FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A federal jury will decide whether some Fort Wayne police officers used excessive force during a standoff at a downtown apartment that ended with a man being fatally shot. A U.S. district judge previously dismissed legal claims against the officers who fatally shot 28-year-old Rudy Escobedo in 2005, saying they acted reasonably when he pointed his weapon at them. A wrongful death claim against the city also was dismissed.

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - A judge has refused to dismiss criminal charges against a Muncie man over what authorities say was an operation to train pit bulls for dog fights. The attorney for 37-year-old Rahsaan Johnson argued this week that the defense was hampered by the euthanization of 11 dogs that were seized in March and the adopting out of the other dogs before a defense expert could evaluate them. The Star Press reports ( http://bitly.com/TK1NCN ) a Delaware County judge ruled Thursday that prosecutors will have to prove charges against Johnson regarding each dog during next week's trail.

Stephanie Turner held up a black shiny tennis shoe wearing a look on her face that searched for a punchline. “They sell crack. They sell guns,” Turner said of area convenience stores that haven't been raided by police. “These shoes aren't killing anybody. Viagra isn't killing anybody.” Selling Viagra over the counter at the Olive Street Convenience Store did get Turner's friend, Ebrahim al-Malabeh, a seat in jail instead of among west-side neighbors who met Wednesday for another round of community meetings at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An attorney for an Indianapolis financier convicted of swindling some $200 million from investors as his business fell apart claims the government caused the company's collapse by ruining its reputation. The claims were included in documents that Tim Durham's lawyer, John Tompkins, filed Wednesday in federal court, protesting a recommendation that a judge sentence Durham to 225 years in prison. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Nov. 30. A federal jury in Indianapolis convicted Durham in June of securities fraud, conspiracy and 10 counts of wire fraud.

Police say a dance-floor fight inside a bar early Thursday morning turned into a parking lot brawl so severe that an imprint of an attacker’s shoe could still be seen on the side of the victim’s head hours after the fight had ended. St. Joseph County police arrested four people after the 2:30 a.m. fight at the Blue Jeans Bar and Grill, 13261 Chippewa Blvd., near the AM General plant just east of Mishawaka. According to county police records, it is at least the seventh fight reported to police at the bar since mid-October, when problems at the bar led to county police raiding the place.
