Hung Jury On Sioux City Bar Fight

 A hung jury was declared Monday in the involuntary manslaughter case of Brad Gregg. The announcement came after four days of deliberations. Gregg also was charged with assault without intent to cause serious injury.

Prosecutors can retry Gregg on the charges. Gregg's attorney, Mike Williams, says he is disappointed jurors did not acquit Gregg but respects their decision.
