‘That is beautiful, man.’ Actor Jon Cryer thrilled to get his wedding ring back thanks to Vancouver jewelry sleuth

Standing on Vancouver’s iconic seawall, Vancouver’s iconic rain hammering down as the dark closed in, Jon Cryer was despondent.

On Friday night, the American actor had been walking to meet some castmates — he’s currently in B.C. because he’s playing Lex Luthor in the Supergirl TV series — when he pulled a hand out of his pocket and heard a tiny “ping,” he wrote in a Twitter thread that has since been shared by thousands. He walked a few more steps before he realized what had happened.

His wedding ring? Gone.

Cryer, probably best known for co-starring on Two and a Half Men, for which he won two Primetime Emmys, says he turned on the flashlight on his phone and began an ad hoc grid search of the pavement and soggy strip of grass, all the while wondering if it was possible the ring rolled right into the ocean.

Black man who was led by mounted police using a rope sues over ‘slave’-style arrest

The Black man’s hands were cuffed behind his back as two white police officers on horseback steered him through the streets of Galveston, Texas. The mounted officers used a long blue rope to guide the man several blocks under the glare of the summer sun.

Footage of Donald Neely’s August 2019 arrest triggered a national outcry, with the scene drawing comparisons to the inhumane treatment of enslaved people in the 1800s.

According to Neely’s lawsuit, the way he was arrested made him feel “as though he was a slave.” The lawsuit, filed against the city and its police force last week, alleges that Neely’s arrest on suspicion of criminal trespassing was “extreme and outrageous.”

The police chief apologized, and the charges have been dropped, according to Neely’s attorney, Julie Ketterman. But Neely is now seeking up to $1 million in damages for emotional distress, malicious prosecution, and negligence after suffering

Galveston police sued by Donald Neely, Black man who was led by rope by officers on horses

According to his new lawsuit, Neely said the way he was arrested made him feel “as though he was a slave.” The lawsuit, filed against the city and its police force last week, alleges that Neely’s arrest on suspicion of criminal trespassing was “extreme and outrageous.”

The police chief apologized, and the charges have been dropped, according to Neely’s attorney, Julie Ketterman. But Neely is now seeking up to $1 million in damages for emotional distress, malicious prosecution, and negligence after suffering both mental and physical anguish by those who had a duty to protect him, the attorney said.

The lawsuit alleges that he suffered physical and emotional pain, including handcuff abrasions, as he was led on foot to a mounted-officer staging area because no vehicles were immediately available to transport him.

The Galveston Police Department said it would not comment on an active lawsuit.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BUNNELL, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man was arrested for using an assault-style weapon to threaten a census taker who had come to his house for the nationwide count of every U.S. resident.

Michael Cooper, 32, was arrested Monday after threatening census taker Johnny Swinney, according to a police report.

Neighbors told deputies that Swinney’s U.S. Census Bureau badge was clearly identifiable when he approached Cooper sitting on the porch of his home and the census taker identified himself as a federal worker, according to an incident report.

So I was wrong.

Up until the start of Wednesday’s vice presidential debate, I had been worried that Kamala Harris would fall victim to Mike Pence’s Midwestern nice schtick, honed during his time as governor of Indiana.

That if the California senator came after him like the hard-charging former prosecutor that she is, Pence would just shake his head and smile that smarmy smile, making Harris look like an angry Black woman and himself the picture of calm and civility.

But then it happened.

With just one exchange, Harris out-Midwestern-niced the Midwestern nice master, exposing Pence for the overconfident, condescending, weak and scared white man that he really is.

And even more importantly, she put a different kind of dent in the glass ceiling. Using
