michael.torres.mug.shotBreakfast reading from the Voice Media Empire: Torres was busted on suspicion of harassment, domestic violence and violating a protection order for repeatedly hurling the projectiles at his girlfriend’s window early yesterday morning. And to add that special touch of creepiness, the icy mounds were soaked with blood — presumably his, though there are no DNA test results yet to prove it. Westword has the story.

scream.mask.bank.robbers.lakewood.1.croppedBreakfast reading from the Voice Media EmpireA series of bank robberies perpetrated by men wearing masks familiar from the movie Scream culminated in a massive manhunt for three suspects, one of whom wound up on the FBI’s ten most wanted list.

And there’s a new theory about her disappearance, too. Westword has the story.

darsean-kelley-one_aclu-videoBreakfast reading from the Voice Media Empire: Kelley was facing away from the cops with his hands up — a pose that clearly made him no danger to anyone in the vicinity. But an instant later, he was shot in the back by a Taser and fell heavily to the ground. The officer in question seems to have felt he had proof his response was justified, telling Kelley, “It’s all on video, sweetheart” — a reference to his body camera, which was recording throughout the incident. Westword has the story.
