Mario Gonzalez’s death in police custody spurs action
After listening to 38 speakers at a special meeting last Saturday and reading 50 pages of correspondence in the matter, the City Council approved all seven action items on the meeting agenda.
At 11:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 17, an alleged drunk driver was attempting to turn from Santa Clara Avenue onto High Street. He took the turn too widely and crashed into the fence that borders Lincoln Park. He fled from the vehicle, but witnesses pursued him through the park.
