officer taska jumped in and had to physically pull these officers off this man. the mother of the boy who was being beaten on the front lawn commended officer taska for her actions. >> i appreciate you protecting him when one of the officers attacked him. >> officer taska was pulled in by her supervisor and put on suspension. she is expecting to lose her job. >> because she intervened and helped this young man? >> because she did not support her fellow police officers. >> you are kidding. >> so they wanted her to join in, beating up this kid? >> this is the controversy that this video has sparked. officer taska feels strongly that she is being reprimanded because she crossed the blue line, and also because she is the one and only female officer in the very small department of bagoda, and she is openly guy. >> oh. there's a whole lot going on right there. >> weird. and -- >> i feel bad for her, but i
also feel bad for the guy who got beat up. i mean, what the heck? >> the two richfield park police officers were never investigated, and never questioned about this incident, and they're still serving on the force. this is in the sea of cortez. >> oh! >> that is a huge 20-foot great white shark. >> that's jaws. >> what? >> a fisherman in mexico talking to this newspaper in sonora. he told this newspaper that is the biggest, largest shark they have seen ever. >> that's sad, though. i hate seeing that stuff. that's such a big beautiful animal to get caught up in a fisherm fisherman's net. >> they didn't go out to catch this shark. >> you're right. he did say they're not out fishing for sharks. what he did say, earlier, he lost one of his nets and when they went out, they threw other nets out trying to retrieve this one. what they didn't expect, it
would come back with a 20-foot, 2,000 pound or above great white shark. they were in a 22-foot. >> the shark is the same size of the boat. >> he says when they saw this, they were in shock. they didn't know what to do. but it was dead. they decided to just bring it to the beach, bring it on to the beach. and when they cut into him, they realized that he had two sea lions in his belly. >> whoa. >> dude was hungry. >> they gave the shark meat away for free to the locals. >> that's cool. >> so it wouldn't go unused. you won't believe how police in sylvania township, ohio took down an alleged drunk driver. police say gerald jordan was spotted by some other police officers driving drunk. >> driving extremely recklessly. here he comes right by our cruisers. >> so as you can see in this video from wtol, police are chasing this guy.
there are sparks flying, because he lost the tires, he hit a median, and he passed officers just finishing up a traffic stop around 3:14 a.m. so the officers gave chase. but that didn't end right there. police tapped him -- sent the car spinning, and then it gets really interesting. >> whoa. >> he was able to correct, keep going, but he crossed the median into northbound traffic. >> oh, boy. >> and he started going southbound in the northbound lane. at that point, police say it's do or die. so they were able to pin him in. they say he still had his foot on the accelerator while they're doing this. obviously, a dangerous situation with this guy crossing the median into oncoming traffic. >> right. like a zombie when the car finally t-boned him. he didn't even look over to see what just hit him. s he was just -- >> look at that mug shot. >> they seat belt him to the hospital. he was treated and released but
facing dui charges. >> i don't get why. endangers so many people. why cross that median? why? >> in this case, allegedly very intoxicated, not thinking about anybody else but themselves. >> i wonder if he knew he blew a tire. >> just kept on going, like nothing was going on. >> it seems like dogs have everything these days, right? well now they've got their own channel on the tube. >> no. >> that's right. >> what? >> dog tv! it's cable's first network exclusively for dogs. providing 24/7 programming on demand, no commercials, no reruns. no ratings. >> all for dogs. >> so basically, three areas of program. you've got stimulation, relaxation and exposure. it's available, $4.99 for the month. >> it contains scenes of moving
things and butterflies flying around and people playing football and so on. there's all kinds of interesting things to stimulate and entertain them. >> the other cool thing about dog tv, they alter the colors and the sounds of the programming to be more appeasing for the dogs. >> this is pretty awesome. especially because you know people do leave the tv on for their dogs when they leave for hours. >> i will admit, i leave the television on animal planet for my dog, packo. >> i think it's ridiculous. >> oh, please. >> you have a cat. >> but it's silly. how do we know what a dog watches on tv? so film makers that put this together, they shot everything down low from a dog's perspective, so it is sort of what a dog would see. it's been a huge success in san diego. but there is now plans to let this thing go national. we have a dog tv enthusiast joining us "right this minute." mary catannia with her dog blue.
mary, does blue like it? >> b turned it on right away ane couldn't get enough of it. he's a very active dog, he loves playing, going to the park, so whenever there was a stimulation episode on with lots of dogs playing or running around, he just wouldn't take his eyes off the screen. >> so since you got dog tv, does he just lie on the couch and ask you for popcorn and beer? >> no. a lot of people think that he's going to turn dogs into couch potatoes, but it's not a supplement. dogs aren't outside all of the time. we do have to work and go to the gym and do other kinds of stuff. so it's more of something for him when i can't be with him. ♪ hey. listen to this guy. >> that is like an award-winning burp. >> you've heard him. see him up close and too personal. >> domino's, domino's. >> that's not a pizza endorsement.
