A driver who police said had a blood-alcohol level of nearly four times the legal limit struck and critically injured 13-year-old boy in a crosswalk in front of a Glendale Park on Friday evening, authorities said. Christopher Dean Carone, 63, of Glendale, pictured in a photo released by the Glendale Police Department following his arrest on Aug. 23, 2019.

Giants’ Pablo Sandoval needs reconstructive surgery on elbow

OAKLAND — For the second straight year, Pablo Sandoval will end his season on the injured list. The team announced Saturday that Sandoval will undergo reconstructive surgery on his right elbow. That was the recommendation from Neal ElAttrache, the Los Angeles-based doctor who examined Sandoval on Wednesday. Sandoval, 33, was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 14 after his elbow did not improve following a cortisone shot he received Aug 11. The switch-hitting infielder has dealt with bone chips in his elbow since 2013, but the injury had never kept Sandoval off the field for an extended period of time. It’s possible Sandoval has played his final game with the San Francisco Giants as the infielder is set to become a free agent at the end of the year. Sandoval will likely have interest in re-signing with the Giants this offseason, but it’s unclear how president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi feels about extending Sandoval’s tenure in San Francisco. Sandoval hit .269 with 14 home runs and an .823 OPS this year while also tying the franchise record for most pinch hits (18) in…

Police seek suspect after San Jose shooting

SAN JOSE — Police are looking for a suspect after a 17-year-old was shot and wounded in West San Jose on Saturday. The shooting was reported just before noon on the 3200 block of Williamsburg Drive, according to San Jose police. That is the same block where one man was killed and another was grazed by gunfire in a shooting just after midnight Monday. The 17-year-old victim of Saturday’s shooting was taken to a hospital with “at least one” gunshot wound, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, said Sgt. Enrique Garcia. The department did not provide a description of the suspect, and said a motive for the shooting is still under investigation. Police asked anyone with information to call 911.

Peninsula photographer sexually assaulted models, DA says

REDWOOD CITY — A photographer sexually assaulted five women during photo shoots on the Peninsula, according to San Mateo County prosecutors who have filed 11 felony charges against the man. Chad Samuel Miller, 38, pleaded not guilty to the charges during an arraignment hearing Friday. The women described a similar process leading up to the assaults, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe. They had agreed to pose in photo shoots with Miller, saying they were flattered to be asked to model for a photographer, or saw it as a way to advance their modeling careers, Wagstaffe said. But Miller pushed the women to perform sex acts during the shoots, Wagstaffe said, and “when they weren’t going along, he forced it.” The alleged assaults happened between August of 2014 and June of 2016, according to prosecutors. The women got in touch with each other after one of them wrote a post accusing Miller of sexual assault on social media. Prosecutors charged Miller last December with 11 felony sex offenses. A judge found at a June preliminary hearing that there was enough evidence for…

Brazil military begins operations to fight Amazon fires

By Marcelo Silva de Sousa | Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO — Backed by military aircraft, Brazilian troops on Saturday prepared to deploy in the Amazon to fight fires that have swept the region and prompted anti-government protests as well as an international outcry. Some 44,000 troops will be available for “unprecedented” operations to put out the fires, and forces are heading to six Brazilian states that asked for federal help to contain the blazes, Defense Minister Fernando Azevedo said. The states are Roraima, Rondonia, Tocantins, Para, Acre and Mato Grosso. The military’s first mission will be the deployment of 700 troops to the area around Porto Velho, capital of Rondonia, Azevedo said. He added that the military will use two C-130 Hercules aircraft capable of dumping up to 12,000 liters (3,170 gallons) of water on fires. An Associated Press journalist flying over the Porto Velho region Saturday morning reported hazy conditions and low visibility. On Friday, the reporter saw many already deforested areas that were burned, apparently by people clearing farmland, as well as a large column of smoke billowing from one fire. The…

Big Surf, Hazardous Swimming Conditions Expected at Southern California Beaches

A southeast swell from Tropical Storm Ivo will generate elevated surf and hazardous rip currents this weekend at Southland beaches, according to the National Weather Service. Ivo was about 300 miles west-southwest of Cabo San Lucas on Saturday morning.
