the man topping trump, dr. ben carson, today on "gma," trump hitting him hard. >>ben doesn't have the experience. it's not his thing, george. you know, you're born with it. it's not his thing. he hasn't got the temperament for it. it's not the right thing for him. >> well i would say experience comes from a variety of different things. it didn't only have to be in one segment or the other. >> i'm praying for you! >> reporter: today in tampa, 1,000 carson supporters turned up for his book signing. >> he's a true christian with values. >> he stands up and speaks his mind. >> reporter: carson's fans embracing him as political outsider with humble roots, and hardline conservative positions on issues like abortion. >> i'm a reasonable person and if people can come up with a reasonable explanation of why they would like to kill a baby, i'll listen. >> reporter: trump, the other main outsider in the race, selling a different message. but together, they have dealt a blow to establishment candidates like jeb bush.

coming through the field of debris, looking for clues that could help solve this mystery. the u.s. is not denying that terrorism could be to blame, but has ruled out a missile from the ground. a u.s. satellite picked up infrared flashes, which could be the crash itself, an engine or fuel tank explosion or a bomb. a missile would have left an infrared trail. the search area is now 11 square miles. indicating they believe the plane came apart high in midair. the answers to this tragedy will come from the wreckage and the black boxes, being analyzed inside this building in cairo by russian, egyptian and other international teams. the plane's owner deny mechanical or pilot error is to blame. egypt's president has slammed allegations of a terrorist attack as propaganda. today, a mother held a picture of her 28-year-old son, crying as she tells us he won the

>> plane has possibly gone down. you have one that parachuted. >> reporter: the small plane with three on board came down on a fayetteville, arkansas, road, hitting a truck with a woman and two young children inside. >> all occupants are out of the plane. all of them are ambulatory. >> reporter: piloting the plane? former walmart executive, 56-year-old bill simon who used to run all of the retailers' u.s. operations. it was just after takeoff that the small plane developed a problem. >> they suffered a very severe loss of oil pressure. they were losing engine and altitude and so they popped the emergency chute, on the plane. >> reporter: it's the type of plane like this one taking off that has the built-in parachute. it saved lives today, only two minor injuries. david, the faa is investigating. >> david kerley, thank you. and now to a developing headline this evening involving that major e. coli scare and chipotle. the popular restaurant closing 43 locations across two states. and late today, the number of

the same time. the company saying in a statement, "the safety and well-being of our customers is always our highest priority." late today, health officials said the number of victims has continued to grow, now 37 across two states. fortunately, no one has died, david. >> neal, thank you. we're going to turn now to a stunning new admission from volkswagen tonight. the company's internal investigation revealing 800,000 additional vehicles with irregular levels. the discovery could cost the company $2 billion to correct. and takata back in the news tonight. federal regulators fining the company $70 million for mishandling the massive air bag recall. 19 million vehicles involved. exploding air bags, inflators linked to seven depths sdeaths in the u.s. takata facing $130 million fine if it doesn't obey terms of the settlement. that would make it the largest penalty ever impoetzed on the
auto industry. the temperature extremes across this country and the map says it all. there. cold in the west and here in the east, highs in some places, 20 degrees above snowstormal. let's get right to chief meteorologist ginger zee, because so many of you are last? >> reporter: the answer is one to three days. map. you have that high pressure mid-atlantic. it keeps circling the warmth in. philadelphia, mid 70s today. it doesn't last forever. you see chicago drops off 20 degrees by the time we reach the end of the work week. new york, washington, d.c., staying warm as we kick off the weekend. we're still watching eight states in the west, too, with that vigorous winter storm, david. >> ginger, thank you. great to have you at night. we move on now to a growing controversy this evening, after a confrontation aboard a spirit airlines plane and the debate now about what really happened on that flight from los angeles to dallas. seven passengers kicked off
after a disagreement over seat assignments. some of them claiming it was racial discrimination, but tonight, not everyone on board that plane thinks it's that clear cut. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas now. >> reporter: you are watching a confrontation which ends with a group passengers, all black, being removed from this commercial jet. some those kicked off are crying racism. >> i'm really humiliated, just for the simple fact that, you know, you hear about this stuff happening in america, you know discrimination issues. >> reporter: but what really happened is in dispute. police say they were called after an argument broke out over a double-booked seat. >> i don't want to talk to you. >> reporter: an african-american male passenger apparently was frustrated and some witnesses say a white flight attendant considered at least one in the group a threat. >> the stewardess got a little nervous and they wanted him to leave the plane. >> reporter: but while harsh words clearly were exchanged, other passengers were confused, suggesting matters never truly got out of hand. >> there was no loud noise or language or no yelling or anything like that.
>> reporter: and that is why alexandra wright, one of those removed, is so angry. >> why is that six black people get kicked off the plane? >> pierre thomas with us now. is the airline saying anything >> reporter: david, they're saying they're investigating the incident and that they do not tolerate discrimination. but there's lots of frustration here, but no one was arrested or detained, sometimes with issues of race, david, there's no black and white clear answer. >> all right, our seen your justice correspondent pierre thomas. great to have you in new york tonight. in the meantime, in chicago this evening, there is a manhunt under way for the killer of 9-year-old tyshon lee, shot in an alley near his grandmother's house on chicago's south side. authorities offering a $20,000 reward and investigating if the little boy was possibly targeted after it was revealed the child was shot at close range. investigators now wondering if it was gang retaliation. we move forward tonight, and to your money now. and what we're just learning about some of those patriots scenes honoring our veterans at major sporting events.
honoring here roafs, but some of those pro sports teams could be charging taxpayer dollars. so, tonight, abc's senior national correspondent jim avila asking the tough questions, is this your money? o say can you see >> reporter: it's a fan favorite. celebrating america's military heroes on fields and at stadiums across the country. but in professional sports, some teams are actually charging the pentagon, the american taxpayer, for those tributes on the field. the defense department got a bill after soldiers unfurled that giant flag at this buffalo bills game. and when vets threw out the first pitch at three milwaukee brewers games. and when this soldier rappelled down a rope at center ice to drop the puck at a minnesota wild game. in each case, the bill sent to the american taxpayer. >> to charge the taxpayers for it in the name of patriotism is disingenuous at best and,
>> reporter: senator mccain calls it paid patriotism, and in contracts between sports teams and the pentagon, found these price tags. the new york jets, a team valued at 1$1.8 billion, submitted a $10,000 bill for a soldier to be an honorary captain. the milwaukee brewers charged $7,500 to throw three ceremonial first pitches. and the dallas mavericks charged 5,000 for their cheerleaders to throw national guard t-shirts provided by the national guard. the leagues and teams deny they charge for patriotic displays, but say they do have contracts with the pentagon to help in recruiting. they insist the tributes are added for free. but we asked the commissioner or major league baseball why those contracts say otherwise. so, what the contract says not correct? >> i'm not saying there aren't contracts that contain that language. i'm saying, in fact, discounted the deal so we were not
receiving payment for those items. >> reporter: but the leagues have provided no proof of any discounts for the touching tributes sports fans so love. >> and jim avila with us now. eye-opening reporter there. some of the teams could be charging american taxpayers, the pentagon, to honor these veteran veterans on the field. you have any word tonight from major league baseball or the nfl? >> reporter: well, david, major league baseball and the nfl both say they will review all team contracts with the pentagon. and the nfl going further, they say, if they find any cases of paid patriotism, they will refund the money. david? >> jim avila will stay on this story from washington. jim, thank you. and there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this tuesday. the abc news exclusive. robin williams' widow, speaking out for the first time since his death. what she believes led him to take his own life. the condition revealed in his autopsy. and tonight, something she wants everyone to know. that's just ahead. we also reported here on the man caught on video, taking aim at his uber driver.
