AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for February 6, 2014

Twenty-six 18-24 year-olds were caught in yesterday’s methamphetamine crime sweep in Eastern San Diego County. Authorities call the sweep called Operation Tip the Scale and over 100 officers were involved. Out of the 26 people arrested, 10 are in custody and accused of felonies, 16 for misdemeanors, and 2 were taken to drug treatment.

California Highway Patrol and Chula Vista Fire Department respond to an incident at which a CHP officer placed a firefighter in handcuffs. Firefighters and CHP responded to an accident last Tuesday and reportedly the CHP officer asked firefighters to move their truck. Reportedly the fireman placed in cuffs told the officer that they needed to leave the truck parked on the freeway to shield an ambulance. And that’s when the Officer put the veteran firefighter in cuffs and then in the back of his cruiser. Yesterday the two agencies met and released a joint statement saying …

“This was an isolated incident and not representative of the manner in which our agencies normally work together toward our common goal.”

A woman on the run from the law for 37-years is in San Diego’s downtown courthouse this morning at 8:30. 60-year-old Judy Lynn Hayman escaped from a Michigan prison and has been living in San Diego since.
