    Just days before he was scheduled for trial for allegedly punching and kicking his wife, and shoving her into a television at their Redondo Beach home, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov pleaded no contest today to a domestic violence charge that will earn him 90 days in jail. The misdemeanor conviction means the Russian hockey player can remain in the United States, but federal officials ultimately would control his status in the country.

    Monday Jun 29 | via The Daily Breeze 

    Prosecutors have no evidence to suggest Slava Voynov's wife is trying to protect the Los Angeles Kings defenseman by refusing to testify at his upcoming domestic violence trial, and should not be allowed to make that claim before a jury, defense attorneys contend in a court affidavit. Marta Varlamova so far has indicated that she does not want to testify to keep from publicly exposing intimate details of their marriage, and prosecutors will merely distract jurors from their job by making up reasons for her lack of testimony, says the affidavit filed last week in Torrance Superior Court.

Dui arrest?
I was pulled over a night after drinking with some friends which I shouldn't had done. I was a minor at that point. I got pulled over and the officer asked me if I was drinking. They did some test afterward and issue me a citation ticket and a form that says I was drinking under age. They then asked me if someone was nearby to pick me up since I couldn't drive, and I said yes. Then when the person arrive, I was free to go. Does this count as a arrest and will it show in my record? I Wasn't taken down to the station and they didn't call my parents, but will this still count as a arrest? Another thing is that a mail was send after a few days to my house from the CHP saying that I was arrested. But I wasn't taken to custody and no picture or finger were taken. does still count as an arrest?
Is CHP California Highway Patrol? Do you have a court date?
