Scientology PR rep arrested in plot to kidnap, kill cop - 2013-08-23
Las Vegas police have arrested a man and a woman in connection with a crazy plot to kidnap, jail, try and execute a random police officer.
The plot was allegedly driven by right-wing "Sovereign Citizen" beliefs. Growing since the late 2000s, the Sovereign Citizen movement is largely made up of people who do not believe in following U.S. laws or paying taxes and have a particular dislike for law enforcement.
Devon Campbell Newman, 67, became the public relations director of Scientology's "Celebrity Center" in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2010. Her alleged partner in crime is 42-year-old David Allen Brutsche, a registered sex offender and six-time felon.
