>> and i'm scott mcgrew. marcus washington has had the week off. we're headed into the weekend. let's get a check of your traffic and your weather. >> the weather looks really nice, starting out with some clear skies, a little bit clearer as you head out this morning, from the north bay in to san francisco, golden gate bridge is looking nice. and so we're just going to see a few clouds for the next couple of hours and then clearing out. if you're headed out the door in fremont, expect some low 60s. headed into the upper 70s by early afternoon, with our highs today anywhere from 90 in ukiah to 65 in half moon bay. i'll sort it out as you make weekend plans. mike, you're seeing a south bay slowdown. >> i am. north 101 just north of 680/280, the overpass there is. i just saw an ambulance flashing lights travel past us, up toward presumably mckee, with reports of a crash involving a motorcycle but the detail in the report says the rider is in the center divide area, moved out of the lane, and so it does sound like the driver is able to get around. we'll track that, minor slowing aside from the camera shot.
the issue in sunol and another by the san mateo bridge. i want to you to see you can live it up here at the bay bridge toll plaza. no metering lights. back to you. >> thank you, mike. an overnight standoff in the south bay is over but not before a man held police at bay for four hours. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us live in milpitas with the details on what was understandably a chaotic night for residents there. >> reporter: yes, hi there, scott and laura. you can see the window here behind me, that is where the flash bang grenades went in before the s.w.a.t. team could go in and take that suspect into custody. officers had to toss in that flash bang grenade in order to get the s.w.a.t. officers inside to get that man. it happened about 3:30 this morning on north temple drive off east calaveras boulevard but it started around 11:30 last night when a woman was attacked with a large knife just down the
street from here. when officers arrived at the suspect's home to question him, he just refused to come out. >> after four hours, we were able to finally make contact with him through a window of the apartment. he refused to come out, and our s.w.a.t. team members were able to make entry into his room and safely take him into custody. >> reporter: the woman who was attacked earlier is going to be okay. she has non-life-threatening injuries. officers are still questioning that suspect as we speak. they say at this point, they don't know why that man might have attacked that woman or what connection they might have, but at this point t seems like they didn't know each other. in milpitas, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> interesting. thanks so much, kris. it's 6:02. president trump facing more fallout from those "send her back" chants that broke out at his rally earlier this week. this morning he's trying to disconnect himself from what happened. "today in the bay's" tracie potts is live in washington with the latest. good morning. >> scott, good morning.
he's also tweeting this morning that the warm and huge welcome that congresswoman omar received, one of the targets of the chants, the target of those chance, that that warm welcome was staged. meantime, the president suggesting that some of his own supporters may have taken it too far. >> i was not happy with it. >> reporter: president trump distancing himself. >> send her back! >> reporter: from "send her back" chants at his campaign rally wednesday, aimed at congresswoman ilhan omar, a somali refugee. >> i disagree with it but again i didn't say that. they did. >> reporter: the president tweeted that omar, an american citizen, should go back to her country. instead -- >> welcome home ilhan. welcome home, ilhan. >> reporter: she went home to this explosive welcome in minnesota. >> when i said i was the president's nightmare, well, you're watching it now, because
his nightmare is seeing a somali immigrant refugee rise to congress! >> reporter: back in congress lawmakers are split over whether the trump crowd crossed the line. >> the chant was offensive. it's just wrong. >> he never joined in it and you want to try to hold him accountable? >> the president put millions of americans in danger. >> and every time i hear him say things like "go back where you came from" i literally can feel the same pain that i felt as an 11-year-old. >> reporter: new words bringing up old fears, leaving president trump on defense. now the president said he tried to talk quickly when the chants broke out but the video shows it went on for a full 13 seconds before he did. scott? >> 13, all right, tracie, thank you much. >> it is 6:04 right now. new details in the case of an off-duty ride share driver charged in a string of sexual
assaults. police call orlando vilchez lazo the ride share rapist. they say he preyed on intoxicated women who thought they were getting into lyft or uber cars they ordered. it happened in san francisco. the judge this week heard testimony on whether dna obtained by authority should be allowed as evidence. instead of issuing a ruling, the judge called for more hearings and plans to make a decision at a later date. we're following developments on a disturbing discovery in the south bay. san jose police officers were doing a trespassing sweep along the river in guadalupe river park yesterday and discovered a woman's body. police say this is being investigated as a suspicious death. right now, a search is on for a man who stole an amazon delivery van in the east bay. chp says the van was taken from el cebrante last week. there were about 70 packages in that van. officers eventually found the
van outside a house with all but one package gone. someone believes they helped unload the packages is now under arrest but looking for the man who actually stole the truck. there say follow-up in the fight to bring a homeless shelter to the embarcaderembarc. according to "the examiner" a a sacramento judge declined to grant an immediate injunction to a group of neighbors fighting that plan. the judge sent the lawsuit and request for a restraining order back to a san francisco court. the board of supervisors last month denied an appeal from the group. neighbors are concerned the center will bring drugs and crime to the area. some days you just gotta bounce and you'll have the chance to do just that this weekend in morgan hill. the biggest bouncing house in the world is in the bay area this weekend. it's in the "guinness book of world records." it will be at the outdoor sports center starting today through sunday. you have to buy tickets but if you can't catch it this weekend, big bounce america will be in san francisco next month and santa rosa in september.
