15-Year-Old Boy Dies in His Sleep After ‘Surfing’ on Roof of an Uber — Leading to Driver’s Arrest

A New York Uber driver is accused of manslaughter after three teenage passengers who’d been drinking allegedly paid him to let them climb onto the roof of his moving car — and then one of them fell off and died, PEOPLE confirms.

The driver, 24-year-old Danyal Cheema, of Huntington Station, was charged Monday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Ryan Mullen, of Cold Spring Harbor.

Cheema is being held in lieu of $ 200,000 bond following his arrest on Sunday. It was unclear if he’d entered a plea. His attorney, Christopher Renfroe, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In the incident shortly after midnight on Sept. 23, Cheema was behind the wheel of his 2010 Toyota Highlander as an Uber driver when he picked up the three teen boys in Huntington, after they had been drinking, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

On the way to their destination, the boys allegedly offered Cheema $ 70 cash — and gave him $ 40 — if he’d let them climb onto the car’s roof at an intersection so they could “car surf” as the vehicle took off, the investigation revealed.

Mullen and a second teen then remained on the roof as Cheema drove along Cove Road, with the third boy recording them in a Snapchat video.

Mullen’s subsequent fall led to head trauma “which resulted in his death,” according to the prosecutor’s office. Although Cheema brought all three boys to their destination at a home in Huntington, Mullen “succumbed to his injuries in his sleep later that day,” the prosecutor’s office said.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

“This was an incredibly bad decision by the defendant and a bad decision by the boys involved,” District Attorney Timothy Sini said in a news release. “But at the end of the day, this defendant is an adult who was contracted to safely bring those boys home and he failed to do that.”

“We have a culture right now where the mindset is, ‘How can we outdo each other?’ Particularly among young people on social media, and we often see the tragic consequences of that,” Sini said. “A lot of young people think they are invincible and that’s something we need to keep drilling in their heads that this could happen to anyone when you engage in this kind of conduct.”

He added: “In this day and age, we often encourage people to use ride sharing services because it’s a safe alternative to drinking and driving. These boys were doing that; they were drinking that night and they made the right decision to contract with a car service.”

“Unfortunately the defendant made a reckless decision and engaged in reckless conduct that caused the death of a young boy, and he will be held accountable for that,” Sini said.

In his obituary, Ryan was remembered as a “loving son” and “fierce friend.”

He “lived life so large and his time here was short,” his family wrote. “God had other plans.”

Cheema faces five to 15 years in prison if convicted of the manslaughter charge. He is due back in court on Friday.

Former College Football Player Arrested After His Teammate Dies of an Opioid Overdose

Seven months after a promising defensive lineman failed to turn up to practice and was found dead by his concerned teammates, a former player from his college team has been arrested.

On Friday, one-time Rice University football player Stuart “Mooch” Mouchantaf was charged with supplying 21-year-old Blain Padgett pills containing an opioid 10,000 times more powerful than morphine.

The 25-year-old ex-player was allegedly preparing to flee the country before officers took him into custody on Thursday, ABC 13 reports.

The arrest follows the March overdose death of teammate Padgett. The college athlete allegedly believed he was buying Hydrocodone, a prescription narcotic painkiller, from Mouchantaf,  Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement Friday.

Instead, the footballer took pills that contained Carfentanil — an opioid whose legal amount is reportedly “invisible to the human eye” and was originally intended to be an elephant tranquilizer, the D.A. alleges.

In June, three months after his passing,  the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that the toxic effects of Carfentanil — which reportedly causes the brain to stop breathing — caused Padgett to die in his sleep, ABC 13 reports.

RELATED: Former Clemson Football Player C.J. Fuller Dies Suddenly at 22

Padgett’s parents, Mical and Windi, believed their son knew better than to take drugs from someone else.

“He knew that he should not have been taking it, but he did so,” Mical told the outlet, noting that the poor decision “cost him his life.”

“I know if he was here, he would say, ‘Hey, I take responsibility for this,’” Mical continued.

Windi added: “Blain knew about choices like drinking and driving and knew about choices, but I think that this is something that is fairly new, at least it’s new to us, that you don’t take anything from anyone unless a doctor has prescribed it for you, period.”

The young men played together in 2015 when Mouchantaf was a redshirt senior and Padgett was a freshman, reports USA Today. During his three seasons at Rice University, Mouchantaf totaled 51 tackles. Meanwhile, Padgett was considered “a key player” with a “commanding presence” for the team’s defensive front-line.

Following Mouchantaf arrest, Rice University released a statement to the news channel, thanking authorities for their work on the case.

“We’re deeply saddened to hear about the latest developments in the investigation in the death of Blain Padgett, whose family continues to be foremost in our thoughts,” they wrote. “We want to thank the Houston Police Department investigators assigned to this case for their hard work in the wake of this tragedy. In light of the fact that charges have just been filed, any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.”

After Mouchantaf was taken into custody and questioned on Thursday, a judge set his bond at $ 250,000 once police discovered that he had purchased a one-way ticket to Lebanon.

According to ABC 13, Mouchantaf — who has family in the country and is now considered a flight risk — must wear an ankle monitor and give up his U.S. passport.

The former player has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance causing death and the second-degree felony could result in a prison sentence of anywhere from five to 99 years if Mouchantaf is found guilty, the D.A. said.

At this time, it is not clear if he has retained legal counsel. He is due to appear in court on Monday.

Queen Elizabeth’s Doctor Dies in Tragic Cycling Accident in London

Queen Elizabeth’s longtime doctor has died in a tragic road accident in London.

Peter Fisher — a physician to the Queen for around 17 years — was killed when his bicycle collided with a truck in High Holborn, Central London, at around 9.30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The driver of the truck stopped at the scene and is currently assisting the Metropolitan Police with their investigation. The incident occurred on national Cycle to Work Day in Britain.

Buckingham Palace confirmed to PEOPLE that the Queen has been informed of Fisher’s death but had no further comment to make.

“He was much respected as a good doctor who saw homeopathy as complementary to medical care,” Sir Marcus Setchell, former surgeon-gynecologist to the Queen, told the London Evening Standard about the death of his colleague. “We are all shocked by his tragic loss.”

Gill Gaskin, medical director at University College Hospital, London — where Fisher, 67, worked for more than 35 years within The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM) — added that staff were “shocked and saddened” at his death.

“Peter was a highly regarded colleague and friend of many at the RLHIM,” Gaskin added in the written statement. “He was committed to holistic and compassionate care for his patients.”

“He will be greatly missed by his colleagues and patients alike.”

The royal family has used homeopathy (a holistic, natural approach to medicine) for generations. In 1920, the Duke of York, later King George VI, became patron of RLHIM, while Frederic Quin, who founded the hospital in 1849, was once physician to Prince Leopold, Queen Victoria’s father-in-law. The Queen continued her father’s patronage when she assumed the throne in 1953 and Prince Charles is known to be a big fan of using alternative therapies to treat both himself and his farm animals.

During his life, Fisher combined homeopathy and other forms of complementary medicine with conventional medicine, specializing in the treatment of rheumatological complaints including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and soft tissue syndromes such as fibromyalgia.

He also treated skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis and a range of general medical problems for both NHS and private patients.

“It is with deep sadness that Pete’s family and friends would like to recognize and honor the loving man, father, son and dear friend who has been tragically taken from us,” his family said in a statement released through Scotland Yard.

“He was devoted to his cause, a global authority in his field. We are all devastated by his sudden loss, as he had touched deeply so many of our lives.”

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are currently investigating the incident. No arrests have so far been made.

Michael Howells, Production Designer in Film and Fashion, Dies at 61

LONDON — Michael Howells, the fashion, film and theatre production designer whose work ranged from the dramatic runway sets for John Galliano’s Dior shows to the period backdrops for ITV’s “Victoria,” has died, according to his company Michael Howells Studio.
Howells, who wove his passion for history, travel, literature and the arts into his dramatic sets and costumes, died Wednesday of complications from a heart condition. He was 61, and is survived by his mother, a sister and a nephew.
A tall, gentle and elegant man with a razor-sharp intellect and fertile imagination, regularly collaborated with Galliano on the designer’s own label and at Dior. He also worked with Christian Lacroix and Alexander McQueen.
In 2007, Galliano told WWD that he would brief Howells — and then let him go wild. “He makes the magic happen and works out how to find a merry-go-round and transform Stade de France into a tumbledown Hamptons holiday,” said the designer. The carrousel from 1900 that Howells eventually found had to be dismantled and brought to the show piece by piece, by crane.
Galliano was referring to the October, 2006 show for his label, which was inspired by “Grey Gardens.” With help from Howells, Galliano had arranged a seaside

Nancy Sinatra Sr., Frank Sinatra’s First Wife, Dies at 101

Nancy Sinatra Sr., the first wife of the legendary Rat Pack crooner Frank Sinatra and mother of his three children, died on Friday. She was 101.

Her eldest daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jr., confirmed the news on Twitter — writing, “My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101. She was a blessing and the light of my life. 😢💙.”

On her website, Nancy Jr. revealed that her mother died at 6:02 p.m.

“This may be the saddest post I’ve ever had to write,” Nancy Jr. said. “She fought hard to remain on this earth but time got the better of her.”

“Godspeed, Momma and thank you for everything you did for us and for the world,” she added.

Reps for Nancy Jr. did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Nancy Sr.’s death comes two decades after the death of “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” who died in 1998 at the age of 82 of a heart attack.

Born Nancy Barbato, she met Frank when they were both teenagers. The pair married in 1939 in Jersey City, New Jersey — Nancy Sr.’s hometown.

They’d live there as newlyweds for years, with Frank working as a singing waiter to get his music career started and Nancy Sr. working as a secretary while raising daughter Nancy Jr., born in 1940, and son Frank Jr., born in 1944.

Eventually, the family would move to Los Angeles, where Frank would find fame on the charts and on the movie screen. Daughter Christina Sinatra, known as Tina, was born in 1948.

But a headline-making extramarital affair drove the couple apart. They divorced in 1951, with Frank famously marrying actress Ava Gardner just weeks after the papers were signed. After that, he’d have marriages to Mia Farrow and Barbara Marx.

At the time of their divorce, Nancy Sr. was 33. She was given custody of their children, their home, a Cadillac and a percentage of his wealth.

She devoted her life to her children, PEOPLE reported in 1986, but made no secret of her desire to reconcile with their father.

Nancy Sr. never remarried, preferring to retain the status of a divorced woman and be Mrs. Nancy Sinatra for life rather than lose the Sinatra name.

“Once you’ve had the best…” she told friends.

Nancy Sr. is survived by Nancy Jr., 78, and Tina, 70. Frank Jr. died of cardiac arrest in 2016 at the age of 72.
