21 Year Old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. Indicted on 15 Felony Counts, Including Aggravated Assault, Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm and Others
21 year old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. was indicted Friday by a grand jury on 15 felony counts, including aggravated assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, disorderly conduct, endangerment and carrying out a drive-by shooting. However, prosecutors did not file terrorism charges against Merritt in the highway shootings. Authorities had called these shootings an act of domestic terrorism. Mettitt was arrested on September 18 at a Wal-Mart. Merritt remains in jail on a $1 million bond.
A grand jury on Friday indicted a man suspected in four of the freeway shootings that have rattled the Phoenix area since late last month.
The indictment of 21-year-old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr. replaces a 16-count criminal complaint announced earlier in the week.
Merritt, of suburban Glendale, was indicted on 15 felony counts, including aggravated assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm, disorderly conduct, endangerment and carrying out a drive-by shooting.
Prosecutors did not file terrorism charges that authorities originally sought against the landscaper and father of two who was arrested Sept. 18 at a Wal-Mart. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery previously said Arizona’s terrorism laws enacted after 9/11 focus mostly on protecting public utilities from attack and would not apply to the freeway shootings.
Using ballistics tests, Arizona Department of Public Safety detectives tied Merritt to four of the 11 shootings that occurred on Phoenix-area freeways between Aug. 27 and Sept. 10.
EPIC: Spring Break Police Officer Sgt. Bryan Bingham Arrests Two Punks MMA Style in What May Be One of Greatest Ever
BAD BOYS, BAD BOYS. WHAT YA GONNA DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU …
Check out the VIDEO below of Pinellas County Sheriff police officer, Sergeant Bryan Bingham, on St. Pete Beach as he deals with two out of control and unruly, white trash punks, Josh McMahan, 25, and Justin Lewis, 24. His arrest of these two thugs MMA style is epic and has gone viral. Back up never arrived for officer Bingham to deal with these two rowdy
beach-goers thugs, so he was forced to deal with it alone. And deal with it he did. Both McMahan and Lewis were charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. And of course they got the beat down of their lives.
Bingham went on to say as he approached the scene he saw two groups of people fighting and he had very little time to decide on whether to call somebody and wait or try to keep other people from getting hurt. He said he decided to act instead of waiting.
“My main goal was to control that situation,” said Sgt. Bryan Bingham.
He said he saw Josh McMahan, 25, and Justin Lewis, 24, were the “main aggressors” in the group and he tried to get McMahan out of the situation and de-escalate it.
At that moment, McMahan allegedly spit in Bingham’s face, so he took him down. Minutes later, Lewis interfered and tried to stop Sgt. Bingham from doing his job, so the sergeant took him down.

What were these two idiots thinking in trying to mess with Sgt. Bryan Bingham, had they not noticed the guns on this officer, and I am not referring to one one in his holster. Sgt. Bryan Bingham may be in the wrong profession and might want to consider a future in MMA. He took these two fools on as he pressed his knee on one of their throats and wrestled the other to the grown, much to the cheers of the crowd. Maybe the best of all was when he put one of the punks in a sleeper hold and forced him to tap out.
At about that moment a bystander began videotaping the intense scene — and the now-viral clip shows Bingham calmly manhandling who Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri called a pair of “thugs.”
Bingham tried getting McMahan away from the fight to deescalate matters, grabbing him by the neck, throwing him to the sand and then using a jawline pressure-point technique to subdue him, Bay News 9 reported.
Gualtieri said McMahan then spit in Bingham’s face, so the deputy “took him to the ground.” The sheriff added that ”very few” in the crowd surrounding Bingham came to his aid.
What’s more, there was Lewis attempted to intervene — but his fate was similar, as Bingham easily overpowered him…
…and even used what appeared to be a sleeper hold until he was tapping Bingham’s shoulder for mercy.
EXIT QUESTION: Just curious, had the two thugs been black and this white officer did the exact same thing, would the race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson come out of the woodwork, would Barack Obama defended them and said they could have been his son and would Attorney General Eric Holder begun a DOJ investigation into how white police officers treat blacks differently?

Samuel “Curt” Johnson III, SC Johnson Heir Pleads Guilty to Sexually Assaulting Teen … Sentenced to Misdemeanor, Fourth-Degree Sexual Assault
THERE CAN BE NO JUSTICE WHEN THE VICTIM DOES NOT WANT IT …
Samuel “Curt” Johnson III, heir to the SC Johnson fortune, was convicted on Friday of sexually assaulting a teen. However, the felony was downgraded to a misdemeanor, fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct. Johnson was initially charged in 2011 with the repeated sexual assault of a child, that charge carries a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. However, Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz sentenced Johnson to four months in jail and fined $6,000. Wow, $6,000, that is the equivalent of like 6 cents for this individual. However, the problem this time was not a lenient judge or lame prosecutor, it was the victim and her family. Neither the girl nor her mother wanted a case brought against Johnson, but the female victim did initially tell Racine County investigators that Johnson had inappropriate sexual contact with her 15 to 20 times, starting the summer after she finished sixth grade. She said Johnson exposed himself, fondled her under her clothes and kissed her breasts and elsewhere.
A Wisconsin billionaire pleaded guilty Friday to repeatedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl, a charge that prosecutors ended up downgrading from a felony to a misdemeanor after they said the victim and her family repeatedly refused to cooperate.
Samuel “Curt” Johnson III, whose family has run home-products giant SC Johnson for five generations, was convicted of fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to four months in jail, short of the one-year maximum. He was also fined $6,000.
In considering the sentence, Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz acknowledged that neither the girl nor her mother wanted a case brought against Johnson. Authorities only became aware of the allegations after the 59-year-old sought counseling at a clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he made an undisclosed comment that triggered a mandatory report.
Sadly, this billionaire sex offender is going to get off with a slap on the wrist. Assistant District Attorney Robert Repischak said the victim and her mother refused to cooperate from the outset, leaving him a flimsy case at best. Repischak told reporters after the hearing, “I would have liked a chance to present the felony case to a jury. But given the state of the case, with little if any evidence, I did was I was able to do.”
