Mom attacks bully on school bus

Happy Thursday, neighbors; we hope your day is going well!

Here's some of what we're working on for you in our newsroom this afternoon:

At 4pm in East Texas news, we're going to show you a roller coaster ride that went wrong (with a rider who was only on the roller coaster to overcome a fear of heights!) and we'll also tell you about a mom who was tired of the bullying her teenage son was receiving, so she took matters (whether a good idea or not) into her own hands, starting a fight with the bullies herself! You'll hear from her at 4.

New at 4:30, we'll show the video from a Best Buy store that was robbed by thieves looking for the new iPhone. The was they broke in was quite dramatic! You'll want to see that for yourself.

We'll also tell you about the terrifying experience a family had in Lubbock when their car was stolen with their 2-year-old still inside! The car was found, but the baby had been removed. We'll tell you how it all ended at 4:30.

And at 5, we'll tell you about a condition called "Popcorn Lung," a serious and debilitating respiratory disease that  a Denver man developed. He says he got it by inhaling a chemical used to give microwave popcorn its buttery flavor. His story, new for you at 5.

Also, police in Alabama say a missing teenager and her abductors may be hiding in East Texas. According to a press release from Dothan Police, Ailene Lander, 15, was abducted from a medical facility on Sept. 17. Police believe her abductor is Charles "Dean" Partin, 36, a truck driver, and her stepfather, who was later joined by Julie Bethke. Check that out at 5.

And at 6 we'll show you the latest about the bank robbery in Lindale; police have released a photo of the robber, whose name they say is Anthony Rios.

Also, Bob Hallmark will have a new story about a recently-formed task force trying to come up with a new way to help stray animals in Gregg County. It's been a controversial topic in that area, and we will tell you what Bob found out today...only at 6pm. Don't miss it!

We'll see you soon with these and a nice long list of other stories, as well as the best local weather update available anywhere...just for you.
