the only thing you can say, she went missing on the second of august. we presume she's dead. we don't have evidence to that effect. >> reporter: giordano has been jailed for four months. photos show the couple two hours before she went missing. his attorney argues there was no good reason to keep giordano in jail and the judge agreed. >> the judge decided she would not get another extension. that means giordano has to be released tuesday at 8:00 in the evening. >> reporter: prosecutors filed an appeal. it may not come in time to keep him behind bars. >> after it expires, there's no legal bound to keep him to the islands anymore. so he can leave to go back to the united states. >> reporter: prosecutors are saying the hearing to appeal the ruling could come on monday.

>> the road was shut down for 45 minutes while they investigated the cause of the accident. so far, no one has been charged. >> and they are off. black friday still in full swing. many folks across the area are taking full advantage of the deals. the premium outlets were a popular stop. many outlet stores were open by midnight. some say getting up early was worth it. >> i got great stuff. i got $10 jeans. that was my best find. i was exced about that. >> we got probably $250 worth of stuff and it cost us $109. >> wow. many stores opened earlier than previous years like best buy. they opened at midnight nationwide. some shoppers say the extra hours helped them ease the big crowds. the black friday rush took a dangerous turn at a walmart in los angeles. authorities evacuated the store
after a woman used pepper spray on a crowd of shoppers as people rushed for a deal on video games. they suffered from burning eyes to difficulty breathing. >> once they released the games a bunch of people were pushing around. i was shoved into a box of games. a lady came out with pepper spray. my brother was shot in the face. he couldn't see. he was on the floor. >> i won't be coming back. i don't want to do this anymore. >> they eventually let everyone back into the store to continue shopping. the woman who set off the pepper spray got away. investigators are trying to identify her. there was more pepper spray at a walmart in north carolina. an off duty officer helping with security used pepper spray trying to make an arrest. a man fell into a display while people were lining up for discounted cell phones.

concerned with coming out? >> yes, i had my kids with me. other than that, it went great. >> reporter: in l.a., several people were pepper sprayed. black friday can bring out the worst in people. desperation to get the last few marked down items and to get the parking lot closer to the mall. >> it's terrible. there's no need for that. 15 people get hurt and you know, there's no need to go into the store and hurt someone. >> i think they need to take their time. they ain't going nowhere. everybody going to the same place. to push people out of the way or honk their horn, there's plenty of other places to park at. >> back up. >> reporter: last night, security guards and police officers had to take control of late comers tried to cut in front of shoppers waiting in line for hours. >> back in the year people knew how to go out shopping and get what they need. people think this is the last day they are going to do their
shopping. that's the attitude. >> reporter: in landover hills, more than one shopper walked out empty handed. you walked out of walmart with nothing, no bags. >> the lines are extremely long. it's not worth it. >> reporter: some didn't want to miss out on the experience so they ventured out hoping to miss the overnight and early morning madness. >> i didn't want to be involved in the traffic, people standing in line and all jammed. i was like no. >> reporter: she certainly had the right idea. here at the mall at prince george's, they tried something different this year. different stored opened up at a different time. there wasn't a stampede of everyone coming in. we'll have more on that. darcy spencer reporting live, back to you. >> thank you. after seeing that, i'm glad i had to work today. i don't want to be out in that mess.

flight 1768 say they boarded in charlotte in the afternoon only to sit on the ground for at least an hour. officers suddenly came aboard. the police and the bomb squad rushed in. they told us we were not arrested. we didn't do anything, but they are going to call our names. >> reporter: they will only confirm there was a security issue that led from them being taken from the plane and questioned. this woman says it developed after another passenger took her concerns to the flight crew. >> they went to the pilot and said they are placed in such a way that it indicates they are going to try to take control of the plane. >> reporter: the students say security officials questioned them about whether they had military training. eventually, all were allowed to reboard. >> we are not blaming the police. those men were good men. >> they are doing their jobs. >> they are doing their jobs, but the people, the way they
think when they see a middle eastern guy walk on to the airplane. >> reporter: some passengers missed their thanksgiving dinners. >> it seemed strange, but also one of the things was when they were done interrogating them and there wasn't a problem, they were spilled out on the lobby. they were no apology, explanation, nothing. >> reporter: other passengers say the wait was worth ensuring their security. >> they do the best they can. you can't forget there are security concerns in america. we have to be careful. >> the d.c. based council is looking into the incident. more on what they have to say coming up on news 4 at 6:00. >> thank you, julie. still ahead, police said it was a medical emergency. the victims tell a very different story. what they claim a driver did before plowing into a group of day laborers. plus, thinking small this holiday season. how a major credit card company is trying to change the way you

customers. that matters to consumers in this day and age. >> reporter: small stores are at a disadvantage to retailers. >> small businesses are the life blood of our communities. >> reporter: for the second straight year, american express launched a small business ad campaign. >> one purchase is all it takes. >> pick your favorite local business. >> reporter: to steer holiday shoppers to local, independently owned businesses instead of bigger stores on black friday or online cyber monday. this, as new research shows small businesses raise the value of property that surrounds them. >> due to the popularity of the small businesses. >> reporter: for obvious reasons, american express is hoping small business saturday becomes as successful as black
