tv Right This Minute KICU April 27, 2012 3:00pm-3:30pm PDT
hello, everyone, i'm beth troutman. it's time for the best videos of the day and of course the stories behind them right this minute. it's a confrontation with police that sounds more like a beer commercial. >> i love you guys so much. >> but see the love turn violent in the back of the cop car. when your plane is landing like this, you know -- >> it's really freaking windy outside. >> the story behind the white-knuckle flight. >> you should give all of these passengers those free mini bottles of like vodka. >> if the website connects hot chicks with rich guys that like to travel. >> you know where this is going? >> now we asked the controversial site's creator, the tough question. >> can i have a rich female take me to paris? does it work the other way around? >> and it may not be the classiest, but it is the loudest. >> that's why i haven't had a
soda on a date in like ten years. >> what happened ten years ago? >> it's time to get things started. steven has our first video. >> when you find yourself in the middle of a busy highway on your knees, you might have had too much to drink, because that's what santa fe, new mexico, police found this guy, 24-year-old miguel luhan. as the police approach, he pops his shirt off too, puts his arms out and has a little message for the police. listen. >> i love you guys! >> i love you guys so much. >> at least he's a happy alleged drunk. >> i don't even think we need to say alleged. the police are saying this man was highly intoxicated. he may have started off loving, but quickly turned to quite the opposite. as they put him in the back of the police car, he's handcuffed, he starts banging his head off the glass, trying to break the window. >> he's hitting on my window trying to break it. >> and he's successful.
>> and he just broke it. >> gosh. >> so not only does he break the window with his head, he wiggles himself out of the car, all the while handcuffed. >> he's a houdini! >> yeah. but here's the thing. there are other police cars following this one. so we get their dash cam video of this guy's daring escape. >> really? >> holy cow. >> he breaks the window, comes out, basically lands on his head, flips around, tries to run away, doesn't get very far and this guy was arrested, charged with assault on an officer, resisting arrest and criminal damage to property. >> was he drinking red bull? >> who knows what this guy was drinking. he was drinking something. >> and he just broke it. ladies and gentlemen, the captain has turned on the fasten seat belt sign because it's really freakin' windy outside. this is in spain.
50 to 60-mile-per-hour winds. the plane kind of comes in sideways and pilots are trained to do this. it's called crabbing. just before they touch down, they need to straighten out because plane wheels only go in one direction. that's one plane. this smaller jet, look at the trouble this guy is having. he gets blown to the side and says abort. he pulls up, hits the thrusters and up he goes. >> why are they letting them land in this? i feel like they should be circling for a while until the winds die down. >> four other flights were diverted from this airport, you're right, beth. imagine what that must have felt like. >> this is absolutely more r ren -- horrendous for the passengers. i would imagine they all peed their pants. >> so they're close to the ground, though, i would be thinking about my exit strategy. i could jump out the window and still survive. >> imagine what it must be like on the left side of that plane,
you come in sideways and you see straight down the runway. >> it would really suck if this was just like your connection. >> and you had to take off again. >> you know what, that's being very religious. take a look at this video we got from our good friends at abc 15 in phoenix. this is from the maricopa county jail in downtown phoenix. >> something tells me they're not supposed to be running around like that. >> they're not supposed to be running around like that. ft a fight broke out monday th jail that included 25 inmates. according to the sheriff, this fight was racially motivated. according to him some mexican mafia inmates want to take over the jail and they issued an order to attack black inmates. the fight starts with just a couple of people and then it gets incredibly rowdy. as the fight erupted, more and more people get involved. after a few minutes of the
fight, guards did come in and try to take control. one of the inmates picked up a mop and tried to use the mop handle as a weapon. this is especially dangerous because the jail in downtown phoenix is a high risk, maximum security jail. after this fight happened, they actually forced a lockdown of the entire third floor and there is 750 inmates on the third floor. >> what's the injury report out of this? >> oddly, no severe injuries were reported from this brawl, but abc 15 spoke to a former inmate who was in the jail at the time that this happened. >> it was horrible. i mean they were basically taking inmates, locking them down for 24 to 72 hours, not letting anybody out. srt coming in doing cell searches for no reason and i was only there four days. >> the other terrifying thing about this report is guards have been confiscating makeshift weapons. tooth brushes with screws in them. look how big they are, they're as big as a dollar bill. a new york bodega employee was arrested and charged with
selling alcohol to a minor, but this video that i found on the "new york daily news" may actually help enclosure hclear . we see an 18-year-old enter the store. he tries to purchase the alcohol, but the employee rejects him. the teenager leaves the store but another man allegedly bought the alcohol, exited the store and handed it off to the teen. after this happens, you see a police officer entering the store to arrest duran. the nypd said he was arrested because even though he didn't sell the alcohol directly to the teenager, he saw someone else buy it for him. but now surveillance video appears to back up the story that he was helping other customers and didn't see the alcohol handoff. >> how did the officer know that the minor had gotten alcohol? >> it is believed that this 18-year-old was working with the nypd at the time. >> i would think the 51-year-old
would be the guy who was in real trouble here. >> well, that man was also charged, but the case was adjourned in contemplation of dismissal. >> did the clerk get any kind of fines or jail time? >> he ended up pleading guilty on the advice of his then lawyer who told him that if he did, he'd just have to pay a $120 fine and be able to go home. we did reach out to the nypd and they said that there is an ongoing investigation. it's a showdown at the speedway, but it's not what you think. >> what is going on? >> it just turns into a full-on brawl. >> what went down to make the dukes go up. and a new website to make sure your fashion is trending. >> they went with almost canadian tuxedo. >> yeah, that's not trending. >> but see how you can make sure

battles at the raceway are supposed to happen on the track, not in the staging area between two guys throwing punches. check this out. this video comes to us from whio in ohio. two guys are duking it out but then it just turns into a full-on brawl. you see the guy in the light-colored t-shirt going after the guy in the blue t-shirt and just throwing hay makers. other people step in and just start punching freely. >> what is going on? >> investigators say that the guy in the light-colored t-shirt told them he started fighting with this guy because he says that guy was responsible for his cousin's death. >> this is like a retribution punch. >> they went up to approach the guy and it started a fight.
two people were cited in this incident. >> but it's so strange that the fight started between this guy in the light-colored t-shirt and somebody he's trying to get back at but then all of these other people get this mob mentality thing going and everybody joins in on this weird fight that they had nothing to do with. one othe toughest tngs about yuray wear, right? >> definitely. today i went with almost canadian tuxedo. >> so close. >> yeah. >> well, there is a clothing line called pimke and they have a new fashion forecast that helps you determine the most in fashion colors possible. they place high definition cameras in the most fashionable cities in europe. they show you in realtime what people are wearing and what colors are most popular. >> that's really interesting. >> they'll show you which colors are trending that particular day, yesterday.

put on some purple. that's how it works. >> or you can say, no, i'm not going to do it because i'm a rebel. that's another way to see it. or you can just download the app and say i want to be woken up with an alarm saying which color is trending tomorrow morning in paris. and you say, oh, i'm going to wear that or i'm going to wear the opposite. >> are there some color that say just don't change with time that people always wear? >> there will be colors that always come back. they demonstrate to the people they knew what was going to be trending so that raises their credibility a lot in being the color specialists if you see what i mean. monday on "right this minute," this is kim. she has such a rare disease that no research is being done but her friend says we've got to do something. that's monday on "right this minute." attractive? like to travel and in the market for a rich dude? then, boy, have we got the website for you. >> do you know where this is

upper body because he does have partial arm limbs and is using that to swim. >> that's incredible. >> that's got to be so tough, though, because the key to swimming is the reach, the reach and the pull. >> it's interesting to me that he can keep up with an -bd uy. >> people can have an amazing life even with a disability. >> everything is about perspective. >> how far along in the challenge is he? >> they don't start this challenge until may the 6th. i'm really eager to know what you guys think about this because it is -- well, watch. >> what if you could travel around the world, stay in five-star resorts, all for free? >> do you know where this is going? >> keep going, yeah. >> on mistravel.com, there are thousands of frequent travelers who hate to travel alone. these generous travelers are doctors, lawyers, bankers, athletes, executives, entrepreneurs and millionaires who are looking to travel with an attractive person like you.
