As I reflect back on the stories that I’ve covered in the year of 2015, I chose the top five that stood out to me as important stories of 2015.Recycling and reusing jamboree event

From there, he allegedly fled the scene and winded up at the airport, getting into a fight with someone.

MCSO Deputy Arnold Noriega arrived on the scene and began questioning Ducan and learned of his revoked license. He then asked if he was willing to take the field sobriety test, which he agreed to, but, he told Noriega that he would not pass it because he was “all buzzed out.”
