sending a clear message to henderson police. after what she says was a startling encounter with three officers last week - the mom decided to paint a message on her garage door warning them that a non-verbal autistic man lives there. fox5's abby theodros spoke with that mother today...and joins us in studio with her message. judy mckim says this all started when a friend called police saying there was a domestic disturbance inside her home. she says it was her 28 year old autistic son having an "episode." police came.. as this report shows... but what happened next is completely different, depending on which side you ask. judy mckim: i had to let the neighbors know, what goes on in this little house on the corner. judy mckim's message is loud
my garage in an attempt to make sure my son was never treated by the police as the same way he was treated. nats her 28 year old son zach is severely autistic and dosent communicate well with others. 23-28 we're the little house where nobody comes out nobody goes in and there's weird noises from. mckim says that changed last week. judy mckim: a woman who had never seen an autistic rage called in domestic violence on my son - the police officers came, very gung-ho. her family didnt know what to think. judy mckim: there were three police officers on my sons bed w knees on his chest. with a pacifer in his mouth..the was laying on his back. and a diaper. he was screaming from the side of his pacifer and he was literally thinking he was fighting for his life. judy mckim: that scared me. fox5 got a hold of
having "fits of rage" that lasted 20 minutes...but that responding officers "never witnessed zach hurt or hit anyone." but the report never mentioned police physically interacting with zach. nats judy mckim: "its alright buddy" screaming mckim says writing on her garage was a last resort. even though zach is 28 - he has the brain function of a toddler. dealing with police officers...is something he's not familiar with judy mckim: he does not know what a police officer is, what the threat of a police officer is, wh mean, or what a hand on the butt of a gun means. we also asked hendreson police if they had any body camera footage of the situation - but a spokesperson told me they dont wear body cameras. i also asked mckim if she's gotten any weird stares or extra traffic by her house since she's painted her garage..she told me yes. she wants more people to be informed so that they dont have any issues in the future.
woman is safe tonight after a scary situation involving her phone.... one that's causing problems for people across the world.. and now may be recalled. the woman was laying in bed with her brand new galaxy note 7 charging beside her ...when all of a sudden... she says... it burst into flames. fox5's kathleen jacob met with her and explains what happened. alicia edwards says the whole situation has been a complete nightmare. this is the galaxy note 7 she has... but wait until you see how charred hers is. and why excitement for a new phone... turned into a situation that could have cost her everything.
get the brand new galaxy note 7 on the first day it came out. "it was good! i enjoyed it." but for only a short time. just a week later alicia laid in bed while her phone charged on a charging pad beside her. "it made a loud pop and there was a high pitched squeal and just firework flames like shooting out of the side of the phone." shocked and in a panic.. my first reaction was to grab it and run it to water so i don't really know if i was thinking at that moment. but after i was just completely shooken up, shaking, it was very scary. alicia has burns on her fingers and holes in the shirt she was wearing... proof that this wasn't just a little overheating. to me this is a big issue. it could have burned my house down and i could have lost everything, including my animals. she's not the only one... all around the world people are reporting this exploding phone... prompting a shut down of shipments from south korea... and a possible recall right here at home. as for alicia...she put in a claim.. and was sent a new phone... but it was the exact same
to happen agains. i'm charging, trying to charge my phone during the day so it's not charging at night so i don't lose and more sleep. cause i'm terrified this one's going to explode as well! however.. as horrible as this situation has been... alicia feels relief. i'm just glad it wasn't more damage. it wasn't damage to my home, animals. my skin will heal. i did speak with a representative from samsung today. he's looking into alicia's case but there is no word on what is going to happen with the phone.. back to you guys. samsung also shared this statement with us... "we regret the experience mrs. edwards has had with samsung. we have reached out to apologize and have provided her with a new device." they go on to say that they are conducting an inspection of the galaxy note 7 and will share updates as soon as possible. we'll be right
i'm catherine cortez masto and i approve this message. as a doctor, i see how decisions in washington impact my patients here in nevada. so even though i'm a republican, i won't be voting for joe heck.
joe heck's voted ten times to defund planned parenthood, which thousands of women depend on for cancer screenings. and heck opposes a woman's right to choose even when her health is at risk. for me and my patients,
that would shift the balance
of power in the clark county school district. members of the nevada board of education - are scheduled to vote tonight on adopting what's being called an "empowerment" model. it would diminish the control of the central district office - and give principals more autonomy over their budgets. nevada lawmakers started the process last year when they passed a bill that originally envisioned breaking up the nation's fifth largest school district into a handful of smaller precincts with their own volumteer board. proponents say it will cut
obstacles - while critics wonder whether it will give equal resources to schools in rich and poor areas. now fox5 weather 24/7, with chief meterologist ted pretty more heat on friday with showers expected east of us. we'll see 101 for a high with mostly sunny skies and southwest gusts in the afternoon to 25 mph. gusts to 30 mph for saturday and sunday and highs at 98 and 93 degrees expected. for labor day monday, we'll see 93 degrees and plenty of sun with southwest gusts to 25 mph. more heat on friday with showers expected east of us. we'll see 101 for a high with mostly sunny skies and southwest gusts in the afternoon to 25 mph. gusts to 30 mph for saturday and

i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life.
so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours.
es the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you.
