5:02 am
the bay bridge. >> this is the question people have been asking. is it a crime to eat while waiting for a train? a man was cited for eating food on a b.a.r.t. platform and now is suing the transit agency. bob redell's live for us in the east bay. what is his legal argument? >> reporter: marcus, steve foster, the man cited for eating on a b.a.r.t. platform, believes he was racially profiled. later this afternoon the attorney he hired, john burris, will hold a news conference to announce that he is filing a lawsuit against b.a.r.t. foster was stopped for eating a sandwich while eating, was restrained. it is against state law to eat at b.a.r.t. stations and on b.a.r.t. trains. in a video we can see the officer hold on to foster's backpack and repeatedly ask him for identification.
5:03 am
foster refused. he was briefly detained. cited and released. now his attorney, john burris, did release the statement and you can look at it on your tv screen. these b.a.r.t. officers engaged in racial profiling and selective law enforcement in that b.a.r.t. patrons routinely eat sandwiches and other food on the platform and b.a.r.t. trains without any law enforcement intervention, chastisement or other admonishments by police. >> people need to eat. i want to go all the time. all the time. so i have food and if i need something to he's, they have a star right downstairs for people to eat. it's contradiction. it's not the only b.a.r.t. that has a food station right outside the fare gates. >> reporter: foster says it's hypocritical to rent out food kiosks and still expect people not to eat and drink on the
5:04 am
train. b.a.r.t. says foster was combative and refused to provide his name necessary for the citation. that being said b.a.r.t.'s general manager did issue an apology which foster has said he does not accept. reporting live, bob redell, "today in the bay." thanks for the latest there, bop. >> something people will be talking about and think twice before eating on the platform. vice president mike pence spending the morning at nasa ames research center talking about the next mission to the moon. kris sanchez joins us where we expect to probably see some protesters outside of those gates as well, kris. >> reporter: yeah, definitely a lot of folks will be here. the welcome sign, welcome vice president mike pence. he arrived here at moffitt field in mountain view just before

5:15 am
performer. looks like the impeachment hearings in this video but this is federal chairman jay powell in a different room. he talks to congress again today. powell saying he's comfortable with the going interest rates. doesn't see a reason to lower them further. president trump wants powell to lower rates because it injects more money into the economy and sparks more growth. it also lowers borrowing costs and the government borrows a lot of money. this is a very deficit heavy administration. the latest figures, these are all in trillions for you. the government brought in $3.4 trillion in the fiscal year but it spent $4.4 trillion for a budget deficit of $1 trillion. this is not the national debt. that's in trillions upon trillions. this is how much we fell short in the year's budget. how about a $1,500 phone? motorola is bringing back the

5:17 am
oh, mcgrew. okay. i wish i could tell this funny story he always tells but we don't have time right now. families receiving benefits may receive a fremontly supply of diapers. the city's human service agency announced it's expanding the program. available for residents with children under 3 years old. the move will make san francisco the first country in the nation to provide free diapers. that's huge. ro a tax measure is one step closer to the ballot. as soon as next week. supervisors may agree to put it on the march ballot. it would tax them for storefront beginning in the year 2021. first the building would have to be vacant for at least half a year. supporters say the tax would provide landlords incentive to lease the empty spaces.
5:18 am
a russian man smuggling his fat cat, big cat on to a plane is being stripped of frequent flier status. >> he let the cat out of the bag, in a manner of speaking. he found out his cat weighed too much to fly in the cabin. he postponed the trip and spent the night with friends who had a much smaller cat. so the next day he checked in but with his friend's cat. and then later did the old switcharoo. he would have gotten away with it but he posted the ruse on social media. that's when the airline got wind of it. leaving him stranded with the cat bird seat. i can't believe he tried to do that. >> i know. >> how surprising. >> why didn't he wait until after the flight to post it on social media? >> why post it at all? >> you know, people like to share. >> not when you're doing something you're not supposed to. come on, folks.

5:20 am
we are going to see more clouds moving in and cooler temperatures and also some breezy winds. we see the cold front moving through and see the wind shift and turn northerly once again making it warm up and also keep our weather very dry and then going into next week an area of low pressure moving in, by tuesday close enough it could bring in some rain to our north and then it looks like it skips to the south of us. we hope we'll see a couple showers out of that by the middle of next week as much cooler temperatures arrive again. a look at our temperature trend. that roller coaster, upper 60s today riding up to 76 degrees in the weekend peaking on mon dap monday. san francisco will have some upper 50s for the next couple of days. and, mike, you've been tracking

president and next week a full slate of government employees and diplomats. on wednesday we saw two long time civil servants testify, top trump adviser george kent and acting u.s. ambassador to ukraine bill taylor. in their opening statements they said they were not there to take sides, they were there to tell the truth. much of what we heard were things we had already known though taylor did add something new, he talked about a conversation he says one of his staff overheard between the president and gordon sondland talking about the president's desire that ukraine investigate joe biden's son. now that is one person talking about another person overhearing another person. and you would think the republicans' lawyer would have jumped on that but the republicans' attorney spent far more time on some of the president's conspiracy theories about ukraine than the 2016 election. series the president's close aides have said don't hold up and george kent spent time
5:45 am
