Miracle Mile Night cancelled due to budget constraints

STOCKTON - In a statement released Sunday night, the producers of the Miracle Mile Night Street Festival announced this year's event will not happen.

"It is with a heavy heart and mind that we inform you due to the economic constraints of organizing such a large free event, we were unable to secure the funds to ensure that the quality would not be diminished by the lack of sponsors," said Greg Bahr on behalf of the event's organizers.

Panhandling discouraged in Stockton

STOCKTON, CA - Business groups and Stockton's leading homeless organization are encouraging people to refrain from helping out the growing number of panhandlers.

It's a problem that's becoming worse, some say.

"We see them in greater numbers and they're more aggressive.  They become verbally abusive if you don't give them spare change," said Tim Kerr with the Downtown Stockton Alliance.

Kerr's group is about to post painted parking meterheads throughout downtown to collect money for groups that assist the homeless.  He and Edward Figueroa of St. Mary's Interfaith Community Services both said helping panhandlers doesn't really help at all.

"I'd rather make sure my donation goes to an organization that makes an impact and a difference in a persons life," said Kerr.

VIDEO: Man dragged by car in Stockton survives

STOCKTON, CA - Just before 11 Friday morning, a man was spotted clinging to a car being driven quickly, westbound,  on Washington Street.  A few seconds of that incident was captured by a News10 camera.

Photographer Mark Pepper saw the car coming his direction while preparing for a live shot in News10 Midday.

The footage shows a man clinging to the open window frame on the passenger side.  His feet were skimming along the street as the car sped by at about 35 miles per hour.  Just before the vehicle went out of view, the man appeared to be successfully climbing in.

Pepper then located the car and the men involved about a mile away.  Police were on the scene as well after a witness called them to report the Hollywood stunt-like event.

Officers said it appeared the man being dragged was convinced a friend's stolen purse was inside the car.  That's why he was trying to stay with the vehicle.
