CHP: ‘Aggressive’ Man Approaching Gov. Newsom in Oakland Arrested

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A man was arrested after trying to approach Governor Gavin Newsom during an event in Oakland Thursday, authorities said.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Gov. Newsom “was approached by an aggressive individual.” The man was arrested by CHP officers after members of the governor’s security detail removed Newsom from the situation.

Newsom was in Oakland visiting small businesses to tout the state’s financial support for business owners hit hard by the pandemic.

The suspect was identified as 54-year-old Berkeley resident Serge Emanuel Benoit Chaumette Jr. He was booked at the Santa Rita Jail.

A CHP spokesperson would not confirm reports the governor had a water bottle thrown at him.

The CHP, which provides security to public officials, said it was investigating the incident.

Two Long-Lost Sisters Reunited In Tampa Bay

Two long lost sisters who had no idea the other existed for over 50 years are now reunited! 

Two Long-Lost Sisters Reunited In Tampa Bay

TAMPA, Fla. (CW44 News At 10) – Two long-lost sisters who had no idea the other existed for over 50 years are now reunited! They met for the very first time in Tampa this week.

Jeannie Oliva says “My sister didn’t know I existed.”

It was a surprise Barbara Carmichael and Jeannie Oliva could have never predicted.

Carmichael says it all started with some curiosity.

“My daughter was looking for her father and so when she said ‘Hey, I’m going to do a DNA test.’ I said ‘I will do it with you. Maybe i can find some family’ and sure enough, I did the 23 and Me and I got a hit,” said Carmichael.

Once Carmichael found out her sister she didn’t know about for over 50 years lived in Guatemala, she reached out.

“It was a great surprise because I didn’t know there was another sister around the world,” said Oliva.

But with the pandemic right around the corner, their plans got complicated.

“We finally connected in February of 2020. We’re all excited about getting to see each other over the summer, and things got shut down,” said Carmichael.

A year and a half later Oliva flew to Tampa

“Excited, excited,” said Oliva.

While in Florida, Oliva and Carmichael traveled and visited family, went to the beach, and got to know each other.

“God must have known we needed each other now and we are enjoying every minute that we can,” said Carmichael.

Through their DNA searches and investigations, Carmichael and Oliva found out they have three other siblings they didn’t know about in Cuba and New York, all with the same father, but it doesn’t stop there.

“I think we are on track to find another one or two,” said Carmichael.

“I just hope that somebody can listen to this story and maybe they can help us with more pieces of this big puzzle,” said Oliva.

Eventually their reunion came to an end. Oliva packed her bags on Thursday and Carmichael dropped her off at the airport to go back to Guatemala. With tears of joy in their eyes, they said goodbye.

“Even if we never saw each other again, we have each other’s heart,” said Carmichael.

Carmichael and Oliva say they will continue looking for any more long lost siblings and will be planning a family reunion again soon.
