Ghislaine Maxwell ‘Black Eye’ Prison Photo Emerges

BROOKLYN, NY. (THECOUNT) — Ghislaine Maxwell suffered a black eye while behind bar, or so a newly released jail photo shows.

The photo emerged after Maxwell’s attorney filed a letter and the photo with the court.

According to TMZ:

Maxwell’s attorney, Bobbi Sternheim, filed docs attaching a picture showing what Jeffrey Epstein’s associate is looking like these days while locked up at NYC’s Metropolitan Detention Center.

It’s clear she’s suffered a bruise under her eye, but how she got it is a mystery. Her lawyer’s filing included a letter to the judge stating Maxwell only noticed the bruise after catching her reflection on a nail clipper. She doesn’t have a mirror.

Sternheim says Maxwell — who’s accused of trafficking underage girls to have sex with Epstein — doesn’t know how she got the bruise. It appears prison officials aren’t buying that, because Sternheim claims officials threatened to put Maxwell in a Special Housing Unit unless she spilled the beans on how she got the bruise.

‘Face the Reality’ Radio Host Jessica Beauvais ID’d As DUI Driver In Fatal Collision With NYPD Officer

NEW YORK, NY. (THECOUNT) — “Face the Reality” radio show host, Jessica Beauvais, has been identified as the suspect in a Monday fatal vehicle-versus-pedestrian collision on the Long Island Expressway.

NYPD highway officer, Anastasios Tsakos, 43, was redirecting traffic on the Long Island Expressway, when he was fatally struck by 32-year-old Beauvais on Monday.

According to the criminal complaint, Beauvais live-streamed herself driving while drinking an unknown dark liquid from a plastic cup, hours before she allegedly struck Tsakos with her Volkswagen. She then fled the scene.

Beauvais, who was operating the vehicle on a suspended license, was later apprehended by officials who say her blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.

According to DailyWire:

Beauvais posted a nearly two-hour Facebook stream in which she spoke of the trial of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, saying, “This week we are going to talk about the ignorance that was the Derek Chauvin trial — or the ignorance that is essentially just is this f***ing justice system,” and played the song “F**k Tha Police,” by N.W. A. She added, “Like NWA say about the police – if you’re going to kill me, at least I get to take someone with me. I’m one of those people. If I’m going to go, someone is coming.”

“Throughout the video, Beauvais is seen vaping and drinking an unknown dark liquid from a plastic cup and, at one point, washes down the contents of a red shot glass with a bottle of Snapple,” The Daily Mail reported. “Police sources claim she later confessed to guzzling vodka before the deadly accident.”

“What happened to fighting?” she asked, according to the outlet. “I grew up on fighting. I like to fight. My hands and my feet and teeth. It does something for me — what does it do for you? F***ing people up never stopped being a thing. Shooting people is still wack. It means you can’t fight. It means you’re a cop.”

After signing off around 2 a.m. by saying, “F*** the police. F*** them,” Beauvais drove onto the Long Island Expressway, according to the criminal complaint, where Anastasios Tsakos, 43, was redirecting traffic after a separate fatal car accident.

Tsakos, the father of two children, a three-year-old son and six-year-old daughter, was reportedly sent 100 feet in the air before landing in the grass at the side of the road. He was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead of blunt force trauma injuries.

Beauvais’ windshield was reportedly “completely shattered.”

Beauvais faces up to 15 years in prison. Among the 13 charges brought against her are second degree manslaughter, second degree vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an incident without reporting a death.

Garfield Bryan, an administrator at the facility, said his staff heroically rushed the residents out.

“People [were] all over the place. It quickly started to look like a war zone. More firetrucks started coming in,” he said. “That’s when we realized that potentially there could be more residents on the right side of the building.”
