A Santa Cruz man accused of driving while high on meth didn't do himself any favors by posing for this mug shot.

Abraham Kelly, 40, was arrested by Santa Cruz police following a "low-speed pursuit" through the west of Santa Cruz. Cops had been flagged down by several people reporting a green minivan driving erratically and purportedly targeting pedestrians intentionally just for the sheer joy of it.

Kelly's flight was hampered by a battalion of officers on the streets working the Amgen Tour of California cycling race. He was eventually cornered at a gas station, and arrested with an unusual cargo in his van:

  • Alleged methamphetamine;

  • A pair of "realistic looking BB guns";

  • "Several masks and wigs."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
