Re: “Man Indicted on Fake Cavs Tickets Scam: UPDATE

The vast majority of tickets at Quicken Loans Arena are electronic (FlashSeats). Cav's season ticket holders are overwhelmingly served by FlashSeats. Thinking that some craigslist idiot has great paper tickets for seats at an important Cavs game and is selling them at a discount is like hanging a sign around your neck saying "Rob me, please!"

Re: “David Gilbert Reminds Us That Many of the People Coming for the GOP Convention Are Freeloaders

They'll probably spend half the convention moaning about how high sales tax is in the region: Thanks John Kasich.

Re: “Bainbridge Leaders Reviewing Meijer Proposal to Build Atop Geauga Lake Park Land

Forget rescuing the wooden Big Dipper. It has sustained irreparable damage by 8 winters with absolutely no maintenance. The boards are still standing but the skeleton is rotten to the core and should be torn down. Even if someone wanted to use a coaster on that sight, it would be cheaper to tear this down and build anew than to revive this. Wooden coasters require regular maintenance to survive.

Re: “UPDATE: "Bar Rescue" Comes to Ripper Owens' Rock House in Akron

"Bar Rescue" usually highlights some combination of owner/manager alcoholism and/or absenteeism, disregard for cleanliness and public health and safety, misplaced loyalty to poor workers, and love of a poor decor or theme.

Re: “North Ridgeville Man Sues Cleveland Police Over Unlawful Arrest

Either the complainant and his lawyers are grossly misstating the facts of the case (not knowing the name of the arresting officer is a bad sign) or the police clearly didn't follow proper procedures.
Smart cops always pull you over for some traffic violation: weaving, improper lane change, license tag not illuminated,...something. That puts them in the driver's seat in case nothing else pans out.
Nobody can force you to submit to any test. The state allows them to revoke your license on the spot but that doesn't mean you're guilty of driving while impaired.
For example a driver on crutches or arthritic knees really can't be expected to perform the walk the line test and should obviously respectfully refuse to take the test . Caffeine can cause one to fail the nystagmus gaze test so it should be respectfully declined as well. If the police want to pursue the issue, they will then arrest you for suspicion of OVI and take you for a breathalyzer or blood alcohol test. Always ask for the blood test since it trumps the others as B.A.C. is directly is specified in the statute, If you refuse to take breath, blood or urine tests, you will certainly be arrested and your license suspended, but your lawyer may still have a case.
Even those convicted of first time DUI can generally get driving privileges to go to work, etc.

I recently experienced poor job performance by CPD when I was pulled over for an illegal left turn (the no-left-turn sign was actually missing.) He unprofessionally made fun of me being from out of town (isn't Cleveland trying to attract tourists?) and the ethnicity of my passengers. I think when he saw my spotless driving record he decided to let me go without a citation.

Re: “Josh Gordon Pens Open Letter to Charles Barkley, Other Media About His Failed Alcohol Test

If I am on probation or have a testing regimen in place with my employer, then I am even dumber for violating an agreement I made. Josh Gordon cannot honor an agreement and should be sent packing to the CFL.
