The Cars of ‘Breaking Bad’

Written by Mischa Arnosky


“Keys, scumbag. It’s the universal symbol for keys.”

Remember this? Mike Ehrmantraut says this to Walter White in the desert in the first episode of the first half … of the last season ofBreaking Bad. Mike had just left a makeshift hospital in Mexico (after feeding the chickens) and ran into Walt and Jesse. He ultimately ditched his Cadillac DTS to hop in Walt and Jesse’s white, sand-covered Dodge Charger.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen all of the episodes of best show that ever graced television (sorry, I’m one of those guys), you might want to stop reading.

And while I’m one of those insufferable supporters of AMC’s former flagship show, I’m also a car guy — and I’m thinking a lot of the writers of Breaking Bad were car guys/girls as well. Cars are big on the show.

I’m always excited when a TV show doesn’t cover a car’s badging with a piece

Argument led to fatal shooting between brothers

A dispute over Michael Jimenez’s loyalty during his brother’s recent incarceration led to Jimenez’s shooting death last month, a witness testified Wednesday.

Rahsohn Perry, 32, faces murder and gun charges in connection with the Nov. 8 shooting of his brother, Jimenez, 39. 54A District Court Judge Hugh Clarke Jr. determined at a preliminary hearing that there is enough evidence to send Perry to trial for his brother’s death.

The early morning shooting occurred at Lansing resident Chris Hugger’s home in the 300 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard after what Hugger described as a homecoming party gone wrong. Hugger said it was his gun that Perry used to shoot Jimenez.

Jimenez and Perry have the same mother but different fathers.

In Wednesday’s preliminary hearing, Hugger said he returned home the

Flameout: Young Sonics phenom Robert Swift falls hard

O
n
a December day in 2010, Bob and Casey Hill walked into a posh apartment just outside downtown Tokyo.

Bob, the former Sonics coach, and Casey, his son, were coaching the Tokyo Apache, a basketball team in the top Japanese league. But their visit had little to do with basketball.

Inside the apartment was Robert Swift, the 7-footer the Sonics selected with the 12th pick in the 2004 NBA draft. Swift entered the NBA as an 18-year-old brimming with potential, but he was out of the league after making about $10 million and playing in just 97 games. He was in Japan as a 25-year-old reclamation project.

Bob and Casey walked into Swift’s apartment and found him in bed. His room was dark. An empty bottle of vodka lay on the floor. He was hung over, and it was clear to Casey that Swift had been drinking alone after his fiancé had
