was thrown from the vehicle." police told us that driver looked to have "track marks" in their arm. again, they say they also found needles at the scene. katko remote no one has been identified... and there's no telling how long this will be backed up. if you need to go eastbound on 275 through here... you're advised to find another way around. live tonight... ben katko... fox19 now. now to the story we broke last night... a person claiming to be from the group "anonymous"... announcing in a video that the group has obtained.. and released the personal information of dozens of cincinnati police officers. our live, team coverage right now includes the video... its claims... and the response to the release of that information. plus clarity on their claims. mike schell kicks things off live where cincinnati police just happen to be getting public input on crime... mike you're in
