Is Charlotte serious about Olympics?

Hello again friends, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom. 

Tonight at 11:00PM—are Charlotte city leaders really serious about bidding for the Olympic games?  Councilman James Mitchell says they intend to investigate what it takes to put the Queen City on the list of possible cities for the 2020 games.  Mitchell and other officials are headed to London, England this weekend.  London hosts the Olympics this summer.

Neighbors say a Weddington man was abusing animals by leaving a cage full of puppies in the hot sun to sell.  That man tonight tells us his dogs are healthy and he has papers from the vet to prove it.  He also says the controversy isn't about animals, it's about his land.  We'll explain.

Mecklenburg property owners may get a tax break, but that's not sitting well with some at Lake Norman.  The recent revaluation hit the lake area hard.  One man says his business property has doubled and is now valued at $3 million.  He says the new value means he'll never be able to sell.

And, you've got to see the video of the night as a man falls out of a window as a reporter is doing a live shot for the local news.
