Torrance Police Department conducted a DUI – License checkpoint on Pacific Coast Highway on June 22, 2012. A minivan came through driven by a female with a male passenger. The police forced the driver and the passenger to show ID and then forced the passenger to perform a field sobriety test. Are these checkpoints really about stopping drunk drivers and if so how come Torrance PD is targeting passengers ? After watching the FST being conducted the male passenger appears to have passed it perfectly and didnt appear inpaired. Police kept him anyway.

Dallas,Texas-A police chase that started in Seagoville, weaved into downtown Dallas, then Mesquite, and back into downtown Dallas has ended. Around Noon Dallas police began pursuing a burgundy colored Ford Expedition SUV. The case is believed to be a kidnapping involving a woman and a man — who is the father of her child. The man was believed to have a gun. Sources told CBS 11 News the driver has a pending arrest warrant for aggravated assault, apparently after last week shooting at the female that was inside the vehicle with him during the chase. CBS 11 News reporter JD Miles learned the driver/suspect had a cell phone and was in contact with Mesquite police while driving. The man reportedly told officers that he wanted to pull over but was afraid to stop. At about 1:00 pm the driver pulled over near the intersection of Griffin Street and Pacific Avenue. The driver/suspect got out of the SUV, with his hands up, and laid down on the ground. Officers immediately took him into custody and converged on the vehicle, removing a female from the passenger side.
