i'm april kennedy and i'm an arborist with pg&e in the sierras. since the onset of the drought, more than 129 million trees have died in california. pg&e prunes and removes over a million trees every year to ensure that hazardous trees can't impact power lines. and since the onset of the drought we've doubled our efforts. i grew up in the forests out in this area and honestly it's heartbreaking to see all these trees dying. what guides me is ensuring that the public is going to be safer and that these forests can be sustained and enjoyed by the community in the future.
a terrifying trip for dozens o tour bus. t good evening, i'm elizabeth cook. >> i'm ken bastida. a terrifying trip for dozens of passengers aboard a bay area tour bus. chp says their driver was extremely drunk. nearly four times over the legal limit. kpix 5 andrea nakano is live. >> reporter: what is suppose to be a great drive ended up being a a wild and scary ride through san francisco and the north bay. it all began around 9:30 on sunday morning. a bus carrying 40 passengers nearly crashed several times. in fact a passenger told california highway patrol officers the driver hit the right side rail of the golden gate bridge and kept driving. the passengers then called 911 to report the incident, but the passenger says the driver continued to drive erratically going at unsafe speeds and
passing on the right shoulder. chp tried to stop the bus in petaluma, but couldn't get there on time. 911 calls from other drivers on the road started to pour into the dispatch center. the wild ride didn't end until the bus arrived at the casino. chp officers interviewed those on board and the driver. officers say 34-year-old angela teasley from richmond was put through dui tests, almost four times over the legal blood alcohol limit. after several close calls, luckily the drive ended without anybody getting hurt. teasley was booked into sonoma county jail facing dui charges including driving a commercial vehicle while impaired. andrea nakano, kpix 5. >> according to the casino, the bus belongs to transportation. they have yet to get back to us for a comment. last week's storms may have turned deadly tonight. two people missing after being
swept away from floods in mariposa county. the storm washed out the section of highway 132 on thursday. sheriffs say the 67-year-old usually drives there to get home from work. they found his toyota avalon more than a mile downstream. in some spots, crews are dealing with chest high water, usually a foot deep, it is now ten feet instead. dozens of people have been searching on the ground along with drones and helicopters. >> considering the sixer for both individuals. we presumed both have deceased. >> sheriffs say 72-year-old carol brown sals missing. she tried to check on some horses during the floods. tonight, ice is responding to reports that it uses facebook data to track undocumented immigrants. this as the feds are launching a new investigation into facebook. kpix 5 betty yu is in menlo park. >> reporter: this report comes
as facebook is under intense scrutiny over how they handle data. the company started off the week with growing legal troubles and backlash. first the federal trade commission announced it is investigating facebook's data privacy practices. saying in part the ftc is firmly and fully committed to using all of its tools to protect the privacy of consumers. this announcement sent facebook stock down more than 5% to levels not seen since july last year. by the days end, shares rebounded, but they are still down more than 15% from last month's high. also today, 37 state attorney generals issued a demand for ceo mark zuckerberg to explain facebook's data protection practices. the news follows the report that facebook saves extensive call and texts made by certain android users. the company clarified in a a blog post that it only collects the kind of data on users who
opt into the feature on messenger or facebook live. an intense criticism has been mounding since news that the data collection firm cambridge analytica, which worked with the 2016 trump presidential campaign, gained access to the personal data of more than 50 million facebook users. zuckerberg has taken out full- page ads in american and british newspapers to apologize for a breach of trust in the cambridge analytica scandal. russell hancock is ceo of joint silicon valley. >> they need to be right in the eyes of their customers. remember in business the customers are always right. now the customers are voicing real concerns. >> reporter: today a new report says i.c.e. uses facebook data to find and trap suspects. in one case while looking for a man in new mexico last year, i.c.e. was able to get back-end data, reviewing a (mark) log of when the -- and review a log of when
each person signed in. i.c.e. made a valid legal request for information involving an active child predator, and it does not provide ice with any special data to insist with the enforcement of immigration law. a spokesperson tells them the report that claims to use facebook and trap undocumented immigrants, it is baseless. it says during the course of an investigation, it can seek subpoenas, warrants, and court orders to legally compel companies to provide information that may help with their investigation. in menlo park, betty yu, kpix 5. tonight, arizona is putting the brakes on uber's self- driving car tests. this comes eight days after one of uber's autonomous cars hit and killed a pedestrian in tempe. that pedestrian was not in a crosswalk. in this dash cam video, the car doesn't appear to make any
collisions. they notified uber of the suspensions. uber pulled its self-driving cars off the road after the crash. it says it will cooperate in the investigation. community members are demanding some answers after police shot and killed an unarmed man. a reporter has the lingering questions tonight in the death of clark. >> and they will not let stephon's death be non- existent. >> during the press conference on monday, the chapter president, highlighted a question that has left many in the community unsettled. >> and why was the audio turned off after the shooting? what is the protocol for turning off the audio? >> benny williams is referring to this moment. roughly seven minutes after sacramento police fatally shot unarmed stephon clark in his grandmother's backyard. in both body camera videos
released, an officer could be heard saying hey, mute. then the video will go silent and officers talk amongst themselves. >> that creates an additional layer of mistrust as if we need to hide something. >> we're looking at what was said prior to being hit. >> reporter: police say it is under investigation and why the mute button seen here was used, but they add there are a wide variety of reasons as to why they have the ability to deactivate altogether. >> for example, the tactical consideration, information being shared, or briefings between the officers. and we will take a look at this incident and determine if it was appropriate, a response to be utilizing the mute button. >> reporter: he's one of severalleaders fueling questions from the sacramento radio station. >> there are other reasons to turn it off as well. it's not well defined where it needs to be honed in. >> we also heard one of the
officers say hey, are you good? right before the audio went silent. again what was said after that is being investigated. police also got the body cameras less than a year ago, still getting used to the technology. but still a lot of questions will remain. in sacramento, kpix 5. >> tonight the state attorney general is suing the trump administration again. this follows an announcement from the commerce department. it says it is reinstating the question on citizenship status on the 2020 census. xavier becerra says that could jeopardize the accuracy of the census. tonight, stormy daniels is suing president trump's lawyer for defamation. now this comes a day after the adult film star appeared on 60 minutes to address her alleged affair with the president. here's kpix 5's allen martin. >> reporter: the the white house is not buying what stormy daniels said on 60 minutes. >> the president doesn't
believe any of the claims ms daniels made last night in the interview are accurate. >> reporter: she claims to have had a one-night affair with president trump back in 2006, even though she has denied it in the past. >> did you want to have sex with him? no, but i didn't say no. i'm not a victim. >> it was entirely consensual? >> oh yes. >> reporter: daniels claims years later she received a threat to keep the affair a secret. >> a guy walked up on me and said leave trump alone, forget the story. then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said that's a beautiful little girl. it'll be a shame if something happened to her mom. >> reporter: michael cohen paid daniels $130,000 of his own money. now that daniels has told her own story, cohen's attorney said she lied during the interview. cohen says neither the trump organization nor campaign was involved in paying daniels.
his attorney added, president himself did not reimburse cohen, but called the president a third party beneficiary. michael who represents daniels tweeted a photo of a disc with the caption, "if a picture is worth a thousand words, what is this worth? what's on that disc? he was asked about it this morning. >> the cd, dvd was meant to send a warning shot. that mr. cohen and the president better be very careful what they come out and state regarding my had client. isn't it interesting, gail, when we have a president that will tweet about the most mundane matters, but he had not tweet about my client, the affair, the agreement, or the $130,000 payment. you know why he won't tweet about it? it's because it's true. >> reporter: president trump did tweet this morning saying so much fake news. never been more iniac a rat. >> no comment yet from the white house on all of this. but according to legal analysts, the non-disclosure agreement could be seen as an election violation on cohen's
part. his payout to daniels could represent a campaign contribution. allen martin, kpix 5. a dozen bay area horses nearly starved to death. tonight the owner's explanation, and why investigators aren't buying it. these bay area weapons will never be used for violence. tonight, you'll see how they are being transformed into tools of peace. and found alive. tonight, sheriffs describe how a woman survived ten days, stuck in the snow.
with another driver doing donuts. so far chp says there are no suspects. tonight, an apparent case of animal abuse in snohomish county. a horse found dead, a dozen others severely malnourished. kpix 5 joe vazquez tells us their owner is now under arrest. >> this is gabby, one of the ten mares and two stallions that were pulled out of the cloverdale situation. >> reporter: gabby is malnourished. her owner neglected to feed the 14-year-old mare. next all over, eating heartedly is ethel in even worse shape. >> you can see they are skinny. >> and i can count her ribs. >> yes, absolutely. i mean, it feels like a ladder in there. >> reporter: the sheriff's department has arrested their owner, 65-year-old joseph rafael of cloverdale. he now faces 13 felony and animal abuse charges because one of his 13 horses died and the other 12 were described as
underfed and emaciated. the horse that died had bones showing through its skin. according to the sheriff department's spokesperson, a neighbor had been sneaking onto the property feeding the horses because she had seen the emaciated conditions they were in. but recently she found one horse had died, so she alerted the authorities. rafael was not on the property tonight when we tried to talk to him. he had been giving the horses food, but deputies found hay in the feeding area, and for some unknown reason it had not been given to the horses. >> it breaks your heart. you don't want any animal to go through what we have gone through. it makes you angry. but for me, i channel that into doing something. >> reporter: heather bailey is with the non-profit change, housing two of the horses, all the volunteers have been nursed back to health, providing nursing care.
in cloverdale, i'm joe vazquez, kpix 5. and the group change, caring for some of the horses relies on donations. heather ray lee is hoping her neighbors will pitch in to help feed them and get them healthy again. new revelations in the pulse nightclub shooting. according to some court documents, the gunman's father was actually an fbi informant. noor salman is on trial accused of helping her husband, omar mateen plan the 2016 attack. mateen shot and killed 49 people inside the pulse nightclub in orlando. now records reveal his father, sadiq, had be a very different point between 2005 and june of 2016. the defense says that suggests mateen may have plotted the attack with his father, not with salman. some bay area weapons will never be used for violence. instead they are being
transformed into tools of peace. kpix 5 christin ayers explains. >> reporter: they are traded for cash, a small useless arsenal. but for oakland residents, the weapons are an opportunity for change. >> to transform the artifacts, which makes life happen. >> reporter: the non-profit is called led to life. >> once we met, we decided to form this idea to transform guns and shovels to plant trees in the u.s. >> people, they see your block being changed to digging life. >> kyle spoke to me by facebook, traveling to atlanta to melt the guns into 50 shovels to plant 50 trees to represent five decades since martin luther king jr.'s
murder. >> it's the material, reimagining it, then using that to bring life has been so powerful. >> reporter: so powerful that representative barbara lee is already applauding them. inspired by the innovative project led by kyle lumley to celebrate dr. king's legacy she tweeted. he says the plan has been in the works for more than a year before the parkland shootings and the swell of activism that followed. but the work is now more timely than ever, believing this is just the beginning. >> turning a gun into a shovel is not going to change it. it is not all the work. we are doing more of a story on justice. >> we want to reimagine violence. we want to forge peace. >> christin ayers, kpix 5. well a story of survivor out of the sierra tonight. cheryl donovan recently spent
ten days in her suv trapped in the snow. she ran out of gas after making a wrong turn. donovan managed to survive on just one bottle of water supplemented by eating snow, of course. on the 10th day, the 54-year- old grandmother trudged a mile through the snow coming across the road. a good samaritan stopped, calling for help. by the way donovan's suv is still out there stuck in the snow. luckily we're getting a little bit of a break from the extreme weather we're facing. >> too much too quickly, now we are getting a break. the pattern has flipped, going back to no rain for the last several days. a a couple of hours ago, san francisco was the cold spot at 58. now at 11:00, it's the warm spot at 54. 56 in santa rosa and 54 in san
