Movie Style Car Crash In Phoenix

A vehicle drove off a Loop 202 freeway bridge in Phoenix and then crashed and exploded in the northbound lanes of the Arizona 51 freeway about 50-feet below early Saturday morning, authorities said.


Sheriffs Helicopter Shot Down

The Bernalillo County (New Mexico) Sheriff’s Department Helicopter crashed this week on the west side of town, a few miles from where I live. It’s now being reported (with pics) that the helicopter was shot down

The sheriff’s helicopter was scouring Paradise Hills late Friday night and into Saturday morning when the pilot heard a loud pop and his chopper started to vibrate.

That’s pretty scary, what kind of gun could bring down a helicopter? I almost imagine that some punk kids or drunks were messing with some guns and shot it down by accident, not thinking that they would come close to it.


“A state district judge was arrested early Saturday morning after police say he attempted to get around a DWI checkpoint… Albuquerque police spokesperson Trish Ahrensfield says Brennan appeared ?extremely intoxicated.?… Police say Brennan was in possession of what they believe is cocaine, and that his passenger, Patricia Mattioli, was in possession of methamphetamines.”

Nice job. The state is in a DWI big crackdown this weekend with checkpoints everywhere.
