Lawyers: Henderson Resident a Government 'Scapegoat' in BP Spill

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Two men who worked for BP during the 2010 Gulf oil spill disaster have been charged with manslaughter and a third with lying to federal investigators, according to indictments made public Thursday, hours after BP announced it was paying $4.5 billion in a settlement with the U.S. government over the disaster.

A federal indictment unsealed in New Orleans claims BP well site leaders Robert Kaluza, 62, of Henderson and Donald Vidrine, 65, of Lafayette, La., acted negligently in their supervision of key safety tests performed on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig before the explosion killed 11 workers in April 2010. The indictment says Kaluza and Vidrine failed to phone engineers onshore to alert them of problems in the drilling operation.

Police ID Suspect from Shooting

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Henderson Police have identified the suspect involved in Wednesday's officer-involved shooting.

According to police, at about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, Jake Goldsborough, 36, aimed what officers thought was a gun at police, during an incident at an Albertsons grocery store near Lake Mead Drive and Boulder Highway. Officers shot him, and he is still in critical condition at Sunrise Hospital.

Because Goldsborough is still in the hospital, he has been proxy booked on three counts of assault with a deadly weapon Thursday afternoon. Goldsborough has arrest records in Nevada, California and Washington.

Police are still trying to find out why the suspect was in the bathroom with a pellet gun painted to look like a semi-automatic weapon.

An employee at the Albertson's grocery store on Boulder Highway called 911 about 3:35 p.m. Wednesday after walking into a bathroom and being confronted by a man holding a handgun.

I-Team: City Auditors Find Waste in Henderson, Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- Inventory and warehousing might inspire yawns, but there's a lot of wasted taxpayer dollars when it comes to those two areas of government.

The I-Team has learned of waste within the cities of Las Vegas and Henderson and what's being done to fix it.

Traffic signals and equipment keep Las Vegas moving, so it would be easy to think the city would keep these expensive items in top shape.

But city investigators found out Las Vegas keeps their equipment as organized as a teenaged boy cleaning up his room.

Boxes were so disorganized and water stained, investigators couldn't tell how damaged the equipment inside was.

Deputy City Manager Orlando Sanchez said the messy issue has been corrected, including the access points to the gates.

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Six Henderson teens have been arrested in connection with a vandalism spree that caused at least 23 incidents of damage to cars in the past few weeks. Police said the teens referred to the vandalism as "missions."

Brothers Brandon Sepe and Bryce Sepe, both 18, were booked into Henderson Detention Center Friday on numerous counts of throwing substances at cars. Four 17-year-old boys were booked into Clark County Juvenile Detention Center on the same misdemeanor and gross charges. Two of those boys also face petty larceny charges. A 16-year-old girl was also booked into the juvenile facility on conspiracy to commit petty larceny.

According to Henderson Police, the teens were caught as they attempted to steal marbles from a Wal-Mart store. Police said the teens were using a slingshot to shoot marbles and paintballs at vehicles. The damage to the vehicles ranged from $150 to $1,500.
