cleveland cavalier. >> it is a sense of pride for ever. >> reporter: that is because matthew dellavedova is a saint mary's college alum and tonight his coach and former classmates set their warriors allegiances aside. >> i love the warriors. if it wasn't the cavs, i would cheer for the warriors. >> reporter: and came onto cheer on the man they call deli however apologetically. >> sorry, my allegiance is with saint mary. >> i cheer for matt and his team. >> reporter: dellavedova is in his second year as a cavalier. tonight he scored 20 points helping the cavs to their second win in a row over the warriors. >> we will cheer every single minute he is in the ball game and hope he does well for the cavaliers. >> reporter: and, he did. dellavedova didn't disappoint. tonight at the end of the fourth quarter, the entire
stadium was chanting deli as he got ahold of a few loose balls. we will are have to see what he does next game. christin ayers, kpix5. on the other side of the bay, fans packed the park in san francisco to watch the game on several big screen tvs. but in the end, the loss was pretty tough to stomach. game four is thursday night in cleveland. the other bay area sports headline. a historic night for giants rookie pitcher chris heston. he pitched a no-hitter against the mets. >> has it sunk in? what are the emotions? >> there are a lot of emotions going through my mind. to be there and have the opportunity, i'm blessed. i'm looking forward to catching my breath a little bit and celebrating a little bit. >> heck yeah. giants were too excited to spell check. they were so excited they
tweeted sf giants history christ heston. a rattlesnake bit a two- year-old girl in bay point tonight. she was in her backyard and appeared to immediately have an allergic reaction. she was air lifted to the hospital. firefighters said this should serve as a reminder to everyone. >> as it warms up and the animals come out, we want to make sure we have cleared the weeds away from the house for the fire danger and the animals like snakes this time of year. >> the snake was captured and put into a jar. paramedics took the snake to the hospital with the child so they could administer the proper antivenum.

turning to sex. mark, really? just how are they doing this? how are they making water conservation sexy? >> reporter: they are doing it with a new ad campaign. maybe you saw them this week. they started rolling out at some of the muni stations. san francisco says a little innuendo could work now because it has been successful in the past. >> makes you feel oh so right. >> reporter: remember this? in the middle of a dry summer, this plug to save water hit bay area television leaving viewers blushing. and now those dirty dogs at the san francisco public utilities commission are at it again. with this billboard campaign rolling out this week at muni station billboards and on tv. >> this campaign worked and we wanted to use this same provocative theme to get people engaged. >> reporter: these ones racier
than ever. nozzle your hose. go full frontal. >> the direct objective is to get them to save water. >> reporter: san francisco is saves water better than most in the state. are the ad going too far? not in sf. >> it is a little scandalous right? >> no. >> you don't think so? >> no. >> does it make you blush a little bit? >> i don't blush easy. >> reporter: san francisco is on track to save $12 billion of water by the year's end. they hope these ads help but first you have to get the joke. >> yeah, i'm really tuned into innuendo, but i didn't pick up on it honestly. >> reporter: mark kelly, kpix5. >> the city spent $300,000 on this latest ad campaign. brand new cars up in flames
and it was no accident. take a good look at the video betty yu got ahold of tonight. >> reporter: carrying a flashlight in his left hand an axel rant in his right, this man appears to know where he is going and what he wants. he picks up something right before going to the row of chevy volts. it only takes 20 seconds for the first car to go up in flames. >> the rag caught on fire very rapidly. you could see him put something underneath the vehicle. you could see a big flame underneath the vehicle and the car catching on fire. >> reporter: he is now looking at more than $100,000 in damages. >> it is pretty brutal for somebody to light a car on fire. because it is a waste. >> reporter: four cars were burned. the arsonist took off on a

more sense. >> reporter: valasco's mom says her son is mentally ill and police went too far. he was drunk and high on meth and booked for assault with a deadly weapon and for resisting arrest. just in time for the fourth of july, property owners in one bay area county could face hefty fines for illegal fireworks on the property. tonight, maria medina says that is even if someone else sets them off. >> reporter: we see illegal fireworks across the bay area every fourth of july. but many don't seem to care. until now. >> the message is that the county is cracking down. >> reporter: today the santa clara county board of supervisors voted almost unanimously to pass an ordnance that would find property owners for setting off fireworksful that's right. property owners. that means if someone else is lighting fireworks on your property, you, the homeowner will get stuck with the bill. >> these are already crimes. we are just telling people from
now on, one warning is as much as you get. >> reporter: and maybe they will listen now. after a warning the first offense for lighting fireworks was a $350 fine. $700 for the second and a thousand dollars for the third. every year, many property owners were warned by cops to stop, rarely listen. >> i think it is wrong. >> reporter: not everyone agrees. if a kid is committing the crime on someone else's property, their parents should be fined instead. >> it is getting ridiculous. these rules, they keep making about everything. >> reporter: but supervisor dave cortese say some property owners simply know the rules but choose not the follow them. now there are consequences to a crime long overlooked. >> even when property owners are warned, they continue with the same behavior year after year. >> reporter: in san jose, maria medina, kpix5. tonight, new drugs may be on the way to lower cholesterol that work when nothing else does. >> and a california prison escape that is eeriely similar

>> new cholesterol drugs might be on the way. fda experts recommend approval. tomorrow, they will consider a california company's version. cate caugurian says the drugs have shown dramatic results when nothing else works. >> reporter: scott, a single father of three was born with a genetic condition. the disorder floods his blood with dangerously high levels of ldl or bad cholesterol, the danville dad is taking four medications with little result. >> even on a vegan diet, taking

national coalition on healthcare. for many americans, inexpensive statents will do the trick he says. >> it will be a mistake for anyone worried about the cholesterol to take the new drug. that would make healthcare unaffordable for us all. >> reporter: if approved, the drug could be block busters costing the u.s. health system as much as $23 billion a year. in the news room, cate caugurian, kpix5. still so sign of the two cons who broke out of the maximum security prison in up state new york. tonight, the man hunt is centered in an around the town of willboro, 30 miles from where david sweat and richard matt used power tools to break out saturday. more than 400 officers are searching the woods where someone says that he saw two people sneaking around. some officers were seen with weapons drawn near a house. that prison break is similar to one that happened at folsom prison back in 1987.
a convicted killer broke out in a shawshank style escape. as tony lopez tells us, all these years later that killer is still on the run. >> this was the storm train that glen godwin escaped through. >> reporter: they still talk about that day in june of 1987 as if it just happened. former state prison workers jim and joe were there friday morning when glen stewart goodwin made his move crawling through a 1,000-foot long stretch of the prison storm drain and emerging here. slashing down at the rivers edge where an inflatable raft could wary him away. >> he was no dummy. >> reporter: and he obviously had help doing it as many suspect in the recent new york prison escape. godwin's help came from both outside and in. >> we found in the tunnel that godwin went out of, there was white spray painted smiley faces with arrows indicating the direction to go out toward the river. >> reporter: once out, an old
flame would light the rest of his way to freedom. >> and went up the bank and past five tower and across the river and up on the jogging trail. and jogged up to the parking lot where shelly picked him up and they drove off. >> shelly was his wife? >> yes. >> reporter: godwin would run to mexico and be arrested on drug charges and after killing a fellow inmate, the former tool sales man would hammer his way out from behind bars again escaping. he has been in the wind ever since. >> so this is glen godwin. >> reporter: the fbi added him to the ten most wanted fugitives list in 1996 and they would love to show you what he might look like today. glen godwin would be 56 years old. >> we have an age progressed image as well. people change over time. there are certain aspects of
him that would remain the same, especially based on his personality and characteristics. >> reporter: by that, they would mean he was overly turned with his looks and may have had plastic surgery. for now, glen stewart godwin remains nowhere to be found. >> fbi says godwin may be in mexico or central america, but as with any fugitive, anything is possible. it started to rain outside right paul? >> it is. i may never say this as long as i live. it has rained more in june in parts of the bay area than january and may combined. what is going on? there is tropical moisture out there now. kpix5 kpix5 high-def doppler showing a lot of moisture out there. you are receiving rainfall again this week. you will share with the rest of the bay area. another round of rain headed to napa. american canyon, fairfield, vacaville moving to the west.
