California mayor arrested in suspected DUI crash

The mayor of a California city was driving under the influence when he rear-ended a car and injured four cheerleaders, police said.

Murrieta Mayor Alan Long, who was arrested on suspicion of DUI, was released Friday on $50,000 bail, according to The Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1sXEonC).

Long, who is also a battalion chief with the Anaheim Fire Department, failed a field sobriety test Thursday, but passed a breathalyzer test. Police are awaiting blood test results, police Lt. Julie Hoxmeier told the paper.

Long, 44, plowed into the back of the car carrying cheerleaders from a pep rally as it was stopped at a light, police said.

The girls, ranging in age from 14 to 17, were taken to the hospital with moderate to major injuries. Only one remains hospitalized.

Long did not immediately return an email seeking comment. Calls to his office rang unanswered.

Long will remain on duty with the Anaheim Fire Department as the investigation proceeds, said Lt. Bob Dunn, an Anaheim police spokesman.

Long made national news in July when he encouraged residents to oppose a federal government plan to process Central American immigrants at the U.S. Border Patrol facility in Murrieta.

Buses transporting the immigrants to the facility were forced to turn around when protesters blocked the road.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
