BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
A Florida man is facing a slew of charges after he threw his two-month-old infant at a deputy following a high-speed chase, officials said.
The event began as John James III drove recklessly in Vero Beach, deputies said. Despite the fact that he had the baby in the vehicle with him, James decided to speed up instead of stop when deputies attempted to pull him over.
That move sparked a 40-minute chase that involved hitting vehicles, maneuvering around roadblocks, and running right over contraptions meant to deflate tires.
The chase finally ended just before the man threw the baby at a deputy.
“[James] just turned around, no regard, not a little toss, [and] overhand threw this two-month-old at me from about six feet away,” said Jacob Curby, who caught the child.

EVERYDAY PEOPLE COULD MAKE MILLIONS THANKS TO THIS
Paul Mampilly is a Wall Street legend.
(Barron’s crowned his hedge fund as the “world’s best” and Kiplinger ranked it in the top 1%.)
But a few years ago, he left Wall Street.
“I just grew tired of helping the rich get richer,” Paul explains. “So I started sharing my No. 1 investment picks with Main Street Americans.”
And his No. 1 stock picks across his various research services have been phenomenal.
In 2017, he recommended Plug Power. It gained 1142% in 3.5 years.
In June 2018, he recommended Tandem Diabetes. It’s currently up 520% and still climbing.
In December 2019, he recommended Enphase Energy. It gained 638% in 1 year.
And in March of last year, he recommended Carvana. It’s currently up 877% and still climbing.
But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

U.S. stock futures were flat to slightly lower Monday as the S&P 500 attempts to make a run at a record high this week amid optimism about the economy’s ongoing reopening this summer.
S&P 500 futures lost 0.1%. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were flat. Nasdaq-100 futures shed 0.3%.
Friday’s jobs report showed the unemployment rate dropping to 5.8% from 6.1% and that 559,000 jobs were added in May. The report was seen as strong enough to keep investors’ confidence in the economy, but light enough to keep the Federal Reserve from rushing to change its easy money policies.
Investors are focused on inflation data in the week ahead, with May’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) scheduled to be released Thursday.

FROM AROUND THE GLOBE
Italian law enforcement officials are creating an international stir after giving dozens of beach tourists hefty fines.
The fines are being handed out to multiple tourists who have visited the beaches of Sardinia, which is an island off of the Italian coast in the Meditteranean Sea. More than 40 tourists have been slapped with fines over the last year after vacationing on the island.
Most of the tourists are being fined anywhere from $600 to $3,650 by officials. And while the fines are bad enough for someone who is just trying to vacation, some tourists have even been threatened with jail time.
What are tourists doing to receive the fines and threats of jail time? Their “crimes” are so easy to commit that it’s scary.
