ATHLETE IMPALED -- A member of the Brigham Young University men's volleyball team was impaled on a hurdle while he was practicing jumping a series of hurdles on Tuesday around 5 p.m. The man's foot hit a hurdle and knocked the center bar off its legs.

The man then landed on the legs of the hurdle, impaling himself in the groin. The 21-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery.

PEDESTRIAN HIT -- A female BYU student was hit by a car in Lindon around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. The woman, who was wearing all black clothes, tried to cross State Street near 100 North and was hit by a car and thrown into the air. The woman then hit the ground and slide into another car waiting in the turn lane. The woman was taken to Timpanogos Hospital and was believed to have been taken to a Salt Lake City hospital by medical helicopter from there. The woman was breathing but not responsive at the time of the accident. She was listed as being in serious condition.

FELONY WARRANT SERVED -- While patrolling in Orem around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday in the area of 800 W. 1200 North, Orem police officer Alan Warenski spotted a man sitting alone in a car near a gas station. A computer check of the car's license plates showed it was not currently insured and the registration had been revoked by the state of Utah. Further checking showed a $5,000 felony warrant of arrest issued in the name of the registered owner. Matthew R. Metrailer, 27, of Salt Lake City, was arrested and booked into the Utah County jail on a forgery warrant and his car was impounded.

DRUG ARREST -- An 18-year-old Provo man called the police around 2 a.m. Tuesday morning saying he'd locked his keys in his car at the Denny's restaurant in Orem, and was hoping an officer could unlock it for him. Orem officer David Call took the report and agreed to open the door. As the officer shone his flashlight on the lock he was working on, he spotted a marijuana pipe laying on the floor inside the car. Once the car was unlocked, Call picked up the pipe and asked the man about it. The man said it must have been left there by a friend. Call then looked through the car and found a small plastic bag of marijuana underneath the front passenger seat. The man said the drugs did not belong to him. It was also determined that the man had two warrants out for his arrest. He was booked into the Orem holding facility.

PRELIMINARY HEARING SCHEDULED -- A preliminary hearing and a bail hearing for an Orem man police say raped a woman he met on an LDS singles Internet site was scheduled Tuesday in 4th District Court for Oct. 12. Sean A. Register, 33, has been charged with felony aggravated sexual assault. A 19-year-old Pleasant Grove woman reported to police earlier this month that she was raped, telling investigators she met the man on the Internet. She said she corresponded with him online for a couple of weeks before meeting him at a parking lot near 400 North and State Street in Orem, police said. Register is being held in the Utah County Jail on $100,000 cash-only bail.
