Another 'Shooting'
When three Interstate 80 commuters reported that they had been in the crosshairs of a sniper's rifle Tuesday morning in Solano County, authorities closed the freeway, summoned a SWAT team and had media helicopters zero in on the suspect's license plate.

Law officers arrested Rickey Roy Badgley, 51, almost two hours later after a standoff, only to discover he was targeting motorists with a video camera fitted with a high-powered lens, not a rifle fitted with a high-powered scope. They released him late Tuesday afternoon.
