A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville police officer has been placed on paid administrative leave after being arrested in Florida.
Louisville Metro police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says Lt. Jerald Fifer will remain on leave while an internal investigation is completed.
Fifer, 43, was arrested Thursday near Ruskin, Fla., and charged with false imprisonment, battery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to online jail records. He was being held in the Hillborough County Jail on Friday.
Mitchell says Fifer's arrest followed a domestic dispute, but he did not have details. Messages left for Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Chris Miller and Fifer's listed attorney, James Fifer, were not immediately returned Friday.
