The Lake Forest City Council has voted to repeal an ordinance banning registered sex offenders from parks, saying the city can't afford the potential legal liability of the controversial law, according to the L.A. Times . In doing so, Lake Forest becomes the first Orange County city to reject the law, which Orange County prosecutors have lobbied local governments to adopt. The repeal requires a second vote by the council, which is scheduled for Dec. 18. About half of Orange County's 34 cities have adopted the law, which bars registered sex offenders from parks and beaches.

John Yun was driving down Slater Avenue on Saturday night with his headlights off. When a Huntington Beach officer saw him, he flashed his lights to alert him. And that's when things took an unexpected turn, said Lt. Russell Reinhart. Instead of turning his headlights on, Yun, 36, made a quick turn into a residential area. The officer made a u-turn and followed Yun, but when he found the car, it was empty, Reinhart said. Residents told the officer they saw someone running through backyards.
