wise. i'll see you later in the broadcast with the seven day. chris? >> okay, kathy, thank you very much. every day millions of us buy lottery tickets. we hope to beat the odds. but more often than not we lose. some lottery retailers though the people who sell you those tickets and theires they seem to win all the time. tonight the i-team charlotte huffman looks into those who may be a little too lucky. >> reporter: liz is bun one of the luckiest people in new jersey. since 2010 she's won $600 or more 96 times. she even won a thousand dollars four times in just one month. totaling more than $132,000. >> what's your secret? >> luck. >> reporter: paul is the most frequent winner in new jersey. >> she also sells tickets here at her store in turnersville and guess what? she's not the only big winner with ties to retail stores. in records obtained by i-team we discovered three of the six most
frequent winners in the state are store openers. how do you do do it good you need to talk to my hub. >> reporter: so we did. meet daniel paul. >> luck. if you play. >> reporter: that's one heck of a lucky streak. >> it looks a little pitt fishy to me. >> reporter: skip, a statics specializing in lottery investigations. he says you'd have to spend big bucks to win as often as paul. >> i say over eight hun dead dollars day on lottery tickets which is just practically hard to do. >> reporter: he says there's a more likely reason why some retailers are defying the odds. >> sometimes they will buy regular gamblers winning tickets at a discount and then turn them in themselves and claim the prize. it's called ticket discounting and it helps winners hide from the government. how? jackpots of $600 or more are taxable and have to be
cashed in at lottery office. where the state can also deduct back taxes child support and other debts. >> or when you go claim your prize, you have to fill out a form and present photo id. and maybe you have warrant out for your arrest or you're illegal alien. >> have you ever bought tickets off of somebody? >> no. >> reporter: no? >> we never did. >> reporter: paul has not been cited by lottery officials for doing anything wrong. this retailer who asked we not show his face says winners are always looking to beat the system. >> has anybody ever asked to you cash in a ticket for him? >> yes. like some people but never. >> i think that looks bad. if i were the new jersey lottery i'd be worried about the optic of that. >> reporter: but lottery officials would not talk to us about our findings. instead sent a statement saying discount asking lose their license but that rarely happens. take patel in vineland for example. charlotte huffman "eyewitness news".
>> lottery officials caught patel trying to cash in $20,000 winning ticket he bought from someone for $10,000. the ticket was voided but he never lost his license. neither did the two other retailers cited for discounting last year. >> why did you buy it off the person? >> no comment. >> reporter: is this something that you do a lot? >> since 2010 patel has won $600 or more 13 times. totaling almost $26,000. >> but he didn't want to talk about any of those wins. >> reporter: can you just answer few our questions? >> no. you got to leave ma'am. >> reporter: why do we have to leave? >> ma'am, if you don't leave i'm going to call plasson. >> reporter: now, we also asked lottery officials for the number of retailers they have citeed for ticket discounting so far this year, and we're still waiting for that answer. >> understand some of these people being evasive but the lottery is kind of surprising. >> it's very surprising. >> it's all very interesting. that's for sure.
>> eye opening. >> yes. >> charlotte, thank you. >> no problem. >> former member of the st. joe's softball team says she was subjected to sexually charged hazing. she's filed a federal lawsuit against the university. woman says she was submitted to demeaning behavior during week long period in 2013. st. joe's previously suspended the team in regard to hazing allegations and declined comment on this lawsuit. >> search is underway tonight for a man who attacked a university of delaware graduate student. the woman was jogging when she was grabbed from behind at written house park in newark new castle county. the suspect lunched at the 25-year-old victim yesterday morning and grabbed her waist but she was able to break free. she wasn't injured and she called police after she ran home home. police believe in this case the suspect may be a homeless man. a shocking catch is made down the shore. >> five men real in an 820-pound shark and it's very close to the record set more than two decades

with decades of experience. >> all i did was actually get a 12 gauge shotgun with a slug and i -- when i seen the shark and my said dad dad dad i step in. >> also on board fred durst the injury. >> he wants to do a lot more but i really liked having him on the gun. i can trust him on the gun. >> five men gave it everything they had to pull the shark on to the boat. >> i had no clue that it was an 820-pound make company shark. not even kloss. >> reporter: the captain rob admits had the catch been in in a few weeks during a popular shark tournament second $1,250,000. he says money doesn't compare to the 820-pound experience last weekend. >> this to me personally is more because we have -- we've caught a specimen that's over very close to the state record. >> david spunt cbs3 "eyewitness news". that's what's amazing about this.
as big a shark as that is the largest ever caught off the jersey shore 856 pounds. that one was caught back in 1994. still very impressive what they pulled off here. >> very impressive. mary lee the social media savvy shark tracked near the jersey coast is headed south now. we know she's now swimming off of wallops island, virginia. you can track her on twitter. and if you're like many in our heading down to the shore this weekend a busy bridge will not be open. we've got the details you need next kathy. >> we have dramatic swings in temperatures as we head toward the holiday weekend. some rain to contend with as well. we'll talk about that and have the forecast from the city to the poconos to the shore coming up. also ahead tonight caught on video, a man is hit with a taser at a busy airport. we'll tell you why police took that action. >> and men have have i gag where is the little pink pill for women? we take look at the hold um when "eyewitness news"
