Motorcycle club helps single mom after van breaks down on highway

(video)---SPEEGLEVILLE, TX (KXXV) -

A China Spring woman is thanking a motorcycle club after she was stranded on the side of the road in Speegleville with her son who has special needs.

Ashley Ballew was heading to Waco on Highway 6 a few weeks ago to take her son, Benjamin, to therapy. Benjamin has cerebral palsy.

"My van overheated. So I pulled over," Ballew said.

Smoke was coming out of the hood of the car. When she opened the hood, there was brown liquid everywhere.

"We sat there for about 10-15 minutes to cool off. I was going to drive it somewhere because I didn't know what else to do," Ballew said. "I put it in drive and it didn't go anywhere."

Fight outside Sonora bar leads to three arrests on battery charges

Three Sonora residents were arrested early Monday after an argument at a downtown Sonora bar escalated into a brawl on South Washington Street, during which a 57-year-old man sustained head injuries.

According to Sonora Police Department logs, at least six people may have been involved in the fight, but bystanders could identify no more than the three suspects and the victim, Sonora Chief of Police Turu VanderWiel said.

VanderWiel said officers are gathering additional bystander and witness statements and seeking surveillance footage.

The fight began as an argument in Zane’s Iron Horse Lounge in downtown Sonora, VanderWiel said. Witnesses said the victim had made “disrespectful comments to other patrons in the bar.”

“At some point that person was pushed or escorted out of the bar, and then the physical altercation ensued directly after,” he said.

Supreme Court Sides With Defendant In Motorcycle Search Case — But Two Conservatives Push Back

The court's majority said the search was illegal, but Justice Samuel Alito disagreed while Justice Clarence Thomas questioned whether Supreme Court limitations on illegally obtained evidence even apply to the states.

The Supreme Court ruled overwhelmingly in favor of a criminal defendant Tuesday in holding that a Virginia search of a man's motorcycle — parked in his driveway — was unconstitutional.

Nonetheless, the court's two most conservative justices — Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito — laid out a divergent pair of visions for restricting legal rights against police searches: one that would limit people's protections against illegal searches conducted by state and local police and one that would provide less protection under the Fourth Amendment than any other current justice believes exists.

Gas station shootout kills 2 in Detroit

Detroit — A 25-year-old man and a 39-year old man are both dead after the two exchanged gunfire Thursday morning at a gas station on the city’s west side.

The close-range gun battle took place about 5:30 a.m. Thursday outside of a Clark gas station on the 15900 block of Schaefer, at Puritan, police said.

Authorities said the conflict started when the 39-year-old and his 25-year-old girlfriend pulled up at the station to meet the woman’s ex-boyfriend, 25.

But both men were armed and the meeting quickly turned into a violent confrontation. The 25-year-old man was shot in the head. The 39-year-old man was shot in his chest.  Both died at the scene.

Thursday morning, investigators appeared to give special attention to three vehicles at the scene: a black motorcycle, a gray Ram minivan with Ohio license plates, and a dark-gray Montana minivan with Ohio plates.

Ameka Coleman identified the 25-year-old as her cousin, Martez Fenderson.
