  • A new study shows that Native American Tribes have contributed significantly to Oklahoma's economic growth. The study was done through the Oklahoma Tribal Finance Consortium, and shows tribes had a near $13 Billion dollar impact on the state, an increase of nearly $10 Billion dollars since 2011. The study shows employment numbers also spiked with 10,000 new jobs since 2011. The information comes as Gov. Kevin Stitt has asked tribes to renegotiate their gaming compacts.

  • Tulsa police and city water crews are asking drivers to avoid the intersection at 21st and 129th East Avenue.  A-36-inch water line burst there around three Friday morning, bringing officers and a repair crew to the scene.  “First step they said was to get the water shut off but then (workers) said the intersection is still going to be torn up for a considerable amount of time after that,” TPD Cpl. Matt Arnold said.  Power was shut off to the area for worker safety. We're told the intersection will be a mess until repairs can be made.
  • An 18-year old assault suspect is cuffed after he runs from police by car and again on foot.

Brett Bilyeu said, “An officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop but the suspect refused to stop...and a pursuit started.”  Dixon was arrested on 21 charges around 1 a.m. Friday near Pine and Sheridan.
