  • One of the nation's largest Pepsi bottlers has filed suit against PepsiCo over its franchise territory. The Birmingham-based Buffalo Rock Co. says in a news release it has tried for years without success to resolve differences with PepsiCo. The bottler says it filed suit in state court in Birmingham on Tuesday. Buffalo Rock says the larger company has violated its franchise agreements and intruded into its exclusive territories. It says it is suing PepsiCo and others. The lawsuit isn't yet available in Alabama's online court files, and the New York-based PepsiCo didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment. Buffalo Rock was founded in 1901 and has about 2,100 employees. It calls itself the nation's largest family-owned Pepsi-Cola bottler, operating 14 distribution centers in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
  • A Georgia teacher is accused of punching a middle-school student in the face and slamming him onto a cafeteria table during lunch. News outlets report 45-year-old Kendrick Monroe was arrested Monday and charged with a misdemeanor count of simple battery. Officials say the Dekalb County District teacher will remain on paid leave, pending the outcome of an investigation. Authorities say Monroe assaulted the boy Friday inside the cafeteria at Miller Grove Middle School. District officials declined to say what led to the altercation between the student and teacher, citing the ongoing investigation. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Monroe has been employed by the district since 2000, beginning as a substitute teacher before he was hired full-time as a teacher in 2005. It's unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.

  • Police told Channel 2 Action News an injured officer was rushed to an emergency room after a 'dangerous' suspect resisted arrest and grabbed a weapon from the officer's partner. Police said they were trying to arrest Mark Anthony Antunez, 20, on felony drug charges when he resisted, fought the officers and grabbed an officer's Taser. The fight happened Monday morning outside a home on Burbank Circle, according to police. According to an arrest warrant, “Antunez gained control of a Taser, discharged the weapon -- incapacitating the officer.” The Taser hit the officer, identified as Quentin Hale, twice; once on the body and then once in the groin area, police said. Channel 2’s Cobb County bureau chief Chris Jose learned the officer is a father and a veteran of the Smyrna Police Department.

'We’re not safe again, if you’re going to attack the officer, what about me?' neighbor Edwin John said. Jose knocked on the door where police said Antunez was before the incident happened, but no one answered.  Police said first responders rushed Hale to the hospital. He is now back home with his family. A spokesman with the Smyrna Police Department said the alleged actions of Antunez made it dangerous for officers.  Police said Antunez didn’t reach for the officer’s gun but said anything was possible when he resisted arrest. Antunez is facing several charges including obstruction and aggravated assault of an officer. He's at the Cobb County Jail with no bond.
