11-year old girl arrested after high-speed chase in Alabama – An 11-year old Florida girl, vacationing with family members in an Alabama beach town, was charged with DUI, speeding, leaving the scene of an accident and reckless endangerment after a high speed chase. Orange Beach police spotted the speeding young driver around 10:30 pm and, when they tried to pull her over, she sped up. During the ensuing chase, the young driver sideswiped another car and reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour. It ended when the girl crashed the Chevy Monte Carlo she was driving. The girl told police she was on her way to pick up her sister at a local concert. The blood alcohol content of the under-aged driver was not released.

Toronto man fined for not driving drunk – Ross Bayley knew he had consumed too much wine during dinner so he elected to leave his car in a city operated parking lot. When he returned at 8:00 am he discovered he had received a $75 parking ticket for violating the city’s three-hour parking limit. He immediately went to city hall, explaining that he felt he had been responsible by not engaging in drunk driving, but officials only volunteered to reduce the cost of the ticket to $50. Bayley plans to fight the ticket in court, and to work on getting the parking enforcement rules changed to allow for overnight parking in downtown Toronto.
