>> reporter: several neighbors heard sounds because apparently the intruder was going rooftop to rooftop until he decided to settle on the yellow house. he broke a window, then went inside. police say the intruder was completely naked. he fought with the homeowner biting him on the shoulder, then jumped into his wife's bed and bit her in the leg. >> i was scared. >> reporter: the cops arrived quickly and took the intruder into custody. neighbors say the burglar had to be restrained. >> creep. >> reporter: strapped to a gurney he was screaming incoherently. >> i saw them take a guy out on a stretcher and put him in the ambulance. >> reporter: what was he yelling? >> he was saying like cops trying to kill me, thing like that. mark kelly on tonight a chp offer who worked out of dublin is saying sorry, sorry for what he did to women he pulled over.
mark kelly on the nude photos and mean texts. >> reporter: shawn harrington's defense isn't much of one at all. outside court his attorney offers no excuses but not much of an explanation either. >> what was he thinking? probably the honest answer is he wasn't thinking. >> reporter: harrington has confessed to stealing explicit photos from the cell phones of women he arrested and then forwarding those pictures to other chp officers. nudes are always better with the face one texted. maybe she knows she has a jacked up horse face the other texted back. >> reporter: did he know it was a crime when he did it? >> i don't think he thought about that. that's what i said before. i don't think he was thinking when he did this. >> reporter: investigators call the stealing and sharings these nude photos a game, a game he heard was also played among chp in southern california. >> he used the word game and i
said this before. this is no game and he knows it was no game. >> reporter: especially no game at this point when it has cost harrington his rank and respect among law enforcement. >> his apologies extend to all of the members of law enforcement whose reputations are potentially tarnished by this kind of behavior. >> reporter: mark kelly, kpix5 news. >> officer harrington also sent his apologies to the women involved for the indignity of it all. tonight a lot of people are saying wait a minute. b.a.r.t. is changing plans for future service to the south bay. b.a.r.t. may cut two of four planned stations in santa clara county. len ramirez says b.a.r.t.'s eyes may have been too big for its budge. >> reporter: just as b.a.r.t. to silicon valley is closer to reality there may be a big change-up in the number of stations in san jose and santa clara. b.a.r.t. silicon valley partner vta says greater competition for federal transportation dollars and lower than expected tax
revenues may force them to cut two b.a.r.t. stations from the plan, proposed stations in allen rock and santa clara are on the chopping block. after years of planning and community input neighbors in the areas feel betrayed. bpa says nothing is definite, but it does need to trim $1 million from the project. tonight we've learned the test pilot killed in friday's virgin galactic spacecraft explosion grew up in the bay area originally from scott's valley. michael alberry was married with two children. we have new information about the spacecraft's final moments. >> reporter: as investigators are continuing to collect evidence from the wreckage scattered over 5 miles of desert, they now know what happened in the seconds before the spacecraft broke apart. twin tail sections of spaceship 2 called feathers were unlocked by the copilot earlier than
usual. what is supposed to happen is shown in this virgin galactic test flight video. the mother ship releases the space plane which then begins to climb. if as it goes up, the feathers -- as it goes up, the feathers remain behind the craft. on the descent pilots have the feathers go up to deploy the spacecraft. >> about two seconds after they started to move is when the tape stops. >> reporter: the copilot was killed. the 43-year-old pilot remains in the hospital after parachuting to safety. ntsb investigators have not yet interviewed him. the crash is a setback for billionaire entrepreneur richard branson. he has signed up some 800 potential space tourists who paid up to $250,000 to ride a virgin galactic flight into
space. >> we need to know exactly what happened to make absolutely certain it can never happen again. ely take a year to complete. >> branson hoped to begin commercial flights into space next year, but the feds say the final report on the accident will likely take a year to complete. don't even r the elections tomorrow, polls open at 7 a.m. but tonight a lot of californians don't even realize jerry brown is running for governor again. a poll found only 40% of voters know that brown is on the ballot and only 20% could name his republican opponent. in oakland the 15 candidates for running for mayor are making a final push. phil mattier says part of that push -- is trying to explain the unexplainable. >> one of that is where we have
invested. >> i am tired of people asking me whether i feel safe in my city. >> we need to go after violent crimes. >> reporter: it was the final crime in tuesday's oakland mayoral race. they wasted no time in bringing it on. >> libby said would you liar a doctor who didn't know how to operate? -- hire a doctor who didn't know how to operate? my question is would you continue to hire a doctor to do surgery when they failed in the past? >> i really am the only person up here who has worked in every neighborhood in the city. >> reporter: even as the candidates work the room, the ballots in the election were already coming in at the registrar's office where they were sorted and test run for what will likely be a very long complicated count. >> for a final tally it's probably going to take into the following week. >> reporter: reason for the delay is rank choice voting which allows every voter to make three picks, tabulating all the extra votes taking extra time, in fact, people in as much time as it takes explaining how it works.
are you clear on range choice voting? >> i don't think as clear as i want it to be. >> i think it's going to become more of a tie. one candidate is spending a lot of money for a seat on the santa clara water district, not usually the kind of race that involves a lot of money. documents show candidate gary cremons spent nearly $400,000 on his campaign mostly out ofly own pocket, five times more -- of his own pocket, five times more than ever has been spent on a water election. he's the founder of match.com and owner of sex.com. water. a water supply tha >> this is a board that has 1,000 employees and a $400 million budget and there's no person with any business experience and there's no person with any technology experience. >> portable reuse of recycled wastewater, that is a water supply that could be half or more of our water supply for

street. look toward the top of your screen. the suspect follows the woman across the street we have some dramatic video tonight of a woman kidnapped off a philadelphia street. look toward the top of your screen. the suspect follows this woman across the street and grabs her and drags her kicking and screaming down the sidewalk to his car. a witness heard all the ruckus just before 10:00 last night and found her cell phone and glasses that fell into the street. police say that she kicked out one of the car's rear windows as it drove away. this is the woman they are trying to find, 22-year-old
karlesha freeland gaither. police believe she does not know her captor. the kidnapper almost got caught. police say another car drove up to the suspect vehicle but quickly made a u-turn and drove away. tonight only on 5 we have discovered four companies in the bay area are doing tests on dogs, tests for things like medicine and household chemicals. the breed of choice? beagles because they're so friendly. betty yu found a group that's saving these beagles and we want to warn you, some of the video is disturbing. >> reporter: life hasn't always been so carefree for these beagles. >> these dogs have spent their lives in a cage. we were told directly by the people in the lab this they have never been outside, that they had never seen sunlight, that they had never had a toy. >> reporter: the beagle freedom project changed that. the organization is dedicated to saving beagles like these used in research labs, often for chemical and pharmaceutical testing. since 2010 the l.a. based nonprofit has rescued
more than 300 beagles across the country. 3-year-old riley is one of them. he first met his bay area family in july. >> he was looking at the trees and the sky and we got in the car and i don't know what he was expecting, but it started moving and all i rot wanted to do was run around our car. >> reporter: -- all he wanted to do was run around our car. >> reporter: at first on a walk down the street riley laid down to rest. he quickly learned the ropes around his piedmont home from his border collie brother freddie. >> i think he taught him how to play. riley didn't actually know how to really run around and play with another dog, so it was great. >> reporter: even though these dogs are used to their new lives, there are still reminders of their old 1. they all have tattoos from the lab and spanky here can't bark. he had his vocal cords cut, a common procedure in many labs. what goes on in many labs is
rarely made public. this video from an undercover peta investigation shows a worker force feeding a beagle oxycontin. another investigation revealed beagles going crazy after being confined for years. >> i think it's really important to note that there is no experiment on dogs that's illegal. experiments have to be approved by committee within a laboratory, but nothing is against the law. so they're put through all kind of cruelty. >> reporter: peta says most dogs end up euthanized. it's rare for beagles bred for a life in the lab to end up here. >> laboratories don't want to release the animals to us. they simply don't want the information out there. >> reporter: back in the bay area at riley's new home casey is learning a whole new way of living, too. >> i'm just going to hit the scan button. >> reporter: she use an app to figure out how to avoid products that are animal tested. >> this product is cruelty free. >> reporter: three weeks after our first visit it's clear this former lab dog is living the

resumed. as for the cause of the illness, the lab results are not back yet. with little girls. some adus we there were some popular halloween costumes this year, elsa from frozen, big with little girls, of course, and some adults went as the ebola virus. >> one guy in santa cruz went as a tv reporter and cate cauguiran tells us that wasn't very popular. >> reporter: there's nothing more interesting than the radio traffic downtown because you hear officers looking for superman, batman, i just took spider-man into custody. >> reporter: based off this mugshot you wouldn't know what sean kory was dressed as, but we do know he's particular about his news sources. >> they yelled a lot of expletives at him and told them they hated fox news. >> reporter: another person tried to attack him over the weekend because he was dressed as a fox news reporter. the suspect sean kory took the victim's halloween costume
prop, a fox news microphone, and shoved it down his pants and tried to hit him with this before running away. the victim was not hurt but was able to lead police to sean. >> they were able to give us a good description of mr. kory who wasn't hard to find. >> reporter: because sean was dressed as a female tennis player and when police cuffed him -- >> he reiterated the fact he doesn't like fox news and that was the impetus for the whole attack. good thing he wasn't a kpix5 reporter here. we protect our local bay area reporters. >> reporter: in santa cruz, cate cauguiran, kpix5. >> we appreciate that. on social media tonight some say sean is the new contender, yes, for the hot inmate. a stockton felon jeremy meeks, remember that guy? took that title when his mugshot went viral earlier this year. a loser. huh? >> what do these two good looking guys have in common? >> they're both felons. >> yeah. they're in jail, interesting. another chilly evening out
