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.

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.

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.
