Hello everyone. Welcome to Sign1News. I’m Crystal Cousineau. Here are your top stories for today. NASA astronaut Anne McClain is accused of
improperly accessing her wife’s bank account while aboard the International Space Station. It could be the first allegation of a space
crime. According to the New York Times, McClain admitted
to NASA investigators she accessed the account belonging to Summer Worden. She says she was monitoring the account to
ensure the well-being of Worden’s son, who the couple had been raising together. McClain says she had Worden’s permission and
used the same password to access the account as always. However Worden claims McClain committed identity
theft but admits she didn’t see any moved or spent funds. And Worden’s parents say McClain is conducting
a campaign to try to gain custody of their daughter’s son. Worden filed for divorce in 2018 after McClain
accused her of assault. She said that accusation was also part of
McClain’s alleged attempt to gain custody of the child. According to the Atlanta Police Department,
six people were injured when lightning struck a tree during the PGA Tour championship golf
tournament at East Lake golf club on Saturday. Tournament officials suspended play when they
spotted severe weather rolling in. The PGA posted messages on the scoreboards
around the course warning spectators of the weather threat and advising people to leave
the course and seek shelter. The six people injured stayed on the course
and sought shelter under a tree instead. Thirty minutes after play was suspended, dual
lightning struck the tree the spectators are standing under. The lighting knocked debris off the tree,
injuring the six spectators. They are all taken to the hospital alert,
conscious and breathing. NFL fans were shocked when Indianapolis Colts
quarterback Andrew Luck announced he’s done. He’s out of the game for good. Luck announced his retirement Saturday night. According to ESPN, Luck was supposed to officially
break the news on Sunday. But information leaked out during last night’s
preseason game against the Chicago Bears. Some fans didn’t take the news lightly. They booed Luck when he exited the field following
the Colts loss. During his press conference after the game,
Luck got a little emotional as he explained his reason for retiring. He said for the past four years he has been
in a vicious, unrelenting cycle of injury-pain-rehab, injury-pain-rehab. He led the Colts to the playoffs in his first
three seasons in the NFL. But since 2015, injuries have kept him on
the bench for several games including the entire 2017 season. Luck says due to those injuries, it just wasn’t
fun playing football anymore. He also said the injuries prevented him from
living the life he wants to live off the field. Luck says this was the hardest decision of
his life but he knows it was the right one. Twenty-two-year-old Dylan John Bennett was
arrested Saturday night in connection with the killing of his parents, former NFL player
Barry Bennett and his wife Carol Bennett. They were found shot to death in their home
in Long Praire, Minnesota. Authorities received a 911 call from a family
friend who went to the home after Barry Bennett did not return the friend’s texts or phone
calls. Investigators also discovered Dylan Bennett
had bought an airline ticket to Cancun, Mexico earlier this week. They tracked his cell phone, credit card and
ATM activity in Cancun and alerted Mexican authorities to his location. The FBI will now transport Bennett back to
Minnesota where he will face 2 counts of second- degree murder without premeditation. Disney fans are getting their first look at
