Lights, camera ... police action? An amateur film crew's robbery scene took a dangerous real-life turn Thursday when police, unaware the takeover at a Glendora coffee shop was staged, swarmed the building with their weapons drawn.

She ran back to her car and called 911, Staab said, prompting all eight of the Police Department's on-duty officers to rush to the scene.

With all that has been said about Kris Bryant's prodigious baseball talents — the tape-measure home runs, pitches he shouldn't have been able to hit but did — he is also a scholar-athlete, a highly intelligent young man. It must run in the family. Because Grandpa was certainly no fool. From the time Bryant was 8 or so, college baseball's most feared slugger recalls his grandfather awarding him $20 for every home run.
