Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall.  Here are the stories we’re working on for WBRC FOX6 News this evening.
 
Governor Bentley
Governor Robert Bentley made his first public comments today since his wife filed for divorce Friday. The governor said it is a private matter and he will not comment on it. However, when asked about calls for an investigation into his possible misuse of state property, he flatly denied any wrongdoing. We’ll have reaction on WBRC FOX6 News at 5 p.m.
 
Suspect in UA sexual assault
More women have come forward in Tuscaloosa saying they had contact with 29-year-old Joseph Christopher Spota. He’s the man accused of sexually assaulting a UA co-ed after posing as a driver for a free campus ride service. Investigators say as many as nine women may have been approached by the suspect. We’ll have the latest on the investigation on FOX6 News.
 
Uptown open container policy
Birmingham’s Uptown entertainment district will now permanently allow open containers of alcoholic beverages within the district. We’ll have reaction from customers and business owners.
