VIDEO: Olive Garden server sings ‘Happy Birthday’ with voice of angel for customer party at restaurant – WATCH

KENNEWICK, Wash. – Every year, we celebrate the day we came into this world. Some people have a night out – maybe go to a restaurant.

While many expect the typical “Happy Birthday” rendition, a server at the Kennewick Olive Garden does it a little differently. He belts it

“Just through the years I’ve practiced and practiced and it became a love of mine,” said Alphonso Nichols, an Olive Garden server.

A video posted on a Facebook page called Bitchy Waiter and sent by local mother Amy Haddox, has been viewed nearly 100,000 times. Nichols didn’t expect a response like this.

10 People Play Victims of Fake Violent Robbery and Rape to Get U Visa to Avoid Deportation – Washington – WATCH:

SEATAC, Wash. – The King County sheriff said a violent robbery and sexual assault reported on October 19 at a restaurant in SeaTac was all a lie.

The elaborate hoax reported at Bob’s Burgers n’ Teriyakis was deliberately choreographed by several restaurant workers and customers, according to Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht.

“Patrons were allegedly tied up, robbed of jewelry and two female members were said to be sexually assaulted,” said Sheriff Johanknecht. “Today I can confirm to you, it was all a lie.”

Investigators believe the motive behind the hoax was to avoid deportation by obtaining a special U Visa, reserved for victims of substantial mental and physical abuse who help in detection, investigation or prosecution of a crime.

Officer yells at suspect: ‘I’m going to put a bullet in your brain!’ Shockingly K9 Violent Police bodycam video – WATCH =>

The Spokane Police Department on Wednesday released graphic body camera footage of a February incident in which an officer shouted an expletive and threatened to kill a suspect before hoisting a police dog into the cab of a pickup truck to subdue the man.

The arrest of Lucas Ellerman, 29, who is now serving time at the Airway Heights Corrections Center, triggered a citizen’s complaint and an impasse between City Council members and the Spokane Police Guild, which objected to the police ombudsman’s involvement in an internal investigation.

Spokane police Chief Craig Meidl and Capt. Tom Hendren, who leads the patrol division, presented the footage to reporters on Wednesday afternoon. They concluded that Officers Daniel Lesser and Scott Lesser had acted reasonably by pointing guns and using a dog to apprehend Ellerman, whom they believed to be armed and dangerous.
