Galveston County S.O. releases name of Bolivar drowning victim

Rudy Guzman, 31, of Houston, had been fishing and drinking with friends, according to Capt. Barry Cook with the Galveston County Sheriff's Office.

He tried several times to go swimming and told friends he'd gone swimming in the area of Rollover Pass in the past. According to Capt. Cook, investigators can't say Guzman was intoxicated.

He jumped into the water at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Two friends reported seeing Guzman treading water but then lost sight of him and called 911.

Someone who was fishing spotted the body Sunday evening.

A spokesperson for the Coast Guard said the 31-year old man was intoxicated when he jumped into the water around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Two friends with him reported seeing the man treading water, but lost sight of him and called 911.  

"It was really, really rough that night. The current, the tide had just shifted," Rick Ferguson said.

He was fishing nearby when the man jumped and his friends let people know someone was in the water.  

"By the time we got down here one of his buddies had already walked across so that the last time that he saw him was on this side, going underneath the bridge," Ferguson said. "By the time he got to the other side they had lost sight of him."  

The spokesperson said rescue crews searched for the man using helicopters and boats, but were unable to send in a dive team due to strong currents. Crews called off the search at 11:30 a.m. Saturday.  

Officers said Sunday evening, someone fishing called the Galveston County Sheriff's Office after spotting the body near the area.

Reporter in Alaska utters obscenity, quits job on air, in support of marijuana reform


A local TV news reporter in Anchorage, Alaska quit her job Sunday night in dramatic fashion - delivering the news live on the air and dropping an F-bomb for good measure.

Click here for edited version of reporter's surprise statement

Charlo Greene, a reporter for CBS affiliate KTVA, was doing a report on efforts to legalize marijuana in the state when she abruptly revealed that she was the owner of the Alaskan Cannabis Club, a group that connects medical marijuana patients with suppliers.

"Now everything you heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska," she said.

"And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f**k it, I quit."

Greene then walked off the set, leaving a startled news anchor struggling to find words at the news desk. "Alright we apologize for that," the anchor said. "We'll... we'll be right back."

The station later tweeted an apology:

KTVA 11 News @ktva

Viewers, we sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.
