>> according to the los angeles times shriver has already moved out of their brentwood mansion. last month was their 25th wedding anniversary. in a joint statement they said this has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. after a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. in this youtube video posted in march shriver wasn't wearing a wedding ring and alluded to uncertainty she felt about the next phase in her life. >> i like a lot of you i'm in transition, people come up to me, what are you gonna do, i hope you're getting time to relax and think and take a break. it's so stressful to not know what you're doing next when people ask you what are you doing and then they can't believe that you don't know what you're doing and then they are giving you advice, maybe i shouldn't do that, what are the
three things that enabled you to get through your transition. after you transitioned what do you wish you would have known? i wrote a book, 10 things i wish i would have known before i went out into the real world. tell me some things you wish you would have known before you transitioned, that would help me. >> she has a history of sexual misconduct allegations with women, but during his election campaign shriver defended him. the l.a. times says since schwarzenegger left office it has seemed that the couple has lived separate lives. they have four children. even with california's budget problems the state is pumping more money into a crime fighting program that has had remarkable success solving cold cases. it uses family members to catch criminals. but those family members don't even know they are helping police. >> reporter: a 23-year-old barista arrived for work here at the kind grind coffee shop in march of 2008 when she was

it was his father's dna and a crime hundreds of miles away that led detectives to him. >> i doubled the amount of resources we're puting into this technology and science. >> reporter: attorney general kamala harris says she is stepping up familial test to go try to clear a backlog of unsolved cases while opponents say it can unfairly cast suspicion on a suspect's relatives who have done nothing wrong. harris is not convinced. >> i think it's a false choice to suggest that we have to choose between civil rights and civil liberties or public safety. we can have both. and, to that end, it's important, then, to do as we have done, to put in place protocols to ensure that individuals' civil rights and civil liberties are respected. >> joaquin county but santa cruz police say they don't need any more convincing. >> it's a big win for not only us but the community. >> reporter: mark sayier, cbs news 5.

officer helped flight attendants wrestle him to the floor and put him in handcuffs. this is what the pilot told the sfo tower. >> we're going to need a priority handling on our arrival, we have a major conflict here. american 1561 -- >> 1561, your approach, maintain 6,000, say again the last thing you said. >> down to 6,000 and we night priority. >> reporter: and drew way took these cell phone pictures. during the struggle everyone started unbuckling their seatbelts but were told to sit down. >> at that point we saw handcuffs and the second applause was when the plane actually landed. >> reporter: he is being investigated for possible terrorist ties but his cousin says it's all a big misunderstanding. >> i really can't say what he was thinking at the time but i know he was not a terrorist for sure. >> reporter: now he is being charged with interfering with
the flight crew and he will be in a san francisco courtroom tomorrow. dana? >> elizabeth cook at sfo. thank you. a week after u.s. forces killed osama bin laden tonight it looks like pakistan is taking some revenge against the c.i.a. meantime a pakistani political leader acknowledges his country has a problem of trust. as elizabeth palmer reports. >> reporter: prime minister yousef ga lanny faced parliamentary to discuss how they could have missed both bin laden and the u.s. raid that killed him. >> they serve no purpose. >> reporter: there was an intelligence failure but no collusion with al queda. >> reporter: allegations of complicity and incompetence are absurd. >> reporter: simple denials aren't enough. pakistan's political opposition like the u.s. wants to see a thorough investigation of the
whole fiasco. can you describe what you think the biggest blow is to pakistan from this raid to kill bin laden. >> well the most serious fall- out, apart from feeling the worst humiliation ever, is our credibility. no one will trust what pakistan says any more. >> reporter: they didn't trust pakistan when seals raided the bin laden's hide out without spelling the isi intelligence service. now the isi is on the defensive. the three women who used to live here are in pakistani custody. the ci all. would like to question them but it took the isi a week to say "yes." and then there was this. a report in the pakistani media that outed a senior c.i.a. operative in pakistan, apparently an attempt to blow his cover. so far there has been no reaction from the american ebb and it's far from clear who leaked this information but
it's widely seen to have been an angry and humiliated isi taking revenge on the c ever c.i.a. with the best will in the world pakistan was a prickly partner in fighting terrorism. last week's raid has torpedoed that good will and left the whole partnership in jeopardy. elizabeth palmer, islamabad. mississippi river expected to crest tonight at 48 feet, that is just shy of its all- time high. the rising water is impacting 8 states but memphis is getting the worst of it right now. homes in low-lying areas of that city are swamped and hundreds of people have been forced to evacuate. outside of new orleans the army corps of engineers opened floodgates to try to relieve pressure on the levees. checking headlines around the bay area, a battle over the planned expansion of the oakland zoo. the zoo wants to expand 60 acres to showcase new exhibits about animals now extinct in

somewhere. >> you have a heavy rainfall, you know, the tires on a vehicle actually press the water into the pavement and, you know, that pressing the water down in, that's what really exacerbates things and makes the potholes happen a lot more quickly and a lot more severely. >> caltrans crews like this one have spent every day for weeks just trying to repair the damage caused by the winter rains. this stretch of 580 near livermore is full of holes. >> we're familiar with the roads, we get a number of complaints from the public. >> the caltrans crews say you can always tell where the worst potholes are by looking for hub caps. they come flying off the minute you hit these craters. filling these things can be a hair-raising experience. workers just inches away from already impatient motorist and this could be going on all over the bay area for months. >> about 10 minutes, that's about as long as you want to press your luck because any more than 10 minutes traffic is

to save the sport. >> we calculated that the new money would be about 4 million and had that in our financial model and still needed to make these cuts. >> then he said the 21 million a year is not an accurate figure. novak jokeovich is making a joke at tennis. rafael nadal beat him in straight sets. he extended his unbeaten to 32 in a row. that brings us to the state of american tennis. for the first time since the ranking system began 38 years ago there are no americans ranked in the top 10. an american doesn't appear until 11. where have you gone joe mcenroe. how can you have your pudding if you don't beat the heat? the arrow is on miami's chris bosh. lebron james misses, bosh with a tip-in. she caught one more fish than i did this past weekend.
