>> the sleet's actually pretty painful. >> reporter: cars coated. along with power lines and trees. in colorado, more than 200 flights delayed at the denver airport. the bromirski's now missing thanksgiving dinner in florida with their family. >> it's frustrating and a little disappointing. >> reporter: andrew greer's trying to get home to alaska. you've already been in transit for 24 hours. >> yes. >> reporter: when will you get home? >> ah, at 3:19 p.m. tomorrow. >> reporter: out west, parts of drought-ravaged california getting ten inches of snow in the last 24 hours. and damaging winds at this flea market. gusts as high as 45 miles an hour turning tents to sails. witnesses shaken. 11 hurt. luckily, just minor injuries. here at the denver airport, it's frigid and frozen on the tarmac. 10 degrees tonight, and in the single digits tomorrow. making the snow and ice hard to melt and travel conditions
rough. tom? >> it's not going to be easy to get around for some. okay, aditi, thank you. abc's senior meteorologist rob marciano is here. so, rob, where is this storm headed? >> reporter: tell you what, tom, it's really expanded. we have a whole list of weather problems to deal with. flash flood watches up, winter storm warnings, in between that, an ice storm warning. look at the map. fit things into motion here. heavy rain in dallas around 8:00 and that mix from amarillo all the way to oklahoma city. could see accumulations there, icy problem there. and then the heavy rains could cause some flooding, i think, in a good swath from midland, texas, all the way to chicago. half an inch or more of ice across the oklahoma and texas panhandle. that will likely take down power lines and very, very tricky roads there. and the heavy rains, could see as much as ten inches in some spots, and with the melting snow around chicago, that's going to cause flooding, too. >> going to be a messy storm. all right, rob, thank you so much. next to washington, and a bizarre security breach at the white house. this man climbing then jumping over the fence, wrapped in an
american flag and raising his arms in victory. all while the first family was inside, celebrating thanksgiving. he was immediately taken into custody. this, even after the secret service added spikes to the top of that fence. and in the race for the white house, donald trump lashing out against a reporter. he's done that before, but this time, appearing to mock that reporter for a disability. tonight, the video, and what trump is saying about it now. here's abc's cecilia vega. >> reporter: it's being called a new low even for donald trump. the presidential front-runner in south carolina this week, appearing to mock a disabled journalist. >> now, the poor guy, you've got to see this guy, "ah, i don't know what i said! i don't remember!" >> reporter: that reporter? "the new york times'" serge kovaleski, who has a chronic condition affecting his joints that limits flexibility in his arms. tonight, "the new york times" firing back, saying, "we're outraged that he would ridicule the physical appearance of one of our reporters." it came as trump defended his claim that he saw people in new
jersey cheering on 9/11. law enforcement and government officials now rejecting that as false. but this is hardly the first time trump has come under fire for offending someone. from mexicans -- >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> reporter: to veterans -- >> he's not a war hero. i like people that weren't captured, okay? >> reporter: to women. >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs -- >> only rosie o'donnell. "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!" >> reporter: trump not backing down this time either, saying he was merely mimicking a flustered reporter, tweeting, "if mr. kovaleski is handicapped, i would not know because i do not know what he looks like." >> that was trump today and cecilia is with us on set. and cecilia, yet another tweet from trump? >> reporter: that's right. he says the reporter is using his disability to grandstand and is demanding now an apology from "the new york times." as for not knowing that reporter, serge kovaleski, he
says he covered trump for years, and in an interview with "the washington post," he says he is sure that trump remembers him and his condition, tom. >> trump staying in the headlines always. cecilia, thank you. next tonight, a new look at the deadly encounter between a chicago police officer and 17-year-old laquan mcdonald. the view from officer jason van dyke's squad car. you can see him chasing mcdonald there through a burger king parking lot. then, moments later, van dyke shot him dead. protesters gathering even on this thanksgiving day and promising bigger disruptions tomorrow. abc's alex perez in chicago tonight. >> reporter: tonight, our first look at a revealing new video that shows 17-year-old laquan mcdonald, moments before he was shot. the dash cam from chicago police officer jason van dyke's vehicle captures the pursuit, back in october 2014. van dyke then opens fire as mcdonald is walking away. 16 shots in 15 seconds. >> shut it down! >> if we don't get it -- >> shut it down! >> reporter: in chicago wednesday night, more protests.
at one point, tearing lights off the city's christmas tree. protesters are furious it took state's attorney anita alvarez nearly a year to charge van dyke. community members at one church today demanding alvarez step down. >> i want to pray for the calm of the city. because we can be -- we could be on the verge of another ferguson. >> reporter: but alvarez defends the lengthy investigation, saying the time was needed to review evidence and charge van dyke with first degree murder. >> it's the first time it's happened in over30 years in chicago. so, these are very, very heavy charges. >> reporter: van dyke's defense argues he fired at mcdonald because he feared for his life. the teen was carrying a three-inch knife. but investigators say he was not threatening van dyke at the time of the shooting. the citizen watchdog group invisible institute says at least 20 complaints were filed against van dyke in his 14-year career as an officer, including allegations of using excessive force and racial slurs. but so far, van dyke was not disciplined. abc news confirmed 18 complaints.
