hello, everyone, i'm bethune-cookman, we've been scouring the web for the best stories and videos and it's time to show them to you, "right this minute." a pack of girls attack the new kid. see the astounding video that had a lot of people asking -- why isn't this bus driver doing anything? a rich ball player pitches a fit when he's thrown in a cop car.
>> that's awesome, dude! see the story behind the arrest. tired of plain pizza on super bowl sunday. tired of trying to please your picky eater friends? listen up, we've got snacks to make them shut upeat. and meet the dude who did -- >> one back flip every single day in 2011. >> why he did it, and -- >> why the naked back-flip? >> there's actually two. nick will get things started for us today with a story he found. >> when you send your kids off to school, you expctcthey're intoese, that yore to get to school okay, unharmed. to ocala, florida, where a security camera on a middle school bus captured a very disturbing sight. 13-year-old girl, her first day on the bus, she's being forced to stand on the bus by some of the other kids, because it's her first day.
she decides to sit on her sister's lap. the kids begin teasing her for that. at some point, a shoe was thrown at her. it looks like a boy gets under her face and she's just trying to ignore the whole situation. and the bus is very crowded. and they, other girls just start swinging at her. she kind of brushes it off and then things get really ugly. >> oh, my gosh. this is infuriating. >> why isn't the bus driver doing anything? he doesn't seem to be paying attention to what's going on in the background. >> the girls in the front are yelling at him, telling him to stop the bus. he gets on the radio. i think finally gets to the school. the five girls ranging in age from 12 to 15 years old. they beat her 10 to 15 times, gave her a concussion, knocked her unconscious. this happened on january 6th, they're being prosecuted in jewel knife court. the school is recommending that every single one of these kids be expelled from the district.
>> i don't understand the behavior of these kids and what would cause them to not allow this girl to sit down. like who came up with that rule? >> this is alarming and this says something about what we're doing wrong as society. if we're allowing young people to behave in this way. dash cam video was released this week for an incident that happened back in september involving a pretty famous athlete. we see this truck in the middle of our screen. >> right from the far left lane. >> the driver of the car is 44-year-old curtis leskanic. the former pitcher of the boston red sox. when officers asked for his driver's license. instead he pulled out his major league baseball scout i.d. card. it turns out his blood alcohol level was .33. >> whoa! >> oh, my gosh. i can't believe he could even start the car. >> that's nearly four times the legal limit. in the state of florida. police did arrest him for d.u.i.
he was also charged with child neglect. because not only was his 5-year-old daughter in the car, she was in the front seat, unrestrained. the reason the dash cam video was released this week, he had his preliminary court hearing on monday. so video of leskanic continues once they have him cuffed and in the back seat of the officer's car. he was pretty compliant as you can see, as they were putting the cuffs on him outside the car. but once he's inside the car, he gets pretty angry. >> [ bleep ] you! y-o-u! you're [ bleep ] awesome! 9/11 awesome! >> listen to him, he's sobbing in the back seat of the cop car. >> oh, my god! i pay taxes on everything and you're going to arrest me? that's awesome, dude! >> i pay taxes, so the police
will take people like him off the roads. i can guarantee you ladies are not going to be happy at how this little boy is talking to his mother. >> uh-oh. >> her, somebody caught this conversation in a london transit bus. you see this little boy, is having a bit of an argument with his mom. >> i want to sit by myself. you won't never let me sit by myself. i don't like sitting next to you! it's shameful! >> he's not done. >> he's not done, he goes on to say a lot worse things. listen -- >> i'm going to call the police. >> when you go home you're not going it lie to me. >> i'm going to report you to the police. >> i'm going to venture a guess that martha and nancy would not put up with this. >> no. >> oh, the pinch and twist. >> oh, that hurts. >> oh, they got me good. >> oh, you got me! >> stop it, you're not going to ruin this!
>> does he start getting physical with his mom? he starts attacking his mom? >> it looks like they're wrestling in the seat. he's shouting at somebody else. >> calm down. >> i'm going to punch your face out! >> wow. >> she also dares him to do it. >> it looks like she is still in control, though. in spite of the fact that he's being completely disrespectful. >> growing up, we all get in arguments with our parents and say things that you know, we now regret. ten, 20 years from now, i think he's going to be embarrassed to the things that he's saying to his own mother. >> she brought him into this world. >> and she can take him out, too. >> he needs to respect her. >> i'll punch your face out. guys, we need to raise $289 to buy nick an onrithopter. >> a 1993, shawn kincaid knighthawk. >> wow! >> i've seen toy airplanes and i
think it's amazing when people fly those. but this, this is pretty cool. >> that's really cool. >> and from a distance, it looks like a real bird. >> these shots were further away, you wouldn't think it was like a robot bird. >> i was expecting a gopro on it to see what happens, if they didn't. >> yes. >> whoa! >> what do you think? >> it's awesome. i love it. >> which is what nick will say if we raise the money to get one! >> it landed solid, i'll tell you that. >> look at that thing, isn't that neat? >> you want this for my birthday, gayle, you're exactly right. so start saving your money, guys, because this is a good gift. my birthday is coming up in few months. >> what happened to the link? some sky-diving vergens take
