TBS Today, April 20

Former Berkeley Police Officer Corey Shedoudy intentionally ran into a car while on bike patrol in 2020 and his subsequent termination was justified, an independent arbitrator has found.

The city argued that Corey Shedoudy's shifting stories about the day of the crash were "illogical and destroy his credibility."

We've been asking the city for updates and records about Shedoudy's termination and have the news first.

Also published today: A first-person account from Nancy Bickel about being robbed in North Berkeley. She somehow managed to find a silver lining in the experience.
