$7,500 Reward Offered For Info on Highland Park Threats: The reward comes a day after school officials found another threatening note on campus, and two days after .22 shells were found. But: only $7,500? What’s that, like a week’s allowance for a Highland Park kid?

Garland Officer Fired After Firing 41 Shots at Suspect: Patrick Tuter was fired Thursday after Garland Police determined that he shot at a suspect 41 times while pursuing him in his police car, hitting Michael Vincent Allen three times and eventually killing him. The incident occurred in August, but somehow took six months to figure out whether shooting at a man 41 times was “excessive.”

North Texas Man Joins the War on Budweiser: Michael Seidenstein likes his Michelob Ultra the same way everyone else does: watery, with a dash of alcohol. That’s why he filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Anheuser-Busch InBev this week, citing that company’s recent admittance to watering down its Budweiser and Michelob products. He’s seeking $5 million in damages, or roughly 833,333 six-packs of Ultra, which is juuuuust enough to make you forget you were drinking Michelob Ultra.
