"these stories are true. at the time, i said to myself that what i did was okay. but what i learned later in life, too late, is that the power i had over these women is that they admired me. and i wielded that power irresponsibly. i have been remorseful of my actions. and i've tried to learn from them. and run from them. i learned yesterday the extent to which i left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves." >> there is no greater threat to women than men! we're the number one threat to women! >> reporter: he acknowledged his fame and influence silenced the stories of his victims.

3:39 pm
this shocking police involved shooting on a busy highway. police in providence, rhode island say it started when a man stole a police car with a gun inside. police later got a tip that the suspect had hopped into a white pickup truck. so when they spotted this white pickup, they tried to stop the driver but he refused. not knowing that driver inside was not the suspect, but he would not pull over either. they begin pursuit. traffic cameras shows the truck weaving up i-95, cutting off drivers, a swarm of squad cars right behind driving at high speeds. >> reporter: finally unable to go any further in heavy traffic but then he starts ramming cars in an attempt to get away, repeatedly slamming into the car in front of him and the driver inside. >> this vehicle is now being used as a weapon. >> reporter: that's when, as you can see on this body cam video, police open fire. killing the driver, 32 year old
3:40 pm
joseph santos, and wounding a female passenger. an officer pulling that driver he slammed into to safety. police tonight defending the response. even though the man inside was not the original suspect. >> we believe that footage shows the acts of the officers as doing exactly what we would want them to do stopping. >>reporter: the man they say stole that police cruiser is still on the run. next tonight the arctic blast from the midwest to the northeast. a treacherous commute on illinois highways tonight and in northern michigan cars spinning out on the side of the road. people bundling up. by morning the record shattering cold up and down the east coast. rob marciano outside tonight. with we knew this was coming. >> reporter: we did. that arctic front came through this morning and the temperatures dropping ever since and the winds are blowing and

advisories up. northern new england blustery out there and freeze warning down into south carolina. detroit, chicago your record lows last night. these numbers are mid january. records will easily fall and of course you couple in the winds, windchills single numbers and teens. many spots saw a record warm october. certainly tonight we're paying the price. david. get back inside. rob, thanks. overseas tonight president trump at a trade conference in vietnam where he was expected to meet with russia's vladimir putin. sporting a new look. talking tough on trade. as for that meeting with putin, just a handshake. the white house press secretary saying there will be no one on one meeting. when it comes to the russia investigation, the trump campaign adviser who pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi, we're learning his explanation for lying. here's brian ross. >> reporter: this campaign picture, and donald trump's own
3:42 pm
words left no doubt that george papadopoulos was part of the trump foreign policy team, the table for this meeting. >> george papadopoulos, excellent guy. >> reporter: but once papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about his contacts with russia, it was a different story from the president. >> i don't remember much about that meeting, it was a very unimportant meeting. took place a long time. don't remember much about it. >> reporter: a presidential tweet called papadopoulos a low level volunteer. >> what papadopoulos did was lie, and that's on him, not on the campaign. >> reporter: now, a person with direct knowledge of the russia investigation, says the president's words have upset george papadopoulos. that he was only trying to be loyal to donald trump when he lied to the fbi, not wanting to contradict what the president had already said about campaign contacts with russia. >> it's all fake news. it's phony stuff. it didn't happen. >> reporter: papadopoulos tried to stick to the official line, telling fbi agents, that his contacts with russia "occurred before" he joined the trump campaign.
3:43 pm
that was not true. it was only after he joined the campaign that he was contacted by russians, offering "dirt" on hillary clinton and tried to arrange meetings between trump and russian president putin. democrats say the president's effort to distance himself from papadopoulos raises its own questions. >> you're a senior foreign policy adviser until you do something that exposes the connections of the campaign. >> brian, important to point out that george papadopoulos not only pleaded guilty to lying but now cooperating with robert mueller. >> clear the comments are not sitting well with him and he is poisoned to be a key witness in this investigation. brian, thank you. next this evening we turn to the new video and the very close call the san francisco airport. air prask controllers six times to abort the landing, to go around. there was concern that there was another plane with passengers on that very runway.
