NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Two Tennessee lawmakers pushing a bathroom bill and legislation declaring marriage between a man and a woman have quickly fled their news conference when protesters interrupted it.

Republican Rep. Mark Pody had spoken less than two minutes Wednesday before a protester interrupted, saying, "My marriage is just as good as yours."

A gay couple held hands in the air. A woman's shirt read, "You can pee next to me."

Pody asked if they'd like him to go on. Protesters chanted, "Pull the bill."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville police say new video has caused them to revise their account of a traffic stop that ended with a white officer fatally shooting an armed African-American man.

Police say video obtained Tuesday shows there wasn't an initial physical confrontation between 31-year-old Jocques Scott Clemmons and Officer Josh Lippert after Clemmons ran a stop sign and both exited their cars.

Footage shows Clemmons ran toward Lippert to get around him. Police say previous footage "created the impression" of physical contact.

The new boards are part of the Republican governor's initiative to spin six four-year public universities out of the Tennessee Board of Regents system. Each board will control budgets, tuition and the selection of university presidents.
