federal requirement which says, if there is a sentence that is more than 90 days, if he has family in a place like florida, if he has got a job in a place like florida, all these possible things, which could require florida to take him, and i think just the fact that residents or family in florida is going to mean that florida is going to have to take him despite the attorney general's lack of desire to have o.j. simpson in florida. >> she expressed her lack of desire but also o.j.'s lawyer was aggressive in attacking her. >> i mean, he cursed her out publicly. i don't know if that's particularly helpful. he is claiming this is about race, about not wanting a black man in florida. i thinks that a little bit of a tough argument for his lawyer to win here. so i don't know that his lawyer is helping the cause but the reality is that i think as a matter of law, florida is going to have to take him so no matter what o.j.'s lawyer says or doesn't say isn't going to make that much of a difference. >> do you think he'll be able to stay out of trouble?
7:37 am
>> that's the question. there are a lot of requirements. he has to not do drugs. he's going to have to go in for possible alcohol testing. he is allowed to drink but not in excess. there will be questions about who are you associating with? you can't associate with known criminals. so there's a whole list of requirements that o.j. simpson is going to have to abide by and he is going to be one of the closely watched parolees in the history of america. >> i'm sure you're right about that. dan, thank you. >> cameras following him all the time. coming up the movie shoot that turned into a real shoot. what happened when a police officer thought he was responding to a 911 call? having moderate to seis not always easy.is it's a long distance run and you have the determination to keep going. humira has a proven track record of being prescribed for nearly ten years. it's the number one prescribed biologic by dermatologists. more than 250,000 patients have chosen humira to fight their psoriasis. and they're not backing down. for most patients clearer skin is the proof. humira can lower your ability to fight infections

>> we're doing a movie. >> reporter: eventually he raises his arms, his back against the wall then gets down on the ground. >> i was scared. i seen my life flash in front of me. >> reporter: crawfordsville police say they were responding to a 911 call about a robbery in progress, and they were never notified about the movie production. >> let's just say this never happened. okay. >> reporter: the film company sharing this footage exclusively with abc news of the scene that sparked that violent confrontation with police. >> you don't know it's a movie scene, how are you supposed to react? i know if it was my situation i had a probably do the same thing he did. >> drop the gun now. drop the gun. >> reporter: after reviewing the video authorities decided not to file charges against anyone involved. >> find fault between both people. you know, the producer of not notifying the police and the policeman of not giving me the chance to react without firing
7:43 am
but emotionally, i just keep playing it over and over and over in my head on how lucky i am to still be alive. >> lucky, indeed. the movie company responded to that harrowing ordeal by thanking police for their quick action on what they thought was a real robbery. police say in the future they want to be notified of any film productions that have to do with a toy gun. >> a crazy story. >> amazing no one was hurt. >> we've seen you on the weekends. welcome to weekdays. >> thank you so much. good to be here. >> thank you, erielle. up next on our big board, why are your atm fees skyrocketing? >> why? >> i don't know. we'll tell you what to do to protect your money. keep your moolah in your pocket. >> what's in your wallet? otect your money. keep your moolah in your pocket. the fresh tomato salsa. and the hand-mashed guac. but did you see this coming? if you did... you probably work at chipotle.

oh, my, we are learning so much about rebecca jarvis. >> uh-huh. >> back now with our big board and the skyrocketing atm fees that could be hitting your bank account. >> it's not just one fee, that's the thing. it's more than one and abc's rebecca jarvis is here with how closely you should watch your balance. good morning to you, rebecca. >> good morning. >> you know what, fees, more than one fee. what is that all about? >> they are now, michael and robin, at an all-time high and could cost you hundreds of dollars a year. the good news, though, you can totally avoid them if you know what to watch out for. if you feel like some atms are getting more than they're giving -- >> they're too high. i don't think there should be such a high fee. it shouldn't be more than $1.50. >> reporter: it's not just in your head. >> i have seen an increase in
7:48 am
bank atm fees, so i try to avoid it altogether. >> reporter: according to a new report from bankrate.com out of network atm fees have never been higher. up 55% in just the last decade. >> when you go outside the atm network, you're not usually facing one fee, oftentimes it's two fees, it's a fee from the atm owner as well as what your own bank charges you and together that can easily top $5. >> reporter: for example, using an out of network atm used to cost about $2 in 1998 but today it's more than double to nearly $5. if you're hitting that same atm each week it's almost $250 a year in extra fees. overdraft fees also soaring. the average per incident now $33.38. >> as people transition away from cash and get smarter about how they use their money and make fewer out of network transactions that is also a contributor to the steady increases we see each year.
7:49 am
>> as he was saying we can get around these fees. >> that is the good news. there are a couple of ways to do it. first of all if you bank smaller, for example, with a community bank or a credit union, these usually belong to larger networks so if you go to an atm, double-check because it might actually be in network. you can check it through your bank's website and use a debit card at a point of sale so if you need to get cash, for example, at the grocery store, use that debit card, take some cash out. then finally plan ahead and budget. if you are living on a cash budget, you can actually save money so go to that bank, your bank that you know you can take out money from and budget ahead for the week. >> join a bank that you keep taking out money from right by your house, join that bank. a lot are going cashless. what are other ways to pay for your transactions? >> there are a couple of ways you can use. for example, venmo, google wallet, square pay, all ways you can transfer money between accounts, for example, if i borrowed money from one of you i could transfer money back to you

one of them, in fact, is even hit. all this comes as we learn about paddock's meticulous planning ahead of this attack, and including that arsenal of 23 weapons, some of them modified into machine guns. thousands of rounds of ammunition, we know he had multiple surveillance cameras set up in his room and outside of it. one of the cameras was able to see a security guard approaching. stephen paddock shot him through the door, but law enforcement is crediting that security guard with thwarting the attack because shortly after that, the shooting stopped, robin. >> thank you. >> president trump travels to las vegas this morning. he is going to meet with first responders, with survivors and their families and cecilia vega is already there on the scene this morning. good morning, cecilia. >> hi, george. good morning to you again. the president and first lady will land here in las vegas in just a few hours from now. they will be hitting that hospital where many people are still recovering.

a recurring role. >> a recurring role for roberts. also in "pop news" could be billionaire versus billionaire in the 2020 election. dallas mavericks owner and "shark tank" star mark cuban is quote, actively considering a run for president. on a podcast called "viewpoint" giving his, he said he is considering, but not ready to commit. he's the owner of the mavericks as i said. he says he is a problem solver but one he may not be able to solve. it's a little tricky. his wife. that may be his first campaign stop and could be his last if she doesn't get on board. right now he's putting the odds at only 10%. cuban as you may know, he was very vocal and supported hillary clinton in the last election and he has been also very vocal in his opposition to president trump. to be continued on that one. >> did you hear that about michelle obama? >> yes. >> his wife only 10 so he's not doing it. >> he is a very convincing guy. >> every married man understands. >> the first time i wrote it i said behind every man is an even
8:14 am
greater woman so i do agree he has a big hurdle to overcome. then finally in "pop news" this morning, life is pretty darned good for current "jeopardy" champ austin rogers with his mop of brown curls and his full beard he is a hoot. the bartender from new york city is on a major winning streak thanks to his encyclopedia-like knowledge. kids, an encyclopedia is a book that we used to look at. he was asked last night whose nelson mandela? >> did you bet big? >> yeah. >> $34,000 gives you $69,000 now and you're over a quarter million. $257,700, and you will play again. >> yeah. >> he should be dancing. >> did you see? >> he should be dancing. six straight wins in a row and he keeps on going on "jeopardy" until he loses, to be continued tonight.

>> that looks like a single man dance. who's that? >> not going to be single for long. it is time now for our cover story, struggling with infertility. in her new memoir gabrielle union reveals she has endured failed ivf cycles and several miscarriages. abc's diane macedo has the story. >> reporter: on the small screen gabrielle union plays a successful single tv journalist fighting her way to the top. >> why are you so okay with me getting the credit for this? >> reporter: but off camera facing a different battle. in the latest issue of "people" magazine, the bet star is revealing her personal struggle with infertility. the 44-year-old admits over the years she suffered nine miscarriages and gone through eight cycles of ivf. none successful. for three years my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant. i've either been about to go into an ivf cycle, in the middle of an ivf cycle or coming out of an ivf cycle. >> going through as many miscarriages and ivf treatments as gabrielle has has put her body and her mind through a lot
8:16 am
of turmoil, but she says she's not going to give up. >> reporter: the hollywood actress is half of one of the most glamorous couples on the planet. she and her husband dwyane wade have been happily married since 2014. union, who is a loving stepmother to his sons, says even though she's bursting with joy at her kids' milestones she never wanted children until she met dwyane. >> i was afraid to be attached a man for life if our relationship didn't work out. i was fulfilled raising children, a joy i never saw coming. wanting to have babies with dwyane was a natural desire built on that joy. >> she said she's fallen in love with motherhood and loves doing basketball games and helping with homework. >> reporter: despite her struggles she continues to remain hopeful. this child we want to have has been loved even as an idea. each attempt at ivf is a loving a, action, so we remain here bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we
8:17 am
both have been wanting. >> thanks diane for that. welcome to dr. jessica shepherd. you know, she's 44 years old. on average, what are the chances for someone that age? >> we come equipped from birth born with all the eggs we'll have throughout our lifetime so when we talk about pregnancy we talk about the chances of getting pregnant per month so in your 20s, if you look here, that's about a 25% chance of getting pregnant in a month. now, when we get to our 30s that will decrease and drop to about 10% chance of getting pregnant per month. then if you look over here to the 40s, that again is going to diminish and that is about a 5% chance of becoming pregnant in a month. >> so the odds start to go down. she's had several ivf attempts. so far, it hasn't worked for her. what are the risks of that? >> so the risk of ivf, everyone goes to their doctor and goes through ivf for different reasons, whether it's a medical condition or whether they're unable to conceive over multiple spontaneous chances of pregnancy so there are risks that come with ivf. obviously it's a procedure. it goes through a lot of different hormonal changes.
8:18 am
some of those risks would be those ovaries are really working overtime and so sometimes those ovaries can be overstimulated and sometimes when you get all those hormones the injections and some of the pills you have to take your mood is really going to shift and see it go up, see it down. she alludes to some of that in her book as well, going through that with dwyane obviously going through those mood changes and lastly, abdominal bloating and -- >> does the fact it hasn't worked seven or eight times mean it won't work the next time? >> that's something that will be different for her whether she has a medical condition, what she's discussed with her doctor, but, again, you have to understand that every time is a different chance. so she needs to talk to her doctor about the risks of going through that now eight times. >> you also have that emotional toll. >> emotional toll. we don't take that into account many times, and some of these women after they fail ivf can be depressed or anxious. so 10% of women feel they have some type of major depression after failing. >> real complication. dr. jessica shepherd, thanks very much.

[ applause ] you have had an absolutely incredible, incredible life. but i want to take you back to the big moment when you got the coaching job as the inside line backer coach for the arizona cardinals. what was it like? were the players skeptical? >> i have to give a lot of credit to the guys. they were so excited. they were actually like, you know, they'd come up and be like coach jen, i checked out your highlight reel. you were a beast off the edge. you know as athletes, that's the greatest gift that we can give
8:50 am
is, like, all right. i'm going to invest and check you out. see what you can do. they knew a lot about me but they didn't know what it was going to be like interpersonally. those are the trenches. it's something where we spend a lot of time together, got to get down and dirty and the last thing you want is for there to be that kind of first date awkward, right, where everybody is walking around on egg shells and nobody acts like themselves. >> i've been there. >> don't know if we can hold hands yet. we can't joke and so one of the things i wanted them to know is that it was going to be easy and we'll laugh a lot because some things are just different but i would do that and when you're the odd person out you can do that. >> before you got the job one question coach arians did have for was can you read the guys' eyes? what did he mean when he asked you that? >> bruce goes back to his time as a bartender and being able to see people for what they are, what they need, what's different and so reading somebody's eyes realized that not all players react the same, you know, can you look at a guy and see, you
8:51 am
know, what that coach might have gotten him a little bit and he needs a pat on the back or the next guy, hey, you might need to get fired up and bruce loves the fact that i had my masters in sports psychology and phd and i honestly think that was ultimately what gave him the confidence to take that big step. >> you made history as well. you're the first female to play in a men's pro football league. indoor football league. >> as a running back. >> as a running back. >> as a running back. there have been kickers before and some other stuff. >> the physical demands of that, how were you able to -- that's like me hitting you every day. >> yep. it was painful. >> painful. >> i bounce well. >> that's an amazing accomplishment. but while you were playing women's professional football, you also -- you went and got your masters, your ph.d. all that while you were playing. >> yeah. >> what was the driving factor? what drove you so hard to do what you've done as far as getting your ph.d. and masters but also to excel in a sport that's dominated by men.
8:52 am
>> you know, when i made my first football team it was the sport i had loved my whole life probably like you did when you saw it for the first time. i was like, oh, these are the heros, but i didn't have the opportunity to play. when i made that first team, the promise i made is that i would step up to every challenge. no matter what it was. now i had no idea what i was getting myself into when i made that promise. right? but what i saw is because there wasn't really a place for women on the field that i could take that practical experience from playing and get my masters and my ph.d. so i'd have the theoretical knowledge to go with it so be kind of like a unique combination of somebody who could help players such as yourself because it's a different world and a lot of people don't understand those unique pressures. >> i tell you right now you understand it. you've done it. you've proven you're original, one of a kind. yes. and "play big" is in book stores nationwide. make sure you go check it out. dr. jen welter. we'll be right back.
