WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is claiming victory following the adoption of a new NFL policy that could bring disciplinary action for players who kneel or make other protests during the national anthem. "You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing," Trump said in an interview that aired Thursday morning on "Fox & Friends" on Fox News.

Sherita Dixon-Cole, a 37-year-old woman from northeast Texas, was pulled over early Sunday by a Department of Public Safety officer who suspected her of driving while intoxicated.

When retired Marine Johnny "Joey" Jones sat down in a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia, he was told he could not stay on the ride. Jones, who served as a bomb technician, said he is used to making accommodations for his disability: He lost both of his legs at his knees when he stepped on an IED in 2010 in the Safar Bazaar in Afghanistan. Still, the 31-year-old veteran said, he had not seen the handicapped sign at the Six Flags near Atlanta on Sunday, and anyway, the ride was similar to ones that he had ridden at other theme parks.
