  • Road-rage incident spills out on highway

    STUART, Flo. – (WPTV) — The video is disappointing to watch. Recorded by another driver Wednesday afternoon, it shows two vehicles – a car and a minivan – heading down Kanner Highway in Stuart. We don’t see what leads up to it, but the car appears to be driving slowly in front of the minivan – even jumping in front of the van when the driver tries to change lanes. The two cars get to the intersection of U.S. 1 […]

    Surveillance footage from the Florida high school where 17 people were fatally shot and more than a dozen others wounded was not shown live, as responding officers initially thought. It was on a 26-minute delay, leading police to brace for a shootout when the gunman was actually long gone, Coral Springs Police Capt.

    WASHINGTON – EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s travel expenditures are being looked at by House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, according to a letter from the committee dated Thursday. The committee chairman asks Pruitt to provide various documents related to his travels, following reports that Pruitt has traveled first class on multiple business-related trips. “Clearly, federal regulations prohibit a blanket waiver to fly first class except to accommodate disabilities or special needs.

  • Trump’s note card for Parkland shooting discussion: ‘I hear you’

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump heard emotional stories Wednesday from people affected by the nation’s deadliest school shootings, and it appears he had an assist in responding to some of the powerful testimony. In a photo from the event taken by Getty Images photographer Chip Somodevilla, the President is holding a piece of White House stationery with five discussion points written in black marker. The visible points include prompts such as “1. What would you most want me to […]

  • Trending YouTube video calls Florida school shooting survivor an ‘actor’ — That’s a lie

    A top trending video on YouTube Wednesday suggested an outspoken survivor of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is an actor.
