Police Investigating Incident at Cowboys Thanksgiving Game. Arlington police are looking into disturbing footage of security personnel choking a Panthers fan before kicking him out of last Thursday’s game. On multiple videos, you can see fans of both the Cowboys and Panthers (and what looks like a Bears fan) trying to stop the security team from choking John Small. Small, 24, says he and his mother flew to Texas for the game to help get their minds off the death of Small’s father, one year ago that day.
Accused Dog Killer Cries in Court. Bradley Glenn Boley began to cry yesterday as prosecutors showed photos of the two-and-a-half-month-old puppy that Boley allegedly trapped on top of a stove. Jurors saw photos that showed the dog “had black plastic melted to his legs, nose, ears and face. In other parts, his white fur had been burnt and tinged brown.” Boley faces up to 10 years in prison.
Buc-ee’s Coming to Denton. The city council there voted last night to approve an $8 million, 22-year tax incentive plan that would bring a Buc-ee’s Travel Center to I-35E. Some argued against the deal, citing worries of pollution and congestion. Others argued the chain’s clean bathrooms and 96 gas pumps will bring business and tax revenue. (Side note: In reporting this story, about a 10-year-old stand up comic, I learned that Buc-ee’s is also a child’s birthday party destination.)

The 76 year old called her daughter three times from the car, and her family called 911. Tarrant County Deputy Krystal Salazar waded into the water to try to save Jenkins, with family members watching, when rushing waters carried the deputy over the guard rail and off the bridge. She was found clinging to a tree downstream hours later.
