An officer found Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl linebacker John Abraham passed out behind the wheel of his black Dodge Challenger at around 4 p.m. ET on June 29 at the intersection of an Atlanta suburb after he had left the Pink Pony strip club, according to the police report.

More details about Abraham's arrest on a DUI charge in an Atlanta suburb emerged Tuesday, including that it took the officer "several" minutes to wake Abraham, whose speech was "very mumbled" and at time slurred, according to the report.

Abraham appeared confused and "rambled while speaking," the officer wrote in the report.

Abraham said he had two drinks and told offers at the scene that he had been waiting on someone to pick him up but said that person never arrived. Abraham also said he didn't feel safe to drive and didn't want to drive, according to the report.

Abraham failed a series of field sobriety tests, including the walking and balancing tests. He also couldn't recite the alphabet from C to X, according to the report, finally giving up. All of which led him to being arrested.

After initially agreeing to a breath test, Abraham changed his mind and refused to take it, the report stated.

An officer took Abraham's South Carolina license, which was suspended.

A 24-year-old man from Toledo was charged with careless driving after being caught watching a video while driving down Highway 401.

Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police stopped a speeding Dodge Challenger travelling eastbound shortly after 7 p.m Thursday.

When the officer approached the vehicle, he realized the driver’s attention was directed toward a video displayed on an entertainment device mounted to the windshield in front of the driver, OPP said.

“This is definitely not safe,” said Chatham-Kent OPP Const. Janine Belanger. “He’s putting everyone on the road at risk.”

Mohammed Alharbi was charged with careless driving, contrary to the Highway Traffic Act.

Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation states physical interaction with devices, including dialing, scrolling through contacts or programming a GPS, is not permitted unless calling 911. Hands-free devices are allowed, provided drivers aren’t manipulating the devices apart from activating or deactivating them.

Newspapers, books and other forms of material taking the driver’s attention off the road are other forms of the distracted driving, Belanger said.

PORTAGE, MI -- A Dodge Charger carrying at least two people authorities suspect of swiping a computer from WalMart led police on a pursuit along eastbound I-94 that reached speeds of more than 100 mph Monday morning.

Sgt. Bryan Mayhew of Portage Public Safety said police got a call from WalMart shortly before 3 a.m. with the description of the car employees believed to be involved in a shoplifting incident.

At least one desktop computer was taken from WalMart. As one of the suspects was leaving, he alluded to having a handgun and threatened employees if they tried to stop him, authorities said.

The car, a white Charger with out-of-state license plates, was spotted by officers on Oakland Drive but the driver took off on eastbound I-94 when the officer turned on lights and siren, Mayhew said. Although officers kept up with the car as it exited at Sprinkle Road and turned west onto Michigan Avenue, the pursuit ended when police lost sight of the car, he said.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Portage Department of Public Safety at 329-4567 or Silent Observer at 343-2100.

Officers fired shots at a suspect in a Metairie convenience-store robbery at the end of a high-speed northbound chase across the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Saturday night, Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Col. John Fortunato said.

The suspect -- Ranell Joseph, 26, of 110 Oakridge Avenue, Apt. D, Donaldsonville -- was not wounded, he said. The robbery of the Circle K at 330 Veterans Memorial Blvd. that occurred Saturday around 11 p.m.

Fortunato said a Circle K employee told police that the robber, whose face was partially covered, reached into a backpack, implied he had a weapon and demanded money. The suspect took cash from the register and fled.

Three minutes later, a patrol officer spotted a gray Dodge Challenger near the intersection of Veterans and Causeway boulevards. The officer tried to stop the Challenger, but the driver sped away, eventually entering the northbound lanes of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, Fortunato said.

Causeway police said the suspect was driving faster than 100 mph.

Police deployed spike strips near the end of the bridge, and the Challenger rolled to a stop after driving over the strips, Fortunato said.

Causeway and Mandeville police approached the car with their weapons drawn, he said, and the suspect accelerated in their direction.

Officers fired at the suspect; Fortunato said he was not hit.

The suspect's car struck an unoccupied Causeway police unit and came to a stop.

Joseph was treated at LSU Public Hospital for injuries he suffered after crashing into the Causeway police car. His injuries did not appear to be serious, Fortunato said.

Joseph was booked with first-degree robbery in connection with the Circle K incident on Sunday. Fortunato said more charges could follow as the investigation into that incident continues.

Joseph also was booked Sunday with the following:

  • Attempted first-degree robbery of O-Reilly Auto Parts, 600 Ames Blvd. in Marrero. Incident occurred Friday at 7:44 p.m.
  • Attempted simple robbery of New 2 U Shell, 6200 West Bank Expressway, Marrrero. Incident occurred Friday at 7:46 p.m.
  • Attempted armed robbery of Popeyes, 7100 West Bank Expressway, Marrero. Incident occurred Friday at 8:05 p.m.
  • Armed robbery of Burger King, 4933 Veterans Blvd., Metairie. Incident occurred Friday at 11:17 p.m.
  • First-degree robbery of an Exxon Station, located at 3451 Williams Boulevard, Kenner. Incident occurred Friday at 11:54 p.m.

Fortunato said the suspect in all those incidents was described as a man between 20 and 30 years old, standing between 5 feet, 6 inches tall and 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing between 120 and 160 pounds. He always had something covering part of his face, Fortunato said.

The suspect sometimes displayed a black or black- and silver-colored handgun, he said. The suspect fled in a gray or black Dodge Challenger.

http://fox2now.com/2014/10/22/50-mile-speeding-muscle-car-chase-ends-after-suspect-runs-out-of-gas/

 


NASHVILLE, IL (KTVI) – It was like something out of a movie.  A multi-car heist with a chase that spanned nearly 50 miles from Nashville, Illinois, to St. Louis.  One of the suspects got caught because he ran out of gas, police said. His stolen Dodge Challenger ironically died next to the Jack Schmitt Chevrolet dealership.

The suspect ran out of the car.  Police caught him hiding in the back of a new SUV on the Jack Schmitt lot.  There were four stolen cars and at least four suspects.  Police recovered two, new, ultra-fast Dodge Challengers. The suspects likely targeted fast cars to help them make fast getaways but didn’t give much thought to gas mileage, police said.

“They are quick.  Fortunately for us, too, they suck the gas down.  They ran out of gas before they could get to where they were going,” said Nashville, IL, Police Chief, Brian Fletcher.

The suspects also stole a new maroon Mustang and a new silver or white Ford Focus, Fletcher said.  All four vehicles were stolen from the Holzhauer dealership in Nashville around 11:30pm Tuesday.

The thieves plowed through the dealership fence, reinforced with cables and concrete, through a ditch and onto Highway 127 with about $150,000 worth of new cars.

“When they exited the dealership they about struck a southbound vehicle on 127.  When that happened, [that driver] called 911 immediately,” Fletcher said.

The Challengers have cracked bumpers.  Police believe the Mustang has the most damage being the first car through the fence.

A nearby Nashville officer followed the suspects to Interstate 64.  Police from at least seven other jurisdictions took over the pursuit along the way to St. Louis.

The cars hit speeds of 120 miles-an-hour or more, police said.  One suspect got caught when his car ran out of gas in O’Fallon,IL.  Another suspect got away on foot after his car ran out of gas in New Baden.    Both cars are Dodge Challengers.

“At the speeds they were traveling and how they entered the highway, they very seriously could have injured or killed an innocent motorist just traveling the roadway,” Fletcher said.

Police are looking for at least 3 suspects and 2 cars: the Focus and the Mustang.  The Mustang should have substantial front end damage. If you have any information call Nashville, IL, police at 618-327-8274.

Just for clarity.

60-80= sort of fast.

81-100= pretty fast.

101-119=just fast.

120 or more = ultra fast.

140 or more = uber ultra fast.

 

Running out of gas in your getaway car = ultra stupid.

http://amarillo.com/news/local-news/2014-11-24/man-pleads-40-lbs-coke-bust

 

By Jim McBride

jim.mcbride@amarillo.com

An Arizona man pleaded guilty Monday to a federal cocaine trafficking charge after a state trooper found nearly 40 pounds of cocaine in a vehicle he drove through Carson County in September.

William Richard Forbish, 58, of Paradise Valley, Ariz., pleaded guilty Monday in Amarillo’s U.S. District Court to possession with intent to distribute 5 kilograms or more of cocaine.

According to a Drug Enforcement Administration agent’s affidavit, a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper was patrolling Sept. 23 on Interstate 40 and stopped a 2014 Dodge Challenger on a speeding offense. The trooper identified the driver as Forbish and noticed “numerous indicators of possible criminal behavior” when he talked to Forbish. The trooper then ran a background check on Forbish and learned the man had an outstanding Florida warrant for his arrest. Forbish gave the trooper consent to search the Challenger, according to a criminal complaint.

During the search, troopers discovered that the Challenger’s spare tire had been removed and found 18 bundles of cocaine inside the car. Investigators from the DEA and DPS later interviewed Forbish at the DPS office in Panhandle, and Forbish told them he knew there were drugs in the Challenger, and admitted transporting the narcotics to a location in Birmingham, Ala., according to court records.

Forbish faces 10 years to life in federal prison and a fine of up to $10 million when he is sentenced later this year.

http://q13fox.com/2014/12/08/police-brazen-burglars-ram-dodge-ram-through-normandy-park-market-steal-entire-atm/

 

NORMANDY PARK, Washington – Brazen burglars used a pickup to ram into a store early Monday morning and make off with an ATM.

Normandy Park police said it happened just before 2:30a.m. at the Normandy Park Market in the 19800 block of 1st Ave S.

Police said surveillance video showed a new black Dodge Ram pickup drive through the doors at the park.

“We believe there are at least two suspects and possible two suspect vehicles,” wrote a police spokesperson in an email.

The surveillance footage shows a silver/white sedan of some kind parked near the market at about the same time.

Police said they didn’t have a good description of the burglars only that one was likely a man wearing a black hoodie and gloves.

Police are asking anyone in the area to report a new black Dodge Ram pick with damage to the rear and front ends.

Police say a woman who was supposed to drive a friend's truck home from the hospital might have taken it out of state. 

The owner of the black 2014 Dodge Ram was admitted to St. James Healthcare about two weeks ago. At that time, his acquaintance, a 42-year-old woman, was tasked with taking his truck to his home. 

The man told police Monday he returned to his residence and his truck was not there. The woman called to say she was driving to Washington, he told officers. 

The truck, which is worth at least $25,000, has Lewis and Clark County plates, which start with a "5." Police continue an investigation.

http://www.torontosun.com/2015/01/28/california-man-pleads-guilty-to-smuggling-dying-immigrants-in-trunk

 

SAN DIEGO - A U.S. citizen who was arrested entering the country from Mexico with two dying men in the trunk of his car pleaded guilty on Tuesday to felony smuggling charges in a federal California court.

Nicholas George Zakov, 43, admitted that he acted with "extreme disregard" for the lives of the two Mexican citizens he was being paid to smuggle into the United States, court documents showed.

Zakov, who is from North Dakota but moved to the Los Angeles area, has been in federal custody since Aug. 12, following his arrest at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found 28-year-old Tarcisio Casas-Blanco and 20-year-old Jose Quiroz-Casas, both of Guanajato, in the trunk of a 2012 Dodge Challenger. One had stopped breathing and the other was near-death.

Zakov admitted he ignored cries for help from the men in the trunk while he waited to pass customs at the port of entry, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of California.

The statement says they were heard begging to be released from the trunk because it was extremely hot. Cars at the port of entry often wait more than an hour in line, according to government reports.

The men died from hyperthermia and asphyxiation, the statement said.

Zakov was to be paid $3,500 for bringing both men into the U.S., according to court documents. Both Casas-Blanco and Quiroz-Casas had been caught in the United States illegally before and were voluntarily returned to Mexico - a process where they waived hearings that might have led to formal deportation.

Zakov faces a minimum sentence of three years in prison or up to a maximum of life, and a fine of up to $250,000 on two counts of smuggling humans that result in death and two counts of smuggling illegal aliens for financial gain. He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 10.

LAS VEGAS (KSNV mynews3.com) -- The 56-year-old woman killed Friday in a nine-car accident has been identified by the Clark County coroner's office.

Ellen Finnie Gallucci died of multiple blunt force trauma, the coroner ruled. Her dog also died as a result of the collision.

She was the driver of a 2000 Nissan Xterra that was involved in the accident about 3:15 p.m. at Cheyenne Avenue and Jones Boulevard,

A 2012 Dodge Challenger going at a high rate of speed ran a red light, causing the accident that also injured eight others, police said.

Officers had stopped a car at Rainbow Boulevard and Cheyenne. Capt. Peter Boffelli of Metro said when officers started getting out of their car to approach the stopped vehicle, the driver sped away. Boffelli said officers were not in pursuit of the Dodge.

Metro's news release based on the preliminary accident report indicates that just before 3:15 p.m. 32-year-old Kenneth Rankin of Las Vegas was driving the Challenger that was traveling eastbound on Cheyenne Avenue approaching the intersection with Jones Boulevard. The car ran the red light and struck the front of a 1993 Crown Victoria traveling southbound through the intersection on a green light.

After the Dodge struck the Nissan, both vehicles struck a 2000 Toyota Rav4 that was also northbound on Jones. The force of the impact from the Dodge caused the Nissan and Toyota to roll over.

The remaining five vehicles were stopped for the read light facing west on Cheyenne. The vehicles were damaged by the Dodge, Nissan and Toyota.

Rankin and his passenger, 48-year-old James Bennett suffered serious injuries and were taken to the hospital.

Rankin was booked in absentia and is in police custody at an area hospital. Police did not release the names of any of the other people involved in the accident.

The death was the 11th traffic-related fatality in Metro's jurisdiction this year.

A driver going the wrong way died in a crash near West Palm Beach Tuesday, deputies said.

At 1:43 p.m., another driver, Rui Rodrigues, 57, of Loxahatchee, was driving a 2001 Toyota pickup truck north on Jog Road when he noticed the Challenger coming over the bridge heading toward him, according to the report.

Rodrigues tried to turn left but the left front of his Toyota hit the left front of the Challenger, causing the Challenger to spin, deputies said.

The Challenger hit the curb of the median, hit a tree on the passenger side before hitting a second tree in the median, head-on.

Jacques was pronounced dead at the scene while Rodrigues was uninjured in the crash. Neither driver was wearing a seat belt, according to the report.

http://www.10news.com/news/dodge-challenger-crashes-into-gas-station-pump

 

SAN DIEGO - A driver ran off after smashing a Dodge Challenger into a gas pump in Encanto Thursday morning, but was later caught.

San Diego police report that the crash occurred at 2 a.m. at a USA Gas station at 63rd Street and Imperial Avenue. A driver lost control of his car and hit a traffic signal pole. He then crashed through the gas station sign and slammed into a gas pump. The protective concrete barrier around the pump prevented it from sheering off, police said.

The attendant told 10News the man jumped out of the car and ran away, leaving his shoes behind.

"I didn't know what to do,” clerk Anthony Payne said. “I just went to see if the guy was OK. He said he was alright, but then he just took off. I guess he was scared."

The suspect was caught about an hour later at his nearby mobile home, located in a trailer park off 63rd. San Diego police were able to find him because of the registration paperwork he had left in the car.

The man, who was not identified, faces hit-and-run charges. He was not hurt.

Ok, so what have we learned today? You can transport 2 full grown men in the trunk of a Challenger, lets see the Mustang and Camaro do that.

 

You can get into a collision with a Toyota, where the Toyota driver dies, and the Challenger driver walks away.

 

Finally that is a gorgeous blue under the lights on that car above!

http://www.9news.com/story/news/crime/2015/03/31/aurora-police-investigating-possible-police-impersonator/70739040/

 

AURORA - The Aurora Police Department has launched an investigation after a woman driving on Interstate 225 says she was pulled over by a man in an unmarked vehicle who demanded her driver's license, searched her car, and took her wallet and an unspecified electronic device. APD says it happened at around 2:25 p.m. Sunday.

 

Police say the victim was driving southbound on Interstate 225 from I-70 when a black unmarked Dodge Challenger pulled up behind her and turned on flashing lights. Thinking she was being stopped by police, the victim said she pulled over. The man driving the Dodge Challenger then approached her window and "demanded her driver's license without providing a reason to stop." After going back to his car for roughly 10 minutes, police say the suspect came back and told the victim she needed to turn off her car and hand over her keys. The suspect then went through the vehicle and took the victim's wallet and an unspecified electronic device before driving away, according to the Aurora Police Department. The victim said there was also another person sitting on the passenger side of the Dodge Challenger.

 

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man between 25 and 30 years old, 5'7'' tall and clean-shaven with short dark brown hair and hazel eyes. He was wearing a dark-colored uniform with no insignia, shoulder patch, badge, or name plate and full-fingered gloves. The suspect was also wearing a holstered handgun on his belt along with a pair of handcuffs. The second suspect was described as a younger man wearing a similar uniform. Unmarked police vehicles are used by the Aurora Police and other law enforcement throughout Colorado. You can call 911 if you are being pulled over by an unmarked car to determine whether or not an actual law enforcement officer has stopped you. All Aurora Police are required to carry their badge and identification card while on-duty. Anyone who witnessed this incident or has any information about this case is asked to contact Aurora Police at 303-739-1838.
