The driver who crashed his car into a crowd in NYC's Times Square has been charged with second-degree murder.

Police say Richard Rojas seemed to be "emotionally disturbed" in his statements to officers after killing one person — an 18-year-old woman — and injuring 22 others on Thursday.

NYPD sources say the Bronx native told officials he experienced hallucinations, and later "alluded to suicide by cop" and "the end of days."

Based on the 26-year-old's statements and preliminary testing, police confirm he was allegedly "under the influence of a substance other than alcohol, which he ingested by smoking."

Rojas was believed to be under the influence of synthetic marijuana. Sources told ABC News they also found indications he was interested in Scientology.

In addition to the murder charge, the former Naval officer faces five counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and 20 counts of attempted murder.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said there is "no indication that this was an act of terrorism" at a Thursday press conference, as Rojas has two previous

Sculptor Of Wall Street's Charging Bull Says Fearless Girl Is Ruining His Art!

On International Women's Day last month, a sculpture of a Fearless Girl was installed in front of New York City's iconic Charging Bull on Wall Street.

This defiant little bronze statue was temporarily installed as a symbol of equality and pressure for big investment firms to add more women to their boards.

And just like the women she represents, Fearless Girl is already having to deal with some serious patriarchal bull.

Specifically, from the man who created her arch enemy, the Bull, who is accusing NYC of violating his legal rights by allowing the Fearless Girl to be installed without his permission.

Arturo Di Modica will challenge city officials for issuing a permit to allow Kristen Visbal's figure to stay until February 2018. He says the presence of FG infringes on his own artistic copyright to the Bull by changing the

UPDATE: 9/19 11:32 a.m. EST — Police arrested prime suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami Monday morning after he reportedly shot two officers in Linden, New Jersey. He is currently in custody despite getting shot once himself.


Saturday night, New York City's Chelsea neighborhood was rocked when a bomb went off and left 29 people injured. What's even more scary is this occurred shortly after a couple pipe bombs went off in Seaside Park and Elizabeth, New Jersey earlier in the day!

On top of that, there was a second pressure cooker bomb found a couple blocks away from the Chelsea blast following the explosion — and now authorities think they're linked!

Hillary Clinton & NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio's Racial Humor Offends — See The Awkward Moment!

Filed under: Oops!PolitikHillary ClintonNew YorkControversy

Even though it was clearly a joke… this was not a smart thing to do.

Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio were taking part in a black tie event in front of journalists and politicos on Saturday in the city, when they made a joke that just should never have been written.

The mayor — who officially endorsed Clinton and then teased her about how long it took — stepped up to the mic in front of Hamilton cast member Leslie Odom Jr., and decided that would be the perfect time to make a joke about… 'colored people'?!

Because it took de Blasio so long to endorse Clinton, he apparently thought it'd be a good day to make a joke about endorsing her on "C.P. time."

Of course, that is most commonly short for "colored people's time," a stereotype that has perpetuated about African-Americans being lazy and late to appointments.

He and Clinton played it off in the moment with a bad joke — ch-ch-check out how it goes down (below) — but the damage was done:

New ISIS Propaganda Video Includes Shots Of Times Square

Filed under: ViolenceScary!NewsViral: News

Police say there is no specific threat.

ISIS has released a new propaganda video that references New York City.

The clip began circulating the internet on Wednesday, showing footage of what appears to be a suicide bomber constructing an explosive for a belt.

Shots of Times Square are spliced in-between those of a faceless individual building a suicide belt. The footage shows taxis, crowds, and notable NYC storefronts.

The video did NOT show a bomber or radicalist in the city itself. But the clip did include video of French President François Hollande speaking after last week's tragic Paris attacks.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Stephen Davis acknowledges that this appears to be a threat towards the Big Apple, saying in a statement:

"While some of the video footage is not new, the video reaffirms the message that New York City remains a top terrorist target."

He made it clear that the police are treating the matter incredibly seriously, even though there is no word of any immediate threat, continuing:

police brutality chokehold seven month pregnant woman

What in the world is going on these days?!

Recently, a man named Eric Garner was taken down by police with a brutal chokehold… and ended up dying after the encounter.

Well, over the weekend, Rosean Miller, a seven-month-pregnant woman, was grilling in front of her apartment. An officer informed her that she couldn’t do that, and this is where the details get fuzzy. He reportedly said he needed to go into her home, and she didn’t let him, which is when the officer did the unthinkable.
