9:01 am
evening this weekend. i could not believe -- it was just -- this picture is a sparkling photograph. real life. >> "the love boat." >> i am in north beach at night having dinner at north beach restaurant when the mr. mayor, willie brown, walks in and says, i love watching you guys on "the 9". >> nice. >> we like having him as a guest. >> what we did on friday, talking about prince. then i saw "beach blanket babylon." >> that is a san francisco night. >> i like that. >> i go big. i had to bring you that song and that picture. thank you for joining us this monday morning. a lot of news to cover. we are going to start with something happening in san carlos. a crash you're monitoring? >> that's right. it was a result of a police chase northbound el camino real. this ended up at el camino and arroyo in san carlos. there is a big police presence and the fire department and medics. el camino is not usually this crowded this time of the
9:02 am
morning. it's crowded. don't get me wrong. this is time to find other ways. perhaps stay on 101. we have crews on the way to get us nor information. >> okay. sheriff's deputies in contra costa county are investigating an early morning robbery at a casino. >> the robbers didn't take cash. weapon understand they may have taken casino chips. >> this happened at the california grand casino in pacheco. brian flores has the details. >> reporter: unfortunately, guys, we are not getting more details from our previous report this morning. we have reached out to the contra costa county sheriff's department numerous times this morning. we have yet to hear back. that being said, they continue to investigate this early morning robbery at the casino and they are hoping that some clues and leads will come to an arrest. according to the contra costa county sheriff's department, this robbery was reported at about 4:45 this morning. sheriff's department says there are no reports of any injuries. also at this point there is no clear cut description of a suspect, but the sheriff's department says they are
9:03 am
looking at surveillance video to see if they can figure out more about who this person is. a source close to the investigation told me that the robber was inside really for about a minute. he was wearing something to protect his face and this person may have had a weapon. we are also hearing what the robber took an undisclosed amount of casino chips and ran off. again, that was from a source close to the investigation. as we take it back out live, the casino is open to the public this morning. some of the employees that we saw coming into the casino were shocked. they had heard what happened. but again this robber remains on the loose this morning. unfortunately, there is no description of who this person is. again as san as we find -- as soon as we find out more information, we will definitely pass that along. guys, back to you. >> brian, i know it's early in the investigation, but a lot of people think, once those chips leave the casino, they are essentially worthless, right? many of them are tracked. it's not like you can take them to the grocery store and pay for groceries with them? >> reporter: exactly. we talked about that during the
9:04 am
8:00 hour. there is also a case this las vegas where robber tried to steal millions of dollars worth of chips. those chips had some type of tracker on it. it's unclear if they have that same type of tracker on these chips. if a robber takes chips, you can't cash it into a grocery store. you have to come back to the casino. i don't know how this person is going to get away with this. we will see. he or she remains on the loose this morning. >> maybe that robber tries to sell the chips to someone gullible enough to buy them. >> right. still in the east bay, police are looking for a gunman in a deadly shooting in a massage parlor in pittsburg. officers say the gunman came in, demanded money and that led to a fight between the suspect and several workers. during the fight the gunman shot one of the workers who died at the seen. >> san jose police are investigating the deaths of two people. the bodies of a man and woman were found yesterday on lucas court. the "mercury news" reports

9:06 am
we carry about this. we are not going to stop. >> the san francisco police department says it has taken steps to make changes in the wake of the shooting. they announced there will be better police training and they increased the number of non lethal beanbag rounds. some jurors could face fines for social media and internet use violations. legislation supported by state court officials would authorize judges in some counties to fine jurors up to $1,500 if they research their trial online or post about it on social media. currently, judges can only hold jurors in contempt. supporters say the legislation would prevent mistrials and overturned convictions. opponents say it won't have any practical effect. look what i have. ta-da! a jury summons. i keep these -- >> did you just get that? >> yes. last week. i three these so seriously. i respond. i show up. i check if i need to show up. however, there are people, they say i ignore those.
9:07 am
i throw them away. i don't even ask for a postponement. i am shocked people treat them that way. our question on twitter is, do you treat these as the serious pieces of paper that they are, or do you say whatever? >> son-in-law people think it's -- some people think it's a hassle. >> i am floored people ignore them. do you respond? do you show up? do you file it in the circular file when it comes to jury duty. let us know #ktvuthe9. tell us creative excuses maybe for getting out out of it. >> i have gone. they never choose me. >> you know, they have your number. number whatever, you can leave. and then i just go. >> i have never been on a jury. >> i look forward to being in a room with a book all day. i mean, honestly, i look forward to that. this is like my, you know, day of luxury awaiting. let us know. the nfl is having its draft this week. and someone in the nfl is making news this morning. new this morning a federal
9:08 am
appeals court has just ruled that new england patriots star tom brady must serve a four- game deflategate suspension imposed by the nfl. it reinstates brady's original suspension imposed by roger goodell and it's likely to fuel a fresh round of debate over what role, if any, the superstar quarterback played in using underinflated footballs during that afc championship game back in january of 2015. brady is, of course, a san mateo native. the san jose sharks are waiting to find out which team they will play in their second round of the stanley cup playoffs. the sharks weight the l.a. kings on friday night to close out their best of seven series. the sharks will face the winner of the series between anaheim and nashville. ducks lead that series three games to two, and it could close out -- close the series out in game six tonight. the warriors are one win away from advancing to the second round of the nba playoffs. >> this morning fans are nervous and concerned about the
9:09 am
latest injury to star steph curry. >> curry falls down and grabs right leg. >> did you see that right knee extended? he grand the right knee immediately. >> it's the inside part of the right knee. the mcl part. >> i just feel so bad for him. back to square one. we will see what happens with the mri. >> back with us this morning is ktvu's sports anchor jason applebaum. normally, falling on the floor, because it happens all the time in games, does not mean you're out for the season. how serious is this? >> we don't know. all i know is listening to talk- radio coming in, following this story on twitter, doctors are calling in saying it could be a grade one m cl sprain. he is going to have an mri today. maybe he lard has. and the warriors are going to send out the results. warriors fans holding their collective breath to find out
9:10 am
what the results that have mri is going to be. but you see our cameras in the locker room. his knee was heavily wrapped as he had a little postgame meal here. we just got after that ankle injury. nobody is talking about the ankle any more. the knee potentially much more serious. here's what coach kerr was saying about steph after the game. >> he still wanted to play. and we wouldn't let him. you saw it. i am sure he was very, very upset. you know, i just feel awful for him. now, hopefully, he is going to be okay. before too long, we don't know, but i feel bad for steph. but we got move on. >> we got to step our game up. with that we know they are thinking it's over now and we want to prove otherwise. >> yeah. they did prove otherwise certainly. >> in the huddle, ceo came out and tried to -- kerr was very emotional. draymond green said on a radio
9:11 am
show afterwards he was trying to get back in the game and the coach said you are not going to go. he broke down and was crying. he knew his knee wasn't right. the warriors can certainly beat the rockets on wednesday without him and wrap up the series and then everyone is hoping that the next series, the portland-eclipse series goes seven games. it's now 2-1 right now. they play game four tonight f that goes seven games, the warriors or steph would have over a week off with the new injury and maybe they could get him back. >> we saw how inspired the team played in the third quarter. the question going forward is, can they hold that up for four quarters every game? >> that's a great question. in the short term guys step up and make it happen. in the long term, you miss the best player in the world. guys certainly did step up. i mean, draymond green, that third quarter was unbelievable. they canned match that.
9:12 am
green actually said that he heard some of the houston fans cheering when steph was lying on the ground, and it really fired him up. they said they were going to win this one for steph as well. igodala, coach kerr said afte the game he had almost a perfect game. 22 points on nine of seven shooting. he is 32 years old. livingston will be front and center once again. he nine points, nine assists and five rebounds. >> so the rockets, let's face it, they are 41-41? >> right. they crept into the playoffs. >> it's not -- they are playing the way they should be playing. what about the clippers? can the warriors without curry beat the clippers who had a better record? >> i think they can beat the clippers or the blazers. that is 2-1. if portland hold it home tonight, it's 2-2. we don't know if it's going to be the clippers. you think they can beat the clippers. i don't think they will be favored in that series.
9:13 am
i think probably without steph, i think going into the clippers could be the favorite in that series. they could do it. when they get to san antonio, san antonio, who swept their series against memphis, this they wind their next round against oklahoma city, they could pose the biggest problem for the warriors because i don't think they can get past san antonio without steph curry. i don't want to speculate. let's home for the best on the mri results. >> one game at a time. >> exactly. >> a great, great team. without steph, he is 20-30% of that team easy. it's going to be tough. >> thanks for joining us again on "the 9". coming up on "mornings on 2: the 9", an early morning fire at a restaurant. the pieces of bay area sports history that were inside. a top of the line cell phone for $20,000. the high tech features that make it so expensive. >> is that what this? >> no, are you kidding me?

>> when i watch the film, i know these kids are acting. i know it's not really happening. for me and so many others it is so emotional. why do you feel like that is? >> reporter: because it's so relatable. i am seeing comments on facebook saying how people can relate to what they see on the screen and they can just relate to the feelings that the kids are having and the actors are displaying. they are so realistic. people probably have seen this type of bullying in their schools or on social media. >> so when you see bullying like this, has the attitude changed? when i was going to school a long time ago people were told toughen up and deal with it. now it's a different environment. has the attitude changed? do kids think bullying is uncool now? >> i feel like it depends on the group that you're in. but i think it's present in today's society in a different way than it probably was,
9:33 am
because in tv shows and movies you probably see like physical bullying, whereas in today i feel like it's more verbal and on social media because like social media really is an easy way to bully somebody because you are not visually seeing them. >> do you feel that people, that students get bullied into bullying? they watch people do it and fell, well, if i am going to be a part of the cool crowd i have to jump in and start bullying as well? >> reporter: i do not know. i don't have experience with bullying. i wouldn't know. >> when i was growing up, we used to hear sticks and stones will break my bones but names ever never hurt me. now it is those things that people bright online that -- write online that can stay with you for a lifetime. >> words can stick with people and it sticks with people until they grow old and look back and remember how they were awfully
