When officers see a car cutting past lines that divide lanes, it could mean that the driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. There are 12 signs that police look for when spotting a possible drunken driver. Here’s what they look for: 1. Weaving across lane lines

Fox 26 News anchor Isiah Carey was arrested over the weekend on a DWI charge after Montgomery County authorities saw his vehicle swerving on the road, according to a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Carey, who hosts the station’s segment “The Isiah Factor,” was driving a black Mercedes passenger car westbound on Woodlands Parkway around 4 a.m. Sunday when a resident reported an intoxicated driver, the release said.
A Montgomery County deputy noticed the vehicle swerving and “numerous other indicators of possible impairment,” the release said.
OFF THE AIR: Longtime Houston sports reporter outsted
Deputies stopped the vehicle in the 3100 block of Woodlands Parkway and identified the driver as Isiah Carey Arbuckle. Police said he showed signs of impairment and was taken to the Montgomery County Jail on the DWI charge, which is a class B misdemeanor on a first offense.
Carey has since apologized for the incident on social media.
“I offer my deepest apologies to Fox 26, my family, and the community for this incident,” Carey said in a Facebook post. “I know that consuming any alcohol and driving is a poor decision. This situation does not reflect my values or my commitment to the city I have called home for 20 years. No matter what the outcome, I am fully committed to working tirelessly to restore the confidence and faith this community has placed in me.”
His attorney, Charles Adams, said he’s close friends with Carey and doesn’t believe the charge reflects his character.
“I would really just remind everyone that we have a presumption of innocence in America, and drinking some alcohol doesn’t mean you’re over the limit,” he said.
His blood-alcohol level was not immediately available at the time of the press release. A warrant has been signed for a blood test.
The legal counsel for KRIV could not be reached for comment by Wednesday afternoon.

Ashers ‘gay cake’ row: Bakers win Supreme Court appeal News

Media playback is unsupported on your device Media caption Watch how the controversial case has unfolded The Christian owners of a Northern Ireland bakery have won their appeal in the so-called “gay cake” discrimination case.
The UK’s highest court ruled that Ashers bakery’s refusal to make a cake with a slogan supporting same-sex marriage was not discriminatory.
The five justices on the Supreme Court were unanimous in their judgement .
The high-profile dispute began in 2014 when the bakery refused to make a cake with the slogan “Support Gay Marriage”.
Media playback is unsupported on your device Media caption Daniel and Amy McArthur, who own Ashers Bakery in Belfast, arrive at the Supreme Court in London The customer, gay rights activist Gareth Lee, sued the company for discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and political beliefs.
But the bakery has always insisted its objection was to the message on the cake, not the customer.
Ashers lost the case and the subsequent appeal , but on Wednesday the firm won its appeal at the Supreme Court.
In Quote: s: Reaction to judgement ‘Gay cake’ row Q&A Timeline: Bakery discrimination case The legal battle – which has lasted four-and-a-half years and has cost nearly £500,000 so far – has raised questions over equality and freedom of conscience.
Ashers bakery’s general manager Daniel McArthur said he was delighted and relieved by the ruling.
“I know a lot of people will be glad to hear this ruling today, because this ruling protects freedom of speech and freedom of conscience for everyone,” Mr McArthur said outside the court.
Mr Lee said the case had made him feel like a second-class citizen and that he was now concerned about “the implications for all of the gay community”.
Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Gareth Lee has been supported throughout the legal action by the Equality Commission “To me, this was never about conscience or a statement. All I wanted to do was to order a cake in a shop,” he said.
Northern Ireland’s Attorney General John Larkin welcomed the decision.
The Equality Commission for Northern Ireland, which has supported Gareth Lee’s action against Ashers, said it would study the implications of the judgement carefully.
“There is a concern that this judgement may raise uncertainty about the application of equality law in the commercial sphere, both about what businesses can do and what customers may expect,” said Dr Michael Wardlow, the organisation’s chief commissioner.
‘Most expensive cake in UK history’ By Mark Simpson at the Supreme Court in London
Questions will now be asked as to whether the Equality Commission was right to spend more than £250,000 of public money on this case.
DUP Ian Paisley MP said he has written to the Northern Ireland Secretary calling for a review of the organisation’s funding.
Skip Twitter post by @ianpaisleymp I have written to the Secretary of State for NI calling for a review of funding for the equality commission. After such a decisive finding by the Supreme Court the equality commissions immediate response has been to threaten to waste more public money on this case. Stop it now!
— Ian Paisley MP (@ianpaisleymp) October 10, 2018 Report End of Twitter post by @ianpaisleymp
The commission backed Mr Lee, who ordered the “gay cake” but was refused.
Four years later, the Supreme Court has ruled it was not a case of discrimination.
Ashers bakery has spent more £200,000 on the case. It is being paid by The Christian Institute, a charity and lobby group.
The cake at the centre of the dispute would have cost £36.50.
It has proved to be the most expensive cake order in UK history.
What is the row about? Customer Gareth Lee requested a cake featuring the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie, iced with the message: “Support Gay Marriage.”
His order was initially accepted at a branch of Ashers in Belfast city centre, but two days later the baking firm’s head office contacted Mr Lee to say the firm would not make the cake.
Why did the bakers refuse? The family-run baking company, based in County Antrim, has described the same-sex marriage slogan as “inconsistent” with its religious beliefs.
Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Daniel McArthur, pictured here with his wife Amy, said Ashers had served Mr Lee before, and would do so again But it points out that the company’s issue was with the slogan and not Mr Lee, claiming it would have refused the same order from a heterosexual client.
As he arrived outside the Supreme Court for the start of the case in May, Mr McArthur said: “We didn’t say no because of the customer; we’d served him before, we’d serve him again.
“It was because of the message. But some people want the law to make us support something with which we disagree.”
What has the court said and why? In the court’s judgement (case reference [2018] UKSC 49), president of the Supreme Court Lady Hale ruled that the bakers did not refuse to fulfil the order because of his sexual orientation.
“They would have refused to make such a cake for any customer, irrespective of their sexual orientation,” she said.
Image copyright PA Image caption Ashers Baking Company is situated on Royal Avenue in Belfast “Their objection was to the message on the cake, not to the personal characteristics of Mr Lee.”
She added: “Accordingly, this court holds that there was no discrimination on the ground of the sexual orientation of Mr Lee.”
What does this mean for the law? When Mr Lee first took action against the firm, he said the bakery’s actions left him feeling like a lesser person.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court ruled that there was no political discrimination as well as no discrimination based on Mr Lee’s sexual orientation.
“This conclusion is not in any way to diminish the need to protect gay people and people who support gay marriage from discrimination,” said Lady Hale.
“It is deeply humiliating, and an affront to human dignity, to deny someone a service because of that person’s race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
“But that is not what happened in this case.”
Five Supreme Courts justices travelled to Belfast earlier this year to hear the case.
What could the ramifications be? Some will regard the ruling – that service providers of any religion, race or sexual orientation can refuse to endorse a message they profoundly disagree with – as a victory for freedom of expression and freedom of ideas, says BBC legal correspondent Clive Coleman.
The ruling now poses the question whether it would be lawful, for instance, for a bakery to refuse to make a bar mitzvah cake because the bakers’ owners disagreed with ideas at the heart of the Jewish religion? What about a cake promoting “the glory of Brexit”, “support fox hunting”, or “support veganism”?
As a result of Wednesday’s ruling, there are likely to be further cases in which services are refused on the basis of beliefs held by the service providers, adds our correspondent.

PSN Name Changes Officially Announced by Sony – IGN News

10 Oct 2018 5:59 AM PDT PSN Name Changes Officially Announced by Sony Share. By Adam Bankhurst
After years of PlayStation owners being unable to change their PSN names, Sony has officially announced that they will soon be testing the PSN Online ID Change feature beta to allow users around the world to finally change their IDs.
Revealed on the PlayStation Blog, the PSN Online ID Change feature beta will initially be a part of their PlayStation Preview Program and “will become available to select users that have pre-registered as testers for previous PS4 system software betas.”
If accepted, users will be able to change their online ID as many times as they’d like, with the first change being completely free. Any changes after that will cost $9.99 USD/CAD, or $4.99 USD/CAD for PlayStation Plus members. Exit Theatre Mode
When an online ID is changed, the option to display the previous ID alongside the new one will be available to help your friends recognize you. Once decided, you won’t be able to switch between showing/not showing your old ID.
These PSN ID changes are “compatible with PS4 games originally published after April 1, 2018, and a large majority of the most-played PS4 games that were released before this date.”
It’s important to note that “not all games and applications for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita systems are guaranteed to support the online ID change, and users may occasionally encounter issues or errors in certain games.” Exit Theatre Mode
If you were to run into multiple issues and wish to undo the change, you will be able to revert the change and go back to your original name. During the beta, this change can only occur once.
The beta for PS name changes is “scheduled to conclude at the end of November 2018” and all PS4 owners will be able to change their names, if all goes well, in early 2019.
Earlier this week, it was reported that multiple anonymous developers of multiplayer games had been preparing for this change. Exit Theatre Mode
Adam Bankhurst is a news writer for IGN who is happy that PlayStation owners around the world will finally be able to fix the mistakes of their past. You can follow him on Twitter @AdamBankhurst. IN THIS ARTICLE

Woman who spent £16m in Harrods revealed – BBC News

These are external links and will open in a new window Close share panel Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Zamira Hajiyeva once spent £150,000 in a single day in Harrods, west London A woman who spent £16m at Harrods in a decade can now be identified as Zamira Hajiyeva – the first target for the UK’s new anti-corruption law.
Mrs Hajiyeva lost a legal battle to stay anonymous after the media argued the public should know the full facts.
Originally from Azerbaijan, she is the wife of an ex-state banker.
She risks losing her £15m home near the London store and a Berkshire golf course if she fails to explain the source of her wealth to the High Court.
Under the terms of the UK’s first ever Unexplained Wealth Order, Mrs Hajiyeva, 55, must now provide the National Crime Agency with a clear account of how she and her husband, Jahangir Hajiyev, could afford to buy their large home in the exclusive London neighbourhood of Knightsbridge.
Mrs Hajiyeva’s lawyers said the UWO “does not and should not be taken to imply any wrongdoing”, by her or her husband. They have applied for permission to appeal against the order. What is an Unexplained Wealth Order?
A UWO is a new power which has been designed to target suspected corrupt foreign officials who have potentially laundered stolen money through the UK.
Investigators from the National Crime Agency believe there are billions of pounds of dirty money invested in British property – but it is almost impossible to charge the owners with a crime or seize the assets because of a lack of evidence.
The new Unexplained Wealth Orders are an attempt to force the owners to disclose their wealth.
If a suspected corrupt foreign official, or their family, cannot show a legitimate source for their riches, then the National Crime Agency can apply to the High Court to seize the property. Who are the couple at the centre of this first action?
Jahangir Hajiyev is the former chairman of the International Bank of Azerbaijan.
He was jailed in 2016 for 15 years after being convicted of being part of a major fraud and embezzlement that saw tens of millions of pounds disappear from the bank. Judges also ordered him to repay $39m.
Seven years earlier, a company based in the British Virgin Islands paid £11.5m for a large home, just minutes’ walk from Harrods in west London. Its current market value is estimated at £15m. Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Jahangir Hajiyev – husband of Zamira Hajiyeva
The High Court heard that the ultimate owners were Mrs Hajiyeva and her husband.
In 2013, another company controlled by Mrs Hajiyeva spent more than £10m buying Mill Ride Golf Club in Berkshire, a plush course and estate near Ascot.
The Home Office gave Mrs Hajiyeva permission to live in the UK under a visa scheme for wealthy investors. How much money did the couple bring to the UK?
During a High Court hearing in July, in which the couple were known only as Mr and Mrs A, it was revealed that Mrs Hajiyeva had an enormous amount of disposable income.
Over ten years she spent more than £16m in Harrods – the equivalent of more than £4,000 a day.
Examples of her big spending, revealed to the court, included £150,000 spent on a single day on Boucheron – a luxury jewellery, perfume and watches brand.
The next day, the court heard, she topped up the wine cellar by spending £1,800.
On another occasion she spent £100,000 on Cartier jewellery and £20,000 on luxury men’s goods.
Mrs Hajiyeva used three store loyalty cards and 35 credit cards issued by her husband’s bank. Image caption The couple’s home in west London, a short walk from Harrods
In a ruling upholding the Unexplained Wealth Order, Mr Justice Supperstone said: “I agree with the NCA that this evidence is significant in the light of the reports of Mr A’s trial that allegations made against him included abuse of his position at the Bank by issuing credit cards in the names of family members, through which large debts were run up against the Bank.”
Official records reveal the couple also own two dedicated bays within the private Harrods car park and Mrs Hajiyeva also bought a $42m Gulfstream G550 jet.
Duncan Hames, director of policy at Transparency International UK, said the pressure group was “delighted” at the use of the Unexplained Wealth Order.
“UWOs should now be used more widely to pursue more of the £4.4 billion worth of suspicious wealth we have identified across the UK,” he said. Does Mrs Hajiyeva admit doing anything wrong?
No – she says she is innocent of the accusations and tried to challenge the Unexplained Wealth Order after it was imposed in February.
Lawyers for Mrs Hajieyva told the High Court that she and her husband are suffering a massive injustice.
“The decision of the High Court upholding the grant of an Unexplained Wealth Order against Zamira Hajiyeva does not and should not be taken to imply any wrongdoing, whether on her part or that of her husband,” they said in a statement.
“The NCA’s case is that the UWO is part of an investigative process, not a criminal procedure, and it does not involve the finding of any criminal offence.”
Jahangir Hajiyev denies defrauding his bank – but has unsuccessfully appealed against his conviction. His lawyers say that he fell out with Azerbaijan’s corrupt ruling family and paid the price.
He is asking the European Court of Human Rights to intervene in his case.
During her unsuccessful challenge to the Unexplained Wealth Order, Mrs Hajiyeva said her husband was a legitimate businessman who had become independently wealthy thanks to a string of successful businesses, before becoming a chairman at the bank.
But the National Crime Agency told the court that Mr Hajiyev had been a state employee between 1993 and 2015 – and as an official he would not have had the means to amass the wealth investigators have traced. Related Topics

Trump accepts Nikki Haley’s resignation as UN ambassador

UNITED NATIONS Published 8 mins ago Trump accepts Nikki Haley’s resignation as UN ambassador By Adam Shaw | Fox News close Video President Trump, Ambassador Haley speak on her resignation
President Trump accepted Nikki Haley’s resignation as U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Fox News confirmed Tuesday — marking a sudden and unexpected end to the tenure of one of the administration's most prominent figures.
Trump is expected to speak at the Oval Office at 10:30 a.m to address the resignation. It was not clear why Haley resigned, or why Trump accepted.
Axios, which first reported the news, reported that Haley discussed her resignation last week when she visited Trump at the White House. The outlet reported that the news shocked a number of senior foreign policy officials in the administration.
The U.S. Mission did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Fox News.
Haley had been a critic of Trump during the 2016 Republican primary campaign, but had emerged as a key figure in his administration as she pushed the administration’s policy goals on Iran, North Korea and other items of international cooperation. The former governor of South Carolina was confirmed as U.N. Ambassador four days after Trump was inaugurated in January 2017.
Haley was a fierce critic of U.N. mismanagement and bias against Israel and the U.S. She secured cuts to the U.S. contribution to the U.N. fund, and pulled the U.S. out of the U.N. Human Rights Council — calling it a “cesspool of political bias.”
