Also, three Memphis Fire Department personnel who responded to the beating have been fired, the department said Monday.
Fallout from the deadly police beating of Tyre Nichols now includes a sixth Memphis officer removed from duties, demands for more criminal charges against officers and calls for nationwide police reform.

Schlapp, who organizes the influential Conservative Political Action Conference, denied the allegations through his lawyer. The accuser, described by the Times as a longtime Republican political aide, is now suing Schlapp for defamation and conspiracy over the alleged sexual assault.
Since the Beast story broke, Matt and Mercedes, who were regulars on Fox News and Fox Business, have disappeared from the air. Mercedes, who served in former President Donald Trumps White House and on his unsuccessful 2020 campaign, was last on the air the morning of Jan. 6, while Matt hasnt appeared on either network since Jan. 4.
Fox has yet to cover the groping allegation. The network did not respond to a request for comment on the absence of the Schlapps from the air.

BOB WOODWARD, an individual, and PARAMOUNT GLOBAL, a Delaware

JURY TRIAL DEMANDED
The media today probably does not dig deeply enough or spend sufficient time on stories. The best way to ensure that sources will be open and honest is to treat them fairly. This is an excerpt from a response provided by journalist Bob Woodward posted in a Questions and Answers section on his website, bobwoodward.com. When it came to treating President Trump fairly, Mr. Woodward talked the talk, but he failed to walk the walk.
This case centers on Mr. Woodwards systematic usurpation, manipulation, and exploitation of audio of President Trump gathered in connection with a series of interviews conducted by Mr. Woodward. Said audio was protected material, subject to various limitations on use and distributionas a matter of copyright, license, contract, basic principles of the publishing industry, and core values of fairness and consent. In usurping, manipulating, and exploiting such material, Mr. Woodward has acted in concert with (i) SSI, a major publishing company which brings the work of many authors, including Woodward, to hundreds of countries and territories, and (ii) SSIs parent company, Paramount. Individually and collectively, these entities have systematically, blatantly, and unlawfully usurped President Trumps copyright interests, his contractual rights, and the rights he holds as an interviewee,1 through the publication of an audiobook (and other works, as set forth below) predicated upon the subject audiosolely for their own financial gain and without any accounting or recompense to him.
But 150 years later, the tunnel that runs under some of Baltimores residential neighborhoods is more of a chokepoint than a lifeline. Theres only one tube, and trains need to slow down to just 30 mph (48 kilometers per hour) to navigate a tight turn on the southern end.
Its a problem that President Joe Biden knows well, having commuted from Delaware to Washington on Amtrak for decades while serving as a U.S. senator. Last week he recalled walking the length of the tunnel, illuminated only by lights on a string as water dripped from the roof.
Theres a great worry, he said, that part of it could collapse.
This is why there will never be "real" high rail in the northeast corridor. You have to build completely new infrastructure for trains running at 250-300 mph, not jury rig something that's 175 years old.
Either way, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul continues to twist over what to do after her own party last week rejected Hector LaSalle as chief judge of the state Court of Appeals New Yorks highest court an embarrassing loss for the Democratic governor in the initial weeks of her first full term.
Hochul has been far from decisive on her next steps, warning reporters Tuesday not to make assumptions about her contemplativeness. A fight over a chief judge nomination in New York is unique and reminiscent of the fights over U.S. Supreme Court nominees in Congress not in a Democratic-controlled statehouse.
Youre jumping ahead in your own analysis, Hochul said after an unrelated event in Albany. Youre making an assumption that I have not stated to be factual that were going down a certain path. I recommend you dont do that because you will all know everything you need to know in due process and due time.

Rishi Sunak has sacked the Conservative party chair, Nadhim Zahawi, after he was found to have breached the ministerial code by failing to declare the HMRC investigation into his tax affairs.
An investigation by the prime ministers ethics adviser, Sir Laurie Magnus, concluded that Zahawi had made a serious breach of the code by not telling officials he was under investigation by the tax body when he was appointed chancellor by Boris Johnson.
He had also failed to officially declare that he paid a settlement to HMRC for tax avoidance when he was given cabinet positions by Liz Truss last September and when Sunak made him Tory chair and minister without portfolio in September.
His departure comes after a damaging few weeks for Sunak, who had pledged integrity, professionalism and accountability at every level of his government on entering No 10 but was facing growing calls to sack Zahawi over his tax affairs.
