4:35 am
night, they had more time to attack democrats. they took aim at hillary clinton but not so much bernie sanders and kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen found that surprising. >> it was very interesting in light of the fact that bernie sanders seems to be doing well in these early states in some of these polls. he is doing as well as or better than hillary clinton. >> she also said that in a debate it's easy to tell who the candidates think is winning. >> you can often tell who is winning or whoever one is afraid of by who they are talking about. when people are attacking donald trump you know he is doing well. and tonight that person was ted cruz. >> but trump is still ahead nationally. a new nbc/wall street journal survey shows trump with 33% support. cruz with 20. we are getting a break this morning. some parts of the bay area got soaked overnight. this is in sausalito and several more storms are in the forecast. plenty of fresh snow in the

[ applause ] >> reporter: in 2007 then governor arnold schwarzenegger gave bart $5.4 million to upgrade its camera system. apparently, it wasn't enough. aside from the trains, bart has cameras on platforms and in station lobbies, cameras in the west oakland lobby capturing the murder suspect running

4:41 am
just got ran over what's going on? >> reporter: in the video you hear donovan tell the officer he doesn't have his identification. we later learned he did but said he was freaked out at the time. although the confrontation starts out calm it escalates after the officer asks donovan to put his hands behind his back. donovan responded with -- >> you don't have the right to search me, sir. >> reporter: this is when donovan's camera goes off and for minutes there is no known record of what happened. but donovan said. >> he grabbed my shirt collar and started punching me in the stomach for like two minutes and then he maced me. i thought to myself, this cop is going to pull his gun and he is going to shoot me. >> reporter: sfpd told me last night that they informed the office of citizen complaints but that office told me they have no record of it. cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> he is facing charges including battery on an officer and obstruction of justice. the 49ers lock in a new

4:45 am
>> reporter: in philadelphia and during his time as head coach of the oregon ducks kelly developed a reputation as a demanding coach with what some might call a tough personality. >> you know, i -- i like chip kelly's concepts but i think he is kind of a tough fit for the nfl. people are still trying to figure him out. 49ers probably are in as much need as anybody else. >> reporter: but could kelly's hurry-up offense mean good things for 49ers quarterback kaepernick? >> chip kelly has coveted colin kaepernick since he joined the eagles a mobile quarterback that fits that bill. he can simplify the offense for him, boost kaepernick's confidence, ultimately all those things are why i think kaepernick will be under center when minicamp rolls around. >> gives kaepernick a better shot just from the style of play that kaepernick plays. >> imagine colin is a very happy player right now. kelly won't have control of the roster though like he did in
