Today in history

On this day in 1875, Billy the Kid is arrested for the first time after stealing a basket of laundry.

He later broke out of jail and roamed the American West, eventually earning a reputation as an outlaw and murderer and a rap sheet that allegedly included 21 murders.

Here’s the rest of the story:


Today — Mostly cloudy in the morning then becoming partly cloudy. Breezy. Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the 80s.

Tonight — Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers. Lows in the mid to upper 50s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
