    Ex-La Habra police chief Alan Hostetter charged in connection with Jan. 6 Capitol riot
    A former La Habra police chief and five others were charged Thursday, June 10, with crimes related to the Jan. 6 insurgency at the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump seeking to prevent the certification of the Electoral College balloting in favor of Joe Biden.
    Alan Hostetter, 56, who led rallies in Orange County against coronavirus restrictions last summer, is a yoga instructor who took a medical retirement in 2010 after eight months leading the La Habra Police Department.

    Trevor Bauer struggles again as Dodgers lose a blowout
    LOS ANGELES ― Trevor Bauer’s spin rate was not responsible for the Dodgers’ flagging offense Saturday night. It could not keep home runs by Texas Rangers Jason Martin and Nate Lowe in the ballpark in the ninth inning.
    Bauer’s spin – or the persistent lack thereof – was the most troubling takeaway from the Dodgers’ 12-1 loss to the Rangers. A home run by AJ Pollock was the only thing separating the Dodgers from their first shutout loss of the season.

    Mater Dei sprinter Domani Jackson won the 100 meters in a personal-best time of 10.48. Jackson’s time is the fastest this season in Orange County and fourth-best in the state.

    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Israel Adesanya won a unanimous decision in a rematch against Huntington Beach’s Marvin Vettori to defend his middleweight championship at UFC 263 Saturday night.
    Adesanya (21-1) kept out of reach from Vittori’s powerful punches most of the night and used his feet effectively, keeping the Italian fighter off balance.
    Adesanya won 50-45 on all three judges’ scorecards in the second full-capacity UFC event without coronavirus-related restrictions.

    Shakur Stevenson beats Jeremiah Nakathila to claim WBO jr. lightweight belt
    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson said knockout specialist Jeremiah Nakathila was scary at times during their 12-round bout.
    Judging from his dominating performance on Saturday night — and the judges’ scorecards — he certainly didn’t appear scared.
    Stevenson unanimously outpointed Jeremiah Nakathila to take the vacant WBO interim junior lightweight title, winning by identical scores of 120-107 from all three judges.

    Marina boys volleyball finishes strong to win Div. III in CIF SoCal Regionals
    HUNTINGTON BEACH – After his team let leads slip away in games two and three of the CIF SoCal Division III Regional final, first-year Marina boys volleyball coach Ryan Parker called time out after the Vikings let another lead slip in the fourth set.
    The Vikings hung on to win the fourth set and went on a tear to win the final set for a 25-15, 20-25, 23-25, 25-23, 15-7 victory over Carlsbad on Saturday night at Marina High.

    Donovan Mitchell was no longer playing solo on the Bonneville Salt Flats.
    Paul George was no longer playing against his own shadows.
    Kawhi Leonard was no longer using the Oliver Twist approach, taking only what he was given.
    It leads to the type of Western Conference semifinal series that the Clippers were hoping to create, after they left the Utah beehive trailing, 0-2.
    A longer one.
    The first step was a smooth and ruthless 132-106 victory over the top-seeded Jazz in Game 3, the type of pattern

    Clippers converge on Donovan Mitchell as Jazz’s injury concerns grow
    LOS ANGELES — Moments after taking a hobbled jog back to the visiting locker room, Donovan Mitchell slipped back through the Utah Jazz bench and slung an arm over the shoulder of his head coach.
    It looked at least a little like the 24-year-old was lobbying for a return to the court as the Jazz trailed in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of their second-round playoff series against the Clippers. But as he tried to work Quin Snyder on Saturday night, Kawhi Leonard was working on the court: The C

    Dodgers place Max Muncy (oblique) on 10-day injured list
    LOS ANGELES ― Between his power and patience on offense, and his ability to shift effortlessly between first and second base on defense, Max Muncy has been the Dodgers’ most valuable player this season. Until recently, he was equal parts healthy and productive.
    Muncy missed one game entirely and was relegated to the bench in two others, after he injured his ankle on June 4 in Atlanta. On Friday, Muncy strained his right oblique muscle early in a 12-1 victory over the Texas Rangers. O

    There’s no problem so terrible that the California Legislature cannot find a way to make it worse.
    That’s the story of Senate Bill 2, a legislative effort to create a process for decertifying problem law enforcement officers. California is one of only four states that doesn’t have a decertification system, and there’s a broad consensus, even among law enforcement unions, that this should be remedied.
    But leave it to the California Legislature to turn a police reform bill

    LOS ALAMITOS — The Bonita baseball team had plenty of baserunners throughout its CIF-SS Division 2 quarterfinal playoff game Saturday, but couldn’t get a timely hit to take a lead.
    In the seventh inning, the Bearcats got that hit and a lot more in a come-from-behind rally to beat Los Alamitos 7-4 and advance to the semifinals.
