TURLOCK, Calif. – Four deputies were injured and a sheriff’s horse was punched when a fight broke out during a busy night at the Stanislaus County Fair.

Around 10 p.m. Sunday, a group of drunken men reportedly wearing gang attire had gathered near a beer booth, according to the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department.

When they were told to leave the fair, the sheriff’s department reports one of the men attacked a deputy, starting an altercation that drew a large crowd.

At one point, a man got knocked over by Maximus, a horse with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department. The sheriff’s department says the man’s beer spilled and he retaliated by punching Maximus in his hindquarters.

The four deputies sustained minor injuries in the brawl.

In total, five people were arrested, including the man who punched Maximus.

The sheriff’s department says the horse is doing just fine and was recovering Monday by “running around his pasture and eating alfalfa.” They even posted a picture of Maximus with a tiny Band-Aid and a teddy bear to comfort him.

MOSCOW — Boxer Maxim Dadashev has died after suffering a brain injury in a fight in Maryland. He was 28.

The Russian Boxing Federation says Dadashev died “as a result of the injuries he sustained” in Friday’s light-welterweight fight with Subriel Matias at the Theater at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland.

Dadashev was hospitalized shortly after the fight, which was stopped by his corner after the 11th round when Dadashev took numerous shots to the head.

Footage from the fight shows Dadashev shaking his head as his trainer, Buddy McGirt, pleads with him to stop the fight, telling him: “You’re getting hit too much, Max. Please, Max, please let me do this.”

Both fighters were 13-0 before the fight, which offered the winner the right to challenge IBF title-holder Josh Taylor.

ORANGE COUNTY, California-- Two men and a woman face a slew of charges after a family dispute turned violent in the middle of Mickey's Toontown earlier this month, prosecutors said.

The melee, which took place on July 5, was captured on a video that subsequently went viral. It was also witnessed by other park guests, including children.

Avery Desmond-Edwinn Robinson, 35, of Las Vegas, has been charged with five felonies and nine misdemeanors. He allegedly attacked his sister, brother-in-law and girlfriend, and endangered his child and three other children, according to a news release from the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

Robinson is also accused of threatening to kill a relative while they drove out of a parking structure after being kicked out of the Anaheim theme park, and assaulting a Disneyland cast member with his car after being escorted out by park security, according to the release.

The felony charges against him include domestic battery, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of criminal threats, prosecutors said. The misdemeanor charges include multiple counts each of battery, and child abuse and endangerment.

His sister, 40-year-old Andrea Nicole Robinson of Compton, was charged with five misdemeanors, including four counts of battery and one count of assault, according to the release.

The woman's husband, 44-year-old Daman Petrie of Compton, has been charged with one misdemeanor count of battery, prosecutors said.

Avery Robinson, who is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday, faces a maximum possible prison sentence of seven years and four months in state prison if convicted  as charged, according to the DA's office.  He's being held in Orange County Jail.

Andrea Robinson faces a maximum of 2 1/2 years in jail if she's convicted on all charges, while Petrie could face up to six months in jail.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Authorities say a 23-year-old tourist from Chicago punched a worker in the face when her FastPass wasn’t valid for the Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

An Orange County Sheriff’s report says the Disney World cast member offered to help the woman’s group on July 13, but they only became angrier.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the woman started pushing buttons on the podium that could have affected the ride.

When the employee pushed her hand away, the woman punched her in the face. The family yelled profanities and recorded the worker.

The group left the ride, but security tracked them down. Disney officials tell the Sentinel they issued a lifetime ban on the woman.

The worker didn’t want to press charges and the woman wasn’t arrested.

WASHINGTON — About 3.1 million people would lose food stamp benefits under the Trump administration’s proposal to tighten automatic eligibility requirements for the food stamp program.

The Agriculture Department said Tuesday that the rule would close “a loophole” that enables people receiving only minimal benefits from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program to be eligible automatically for food stamps without undergoing further checks on their income or assets.

“For too long, this loophole has been used to effectively bypass important eligibility guidelines. Too often, states have misused this flexibility without restraint,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement.

The proposed rule is the latest in the Trump administration’s efforts to cut back on the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program or SNAP, the official name of the food stamp program.

It also has proposed to tighten work requirements for those who receive federal food assistance.

USDA estimates 1.7 million households — 3.1 million people — “will not otherwise meet SNAP’s income and asset eligibility prerequisites under the proposed rule.”

That would result in a net savings of about $9.4 billion over five years.

An unpublished version of the proposed rule acknowledges the impact, saying it “may also negatively impact food security and reduce the savings rates among those individuals who do not meet the income and resource eligibility requirements for SNAP or the substantial and ongoing requirements for expanded categorical eligibility.”

Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., called the proposal “yet another attempt by this administration to circumvent Congress” and that the effect would be to “take food away from families, prevent children from getting school meals, and make it harder for states to administer food assistance.”

Congress has rejected previous, similar attempts to change the expanded automatic eligibility provisions, most recently during the farm bill debate in 2018.

About 36 million people participated in SNAP in April, down from more than 38 million a year earlier.

Under current law, states can automatically make people eligible for food stamps, if they meet income and other requirements for TANF.

USDA says 43 states — including Colorado — have expanded that to include households that it says “barely participate” in TANF. The provision is called “expanded categorical eligibility.”

USDA said the policy has resulted in people receiving food stamps who don’t need it and wouldn’t qualify under regular program rules.

Ellen Vollinger, legal director of the Food Research & Action Center, said the proposal was troubling and that the government should “put attention on how to help more people, not undercut supports for them and make their struggle against hunger even harder.”

She said the department didn’t seem to address a resulting loss of school meals, which she said the Congressional Budget Office included in its analyses of previous, similar proposals.

“It’s another hit on hunger,” she said.

Under the proposal, to qualify for automatic eligibility, people would have to get at least $50 a month in benefits from TANF for a minimum of six months.

Perdue said the change is necessary for “preventing abuse of a critical safety net system so those who need food assistance the most are the only ones who receive it.”

The rule, expected to be published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, is open for public comment for 60 days.
