Don’t mess with Jennifer Donnellan. The Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold associate was talking with a colleague outside an Oakland, Calif., courthouse when two teenage girls rode up on bicycles and snatched her purse. Before she knew what she was doing, Donnellan leapt to her feet, threw off her shoes and took off in hot pursuit. Wearing a red skirt suit and nylons, Donnellan said she ran about four blocks, thinking about the contents of her purse, including her cellphone, and the eventual trip she’d have to make to the Department of Motor Vehicles to renew her ID. Some cops noticed the commotion and arrested the girls. “If you’re going to pull a crime, maybe not pulling it at a courthouse is a good suggestion,” Donnellan said. Her Calvin Klein nylons had not a single tear or hole after all that. “People tell me that was the best part of the story,” she said. - The Recorder Spoil sports Sheriff Paul White has pulled the plug on the Web cam that had broadcast the doings inside the Anderson County, Tenn., jail for six years because some viewers were abusing the privilege. Some used the cameras to call female jailers on the telephone and taunt them at work. Others tracked inmate movements to coordinate deliveries of contraband. The Web cam was popular-it drew 1.2 million hits over the Thanksgiving weekend-but “now that people are using it for bad things, we have to weigh the odds,” White said. “The bad things that could happen are not worth the good things that happen out of it.”- Staff and wire reports
