6:01 pm
true level of his brain function. >> dr. manly says traumatic brain injury is where cancer was 40 or 50 years ago. these injuries are very complicated making it a challenge to care for these patients. >> we really haven't study the this effectively and it is one of the silent epidemics. >> they are trying to get him to san francisco without further injury to his brain. >> the team that transported him from la county did a superb job. he showed up here. he looked great. transporting a critically ill patient like stow can be risky. his blood pressure can drop or there may be enough problems getting enough oxygen to his organs. >> now stow is opening his eyes spontaneously and responding to painful stimuli. these are very primitive functions. what this means for his long- term prognosis is unclear. at this point the steps to recovery are incremental and doctors are taking it it day-by- day. >> it is good to get an update now that he is back home.
6:02 pm
>> thank you. >> well, late this afternoon, members of bryan stow's family were here in the studios. joe vasquez had a chance to speak with him. what a gracious family. >> they really are his father and his two sisters. david stow, the father says it has been a real struggle dealing with brian's injuries. he was so active and now he is in that hospital room incapacitied as. as the doctor says his son is stabilized now. he is blinking his eyes a little bit. and even a little bit more. >> well, sometimes he'll begin to move his lips somewhat. but it's just like he is not trying to make words out of it or anything like that. he's just moving his lips. and that's hard to see, but it's something. the doctors say it's encouraging that he has got that much movement. >> there is still a lot of care for him. we love him and we talk to him. but it can be heartbreaking to look, to see him there.
6:03 pm
we just have our strength as a family unit. we are pretty strong together. and that's what holds us together. and known bry, the type of person that he is strong and loves life. and we believe he will come from back from this. >> dana, there is just so little information in this field, as we've been pointing out, mr. stow says his family has just not come to the terms with the possibility that brian will need some long-term care. they just don't believe it at this point. they are hoping their positive thoughts and all of the prayers of fellow fans will help them pull through for a complete recovery. >> you mentioned how gracious they were to speak to us. but it must be difficult to continue to have to talk about someone, especially when you don't know where it's headed. >> right. and it's been a physical struggle as well, you know. the fact that in a strange way it is harder to get to the hospital from here. they are from santa cruz and drive all the way up. down in la a hotel chain was putting them up ten minutes away from the hospital.
6:04 pm
so, you know, they are not the type to ask for any help. but you can tell that there is still going to be a lot of help needed from the community at large. >> well, and the research into brain science and brain recovery we see bryan stow beaten and gabrielle giffords shot. just different things. >> the brain is such a delicate organ and with a traumatic injury it is hard to know what's going to happen. it's like an on i don't know, there are different layers that you peel off and find out what's down below. hopefully we will learn more and he will improve steadily. but right now it's too soon. nobody knows. the world's experts there at san francisco general, they say they don't know. >> well, dr. kim mulvahill, thank you. >> well, as we mentioned, the giants are back in la tonight playing at dodgers stadium. lapd are at the game tonight handing out sketches of the two men who attacked brian stow. in the meantime, they say they
6:05 pm
have received a new tip. this is about the woman that they think was driving the getaway vehicle. they say that she may have been wearing a dodgers jersey with the player's name ethier as you see it there. andre's name on the back. the dodgers said today they are doubling the reward money in this case. it is now up to $200,000. terrifying moments for a belmont mother as a carjacker nearly drives off with her 5- year-old daughter. she and her daughter were parked behind the restaurant when a man got into the car and demanded the keys. the police say that he pushed the woman out of the car, but she managed to grab her daughter from the backseat before he took off. this morning a chp officer spotted the stolen vehicle in burlinggame. the man inside stephen thomas was arrested immediately. an early morning stand-off with a burglary suspect ends peacefully. it happened at a home on parker street at 7:00 a.m.
6:06 pm
police say a 65-year-old man armed with a machete and a saw tried to steal a bike from a home in the area. when the officers aroofed the man barricaded himself in another home. after several hours of negotiations, swat teams used a battering ram to enter that home. the suspect was arrested and taken for a psychiatric evaluation. now to the schwarzenegger sex scandal. scores of reporters, photographers have swarmed a house in bakersfield. it's the house where the former governor's mistress lives with schwarzenegger's child. now, the woman was not at home when the flash mob arrived with satellite trucks filling that street and filling out into another one. we have a picture of mildred patricia known as patty. arnold and many yeah's former housekeeper. they were pregnant at the same time and gave birth just one week apart. with all of the other act says of woman eyeing plaguing arnold schwarzenegger over the years, how did he manage to keep this
6:07 pm
one from getting out? phil matier on how the former governor was able to keep this $1 million secret. >> reporter: well, there was always rumors but there was never anything that was actually in writing that was proof that he had an extramarital child. >> and he should know, he was one of an army of behind the scenes democratic party operatives who spent years going through arnold schwarzenegger's private life. >> how much did you spend on digging dirt on arnold during his campaign. >> we are talking about an army of opposition leaders going after arnold schwarzenegger. they came up with a lot. they came up with a dozen woman that said they had been groped. but that wasn't enough. >> in part because his wife maria schriver today behind him. or like bill clinton the woman didn't go public. or like john edwards who fathered a child out of wedlock she didn't work in the campaign. and there was never a arrest
6:08 pm
record or a police report on which to hang the tail. >> you need a birth certificate. you need income tax records. you need property records. if the birth certificate has some other father's name on it how can you prove that arnold schwarzenegger is the father? >> he is a public relations consultant who makes a link handling scandals like this from clients ranging from chevron to the ghetties. his take? >> clearly arnold schwarzenegger had a relationship with this person, so private that his own family didn't know about it. because the way it got reported not as his child but as somebody else's it was impossible for any opposition researcher to fin. >> this is just a good old- fashioned secret. a hands full of people knew about it and loyal to arnold schwarzenegger and never going to give it. >> he is not just a politician but an international movie star. >> tmz and entertainment tonight, hollywood is one of the most watched places in the universe. how did this star get away with it for so long?
6:09 pm
>> clearly the cooperation of this woman in hiding the identity of the child including schwarzenegger put some money to buy some lines -- silence. >> it appeared to work for years all the way through his office as governor. but at the conclusion of that, it started to unravel. he got clean with maria. she left. the story started breaking. the la times picked it up. and now an entire fleet of satellite trucks has pulled up next to this woman and that child's home. and now it's once again an international story. the only question is, is there any more out there that's going to come falling down? >> wow, a lot of blame going around but not for the child. >> no. not the child's fault. >> no. okay. thank you, phil. it has been a nail-biter for public schools waiting to hear how much money they are going to get from the state. this week, governor brown allocated millions to the system's budget. but ann shows us for a lot of education advocates, it doesn't add up to enough. ann? >> and, dana, money when the governor announced that public
6:10 pm
education would be getting $3 billion more, well, you would think that they would lose support and public education they would be celebrating. we found out today that is not necessarily the case. >> i am for kids and education is extremely important to me. >> reporter: sackrina shane was one of 300 people here for an education rally in concord. >> i have pre-school to college level kids so across the board and i have felt the impact. >> reporter: this was full of educators and politicians who have different opinions about the governor's budget announcement. >> it's very good news. but you have to understand it in the context of the last two years where we saw 20 percent cut out of k-12. >> reporter: assemblywoman susan organized this event. she is the chairman on finance. it will help the districts avoid having to take out loans. but the president said his district will still lead -- need a $40 million loan because
6:11 pm
the state will likely not pass its budget on time. and argues the governor's announcement wasn't what it appeared. is it cause for celebration? >> no. because i looked at the detail behind this claim of $3 billion and it really isn't an additional $3 billion in the state for education. >> reporter: he explains the state basically gave back money they were going to give the districts anyway next year. the money is for mental health services, a new expenditure for school districts since the state decided to stop paying for it. but the state's money won't completely cover the costs digging another hole for the districts to fill. and then there is another dilemma. will this week's so-called good news make people complacent thinking the problem is over. >> and i saw the newscast. things are better, not fixed but they are better. that's a problem. i don't want to take the pressure off where that pressure was. it belongs with the state of california. it belongs with the legislature. and the governor. >> and the pressure is still on because the governor's budget relies on a really big if.
6:12 pm
>> but as we speak now, education is still in a precarious position because it relies upon the extensions of those tax increases. >> exactly. >> and what are the chances that those will be extended? >> i have to be optimistic because i'm a teacher. i'm a legislature. i'm a mom. >> so another big rally to try to motivate this crowd. to contact republican lawmakers in sacramento and get them to support the contract extensions. this is cbs 5. >> i'm juliette goodrich. what bay area stores are doing to protect their high-priced hair extensions. a trend nationwide has turned deadly. chances are the value of your house is still going down. why the price of your homeowners insurance is about to go up? and it wasn't easy stealing a one ton piece of american naval history from an east bay park. how an angry citizen was able to help get it back.
