Man Tries to Steal Officer's Car

A vehicle burglar picked the wrong car Thursday night. APD officers received a call that a man with no shirt was chasing a man in a Dallas Cowboys jersey with a handgun. Turns out the man with a gun was an off duty corrections officer and the man he was chasing had tried to break into his 2014 Dodge Charger. The off duty officer was able to run down the suspect, 21 year old Donavan Mincey, and took him back to his house to await officers. Mincey had a Dodge key and a key fob on him as well as a small amount of marijuana. He was booked into Potter County.

Woman Stabs Man; Takes Off With Children

A woman is behind bars after stabbing a man and taking off with two children. Officers received a call that a Hispanic man had been stabbed by an Asian woman in the 5400 block of Saratoga. One unit was able to find the suspect vehicle 39 year old Viengthong Sikalasinh was driving, and started chasing the vehicle. However, the chase was called off when the officers spotted the children in the back. Sikalasinh eventually pulled over into a home on North Acres and was arrested. There were witnesses to the stabbing, yet, when officers arrived at the house on Saratoga, the victim was no where to be found. Sikalasinh was booked into Potter County.

Bell 525 Takes Off

The Bell 525 Relentless has taken off. Bell Helicopter took the brand new commercial aircraft to the sky for the first time Thursday, testing it's flight control system and to set an idea of how future test flights will look. Over 60 of these helicopters are reserved under letters of intent, and Bell's website states the 525 "is designed to provide operators....unmatched situational awarness and the ability to perform a wide variety of missions under challenging weather conditions." It is the world's first fly-by-wire commercial helicopter and the company states it will be delivering the aircraft to customers in 2017.

Seliger Talks Future Legislation

With the recent legislative session ended, policy makers are looking to the future. Local senator Kel Seliger told KGNC it's time to start looking at the things they weren't able to get done this time around, like SB 313, as well as look at other ideas. Seliger often holds public meetings in his district to see what school boards want to change during the next session. He says that's the first place he will look for new ideas.

Lake Meredith Offers Events Through August

This Fourth of July, the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area and Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument is rolling out a series of events to happen all the way through the week. Tim Cruze says there will be everything from "flintknapping" to "prehistoric weapons" with something happening every day from Saturday July 4th all the way to August 30th.

Lexus and Challenger Race on Bell

It started with a domestic dispute and ended with several arrests. APD motor officers observed a Silver Lexus chasing a Black Dodge Challenger at a high rate of speed southbound on Bell. Officers were able to stop the vehicles on the 5400 block of Granada. An investigation revealed the driver of the Challenger and her passenger had a verbal altercation with the driver in the Lexus. The drivers were each booked in Randall County Jail for Deadly Conduct due to excess speed, among other chargers. The passengers were also booked on various charges. 

Tipsy Tow

Many of us are planning to celebrate this Fourth Of July with a few adult beverages, but no one wants a drunk driving incedent, which is why AAA Texas is offing their Tipsy Tow program. If your festivities include too much drinking, give them a call at 1-800-222-4357 and they will come pick you up for free and tow you and your car home, as long as it's within ten miles. The life saving service will be from 6 Friday through midnight Saturday.
 
A regular AAA Texas contracted roadside service truck will be dispatched. 
 
For rides further than 10 miles, drivers should expect topay the rate charged by the tow truck contractor, to be agreed upon before the tow.
 
The following situations do not qualify for Tipsy Tow: A request to tow an inoperable vehicle, a tow to another drinking establishment, repair facility, or any other location other than the driver's home or hotel where they are a registered guest, to start a vehicle, change a flat tire, or deliver gas, or for a "taxi" service or to transport anyone other than the driver of the vehicle. 
 
Other reminders and helpful tips to keep yourself and others safe include to designate a non-drinking driver, do not serve alcohol to anyone under 21, call a friend or family member for a ride, never ride as a passenger in a car driven by someone under the influence, keep a cab company telephone number in your wallet, have a back-up plan on where to spend the night, and take the car keys away from friends and relatives who have had too much to drink.
