5:00 pm
i have the same goal today. that is why i decided to announce my retirement effective at the end of the season. this is a tragedy. it was -- tragedy. it was one of the worst sorrows of my life. joe paterno has been a part of penn state football the last 61 years. the 84-year-old coach was hired as an assistant in 1950. he became the head coach in 1966. paterno is the all-time winningest coach in division 1 history with 409 vectors and won -- vectors. winning 9 national championships. the 37 bowl appearances and 24 bowl wins are both records. he met with the coaching staff and players to tell them the news in person. we were told it was a emotional session with paterno breaking down in tears. the penn state board of trustees is set to meet tonight to talk about the scandal and the future of paterno and the university's president, graham spannier. the board could decide to force
5:01 pm

5:02 pm
moment, it mean a more selfless act to maybe step away. i think that there is so much is rounding this and so big. there are kids involveed and that is a hard one for, i think, people to be able to comprehend and say if where's doing it for the football team, that is noting abouter than the well-being of a child. so, it might make more sense if he may step away. we'll have to wait and see. it's wednesday right now. a couple more days we'll have to so if that maintains what the story is by saturday. >> all right, i have one more question. you took some calls on penn state and the whole scandal. you being from penn state. a lot of people are taking exception to what you're saying about joe following protocol in this who will thing. a lot of people angry at you about this. >> it's interesting. i'm trying to point out the information. and i underattend that people
5:03 pm
want to get -- understand that people want to get upset and be bothered because of the moral value that should have taken place during the course of this whole ordeal, but what i was merely trying to say is what this person over here, how they may be raised and this person over here may have been raised is totally different and so some people, protocol may be the way that they do things. and it may be differently over here. that was the point i was trying to raise. people are going to want to hear what they want to hear and say what they want to say. that is part of it, that comes with it. >> thank you very much for tacking with us. we -- talking with us. we know he has to do his radio show. we're going to try to catch him later on in the show. that is the latest from here at 106.7 the fan with lavararyington talking about the -- lavar airington talking about the penn state scandal. >> we asked our facebook fans if they think the exit was the right move. andrew said quote bad move. the media shouldn't blow cases

5:07 pm
control the house of delegates in virginia. after yesterday's election, their control is larger and they have smore, at least, seats in the house. the prize was the sate senate which, democrats controlled by two seats. because of the narrow and apparently and enlargingly narrow victory by the republicans and another win elsewhere in the state, it looks like republicans will have control of the state senate also. relatively urban fredericksburg, as expected, went solidly for 28-year democratic incumbent state senator ed houck. >> where's been a longtime resident, 28 years. where's one of the seniors there. where's always treated thisiary with the utmost honesty and everything. >> reporter: houck and the democratic majority redrew lines to redraw part of alley albemarle county that of the secs of the senatorial

5:09 pm
unofficialitaly. it gets certified later this month. the loser, the apparent loser has an opportunity because the margin of victory is so small to have ask for a recount. but since the republican margin is incoming at this point, it -- increasing at this point, it's looking better for reeves. therefore, the virginia senate in the next session will be 2020, the lieutenant governor gets to cast the deciding vote and this puts the chamber in the hands of republicans. >> all right, john henrehan in spotsylvania county. thank you for the update. looking at the big issues decided nationwood, voters in mississippi defeated the personhood amendment, which would have declared that life begins at fertilization. it was intended in the tool in the fight against abortion. pro-choice supporters said it would have criminalized birth control methods like the pill and the iud. 55% of mississippi voters rejected the initiative. and in ohio, a big victory for unions.

5:33 pm
them ended up behind bars. the law has been on the books in the distribute for awhile. last month, d.c.'s council passed legislation ending the practice following sharp criticism from aaa and following our reports. john townsend with aaa mid- atlantic joins us tonight. thank you for joining us. >> thank you and great being with you. >> reporter: what is your reaction now that we have the specifics about the number of people who were actually arrested and spent time behind bars? >> it's four more -- far more extensive than thought. i have the list of the names of the persons arrested and that is almost horrifying. it's a huge number of persons arrested and detained because of the expired tags. the thing that is disconcerting about this is that you will not be arrested for this. in the jurisdiction in the entire united states. >> and just to play devil's advocate, we learned in most cases, the drivers were given seating as. only a small portion of them were locked up.
5:34 pm
so, what is your response to that in. >> it doesn't matter, like council member jim graham said and graham said if one person were arrested, that is one person too many. when you look at the 50 jurisdictions and look at every city across the country, it's not done and this is ab administrative issue and paperwork issue. it's not a traffic misdemeanor but an infraction that rises to the level of a parking texet and that is tant amount to arresting you or myself for having a parking ticket and that is not done. this is too draconian and this harkins back to the days when d.c. was, remarks the murder capital of the united states and they could -- was the murder capital of the united states. what we're finding are law- abiding citizens being arrested for no other charge other than the expired tags. they don't have contraband in the car, no weapons or drugs or
5:35 pm
anything like that. this clearly says the rest, where the top charge involveed expired tags. and that is what is so troubling about this. >> let me ask you what do you think the punishment should be for driving with expired tags? should people get off with a warning and given, you know, a ticket? >> let me tell you what the standard is across the country. in most states, if the tag has been expired for less than 6 months, six months, not 30 days as is the case in the district, you simply are given a ticket. and if it's expired for more than six months, you may have points on your driver's license or you may have to appear in court and defend that. but the fact of the matter is this is a minor traffic infraction. there are others who say maybe those people who are driving with an expired tag may not have insurance. that is an altogether different
5:36 pm
issue. people populled over for this are because they made a mistake of forgetfulness. >> d.c. couple took that law off of the books. thank you for coming in, john townsend. >> and thank you for being a great devil's advocate, too. >> thanks, john. this tonight's consumer alert, another recall from toyota. it's calling half a million vehicle mostly in the u.s. the problem is a glitch in the steering. it can make cars harder to steer, several toyota and lexus car models are included in the recall. which go to and click on the tab to see the whole list. coming up, we are learning new information about the disappearance about a virginia teenager. >> wait until you hear where she was found and who is facing abduction charges. wisdom. and what we're talking about, the big scandal going on at penn state, we're here at 106.7 the fan and lavar arrington. they're taking a lot of calls
