A Philadelphia police officer has been suspended after an internal investigation of a questionable arrest caught on video. Police Commissioner Richard Ross has suspended 26-year-old James Yeager for 30 days with the intent to dismiss. He is a 4 year veteran assigned to the 24th district. The incident happened on July 10th around midnight on the 200 block of East Elkhart Street in Kensington. Officers were trying to arrest a 21-year-old man during a narcotics investigation. The man was resisting arrest and swinging his arms and legs. Cell phone video captured Officer Yeager in full uniform pick the man up and slam him onto the ground. Other video showed him pick the man up and swing him around causing his head to strike an above ground pool. The man was taken to Temple University Hospital in critical condition. He was identified by neighbors as a homeless man name Kevin Rovila. Watch the video below.

A Bucks County nurse has pled guilty to secretly videotaping female patients without their knowledge while they were undressed during medical procedures. 45-year-old James Close of Abington worked at Penn Medicine Dermatology in Yardley. In February, a 17-year-old patient noticed Close's cell phone on the floor during one of her treatments. Police found 18 different videos on the phone of seven different women, the oldest being in her 60's. He was initially charged on 48 counts, including sexual abuse of children, endangering the welfare of a child, and invasion of privacy. Sentencing will be held in 90 days pending a sex-offender evaluation.

New Jersey authorities have charged two young men in the death of a woman shot in her New Jersey farmhouse. 20-year-old Tyler Dralle of Vineland, NJ, and a 17-year-old boy from New Castle, DE, have been charged with the murder of 45-year-old Deanna Scordo. It happened on June 25th on the 700 block of Baridmore Avenue in Winslow Township, Camden County. Around around 3:50 a.m., Scordo's father told 911 that two men wearing hoods broke into the farmhouse and shot his daughter. She died at the scene. Following tips, police were led to the two suspects. Dralle was arrested on Monday and is in Camden County Jail. The Delaware teen was arrested on Wednesday. Police say the motive for the shooting was robbery.
