, "One white girl to another, yeah, make the point to the entire audience," gesturing at the bystanders, who happen to be black. 

    The cellphone video posted to Facebook Wednesday had nearly 5 million views by Friday, and more than 24,000 comments from outraged viewers. 

    "Calling 911 for 'her' emergency, glad she didn't die from him 'grabbing' her a--," wrote one person. 

    Many were upset to see the boy and girl in distress: "My heart hurt for those kids, especially the boy," another wrote. 

    Klein returned to the deli Friday night amid the backlash to watch the surveillance video alongside local media and outraged neighbors in the community. 

    "The child accidentally brushed against me," she admitted after watching the video. 

    "Young man, I don't know your name, but I'm sorry," she said. 

    But the apology didn't appease angry customers gathered to watch her reaction: "It's always 'sorry,'" one man shouted. "'Sorry' don't f---ing change anything. What's 'sorry' gonna do for the kid?"

    It seemed to touch off even more emotional backlash among other black men inside the store. 

    "Apology don't solve people's problems, man," one man said. "If it was me, I would have been incarcerated by now."

    Justin Turner has a knack for NLCS game 2 moments. 

    Nearly one year to the day he hit a walk-off, three-run homer in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs, Turner once again provided the magic for the Dodgers.

    Turner hit the game-winning home run in the bottom of the eighth and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied from behind to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers, 4-3, in Game 2 to even the National League Championship Series at one game apiece.

    In the days leading up to the NLCS, the narrative was the Dodgers starting pitching against the Brewers bullpen. There was no regard for Milwaukee starters Gio Gonzalez or Wade Miley.

    Maybe it's time to change that narrative.

    Miley pitched 5 and 2/3 scoreless innings on Saturday, pitching deeper into the game than Dodgers starters Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu.

    The Dodgers simply had no answers for Miley, who by the sixth inning had twice as many hits himself than the Dodgers had collectively. 

    But for the second game in a row, the Dodgers scored a bulk of their runs against the highly touted Brewers bullpen, scoring eight of their nine runs against Milwaukee's relievers. 

    Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw both homered for the Brewers as Milwaukee built a 3-0 lead before the Dodgers bats awoke. 

    Arcia, who only had three homers all season, took Hyun-Jin Ryu deep in the fifth inning to give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead. 

    After a single by Miley and a double by Lorenzo Cain, the Dodgers walked soon-to-be MVP Christian Yelich to load the bases for Ryan Bruan.

    Another Ryan, Ryan Madson, entered the game and escaped the inning, but not without allowing another Brewers run on a fielder's choice groundout. 

    After not allowing a home run to a left-handed hitter in 168 plate appearances during the regular season, Dodgers' reliever Alex Wood has now allowed two homers to left-handers in back-to-back appearances.

    After surrendering the game-winning homer to Freddie Freeman in Game 3 of the NLDS, Wood served up a 91MPH first pitch fastball to Travis Shaw to give the Brewers a 3-0 lead. 

    The Dodgers rallied in the top of the seventh with an RBI single from Cody Bellinger and a bases loaded walk for Austin Barnes, but pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal killed the rally with an inning-ending double play.

    After an infield single by Chris Taylor kicked off the Dodgers half of the eighth, Turner hit his first home of the postseason on a 2-0 splitter from Jeremy Jeffress that put the Dodgers in front. 

    Turner's moment of redemption came on the heels of his first ever four strikeout game of his career in Game 1 as he struck out with the tying run on third base to end the game on Friday.

    Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his second save of the playoffs. 

    The victory snapped the Brewers 12-game win streak.

    The Dodgers have lost their last 10 consecutive postseason series when losing Game 1, the last time they won a series after dropping the opener was in the NLCS against the New York Mets in 1988, the last time they won the World Series.

    Up Next:

    The series shifts to Los Angeles where rookie Walker Buehler will start Game 3 against Jhoulys Chacín.

    All dirt roads in Joshua Tree National Park are closed Saturday, as the National Park Service announced numerous closures due to a Southern California storm that popped up Friday.

    The NPS said that power and internet services were disrupted in many park buildings, closing some visitor services facilities, and severe flooding had forced multiple closures.

    Along with all dirt roads in the park, the inbound and outbound roads in the Cottonwood area have been shut down, along with the visitor center and campground.

    The NSP said that the Cottonwood area expects to be closed for several days and that road crews were working hard to improve road conditions.

    Desert storms build quickly and people should not try and cross moving water, the NPS warned.

    For updates on closures, please follow the Joshua Tree NPS on Twitter.

    A 25-year-old motorcyclist was killed by a hit-and-run driver in a box truck early Sunday morning on the 110 freeway in South LA. The California Highway Patrol is searching for multiple vehicles involved in the incident.

    The crash occurred when the truck changed lanes into the path of the motorcyclist, who was then thrown from the bike and struck by multiple cars, according to the CHP. The motorcycle was dragged underneath the truck for about 200 yards.

    Authorities are searching not only for the driver of the truck, but drivers of some of the other vehicles that struck the victim on the highway, who also fled the scene of the accident.

    The crash led to closure of the all main lanes of northbound 110 for two hours. Three lanes were expected to remain closed for an unknown period of time.

    It's the last Thursday of the month and the rooftop on Skid Row's Union Rescue Mission is transformed. A dance floor and a DJ set the celebratory tone. There's even a unicorn standing by.

    This magical celebration called Worthy of Love is the brainchild of Mary Davis. After suffering a miscarriage 6 years ago, she and her husband Ari turned that loss into something special for others.

    She channeled her grief into a desire to provide joy for children, which led her to the idea to give a birthday party to the kids that were staying rescue mission. It's estimated more than 60,000 children are homeless in the LA area. But only one shelter on skid row allows children and their families to stay there.

    "These kids, they are deserving, and they are invisible to Los Angeles right now," Davis said.

    The first party had only about 15 kids in attendance. In a heartbreaking sign of the times, the number of children living on the streets has exploded, as have size of the parties. Every four weeks they children get to come together and celebrate everyone who has a birthday that month, on this night that included Mary and Ari's little girl Zivah who just turned one. Worthy of Love has celebrated more than 6,000 kids since the parties began.

    "Some of these kids tonight have never had a birthday party, and we're here to celebrate them," Davis said.

    Macaila Gutierrez just turned 9, and while her mom usually buys a cake for her birthday, this party is something special.

    "My favorite part has to be the unicorn," she said.

    From glow-in-the-dark party favors, to glitter tattoos, to a photo booth and personalized airbrushed baseball caps for each child in attendance, it all comes together to create an unforgettable birthday bash.

    "Every time we come here we see the smiles on these children's faces, that gleam in their eye that they are truly enjoying themselves," Ari Davis said.

    Each party ends with the group forming a circle with the birthday kids in the middle, sharing love, laughter and the possibility of even better times ahead.

    Rising temperatures combined with the first Santa Ana winds of the season will create critical fire weather conditions in Southern California starting Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service.

    Following the weekend's storms, temperatures will rise by more than 10 degrees in some areas and humidity will drop significantly. Wind gusts between 35 and 65 mph are expected in wind prone areas.

    These conditions have led to a Red Flag Warning in LA and Ventura counties through at least Tuesday evening. Fire risk will also be elevated in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

    Sen. Marco Rubio warned Sunday that America's "moral credibility" is at risk if it fails in its response to suspected Saudi involvement in the disappearance and possible killing of a Washington Post columnist in Turkey.

    Appearing on "Meet the Press" Sunday, the Florida Republican, a member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that if Saudi involvement is proven, the response must be strong and swift to ensure America's moral standing.

    "Our ability to call Putin a murderer — because he is; our ability to call Assad a murderer — because he is; our ability to confront Maduro in Venezuela or any of these other human rights atrocities like what we see in China, all of that is undermined and compromised if we somehow decide that because an ally who was important did that, we are not going to call it out," Rubio said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.

    And John Brennan, the former CIA director who previously served as a CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia, said Sunday that it would be "inconceivable that such an operation would be run by the Saudis without the knowledge of the day-to-day decision-maker of Saudi Arabia, that's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman."

    San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies had to reach into their bag of tricks, or lunch bag of tricks, to corral a portly pig that had gotten loose.

    The two deputies from the Highland station responded to a call of a pig "the size of a mini horse" wandering the streets. They decided the path of least resistance was to sacrifice a bit of their lunch to create a trial of chips to entice the pig back home.

    He followed them and was secured inside of his gate. The deputies even knew where to take him because they had encountered him on previous calls.

    A Riverside family is living in fear after Maria Diego, mother of five children, says her husband, Juan Andres, came to the family's home Friday and began stabbing her in the neck and head.

    Diego spent time in the hospital following the attack, and she still bears the marks of her attacker. Diego says that before her Andres launched into to attack, he said, "I came to kill you."

    Angelica Antonio, Diego's sister, says the attack occurred in front of the couple's children, and the children tackled the father to allow the mother to get away. Soon after, Andres fled on foot.

    Riverside Police say Andres has been arrested for domestic violence in the past. Anotnio says the incident was for attacking her sister and also that the couple is going through a divorce.

    "We really don't know where he's at right now," Antonio says. "He could be across the street for all we know. We want him to get caught, and we're really scared."

    Antonio says about the children, "They're very scared of their dad. It's scarred them for life."

    Now, police say Andres is wanted for attempted murder.

    A crash involving a bus on the northbound 405 Freeway spilled over onto the southbound 405 Freeway and resulted in closures in both directions of the major Southern California artery Sunday afternoon near the Nordoff Street exit in the North Hills area of Los Angeles.

    The crash was first reported at approximately 1 p.m. by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

    Southbound lanes remained closed, but northbound lanes began to allow traffic through once one of the vehicles involved in the crash was cleared to the shoulder of the freeway.

    The bus settled onto the southbound lanes after crossing over the freeway divider despite the crash occurring on the northbound side of the freeway. The bus sat horizontally across four lanes, including the HOV lane.

    A total of 44 people were evaluated for injuries, and 25 people were transported to local hospitals per the California Highway Patrol. Five people were considered in serious condition, according to LAFD.

    Shortly before 11 p.m., the bus was finally removed from the 405 Freeway, meaning the southbound 405 Freeway was not properly funcitoning for about 10 hours.

    President Donald Trump defended his widely criticized mocking of Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, in an interview on "60 Minutes" Sunday, NBC News reported.

    "If I had not made that speech, we would not have won," he said.

    The Senate narrowly confirmed Kavanaugh to the court last week after an extraordinarily bitter battle. Ford testified that Kavanaugh assaulted her when they were in high school during the 1980s, telling the Senate Judiciary Committee that she thought she would "accidentally be killed." Kavanaugh strenuously denied the allegation.

    "I was just saying she didn't seem to know anything," Trump said in the CBS interview, having described at a rally how she didn't remember key details of the decades-old allegation.

    The interview, in which Trump discussed a slew of things from climate change to the economy, aired Sunday night on CBS' "60 Minutes."

    The deaths of two young orcas in the Pacific Northwest have galvanized Washington state to do more to protect the whales' dwindling population, NBC News reported.

    First, a mother orca known as J35 carried her stillborn calf for 17 days. Then a rambunctious young killer whale known for breaching went missing and was soon declared dead.

    The orcas that spend their summers near Seattle have been listed as endangered as their population has fallen from near 200 to 74 due to falling salmon counts, pollution in the water and intrusions from whale watchers.

    "This is not a time for compromise and for moving slowly," said state Sen. Kevin Ranker. "This is a time for bold actions."

    A new poll shows that little more than a third of Americans would pass a basic multiple choice U.S. citizenship test, NBC News reported.

    The survey, released this month by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, sampled 1,000 American adults and was modeled after the test taken by immigrants in the process of naturalization.

    Respondents 65 and older scored the best (74 percent), while only 19 percent of test-takers 45 and younger passed. The survey asks about everything from important dates to historical figures and current events.

    Q: When to turn off the lights? 

    A: When the sun rises.

    Q: When to turn on the lights?

    A: When the sun sets.

    Q: When to experience "Enchanted: Forest of Light" at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge?

    A: The word "Enchanted" is a giveaway that this is a holiday event, one that sparkles and glows as the year winds down. So if you answered "around Thanksgiving," you're right yet again:

    The 2018 opening date for the annual walk-through-the-garden spectacular falls less than a week ahead of that particular feast, on Sunday, Nov. 18.

    But here's the trickiest question of all: When can you alight upon a ticket to this popular happening, which has become well-known for lovely red lanterns in the Japanese Garden, a spread of illuminated tulips, and other wondrous and iridescent sights, seen by night, at the 150-acre property?

    The answer?

    Monday, Oct. 15 at 10 in the morning.

    That's when general tickets will go on sale, and that's when returning fans, and those who'll be first-timers at the nighttime lark, will begin to pin down the date, or dates, they'd like to bundle up and attend the alfresco event.

    And while there's a fairly large run of dates — Nov. 18 through to Jan. 6 — some evenings do have a way of filling up faster than a glowing tulip changes color.

    A general admission ticket is $28-$30.

    It's the third year for this ever-growing gathering, which will see some fresh sights in 2018, including "new neon benches" and "a whiskey bar overlooking Lightwave Lake."

    "New expansions and enhancements have been made to popular displays such as 'Celestial Shadows' by HYBYCOZO, the spinning polyhedral installations that explore geometry through light, shadow, and perception, as well as the 'Lightwave Lake' light show at Descanso's Lake," says the historic, oak-famous destination.

    Other glittery favorites, from obelisk-like light tubes to pathways lit by soft lights from above, will make a romantic and picture-worthy return.

    Will you need to find something to do with visiting relatives over the holidays? Or do you need a magical and more quite expression of the season, one that involves trees, pathways, art-cool light displays, and the moon and stars?

    Get enchanted, with "Enchanted: Forest of Light," and get your ticket on the soon-ish side.

    Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. is expected in court Monday on allegations that he raped an unconscious teenager when he was a junior at the University of Miami.

    Winslow was 19 years old at the time of the June 2003 incident that led to felony charges of forcible rape and rape of an unconscious woman, prosecutors said. 

    On Monday, a judge is to hear evidence relating to the incident and determine whether there was enough evidence to bind him over for trial.

    His preliminary hearing had been postponed once before so Winslow could recover from knee surgery. 

    Winslow, now 34, has already been bound over for trial on kidnap, forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and forcible sodomy charges stemming from allegations that he raped or attempted to rape at least four women over the age of 50 over a three-month span of time, according to court documents.

    Winslow was first arrested on June 7 after a report of a possible burglary in Park Encinitas, a senior community located on North El Camino Real, east of Interstate 5 and north of Encinitas Boulevard.

    At the time, he faced first-degree burglary charges.

    He was later accused of sexual assault, kidnapping and sodomy in connection with incidents dating back to March 17, according to the complaint. 

    Court documents revealed Winslow had entered the senior community on June 7. Prosecutors say Winslow intended to rape an 86-year-old woman who was sleeping inside her home.  

    The complaint alleges Winslow also raped a 54-year-old woman and a 59-year-old woman on March 17 and May 13, respectively, in his SUV. 

    One of the women accusing Winslow of rape testified that she was choked and told she would be killed if she screamed.

    He had attempted to rape a 71-year-old woman and burglarized her property on June 1 and had indecently exposed himself in public on May 24, the DA's office said.

    Three of the crimes occurred within a mile to 1.5 miles from Winslow's home, prosecutors established.

    Winslow pleaded not guilty and was initially held without bail based on "clear and convincing" evidence he poses a threat to the community and is considered a flight risk.

    The judge later set bail at $2 million. 

    If convicted on all counts, Winslow could be sentenced to life in prison. 

    Defense attorney Harvey A. Steinberg said Winslow looks forward to being vindicated.

    Winslow, the son of former San Diego Chargers great Kellen Winslow Sr., grew up in San Diego and graduated from Scripps Ranch High School before playing his college football at the University of Miami. 

    His NFL career started with the Cleveland Browns in 2004 and included stints with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots and New York Jets.
