An unusual suspect was placed into the back of a San Diego Police Department patrol vehicle after breaking into a Rancho Peñasquitos police station Tuesday. "Don’t you bark at me; you caused a big ruckus tonight," a police officer can be heard telling the dog who refused his right to remain silent. What a "ruff" night. See the video below.
What sounds like an awful situation turned into a really heartwarming story about persistence, patience and the power of love. Kary Munoz Lopez allowed us to follow along as she received a diploma, graduating with honors even though she has been making her way through high school without her mother and father living in the U.S. Her older sisters, her teachers and softball helped her through it. It's a story that will leave you hopeful about the future.
Every Aztec alum can brag a little this week after the performance of this year's MVP Kawhi Leonard in the NBA Finals. He's the third player to win Finals MVP with two franchises, joining only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James. But San Diegans always knew he was destined for greatness.
