26 year old sergeant andrew tam reece see was arrested after he said he accidentally crossed the border with legally bought and registered guns. >> a judge released him last weekend and joining us now is gretna. host of on the record on fox news. gretna always great to see you and i have to tell you, you know this, you were one of the precious few who have been on this case since the get go. so you've got to be elated on this one, too. i am happy. i guess a description dog on a bone might be apt. it's like it was a story that i felt was ridiculous in the beginning. god give me a break. someone can make a wrong turn and end up in mexico, but i investigated and that's exactly what happened. he made a wrong turn. he would have made a turn iain you would have made, lucy would have made, i would have made anybody would have made and he ended up in mexico. >> it's a scary proposition. can you tell us what he told you about the conditions he was being kept in those months in mexican prison? terrible. i mean first of all you have to understand he doesn't speak spanish so he's almost in solitaire even when he is in
5:47 pm
solitary. he had other inmates threaten him. he was mocked. he was humiliated. he was handcuffed, arms and feet to the bed. he was stripped naked handcuffed sometimes. just terrible. it wasn't that way the entire time, but you have to understand this a very fragile man. he has ptsd which is why in san diego in the first place to get help. >> greta frameable who say how you can make a wrong turn and end up in mexico. you went there to san diego and you looked at what he did. of course. it sounds ridiculous. how do you make a wrong turn and end up mexico. i'm telling all the viewers out there, if you wanted to go to mexico -- if you wanted to go home to san diego from where he was you turn left and go to san diego since that was north. if you took that left which makes the most sense you ended up in mexico with no other choice and since that time, the state of california has put a brand new signs because everybody admits this is terrible. they can't change the road to sign but at least they've tried
5:48 pm
to mark it. >> thank you very much for talking to us. i'm sure his family is always thanking you for all the work did you on his behalf. the viewers -- the viewers people signed the petition, everybody. so it's a lot of americans. >> all right. greta and greta foss beaus exclusive airs at 7:00 p.m. during an hour long on the record called marine freed. that is on fox news channel. >> let's check in with your fox 29 weather authority. a little bit of a chilly and rainy night. a little bit. it's freezing in the studio ev even. >> the umbrellas came in handy today. they'll come in handy tonight. because we're not done with the rainfall just yet. some heavy rain even some thunderstorm activity this evening in south jersey. where you see the red and/or ranch and yellow that's where we're looking at very heavy rainfall right now just moving to the east of the garden state parkway but around brigantine, atlantic city, you are seeing those downpours. starting to taper off a bit around the philadelphia area. but toward medford lakes as well
5:49 pm
as hammonton where you see that yellow that's still pretty moderate rain. it's making for a wet thursday evening commute across the area but off to the west, we're still watching for a few scattered showers this activity will pinwheel through our area during the overnight. but we're also looking at some fog. so leftover showers tonight. some patchy fog. but then drier and blustery for friday. winds are going to go gust to over 30 miles an hour so hold on to that starring wheel especially over the bridges. and then as we move toward the weekend, below average temperatures that cool fall air will be moving in. temperatures right now in the low if you have tees but you can see outside of our studios it is wet. slick roadways, umbrellas are still up so allow extra travel time. but look at the temperature today. 56 degrees. that's it. we should top out right around 60 for this time of year. the record it's safe, 79 set back in 1948. current conditions right now, 57 degrees in atlantic city. we have 50 in trenton as well as
5:50 pm
reading. upper 40s right now towards the lehigh valley and mid 40s in the pocono mountains. so we're watching this storm system right now moving through with the shower showers, even thunderstorms down the shore. so as we time everything out, we're still looking at the clouds, some patchy fog tonight. but behind this system, we're going to see those winds pick up. so that will kind of scower everything out and len the atmosphere and then those winds really pick up during the day tomorrow once again gusting over 30 miles per hour so making high temperatures tomorrow in the low 50s feel more like the 40s. so bundle up. leftover showers and patchy fog mid 40s in the city. 40 degrees in the suburb for tonight and then 53 degrees. we'll call it partly sunny, blustery. those winds gusting over 30 miles per hour. there could be an isolated instability shower as that main system moves through during the day tomorrow afternoon. but as we take look at the forecast, temple game tomorrow night, grab that jacket and sweater. temperatures will be dropping.
5:51 pm
only 50 for the high temperature on saturday. and then 54 on sunday. right now sunday looks dry for all of the events. eagles game looks pretty good. for the high on monday. temperatures will be in the 50's and falling throughout the game into the 40s. veterans day looks good. low 60s. mid 50s for the high on wednesday. and then a cold blast mid 40s as we move into thursday. so the walk to end alzheimer's on sunday morning at citizens bank park temperatures in the low 50s. partly cloudy, chilly and then that evening temperatures for the light the night walk fall into the upper 40s grab a jacket for both events. >> thank you very much, scott. >> thank you. >> i don't have a jacket. >> you've got jackets to match every outfit. >> i got everything to match everything. >> eagles continue to get ready for this monday night game against carolina at the linc as we just heard. day two at practice with mark sanchez as your starting quarterback now because of the rain scott pots forecast the eagles had to practice indoors.
5:52 pm
now, when you look at the quarterback situation around the nfl there are not many good starting quarterbacks. let a lone a competent quarterback as backup. that's where the eagles made a good choice in signing mark sanchez as the backup. chip kelly has said he new sanchez for quite awhile. that's why this situation has work out so well. >> he came in and was a really good teammate from the get go. you know i think it's important that everybody gets along and everybody is on the same page and i think he has the same goals and aspirations as the other guys in the locker room and it was, you know, it wasn't one of those where it took him a little while for people to understand him. i think he's a likeable guy. i think people understand that he's here because he wants to win. >> all right. if you don't want to win you shouldn't be playing. all right. hottest receiver maybe in the league jeremy maclin. since he came to the he guess in 2009 he has caught passes from seven different quarterbacks. take look at the list. trent edwards, kevin kolb, nick
5:53 pm
foles, donovan mcnabb, kafka, mark sanchez and michael vick and to maclin it doesn't matter. >> the one thing that's obvious is the chemistry. obviously you want to be able to build that chemistry with one particular guy and continue to build on that, but, you know, i think, you know, in mark's situation with him being stabbed as he is i think it's made the transition a lot easier. >> all right. chip kelly for the first time responded to what was obviously a poor report on new the story basically said that the eagles coaches were thinking of benching nick foles before he suffered the injury. chip kelly was very emphatic with a response when i asked him to comment today. >> i don't know where that stuff comes from. i mean i know this. i know i control the roster and i think you guys can say first hand i don't talk to anybody so whoever says they have a source in terms of what's going on with roster maneuvers or people going up or going down they never talked to the right person because that comes from me and that never was any the case.
5:54 pm
i've got great faith in nick and he's a hell of a quarterback. i think sometimes he gets banged too much. i wish there was more people like nick foles in our lives. >> here's our football lineup for sunday. >> we've got a double header. cowboys and jaguars at 1:00 from london and giant and seahawks from seattle al 4:25. >> tony romo looks like he will be back playing sunday in london against jacksonville. cowboys quarterback only been in three play off games in his teen year in the league only won one of those games in his 10 years in the league. as far as the status with the back injury -- >> it's progressing. i think each day it gets, you know, a little bit improvement and i think you just keep trying to figure out what you're able to do each day and go on to the next and hopefully you're able to improve enough to get ready to go. >> you just can't win a play off game. (laughter).
5:55 pm
>> he didn't get in many. he doesn't win them when he gets in. >> some people are still blaming gentleman's simpson ornithes one when they were dating. >> sure just blame somebody else it's never the guy throwing the pass. sure. >> eagles -- >> i think they win. six-point favorite. carolina is not a good football team. but when a quarterback is in for the first game, his teammates have this energy for his first start, and they -- they play really, really great football around him and behind him and i think that's part of what's going to happen on monday night. i have no question eagles will win this game. none. >> all right. the game is at the linc. what's the forecast for the linc monday night. >> it looks look it will be dry. >> that's all that howard cares about dry. >> it looks like it will be dry and feeling more like fall. have a jacket. i think you'll be fine. >> i'm not wearing a jacket. >> no rain though. >> he's a tough man. he doesn't need that. are you kidding me. >> all right. >> we have another half hour full of news straight ahead coming up at sick neighbors in a local community afraid to walk into their own homes. what they are so scared of
