Teen Injured, Tried To Jump From Moving Patrol Car

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A teenage girl and a Stillwater County sheriff's deputy were injured when the girl tried to jump out of a patrol car on Interstate 90.
    
Officials say the girl had been sentenced in Stillwater County on Thursday morning for a drug violation and was being returned to a youth detention facility in Billings. Montana Highway Patrol Capt. Keith Edgell says the 16-year-old girl was handcuffed with the cuffs secured to a leather belly restraint, but she was able to get to the door handle.
    
Edgell says when she opened the door the deputy grabbed the leather restraint. That caused the deputy to lose control of the car, which hit the median divider. The girl fell onto the road. She was taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries.
    
The deputy was treated and released.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.
