the men and the follow up investigation will be handled by the san mateo county sheriff's office. i know a lot of people are under the misconception that always fists are a deadly weapon , other or not, but ktvu legal analyst michael cardoza says the man who was punched could potentially have a case against tyson, both in criminal and civil court. he has no right to punch anybody, no matter what that person said there that's not justification for punching someone, especially with mike tyson skills. cardoza says tyson celebrity status could cut both ways and he is a trained box or that certainly would cut against him in the courtroom. should it ever get to a jury trial, which i doubted, ever will head one word of advice for tyson anger management, michael. now. sarah birchfield of berkeley woman who was on that plane tells me she had seen the drunk man at the airport bar and it was annoyed. he was on her flight, she says. people should know when to back

4:11 pm
any other wealthy or developed nation in our world. vice president harris also met with expecting families and talk to members of the maternal healthcare workforce. alright it was a hard fought campaign for a state assembly seats, one that was dominated by the by housing, homelessness and public safety. so what can san franciscans expect from its next assembly member, while supervisor matt haney is here live in studio to talk about his dominating victory and his priorities as he leaves the tenderloin for sacramento? also you may have seen these ads on tv attacking tesla's self driving technology coming up today at 4 30. we'll hear from the man behind this campaign who is running for a campaign who is running for a california senate seat. meet apartment 2a, 2b and 2c. 2a's monitoring his money with a simple text. like what you see abe? yes! 2b's covered with zero overdraft fees when he overdraws his account by fifty bucks or less.

4:13 pm
go l election for the state assembly district 17 seat, san francisco supervisor matt haney won by wide margins and election where
4:14 pm
housing was a crucial issue, and supervisor haney joins us now live here in studio. congratulations on tuesdays when thank you. yeah we feel good. let's talk a little bit about how this victory came about. what do you attribute? your decisive win on tuesday, too. you know, we talked about the things that san francisco voters care about. housing homelessness , public safety the sky stuff. e talked about you know, san franciscans like the entire barria and country have been and they're looking for politicians and elected officials who are grounded in the thingsk hard. and we wanna nearly every precinct in the city. i think tg about things they care about, and they want to send someone to sacramento who can actually deliver supervisor, some political observers noted, and ideological shift a little bit in your efforts to move yourself away from a typical san francisco progressive and maybe
4:15 pm
a little bit more moderate. what do you make of those observations? and especially when it comes to the issue of housing. i represent a district right now that is experiencing a lot of the failures, failures and biggest challenges that we have in the city and the state, homelessness, crime street conditions, and so when you live in that situation, and you see those problems, you have to be grounded in reality. that's not a progressive thing. it's not a moderate thing. it's not a conservative thing. it's a who's going to get something done things. and so i focused on those issues focused on those issues as a supervisor, and i'm willing to take them on grounded in real experiences of residents . you know, housing is one of them. if you're a progressive or moderate, and you look at those rent costs, you should be for more housing. there is not enough housing being built in san francisco or around our state. rent is too high. and so for me, i don't think that's a moderate issue or moving to the center. that's a common sense issue to be for more housing. this district represents the mission and the financial district two areas, especially
4:16 pm
where residents have long complained about soaring rents and high cost of housing. what solutions to offer once you arrive in sacramento? well, we've got to change some of the zoning so that we can build more housing everywhere. there are parts of our city and our state, or you're not even able to build housing. except for single family homes. we have to make sure that we make much deeper and greater investments in building affordable housing. solutions like social housing, something i'm strongly supportive of, and we've got to get moving faster. we've gotta streamline so that you don't have all this bureaucracy and red tape that slows down housing from actually getting built. how hopeful are you that some of the things that you talked about on the campaign, you'll be able to actually make happen once you get to sacramento come from san francisco, where it's hard to get much done at all. and i'm hopeful that i can take those experiences and those skills and go up to sacramento and see some real action. you know, we can't solve these problems in san francisco alone. things like homelessness. what we're seeing in the tenderloin. it takes shared responsibility, real
4:17 pm
statewide plans and accountability to see change. so i you know, you see people come from out from san francisco and go to other places and able to deliver and get things done. our governor or senator, uh, now vice president. and so i really want to bring that tradition of leadership coming out of san francisco that actually can deliver bold change on these issues. you brought up your district right now that you represent in the city as a supervisor, of course, the tenderloin in c, just a really troubled neighborhood you've got, you know, homelessness, poverty, substance abuse crime. you've been in office for some time saa lot has changed, and in fact, the situation has gotten worse in the tenderloin. we have made a lot of positive changes. we brought more community policing . we've built a lot of housing. we've transformed our mental health system. but at the end of the day, the problems that you see in the tenderloin a reflection of broader failures in our in our state and our city. we're pushing people containing these problems. people who are homeless people
4:18 pm
have trauma or giving them a bus ticket and say, go to the tenderloin. one neighborhood can't solve all these issues on our own. we need every city and county to build housing and have real plans when it comes to homelessness and be accountable for where that money is going, and so the tenderloin and then the problems that you see there are really a reflection of it being used as a dumping ground. it's not serving the residents of the tenderloin. it's not serving the state instead, let's actually solve these problems with real plans and accountability that when you leave the tenderloin head to sacramento say goodbye is the san francisco supervisor hello to an assembly member. you know, priority number one once you get there. homelessness and housing . absolutely i think the state needs a plan on housing that we don't and homelessn now. every city and county should be held accontal health beds, treatment shelter beds, put the funding behind it bring some of the innovative ideas that we've done in san francisco and actually take those statewide. i'm gonna be relentless. on challenging
4:19 pm
the status quo on on homelessness. what we are doing is not working. it's not only about housing, though. it's also people with mental illness, drug addiction. it's fentanyl and real solutions on those things, okay, we're just about out of time. so i would like to talk with you more about some of those potential solutions. but you're going to be sworn in first week of may a lot of discussion about who may succeed you on the board of supervisors. who would you like to see? fill your shoes? san francisco made history a number of years ago with harvey milk coming as one of the first lgbt openly lgbt elected officials. we have the opportunity to make history again. bringing honey mahogany, my chief of staff, the director of the democratic party in san francisco, founder of the transgender cultural district. i would love to see honey mahogany be the next supervisor in district six. she's qualified and brilliant. so i'm hoping that happens. oko mayor. london breed supervisor matt haney soon to beks again fg the time to much for having me. thank you so much. well as i
4:20 pm
mentioned san francisco mayor london breed will be appointing a replacement for supervisor haney seat and today on mornings on to she told us this election process is just getting started. there are a number of people who have expressed interest and i'm not prepared to provide those specific names at this time, but i am starting to set up meetings with people who have expressed interest, but i also am reaching out to members of the community to get their feedback and their suggestions. so this is going to be, um, a detailed process. uh supervisor haney is probably going to take office sometime in early may. so i'm going to be having a number of meetings, including possibly this weekend , but it's important just to get more feedback from people who actually live in the district, says her criteria for the seat includes someone who deeply cares about the community and someone who will work closely with the mayor's office to bring transformative change. hello. barry of weather is still some showers developing across parts of the region. we're s into youy

4:32 pm
motives for this campaign. are you running to win or are you running to take down tesla? no i'm running to deal with this issue. it's a bigger issue than just tesla. it is basically all of the things that our lives depend on for the last five or 10 years have been taken over by computer controls, and much of the software that controls those things is does not work very well. it has bugs. it has security flaws. like the power grid, hospitals, dams, bridges, pipelines, all those sorts of things. and ah! people don't understand this. it has become pretty well known. i've been talking about this for many years pretty well known among a lot of people that basically we're vulnerable. putin could just push a button somewhere. and bring down the power grid. um this is just simply not acceptable. we have to do something about it, and that's
4:33 pm
what my candidacy is about. it's about the bigger issue. so but is there a risk in focusing in on just one single issue? i mean, i don't have to tell you here in california. we're struggling right now, with the high cost of living, not enough affordable housing, homelessness crisis. aren't there more pressing issues here in our state that than tesla self driving cars? maybe then said tesla self driving cars, particularly but the bigger issue. i think not, um, the we're nobody's going to care about taxes when they when the electric power goes out, no one's going to care about any of these issues. um when things don't work when things stop functioning. we really need to solve this problem, because if we don't everything else doesn't matter. who cares what the taxes are. when, when you can't when you're looking for food to eat. um no one's no one's really interested in that anymore. so that's why i consider this the most important thing and i'm asking people to vote. if they think this is an issue that
4:34 pm
really has to be solved. then then they should vote for me. and if you think this is going to be a winning issue for you in california i don't know whether i will win. i am trying to convince a large number of people that this is a serious problem, and they really should take it seriously because they're not. i've been to the government, the regulatory agencies, congress, um corporations themselves and it's nearly impossible to get them to move. um they think things ever just are fine just the way they are. and i don't think that and so i'm i'm creating a campaign. people can join up and say we really need to solve this problem. okay tell me a little bit about the background. about how how these ads were put together. where did you get all of this? footage from? that is purportedly showing tesla drivers having issues with their self driving vehicles. where did the footage come from? and how much money are you spending to put these ads on tv? well the
4:35 pm
issue with with tesla is that they have put on the market this thing that called full self driving, which is just terrible it we studied it. about every eight minutes. it does something that would cost you your driver's license if you were trying to get a new license. every 36 minutes. it's it looked. it's looking to get into a collision. that makes a stupid mistake. you have to watch it every single minute to stop it from doing things. that will cause problems. it's in development. it's not a production product. it shouldn't be in 100,000 cars, which it is um, so ultimately, how do we deal with this? we need to have we need to remove these cars from the road. before we can before we can really be safe. alright appreciate you coming on to make the case here. a senate candidate, dan o dowd, thank you for taking the time to speak with us today. i want to point out that we did reach out today to tesla for a comment and
4:36 pm
reaction. to these ads, this ad that's running across california and across the country. we have not yet heard back. we also should point out that we reached out to senator alex padilla's office about dan o'dowd's campaign and they gave us this statement. it's brief, it reads . senator padilla is focused on continuing to deliver for californians. and earning their vote well. meantime tesla founder elon musk says he has lined up the financing now to buy twitter. musk said that some of the $46.5 billion in funding comes from morgan stanley and other banks. last week, musk offered $43 billion for the san francisco based company must also said in the securities filing that he is exploring what's called the tender offer to acquire shares of twitter directly from the shareholders. twitter said in a statement that it is conducting a careful, comprehensive and deliberate review of the offer. on wall street. shares of twitter were slightly higher today. overall stocks were lower on wall street today after fed chair jerome

the insurance company wasn't fair. i didn't know what my case was worth, so i called the barnes firm. i'm rich barnes. it's hard for people to know how much their accident case is worth. let our injury attorneys help you get the best result possible. stod with andrew schwartz. he's the manager of uc berkeley's central sierra snow lab. it's received 14 inches of snow and expects another 1 to 2 ft of snow to fall. he says. this storm is indeed cause for celebration. historically it's actually not all that rare for us to get snow in april and even may. but what makes this current storm so special is just how dry the beginning of the year has been. and now that we're getting away from that, you know, we had basically the driest start to a year that january through march period that california has ever seen, so it's so great to be seeing this know how significant is this in terms of combating
4:43 pm
the drought, every drop of water that comes out of the sky. whether it be as rain or snow flake is incredibly important to help us with our water resources. it is and so these bigger storms later in the spring, are incredibly helpful for at least easing some of the pressure of the drought. um and helping with our forest fire danger. how much snow are we? are we seeing from this latest storm? we already have about 14 inches of snow as the snow lab and we're expecting about another two ft over the next couple of days, so we're expecting plenty plenty more and hopefully some really nice totals come out of this with plenty of water and that snow. we're seeing some ski resorts even pushed back. at least one of them pushed back their closing date because of the snow that they're getting. that's another great benefit of these late season storms that are this large, you know, of course, we get to be out there on the snow that we love for longer and the other benefit, too. as you know, that does allow us to kind of have that snow reservoir on the sierra nevada. up there and trickling down water for us as well. so great recreation and
4:44 pm
great for our water as well. it's been so pessimistic for so long with watering california and the drought. and while this doesn't resolve it completely, this is definitely cause for celebration and cause for at least a little bit of optimism. and so definitely a little bright spot. in what has already been a little bit of a downer beginning to the year. alright schwartz says this storm will push the state to one of the snowiest april on record hard to believe, but the sierra would need to receive another 5 to 6 ft. of snow to actually beat that record. and as we mentioned earlier all of that snow, the sierra is now under an avalanche warning through tomorrow morning. or april so far has been pretty productive. of course, the rainfall for us here in the bay area and the snow piling up in the sierra right now we do have chain controls on 80 and 50. and this was a scene from tahoes. westshore homewood . and of course, this this is one of the many resorts closed for the season. so those lifts are not moving around at all. but still nice to see the fresh
