it was for bank fraud. prosecutors allege he lied about his income when he took out a loan. it's important to point out that this charge has nothing to do withical pain mean. he was under investigation for, he is likely still under investigation for it at this time. the chairman, he did make short comments, not long after the video. he's what he had to say. >> i am have a comment tomorrow. i appreciate you wait negligent hallway this time. i don't have a comment, i will have a comment tomorrow. >> are you co-chairman? >> once again, look at the video. you can see a crush of reporters. a lot of reporters have been gathered here all day waiting for the chairman to come out. the doors have been locked, there were meetings going on inside. as you might imagine, council members were saddened and upset to hear about the head of the council, the chairman is planning to resign.
we spoke to them and he's their comments. >> this is a sad chapter in the city's history. we have gone through new nearly two years of what appeared to be constant allegations of wrong doing among the leadership of the city. and it's past time for us to put this behind us. >> i think the main thing is that we're focused on intikrity and the stability of our government. there will be changes today. >> i'm distraught, i'm very concerned about the future of this government. i believe we have the resources within this government to pull out of this. >> i want to tell you about something we got from the mayor through twitter. he made a comment on this and i'm going read it to you, quote, i'm shocked, disappointed, and saddened by today's news. i served alongside mr. brown on the council and never would
have imagined something like this. meantime, several sources, again, say the chairman will step down tomorrow. he plans to make comments, that is what he said to us some time tomorrow. at that point, council member mary chay, she is next in line. she will assume authority and will become the temporary chair. basically what she will do is call for a vote. all 13 council members will vote on an at-large council member to take the temporary position. at that point, the temporary council member will run the council or be chair of the council until a special election can be called and a chairman is elected by the people. that is the very latest, shawn, laura, back to you. >> let me ask you about the move down there and clearly, we saw the crush of reporters in the media there and we saw kwame brown with a smile on his face. what is the mood there? >> reporter: yeah, he did seem to have a smile on his face.
it was last night that he said he was not going to resign. don't know if he knew anything about this charge today, if it was sprung on him this morning, but they kept us at bay for a while. we heard about this around the noon hour and stayed outside of his office. they had food delivered, they had people come and go. his attorney fred cook who had no comment came. councilwoman mary chay came and once he came out, it was really, really a swarm of reporters. there were so many camera photographers there, reporters,ro guys, newspaper reporter -- radio guys, newspaper reporters all trying to get at the chairman. it was a very narrow hallway. it got hectic. in fact, a lot of people were shouting and pushing. so it was not a pretty sit on at all. >> not at all. i can imagine. matt ackland, thank you very much for bringing us up to speed there. this is not the first controversy swirling around the wilson building the past few months and now it's the city council chair who is feeling the heat on this one.
mark plotkin joining us now. thank you for joining us. >> reporter: i'm glad to be here. sorry it's under these circumstances. >> absolutely. we heard matt say that council members met behind glass doors and when they came out, they didn't have a lot to say. at last check, kwame brown didn't officially resign. we know you're checking in with the sources. what is going on behind the scenes now? >> what i was told at that meeting is kwame brown apologized to the colleagues and made an important statement, shawn, and said none of the allegations, the bank fraud count, none of the allegations have anything to do with his campaign this with in 2004, 2008, or 2010. and that is clearing the board about the investigation in terms of campaign fivance and -- finance. then, i was told that david catania, one of the at-large members asked him, said look, i'm worried about you, this bank fraud having to do with mortgage applications or home equity loan. are you going lose your house
to which fred cook, kwame brown's lawyer said, wait a second, we don't want to get into this. alexander started crying, the ward 7 council member came over and embraced brown. marion barry had some things to say concerning his long association with the family. kwame brown's father was a field organizer for marion barry and then it broke up. >> clearly, clearly very emotional for many of the city council members who care a lot about the chairman. you mentioned something. we have been talking for weeks about the investigation into brown is's finance. today, he was charged with the single count of bank fraud. what about the campaign finance charges? are they still on the table? >> they are on the table. what i was told is that nobody should deduct or dedeuce from this that the u.s. attorney is not still investigating those charges having to do with campaign finance and so kwame brown can only think that he's
not free of that and we don't know what is going happen. and the chairman of the board of elections, when he sent over the --ed there were criminal violations, a bold and provocative statement. this stick town carries a maximum of 30 years and a fine, although the federal sentenceing guidelines will be, a supplyd -- applied and it will be obviously far, way, way less and surely, i think the people assume that this criminal information means the defendant agrees with it and he would plead guilty and that seems to me like there will be jail time. >> and i have so many more questions to ask you and more details. we hope you will stick around and we will have more on the story on the news edge at 6 tonight and online. and mean tome, stay with fox 5 for continuing coverage
of the still-developing story and we'll have updates on air and online at www.myfoxdc.com. and to a story on fox 5. two prince georges county police officers are under investigation in charles county for allegedly handcuffing, detaining, and assaulting a teenager in an attempt to teach him a lesson. the law enforcement sources say that the officers were offduty and in a marked cruiser when they allegedly stopped threen toes after they left a memorial day party. paul wagner joins us live with that story from waldorf. paul? >> reporter: the allegations are serious and the charles county sheriff's office is conducting a criminal investigation and this is what we know from law enforcement sources. the two offduty officers lived in the same neighborhood and that is where that party was taking place and went after the three types, detaining two and
handcuffing them before the third one got away. >> this is where it started. in this house on the quiet court in waldorf where the teens say they were invited for a memorial day picnic. as the afternoon turned to evening, the types told investigators the home owner accused them of taking items from the house and searched one of the teens and then left. the three arrived in this neighborhood. two were on bikes, one was on foot. as the offduty officers approached, one of the teens ran off and a second one was detained by one of the offduty officers and the third teen we're calling jl arrived here in the 3,000 block of miranda place and that is where he said the officer shouted stop or i will shoot nut back. j.l. said he then sunk to his knees and the officer tackled him. and a man who witnessed the incident agreed to recount what he saw as long as fox 5 didn't
identify him. and. >> i saw a large caucasian male chasing a younger black male down by the park and to that and once i went around and about, i saw the officer i don't know if he was an officer, i saw him pounding on top of the victim. >> reporter: j.l. said he and the other type were handcuffed and driven away. >> i was scared and nervous there and i know -- take motion and what is it going to do? >> the father agreed to let us speak to him as long as we did not show his face or use his real name. he said the second teen who was detained, was able to slip out of the handcuffs and get away and now he was alone. >> i was sitting back there and just write. i -- never see my parents
again. >> reporter: he wasel to to get out of the cruiser and walk up to the fence. that is where the handcuffs were removed and the officers told him to put his chin against the fence and count to 100 then they drove away. they never said anything to you about why they were detaining you? >> no, sir. then when you got here and you were told to walk forward, what was going here? >> is he going to hit me in the back of my head again? and everythings thinking he was going to shoot me or taze me. >> reporter: the law enforcement sources say some of the evidence was captured on a sheriff's department dash cam cruiser and that is unclear exactly what that evidence is at this point. and we have been told by sources that one of the bicycles that the teens were riding was found at one of these offduty officers homes and they have been questioned
by police. awhile ago, we got a statement and it says the charles county office is investigating a criminal conduct investigation involving two prince georges offduty police officers. as soon as we were made aware of this, the officers' police powers were suspended and they were placed on administrative desk duty and we will take additional appropriate actions from the charles county sheriff's office. >> and that is what we have here in waldorf at this point. back to you. >> paul wagner, thank you. and coming up tonight, police make an arrest after a deadly shooting at a metro station. plus, why certain individuals in one local county will soon have to register with police if they want to own a gun. gun. and the dulles rail project has a long way to go. a major hurdle was cleared today. we'll have details. also ahead, the redskins are packing up and moving to richmond. we'll explain. jerry. and thanks a love.
former penn state football coach jerry sandusky is charged with molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period and has denied the charges. despite speculation the redskins might move their headquarters back to the nation's capitol, the team announced it's staying put in northern virginia and where it will be holding training camp in 2013 and lindsay has more. >> reporter: next season, they will load up the trucks to richmond, virginia and that is since the general manager and bob mcdonald's office made the announcement this afternoon. they have not decided on the sight but will -- site but will work on it the upcoming days and weeks. the redskins are the only national franchise. the team supports over 1800 jobs in the state. the governor approved a grant to help keep the team's facility invo virginia.
and corporate headquarters will stay in loudoun county and redskins park will expand. >> and as a 45-year washington redskin fan, i'm delighted to announce that they have decided to make their permanent home in virginia and they'll be moving their summer training camp, beginning in 2013, here in richmond, virginia, and for three weeks. that is an eight-year commitment. >> and that does give you a special bond. they can focus on the football team and teammates and i think for the fans, it will be a great opportunity for some people who haven't been able to travel up to northern virginia to come on up and watch us practice. >> reporter: so, bruce allen mentioned on espn980 that improvements at redskins park will improve new meeting rooms with updated technology and
that weight room and cafeteria. >> whatever they need. >> absolutely. how is loudoun county and the fans there reacting to the news? karen gray houston has more on that part of the story. i am sure not going over well? >> reporter: and let me just tell you. we know the skins have trained in scottsburg. most of the past 12 years, summer camp has been in ashburn and that looks like the fans will have a hard time letting go. >> and -- come on back. >> reporter: it's been a while since the skin his a nice season. the coach mentioned it before that a move might help them bond closer and better. >> last year, they were talking about moving to glen burnie, maryland. and they're thinking about going to richmond and they leaving their fan base. >> reporter: at the sports bar and grill in ashburn, management and fans a like have strong feelings about the move.
>> and that is not reasonable. this is where they belong. >> and i am not offended by that and that is still their local team. >> reporter: and sometimes you have to do what you have to do and local officials are not thrilled about the move but accepted it. >> and some coaches have a philosophy of taking their players out away from where home is for many of them and so they can bond together. >> reporter: economics, that is usually the bottom line. the redskins are keeping the corporate offices in ashburn and expanding and improving their training facility here. no doubt about it, loudoun will feel the loss when the summer camp goes to richmond. >> it will be some and goodbye
again here, and -- >> reporter: they're also thinking about how much the move will cost them. >> i think it's going to hurt businesses like ours, as far as the bartending industries. we don't want people to come here for games and stuff. >> reporter: clearly if the fans in ashburn have their brothers, the redskins would say. -- stay. some of those real die-hard fans took some shots at team owner dan snider, blaming him for the move and accusing him of micromanagement. the fans are upset they can't go to preseason practice sessions to route for their favorite players. laura? >> thank you very much, karen gray houston. another big stories we're following, a breakthrough in the stalemate that threatened to kill the metro rail to dulles. today, the agency overseeing the project agreed to remove preferences for union labor from the plans. virginia's governor and low den county supervisors refused to fund the project if that was not removed. sherri ly is here new with what this means. sherry? >> reporter: laura, first of all, this is a huge step for the rail to dulles. it's not the final decision.
that belongs to loudoun county now and we must still agree to put up the money. still, the issue over union labor was the biggest obstacle and that is gone the vote to drop union friendly incentives cleared a major hurdle for the silver line to move forward from reston to dulles internationallator. >> and we're looking ahead. the factha -- and to give the hard feelings we have. >> reporter: the metro washington airport authority allowed them to record audio and notva of the board member davis and the chairman during a media briefing. the board buckled to pressure from virginia's republican governor and the republican-led loudoun county supervisors to drop the labor agreement and incentive even though the commonwealth had once been on board. >> you don't say no to the whole project. >> when we voted on it in november, it was unanimous. >> reporter: the first phase of
the silver line through tyson's and reston has a voluntary pla. the ideological divide over a similar agreement for phase two led to months of wrangling and the involvement of the u.s. secretary of transportation. come in a letter this week, the governor agreed to the $150 million in thank youing if the pla was removed. that leaves loudoun county now which must decide by july 4th, whether to commit its $200 million share and ongoing funding. >> if we stay with the project that is anticipated the rail will be in do you dean -- loudoun county in 2008. if we opt out, the project will be on hold. >> and that is a monumental decision. >> reporter: without loudoun county, the deal falls a part. >> reporter: the board of visors is holding a work session in an hour from now on the dulles rail project and they won't take any kind of vote.
that could come as early as the board's next meeting in two weeks or as late as july 3rd and that is up to the deadline and if loudoun opts out, it would set back the projects at least two years, laura. >> thank you very much. coming up, passwords posted online. why millions might be at risk. and also ahead, new evident reveals a canadian man may have had more victims. we'll have details.
