Today in history
Today is Wednesday, March 31, the 90th day of 2010. There are 275 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On March 31, 1968, at the conclusion of a nationally broadcast address on Vietnam, President Lyndon B. Johnson stunned his audience by declaring, “I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President.”

Ten years ago: The U.N. Security Council decided to let Iraq spend more money to repair its oil industry — an investment intended to boost the amount of food and medicine Baghdad could buy through the U.N. humanitarian program.
Five years ago: Terri Schiavo, 41, died at a hospice in Pinellas Park, Fla., 13 days after her feeding tube was removed in a wrenching right-to-die dispute that engulfed the courts, Congress and the White House and divided the country.

Getaway plan gone awry

CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a motorist fleeing officers in Cleveland abandoned his car and jumped a fence — landing in what turned out to be a prison yard.

Garfield Heights police say the chase started in that suburb early Monday over a traffic violation and reached speeds of 90 mph.

Police say that after a race through several communities, the driver and a passenger bolted from the car and headed for a fence.

They apparently did not realize it was on the outside the state women’s prison in Cleveland.

They were arrested along with two other passengers who also tried to flee.

Woman gets six months for fake-breast heist
WESTMINSTER (AP) — An Orange County woman’s new breasts cost her six months in jail. Yvonne Jean Pampellonne was sentenced Monday in Westminster for using a fraudulent line of credit to obtain $12,000 in cosmetic surgery, including breast implants and liposuction.

The 30-year-old woman had pleaded guilty to burglary, grand theft and identity theft. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail and was placed on three years’ probation. Restitution was also ordered by the Westminster judge, but the amount wasn’t immediately clear.

Littering leads to more serious charge
FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) — A Fort Pierce man was arrested on vehicle theft and drug charges after reportedly throwing a plastic cup a deputy’s car. The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office reported that a 24-year-old man was driving early Saturday morning when he tossed the cup, which hit a patrol car. The deputy activated his lights, but the man reportedly did not pull over. He eventually stopped and ran away but was caught when K-9 units found him in a tree.

The man was charged with multiple counts, including cocaine possession, vehicle theft and hit and run.

Police: Tenn. man rams Obama fan     
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A 70-year-old Nashville man was accused of ramming his sport utility vehicle several times into the back of a vehicle that had a Obama/Biden bumper sticker. Harry K. Weisiger, a retiree, made obscene gestures and pointed at the campaign sticker for President Barack Obama and running mate Joe Biden before he smashed into schoolteacher Mark Duren’s car, police said. Weisiger has been charged with reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of the accident and refusing to take a field sobriety test.

The incident appears to be among the overheated partisan political atmosphere, including death threats sent to members of Congress and their families who supported health care reform.

Duren had picked up his 10-year-old daughter from school Thursday when he stopped near the Belmont University campus.
