we do have a lot of guys that have post-traumatic stress disorder. being able to share your story, i guess it kind of helps you wrap your mind around what did happen over there. just because you've left the military doesn't mean your life is over, because when these guys are coming home, i'm kind of leading and training them, instead of for combat, i'm leading and training them to heal. and if i come away with anything from the wounded warrior project, it's them giving my life back. my name is norbie, and yes, i do suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, but i'm okay. we're back at 4:53. happening today, ford is going to be rolling out the expansion of its bike share program in five bay area cities. this is video from ford's go bike facebook page. this morning's launch will be in san francisco, oakland, also bikes deployed by labor day and

ferry services, as well. crowded routes late to early evening and same thing for san francisco bay ferry, especially if you're trying to get back to vallejo. in fact, they are adding special bus service if they reach capacity on the ferries after the game, so there will be agents at the ferry building helping out. a look at traffic cameras coming up in less than ten. >> thanks. a deputy sheriff in ohio wound up in pursuit of his own car. this is so embarrassing. this starts after he pulled a driver over and the dash cam video is going to show what happened next. >> you reported stolen, man? think somebody stole it? >> i guess so. i thought somebody was playing games with me. >> oh, no. the deputy sprints towards his patrol car as it starts backing up on its own. he caught the car and stopped it, thank goodness, before it hit anything. and then he drove back to the driver that he had already
