A family says a coyote ambushed and injured a 2-year old girl outside her Los Angeles home in a daytime attack before it was chased off by her father. Home security video obtained by KTLA-TV shows the animal grab and drag the toddler across her lawn and sidewalk, just seconds after her father took her out of a car seat, set her down and turned back inside the vehicle to gather her toys. He heard the girl screaming on the other side of the SUV, then realized she was being attacked. He shouted and charged at the animal, causing it to release the girl and run off. The mother says the attack left the girl with scratches and bruises.
Jim Kolbe, who represented Arizona in Congress for more than two decades, has died. A statement from Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey's office says Kolbe died Saturday at the age of 80. Kolbe was elected to the U.S. House in 1984, serving 11 terms before he retired. In Congress, he often was at odds with other Republicans over his support for free trade, an immigrant guest worker program and gay rights. He reluctantly announced in 1996 that he was gay but said he didn't want that to define him. Ducey called Kolbe's life and service to Arizona remarkable.
The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously on Friday to ban the drilling of new oil and gas wells and to phase out existing ones over the next 20 years. The vote comes after more than a decade of complaints from city residents that pollution drifting from wells was affecting their health. Los Angeles was once a booming oil town, but many of its oilfields are now played out.
Los Angeles County, the nation's most populous, is getting a new sheriff. Robert Luna took a ceremonial oath of office Saturday to head the county Sheriff's Department. He promised to focus on integrity and collaboration. Luna takes charge after the turbulent single term of Alex Villanueva, which was marked by clashes with members of the county Board of Supervisors and criticism that he downplayed allegations of ganglike groups of deputies running amok within the agency. Luna was elected last month. His term officially begins Monday. With nearly 10,000 sworn deputies, LA's is the largest sheriff’s department in the country. The county is home to about 10 million people.

Former U.S. Congressman Steve Pearce has been reelected as chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico. Pearce garnered 55% of the vote Saturday, beating out four others vying for the post. He'll serve another two years, leading the party through the 2024 election. He acknowledged the difficulty ahead and says he sees the work as a marathon, not a sprint. The Republican Party failed to make significant gains in New Mexico's general election. The GOP lost its only congressional seat, and Democrats swept a long list of statewide races for governor, secretary of state, attorney general and state Supreme Court seats.
Residents affected by an August flood that hit a West Virginia county are frustrated that federal emergency aid is not coming. Rhonda Hudson’s Kanawha County home took on more than a foot of water when a nearby creek flooded Aug. 15. Hudson told WCHS-TV she is living out of bags and boxes and using electric heaters to stay warm. The Federal Emergency Management Agency denied Kanawha County assistance on Thursday. The agency declared the county did not have enough widespread damage to be approved for a disaster declaration.
A manslaughter case against former Tucson, Arizona police Officer Ryan Remington is going back to a grand jury. A Pima County Superior Court judge agreed Friday with Remington's attorney, who argued that prosecutors had presented misleading statements to an initial panel. But Judge Danelle Liwski says she doesn't believe prosecutors did so intentionally. Remington was indicted earlier this year on a manslaughter charge in the death of a shoplifting suspect. Richard Lee Richards was riding a mobility scooter and was shot multiple times after he left a Walmart store where Remington was working security. Remington was fired earlier this year for what police said was excessive use of force.
