Rashay Milner broke her pelvis in two places when she was hit by a car last Saturday. The next day, she was placed on life support.

While she was fighting for her life, Milner's ex-boyfriend showed up to the hospital room uninvited and poured water on her. Security chased the suspect away but could not apprehend him. Milner says she did not know the restraining order against her ex-boyfriend had expired.

"The domestic violence has been going on for a long time," she said. "This was not going to be the last time he came back. That's why I took the measures for him to not be able to get to me."

Milner and her family had Tacoma General move her to another wing in the hospital. Security said they set up a code for visitors, too. However, the suspect returned the following day. This time, police say he poured hot coffee all over Milner and hit her with a food ?.;,mjhgf=1`tray so hard her arm was bruised trying to protect herself.

"He really broke a plate over my head in the hospital," Milner said in tears, "and he just walks out like nothing happened."

She and her family want answers. No one was supposed to know Milner was in a different hospital wing. She also asked the hospital not to disclose information to anyone.

Milner says hospital security apologized. When KIRO-TV asked Tacoma General about the incident, the hospital released this statement:

"Please know that our privacy policy also allows patients to opt out of being listed in the directory for privacy, security or other reasons at any time. The physical safety of patients is important to us and we maintain dedicated security staff in the hospital at all times to respond to any security issues as soon as they arise."

Tacoma police chased the suspect after the second assault but were unable to locate him.

The truck was making deliveries in Lake City when it was stolen, police said

The Krispy Kreme delivery van was stolen Tuesday in Lake City and recovered nearly 200 miles away in Clearwater. There were still dozens of doughnuts aboard the stolen vehicle, so the store manager turned the treats over to the police officers. 

The cops ate a few of them but mainly saved them for the homeless to eat later that day. 

Giant rattlesnake slithers across Florida golf course

Golfers paused their game when a large diamondback rattlesnake slithered across the 14th hole of a Florida golf course earlier this month.

Logan Ungerer was playing a round with some friends at Mangrove Bay Golf Course Oct. 8 when the large reptile made its appearance on the back nine.

"I saw what looked like a stick blowing in the wind on the green. As I got closer, I saw a bird picking at it and knew it was a snake," Ungerer told WTVT. "It was definitely exhilarating. It's not every day you see a huge rattlesnake on a green in Florida."

Diamondbacks, the largest venomous snakes in North America, can grow up to 8 feet, although it is unclear how long this one was. 

Employees at the golf course told the Tampa Bay Times it is the largest rattlesnake they have seen there. 

"I've played many courses and have stuck my hands into some pretty tall grasses or areas where one of these could have been,” Ungerer, 28, told United Press International. “Seeing this massive snake has really made me realize that maybe when I hit the ball out of play, it's just gone.”

Officer caught on camera telling group of minorities he’s ‘trigger happy’ fired from force

A Hartford police officer recorded on camera threatening a group of minorities that he is “trigger happy” was fired. 

>> Read more trending news 

Stephen Barone, a 10-year veteran of the department, discredited the department and violated its code of conduct when he said he felt “trigger happy” and used obscenities when talking to a group of seven men who were either black or Hispanic, internal affairs investigators determined, the Hartford Courant reported

“It’s clear to me that there’s no scenario in which Mr. Barone can return to his duties as a productive member of the Hartford Police Department,” police Chief David Rosado said in a statement

Barone admitted to investigators that he could have used a better choice of words but stood by his actions, believing them to be “effective in maintaining control,” the Courant reported.

Barone, a sergeant when the video was released in August, was demoted, his salary was lowered and he was assigned to desk duty during the investigation, the Courant reported

A hearing officer recommended suspension, not termination, the Courant reported

“I took everything -- I took both reports, I took the report from the hearing officer,” Rosado said. “I reviewed them for a few days to really think about this, because this is not a decision you can make lightly.”

Barone can appeal the termination. He did not comment to the Courant.

Barone had suspected the men of trespassing, prompting the stop in August.

“If anybody wants to fight or run, I’m a little trigger happy guys, I'm not gonna lie,” he said in the video, which was recorded by Rashawn Johnson, one of the men in the group.

This is not the first incident for Barone. 

He broke department rules in July when he did not end a pursuit where two police officers drove their cruisers up to 60 mph the wrong direction on the highway, the Courant reported.

Barone was also disciplined for a 2016 incident where he turned off his cruiser’s dashcam during a chase that ended violently, the Courant reported

Four months later, he was promoted to sergeant.

Authorities arrested Kalale on one count of theft of property. Records from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office showed he remained jailed Saturday.
