Ty Lawson Arrested: DUI Suspicion

Early Friday morning, the Denver Police confirmed that Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was arrested on suspicion of DUI. According to the probable cause document, Lawson was traveling at a speed of 60mph in a zone where the posted speed limit is 35mph.

At 1:19am, the Denver police made the arrest with Lawson telling police he had consumed alcohol prior to getting behind the wheel. Police said that Lawson’s breath had a strong odor of alcohol; he had bloodshot eyes, and slurred speech.

When police conducted a field sobriety test, Lawson performed unsatisfactorily. After being arrested, he refused a chemical test. Per his request, the Denver Nuggets point guard was later jailed without valid identification.  On Friday, the Nuggets issued a statement stating that they were aware of Lawson’s situation but due to team policy and respect for the legal process, had no further comments at the moment.

DUI Charges for Driver that Rear-Ended JLo

Back in September, Jennifer Lopez and her friend Leah Remini were involved in a hit-and-run accident on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California while riding around in Lopez’s Rolls Royce. John Reitz, the driver at fault, fled the scene after rear-ending them but was eventually found a short distance away by deputies. According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, Reitz was driving with a blood alcohol content of .15, nearly twice the legal limit. Now, Reitz is being charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI for the September incident. If convicted, Reitz is facing 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. At the time of the incident, two children were also in the vehicle but no injuries were reported for anyone.

Hitting someone and fleeing the scene of an accident is illegal in every state. If the victim is injured or killed, the hit-and-run can become a felony offense. In California, even if no injuries occurred, a hit-and-run is still a misdemeanor offense as long as property was damaged. If Reitz ends up agreeing to a plea bargain, it is likely that the prosecutor will drop one of the DUI charges in exchange for a guilty plea of the remaining charge.

Tricks to Defrost your Windshield

Winter season is here again, and for many people, it’s also the season to wake up a few minutes earlier to crank up the heat and get the frost off their car windows. This is a tedious, time consuming task that many people wish they didn’t have to do. Unfortunately, not everyone has a working heater in their car. There are other methods of increasing your windshield visibility during this time of year that doesn’t require a heater. For instance, you can use your windshield wipers to scrape away a thin layer of frost and a rag to wipe up the interior moisture and water droplets. Using a rag to wipe up interior moisture may also prevent your dash from warping. Another way to eliminate thin frost buildup on the interior of your windshield is to use a chamois sponge. These sponges are made from an absorbent fabric and can also be used to clean the frost from your refrigerator or freezer.

Also available to aid in clearing frost from your windshield are portable vehicle defrosters. For less than $50, this accessory plugs into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter and can be placed by any window. It will blow warm, dry air and will help clear up your windshield. If you’re looking for a more cost effective alternative, there are items in your home that can be used to help. Fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and add a few drops of dish soap and spray it directly onto your icy windshield. The ice will be relatively melted after a few minutes, allowing you to brush it aside.

Another preventive measure is to use products that are deicers and ice preventers, which can easily be found in any auto store. These products should be sprayed on the windshield every night in order to have a frost-free morning. We want to make sure you’ve got the best advice when it comes to defrosting your windshield the next time you need to save time and effort. Hopefully you will find these tips useful and handy in the future.

Cam Newton Involved in Car Accident

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was involved in a two-vehicle crash in close proximity to the team’s stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Newton was driving the posted speed of 35mph when the driver of another vehicle pulled out in front of him. Since Newton was not at fault in the incident, he will face no charges. The accident left Newton with two fractures in his lower back and he was held overnight at Carolina’s Medical Center for observation and testing.

Due to his injuries, Newton may be unable to play Sunday. If it’s ruled that he cannot play, Derek Anderson is expected to take his place as the team’s starting quarterback. The team was unsure if Newton would remain in Charlotte for his recovery or head to his hometown Atlanta, Georgia with them. Coincidentally, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered the same injury earlier in the season. It was ruled that Romo had to miss one game to recuperate.

Newton was recently named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 226 yards, running 83 and four touchdowns in a win against the Saints on Sunday. On Wednesday, Newton was discharged from the hospital and said to be sore but in good spirits.
