1:40 am
says his client was simply training the dog. >> this lady loves these dogs and takes the rescue dogs and she is also a dog trainer. and so, she tries when she starts training the dogs to do it with treats and little benefits and things like that. but sometimes you have to use a different disciplinary approach. >> reporter: dog trainer beverly says that assessment is plain wrong. >> there is no behavioral technique that would help a dog like that. >> reporter: all dogs have been taken out of the woman's care including three of her own. the peninsula humane society says she has been on their radar for a while and this is not the first video evidence they have seen. >> we have had complaints in the last ten years of her inappropriate discipline. we have videos of her smacking a larger dog on the bottom. yanking it by the collars but we didn't feel those rose to the level of this type of cruelty. >> reporter: her attorney maintains that is not the case.
1:41 am
>> she loves these dogs and she would never intentionally hurt any dog. >> reporter: beverly says the real question is how much permanent damage was inflicted. >> the dog ends up going from fear to aggression. they have no other recourse. they don't know what to do when they are treated that way. >> reporter: we tried to get in contact with the woman several times today, but she never answered the door. andria borba, kpix5. a crash on the east bay. this is how a pickup truck landed after an amtrak train crashed into it sending it flying. the violent crash brought trains to a halt. it happened in contra costa county near the orwood resort. cate caugurian was there. >> reporter: the two people injured were not even in the same car. let me walk you through what happened. a man may have been trying to unload a jet ski from his pickup when a train hit him. he flew into the water where a
1:42 am
woman was on a boat. there were 145 people on board the train from bakersfield bound for oakland. am track says no one on the train was hurt. the man and the woman were air lifted to the hospital in walnut creek. this crossing you see behind me is actually a private crossing. that is why you don't see any crossing arms or train notifications. cate caugurian, kpix5. >> when the crews pulled the truck out of the water, there was still debris from the woman's boat wrapped around the wheel. intense flames near livermore today. that is what firefighters battling the so-called tesla fire are facing. this fire broke out yesterday afternoon. firefighters have made some ground on it. it is now 45% contained. 2500 acres have gone up. earlier, we saw from chopper 5, there were air tankers making water drops. fire is burning near tesla road. it is in a rural area between the town of tracy and
1:43 am
livermore. flames have destroyed one structure. cal fire says the weather worked in their favor today. temperatures stayed in the 80s and paul, what are they facing tonight >> winds have died down to about 15 miles an hour. it will be on the cool side of average east of tracy tomorrow. highs will once again be below average in the low 80s but once again, the on shore flow will kick up the west to east wind tomorrow afternoon. 15, 20, 25 miles an hour. so we are talking about temperatures being a help but the wind being a hindrance when it comes to this kind of fire in alameda county. we will talk about a chance of rainfall here coming up in a few minutes. >> thanks paul. a petition demanding all san francisco police officers wear body cameras already has 35,000 signatures. it is in response to this viral cell phone video. you can see several officers on top of a man with a prosthetic leg. the sfpd says the man posed a danger to himself and the

1:45 am
is laughable. they are young people in their 20s . sure, they have parties but there is no drug-dealing. >> we hang out. that's all we do over here. we chill. >> reporter: neighbors say they reached their breaking point august 8 when there was a shoot- out on this block and that is when they took matters into their own hands. >> we decided to write a letter to all the neighbors to essentially shame the people living in the house. >> reporter: the letter says in part, you need to go somewhere else to sell your drugs. this letter is being sent to every household on the block and each person is urged to call the police when ever they witness drug activity. but monique said the shooting had nothing to do with their house. >> everybody is looking at us funny. they are turning everybody against us. as long as we have been living here, we have never had that problem. >> reporter: monique thinks this is a culture clash,

1:48 am
runner. >> i don't see how he is electable. bush is a low energy person. >> one person did doze off during his town hall. they are concerned about his lack of energy. >> he has no energy. >> out of all the republican candidates, he is the one that i feel safest with. he would be the one with the most experience. >> new poll numbers show bush is struggling even in his home state of florida where he served two terms as governor. he also trails trump in iowa, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the billionaire businessman is also drawing crowds several times bigger than bush is. >> thank you very much. >> his campaign moved friday's event in alabama to a stadium after 35,000 fans rsvped. donald trump is on the front of this week's time magazine. but it is not the cover that has everyone talking. it is this photo of him in his

1:53 am
who felt she was overpaying. turns out the office had overvalued the homes since the day they were built because the developer and the city of gilroy never notified them they were low income housing. a deeper search found 215 low income homes total in gilroy that were in the same boat. now they will all receive refunds from the county. >> it is complicated but we are well aware of what it is. >> reporter: larry stone estimates the county will have to fork over more than $2 million in refunds. likely coming from the county general funds. >> we have a $4 billion budget. so, $2 million is not insignificant. but, it will not cause any reduction in services that the county provides to the public. >> reporter: a small piece of the pie for the county, but a significant chunk of change for the families who have been overpays for years. >> it will bring down our
1:54 am
budget. bring down our taxes. we can do things more with our families. >> reporter: it is a couple of months for the refund to be counted up and given to everyone. the board of supervisors says they will be trying to speed up this process. they will be meeting here next week to discuss passing a resolution that will make it easier for the tax assessor's office to get all the refunds to all 215 families. christian hartnett, kpix5. a brutal day on wall street. the worst in 18 months. the dow jones fell 358 points today over fears of a global meltdown. look at twitter. for the first timeshares fell below their ipo prices, $26. when a bay area high school football team takes the field this fall, they will be wearing some extra gear. mike sugerman shows us the high- tech sensors designed to keep the players safe. >> reporter: the ball is in the air and so is football. these days so are concerns

2:00 am
water and inland with the sunshine, you will be running five degrees cooler than average. a potential big change, computer models locking onto a big dip in the jet stream. something we see much deeper into fall may happen in late august early september. if this happens, that would open the door for a cold front to come down which may bring us late august early september rainfall. that would be wonderful. low clouds and fog. breezy, sunny, mild afternoons. temperatures in the low 80s inland. san jose, 80. only 79 in sunnyvale. union city, 74. danville, pittsburgh, low 80s . it will be a cloudy start in san rafael. cloverdale, 83 degrees. we are just going to hold this pattern all the way through 80s inland. 70s near the bay. we will really hope with fingers crossed that we get some rain about ten days from now. >> looks great. >> that will be good. >> thanks paul. people camping out tonight for a pair of sneakers? they don't even go on sale
