"Due to this updated policy, current ticket holders who purchased TwitchCon San Diego 2022 tickets before August 12, 2022 are fully refundable until August 19, 2022," the platform wrote on its website.

San Diego County reported just over 1,000 new cases in the last week. Hospitalizations increased by 3.7% from the week before, and deaths increased 0.6%.

The county is at a medium risk level for COVID-19 according to the state's COVID-19 site. There is no mask requirement in the county, leaving people the ability to "choose to mask at any time."

Judge tosses Wisconsin parade attack suspect from courtroom during jury selection


The man accused of intentionally plowing into a crowded Christmas parade in Wisconsin last year was tossed out of a courtroom during his trial on Tuesday for being combative.

Darrell Brooks, who is representing himself in the trial, was thrown out of the Waukesha County courtroom by Judge Jennifer Dorow following repeated outbursts on the second day of jury selection. Brooks was also thrown out of the courtroom twice on Monday.

"You haven't let me get in one sentence," Dorow said after Brooks repeatedly asked her to state her name, according to Fox 6. "You have flagrantly disregarded elementary standards of proper conduct. That conduct will not be tolerated."

Brooks was later removed from the courtroom after repeatedly asking the judge to have prosecutors answer his questions.

"No one is going to be answering these questions," Dorow told Brooks. "I'm advising you to stop asking those questions. It will be considered an interruption."

When Brooks tried to interrupt Dorow, the judge told the court, "He's interrupted. Take him to the next courtroom."

Brooks was then able to take part in the jury selection process through a video feed from the neighboring courtroom, where he continued his antics.

"You can see a monitor. He's standing. He's facing the other direction. He's yelling — I can't hear him — but it appears he is yelling," Dorow told the prospective jurors. "I muted him because of his interruptions of the court. I have the ability to mute, to unmute."

Brooks faces 77 criminal charges, including six counts of first-degree intentional homicide for the Christmas parade attack in Waukesha on Nov. 21, in which six people were killed and dozens more were injured. If convicted, he faces up to six life sentences for the murder charges.

Brooks attempted to plead not guilty by reason of insanity after initially pleading not guilty but withdrew the insanity plea last month and asked to represent himself instead. Dorow granted the request last week, ruling that Brooks possessed "the minimal competency necessary to conduct his own defense," according to Fox News.
