station but not being able to stop. now the distraught man who was holding up those stations is no longer hanging on the wall of the bart station and trains are back in service. nbc bay area cheryl hurd has more on the rescue, do we know what his beef was? >> reporter: well, it got a little tense for a moment there, but the good news jessica is that the trains are back on track here at the walnut creek station for about the next four hours. the good news the man who caused all of this is now safe. the contra costa fire investigators did what they do best. somehow they were able to gain his confidence while putting up the ladder. he thought about jumping on the side of it. but he didn't. he was put into an ambulance and taken away. this is the end result of all of this. a huge commuter mess at the lafayette station. you can see from sky ranger. it took place for about four
hours. it caused a lot of frustration for a lot of people but some people took it all in stride. >> we got an alert saying that there was an incident on bart. so we left work a little bit early, got on a train and now we were dropped off at lafayette, and now we're going to another bus to take us to concord bart to get us to our cars. it has not been too bad. everybody is in a good mood, but as it gets later it could get a little more frustrating. >> reporter: well, check this out from sky ranger, you can see it didn't take long for the backup to diminish at the lafayette station. there could be delays at other stations but things are clearing up live. back here live there is another problem here in the parking lot. people are getting off the stations and getting in their cars. there is a bit of a backup. but this will soon are history and things are pretty much back on track. reporting live, i'm cheryl hurd,
nbc bay area news. lot of commuters there, that is for sure, let's look from sky ranger at the walnut creek bart station, as you can see the biggest backup is people trying to get out of the parking lot. we'll continue to follow the story on air and on line, and bring you more details at 11:00. our other top story, in san jose, for renters, late last night was the very close vote. tonight, the new impact of the vote that could help renters in the pricey and limited market. robert honda has more. >> reporter: robert, some crucial details with the ordinance, what do we need to know? we' >> reporter: i'll tell you, another fight could be looming, in the next two weeks or months which could leave many renters out in the cold. a celebration by the renters groups erupted by the attempt
ordinance protection. the policy is designed to protect renters from no-cause evictions, get earlier notice and rent control when a housing apartment is demolished. but it could be as long as two months if not given urgency status. as they found out for rent control, a lot can happen in two weeks or two months. >> the last time there was a lapse, there was an increase in evictions and rent increases, so that is what we feel is going to happen again. >> reporter: the city housing director who spearheaded the ordinance agreed saying tenants whose leases expire during this time are very vulnerable. >> we're doing the best we can which is to come back with the urgency ordinance. >> there really is no way to protect them during this
downtime? >> reporter: correct, because they're acting within their rights. >> reporter: actors say they will do the same the land lords. >> and if it does, we'll raise our voices loud and strong and let them know that that is not okay. >> reporter: well, today advocates tried to get the rules council to move up the ordinance vote a week next tuesday, but the committee made up of the people on the losing end of last week's vote rejected the idea. so the next vote will happen may 9th. and who knows what will happen between tenants and landlords before then. coulter campus controversy, ann coulter's visit to the university has been cancelled. uc berkeley's officials say they couldn't assure her safety or that of the campus. the campus republicans say she is coming. so which is it? >> reporter: well, there are really two sides to this story,
jessica. as you said the school made it clear they did not have enough time to get proper security for an ann coulter visit. campus republicans say that is not true. they gave the school plenty of time and ms. coulter will, they insist, speak on april 27th. for decades uc berkeley's campus was famous as the birth place of free speech. but in the wake of the violent protests that cancelled the february talk by right wing speaker milo beyond yiannopoulo >> we were able to accommodate other high profile speakers because we had advance notice. >> reporter: in fact, berkeley said they didn't even learn about the talk from campus republicans. >> we learned about the invitation to ms. coulter by
reading about it in the newspaper. >> not true, say the republican group saying not only did they give the campus enough time to prepare but that ms. coulter will speak on the 27th. >> ann coulter, despite what the administration and agitators are trying to do, ann coulter will speak on april 27th. >> cal students have mixed emotions about the controversial speaker. >> there is definitely a danger that presents itself here, like speaking here, although i do believe in free speech. >> instead you should let the people speak. you're free to protest, instead of using your fists how about you have a dialogue with those people? >> reporter: ann coulter herself was speaking about it herself on twitter, saying no school that accepts funds can ban free speech. they're not talking where she will speak, at least for now. a lot of back and forth with

>> reporter: every san jose state student received this e-mail from the university last night informing them of an attempted battery targeting a female student jogging along san jose around 7:30 p.m. last night. >> it's like also stepping out, and have my pepper stray and just like make sure you're aware of your surroundings. >> reporter: according to campus police, the suspect tried to lunge the woman and grab her, the woman ran to a university park and flagged down a fellow student, and hide in the car until the suspect disappeared and she was able to call 911. police say the attacker was a black man in his 40s, with a thin build about 6'3", with a distinctive mole on the left side of his face. >> being a girl you have to have somebody with you. >> reporter: last night's frightening incident comes two weeks after two other women were
grabbed inappropriately by a man on campus. the suspect in that case has been arrested but today many students fear the instances will continue. >> really upsetting, with the campus, but more can you honestly do? >> reporter: last year there were 21 cases of sexual battery on campus, and so far this year there have been six incidents. reporting live, michelle roberts. more teams joining the search for a missing plane and the santa rosa couple on board. brenda richard was on the controls at the four-seater, her husband mark traveling with her. the plane is equipped with an emergency transmitter, but the authorities have not detected a signal. the plane was expected to land at petaluma airport in the evening. family members alerted authorities when the couple failed to arrive. radar and cell phone analysis have narrowed the search to a rugged area of the sierra

in court. even non-citizen veterans who cross that legal line can be deported under this 1996 law. >> legally it can't be used any more for immigration, they can't oh, you have this crime we'll deny you because of this crime. so it's huge. >> reporter: two more deported veterans were also granted clemency by governor brown. but another honorably discharged veteran who was deported, enrique solas, who we also visited in tijuana, was not. barajas vows to continue fighting for his brothers in arms like salas, who will remain overseas for now. >> we'll expand. >> reporter: barajas was hoping to return to the country he was willing to die for, but later deported him, soon. he has been offered a job in the u.s. with a roofing company and hopes to share a burrito in this country with his daughter. >> it was unfortunate, but i had a little piece of paper.

militias, iran spends its treasures and time disrupting peace. >> reporter: they looked at the negotiation by president obama, a deal that president trump has repeatedly called weak. >> we buy them off for a short period of time and then someone has to deal with it later. >> reporter: this as the white house faces tough questions over war ships that were reportedly heading towards north korea. the president telling fox business news last week? >> we are sending an armada, very powerful. >> reporter: but now revealed the strike group was actually going in the opposite direction of australia. >> what part was misleading. we answered the question on what signal was sent. i'm not the one who commented on timing. >> makes it look as though the united states didn't have intent or follow through. it did not have determination. >> reporter: back at home, the president claims victory in georgia's highly watched congressional race, tweeting

bay area. and cracking down on people abusing disabled person's parking placard, today, the dmv searched for violators in downtown san jose. and it comes on the day that they looked at whether or not the people should have them. >> reporter: the crackdown focus on a four-block area in downtown san jose ended with dmv investigators seizing several handicap placards. today, the dmv combed the street looking for people who may be abusing the parking placards for disabled people. if you have one of these not only can you park in a handicap zone, but can use it for free. and today, investigators claim this man used his father's temporary blaplacard so he coul park close to class. that was seized and the student
could pay up to $2,000, mike said he didn't realize his dad had to be present when using the placard. >> i do feel guilty, at the same time i felt they should have explained it a little better. >> reporter: the dmv investigators took this from this woman's car claiming she abused it. she said she was using the placard to transactions poport , but her mother was not in the car. today's regulations are part of enforcement operation. >> we issue these placards so it's our responsibility to ensure the spaces are open for people who need them. >> reporter: but a state auditor found the dmv is not doing enough to make sure the cards are not abused. auditors looked at a sample of 96 approved laplacard
applications, but found a percentage of them did not qualify. the dmv is looking at recommendations made by the state auditor, including collaborating with medical boards, including training for staff and the effort to report the placard abuse. but it's up to the investigators to make sure once someone received the placard they don't abuse it. the dmv issued an infraction to a driver who went in to get lunch. a spokesperson said the driver is a contractor and they have spoken with his company about his unacceptable behavior. in san jose,ñr marianne favro, c bay area runews. okay, all the rules we learned in first grade, just learn about parking. and we'll have sunshine tomorrow. so that is the good news.
but a little bit of rainfall, sandwich in between, it's not a major storm system, just enough to get the roads slick in the early morning hours, so let's look at the micro climate forecast right now. you can see the storm is moving closer and closer, top thing you should know about this is the heavier rainfall is moving way off to the north as we zoom in to get a closer look at the doppler radar, the one thing i'm concerned about right now is the current view is not matching up as well with the forecast model data that we're seeing across on all fronts. so bottom line, i do think this wet weather that is developing in the pacific will move in tonight. so everyone should expect the chance of rainfall, but it looks like the north bay will definitely have the best possibility. we can show you on the forecast model data. you will see at 8:30 p.m., showers near middletown and calistoga, moving through the north bay by 11:30 p.m. and it continues to fall apart as it moves down to the
peninsula and east bay at 1:30 a.m. on thursday, and 4:00 by saturday. the commute, we're drying out from this and the sunshine will start to return. so i don't think you're going to have any problems as you head out on thursday morning. mostly sunny to partly cloudy. 53 in the south bay, 54 in the peninsula, and the tri-valley 51, clearing out under mostly sunny skies for the north bay and 50 san francisco, san francisco, 53. as we bring you back in the future cast just want to reinforce there will be no shower chance after 7:00 a.m., you can see by 1:01 a.m., we're mainly looking at mostly sunny continuing. so as we look at the forecast for thursday, we have some awesome weather down in the south bay. 71 expected in downtown, maybe even 72 in gilroy, only problem could be the winds, breezy at 14, we'll kick around the pollen again, so allergy sufferers
certainly need to think about that. oak, pine and sycamore, the top three problems, and 73 in walnut creek, slightly cooler in the bay, throughout the peninsula, 61 in half moon bay. warmer here for san mateo, and 67. san francisco, 64 along the embarcadero, and cooler 60 for engineleside. 67 in mill valley, and 67 in santa rosa, and the forecast keeping the dry weather and sunshine for friday. warming up to 68 in san francisco, and maybe a possible shower next tuesday. not a big storm system. but we're going to keep our eye on this very, very closely, dry weather to next wednesday. for interior valleys, the bigger difference by friday, we may have isolated 80s in the forecast, little bit of cooling for the weekend but still looks fantastic. so next tuesday again maybe a speed bump coming our way, i
don't see a big storm system but we'l÷r continue to follow that think you did a pretty good job on getting things to line up on this one, most of us will be sleeping. great timing just for you guys. >> all right, from in here in the studio, let's go courtside. colin rush is at the oracle before tonight's tipoff. >> reporter: hey, guys, we know that kevin durant is out tonight. we'll discuss it coming up in sports. ♪
over to colin rush. kd out? >> no kd, no problem, or so we hope. colin joins us again courtside from the oracle game two. >> reporter: yeah, no kd, no problem, let's sure hope so. steve kerr erring on the side of caution with kevin durant, why wouldn't they? still two months for the playoffs, he will be out with the calf strain he suffered in the second half of game two. he will sit, but so will shawn livingston with an injury, it's about adapting, said steve kerr. >> it's about injuries that happen and things happen. you just have to play with whatever you got. just like portland is doing now without their starting center. and so we'll go without our guys, we'll see how we can do.
>> in game one, oakland native damion illeglilliard the warrio cannot allow that to happen tonight. >> reporter: they can beat their guy at any moment, and then obviously being able to make shots from all over the floor, being able to get down hill at the rim the way that they do makes them very difficult. and their team is designed for them to score and go get it. so they have got to continue to be our focus. >> a busy day and night at the coliseum complex. a's and rangers this afternoon. texas manager jeff banister gets the heave ho, fifth inning, his seven's home run of the season,
rangers take care of the angels tonight. steve kerr keeping things close to the vest. we'll find out just before tipoff. we'll be back tonight with highlights and reaction from game two. live at oracle arena. colin rush. >> we'll see you at 11 clock, watching this game as well. and bumgarner on the mound, greatest moment, pitching to the game seven win to the 2014 world series. taking a quick lead, right now royals lead 1-0 bottom of the sixth inning. >> so many exciting things happening in the bay area. >> sharks plaufr s playoffs as well. >> and sunshine, coming basketball,back, a little bit of rain as well of
