of blocks away from the original scene. police arrived on scene to try to administer cpr to the victim. that's when the riot broke out. and that's when they started injuring that officer. >> the public's right to demonstrate, that's fine. that's the american way. but when it reaches the point where the police are coming in to help a victim and they start receiving bottles and damaging our cars and then an officer gets hit in the head while he is trying to save a potential victim, there's a problem there. >> reporter: and so that hospital -- i should say that officer went to the hospital and was treated for his injuries. police out here on the scene were helped by surrounding agencies. more than 100 officers showed up from surrounding cities to help out with this riot. one person was arrested. live in salinas, kiet do, kpix 5. >> at least one city council member is calling for a federal investigation as well as the formation of a citizen review board. 6:32.

macarthur maze. your going to be waiting for at least 20 minutes. maybe 20, 25 minutes to get you on the bay bridge. also, these delays continue to grow and i mentioned about a six mile backup through sunol southbound 680 approaching andrade road. we had a gravel spill. the super crews won't get there for about 15 minutes estimated time around 6:45. they haven't closed any lanes because of this. they are just kind of monitoring traffic keeping it extra slow in the area to avoid any cracked windshields, bigger problems. that dirt and gravel probably all over the roadway so the delays are as far back as pleasanton and here's a live look outside kind of foggy this morning across the san mateo bridge. happening later tonight, southbound 280 closure, beginning in san francisco. kpix 5's anne makovec joins us live there with the details on how to get around it. >> reporter: they have been trying to get the word out. you can see three different signs here on this corner on sixth and brannon just from our vantage point now. they have an electronic sign

>> no. >> reporter: during this closure they are going to replace a bridge hinge that will make the roadway safer in an earthquake and there are two more bridge hinges to replace leading to northbound closures of 280 coming up within the next few months one over the 4th of july holiday and once over labor day weekend. but we'll talk about those closures when we get a little closer to them. right now, we're talking this weekend southbound 280 here in san francisco. live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> one holiday at a time. thank you. an east bay ice cream vendor is suspected of selling drugs out of his truck. the cell phone photo shows 62- year-old kelly brown from oakley being arrested at a gas station in brentwood yesterday. brown is a vendor for kelly's ice cream. police caught up with him at an arco on balfour. they started their investigation after someone reported an ice cream man tried to sell drugs. >> 52 years old last person you would think would do a thing like that. glad they caught him. >> i mean, the ice cream man
