Authorities believe the wind skirt either broke away from an eastbound tractor trailer and was thrown onto the westbound lanes, or was already on the lanes when it was hit by another vehicle, the News Sentinel reported.

"With it coming from the side, they probably never saw it coming," Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk said. "One of the passengers in the vehicle was able to act quickly and turn the car because they saw the ramp. They got the vehicle over to the Cedar Bluff ramp, and because the ramp goes uphill, the vehicle was able to come to a stop on its own."

Texas Christian football star suspended after arrest on assault charge

Texas Christian University suspended wide receiver KaVontae Turpin, who was arrested Sunday on an assault charge, coach Gary Patterson said in a Big 12 conference call Monday.

>> Read more trending news 

Turpin, who scored two touchdowns in the Horned Frogs’ 52-27 loss to Oklahoma, was charged with assault with bodily injury to a family member, the Fort Worth Star Telegram reported.

Turpin, a senior, is TCU’s all-time leader in special teams touchdowns with six in his career, WFAA reported. He scored on a career-best 99-yard touchdown against Oklahoma.

“Texas Christian University is aware that one of its students was recently arrested for a reported domestic situation,” school officials told Star-Telegram in a statement. “The university takes these types of reports very seriously and is continuing to gather information to determine next steps. TCU expects its students to behave in an ethical manner, abide by campus policies and adhere to state and federal law.”

Patterson said Turpin was unlikely to play against Kansas on Saturday.

“Everybody knows how I handle things like this,” Patterson said on the conference call. “My track record usually speaks for itself if you go back through it. We’re gathering information, but at this point in time he probably won’t play against Kansas.

“We have not received anything as far as information, police report, anything else. At this point in time, he knows how that all goes. All of (the players) do.”

Turpin was released from Tarrant County Jail, a spokesman said. The assault charge is a class A misdemeanor, and Turpin could face up to a year in prison and up to a $4,000 fine if convicted, the Star-Telegram reported.

A Fort Worth police spokesman said the incident involved Turpin and a woman, the newspaper reported. The spokesman did not say how Turpin and the woman were related but said a dating relationship would fall under “family member” assault.

After receiving information from a tipster on Tafahree Maynard whereabouts, 75-90 police officers descended on a neighborhood in unincorporated Snellville, set up a perimeter and went house to house, Gwinnett Police Chief Butch Ayers said at a press briefing.

After finding Maynard, police initially used a Taser. They shot after determining he had the mower blade.

“The danger to the community is over,” Ayers said.

Update 11:35 a.m. EDT Oct. 22: Officials told WSBTV on Monday that Maynard, the man accused of shooting and killing a Gwinnett County police officer Saturday, is dead.

Sources had earlier told the news station that Maynard was located Monday in Gwinnett County.

Update 11:20 a.m. EDT Oct. 22: Sources told WSBTV’s Gwinnett Bureau Chief Tony Thomas that Maynard was located Monday morning.

Police earlier said Maynard, who is suspected of firing the shots that killed Toney, "should be considered armed and dangerous." 

Update 9:45 a.m. EDT Oct. 22: Gwinnett County police said Monday that there had been a "credible sighting" within the last 12 hours of Tafahree Maynard, the 18-year-old suspected of shooting and killing Officer Antwan Toney on Saturday.

Police previously warned that Maynard "should be considered armed and dangerous."

Update 8:45 p.m. EDT Oct. 21: Gwinnett County authorities have taken three people into custody in connection with the fatal shooting of Officer Antwan Toney Saturday in Snellville.

Investigators said the three are not under arrest, but were taken into custody during a search of a home Sunday near the scene of the shooting.

The main suspect, Tafahree Maynard, 18, is still on the loose and considered armed and dangerous.

“It’s very important just for the safety of the area, for the peace of mind of the public and the officers here at the department, we would like to take him into custody,” a police spokesman said.

“We’d encourage him to turn himself in. We can guarantee his safety, if he just turns himself in.”

There’s a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Maynard.

Update 9:34 a.m. EDT Oct. 21: A new mugshot was released of Isaiah Pretlow, now in custody in the shooting death of a Gwinnett County police officer. Tafahree Maynard, believed by police to have fired the shot that killed Officer Antwan Toney, remains at large.

Update 6:17 a.m. EDT Oct. 21: Gwinnett County police announced early Sunday that one suspect is in custody in the shooting death of a Gwinnett County police officer Saturday. Another suspect is still on the run. 

Isaiah Pretlow is in custody and charged with aggravated assault in connection with the shooting death of Officer Antwan Toney. He's accused of pointing a gun at an officer during the manhunt. 

Tafahree Maynard, who police believe fired the shot that killed Toney, is still on the run, authorities said. Police are encouraging Maynard to turn himself in. Although police originally said they thought up to four suspects were involved, they said Sunday morning that Pretlow and Maynard are the only suspects. 

Late Saturday, WSB-TV's Rikki Klaus was on Cordite Loop, where police waited for a warrant to search the home. It's unclear if Pretlow was arrested at the home. 

Toney, 30, was shot while responding to a suspicious vehicle parked near Shiloh Middle School in unincorporated Snellville on Saturday afternoon, police said. The car was parking at Crumps Landing Road and White Road.

Gwinnett County Sgt. Jake Smith said in a news conference that someone reported the vehicle and that the people inside may have been smoking marijuana. 

Toney and another officer approached the vehicle, and that's when someone started shooting from inside the car, authorities said.

"Before they could even get to the vehicle, shots rang out," Smith said. 

Police returned fire as an officer dragged Toney away.

Toney was rushed to Gwinnett Medical Center in critical condition where he died, officials said.

The two-year veteran was just days from celebrating his third anniversary with the department on Oct. 26. 

Smith said that "99.999 percent" of the time, routine calls don't end up in gunfire.

“That it went this way, it’s just tragic,” Smith said.

The suspects sped away and crashed the vehicle on Ross Road and Calumet Farm Lane less than a mile from the shooting scene, got out of the car and ran, authorities said. Police originally said witnesses reported seeing up to four people run away.

On Saturday night, the car was towed to police headquarters. 

Gwinnett County police have opened a new 24-hour tipline and are asking for the public's help to learn more about the shooting. They are asking anyone with information to call 770-513-5710.

It's the first time an officer has been killed in Gwinnett County since 1993.

Original report: A police officer in Gwinnett County, Georgia, checking out a suspicious vehicle near a Snellville-area middle school was shot and killed Saturday as the car sped away. Four suspects were on the run Saturday night.

The officer, Antwan Toney, died after he was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, according to the police department. He had been on the Gwinnett police force for three years.

Toney was a member of the Gwinnett Police Department’s Uniform Division, and he was working his shift on patrol Saturday.

Toney is the first Gwinnett officer killed in the line of duty in years.

In 1993, Officer Chris Magill was killed by a drunk driver while engaged in a traffic stop with another drunk driver.

Three Gwinnett officers were gunned down in 1964 when they were investigating a “suspicious activity” call near Norcross. The officers — Jerry Everett, Marvin Gravitt and Ralph Davis — were handcuffed together and shot with their own weapons.

Saturday’s shooting came after three separate officer-involved shootings in Georgia on Thursday that left two men dead.

In one of the previous shootings, a state patrolman was shot at close range along I-75 south in Bartow County but survived because he was wearing a body armor vest. Two troopers returned fire and killed the original shooter, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

The other shooting death occurred in Monroe when a man carrying a replica Thompson submachine gun allegedly pointed it at an officer, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

In the third incident, a suspect shot at police in Richland. but no one died.

“I was really caught off-guard because there’s a little girl that none of us had known, so I wasn’t sure if I should take pictures. But it kind of just felt like the thing to do,” Wickins told WIVB

Jessica Lester told WIVB sometimes her daughter doesn’t know how to deal with people, especially ones she doesn’t know, because she has autism. But in the little girl’s mind, Spark was familiar because, in Layla’s eyes, she was the Disney princess.

“She [Spark] was just so sweet with her [Layla] and just keep talking to her and asking her questions. Layla loved her and she fell in love so fast,” Lester told WIVB.

But it wasn’t just the the starstruck little girl’s mother who had a lasting impression of the interaction.

“I was flattered. I was like in tears that she thought I was a princess, and it just made my day absolutely more amazing than what it already was,” Spark told WIVB.

Spark met Layla again this weekend and gave her gifts. Layla is still calling Sparks Cinderella. 

But the story could be even more magical. The chance meeting has inspired the community to help get Layla to meet the “real” Cinderella. 

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help send Layla and the rest of her family to Walt Disney World so she can meet all of the Disney princesses, WIVB reported.
