The woman said she was driving on I-95 when she saw the man next to her on the bike. She told her son to grab her phone and take the video. 

"I passed him and couldn’t believe it, so I slowed down and my son took a short video and a picture of him," the driver said. "I slowed to about 50-60 mph [my son] took the video. 

"He looked completely stable on the bike – like he’d done it a million times – not a care in the world. He seemed very confident in his ability."

$120K in marijuana seized in Georgia drug bust, 6 arrested

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Six people have been arrested in a Georgia drug bust where more than $120,000 worth of marijuana was seized, and another suspect is sought.

The Savannah Morning News reported Monday that 22-year-old Nicholas Rion Hilliard is sought by authorities and may be in California. Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team spokesman Gene Harley says a joint investigation with the United States Postal Inspection Service into a drug trafficking ring started in May.

Harley says investigators determined the ring leaders were Hilliard and his father, 47-year-old Joseph Rion Hilliard, who was arrested. Over several months, investigators identified "stash houses" that were spreading marijuana from California throughout the county.

The investigators, Chatham County Aviation Unit and Savannah Police Department then exercised search warrants this month and found guns, the marijuana and $13,000 in cash.

Shooter was provoked in deadly Walmart parking lot argument, police say

An argument in the parking lot of a crowded metro Atlanta Walmart got physical before it turned deadly, according to police.

>> Read more trending news

Snellville police and Gwinnett County’s district attorney have released new details in the Sunday night shooting that killed Fadil Delkic, 49, of Lawrenceville. Troy Hunte, 27, of Grayson, faces a charge of voluntary manslaughter in connection with his death. Authorities also explained the rationale behind the current charges against Hunte, who had a brief, first-appearance court hearing Tuesday afternoon.

He is being held in the Gwinnett County jail without bond.

Witnesses at the Walmart on Scenic Highway in Snellville said it appeared the men were arguing over a parking space when a shot rang out just before 6 p.m. Sunday. Police later said Hunte’s fiancee, who has not been identified, began arguing with Delkic over how close his car came to her as she walked through the parking lot.

Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter said the same thing during a Tuesday morning interview.

“It appears from the review of the evidence and the statements of the witnesses that the defendant and his girlfriend were coming out of the Walmart store and crossing in the crosswalk, where the victim slightly pulled into the white striped lines,” Porter said. “... And that’s what initiated everything.”

“I believe that the defendant and his girlfriend crossed out of the crosswalk and turned back, and at that point the victim got out of the car,” Porter added.

Snellville police Lt. J. McKinney said in a statement that the argument between Hunte, Hunte’s fiancee and Delkic turned physical “when Mr. Hunte’s fiancee struck Mr. Delkic in the face.”

Soon after, Hunte pulled a handgun from his pocket, McKinney said. Delkic was shot once in the chest.

The gunfire sent people running for cover inside and outside the store.

Delkic was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Family members told Channel 2 that Delkic was a Bosnian refugee who survived prison during the Bosnian War in the 1990s.

Investigators worked with the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s office to decide on the voluntary manslaughter charge. According to an arrest warrant obtained by WSB-TV, Hunte was provoked.

“Hunte killed Delkic under circumstances that would otherwise be murder, but accused acted solely as a result of a sudden, violent, and irresistible passion resulting from serious provocation,” police said in the warrant.

Delkic’s family, meanwhile, has insisted he did nothing to provoke the shooting — and Porter described the charges against Hunte as “fluid.”

“Now as we review the case and as we get all the evidence, and particularly since it appears that this entire incident was on videotape, we may change the charges,” Porter said. 

The incident was caught on Walmart surveillance cameras, he said. At this point, any change in charges would likely come in the form of an indictment sought by Porter’s office.

The incident is still under investigation, McKinney said. Anyone who witnessed the shooting is asked to contact the Snellville Police Department at 770-985-3555 to provide a statement.

Boy tied up at night to prevent him from eating, law enforcement officials say

The Sheriff’s Office in Baker County, Florida, said an observant teacher raised the alarm, leading to the arrest of two people in a case of child abuse.

Deputies said a father is accused of tying a boy up at night to keep him from eating. They say his mother knew about it and didn’t intervene.

According to the arrest report, the boy goes to Westside Elementary School in Glenn St. Mary.

Thursday, the BCSO said his teacher noticed he had a cut and bruises on the left side of his face and immediately reported it to the school resource deputy.

“It is inhumane to me,” Sheriff Scotty Rhoden said of the case. “That’s just terrible, [the] things that they were doing to him.”

Rhoden said the boy had several injuries, some of them serious and requiring medical attention. He said the boy would be tied up at night in order to prevent him from eating.

Parents of the boy’s peers at Westside Elementary are horrified.

“I was in disbelief, for sure, because I know for me with my child I’m very protective over him, so I don’t know what goes through people’s minds,” said parent Rebecca Rhynehardt.

Deputies said the father, 39-year-old Kenneth Haley, would tie the boy up. The Sheriff’s Office said he’s facing child abuse charges, and that he was already on probation for a child neglect charge out of Jackson County.

They said the grandmother, 59-year-old Carmen Yeomans, knew and did nothing, so she’s charged with child neglect.

“It’s horrifying to think that any child would be treated that way,” said Baker County Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson. “It's just unimaginable for us.”

Baker County deputies and workers with the Florida Department of Children and Families descended on the home in Sanderson, Florida, removing the victim and three other children.

Their ages range from 3 to 7 years old. The BCSO said they’re safe in the care of DCF.

Haley is being held without bond, while Yeoman’s bond is $50,000.
