Julian Edelman Reveals ‘Beef’ With Tom Brady, Picks Against Buccaneers As Repeat Super Bowl Champions – CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) — Is there trouble in paradise for Foxboro’s former favorite duo?

Probably not. But for perhaps the first time in history, Julian Edelman has displayed a lack of trust in Tom Brady.

Edelman was asked on this week’s “Inside The NFL” on Paramount+ if the Buccaneers will repeat as Super Bowl champions. Edelman at first evaded the question, stating that the Bucs “definitely have a shot to repeat.” When pressed by host Amanda Guerra to answer the actual question, Edelman had to make the painful choice to bet against his bubs.

“Nah, I don’t think they’re gonna repeat this year,” Edelman said. “I mean, I think the team is getting depleted right now.”

Edelman pointed out that the loss of Chris Godwin for the year was a huge one. That prompted co-host Brandon Marshall to ask once again if Edelman has received any phone calls from Brady about joining the Bucs. It was then that Edelman suggested that things aren’t all rosy between him and Brady at the moment.

“Nah, Tom hasn’t called me. And in fact, you know … we have a little beef right now,” Edelman said.

The rest of the panel obviously wanted the details, but Edelman wouldn’t indulge, aside from coyly saying something about being unable to “kiss and tell.”

“We’ll leave it between us. But we have a beef right now,” Edelman said. “I can’t [share what it’s about.] I can’t kiss and tell! I can’t kiss and tell, like someone said.”

Edelman stared directly into the camera while trying to hold a straight face while delivering that line, seemingly saying all that needs to be said to Brady.

Edelman has of course not been shy about much of anything in his first year as an NFL analyst. And considering his long and successful relationship with Brady, the quarterback has obviously come up once or twice or 600 times in his commentary. Perhaps Edelman shared a little too much for Tom’s liking at some point.

Whatever it might have been, it feels safe to assume the two can work out their differences. And if Brady does become the first repeat Super Bowl champ since he and the Patriots did it in 2003 and 2004? Brady just might be clipping this latest video and sending it to Julian from the winning locker room.

Accused In Wilton Manors Hit-&-Run That Killed 2 Children, Sean Greer Causes Court Disturbance – CBS Miami

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The man charged in a deadly hit and run crash in Wilton Manors that struck six children, killing two, made his first court appearance on Wednesday.

Sean Charles Greer, 27, faces a number of charges including tampering with evidence, failing to stop in an accident involving death, failing to stop in an accident involving serious injury, failing to remain at an accident involving death, failing to remain at an accident involving serious injury, driving with a suspended license that caused a death or serious injury, and probation violation.

Greer’s license was suspended in 2016.

During his court appearance, he was given a “no bond hold” because of two probation violations. He caused a bit of a disturbance, knocked over a podium, and was led away by deputies.

“We seem to have lost him for a moment,” Judge Joseph Murphy said during the video hearing.

A bailiff can be heard saying, “Your honor he stepped away. He didn’t want to come back before the judge.”

Using a bumper left behind after the crash and a partial VIN, investigators said they found Greer’s damaged 2009 Honda Accord Parked at his girlfriend’s home around the corner from the crash scene.

Greer told her not to tell the police who the car belonged to if they asked, according to his arrest report.

Detectives said during questioning Greer confessed to his involvement.

“If he had done the right thing and just stopped and rendered aid, he perhaps would have been in violation of his probation. He certainly would have been in violation of driving without a drivers license, but he wouldn’t be facing the more serious charge here that involves leaving the scene of an accident where someone is injured or where someone has died,” explained David Weinsten, a partner at Jones Walker LLP and a former state and federal prosecutor. He offered his insight to CBS 4.

“That’s the most serious charge pending against him right now, and one for which he faces up to 30 years in jail, and for each of the individuals who have died, a four year minimum mandatory sentence,” he continued. “That’s not to say those are the only charges that will be filed. After police complete their investigation, they will, perhaps, add a vehicular homicide charge to this matter.”

Witnesses described a horrible scene that unfolded on Monday afternoon when a driver attempted to speed around a county bus near the 2400 block NW 9 Avenue.

“I don’t know if he couldn’t control the car, but he drove straight into those kids,” recounted Broward Transit driver Selvin Arjun.

He had stopped the bus and dropped off two people.

As the bus pulled out to continue southbound the Honda approached the bus from behind. The driver failed to allow the bus to merge and passed it.

The Honda then veered right and drove off the road and onto the sidewalk, striking the children. It then fled the area.

Rhome Orismo saw it happen.

“I stood right up as soon as I witnessed the crash, witnessed the impact,” he said. “It’s still eating away at me now that someone would do something like that and not stop, not try to render aid to those children.”

Andrea Fleming, 6, and Kylie Jones, 5, died at the scene. Draya Fleming, Laziyah Stokes, Johnathan Carter, and Audre Fleming were transported to Broward Health Medical Center. Two children remain in critical condition, one in fair condition, and one was released.

“A lady was out here hollering and screaming at my car, and I came out and thought something was wrong,” said neighbor Freddie Pinckney. “She was saying that was her baby that got killed in the accident.”

One person who lives in the area said speed has long been a problem on that road.

“It’s a busy highway. What do we to do to prevent this from happening to any more of the kids?” she said.

She said her Christmas wishes have turned to condolences, as she remembered the last thing she said to one of the little girls.

“I had said ‘Merry Christmas and have a safe New Year.’ And look. In a wink, anything can happen.”

Upper Chesapeake Medical Center Declares ‘Hospital Disaster,’ Shifts To Crisis Protocols – CBS Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health on Friday declared a hospital disaster at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, citing a recent explosion in COVID-19 patients.

The health system said it’s shifting to crisis standards of care protocols at the Bel Air hospital to keep up with the demand for care after the hospital saw COVID-19 cases increase by 733% over the past four weeks.

“This is a critical response to a dynamic situation, is not a decision we made lightly and is one that was made after exhausting all other avenues to address issues that are challenging our operations,” Chief Medical Officer Dr. Fermin Barrueto said.

The extraordinary measure comes as the health system has seen infections at UCMC and UM Harford Memorial in Havre de Grace rise by 458% in the past month.

“We have seen an unprecedented surge in our COVID volume,” Dr. Barrueto told WJZ.

Once Maryland reached 1,500 COVID-19 patients Thursday, hospitals statewide were directed to launch their pandemic plans, which involve maximizing bed space to make room for a potential surge of patients.

Implementing crisis protocols is intended to help the hospital managing a surge of patients. The shift might include adjusting surgical schedules to prioritize those most in need, pivoting staff and simplifying documentation.

“It allows us to continue to stretch our staff,” Barrueto said. “It allows us to use unconventional staff to be able to support our nurses. It also helps us set expectations for the community that it is not business as usual.”

As of Friday, there were 74 COVID-19 patients between the two hospitals, which Barrueto said are also dealing with staffing shortages.

“We have a very weary staff after battling this bug for two years,” he said. “On top of that, we’re asking them to do more or give longer hours, to work on the holidays and weekends. It has been a challenge and it has been a marathon.”

Other hospitals are struggling, too. In Baltimore, health leaders said this week that hospitals are nearing capacity and hospitalizations are up 185% over the past month.

Gov. Larry Hogan said Tuesday he expects the number of hospitalizations to surpass the 2,000-mark soon.

“While we do expect that to peak in mid to late January, that is typically around when we also have the peak of the flu season, causing additional strain on our healthcare system,” the governor said.

Lyle Sheldon, the president and chief executive officer for UM Upper Chesapeake Health, said the health system is doing everything in its power to support its workforce in light of the toll they’ve taken during the pandemic.

“Our team members at UM Harford Memorial Hospital (UM HMH) are similarly impacted and stretched to near-crisis levels. We are monitoring that situation very carefully to take the same action if appropriate,” Sheldon said.

Dr. David Marcozzi, professor of medicine for the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the UMMS COVID-19 incident commander, said all UMMS hospitals are working to scale back the number of surgeries they’re performing by 20%.

“While UM UCH may be the first in Maryland to formally implement [Crisis Standards of Care protocols], they will not be the last,” Dr. Marcozzi said.

Suspected Serial Killer Willy Suarez Maceo Arrested – CBS Miami

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Police Department has announced the arrest of a suspected serial killer.

At a press conference Thursday evening, Interim Police Chief Manuel Morales, joined by Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, identified the man as 25-year-old Willy Suarez Maceo.

According to Morales, the dots began to connect on Tuesday when a witness flagged down officer area 400 SW 2 Avenue at 8 p.m. about a person suffering from blunt force trauma to the head.

Further investigation revealed the victim was suffering from a gunshot wound. That victim is in extreme critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Nearly two hours later, another victim was found dead from a gunshot wound in the area of Miami Avenue and 21 Street.

Morales said detectives connected the two incidents because of the short time span and the fact both victims were homeless.

The department’s criminal investigations unit began scouring the area for physical and electronic evidence.

Video on Miami Avenue captured a black vehicle driving up to one of the victims, who was lying down on ground, and shooting him several times.

Officers were able to make out the type of vehicle and the tag number from the surveillance video.

Tactical robbery units later made contact with vehicle and the suspect, who was in possession of firearm that matched the caliber used in both crimes.

Morales said the department’s federal partners helped matched the ballistics from the two incidents.

The suspect was then taken to the station for further investigation.

It was at the station, Morales said, that a lead investigator noticed the suspect’s resemble to one wanted for a murder back on October 16.

In that case, a homeless victim was horrifically murdered in the Miami Avenue and 1 Street.

Morales is pleading for the public’s help to help connect the December 21 crimes with the one from October.

He also asked that local law enforcement agencies share any crimes with similarities on the off chance they’re also connected.

Morales said Suarez Maceo will be charged with murder as well as attempted murder for the crimes committed Tuesday.

The details surrounding Suarez Maceo’s alleged crimes drew reaction from Ron Book, chair of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust.

“This tragic news cuts to the heart of our community,” said Book in a statement. “No one should be the victim of gun violence let alone our most vulnerable, those experiencing homelessness.
