NLRPD: 3 students removed from school after social media threats


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Police in North Little Rock are reportedly investigating threats allegedly made by students on social media.

On Tuesday, Darlene Holmes with North Little Rock School District said three Lakewood Middle School students were removed from school for making threats on social media.

A school resource officer at Lakewood Middle School is said to have been called in to conduct an investigation of an alleged social media threat against staff and students.

"She said she was going to spare a few people and the few people were the ones that were tagged," said 8th grade student William Jennings. "My friend who got suspended, I knew he would never do anything like that but I don't know about the other two girls. We were all very wary."

The investigation is now being handled by North Little Rock police.

State Fair 75th anniversary brings new eats


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - All the bells and whistles are getting pulled out for the 75th anniversary of the Arkansas State Fair.

Especially when it comes to food, the options are getting weirder and wackier.

New foods include spaghetti and meatballs on a stick, or try a fried avocado with a meatball center.

Looking forward to something with more sweet? Try fried peaches and creme or a fried s'more with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

The fair's general manager said this will be the biggest fair yet.

"We put a little extra pizazz into our state entertainment is bigger this year. The carnival is bigger this year, going on through the week, and then the final night, after our final stage show, we are doing an outstanding aerial fireworks show," said Ralph Shoptaw, general manager.

Couples ask Arkansas court to strike marriage ban

Couples ask Arkansas court to strike marriage ban


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A group of gay couples is asking Arkansas' highest court to uphold a judge's ruling striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage, arguing the U.S. Supreme Court is indicating that such bans are unconstitutional by not taking up similar cases.

The couples on Tuesday asked the Arkansas Supreme Court to uphold Pulaski County Judge Chris Piazza's ruling striking down a 2004 constitutional amendment and earlier state law defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

The couples cited the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to reject appeals from five states that sought to prohibit same-sex marriage. They also requested oral arguments before the court.

Piazza's ruling led to 541 gay couples receiving marriage licenses before the decision was suspended by the state Supreme Court.
