Ten minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition WWL first news on this the fourteenth of April 2016. Most Eric Dane before Friday all happy Friday eve do you and your taco ball is coming down your yeah head that yes it is and is. Oren Dan. If you got to get out early this morning be aware that there are sheets of rain falling from this guy. And you ought to contend that is we have to get through today. And know more tomorrow before we get the much nicer conditions for the week that's good timing. The value out I had to pick your eyes during now what you wandering on the weekend. I am going now now let's get it done better yet. I'm very interested to see what's going to happen. In this debate today over the bill to block the removal. Of the monuments. Here in New Orleans the civil war monument have created so much controversy. You know though last Billy came up to deal with this. Was in the committee. That was chaired by day. Karen Carter Peterson. Move. Didn't want anything to do with this one here any of it and the bill is DO way it had better get that this committee perhaps. Will be more open to. The debate and the discussion. And we'll see if this can get out of committee and make it to the legislative floor because. It is an emotional issue for people it is a issue to get people. To kind of take very. Specific positions very heated position and felt they have Al particular issues. A he's an African American former lawmaker who's supporting this. I think gives it a better shot getting a committee so him. So when he sang thirty years older. I just before a thirty years and he says to recruit source explaining it. Would be preserves I guess well it'd be protected through Taiwan where it'd be a state board yeah. That would then have to make the call on what happens with it. It would add another layer of bureaucracy. And it's state. Tennis today. On what happens to any monuments anywhere in the state. For fear is that. You know these things perhaps are decided. Not based necessarily on a broader more umbrella look at them. But based specifically on either political agendas or other motivations though we'll will seek. If you support the monument removal and you want them to come down I think that this is a threat to that happening if you support the monuments. And want them to remain. I'm not sure you should be jumping up and down with joy yet just because this bill has a chance of getting a committee. Now on your right it does set up another lie Euro bureaucracy yes it does. Talk about layers to this story about the shooting death of wheels I don't know man has become such case steak onions. Whereas. Seem to showed dramatically different stories being presented by lawyers for the Smith family and lawyers for the shooter. It makes aegis. Wonder how in the world do we ever as a society. Come into agreement weather's. To varying reports from. Police don't witnesses and suspects and victims and lawyers and moyers and everybody's got a different story about what happened and I just hope that there's enough. Video evidence. We've only seen sums so. I just hope in the end there's enough video evidence to tell us who was the aggressor in this. Was there now police cover up as the attorney. For the defendant is suggesting. That Will Smith did have a gun did brandished that go. But then. His friend a former police officer orchestrated. He cover up according to the defense. You know right tourney for the families of Losman never got his gun out got it stayed in a compartment in his SUV. And that that Will Smith was shot for his but his wife rock cal was shot forest which would destroy the self defense claim. If. Because that's what avenue of the defendant shot the white stars out. And it's like who has never allegedly armed and was. I don't know I just like the minute you think may be you've got an understanding. May be. Then something else comes out you go all really geared are certainly a lot of secrets. Questar witnesses afraid for her life because. Former police officers orchestrated a cover up it could kill her she's afraid she. But then on the other side Guyton oh here's a guy driving along Zuma slams on the breaks environments dobbs he goes wait. 1130 at night why is this guy stopping in front of us like this does he plan to rob us or do us harm let's get the hell I a year. And they had taken off and the the guy gets out of the car and continues to threaten and Kirsten. I don't know who to believe or what to believe. And that's where our legal system is so important. And all this you know by the defense is just an effort to create reasonable capital and aid. You are and the detectives gonna have to work hard on this one yeah. Thank you David talked about fifteen minutes more first news here on WWL AM FM and act now take a look at that forecast Korea when as the rain comes to an end up next. Steve Geller and was sports. The big NBA news. Last nine dividend with the LSU tigers. On the baseball diamond. In the end of the season for the pelicans think that that's. When president Texas today 77 he may be will Smith's Weis pulled the gun first she got shot first. I don't know the defense is so vague about what they say they're witnesses so we don't know if that's what they're going to allege or not. But did also indicate that perhaps it wasn't the defendant did shatter that may be it was another gun that ended up shooting here. Saying the ballistics will be very important and all this so I don't know what to believe anymore another presence as a sad thing Dave. Is the Smith case is just one of many that have multiple sides and so many layers the only reason we know about it. Is because of the celebrity involved I pray for our legal system in society. Those as a nonaggressive person is not going to ram your cars and to somebody else's but very very angry person would. So there's someone who seems to be supporting will Smith's attorneys. Account of what happened that he was just the victim not the aggressor never pulled out a gun and was just an angry man. Approached him in and shot him eight times seven of them in the bag one in the side. And defense as you get away from the point a gun a year before you should have movies go on for his gun. What a trial this one's going to be a lot of rain out there. Today's a day to have the umbrellas yet again scattered showers and storms out there this morning. And it will continue off and on for the next several hours that means a wet morning commute any wet data get the kids off to school. Highs around 76 this afternoon is rain chances begin to trail off.

I've had flu like symptoms could not place the only route seventy available players suit man who cares as. My question is do the pelicans make a coaching change again. Last year they made it to the playoffs. Austria the playoffs. And they changed coaches this year David demons and fifth the playoffs they weren't even in the same. State is the plan in the same country at the playoffs. They stick with the coach again now and again another change I've believed that Alvin Gentry will DC because they take into account all these injuries and we keep saying that by immediately hear the same damn thing but no Anthony Davis or Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon in the list keeps going one economic class even if Davis stayed healthy LC I'm just hoping whoever does and the coming your numbering some special healing potions with them because they meet.

For the pinpoint forecast center I'm Debbie have you LTV meteorologist Florida itself. 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this fourteenth of April 4142006. Picture is implode day before Friday happy Friday eve do you and your someone text me it's 78 Celanese as I miss the days when judges used but gag orders and attorneys. In try cases in court based on evidence and testimony. Instead of in the media. In it is amazing how different the stories we heard yesterday from the attorney for the Smith family. The attorney of will Smith's family you know saluted. Shot and killed seven shots in the back one in the side. And the attorney for Ricardo hey is the man who shot him. And the one side is saying the defense that there's a police cover up that Smith had a gun. That Smith and somebody and his party were the aggressors. And that that gun was then hidden by a former police officer who's a friend of Will Smith. And the truth was intent there was an attempt to hide the truth and that when he called the lead detective suddenly they've found a gun that base couldn't find for days. Okay yeah and we heard though from the Smith family so that was you know that was earlier from the defense and from the Smith family attorney. We hear that Smith innocent victim of a enraged crazy man yeah rammed his car who shoots him in the back after shooting his wife. First. And that none of this immense ever brandished a gun. Completely different story got ya told. Lee enraged. Things as a shooter is as Lisa it's it's his lawyers says. Yeah its missile he meant to be honest here. Call are gonna come down to which witnesses do you believe and how good is the video evidence and is there a smoking gun. In this case is it going to be one piece of evidence that I in the police line. By the defense lines that will define this case it's still barrier for toxicology yet we don't have ballistic yet we don't have. We want to know is just happen and we don't have victim interviews with dialogue and there's so much more that will develop. And gossip at some point we do stuff debating in the public exactly and a and that's the attacks through there caller listeners you know is right on target because that's why it's happening every day we're getting another day. Of lawyers telling us another story. Yes stay tuned folks we will all eventually get this thing into court on be about a year from now no longer and have a trial in the meantime. I think a lot of this will continue all right. That someone on this story goes in the one with people's file I would imagine from Billings Montana. Where the Associated Press writes nothing can stop true. Not even armed robbers. Police in Montana's largest city are looking for three suspects who robbed a bar at gunpoint. But it did indeed seem to disturb a couple who were making out through the camera which they talk about bodies. An employee at that tap in and several patrons told police in Billings Montana. That two people. A man and a woman wearing. That you man and a woman wearing bandanna as angle of stormed the bar and casino. And demanded money surveillance video from the business says the bartender quickly opening of the cash register and putting his hands in the air as did the bar. Most of the bar patron archives of everybody's paying attention we're all being robbed yes here's the gun here is. But bandanna and give me the money and in several other hands in the except for this one cup. Who just can't getting to yes it is all air. Adam Hall off the cut the president off of recovery going out and they were really here under with a calf that's it. Has some serious yeah absolutely could just keep going right through an armed programme as and they had had a few drinks they'll war is that when somebody comes opens as I can get a room and yeah. The robbers left with a non dispose at an undisclosed amount of cash the bartender called 911 no one is hard and the kissing continued. It. My that may be. Good and I imagine that when they heard the story what happened. They hand umbrella. I did once meet them while that don't. And then here's one from Norwalk Connecticut. If you had committed the crime 27 years. It was his weighing on your soul and your conscience and you could not. Sleep at night apparently because he just had the wrong this right it eventually turn yourself and how many years seven Lou police say a man charged with stealing a television in Connecticut 27 years ago all come loose from his Florida home and voluntarily turned himself man. After recently learning that there was a warrant for his arrest. Police in Norwalk Connecticut. Say that sixty year old Randy. Diana Cologne. Of port saint Lucie Florida arrived at headquarters Sunday with a letter notifying him of the Warren. So apparently days someone opened this cold case from 27 years ago. In which the charges stemmed from the 1989 theft of a television. And where the guy or to the custodian at a Jewish senator. And they've finally put the pieces together for some reason decided it was it was a vision award for his arrest was it's pretty cool it turned himself in. Imagine that that. Statue limitations had run but I guess. But she DTV. 27 years again. Not even a lapse during the hand man and I think it would have been like you know what can. Is that I fix this at this one out this Xavier coming again both of those got the sense away dollar goes. But I guess the acts of what he did you discolored Lebanon's main now allies in the with a Warren offers around and again in the mail thank you David. Thank you must the tournament to more arsenic. And it's coming down here it is to go live and direct the pinpoint forecast and it's a good morning. Happy Friday. This meteorologist Laura blocked out with history. Yan. I CNN. And you know one of the guys who works here shut up about ten minutes late. Just walked in here a few minutes ago and I'm sorry I'm glad I left the house is the normal time I faced and I'll put out last. Known and I'm just someone who works here. And to yap right. When there is nasty horrible terrible no good very bad weather. Don't think you need to leave a few minutes early because you can't drive as fast and it's going to be slower traffic and long after the normal time. Not enough actually left early this morning at this situation like I have had a different. Yeah. I actually left a few minutes earlier this school beat somebody first thing you know understand my point is a did bad weather out there if you privately for him. To. Fill. You ballot although it is cricket treatments. Sheets of rain following this guy in wet road in my point is just tell others if you don't wanna get in trouble with the law and even a few minutes earlier when this battle whipped around by the way it currently at. It and how people here turning around it. There's an upcoming prequel. Angle in the debate is going out. I got her right. Yet that's a difficult thing because. Out there. Yesterday and that it yesterday. And today lots. Wait wait hold on. I. Calls the gulf washes right on. Line column just rain. Locks no question. Sounds so. Just typical reality its like it's up. There another word that I use warm. Rubber boots are made. An ahead with a mom said that her for any tendencies and mr. Obama waters now we'll just try and dryers on air dry in the heat than. Well it's it's exactly happened with that she took her purports that. Specials the. Well no but choose advocated a ticket like you know it's gonna rain it. Perhaps thinking that you got out mediacom go lodges or anything else for that matter what they are to begin to break and a bag that it is I don't. Think the he had decades now can it get made fun of school exit to implement drag them shoot. The. Unity breaks in the rain we get it right it's going for a for the next YL but the Atlantic and after it will slack off a bit. On its catering to the incident and it's and Martha in that. Yeah how much. On down about 30%. On. Friday Saturday Sunday. A 20%. To keep my present net interest on it and keep it on Saturday. Sunday. But 28%. Thirteen hours. Whether if the weather's getting about the we're both got fired up putts and really be quite yet you're way to put it to bring a rock. I tell me give you something that may make you happy to smile heavies in the movie Finding Nemo. OK and you know how he did hit me yet you know the fish plan their escape yes right. From the dentist stuff there at that missed it and they like packed into the ocean particularly Nemo once find his dad. Well I'm got to wonder if Inky the octopus in New Zealand did not see that movie so. Because this is an amazing escape story states to Inky the octopus waited until it was dark and the staff had gone home from the national aquarium of New Zealand. Before making his move. That quick yeah. There. Security masters with you the Associated Press Inky squeezed and pushed his way through a tiny gap in the match at the top of his tank. And saluted six point six feet to the floor. Then he made a beeline across the room to a drain hole. With a body the size of a rugby ball. It is about the size of I guess of the bigfoot it. Anke managed to stretch out and squeeze into the hole. From there he Shimmy down that 164. Foot pipe. Until he was packed in the Pacific Ocean. Or. And we that we he would keep on Anke has apparently gone. More but how do you know that drain hole was gonna take him to the ocean animals arches. Creatures. But I'd like for all left behind with this line we rail line trail. Hard. And they re created the amazing escape goat. You could you wing tee is now the kid as I got beat by a shark moment. I. He was safe in the aquarium well let me go out and I thank you Laura. Lawrence like cell have an effect on the pinpoint what one person Texas soccer watches went over your shoes Sosa's didn't everyone wears watches as a kid. I don't think I have ever said the word go wash his before in my entire life. The lord did and someone else's pocket you leave early for work if your alarm is set for the normal time and you are sleeping and don't know it's raining Carmine well I have two things that 81 you should not it was gonna rain and maybe should take your alarm a little earlier. Or two if you do it now. Woman to shorten your preparation will you wake up draw that walk right out the door to be somewhere in that time you can shorten things up and get a few minutes early. Steve Geller here right on time. When sports at WW that you gave good morning everybody Kobe Bryant and it is twenty year NBA career by writing a Utah for a season high sixty points in the lakers 101 to 96 victory over the task. You're trying to go while Bernard. And try to put on the show this much is upon us recruit and Coco could be do mormons are. Like momma delivered 23 points in the fourth quarter including thirteenth street in just over two minutes. The Golden State Warriors became the first 73 wood in the history by beating the Memphis Grizzlies won 25 to one of four. Breaking what many considered him a manageable marks at twenty years ago by Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls stepped Kory Sheets yet one more shooting milestone becoming the first player to make. 403. Pointers in this season by knocking down ten from long range on his way to point six points on the night. He says records are nice but another championship is more important. Do its substance and you know finish to finish the job off. Having gone through experience last year a lot goes into each playoff series and the manager to win a championship and it's entirely different in the regular season so I think we're prepare for that. Pelican season came to an end what they won 442109. Beat down in Minnesota the pills only had six and healthy available players to suit up. The LSU baseball team outs look Grambling for a fourteen to eleven victory. Jordan Romero runners going base hit center field. Coming around the store will be both Jordan. After tallying just two hits it'll estimate we stay on Tuesday LA she's bats were homed in roughing a great league pitching for seventy minutes. But 22 and eleven by U bagels begin a three games SEC series at Missouri tomorrow. And the Iowa Cubs top December's nine to five that series wraps up this afternoon then disease will head to Metairie for their home opener which is tomorrow night. Today apple wrong sport spoke with Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia two weeks away from the NFL draft we'll check in with Mike to you hate to see whose stock is on the rise and and who has dropped plus the NFL schedule comes out tonight at 7 o'clock how tough for the saints season be. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sport. Nicer to drive gave gone Steve Geller with you on your radio I'm so happy the pelicans season is over and that we can now have an opportunity for that team to regroup regroup and figure out how to be better next season and meanwhile we have plenty of LSU baseball to come including a big series this weekend. When you think about them allowing eleven runs but scoring fourteen against Grambling last night. Yeah it was nice to see an out and offensive output after only getting two hits the night before against nick mis state but. Are still some troubles with the arms in the mid week games we're not sure of the pitching staff and the bullpen surrendering some hits late in the game. Tom we do know at least that. That tiger starting weekend rotation is set and it seems to be. A bomb on point right now on track hopefully they can get it done a Missouri because right now every game is becoming more more crude was crucial in the Southeastern Conference. Daddy felt pretty good after they. Took two or three from the number two team in the nation last weekend Mannelly Gupta Missouri which is not as good a team but there on the road and who knows what's gonna happen when this team hopefully they continue their winning ways in the SEC in these mid weekend just kind of weeks. Yeah and I just think that you don't get a look at some of the local teams here. Bringing their top eight game to play against the mighty mighty jealous you tiger and he goes like their World Series thank you Steve backed with more sports in about ten minutes here on WW.
