Police in Junction City are putting drivers on notice: They'll soon be enforcing a new ordinance that limits use of cellphones by motorists.
A south-central man is jailed after he allegedly chased people repossessing his car, then shot at the vehicle, forced it off the road and hit the man who was seizing the car.
Police say an employee of Xpress Recovery of Wichita repossessed the car from a home near Anthony Monday.

The driver suffered minor injuries.
The car’s owner was booked into the Harper County jail on suspicion of aggravated battery, aggravated assault and criminal discharge of a firearm. The juvenile was taken to a juvenile facility in Reno County.
