Bryan man arrested on federal charges after allegedly threatening to burn down TV station

A Bryan man who spent nearly three months on the run is due in federal court Friday after he allegedly threatened to split open the skull of a local TV station manager and burn the building to the ground.
Jason Eric Bewley, who was arrested in North Carolina, is facing two charges of transmitting threats through interstate communications after prosecutors say he harassed general manager Mike Wright of KBTX, a CBS affiliate in Bryan.
“It’s too bad you’re a dead man walking,” Bewley wrote in an email last year, according to federal court filings. “I will split your skull open Mike Wright KBTX.”
A month later, Bewley allegedly called the station with an obscenity-laced tirade, threatening to burn the building to the ground.

Mexicans in Houston are hopeful with presidential outcome back home

Mexicans in Houston welcomed the news Monday of the landslide election of a populist to become Mexico’s newest president, as they expressed disgust with the corruption scandals of the ruling political party.
Mexico’s new president-elect is former Mexico City mayor Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who unseating candidates fielded by President Enrique Peña Nieto and his unpopular Institutional Revolutionary Party in nationwide elections held Sunday. The PRI, which has dominated Mexican politics for 70 years, has been tarnished with numerous scandals of corruption by party officials in powerful government posts.
“It’s excellent that Obrador won the election,” said Jose Carlos Pretelin.
