But he says later that day, he and a bunch of co-workers felt awful.

“I started getting really bad stomach cramps, and the only food I ate I threw up," the employee said.

“We know that a large number of people, about 60 that we've had reports of so far, possibly more, have gone to local emergency departments with symptoms of foodborne illness," said Logan Boss with the Georgia Department of Public Health.

The owner would not go on camera on the advice of his lawyer, but while Petersen was at the restaurant, he saw employees scrubbing the place from top to bottom.

In the meantime, the Toyo Tire worker said it was a Thanksgiving meal he'll never forget.

“Everything I ate for three days, I threw up. So, finally last night, my wife made me go to the hospital. When I did, they diagnosed me with salmonella," the employee told Petersen.

The attorney for Angelo's Pizza said the owner and his family are heartbroken over this and offer deepest sympathies to those affected.

Police search for thieves carjacking UPS trucks, stealing packages

Police are searching for at least two people they say are robbing delivery trucks and getting away with packages in Atlanta.

>> Read more trending news

Police said the thieves watch for UPS trucks to leave distribution centers, then carjack them and steal the packages.

“It’s like they took the script right off of a movie and that’s why it’s important that we get these guys off the street,” Atlanta police Detective Benjamin King said.

A surveillance photo shows a possible suspect who police say may have been part of a carjacking and armed robbery of a UPS driver earlier this month.

The driver had just pulled off from a distribution center on Fulton Industrial Boulevard on Oct. 30 around 10 a.m.

As the UPS driver pulled up to the intersection of Fulton Industrial and Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, someone opened his passenger door.

“He said he saw his passenger door slide open and he saw a black male brandish a weapon, then jump inside of his UPS vehicle,” King said.

Police said the robber forced the driver to take him to an abandoned apartment complex near Hyacinth Avenue.

Investigators said there was an empty U-Haul truck there waiting.

“At that point in time they had the UPS driver lay to the ground where they pointed a weapon to the back of his head, then they started to unload the stuff from the UPS truck to the U-Haul truck,” King said.

As police were investigating that case, a group of people did the same thing in the same area to a different UPS driver Tuesday morning.

“It’s very similar and we are actually looking into it right now,” King said.

No drivers were injured in the robberies. 

If you recognize the man in the photo, call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.

AR-15 raffled off by youth football league in North Carolina

A raffle to give away an AR-15 was streamed live on Facebook with the Optimist pee wee football team from Stanley, North Carolina.

>> Read more trending news

The money was to help the team go on a trip and players were encouraged to thank those who bought a ticket to possibly win the AR-15.

"It just blew my mind, right," a father, Brandon Jenkins, said.

Willard Whitted is a gun owner, but he said this was a bad idea.

"Thought it was terrible that they would even think of doing something like that," Whitted said.

He said scores of people are killed when a gun of that type gets into the wrong hands.

"Find something else to raffle off," he said.

"I just donated the money," Mark Kee, who gave cash to help raise money.

He did not buy a ticket in the raffle.

"Where are the adults in charge of this?” Kee said. “Have they been watching the news? Do they know what's going on?"

The football coach, Ron Nolan, said a pawn shop owner donated the gun.

"Nothing is done illegally,” Nolan said. “It will change hands to a law-abiding citizen that passes a serious background check."

Damien Lockridge's son played on the team last year and believes raffling off the gun is the right thing to do.

He said the team uses the money from the raffle to help families pay for a trip to a playoff.

"They have to raise money somehow,” Lockridge said. “This is the only way to do it. I think it’s a great idea."

Firefighters help paramedic beat up estranged wife's friend, police say

Two firefighters and a paramedic are facing charges after authorities accused them of breaking into a home in Eustis, Florida, Monday night and assaulting the people inside.

>> Read more trending news

Police said the victim told her husband, the paramedic, that their marriage was over and he had to move out a few weeks ago.

Investigators said Michael Amedeo got two of his firefighter friends, Michael Downs and Cody Wages, to help him attacked his estranged wife and her male friend.

Investigators said Wages and Downs pushed their way into the home and attacked the man.

Police said Amedeo joined in on the attack and the three men allegedly pulled the friend out of the home and beat him up in the yard.

The wife tried to call 911, but Amedeo grabbed the phone and threw it, according to police.

Amedeo is also facing domestic violence charges.

Amedeo is a former Lake County firefighter, but sources told Channel 9 he now works as a paramedic.

Wages works for Osceola County Fire Rescue and Downs works for Eustis Fire and Rescue.

Killer details brutal murder, final minutes of NY jogger in police video

The accused killer of New York jogger Karina Vetrano was in court Monday, and a videotaped confession detailed the violet final moments of Vetrano’s life as her family listened and sobbed, the New York Post reported.

>> Read more trending news

Chanel Lewis, 21, calmly confessed to killing Vetrano on Aug. 2, 2016 in a video that was played during a pre-trial hearing Monday to determine if it will be admissible as evidence. Police claim Lewis killed the 30-year-old woman while she out running in Spring Creek Park in Howard Beach, Queens.

The attack was brutal. Lewis reportedly broke her teeth and kept beating her until she lost consciousness, then strangled her. He told police, “I was mad; I saw red.”

Lewis said he grabbed Vetrano as she ran by him and that she clawed at his face as he hit her five times, rendering her unconscious.

“She didn’t yell. She was finished,” Lewis reportedly said in the video. “I finished her off, I strangled her. She fell into the puddle and drowned. I got up and wiped off the blood. And she was calm, she was in the pool [of water]. It was like all the way over [her face].”

Before he confessed, Lewis told a detective that he was sorry for what he did and that he wanted to change his life. He insisted that he did not sexually assault Vetrano, even she was found with her jogging shorts pulled down.

“I didn’t do any of the stuff they said, sexual assault and stuff like that,” he told cops, the Post reported.

In the video, Lewis also seemed to think that even though he had admitted to killing Vetrano, he would be able to go on with his life and not face jail time.

“I can straighten out my stuff?” he asked the prosecutor. “Well you’re the DA right? Where do we go from here? Is there a restitution program or something?”

Lewis was asked why he attacked Vetrano, and he gave the perplexing response: “Because a guy moved into [his] house and the neighborhood.”

The victim’s father, Philip Vetrano, said he felt “a lot of anger” and that he lashed out at Lewis’ relatives before he and his family left court in an unmarked police car, the Post reported.

Lewis’ family did not answer questions, the Post reported.

Trump supports embattled Senate candidate Roy Moore, ‘He totally denies it’

President Donald Trump finally addressed sexual assault and harassment allegations against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore Tuesday while speaking to reporters ahead of his departure for Mar-a-Lago, essentially saying he supports Moore in spite of the accusations.

“We don’t need a liberal Democrat in that seat,” the president said, referring to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vacant U.S. Senate seat that Moore is running for, and adding that Moore “totally denies” the accusations.

Trump also said, “40 years is a long time,” referring to when the alleged incidents with the underage girls happened.

The president went on to encourage voters not to support Democratic candidate Doug Jones, adding that he is soft on crime and on border protection.

While Trump did not say whether he believes Moore is innocent, he did suggest he’s deciding whether to campaign for him.

Trump’s comments came on the heals of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s apparent endorsement of Roy earlier this week.

“I’m telling you we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway said. “And the media — if the media were really concerned about all these allegations, and that’s what this was truly about … Al Franken would be on the ash heap of bygone half-funny comedians. He wouldn’t be here on Capitol Hill. He still has his job. What’s Bob Menendez doing back here? That’s the best my state of New Jersey can do?”

Moore has been accused by seven women of sexual misconduct. With the exception of one woman who was 18 at the time, all of his accusers were underage when he allegedly sexually harassed or assaulted them with the youngest being just 14 years old at the time. One of his accusers was even in the same high school sophomore class as his wife, whom Moore admitted to first noticing when she was 15 or 16-years-old when she was performing in a dance recital.

“When I was deputy district attorney, many years before we got married, I saw her at a dance recital and I was standing, oh, at the back of the auditorium and I saw her up front,” he recalled at the time. “I remember her name, it was Kayla Kisor.

Names, phone numbers and email address were among the data stolen. Around 600,000 driver’s license numbers belonging to Uber drivers were also compromised in the October 2016 breach.

Uber executives reportedly concealed the hack for over a year and have been terminated, according to BuzzFeed.

Uber’s current CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, criticized the company’s handling of the data theft in a blog post that said there’s no evidence the stolen information has been misused.

The company released a statement Tuesday on the 2016 attack.

Single mother, actress Jennifer Garner says she "would not have chosen this life"

Actress Jennifer Garner ended her relationship with husband Ben Affleck in 2015, but the actress said she’s still “not interested in dating” other men.

“I would not have chosen this life for myself or for my kids,” Garner told Australia’s News.com.au.

“I would not choose to be single or be in this position. It’s something that we are working through. I haven’t been on a date and I am not interested in dating. People want to set me up and I am just like, ‘No thank you!’,” she said.

Garner also commented on the recent wave of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood, which Affleck himself was caught up in when it was revealed that he had clumsily groped an MTV presenter in 2003.

“We can’t lump all men into [the same category],” she said. “We can’t just assume that every man has done something awful or that every man is guilty; due process is important and has to take place.”

Garner and Affleck separated in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage — although the divorce was not officially finalized until 2017. No specific reason was given for the split, but multiple reports of Affleck’s infidelity began to emerge in the aftermath, one of which claimed Affleck had been having an affair with the nanny of their three children, Christine Ouzounian — an allegation Affleck denied.

Another accusation alleged that Affleck and his current partner, “Saturday Night Live” producer Lindsay Shookus, started seeing each other long before they became official and while they were still married to their respective spouses.

'Saturday Night Live' women defend Sen. Al Franken after groping allegations

More than 30 women who worked with Sen. Al Franken on “Saturday Night Live,” defended the embattled lawmaker in an open later Tuesday, writing that while working with him “not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior.”

The women, including former SNL cast members Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman, writers and producers, wrote that they felt “compelled to stand up for Al Franken” in the wake of allegations that he forced himself on Los Angeles news anchor Leeann Tweeden in 2006.

Franken apologized after Tweeden made her allegations public last week in a blog post for KABC.

“What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden, and to the public,” the letter said.

“In our experience, we know Al as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant. That is why we are moved to quickly and directly affirm that after years of working with him, we would like to acknowledge that not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior; and mention our sincere appreciation that he treated each of us with the utmost respect and regard.”

Franken worked on “Saturday Night Live” as a writer and a featured player from 1977 to 1980 and from 1988 to 1995.

Tweeden said last week that she was forcibly kissed by Franken, who was a radio host for Air America at the time, and groped in her sleep during a USO tour in 2006. She shared an image of herself sleeping as Franken’s hands hovered over her chest as evidence of the incident.

Franken apologized and called for an ethics investigation into the incident.

"I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn't matter," Franken said in a statement released Thursday. "There's no excuse. I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn't funny. It's completely inappropriate. It's obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture."

A second woman came forward Monday, accusing Franken of groping her as they posed for a photo at the 2010 Minnesota State Fair.

Teen to spend most of his life behind bars in murder of young father

An Oklahoma teenager was sentenced to up to life in prison Tuesday morning after a jury convicted him of first degree murder and other charges earlier this month in the shooting death of a Tulsa father last year.

>> Read more trending news

Convicted killer Emmitt Sam, is now 18, but he was 17 at the time of the June 2016 carjacking that left 27-year-old Jonathan Stephens dead.

A jury convicted Sam of robbing a Broken Arrow couple, stealing their car and carjacking another couple in east Tulsa before killing Stephens near his front door.

His alleged, Nathan Simmons, will go on trial in January.

Following Sam’s conviction, the jury held another hearing in order to recommend life in prison for the teen. Because he was a minor at the time of the crime, the recommendation required an additional hearing.

At a formal sentencing hearing Tuesday morning, the judge upheld the jury’s recommendation: a 45 to life prison sentence for the murder charge, plus 17 years for each robbery conviction.

A total of 62 years in prison with an 85 percent mandatory serving time means Sam will be at least 70 before he can request parole.

Stephens’ mother, who planned to be in court for all testimony, wants to keep her son’s memory alive. She said Stephens was a great father to his young daughter, a loving son and a person with a smile always on his face.

Report: Gwyneth Paltrow engaged to TV exec Brad Falchuk after years of dating

Gwyneth Paltrow’s boyfriend of three years, Brad Falchuk, has proposed to his actress girlfriend, Us Weekly reports.

>> Read more trending news

Citing multiple unnamed sources, the publication reported the engagement was more a matter of when than if.

“They both knew it would happen, but it wasn’t a big thing to them because they were both in long marriages before. There wasn’t a rush,” one source revealed.

Paltrow and Falchuck met on the set of “Glee” in 2014. Falchuk, 46, was co-creator and executive producer of the former Fox show, and Paltrow had a reoccurring role as substitute teacher, Holly Holliday.

According to Us Weekly, the pair revealed their relationship to the public in September 2015 during a premiere of “Scream Queens” -- another of Falchuk’s projects.

“I think she just supports everything I do, thankfully,” Falchuk said of his now-fiancee at the time.

Paltrow, 45, made headlines in 2014 when she announced her divorce from Coldplay’s Chris Martin after 10 years of marriage. While the divorce was surprising to many, it was what Paltrow called the separation that had people scratching their heads. Their statement on Paltrow’s lifestyle site Goop read, in part, “We have always conducted our relationship privately and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.”

RELATED: Gwyneth Paltrow dished about how leaving the world of Hollywood to start Goop was the best decision of her life

“Conscious uncoupling” became a meme of it’s own, which Paltrow would eventually grow to regret. The pair are still amicable and co-parent son, Moses, 11, and daughter Apple, 13.

Falchuk also shares two kids, Isabella and Brody, with ex-wife and TV producer Suzanne Falchuk.

Police find $500K, guns, drugs after neighbors complain

Three people are facing charges after Charlotte-Mecklenburg police found $500,000 in cash, along with guns and drugs, while searching a home in Steele Creek.

[PHOTOS: Neighborhood complaints lead police to find, drugs, guns, cash]

Police said they investigated a house on Hatton Cross Lane after receiving anonymous complaints from neighbors and arrested 30-year-old Anthony Joseph Espinal, 24-year-old Jesus Manuel Rosario and 32-year-old Socrates Jhoneril Gomez.

In addition to the cash, officials said 2.6 kilograms of cocaine, two pounds of marijuana, two guns, a money counter and other drugs were found inside the house.

Authorities said the cocaine was packaged as bricks and that much of the cash was wrapped in tape and dunked in grease before being stored in metal containers.

Investigators told WSOC that the narcotics are worth about $100,000 and that they believe the bust curbed violent crime in the area.

"To say that this reduced the violent crime aspect pretty much all across the area, I think would be very true," Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Sgt. Danny Meyers. 

Espinal, Rosario and Gomez were each charged with conspiracy to traffic in cocaine greater than 400 grams, felony possession of cocaine, trafficking in opium/heroin/opiates, possession with intent to sell/distribute marijuana, felony possession of marijuana, maintaining a dwelling, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia not for marijuana.

All three suspects received a $1,552,000 bond.

Police said they're looking for a third suspect, 21-year-old Christian Nunez, in connection with the drugs, guns and cash uncovered during the bust.

Critter trapped in mother's wall for weeks, ruins Thanksgiving

A mother said her Thanksgiving is ruined because of a rodent living in her wall.

Tiffany Gibson turned to FOX13 after weeks of trying to get the problem fixed with her rental company at the Uptown Square apartments.

“I have been trying to get my landlord, my rent office, to try and help me with a problem I've been having since August,” said Gibson.

It started with noise, like scratching, and Gibson quickly realized a critter had gotten stuck in her walls.

 “I don't know if it's a rat, a cat, a bat, a squirrel, might be a baby tiger,” said Gibson, a mother of two boys.

She knew it was biting through her wall though when two holes emerged in her kitchen.

“If it can bite a hole in the wall, it can surely bite,” she said.

Tiffany said she has been trying to get management at Uptown Square to fix the issue for months, and told FOX13 the plaster and chicken wire was not providing peace of mind. 

“I should've got a transfer, Maybe they should've given me another apartment,” she said, throwing out options to remedy her current situation.

Instead, the mother has had to cancel hosting Thanksgiving.

“I refuse to have anybody over with holes in my walls and scratching coming from within my walls,” she said.

FOX13’s camera finally caught the critter on video, but for Tiffany, that has not eased her anxiety.

“I just don't want to stay here for the simple fact that I am terrified,” she said.

Her son is also terrified as well. He has been nervous about going to the bathroom by himself because of the incessant noise.

The management at Uptown Square apartments told FOX13 multiple maintenance men have visited the apartment but not heard the scratching.

Gibson said one worker absolutely witnessed the scratching and they know it exists from repairing the holes.

FOX13’s Zach Crenshaw only spent a few minutes in the apartment and heard the scratching and saw the squirrel through the wire.

The property manager said pest control put some bait in the wall on Monday.

Gibson is upset, though, because she said now the squirrel might die in her wall and smell up the apartment.
