Local pastor jailed for crime against a juvenile

Good morning! Today is Tuesday, September 25. This is David Whisenant, filling in for John Carter this week on WBTV News This Morning. We're following a number of stories this morning, gathering new information to share with you when we come on at 4:30 am.

We are learning more about a pastor in Newton who is in jail this morning, accused of a sex offense with a child.

We're also covering a contentious debate in Charlotte where a developer wants to put up a new Walgreen's drug store, but some neighbors say that will mean destroying history.

One of the biggest talkers of the morning is that play from last night's NFL game between Green bay and Seattle. Packer fans are livid, and it's triggering strong talk about the replacement referee issue in the NFL right now. We'll show you the play.

And do you hesitate about getting a flu shot because you just can't stand the thought of that needle? Astrid Martinez has a very interesting story this morning about a less painful way to still get the protection you need.

That's just a sample of the things we're working on for you this morning. We also have the best weather and traffic with Meteorologist Al Conklin and First Alert Traffic reporter Tonya Rivens. I hope you'll join Christine Nelson and me in just a few minutes, from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m. on WBTV.
