UNDATED (AP) — President Donald Trump is blasting a federal district judge in Hawaii for halting what Trump is calling a "watered-down version" of his temporary travel ban. Trump told supporters at a rally in Nashville, Tennessee, tonight that the ruling is "unprecedented judicial overreach" and "makes us look weak." He says he's going to fight the decision and take it all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary. And he says, "We're going to win."

WACO, Texas (AP) — A former soldier from Texas is being accused of making threats to go on a shooting rampage at Fort Hood. A federal grand jury has indicted Thomas Chestnut. He's jailed pending a March 22 detention hearing. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.

The 74-year-old, who's in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, headed the nation's largest sheriff's department for 15 years before resigning in 2014 as the scandal grew.
