6:06 pm
that led to that stabbing. >> reporter: we're learning more about what surrounded this stabbing incident. we are told by the promoter of badlands, which a bar here in midtown sacramento behind us, that spencer stone was mere with a group of friends, in fact at one point recognized, he was called up on the stage, cheered and applauded as a hometown hero. it was a celebratory occasion. we're told by the promoter of badlands and, in fact, by sacramento police that is when the group of friends and spencer stone went outside that they encountered a second group of people. there was some sort of argument in a parking lot that led to the fight and the stabbing that you are seeing here in surveillance video. so it was not that this was one group that came from the bar. in fact, spencer stone encountered this second group of people. what's interesting in the video is it appears he got involved defending a woman who was punched in the face by one of the eventual stabbing suspects. but as you will see here in a second piece of surveillance video released last night by police, that same woman who appeared to be punched in the face climbed into a waiting car
6:07 pm
with the suspects and drove away. so sacramento police say that woman was not part of spencer stone's original group. they are still looking for the two stabbing suspects as well as the getaway driver of that toyota camera as well as the woman who climbed into the car, as well. so still a lot of moving parts as police are trying to sort out what led to this fight. they are not sure. but they say it is clear that this was not some sort of terrorist attack. they say that spencer stone was not specifically targeted. as you said, he has been upgraded to fair condition and was in fact interviewed by sacramento police earlier last night. in sacramento, nick janes, kpix 5. governor brown signed a series of business today regulating medical marijuana. the bill also create the first- ever statewide licensing and operating ruse for marijuana -- rules for marijuana growers. the legislation outlines pot growers' rights and allows local governments to ban or tax marijuana-related businesses. the state will begin issuing licenses in 2018. governor brown also signed

6:09 pm
credits in 2014. >> that seems like it's a excessive amount of time. >> reporter: real estate attorney michael montgomery ao says hoas are supposed to respond to applications for solar within 45 days. >> having no policy in place could be indicative that they are a little behind the times. >> reporter: he says that any policy that is implemented must be reasonable. but hoas can lay down ground rules like where the panels cab be placed what kind -- can be placed, what kind and even preferred vendors so none of those rules can add more than $1,000 to the cost of the project. projects most agree are good for the environment. >> public policy of the state is to encourage it so i think most associations should be following that lead. >> reporter: his hoa says it is. in an email the peach tree association says they encourage solar. they just needed time to develop a policy. and thanks to drescher, they have. although it does still need to go up for a vote, a year late for him, but maybe just in time for everyone else. >> hopefully, the next more
