CMPD readies for ACC Championship game uptown

Channel 9 spoke with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department ahead of another major event in Charlotte, which is the ACC Championship game where the University of North Carolina takes on Clemson University on Saturday at the Bank of America Stadium in uptown.

After the terror attacks in Paris, police declared the Carolina Panthers game against the Washington Redskins and the Novant Health Thanksgiving Parade as extraordinary events, which means extra security.
Police have not said if the ACC Championship will also qualify but there will be more patrols.
“That’s what has forced us for the foreseeable future,” Deputy Chief Jeff Estes said. “That’s the position we are in.”
Police have authority to search suspicious bags or packages such as backpacks and all weapons and masks are banned during an extraordinary event.

Lemansky was cited about 4:30 p.m. Monday at a home where she was visiting friends, Cary Police Capt. Randall Rhyne said. She told police her residence is in South Daytona.

Lemansky had her two dogs with her, and animal control officers said the dog who had been duct-taped - Brown - did not show signs of hair loss where the tape had been. Officers said both dogs were well cared for and Lemansky was allowed to keep them with her.

Backlash over the photo was overwhelming in Florida.

South Daytona Police Department Chief Ron Wright said the overwhelming response slowed down their investigation.
