Louisiana residents could wake up to a light snowfall tomorrow. Don Molino has more…

Cut 1 (30) “I’m Don Molino”


One of the former fraternity members who allegedly participated in the hazing death of LSU student Max Gruver has been ordered to turn over his cellphone passcode…

Cut 2 (30) “I’m Matt Doyle”  


Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis has reportedly submitted a trade request and informed the team he will not re-sign when his contract expires in the summer of 2020. Davis would pass up a potential 230 million dollar contract, but Advocate Pelicans writer Scott Kushner says A-D wants to play for a winning franchise…

Cut 3 (11) “…been led.”

The Pels are 22-and-28 this season, a sharp turn of events from last year, when the underdog Pels swept the third seeded Trailblazers in the first round of the playoffs, before losing to the Warriors in five games.

It’s the end of yet another era in New Orleans defined by one star player who left for greener pastures. Kushner says there’s plenty of blame to go around for the team’s inability to be more than just an 8th seed contender.

Cut 4 (12) “…change direction.″

Earlier this year Davis was spotted with Lebron James at a restaurant, where James reportedly pitched The Brow on playing in the City of Angels.

Davis has averaged 24 points and 11 rebounds a game on 52 percent shooting for his career in New Orleans, while playing a pivotal defensive role for the team. Kushner says there is no trade that can replace his performance, but it’s possible that a good haul could lead to a brighter future down the road.

Cut 5 (11) “…going forward.”

Reports indicate the Celtics would be able to offer the best package for AD, but would have to wait until July to do so.


A winter weather advisory is in effect tonight and into early tomorrow morning for much of north and central Louisiana. Forecaster Mario Valverde, with the National Weather Service, says light snow is expected in Monroe and Alexandria, while Shreveport might see a tenth of an inch…

Cut 6 (08) “…morning hours”

Valverde says hazardous travel conditions are possible because of the light snowfall…

Cut 7 (10) “…travel problems”

Valverde says rain will develop tonight across the northern half of the state as an artic cold front moves through. He says they believe the snow will not start falling until early tomorrow morning…

Cut 8 (08) “…wake up.”


A stage judge orders one of the former LSU students who allegedly played a role in the suspected hazing death of Max Gruver in 2017 to hand over his cellphone’s passcode, so investigators can search for potentially incriminating evidence. Loyola University Law Professor Dane Ciolino says it’s a surprising decision, considering how this same question has played out elsewhere.

Cut 9 (12) “password.″

An attorney for 20-year-old Matthew Naquin of Texas has argued by turning over the code, his client would violate his constitutional right against self-incrimination.

Ciolino says Naquin does not have a choice about turning over the cellphone, unless he wants to break the law. He says this isn’t a situation where you can just… conveniently forget the pin to get into the phone.

Cut 10 (11) “…particular”.

Because requiring cell phone passwords is not settled law, Ciolino says convicting Naquin on the back of evidence obtained from his device is likely to lead to a lengthy series of legal challenges that may not favor the prosecution.

Cut 11 (11) “habeas corpus.”


The state department of transportation is monitoring the potential for wintry precipitation and will continue to do so through tomorrow morning. DOTD spokesperson Erin Buchanan…

Cut 12 (11)   “…conditions.”

Buchanan says wintry precipitation falls during the overnight hours, be extra careful on your way to work or school…

Cut 13 (07) “…hazardous weather”

To get updates on road conditions you can go to 5-1-1, L-A-dot-org. Buchanan says they’ll have crews on the roadways tonight looking for troubled spots…

Cut 14 (07) “…the field.”
