How a burn ban and singing 'Happy Birthday' turned into a trip to jail

 It's been a long four years for Ross Richardson. It started when he burned illegally during a winter ban. All that has culminated with him allegedly attacking a county commissioner because he wouldn't be at church to celebrate his birthday. At 6, we explain why something as simple as a burn ban has put a Grapeland man in jail with a $2.1 million bond.

 A Trinity County constable is back to work after an inmate jumped out of his vehicle, causing a two-vehicle wreck with a deputy. Cheyenne Simpson speaks to an eyewitness and she'll bring you that report at 6.
