Police purge

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.

Police purge the Belmont neighborhood in northeast Charlotte of 19 alleged drug dealers.  After repeated calls by concerned neighbors, authorities rounded up people who they say were ringleaders in the drug trade.  There are half a dozen more who slipped the net and will be hunted down in the morning.

The Carolina Panthers were back at practice today after the blow-out victory over Arizona in the NFC Championship game.  Several veterans got the day off to rest and recuperate.  Injured linebacker Thomas Davis walked through some drills with his broken arm, but didn’t take part in any contact drills.  Davis had a plate inserted and will most likely play in the Super Bowl with a carbon fiber shell on the forearm.

What’s it like to play in a Super Bowl?  Former Panthers center Jeff Mitchell tells us tonight about his regret after Carolina lost to New England on a field goal in Super Bowl 38. 

Plus, you won’t believe what a local man had to do after betting against the Panthers.  To his credit, he paid off the debt on live television.  After seeing him, you’ll say he’s a better sport than more people.

The city of Newton is under a water boil advisory tonight.  A 12-inch water main broke leaving thousands high and dry.  Schools, courts and businesses were without water today.  Testing is planned for tomorrow to see if it’s safe to drink again.

Please join Eric, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00!
