DUI checkpoint refusal to search, arrest for DUI 0% BAC

Follow-up video to previously posted audio, synchronizing it with this new video. Raw dash cam video from Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Chava Rothschild’s vehicle at the December 18, 2010 roadblock in Sparks, Nevada. The trooper is called over to a block a seized driver who declined consent to a warrantless search of his vehicle. The driver was previously threatened, falsely imprisoned, and maliciously prosecuted for DUI at the most recent Sparks police roadblock. Sparks police officer Eric Atkins is at the driver’s side window. Carson City sheriff deputy Brett Bindley is next to him, with his hand on his Glock pistol. After officers repeatedly threatened to break the vehicle’s window, the driver unlocked the doors and the officers opened the doors. Atkins noticed the spare magazine on the driver’s hip and attacked the driver and other officers joined the assault. The driver’s pistol was snatched from his holster while he was being assaulted. The driver was bound and taken to another location, where he declined to participate in the officers’ malicious prosecution for DUI. Sparks PD officer Rich Gamwell told him, “You are under arrest for DUI and for possession of a firearm while intoxicated.” Officers wrote reports stating the driver reached for his holstered pistol. Little did they know the driver had video cameras inside his vehicle. Gamwell, the arresting officer who collected the officers’ narrative reports, searched the vehicle twice and discovered the most obvious …

Year in Eater : Friends of Eater Recall Their Single Best Meals of 2011

Year in Eater : Friends of Eater Recall Their Single Best Meals of 2011

As is the tradition at Eater, our closeout of the year is a survey of friends, industry types, bloggers, and readers. We’ve already covered Top Newcomers , Top Standbys , Best Dining Neighborhood , 2011 described in one word , and Biggest Dining Surprises . Now, Best Meals. Readers, please add your thoughts to the comments. [Scarpetta, Beverly Hills. Elizabeth Daniels ] Q: What was your single best meal of 2011? Lonny Pugh, LA editor, Urban Daddy : Scarpetta . It involved the spaghetti—one of those simple dishes that can’t possibly be as good as everybody says it is. But then it is. And then later you think it can’t possibly be as good as you remember. So you go back and have it again. And it still is. Stephane Bombet, owner, Picca: Gary Menes pop up dinner at Le Comptoir at Tiara Cafe. My favorite dish was his home made foie gras au torchon with balsamic vinegar and callery pears. Jonathan Gold, LA Weekly : A lovely three-hour lunch at Providence – Michael Cimarusti has quietly become the best chef in Los Angeles. Hadley Tomicki, LA editor, Grub Street : I’m still surprised I didn’t wake up at some point when Cimarusti, Ludo, Urasawa, and Zarate came together at Providence, but I’d have to say the kaiseki dinner I had at N/Naka , as I’ve rarely had such an emotional reaction to food. One side of the table was laughing in wonder, the other crying in joy. Lesley Barger Suter , dine editor, LAmag : I keep giving it love, but I’m going to have to say my first meal at Sotto : Bread with lardo, perfect pork meatballs, and that pizza, plus cannolis…all washed down with some amaro. Wolfgang Puck: I would say that my single best meal was at the Fat Duck outside of London if I exclude the meal that Tetsu made for me at Spago. Zach Brooks, Midtown Lunch : Do I have to choose between ink. and Son of a Gun … because I really don’t want to. Jeff Miller, LA editor, Thrillist : I was lucky enough to spend some major time in Las Vegas and got to eat at Bartolotta . Not only was it the best meal I ate all year, but that’s one of my favorite meals I’ve ever had. Every single bite was perfect. Yassmin Sarmadi, restaurant owner, Church & State: Chef’s Tasting Menu at Patina – I have always enjoyed Patina, but had not been for some time. Hands down this was one of my best dining experiences in 2011! George Abou-Daoud, restaurateur, Bowery Street Enterprises : Chicharron en Verde followed by Espinoza de Cerdo en Guajillo in Mexico City—-amazing. Lindsay William-Ross, LAist : This is probably the hardest for me to answer, because I can’t just say one thing! I did get to sit down to an amazing meal in the private dining room of Osteria Mozza for a dinner honoring Ruth Reichl where the guests were some amazing local chefs and food writers, which was made only more surreal by the fact that I was high on cold medicine. But a lot of my greatest dining pleasures came while traveling, like the half-dozen fresh oysters I had at Seattle’s Pike Place Market, or the epic meals at Julian Serrano and Sage at the Aria in Vegas with some of my food writing girlfriends. The donuts from The Doughnut Plant in NYC my boyfriend and I ate while walking around the Lower East Side one very cold Sunday morning in March after we flew in on a red eye. A White Spot burger in Vancouver. Anytime I got to share a table with a loved one, or experience something while I traveled, well, that’s my best meal! Daniela Galarza, associate editor, Eater LA: In LA – Picca . Outside of LA – Pok Pok. Maggie Nemser, founder, Blackboard Eats : At Joe’s in Venice with Walter Manzke as the guest chef serving an unforgettable Millbrook Venison with Sauce Poivrade. Josh Lurie, Food GPS : That’s a tough call. My meaty meal at Snow’s BBQ, about an hour outside of Austin, was pretty spectacular. Sooke Harbour House, situated right on the water in a spectacular Vancouver Island setting, was stunning for multiple reasons, including the hyper-local food. Still, since this is Eater LA, let’s go with something that’s actually in Los Angeles. One of my most recent blowout meals in L.A. was at Sushi Gen , where we let a friend take the lead, and he proceeded to order an onslaught of pristine seafood, including toro, uni, mirugai (giant clam) and amaebi (sweet shrimp). Seriously, how could that not taste good? And of course the people were fun, so that always helps. Kat Odell, editor, Eater LA: I would probably have to go with the epic Krug dinner I had earlier this year at Urasawa . Can’t compete with Hiro’s sushi and 15 bottles of vintage Krug divided between 10 diners… also had a surprisingly fun/flavorful dinner at Miss Lily’s recently in NYC. · Year in Eater 2011 [~ELA~] Go here to read the rest: Year in Eater : Friends of Eater Recall Their Single Best Meals of 2011

Nightlife: 1OAK Gets Ready to Party at the Mirage on NYE

Nightlife: 1OAK Gets Ready to Party at the Mirage on NYE

As expected , New York’s 1OAK unveils a Vegas version of itself at the Mirage Hotel this weekend. One of the most sought after (read: sold out) tickets in town for New Year’s, this 1OAK is not expected to be another blockbuster Vegas club. Instead, owners Scott Sartiano and Richie Akiva told the Wall Street Journal that this location is “going to be more intimate, more exclusive. It’s 16,000 square feet, and a 1,600-person occupancy.” Most clubs in Vegas have at least a 5,000-person occupancy; New York’s 1OAK has an occupancy of 300. When asked about expansion, the partners discuss their strategy and emphasis on building a consistent experience, so that New Yorkers who frequent 1OAK in New York will also want to visit the Vegas location. Says Akiva, “We’re not just in night life—we’re in the hospitality business.” · 1OAK Owners Bring the 1OAK Experience To Las Vegas [~ENY~] · Inside Las Vegas’ 1Oak, On Target To Launch NYE [~ELA~] · 1Oak in Vegas Confirmed [~ELA~] Read more here: Nightlife: 1OAK Gets Ready to Party at the Mirage on NYE
