A woman who was visiting Atlanta to celebrate her birthday had no idea her special day would turn into a nightmare. While at Opera nightclub, Jasmine Eiland was sexually assaulted by another club goer on the dance floor. Unbeknownst to the man assaulting her, 34-year-old Dominique Williams, Eiland was streaming her birthday festivities on Facebook Live.

In the video, Eiland, who is from East St. Louis, IL,  is obviously in and out of consciousness. Williams allegedly assaulted Eiland on an outside patio area as well. Someone can be heard in the back of the video telling Williams to stop. Williams turned himself into authorities on January 29th and was denied bond last week.

“I figured that if I had not come forward and put my face forward, what would the next woman do,” Eiland told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Williams’ lawyer, Shequel Ross, described him as a family man and that Eiland is targeting him due to wanting a pay day.

“He takes care of his 6-year-old, as well as his grandmother who is 78 and his 11-year-old,” Ross told Fox 5 Atlanta. We are conducting a full-fledged investigation. She has a financial interest. The next day she hired an attorney and is alleging to sue the nightclub.”

Since the attack, Eiland has filed a lawsuit against Opera nightclub claiming that there wasn’t adequate security for their three-story space.

“The safety of all our guests is our main priority and we have always upheld the highest standard of security each night,” Opera’s lawyer Bryan Knight said in a statement to the AJC. “We have worked diligently with the Atlanta Police Department to assist with this ongoing investigation. The legal action filed today involving the club will be defended vigorously.”

After Eiland came forward, another woman accused Williams of sexual assault. The unidentified woman said that she was sexually assaulted after having two drinks with him. Williams is now facing charges for this attack as well.

Jeffrey Scores With Dior Men Pop-up in Atlanta

Kim Jones‘ arrival in March as artistic director of ready-to-wear and accessories at Dior Men energized the luxury brand, just as Super Bowl LIII has energized the city of Atlanta. Jeffrey Kalinsky, founder and president of Jeffrey, on Thursday night capitalized on the fan-favorite brand with a Dior Men pop-up shop at his inaugural store in Atlanta.
“We’re feting Kim’s first collection,” Kalinsky said, citing guests such as Future, Young Thug, Gunna, SouthSide, Wheezy, Phaedra Parks, Lil Van, Bernice Burgos, Brielle and Ariana Biermann. “He’s a major talent and he’s infused so much energy into Dior Men. I don’t know how many hundreds of people were in the store last night. By 7 p.m. we were jamming. Everybody was talking about the traffic for private planes. There wasn’t a place to park.
“It’s just amazing the commerce around the Super Bowl,” Kalinsky said from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, where he was waiting for a flight to Miami, admitting that he may skip the Super Bowl. “It’s been wonderful for fashion in Atlanta. The last time the Super Bowl was in Atlanta 19 years ago and we got wonderful customers from all over the country.”
Kalinsky said that dynamic is magnified today because “you have all the

A Winter Storm and Thousands of Super Bowl Fans Are Bearing Down on Snow-Shy Atlanta

(ATLANTA) — Five years after cars, trucks and school buses became marooned on Atlanta freeways in what became known as “snow jam ,” another winter storm is threatening the city — just as thousands of fans begin pouring into town for Super Bowl 53.

A winter storm watch goes into effect at 4 a.m. Tuesday for Atlanta, a city known for grinding to a halt even in relatively light snowfalls.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Monday said state offices in more than 30 counties in the northern part of the state would be closed Tuesday, including those in the Atlanta area.

The National Weather Service projects that up to an inch (2.5 centimeters) of snow is possible Tuesday in Atlanta, with up to 2 inches (5 centimeters) in far northern suburbs. Forecasters warn of the possibility of ice-glazed roads and highways.

The potential for black ice is “the overriding concern,” said Homer Bryson, director of the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency.

“Temperatures are going to plummet,” the governor said at a Monday news conference.

“It’s very similar to what we saw in 2014 where the roadways will not have time to dry off before the moisture or precipitation on them refreezes,” Kemp said. “And that’s when you have black ice, and that’s what causes wrecks, which causes gridlock and public safety issues, injuries.”

Sunday’s Super Bowl will be played in downtown Atlanta in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which has a roof. The roof will be open if weather permits, officials have said.

There’s a 40 percent chance of showers Sunday, but highs will be near 58 degrees (14 Celsius). That’s slightly warmer than average for Feb. 3 in Atlanta, climate records show.

But forecasters say the more immediate threat is Tuesday, when roads could be treacherous.

“It is often easy to pass judgment on how we in Georgia deal with snow and ice, but for those from the north what you do know is that an ice event is very different than a snow event,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said Monday. “And because we don’t want a repeat of 2014, we have already begun to pretreat our streets and are paying particularly attention to our sidewalks because we do know that we will have many visitors in our tourist areas.”

Forecasters were uncertain how widespread the snowfall will be.

“Some uncertainty continues regarding amounts of snow accumulations and how far south and east the threat may extend,” the weather service said in a Monday update on the approaching storm.
