    The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to immediately intervene in the escalating situation between protesters and law enforcement over construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, the tribe's chairman told NBC News on Sunday night.

    "The DOJ should be enlisted and expected to investigate the overwhelming reports and videos demonstrating clear strong-arm tactics, abuses and unlawful arrests by law enforcement," Chairman Dave Archambault II told NBC News.

    The tribe's request comes after a weekend in which the months-long protest entered a new and more chaotic phase. On Saturday, 127 protesters were arrested on suspicion of criminal trespassing on private property, according to new figures released Sunday by the Morton County Sheriff's Office.

    Gas Leak Forces Evacuations in South Philly: A gas leak forced several people to evacuate their homes in South Philadelphia Sunday afternoon. Officials say a worker in the basement of a house on 10th and Christian streets struck a gas line, causing a leak. At least 19 homes along the block were evacuated as a result. PECO and PGW crews were able to repair the leak and residents were allowed back inside their homes after several hours.


    13 Killed, 31 Injured in Tour Bus Crash: In a horrific early morning crash, a tour bus slammed into the back of a truck on Interstate 10 north of Palm Springs before sunrise Sunday, killing 13 and injuring 31, authorities said. The Riverside County Coroner's office confirmed 13 people aboard the bus were killed, including the driver, in the disastrous crash that shut down the entire westbound 10 Freeway west of Indian Canyon Road. Traffic was being diverted off the freeway at the Indian Avenue offramp. The freeway reopened around 4:30 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. Rescuers continued to search the wreckage for more victims in the early stages of the crash. The first images from the scene showed firefighters using ladders to get into the passenger compartment of the bus, which had been peeled back from the vehicle's undercarriage about one third of its length.


    'Weed World Candies' Truck Catches Fire: A vehicle carrying marijuana-laced candy caught fire on the Delaware Memorial Bridge Sunday, causing lane closures and a massive backup.

    The ongoing fight over who can offer people rides around Philadelphia could come to an end Monday as the Pennsylvania Senate considers legislation to permanently legalize ridesharing services like UberX and Lyft.

    The Pennsylvania House already approved a change to state law that outlines regulations and taxing for the services. 

    Under the amended rules, UberX and Lyft will provide funding to the Philadelphia School District and city -- 1.4 percent of their gross receipts.

    Ridesharing drivers will be subject to licensing and safety standards set by the Philadelphia Parking Authority. The rules will mimic guidelines taxi and limo drivers must follow.

    The app-driven ridesharing services hire everyday people, who use their personal cars, to transport passengers to a destination. Taxi drivers say it's unfair that they pay the PPA high fees for licenses and carry large insurance policies, while UberX and Lyft drivers don't.

    Legalization will end a more than year-long fight over the services.

    The companies have been in and out of court, fighting the PPA to operate. At times, the PPA suspended the battle to ensure there were enough transports for major events like this summer's Democratic National Convention.

    Drivers face heavy fines and impoundment of their vehicles without the PPA's blessing.

    The senate is expected to pass the law change without issue. It approved an earlier version of the legislation last year.

    Bullets narrowly missed a civilian taking a ride in a police cruiser in central California early Sunday morning, when a traffic stop turned into a police chase. 

    Many citizens who want to understand the job of police officers and get a sense of the excitement of the job go on ride-alongs, like the woman in Madera. But her morning was anything but routine after a suspect ended up firing 14 rounds at the patrol car, leaving the passenger scratched by broken glass and crying in fear, but safe, Police Chief Steven Frazier recapped Monday at a news conference. Originally, police had said nine rounds were fired.

    The story, and especially the dashcam video police posted of the shootout and chase, has been seen nearly 1 million times on the department's Facebook page, and made its rounds on the TV morning talk shows, including the "Today" show.

    "By the grace of God," Frazier told reporters, "this officer and this civilian ride-along are with us today."

    Officer Julian Garcia, who was on his second week of the job and spotted a Mazda with a broken headlight, wasn’t injured and the woman on the ride-along suffered minor scratches, Frazier said. She is part of the department's volunteer citizen's academy. She declined to be interviewed or identified.

    Madera is in San Joaquin County near Yosemite National Park.

    The ride-along started off normally on Sunday about 4:30 a.m., police said. Garcia tried to stop a Mazda SUV traveling west on Howard Road because the car had a broken headlight and the driver failed to stop at a stop sign, according to the dashcam video and the chief. 

    "He's not stopping," the woman is heard asking in the video, before a chase ensued.

    When the Mazda turns onto Lighthouse Drive, its front passenger is apparently seen sticking a gun out the window, prompting the officer's passenger to say, "He has a gun! No, no, no, no!"

    Approximately 14 rounds were fired at the police car, Frazier said. The patrol car was struck by three bullets, two of them through the windshield, and the patrol car was disabled. Frazier said that one of the bullets even landed inside someone's home in a pile of laundry.

    The Mazda sped away, and the police cruiser pulled over. "You OK?" the officer is heard asking the woman, who begins sobbing in the car.

    The Mazda was later found abandoned on Krest Street, and police found an AR 15-style pistol and other evidence, which they didn’t detail. Det. Sgt. Johnny Smith told NBC Bay Area there were paper license plates on the car, which was stolen from Fresno.

    Police have not announced any arrests, and the chief said they were looking for at least two suspects.

    Frazier said that he believes this video should be a prerequisite for all ride-along candidates so they can see what officers face day to day. He doesn't think the department will change its ride-along policy in any way, but he expects some citizens might refuse to participate after what happened this weekend.

    "I think what occurred," he said, "is that at any time, any situation can go sideways. And this young lady experienced that."

    The cyber attack that slowed many popular websites to a crawl last week is considered unprecedented in its ability to hit so many Americans, NBC News reported.

    The attack used a new type of malware that takes control of tens of millions of personal devices connected to the internet — including home routers, baby monitors and cameras — without their owners' knowledge.

    The Chief Strategy Officer of the New Hampshire tech company that was targeted by the attack called the attack "absolutely unprecedented."

    "What we discovered [was that] it was a part of an botnet attack called the Mirai botnet, which basically goes into folks' homes and takes over Internet of Things devices and literally turns them into attack vectors," Dyn's Kyle York said.

    Outraged mental health advocates petitioned Walmart to stop selling a "Suicide Scar Wound" makeup kit offered on the retailer's website.

    Walmart, one of the leading retailers in the United States, can be a one-stop shop for Halloween necessities like candy, costumes, and decorations.

    This year the site featured a "Razor Blade Suicide Scar Wound" latex costume makeup kit. The product, according to Walmart, was not something they put up for sale online, but rather a third-party vendor, that Walmart did not identify.

    The title and photo of a razor blade with two bloody slash marks instigated outrage from the community.

    "I would like to know which part of this is a suitable costume for anyone," one person said on Twitter. "Self harm isn't a 'scary costume' for all to wear."

    A group called Revolving of Doors launched a petition.

    "This is not just a disgrace to the sensitivity to those who suffer from self-harm, but a shame on Walmart for making light of the situation," the petition stated.

    "This 'costume' is real life for many people, many people who are contemplating volumes higher than self-harm," the petition added. "Suicide is not a joke, not a costume, and not funny."

    The controversy prompted Walmart to remove the costume from their site over the weekend, telling Facebook followers they too thought it was "unacceptable."

    If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts visit the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or call 1-800-273-8255.

    A man ripped a railing off the staircase outside Philadelphia's historic Union League overnight causing a portion of the stone steps to collapse.

    The theft happened just after 3 a.m. Monday in front of the private club's main entrance along Broad Street at Sansom, club officials said.

    Erica Martin, the Union League's communications director, said the man was spotted pulling the brass railing from the curved stairs on the building's right side.

    The theft caused the large stone banister and several balusters to topple over.

    It was not immediately how the man was able to rip off the railing.

    Martin said the club contacted Philadelphia Police and turned over its surveillance video to assist in the investigation.

    "The steps are severely damaged and roped off for the safety of our members, employees and the public," Martin said in a statement. "We will work to restore the staircase to its original condition as soon as possible."

    The iconic, eight floor brownstone structure was built in 1865 as a home for the political society founded to support U.S. President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War.

    The building was designated a national historic landmark in 1979.

    The Residential Treatment program at a Philadelphia school geared toward students with behavioral challenges and disabilities closed more than a week after a teen died following an altercation with staff members.

    Debbie Albert, a spokeswoman for Wordsworth Academy, located on Ford Road in Philly's Wynnefield Heights section, told NBC10 the school's Residential Treatment program is ceasing operations following notification by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services' Bureau of Human Service Licensing.

    "Wordsworth has a long history in serving youth and families and we remain committed to our mission," Albert wrote in a released statement. "We plan to use this time to improve our Residential Treatment program by enhancing operations, staff training, and our residential facility. The Residential Treatment program currently serves 90 children ranging in age from 10-21, all of whom will be transitioned out to other facilities. All other Wordsworth programs continue to operate."

    A 17-year-old student died on Oct. 13 around 9 p.m. after becoming unresponsive on the 4th floor of Wordsworth Academy. Philadelphia Police refused immediate comment but sources close to the investigation told NBC10 that the student -- who had an iPod that didn't belong to him -- began fighting with staff and became unresponsive as workers restrained him.

    Medical staff and school staff were in the room as staffers administered first aid and called for Philadelphia medics, said sources.

    At no point was the student left alone while unresponsive, said sources.

    "Although we are shocked and saddened by this event, it is an ongoing investigation, and we are unable to comment further at this time," said Albert.

    The school dates back to 1952.

    "The mission of Wordsworth is to provide education, behavioral health and child welfare services to children and youth who are experiencing emotional, behavioral and academic challenges so that they are empowered to reach their potential and lead productive, fulfilling lives," says a message on the school's website.

    Kathleen Kane isn't having a good day.

    As the disgraced former Pennsylvania attorney general sat in a Norristown courtroom Monday afternoon asking a judge to go easy when sentencing her for a perjury conviction, a meter maid hit Kane's car with a parking ticket.

    Well, at least the black Land Rover, she arrived to court in.

    [[398237851, C,640,480]]

    The $28 ticket was issued for an expiring meter at 1:01 p.m. -- about two hours before she was slapped with a 10 to 23 months jail sentence.

    Kane left court in a different black SUV, a Montgomery County police truck, which took her to the county correctional facility in Eagleville for processing.

    If the ticket isn't paid in five days, the fine will increase to $38.

    Editor's Note: We've lost a beloved member of the NBC10 family. Sheela Allen-Stephens passed away at Bryn Mawr hospital last week. Our Chief Meteorologist, Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz was a dear friend for years. He asked to write about the life Sheela shared with us, and so many of you -- her legacy of laughs. Services are public Saturday, Oct. 29 at 1 p.m. at Sharon Baptist Church, 3955 Conshohocken Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa.


    One of a Kind

    She survived breast cancer, three heart attacks, brain surgery, and diabetes.

    She told people that she had more than 25 surgeries in her life.

    She was as happily married as any person I ever saw.

    She would command any room she was in. People just gravitated toward her. And she could entertain them for hours.

    She was the only person I ever heard of who won, time after time, playing video poker at the casinos. No one would believe it -- but I saw it myself.

    She had one of the hardest jobs in TV and did it better than anyone: to make people smile and laugh ("Tragedy is easy; comedy is hard")

    She was afraid of no one. Who else would yell at George Clooney loud enough to get him out of his trailer for an interview? She yelled: "They’ll fire me if I don’t get this interview!"

    And it worked.

    She wore more jewelry at any one time than most women accumulate in their lifetime.

    She asked for everyone’s birth date. And remembered them all.

    She made amazing predictions based on her belief in astrology (and believing she was psychic). Scientists don’t believe in that stuff, of course. But I was speechless after some of her predictions came true.

    She was the most interesting person I ever knew. And the funniest, too.

    And now she’s gone.

    What a Life Story!

    I wish I could remember all of the amazing stories Sheela told about her life, and all the amazing people she met over the years. Many of us were skeptical of some of her stories, and then shocked when we found it was true. Here’s an example…

    Sheela was a very beautiful woman. When she was single, she was sought after by sports stars, celebrities, and wealthy men. One of them, she told me, was a member of the great Motown group, "The Spinners”. We wondered it was more fantasy than fact.

    Years later, Sheela got tickets for us to see a "Spinners" concert in Atlantic City. First row, of course (I figured it was due to her big casino connections). Before the concert, she told me that "Harry" (the name has been changed to protect him) not only dated her, but had proposed to her IN THE MIDDLE OF A LIVE CONCERT. AND SHE YELLED "NO!"

    Now, would you believe that?

    But after the concert, she took us backstage. And right into the "Spinners" dressing room. One of them saw her, yelled: "Sheela!" and gave her a big hug. "Harry" was in another dressing room, and hugged her too, but he wasn’t enthusiastic about it. Decades later, he was still obviously hurt.

    Story After Story After Story

    No one could tell a story like Sheela. We sometimes went to her favorite restaurant, a soul food place called "DeBreaux’s" at the Overbrook train station. It was a tiny place, with only a few tables. Sheela commanded the table in the middle, and would tell story after story. We laughed hysterically. So did the complete strangers who came in the door, who were immediately asked VERY personal questions. And they would answer them! Even if it was related to sex. Then that person would sit down with us, continuing the conversation while waiting for their food.

    I once had a Saturday lunch there that lasted more than FOUR HOURS! And wasn’t bored for a second.

    And Then There Was Lonnie

    Lonnie Stephens was a Philly native (Sheela was from New York City). He was Sheela’s designated photographer for all her stories and live shots. They got married in the 80s, and were together 24 hours a day for about 20 years! And they loved each other so much that they probably wished there were even more hours in the day, so they could be together longer.

    While Sheela had multiple health problems, Lonnie was always in perfect health. And amazingly strong. And always smiling. Always. But, in 2004, he was suddenly diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Lonnie, the love of Sheela's life, died only months later. Of course, Sheela was devastated. And even more than ten years later, she still told everyone: "I’m married -- just to a dead man!"

    After having brain surgery in 2001, Sheela told a reporter at the Philadelphia Inquirer, "I’m a dog person, but everybody keeps saying I’m a cat. I’m on my ninth life here." She managed to keep others entertained for another 15 years.

    Sheela passed away late last week.

    I miss her already.

    Employees at a Philadelphia Checkers restaurant were fired after a Facebook Live video showed them talking about having sex with customers at the restaurant and other unsanitary acts.

    The video was posted over the weekend by workers at the Checkers restaurant on the 7000 block of Stenton Avenue. During the 44-minute long video, one of the employees claims that his co-workers have had sex with customers at the restaurant. At one point he also smokes a cigarette in the kitchen, describes how he sometimes handles the food without using gloves, threatens to spit in the food of customers and talks about “washing the floor with burger buns.”

    The video went viral and sparked outrage on social media.

    “I’m not gonna say it happens in every fast food restaurant but that one in particular, I wouldn’t eat there,” said Tyrell Beckett.

    NBC10 obtained the latest city health inspection report of the Stenton Avenue Checkers. The report showed the restaurant was out of compliance on several cleanliness and hygiene issues.

    NBC10 visited the Checkers Monday but the restaurant was closed and a manager inside would not comment. A spokesperson for Checkers later released a statement to NBC10 saying the employees in the video would be fired and the restaurant would be sanitized and re-inspected.

    “The behavior of these employees does not meet our high standards for food preparation and guest service, and does not represent the thousands of Checkers employees who do an outstanding job every day,” the spokesperson wrote. “As soon as we became aware of the post, we immediately contacted the franchisee, who proactively closed the restaurant late last night. The employees involved will be terminated, the restaurant will be fully sanitized and re-inspected before it reopens, and all of the team members will be fully retrained.”

    One of the employees in the video later spoke with NBC10 and claimed the entire clip was a prank gone wrong and that he made the video to promote his music.

    "It was a joke to get people's attention," he said.

    While he apologized for the video and called it a "dumb decision," he also said he and his employees were only joking about the unsanitary acts and that customers shouldn't worry about cleanliness. Despite his claims he says he was still fired because of the video.

    Four juveniles were arrested in a series of flash mob-style attacks on Temple University's campus this weekend that left students and police officers hurt, police and university officials said.

    Groups of young people, estimated to number between 20 to 100, roved the school's North Philadelphia campus Friday night for nearly two hours causing havoc, authorities said.

    Students were punched and kicked, an officer tossed to the ground and stones were thrown at passing cars, police said. Officers from three agencies — the Philadelphia Police Department, Temple University police and SEPTA police —responded to the incidents.

    As many as six Temple students hurt in the attacks as they walked around campus between 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. that night., along with a university police officer and a Philadelphia police horse. 

    One student, who was not identified, told the college news site The Tab she was walking with her boyfriend near 16th and Oxford streets around 8 p.m. when they were attacked by two kids.

    The student told the news site her boyfriend was able to run away but she was grabbed by the ahir and beaten on her head and back. Her name was not given.

    “I somehow got to the other side of Oxford Street by the time they got me to the ground. I remember shoes coming for my face and after that I heard other kids from the group saying ‘Yo chill, yo chill, it’s just a girl’ and they pulled my attackers off me," she reportedly said.

    Police a 20-year-old man also fell victim to an attack by kids from this group.

    At 9 p.m., a Temple police officer was tossed to the ground, landing on top of her patrol bike, while trying to apprehend a 15-year-old boy who was seen throwing rocks at cars driving along Broad Street, police said.

    The teen was running from officers when he attacked the patrolwoman, police said. She suffered bruises to her leg and a scrape to her knee. The teen was apprehended a block away.

    About 10 minutes later, a 15-year-old teen walked up to an equine officer and punched the animal in the head and face at Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue, police said. The mounted officer had been dispatched to help disperse as many as 100 kids at that corner.

    He was arrested following a short chase.

    Another attack happened about 10 minutes after that, around 9:20 p.m., along the 1700 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue. Three teens, an 18-year-old girl and two 19-year-old boys, were beaten down by as many as 30 young people, police said.

    The girl suffered scrapes and cuts to her legs. Her cellphone was smashed and debit card stolen. Between the boys, an iPhone, wallet, backpack and Bluetooth wireless speaker was taken, according to police.

    The suspects in this attack have not yet been arrested.

    In all, as many as 50 juveniles were taken into custody and four — ranging in age from 15 to 17 years old — were charged with crimes. The charges include aggravated assault, robbery and assaulting a police officer.

    Temple spokesman Ray Betzner said Friday the juveniles played a "cat-and-mouse game" with officers. A campus alert warning students and staff was sent around 9:30 p.m.

    Joe Lauletta, the father of one of the apparent victims, posted an angry message to Facebook about his daughter's attack.

    He said the youth who attacked his daughter "held her down and kicked and stomped on her repeatedly," referring to the attackers as "sick animals." The attack landed her in the hospital, he added.

    NBC10 reached out to Lauletta for an interview.

    Lauletta said his daughter and two male friends were exiting the subway, coming home from the Temple football game when they were beaten.

    Philadelphia police, Temple police and the university are all investigating the incidents.
