Question of the Day
Mr. Van Kuyk was sitting on his front steps in the city’s Point Breeze section when police pulled over a vehicle. The student began taking pictures to fulfill a course assignment for shooting at night. He was not using a flash and obeyed one police command to move back, Mr. Osterreicher said.
But officers then asked Mr. Van Kuyk to stop taking photos. When the student asserted his right to use the camera on public street, one officer reportedly said: “Public domain, yeah we’ve heard that before.” Police allegedly pushed, shoved and threw Mr. Van Kuyk to the ground before handcuffing him.
Storm leaves outages; motorist rescued
LOS ANGELES — Californians cleaned up Monday from a storm that hit many areas in frenzied bursts, flooding streets and freeways, cutting power, and toppling trees and utility poles.
Crews rescued an injured driver whose pickup truck plunged 300 feet off a snow-covered Southern California mountain highway.
After the truck was spotted on a snow-covered slope below Angeles Forest Highway early Monday, the woman was airlifted to a hospital.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said the driver had what appeared to be critical injuries.
About 6,500 people in Southern California were still without power Monday.
The rain ended Sunday’s Auto Club 400 NASCAR race in Fontana 71 laps early. There wasn’t a single crash in the race, but the crowd found plenty of mishaps on freeways around the raceway as they headed home.
The storm dumped nearly an inch of rain in downtown Los Angeles and up to 3 inches in Malibu and the Santa Monica Mountains.
Slaying suspect deported by judge six years ago
SAN FRANCISCO — The suspect in last week’s slayings of five people in San Francisco had been ordered to be deported by an immigration judge six years ago, after he served a prison sentence for armed robbery, federal officials said Monday.
But they said he remained in the U.S. because the Vietnamese government declined to provide the travel documents that immigration authorities needed to process his removal.
