It’s not a gun problem, it’s a criminal problem.
A Wilmington couple is facing criminal charges after a woman showed a gun at a local restaurant over a wrong order of chicken wings.
Clarissa Gagum, 24, and her husband, Rasheem Gagum, 24, were both arrested Thursday after Clarissa became upset that her order of chicken wings was wrong and pulled out a gun inside the restaurant.
According to officials, the incident happened at the FU Wangz located in the 2100 block of Carolina Beach Road.
Linda Rawley, spokesperson for the WPD, said Clarissa walked into the restaurant and ordered bone-in chicken wings, but received boneless wings.
Clarissa reportedly began to argue with the clerk, then grabbed a gun from her car and went back inside the restaurant waving it around.
Police were called to the scene and found Clarissa on the sidewalk outside the restaurant still holding the gun.
If they’re saying ‘watch fraudulent charges’, sounds like maybe it involves identity theft.

Thousands of New Yorkers are being discreetly informed by NYPD detectives that their names have appeared on a list of “potential targets,” possibly compiled by terrorists, authorities confirmed to FoxNews.com.
NYPD officials confirmed the existence of the list of more than 3,000 names, but did not elaborate on how it was formulated or the process of contacting subjects. A Brooklyn woman who told FoxNews.com she was approached by two plainclothes detectives Wednesday and said they told her that her name was on the list, referred to a notecard and advised her to watch for fraudulent charges on her credit cards and other irregular transactions, she said.
Sources told FoxNews.com the NYPD was working with the FBI after the list was discovered, with the police doing the legwork.
PayPal can take the initiative and install a gender neutral bathroom in their building without a government directive. Update to this previous story.
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory bashed the Internet payment company PayPal in an interview Thursday for scaling back its expansion in the Tar Heel State.
“The selective hypocrisy is outrageous by PayPal when they’re doing business and have headquarters in Singapore, where you can get arrested for chewing gum in public,” the Republican governor told Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
The first-term governor has taken heat from a number of corporations over the past few weeks after he signed into law a bill that requires individuals to use the gender-specific public restroom determined on his or her birth certificate.
Kelly chimed in, mentioning PayPal does business in Saudi Arabia, which kills people who are admittedly gay.
“This is where the corporate elite have to be very careful about getting involved in politics,” McCrory explained. “It’s inconsistent outrage, its selective outrage and they might need to examine their own practices in other states which have the exact same rules as North Carolina does.”

Laremy Tunsil’s draft day saga has gone mainstream enough that politicians are officially weighing in. Well, at least one politician: New Jersey governor Chris Christie, a noted Cowboys and NFL fan.
On Friday morning, Christie was a guest host on CBS Sports’ Boomer & Carton. As you can watch in the video above, Christie and Craig Carton wasted no time diving into the NFL Draft. After briefly discussing the Cowboys’ selection of Ezekiel Elliott — Christie approved of the move — they turned their attention to Tunsil, who experienced a dramatic fall down draft boards on Thursday night before the Dolphins scooped him up in the middle of the first round.
That’s because his Twitter and Instagram accounts were both hacked. A video on Twitter showed Tunsil using a gas mask to smoke marijuana while a photo was posted to his Instagram page that seemed to indicate Tunsil was taking money from a coach to help his mom pay for electricity and water.
“It’s unbelievable,” Christie said. “Because the bong hits aren’t enough. Give me the gas mask too … It’s incredible. I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s unbelievable.”
Though the night took an unfortunate turn for Tunsil, he’s at least lucky that Christie isn’t a prosecutor.
“When I was a prosecutor, I would’ve gone in and cuffed this guy,” Christie said. “I would’ve been all over it.”
CNN is Johnny on the spot for airplane stories.
A Russian SU-27 conducted a “barrel roll” Friday over the top of a U.S. Air Force RC-135 which was flying a reconnaissance mission in international airspace above the Baltic Sea, the Defense Department said.
The Russian SU-27 approached alongside within 25 feet of the U.S. aircraft and then flew inverted over the top of the plane to the other side, Lt. Col. Michelle L. Baldanza, a U.S. Army spokesperson, said in a statement.
“The SU-27 intercepted the U.S. aircraft flying a routine route at high rate of speed from the side then proceeded to perform an aggressive maneuver that posed a threat to the safety of the U.S. aircrew in the RC-135,” Baldanza said.
The U.S. considers this a very unsafe aerial maneuver and is expected to voice its concerns to the Russians, a U.S. defense official told CNN.
His home schooling should include a weekly trip to the range.
An 11-year-old boy who was home alone shot and injured a burglar, causing the suspect to “cry like a little baby.”
WVTM reported that it happened Wednesday morning after somebody broke inside a home in Talladega, Alabama.
Chris Gaither, 11, heard a noise and grabbed a nine-millimeter hand gun.
“When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” Gaither said.
The boy started firing at the suspect, who made it out the front door with a hamper in his hand.
“I shot through the hamper he was carrying,” Gaither said. “It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby.”
Bob Knight’s big endorsement of Donald Trump started with a phone call–one that Knight himself initiated, reaching out to Trump several weeks ago, the legendary coach tells TIME.
Knight says he told a mutual friend in New York that he’d like to talk to Trump, who he had never met. They connected on the phone. “I just told him I thought that we needed him,” says Knight. “That right now, in this moment in time, he was the man who should be in charge. He should be the guy that can get us back to where we want to be.”
According to Knight, Trump responded: “Coach, I know exactly how I want you involved. And when the time comes, I will give you a call and we’ll go from there.”
With Donald Trump’s path to the nomination looking wider by the day, a number of top Republicans are signaling their willingness to support his candidacy — even some who have fiercely criticized him in the past.
This softening opposition indicates that the GOP establishment is reaching the “acceptance stage” of the grieving process, even as Sen. Ted Cruz and his new running mate Carly Fiorina try to mount a last stand in Indiana.
The shift reflects the intensity of loathing for Cruz among elements of the party as much as it does their begrudging acceptance of Trump. The firebrand conservative has failed to secure significant support from his colleagues in Washington even after emerging as the leading Trump alternative in March.
Cruz did manage to gain an endorsement from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Friday. In announcing his decision, however, Pence lavished praise on Trump for channeling “the frustration of millions of working Americans,” suggesting he was wary of criticizing the likely nominee.

The LGBT community has been fighting a decades-long culture war to be included in the fabrics of American society — and it’s winning.
Yet when it comes to their graduation ceremonies, it seems they’d prefer exclusivity.
More than 100 colleges and universities this spring will be holding separate graduation ceremonies for the LGBTQ population and their allies, according to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). This includes Georgetown University, Duke University, Harvard University and Boston College, among others.
The graduation ceremony is called the “Lavender Graduation,” signifying “pink triange that gay men were forced to wear in concentration camps and the black triange designating lesbians as political prisoners in Nazi Germany,” according to HRC.

The Obama administration appears to be bowing to international pressure and pursuing under-the-radar “alternative” ways to bring in more Syrian and other refugees — as soon as this year.
The latest indication that the administration is preparing to take in more than the 10,000 Syrians this year it already has committed to follows a March 30 “high-level meeting” on Syrian refugee admission in Geneva, Switzerland — convened by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
At the meeting, attended by State Department officials, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi called for countries to pursue “alternative avenues” for refugees – such as student and work visas, and expanded family reunification programs.

With the Republican presidential nomination within his grasp, Donald Trump is courting an unlikely group of voters: Bernie Sanders supporters.
The GOP front-runner has ratcheted up his rhetoric against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in recent weeks, calling her a “crooked” politician who is unqualified to be president.
But when it comes to her challenger, Bernie Sanders, Trump has taken a notably softer tone, praising the Vermont senator’s rhetoric and encouraging him to launch a third-party bid.
“I think Bernie Sanders should run as an independent. I think he’d do great,” Trump said at a victory rally in New York City Tuesday night, after sweeping five GOP contests in the Northeast.
With a Russian airstrike on a Syrian children’s hospital, could this have been anymore poorly timed?
A U.S. military investigation has concluded that a deadly air strike in Afghanistan last year that destroyed a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders did not amount to a war crime but was caused by a number of factors, including human errors.
Forty-two people were killed and 37 were wounded during an Oct. 3 strike that destroyed a hospital run by the international medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres.
“The investigation concluded that certain personnel failed to comply with the rules of engagement and the law of armed conflict, however, the investigation did not conclude that these failures amounted to a war crime,” General Joseph Votel, commander of U.S. Central Command, told reporters on Friday.

Somewhere between now and the twelve of never, if Lynch has her way.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch said there’s no deadline for concluding the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server, and said setting a deadline would only make the probe less thorough.
“People have to have confidence that we treat every case the same, no matter who’s last name is involved, no matter how much publicity it gets,” Lynch said in an interview on PBS’ “Charlie Rose.”
A man hosting a Hillary Clinton fundraiser this weekend in Michigan was forced to resign as Detroit’s police chief in 2010 because he was sleeping with one of his subordinates in the department.
Warren C. Evans, currently the Wayne County Executive, is listed as one of the hosts for Sunday’s “Conversation with Hillary” event at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Michigan, which can be attended for $1,000—or $2,700 if attendees want a picture with Clinton. To be listed as a host for the event, Evans raised at least $27,000 for the campaign and earned himself a private reception with Clinton.
Evans was tapped to be Detroit’s police chief in July 2009 but just over a year later was asked to step down by then-Mayor Dave Bing because “certain decisions” he made had compromised his ability to lead the department, the New York Times reported.
