11:03 pm
president and hillary clinton. as of now the 35-year-old was not charged with a crime, but he remains locked up tonight. smeed will be back in court next wednesday. we looked into his past and discovered some disturbing details. scott taylor is here now with what he found out. >> reporter: the man has a violent criminal record out of texas and what we found inside his bedroom his bedroom is really disturbing. i am taking you inside jonathon sneed's bedroom that he shares with his grandmother. he was arrested for calling the secret service and telling them "i want to kill the president." >> well he's a good boy. he's not a bad person. i mean i don't know what's wrong with him. >> reporter: he admits he made the call and sources tell me 16 minutes on his grandmother's cell phone and
11:04 pm
clinton to. clinton too. he doesn't know why he made the call. he said he was drinking and doesn't want to hurt them. he has a long criminal record. in texas he was convicted of making terrorist threats and multiple dui's and thefts plus assault and bodily injury of the his grandmother says he is fascinated with presidential assassination. this is jonathon's room and as you can see he does have books that detail the assassination of president kennedy. family members tell me he would say he is bi-polar or suffers from split personalities. on his facebook he lists his professional skills as two ruggar handguns and assassination of two presidents and sniper rifle. >> it is crazy. anybody that threatens the president has got to have a problem.
11:05 pm
police did have a run in with this man when he called a crisis intervention line threatening to kill himself. scott taylor, cleveland 19. >> denise: we did some digging into other threats made against the president and found mr. obama is the most threatened president in history. receiving more than 30 threats a day with most never made public in fear of encouraging copycats. >> romona: the university of akron will have to reimburse student feeses they paid for the school's budget problems. the state officials are forcing the university to repay each student up to $238 in increased tau silt fees. the -- facility fees. the total is $4.1 million. last year the school announced $40 million in cutbacks including cutting more than 200 jobs. carl monday first exposed the problem this week. a little known danger that
11:06 pm
business and even your home. >> and now his story has drawn the attention of an influential state lawmaker. tonight carl has new information you need to know before you do any digging on your property. >> reporter: for some time now we have been warned to call 8-1-1 before we dig. >> thanks for calling 8-1-1. call before you dig. >> reporter: to prevent a utility or contractor or even a homeowner from hitting a gas or sewer line underground. last year more than one million people responded, but not everyone was motivated to make the call. >> even though he have the billboards that say call before you dig, the average citizen probably doesn't believe you will ever potentially hit some type of line when you're digging. you can even do this when you are putting in greenery in your backyard or in your front yard. >> reporter: state lawmaker sandra williams is on the public utilities committee. >> most people just don't pay
11:07 pm
follow the rules when they are supposed to which is one of the reasons we had to tighten up the 8-1-1 bill. >> reporter: tightening up means passage of the underground protection law that took affect last month. now you can be fined up to $2500 for not phoning 8-1-1 before you dig. >> money talks. if you start taking money away from the citizens and penalizing them and contractors, i believe they will begin to follow the rules that are in place. >> reporter: utilities like dominion east ohio say they are already doing a good job at identifying potential problems before they dig. the new lot doesn't address a potential danger we exposed earlier this week. notice cross bores. utility lines that intersect with sewer lines. when a plumber is called to repair a backed up sewer, the results can be catastrophic. near cincinnati a cross bore explosion left one family's home in a pile of rubble.
11:08 pm
bores have been reported in communities closer to homes like bay village, north royal ton and westlake. equally troubling, the ohio public utilities commission keeps no records of older sewer lines around the state. >> some of the older pipes that were laid originally, there is no way to know where the pipelines are. >> reporter: after we contacted her on our story she agreed to share her concerns about the older sewer lines with her fellow committee members and tweaked the new law if necessary. >> if we can identify where they are, maybe we can stop the cross bores from happening. >> reporter: now that we have a pipeline to the state capitol, we'll let you know what happens next. meanwhile, just remember -- >> it is a violation of law not to call before you dig. >> reporter: carl monday, cleveland 19. >> denise: we checked with the public utilities commission and only one complaint has
11:09 pm
who failed to call 8-1-1 before digging. they point out that new law is two months old and they expect more complaints to come in as the law gets publicized. >> romona: we told you about more and more permits in ohio. there was a 23% increase issued statewide last year. there were more than 71,000 new permits issued last year. before. and there were nearly 45,000 licenses renewed in 2015. lake county had the second most total permits issued new and renewed in all of ohio in frank lynn county. >> denise: ben carson is skipping the debate and sees no path forward in his campaign.
11:10 pm
suspended his campaign carson may do that in a speech he has scheduled for friday. and to night there is more fallout from yesterday's super tuesday showdown. donald trump and hillary clinton were the big winners. we wondered what does each candidate need to do to win the nomination. dan deroos is joining us with a look at what he has found. >> dan: i have been through all of the numbers and the scenario and there are a couple of ways to get each candidate to the nomination. i hate to say this, but we democrats. hillary has not quite locked it up, but pretty much because her margin of victory is so big. she needs to get to 2,338. want to focus more on the republicans because it is so heated and because there are so many candidate left. what does donald trump need to do to win? exactly what he is doing.
11:11 pm
margin of victory get bigger because he will collect more delegates as he tries to get to 1237. what does ted cruz need to have happen? he needs the rest of the field to drop out right now. he needs the rest of the votes that these candidates would have gotten to go up to ted cruz for all of the people who say, well i am not voting for donald trump so i'll vote for ted cruz. what does rubio and kasich need to do? they need a couple of big tuesdays. let's talk about where the votes will be first. march eighth, michigan and mississippi. for john kasich these are two big states because he is spending a lot of time there. obviously michigan is a neighbor and then another two. then on tuesday march 15th, that is the ohio primary. john kasich must win his state. right now trump leads by five points. when we look down at florida this is where marco rubio has put all of his eggs in one
11:12 pm
flaw flai and yow -- florida and ohio are winner take all states. you win you get all of the delegates. if trump goes in -- he is leading by a lot, but if he goes in and wins florida and ohio it is pretty much trump. >> romona: mitt rot -- mitt romney will have an announcement. he will layout his reasons why the billionaire should not be the party's candidate. >> you have heard of couples turning to doctors to get help getting pregnant. what about pets? this clinic is actually helping pets conceive and businesses -- business is jumping. see why tonight. >> romona: and a health alert on breast cancer. the new link between vitamin d and the deadly disease. jeff? >> jeff: more on the two
