KU basketball player Josh Jackson charged in car vandalism case; Self says he won't bench 'great ambassador' for KU

What felony do you think he committed? Or should they just make one up?

KU basketball player Graham arrested on municipal court charge after team's Big 12 conference win

I've seen it happen before, the jail time isn't for the expired tags, it's for blowing off the notice to appear for what they see as ignoring the ticket. I've had acquaintances taken to jail because they forgot about a ticket then got pulled over for something else.

I'm betting he was in a car that got pulled over and they ran everyone's IDs. In this case he would have had a bench warrant it and the chip would have had little choice.

Fans gather, wait overnight, for Late Night in the Phog

It was pretty surreal, we were inside but there were thousands of empty seats. In just our section in the corner there was easily 200-300 empty seats within 50 feet of us. The count by the fire marshal was WAY off...

It has always been for anyone, but in the original days it wasn't even half full because it was later.

The reason given was the walking path that replaced the railroad tracks.

Police looking for driver of stolen truck who led officers on chase

This isn't Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit folks, they can't just run them into other cars or buildings. They can chase them until they trap them if they're lucky. Obviously the criminals were willing to do anything to get away, including driving on sidewalks, through parks, and down train tracks. The vehicles weren't even their's, so it's not like they cared about damage to them.

I'm not sure what magical properties you think the cops have to stop them. Maybe they should be chyasing them down the road, guns blazing, civilians be damned!
