Seattle Seahawks former tight end Stevens serves a Month in Jail for DUI

Stevens was stopped last January in Manhattan Beach, California, after he was found driving the U.S. women’s soccer team van (his wife is goalie Hope Solo) with the lights off. After his recent sentencing, Stevens began serving his time. 35-year-old Stevens had pleaded no contest to DUI charges. His blood alcohol content was over twice the legal limit. Solo had been riding in the front seat of the van and allegedly been combative with officers after they were pulled over. This is not the first DUI conviction for Stevens. He served a previous month in jail in 2007 after being pulled over there. He will now be required to enter a two-year alcohol program and be placed on probation for four years.

Nevada Taxicab Authority says “NO” to Discuss Uber

Hours after calling a meeting to consider a defined stance on the regulation of Uber here in Las Vegas, the Nevada Taxicab Authority canceled the meeting. Ileana Drobkin is chair of the board that regulates Clark County’s 16 taxi companies. Remember: The state Attorney General’s Office, representing the Nevada Transportation Authority, took Uber to court after last November (when Uber wanted to begin a branch here in Las Vegas). NTA claimed Uber operations unlicensed and unsafe, and Washoe County Judge Scott Freeman issued a temporary injunction that prevented Uber from opening anywhere in Nevada. So what’s the future for Uber in Nevada? Why does nearly every major city in America have access to Uber but the place that arguably could benefit the most from it is unable to take advantage of its services? Could it have to do with the amount of power taxi companies have in this city? Or is is strict regulations in the industry? To Note: Nevada’s taxi and limousine regulations are among the strictest in the nation, and Last year alone, over $390 million in fares were spent on Las Vegas taxi rides. Also, in Las Vegas, the taxi industry is regulated at the state level by a board of appointed officials insulated from direct lobbying. “There’s nothing prohibiting them from operating here. They simply need to go to the taxi authority and make an application like every other provider in the industry has done,” Jonathan Schwartz, director at Yellow Checker Star, said about ridesharing companies such as San Fran based Uber. “If they just started operating, it would be...
Teenager Seriously Injured in Las Vegas DUI Crash

Teenager Seriously Injured in Las Vegas DUI Crash

Last Friday, a DUI crash in Las Vegas left a teenager seriously injured. The teenager is 18 year old Tyler Farmer. The woman suspected of a DUI was 46 year old Cynthia Lorenz, who was booked at Clark County Detention Center where she faces the DUI charges. Lorenz was reported to be driving a 2003 Toyota Avalon at approximately 7:45 p.m. when she crossed over the double yellow lines and struck the vehicle in which Tyler Farmer was passenger. The 17 year old driver of the car (who will remain unnamed) swerved to try to avoid the crash, but the car was unfortunately hit on the passenger’s side, where Farmer was sitting.

Patrol Car Hits Man then Fines Him for Jaywalking

Patrol Car Hits Man then Fines Him for Jaywalking

It didn’t happen here in Vegas, yet, but a few states up & over in Washington, a police officer hit two people with his car who were crossing the street illegally (the “do not walk” sign was on). The officer will face no punishment AND the injured pair were each fined $112 and found at fault. The pair had been crossing the street in rainy weather at about 1 a.m. and did not see any cars approaching, according to Washington State Patrol spokesman Mark Francis. The man struck landed on the hood of the police car before rolling off. His leg and neck were injured. The woman was also struck and was bleeding from the head. The emergency lights were not activated on the police car during the incident. “Both of us were wrong. He should have seen us, and we shouldn’t have jaywalked,” Lauren Keenan, the injured woman, reported to The Bellingham Herald newspaper. “But we had to suffer pain, we had to suffer injuries, and we had to suffer loss of work.” Perhaps it is understandable that the officer did not receive punishment for this incident… but to fine & ticket the injured pair seems a bit much, doesn’t it?
