Vehicle submerged in Colorado pool inspires perfect response from local police

Police in Lakewood say the incident occurred when a teen driver accidentally put the vehicle in reverse. (Lakewood Police)

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (KDVR) – No one was hurt after a vehicle ended up in a pool in Colorado on Thursday afternoon.

Police in Lakewood say the incident occurred when a teen driver accidentally put the vehicle — an Infiniti — in reverse. The driver and the adult passenger got out safely. The teen driver has been cited for careless driving.

Police thanked fire crews for helping with the follow-up work, as well as a local towing company that assisted officers in getting the car out of the water.

The incident, while serious, also inspired a few “carpool” jokes on Twitter. But the Lakewood Police offered up their own knee-slapper, which they deemed to be the best possible one-liner.

“Just FYI, the best line for this is ‘Check out our new Infiniti Pool.’ Everyone else is battling for second place.”

DC police ask for help to ID vehicle used in shooting death of 6-year-old

D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee asked for the public’s help in identifying a silver sedan used in a Friday night drive-by shooting that left six-year-old Nyiah Courtney dead.

Contee also said a reward no less than $60,000 is being offered to anyone who can provide information leading to an arrest in the crime that killed the girl and wounded five others.

“Together we will do whatever it takes to close this case in a swift and professional manner,” Contee said.

Contee said Nyiah would have been starting the first grade this fall. “And now that won’t happen,” he said.

He urged the community to come together to curb the ongoing gun violence in the city.

“We have a collective responsibility to ensure our children have every opportunity to be safe from violence. I am asking that we all stand together and say no more. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired,” Contee said.

Police released a video Saturday showing a silver sedan driving through the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X avenues in Congress Heights at approximately 11 p.m. Friday. Contee described the event as “a drive-by shooting.”

In total, six people were shot, including Nyiah Courtney, who was taken to a hospital where she would be pronounced dead. Three men and two women were also taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Contee and Bowser urged city residents to help police identify the owner of the vehicle, its driver and other passengers.

“We ask that people take a moment to see if they recognize the car and provide tips or information to bring closure for Nyiah,” Contee said.

Justice for Nyiah was the news conference theme.

“We know from past instances that the community can help us close cases by sharing information or simply reposting images,” he added.

The FBI and the ATF are partnering with D.C. police to help identify the shooter. The agencies also contributed towards the reward.

During the news conference officials acknowledged they did not yet know what the motive for the shooting was.

Community members attending the news conference said they wanted more from the police.

“I charged the police with a simple thing,” Bowser said. “What I believe is we don’t let people get away with murder in our town. We have to stand up against it. We don’t let anybody get away with murder. And we don’t do street justice because then other innocent people get caught up in it. Law enforcement is responsible for arresting and ensuring justice.”

Woman charged with speeding, striking police vehicle south of Dewey

A Magnolia woman faces charges after police said she crashed into a Delaware State Police vehicle July 18 south of Dewey Beach.

Angela Robinson, 44, was driving a 2017 Lexus ES350 at 3:10 a.m. going northbound in the left lane of Route 1 near Conquest Road when she struck a fully marked Delaware State Police Tahoe operated by an 11-year veteran who was also driving in the left lane, said Sr. Cpl. Jason Hatchell of the Delaware State Police.

Hatchell said Robinson was traveling at a high rate of speed when she struck the rear of the state police Tahoe, causing the Lexus to exit the roadway. The Lexus slid through the grass center median, rotated counterclockwise about 90 degrees, and came to a rest in the median, Hatchell said. As a result of the impact, he said, the state police Tahoe was violently pushed forward until coming to rest in the northbound shoulder of Route 1. The trooper and Robinson were the sole occupants in their respective vehicles. The trooper was transported to Beebe Medical Center for nonlife-threatening injuries.

Robinson was not injured as a result of the collision. During the investigation, Hatchell said, police determined Robinson was operating her vehicle under the influence. She was transported to Troop 7 where she was charged with second-degree vehicular assault, driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving a vehicle at unreasonable or imprudent speed, and failure to have insurance identification in possession. She was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 and committed to to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in default of $3,300 cash bond.

The northbound lanes of Route 1 were closed for about three hours while the collision was investigated and the roadway was cleared.

Anyone with information regarding this collision should contact Cpl./3 Argo with the Delaware State Police Troop 7 Collision Reconstruction Unit by calling 302-703-3264, or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or delaware.crimestoppersweb.com.

28-year-old man arrested after police chase ends in vehicle crashing into a building

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – A dramatic scene unfolded directly across from the WAFB studio in downtown Baton Rouge after a driver reportedly jumped from a moving vehicle during a police chase, causing a major crash.

According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, Dedrick Weatherspoon, 28, was arrested and later charged.

Weatherspoon is facing a list of charges including aggravated flight from an officer, aggravated criminal damage to property, equipment violation, display of license plate, driving with suspended drivers license and failure to register vehicle.

An officer at the scene says the chase began as a routine traffic stop. Weatherspoon allegedly refused to stop and eventually bailed from the vehicle.

The vehicle then continued moving and crashed into the Rabenhorst Funeral Home located directly across from WAFB.

Along with damage to the building, the vehicle also hit a power pole, causing a temporary disruption to power service.

A footage from a security camera in the Channel 9 parking lot, watch now as a 28-year-old jumps from a moving vehicle as police chased him next to the television station late Thursday night. “I just seen him coming up the street. You know, it was about eight cop cars just following him. Next thing you knew, he ended up hitting the pole and run into the building,” says Darian Thomas who was incident last night.

Multiple power crews spent hours trying to get things repaired—even having to cut off power to many businesses in the area for a while. Those power interruptions might even last until tomorrow as more repairs are made. “You have a number of commercial businesses and other businesses out there and the impact of these facilities that’s why the repairs are going to take a lot longer into tomorrow because of the way the impact and the damage occurred as well as the type of equipment that was impact,” says David Freese who is a Spokesperson with Entergy Louisiana.

For crews to safely complete the repairs to electric equipment near the intersection of St. Joseph and Government, an outage has been scheduled for Saturday, July 10 around 8 a.m. It will last 4-5 hours and affect approximately 100 customers in the immediate area of the damaged equipment.

Again, we appreciate our customers’ patience as we work to make the repairs quickly and, above all, safely.

Portland protesters smash windows of police car, flatten tires after officer-involved shooting: officials

Portland police have released more information about Thursday night’s fatal officer-involved shooting and the events that followed when a mob of protesters took to the city’s streets, where some flattened tires and broke windows on at least one police car in the area, authorities said.

Details of any protest-related arrests were not available as of early Friday morning, but authorities overnight shared images of a police car that had its tires flattened and windows shattered by what they described as a “hostile crowd.” 

In an updated summary of events, the Portland Police Bureau said early Friday its officers were dispatched just after 7 p.m. Thursday to conduct a welfare check on “a white adult male dressed in all black at a motel.” Police did not provide any other information about what led to the shooting other than to say: “After officers arrived with paramedics, they encountered a man matching that description and an officer involved shooting took place.”

Police: Ship Bottom Beach Patrol vehicle hits two Pennsylvania girls; driver charged with reckless driving

A Ship Bottom Beach Patrol vehicle struck a pair of teenage girls from Pennsylvania who were laying on the New Jersey beach a little after 1 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, local authorities said on Facebook. The incident occurred at the 26th Street Beach of the Ocean County town, which is located on Long Beach Island.

The girls’ names were not provided, but Ship Bottom police said that the victims were a 14-year-old female from Fleetwood, Berks County and a 15-year-old female from Leestwood. The two girls were taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune City, Monmouth County where they were treated and eventually released from the hospital.

The driver of the vehicle, 22-year-old John Purdon of Barnegat, Ocean County, was charged with reckless driving pending a court date.

The town also issued a statement on its Facebook page on Saturday to send well wishes to the two female victims and their families.

Ship Bottom’s beaches are only open to residents and property owners of the town for walking or jogging purposes due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many other Jersey Shore towns have taken similar measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 across the region.

Residents and property owners of the town were given “disaster reentry” placards that must be shown to local authorities when asked, according to the Associated Press. It’s unclear if the girls had a placard with them while on the beach.
