    Life Term for East Texas Man Convicted of Shooting at Deputy
    Evan Cossette, who has pleaded not guilty to charges of unreasonable force and lying in a report, is trying to get the surveillance video of the incident disallowed from the trial.

    An East Texas man convicted of shooting at a sheriff's deputy and then fleeing to Arkansas has been sentenced to life in prison.

    Jurors in Smith County who convicted 33-year-old Ricardo Pineda of aggravated assault against a peace officer also decided Friday the Tyler man should be fined $10,000.

    Pineda was the target of a federal and county drug investigation when he fired a dozen rifle shots at a Smith County deputy during a March 2016 car chase. The deputy's car was disabled. Pineda later was arrested in Corning, Arkansas, about 400 miles (643.71 kilometers) to the northeast.

    Pineda had a federal conviction in 2000 for possession and distribution of methamphetamine.

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    Prosecutors told jurors to send a message that shooting at law enforcement officers is not acceptable.
