Canton Man Arrested For Stalking Ex-Girlfriend

A local man is behind bars after reportedly stalking his ex girlfriend. Police say a woman identifying herself as the ex-girlfriend of 21 year old Brandon Williams went to the police department Wednesday morning to report he was following her. An officer apparently stopped a suspicious vehicle on Parkland Avenue SW where the driver, later confirmed to be Williams, gave the officer a fake name and date of birth before speeding away. Officials say they did not pursue the vehicle, which later they found out had been stolen from a local repair shop. The woman contacted the police again a short time later to report that Williams was following her again so police went to where he'd last been seen and he was arrested without a fight. He's now facing a number of charges including failure to comply and menacing by stalking and other charges. 

Cleveland Protesters Shutdown Shoreway

They're still protesting in Ferguson, Missouri, and now they're doing the same in Cleveland. Protesters shut down the Shoreway and demonstrated in Cleveland's Public Square in response to recent police-involved deaths, including the decision by a Ferguson grand jury not to indict Darren Wilson and the fatal police shooting of a 12-year-old boy in Cleveland. The protest began at Public Square, and then demonstrators marched to the highway. It stopped traffic and caused officers to shut it down for an hour.  The protest ended at the Cudell Recreation Center, where a community forum was held in response to 12-year old Tamir Rice's death. Rice was shot and killed by police there while carrying an air gun. PHOTO COURTESY MIAMI HERALD

BBB Warns of 'Giving Tuesday' Scammers

The Better Business Bureau says charities should be scrutinized before you give them money. Next Tuesday is considered "Giving Tuesday," a national push to urge people to donate to a charity this holiday season. But the Better Business Bureau say - scammers use your acts of kindness - as a crime of opportunity. Protect yourself this holiday season. Make sure the charity you donate to is accredited by the BBB. Check the charity's exact name - scammers will name their so-called charity with a similar name to a legitimate one. And make sure the charity provides examples of how that money will be used.
