Assemblyman Roger Hernandez, D-West Covina, has been charged in a drunk driving case stemming from his March arrest in the Northern California city of Concord, the Contra Costa Times reported .  From the article:  Concord police said blood test results show that Hernandez had a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent, the minimum level for DUI in California. In an apologetic statement released last week, Hernandez said he thought he was sober enough to drive after "drinking a couple of drinks over the course of an evening.

Maybe the first round victory will suffice until next season. Heading into the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs as the No. 15 seed, the Falcons knew they’d have to face No. 2 Santa Monica if they beat West Covina in the first round, and probably at Santa Monica. Unsurprisingly, after Crescenta Valley beat West Covina, the San Antonio league’s No. 3 team, the Falcons had to travel to Santa Monica to face the Vikings. Though they put up a good defense effort, Santa Monica put up a better one and the Vikings defeated the Falcons, 60-30, last Saturday.

The 10 and Under CSA Mustangs beat West Covina, 6-2, to win the Pony Baseball District Championship and advance to the Regional Tournament in Walnut this weekend. La Crescenta was led by the fine pitching of Josh Cook and Brett Klein. Cook started the game and pitched three solid innings. He gave up only one earned run before handing over the ball over to reliever Klein who closed out the game by shutting out West Covina for the final three innings. With the score tied 2-2 in the top of the sixth inning, Bruno Alonso put La Crescenta ahead with a clutch base hit to drive in Nolan Rea. Joey Torres and Tanner Carrico then walked to load the bases.

A Montrose man turned himself into authorities at the West Covina Police Department the same day officials from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station were looking for him for allegedly trying to kill his girlfriend. Michael Buckner, 30, and his girlfriend were having a fight around 3 a.m. June 22 when he threatened her with a knife, according to sheriff's reports. She called the sheriff's department for help and he left before deputies arrived. He later returned when the apartment was empty, reports stated.

Shortly before 6 p.m. on Saturday night, Crescenta Valley High's football season officially came to an end. In reality, its fate was likely sealed when Burbank defeated Burroughs, 47-21, on Friday night to wrap up the Pacific League, leaving Crescenta Valley, Burbank and Burroughs in a three-way tie for second place in league, but the Falcons on the outside of an automatic top-three playoff berth due to losing a coin flip. And on Saturday evening, the Falcons' bid for the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division's lone at-large entry was stymied when West Covina, out of the Hacienda League, received it. “I'm really shocked,” Falcons Coach Paul Schilling said.

Hamlet Nalbandyan ARROYO -- It's safe to say that Robbie Neyland was in his element Wednesday in a second-round game of the Arroyo Invitational at Arroyo High. The senior guard, like all the La Canada High boys' basketball team's starters, played just three quarters against West Covina, but he did plenty of damage, hitting seven three-pointers on his way to scoring what he believes is a career-high 26 points. The Spartan starters played just three quarters because that's all that was needed of them in the 80-52 thumping of the Bulldogs.

A registered sex offender from Glendora is accused of making harassing and obscene telephone calls to a Covina business associated with children, police said. Paul J. Cricks, 48, was arrested at a West Covina motel Wednesday, Covina police said. Police said they were summoned to the business, which they did not identify, after the owner received several graphic and sexual telephone calls. The caller's phone number was blocked at the time. Covina police said they put a trace on the business' phone, allowing them to capture the telephone number the next time a call came in. Detectives said they tracked the number to Cricks, whom a state website lists as a sex offender registered with Glendora Police Department.

ARCADIA - A potent offense registering 12 hits overcame costly errors late in the game for the St. Francis High baseball squad in the opening game of the Apache Invitational Saturday morning at Arcadia High. After giving up two game-tying runs in the fifth inning on two errors, the Golden Knights rebounded to re-take the lead in the sixth and opened the floodgates in the seventh en route to a 9-4 win over West Covina in pool play. “When we took a 2-0 lead early, we went into a lull,” Golden Knights interim Coach Aaron Milam said.

Galestian was the instructor at an all-day intensive deejaying seminar and workshop Sunday in an intimate setting at the Hollywood Production Center in Glendale.
