Pop artist Robert Indiana, best known for his 1960s LOVE series, has died at his island home off the coast of Maine. He was 89.
Indiana died on Saturday from respiratory failure at his Victorian home in a converted Odd Fellows hall, a fraternal order lodge, where he had lived for years on Vinalhaven Island, said James Brannan, his attorney.

A bar employee and an off-duty San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputy wrestled an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle and a loaded 30-round magazine from a drunk man at a bar in downtown Redlands, California, early Sunday morning to help avoid what might have turned into a tragedy.
Eventually, police arrived and arrested 36-year-old Gilbert Manuel Arellano III for attempted assault with a deadly weapon.
A press release from the Redlands Police Department said that Arellano had reportedly already been drinking at a birthday party on Saturday night before going to The District, where he continued to drink alcoholic beverages into early Sunday morning.

Four Senate Democrats asked Scott Pruitt on Monday for details about a new legal defense fund to help the Environmental Protection Agency administrator as he weathers a series of federal ethics investigations.
Pruitt confirmed at a Senate hearing last week that people he did not identify have created the legal defense fund in his behalf, but he gave no specifics on its operation. Officials typically use such funds to help cover any legal bills for themselves and sometimes for others.

An upcoming report from the Justice Department's internal watchdog is expected to criticize senior FBI leaders for not moving quickly enough to review a trove of Hillary Clinton emails discovered late in the 2016 campaign, according to people familiar with findings.
The FBI's timing has been a sore point for Clinton supporters, who say then-director James Comey's announcement of the review less than two weeks before the Nov. 8, 2016, election contributed to her loss. The agency's findings affirming their decision not to pursue criminal charges against Clinton were disclosed two days before the vote — too late, her supporters say, to undo the damage.
Some FBI officials knew in September 2016 of the emails on former Rep. Anthony Weiner's laptop but the bureau did not obtain a warrant to review them until the following month
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials are reviewing an encounter between a Border Patrol agent and two U.S. citizens who were detained and questioned after speaking Spanish at a gas station in northern Montana, the agency said Monday.
Ana Suda told NBC News she and her friend Mimi Hernandez made a midnight run Wednesday for milk and eggs at a gas station convenience store in Havre, a small city about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from the U.S.-Canada border.
Both women are Mexican-American and fluent in Spanish.

Four former USC students Monday filed what is believed to be the first lawsuit against the university stemming from revelations of years-old misconduct complaints against Dr. George Tyndall, the longtime gynecologist at the university Student Health Center.
Attorneys for the plaintiffs, who are identified only as Jane Does, contend in the suit that Tyndall forced them to strip naked and groped them under the guise of medical treatment for his "sexual gratification.'' The suit also accuses the university of failing to properly respond to complaints about Tyndall.
"Plaintiffs are informed and believe, and on this basis allege, that defendant USC benefited financially from actively concealing myriad complaints of sexual abuse made by its female students against Tyndall by protecting its own reputation and financial coffers," according to the lawsuit.

Celebrity chef Mario Batali issued a new statement Monday in response to yet another accusation of sexual misconduct, the fifth in about six months, telling NBC News he "vehemently" denies "any allegations of sexual assault."
Batali stepped down from daily operations at his restaurant empire and cooking show "The Chew" in December after four women accused him of inappropriate touching over a period of 20 years. He has apologized for those encounters; a fifth accusation came Sunday night in a broadcast TV interview.
"My past behavior has been deeply inappropriate and I am sincerely remorseful for my actions," Batali said in the statement.
A deaf woman who is five months pregnant says a man punched her in the stomach and hit her service dog during a confrontation on an airplane as it arrived at a Florida airport.
Hazel Ramirez says she and her partner, Matthew Silvay, were confronted Thursday by Timothy Manley, who objected to their service dog, Zariel, a Great Dane.
Manley says the dog triggered his wife's allergies as the flight from Colorado Springs to Orlando was making its descent.

The Supreme Court says employers can prohibit their workers from banding together to dispute their pay and conditions in the workplace, an important victory for business interests.
The justices ruled 5-4 Monday, with the court's conservative members in the majority, that businesses can force employees to individually use arbitration, not the courts, to resolve disputes.
The outcome does not affect people represented by labor unions, but an estimated 25 million employees work under contracts that prohibit collective action by employees who want to raise claims about some aspect of their employment.

A North Carolina businessman suffering from severe mental illness left a meal with his family, got into his sport utility vehicle and then drove at high speed into the restaurant, killing his daughter and daughter-in-law and critically injuring other relatives, his pastor said Monday.
Roger Self had been treated for depression and anxiety that seemed to become more intense in the two and a half months preceding Sunday's deadly crash, said the Rev. Austin Rammell of Venture Church in Dallas, North Carolina. The pastor, who is a close family friend, said Self opened up about his problems about 10 weeks ago, when he asked his son to take his guns away from him.
"His family and close friends have intensely labored to try and get Roger help. We all feel a level of guilt," the pastor said at a news conference.

New CIA Director Gina Haspel pledged to send more spies into the field during her swearing-in Monday as President Donald Trump offered up praise for the rank-and-file, who felt snubbed during his first visit to the headquarters of the premier U.S. intelligence agency.
"We must learn from the past, but we cannot dwell in the past," said Haspel, whose ascent from undercover operative to the top job was challenged because of her role in a program to harshly detain and interrogate terror suspects after 9/11.
The technology can be as small as a suitcase, placed anywhere at any time, and it's used to track cell phones and intercept calls.
The News4 I-Team found dozens of potential spy devices while driving around Washington, D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia.
"While you might not be a target yourself, you may live next to someone who is. You could still get caught up," said Aaron Turner, a leading mobile security expert.
