Las Vegas morning update for Friday, August 25th — VIDEO

Here are your Friday morning headlines:

1. The Mayweather-McGregor fight is tomorrow night, and airport officials are bracing for an influx of private jets. Private plane traffic usually jumps during major fight weekends, so this weekend pilots and plane owners are being asked to make reservations. Officials are hoping to avoid the traffic issues experienced during the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight when a taxiway had to be converted into a makeshift parking lot.

2. The driver arrested in the fatal crash that killed a Shadow Ridge student in February was sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison on Thursday. David Fensch pleaded guilty to DUI resulting in death in June, after admitting to police he had taken Xanax and consumed “four drinks” of Captain Morgan rum before plowing into the back of 16-year-old Jaelan Fajardo’s car. Fensch had 4 previous DUIs.

3. The man arrested after attacking a mannequin with a hammer downtown last year, was ordered to spend eight to 20 years behind bars on Thursday. Shane Schindler pleaded guilty to attempted murder in June, after police set up the mannaquin as a decoy to look like a sleeping homeless man. Detectives linked the attack to the deaths of two homeless men who were attacked while sleeping in the same area, but did not file charges.
