Man from violent arrest video sentenced for resisting arrest and robbery

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A man who was seen being repeatedly hit by San Diego police officers in a widely-viewed video was sentenced to more than four years yesterday. 20-year-old Trenelle Cannon plead guilty to resisting arrest and separate robbery and burglary charges. Back in May, a video surfaced of police punching Cannon during his arrest. The video raised concerns of police brutality and excessive use of force. The police then responded to the video saying it didn’t show Cannon tackling an officer moments before. No one suffered serious injuries during the arrest. Categories: Local San Diego News

San Diego mayor says scooter companies are violating speed rules

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Lime Bike, Bird, Skip Scooters and Lyft have violated its terms of operation in regards to geofencing and other scooter operating restrictions, said the City of San Diego on Friday. Geofencing forces riders to slow down to 8 miles per hour in busy areas “like Balboa Park and our boardwalks,” San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer wrote on Twitter. Last fall, the mayor made a proposal to require geofencing at nine locations in San Diego including areas in downtown and boardwalks in Pacific Beach, Mission Beach and La Jolla.

The companies were ordered to comply with geofencing rules by July 29 or cease operations in San Diego. Categories: Local San Diego News
