7:04 am
and redemption and hope to come out of this a better and stronger man for all of you. >> reporter: the 37-year-old said he struggled with alcoholism and that the disease runs in his family. >> i've been dealing with this off and on for years. i grew up with a mom who struggled with alcoholism. it is not an easy thing to deal with. i don't want my son to go through that. >> reporter: noticeably missing from radel's side was his wife amy. earlier in washington d.c., he appeared in court and pled guilty to cocaine possession. according to the u.s. attorney for the district of columbia while investigating drug trafficking this fall agents learned radel was routinely using and buying cocaine. prosecutors say that on the night of october 29th, radel met with an acquaintance of hims and an undercover police officer. the officer told radel he had cocaine to sell. radel agreed to purchase about
7:05 am
3.5 grams for $250. boehner and others have not called on the first-term congressman to resign. but radel's hometown paper, "the fort myers news press" said the former news anchor needs to step down writing he purposely kept hidden these addictions that would automatically would make him an ineffective leader. he misled everyone. gop aides tell us they thil he'll be able to get through this and keep his job. he said he plans to go into intensive treatment and he'll donate his salary while he's gone to charity. norah and charlie? >> nancy, thank you. this morning alex rodriguez says the commissioner of baseball is out to get him. the new york yankees superstar facing a suspension that could end his career stormed out of his appeal hearing yesterday. he then went on live tv and radio to deny charges that he used performance enhancing drugs. jeff glor is with us. jeff, good morning. >> norah, good morning to you. rodriguez sat quietly through two weeks of testimony.
7:06 am
then came yesterday's scene. after he was officially told major league baseball commissioner bud selig would not testify. >> i lost my mind. i banged the table and kicked a briefcase and slammed out of the room. >> reporter: then alex rodriguez headed to wfan radio where for 40 minutes he aired his frustrations. >> whether you're in federal court, state court or kangaroo court that we are today, players need protection. this is my whole life, my legacy. i'm -- i'm part of history. so if you're going to try to destroy all of that i'm saying no, you tell me why i should serve one inning. >> reporter: rodriguez was suspended earlier this year for 211 games. a suspension he appealed. in his strongest denial yet on wednesday, he insisted he never used performance enhancing drugs while playing for the yankees. >> were you guilty of any of these charges? >> no p. >> did you do anything wrong in. >> did you do any peds? >> no. >> did you obstruct any
7:07 am
witnesses? did you do anything they accuse of you doing? >> no. >> nothing? >> nothing. >> you're guilty in your mind of nothing? >> i feel like i should be there opening day. >> reporter: rodriguez also took a big swing at baseball commissioner bud selig who will not be compelled to testify at rodriguez's grievance. >> 100% personal and i think it's about his legacy and my legacy, and he's trying to destroy me. by the way, he's retiring 2014. and to put me on his big mantel on his way out, that's a hell of a trophy. >> reporter: in august selig told reporters he has no regrets about suspending rodriguez. >> i spent many, many hours thinking about it trying to be fair trying to be logical and rational, and one thing you learn in this job, after 20-some years, i wouldn't second-guess it today at all. >> reporter: as for why selig won't be taking the stand, major league baseball issued this statement yesterday. "in the entire history of the joint drug agreement, the commissioner has not testified in a single case. today's antics are an obvious attempt to justify mr. rodriguez's continuing refusal
7:08 am
to testify under oath." rodriguez was supposed to meet with major league baseball last friday and explain what his testimony would be. he said then he had the flu and couldn't travel. he said yesterday he was prepared to testify tomorrow. but now apparently will not. regardless of whether or not rodriguez is there in person the hearing will continue today. norah and charlie? >> thank you. we are learning new details this morning about an 85-year-old korean war veteran being held in north korea. merrill newman is a retired finance executive from california. his family says he went to pyongyang, north korea's capital last month for a ten-day trip. margaret brennan is at the state department. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. the u.s. does not have diplomatic relations with north korea. so the state department asked sweden, a country that deals directly with president kim jong-un's government to help. beyond that the state department says they are just monitoring reports about the bay area man who is being held.
7:09 am
it's been nearly one month since 85-year-old korean war veteran merrill newman was unexpectedly taken off his flight bound from north korea to the u.s. his family and friends back in palo alto, california haven't seen him since. >> i feel like it's a bad movie or something. i still can't believe that it's real. >> reporter in a telephone interview with cnn, newman's son, jeff, revealed that merrill discussed his military service with north korean authorities the day before he was removed from his flight. why he was arrested remains a mystery. >> we haven't heard anything. we've worked through the state department from the day that he was supposed to depart. we've heard nothing. >> reporter: merrill's detention coms just a year after the arrest and imprisonment of another american kenneth bay. he was sentenced to 15 years in a north korean labor camp for allegedly plotting against the
7:10 am
government. >> this is unfortunately a kind of barbaric behavior on the part of the north koreans. you have to wonder why this happens. >> reporter: the state department has not formally acknowledged merrill's arrest. but did issue a heightened travel advisory earlier this week that read in part "u.s. citizens crossing into north korea have been subject to arbitrary arrest and long-term detention." the man merrill was traveling with released a statement, calling on north koreans to release him back to his family as soon as possible. yesterday the white house national security adviser susan rice gave a speech saying the u.s. is ready to begin negotiations with north korea about its nuclear program. but made no mention of the two detained americans. >> all right margaret thank you. and after a year of negotiations, the u.s. and afghanistan have reached a tentative security agreement. the deal allows u.s. troops to remain in the country after the nato combat mission ends next year. the u.s. will conduct
7:11 am
counterterrorism missions and train afghan forces. it would mean about 10,000 troops could be deployed in afghanistan for up to a decade. american forces will have immunity from afghan law. now, the deal still needs approval from afghan tribal leaders. president hamid karzai shared a letter from president obama saying the pact will lead to a better future for afghanistan, but this morning, karzai says he won't sign the deal until after elections in the spring. in neighboring pakistan, a suspected american drone strike killed five people this morning including three militants. police say three rockets were fired onnen islamic seminary. a deputy to the leader of the network is among the dead. if confirmed, it would be only the second drone attack on a pakistani target outside its tribal region. kennedy cousin michael skakel could be released from prison as soon as today. skakel has served more than 11 years for the 1975 murder of his neighbor martha moxley. >> a judge in connecticut will
7:12 am
decide this morning whether skakel should be freed on bail. after his conviction was overturned last month. rikki klieman is a cbs news legal analyst. likely? >> highly unlikely. the family believes he'll be released today. what you have are questions on bond after new motion for trial was granted. number one is he a danger to the community, and in number two, is he a flight risk? we certainly know he's not a flight risk because he has all kinds of community ties through his family and we know he's not a danger to the community for good reason. 1975 was the crime. 2002 is the conviction he was free all of that time. he's been in prison since 2002. and he's been a model prisoner. so the logic is he is going to be released in a packed courthouse today. >> wow.pso if he's released do you think the prosecution even appeals it? >> yes, the prosecution has said they are going to appeal it.
7:13 am
and what they're going to appeal is this decision that he was granted a new trial. therefore, in essence, presumed innocent. it's like he's never been arrested. and they're going to appeal it because the reason for granting it was ineffective assistance of counsel. saying that mickey sherman did not do an adequate job under the constitution. well, he may not have done the job the judge wanted to do but you know you may be entitled to a good lawyer a not-so-good lawyer. you're not necessarily entitled to a rolls royce lawyer. >> i keep thinking about martha moxley's mother, you know who has pushed for justice this whole time. were there any other suspects? >> there were other suspects. originally tommy skakel michael's brother, was a suspect and was quite a suspect for years. and in fact the judge, in granting this motion to give michael skakel a new trial, one of the primary reasons they said was because the finger was not pointed at tommy skakel.
7:14 am
another suspect at the time was ken littleton. he was a tutor of martha moxley. but ultimately they decided it was michael. if they are going to pursue a new trial and the appeal is not successful and retry him again, which believe me, if i were prosecuting and could talk to mrs. moxley it's really a question of does dorothy moxley this woman of grace, this woman who has conducted herself so beautifully, does she want to go through this again? >> all right. rikki klieman, thank you. this morning the faa is investigating a boeing cargo flight that landed at the wrong airport. the 747 dreamlifter was traveling to mcconnell air force base near wichita, but the pilots touched down at a tiny airport nine miles away. officials say the 747 should have enough runway space to try and take off this morning after landing at the wrong airport. a jetblue plane is being inspected this morning after an
7:15 am
emergency slide deployed during a flight wednesday. the slide inflated 25 minutes into the trip from fort myers, florida, to boston. the pilots diverted to orlando. the chute filled the front gallery behind the cockpit and pinned the flight attendant. >> we heard a loud bang. and the next thing we knew there was someone on the floor. we didn't know if it was a medical emergency or what. we knew something wasn't right. >> a passenger punctured the slide and freed the crew member who suffered minor injuries. everyone else took another plane to boston. and the government is announcing long-awaited safety rules to protect bus passengers. under the new regulations, all new motor coaches and other large buses must be equipped with three-point lap shoulder belts. but the rules do not take effect until 2016. and existing buses are not required to be retrofitted with seat belts. chip reid is at washington's union station. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, norah and charlie. this has been a very long time coming.
7:16 am
it was 45 years ago that federal crash investigators first recommended putting seat belts on buses after a horrific accident in california that killed 19 bus passengers. and even with this new rule a lot of people getting on buses and looking for seat belts are going to be disappointed. federal investigators say crash tests show that the new rule requiring lap and shoulder seat belts will cut the number of deaths and injuries resulting from bus accidents almost in half. it's easy to see why. the crash test dummy on the left is belted in. the one on the right is not. ann farrow heads the federal motor carrier safety administration. >> car drivers today are buckling up at a rate of 86%. with this new rule passengers and motorcoaches have the same choice. and we hope they make it. >> reporter: but not all bus passengers will have that choice. the seat belt requirement does not apply to city transit buses or school buses. >> we have now mandated a rule for seat belts on motor coaches,
7:17 am
and it will be up to individual school districts as to how they proceed. >> reporter: in addition the rule doesn't take effect for three years, and even then only new buses will be required to have seat belts. for years, bus companies fought efforts to require seat belts because of the expense. but the tide started to turn in favor of seat belts in 2007. when a bus carrying a baseball team from ohio's bluffton university plummeted off a highway overpass in atlanta, killing seven and injuring 28. now pete pantuso, president of the american bus association, says most bus operators support seat belts, and they're not waiting for the federal government to tell them what to do. >> many of our members are already putting seat belts on their buses and have been for more than a half a dozen years. so it's going to be a continuation of good safety practices. >> reporter: so norah and charlie, the next time you decide to hop on the bus to atlantic city, call ahead and make sure that your bus has seat belts. >> all right. nice stand-up there, chip.
7:18 am
thank you. and a poignant ceremony at arlington national cemetery as resident obama paid tribute to president john f. kennedy. he was joined yesterday by first lady michelle obama. bill and hillary clinton and many kennedy relatives. they placed a wreath at the eternal flame, marking kennedy's grave. a bugler played "taps," and tomorrow marks 50 years since kennedy's assassination. this morning's headlines from around the globe. "the orlando sentinel" looks at the apparent end of a cyber bullying investigation. attorneys for two teenage girls accused of harassing her say that charges are now dropped. the girls faced stalking charges after she died in september. billy graham is hospitalized in north carolina this morning with respiratory problems. he celebrated his 95th birthday this month. a family spokesman said graham is expected to return home in a day or two.
7:19 am
online gambling is coming to the garden state today. regulators gave permission to atlantic city's largest casino company to begin a five-day test run. if it goes well anyone 21 or older in new jersey will be able to join in on tuesday. and some good news britain's independent looks at new research on coffee. it finds drinking coffee significantly improves blood flow. researchers say caffeine helps cells function in the walls of the blood vessels. so e still looking at some rainfall around the bay area this morning if you are headed out the door. you may need the umbrella this morning but by the afternoon things quiet down. a lot of clouds over san jose, scattered showers there, too. hi-def doppler radar has been tracking heavy rainfall this morning moving through the east bay and now sliding toward the south bay although it's starting to fall apart just a little bit. temperatures by the afternoon with some partly cloudy skies and dry conditions, into the 50s and the 60s. the winds kicking up though tonight and into tomorrow. but sunny and dry weather for the weekend.

good morning. the san mateo bridge is very slow right now in those
7:28 am
westbound lanes leaving hayward heading towards foster city. the drive time in the yellow 23 minutes between 880 and the peninsula. out towards the bay bridge the backups extend east of the maze. they turned on the metering lights super early after a very early-morning fender-bender. and the ride westbound 580 also stacked up through the livermore valley. they are working to clear an accident approaching vasco road. that's "kcbs traffic." here's lawrence. >> storms continuing to roll through the bay area although we are starting to see a little sunshine beginning to show up i think more of that toward the afternoon this coming from our mount vaca cam but look, you can already see the camera starting to shake a bit. more of those winds on the way, as well. our hi-def doppler radar showing you some heavy storms moving through early on and pockets of downpours. looks like that will continue throughout the morning hours and then by the afternoon, the skies begin to part. 50s and 60s. looks like the winds will be kicking up though tonight, very gusty overnight tonight into tomorrow. much warmer temperatures on the way, though, toward the weekend.

members of the tea party gathered outside to demand the president's impeachment. the president said he appreciated their views and he's setting up a new website where they can voice their opinion. welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up this half how, a new football scandal with racist language at the center of the controversy. it's not the nfl but a high school team. we'll show you why the entire team is being kept off the field. why police often feel they have no choice but to chase them. you could see a tool for putting off the fast-moving stunts for good. the knockout game involves
7:31 am
knocking out people would warning and it is claiming lives. john miller found several disturbing attacks caught on camera. >> reporter: the victims of this brutal game are chosen at random. defenseless unsuspecting people are attacked by a group of teens who have one goal in mind. knock a person out with a one-handed punch. >> one hitter-quitter. >> point them out and knock them out. all names for a disturbing trend now drawing concern nationwide. >> whoever comes knocking down the block, they just knock them out. >> in pittsburgh this teaching was knocked out so hard he crashed head first into the curb. this man in brooklyn was knocked unconscious. even women are being attack. there have been seven rae cent cases in new york city alone and the game has turned fatal in at least four documented attacks. syracuse, chicago, new jersey
7:32 am
and hoebokenhoboken. they're just 13 and 14 years old. jeffrey butt specializes in it. >> we know from brain studies that the part of the brain that gets fired up through excitement and thrill seeking actually develops more quickly and develops more quickly than the other part of your brain which comes along a few years late cher comes along with judgment and discretion. >> reporter: he says there's no real pattern but they're always alone and they stand out. >> the victims are someone the young people consider to be an other. it could be a racial difference religious difference, age difference. it could be a class difference. >> reporter: nothing in the so-called knockout game is about a fair fight. so if it's not about toughness and notable courage, what is it about? >> i think teenagers get
7:33 am
involved in the game to prove their manhood and ironically what it ends up doing is proving they're still children. >> john miller is with us. how widespread is this? >> it's hard to tell. first of all, if you look for it in the statistics there's no cutout for the knockout game in the numbers. they're categorized as assaults. and there's another problem. you know police commissioner here ray kelly yesterday said we're going to be talking to the health department to see if there may be more cases than we're aware of. one of first things you forget when you were knocked out cold is what it was that knocked you out. if you're in a fight for five minutes you might remember. but if you're just walking down the street and the next thing you're on the sidewalk and you don't know how you got there, there could be cases they're not aware of. i talked to people around the country yesterday and it's just below their radar. it's only in a few cities. >> how will police combat it. >> it's a hard one because do you follow groups of kids
7:34 am
walking down the street? it is not -- it is a difficult pattern crime to do against. >> thisern mog the fbi is investigating a hate crime involving a high school football player. racist graffiti was found scrawled on his home last week. his family believes his own teammate mace be responsibility. now they're taking extraordinary measures. elaine quijano. they're also looking into another aleveraged racist incident. so citing safety concerns the district stood by its decision to cancel the last game of the season. at the school meeting the blue knights football season was not on the agenda but it was a topic almost everyone wanted to discuss. >> not letting us play our last game makes the rest of the world assume that we are guilty.
7:35 am
>> it doesn't make sense to me to cancel a game that's a tradition for these kids. >> reporter: the move comes just days after the parents of 13-year-old isaac phillips a fullback on the junior varsity team found a spray painted message on his home saying knights don't need the "n" word. cently his cleats were thrown in the trash and his bicycle tires slashed. the school district decided to force the rest of the season. isaac isaac's father anthony phillips believes canneslingceling the game is the right decision. >> we didn't ask for it. >> how does it make it better if the football team doesn't play this game. >> my hope is it has enough
7:36 am
pressure, you know that the person that did this steps forward. >> the district is also looking forward into claims that members of the blue knights called him the "n" word at a recent game. school officials said it would be inappropriate for the team to play the rest of its games. in a statement the district said, to isaac phillips and his family, we are deeply sorry. the school committee says the investigation is focused broadly and not limited to members of the football team. norah, charlie? >> elaine thank you. time is running out for the inwither of a power ball jackpot. millions are at stake. mark strassmann shows us why it's not first time someone could be passing up a fortune. >> reporter: florida lottery officials are trying to scratch

7:38 am
it. >> reporter: in $201140 billion won nation wide. $800 million, about 2% was never claimed. >> this is the largest unclaimed florida power ball jackpot since we joined the the game in 2009. >> reporter: by friday morning much of the money will go back to the lottery turning the lucky numbers into one big goose egg. for "cbs this morning," mark strassmann strassmann. >> this is a perfect example of you buy the ticket and wash your jeans. my mother always said check your pocket before you wash your clothes. >> good advice from your mom. one of the most controversial tools for fighting crime could come to a screeching halt. >> reporter: james bond might have used something like this. this is what local law enforcement is using to slow

this is a video of driver brian gillespie taking part in a dry lake race in southern california. he was going nearly 200 mile' hour when his car started to turn over and over and over. he suffered a collapsed lung in last week's accident but he's crediting the built-in safety cage with saving him. >> and last week. it could mean the end of chases as we know them. jeff, good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah.

this is the device. the company calls it star chase. by launching one of these gps cannons on the back of a suspect's car. police are able to slow down and pull away while they receive near real time tracking information, eliminating the need for dangerous high-speed pursuit. trooper tim sealman is the first and only law enforcement official in the state of iowa to use star chase. >> i have a deployment on it. >> in october sealman tag add truck as he noted it was driving recklessly. he backed off and waited. with the help of omaha and star chase, the suspect was arrested. >> it's very easy to use. four buttons. put it on put your laser where you want. arm it fire. >> step on the car for me. >> officers are often forced to let suspects go or use a variety of other tools including stop
7:45 am
sticks or driving into a suspect's car to slow it down. >> we're finding that more and more pursuits are very dangerous. they're crossing the center line taking vehicles head on. that's just a place we don't want to be. with the star chase system it allows us to keep ourselves out of that danger. >> here we go. >> the institute of justice found that 75% of the suspects who institute add chase said they would slow down in two minutes if they no longer felt they were being pursued. the trooper has seen that first hand. >> once you back off and they don't think you're chasing them any longer they slow down and want to blend into traffic. >> reporter: a recent court rule ruling under the fourth meant amendment says you can't attach something to a vehicle without
7:46 am
