The 35-year-old mayor of California city San Gabriel was arrested in the wee hours of this morning after an incident in which he allegedly scuffled with a 33-year-old woman (relationship unknown), grabbed her purse of belongings, and attempted to drive off with her still clinging to his S.U.V.
Here, I’ll stop paraphrasing and give you all of the juicy alleged details. From LAT:
Police said they received a call about 1:15 a.m. Friday about a heated argument between Huang and a woman. Investigators determined Huang was arguing over money with the woman outside a restaurant in the 300 block of West Valley Boulevard.
Huang allegedly took the woman’s purse, which contained her car keys, cash and personal belongings and got into her car, Duran said.
The woman attempted to prevent him from leaving by reaching through the vehicle’s window. Huang then allegedly pushed the woman, got out of her car and entered his own, a Nissan SUV.
The woman then reached through the passenger window of Huang’s SUV and stood on its running boards, Duran said.
“It’s a 25 mph speed limit zone, and he’s doing 45 with the female hanging on the car,” Duran said.
Huang drove more than a quarter mile with the woman on his car, Duran said.
The woman was apparently unhurt by the incident. But mouths are still agape–each detail of the story more jaw-dropping than the previous.
And I know what you’re thinking: HE DRIVES AN S.U.V.? THAT IS SO NOT “ECO!”

Name: Jane Kim
Occupation: President of the San Francisco Board of Education, civil rights attorney
Hails from: Ess Eff (via Enn Why)
Why She’s A Babe: Jane Kim is one of those people who has apparently spent their lives entirely devoted to doing cool shit for other people. She’s a community organizer, tenant advocate, civil rights attorney, and elected official with a CV that seems to go on for days. Her colorful career choices alone give us due cause to crush on her (Oh man, nothing says, “I’ll show YOU law school, Mom and Dad” better than becoming a civil rights attorney that supports the art community in her spare time), but let’s be real here. Chica is sa-mokin’ hot.
Kim has the flawless skin, dancing eyes, prominent cheekbones, shiny hair and pretty lips of a person that could get by despite the fact that they, y’know, kick small children and don’t recycle. But we’re pretty sure she doesn’t do that. In fact, she seems quite fond of all kinds of children. We found this description of her work with the Board of Education on her site:
Jane Kim has advocated for expanded access for immigrant families, more equitable distribution of district resources, and greater accountability by the administration to the community whom they serve. Jane has provided leadership on a number of important educational reforms including closing the achievement/opportunity gap, redesigning the student assignment process, and promoting policies that have decreased the suspension and expulsion rates at SFUSD.
Though she was just elected by her colleagues to President of the Board in January of this year, it appears she now has her eyes on another prize in November: The SF Board of Supervisors. Oh good. Yet another thing to add to that CV!
Alrighty. So she’s practically perfect. But does she RECYCLE?

You probably agree: Evan Low was one of the true highlights of Angry Asian Man’s 30 under 30 list this year.
He is, after all, only 26. He’s also adorably handsome, with the kind of ready smile that somehow seems to denote a firm handshake and kind demeanor. And in 2006, months before the little bugger had even been elected to City Council in the city of Campbell, SF Mayor Newsom had officially declared June 5 “Evan Low Day” for San Fransiscans. The guy has his own day. Seriously.
As a city council member, Low quickly racked up distinctions as the first openly gay, Chinese American and youngest person in the Campbell City Council. He was also noted as the State of California’s youngest, openly gay official.
So get this: on Tuesday, Low was promoted from vice-mayor to a one-year term as Mayor of Campbell, which now makes him the youngest gay, and one of the youngest Asian American mayors in the whole freakin’ country. Hot diggity, this country needs more Gayors!
We can barely contain our excitement about a young, hot, gaysian rocking such a prestigious city office–but we will because we’re also reallyreallyreallyreally jealous that he has achieved so frickin’ much with nary a wrinkle around his happy eyes.
