    DENISON, TX -- "I recycle,” said Vincent Shores, Denison resident. “Pretty much anything I have in the house that's recyclable, I recycle it.” Recycling hasn't always been an option for people who live in Denison, but last year the city started a new program that offers curbside pick-up. "I just need about two or three more bins actually,” said Shores. “I have to borrow my neighbor's." "I love it,” said Tammy Ford of Denison, “I would have never done it if it wasn't right at my curb side, I...More >>

POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, OK -- Police have arrested an Oklahoma man for allegedly killing his step-father in an unusual way during an argument just days before Christmas.  

Authorities say he killed his stepfather with an "atomic wedgie."  

"I can't imagine how you do that to your step-father.  Choke him with his underwear,"  said Peggy Springer, concerned resident.

33-year-old Brad Davis is under arrest for taking a high school prank to a deadly level.

Investigators say Davis and his 58-year-old step-father, Denver St. Clair, were drinking together inside the family home a few days before Christmas.  

According to the police affidavit, tempers flared when "St. Clair began speaking ill of Davis' mother" and a fight broke out.

Davis claims his step-father swung first,  but the domestic dispute intensified when Davis knocked his stepfather unconscious, grabbed his underwear and gave him an "atomic wedgie."

"His underwear was pulled up over his head and the elastic band was around his throat," said Jimmy Brewer, Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office.  

The medical examiner reports the cause of death was a combination of blunt force trauma and asphyxiation.

"And with the blunt force trauma, that's a whole other issue too. One of the two, either or, it was bad," said Brewer.

After the fight, Davis called 911 to report what happened, but police believe he tampered with the crime scene to make it look like he killed St. Clair in self-defense.  

"People knew him, and then to be killed like that is just outrageous. I mean, it's just like something you can't even imagine," Springer said.    

Before that fight, authorities say Brad Davis had texted a friend saying he was going to hurt his step-father because  "he had nothing to lose." 

He is currently being held in jail, without bond.
