On Tuesday, police identified the North Carolina pastor accused of urinating on a woman during a Delta flight from Las Vegas to Detroit earlier this month.

The Winston-Salem Journal obtained a copy of the police report naming Daniel Chalmers as the suspect. When the flight landed at Wayne Metro Airport in Detroit on October 12, the police arrested him.

A passenger named Alicia Beverly told police she woke up around 2:45 a.m. to a man standing over. She didn’t initially realize what was happening until she felt her clothes were wet. Beverly alerted the flight crew, and when asked what happened, she screamed, “He peed on me!” The crew moved her to another seat.

When questioned by police, Chalmers initially denied any wrongdoing had occurred.

“Whatever it is she is accusing me of, I didn’t do it,” he said to police. “I’m a pastor, that is out of my character, and I didn’t do it.”

The police report states that the officer questioning him noticed a wet spot on his shorts. The victim’s clothes were covered in urine, as well as the seat she was sitting in on the plane.

Initially, Chalmers denied drinking any alcohol, even though it was evident to authorities that he reeked of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes. He eventually admitted to the police officer that he had taken medication and later admitted to having a few drinks.

An FBI agent issued Chalmers a ticket and released him.

According to the Journal, Chalmers leads the Love Wins Ministries in Raleigh and is a staff member of at Catch the Fire Raleigh-Durham church.

LeBron James Claps Back At Zlatan Ibrahimovic, “I Would Never Shut Up About Things That Are Wrong”

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James clapped back at Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Friday after the footballer criticized him for getting involved in social causes.

In an interview on Thursday, Ibrahimovic said that athletes like James should avoid getting involved in political matters and focus solely on sports.

“I would never shut up about things that are wrong,” James said to reporters following the Lakers’ win over the Portland Trail Blazers. “I preach about my people, and I preach about equality. Social injustice. Racism. Systematic voter suppression. Things that go on in our community.”

“Because I was a part of my community at one point and saw the things that was going on, and I know what’s going on still because I have a group of 300-plus kids at my school that’s going through the same thing, and they need a voice. And I’m their voice,” he added. “I’m their voice, and I use my platform to continue to shed light on everything that may be going on, not only in my community but around this country and around the world.

“So, there’s no way I would ever just stick to sports because I understand how this platform and how powerful my voice is. “

James also pointed out that Ibrahimovic himself once spoke up about experiencing racism over his last name in Sweden. He claimed he was treated differently than other players because he did not have a traditional Swedish last name like Andersson or Svensson. 

“It’s funny because I believe in 2018 he was the same guy who said when he was back in Sweden … because his last name wasn’t a certain last name, that he felt there was some racism going on when he was out on the pitch,” said James. 

“I speak from a very educated mind, so I’m kind of the wrong guy to actually go at because I do my homework.”

An Oklahoma teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave after chastising a 7th-grade student for wearing a “Black King” t-shirt, calling it racist.

According to KFOR, Edmond Public School District officials in Oklahoma met with the teacher on February 25 about the incident, but they have not shared whether or not any disciplinary action will be taken against the educator.

“Edmond Public Schools district administrators met this afternoon… with a Heartland Middle School teacher at the center of a complaint,” Susan Parks-Schlepp, the director of communications for the school district, said in a statement.

“The district recognizes the public’s desire for a quick resolution to this issue. However, it’s important to note that employees have fundamental rights to ensure fairness when they are the subject of a complaint. Those rights include an option for the teacher to respond to and contest any recommended disciplinary action,” Park-Schlepp continued.

The 7th grader, Latrell Taft, claims his teacher abruptly stopped teaching the class to chastise his “Black King” t-shirt, which he was given as a birthday present. The t-shirt included an outline of Africa and allegedly offended the teacher who called it “racist.”

FAA Proposes $27,500 Fine For Passenger Accused Of Hitting Flight Attendants

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wants a civil penalty of nearly $27,500 against a passenger accused of physically striking a flight attendant in the face after being asked to leave the plane.

During an October 2020 flight from Miami to Atlanta, the incident occurred when a verbal altercation turned violent after the flight attendant asked the passenger to disembark because her traveling companion refused to wear his mask.

The agency said the man also refused to follow any direction given to him during the flight, including wearing his seatbelt or returning his tray in the upright position during takeoff.

Once the aircraft returned to its gate in order for the pair to exit, the woman allegedly became belligerent, yelling at passengers and the flight attendant, and eventually struck the attendant in the face, under her left eye.

Federal law prohibits passengers from interfering with aircraft crew or physically assaulting them, or threatening to physically assault anyone on an aircraft.

Any passengers who violate this law are subject to civil penalties for such misconduct, which can threaten the flight’s safety by disrupting or distracting the cabin crew from their responsibilities.

“The FAA is strictly enforcing a zero-tolerance policy toward passengers who cause disturbances on flights or fail to obey flight crew instructions in violation of the FAA’s regulations or engage in conduct proscribed by federal law,” their press release stated.

The FAA did not identify the passengers involved in this incident, but the agency did state that the woman has 30 days to respond to the penalty.
