meeting into recess while davonte clark took center stage dancing while those inside the chamber shouted his brother's name. davonte clark did voluntarily leave the chambers with the group that he arrived with. the council then returned. the tense public comments began from there. >> tired of you guys sitting up here talking about we need some training. you don't need no training. what you do to make them accountable for what they do. >> reporter: as public testimony unfolded inside the chambers, outside protesters rushed through security gates crowding the city hall lobby until the mayor eventually ended this public meeting early citing safety concerns. and the mayor was unsure if this public meeting would be continued at a later date or not. the sacramento police made one arrest for an assault on an officer and drunk in public. in sacramento, steve large, kpix5. >> the kings released this statement tonight saying, "the safety of our guests is our no.
1 priority. due to law enforcement being unable to allow ticketed fans to safely enter the arena, the doors were closed to maintain guest and public safety." police made an arrest in a pair of random shootings on the peninsula. 30-year-old oscar carmona of east palo alto is suspected of opening fire on two individuals, hitting one of them. police say a woman was shot while walking near newell road and woodland avenue before 6:00 last night and just a 1/2 mile away a man says a suspect fired at him near schofield and woodland avenues. he was not hit. police caught up with carmona near mitchell park in palo alto. he's facing numerous charges tonight including attempted murder. tonight we've learned i.c.e. agents questioned inmates at a santa clara county jail the same week they visited other inmates in san francisco. that's against jail rules and the state's sanctuary law. we sent kpix5's katie nielsen to ask what is going on? >> reporter: i.c.e.
agents made four visits to santa clara county jails this month. twice they were turned away, but twice they were allowed in. >> it was a classic case of just someone making an honest mistake. >> reporter: that's how the santa clara county sheriff's department is characterizing what happened the afternoon of march 7th and the morning of march 8th when two deputies allowed i.c.e. agents inside the main jail to interview four inmates. >> inmates contacted some of their lawyers and then the lawyers reached out to our executive and our command staff. once that was done we immediately took action. >> reporter: in a statement from santa clara county sheriff, " we reevaluated procedures. we value the trust and rapport we've earned with our local immigrant community and we will not break that trust." the sheriff said immediately after agents were mistakenly allowed into the jail march 7th and 8th deputies were
retrained on policies and procedures and they created a new law enforcement sign-in sheet. i.c.e. agents tried to enter the jail on march 14 and again just yesterday. the jail spokesman says both times the agents were turned away by the retrained deputies and were not allowed inside. >> they better get it straight, you know. we have a sheriff and chief of corrections. it's their job to in this case carry out the policy of the board of supervisors. >> reporter: this supervisor says the county worked hard to build trust of the immigrant community and hopes this was just an isolated incident. >> don't make any mistakes going forward because the ripple effect it sends through the community is fear and it's not good for the health of our community. >> reporter: the jail spokesman told us the i.c.e. agents did not place detention orders on any of the four inmates they talked to. we reached out to i.c.e. for comment but did not get a response. in san jose, katie nielsen, kpix5. tonight orange county is taking the president's side on california's sanctuary status
by joining his federal lawsuit against the state of california. >> california is very much america, our country, our state. >> opponents of the law celebrated outside after the all republican board of supervisors voted today to challenge the law which aims to protect undocumented immigrants by limiting police contact with i.c.e. agents. >> even so much as talking to federal law enforcement, pick up the phone and answering a question and we don't feel that that's practical. we think it jeopardizes public safety. >> orange county has begun publishing information about inmate releases online for the feds to see. president trump is flip- flopping tonight over funding for his border wall. he's long promised that mexico will pay for it, but now kpix5 political reporter melissa caen tells us the president may be passing the buck to taxpayers. >> who is going to pay for the wall? >> mexico!
>> they may not know it yet, but the answer is mexico. >> reporter: it was mr. trump's key campaign promise, but now sources tell cbs news in a private meeting last week with house speaker paul ryan the president suggested the pentagon pay for the estimated $25 billion wall. >> reporter: isn't it true at this point mexico is just not going to pay for that wall? >> i'm not going beyond what the president's said. i think he still has plans to look at potential ways for that to happen. >> reporter: the president tweeted, " building a great border wall is all about national defense, build wall through m," the m for military. >> this is not constitutionally appropriate. >> reporter: jonathan turley is a constitutional law professor at george washington university. >> there's a serious problem when you ask congress for money and then circumvent congress when the money is not forthcoming. >> reporter: the spending bill passed by congress last week does contain $1.6 billion for
border security, but that money can only be spent building and repairing fences, not walls, melissa caen, kpix5. some students at this bay area high school are accused of sexually harassing the teachers. tonight they're about to learn a big lesson. >> investigators say this fraud suspect had a dirty secret, tonight the alleged sewage scheme in a bay area backyard. >> this self-driving car slapped with a ticket, the bust on a bay area street only on 5 tonight.

insisted the district needs to do more to stop it. >> i have been sexually harassed, stalked, threatened, by students. >> you can't feel safe in a learning environment and teaching environment if that's happening to you from the people you're teaching. >> reporter: officials say students will learn about sexual harassment, the kind that happens in person and also electronically on social media. tonight two baton rouge police officers are cleared in the shooting death of alton sterling july, 2016. those police officers pinned the father of five to the ground outside the sss food mart and then they shot him. police say sterling was resisting arrest and reached for a loaded gun in his pants pocket. today the louisiana attorney general said the officers blaine salamoni and howie lake will not face charges. >> the louisiana department of

>> it was clearly shocking the amount of unlawful discharges that he had, the way that he did it, the way he was able to bypass the system for so long. >> reporter: 63-year-old carlos chavez has been running petaluma septic services out of his home in penngrove since 1973. he's now facing two felony charges and 22 misdemeanor charges for illegally dumping sewage in rohnert park's public heights. police say chavez would pump 3,000 gallons of sewage into his truck from multiple homes. then through a manhole he dug out himself in his backyard he would dump the sewage into rohnert park's system avoiding being charged a fee. police caught him doing this 326 times in 2017. >> if they were full loads, it would have potentially been $127,000. >> reporter: we pulled chavez's criminal history.
he's done this before. police arrested him in 1998 and 2000. detectives say he was able to keep running the septic company by lying on his application using his brother's name to get a permit. >> that waste has potential catastrophic effects on the integrity of the saner that sewer system as well as damaging pumps within the sewer system and culturally affect thousands of people -- ultimately affect thousands of people on that line. >> reporter: neighbors wonder if he put their health at risk. in 2016 neighbors sued the city after they found e. coli and fecal matter in their drinking water. neighbors say the sewage system suffered consistent backups for several years. now police believe they finally understand why. we stopped by chavez's two homes in the area, but he never came to the door. if convicted, he could face more than 16 years in prison. susie steimle, kpix5. tonight uber is putting the brakes on testing autonomous vehicles on public roads in california. the company says it will not renew its permanent.
the dmv notified uber in a letter today that it will lose testing privileges after saturday when its current permit expires. th if uber wants to return, it will need a new permit and it will have to address the fatal crash in arizona. a self-driving uber killed a pedestrian last week while it was in autonomous mode. both uber and the state of arizona ordered the testing be suspended following the fatal crash. back here in the bay area a self-driving car was pulled over and given a ticket after a pretty close call on a san francisco crosswalk. it's going here's kpix5's jackie ward. >> not sure why it happened, but it's going to happen a lot i think. >> reporter: this is the picture kevin o'connor snapped as he drove through soma last week. an sfpd motorcycle officer pulled over a self-driving car. >> there was another car stopped alongside. he looked befuddled. the cop was in back writing a ticket. >> reporter: the car belongs to the san francisco-based
company cruise. the company claims the pedestrian was 10.8 feet away from the car when while the car was in self-driving mode it began to continue down harrison at 14th street. shortly after the car accelerated police pulled it over. in a statement crew says, "safety is our priority and testing our self-drive -- in testing our self-driving vehicles. california law requires the vehicles to yield the right-of- way to pedestrians allowing them to proceed undisturbed and unhurried without fear of interference of safe passage through an intersection. our data indicates that's what happened here." the pedestrian did not get hurt. it happened a day after an uber car in self-driving mode hit and killed a woman crossing the street outside a crosswalk in tempe, arizona. it's incidents like these that make people like kevin skeptical about whether self- driving cars will ever be safe enough. >> to me of it's almost impossible. i just don't see it happening -- to me it's almost impossible. i just don't see it happening unless every car is autonomous.
