“He Who is Without Sin”


Just in from the battlefront in Riverside County, California:

Riverside, CA Nov. 21 (AP)
The California Highway Patrol’s Inland assistant chief was arrested by his own CHP officers for drunken driving after allegedly crashing his CHP-issued Ford Crown Victoria into a parked car.

Michael Maples, 58, was arrested at his home in Reche Canyon about 11:15 p.m. Thursday after he lost control of the Crown Victoria and struck the car in his driveway, CHP Capt. Sharon Baker said Monday.

Indio, CA Nov. 21 (AP)
– A veteran Riverside County sheriff’s sergeant was charged with two felony drunken driving counts for a major injury off-duty crash in Rancho Mirage…

Sgt. Richard Kamstra, who is also charged with a special allegation of causing serious injuries to a victim, surrendered Monday, district attorney’s spokeswoman Ingrid Wyatt said. He was booked and released on $50,000 bond.

Kamstra, whose blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent, was involved in a Sept. 24 three-car wreck at Dinah Shore and Mission Hills. Rancho Mirage resident Gene Fasciana suffered major injuries to his left leg and a teenage boy was also injured.

“I have seen the enemy…and he is us.” (With apologies to Pogo and Walt Kelly.)
