Correctional Deputy Jeremy Wayne Meyst


National dunk champions Young Hollywood and Airdogg of the West Coast Dreamers will host a charity basketball game Saturday in Visalia to benefit the family of Jeremy Meyst, a Tulare County Sheriff's Department correctional deputy who died in an on-duty accident last year.

The event will include professional "street ballers" and dunk contest winners, and Rostrum Records artist Vali.

The game is at El Diamante High School, 5100 W. Whitendale Ave. Doors open at 6 p.m., game time is 7 p.m. Tickets: $8, children under 3 free.

Meyst, 31, died on Christmas Eve when the prisoner transport van he was driving from Porterville to Visalia crashed in a solo-vehicle accident in the middle of the night.

Meyst left behind his wife, Sarah, of Visalia, and their sons Joshua, 10, and Eric, 7.
