Arrest made in case of body found in ditch

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

It should be an interesting show for you this morning. We'll take you LIVE to Alex Box Stadium for opening day. We'll talk with LSU head coach Paul Mainieri and the voice of the Tigers, Jim Hawthorne. We'll also bring one of the best professional eaters in the business into the studio.  Baton Rouge's Adrian Morgan has a big King Cake eating contest on the horizon, so we'll put him to the test for a little practice. Before you get on the roads today, take a look at our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras to see if there are any problems that could delay you. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
