LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California officer faces insurance fraud charges after authorities say a video showed her participating in an ice-bucket challenge despite claiming she had a back injury.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say a video posted online in July showed Pasadena police officer Jaime Robison pick up a 5-gallon bucket of ice water and pour it over a fellow officer while she was receiving disability benefits.
The case also alleges the 39-year-old Robison exaggerated injuries in 2012 to receive disability pay.
Robison pleaded not guilty Friday to four counts of insurance fraud. She is scheduled to return to court June 10.
If convicted, she could face up to six years and four months in jail.
BERLIN (AP) — German authorities say they found violent Islamic extremist videos on a computer belong to a couple suspected of preparing an attack on a cycling race.
Udo Buehler, a spokesman for the criminal police office in Hesse state, declined to give details of the videos found at the home of the couple in Oberursel, near Frankfurt.
The couple, who haven’t been identified, were arrested Thursday. Police seized a cache of weapons, including a pipe bomb and chemicals that can be used to make explosives. Officials believe they may have planned to target a professional cycling race in the area Friday — the race was canceled.
Buehler said Saturday that investigators are still going through evidence and working to determine whether the Turkish-German man and his Turkish wife had any accomplices.
