Florida could be the first state to allow digital driver’s licenses

Florida could be the first state to allow digital driver’s licenses

Florida driver’s licenses could be going digital. That’s the hope of Republican state Rep. James Grant and Democrat Rep. Matt Willhite if a bill they are working on passes. The bill would allow driver’s to present an electronic version of their driver’s license on their phones in case they forget their wallets at home and don’t have physical proof. Orlando resident Ralph Menzona tells News 96.5 WDBO that it’s a great idea. “I always have my phone and I always forget my wallet. So this would help me out a lot.” A statewide database would be created to store driver’s license and insurance information. According to WPBF News, the bill would also include language “that would not give police authority to search the phone for any data.” The state leaders hope to have the bill filed by the March deadline in order for it to be reviewed in the Legislature.

TRENDING: Royal Caribbean bans passenger for jumping off ship in the Bahamas 

A group of men have been banned for life from the Royal Caribbean cruise line after one of them jumped off the ship in a now viral video, reports Yahoo Lifestyle. An Instagram video posted by Nick Naydev, 27, of Vancouver, Washington, shows him standing on a rail of a balcony of the Symphony of the Seas as it was docking in Nassau, Bahamas. Naydev then jumps into the sea below from the eleventh floor as his friends cheer him on and laugh. (Instagram) His friend who recorded the video, Konstantin Kryachun, later posted on his Instagram story of the group being interrogated by police and kicking them off the ship, leaving the men to find their own way back home. The videos have racked up plenty of comments calling the stunt everything from funny to stupid. “This moron is luck he was seriously injured or killed,” said Instagram user Christopher Wood. “HOW HIS SO CALLED FRIENDS CAN STAND THERE AND DO NOTHING. IDIOTS.” Royal Caribbean Cruises tells Yahoo Lifestyle that they are exploring legal action.

High school football star arrested at school on murder charges

High school football star arrested at school on murder charges

A star athlete at a high school in Douglas County, Georgia, is being held in jail without bond after police arrested him on murder charges. >> Watch the news report here Police arrested Jalen Morgan, 17, on the Alexander High School campus last week because they said he was part of a conspiracy to commit murder in May of last year. Investigators said seven people were involved, and Morgan, along with his cousin LeAndrea Morgan, acted as the lookouts for the crime. “Two of these individuals had pre-existing issues with each other, and they showed up in an attempt to commit this act,” said Sgt. Jesse Hambrick, with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. WSB-TV’s Tyisha Fernandes learned that the intended target for the crime was not the person shot and killed. The documents say that during the robbery, one of the suspects fired a shot at the intended target – Kenneth McClary – but McClary shot back and killed the suspect. Now, all seven suspects are being held in jail without bond. >> Read more news stories  Police arrested the suspects just a few weeks after the slaying, and last week they arrested the Morgan cousins. They've wrapped the case. “These last two were the last two that they expect, and they’re ready to move forward from there,” Hambrick said. Each suspect is facing several charges, and one is accused of being a gang member. Investigators said he's part of the Bloods. They're saying he committed the crime with the intent to maintain and increase his status as a known gang member.

Democrats offer plan to raise federal minimum wage to $15 per hour

With the federal minimum wage of $7.25 cents an hour unchanged for ten years, Democrats on Wednesday unveiled a plan in Congress to more than double that pay rate over a six year period, arguing it’s past time for lawmakers to make it easier for working Americans to earn enough money to support their families.

“President Trump isn’t going to stick up for American workers – we Democrats will,” Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer said to cheers at a U.S. Capitol news conference.

“No person working full-time in America should be living in poverty,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA), who will lead [More]
