Lodi resident Calvin Joseph Fugate, 37, died in an accident while he was riding his motorcycle at 5:17 a.m. Sunday.

Fugate was riding his Harley motorcyle southbound on Highway 99 when 26-year-old Trystan Patrick Blair lost control. Blair was driving 75 mph and went into the center divider guard rail. His car then came back into the driving lane and collided with Fugate's motorcycle.

Fugate was thrown from the vehicle and landed in the roadway. Three other vehicles also collided, but CHP officers are still investigating how they were involved in the accident.

Blair was booked on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and felony DUI causing injury to another.

Three juveniles arrested for shooting parked cars

Multiple shots were fired into parked vehicles near the intersection of Central Avenue and Walnut Street at 3:47 a.m. Sunday.

Lodi Police Officer Josh Redding was nearby on patrol and responded to the call, said Lodi Police Sgt. Bill Alexander.

Redding arrived and saw a large amount of gang graffiti recently added in the area. He also spotted four Hispanic juvenile males near Central, who ran upon seeing the officer, Alexander said.

Redding chased the juveniles, who were jumping fences in the area. Sledge, the officer's canine, caught one of the juveniles. Another was found on a roof of a nearby house, and a third juvenile was found behind a parked car.

All three juveniles had ammunition in their possession but did not have the firearm, Alexander said. The gun was located the next day by a neighbor who found it in their yard.

The three juveniles were booked into Peterson Juvenile Hall on a multitude of charges related to gang involvement, possession of a firearm, graffiti and shooting at an unoccupied vehicle.

People who have any information on the fourth suspect can call Crime Stoppers at 333-6771.

Police still looking for carjacking suspects

Two males carjacked a woman's van while she was warming it up in her driveway in the 900 block of South Central Avenue at 5:16 a.m. Sunday.

The car was found shortly after police arrived on scene within a half-mile of the victim's home.

She had the car turned on when she saw a young Hispanic male standing near the passenger side. She began to talk with him when she noticed another male in the driver's seat.

She walked toward the van and opened the door to confront the male in the car when the younger juvenile grabbed her and threw her to the ground.

Anyone with information on this crime should call Crime Stoppers at 333-6771.

    To the woman that let her car "warm up" there is no need to let a car warm up, it has been proven that a car`s engine will warm up faster when it is driven, especially if it is within city limits. Perhaps a slight warm up if the car is to be driven directly to Hwy`s 99 or I-5, but under no circumstances should the car be left running and unatended, if a slight warm up is needed, the driver should be in the car with the doors locked.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
