Investigators told the family they found his Infiniti sedan unlocked at a nearby park. Inside the car...

Shortly after 10 p.m., Secret Service said the driver crashed their truck into security barriers on the north side of Lafayette Square at 16th Street.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo.

The judge wrote that there was enough evidence for those counts to move forward. The three counts not moving forward are “isolated incidents to which...
