minutes when passengers were taken off the plane and put on buses. presumably to board another plane to san antonio. no reports of any injuries and it's still unclear if there was an actual threat or not. if there are any new developments, we'll keep you posted right here. now to a story you'll see only on nbc bay area. the city of san jose spent the last few days denouncing other cities for luring away its police recruits, but as it turns out, san jose has been doing the same thing for years. poaching from other departments. nbc bay area's damian trujillo joins us with this. >> reporter: there's been a policy in place and encourages the recruitment of veterans and rookies from other departments. it's called the lateral transfer or lateral hire if you will. that's not illegal, but critics say san jose should not throw stones from its own glass house. the police academy is where they trained to become a part of san jose's finest. but it's also where other cities have come to recruit the same
6:01 pm
cadets, after the city of san jose has paid for the expensive training programs. the hiring of san jose recruits had angered many at city hall because it costs $170,000 to train each officer. councilman sam lacardo even issued this memo proposing recruits pay back the cost of training or perhaps sending the bill to the city that hires them. >> the problem twofold. one is that our taxpayers are on the hook for $170,000 in training costs. >> reporter: but nbc bay area obtained this memo of sjpd's recruiting incentive program. it encourages any employee of the police department to recruit an officer from another city. either a veteran or a rookie. the san jose officer would get time for each officer he or she recruits. >> san jose does not exist in some sort of isolated environment. >> reporter: political analyst, larry gerston, says what's good for san jose has to be good for other cities.
6:02 pm
he says luring employees and managers from one city to another is nothing new. still, san jose shouldn't get upset when other cities are poaching its cops. >> as long as everyone is competing for these people, everyone has to be a big boy and girl about it and realize what goes one way can go the other. >> reporter: while san jose police would not talk about this policy on camera, they did say the intent was never to lure new recruits away from other cities. licardo thinks the police policy is a good one. >> we should continue to encourage our officers to be out there talking to other officers, who may be interested in a career here in san jose. we know that's happening in every city in the bay area. >> reporter: to which critics say don't get mad when other cities do it to you. we have reported that roughly 17 new recruits have graduated from the police academy last month in san jose. either have one foot out the door or have already left. the brass here at police headquarters tell me they have
6:03 pm
left because of pension reform. the lower benefits that they're getting and the lower disability benefits that they're getting. more to come. damian trujillo, nbc bay area news. >> low morale there. more details on our top story. there have been only three academies in san jose in the last four years. from the december 2009 group, there were no defections. san jose pd laid off 67 graduates because of budget issues. some were later rehired. the rest said, no thanks. the march 2013 academy had no defections and the most recent class which graduated last month had five defections, but according to our sources, 12 others are going through background checks which indicates they could be in the process of getting hired by another city. just into our newsroom, an east bay man has been indicted by federal grand jury on charges of sex trafficking of children. prosecutors are releasing just a few details tonight. they say 23-year-old jamal
6:04 pm
broussard was arrested at his home in hercules yesterday. court papers say he forced two girls under the age of 18 into prostitution, working in several states over a period of 2 1/2 years. if convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison for each time one of the women was transported out of state. a south bay father is in jail tonight after leaving his children in a car alone for nearly 15 hours. the two children were found in the car on north hillview avenue near interstate 680. chase cane is live in milpitas with more on this story. >> reporter: the only reason neighbors and, therefore, police found out these two kids were left alone in this car is because a neighbor here on this street walked out of her house yesterday afternoon and saw a kid with their foot on the steering wheel blowing the horn to get someone's attention. that suv was parked on the
6:05 pm
street behind me sort of where you see the white suv. hours later the police arrested the children's father. 29-year-old julio reyes. he faces two felony charges of child endangerment. now, police say that reyes told them he had parked the kids there and gone to a friend's house. he did not elaborate on exactly what that means. police say he dropped the kids off there before midnight tuesday night and the neighbor did not find them until a little after 1:00 yesterday afternoon. that's at least 13 hours the children spent in the car. when police showed up they said the kids were okay but certainly very hungry. an officer went to get them food right away. because these children are 8 and 10 years old, a little bit older, we asked milpitas police why it took so long for someone to find them. >> disheveled, hungry. first thing we did was get them food. have nutrition in them. before we started doing interviews with them, we wanted to make sure they were fed and take ever care of.
6:06 pm
>> reporter: milpitas police tell us the children did not have a cell phone, they only had a jacket in the car and it was pretty chilly there tuesday night. they say the kids just kind of stayed inside the suv and waited for their father to come back because they say that their father told them that he was going to come back. but their father, julio reyes, did not contact police until a little after midnight this morning. so that was more than 24 hours after police say they left them here in this suv and that is why he faces those two felony charges. milpitas police also say the children's mother was apparently at work and had no idea this was going on. live in milpitas, chase cane. a man and his neighbor recovering this evening after being attacked by a dog in antioch. actually two dogs. last night the man was walking his dogs on a trail near larksberg drive. suddenly two stray dogs attacked. three neighbors heard the noise and ran out to help. the dogs turned on them. biting them in the face, arms and legs. >> the brown dog was attached to

6:08 pm
two of the transit agencies, possibly all the large ones in the state, took the most recent negotiated draft and actually started implementing those provisions ahead of today's decision. >> the cpuc adds the new rules are not a reaction to the recent b.a.r.t. deaths. they had already been proposed and were set to be implemented today. the state attorney general and the fbi might launch an elder abuse investigation against a castro valley facility that was shut down last week. one of its patients is still missing. authorities say 65-year-old edmond baskum wandered away last friday one day after the valley springs manor was shut down for a long list of alleged violations. another 14 residents have been safely removed from that facility. investigators say they were abandoned by most of the staff. only a janitor and cook remain on site to help. a sonoma county supervisor

responsible for the heat, high pressure that's building offshore. the storm track off to the north, that's going to start to cool things off as we head throughout our sunday forecast. we go from 76 on saturday down to 69 degrees by sunday. for those interior valleys. you'll also not want to forget the time change. set the clocks back one hour early in the morning on sunday or on saturday so you're not late anywhere or early, that is, as you head throughout the back half of your weekend. see the temperatures stay on the cool side throughout monday and tuesday of next week as well. no rain in that seven-dray forecast. we're hopeful in the weather center. right now i'm going to try and time things between my weather hits tonight and see if i can check out the doomsday castle. >> oh, you're brave. >> also some snickers bars in the waiting room as well. >> crazy on that. >> thanks, jeff. >> yeah. let's get to sports and bring in ahmed fareed from comcast sportsnet. >> the 49ers have activated linebacker aldon smith from the nonfootball illness list. the move comes one day after
6:48 pm
smith met with head coach jim harbaugh. foll following the completion of his treatment program. smith arrested on dui charges on september 20th and missed the last five games after voluntarily undergoing treatment for substance abuse. he will practice with the team when they return from their bye week. but will he suit up for their next game? with all the answers let's check in with dave feldman and our 49ers insider. >> okay. ahmed, thank you very much. last weekend, matt, you spoke with the commissioner both in london. are you surprised at this move? >> i'm really not. trent said one of the things that the 49ers had to see in order for aldon smith to get back on the field was progress and certainly spending all those weeks in rehab, i think, the 49ers feel like he's in a much better place than he was before entering rehab. as far as roger goodell the league will take into account the fact that smith voluntarily sought treatment. i asked roger goodell about that. it doesn't mean he won't face any kind of suspension. i do expect him to face a fine,
6:49 pm
however. >> probably not miss some games if you were to guess. okay. they're on a bye week. they play, the 49ers, a week from sunday at the stick against the carolina panthers. will we see number 99 out there? >> i think when you look at if in these terms that aldon smith had the dui arrest on a friday, practiced a couple hours later. he played in that game sunday. to think that he wouldn't play after going through the treatment process and the next game, november 10th, against the carolina panthers, i think that's, you have to look at it in those terms. i fully expect smith to be back on the field and helping the 49ers become a much better defense in the second half of the sfe the season. >> thank you. ahmed, back to you. >> very interesting stuff there. raiders defense was the key to their victory over the pittsburgh steelers on sunday. they sacked ben roethlisberger five times. now they have a different challenge as they gear up to face the eagles' running back lesean mccoy on sunday. >> that running back is
6:50 pm
exceptional in space. and to try to give them no space is to challenge why you do this. that's what excites us is no matter what type of scheme it is, to be able to stop the run, keep the top on the coverage, and be able to swarm and make plays, and like we said, we're turning bad into good and now if you slow down this running game, you're turning good into great. >> you have to be able to attack the line of scrimmage and you got to get, as i always say, in the runs game, you got to get 11 hats around the ball and that will be critical again. because this guy is a good back and can make a guy miss in space. we have to try to limit the space. how about the warriors? they rocked their season opener last night against the lakers. the 31-point victory. the biggest opening game blowout in franchise history. the clippers tonight in l.a. we'll have highlights of that tonight at 11:00. all right. now the world series is over.
