There's video of the incident from a fellow officer's dashcam. http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2015/02/madison_police_fire_and_arrest.html
Madison police officer Eric Parker today turned himself in to face assault charges, following the severe injuries to an Indian citizen who was walking down the street outside his son's new home.

Resurrection begins. UAB football, rifle and bowling, to return, Dr. Ray Watts announces. A community rallies to make things happen. Will take a lot of money, but no additional money from UAB. Timelines will have to be met. New practice field and fieldhouse will be needed, but the school can't borrow. "Let there be no doubt. Our vision for UAB and what we can accomplish is bolder than ever," Watts said. "... There is a lot of work to be done. Working together, we are up to the task."
The key people behind restoring UAB football.

A great location, tremendous service from the staff, a delightful and gluten-free breakfast. Very near the Trevi Fountain and easy walking distance to most others. Wine on the rooftop? Yes, please. Totally recommend, especiallly the easy and informed conversation from the 24/7 staff.
