Deputy Known to Play It 'by-the-Book'
Ivory Webb, the former Iowa receiver who started in the 1982 Rose Bowl, is described by a former high school teammate as "one of the straightest guys I've ever known ... a good kid who listened to his dad." Webb, who has spent more than 10 years in the San Bernardino sheriff's department, is in the spotlight after shooting Air Force security officer Elio Carrion, who is listed in good condition. The incident was recorded by a witness and Webb's actions have been criticized by experts in the use of force by police. Webb's former teammates at Iowa were stunned by the news, and former coach Hayden Fry said he has "nothing but nice things to say about Ivory." (story is in comments section below). The man who recorded the shooting was paid $5,000 for the footage by KTLA, and he asked the station to donate the money to Carrion's wife. Link to video on right-hand side of page.
