Two Florida men were arrested this week on suspicion of possessing a half-kilogram of cocaine after they were stopped for talking on a handheld cellphone while driving, officials said. The men - Herwood Barrington Walters, 25, and Courtney Lalor, 28 - were taken into custody about 9:18 p.m. Tuesday on North Central Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard on suspicion of possessing cocaine for sale, according to Glendale police reports. The pair provided officers with few clues about why they were in Glendale, but police believe “they were probably trying to sell the cocaine,” Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

Officials were at a loss to explain how a 53-year-old Glendale woman drove her Mercedes about a mile up a concrete Verdugo Wash channel Thursday before barreling to a stop just short of an 8-foot drop-off into the L.A. River. The woman, whom police didn't identify Thursday, entered the wash about 11 a.m. at Glenoaks Boulevard and Kenilworth Avenue after reportedly confusing the concrete-lined channel for a freeway on-ramp, officials said. About a mile later, and after reaching speeds of up to 70 mph, the woman finally stopped after barreling down about nine, 3-foot long steps.

I've lived all over the world - London, Barcelona, New York, Boston. My friends and family call me a world traveler. Now, the city where I've decided to settle down, Glendale, is home to the worst speeding I've ever seen. It's not the frequency that gets to you, it's the speed - a quiet neighborhood like ours deafened by random cars swerving through narrow streets at ungodly speeds. It's a peculiar and dangerous phenomenon. And it has to be stopped. Glendale consistently ranks near the top for having the most traffic accidents of any city in the country.
