AMERICAN FALLS — A man initially charged with four felonies received probation after pleading guilty to three misdemeanors.
Originally, 35-year-old Scott Andrew Alvey was charged with discharging a firearm into an inhabited building and three counts of injury to a child. But after reaching a plea agreement, he was sentenced to two years probation for misdemeanor charges of exhibition of a deadly weapon, resisting arrest and three counts of disturbing the peace, court records show.
Alvey was arrested in June after American Falls police responded to a call reporting gunshots inside a home. Upon arrival, officers heard loud bangs consistent with gunfire and took cover while demanding the people inside the home come out with their hands raised.
A woman and three children exited the home but an intoxicated Alvey refused, instead raising a shotgun toward the officers. Officers tased Alvey and took him into custody.
District Judge Todd Garbett suspended 90 days of a 100-day prison sentence, giving Alvey 10 days credit for time served. Additionally, Alvey was ordered to pay $1,512.50 in fees and fines.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Unified School District said they would distribute the opioid overdose treatment naloxone to all its schools.
News of the nation’s second-largest school district providing the medication comes after 15-year-old Melanie Ramos fatally overdosed in a restroom at Bernstein High School on Sept. 13 after taking a pill that probably contained fentanyl, the Associated Press reported.
“We have an urgent crisis on our hands,” district Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said in a statement. “Research shows that the availability of naloxone along with overdose education is effective at decreasing overdoses and death–and will save lives. We will do everything in our power to ensure that not another student in our community is a victim to the growing opioid epidemic. Keeping students safe and healthy remains our highest priority.”
In a press release, Carvalho said that the county public health department would provide the medication for free.
All high schools in the district will get the medication in the next two weeks, and then it’ll be distributed to other campuses in the coming weeks, Carvalho said.
Los Angeles Police told the Associated Press that in the last month, at least seven teenagers have overdosed after taking what officials believe were fentanyl-laced pills.
Carvalho added that the district would also implement an educational campaign that includes parent outreach and peer-to-peer counseling.
The district said staffers such as nurses will be or are already trained to administer the medication.
District officials said that training for school staff who aren’t trained yet would begin in early October.

A sheriff’s deputy in Western Kentucky shot a burglary suspect who attacked a woman and child with a hammer, then tried to assault the deputy too, state police said.
Daviess County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 9000 block of U.S. 60 West in Owensboro Friday morning about “a man with a hammer breaking into homes,” Kentucky State Police said in a news release.
Deputy Alex Cooms “was in the area when he observed a frantic woman and a juvenile running from a house,” state police said. “The woman told Cooms they escaped after being assaulted by a man with a hammer inside their home.”
When Cooms went inside the home, he “confronted Gregory A. Embry, 39, of Owensboro, who was armed with a hammer. Embry attempted to attack Cooms with the hammer when he discharged his service weapon striking Embry,” according to police.
Embry was in critical condition at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital Friday evening, state police said. Cooms, 31, of Owensboro, was not injured.
State police said they are investigating, and criminal charges are pending.
Bill Belichick perhaps has no love greater than his love for special teams players. This weekend, he goes up against quite possibly one of the best special teams players in NFL history.
Ravens kicker Justin Tucker has left very little doubt that he’s been the best kicker in the league since he entered it in 2012. Tucker’s been named a first-team All-Pro five times and second-team All-Pro twice in the first 10 seasons of his career. He also holds some key records, such as the record for the highest percentage of made kicks (91.1 percent) and the longest made kick (66 yards) in NFL history.
As the Patriots prepare to face the Ravens on Sunday, Belichick shared where Tucker’s place in NFL history is.
“He’s reset that position by probably a pretty decent amount,” Belichick said. “This isn’t like being 200th of a second under the world record. This guy’s really reset the bar. No miss kicks, accuracy is very good, distance, range.
“He really shortens the field. He makes the field about ten yards shorter than most everybody has it. Not just with his leg strength, but the fact of his accuracy and how good he is from long range as well. He’s a touchback guy, if they want to do that.”
When speaking of Tucker, Belichick briefly compared him to former Ravens kicker Matt Stover, a player Belichick coached during his time with the Browns. Stover made a pair of All-Pro teams during his 18 seasons with the Browns/Ravens franchise and holds a pair of NFL records, such as the most consecutive games with a field goal (38) and most points scored by a player in his 30s (1,113).
Belichick was surprised that the Ravens were able to find a kicker even better than Stover.
“Yeah, he and Stover have had tremendous careers and he’s come in and just kind of one upped it,” Belichick said. “Lot of good kicking there for a long time, between whenever Stover was, 1992, he didn’t kick for very long, but from 1993 on, so what’s that? Thirty years. Thirty years of having a really good kicker, two guys, that’s pretty good and counting. Tucker’s still got a year or two left.”
Even though Tucker drained a game-winning field goal at the buzzer in his first matchup against the Patriots in 2012, he hasn’t had the success he’s used to having when he faces New England. He’s made just 75 percent (6-of-8) of his kicks, which is his second-lowest field goal percentage against an AFC opponent, and has even missed an extra point in five career matchups against the Patriots.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan announces a new federal office of environmental justice at a ceremony Saturday in Warrenton, N.C. Associated Press
WARRENTON, N.C. — Forty years after a predominantly Black community in Warren County, North Carolina, rallied against hosting a hazardous waste landfill, President Biden’s top environment official visited what is widely considered the birthplace of the environmental justice movement Saturday to unveil a national office that will distribute $3 billion in block grants to underserved communities burdened by pollution.
Joined by civil rights leaders and participants from the 1982 protests, Michael Regan, the first Black administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, announced he is dedicating a new senior level of leadership to the environmental justice movement they ignited.
The Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights – comprised of more than 200 current staff members in 10 U.S. regions – will merge three existing EPA programs to oversee a portion of Democrats’ $60 billion investment in environmental justice initiatives created by the Inflation Reduction Act. The president will nominate an assistant administrator to lead the new office, pending Senate confirmation.
“In the past, many of our communities have had to compete for very small grants because EPA’s pot of money was extremely small,” Regan said in an interview. “We’re going from tens of thousands of dollars to developing and designing a program that will distribute billions. But we’re also going to be sure that this money goes to those who need it the most and those who’ve never had a seat at the table.”
Biden has championed environmental justice as a centerpiece of his climate agenda since his first week in office when he signed an executive order pledging 40 percent of the overall benefits from certain federal clean energy investments to disadvantaged communities overwhelmed by pollution.
Now, Regan said, this new office intertwines environmental justice with the central fabric of the EPA, equating it to other top offices like air, land and water, and cementing its principles in a way that will outlive the Biden administration.
North Carolina in 1978 designated Warren County, a small, Black farming community along the Virginia border, as a disposal site for truckloads of soil laced with highly carcinogenic chemical compounds that later contaminated the water supply.
As the first trucks rolled into town in 1982, hundreds of residents flooded the streets, blocking their path to the landfill. Though they were unable to shut down the operation after six weeks of nonviolent protests and more than 500 arrests, their efforts have been lauded by civil rights leaders as the impetus for a global uprising against environmental racism in minority communities.
