Investigators later learned that Leconte is an agent with the United States Marshals Service.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Five people were rescued from a pleasure boat that took on water and lost power about 17 miles off the coast of San Diego.

NAPA, Calif. (AP) - A significant aftershock from last weekend's magnitude-6.0 earthquake has rattled Northern California's wine country. The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-3.2 tremor struck 5 miles south of the city of Napa just before 2 a.m. Sunday. Thomas Brocher, director of USGS' Earthquake Science Center, says it wasn't the strongest aftershock to rumble the region since the main quake a week ago caused as much as $1 billion in damage and multiple injuries. A magnitude-3.9 aftershock centered 8 miles south of Napa hit early Tuesday morning.

McDonald was jailed on felony domestic violence charges. Santa Clara County sheriff's Sgt. Kurt Stenderup says McDonald was released after posting bail.
