NEW YORK (AP) - While conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos insulted comics Lena Dunham, Leslie Jones, Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman, his appearance on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" was relatively tame - at least until the cameras were turned off. It was later, during an online-only "Overtime" segment of ...

Lorain police officer suspended after handling of stabbing arrest
Lorain Police Officer Christopher Ferenzi was suspended without pay for the handling of stabbing suspect Jared Brillon in November 2015. Watch video LORAIN, Ohio - A Lorain police officer has been suspended without pay for the way he dealt with a man charged in a stabbing at his ex-girlfriend's home. Officer Christopher Ferenzi received a 10-day suspension for cursing at and making inappropriate remarks toward Jared Brillon, who is involved with Ferenzi's ex-girlfriend, during Brillion's arrest on Nov. 15, 2015, police said in a news release. Ferenzi also struck Brillon's cheek with his hand, which contained a small flashlight, but Brillon did not suffer a visible injury. Brillon never filed a complaint against Ferenzi, police said. Brillon, 38, of Lorain, is charged with felonious assault in the incident. His trial is ongoing, according to court records. The Lorain Police Department released video of Brillon's arrest on Wednesday. The video has been included at the top of this post. Warning: The video contains profane language. Ferenzi, who has been with the department for eight years, went to an East Erie home at 9:20 p.m. for a report of a "woman screaming for help." Ferenzi knew the address because it belonged to an ex-girlfriend who is the mother of his son, police said. Two other men tried to help the ex-girlfriend before Ferenzi arrived. But Brillon repeatedly stabbed one of those men, police said. Ferenzi was noticeably upset and checked on his son before he arrested Brillon and took him to his police cruiser. "While it may be understandable that Officer Ferenzi was upset regarding the presence of his son during an extremely violent confrontation, it does not excuse his actions during this incident," Lorain police said in a news release. The Lorain Police Department referred the matter to the city's Employee Review Board, which concluded in a Nov. 10 report that Ferenzi violated the police department's standards of conduct. Lorain police Chief Cel Rivera adopted the board's disciplinary recommendation on Nov. 14 and Director of Public Safety and Service Dan Given suspended Ferenzi on Nov. 15. This is the second time in two months that the Lorain Police Department has addressed accusations of officer misconduct. A dash cam video showing an officer forcefully pushing a man onto the hood of a police car during a Sept. 4, 2014 arrest is at the center of an excessive force lawsuit filed against the department.
