Man arrested three times in one day under CA’s coronavirus-based zero-bail policy

first_imgGlendora Police DepartmentBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(GLENDORA, Calif.) — Officers in Los Angeles County arrested and released a suspect three times in one day after he was repeatedly let go based on the zero-bail policy that California has put into effect due to the coronavirus pandemic, police said.The policy is intended to keep the jail population lower due to COVID-19 concerns, officials say. On Wednesday, officers responded to a call of a man attempting to break into a vehicle in the city of Glendora, in the San Gabriel Valley. According to the police, Dijon Landrum, 24, was allegedly attempting to drive away in the stolen vehicle.Landrum was arrested, issued a citation and released, officers said.About an hour after Landrum was released, the department said it received a call about a man allegedly taking items from residences’ front yards. The responding officers allegedly found Landrum at the scene in possession of stolen items.The officers issued Landrum a citation and recovered the property.Later that night, a car was reported stolen out of a parking lot. Glendora officers tracked the car on the freeway in nearby La Puente, and the Los Angeles County Sheriffs and California Highway Patrol pursued the vehicle.Landrum was arrested in Pasadena for alleged possession of a stolen vehicle and for evading officers. He was issued a citation and released for the third time that day, police said.In early April, California’s Judicial Council temporarily set bail at zero for most misdemeanors and lower-level felonies to reduce jail populations and limit the spread of COVID-19 during the coronavirus pandemic. Glendora Police Department officials said they were acting in accordance with the policy. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Fla. town to impose traffic accident fee

first_imgWho pays for Davie’s end of the deal? The town’s taxpayers, Starkey said. “There are so many municipalities in South Florida,” Truex said. “So if we start charging Pembroke Pines residents, do they start charging us when we go into their city limits?” “It’s a last-ditch effort to raise money in case the state comes down on us like a sledgehammer,” said Vice Mayor Bryan Caletka, an opponent. “It doesn’t really matter to me if it’s a Davie resident or an alien resident. It seems like you’re kicking a person while they’re down. They just had an accident and you’re going to charge them for having our police and fire come out to help them.” “It’s not a Florida-only phenomenon,” said Neal, noting that other municipalities in the nation have imposed or considered similar fees. Adam Shores, an Allstate Insurance Co. spokesman based in St. Petersburg, called the practice unfair, comparing the fees to a hidden tax. Councilwoman Susan Starkey said she favors the plan as a way to recover the cost of all the accidents the town must respond to. The fee would apply only to the driver cited in the accident. If several drivers were cited, they would split the bill. Uninsured motorists and drivers who successfully fought the citations in court would not be charged. Nonresidents who refused to pay the fee would risk damaging their credit reports, a town consultant said. Because Davie is bordered by several major highways, including Interstate 595 and I-75, the Florida Turnpike and State Road 84, its fire and police departments are often the first responders to accidents on those roads, Starkey said. A mutual aid agreement with neighboring cities such as Cooper City and Sunrise requires the town’s public safety departments to respond to crashes outside its limits, and the town receives help when needed from the neighbors. Interim Town Attorney James Cherof told council members he would review the ordinance to ensure it does not attract court challenges. “For it to be legal, it would have to apply equally to everyone,” said Chris Neal, a spokesman for State Farm Insurance Co. in Winter Haven. “In the state of Florida, you can’t discriminate based on the type of insurance you have or where you live.” On Wednesday, Mayor Tom Truex said although he voted for the proposal, he still wasn’t convinced it’s best for the town. Insurance companies aren’t keen on the idea. But cities such as Winter Park and Toledo, Ohio, have embraced the practice of charging user fees after accidents. Tampa and major cities such as Boston and Detroit are researching the idea, Moore said.center_img A proposal tentatively approved by Town Council members last week would let the town bill insurance companies of residents and nonresidents. Should a resident’s insurance company refuse to pay the claim, the town would write off the charge. But nonresidents would get a bill. Davie Police Chief John George referred questions about the fee proposal to Fire Chief Donald DiPetrillo. The fire chief could not be reached for comment despite three phone messages. The average fee, which does not include ambulance transport fees, would start at $600 for fire service and $240 for police, with increases based on time and equipment used, said Regina Moore, president of Cost Recovery Corp., the Ohio-based firm hired to help implement the plan. She estimated that if both police and fire-rescue responded, the average bill would come to $840. The fees would also apply when Davie responded to accidents outside town limits. DAVIE, Fla. Passing through? Better drive carefully. The measure would bring in an estimated $750,000 a year to town coffers. It was approved 3-1, with Caletka voting no; Councilman Michael Crowley did not vote. A second vote is expected later this month. Local governments already budget for public safety using taxpayers’ money, Shores said. “When you have municipalities that want to pass the costs of these services onto insurers, those costs are going to get passed onto consumers. So you have people paying twice for the same service.” Radnor Township, near Philadelphia, imposed such a fee in 2006, then ended the program in February after months of bad publicity. “Our residents won’t be the ones who scream about this,” she added. “They feel they are unfairly funding services for people who don’t live in the town.” Davie joins a number of cities in Florida and around the country that have embraced the practice or are considering similar fees. In one instance, a Pennsylvania township imposed the fee, then dropped it because of negative publicity. Davie may soon impose fees on motorists cited in traffic accidents on state highways and county roads. Proponents say the fee would help recoup the cost of the town’s police and fire services at a time municipalities are bracing for state-imposed tax cuts.last_img read more

Electric Scooter Injuries Surge

first_imgElectric scooter injuries have surged along with their popularity in the United States, nearly tripling over four years, researchers said in a study published Wednesday. “Improved rider safety measures and regulation” are clearly needed, the researchers said. Media reports have linked the stand-up electric scooters with more than a dozen U.S. deaths within the past few years. Nearly 40,000 broken bones, head injuries, cuts and bruises resulting from scooter accidents were treated in U.S. emergency rooms from 2014 through 2018, the research showed. The scooter injury rate among the general U.S. population climbed from 6 per 100,000 to 19 per 100,000. Most occurred in riders aged 18 to 34, and most injured riders weren’t hospitalized. ___ FILE – In this May 28, 2019, file photo, a man on a scooter passes a parked scooter along the Mission Beach boardwalk in San Diego.

(AP Photo/Gregory Bull, File) For the study published in JAMA Surgery, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, analyzed U.S. government data on nonfatal injuries treated in emergency rooms. “Scooters promote active commuting,” could help spur wider public transit use and could lead to less traffic congestion, said lead author Dr. Benjamin Breyer. “We hope to raise awareness that riders should wear helmets and ride safely.” The Associated Press Health and Science Department receives support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.

The trend follows the emergence of rental companies in cities around the world that let customers rent scooters through smartphone apps and drop them off anywhere in the same city.
