Colorado city councilman resigns after alleged domestic violence

Hair samples, testimony getting attention from FBI

Criminal investigation shows, like the "CSI" series, have remained wildly popular over the past several prime time television seasons.

Broncos executives suspended after DUI arrests

How will wearable technology affect drug, other crime cases?

When someone is arrested for a drunk driving charge, they might think that their job won't be affected, or that the situation will disappear and not draw attention.

Federal government still unclear on Colorado marijuana law

It has been over half a year since Colorado legalized marijuana usage for recreational purposes.

Police followed a car last week and arrested the two people inside, who were later charged with burglary. Authorities say that the arrests were the result of an extensive investigation.
