Good morning! I hope you got your Tuesday started off on the right foot...I know Aroldis Chapman sure did! But first, your weather update...
Flash flooding caused some problems for a few areas in the tri-state, but Meteorologist Katy Morgan is saying that the system to blame will be making its way out today. There is a slight chance for an afternoon shower but other than that, expect mostly cloudy skies for parts of the day and highs in the mid-70's.
Everyone knows Aroldis Chapman has one heck of an arm, but the Reds pitcher apparently has a pretty big lead foot, too! Grove City PD clocked Chapman going 93 mph on northbound I-71 early this morning, where they then discovered he was also driving on a suspended license. Chapman was arrested but quickly released after posting a ten percent bond. Dan Wells will have more on our pitching (NASCAR potential?) all-star starting at 4:30 a.m.
Well hopefully Kentucky voters won't be doing 93 mph as they head to the polls today to vote in the state primary. Election officials are expecting most of the action to be in Northern Kentucky where nine candidates are hoping to fill the congressional seat vacated by Geoff Davis. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. Brad Underwood will be live in Lakeside Park with more on this year's election all morning long.
