FAIRFIELD (CBS13) — A man who allegedly shot at another driver during an apparent road rage incident in Fairfield has been arrested, police say. Fairfield police say a driver called 911 Sunday night to report that they had been shot at. The victim said they were on Interstate 80 when they encountered someone in a dark-colored SUV driving dangerously. For some reason, the suspect then followed the victim off the freeway onto Waterman Boulevard in Fairfield. The victim reported turning right to try and avoid a confrontation – but that’s when they heard a loud bang. After getting home, the victim found that they had indeed been shot at; a bullet that had apparently gone through the driver’s side door was found lodged into the steering wheel. Police say they also got a report about a similar SUV being involved in another apparent road rage incident earlier in the night. Armed with a good description of the suspect, as well as the license plate information, officers were soon able to track the suspect down along the 900 block of Beck Avenue. Officers then used a…

By ALEXANDRA JAFFE and DARLENE SUPERVILLE BOISE, Idaho (AP) — President Joe Biden on Monday pointed up close to wildfires burning through the West to argue for his $3.5 trillion rebuilding plans, calling year-round fires and other extreme weather a climate change reality the nation can no longer ignore. Aiming to boost support for his big rebuilding plans, the president said every dollar spent on “resilience” would save $6 in future costs. And he said it must go beyond simply restoring damaged systems and instead ensure communities can withstand catastrophic weather that doesn’t strike based on partisan ideology. “It’s not a Democrat thing. It’s not a Republican thing. It’s a weather thing,” he said. “It’s a reality. It’s serious and we can do this.” The president’s two-day Western swing comes at a critical juncture for a central plank of his legislative agenda. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are working to assemble details of the infrastructure-plus plan — and how to pay for it, a concern not just for Republicans. A key Democratic senator said Sunday that he will not vote for a package so large. The…
The 49ers seemed optimistic that the injury that sidelined Raheem Mostert after two carries in the season opener Sunday would not end his season. Devon Mostert, the wife of the 49ers running back, is hoping for good news but stunned at the negative backlash on social media. She took to her Instagram account to detail her frustrations Sunday night with the cruelty of some of the 49ers fan base. “It’s days like today where I truly contemplate not getting on social media again,” Mostert wrote. “As if today wasn’t hard enough, to get on here and have (direct messages) about how my husband should kill himself, about how he should be cut, about how he’s made of glass. I know I shouldn’t care, but wow. Wow. Wow. Wow.” Direct messages can only be viewed by the author of the account. Mostert, according to coach Kyle Shanahan Monday, won’t miss the rest of the season but will be on injured reserve for approximately eight weeks because of torn cartilage. He also missed half of the 2020 season with an ankle injury. Mostert carried the ball twice…
The NFL Draft is the best way to build a great team. In a salary-capped league, cheap, effective talent is worth its weight in gold. But apparently not red and gold. Now, there are some common league-wide beliefs about how to best select players and what expectations should be placed on those players. One of those beliefs is that top-100 picks — players selected in the first three rounds (often before compensatory picks) need to be immediate-impact players. If a player is selected that high, the team has placed a premium on their talent, and that talent needs to be prolific enough to carve out an immediate role on the 53-man roster. As far as I’ve been able to ascertain, the 49ers don’t disagree with this expectation when they enter the draft. In practice, though, their disagreement is unmistakable. The 49ers have selected five players, total, in the top-100 picks of the last two NFL Drafts. Those five players are supposed to be the team’s young core. In all, those players took 30 snaps Sunday against the Lions, with 86 percent of those snaps came…
