9News Early Edition from Matt Williams: August 19, 2014 - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

Planning commission denies zoning request for Timeout Lounge

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

It's another night and morning of protests in Ferguson, Missouri that included guns, tear gas, stun grenades and Molotov cocktails. What's the endgame as the clashes continue? With that as a backdrop, guess what parish has received the most assault rifles for law enforcement over the last number of years? It's not even close. Plus, it's another big push from law enforcement to keep everybody sober on the streets. Gerron Jordan has the latest. And, you will have another chance to win tickets to the circus.
