Yesterday July 20, 2020, 21 months after Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees Killed 36 year old Chinedu V. Okobi on El Camino Real in Millbrae/San Bruno The Supervisors discussed in Closed Session the progress of the two Civil Lawsuits that the relatives have brought against San Mateo County and a long list of Employees who were involved in the Misinformation aka Lying to the Residents of SMC about what actually occurred on October 3, 2018.
This happens every time Law Enforcement in San Mateo County kills a man or woman. The San Mateo County Media, San Mateo County Counsel, and San Mateo County Supervisors join in the character assassination of the DECEASED.
In Chinedu’s case everyone knows by now that the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has No Plan in place on how to make a Pedestrian Stop. Thats right Chinedu Okobi was simply walking down the sidewalk while Black when Sheriff Deputy Joshua Wang spotted him while he was traveling northbound in his patrol car. He activated his lights which activated his dashboard video camera which shows him making a U-turn.
Within 8 minutes Chinedu was Tased 7 times, struck with extended baton, Dogpiled by SIX SMC Employees and sprayed with O.C. spray in the face at close range while being handcuffed where he died. From that moment on San Mateo County started to promote the false story of “He was breathing and had a pulse when the Sheriff’s Office Employees turn him over to the AMR people.”
Nothing could be further from the Truth.
There is NO EVIDENCE that any of the Six Employees checked Chinedu Okobi’s pulse or provided ANY Life Saving measures after he was handcuffed and approximately 9:30 minutes passed before ARM people touched him.
How much Taxpayer Money has SMC Supervisors approved for this legal action? How much have they spent to date?
Daly City Council and City Manager Shawnna Maltbie What are YOU doing? Roger Allen Homicide by DCPD.
Thank You Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos for finally not Killing a man in San Carlos the other day. What brought your deputies to him in the first place? It seems like he knew his rights and your deputies finally did the right thing and left him alone. It’s a shame you chose not to do that before now.
Yanira Serrano Garcia R.I.P. June 3, 2014 would be alive today if you had a plan.
Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. October 3, 2018 would be alive today if you had a plan.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. May 5, 2020 would be alive today if you had a plan.
NEWS RELEASE Incident Date and Time: April 30, 2021 @ 2:26 pm
Location: 500 block of Quarry Road, San Carlos Summary: Deputies Added ECIT Resources and Training has Positive Outcome in
Disengagement of Person in Crisis During Welfare Check.
On Friday, April 30, 2021, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 500 block of Quarry Road in San Carlos to conduct a welfare check on an individual who was reported as possibly experiencing a mental health crisis. While enroute, deputies learned the subject was also in possession of a knife. Deputies staged a safe distance away and made phone contact with several parties at the scene, including the individual’s social worker.
Deputies learned the individual did not make any threats, commit any crimes, and no one was being held against their will. The individual had no interest in speaking with his social worker in person or with deputies on the phone. Approximately one hour after arriving on scene, deputies determined it was in everyone’s best interest that they disengage and leave the scene without forcing contact with the individual. Deputies followed-up with the individuals social worker the following day and learned the individual had stabilized and was no longer experiencing a mental health crisis.
This response highlights the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office’s Enhanced Crisis Intervention Training program (ECIT) and how our crisis response has aligned with recent law changes (California AB-392) as well as community expectations. Unless there is imminent danger or threats to others, deputies will conduct pre-assessments, gather as much information as possible, and form a plan for de-escalation prior to attempting contact with individual in crisis.
We understand the mere presence of uniformed deputies can escalate situations, and we will utilize time and distance whenever possible to assess the best course of action for each situation. In cases like this, by modifying our response and not making immediate contact to check the welfare of an individual in crisis, we maintain the option to disengage, which in some cases, provides the individual the opportunity to self-de-escalate.
In many cases where mental illness is involved, crisis communication and verbal de-escalation can prove to be challenging because their disability may affect their ability to understand or comply with commands from deputies. For this reason, disengagement in these cases is sometimes the best de- escalation option. Deputies can then refer the case to the Sheriff’s Office Psychiatric Emergency Response Team, who will then form a plan to contact the subject at a later time if appropriate, to assess for resources.

Roger Allen was shot and killed in Daly City on April 7, 2021, Four Unidentified Daly City Police Officers were involved.
Daly City Police Chief Patrick Hensley has chosen to Not Identify his 4 Police Officers. Why?
Daly City Manager Shawanna Maltbie supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Assistant Manager Stephen Stolte, supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Day City Mayor Juslyn Manalo supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Vice Mayor Glenn R. Sylvester supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Raymond A. Buenaventura supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Pamela DiGiovanni supports her Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
Daly City Council Member Rod Daus-Magbual supports his Police Chief in Not Identifying the Involved Officers. Why?
It’s been 16 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen, America is demanding change in Policing, Colin Kaepernick risked his career to stop Police Officers from killing Black and Brown people and abusing their authority. Yesterday Columbus Ohio Police released Body Worn Camera Video and the Identity of the Involved Officer within HOURS of a shooting death of a 16 year old Black girl.
Why are Daly City’s entire Elected and hired Staff on a different page then the rest of America? They can’t be racists can they? No of course not they signed and supported the Black Lives Resolution less then a year ago. If they are not racists what could it possibly be?
Could it be as simple as “Those Who Matter.”
I spoke to the Supervisors of San Mateo County April 20, 2021 asking them to make a Public Statement calling for the release of the names of the 4 Involved Daly City Police Officers. Supervisors David Canepa and Warren Slocum sponsored the County’s Black Lives Matter Resolution below. You will notice the Supervisors don’t mention Chinedu V. Okobi who I say is San Mateo County’s George Floyd Homicide by six Sheriff Employees. Why?
I would have expected the “Showboater” Supervisor David Canepa to have made a PUBLIC Statement on this obvious topic 16 days ago, he has remained silent.
· At a Special Meeting this Wed., July 22, 5pm, the Daly City Council will consider potential adoption of a Resolution in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and to reaffirm the City’s commitment to racial equity. Register to join the zoom meeting at http://bit.ly/specialmeetingjuly22…
Black Lives Matter Resolution
Posted by kchaiken on Jun 24th 2020
There are moments in history that we look back on as breaking points for social change. I believe that, at this moment, we are facing one of these breaking points. Our nation is in collective anguish at the murder of George Floyd and the countless other Black persons who have been the victims of police violence.
San Mateo County is not exempt from this anguish nor are we exempt from responsibility, but we have the power right now to make a change. We have heard from our community and from protestors across the nation that enough is enough. We need to take concrete steps to address this injustice. That is why I proposed and voted in favor of the San Mateo County Black Lives Matter Resolution.
Although this resolution does not yet outline any specifics, it is a commitment that will serve as the foundation for a whole new set of anti-racist policies and a re-evaluation of our current policies to root out injustice, biases, and systemic racism. These policies will not just serve to benefit members of our Black community, but all people of color, and by extension our entire County.
This resolution is also a key component of our overall work to promote equity in San Mateo County. I want to make it abundantly clear that the County of San Mateo cares deeply about creating an equitable and just community for all.But, it is not possible to have equity for all, until Black Lives Matter.
Hay momentos en la historia que consideramos puntos de quiebre para el cambio social. Creo que, en este momento, nos enfrentamos a uno de estos puntos de quiebre. Nuestra nación está en angustia colectiva por el asesinato de George Floyd y las innumerables personas Afroamericanas que han sido víctimas de la violencia policial.
El Condado de San Mateo no está exento de esta angustia ni estamos exentos de la responsabilidad, pero tenemos el poder en este momento para hacer un cambio. Hemos escuchado de nuestra comunidad y de manifestantes en todo el país que ya es suficiente. Necesitamos tomar medidas concretas para abordar esta injusticia. Es por eso por lo que propuse y voté a favor de la Resolución de Asuntos de Vidas Negras del Condado de San Mateo.
Aunque esta resolución aún no describe un plan detallado, es un compromiso que servirá como base para un conjunto completamente nuevo de políticas antirracistas y una reevaluación de nuestras políticas actuales para erradicar la injusticia, los prejuicios y el racismo sistémico. Estas políticas no solo servirán para beneficiar a los miembros de nuestra comunidad Afroamericana, sino a todas las personas de color y, por extensión, a todo nuestro condado.
Esta resolución también es un componente clave de nuestro trabajo general para promover la equidad en el Condado de San Mateo. Quiero dejar en claro que el Condado de San Mateo se preocupa profundamente por crear una comunidad equitativa y justa para todos. Pero, no es posible tener equidad para todos, hasta que “Black Lives Matter”.

It’s been 14 days since the Homicide of Roger Allen who was shot and killed in a disabled parked truck on a residential street in your City of Daly City. You have refused to name the four Daly City Police Officers who were on the scene. You have refused to tell your Police Chief Patrick Hensley to provide the names of the Officers involved, Why?
This is not Transparency.
Yesterday x Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was found Guilty of all three charges including murder of George Floyd.
Your behavior proves that San Mateo County is NOT Minneapolis. Think about the Black Lives Matter Resolution you signed.
October 3, 2018 San Mateo County’s own George Floyd was Chinedu V. Okobi he was killed by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees on El Camino Real in Millbrae. Within hours Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos issued a partial list of those involved, he left out one of the most important person the CSO who sprayed O.C. in Chinedu okobi’s face after he had been tased 7 times, struck with extended baton and dog piled by the group.
It says Below is a list of names of San Mateo County Sheriff Office personnel who were involved in the critical incident. That is not true. CSO Joseph Gonzales is not named.
Yesterday in Columbus Ohio, a 16 year old girl was shot and killed by a Police Officer responding to 2 911 calls. The Interim Police Chief has already released the name of the Officer who shot and killed the teenager, He has also released the Body Worn Camera Videos. Congratulations to Columbus Ohio.
It’s been 14 days Daly City Elected Officials.
Release the names of the 4 Daly City Police Officers involved in the Homicide of Roger Allen today.
Daly City Elected Officials, You are responsible for your Police Chief’s behavior.
It’s been 13 days since Roger Allen was killed by somebody that was employed by the City of Daly City. This unnamed person is supposedly employed by the Daly City Police Department. Until that person and others are identified the public is left to guess and wonder.
What was the plan? This killing of a Black man sitting in the passenger seat of a disabled truck (Flat Tire) and now dead is very similar to several Deaths by San Mateo County Law Enforcement.
Errol Chang R.I.P. What was the plan other than to kill him? He was inside a tiny house by himself surrounded by Swat TEAM from Daly City.
Yanira Serrana-Garcia R.I.P. What was the plan? Yanira was shot and killed by a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy within 20 seconds of him exiting his vehicle, he passed his partner and went on his own with No Plan.
Chinedu V. Okobi R.I.P. What was the plan? A Moorehouse Graduate, a Father, a man who committed No Crime, other than walking on the sidewalk in Millbrae while Black. The News Release issued by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry Blankswade had so many lies in it and Omissions. For now I will just say this Chinedu V. Okobi is San Mateo County’s George Floyd. Six Sheriff Employees on top of Chinedu after tasing him SEVEN times striking him with an extended baton, spraying O.C. in his face at close range right before he was handcuffed and stopped breathing. He was sat up on El Camino Real with deputies bracing his back so his head would be slumped forward to assure he would never breath again. No Medical aide was provided by any of the Six Sheriff Employees for the next 9 minutes. No matter what they claim or the edited video with the false captions.
Sandra Lee Harmon R.I.P. What was the plan? After searching for her for more than 20 minutes a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Dominguez goes on his own, doesn’t report where he is and claims he did not turn on his Body Worn Camera 14 shots were fired at Sandra three stuck her back they were all fatal shots. Three shell casings were moved at the crime scene. The San Mateo County Sheriff Office provided a video 5 months later starring Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, He promotes the False story of a Shootout started by Sandra, He doesn’t mention that she was shot while she was unarmed with her hands above her head. He doesn’t mention the 3 shell casings being moved at the crime scene. He doesn’t mention the 2 bullet holes found in a building by a citizen in a location that proves the Sheriff’s Story is a lie. San Mateo County Counsel Attorney David Silberman is responsible for refusing to make the AXON Log Records public. They will prove in a matter of minutes if the Government’s story of the Body Worn Camera was turned off. Why wouldn’t David Silberman want the truth to be made public. The AXON Log Records are paid for by the public.
Now it’s Daly City’s turn for the Elected Officials and Staff to do what they claim they are committed to provide Transparency. What was the Police Department’s plan for FOUR Officers to to be involved in a disabled vehicle in the middle of the afternoon in a residential neighborhood. The vehicle had 3 occupants, Was there a 911 call? The PD’s statement says the incident started at 1:55 PM. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told me that Roger Allen was transported by ambulance from the crime scene at 2:11 PM. That is 16 minutes total time involved. That might just be an all time record for San Mateo County.
The Government’s Story that every Daly City Elected Official and Staff supports is one of the unnamed four Police Officers reached into the vehicle and wrestled with decedent and a fake gun. They don’t describe it as a BB gun they call it a fake gun.
What was the Plan? Does Daly City Police Department train their Police Officers to reach into a vehicle with occupants and wrestle with one who allegedly is holding a GUN?
There is a lot of talk about Law Enforcement Reform around America right now I suggest we add Elected Officials and Staff Reform. #ElectedOfficialsReform
As the sheriff of San Mateo County, I am dedicated to protecting public safety and the privacy of our residents. In response to a recent opinion article on automated license plate reader (ALPR) technology, I wanted to provide our county’s residents with the facts about the technology and how the data is used, shared and retained by law enforcement.California law enforcement agencies are required to have and post ALPR usage and privacy policies to ensure that the collection, use, maintenance, sharing and dissemination of the information is consistent with respect for individuals’ privacy and civil liberties.Law enforcement agencies use ALPR technology to automate manual processes that help identify stolen vehicles, vehicles used by wanted suspects, vehicles used by registered sex offenders, locating missing persons and, more importantly, to investigate criminal activity more efficiently. ALPR technology takes photos of license plates in public view and runs the scanned images through a list of plates sought by law enforcement. The system collects the photo of the vehicle, license plate number and the location data. The system does not collect personal identifying information, such as birth dates, names or criminal history. My office’s ALPR data is retained for a maximum of one year unless the information is from an ALPR that has been deployed within an area wherein the local government has requested a shorter retention period.Our data is not shared with unvetted third-party organizations. Only law enforcement personnel with a need and right to know the information may have access to the data. On the topic of ALPR data sharing and immigration enforcement, we do not share any ALPR data with “ICE to track undocumented immigrants, who have committed no offense other than trying to make a life for themselves in California without documentation,” as stated in the guest perspective “Why license plate privacy matters” authored by state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, in the April 7 edition of the Daily Journal. ALPR databases in California may not be accessed for the sole purpose of immigration enforcement as required by the California Values Act. Misuse of data by law enforcement personnel may be cause for administrative, civil and criminal penalties. Currently, Senate Bill 210 seeks to limit the retention of ALPR records to 24 hours. This would not improve privacy, but it would limit our ability to investigate violent crimes, serial criminal activity and any other crime that takes more than 24 hours to identify suspects, locate witnesses and locate victims. If the bill were passed into law, it would reduce or eliminate our ability to solve some of our most serious criminal offenses. In one example of the use of ALPR data, a suspect in Daly City exposed himself as he attempted to grab a 12-year-old female victim, who was fortunately able to escape the assault. The victim provided Daly City Police Department with a description of the suspect and his vehicle. After reviewing thousands of ALPR images, they found a match. The system was then used to locate the vehicle in San Francisco. The suspect was ultimately arrested in San Francisco for the assault on the child and for being in violation his sex offender registration. Under SB 210, the evidence that led to the identification and arrest of the suspect would have been destroyed before investigators had the opportunity to review the images.In another example, a robbery occurred at a shopping center in the city of San Mateo and witnesses provided San Mateo Police Department with the suspects’ license plate number. The car was registered in Madera, California. Historical ALPR records provided information that the vehicle had been parked multiple times in Redwood City at the same location. Redwood City police responded to the vehicle’s historical parking location and found the car with the suspects inside. San Mateo police transported the victim to the location in Redwood City, where the suspects were positively identified, and the stolen property was recovered. Historical ALPR data quickly located suspects that had no fear of harming the public and brought them to justice. Under SB 210, the historical ALPR data would have been destroyed and law enforcement would have been looking for suspects 150 miles away.I am deeply committed to public safety and the protection of privacy. I want the public to know that historical ALPR data helps us to focus our limited resources to solve crimes and save lives. I also wanted to clear up any misunderstanding regarding how we use this invaluable law enforcement tool in our community, while protecting privacy. Please visit our website to learn more about our ALPR policy and how we serve our community with pride, commitment, integrity, compassion and innovation.Carlos Bolanos is the San Mateo County sheriff.
Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’ Opinion Piece above was sent to the San Mateo Daily Journal he chose not to publish it on the Sherif’s Office Website.
Some Residents of San Mateo County know that Carlos G. Bolanos was illegally appointed to the position of Sheriff on July 12, 2016 by the Supervisors of San Mateo County. It was not on the Agenda , Supervisor Don Horsley who was asked to recuse himself from that issue because his son is employed by the Sheriff’s Office lead the appointment through.
It’s telling that Sheriff Bolanos uses a minor female sexual assault victim as an example of why ALPR are great.
In one example of the use of ALPR data, a suspect in Daly City exposed himself as he attempted to grab a 12-year-old female victim, who was fortunately able to escape the assault. When on April 21, 2007 Carlos Bolanos was Detained in Las Vegas during the FBI Sting “Operation Dollhouse” He was caught inside the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street where a minor female was the victim of Human Trafficking of Sex Slaves.
Last night around 10:30 PM April 6, 2021 the CHP made a traffic stop in the Southbound lanes of Highway 101 just south of Millbrae Ave. The deceased exited his vehicle and before could be arrested and placed in the CHP vehicle he ran across the 4 southbound lanes and crossed over the divide and was struck and killed by the San Mateo County Sheriff SUV driven by Sgt. Andy Ward who was traveling northbound 101 in the fast lane.
The deceased was a 30 something year old male not identified yet.
It’s not clear yet wether he was handcuffed when he ran?
A reasonable person in San Mateo County would know by now not to believe anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or his Public Information Officers publish or provide to the public.
The News Releases dated October 3, 2018 involving the Homicide by Deputies of Chinedu V. Okobi is just one example.
The Recent Homicide by Deputies of Sandra Lee Harmon May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay is another.
Now we have a News release issued December 4, 2020 by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office about Barbara Bonilla being arrested on December 4, 2020. On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000. That is a Baldface Lie. If that was a TRUE statement there would be a Booking Photo dated December 4, 2020. Its that simple.
You’ll notice there is No Booking Photo provided by the Sheriff’s Office, Why? Did any of the other print media request the Booking Photo of Barbara Bonilla? I have.
From the News Release: “SAL is a non-profit organization affiliated with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.” That is an understatement, Sheriff Activities League (SAL) is a Division of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
From the News Release: “The investigation determined that approximately $25,000 was missing.“
Did the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) Investigate the Sheriff Activities League Executive Director and others for 10 months for approximately $25,000 of MISSING money. The Investigation was for Embezzlement and Laundering not Missing money. Why did the Investigation take 10 months if it was only $25,000?
I would like to see what the DOJ says the total amount is, not what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says.
Why was Barbara Bonilla not arrested on April 2, 2020 as the DOJ expected?
I can’t think of a more Important Story to write about on this day. Sure there are many other subjects like who is going to be the President of the United States of America. Let me tell you why I choose to write about former Deputy Juan P. Lopez on this day.
For me there is no more Important subject in San Mateo County than Corruption, and Abuse of Authority and Office.
I was on the phone with Juan Lopez when he was Arrested with guns to his head Six Years ago. That’s right I said Six Years ago.
Zain Jaffer was Arrested for Attempted Murder and 6 Felonies. His Criminal case went through the San Mateo County Justice System in less than 9 months, and that included the Preliminary Hearing where all charges were approved by the Evidence and Testimony presented in Court. The Attempted Murder Charge was never charged by the District Attorney’s Office for some reason. Arrested October 15, 2017 DISMISSED July 2,2018.
I was hoping to hear from Zain Jaffer by now to share with him some cases of abuse by the District Attorney’s Office, Wrongfully Charged, Over Charged etc. As he claimed he was interested in helping now that he knew how it felt to be Wrongfully Charged. Per his prepared statement made July 2, 2018. Matthews Craves, Vincent Valencia, and of course Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez are just a few of the many cases I can think of.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Michael Otte who worked in Half Moon Bay Patrol Committed Perjury in Judge Lisa Novak’s Courtroom, He was on the Witness Stand under oath and he lied about videoing with his cellphone the arrest of a female Half Moon Bay Resident. The Judge, Sheriff Office, District Attorney’s Office, and David Silberman of the San Mateo Counsel were and still are aware of the PERJURY. Sergeant Michael Otte was never charged as a matter of fact Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos not only allowed him to retire he gave him a retirement send off.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino Arrested by Redwood City Police Department for DUI. RWCPD has two Daily Activity Log records. His arrest was not made public. I was the first to report it.
San Mateo County Sheriff Lt. Kristina Bell 911 Domestic Violence Call to her residence by her partner, Redwood City Police at her home for hours. No ARREST made. Violation of San Mateo County Domestic Violence Policy. This response by RWCPD was not made public by the Police Department. I was the first to report it.
San Mateo County Sheriff Employee Barbara Bonilla who was the Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League was escorted out of her office on Feb. 10, 2020, She has resigned from the Sheriff’s Office which is a Big Deal, She has been removed from the State PAL and Federal PAL Boards. The Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Justice have and are Investigating her for Embezzlement and Laundering of SAL Funds. She has not been charged with any crime yet. That’s 10 months of a “Those Who Matter” person not being charged by the DOJ. That is longer than the Zain Jaffer case from Arrest to DISSMISSAL. I was the first to report it.
The Department of Justice has received a letter from the City of Half Moon Bay requesting an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sandra L. Harmon Homicide by Sheriff Deputies on May 5, 2020. This is a Historical Request by a City Council and it is Very Healthy to question Authority especially when so many False statements by Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe were made to the Public.
San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Jason Peardon recently received a Distinguished Medal from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos. I have publicly stated and written about Sergeant Jason Peardon being a Brady Officer. The City of Belmont has finally provided the Court with the documents that Juan Lopez’s attorney had to sue them to provide. He will be on the Witness stand in the Juan P. Lopez Criminal Trial hopefully going before a JURY soon.
Some of you know I have been recommending an AUDIT of the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Coroner’s Office, Private Defender Program etc. Audits are the easiest way to assure honesty in the performance of these offices San Mateo County.
San Mateo County has no Print Media interested in providing this information.
Please follow the Deputy Sheriff Juan P. Lopez case. November 16, 2020 set for Jury Trial, I’ll update. Remember if they can do this to a Sheriff Deputy they can do this to YOU.
I first reported that Redwood City Police Officers Arrested San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Louis Aquino for DUI right after he left the Deputy Sheriff Association DSA Bar and crashed a Jeep into a tree.
