    A Colorado Springs motorcycle officer has been injured in an accident while escorting Vice President Mike Pence's motorcade to the city's airport. Police Lt. Howard Black told The Gazette (http://bit.ly/2s3LwGj) the accident happened at 7:30 a.m. Saturday. Black didn't release the officer's name or details on the crash, but he said he was in serious condition. No other vehicles were involved, and Pence's motorcade continued to the airport. Pence said in a Tweet released by the police department that he'd spoken with the officer's wife and was 'so relieved his injuries are not life-threatening.' Pence was in Colorado Springs to mark the 40th anniversary of Focus on the Family. He also visited Schriever Air Force Base, home to the Air Force Space Command.

  • Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna says he is out of sorts mentally, feeling 'anxious' and 'weird.' And that is why he was unavailable to pitch Friday. 'I really don't know how to explain it. ... I feel like I'm lost a little bit right now,' he said before Saturday's game against Kansas City. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons did not use the 22-year-old reliever when the Royals scored four runs in the ninth off three relievers to win 5-4. Gibbons says Osuna was 'just not feeling well.' He did not elaborate. 'I feel great physically. It's just more mentally,' Osuna said through an interpreter. 'I feel a little bit anxious, a little bit weird. I feel like I'm not myself right now.' He says he has never experienced this sensation before during his career. Paddy Steinford, the Blue Jays' mental performance coach who travels with the team, has been working with Osuna to overcome his anxiety. 'This has nothing to do with me being on the field,' Osuna said. 'I feel great out there. It's just when I'm not on the field that I feel weird and a little bit lost. I wish I knew how to get out of this. We're working on it. We're trying to find ways to make me feel better. But, to be honest, I just don't know. Osuna has 19 saves this season and is the youngest player in major league history to record 75 saves. He was uncertain whether he could pitch Saturday. 'I'm going to try, but nothing is for sure,' he said. 'We'll see.
  • An off-duty black St. Louis police officer's race factored into him being mistakenly shot by a white officer who didn't recognize him during a shootout with black suspects this week, the wounded officer's lawyer contends. The 38-year-old black officer was off duty when he heard a commotion near his home and ran toward it with his service weapon to try to help his fellow officers, police said. St. Louis' interim police chief, Lawrence O'Toole, said the incident began when officers with an anti-crime task force followed a stolen car and were twice fired upon by its occupants. One suspect was shot in an ankle and was arrested, along with another teenager who tried to run from police, O'Toole said. A third suspect is being sought. When the off-duty officer who lived nearby heard the commotion and arrived at the scene to help, two on-duty officers ordered him to the ground but then recognized him and told him to stand up and walk toward them. As he was doing so, another officer arrived and shot the off-duty officer 'apparently not recognizing' him, police said. The police department hadn't disclosed the names of the officers as of Saturday. It described the black officer as an 11-year department veteran and said he was treated at a hospital and released. The officer who shot him is 36 years old and has been with the department more than eight years. The black officer's lawyer, Rufus J. Tate Jr., discussed the shooting with St. Louis Fox affiliate KTVI , but the officer isn't named in that report. Tate did not reply to several phone messages seeking comment left Saturday by The Associated Press. Tate told the station that his client identified himself to the on-duty officers at the scene and complied with their commands. He questioned the white officer's account, according to police, that he shot the off-duty officer because he feared for his safety. 'In the police report you have so far, there is no description of a threat he received. So we have a real problem with that. But this has been a national discussion for the past two years. There is this perception that a black man is automatically feared,' Tate said. It was in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson where a white officer shot an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, three years ago, setting off months of protests, some of which were violent. The officer, who later left the force, wasn't charged, which further strained relations between the area's black community and the police. But there have been several notable instances over the years in which an officer mistakenly shot a colleague. In 2009, 25-year-old New York City police Officer Omar J. Edwards, who was black, was shot and killed by a white officer on a Harlem street while in street clothes. He had just finished his shift, and had his service weapon out, chasing a man who had broken into his car, police said. Three plainclothes officers on routine patrol arrived at the scene and yelled for the two to stop, police said. One officer, Andrew Dunton, opened fire and hit Edwards three times as he turned toward them with his service weapon. It wasn't until medical workers were on scene that it was determined he was a police officer. A grand jury voted not to indict Dunton. A year earlier in the suburb of White Plains, New York, a black off-duty Mount Vernon police officer was killed by a Westchester County policeman while holding an assault suspect at gunpoint. And in Providence, Rhode Island, in 2000 an off-duty black police sergeant, Cornel Young Jr. was accidentally killed by two uniformed white colleagues while he was trying to break up a fight on a parking lot. Young — at the time the son of the department's highest-ranking black officer — was dressed in baggy jeans, an overcoat and a baseball cap, and he was carrying a gun.

  • Egypt's president has ratified a disputed 2016 agreement under which his country would transfer control of two Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia. News of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi's ratification of the maritime border demarcation agreement came in a Cabinet statement issued Saturday.  The ratification followed the June 14 approval of the agreement by parliament, despite court rulings to annul the transfer.   The government says the two islands have always been Saudi but were placed under Egypt's protection in the 1950's amid Arab-Israeli tension. Critics say the islands were transferred in exchange for billions of dollars of Saudi aid.  Authorities earlier this month arrested an estimated 120 people who voiced opposition to the agreement or demonstrated against it in street protests. Most have since been released.
  • A prominent independent newspaper in Bahrain earlier shut down by the government as part of a crackdown on dissent has laid off its staff. The daily Al-Wasat sent a statement Saturday to employees saying it had to let them go after the tiny island nation's rulers ordered it closed on June 4 . It marked the third time authorities have ordered it to stop publishing a print edition since the island's 2011 Arab Spring protests and comes just after officials briefly banned it in January from publishing online. The crackdown in Bahrain, home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, has seen activists arrested or forced into exile and political parties disbanded. Independent news gathering there has grown more difficult, with the government refusing to accredit two Associated Press journalists and others.
  • Retired football star Deion Sanders is partnering with the conservative Koch brothers to help fight poverty in Texas. The unlikely partnership, announced on Saturday, will raise $21 million over the next three years to fund anti-poverty programs in Dallas. Sanders joined Koch donors at a weekend conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to help raise money for the new venture, called Prime 5. He also defended the billionaire industrialist Charles Koch, often demonized by Democrats, as someone simply 'trying to make the world a better place.' 'I'm happy where I am and who I'm with because we share a lot of the same values and goals,' Sanders said when asked if he'd be willing to partner with organizations on the left. The Koch brothers have spent hundreds of millions of dollars in recent years to shape politics and policy, including leading outside efforts to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. They also support a sprawling network of privately funded education and anti-poverty programs that promote their vision of a smaller government. Specifically, the partnership announced Saturday would help fund Dallas-based organizations that address issues such as chronic joblessness, education failure, addiction, personal debt and family breakdowns, said Evan Feinberg, who leads the Koch-backed organization Stand Together. 'We don't think top-down solutions work for these problems,' Feinberg said. Sanders, meanwhile, dismissed questions about whether the Koch partnership would invite political controversy into his efforts to strengthen poor communities. 'I've been criticized since I was 16 years old. This ain't new to me,' said Sanders, nicknamed 'Primetime' during his professional baseball and football career. 'I've been booed simultaneously by 90,000 (people) that sung my name like a quartet. I could care less.
  • A hotel door has jammed up Martin Perez and the Texas Rangers. In the latest setback for a depleted Rangers rotation, Perez was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday after injuring the thumb on his non-pitching hand in an accident at the team hotel. Perez ripped off the finger nail and broke a bone at the tip of his right thumb when he caught it in the hinge of a door Thursday night in New York, the team said. The roster move was made retroactive to Friday, and infielder-outfielder Drew Robinson was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock before the Rangers played the Yankees. Perez is 4-6 with a 4.70 ERA in 15 starts this season. The left-hander joins fellow Texas starters Cole Hamels, Andrew Cashner and A.J. Griffin on the DL. Hamels (right oblique strain) is set to be activated Monday to start that night in Cleveland, so Yu Darvish could take Perez's next scheduled turn on regular rest Wednesday against the Indians. Darvish was removed after seven dominant innings Friday night because of tightness in his right triceps, but he said he left as a precaution and expected to be fine for his next outing. 'I think he'll most likely stay on turn,' manager Jeff Banister said Saturday morning. Perez had a white bandage on his right thumb and said it was painful. Trainers told the team it probably will be seven to 10 days before Perez is able to 'shove his hand into a glove and protect himself' on the mound, Banister said. Perez plans to come off the DL as soon as he's eligible. In the meantime, he'll still be able to throw and run, Banister said. 'In 10 days, let's go. No excuse,' Perez said. 'Better that it happened to this hand.' Standing at his locker, the pitcher joked that on the club's next road trip, he's going to need someone to open doors for him. Cashner (left oblique strain) threw 41 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday and said he felt good. He will be re-evaluated Sunday and is a candidate to start Thursday in Cleveland. Robinson was brought up for his third stint with the Rangers this season. He was batting .273 with 11 homers and 35 RBIs in 58 games at Round Rock. ___ More AP baseball coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

  • Responding to concerns about personal security for lawmakers after last week’s gun attack at a Congressional baseball practice, U.S. House leaders are moving to provide extra money to members for protection back home, as well as new funding to bolster the work of police and security officials on Capitol Hill. Under a plan approved by a House spending subcommittee on Friday, the Congress would provide an extra $7.5 million next year to the Capitol Police for an “increased security posture” around the Capitol, along with $5 million to the House Sergeant at Arms to help with security for lawmakers back in their districts. “We are taking a new fresh look at security,” said Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS), the Chairman of subcommittee that deals with funding for the Legislative Branch. Our FY18 Legislative Branch funding bill increases efficiency & transparency in Congress, enhances security for Members & our constituents. pic.twitter.com/FI36tF2XeH — Rep. Kevin Yoder (@RepKevinYoder) June 22, 2017 “The tragic events of June 14 weigh heavily on these deliberations,” said Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ), the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, which could vote on the extra money as early as this next week. Also being put into motion is a separate plan to funnel an extra $25,000 to each member of the House – about $11 million in all – to help them increase security back in their districts. “The scariest part for us is there used to be this impression by the public that we all had security everywhere we went,” said Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH). “Now, everyone knows that isn’t the case,” Ryan added, as he lent his support to the extra funding for security as well. The money in this budget bill would not take effect until the new fiscal year – which starts October 1 – so, House leaders are ready to okay extra money immediately for members worried about security back in their districts. Roll Call newspaper reported that could be approved in coming days by the House Administration Committee. Yoder said Congressional leaders are also waiting to see if money raised in campaign contributions for House elections could be put to use for security as well. “Pending an FEC (Federal Election Commission) decision, we’re also looking at whether campaign funds could be used to continue to support security upgrades at personal residences,” Yoder added.
