The Ventura County Sheriff's Office told Fox News a deputy responded to a 911 call after 11 p.m. and that Locklear was “heavily intoxicated” and “arguing with other subjects at the residence.”

“The responding deputy believed it was necessary to separate her from the others,” a department spokesperson told Fox News. “In the process of trying to separate her, she battered the deputy. There was no injury to the deputy. That action caused her to get arrested.”

>> Read more trending news

Richard Harrison’s son, Rick Harrison, confirmed the news Monday on social media.

“He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad,” Rick Harrison wrote. “That I got to share him with so many others and they got to see what a great family man he was is something I am grateful to have experienced with him. He lived a very full life and through the History television show ‘Pawn Stars’ touched the lives of people all over, teaching them the value of loving your family, hard work and humor.”

Employees at Gold and Silver Pawn, the family-owned Las Vegas shop at the center of "Pawn Stars,” said in a statement Monday that Richard Harrison “was surrounded by loving family this past weekend and went peacefully.”

“The team at Gold & Silver Pawn and the Pawn Stars family is grieving his loss,” the statement said. “He will be remembered as the best father, grandfather and great-grandfather you could have by his family and by fans as the sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking, and voice of absolute reason on the History television show ‘Pawn Stars.’”

Richard Harrison was born March 4, 1941, in Danville, Virginia. A veteran of the U.S. Navy, he moved to Las Vegas in 1981 and started Gold and Silver Pawn with Rick Harrison in 1989, according to Fox News. He appeared in all 15 seasons of "Pawn Stars," which debuted in 2009.

He is survived by his wife, Joanne, and their three sons, Rick, Joseph and Chris.

Uncle, nephew battle cancer after both get diagnoses a day apart

They are called Team Worrell and they are more than just a team, they are a nephew-an-uncle duo who found out they’re both battling cancer. 

Brady Worrell found out he had leukemia on May 16. On May 17, Brady’s nephew Cal, who is only 7, was diagnosed with lymphoma, KETV reported.

But despite not one, but two, life-changing medical diagnoses, they’ve found a connection.

They entertained each other as they went through treatments at Nebraska Medicine, either FaceTiming from their rooms, or meeting in the hospital halls for a game, KETV reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Brady is still receiving treatment, but Cal and his family got good news last week and he was discharged. 

One of his first stops after getting out of the hospital -- meeting a college pitcher from Texas Tech who was in Cal’s position when he was the boy’s age, ESPN reported

Dylan Dusek beat cancer, acute lymphocytic leukemia to be exact, when he was 6. During a rain delay at the College World Series, Dusek and Cal met at the ballpark, and were able to have a photo taken together.

Cal learned about Dusek’s history while he was receiving treatment and watching the College World Series. Commentators were talking about Dusek’s battle with cancer. Dusek’s mother, Cheryl, heard about Cal and Dylan wanted to meet him, so tickets were given to the Worrell family so the two could meet, ESPN reported

They spoke for 20 minutes about their treatments and how wanting to play America’s Pastime helps get through the tough times. They compared cancer battle scars: Cal still has a port to receive medicine, while Dusek’s has long since healed, but he still has the scar, ESPN reported

Then Dusek gave Cal a baseball emblazoned with the College World Series logo and a simple message for his new friend -- “never give up.”

Dusek said the meeting with Cal was fate. Dusek was sidelined two years ago with elbow surgery. Without the surgery, he and Cal never would have met since his college career would have been done last year.

“It’s unbelievable,” Dusek told ESPN. “I wouldn’t have experienced what was going on with this team right now. I wouldn’t have met Cal. That’s a crazy thing to think, to think about it. It’s inspiring. It’s part of my storybook.” 

Dusek’s mother may also become part of a support system for Cal’s mother after they exchanged phone numbers. 

“I told her to call me,” Cheryl Dusek told ESPN. “I can help her through this experience. As a parent, you just need help. I know how it feels.”

Georgia teacher’s request for funeral: Backpacks with school supplies

The donated supplies were Waddell’s last request to honor her lifelong passion for helping children in need, according to her family.

“My cousin, a teacher, wanted backpacks with supplies brought to her funeral instead of flowers for needy students,” Brad Johnson said on Twitter. “Serving others to the end.”

Johnson shared photos of the backpacks and of Waddell’s fellow teachers, who served as honorary pallbearers at the funeral, he said. 

Over her career, Waddell worked as a paraprofessional and a teacher at Sawnee Elementary, Cumming Elementary and Haw Creek Elementary in the Forsyth County school district, according to her family.

Johnson’s initial tweet has since been shared more than 2,500 times, garnering praise for Waddell and her legacy as an educator.

Former students who left condolences on an online guestbookdescribed Waddell as a compassionate and inventive teacher who encouraged students to do their best. 

“The best teacher ever I’ve ever had,” one student wrote.

Paris Jackson comments on grandfather Joe Jackson’s health, says he did not tweet message

Paris Jackson, the only daughter of the late singer Michael Jackson, has commented on reports about the health of her grandfather, Joe Jackson.

According to reports, the Jackson family patriarch has terminal cancer. One of his sons, Jermaine Jackson, told the Daily Mail that Joe Jackson is “very, very frail.”

“He doesn’t have long,” Jermaine Jackson told the British gossip outlet.

Seemingly in response to the reports, Joe Jackson posted a photo and message on Twitter on Sunday.

“I have seen more sunsets than I have left to see,” the tweet read. “The sun rises when the time comes and whether you like it or not the sun sets when the time comes.”

Prior to that tweet, Paris Jackson said she was “blessed to have a family that comes together the way the Jacksons do.”

She ended her comments on her grandfather with a message of gratitude.

Teen girl helps blind, deaf man by signing into his hands on Alaska Air flight

A teen girl helped a blind, deaf man communicate on a recent Alaska Airlines flight, according to KIRO.

Dianne McGinness with Alaska Airlines shared the heartwarming story after a passenger on the flight wrote a post this week about the interaction that was shared over 400,000 times.

The passenger, Lynette Scribner, was traveling on the same flight as the teen and man, and was moved to write a post on the touching encounter. 

>> Read more trending news 

Scribner said the man, Tim Cook, was traveling home to Portland after visiting his sister. Cook lives at Portland's Brookdale Senior Living. 

When passengers of the flight realized Cook was blind and deaf, many helped ensure he was comfortable. A man sitting next to Cook gave him the aisle seat and helped with little tasks like opening his coffee creamer and pouring it into his coffee, Scribner shared.

A flight attendant made an announcement asking if a passenger on board knew American Sign Language. Fifteen-year-old Clara Daly, who has studied ASL for the last year, rang her call button.

When Daly learned the man could communicate only if someone signed into his hand, she immediately went to help.

Cook asked Daly questions and she patiently sign-spelled answers into his hand.

Scribner said Daly learned ASL because she has dyslexia, and it was the easiest foreign language for her to learn.

“Clara was amazing,” an Alaska Airlines flight attendant said in the news release. “You could tell Tim was very excited to have someone he could speak to -- and she was such an angel.”

“When (Cook) asked (Daly) if she was pretty, she blushed and laughed as the seat mate, who had learned a few signs, communicated an enthusiastic yes to Tim,” Scribner shared. “I don't know when I've ever seen so many people rally to take care of another human being. All of us in the immediate rows were laughing and smiling and enjoying his obvious delight in having someone to talk to.”

After the flight, McGinness said Cook met a service provider from Brookdale Senior Living at the gate.

Cook said the flight was the best trip he's ever taken.

Daly told her mom she thought the encounter was "meant to be," since her original flight was canceled and she was redirected to Cook's flight.

On Thursday, Scribner added a note on her beloved post: “We are all starving for good news and this was just what we needed.”

Ohio declares hepatitis A outbreak; joins growing list of states

Ohio is experiencing a statewide outbreak of hepatitis A, with 79 cases so far this year.

The Ohio Department of Health declared a statewide community outbreak of hepatitis A Friday evening.

Drug use, homelessness and incarceration are all risk factors, Ohio Department of Health officials said. Those who share needles or use street drugs -- injected or not -- are especially at risk. 

Outbreaks of hepatitis A are happening in several states across the U.S., including the neighboring states of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and West Virginia.

Arkansas, California, Kentucky, Missouri and Utah are also experiencing outbreaks of hepatitis A, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

>> Read more trending news 

Hepatitis A is a liver disease that is preventable through a vaccine. It is usually spread when a person ingests fecal matter -- even in microscopic amounts. This can happen through sharing food or drinks that are contaminated by the stool from an infected person. It can be spread through close personal contact, including sex, according to health officials.

Symptoms include fatigue, low appetite, jaundice and stomach pain. People with hepatitis A can experience mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months.

Netflix executive apologizes, resigns after using racial slurs

Netflix’s chief communications officer apologized and resigned after using a racial slur in front of colleagues on at least two occasions, CNN reported Friday.

>> Read more trending news 

Jonathan Friedland apologized on Twitter and said he was leaving the company after seven years.

"I feel awful about the distress this lapse caused to people at a company I love and where I want everyone to feel included and appreciated," Friedland tweeted.

Variety obtained a copy of a memo Netflix CEO Reed Hastings sent to employees to explain the situation. A copy was tweeted by The Hollywood Reporter.

The memo referenced an incident from several months ago when Friedland used a racial slur while meeting with Netflix public relations staff, CNN reported. The meeting was about sensitive words, and Friedland apologized afterward when people said his use of the word was inappropriate and hurtful.

He used the same slur a few days later in front of two black employees at Netflix’s human resources department while discussing the first incident, Hastings wrote in his memo.

"Many of us have worked closely with Jonathan for a long time, and have mixed emotions,” Hastings wrote. “Unfortunately, his lack of judgment in this area was too big for him to remain."

Friedland joined Netflix as vice president of communications in 2011 and assumed duties as chief communications officer the following year, Variety reported.

Netflix declined comment.
