A California fast-food institution celebrated its 70th birthday Monday, and what began as a tiny food stand in Baldwin Park has expanded to 334 locations in six states. KABC reported.
In-N-Out opened its doors on Oct. 22, 1948. The hamburger chain is celebrating its anniversary by releasing its 2019 T-shirt in restaurants, and an official party will be held Nov. 17 in Pomona, the television station reported.
In-N-Out was founded by Harry and Esther Snyder, The Mercury News reported. Their descendants still own the chain, and current president Lynsi Snyder, 36, granddaughter of the founder, recently told Forbes she does not anticipate opening restaurants east of Texas, the newspaper reported.
In-N-Out was one of California’s first drive-thru restaurants, the Mercury News reported. The newspaper said the world’s first drive-thru restaurant was Red’s Giant Hamburg in Springfield, Missouri, which opened in 1947.

The former CEO of a closed-down pain clinic in Tennessee is accused of plotting to forge a dead patient’s signature so Medicare could be billed in her name, The Tennessean reported.
According to federal court documents obtained by the newspaper, John Davis, who was the head of Comprehensive Pain Specialists (CPS), allegedly emailed businesswoman Brenda Montgomery about the forgery plan, which was part of an illegal kickback scheme.
Davis and Montgomery, who were indicted, pleaded not guilty in federal court, The Tennessean reported. Montgomery was the head of CCC Medical Inc., a medical device company, the newspaper reported.
CPS was based in Brentwood and closed down in July. Davis was CEO of the company from 2011 to 2017. He was indicted in April, and prosecutors said the indictment had more to do with a “side agreement” he had with Montgomery, rather than his day-to-day duties at the company.
The court documents allege Montgomery would pay kickbacks to Davis so he would refer patients from CPS who needed medical devices to CCC Medical, The Tennessean reported.
Montgomery allegedly used the referred patients to bill Medicare for at least $4.6 million according to court documents, for which she received about $2.6 million in reimbursements. Documents allege that Montgomery paid Davis at least $770,000 in bribes and disguised some of the payments through another company, The Tennessean reported.
Prosecutors are focusing on the CPS email server, arguing it contains millions of documents. This server appears to be where authorities first discovered the email about forging the signature of the dead patient, the Tennessean reported.
Davis’ attorneys have asked for a copy of the entire server, which they argue will provide context to the emails between Davis and Montgomery, the newspaper reported.
"(Davis) is saying he is making his request in good faith, and is not engaging in a fishing expedition,” federal prosecutors wrote. “However, (he) appears to be standing on the pier with tackle ready.”
Students, colleagues and friends are mourning the death of a teacher and coach in Fulton County, Georgia, who died Saturday night after she was hit by a van.
Sue Scheer was crossing busy Alpharetta Street near the restaurant Pure Taqueria in Roswell when she was struck. Police said the van’s driver did not see her.
Scheer had worked for the Fulton County school district for 18 years, the district confirmed.
She was most recently an adaptive physical education teacher at Vickery Mill Elementary, Mt. Park Elementary and Roswell High School.
A Coweta County man was indicted on charges of felony murder and child cruelty more than a year after he was arrested in connection with the death of his 5-month-old son.
A grand jury handed down the indictment against Christopher Halver-Gene Hansen earlier this month, Coweta County District Attorney Herb Cranford said.
Hansen, 31, of Newnan, was arrested after officials said he caused the death of Sebastian Livingston last year. The child suffered non-accidental trauma after a June 17, 2017, incident at home, doctors told investigators.
At a Newnan hospital, Hansen first told a deputy that Sebastian was choking, according to the report. The child was then flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, where he was placed on life support, officials confirmed.
Hailey Baldwin has filed a trademark to register the name “Hailey Bieber.”
The Blast obtained documents filed by Baldwin on Oct. 10, nearly a month after her reported courthouse wedding to singer Justin Bieber. The filing was for the purposes of a clothing line, the website reported.
People reported that, according to a source, the wedding was Baldwin’s doing.
“The city hall marriage was her idea. It was ‘you and me against the world,’” the unnamed source said. “Let’s show (everyone) we’re serious and it’s not just some crazy fling.”
Although Baldwin denied she was married in a since-deleted tweet last month, The Blast reported that the two referred to each other as husband and wife during a visit to Stratford Perth Museum in Stratford, Ontario, Oct. 1.
“We were so pleased to have such a warm and special guest visit the museum yesterday (along with her very special husband,” the museum said in an Instagram caption of a chalkboard message Baldwin wrote to Bieber.
“Justin very graciously introduced Hailey as his wife. Perhaps just a term of endearment? We loved their visit,” the museum said in the post’s comments.
A man driving on a Tennessee interstate highway was killed Sunday morning when a metal wind skirt struck and penetrated his vehicle, WBIR reported.
Mark Elliot, 71, of St. Louis, was pronounced dead at the scene after the metal debris crashed into the windshield of his Acura MDX on I-40 around 10:35 a.m., the Knoxville News Sentinel reported.
A metal wind skirt is a square piece of metal that is positioned in front of the first tire of the trailer, behind the cab of the truck, WBIR reported.
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."
A man used pepper spray on an armored car driver and stole cash from the vehicle Monday, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office told KHOU.
The armored car was parked outside a Chase Bank in Houston when it was robbed at 10:51 a.m., the Houston Chronicle reported.
The guard was at the bank door when the robber approached him wearing a reflector vest and a mask, deputies said.
The robber then used pepper spray on the guard and grabbed the bag of cash he was bringing into the bank, KHOU reported. It was unclear how much money was taken, the television station reported.
The robber fled the scene in a white 2005-2009 Kia, deputies said. He is described as a tall, thin black or Hispanic man between 25 and 35 years old.
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.
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.
