CLEVELAND (AP) — Six officers in Cleveland's troubled police department were indicted Friday in a November 2012 car chase that ended with two unarmed suspects dying in a hail of 137 shots, was decried as a racially motivated execution and is part of a wide-ranging federal investigation.

Patrol officer Michael Brelo has been charged with two counts of manslaughter, and five supervisors have been charged with dereliction of duty for failing to control the chase.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said at a news conference Friday that the law dictated he not seek charges against the other 12 officers who fired shots that night.

"No one respects or admires the work of a dedicated professional police officer more than a prosecutor," McGinty said. "They are heroes, but they, too, must answer to the law."

Drug helps breast cancer patients keep fertility

CHICAGO (AP) — Doctors may have found a way to help young breast cancer patients avoid infertility caused by chemotherapy. Giving a drug to shut down the ovaries temporarily seems to boost the odds they will work after treatment ends, and it might even improve survival, a study found.

"They're really exciting findings" that could help thousands of women each year in the United States alone, said the study's leader, Dr. Halle Moore of the Cleveland Clinic.

"This has implications far beyond breast cancer," for young women with other types of tumors, too, added Dr. Clifford Hudis, breast cancer chief at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

He is president of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, which featured the study at its annual conference in Chicago on Friday. More than 30,000 cancer specialists from around the world are attending.

Orr: $1 billion Detroit bankruptcy deal at risk

MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — Detroit's emergency manager warned Friday that a complex package of nearly $1 billion in possible aid for the bankrupt city could unravel unless city employees and retirees approve a pension deal.

Kevyn Orr said $195 million in upfront state money still has to be approved by state senators — possibly next week — and he worries city workers and retirees voting on a related deal to cut their pensions by up to 4.5 percent will make a "protest vote" or be influenced by creditors such as bond insurers trying to undermine the agreement with "misinformation."

The state funds, the equivalent of $350 million spread over 20 years, would be joined with $466 million in commitments from 12 foundations and the Detroit Institute of Arts to shore up the city's two retirement systems while the city-owned art museum and its assets would be transferred to a private nonprofit. Roughly 30,000 retirees and city employees are in the midst of a 2-monthlong vote on the pension and art deal.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Josh Gordon's troubles are piling up fast.

Cleveland's Pro Bowl wide receiver, facing a possible NFL suspension for another failed drug test, was ticketed for speeding last weekend and a passenger in his car was cited for marijuana possession.

Gordon was pulled over for driving 74 mph in a 60 mph zone on May 25, WKYC-TV reported Friday. According to the report, the passenger in Gordon's Mercedes was issued a citation for possession of marijuana in an amount under 200 grams. The marijuana was found in a blue bag with identification. The passenger said the marijuana was not Gordon's.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer issued a statement regarding Gordon's latest issue.

DETROIT (AP) — A Michigan teacher humiliated a student with Asperger's syndrome by videotaping him after he became wedged in a chair and showing the footage to his fifth-grade class and her colleagues, the school's superintendent wrote in a letter obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

Goodrich Area Schools Superintendent Scott Bogner sent the letter to the school board to summarize his investigation into what happened Nov. 22 in teacher Nicole McVey's classroom at Oaktree Elementary School. The letter reveals for the first time that McVey was holding the recording device, suggested the video be sent to a national television show, and continued showing it to colleagues after several told her it was inappropriate.
