Brooklyn Center man admits spraying gunfire at Minneapolis bar, killing

He was mad after the bouncer kicked him out, prosecutors said.

A Brooklyn Center man has admitted to indiscriminately shooting into a crowd outside a north Minneapolis bar and killing a man.

Anthony E. Cannady, 48, of Brooklyn Center, pleaded guilty Monday in Hennepin County District Court to one count of second-degree murder and three counts of second-degree assault in connection with the shooting of Steven L. Fields, 42, on Sept. 7 in the parking lot of Cliff and Norm's bar in the 2000 block of N. Washington Avenue.

The plea deal between prosecutors and the defense calls for Cannady to be sentenced to a term of 11⅔ years. With credit for time in jail since his arrest, Cannady will serve about 7⅓ years in prison and the balance on supervised release. Sentencing is scheduled for July 10.

Bond reduced to $150K for Prairie Rattlers member accused of manslaughter in May death

A judge reduced the bond for a 26-year-old man accused of manslaughter to $150,000, on Tuesday, June 11, but refused to lower it as much as a defense attorney requested.

Justin Crites was charged last week with manslaughter, a class B felony, in connection with the death of 57-year-old Jay LePage in early May following an altercation outside The Shop Bar in Williston. On Friday, a judge set Crites' bond at $250,000.

On Tuesday, Jeff Nehring, who represented Crites at a bond hearing, asked Northwest District Judge Kirsten Sjue to lower the bond to $20,000 and order Crites to wear a GPS monitor. Nehring said the original bond was too high for multiple reasons.

Police: Punch from a Prairie Rattler member caused 57-year-old to hit his head on the sidewalk after an argument at The Shop Bar in May

An argument between two women at a bar in downtown Williston led to a series of events that ended with a 57-year-old dying days later in a Minot hospital.

Police say that 26-year-old Justin Crites, also known as Preacher, attacked Jay LePage early on the morning of May 4 at The Shop Bar. Crites was charged Friday with manslaughter, a class B felony.

LePage had a broken jawbone and a preliminary autopsy found the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the back of the head, according to court documents.

LePage and his wife, Colleen, had gone to The Shop just before closing time early on May 4 to have a drink, and outside the bar, Colleen LePage got into an argument with Jennifer Young, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed in Northwest District Court. During the argument, Crites stepped in and told Colleen LePage not to disrespect his family.

Lake George region revved up for Americade

Annual bike rally runs through June 8

(28 pics and video) --- LAKE GEORGE – Fred Howard has a motto.

"There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes."

That theory sustained him for a rainy 800-mile ride on his Honda Silver Wing motorcycle – from Ann Arbor, Michigan to Lake George. His Gore Tex jacket and pants and waterproof boots, along with occasional stops at coffee shops during the heaviest downpours, helped him survive the journey to the shores of the Queen of American Lakes for the 37th annual Americade.

"I love coming out here," Howard said as he sat perched on his cherry-colored bike. "New York is the best kept secret. Most riders don't want to come out here, but the riding is absolutely amazing. The whole area is wonderful."

Some Bikefest attendees unsure if they will return to festival

Major Cook kicked his feet up as he relaxed on his motorcycle beside Club Off the Hook Sunday night in Atlantic Beach.

“It’s less active,” said the Black Bike Week veteran who’s attended for more than a dozen years. “That’s a bad thing.”

He blamed a heavier police presence and additional restrictions for what he thought was a smaller crowd in the town than in years past.

The member of Harlem Big Shots drove his bike about 14 hours to the area for Atlantic Beach Bikefest. His motorcycle club has roughly 300 members and about a fifth of them rolled into the Grand Strand for the gathering.

“I’m not coming back,” he said, before adding, “I said the same thing last year.”

Elsewhere on Atlantic Street, Tyrone Walker sat on his own bike with his young son Trey, who’s developed a fondness for motorcycles.

'Unwanted:' Once again, bikers flock to Myrtle Beach. Once again, some feel targeted

Downtown Myrtle Beach was popping Thursday night as bikers blasted Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” up and down Ocean Boulevard, along with Drake, Nelly, 2Pac and other hip hop and rap mainstays. 

Women on the sidewalks swayed their hips if the music was right. One man even hopped off his bike for an impromptu dance performance in the middle of Ocean Boulevard.

Paul Lynch leaned back onto his Big Dog motorcycle just outside the Diplomat Motel and smiled as bikes rumbled past, enjoying the last night on Ocean Boulevard before dealing with the threat of the 23-mile traffic loop.

The Bennettsville biker smiled.  

“It never gets old,” he said. “There’s something new every year.”

Despite their merriment, some bikers remain frustrated.

Music nearly drowned out Lynch’s voice as he vented about changes he’s noticed implemented in the boulevard area.
