Washington convicted of murder

CLEARWATER – It took a jury a couple of hours to find Tisen Washington guilty of first-degree murder in the slaying of cab driver Jack LaGrand, according to a Clearwater police report.

The victim was found shot to death in September 2008, but the case went cold for a number of years until an arrest was made in 2013. LaGrand had picked up Washington in his cab at a Dunedin bar, and LaGrand was later found dead.

Washington was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.

Beachgoer injured by lightning

CLEARWATER – A beachgoer at Sand Key Park was treated for injuries suffered by an indirect lightning strike shortly after 11:30 a.m. on July 24, according to a Clearwater police report. He was taken to Largo Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

At the same time, another lightning fire started a small brush fire in the park. Clearwater Fire and Rescue crews worked both scenes at the same time. A lifeguard was the first to get to the injured person. The lifeguard also reported feeling a tingling sensation in his arm, as he also was close to the strike.
