Man charged with assaulting wife crashes plane into own home hours later

Man charged with assaulting wife crashes plane into own home hours later

A Utah man who hours before had been arrested on domestic violence charges crashed a plane into the front of his home Monday, killing himself. Duane Youd, 47, of Payson, died when the Cesna 525 CitationJet struck the house, exploding and setting the house on fire, according to Payson police officials. Youd was killed in the crash, but two people inside -- identified by the Salt Lake Tribune as Youd’s wife and her son -- escaped uninjured through the back of the home.  “He is an experienced pilot,” Sgt. Noemi Sandoval, a Payson police spokeswoman, told the news media. “He flew from Spanish Fork Airport directly here, into the home.” Sandoval said the toll could have been worse. Youd, who was able to fly below power lines, clipped a shed and a car before the plane hit the house.  “I can’t believe he was able to fly in like that,” Youd’s friend, Alan Herbert, said at the crash scene. “If he hadn’t hit the car, I wonder how much more damage this would have done to the house.” Payson police officials said that Youd was arrested Sunday night and charged with assault for allegedly abusing his wife. That incident took place in American Fork Canyon, where the couple reportedly went to discuss their marital problems.  Witnesses who saw the assault called the Utah County Sheriff’s Office.  “It was not just a slap or a shove,” Utah County sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Cannon told the Tribune. “It was an ongoing thing described by witnesses.” >> Read more trending news Youd was booked into the Utah County Jail at 9:18 p.m. on an assault charge, jail records show. He was released around 12:30 a.m. Monday after signing an agreement to stay away from his wife and posting $1,940 bond.  Payson police officials said Youd requested assistance from police officers there to accompany him to his home so he could pick up some belongings and his vehicle. The trip to the house took place without incident. Less than two hours later, he crashed the plane into the home, authorities said. The Payson Fire Department responded, and firefighters extinguished the blaze.  Youd’s son from a prior marriage, Parker Youd, spoke to reporters at the scene. The 17-year-old, who was at his mother’s house when the crash took place, said his father told him things were going to be “rough for a little bit,” but gave no indication that he would hurt himself or others.  Parker Youd was likely the last person to talk to his father, who he described as “the best dad (he) could ask for.” “I said, ‘I love you. Good luck. I’ll see you tomorrow,’” Parker Youd said. “He said, ‘I love you, too,’ got in his truck, and drove away.” Joslyn Youd, 21, posted a photo of her father, smiling and holding a caught fish in his hands, on Facebook. The caption read, “I’ll love you forever.” Neighbors and friends who knew Duane Youd said they, too, were shocked by the events that took place. Zach Linch, who lives next door to the crime scene, said Youd was always a good neighbor. “I would never have have expected anything like this,” Linch told the Tribune. “He seemed like a normal guy to me.” Herbert, who had known Youd since they were teenagers, said the crash was not something he would have expected from his friend.  “He was an exciting guy to be around,” Herbert told the newspaper. “Always positive, never negative. If you were feeling bad, he’d always make sure you were feeling good when you left.”

Trump campaign files for arbitration against Omarosa

Trump campaign files for arbitration against Omarosa

Officials with the 2016 presidential campaign for Donald Trump have filed arbitration action against former White House aide and “The Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault Newman, according to multiple reports. >> Read more trending news Campaign officials are filing a claim with the American Arbitration Association in New York, in which they say Manigault Newman’s book, “Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House,' and the media tour preceding its release Tuesday breached a 2016 confidentiality agreement, the Associated Press reported, citing a campaign aide. >> Trump calls former aide Omarosa a 'dog' An unidentified Trump campaign official confirmed the arbitration filing Tuesday in a statement to CNN. The president said Monday that “Wacky Omarosa,” who recently released audio recordings that she says were made during her time in the White House, signed a non-disclosure agreement. She has previously acknowledged that she signed a confidentiality agreement with the Trump campaign in 2016. Still, Manigault Newman released a recording over the weekend allegedly taken in December, while Chief of Staff John Kelly was informing Manigault Newman of her dismissal from the White House. 'It's come to my attention over the last few months that there's been some pretty, in my opinion, significant integrity issues,' a man, purportedly Kelly, can be heard saying in the recording. 'I think it's important to understand that if we make this a friendly departure ... you can look at your time here in the White House as a year of service to the nation, and then you can go on without any type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation.' >> Trump denies using racial slur during 'Celebrity Apprentice' Newman told 'Meet the Press' that she believed the latter comment was a threat. In another clip released by Manigault Newman allegedly featured the president, who said in the recording that he was surprised to hear of her firing. “Nobody even told me about it. You know they run a big operation, but I didn’t know it,” a man, purportedly Trump, says in the recording. “I don’t love you leaving at all.” >> Listen to the clip (WARNING: Audio includes strong language.)  Manigault Newman says she has also heard audio tape of Trump using the N-word, a claim the president denies. Manigault Newman served as the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison until January, when reports surfaced that she was 'physically dragged' from the White House. Secret Service officials later denied Manigault Newman was physically removed from the premises.  She was one of Trump's most prominent African-American supporters. The president thanked her in February during an event for African-American History Month, saying that she was 'very special.' >> Omarosa’s book promises 'jaw-dropping' account on White House from Trump insider 'I want to thank my television star over here,' Trump said at the Feb. 1 event, referencing Manigault Newman's time on his reality show competition, 'The Apprentice.'

12 weeks to Election Day as four more states hold primaries for Congress

With less than three months until the mid-term elections for the U.S. House and Senate, four more states hold primaries today for the Congress, but the roster of races is unlikely to produce the news associated with last week’s tight race in a special U.S. House election in Ohio, which amplified questions about whether the GOP can maintain control of Capitol Hill after November.

Primaries take place on Tuesday in four states: Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont and Wisconsin.
