A Florida sheriff’s lieutenant was suspended after his son used the lieutenant’s unmarked patrol car to harass his former girlfriend, the sheriff’s office announced Friday. 

>> Read more trending news

According to an internal-affairs report, Lt. David Combs of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was found to be in violation of department policies after he admitted to allowing his son, then-sheriff’s cadet Christopher Combs, to use the patrol car.

Christopher Combs, 23, was arrested by Broward County sheriff’s deputies in October 2017 after he allegedly used the patrol car to pull over his ex-girlfriend’s car. He was fired from his cadet position after his arrest. 

David Combs was suspended for 40 hours in December and he permanently lost the use of a take-home vehicle, the sheriff’s office said. 

According to the report, Combs told investigators he allowed his son to take the car and fill it with gas. Combs said his son was required to seek permission before taking the car and was not allowed to use it for personal business. 

According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Christopher Combs followed his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend as they were leaving a lake in the Pompano Beach area. 

Combs activated the car’s emergency lights and pulled the couple’s vehicle over. He made his girlfriend’s new boyfriend walk to the patrol car with his hands up and lie on the ground. 

A passenger seated in the patrol car got out and removed the man’s belongings, authorities said.

Combs was charged with robbery, impersonating a police officer and false imprisonment. His case is still awaiting trial, court records show.

Mississippi College students sleep outside to raise awareness about homeless

Some college students from Mississippi wanted to raise awareness about homeless people, so they spent a recent night outside, sleeping in cardboard boxes, WAPT reported.

“People don’t realize how many homeless people there are and exactly what they go through on a daily basis,” Mississippi College student Jessica Flemmings said. “It’s important for us to bring awareness to that, to hopefully eliminate the number of homeless.”

The students’ goal was to spend 24 hours camping outdoors. It was done as a way to observe March as Social Work Awareness Month, WAPT reported.

“We have not been able to eat unless food has been donated to us, which we have had success with, so we have not gone hungry, but it has been very cold,” Mississippi College student Paige Alcala said.

Congress approves $450,000 for Wright brothers factory buildings 

The National Park Service will have $450,000 to buy two historic buildings at the former Wright Co. airplane factory site in West Dayton, Ohio, under a $1.3 trillion federal omnibus spending bill President Donald Trump signed Friday.

>> Read more trending news

But the years-long quest to buy buildings 1 and 2, the first factory in the world to produce airplanes, is anything but over, officials said.

“It’s a small, positive step in a long, difficult march,” said Timothy Gaffney, a National Aviation Heritage Alliance spokesman.

The Park Service and the National Aviation Heritage Alliance have coveted the buildings in the hope the public would be able to see the site as part of the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park.

Kendell Thompson, the park’s acting superintendent, said Friday he was waiting to determine what the next step is in the process.

The historic buildings are part of a 54-acre parcel, site of the former Delphi Home Avenue plant, that has been put on the commercial market. 

A previous plan to buy the entire site was scaled back, according to Tony Sculimbrene, executive director of the National Aviation Heritage Alliance, who has spent years in negotiations on the future of the historic location.

The complexity of negotiations has been complicated by former owner Delphi’s past bankruptcy, land covenants and environmental liability concerns, Sculimbrene said. Former auto parts production buildings were demolished and the site has been environmentally investigated and remediated under a $3 million Clean Ohio grant, officials said.

Hull & Associates/Home Avenue Redevelopment LLC purchased the site in 2012 with the intent to remediate environmental issues and sell it. The property is for sale on the commercial market.

Brad White, a managing partner of Home Avenue Redevelopment LLC, said the $450,000 appropriation was “good news” because the intent over the years was to sell the historic buildings to the National Park Service.

David Lotterer, vice president of commercial real estate broker JLL, which is marketing the property, declined comment Friday.

While the park service has eyed the two historic buildings, Dayton Metro Library’s  plan to build a $10 million branch library on about 7½ acres on the site has stalled because officials have not been able to reach a deal, the Dayton Daily News reported this month.

Dayton Metro Library executive director Tim Kambitsch said earlier this month the library did not want to move to the site on its own because of concerns incompatible uses might move in nearby, and it did not want to pay more than the property was valued.

NAHA’s long-term vision for the property would bring commercial and “complimentary” industrial redevelopment, such as advanced manufacturing, to the former factory site, Gaffney said.

Orville and Wilbur Wright’s airplane factory built 100 airplanes between 1910 and 1911. General Motors and later Delphi acquired the property, and built new factories to manufacture auto parts for decades. The Delphi plant was demolished in 2013.

Garth also gave Emma and the rest of the marchers some advice on how to deal with those who oppose their efforts.

“Just remember when you march, you have a voice, and you’re representing yourself when you march,” Garth said. “So, how you march is so important. Be patient. Be loving, because there might be some cross voices that enter in this march. Be tolerant. Be loving. Do not let hate win.”

Garth also told Emma that she wasn’t just marching for herself and her friends who were lost in the Stoneman Douglas school shooting last month in Parkland, Florida. She’s also marching for the generations to come.

Garth explains, “Try to remember this — in the blink of an eye, you’re walking for your children that you haven’t had yet. Because this is something new. Your generation is the generation for the school shootings. Let’s make sure the next generation is not. Fair enough?”

After that, Garth performed a song he’s never released that fit in perfectly with his message for Emma and her fellow marchers. Garth got visibly emotional as he sang the lyrics about working for positive change for future generations.
