Katherine Lambeth, 50, of Cloverhill Drive allowed a man named "G" to borrow her 1980 Oldsmobile, Officer Shawn Haney reported. In exchange, she received from him $50 worth of crack cocaine and a promise to return the car by 5 p.m. last Saturday. When he didn't return the car as promised, she reported her car missing Monday. The car is valued at $1,500.
In April 1999 Houston authorities charged basketball star Scottie Pippen with drunk driving. Reports state that police witnessed the six-time NBA champion pass cars stopped at a red light using an oncoming lane. Then-Rockets player Pippen failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a Breathalyzer, but prosecutors subsequently dismissed the misdemeanor charge.
