ID=18041277

The mother of a teenager who was struck by an AMTRAK train in Dixon said her daughter took her own life as a result of depression and bullying.

Evalina Hernandez was 16 years old and her mom said she had tried to harm herself in the past.

"I'm so sad that nothing worked out for us," Evalina's mother, Gina Hernandez said. "That no medication, no doctors could help her. Not all of our prayers and love."

Hernandez said she called police right away when her daughter left her house Saturday. As she was talking to an officer, he had to leave to respond to a call.

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.
