A disciplinary hearing is underway this week to determine if a St. Louis police suspended for allegedly assaulting a suspect should lose his job or be reinstated.

The incident happened at the Lumiere Place Casino last July. Officer Charles Proctor is accused of using excessive force while arresting trespassing suspect Jermaine Lacy.

Police department lawyer, Jessica Liss is arguing that Proctor used excessive force, racial slurs and obscenities during the arrest.

Proctor's lawyer, Chet Pleban, says Lacy faked his injuries and just wants to profit from a police brutality lawsuit he has filed.

Lacy is expected to testify Tuesday.

St. Louis drivers could soon save a little time at the gas pump, thanks to an old idea that's brand new again. Gas pump nozzles with clumsy, plastic sleeves are being replaced with old-fashioned, sleeveless models. That’s because newer cars are designed to trap the fumes, making the plastic covers unnecessary.

New gas stations can use the traditional nozzles now. Older stations can switch starting March 15th. Gas customers at a new station on Manchester Road say the sleeveless pump nozzles are a lot easier to use.

Pacific, Missouri-based Husky Corporation is making the change easy and inexpensive for station owners. The company's EZ Connect nozzles can replace existing nozzles in a matter of minutes, meaning stations won't have to shut down pumps for an extended period of time.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources had planned to hold a meeting in St. Louis on Tuesday about the gas pump change. But the meeting has been cancelled because of the winter storm in central Missouri.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Debate has stalled in the Missouri Senate on legislation that Democrats say is part of the state's "war on labor."

Senators stayed late Monday night to debate SB29, legislation that would bar public-sector unions from deducting dues out of employee paychecks.

Republican supporters say the legislation would give public employees the choice of how they want their dues spent. But Democrats blocked a vote on the measure, arguing it would hurt organized labor.

The measure would also require union members to annually give consent for their dues to be spent on political contributions. It would not apply to unions representing "first responders," such as police or firefighters.

The Senate passed a similar measure two years ago, but it died in the House.

Residents in the South Roxana, Illinois area can relax now, but many were on edge Monday evening. That's because of a loud boom that rattled windows in the area just before 10:00 p.m.

Some residents had expressed concern because it came from the Wood River Refinery.

Officials at the Conoco Phillips Refinery say there's no cause for concern. The boom was the result of a normal steam pressure release. Officials say it was loud, but harmless.

When the Ellisville City Council members meet Wednesday, they're expected to levy charges against Mayor Adam Paul that range from disclosing employee salaries to using city resources to help a campaign contributor, and drinking on the job.

The 11 page resolution calling for Paul’s removal was drawn up by City Attorney Paul Martin after the council voted 5-2 for impeachment proceedings. Martin told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the mayor's improprieties began right after he took office last April.

That's also when Paul began officially fighting with most council members over a controversial Walmart TIF. The TIF passed, but is now tied up in court.

The impeachment drive follows an effort by some residents to get council members who'd supported the TIF recalled from office. That effort fell flat when a St. Louis County judge ruled that the city's recall provisions were unconstitutional.

If the council votes to adopt the impeachment resolution at Wednesday night's meeting, Paul would be suspended for 45 days, pending the outcome of an investigation.

They're back in their homes, but residents of an Edwardsville apartment complex have no heat after a gas main rupture Monday afternoon.

Crews were working to move cable and telephone lines hit the Ameren gas line along north Main Street, causing gas to build up under the street and in the basement of the nearby apartment complex. Electricity to that building was disconnected as a precaution.

Crews drilled through the sidewalk to reach the break and cap it. Residents were allowed to return home, but had no gas service.

A major winter storm is moving across the state, and MoDOT has issued a "no travel advisory" in western, northern, and central Missouri.

The highest accumulations are expected anywhere from Kansas City, through Columbia, and up to Kirksville. Up to 13 inches of snow could fall in those areas. MoDOT says everyone should avoid travel unless it is an emergency. Crews need open roads to speed up the removal of snow during and after the storm. Mizzou has announced they will be closed Tuesday in anticipation of the storm.

St. Louis is expected to receive between 1" and 3" of snow.

Could St. Louis host the Summer Olympics for the first time since 1904?

Mayor Francis Slay was one of 35 mayors who received a letter asking if they are interested in assembling a bid for the 2024 games. There is a stumbling block though, St. Louis does not have enough hotel rooms. The host city is required to have 45,000 hotel rooms, but St. Louis has on 38,000.

It is too early to get overly excited, Mayor Slay has meetings planned with CVC before deciding if the city will consider a bid.
