NATS OF MAN YELLING

IT'S DIFFICULT TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON IN THIS DARK CELL PHONE VIDEO, BUT IT'S EASY TO *HEAR

CAPE CORAL POLICE ARE TRYING TO ARREST 20 YEAR OLD TRAVIS ROBEY AFTER THEY SAY HE RAN.

HIS FRIEND, COREY MORGAN, IMMEDIATELY PULLED OUT HIS CELL PHONE AND STARTED TO RECORD WHAT HE BELIEVED WAS POLICE BRUTALITY.

THE VIDEO HAS GONE VIRAL.

SOT-COREY MORGAN

I was in fear. I didn't know what to do so I just started to record.

SOMETHING, ONE OFFICER DID NOT AGREE WITH.

Nats

He came up behind us with another guy and started recording us without

our permission.

BUT SGT DANA COSTON WITH CAPE CORAL POLICE EXPLAINS, ACCORDING TO

FLORIDA LAW, POLICE OFFICERS DO NOT HAVE TO BE TOLD WHEN THEY'RE BEING

RECORDED.

Sgt Dana Coston

21:07:33-21:07:40

There's no prohibition in the law that prohibits a person from filming

officers while conducting an arrest.

BUT YOU CAN HEAR AS MORGAN MAKES IT CLEAR HE'S RECORDING.

Nats

My phone is recording in this white pocket right now. Still recording.

Sot- Morgan

21:25:05-21:25:11

I just tried to make it known that that was going on do that I

couldn't be held accountable for anything wrong.

SOT-COSTON

We do have people from time to time will tell us that they are

recording us and that's appreciated but it's not required by law.

21:08:12-21:08:18

COSTON SAYS, AS LONG AS THE PERSON RECORDING DOESN'T INTERFERE WITH POLICE DUTIES, HE'S NOT BREAKING THE LAW.

A RELIEF AND SURPRISE TO MORGAN.

21-29:45-21:29:56

Sot Corey Morgan

I don't think anybody really knows what they can and cannot do because

there's always different laws for different states, different

counties, different area.

ARMED WITH THAT INFORMATION, HE SAYS THERE IS ONE THING HE WOULD'VE

DONE DIFFERENTLY.

Sot Morgan

21:28:26-21:29:32

If I was for sure on the laws I would've video taped with the light on

exactly everything they were doing.

16:23 -: 25

"it's been pure hell." - MOTHER

AND THE HATE HAS ONLY GROWN WORSE.

19:31 -:35 - FATHER

"I would compare him to an animal, but I think that's not fair to animals."

A FAMILY RIPPED A PART BY THIS MAN, WHO THEY CALL A MONSTER.

19:25 -:29 FATHER

"amy made a mistake and that was putting her trust and love in someone who doesn't have an ounce, no understanding of what love is."

DANIEL PROCTOR PLEADED GUILTY EARLIER THIS MONTH TO KILLING HIS EX WIFE, TURNED GIRLFRIEND, 41 YEAR OLD AMY PATTERSON BACK IN 2011.

HE DUMPED HER BODY IN A REMOTE PART OF PINE ISLAND.SHE WAS MISSING FOR A YEAR BEFORE PROCTOR FINALLY LED POLICE TO HER REMAINS.

49:29 -:37 BROTHER

"it is beyond our comprehension how a person could do this to another human being, but clearly it's not beyond Proctor's comprehension.

AMY'S FAMILY WANTED PROCTOR TO GO TO TRIAL, IN HOPES OF POSSIBLY GETTING A LIFE SENTENCE.BUT PROCTOR HAD ALREADY AGREED TO A PLEA DEAL OF 25 YEARS.

BEFORE THE JUDGE ACCEPTED THAT DEAL MONDAY, AMY'S BROTHER MADE HIS CASE.

5:48:11 -:17

"our family has been severely traumatized, emotionally physically and financially by this senseless act of violence.

BUT THE JUDGE TOLD AMY'S FAMILY ACCEPTING THE PLEA IS THE BEST OPTION, AVOIDING THE RISK OF TRIAL

6:17:24 -:30

"we understand what the state has decided and we're gonna stand by it."

BUT ONLY BECAUSE PROCTOR IS CURRENTLY SERVING TWO LIFE SENTENCES IN ALABAMA FOR OTHER CRIMES.

SO HE WILL NEVER BE FREE TO HURT ANOTHER FAMILY AGAIN.

a good thing."

GEIGER SAYS SHE HASNT HAD MUCH ISSUES WITH DRAINAGE.

BUT SOME OF HER NEIGHBORS CANT SAY THE SAME.

SOON, THEY MAY BE GETTING SOME EXTRA HELP FROM THE CITY.

15:54:15-15:54:22

"It's annoying but it's a small price to pay for a much bigger outcome."

CITY LEADERS MAY SPEND 500-THOUSANDS DOLLARS NEAR MCGREGOR AND OLMEDA WAY.

THIS IS FOR EMERGENCY DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS.

AND TO AVOID ANY POTENTIAL TRAGEDY.

JUST LAST YEAR, A FIVE YEAR OLD MADE IT OUT ALIVE NEAR THIS AREA AFTER

BEING SUCKED INTO A DRAIN PIPE.

15;54:45-15:54:53

"If I had a little kid or a little brother or cousin around, I would

be interested in having that sort of thing not happen again."

IT'S UP TO CITY COUNCIL TO APPROVE THE FUNDS AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

IF SO, CREWS CAN INSPECT ALL DRAINS.

THEY CAN REPLACE PIPES THAT ARE CAUSING PROBLEMS.

AND MAKE SURE ONES LIKE THESE ARENT DEEMED DANGEROUS FOR LITTLE CHILDREN.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

ONSHORE FLOW IMPACTS RAIN CHANCES

Widespread showers and thunderstorms will continue rumbling across the interior of the state this evening, though an isolated downpour or storm will still remain possible along the US 41 corridor.

Thanks to a weather feature in the Southeastern United States this week, our winds will hail from the west and southwest late tonight and through Tuesday. This setup is called "onshore flow", and when it happens it alters when we can expect rain in Southwest Florida.

On Tuesday morning, thanks to winds coming from the Gulf of Mexico, we'll have the chance for seeing showers and even a few thunderstorms early in the day. Though many of these areas of rain tend to weaken once they get on land, you'll want to keep this in mind if you're outside early on Tuesday.

Our onshore wind flow pattern will stay in play through Thursday. This means we stand the chance for some rain in the morning each of the next upcoming days, with only isolated chances in the afternoon. In terms of coverage, our afternoon rain chances will be most abundant for communities along and east of I-75.

Temperatures this week look warm and seasonal. Highs are expected in the low 90s through Thursday before jumping back up closer to the mid 90s by Friday.

TROPICAL UPDATE

No tropical cyclones are active in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico. No storm development is expected in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

NATIONAL AMERICAN MISS PAGEANT-BNR-PKG


As a competitive figure skater-

Julia Rowland has gathered quite a bit of of gold, silver and bronze.

But now the Naples teen has something even shinier to add to her collection.

Julia Rowland

14:15 14:18

I did not expect what happened

Yesterday, Julia competed to become the National American Miss Florida Teen Queen -

and she took home the crown.

Her parents were so shocked they didn't even have a camera ready.

Nicola Rowland

25:51 25:56

My husband and I clearly did not expect that we looked at it as a family vacation

It was only her second pageant -

last year she was a semi finalist but fell short of the Florida American Miss title.

Julia

13:48:54

I realized it was a great opportunity to gain confidence and poise and great communication skills

Skills she's used to showing off on the ice -

transferred to the stage.

Julia

20:23 20:39

We perform in front of hundreds of people and I definitely was not nervous when I had to stand up in front of other people:31 of course its different public speaking versus skating:34 but I think having that experience it was not as difficult:39

The teen who is used to training on the ice everyday - will soon be busier than ever -

preparing for the national pageant and a regional figure skating championship -

both this fall.

Julia

21:02

It's going to be very difficult and very very busy schedule but it's all worth it in the end:09

Worth it whether she leaves with a new crown -

or just a new experience.
