Meteorologist Katy Morgan is saying that we can expect mostly sunny skies today with highs in the low 80s.
Attention Kentucky drivers: If you plan on taking I-75N for your morning commute, you might want to give yourself a little extra time. An accident involving a semi-truck carrying thousands of gallons of Hungry Jack Syrup has made for a sticky situation at the northbound Buttermilk Pike exit. As of 3 AM, the left two lanes at Buttermilk are still closed while crews work to clean up the mess. Hopefully by the time you head out the door things will be cleared, but I still wanted to give you a heads-up just in case!
A domestic dispute in Lawerenceburg has evolved into a stand-off with police. When officers responded to the 911 call at a house downtown, they encountered a man holding them off with people inside the house. We have confirmed that shots have been exchanged between the man and the officers. Dan Wells will be live this morning monitoring the situation.
Crews are putting the finishing touches the "Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields" this morning for a big ribbon cutting ceremony this weekend. Brad Underwood will be live in Fairfield with more on this story at 5 AM.
It's adios, Ochocinco when it comes to the New England Patriots. The former Bengal and realty TV star has been dropped from the team after just one season. I wonder what he's going to get himself into now? The list is getting limited with soccer, bull riding and NASCAR already being crossed off.
It was a perfect night to be at Great American Ball Park but unfortunately, Aroldis Chapman's streak came to an end. Michael McKenry drove in the first earned run allowed by Chapman with an RBI double in the 10th inning on Thursday night, rallying the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
