Sheriff Bill Brown, on horseback and preparing to take part in the Fiesta Parade, personally arrested a homeless man accused of stabbing another transient at around 12:10 p.m. Friday in Pershing Park.

According to police spokesperson Lt. Paul McCaffrey, Brown and a few of his mounted deputies were lining up in the parade staging area when they noticed an altercation at the south end of the park. They rode up to find two men engaged in a fight. The suspect, 36-year-old Isaiah Jones, had reportedly stabbed the 50-year-old victim in the gut and was taken into custody. He was transported to County Jail and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

The victim was transported to Cottage Hospital — his wound wasn’t considered life-threatening — but he refused treatment and left, McCaffrey said.

Oh yes, spirityanker is giving us a play by play on how it all works. With spirityankers years of whining and tin foil hat theories one would think medication would have worked by now. Oh well, time will tell I guess.

But, I will have to take a line for my next press release, "Sheriff Wide Load saying, 'yippee kay yay, mother f**ker!'" Now that's some real journalistic talent!!!

They moved the grain silos off the main street in 2007 in Moscow, Idaho, 94% white folks, where he was police chief before moving to.Lompoc.

This link is for grain elevators, there's also a website about a grain silo turned into a theater, sounds cool. I thought of it because I associated horses and cowboys with agriculture/farming, not Fiesta, and had seen this a while ago.
