A man charged with spitting on a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was acquitted of battery this week after his defense attorney produced video footage that jurors said contradicted testimony by deputies. Several jurors said after the trial that deputies gave conflicting accounts of the October 2010 arrest of Steven Sartori and that the video did not show one of the deputies wiping away spit as she testified she had. The video, they said, also showed the deputies using more force than they acknowledged on the stand.

A Los Angeles police officer shocked a handcuffed woman with a Taser stun gun while joking with other officers at the scene, according to interviews and law enforcement records, adding to a series of controversial use-of-force incidents at the LAPD. Officer Jorge Santander then appeared to lie about the December 2010 incident repeatedly in written reports. The three other LAPD officers who witnessed Santander stun the woman all corroborated his version of events when first questioned and failed to tell supervisors that one officer had recorded a video of the encounter, the records show.

Video footage of naked, screaming inmates being drenched with pepper spray was aired in federal court Tuesday as evidence in a lawsuit to force California to improve its treatment of mentally ill state prisoners. For nearly an hour Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton's Sacramento courtroom was filled with panicked screams from videos showing prisoners in pain, begging for help and pleading for the spraying to stop, while guards shouted over and over, "Cuff up!" In one case, the inmate had been playing with his feces and refused to take medication.

Pat Polinger, co-owner of Vidiots, the Santa Monica video store and coffeehouse, joined an arts-oriented tour of the Soviet Union earlier this month, looking for two weeks of "fun and merriment." She got an unexpected bonus--political intrigue. She helped smuggle out video footage--possibly the first to reach the United States--of the brutal suppression by Russian soldiers of a peaceful demonstration in Soviet Georgia on April 9. The incident at Tbilisi, the capitol of Soviet Georgia, continues to rock Kremlin politics, according to recent news reports, with President Mikhail S. Gorbachev promising a full investigation.

In a cost-cutting move, three rival L.A. TV stations said Tuesday they would begin pooling some of their newsgathering operations June 15, sending out one camera crew instead of three to shoot video of news conferences and other general-interest events that all of them can use. The three are NBC-owned KNBC-TV Channel 4, Fox-owned KTTV-TV Channel 11 and KTLA-TV Channel 5, which is owned by Tribune Co. (which also owns The Times). They said they would continue to operate independently in all other aspects of their businesses, including editing and presenting the shared video footage as each newsroom chooses.

Friends and family of a teen killed last week when a FedEx truck slammed into a charter bus full of prospective college students gathered for an emotional vigil Monday night at El Monte High School. Adrian Castro, 19, was courteous and stubborn in his own way, making sure that anything he started, he finished, said his dad, Raul Castro. “That was my right-hand man and now he's no longer with me,” he added. Adrian Castro was among 10 people killed last week when the truck slammed into the bus headed for Humboldt State University for a spring tour.

ORLAND, Calif. - Investigators found no physical evidence that a FedEx freight truck was on fire before it collided with a charter tour bus in Northern California last week, killing 10 people, authorities said Sunday. "Our fire expert reviewed the median and the highway, and found no physical evidence of fire before the impact," said Mark Rosekind, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board. Fire engulfed both vehicles after the crash. Those findings contradict the eyewitness accounts of a couple whose Nissan Altima was sideswiped by the truck.

Scientists have strapped cameras onto free-swimming sharks, capturing a shark's-eye view of their underwater world. The footage from 14 tiger sharks, six Galapagos sharks, five sandbar sharks, five bluntnose sixgill sharks and a prickly shark is the first to be taken of sharks, by sharks in their natural environment. One clip from a camera attached to a male sandbar shark show the pursuit of a female; another shows its wearer's point of view as it meets up with dozens of other sharks in a mixed group - including sandbars, oceanic blacktips and scalloped hammerheads - and swimming together for most of the day. The discoveries, presented last week at the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, reveal the complex daily lives of these fierce, sharp-toothed swimmers in their natural environment.  “I was really amazed by all the images we got back,” said lead author Carl Meyer, a marine biologist at the University of Hawaii.

On Paul Brownfield's "The Artist Currently Known as Amazing" [June 10]: With tickets in hand to Prince's last show at the Staples Center, the hyperbole by then all but guaranteeing one incredible night, I was disillusioned that he started the show via shameless video footage of his Hall of Fame induction, setting a tone of embarrassing self-importance. His flamboyant red outfit with white polka dots killed any masculine delusions I might have entertained about him, and the excruciatingly long wait for his encore became instead a dare to leave (which I took)

How was the Cheonan sunk? U.S. Naval officials who participated in the international investigation point to the destruction of the HMAS Torrens, a 30-year-old decommissioned vessel that the Australian military used in 1999 in a weapons test of a Mark 48-Mod 4 torpedo. Video footage of the torpedo strike is widely available on the Internet. "It is illustrative of the forces out there," said Rear Admiral Thomas J. Eccles, who is chief engineer and deputy commander for naval systems engineering, and headed the U.S. team that investigated the Cheonan.

CAIRO -- An Egyptian appeals court in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria on Saturday reduced the 11-year jail sentences meted out to 14 female protesters after the case sparked a nationwide outcry. The women, who had been jailed since late October, were instead given suspended sentences of one year. In addition, seven underage girls who had been sentenced to a juvenile detention facility until they turned 18 were placed on probation. Human rights activists hailed the decision, but said the heavy jail terms should never have been handed down to begin with.

The Los Angeles City Council took action Wednesday to ban bullhooks used by elephant trainers in traveling circuses, becoming the first U.S. metropolis to outlaw a tool that critics say inflicts pain. Voting unanimously, the council asked the city attorney's office to prepare an ordinance outlawing the use of the bullhook, a sharp-tipped tool used to train and keep elephants under control. Baseball bats, ax handles, pitchforks and other implements used on the pachyderms would also be banned.
