RS Source said “The chase was after me. I was chased down at gunpoint by the car, he pulled next to me, said if I call the cops I’m fucking dead and he chased me all the way until the police got to me and he fled police. Two men were chasing me at gunpoint. Lucky to be alive. Both involved were arrested.”

(AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard Academy has named a field house after the school’s first African-American coach.
The facility, part of Roland Hall gymnasium, has been named the Dr. Hallie Gregory Field House.
Gregory, a Rockford, Illinois-native, began teaching and coaching at the academy in 1971. He became the head track coach in 1980, head basketball coach in 1984 and later served as an assistant athletic director.
He was inducted into the Coast Guard Academy Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001. Gregory was also the first African-American teacher at Guilford High School in Rockford and the first African-American coach at Moorhead State College in Moorhead, Minnesota.
