AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for May 30, 2014

A sketch of a man suspected of trying to sexually assault an Escondido gym employee is making the rounds. Escondido police say the man hid inside the gym past closing then jumped out and attacked the female gym employee closing up for the night. The woman was able to fight off her attacker. Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic man, 35 – 45 years old, five foot five inches tall, shaved head, tattoo across his left ring finger and a teardrop tattoo on his left eye. He was wearing a white tank top, black shorts, black high top tennis shoes and white knee high socks. Anyone with any info is asked to contact Escondido police by calling 760-743-8477 or online at Police.Escondido.org.

San Diego County Jails will no longer hold suspected undocumented immigrants past there release dates unless Immigration and Customs Enforcement has a warrant for the suspects arrest. Before it was practice to hold county jail inmates after their release date if they were suspected of being undocumented, giving I.C.E. time to detain them. Now San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore says unless his department is presented with an arrest warrant he is going to release them. Gore did not give an explanation for the new policy however the American Civil Liberties Union says they think it has to do with a recent federal court decision. The courts said holding someone in local jails without a warrant in a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

The whale carcass that washed ashore near the Mexican border is being cut apart and disposed of this weekend. The 50-foot long dead fin whale has been lying on the beach near Border Field State Park for about a week now. Researchers from the National Marine Fisheries Service are taking samples for the lab then the rest will be hauled to a landfill.

Today is Bike to Work Day. Originally it was supposed to two weeks ago but was postponed because of more than a dozen wild fires that broke out. San Diego Association of Governments organizes the event. SANDAG expects 8,000 riders and they have over 100 pit stops.

All the fun around San Diego’s world famous Rock N Roll Marathon kicks off this morning at 10:45 at the San Diego Convention Center. Boston Marathon winner and San Diegan Meb Keflezighi is leading the official start for the events.

Today the health and fitness expo opens. The marathon is this Sunday and starts at Sixth Avenue and Quince Street near Balboa Park and the finish line is at 13th and K streets near PETCO Park in Downtown.

60-years of Bring Your Own Booze is over for the San Diego traditional summertime Over The Line Tournament along with some other rule changes. The Old Mission Beach Athletic Club or OMBAC says on its web site that the new rules are being forced upon them by the city.

Notable changes are

1: No more BYOB

2: Alcohol will be sold inside the tournament playing area.

3: The tournament playing area will be a fenced and a controlled 21 years old and up area only.

OMBAC says the rule changes are because the voters banned drinking on the beaches without special permits and a group that was denied a permit last year sued the city crying foul.

And finally this afternoon at 1:00 environmentalists are protesting at Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins office at 1350 Front Street. They are upset that Atkins supports Assembly Bill 2145. According to the group the bill will make it imposable for communities to pursue clean energy.
