GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert’s son arrested and is facing 22 charges in connection with vehicle break-in spree

One of U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert’s sons was arrested Tuesday on charges related to a “string of vehicle trespasses and property thefts,” according to the Rifle Police Department. Police arrested Tyler Jay Boebert, 18, about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, the department said in a Facebook post Tuesday evening. He is facing charges of criminal possession of ID documents of multiple victims, conspiracy to commit a felony and “over 15 additional misdemeanor and petty offenses,” the department stated. According to online jail records for the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, Tyler Boebert faces 22 charges, which also include contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Jail records show he is still in custody. No bond information is listed. This is the second time this year a member of the Republican representative’s family has been arrested. Jayson Boebert, Lauren Boebert’s ex-husband, was arrested on assault charges after he shoved his thumb into the mouth of one of their sons during an altercation in January, just days after the pair had a public incident at a western Colorado restaurant, Garfield County sheriff’s deputies said in an affidavit filed in January.

Officials say Alameda County needs recall reform. So why aren’t they making a case for it on the ballot?

A measure that Alameda County officials have argued is necessary to overhaul outdated recall rules for elected and appointed officials is on the ballot next week. But, oddly, none of the board members or county officers who chose to put Measure B before voters are publicly advocating for it — likely dimming its chances of passing. “There are great arguments to be made” for the changes, said Joshua Spivak, a senior research fellow at Berkeley Law’s California Constitution Center. “It would just be great if they actually made them.” The origin of Measure B dates back to last October, when County Counsel Donna Ziegler submitted a memo to the board of supervisors stating that Alameda County’s recall procedures were archaic, outdated, and unconstitutional. At the time, board president Nate Miley said the county had been reviewing its procedures because of the high profile effort to replace District Attorney Pamela Price. According to Ziegler, the county’s laws contained decades-old rules that were “a detriment to ensuring lawful, competent, and timely recalls.” Her report recommended that the county adopt the state’s recall language instead. That language would raise

South Bay assemblymember’s bill would compel rights for families after police violence

SAN JOSE — After hearing that their daughter had been shot by a San Jose police officer, Jim Showman says, he and his wife Vicki were desperate for news about her condition. Sharon Watkins remembers her son Phillip who was shot and killed by San Jose police officers in 2015 while suicidal and experiencing a psychiatric emergency. Watkins now does advocacy work for Silicon Valley De-Bug where she was photographed, Tuesday, April 4, 2023. (Karl Mondon/Bay Area News Group)  Sharon Watkins remembers having that same feeling when she heard that her son, Phillip, had been rushed to a hospital after he was shot by police officers. That urgency, they say, led them to agree with whatever police requested of them in the moment, including answering detailed questions about their children’s experiences with mental illness. They cooperated, they say, in the hope of getting answers about whether their child was alive, or a chance to see them one last time. Showman says he was kept in the dark about his daughter Diana’s condition until he told investigators that her bipolar disorder could make her potentially violent

Trevor May on Oakland A’s owner John Fisher: ‘He really hasn’t done anything successfully’

OAKLAND — Trevor May is finally free from the Oakland A’s and owner John Fisher. “Like a bird, finally let loose to fly,” May said Saturday at Fans Fest, a celebration of Oakland sports fans at Jack London Square. “Last year was very hard. I just had a lot of stuff I was worrying about.” Last season, May was the highest-paid player on the A’s and one of the team’s veteran leaders who was trying to keep things positive in a difficult year for him personally, having stepped away for about a month to deal with mental health issues, and for the franchise, which announced its plans to leave for Las Vegas. It felt impossible for May to speak honestly about playing for a team that ended up with the 10th-most losses in MLB history while using an MLB-low payroll. There was plenty he wanted to say, but couldn’t. Like on that Tuesday night in June, when more than 27,000 A’s fans showed up for a reverse boycott to protest Fisher’s decision to move the team to Vegas. Fans chanted “sell the team.” They were

Blizzard warning issued in Sierra, areas of Butte, Tehama counties

CHICO — A storm warning has been upgraded to a blizzard warning by the National Weather Service Sacramento, scheduled to begin Thursday and end Sunday in the Sierra Nevada including parts of Butte and Tehama counties 2,000 feet elevation and above. The warning cites dangerous and impossible mountain travel with 5-10 feet of snow forecast above 5,000 feet and 1-4 feet above 3,000 feet. “This will be the coldest storm of the season so far,” with snow levels dropping into Sierra foothill communities, said meteorologist Courtney Carpenter in a video address, “different from a lot of the warmer systems we’ve seen so far this season.” In some foothill communities, tree damage and downed power lines may result from a combination of windy conditions and low elevation snow, according to Carpenter. The Paradise ridge, which Butte County declared an emergency in 2023 because of snowfall, appears to be just outside the blizzard warning area, according to Meteorologist Karl Swanberg. Precipitation in Paradise on Thursday and Friday, during the wettest part of the storm, is forecast to come in the form of rain rather than snow, Swanberg

Tehama County Animal Care Center pauses stray dog intakes amidst influx

RED BLUFF — Due to an increase in animals, the Tehama County Animal Care Center has temporarily paused dog intakes, but there are plans to restart the process on Friday. Animal Care Center Manager Christine McClintock confirmed her department met with the county’s heads, county counsel, and all the different animal regulation agencies the care center contracts with. The care center made it known they would be closing the shelter’s stray dog intakes for a week. According to the care center, 75 stray dogs were brought in over eight days, and only 10 of those intakes returned home. The care center said it needs to focus on getting the extra dogs, 9 of which are puppies, one delivered, into foster, rescue, or adoptive homes. Since the influx, the care center has had virtually no complaints from the public, and staff have tried their best to assist in returning dogs to the field. “We have 47 kennels, so 75 dogs on top of all the dogs that were already there, and we are already quite overcrowded, just was not feasible to ensure that we were caring

Listen Live: Supreme Court hears case over ban on bump stocks for firearms

Politics By Melissa Quinn February 28, 2024 / 9:12 AM EST / CBS News CBS News Live CBS News Live Live Washington — The Supreme Court is convening Wednesday to consider a challenge to a Trump-era ban on bump stocks for firearms put in place in the wake of the 2017 mass shooting at a music festival in Las Vegas. At issue in the case is whether a bump stock is a “machine gun” under federal law. The dispute is the second involving firearms that the Supreme Court will hear this term, but it does not involve the Second Amendment. Instead, the court fight raises a question of statutory interpretation and whether the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had the authority to outlaw bump stocks. Oral arguments in the case known as Garland v. Cargill will get underway at 10 a.m. ET. Audio of the arguments will stream live in the player above. Machine guns have been largely prohibited since 1986, and are defined under federal law as “any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot

Prince Harry loses case against U.K. government over his security

World February 28, 2024 / 7:41 AM EST / AP Latest on King Charles III’s diagnosis Latest on King Charles III’s diagnosis, Prince Harry reunion 02:49 Prince Harry was not improperly stripped of his publicly funded security detail during visits to Britain after he gave up his status as a working member of the royal family and moved to the U.S., a London judge ruled Wednesday. Justice Peter Lane said in the High Court that the decision to provide security to Harry on a case-by-case basis was not unlawful, irrational or unjustified. The Duke of Sussex claimed he and his family were endangered when visiting the U.K. because of hostility toward him and his wife on social media and relentless hounding by news media. His lawyer argued that the government group that evaluated Harry’s security needs acted irrationally and failed to follow its own policies that should have required a risk analysis of the duke’s safety. A government lawyer said Harry had been treated fairly and was still provided protection on some visits, citing a security detail that guarded him in June 2021 when he

The Lakers and Clippers are ready to share their home for the final time

Ten seasons ago, the Clippers opened their preseason by visiting four of their Western Conference rivals. They went to Portland, Utah, Sacramento and finally to Phoenix before they opened the doors to their home arena. Fans had a lot of reasons to be excited — the team hired Doc Rivers in the offseason to coach and was about to enter the season as bonafide contenders. The season, Rivers felt, was about to be theirs. And, their arena should reflect that. So, the Clippers covered the banners at Staples Center celebrating the Lakers’ championships and the retired numbers of their all-time greats, and instead featured images of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the rest of that Clippers’ core. “I didn’t look at it as a banner thing,” Rivers said before the preseason home opener. “I look at it as putting our guys up. … It’s our arena when we play. I thought it would be good that we saw our guys. No disrespect to them, but when we play, it’s the Clipper arena as far as I know.” But it was absolutely a banner thing —

The 87-year-old pope was pushed in a wheelchair into the audience hall at the Vatican earlier in the day, appearing weary as he dropped heavily into his seat. In recent weeks he has walked the short distance to his chair, but he has been struggling with mild flu symptoms over the past week.
