It’s unclear exactly what he told authorities, but they promptly searched the area and determined that no one else was injured. The victim was rushed off to the hospital while the police started investigating. It wasn’t long before the police found the weapon used in the crime. Not only was the firearm illegal and unregistered, but it appeared to belong to the victim himself.

Wife of Infamous El Chapo Arrested for Trafficking Drugs

SUSPECT: Emma Coronel Aispuro

CHARGES: conspiracy to distribute cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine in the US, conspiracy to import drugs

DATE OF ARREST: February 22

THE DETAILS: The notorious drug runner “El Chapo” was arrested a few years ago, but now his wife has been apprehended for continuing her husband’s illegal schemes. According to police, Emma Aispuro, El Chapo’s wife, was taken into custody in Virginia on Monday. The police say Aispuro was plotting to import and traffic a significant amount of illegal substances in the United States. Aispuro is a dual citizen of both the US and Mexico, and authorities have suspected that she played a major role in El Chapo’s drug running schemes for years. Now, they’ve finally produced evidence to prove their suspicions. While formal charges on this matter have not yet been issued, authorities also suspect that Aispuro helped El Chapo escape from jail through an underground tunnel in 2015. If they can find the evidence, it’s likely she’ll also face aiding and abetting charges on top of her current drug charges.

CHARGES: First-degree assault of a police officer, resisting arrest, attempted murder

DATE OF ARREST: February 23

THE DETAILS: At around 12:30 A.M. on Tuesday, police officers in Hawaii were conducting a routine traffic stop in Wailuku.

Before long, he realized the driver had multiple warrants for his arrest. That’s when the officer decided to ask the driver to step out of his vehicle. Suddenly, Lapenia-Lau slammed his car door shut and slammed on his gas. One police officer was dragged along the roadway for a few feet before the suspect fled away. Authorities promptly began searching for the suspect, and they finally caught up with him hours later at around 9 A.M. While it remains unclear what happened next, at least two officers opened fire in the Mill Street area. The suspect was uninjured until he smashed open a window to a nearby residence and took shelter inside. Authorities caught up with him, and he was promptly taken into custody. Both officers who opened fire are currently being investigated. They’ve both been put on administrative leave with pay.

Woman Attempts to Use Uber as Getaway Car After Smashing Into Store

SUSPECT: Sharon Martinez

CHARGES: Leaving the scene of an accident with property damage

DATE OF ARREST: February 24

THE DETAILS: Just after midnight on Tuesday, a woman was spotted smashing into a store in South Beach. According to one witness, the woman almost hit a pedestrian before slamming into the store. The victim, who was later identified as homeless, was unharmed. The woman driver emerged from her car unhurt and dressed in a very noticeable ball gown and heels. Rather than call the police, authorities say the woman casually left the scene of the accident and called an Uber for transportation. As the Uber made its way to the suspect, a crowd of angry individuals surrounded her and promptly called police. Unfortunately, the Uber driver showed up before the police. Sharon Martinez was seen hopping into the Uber car and casually getting away. Thankfully, authorities arrived shortly later and promptly found a witness with video footage of the incident. They tracked down the Uber car as it was transporting the woman, and both individuals in the car were arrested. Police say the driver knew about the accident and helped her leave, so he’s currently getting charged with accessory after the fact. Sharon Martinez, on the other hand, is getting charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
