president-elect donald trump's transition team today. his foishgz cabinet positions and what will become of his business. >> michelle: what the upcoming i party and red event is all about and how you can work up a sweat while fwinting aid -- benefitting aid for aids of nevada. happening this weekend. we'll have more coming up >> announcer: news 3 starts right now. >> michelle: good afternoon everybody. the officer after that man was accused of trying to run the officer over with his car was in court for the first time today. >> kyndell: news 3's craig fiegener joins is live from the regional justice center with more. craig? >> craig: the preliminary hearing in this case was put off until early next year. the reason somewhat unusual. this is a case we first began to cover mid-november. it involves an allegation that a teenager tried to run down a metro cop who was approaching that teenager's vehicle during a
and we did see him in person in court morning. his attorney told the judge that he does know the attorney knows the officer, scott hinkley, who pritchard is accused of trying to harm. the incident happened mid-november near las crus court. pritchard was speeding and had expired registration when officer hinkley approached his car. the officer ended shooting at the car when he allegedly raced toward the officer in what the officer down. the judge decided there's the appearance of a conflict, not an actual conflict, but the appearance since the previously court appointed attorney to represent pritchard knows of the officer who fired the shots at pritchard. because of that and in an abundance of caution she appointed a new attorney. and because of that set a new preliminary hearing date in this case. so pritchard returns to court here at the regional justice center on january 12th for a preliminary hearing.
new attorney time to review the evidence. remember a preliminary hearing is for the judge to determine if there's enough evidence to hold a defendant over for trial. a very important part of the case that if successful, if the judge rules there's enough evidence, that moves that defendant closer to an actual trial. craig fiegener reporting live, news 3. >> michelle: two crooks caught on camera breaking into a parked suv in summerlin and stealing a gun and it was caught on tape. the owner says he only left it unlocked for five minutes but that was all it guys to get in and get out. you can see both of them rummaging through the car after the break-in one of them comes back on screen and seems to look directly at the camera. so we've paused this here. these still shots of these guys. i know it's blurry but take a good look. if you think you recognize them let metro know. you can also call crime stoppers. the number on the scene. >> kyndell: caesars says it will start charging for parking.
better experience for you the visitors in the long run. starting late next month eight properties will start charging for valet anywhere from eight to $18. then in 2017 you will start paying for parking also. the good news which mgm will start charging nevada in a few months. parking your car at the garage at any caesars properties will still be free if you live here. caesars says there reasons for the change. >> we're doing this because parking on our property is becoming increasingly scarce. we're hearing from loot of our highest spending customers they can't park anymore. so we feel like the paid parking program will address that serious customer service issue. third thing to point out is the revenue we're learning from the program will go towards upgrading our parking facility. adding l.e.d. guidance to make the experience more pleasant for customers. >> kyndell: parking upgrades
with caesars that will not start charging for parking. >> michelle: six people arrested during those protests that happened yesterday in our valley. this one last night. so they had one in the morning that we covered. then they went back out there last night. it started at carl's junior on las vegas boulevard near the stratosphere and they walked to the mcdonald's on paradise. some of them blocked an intersection while they were protesting. you can see they were taken away in handcuffs. the whole reason they're out here is for the movement. they want higher minimum wage in the state of nevada. a similar protest was held earlier that morning on the strip but nobody was arrested in that one. let's take live pictures on the roadways because we have a warning for commuters today. we are your traffic authority. things are looking good but this could change come tonight. n-dot is going to be shutting down a lane in each direction along north and southbound u.s. highway 95. this is going to happen between
evening and it will go on until 5:00 a.m. saturday morning. crews are demolishing the center median. this is part of project neon. so as we've been saying pack your patience. maybe if you can try to find an alternate route but be prepared for backups especially during the resh hour hours. >> kyndell: democrats in the house of representatives re-electing california congresswoman nancy pelosi as the minority leader today. tim ryan. ryan won 63 votes from the 198 member caucus. that happens to be 20 more than pelosi's challenger got the last time her leadership was contested in 2010. pelosi has led the party since 2002. her election is seen as a vote of confidence in her leadership following a demoralizing election for democrats. >> michelle: on the republican side, president-elect donald trump has announced that
