Overnight: Homeowner Finds Alligator In His Huntsville Backyard

Overnight: Homeowner Finds Alligator In His Huntsville Backyard

The look on your face is the same one that was on mine when I saw the initial report overnight. An alligator in someone's backyard. As you can see, he's not a big guy, but imagine finding a gator in your backyard! Wait til you hear what the homeowner has to say. Lauren Morrison has that from our Alert Center, starting at 5:00 a.m. You have to see this!

In other news, police officers are on alert now that there's been another report of a man trying to lure a child into his car or truck. A bus driver reported an incident yesterday. Here's more on that

We have even more at 5:32.

Yesterday, we pinpointed some of the differences between charter schools and traditional public schools, based on what they're seeing in Metro Nashville. This morning, Tiani Jones talks with parents there to get their take.

And I got rained on this morning on the way into work again. Is there a black cloud over my head or what? Meteorologist David Ernst says get used to it. There's more rain on the way through the weekend. Check out his Weather On The Tens.

There's more to tell you. Margo and I will do that over the next two hours on WAFF 48 News Today. Join us!
