Local News

    We have updated information regarding a large grass fire in Okmulgee County on Monday. Emergency Management officials say the blaze burned 900 acres.  It's believed sparks from welding started the mess. One resident we spoke to says the firefighters did a great job of saving homes, but the fire did destroy a lot of hay. “Cows have to eat off that hay,” the resident said.  “A lot of farmers lost a lot of hay bales today.  That’s pretty discouraging.”  The fire was put out Monday night.  Crews are keeping an eye out to make sure the fire doesn’t spark back up. 
  • An Oklahoma group is getting antsy regarding Gov. Mary Fallin not yet setting a date to vote on medical marijuana. A petition last year garnered enough signatures to put the state question on a ballot to Oklahoma voters. Oklahomans for Health say Fallin must do so 90 days before the issue can go to the ballot. For reference, SQ788 would permit doctors to recommend patients for state-issued medical marijuana licenses in Oklahoma. Do you think medical marijuana should be legal in Oklahoma?  How about recreational marijuana? 
  • Tulsa police were looking for an air conditioning parts thief on Monday near 46th Street North and MLK. During this time, officers then came into contact with Roshawn Reason who was pushing a baby stroller down the street. Reason's aunt says officers found the parts they were looking for and a whole lot more inside the stroller. “Officers checked him and found all kinds of stuff,” the aunt said.  “My nephew took off running.” Despite being in handcuffs, Reason managed to make it about a block before being subdued.  While inside of a squad car, KRMG asked Reason why he ran? “I ain’t did nothing wrong,” Reason said.  Officers also recovered a stolen gun.  He has been booked into the Tulsa County Jail. 
  • A 38-year-old Oklahoma City babysitter is in jail and the 1-year-old boy she was watching is in the hospital. An OKC newspaper reports the little boy swallowed PCP while under the care of Patty Prince recently. Inside Prince's bedroom, officers recovered several empty vials as well as two vials with liquid PCP inside them. The baby was stabilized after reaching the hospital, but an update on his condition hasn't been released. Prince faces counts of child endangerment and possession of PCP.  She was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail. 
  • A residential fence has damage after the driver of a pickup truck won't stop during a police chase that ended near 800 South Rockford.  The chase started when an officer tried to stop 42-year old Windell Don Mangrum who was trying to elude him by driving onto a convenience store parking lot.  “The second responding officer discovered that the suspect had struck a manhole casing (and) lost control and crashed into an iron fence surrounding a home,”   TPD Cpl. James Stump said. Police were trying to stop Mangrum for a traffic violation near 1100 South Utica Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.  He was arrested for eluding police after a former conviction of a felony, drug possession, no driver license or insurance verification, taxes due the state and an improper tag.
  • Tulsa police search an area near Second Street and South Utica Avenue after a man says someone was trying to break into his house.  The resident fired a gunshot, but did not know whether he hit the man.  We're told the suspect was a black male wearing camoflage clothing.  The suspect was armed with a hand gun.  The man ran away after the shot was fired around 12:49 a.m. Tuesday near 1800 East 2 Street. Tulsa police say they checked with area hospitals, but no gunshot victim sought help early Tuesday.
  • Broken Arrow police are warning possible victims of a holiday crime that seems to increase before Black Friday.  We’re told a woman was the victim in a drive-by purse snatching Sunday at the Walmart near Aspen and Kenosha.  The victim said the driver of another vehicle reached out his car window and took her purse from her shopping cart on the parking lot. The suspect drove away. No one has been arrested in the case.
  • One person is dead in a head-on crash in Bixby.  The accident happened Monday night on East 111 Street South, between South Sheridan Road and Memorial Drive.  We're told a 27-year old driver crossed over the center line, causing the accident.  Two passengers in the other car had minor injuries.  Bixby police say the driver may have been drinking alcohol before the collision.
  • Former Tulsa police officer Shannon Kepler was sentenced this week to 15 years in prison after a manslaughter conviction in the shooting death of Jeremy Lake, but like every aspect of the case, determining how long he may actually serve in prison is complicated. For starters his attorney, Richard O’Carroll, has already said they will appeal the conviction. There’s also the looming case of Patrick Dwayne Murphy, whose 1999 murder conviction was overturned by the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals because it occurred in “Indian country,” and Lake’s death also occurred on what is - according to that ruling - part of a Creek Nation reservation which was never officially disestablished by the federal government. Since Kepler’s been on the roles of the Creek Nation since 1983, the pending appeal in the Murphy case could potentially land his case in federal court, obviating anything the state court did.
  • After four long trials, former Tulsa police officer Shannon Kepler learned his sentence Monday. Kepler was convicted of fatally shooting his daughter's boyfriend, 19-year-old Jeremey Lake, in 2014. Carl Morse, Lake’s father, spoke during Shannon Kepler's sentencing hearing. Morse said he woke up Monday wanting to 'to rip the head off' of Kepler, but later said it would do him no good to carry that hate and that it wouldn't bring back his son. A judge later sentenced Kepler to 15 years in prison.

  • Some people just never get tired of trying to prove the Moon landing was a hoax. This time, it's a video that was uploaded to YouTube and has gotten around a million views. Newsweek reports the uploader, looking at an old photo from the Apollo 17 mission, claims to have spotted a person not wearing a spacesuit in the reflection of the helmet visor of an Astronaut walking on the moon. But some commenters say it looks just like another astronaut to them. And some point out that these days, just about anyone with simple software can convincingly alter a photo. You can look at the photo in question here.
  • A led to a Butler County couple suing their police department for a wrongful drug bust. >> Read more trending newsAudrey and Edward Cramer talked about that incident on Thursday as they announced the lawsuit. The Cramers said it all started when their insurance agent came to their Buffalo Township home for a property damage claim and took pictures of hibiscus plants. The agent thought they were marijuana and gave the pictures to police. Audrey Cramer could not hold back the tears as she described how three Buffalo Township police officers pulled her out of her home on Oct. 5 wearing only her underwear. 'I was not treated as though I was a human being. I was just something they were going to push aside,' she said. “I asked them again if I could put pants on and he told me no and I had to stand out on the porch.' The Cramers say that police thought they were growing marijuana in the backyard of their Garden Way home. When officers got a search warrant and went to their house, the Cramers say their home was ransacked and they were handcuffed and forced to sit in a police car for four hours. 'Sometimes I think they look for a crime where it doesn't exist in order to justify their existence,' Edward Cramer said. Edward Cramer says he tried to explain that the plants were hibiscus flowers. The couple's attorney, Al Lindsay, filed a lawsuit today on their behalf. 'I cannot understand the frame of reference that was on these police officers’ minds, what were they thinking,” Lindsay said. The Cramers say they never got an apology. Audrey says she has severe emotional trauma. 'I don't sleep at night,” she said. “And you don't leave me at the house by myself.' Channel 11 reached out to the Buffalo Township police and the township manager but they have yet to respond.
