12:04 pm
do? in this instance, he did absolutely nothing when our officer was assaulted. >> i'm not sure by not having anyone from the school and the police not knowing who the students are, i don't know if that would have been helpful. >> the principal says he and two other staff members accompanied the students to deescalate the situation. they kept them from entering businesses and causing other problems. in an effort to cut down on hate speech, twitter has suspended the accounts of the alt right. they noted its policies forbid harassment and hate speech. critics wonder if this could back fire. instead of silencing, they risk amplifying the message of the group. today in new york, president-elect donald trump is scheduled to meet with japanese prime minister abe. at the airport in tokyo before flying to the united states, the japanese prime minister
12:05 pm

term in january. all members of an outgoing administration must submit a letter of resignation at some point. they think he is sending a message to the trump administration to speed up the transition. happening right now, power just restored for thousands of customers in contra costa county after an outage left 26,000 customers in the dark. >> it was a tough morning for them. alex savidge is live as they finished up the repairs. a lot of people impacted here, alex. >> reporter: yeah. from local businesses to nearby schools. we will touch on that in a moment. pg&e got power restored to everyone in this area after the outage this morning. this was caused by equipment failure along this transmission line that you're looking at right now. you can see pg&e crews are out here busy working to repair that broken line. now, this huge outage started 7:30 this morning. this equipment that failed runs right along the iron horse trail in san ramon.
12:08 pm
and it is just outside of pg&e's san ramon technology center. police after this happened had to come in and shut down crow canyon road in both directions while crews came in and did their work. initially 26,000 homes and businesses were left in the dark. and that included 16 schools in this area. >> we put flashlights in every restroom, in some of the room that's don't have windows. so we were just trying to make sure that everyone had something to illuminate at least where they were going and what they were looking at. >> reporter: so that was someone we spoke with in the front office at green brook elementary school in danville. they say the power was off all morning long for the kids but came back on just about 11:00. and staff members there passed out flashlights and put them in the classrooms and the bathrooms. and some of the kids had to move outside so they could have more light to do their work in.
12:09 pm
now, power also out at nearby charlotte wood middle school in dan villas well. we're told though that the lights came back on there about 10:30 this morning. for people in the area, this long outage of course it was annoying but they made do. >> i've been reading. reading a lot. i swim at the san ramon pool. if the power is out there, that won't work. kind of an interesting day. >> reporter: now, pg&e crews are now trying to figure out what caused this outage. and, again, they are still working to repair that transmission line, a piece of equipment on that line failed. again, at about 7:30 this morning. that's what caused about 26,000 people in this area to lose power. but the good word from pg&e just came in the last couple of minutes and the power has been fully restored to everyone in the area. we will send it back to you for now. >> thank you, alex. to the south bay where we
12:10 pm
have new information from san jose where police have arrested a man who shot at two officers on sunday night. two police officers were walking on patrol in east san jose and were approached by a group of men and the men then ran away. investigators say one of the men stopped and fired shots at the police officers. the man missed and no one was hurt. we're waiting for more details on the man arrested but he is a known gang member and was on parole. a big announcement from the oakland a's. mark ibanez will talk about the shake-up at the top and what it means for the event to keep the team from moving. also, rain is on the way. meteorologist mark tamayo is tracking the wet weather and will tell us when to dig the umbrella out of the trunk of the car. if you're heading up to the sierra, we have a warning from caltrans. what you need to know before you hire someone to put chains on your vehicle.
12:11 pm
12:12 pm
12:13 pm
>> all right. happening right now a major shake-up for the oakland a's as the team announces that lou wolf is selling off his interest in the ball team. >> let's bring in ktvu's sports director mark ibanez to explain what this means. a lot of people are hoping this means that the a's will stay in oakland. >> well, hey, guys. thanks for having me on. i think it's a good sign if you're an oakland a's fan. obviously under lou wolf's direction, the a's weren't able to make a lot of progress with
12:14 pm
regard to getting the stadium built. i think that this is basically a pretty good sign lou wolf is 80 years old and time for him to step aside. and there was some disagreement within the a's power structure. lou wolf kind of wanted the stadium built on the current site of the coliseum, hoping that the raiders would either move to vegas or something like that. and he felt like the infrastructure was there to expedite the process of getting a stadium built. what we're hearing is that maybe mr. fisher liked the spot that a lot of people have been talking about lately, down close to the waterfront. so i think it's a positive thing with regard to getting the stadium built and keeping the a's in oakland. although it's obviously always fluid with these stadium situations. >> so, mark, you think it was more fisher coming in and politely telling lou wolf, hey, it's time to go or do you think that lou wolf said, you know, i
12:15 pm
think it's time to go myself he brought this upon himself? >> well, he's been hinting. >> right. >> for the last year or so that he would like to step down. and he will keep a small portion of the team and maintain his relationship with the team. but, you know, they have a good relationship. so it's nothing real fractional or anything like that. but i think that the time had come. you know, the a's fan base is extremely upset with lou wolf. and he has kind of been the hood ornament for what is going on and dragging their feet. but i think the impetus for this has to do really more with every year some of the teams that are struggling get a payout by major league baseball. because of the fact that the a's have lagged so bad in fixing the stadium situation, major league baseball is on the verge of pulling their yearly payment which is sizable. >> you're talking about that
12:16 pm
revenue sharing money. >> yes. the revenue sharing money. and i think that, you know, the a's ownership saw that coming down the trail pretty quickly. and their organization, just as a whole, has become i don't want to say a laughing stock, but i mean it's really getting bad. the team is suffering on the field. they have arguably the worst stadium in all of baseball. and it's a situation where mr. fisher stepped in, i think, and said, hey, we have to start -- we have to start making progress in a lot of different areas. and i think that's what you're seeing. so it's a perfect storm, i believe, for a's fans and starting to get things rolling in a positive way. >> okay. and so what else should we see under john fisher then? >> i'm sorry, gasia, i couldn't hear you. >> what else should we see under john fisher and dave caval? >> i'm thinking that you're going to see some immediate improvement. i think you're going to see a site picked out maybe in the
12:17 pm
next couple of months. maybe right into the new year. and i think you're going to start seeing a more progressive attitude towards putting a competitive team on the field and in essence, getting with the program. it's time. >> let's go. >> fans have been through this for a long time. and i think the media around here has been really truthfully pretty easy on what is going on with the a's organization. time to, if you will pardon the expression, step up to the plate and get your acts together. it's about time. >> i'm with you. mark, always a pleasure, man. thanks for calling in. we appreciate it. >> all right. i'll be in later to continue the story as we push it ahead. >> push it ahead. we will see you soon. >> that is ktvu's sports director mark ibanez. we want to bring in the president of the organization save oakland sports. positive? not positive? what is your reaction. >> it was great to hear mark ibanez talk about that. i've been a fan of his for a
12:18 pm
long time. born and raised in oakland, i've probably been to 2,000a's games. i got to sit with mr. wolf and watch the perfect game on mother's day. as i sit on the authority as well as the oakland sports committee, we signed a 10-year lease with mr. wolf and the a's to stay here in oakland. i agree with what mark ibanez said. he is being the focal point of fans frustration not getting things done. i personally like mr. wolf. the a's value has increased dramatically since he came on. >> does this guarantee a stadium. >> nothing guarantees a stadium. but we were hearing that mr. fisher wanted to put the site down here at the water front. right now with the coliseum the last stadium in the country with a football and baseball team. we're fighting to keep the raiders. >> the howard terminal that
12:19 pm
they toured. >> that's what most people are saying. you heard that mr. wolf wasn't as positive about that. he was kind of a proponent of moving the team to fremont and san jose. they built a stadium with the new guy coming in. it is a fantastic looking stadium. hopefully we can do this. mr. crowelly is a big proponent of education. he's going to stay with the team. you will have a lot of nucleus. no one is really leaving. the infrastructure is there to move the team forward. a lot of fans think this will move the team forward and get a downtown stadium. >> for those that don't go to a's games now and maybe not in the future, how does this impact them and why should it. >> with baseball, you have 81 home games. the raiders game last week over 2,000 jobs generated. the warriors bring in about 800 jobs. even if you don't like sports,
12:20 pm
we need jobs in our community. if you look at the civic value, what -- what the warriors have brought in with the playoff runs and the amount of money they brought to the economy locally is phenomenal. the a's have had some successful teams over the years. we haven't had a world series since i was in high school in '89. at the same time we traded danny and a lot of fans feel that the wolf leadership hasn't -- we haven't won a title with the wolf leadership. >> if the raiders leave and pack their bags and go to las vegas, is it better for the oakland a's? do you think they will rebuild that stadium there or would you rather see it at the howard terminal. >> it would be easier to build on the coliseum site. if you look at the coliseum site, you have bart, you have the airport connector, you have amtrak. >> it's all there. >> everything is right there. it's a lot easier. many people have said that mr.
12:21 pm
wolf was against the downtown site because there is no bart site. so either way -- >> it's not a home run in the water, right. >> you would see how successful the joints have been by taking the site and turning and developing it. it was nothing before they built there. they won three championships. i'm a big a's fans. i don't like the giants. but they made it work. >> save oakland sports. thanks for joining us. >> thank you very much. we're also talking with the oakland mayor to find out what she has so say about the latest developments. let's go to meteorologist mark tamayo on this thursday afternoon. >> thursday, another sunny day across the bay area. this is beautiful. endless visibility out there. of course we're all talking about the chill in the area. the mornings have been starting out cold. you can see the live camera looking towards the golden gate bridge. the clearing skies overnight. a lot of 30s across portions of the bay area. santa rosa, napa, vallejo, this

12:23 pm
showers likely into sunday. probably the most focused rainfall, that could be as we head into saturday. in fact here is a look at some of the expectations with this system. rainfall potentially could be three quarters of an inch all the way up to three inches for the north bay coastal hills. possibly a wind advisory saturday morning. winds around 40 to 45 miles per hour. sierra will pick up snowfall and snow levels coming down to 6500, possibly 6,000 feet. not an extremely cold system yet. here we are today. mostly clear skies. we will take this into your friday. still mostly clear. you will see some rainfall approaching areas to the north. maybe friday, 11:00, some rainfall could be moving into ukiah and then here we go first thing saturday morning. this is the time that we could have a wind advisory kick in for parts of the bay area. here is saturday afternoon. maybe some more breaks in the action. so there's a chance that you might have a bit of a break later in the afternoon on saturday. can't guarantee completely dry forecast. probably more breaks as we head into sunday. still we will hold on to
12:24 pm
occasional showers for the second half of the weekend. temperatures for this afternoon, lots of 60s out there for afternoon highs. santa rosa 62. hayward 63. san jose in the lower 60s. afternoon highs, not a big story. the overnight lows will continue to be. in the low 30s for the coldest locations of the bay area. mostly sunny skies for your friday. into your weekend, there we go with the rain on saturday and especially saturday morning. occasionally showers on sunday and a slight chance on monday morning. so it's just that time of year. if you can stay inside this weekend, bundle up and stay warm, that's a good call, especially heading into saturday. >> i'll take it. thank you, mark. >> thank you. a new effort to create a breathalyzer device to better gauge both marijuana and alcohol consumption. still ahead, we will hear from the creators and what law enforcement thinks about the device.

12:36 pm
officers impaired is impaired. they can see that based on or training and experience. >> reporter: according to sergeant david dowdy, being able to make an arrest and being able to get a conviction are two different things. >> because they don't have a tool like with alcohol, it's very difficult for them to say, okay, all of these things that you saw, that's -- that's wonderful and you may have been right, officer, but we need to convince a jury. >> reporter: that would be hound labs buzzing in with an answer. it's a breath test that can detect both alcohol and pot when the person taking it exhales. and that's important because there are already plenty of ways to tell if someone uses marijuana. but to tell if they smoked pottery sently, if they're stoned, breath is much better than urine or blood. >> thc resides in those media for a long time. sometimes days and sometimes even a month. so you cannot use those methods
12:37 pm
very well to determine if someone has recently ingested marijuana or smoked marijuana. you can't tell how long it's been. >> reporter: dr. francis has been working on the problem for a year and a half. mike lynn, the ceo of hound labs, and the guy demonstrating the breathalyzer for us, has been working on this for much longer. >> we have tremendous interest from not only law enforcement and employers who are struggling with this problem, but also the cannabis industry who knows that you can't drive stoned. everybody accepts that. >> reporter: lynn argues that the breathlizer will be the best defense for pot user who's are not stoned at the time that they're pulled over. >> meanwhile stanford university says although california voters approved the recreational use of marijuana, it will not be allowed on campus. the university released a statement saying that because stanford receives federal funding, it must comply with federal law. marijuana is still illegal
