  • After a disturbing video of a fight in Moncrief went viral, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has made three arrests.   Jacksonville police initially announced the arrest of Jontaianna Pitts, 18, on Saturday.   Pitts is accused of beating a woman at a park and then attacking a security guard when he tried to step in.   A short time later, she allegedly hit at least two people with a baseball bat, as they were laying on the ground. She went on to kick one of the victim's cars and smashed the windshield.   The arrest report for Pitts reveals she was already wanted by police on an unrelated battery warrant.   JSO announced two additional arrests Monday afternoon.   Zakeria Johnson, 24, is accused of repeatedly striking a victim with closed fists as the victim was on the ground.   Meanwhile, Ronetta Wright, 21, is also accused of repeatedly striking a victim with closed fists and then repeatedly hitting a second victim with closed fists and kicking the victim in the head three times while she was on the ground.   JSO says the investigation is still ongoing.
  • Videos posted online help Jacksonville police make an arrest in connection to fights at a local park. JSO first responded to Simonds-Johnson Park on Moncrief Road Friday night, after being alerted through social media to videos showing a fight taking place. Police say the suspect, 18-year-old Jontaianna Pitts, was seen on the videos fighting with another woman, including hitting her with a closed first while the victim tried to defend herself but didn’t fight back.  The video further shows a uniformed security guard intervene, but Pitts repeatedly hit him as he tried to stop the fight, according to JSO.  VIDEO: Fight at Jacksonville park caught on camera, posted on social media About 90 minutes later, JSO says a larger fight broke out at the same location involving the same people. More videos- including some which were broadcast on Facebook Live- show Pitts hitting two people several times in the head and body with a baseball bat, while the victims were laying on the ground, according to JSO. They have been hospitalized. Police further say Pitts then used the baseball bat on a vehicle where another victim was hiding inside, including smashing the windshield and denting the hood. The victim in that car was eventually able to get out of the car and to flee on foot.  Pitts was located Saturday night and arrested for aggravated battery, felony battery on a security guard, and criminal mischief.  JSO says the investigation is still active at this time. They’re thanking the community for the tips and information submitted in connection to this case, which they say helped quickly lead to this arrest.
  • A flea market find in England 30 years ago has turned into the stuff dreams are made of. A woman paid the equivalent of $15 for a piece of costume jewelry three decades ago, or so she thought, but she liked the ring and wore it all the time, The Associated Press reported. >> Read more trending news It turns out the gem was the real deal, a 26.27 carat white diamond, according to Sotheby’s. The auction house is selling the ring next month as part of jewelry sale and expects the ring to sell for as much as $450,000. Not bad for a $15 investment. The buyer apparently had no idea the ring was real because 19th century diamonds were cut very differently from today. The cut did not show off the stone’s clarity or brilliance. The owners asked not to be identified.

  • President Donald Trump will propose a more than 25 percent cut to food stamp funding in a budget proposal expected Tuesday, according to a report. >> Read more trending news The president will propose $193 billion worth of cuts over the next decade from the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, formerly known as the food stamp program, The Associated Press reported, citing talking points circulated by the White House. The program currently serves about 42 million people, according to numbers released in February by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The cuts would drive millions of people off food stamps through changes in eligibility guidelines and the implementation of additional work requirements, according to The AP. SNAP’s current work requirement is aimed at cutting benefits to the “most able-bodied adults who don’t have children,” The Washington Post reported. About 44 million people spread across 21 million households got benefits through SNAP last year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Officials said participants got an average of $125 per month, while households got an average of $258. The program cost $70.9 billion in 2016. Trump’s budget proposal is also expected to include large cuts to Medicaid, federal employee pensions, welfare benefits and farm subsidies.
