MIAMI - A man is facing serious charges after being accused of holding a woman hostage in North Lauderdale on Saturday afternoon. Broward Sheriff's Office detectives said they got the call at around 3:45 p.m., about a woman being threatened and held hostage at a residence in the 7700 block of Southwest Eighth Court. Authorities responded to the scene in force with multiple units, including SWAT and SVU detectives. "The female victim was able to exit the residence and is safe," BSO said. A short time later, the man inside the residence was taken into custody without incident. There were no reported injuries.
In the world of television, few shows are as beloved and iconic as Dick Wolf's Law & Order. Everyone has seen an episode, thanks to its constant syndication, and pretty much everyone knows the "Dun Dun" sound effect. How many other shows have had a scene transition sound effect enter the public consciousness?
For more than 20 years, Law & Order: SVU has captivated audiences with its never-ending series of despicable villains and the heroic detectives and lawyers who bring them to justice. Often ripping their stories straight from the headlines, SVU has featured some truly terrifying criminals over the decades, many of whom mirror the actions of the worst humanity has to offer in the real world.
Law & Order: SVU is rapidly approaching its 24th season. Judging by its dedicated viewership, however, one would think that it’s a brand new series. Though fans have seen Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay) bring hundreds of criminals to justice, they simply can’t get enough of the Special Victims Unit and Law & Order‘s unique mix of content.
‘Law & Order: SVU’ Fans Lose It Over Major Character Missing From ‘Timeline of Olivia Benson’s Romantic Relationships’
Umm, NBC, we’d like a word. If you’re looking back at all the love interests of Olivia Benson throughout the Law & Order: SVU seasons, how do you leave off Elliot Stabler?. Seriously, Mariska Hargitay, who portrays the beloved Olivia Benson, even posted a vacation photo with a Christopher Meloni mention earlier this week. She can’t escape him, even in Italy.
"Law & Order: SVU" has made its name centering on compelling crime stories since 1999. Still, the series wouldn't have maintained its faithful viewership without its rotating cast of detectives, medical examiners, and legal minds. "SVU" fans are known for voicing their opinions on which ADAs should return to the series, or whether Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) were really the best partnership. One unimpeachable fact, however, is that Fin Tutuola is a "SVU" highlight.
When thinking about weddings and Law & Order: SVU, one character comes to mind: Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson. Yet we’re not talking about Olivia right now. Looking ahead to the next season in the Dick Wolf drama, could another couple tie the knot? Anything is possible in the world of TV, of course.
Law & Order: SVU is filled with memorable characters. They’re not just skilled with capturing criminals, but they’re also known to deliver notoriously quotable one-liners on TV. Ice-T’s Detective Fin Tutuola has spoken some of the most remembered lines in the show’s history. Fin’s penchant for dropping some truly confounding nonsequiturs does everything from inspire to insult. It’s absurdity in its finest form.
Law & Order: SVU has some of the most intense storylines on network TV, much like its counterparts within the Law & Order franchise. However, every once in a while, the characters of the popular NBC detective series step away from the dramatic and give the fans some levity. And, one season 9 moment gave fans some of this much-needed levity in a hilarious way. This happens when Odafin Tutuola player, Ice-T’s own wife, Coco made a guest appearance.
