Mojave High parent to protest incident

first_imgShe said about 20 others also witnessed the 11 a.m. incident. “I was shocked,” she said. “By the time I saw him, he was screaming and hollering for help.” Stoudemire said sheriff’s deputies deleted photos she had taken using her cell phone. But sheriff’s Sgt. Bob Daniels said Stoudemire’s accounts of the events are “significantly exaggerated” and inaccurate. He said the boy was being arrested for public intoxication and that a deputy used pepper spray when the boy became combative. MOJAVE – A Mojave High parent is organizing a protest over what she says was police misconduct in an incident that occurred on campus last month. Dedra Stoudemire said she was arrested after photographing a boy in handcuffs being pepper-sprayed by sheriff’s deputies Feb. 28. Stoudemire said she was charged with resisting arrest and trespassing. Stoudemire said she is a singer and was on campus at the time because she was invited to perform in a presentation honoring Black History Month. Daniels said Stoudemire was not authorized to be on the portion of the campus where the boy was being arrested and that Stoudemire became combative when a deputy asked her to leave. Daniels also said Stoudemire’s cell-phone photos were not deleted. “Her phone wasn’t even taken from her,” he said. Stoudemire said her protest is scheduled for 7 a.m. March 16 at Mojave High.

UCLA line taking a hands down approach

first_img Too often Washington’s defensive linemen were quick to get their hands up to clog passing lanes, they said. So the 20th-ranked Bruins worked on remedying that as they prepared for today’s meeting with No. 10 California at the Rose Bowl. “You have to stay firm on the line of scrimmage,” McCloskey said. “On the three-step drops, you can’t give (the defense) any penetration. You have to really focus on getting your hands on them, pushing them out. If you do that, they’re not going to want to put their hands up.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 McCloskey said blocking the Bears lower would keep the defenders from getting their hands high when Olson passed. Washington batted down at least six passes at the line of scrimmage. Cable added he may have given too much information for the youngsters sophomore guards Shannon Tevaga and Chris Joseph and sophomore tackle Brian Abraham to digest. “We’re not getting (the defenders’) hands down … that’s the guys up front,” said Cable, who is also UCLA’s offensive coordinator. “I think I’ve spent a lot of time with those three young guys and I think I’ve probably over-cooked some things … but that’s all right.” Big crowd coming A UCLA official said late Friday that all general admission tickets were sold and fewer than 2,000 reserved tickets remained for what figures to be the biggest non-USC crowd in years. For those not wishing to park at the Rose Bowl, free shuttle buses are available at the Parsons Engineering parking lot in downtown Pasadena (Walnut and Fair Oaks). There is a $6 charge to park at the lot. The shuttles begin running four hours before kickoff, and stop one hour after the game. Olson’s allegiance Olson, who grew up minutes from Cal’s campus in Piedmont, makes no secret he is a big Bears fan. In fact, during UCLA’s bye last season, he attended the Cal-Stanford game. “I’m still a Cal fan,” Olson said. “Just not this week.” Olson said he still enjoys going to games in Berkeley, and was asked if he wore a Cal hat when in attendance. “No, I wouldn’t go that far,” he said with a huge grin. Forbath selected UCLA commit Kai Forbath, a kicker from Notre Dame High of Sherman Oaks, was selected to participate in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl all-star game Jan. 7 in San Antonio. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set!center_img For a while it seemed more of UCLA quarterback Drew Olson’s passes were batted down at the line of scrimmage than made it near the intended receiver last week against Washington. Bruins offensive line coach Tom Cable and center Mike McCloskey said the fault lies with those blocking for Olson. last_img read more
