Question of the Day
‘Dr. Phil’ show leads to abuse charge
ANCHORAGE | An Alaska woman is charged with child abuse because of a “Dr. Phil” TV show appearance that featured video of her disciplining a 7-year-old son by apparently putting hot sauce in his mouth and forcing him into a cold shower.
The Anchorage Daily News reported that neither the child nor five other children in the home have been removed by the Office of Children’s Services. Mrs. Beagley’s husband, Gary, is a police officer. A spokesman said he is not under investigation.
The case has attracted the attention of Russian media because the boy and his twin brother were adopted from Russia when they were 5 years old.
Man, 63, arrested outside mosque
DETROIT | A Southern California man who had explosives in his vehicle was arrested outside one of the nation’s largest mosques in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, authorities in Michigan said.
Dearborn police said Roger Stockham, 63, was arraigned last week on one count of allegedly making a false report or threat of terrorism and one count of possessing explosives with an unlawful intent.
Mr. Stockham had a large but undisclosed quantity of class-C fireworks including M-80s, which are outlawed in Michigan, Chief Ronald Haddad said.
“I was comfortable with the fact that we had taken him off the street — he isn’t going anywhere,” Chief Haddad told the Associated Press on Sunday afternoon. “I think the society he wanted to impact is safe.”
Mr. Stockham remained jailed Sunday on a $500,000 bond. A preliminary examination is scheduled for Friday. The Detroit area has one of the largest concentrations of ethnic Arabs in the U.S., with the heaviest centering on Dearborn, about 10 miles west of Detroit.
The chief explained that the arrest last Monday night outside the Islamic Center of America was not immediately publicized — though mosque leaders were told — in order not to encourage copycats.
