7:01 am
all. and he's the anchorman who makes the news -- makes up the news and doesn't just play one on tv. but what was will ferrell up to overnight that got him hauled head first out of a lakers game. what happened to keeping it classy? we'll tell you this morning. and we do say good morning, america. great to have george back from d.c. will ferrell. oh, come on. it was just a moment. just think hollywood, people. just hollywood. >> yeah, it is l.a. we'll have a lot more on that coming up. deflate-gate seems to be getting bigger and bigger. new reports now that the patriots may have used underinflated footballs in several other games this season. >> let me tell you, it is a story that has this whole studio buzzing right now talking there at home i'm sure as well. we'll talk to michael and jesse palmer here live just ahead.
7:02 am
but first, abc's ryan smith is in the patriots hometown of foxborough with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. just moments ago, patriots coach bill belichick addressed the media, he says he knows nothing about deflated footballs. that's one of the many questions being asked as the nfl investigation could wrap up soon. bill belichick finding himself on the hot seat this morning. >> i was shocked to learn of the news reports about the footballs, i had no knowledge whatsoever of the situation until monday morning. grilled as questions persist about whether or not the patriots may have tampered with footballs before. >> in my entire coaching career i have never talked to any player staff member about
7:03 am
football air pressure. >> reporter: sources telling our sister network espn the indianapolis colts complained during this regular-season game on november 16th after colts safety mike adams intercepted two balls he thought were deflated. >> he's going to get picked off at the 32! >> reporter: tom brady talking about deflated footballs during this 2011 interview while joking about tight end rob gronkowski. league sources tell 11 of 12 footballs were unz inflated by two pounds per square inch. the balls were properly inspected and approved 2 hours and 15 minutes before the game. . the only time that the patriots could have deflated the game during kickoff or on the sideline. i wanted to see how long it could take to do just that.
7:04 am
just like that. espn sports science tackling another question this morning, does an underinflated ball actually help? >> a typical nfl player whether throwing or receiving could apply 1.5% more force to the ball. >> reporter: around the country, the patriots have taken on the aura of an evil empire. headlines, the patriots should be disqualified from the super bowl. however, don't tell that to the people of boston. >> our teams are the best teams and for somebody to condemn the patriots they're idiots! brady successfully lobbied the nfl to let teams use their own footballs on offense. while many say 2 pounds of pressure isn't very much if they intentionally deflated balls, it's about plague the right way.
7:05 am
>> okay, ryan. we'll bring in espn network football analyst jesse palmer, former quarterback in the nfl and, of course, with the florida gators, and our michael strahan. and look at our crew. they are waiting to weigh in. people are just can't get enough of it. jesse, as a qb, what real difference does it make? >> right, well, this is an inflated football and this is a deflated football and i think the biggest advantage in this game playing in cold weather, wet weather like in the afc title games allows the quarterback to squeeze it harder and gives you more control and accuracy when throwing downfield. this is much easier football to catch and i think it's also easier to carry for ball carriers. harder to fumble when you're carrying this football. those would be the advantages patriots may have had. >> every team -- people don't understand this, and thinking with respect to the colts playing with the same ball, no. >> the kickers have their own separate balls, as well. from a defensive standpoint, if i get a shot on you as a quarterback there is a
7:06 am
great opportunity to strip the ball away unless you're able to really grip it a lot better. it does make a big difference and i think this is something that, when you look at just in the spirit of the game that if it was done, it's not in the spirit of the game. >> how would you feel? how would you feel if you're on the field and this happens? >> well, as a fan -- as a football observer, and as someone who covers the sport, i don't think the colts would have won the game anyway. as a fan it is -- it is -- it puts a damper on the win. it puts a damper on the patriots and this is somebody where the owner, who's one of the most revered owners in the league and the coach -- >> that's the thing. on the field i don't think this was that big of an advantage. they won the game, 45-7. it wasn't because of deflated footballs. they ran better and they tackled better and they blocked better. they were the better team. the bigger picture is ethics, cheating and keeping the integrity of the game. >> the colts said the same thing. this is when our studio jumps in. it does matter. it does matter. i mean, yes, it doesn't affect the outcome of the game but what -- hearing from a lot of parents especially mothers
7:07 am
saying what kind of message does this send to kids? >> if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. that's a terrible message. >> what happens to cheaters don't prosper? >> absolutely that's the problem with this thing right now. i think everybody loses in this. i think any time the integrity of cheating comes up, it's a black eye for the nfl, it's black eye for the new england patriots. what about the referees that never spotted the football? he touched the ball every play. if the football was really deflated this much, someone is spotting a football. you got to stop the game. that's never been brought up. the referees are at fault just as much as everyone else. >> let's let the every man -- >> what do you guys think? >> it's not right. >> it's not right. >> second time they caught. >> i could have won that game. >> the nfl says it's a $25,000 fee for altering a game ball fine so it's a misdemeanor, right? >> wait a minute. he's wearing a patriots sweatshirt. >> biased opinion. >> you know, it's funny. even in that piece, it's not a
7:08 am
big deal. he's a patriots fan. i think in the spirit of the game it is a big deal. as we were saying earlier some people who say, well, why are they even playing? they should be out of it completely. i don't think that's going to happen but at some point there has to be kind of rules and standards set so this doesn't happen again. this cannot continue to happen especially with one team being accused of so much. >> that's right, michael, jesse. good to see you again. >> we've never cheated. >> no. because we were never trying. >> always good at that. george. >> cannot wait to see what the nfl does about this. we're going to turn now to that blast of winter dumping record snow in the south. more than a foot in some areas and a possible nor'easter targeting millions this weekend, ginger tracking it all. >> yeah, that's more than a foot in amarillo, texas, overnight. look at those trees just heavy with all that snow. we've got video, too. they had four inch per hour snowfall rates. that is incredible. they haven't had this much snow in almost two years. and it's almost three times their monthly average. so, yes, snow still falling in west texas but will start to
7:09 am
become all rain from houston into new orleans. that's the heavy rain going into overnight or early friday and friday into saturday a wet one for atlanta up the coast and this is what we're watching. if it grabs enough cold air you may have some freezing rain and some snow mixed in. the track is the biggest issue and we will be tracking it for the coming days and giving you more detail especially tomorrow. but heavy rain i can promise you tallahassee back to houston. george. >> okay, ginger, thanks. we're going to turn to that navy captain just fired from his command at the naval base at guantanamo bay. officials say they lost confidence in captain jon nettleton as they investigate charges about an affair with an employee's husband who was found dead in the bay less than two weeks ago. abc's martha raddatz is tracking the story. good morning. >> reporter: this all began when the coast guard discovered the body of 42-year-old christopher tur, a civilian who worked at the navy exchange in the waters off the base. his wife, laura, had reported him missing the day before. it's unclear exactly how he died. but officials tell abc news that it was in the course of the
7:10 am
investigation they learned that laura tur was allegedly having an affair with captain john nettleton. nettleton has been commander of the base for more than two years. nettleton is a helicopter pilot by training who did a tour in iraq and numerous other deployments. laura tur is the director of the fleet and family services center at the base where she and her husband had lived, george, since 2011. >> okay, martha, thanks very much. a lot of questions still to answer. >> sure are. all right, george. now the latest on prince andrew fighting back against charges he had sex with an underage girl. new details directly from his accuser are coming out now in court documents as the prince makes his first public appearance since the scandal broke at a conversation in switzerland and terry moran is there with that story. >> reporter: this morning, here in davos, prince andrew surrounded by security, head down, making his first public appearance since this swirling sex scandal erupted. >> good morning, sir.
7:11 am
>> reporter: and refusing to break his silence. he is the second son of queen elizabeth, fifth in line to the throne, the duke of york, a randy andy as the tabloids dubbed him long ago, but these are sordid allegations. in a sworn affidavit released wednesday, this woman, virginia roberts, alleges she had sex with the prince three times starting when she was 17. she says she met prince andrew who she calls andy in march of 2001 in london, the night this photo was taken in her affidavit. she says she engaged in sexual activities with him that same evening. roberts alleges two other sexual encounters with prince andrew, one in new york city that spring and another in the u.s. virgin islands when she was around 18. and she says it was prince andrew's former friend, billionaire jeffrey epstein convicted in 2008 of soliciting young girls for sex who trafficked her, forcing her into having sex with the prince and many other powerful men including politicians and business executives. >> this is probably a pr matter, rather than a legal matter.
7:12 am
but there are potential legal risks here for him. in the virgin islands, if you're under 18 and you have sex with someone more than five years older, that's considered statutory rape. >> reporter: buckingham palace continues to deny the claims telling abc news any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue. >> whether these allegations are true or not, the chickens are coming home to roost. >> reporter: the royal family tries hard not to answer these kind of allegations in public but the longer it goes on the harder it will be for prince andrew to maintain his silence and to do things like this, represent britain around the world. robin. >> all right there, terry, thanks. we're going to turn now to new details this morning on airasia flight 8501, now reports of warning alarms screaming in the cockpit and important questions still out there about what exactly what went wrong. abc's david kerley reports from reagan national airport. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning,
7:13 am
george. we're just getting snippets and comments from the indonesians who had the black boxes for nearly ten days all as we try to piece together this puzzle of flight 8501. this morning, six more bodies have been recovered from the waters of the java sea, some still buckled into their seats. this morning still no indication whether it was the pilot or the plane's computer that may have contributed to this crash. >> we don't know if the computer in this airplane is involved or not, but if it is, this is unprecedented for the airbus a320 family. airbus stands to be concerned with what's happened in the case as do the indonesians, but i want to see an international consortium working on them, not just them. >> reporter: before all this wreckage chaos in the cockpit. at last report officials say only half the airasia cockpit recording has been transcribed because there's so many sounds and alarms blaring over the pilots' voices. an unnamed source quoted in the french press saying in the moments before the fatal crash, the jet was in essence screaming at the pilots. >> stall, stall. >> reporter: jetliners do alert pilots.
7:14 am
sounding the alarm when something is wrong. according to indonesian investigators the airasia airbus a320 was flying in severe weather and started climbing at an extreme rate three times faster than normal which could have caused it to lose lift and stall falling to earth. the alarm to pilots sounding something like this. >> stall, stall. >> reporter: and it all could have taken only 3 1/2 to 4 minutes full of terror to fall out of the sky. safety experts want to know as soon as possible on its computer system can be fixed. think about george, thousand of passengers will be flying on an a320 today, george. >> yeah, we need transparency there. okay, david, thanks very much. to amy with today's other top stories. a big fire in new york. that's right, it's still going, in fact, george.
7:15 am
good morning, everyone. and we begin with that state of emergency declared overnight as that massive fire engulfed a large apartment complex in new jersey. up to 1,000 people fleeing their homes. authorities closing nearby schools, hours later the fire still burning at this hour. abc's gio benitez on the scene. gio, good morning. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. there is still so much smoke here you can smell it all the way in manhattan. miles away across the hudson as we go look at these unbelievable images of that fire, we can tell you that hundreds of people are now homeless. fire crews had a really hard time because of the wind and cold overnight. so many people live in this massive complex, even the announcer for the new york yankees losing his home here, and cell phone video shot during the fire shows large sections of the building falling crashing to the ground. incredibly, and this is the headline, no one was hurt here. investigators are still looking into what started this fire. but nearby schools have been closed for the day because roads are just inaccessible here they're blocked off and crews,
7:16 am
as you can see behind me, crews are still dousing those hot spots, amy. no one was hurt. >> all right, incredible pictures there, gio, incredible everyone made it out safely. thank you. the former ferguson, missouri, police officer who shot and killed michael brown is expected to be cleared by the justice department. federal prosecutors are likely to recommend that no civil rights charges be filed against darren wilson but attorney general eric holder will have the final say. and new allegations of excessive force after another deadly police shooting, this one in new jersey during a traffic stop. officers ordering the passenger not to move, but he is later shot when he pushes the door open while apparently raising his hands. police say there was a gun in the car. well, the deadline is fast approaching in that hostage crisis overseas. isis militants are threatening to kill two japanese hostages unless japan pays $200 million by early tomorrow morning. japanese officials say they are trying to communicate with isis, but have heard nothing. and rebel fighters in yemen
7:17 am
have reached a peace deal with the american-backed government to end a violent standoff in the capital. the rebels had been holding yemen's president captive. jeb bush and mitt romney have reportedly agreed to meet privately this week. insiders tell "the new york times" the meeting raising the possibility that the meeting could mean they might not run against each other. and finally, what's gotten into will ferrell? during halftime in last night's lakers/pelicans game he slammed a basketball into a cheerleader's face and knocked her out. the crowd was in shock. security in their yellow jackets rushing in, grabbing the actor by the arm, sweeping him off the court. it was so dramatic and, of course, it was because it was all part of a shoot for ferrell's upcoming movie with mark wahlberg called "daddy's home." >> so that was a stuntwoman. >> yeah. >> i didn't know you were supposed to laugh at that.
7:18 am
>> you thought will maybe had gone off the deep end. >> when he punched the baby in "anchorman," it's like one step away from that. >> stuntwoman and underinflated basketball. >> oh, there you go, george. >> never, robin. >> never, never, never. oh, boy, this weather all around. >> you know, an inch or two around washington, d.c. and south jersey, now that storm has moved off. i wanted to give you an idea of what's happening here. that clipper gone but we are drying out and certainly staying cool behind it. at least dry for the next two days, remember saturday is the day that we're watching that potential nor'easter. 32 for pittsburgh today. buffalo goes to 28. detroit, 31, and grand rapids, at 32. you know who is warming up? everybody west of that storm. los angeles gets into the 80s for the weekend, denver goes from the 30s up to the 60s by the time we reach our sunday so things are looking up. back out to the southwest.

>> hello, i am meteorologist mike nicco with the bay area forecast. after a colorful morning it will be sunny and mild this afternoon and fewer foggy spots to contend with in the morning and spring warmth and record highs are possible this weekend especially san jose south where we see 67 in morgan hill and 67 in oakland, the warm spots today. how about tonight? low-to-mid 40's inland and mid-to-upper 40's elsewhere and the seven-day forecast shows temperatures will top out sunday cooler weather next >> i have a big correction.
7:20 am
will ferrell didn't punch a baby in "anchorman." he punched a baby in "the campaign." >> there you go. >> glad you cleared that up. >> twitter, stand down. coming up, a millionaire businessman accused of killing his wife going on trial for the third time. his children standing by his side. and look at this real estate agent caught on camera. it looks like she's stealing prescription drug medicine. what you can do to protect your home. plus, courage under fire. an officer shot during a routine traffic stop speaking out for the first time. it's an abc news exclusive. and the games have begun but has the first super bowl commercial gone too far? has the first super bowl commercial gone too far?

good morning, america and right now, patriots coach bill belichick speaking out about that super scandal this morning as more allegations emerge. also right now, massive fire raging overnight destroying an apartment complex forcing a thousand people from their homes. and the albuquerque police officer shot during a traffic stop speaking out for the first time this morning about his terrifying ordeal. it's an abc news exclusive as we do say good morning, america, on this thursday morning as we like to say, friday eve. and we do have a lot to get to. now companies are jumping into the deflate-gate controversy. amy has that in "the speed feed" for us this morning. >> oh, yes, can't wait to bring that to you. people are very creative. >> i would imagine so. but we'll begin with a new york man going on trial for the third time for the murder of his
7:31 am
wife more than 13 years ago. the verdict was guilty in the first two trials but both convictions were thrown out. his children have been standing behind him throughout. abc's matt gutman has that story for us. >> reporter: on september 11th, 2001, the wife of millionaire businessman cal harris vanished. michele harris' van was found at the foot of the family's driveway but there was no trace of the mother of four. >> this is just an absolute living nightmare. nobody should have to go through this. >> reporter: but with the couple going through a nasty divorce, suspicion quickly fell on cal harris. >> i knew they were focusing on me. i had been completely cooperative with them. >> reporter: police scoured the family's 250-acre property in upstate new york but never found michele's body or a murder weapon. the investigation dragged on for four more years until 2005 when cal harris was arrested for the murder of his wife. >> it was a shock. we knew there wasn't any
7:32 am
evidence so we didn't know how they could possibly get an indictment. >> reporter: at his first trial prosecutors argue that tiny amounts of blood found in the harris home suggested michele had been attacked there by her husband. a jury found cal harris guilty of second degree murder but before he could be sentenced, a new witness came forward with new information. claiming to have seen michele arguing with a man who was not her husband on the day she disappeared. leading the judge to throw out that guilty verdict, and in the new trial, cal harris was again found guilty. and shockingly, that conviction was overturned, as well, by an appeals court. today 13 years later harris' third trial begins. did you kill michele? >> absolutely not. absolutely not. and the fact that i'm sitting here and having to go through this is just a horror show. >> reporter: but two juries have found you guilty. >> two juries that haven't gotten all the information. >> what the jury will say when
7:33 am
they take a look at the entire case is that the police investigation was wanting and that there were other leads that the police should have followed up. had they followed those leads, the case might actually be solved. >> reporter: standing by him, him and michele's four children who believe their father did not kill their mother. >> did you ever ask him what happened that day? >> no, absolutely not. >> why? >> we didn't have any doubt. he wasn't involved. >> reporter: for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, new york. >> okay, matt, thanks for that. we're going to turn to realtors behaving badly. one caught on camera taking things from a home she was supposed to be showing. not the first time we've seen this happen as linzie janis reports. >> reporter: she may look right at home, but police say the woman rifling through this pantry is actually virginia realtor sara reeves allegedly using her easy access to this upscale home to steal prescription drugs.
7:34 am
they say reeves takes the bottle into the kitchen pouring the pain medicine into her own container, then putting the bottle back. surveillance video also capturing this possible clue. reeves walks into the home wearing a coat and hat but only puts on those yellow gloves once she's inside. those gloves preventing fingerprints maybe but not preventing reeves from being caught red-handed by the homeowners. >> you trust the people that come into your house and it was just kind of shocking. >> reporter: randy and emma say they just installed cameras after some jewelry went missing during an open house. >> i called the police department and it was highly illegal activity that she was involved in. >> reporter: reeves now charged with felony possession of a narcotic and larceny and is not the only realtor accused of behaving badly. >> realtor accused of a despicable crime. >> stealing. >> stealing. >> stealing. >> reporter: these agents caught on camera stealing jewelry in arizona and pilfering, yep,
7:35 am
prescription drugs in florida. so how do you make sure your realtor is less like these guys and more like, well, "modern family's" phil dunphy. >> i've been in your house when you weren't home. no, i'm not a burglar. i'm a realtor. >> reporter: experts say check with other customers. were they happy then research online. look for recent reviews on zillow and yelp. but what about other realtors like reeves who wasn't the listing agent for the home? experts say consider asking your agent to be present at all showings. a trusted set of eyes to prevent a scene like this. for "good morning america," linzie janis, abc news, new york. >> crazy. >> linzie had good suggestions. now, let's go to amy in the social square with "the speed feed." >> good morning. it's the story dominating

8:18 am
prescription glasses, explaining, "my eyes would jump four words and go back two words." that's when doctors told her she had dyslexia. jennifer says, "i felt like all of my childhood trauma-dies, tragedies, dramas were explained." dyslexia is a learning disorder where people have difficulty reading and struggle converting words into sounds. experts say it can often go undiagnosed until adulthood. but jen's not the only hollywood heavyweight with dyslexia. even her fiancee justin thoreau says he's dyslexic along with channing tatum, orlando bloom and whoopi goldberg who opened up about it on "gma" in 2013. >> i learned to read late because i'm dyslexic and reading was tough. so, once i learned to read, i just sort of drank it up. >> reporter: and despite it being tough, the "horrible bosses" star didn't let it hold her back. >> yet, it hasn't prevented her from making an extraordinary life for herself. >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles.
8:19 am
>> and abc news chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser joins us with more on this. good to see you, rich. jen diagnosed in her 20s. that's not uncommon, is it? >> unfortunately, it's not but every time you hear one of these stories, it's really a tragedy because when a child doesn't learn that they're having -- that they have a learning difference, it can lead to problems with self-esteem. they can think that they're not smart but there's absolutely no connection between intelligence and dyslexia but that's not how children feel when they're not able to learn in the same way as other kids. >> it's got to be especially difficult for an actress that has to read and memorize descriptions. >> children develop coping mechanisms so oftentimes you'll see they're able to take in information that they hear and memorize it and spit it back but as you were saying, whoopi goldberg, a terrific actress, has dyslexia. tom cruise suffers from dyslexia. there are people in every single field who have dyslexia and
8:20 am
they've learned ways around that so that it doesn't hold them back. >> channing tatum, as well has it, he deals with it. >> a lot of people think of the switching of letters or reversing numbers but there are a lot more symptoms a parent should look for. >> there really are. as a pediatrician i'm always looking for learning disabilities because it can have such an impact on a child's life if you pick it up early but it is more than reversing letters so in preschool children, what you'll often see, a child can't learn nursery rhymes. they have trouble with rhyming. it's not that letter reversal it's how your brain processes information you're taking in for reading and for some reason rhyming is one of those things and then the next thing you'll see is trouble learning letters and reading out loud so much more than that. >> there's help out there for adults diagnosed later. >> exactly. don't put it off and say it's too late. you can learn coping mechanisms. ways to learn better for you and also understand why you didn't like school when other kids did and that could be very, very helpful. >> very helpful information. i'm glad she came out. >> i'm glad you're here too.
