haircut, the things that you know the news was telling us to look for or to look at and then i didn't want to believe it was him but turned out it was him. >> and you followed him for more than 30 miles. what were you doing -- were you concerned that he might notice that you were following him? >> i didn't follow him directly. i got off of the entrance and come back to -- i started back to the floral shop and called my boss. who he's the one, todd the owner here is the one who guided me through and called the police and stayed on the phone for while i got back out on tobypass to follow him to see if i could get his tag number and everything. >> oh my goodness. chief ledford, when your office received the call what did you all do? >> well once the call came in, she told us where she was in the city then we were able to get

local clergy and said here's what we've got, first off we ask them you know keep our staff and the folks in charleston in your thoughts and in your prayers and told them if they wanted to come up we'd be more than happy to have you, so they came up and were a tremendous asset to us not only from a staff standpoint but from people who were coming to the department in the parking lot, obviously they had questions, emotions were up and down so just having the whole community there along with us was important and it turned out to be a big payoff. >> it was very powerful chief. it really was, chief ledford, thank you. debbie bless your heart. i mean this is the person everyone was looking for. we're always told as citizens if you see something, do something and you did just that. many were fearful of what he could possibly do next. so i know that was of concern to you, as well. so debbie thank you. chief ledford, thank you very much. our best to everybody there.

lawsuit over a tape that was posted online by the website gawker. hogan claims it's an invasion of privacy. gawker argues he's fair game and it's news. it's the first celebrity sex tape case to go to trial and abc's david wright has that story. >> reporter: in the red corner the mustachioed muscle man who bested the likes of brutus beefcake roddy piper. hulk hogan undisputed master of the leg drop. now taking on a very different adversary in court. >> well we're seeking monetary damages and a permanent injunction against the video. >> reporter: in the blue corner gawker media that dared to publish a secretly recorded sex tape of the 300-pound bruiser wrestling intimately with the then wife of a friend a florida deejay nicknamed bubba the love sponge a post seen by 2.5 million people. >> so there was clear news interest in the topic.
we break the story this is with his best friend's approval so there's that aspect of newsworthiness. >> reporter: at issue whether it is news or gossip. >> no one is going to mistake hulk hogan's sex tape with the pentagon papers. >> reporter: plenty of leaked sex tapes before but never before has the celeb been ready to risk more humiliation in open court. hogan's argument even the brashest personality is entitled to some personality. >> if somebody is in a private place doing private things they have a right to do that and not be filmed without their knowledge and they have a right for that film not to be played to the world. >> reporter: but gawker insists the sex tape was news protected by the first amendment. >> months before gawker ever published this was a giant story in the news. >> reporter: hogan had publicly denied the affair and had frequently boasted of his sexual prowess in books, on reality tv and on howard stern. >> if you scroll through my pictures wow. >> naked pictures. who's in your phone that's
naked? >> who do you think? >> reporter: the case headed for trial early next month. he's seeking $100 million in damages. >> if hogan wins it would definitely send a loud message to reporters to be careful. >> reporter: hulk hogan looking to put the leg drop on gawker. for "good morning america," david wright abc news, new york. >> all right, david wright our thanks to you. dan abrams is here. you heard what hulk hogan's attorney said there. if somebody is in a private place doing private things they have a right not to be filmed if they have no knowledge of this. >> gawker didn't take the film so that's not the legal question though here. as a legal matter gawker is a very strong argument and that is hulk hogan made his sex life news and then we covered his sex life. that's news too. the problem for gawker may be that in front of a florida jury the question in their minds may end up being was it right or wrong to publish it. they may end up becoming media critics as opposed to evaluating
this legally. that's the danger but this has worked its way up through the federal courts on separate questions and just about every time gawker has ended up winning, certainly in the end gawker has won as a legal matter and i think that as a legal matter they're going to end up winning again. >> but as you point out what gawker has its on side he brought up his sex life before and put it out there. >> right, under different facts, gawker could be in trouble. if they had tried to sell the tape for example as a legal matter they'd be in trouble. if hulk hogan had not made his sex life such a big issue in the past they could be in trouble legally. and that's going to be the challenge for their lawyers here. is to try to keep the jurors focused on this question of was it newsworthy. the problem is when you hear the word newsworthy and term was it of public concern? people are going to say, public concern, how is it of public concern that hulk hogan was having sex with someone? well public concern is a legal
matter. doesn't mean the same thing that we think of it -- >> judgment in your mind. >> that's right. it doesn't mean as a legal matter is it going to determine the future of the republic? is it important? that's not the standard. the government doesn't get to decide what's important and what's newsworthy. and hulk hogan doesn't get to decide that. if he makes this an issue as he did and he's a celebrity as he is then it's very tough to figure out legally how gawker loses the case. >> right. a lot of those jurors everyday people might be thinking of privacy. >> privacy and right and wrong and that's the thing that the gawker team is going to have to overcome. >> and the fact it's gotten this far. >> that's right. the fact that it's going to trial is a big deal. >> thank you, gentlemen. now to that cruise ship accident that injured 17 people overnight. the ship crashing into a wall in a river lock in upstate new york. t.j. holmes is here with all the details. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: what we're talking about, a river lock two walls sitting here on the river.
one side opens up a ship goes in wall closes and can add or take away water so it levels out. that's what's supposed to happen. this ship is sitting between those two walls. passengers still on board as they try to figure out how bad the damage is. >> respond to a boating accident at eisenhower locks. >> reporter: overnight a scare at sea. >> apparently this is a passenger vessel. >> reporter: this was the scene in upstate new york a cruise ship on its way to toronto with 274 passengers and crew on board all french nationals slamming into a river lock wall in the st. lawrence seaway. the 286-foot "saint laurent" putting out a distress call after it crashed into that concrete structure at the eisenhower lock near the canadian border. >> you may want to move your lighting units up to the scene as soon as possible. >> reporter: as crews rushed to drain the water from the lock the coast guard rushing to the scene. 17 passengers injured in the collision. crews triaging them and removing
them from the ship. it's still locked in place as investigators look into what caused the accident. >> if they can repair it with the passengers on board, then the passengers will remain on board and continue on with the cruise. however, i'm leading to believe there is enough damage to the ship that probably will not take place. >> reporter: this ship was scheduled to stay on the st. lawrence seaway that connects the great lakes to the atlantic all summer right now vacation cut short. they are stuck sitting there. right now, guy, it looks like the damage is too extensive and end up being taken off that ship. >> stuck on the ship. >> all right, teej have a good weekend. now to flooding concerns for louisiana to kentucky ginger has made her way there to the park. >> oh and i made it right here to a perfect morning in the park for a hot concert but it has been far from perfect in the middle of the almost five inches of rain in shreveport louisiana. tulsa, oklahoma getting hit

it's eight episodes like we saw with matthew mcconaughey. >> it's own complete story which is kind of fun. you don't have the pressure of just inventing something again to do it. you're allowed to defiantly tell one story and have that kind of be the end all, be all. >> how is it work with collin fairly rachel mcadams taylor? >> we had a great time. colin and i got pizza in brooklyn last night which was fun. taylor is fantastic and rachel of course i did "wedding crashers" with her so i adore her. >> one of the greats. >> we made a game up called true or false, detective. >> let's play. i have no choice. >> tell us and explain. true or false. >> true or false with -- >> if you don't mind. >> i don't. >> true or false, detective, you almost your honor it the down the role because you were going to have to wear a mustache like colin farrell. >> which one. >> you almost turned down the role because you would have had to wear -- >> that is pause. >> totally false. >> that's totally false. >> all right.
