Stephanie Davis has been arrested

Stephanie DavisThe alleged argument comes just a week after the 28-year-old Irish hunk – who spent six weeks in rehab earlier this year – fell off the wagon again and was seen sleeping rough on a park bench following a boozy night out in London.

A source said at the time: “Jeremy was in high spirits when he arrived and started drinking. He didn’t seem to care who saw him and knocked back a lot of booze.

“He was pretty worse for wear by the end of the night.

“It’s sad really because most of the people around knew he was clean and had been trying to stay sober. But it seemed nothing would stop him having a few drinks.”

His relapse at the end of last month came shortly after he had a blazing row with the former ‘Hollyoaks’ star at her home in Liverpool but admitted recently that it was his fault because he can’t control his drink and is terrified of losing the brunette beauty.

He said: “It was totally my fault and there are no excuses for what I did. I relapsed. When I pick up a drink or put up a tweet it’s self-sabotage, it’s self-harming.

“When I sense fear I tend to strike out instead of being able to deal with things.

“I’m very insecure. I’m scared of people leaving me. If I felt like Steph was going to leave me I would do something out of anger, like in the past. There’s no excuse, but a lot of my behaviour is irrational and I am working hard to change that.”

The ‘Beauty School Cop Out’ star’s friends and management are now desperately trying to get him to return to rehab in order to beat his demons once and for all.

Stephanie and Jeremy met last January while taking part in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ but their controversial relationship came crashing down just weeks after they left the abode when they locked horns and had a scrap during a holiday away.

The pretty star then found out she was pregnant with her now five-month-old son Caben-Albi but Jeremy refused to believe he belonged to him until he was born.

After a paternity test confirmed he was the little one’s biological father, the pair decided to give things another go for the sake of their child.

The 24-year-old actress has reportedly been detained by police on suspicion of Grievously Bodily Harm (GBH) after she allegedly attacked her on-off boyfriend Jeremy McConnell during a late night spat at a hotel, according to the Mirror Online.

Cortland man pleads guilty to OVI crash that killed jogger

Brittany Szwedko was walking on the side of Ridge Road in Fowler Township when she was hit by Lauer last year.

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The man accused of hitting and killing 27-year-old Brittany Szwedko pleaded guilty to the fatal crash in a Trumbull County courtroom Monday morning.

Szwedko was training for a half marathon when police say Russell Lauer III hit her along Ridge Road in Fowler Township and took off. She later died as a result of her injuries.

Monday, the victim’s family heard the word they had been longing to hear — “guilty.” Szwedko’s mother, Mary Kay, said she’s happy to finally hear Lauer say it.

The 43-year-old pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of an accident, and OVI.

“Emotionally, this is a tough case. I know that Brittany’s mother struggled with this case and it’s understandable,” said Assistant Prosecutor Mike Burnett.

Police said Lauer was extremely impaired behind the wheel, under the influence of alcohol and drugs, at the time of the crash in February of 2016.

Lauer left the scene but a witness followed him, eventually getting him to stop and holding him there until police arrived.

“We are thankful to that gentleman who doesn’t really want his name mentioned, but we are thankful to him for doing the right thing and stopping Mr. Lauer,” Burnett said.

Prosecutors said he has two prior convictions for driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, as well as a prior reckless operation charge and seven prior suspensions on his driving record.

They’ll be asking that Lauer serve eight years at sentencing — a hearing that will be scheduled at a later date.

This, as Szwedko’s family continues planning for her second memorial 5K in September.

Man sentenced in September crash that killed friend

John J. Stephenson
John J. Stephenson
 A Fort Wayne man who was drunk when he crashed an off-road vehicle last September, resulting in an Ohio man’s death, was sentenced to prison.
John J. Stephenson, of the 1100 block of Branstrator Road, was sentenced Friday in Allen Superior Court to serve eight years of a 12-year prison sentence, with four years on probation, for causing death while operating a motor vehicle with an alcohol concentration greater than .15 percent, a Level 4 felony. His driver’s license also is suspended for five years.

Four related charges of operating while intoxicated were dismissed.

Stephenson pleaded guilty last month, admitting he was driving an off-road vehicle with his passenger, 21-year-old Alex M. “Tank” Tetzloff of Sandusky, Ohio, at about 2 a.m. Sept. 23 in the 8800 block of Kress Road, south of Airport Expressway near Branstrator Road, when the John Deere Gator veered off the southwest Allen County road and flipped, killing Tetzloff, according to the probable-cause affidavit.

Police said the vehicle sped into a ditch before it flipped.

Tetzloff, who died of blunt-force trauma due to the crash, was the 25th traffic fatality in Fort Wayne and Allen County in 2016. Stephenson was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. They were not wearing helmets, but wore seatbelts, police reported.

Becky Tetzloff addressed the court on Friday, saying, “We are frozen in time … because you decided to drink, drive and kill again.”

Stephenson faced similar charges and received prison time after he struck a family’s station wagon Oct. 27, 1994 on Winchester Road near Bluffton Road, resulting in the Oct. 31 death of 6-year-old Daniel Frost. His parents, Walter and Ellen Frost, as well as their 12-year-old son, Matthew, were injured in the accident.

In that accident,  Frost had come to a stop near the intersection when Stephenson’s westbound truck struck the vehicle from behind. Stephenson then turned around and sped off in the opposite direction. A passer-by saw the accident and followed the truck. The passer-by called police on his car phone and gave a description of the truck and the direction in which it was heading. The passer-by continued to follow Stephenson after he abandoned the truck and fled on foot. Police placed him under arrest.

In March 1995, Stephenson was sentenced to serve six years of an eight-year sentence for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, causing a death, with the remaining two years to be served on probation, and two years of probation for failure to stop after an accident resulting in injury or death, that was served consecutively. He was ordered to take part in an alcohol abuse deterrent program.

Stephenson has prior convictions for OWI and multiple traffic violations, although he said Friday he had successfully abstained from drinking for 7 1/2 years.

Allen Superior Court Judge John Surbeck ordered Stephenson to pay restitution in the amount of $13,552.05 to the Tetzloff family for funeral expenses.
