Sgt. Jay Struble says a good Samaritan, 57-year-old Craig Lafleur of Kingsburg, saw the SUV, pulled it to the edge of the pool by its roof rack and broke its back window. He then helped Ms. Gwyn out of the vehicle before it sank.
Sgt. Struble told the Merced Sun Star Gwyn had no recollection of the crash.
Judge skeptical of challenge to San Francisco nudity law
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge considering San Francisco’s public nudity ban rejected arguments Thursday that simply disrobing in public was protected political speech akin to flag burning.
U.S. District Judge Edward Chen made his comments during a 90-minute hearing held to consider the new law requiring the covering of “genitals, perineum, and anal region” that is set to go into effect Feb. 1. A narrowly divided Board of Supervisors passed the law last month after residents and visitors to the city’s Castro district complained about nudity in a plaza.
Judge Chen said Thursday it takes more than simply disrobing in public to make a political statement. The judge said he would issue a written ruling before the end of the month.
