MLK sites in Georgia closed amid federal government shutdown

ATLANTA (AP) - Martin Luther King Jr.'s childhood home, historic Ebenezer Baptist Church and the visitor center at MLK National Historic Site in Atlanta are closed amid the federal government shutdown.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports a smattering of people wandered the park's grounds during the closures Saturday. Freedom Hall, which is privately owned, remained open for visitors to take in exhibits about King, Rosa Parks and Gandhi, but employees said attendance had dropped dramatically for a Saturday.

Still, some were trying to make the best of what was their first visit to the historic site.

Aric Dupre, who traveled from Cincinnati for a weekend vacation with his wife, Kat, said they were disappointed. He says they have other plans, but their morning was shot.

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park remained open Saturday. People were spotted jogging and climbing the mountain.

Pizza shop owner sues when store confused for one where assault occurred

A Pennsylvania pizza shop is being targeted, but its owner says it is a case of mistaken identity.

>> Read more trending news

Customers upset about a viral video in which a former manager allegedly assaulted a woman have been calling Original Milano's in Oakland -- but the video was taken at Pizza Milano.

Ben Sciulli is the owner of the Original Milano's Pizza.

He wants to make it clear that his family business is not affiliated with Pizza Milano.

“My dad started this in 1975 in Hampton Township. He owns the rights of the name. He trademarked it," Sciulli said.

His family owns three locations, and the Oakland shop has been open for nearly 20 years.

Some customers assumed Milano's Pizza was connected to Pizza Milano, where a former manager was seen on video allegedly assaulting a woman.

It drew days of protests outside the shop and Sciulli's business has paid the price, too.

“For me and my employees answering the phone calls and the threats of coming to burn the place down and things like that, yeah, it was very frustrating,” he said.

He claimed people upset with Pizza Milano have been putting out false information about his business, including his phone number.

Sciulli’s attorney issued a cease-and-desist order, promising to file legal complaints against anyone who incites harassment.

Now, the threats have finally stopped and business is picking back up.

"We do have a lot of support in Oakland, (people) that have come and supported our business," Sciulli said.

The ex-manager at the Uptown Pizza Milano, Mahmut Yilmez, is due in court next week. The woman in the video, Jade Martin, was also charged.

The film crew members, who claimed to be working the CNBC show “Staten Island Hustle,” were detained by Transportation Security Administration officials. TSA officials said the crew tried to smuggle a roller bag that contained wires, a motor and PVC pipe through a checkpoint, ABC News reported.

One crew member was filming the incident, which allegedly was to test whether TSA officials would discover the concealed device. A third man involved in the filming told police the crew was testing “vacuum compression luggage,” ABC News reported.

In a statement, Endemol Shine North America, one of the producers of “Staten Island Hustle,” said there had been “a misunderstanding.” 

Endemol Shine North America said in a statement. "The team was producing an episode about a new product, vacuum compression luggage, which allows travelers more room for clothing and has no other intended use,” Endemol Shine North America said. “Unfortunately, there appears to have been a misunderstanding, and we regret any inconvenience to TSA and other authorities on the ground for complications that may have been caused.”

TSA bomb techs cleared the bags after examining them and the crew was arrested, ABC News reported. The crew members were later released but could face civil penalties. The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said it is reviewing the case, ABC News reported.
