Woke up to 24F weather this morning. Spent a couple minutes scraping my windshield before I hit the road, unlike this gentleman who just fired up his rig and whipped out into traffic with zero visibility. He spent the next ten minutes hanging his head outside his truck trying to see where he was going. Seems responsibile.
Starting to get some video of the shopping experience many were able to enjoy this year.
This first clip shows the orderly distribution of flat screen televisions at Walmart. For some reason it ends with the police taking people to the ground:
Another Walmart, again televisions appear to be the problem for shoppers:
Seems to be a trend here:
And here is footage from our friends in Puerto Rico:
What a wonderful start to the 2013 holiday shopping season!
Caught this on my way through Arlington this afternoon, second car accident at this intersection in about a week.
I recently noticed this sign on 88th near state street in Marysville. This intersection has been a popular location for panhandlers, with the horrific traffic backups that occur here they have a captive audience to solicit cash. Too early to say if it’s working, but nobody was standing there with a cardboard sign when I snapped this photo.
Had to make a run to Spokane today, ran into this thunderstorm as a I came back into the Everett area from the airport. Screen grab from the dashcam.
Video of a police chase a couple of days ago in Tennessee. Check out the construction worker at the start of the chase, bike buzzes past him and the patrol car can’t figure out if he wants to drive on the sidewalk or the roadway.
Always refreshing to see law enforcement interacting with public in a positive way. Yesterday a Yakima man decided to grab some video of the local SWAT team after hearing one of their flashbangs pop off at a neighbor’s house. Seems like a reasonable thing to do, not everyday you get to see the para-military SWAT guys playing with their toys.
Apparently that was unacceptable to one of the gentlemen wearing a soldier’s costume. He arrested the man for obstruction, even though he was on public property and well within his rights. These guys are good at lobbing flashbangs and driving tanks around, just a bit rusty on the first amendment.
Some video from the technical water rescue this afternoon at Twin Lakes Park in Marysville. A 19 year old male reportedly was under water for about an hour. Multiple agencies, the Snohomish County dive team and county helicopter were involved in the rescue. The victim was transported by Marysville medic unit to Everett’s Providence Hospital with critical injuries.
$2,500 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in a burglary that took place in Marysville last friday. Here is video showing the two vehicles involved in the burglary:
The homeowner is offering the $2,500 reward. If you can identify any of the vehicles or people in this video, please contact the Marysville Police Department at (360) 363-8300.
Apparently this Hyundai with U.S. Government plates drug this carpet roll down Interstate 5 for 10 miles today:
