An alleged suspect on the corner of Melrose/Vermont was arrested on a DUI charge, as well as injuring a police officer, according to Officer Mireles of the LAPD North/East division.

The alleged suspect, who was not identified during a briefing with Officer Mireles, was witnessed by two students from Los Angeles City College, Ixchel Hernandez and Danya Garcia, who both saw the alleged suspect get “pulled out of the car by force.” 

According to Officer Mireles, the alleged suspect was completely uncooperative. The alleged suspect was so disorderly, that officers had to break the driver-side window and tasered the alleged suspect to the ground, after injuring one officer with his vehicle. The Collegian was informed that the officer was pinned between 2 cars. Fortunately, the officer reportedly walked away with minor injuries. 

The vehicle that the alleged suspect used to impair the officer was a grey VW (Volkswagen) with license plate number, 7TUK955. The car was not reported stolen. However, all tires were deflated after the officer-involved injury occurred. It’s inconclusive whether or not LAPD deflated the tires. There were no weapons involved, minus the vehicle. 

The alleged suspect’s car was storage for a lot of questionable items such as: prescription bottles, an empty grape Swisher wrapper, presumably used as a marijuana component on the passenger’s seat, and a brown balled up blanket. 

The alleged suspect was wearing mocha brown pants, a grey sweater, a grey shirt underneath the sweater, as well as grey, white, and black Nike’s.

He appeared to be injured upon apprehension; however, he was strapped onto a gurney and placed into an ambulance with a squad car following behind.



Petty Traffic Ticket 

By Trissean McDonald

I totally hate petty traffic tickets and the court experiences behind them. And, I’m for certain that it’s the same for anyone else.

Time is wasted, expletives are racing in your head, you just want to spill them out. However, you’re consciously aware that if you were to, you’re being placed in the back seat of the black and white.

 It has you wondering, “what grass of shit did you step in this morning, officer?” Especially when it’s a lite infraction such as, riding a bike across a crosswalk while the hand is blinking, yet the light is still green. Then, being signaled to continue across the crosswalk only to be escorted to the right and issued a citation.

It’s understandable if the light was yellow or red. But green? Mm…Yeah, somebody must have put some sour cream in Officer Grimmer’s coffee.

There’s nothing wrong with traffic tickets, if there’s a legitimate reason for them. For example, a car parked in the red, or a person walking across a crosswalk while the hand is red; driving intoxicated, parking in the handicap section without a permit, speeding, these are legitimate reasons for traffic tickets.

However, traffic tickets can be gratuitous in the sense of riding a bicycle, (something faster than human legs), past a crosswalk while the hand is red and the light green.

Court appearances. More wasted time and money. If only I had boobs, I would have been able to talk my way out of this one.

The gag is, I’ve rode my bike past many officers while the traffic light was at green and the hand at red. However, I’ve never been harassed. It was petty, and he’s a jerk. But hey, Karma’s a bitch, right? And it’s always at work.

“Reporters from The Times, CNN and Politico were not allowed to enter the West Wing office of the press secretary, Sean M. Spicer, for the scheduled briefing. Aides to Mr. Spicer allowed in reporters from only a handpicked group of news organizations that, the White House said, had been previously confirmed to attend.”

When You Give Somebody Too Much Authority

By Trissean McDonald

Have you ever experienced an arbitrary individual that exemplifies the characteristics of not only an “asshole,” but also as an individual that disregards the opinions of others? Sure, you have.

Isn’t it annoying? Although a rhetorical question, “hell yeah.”
These individuals are usually arbitrary because of personal issues. Nevertheless, these personal issues shouldn’t give these individuals any specific leeway to make others feel miserable.   

The worst places to encounter these individuals are at work, school, and perhaps even a religious establishment. 
They display a sense of superiority even to their own superiors, causing their superiors to feel rather inferior and disrespected.

 Seriously, what gives these people the right to demise their own power of authority to only seek after more with which they cannot handle? Hmm… That’s salty as hell, right?

The time to thwart these individuals from your presence begins today. Other than that, they’ll continuously “grind your gears.” You like what I did with that?

 Seriously, although there will always be that (fill in the blank), let yourself rise above it all. Don’t allow yourself to succumb to their frivolities.
