tension with north korea. the u.s. aircraft carrier "carl vinson" closing in on the korean peninsula as the ship has been on the move, its aircraft have been in joint exercises with japan's air force. north korea has threatened to sink the "vinson" if provoked. this, by the way, the first look at the joint military drills that the u.s. and south korean forces held, but this is the first time we're seeing these images. they were conducted as north korea was preparing to mark the anniversary of its military. these drills have taken place since the late 1970s and overnight south korea announced that key parts of a u.s. military defense system are now in place. the full senate goes to the white house this afternoon to get a closed door briefing about the north korean situation. the president's crackdown on immigration has suffered another setback. a federal judge in california blocked the administration's attempt to withhold funding from sanctuary cities. calling an egregious overreach and vowing to win in the supreme

populations. they're living in shadows. some of them are not going to school or scene a doctor because they just don't know what's going to happen to them. >> reporter: the mayor said the city had promised all residents city officials would fight for their rights and they did. in san francisco, melanie woodrow, abc news. president trump is expected to return to his home town next week for the first time since the inauguration. that hometown, you might know it, white house says the president is visiting new york city to deliver a speech aboard "uss intrepid" and meet with the australian prime minister while there. it's raining in new york and along most of the east coast right now. you can see the system moving up the hudson valley and all of new england. another inch or two of rain is responsible but just showers for the rest of the northeast. the rain is fading away in north carolina, but still the threat of flooding.
rivers are rising and there are fears that a dam in wake forest could breach overnight. many area roads are closed after that flooding. six to nine inches of rain came down, which is more than what would normally fall in a month. well, when you go to court, you're told to turn off your electronic devices. it seems a supreme court justice may have violated that rule. justice breyer's phone went off. he appeared red faced as he tried to stop the noise. we've all been there. justice breyer normally leaves his phone else where. i'm curious what his ring tone is. can you imagine if it is some beyonce music. >> like, all right. remember the chocolate river in willy wonka? this street in russia was a poor imitation. the roof of a pepsi factory
collapsed injuring two people and sending tons of fruit juice into the surrounding roads. a sea of orange liquid was flowing through the streets. some of the fruit juice managed to make it to a nearby river, as well. >> imagine that cleanup. >> it will smell good, though. >> that's true, it will. when in rome, the police may give you a helping hand. >> yeah. the police department in rome, new york, that is. up there in central new york took a homeless resident and gave him a makeover. >> the officers themselves gave him a shave and gave him a hair cut. also got an entire wardrobe of new clothes all donated. the police say bobby, as they called the man, left looking like a whole new person. what do you think? a little before and after shot. >> who needs to go on a bravo show to get a home makeover. >> i heard bobby asked if you could give him a hair cut. >> bobby, you look great.

>> still learning a bit about incident. thought you have seen all images and heard everything there is to hear about it. linsey davis gives us the update. >> reporter: new video shows dr. david dao and his wife now boarding the infamous united flight. less than two minutes later his wife runs off then back on again. the reason is unclear. then, this call to police. >> the airline overbooked the flight. and they need two passengers to get off. they're refusing. >> dao was dragged off after refusing an offer of $800 voucher to turn over seats to a united crew later seen boarding the flight. the newly released police report appears to blame dao for his injuries saying aggressive, physically abusive dao lost his balance and smashed into the armrest when he knocked the officer's arm away. the lawyer calls that nonsense. saying his client lost two teeth, had his nose broken and
suffered concussion. after being dragged from the plane, a bloody dao runs back in, but is eventually taken to an awaiting ambulance. how is dr. dao? >> he is hurt. >> no plans for legal action? >> i am doing what i am supposed to be doing, that's getting ready. >> united promised to release results of an internal review and actions it plans to take by end of the weekend. linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> the video is tough to watch. the case is going to be so complicated. you hear the stories back and fort. >> the lawyer that is the lawyer used in the case with the mom on the american airlines flight with the stroller. >> quite a list. >> growing one. >> so, embarrassing incidents like that help give united the lowest customer satisfaction score among so-called legacy airlines, that's carriers that have been in business a long time. but united score still rose by a few points because customers are more likely to judge airlines by their own experiences. the worst rated airline overall was spirit. for the third year in a row. >> ah, spirit. reigning champion of the worst.
