The motorcycle club members in the video, which had more than 14,700 views on Wednesday morning, say they were doing nothing wrong when the Sonora police sergeant started harassing them. They say police unlawfully profiled the club members as a motorcycle gang in the incident that appeared to have occurred in downtown Sonora.

Judge orders trial for ex-firefighter accused in stabbing

A Superior Court judge determined last week that there is enough evidence against a former Lathrop-Manteca Fire District firefighter accused of stabbing someone outside of a Manteca bar late last year to move the matter towards trial.
Brandon Burlingame, 35, appeared before Judge Christine Eagle on Feb. 22 for a preliminary hearing in which the court determined that the charges against him – attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon – are supported by enough evidence to transfer the felony matter to the San Joaquin County Superior Courthouse in Stockton and proceed to an arraignment on information.
