Harvey Weinstein surrendered Friday to authorities at a police station in New York City, where the Hollywood megaproducer has been charged with rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct.

Weinstein arrived early in the morning at the New York Police Department's First Precinct in Lower Manhattan, ushered into the station by law enforcement officers as members of the media crowded behind metal barriers erected outside. He kept his gaze lowered while shuffling past a barrage of shouted questions.

Catholics and evangelicals, two Christian groups who have had overlapping political priorities in the past, find their agendas diverging in the era of President Donald Trump and Pope Francis.

Tensions between the two faith traditions are hardly new. As fierce adversaries, they once cast doubt on each other's legitimacy as heirs to the church of Jesus Christ.

Police in Nebraska say they've seized 118 pounds of pure fentanyl — one of the largest seizures in U.S. history, they say, and enough to kill more than 26 million people, according to government estimates.

Nebraska State Patrol troopers say they seized the drugs during a traffic stop on Interstate 80 near Kearney on April 26, but at the time suspected most of the powder to be cocaine.

The last thing he needed was a botched bill.

His December 2015 surgery to replace the ball in his left hip joint at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City had been routine. One night in the hospital and no complications.
