Released Broncos practice player arrested


KUSA - Police arrested a former member of the Broncos practice squad for beating up a cab driver.

John Boyett was arrested Tuesday night in Greenwood Village on suspicion of third-degree assault, theft and harassment. The Denver Broncos released Boyett Thursday.

According to an arrest affidavit, police were called to the Sports Back bar after a drunk Boyett threatened to "punch the bartender in the face." He was ordered to leave and put into a cab.

Thirty minutes later, the cab driver called police to the 9700 block of East Arapahoe Road. The driver told police that Boyett grabbed him while the car was moving and punched him in the face.

When the cab driver pulled over, Boyett took off, but he later returned and threw a shovel at the driver, according to the affidavit. The shovel did not hit the driver.

October is the best month of the year. I mean, how amazing is it when it’s 100 degrees one day, and a crisp 76 the next? It’s like Mother Nature finally let out a deep breath and the world sprung to life with golden leaves and bright blue skies and white fluffy clouds and a soft breeze … and yes, I love October.

But what makes this month particularly important is the celebration of the year’s best holiday: Halloween. I am a fiend for it. I spend the entire month trying to find scary books, watching scary movies – even ones like “The Others” and “The Sixth Sense” in which the ending makes up the whole point of the movie – and going places that embrace the Halloween spirit.

Here are some of my local(ish) suggestions to get into the holiday spirit in the Sacramento area... Read More

Fairfield boy credited with coming to aid of dog attack victim


An 11-year-old Fairfield boy who kept his wits about him when he a woman screaming over and over for help is being commended by police.

Jonathan Garcia was home on Sept. 20 when he heard the frantic pleas and a dog barking, according to Fairfield police Watch Commander Rob Lenke. The boy called 911 and calmly gave the dispatcher his address and described what he was hearing and where.

Dispatch Supervisor Wendy Reynoso sent fire emergency responders and police to the location Jonathan gave. They found an elderly woman nearby who had been severely bitten on the arm by a dog. Lenke said officers determined the dog had broken through a neighbor's fence and attacked the woman in her yard.

Davis city council votes to send back armored vehicle


In a 3-2 vote, the Davis City Council voted Tuesday night to send a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected, or MRAP, military vehicle back to the federal government.

The belief is no matter what good use the police might have for this vehicle, it just doesn't fit in Davis.

"Our police in Davis have done a tremendous amount to build the trust in the community. They're fantastic," Davis Mayor pro Tempore Robb Davis said before the vote. "I really felt this particular piece of equipment there was a real strong risk of beginning to damage and wear away that trust."

Residents on both sides of the issue weighed in during public comment. One resident said the MRAP would keep residents safe by being "another tool for a day you hope never does come."
