Flying High: New Trapeze School in Middleburg | SLIDESHOW

MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- It's only been there for a month, but the contraption Mark Dill has built in an empty Middleburg lot looks like it belongs in a "which one of these is not like the other" game.

"Yeah, I have people come up to me and say they thought the circus was coming to town," Dill said. "So I had to explain we're just a trapeze school."

The trapeze set-up gets some strange looks as it seems to tower out of nowhere off College Avenue and U.S. Highway 220.

But Dill is fine with folks staring. "Yeah, we get that a lot. Matter of fact that red van over there just pulled in to watch what we're doing."

Fla. Sued Over Ban of Doctors Asking About Guns

Fla. Sued Over Ban of Doctors Asking About Guns

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence is suing to overturn Florida's new law that bans doctors from asking patients about gun ownership.

The center filed the suit in a Miami federal court on behalf of three doctors and three physicians groups.

"The best medicine is prevention," said Florida Pediatric Society president-elect Mobeen Rathore. "Unfortunately, I have seen too many tragic outcomes of an accidental shooting."

Rathore calls the new law a gag order. His organization along with the Florida Academy of Family Physicians and The Florida College of Physicians are part of the lawsuit against the state.

Opponents of the law are calling it vague, and say the punishment doesn't fit the crime."It could go to the board of medicine. You could essentially lose your license if you violate it," said Chris Nuland, an attorney for physicians.

Georgia Man Uses Motorcycle to Jump for Jesus

Georgia Man Uses Motorcycle to Jump for Jesus

MIDDLEBURG, Fla. --  A Georgia man travels city to city, jumping for Jesus.

Aaron Ramsey took that mission to Middleburg Sunday as he used his motorcycle to leap over 9 buses at Calvary Baptist Church.

The Augusta-based preacher said he uses his motorcycle stunts to get people's attention as he spreads the word of God.  Ramsey got bitten by the daredevil bug at the age of 15 but later turned to drugs and alcohol.
    
Now that he's clean, he hopes to inspire others to be saved.

"Every waking breath that I take is only because Christ saved me 20 years ago from alcohol and drug addiction and other things that I was into.  If it wasn't for Him, I wouldn't be living today so why not use all the talents I have for Him.  I believe that He's giving me a smile.  I do," said Ramsey.

Middleburg Preacher to Jump Church Buses on Motorcycle

Middleburg Preacher to Jump Church Buses on Motorcycle

MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- A motorcycle-based preacher will be jumping for Jesus over church buses in Clay County.

Aaron Ramsey, who has been jumping motorcycles since he was 15, will be taking his show to Calvary Baptist church on Long Bay Road.

Ramsey, 45, said he's happy to perform as long as he's also allowed to preach the gospel.

He's been described as "part Billy Graham, part Evel Knievel."

According to Calvary's pastor, Ken Pledger, Ramsey performs more than a dozen shows a year, drawing up to 30,000 people, though he's performed before as few as 30.

Saturday, April 9, from 4 to 7 p.m., Ramsey will be performing several jumps, including one through a ring of fire.

Starting at 11 a.m. Sunday, he'll preach and make his jump over nine church buses.

Much like the man for whom he testifies, Ramsey is in the construction business when he's not preaching.

Update: Man who Died in Police Custody had Run-in with Police Last Year

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man who died following an incident in a motel had been in trouble with police for a similar incident in the past year.

Overnight at the Red Roof Inn on Youngerman Circle, police responded to a disoriented man complaining in the parking lot. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has identified him as Curtis James Moss.

Police said the 28-year-old retreated to his room with his girlfriend, but he was unstable and they took him into custody.

When they got Moss out of the room, police said, he struggled with them.

Chief John Hartley said officers held Moss to the ground and tried to use a total restraint appendage or TAR on him but were only able to get it around his legs.

Hartley said no Tasers or police baton were used in the incident.  Police say Moss' girlfriend and a hotel security guard have signed sworn statements stating the Tasers and baton were not used.
