Florida family playing ‘Call of Duty’ have police called on them by concerned neighbors
A virtual battle turned into some real-life drama for a Florida family last week when neighbors contacted police after thinking a gun battle was taking place in their home.
The city of Deland said in a release that officers had to respond to a home on Nov. 15 after neighbors called to report a possible disturbance when they heard a man and woman yelling things including “that is my gun, give it to me” and “please don’t kill me.”
“Hi I’m calling because I hear my neighbors fighting down the street from me and I’m a little concerned with what they’re saying,” a person who called 911 could be heard saying. “She heard them screaming something like a woman saying please don’t kill me.”
When officers arrived at the home, however, they found out the couple was instead playing “Call of Duty” in their home.
“Thankfully, it was not the situation police thought they were being called to,” city officials stated.
The woman inside the home, Jamie McKee, told FOX35 it was the first time she was playing with her husband at their home with the windows open. The game got heated at one point between her, her husband, and their daughter.
“I was in there laughing and don’t kill me you know,” she told FOX35.
Bodycam footage shows the officers going to the door, and McKee explaining to the officers it was just a video game.
“They took it pretty serious, but unfortunately, it wasn’t that serious, so it’s kinda funny but it’s kinda not,” she said.
The Deland resident said the whole incident taught her a very important lesson going forward.
“We will close the windows when we play,” she said.
Calif. Teen Baked Grandfather’s Ashes Into Cookies
A high school student mixed her cremated grandfather’s ashes into homemade sugar cookies and shared them with several classmates, Davis Police said Wednesday.
The student and a friend baked the cookies and shared them with at least nine classmates at their public charter high school near Sacramento on Oct. 4, said Davis Police Lt. Paul Doroshov. He said the Da Vinci Charter Academy students told some of their classmates that the cookies contained human ashes.
He said investigators interviewed nine students who ate the cookies, and said there are other supporting details that he declined to disclose that make the allegations credible. Doroshov said the students are unlikely to be charged with a crime, even if one can be found that would apply.
A classmate who told KCRA that he unknowingly took a bite of one of the sandy-textured cookie said he believes they contained human ashes. “She had mentioned her grandpa’s ashes before,” classmate Andy Knox said.
Knox said the girl, who was not identified by authorities, previously offered him some ashes if he swapped desks with another student in their class.
“I didn’t believe her until she pulled out the urn,” Knox said. “She told me there’s a special ingredient in the cookie.”
He said he became worried after tasting the cookie. “I thought that she put drugs in it or something,” he said.
Knox said the girl laughed and said the cookie contained her grandfather’s ashes. “And I was really, I was kind of horrified,” he said. He took only one bite.
“If you ever ate sand as a kid, you know, you can kind of feel it crunching in between your teeth,” he said. “So, there was a little tiny bit of that.”
Investigators said other students knew of the ashes before eating some of the cookies.
Doroshov said he and investigators are at a loss to identify a motive. “They’re juveniles and it’s not a heinous or serious crime,” he said. There was no public health risk either, he said.
“I really don’t think it fits into any crime section,” Doroshov said. He said investigators looked at an obscure law making it illegal to mishandle human remains, but said “this isn’t what that law was intended to stop.”
He said police will let the school handle the matter. Da Vinci teaches 580 students in grades 7-12 and describes itself as a technology-based school.
