charges and talking exclusively to fox5. it was a horrible experience for me and my children were being taunted and teased. this sign hanging on a d.c. house. we're tell you why neighbors are calling out city leaders. your news starts right now. but first a severe weather alert from your accuweather team. severe thunderstorm warning still in effect for parts of washington, d.c., prince george's county. you can see behind me quite the light show that has been going on as this storm formed over montgomery county just about an hour ago. let's get straight to radar, show you what we're contending with. tons of lightening and a list try of producing hail and strong streamline winds with this storm. the yellow box indicates parts still under the severe warning. arlington, most of prince george's county, from about the green belt area down towards clinton. that's until 1
until this storm continues to send extend all the way out to annapolis. tons of strikes of lightning. this is a very dangerous storms to be outdoors in. you're not planning ongoing outside, but yes, some of that very heavy rain analyte thing directly over the district. also hail being produced from the storm. i'm seeing a hail track right over washington itself. the core of the storm moving straight through the city right now. we do have more rain extending into montgomery county. i'll have much more in my full report coming up in about saw minutes, but forma that warning is in financing until 11:15. the republican national convention, it looks like everybody is going home for the night. many speakers naming trump and also taking aim at hillary

passively accept what is fed to us by the politically elite and the media. the notion that a hillary clinton administration wouldn't be that bad, the effects would only be temporary, you know, that it would only last for four and at most, eight years they're not using their god given brain to think about what they're saying because it won't be for eight years because she will be appointing people who will have an affect for us for generations and america may never recover from that. now the crowd did hear from donald trump tonight, but unlike last night he was not here in the arena, trump appeared by giant video screens from trump tower in new york thanking the delegates for their official nomination today and once again making a bold mark that he will be victorious this november. we

the parties pick states that they think are battle grounds and we want the convention any time it's ready to come, republicans or democrats are well p come to washington. the mare says kc has facilities, the hotels and the political history to pull off a successful representation. of course the headline that has democrat nateed so far is milany's speech. it matched the speech given by michelle obama at the 2008 convention. if you haven't heard it already, here's an example. that you work hard for what you want in life. that your work is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that treat people with respect. you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond, that you do what you say you're going to do. that you treat people
dignity and expect. today the trump campaign spent most of the day dismisses that they. they called it absurd, saying it was totally blown out of proportion. stay with fox5 for complete coverage of the republican national convention. tom fitzgerald will be life at the convention. now to a fox5 exclusive. we first told you about the arrest of a capital heights woman last year after she poured hot grits on her husband while he slept and then beat him with a baseball bat. now, a year later she is saying everyone got it wrong. fox5's teisha lewis joins us with the story. teisha. >>reporter: well, sarah it's a story that a made rounds in tabloids and main street media, this capital heights woman was cleared on all counts including assault and reckless endangerment charges. now she wants
and reputation. she says ' is a victim of domestic violence and she has a message for men and woman who may be going through the same situation. these days alexis state in is trying to start over. she was found not guilty after being charged with second degree assault and reckless endangerment. it was a horrible experience for me and my children because me and my kids were being taunted and teased quite often because of it. you know, it's a nightmare. last summer state in was arrested after police say she poured hot grits on her sleeping husband and knocked him out with a baseball b. it's a case that made national headlines. even so state in says she was the victim he wasn't asleep and he wasn't done deliberately. there was a restaining order in place. my husband and i have a long history of violence.
herself in a physical altercation with her husband. even so her husband who was covered with burns and blood did id flagged down a staininger who called 911. statin was in custody for ten hours before being releasing and ultimately being cleared on all charges. i lost my job. i did. and i try not to think about that because i think but i'm blessed because i was able to make it regardless. domestic violence is real. sometimes people have to think that you have to physically abused. you have verbal, emotional, financial and my husband had me in all categories. state in remains separated from her husband and although he was not charged in this incident he does have a documented history of domestic violence. statin says she wanted to share her story to raise awareness about domestic violence and also mental illness. teisha
