Local News

    The recent rain in Tulsa County has done more than just saturate the area. Drivers in Tulsa tell us they've noticed a lot more potholes pop up. “You almost have to dodge them a lot of times, which puts you in a lot of trouble getting in the way of other traffic,” one driver said.   Police in Broken Arrow report the same thing has happened along Lynn Lane. One resident states the problem has always been there, but now it's even worse. “It’s just really bad because of the rain,” that resident said.   She adds the new potholes have made her family’s daily drive a little more difficult. Let us know where the worst potholes can be found in Tulsa County.  
  • We have updated information regarding an officer-involved fatal shooting in Tulsa back on Christmas Day. Tulsa World reports prosecutors recently decided not to file charges against Officer Jairo Calle. The scene happened on South Wheeling Avenue.  Jacob Craig apparently “went bananas” and pointed a gun at Calle. On Friday, Criag's mother spoke with the newspaper. She says her son had a history of mental illness and Calle “failed in numerous ways to save my son.” Do you believe it’s the right decision not to charge the officer?  Let us know in the comments.  
  • On Saturday, dozens of people marched in downtown Tulsa to support people effected by the current DACA situation. For reference, the Obama-era policy protects those who were brought into the U.S. illegally as children. We spoke to Rosa Hernandez, who has renewed DACA protection.  Still, she’s fighting for those who do not.   “We’re just really tired of being dismissed because a lot of us don’t have citizenship or don’t have residency,” Hernandez said.  “We are a very vital part of the community.” Congress has not yet come up with a permanent plan, despite President Trump setting a March 5 deadline for protections to end. Do you think anything will get done in congress involving DACA?  Let us know in the comments.  
  • No injuries were reported following a vehicle crashing into a Tulsa Cici's Pizza Saturday night. The collision happened at the location near 21st and Garnett. Police at the scene report it doesn't appear alcohol or drugs were involved. Instead, investigators believe the truck had a mechanical issue. KRMG's told there were employees and customers inside the restaurant at the time of the crash. So far, no damage estimates have been released.  
  • A 21-year-old man was taken into custody on Friday for allegedly fatally shooting his roommate in Ottawa County. The shooting happened in Commerce on South River Street. In a news release issued by the the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, the body of Jose Gonzales III was found in the front yard of his place. It's believed Homero Ceballos shot Gonzales multiple times during an argument. No word on what the argument was about.  
  • KRMG has learned two Tulsa officers have non-life threatening injuries after a minivan struck their patrol car Saturday night. The collision happened around 8:14 p.m. near East 36th and North Lewis Avenue. A police supervisor tells us the officers attempted to stop a vehicle on Mohawk for no headlights. “The vehicle he was following turned north on Birmingham Ave.,” the supervisor added.  “As the officer turned north on Birmingham, his unit was struck by a minivan traveling west on Mohawk Blvd.” The officers were transported to a nearby hospital.  KRMG’s told the two people inside the minivan were not hurt. 
  • Unfortunately, another local school threat has been discovered.  The latest threat is being shared on Facebook by parents afraid for the their children.  In a post including gun emojis, the plan is allegedly supposed to go down on Monday at Union.  The message doesn’t say which Union school.   “WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING 2/26/18 Monday 2:30 p.m. The fire alarm will siren.  Everybody will evacuate into the halls trying to get outside and as they do that, shots will be fired into the crowded areas.   I will then kill myself to take the easy way out.  Don’t say you didn’t have a heads up.” KRMG is not posting the actual post because there is a cuss word at the bottom.  The name of the poster is not on there, but a comment below the post claims the police have been notified.       
  • The ground will be a bit soggy, but today should be perfect for outdoor activities. National Weather Service says the recent rain will move out of the Tulsa area. “Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the lower 60”s,” NWS said.   Conditions will remain dry Sunday night.  NWS is reporting mostly clear skies and a low around 30 degrees.   There is some good news weather wise for the upcoming work week.  The Tulsa area should see highs in the 60’s through Thursday.  
  • It was like a scene out of a mob movie.  A Chicago man was arrested at Tulsa International Airport this week after Transportation Security Administration officers found $50,000 in cash concealed in a false bottom of a suitcase. Tulsa World reports 31-year-old Steffon Jackson was on his way to Las Vegas via Dallas.  It may be a while before he reaches his destination.   The money reportedly smelled of marijuana. Jackson now faces a count of possession of drug proceeds. The Department of Homeland Security and deputies took him into custody.
  • Two people are lucky to be alive after their car hit a train in Tulsa Friday night.  The crash happened near Pine on Harvard.  Investigators were told by the driver his windows were fogged up at the time of the collision. Police say the train was only moving about 8 miles per hour.  One person was transported to the hospital and the other was not injured.  So far, no names have been released.   Crews had difficulties moving the car due to ground conditions.

  • Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee on Saturday released their redacted response to a Republican memo on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, as Democrats charged that the GOP omitted numerous details about the FBI’s probe during the campaign for the White House. “FBI and DOJ officials did not “abuse” the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign,” the Democratic memo states. “The FBI supplied information to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that Russia might be colluding with Trump campaign associates,” Democrats said in a press statement announcing the release of the memo, which had been held back earlier this month after the White House raised questions about details included in the ten page memo. “Some time ago, Republicans on our committee released a declassified memo that omitted and distorted key facts in order to mislead the public and impugn the integrity of the FBI,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel. “We can now tell you what they left out,” Schiff added. BREAKING: Congress releases redacted Democratic memo pushing back on GOP claims of surveillance abuses in FBI's Russia probe. — AP Politics (@AP_Politics) February 24, 2018 Democrats said their rebuttal “should put to rest any concerns that the American people might have as to the conduct of the FBI, the Justice Department and the FISC,” as they said the evidence “failed to uncover any evidence of illegal, unethical, or unprofessional behavior by law enforcement.” Democrats not only countered that, but raised questions about the testimony of one-time Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, who was the focus of the original Republican memo, as the GOP raised questions about how surveillance had been approved of Page. Democrats said the answer was not the information supplied by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. Some portions of the document on those points were blacked out, or redacted. You can read the full Democratic memo at this link. Democrats also released a fact sheet to go with the memo.
  • Local districts have been dealing with a lot of school threats recently. In fact, at least four children have been arrested. Tulsa County Assistant District Attorney Erik Grayless has a warning for anyone thinking about making a threat of their own. “If you threaten a school, we will prosecute you,” Grayless said.   The district attorney's office is so serious about these threats that Grayless was willing to get even more specific. “You cannot post pictures of firearms on Instagram and reference your school,” Grayless said.  “That’s a threat.  The threat itself, regardless of your intentions, is a crime.” KRMG's told that alone could lead to a misdemeanor charge and six months of jail time.
  • If you have outdoor plans for today be prepared to get wet. National Weather Service Meteorologist David Jankowski says more rain is likely for the Tulsa area. “Showers are expected to increase and becoming an 80 percent chance by the mid-morning hours,” Jankowski said.  “It looks like the rainfall forecast across the area for Saturday will be less than a half of an inch.” For reference, Tulsa saw 1.59 inches during the day on Friday.   The high for today will be around 58 degrees. Sunday will be a lot better for outdoor activities.  NWS is reporting sunny skies and a high close to 64 degrees.
