    A former Stanford University swimmer who raced in the 2012 US Olympic trials has been charged with raping an intoxicated, unconscious woman on the school’s campus. The San Jose Mercury News reports Brock Allen Turner was charged Tuesday with five felony counts on suspicion of attempted rape and penetration with a foreign object. “She was lying on the ground unconscious, not moving,” Deputy District Attorney Alaleh Kianerci told the San Francisco Chronicle of the alleged victim, who was not a student at the university. Prosecutors say the attack happened Jan. 18. Two men riding bikes on campus saw an unconscious...

    Joe Biden summoned more than 200 Democratic insiders to the vice presidential residence Sunday night to chat about the 2012 triumph — but many walked away convinced his rising 2016 ambitions were the real intent of the long, intimate night. “I took a look at who was there,” said longtime New Hampshire state Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, “and said to myself, ‘There’s no question he’s thinking about the future.’” He’s right. Biden, according to a number of advisers and Democrats who have spoken to him in recent months, wants to run, or at least be well positioned to run, if and...

Michael Daves, a 19-year veteran with Pontiac police and now a Sheriff's deputy, led police on, what officers called, an ultra drunk, ultra dangerous chase. Witnesses called 911 with descriptions of a wild chase. "I mean, he's all over the road, severely," said a 911 caller. Daves was wearing a fraternal order of police uniform and badge at the time of the chase and arrest and was driving...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indiana Supreme Court ruling this week is a timely, cautionary reminder for Hoosiers who plan to consume alcohol over the holiday weekend. It is possible to be charged with public intoxication, even while in a vehicle with a designated driver. Police had arrested an Indiana woman who was drunk in the passenger seat of a car. The Supreme Court ruled that a public intoxication charge can stand against people in a car on a public street...

    When you hear the words "Hooters," "John Daly" and "extremely intoxicated" in the same sentence, you know where this story is going. In the latest chapter of Daly's longtime struggle with alcohol abuse, he was held overnight in a North Carolina jail after passing out at a Hooters restaurant... According to police, Daly "appeared extremely intoxicated and uncooperative." Daly again refused to go to the hospital and was eventually asked to leave by Hooters employees... Because Daly had no transportation, police said they held him in custody at a local jail until he sobered up.

    In the early 1990s, during and after the time his congressman father fought bank fraud charges, Newton "Jake" Ford was arrested for assaulting his father and a former girlfriend, marijuana possession and driving while intoxicated. He said Thursday morning that his actions were a reaction to the stress the family was experiencing. Later in the interview, he said the marijuana and DWI arrests were unwarranted. Fifteen years after the charges leading to Jake Ford’s arrests were dropped, details of his past have surfaced as he campaigns for the Ninth District seat once held by his father, Harold Ford Sr., and...
  • Possibly intoxicated pelican runs into windshield

    The driver was sober. The bird he hit may have been under the influence. A California brown pelican flew through the windshield of a motorist on the Pacific Coast Highway in Orange County Thursday, and wildlife officials said the bird was probably intoxicated by a chemical in the water. Though toxicology tests take several weeks, the odd bird behavior was likely the result of poisoning from domoic acid, which has been found in the ocean in the area, said Lisa Birkle, assistant wildlife director at the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach. Birds can be poisoned through eating...

    "Fresno police are taking enforcement of drunken driving laws to a new level — which officers expect will bring both success and outrage. Saturday night, the traffic unit unveiled a new operation in which plainclothes police officers stake out bars and target drunk patrons. If the heavy drinkers get behind the wheel, officers in unmarked cars follow them and call in marked police cars to pull them over."

    MONMOUTH - A Galesburg man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday for the 2002 death of a Galesburg woman who was sitting on his lap and having sex with him as he drove. At a bench trial last month in Warren County, Sonny Morris El, 32, was found innocent of reckless homicide but guilty of aggravated driving under the influence of drugs. He faced between one and 12 years in prison, but his attorney, Warren County public defender Scott Shipplett, asked Judge Greg McClintock to sentence Morris El to probation. State’s Attorney Chip Algren asked McClintock to impose...
