Noble, OK – Okla. troopers say rifle pointed at helicopter
NOBLE, Okla. (AP) The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says someone pointed a rifle at an Oklahoma National Guard helicopter that was helping battle a fire in Cleveland County.
Trooper Betsy Randolph said the incident occurred about 4:40 p.m. Thursday in Noble. Randolph says a Blackhawk helicopter equipped with a bucket was picking up water at a pond near 48th Street and Etowah Road when the pilot noticed a man on an all-terrain vehicle pointing a rifle at the aircraft.
That is how long it took the Tulsa City Council to over-ride Mayor Bartlett's veto last night. The mayor had vetoed a ballot question that called for a vote on a change of government to a City Manager form with a weak mayor.
City Councilor Roscoe Turner was the force behind the proposal. He denied it was a council power grab.
The council voted 8-to-one to over-ride the veto. G-T Bynum was the lone no vote.
