A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
The Kobe Bryant case has collapsed.
Prosecutors say they had no choice but to drop the sexual
assault charge against the NBA star because the alleged victim
could no longer participate.
With the parents of the 20-year-old accuser looking on, District
Judge Terry Ruckriegle threw out the case under a deal that means
no charges will be refiled.
District Attorney Mark Hurlbert told the judge that prosecutors
filed a motion to dismiss the case based on the fact the victim is
unable to go forward.
Bryant still faces a federal civil lawsuit filed by the accuser
that seeks unspecified damages.
