The driver of the car Mr. OIson was riding in was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. He and two other passengers were injured.

Ms. Moore was hit as she lay in the street. A motorist following the car that struck her told police it looked as though the vehicle hit a speed bump, according to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s report. The witness did not realize that it was a person until getting closer, the report said.

Chief Padgett said Ms. Moore had been drinking before she was hit, but it’s not clear how much. An autopsy was expected to be done Monday.

The driver that hit Ms. Moore drove off, but officers later found and arrested the person they think is responsible. That driver also may have been drinking, authorities said.


Police department has two unused surveillance craft

GADSDEN — An Alabama police chief says he recently discovered that his department has two unmanned aerial vehicles.

Gadsden Police Chief John Crane tells the Gadsden Times that he learned two weeks ago the department has had the unmanned aerial vehicles since 2010.

The information came to light after the Federal Aviation Administration released a list of agencies certified to fly drones and unmanned aerial vehicles. The Gadsden Police Department was on the list.

Chief Crane, who was named police chief in February, said he doesn’t know why they were purchased. The cost was about $150,000, paid through a federal law enforcement grant.

Chief Crane said the department’s UAVs, which have video surveillance capability, haven’t been used because there hasn’t been a need for them.

“That’s the type of quick-thinking kid I’d like to see in the sheriff’s office in 10 or 12 years,” Clark County sheriff’s Sgt. Fred Neiman said of 13-year-old Damon Davenport. “He sees the issue and jumps into action while others gawk.”
