Video shows ambushed LA County deputy applying tourniquet to partner

Shocking new surveillance footage shows a Los Angeles County deputy applying a tourniquet to her partner, despite her own gunshot wounds from a still-at-large gunman who ambushed them on Saturday night.

The female deputy, who took a bullet through her jaw, could be seen tying the device on the upper right arm of her male colleague after the two were shot in Compton, according to footage obtained by KABC.

Both deputies were standing as the tourniquet was being applied and the man later appeared to kneel down with the woman crouching behind him.

Late Sunday, an image was released showing the bloodied female deputy standing beside her kneeling partner. It’s unclear if that photo was a still frame from the surveillance recording.

The two cops — a 31-year-old mother and a 24-year-old man — were shot at close range while sitting inside their patrol car in a chilling caught-on-video ambush.

Both deputies underwent surgery and are in stable condition at the hospital, KABC reported.

The sheriff’s department is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the unknown gunman.

Obama's school basketball jersey could fetch $200k in auction

They’re hoping Obama fans will shoot high for this memorabilia.

Clothes worn by Barack Obama and wife Michelle are being sold in a celebrity auction — with the former president’s high school basketball jersey expected to score as much as $200,000.

The hoops-loving president’s jersey will be auctioned off alongside items owned by superstars like Michael Jordan, Colin Kaepernick and Kobe Bryant in the “Icons and Idols” sports sale by Julien’s Auctions in Beverley Hills on Dec. 4.

The number 23 shirt from his days on the Punahou School team in Hawaii comes with the 1979 school yearbook, which includes photos of him playing. They’re expected to fetch $150,000 to $200,000, Julien’s said.

Meanwhile, an elegant cocktail dress worn by Michelle during a 2010 Washington fundraiser will then be sold at a “Hollywood” auction two days later, Julien’s announced Wednesday.

The black vintage Norman Norell 1950s gown — believed to be the former First Lady’s only gown to have been offered in an auction — is expected to fetch $50,000 to $70,000, the auction house said.

“The Obamas’ personal items … don’t come up very often,” said Kody Frederick, gallery director for Julien’s Auctions.

“But every now and again some things fall through the cracks.”

Obama’s well-documented love of basketball continued during his eight years as president — as he even converted a tennis court at the White House into a basketball court.

Frederick said he expected interest to come from “sports collectors, history collectors and those who want to feel part of the legacy of President Obama.”

The Obamas did not put the items up for sale, the auction house said without elaboration.

The two items will go on public exhibition at the Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, Ireland, and at Julien’s in Beverly Hills ahead of the sale.

Men wanted in connection to NYC mom killed by stray bullet: video

The NYPD on Wednesday released surveillance footage of two men wanted in connection to the stray-bullet shooting death of a Queens mom.

Moments before Bertha Arriaga, 43, was shot in the neck in the bedroom of her family’s Jackson Heights apartment on 34th Avenue at 12:45 a.m. Wednesday, two men tried to steal a bicycle that was locked up on a street pole outside the building, cops said.

The footage released by cops shows two men – one on a scooter – attempting to saw the lock off the bicycle before they leave empty-handed.

“There appears to be a theft occurring at the time,” NYPD Deputy Chief Julie Morrill, the commanding officer detective of Patrol Borough Queens North, told reporters during a press conference at the nearby 115th Precinct stationhouse.

“The theft that was occurring ended,” Morrill explained. “The bike was not taken by these perpetrators. A shot rang out.”

Morrill said it remains “under investigation as to who fired that shot.”

That shot wound up killing Arriaga.

Arriaga’s 14-year-old son, Angel Gabriel, heard the gunfire and found his mother bleeding to death.

Suspects wanted in connection to the stray bullet homicide of Bertha Arriaga.

“He found her breathing, in the blood, on the floor,” the boy’s uncle, Javier Aguilar, 42, said. “He ran to daddy and say, ‘Mommy is on the floor!’ Daddy tried to do CPR and she was breathing, eyes open, a lot of blood on her head.”

Angel called 911 — but by the time police arrived, it was too late.

Emergency responders pronounced Arriaga dead at the scene.

Police believe the mom of three boys was killed by a stray bullet that flew through her window.

No arrests have been made.

Subway sandwiches don’t meet legal definition of ‘bread’: court

Subway sandwiches don't meet legal definition of 'bread': court

Ireland’s highest court isn’t sweet on tax breaks for footlongs.

The country’s Supreme Court ruled that the starch used in Subway sandwiches is too sugary to meet the definition of “bread” — a legal distinction that would have saved the firm some dough.

In deciding whether to give the fast-food chain a tax break for serving a “staple” food item, the five-judge panel ruled that the bread’s sugar-to-flour content is roughly five times too high to qualify, according to the Irish Independent.

For a company to be taxed zero percent, under the Value-Added Tax Act of 1972, the weight of sugar and fat in a bread product must not be more than 2 percent of the total weight of flour in the dough.

But the dough baked for Subway sandwiches has a sugar content of roughly 10 percent the weight of its flour content, the outlet reported.

In its decision, the court rejected arguments by a Subway franchise owner, Bookfinders in Galway, that the restaurant was not required to meet the standard on to-go items such as heated sandwiches, teas and coffees.

Bookfinders had demanded a refund for past years’ taxes in an appeal of a 2006 case.

While shooting down the legal challenge, Justice Donal O’Donnell said the definition of “bread” was established to distinguish the starch from other baked goods, such as cookies or brownies, that aren’t healthy enough to be considered essential.

All six of the company’s bread options — Italian white bread, Italian herbs and cheese, nine-grain wheat, hearty Italian, nine-grain multi-seed, and honey oat — were deemed too sugary by the court to qualify as bread.

According to nutrition facts posted by the Subway, a 6-inch white bread roll has 5 grams of sugar — similar to that of an Oreo cookie.
