    At one point she appears to express shock at the officer's refusal to let her off: 'My whole life has been an official. I'm a minister's daughter and an elected official. Like, everything in my life has been an official, but OK.' 'You don't understand, I'm elected. I'm a senator. People will be, like, 'The senator got arrested',' Warren is heard telling the officers while sitting handcuffed in the back of the police car. 'That'll be, like, [expletive bleeped]. This is going to be the most famous arrest you've ever made.

    Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s senate campaign was flagged by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday for accepting “excessive” and “impermissible” donations. The FEC notified O’Rourke that a preliminary review of his campaign’s July quarterly report showed contributions from one or more individuals with addresses outside of the United States. Donations were also made that “exceed the limit” determined by the federal government. O’Rourke has 45 days to respond.

    In many ways Austin, Texas, was the last place Beto O’Rourke should have been with just over a month left until a pivotal U.S. Senate election. The deep-blue city, smack dab in the middle of a deep-red state, likely doesn’t have many of the undecided voters the Democrat, whose aggressive challenge to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz has become somewhat of a national fascination, needs to win this November. So in front of a crowd estimated at 55,000 people, a truly impressive number for a U.S. Senate race, with the Austin skyline behind him, O’Rourke fired up the crowd with an...

    A woman seen speeding through a stop sign at 60 mph (97 kph) told officers they shouldn't arrest her because she's a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl," police said. Her eyes glossy and bloodshot, Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw was slurring her words and a breathalyzer showed her blood-alcohol level at .18 percent, according to police in Bluffton, South Carolina. But Cutshaw, 32, told the arresting officer she shouldn't be jailed because she was a cheerleader, a dancer and a sorority girl who graduated from a "high accredited university." Taken to the police station in handcuffs, she described herself as a white...

    When JoJo McKibben was the victim of a hit-and-run on April 3 as she biked to work, she wasn't all that surprised. She was hit while biking by a drunk driver last summer and has come to expect that cars won't realize she's riding on two wheels. McKibben's boyfriend Brendan Sharpe said he has also been seriously injured by cars while he's biked in Austin, once in 2009 and again in 2015... Katie Delleoz, the executive director of Bike Austin, said she personally has nearly been struck at the same intersection McKibben was hit at last week

Needless to say, if the illegal alien had not been in this country, Moody would be alive today. Jose Victor Chaparro-Saenz, 38, was arrested in his vehicle not far from the accident. Alcohol was found in the vehicle and...

    New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio told CNN's Jake Tapper that it is OK to shield undocumented immigrants who drive drunk from federal authorities if it does not "lead to any other negative outcome." Tapper asked the Democratic mayor on Sunday's "State of the Union" if he would comply with federal authorities following President Trump's executive order to halt funding to cities that do not cooperate with immigration officials by presenting a specific scenario. "Jake, there are 170 offenses in that law that are listed as serious and violent crimes that lead to automatic cooperation between the city of New...

    A recovering alcoholic says she knew she wasn’t drunk when she collided with a parked vehicle in late 2015. Sober for most of a decade, her beverage of choice had become orange juice, which she imbibed with gusto during late nights at the office. The Midwestern attorney -- who asked to be called Sara to protect her career -- sometimes would skip a meal as she consumed up to a gallon of juice a day. And for about a year before the accident, she recalls feeling odd and that something was medically wrong. When Sara blew just over .10 on...

    It’s the little things that make life special, but it may also be the little things that let you know when you’ve truly developed a problem. If you happen to live in the greater Oakland, California area, this story is the sort of indicator which just might let you know it’s time to leave. We’ve seen too many stories of political correctness infecting the government to count here, and occasionally it washes over into the field of law enforcement, but this one is simply staggering. The Oakland PD had scheduled a series of sobriety checkpoints around the city for Cinco...
