  • A video stunt gone wrong leaves a woman charged in the fatal shooting of her boyfriend.   Monalisa Perez, of Halstad, was charged Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of Pedro Ruiz III.   A criminal complaint says the 19-year-old Perez told authorities Ruiz wanted to make a YouTube video of her shooting a bullet into a book he was holding against his chest. She says she fired from about a foot away.   Authorities say Ruiz died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.   The victim's aunt, Claudia Ruiz, tells WDAY-TV that the couple played pranks and put them on YouTube.   Perez was granted a public defender and released on $7,000 bail.   The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
  • A stolen car has four flat tires after a police chase.   The owner had chased after his car on foot after it was stolen near 800 South Quaker Avenue around 12:45 a.m. Thursday. Tulsa police arrived and took over. TPD Sergeant Joe Gimble tells KRMG that officers “pursued the vehicle until the vehicle crashed out over at First and Frankfort.” But the chase wasn't over. “Two occupants took off. One went east and the other one went west.” A police canine caught the driver, but his passenger is still at large.
  • In October of last year, TFD Chief Ray Driskell had a meeting with a captain who recorded the conversation. Capt. Nick Gillespie had been disciplined for an incident in which he was photographed sitting down in a ladder bucket during an incident. It was apparently not the first time Chief Driskell had to meet with Capt. Gillespie, and he clearly wasn’t happy about the circumstances. What followed can only be described as a no-holds barred, profanity-laced dressing down of an employee. It’s unclear whether Driskell knew he was being recorded, though he says early on that the discussion should remain inside that room. It didn’t, and after Gillespie was busted down from captain to firefighter, he went to arbitration and his attorney, Joel LaCourse, released the recording to the media. They also requested an investigation into Driskell’s treatment of Gillespie, and whether Driskell needed a CLEET certification in order to carry a firearm. Earlier this week, Mayor G. T. Bynum issued a statement in which he said the investigation by his office did not result in any disciplinary action against Driskell, and that the city attorney had previously issued an opinion that the chief didn’t need a CLEET certification. But the mayor’s statement did not directly address concerns over the language or tenor of the conversation between Driskell and Gillespie. Earlier this week, Fire Fighters Local 176 voted to hold a vote of no confidence concerning the chief. LaCourse tells KRMG that in the meantime, his client’s arbitration over his demotion will continue. They’re still considering whether any other legal action can or should be taken. He expressed his appreciation for the mayor’s willingness to investigate Driskell’s conduct, but admitted he was disappointed in the outcome. “Chief Driskell’s conduct towards Captain Gillespie was unequivocally inappropriate. He was berating him, he used substantial profanity and vulgarity that wouldn’t be tolerated within any other department within the city of Tulsa,” LaCourse said. KRMG has requested an interview with Chief Driskell, but so far he has declined.
  • Tulsa police are trying to find a hit and run driver. Matthew Hedenberg was stuck and killed as he walked on North Yale Avenue near East Admiral Place last week. The car may be a dark-color, 2004 to 2010 Chevy Cobalt with damage to the front end and to a passenger-side mirror. If you can help the investigation, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • A murder suspect wanted in Tulsa is arrested at a relative's home in Okmulgee. A state crime task force and a TPD warrant unit booked Andre Miles into jail Wednesday. Miles had been wanted in the fatal shooting of Antwan Hampton last November across from Booker T. Washington High School near Apache and Peoria.
