Tulsa, OK – Judge finds probable cause to charge Tulsa officer
TULSA, Okla. (AP) A judge says Tulsa police Officer Travis Ludwig should be bound over for trial on a charge of possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute.
The 37-year-old Ludwig appeared in court Friday before special Tulsa County District Judge Kirsten Pace.
