started when ryan bolinger pulls up next to another officer on a traffic stop along merle hay road and blocks him in. bolinger then gets out of his vehicle and moves towards the car officer miller is sitting in. chief dana wingert says miller feared for her safety and handled it the way any reasonable person would in that situation. >> we are running, we are running. shot fired. chief wingert: in this case, officer miller felt trapped in that vehicle, as he is right at the drivers door. that is generally not something that happens to a police officer, not something we're usually faced with and certainly not something we expect. elizabeth: officer miller has been cleared to return to the department but is still on paid personal leave. shaina: the jury in the pete polson trial will be back today for a third day of deliberations at the polk county courthouse. polson is facing nine charges, including attempted murder after a shooting spree in pleasant hill last november when he shot
at three people, injuring two of them. he says he was high on meth at the time and didn't know what he was doing. we asked a jury expert if that might be why its taking so long to come up with a verdict. bob rigg: keep in mind the verdict has to be unanimous and trying to get 12 people to agree on anything is pretty difficult anymore. shaina: the jury asked the judge five questions tuesday about the verdict. we'll continue to watch this trial until a verdict is reached. we'll also be watching for a verdict today in the federal trial of two former 20-12 ron paul for president campaign aides. jurors got the case tuesday. jesse benton and dmitri kesari are accused of making secret payments to former republican iowa state senator kent sorenson. sorenson switched his allegiance from the michele bachmann campaign to ron paul's just before the 2012 iowa caucuses. elizabeth: a newton man is behind bars this morning after police say he tried to kill several people with his car. 50-year-old john britton is charged with attempted murder,

desperate need of leadership. he said he would run for speaker, but only if his republican colleagues embrace him by week's end as the consensus candidate. ryan also wants to make it more difficult to overthrow a sitting speaker. elizabeth: news around iowa, some funny money is being passed in one iowa town. mason city police say they have had multiple fake bills pop up just this week. they appear to be $20 bills but the watercolor marks don't match, the margins appear to be wrong, and the picture of the white house was printed upside down. police say the cases all appear to be linked because the serial numbers on the bills are the same. look for a bill banning smoking in iowa casinos to come up again this next legislative session. democratic state senator wally horn says he will introduce a bill to offer guidelines for a smoke-free casino. he is chairman of a committee that examines casino licensing in iowa, and they met tuesday to hear testimony on casino revenues and the iowa racing and gaming commission.

elizabeth: the cubs just can't seem to get a win. shaina: we were hoping eric could bring them some good luck. we posted some things outside wrigley field before the game started. but even his cheers weren't enough to help the cubs beat the mets. new york bested chicago 5-2 to take the series lead, 3 games to nothing. game 4 is tonight in chicago at 7. it is a must-win for the cubs if they want to stay in the game. elizabeth: there is still a chance. sports director andy garman is also at wrigley covering the game. he posted last night that a mets fan walked out chanting "lets go mets", while flipping off everyone in sight, reinforcing every possible new york stereotype. despite those fans, we will wish thae cubs good luck. shaina: some cubs fans are hoping a new haircut will bring good luck.
out the arrieta cut. it even features a beard. i guess a real beard on the back of your head. barber miguel rosas has set up a temporary shop in the lobby of the acme hotel, and he's getting a lot of requests. elizabeth: at least it is not a tattoo. still just a great way to show your devotion. we've been saying too that it's "back to the future" day, the movie predicted that the cubs win the world series this year. guess that remains to be seen. some other things from the film made it 26 years ago have come true. we do have google glasses, videoconferencing israel and when marty has a fight with his boss, everyone remembers the hover board. several companies have ted making them that works on a particular type of surface.
