Arrest in theft of Porsche part from Walker crash
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say they've arrested an 18-year-old accused of stealing part of the Porsche that "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker was in when he was killed in a crash.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says Jameson Witty was arrested at his LA-area home. A statement from the agency Thursday says another suspect who is 25 years old is outside California and arranging to surrender.
The Sheriff's Department says the wreckage of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was being towed away after Saturday's fatal crash when someone got out of a car following the tow truck, grabbed a part and drove away.
Detectives say they found the Porsche's roof panel while searching a home in Canyon Country, a community north of Los Angeles.
It wasn't clear if Witty has an attorney, and no phone listings for family could be found.
LA sues Wells Fargo, Citigroup over foreclosures
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles city attorney is suing Wells Fargo and Citigroup, alleging the companies engaged in mortgage discrimination that led to a wave of foreclosures in minority communities.
The federal lawsuits filed Thursday are the latest fallout from the 2008 housing bubble collapse.
They claim Wells Fargo & Co. and Citigroup Inc. first refused to grant mortgages in minority neighborhoods - a practice known as redlining - then later targeted minority consumers for predatory loans.
The lawsuits claim that led to foreclosures that sent property values tumbling in black and Hispanic neighborhoods, costing the city hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes and forcing it to spend perhaps $1 billion to clean up and protect vacant properties.
Wells Fargo and Citigroup say they're committed to fair lending and call the suits baseless.
LA-Ontario airport lawsuit on hold for talks
ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) - A lawsuit over control of Southern California's Ontario International Airport has been put on hold to allow Los Angeles and Ontario time to try to settle.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports Superior Court Judge Gloria Connor Trask said Thursday that the two parties have agreed to talk until Jan. 31.
The suit filed by Ontario in June names as defendants Los Angeles, its airport commissioners and Los Angeles World Airports, which operates Ontario airport.
The lawsuit says Los Angeles has failed to properly market the midsize airport 50 miles to its east, which has lost nearly 50 percent of its passengers since 2007.
LA officials have argued that Ontario airport is one of several that has fallen victim to the recession and that efforts to lure back airlines have failed.
