SUMMARY: The Trinity River Authority is monitoring the Lake Livingston Dam due to potential damage from recent rain and flooding. Although there’s no immediate risk, any failure could severely impact the Greater Houston area. Lake Livingston, the third-largest lake in Texas, holds 185 quadrillion gallons of water and supplies 60% of Houston’s daily water needs. A dam failure would disrupt water supply and pressure for residents across Houston, Harris County, and three surrounding counties. Despite other water sources like Lake Houston, they wouldn’t suffice. Currently, there’s no danger, but the situation remains under review.

A Lake Livingston Dam is now being watched for a “potential failure.”
The Trinity River Authority, which oversees Lake Livingston, the dam and the Trinity River, shared the declaration on Friday.

SUMMARY: Mosqu police officer Brian Hill and his father, Rowette City Marshal Darvin Hill, were arrested and charged following a violent incident. Brian allegedly misused a police database to obtain information about Jason Benjamin, who was accused of stalking Brian's girlfriend and committing arson on Brian's motorcycle. Darvin reportedly used this information to locate and shoot into Benjamin's car. While no one was injured, Darvin faces charges for deadly conduct, and Brian for misuse of official information and providing false statements. Jason Benjamin is charged with stalking and arson. Brian Hill has been placed on administrative leave pending investigations.

Investigators say a frightening escalation involving arson and stalking led a Mesquite police officer and his city marshal father to break the law and target their alleged perpetrator with violence.

SUMMARY: Plano police arrested Uber driver Robert Johnson III, charging him with the aggravated sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl. The incident occurred on July 9th when Johnson, driving for Uber , diverted from the route and assaulted the girl in a parking lot. The child reported the attack the following day to her therapist. Despite Uber's annual driver screenings and Johnson's clean criminal record, the attack highlights vulnerabilities in ride-sharing services. Uber has permanently banned Johnson and is cooperating with police. Authorities encourage extra safety measures, including staying in the back seat and sharing locations. Johnson has been released on bail, and police are investigating potential additional victims.

Police say the girl was alone in the Uber because her mom called for the ride on the Uber Health app designed to take people to and from medical facilities.
