The Dallas Police Department confirmed to SF Weekly that Texas fugitive Ryan Caskey -- a man accused of falsifying a police and military background and arresting suspects alongside cops in Dallas and Arlington -- is not the same man as the former University of San Francisco and ROTC student accused of raping four undergraduates.

"Close -- but no," said a Dallas Police spokeswoman. In "close," she meant that both Ryan Caskeys are listed as being 21 or 22 years old, hailing from California, and having (or claiming to have) military backgrounds.

The San Francisco Caskey pleaded not guilty to four counts of rape of an unconscious person and four more counts of assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury. Meanwhile, the Texas Caskey is wanted for impersonating a public servant -- a felony punishable by up to a decade behind bars and a $10,000 fine.

  • 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.'"
