Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
GAINESVILLE, TX -- A Gainesville man was arrested for littering, when he threw a cigarette butt on the ground on Saturday.
Police say 20-year-old Michael McAfee was reportedly trying to enter a building in the 1100 block of Dodson Street in Gainesville. He then fled when another citizen saw him. That citizen chased him down and called police, but he wasn't in trouble yet -- until police say he threw a cigarette butt on the ground right in front of officers.
After that, the officers arrested him for littering.
