    Lt. Caron Nazario being forced from his vehicle in Windsor, VA Last December, Army Lieutenant Caron Nazario was on his way home with a new SUV when the lights of a police car appeared behind him. Rather than pull over on a narrow, darkened street, he proceeded just over one minute, and less than one mile, down the road and pull into the parking lot of a gas station. There he was confronted by two police officers who proceeded to hold him at gun point, pepper spray him through the window of his vehicle, and threaten him with death. According to the Associated Press, Windsor Police Officer Daniel Crocker radioed that he was pulling Nazario over because his vehicle lacked a license plate and had tinted windows. He also described Nazario’s one minute, low-speed drive to the parking lot as “eluding police.” This, to Crocker, justified calling the stop a “high-risk felony traffic stop.” Which justified calling for backup and approaching the car with gun drawn. Except that the temporary tag for Nazario’s recently purchased vehicle was clearly displayed in the rear window of the...

    A 77-year-old New Jersey woman trapped in the van she had been living in was rescued after several days on Thursday, authorities said. The woman had been sheltering in her van parked at 67 Lincoln Park, in Newark. She called police at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, saying she was unable to leave the van because it was stuck in snow, Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka and Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said.

    SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — A 61-year-old Santa Rosa man was arrested after a police chase in which he attempted to elude capture by driving at a high rate of speed in the wrong direction on a local street and racing across fairways at Foxtail Golf Course. Santa Rosa police said the pursuit began after an officer attempted a traffic stop at approximately 9:26 p.m. in the area of Petaluma Hill Road and Kawana Springs Road. The driver, identified as Anthony Catelli, fled in his vehicle, driving southbound on Petaluma Hill Road at speeds reaching 90 mph. Officers pursued Catelli as he drove southbound on Petaluma Hill Road, out of the city limits. He continued fleeing southbound onto Snyder Lane, into Rohnert Park.

    LONG BEACH (CBSLA) — Two people were killed early Saturday morning in a multi-vehicle crash involving a wrong-way driver on the southbound 405 freeway in Long Beach. The California Highway Patrol received a call early Saturday morning in Orange County of a Nissan heading north in the southbound HOV lane of the 405. By the time officers got to the car, it had collided head-on with a driver heading southbound in the HOV lane, officials said. Both the wrong-way driver and the driver of the vehicle that she hit died on the scene. 23-year-old Kaylee Perez of Los Angeles was the alleged wrong-way driver and 32-year-old Manasseh Marion of Long Beach was the passenger in the vehicle that authorities said Perez struck, according to coroner’s Lt. David Smith. Due to poor visibility, eight more cars were involved in the pile-up because they could not see the crash with enough time to stop, officials said. Seven people were taken to area hospitals — two trauma patients and five minor injury patients — after the crash, authorities said. The northbound lanes of...
    LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada Highway Patrol says an off-duty state trooper wearing a Star Wars costume while returning home from a Halloween costume party prevented a suspected drunken driver from entering a Las Vegas freeway in the wrong direction. The Highway Patrol said Trooper Britta Foesch was a designated sober driver and in her personal vehicle and wearing a Stormtrooper costume — but not its helmet — when she stopped the other vehicle and called dispatchers to get on-duty troopers to the scene early Saturday morning. The Highway Patrol said the other vehicle's driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, driving without a valid driver's license and two traffic violations. The Highway Patrol said in a statement that it doesn't recommend that citizens take matters into their own hands. But it said Foesch “is a trained professional having been a state trooper for seven years and a NHP dispatcher before that." The statement said Foesch's actions potentially saved lives.
