Deputy Nicholas Kehagias had no search warrant to enter or arrest warrant to serve on residents of John Livingston’s home

When Livingston attempted to shut the door, Kehagias told him: ‘This is not how this works,’ according to a fellow deputy who was on the scene

Months before the shooting, Kehagias posted profanity-laced statements on Facebook and joked that napalm ‘wouldn’t burn hot enough’ to improve his patrol zone

Former Duke safety Jeremy Cash ready to hear his name in NFL Draft

Jeremy Cash, a former Duke safety, has a chance to hear his name called Friday night, during the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft. If not then, expect him to be selected on Saturday, during rounds four through seven. CBS projects Cash to be a third-round pick. NFL.com projects him to come off the board in the fourth or fifth round. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has him ranked No. 140 on his big board, and ESPN senior writer Todd McShay has him at No. 110. Cash wasn’t in ESPN’s latest three-round mock draft.
