Florida man steals girlfriend's ring to propose to other girlfriend

He’ll be spending Valentine’s Day alone.

A Florida man is on the run after stealing one girlfriend’s old engagement ring so he could use it to propose to his other girlfriend, authorities said.

Joseph Davis, 48, is wanted on a grand theft charge after allegedly betraying two girlfriends he met on the dating site OKCupid, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Thursday.

Brown used the alias “Joe Brown” with one girlfriend, and “Marcus Brown” with the other, authorities said.

Girlfriend No. 1 — who lives in Orange City, and who had dated Davis since 2015 — told detectives she learned through some Facebook sleuthing that Davis, a convicted felon, was engaged to the second woman.

Worse, she saw on the second woman’s Facebook page that her rival was wearing an engagement ring and wedding band identical to her own from a previous marriage, according to the sheriff’s office.

She checked her jewelry box and found her rings and other items missing. About $6,270 in property had been stolen from her in all, officials said.

The girlfriend began contacting Davis’ fiancée — who lives in Orlando and who had begun dating him in 2016.

Soon, both women were commiserating and joining forces in turning on Davis and reporting him to the authorities.

Gallingly, the two woman learned that each had not only been lied to, but allegedly stolen from.

The second girlfriend reported her own laptop and jewelry went missing after Davis moved out of her apartment.

She also recalled Davis once taking her to the first girlfriend’s house in Orange City. The first girlfriend was away at work at the time.

Davis claimed to the second girlfriend that the home was his and even asked her to move in there with him. The second girlfriend packed up her own apartment and was ready to move in, but then Davis told her the deal fell through, officials said.

Davis has a previous rap sheet that includes an active warrant in Oregon for a hit-and-run crash, domestic assault and possession of cocaine.

10 rockets strike Iraqi base hosting US troops

Ten rockets struck an Iraqi base hosting US troops on Wednesday morning, security sources said.

No fatalities were immediately reported in the attack on Ain al-Asad air base, which also houses Iraqi forces, the sources said.

A Baghdad Operations Command official told Reuters that 13 rockets were fired at the base from about 5 miles away.

Monday’s attack is the second time in less than a month US forces were targeted on Iraqi soil.

A Feb. 15 rocket attack against a US military base in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

That strike led to a retaliatory bombing by the US last week on a complex inside Syria used by an Iran-supported militia.

The Biden administration said the airstrikes were intended to deter future attacks on US troops in Iraq.

Investigators retrieve 'black box' data from Tiger Woods' SUV

Investigators working to determine the cause of Tiger Woods’ rollover crash have obtained data stored in the “black box” of the luxury SUV he was driving, a report said.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant to gather the information, which could show the vehicle’s speed before the collision and whether its brakes were applied, authorities told USA Today.

“We’re trying to determine if a crime was committed,” Sheriff’s Deputy John Schloegl told the news outlet.

“If somebody is involved in a traffic collision, we’ve got to reconstruct the traffic collision. If there was any reckless driving, if somebody was on their cell phone or something like that. If there was no crime, we close out the case, and it was a regular traffic collision.”

Woods was driving a 2021 Genesis GV80 alone when he veered across the median on Hawthorne Boulevard in Rancho Palos Verdes, went off the road and struck a tree.

The legendary golfer broke several bones in his lower right leg and is still recovering in the hospital.

A forensic car expert had told USA Today that it appeared Woods was not paying attention in the moments before the devastating crash.

“To me, this is like a classic case of falling asleep behind the wheel, because the road curves and his vehicle goes straight,” Jonathan Cherney, a consultant who serves as an expert witness in court cases, told the news outlet.

Felix Lee, an accident reconstruction expert, told the outlet: “My feeling is that speed wasn’t that much of an issue. It was just some kind of inattention that caused the curb strike.”
