Video shows California deputy kicking suspect in head [Video]

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California sheriff’s deputy is under criminal investigation after he was recorded on video kicking a pursuit suspect in the head while the man appeared to be surrendering. 

The San Bernardino County deputy, who was not named, has been placed on paid administrative leave, the Sun newspaper reported.

“This incident raises concerns. I expect my deputies to remain professional while engaging the public,” Sheriff John McMahon said in a statement.

The suspect was riding a motorcycle early Wednesday when he failed to pull over for a traffic stop and led the deputy on a high-speed chase on Interstate 15 and surface streets near Victorville, the newspaper said. He eventually ditched the motorcycle and hid at a car dealership. 

Video obtained by the website TMZ shows a man emerging from underneath a car, putting his hands up and then getting on his knees. The man begins

I’m 46 and single, have $120K in cash and $400K in retirement, and own my home. Should I buy my dream $30K motorcycle?

Dear Quentin,

I’m 46 and single, and I have no kids. I am currently having an internal debate as to whether to buy a $30,000 Indian motorcycle. It is a want, not a need. 

I have the deed on my home, which is valued at $360,000, and own both my vehicles outright. I have over $120,000 in various checking and savings accounts, and approximately $400,000 split between a Roth and traditional IRA on a popular robo-investing platform.

I’ve lived within my means my entire life, and though I have an eye for quality and expensive things, I’ve never really put things on credit and have only purchased items I’ve saved for.


‘I bring in $6,000 per month as a 100% disabled veteran and through a position I have on the board of a small nonprofit.’

Motorcycles are considered to be a small part of the emissions problem, according to the Ministry of Transport.

Motorcycles may be eligible for a Clean Car Discount in future.

Under the newly announced government policy, motorcycles were omitted from the plan which will give people buying electric vehicles discounts of up to $8625 for a new vehicle, and $3450 for a used import.

Plug in hybrid vehicles will receive a discount of between $2300 and $5750.

Ministry of Transport spokesperson Ewan Delany said motorcycles were not considered at the start of the Clean Car Discount, because they were a small part of the emissions problem.

“Motorcycles represent a small part of new vehicle sales in New Zealand and it’s estimated that in 2019 motorcycle emissions accounted for 0.4 percent of all CO2 emissions from our light vehicle fleet,”
