apple told "the washington post" the employee in question is no longer with the company. right now at 6:00 a bite out of b.a.r.t. it's a story that went viral. and this morning the next chapter of the new action a man detained for eating breakfast on a b.a.r.t. platform says he'll take today. crime spree over. people in the south bay may be breathing easier this morning with this man allegedly did from san jose who los altos. and lawsuit pulled. a huge development in the battle over oakland coliseum, what it means for the future of the a's. "today in the bay" continues right now. and a good thursday morning to you. getting the morning started off right. i'm marcus washington. >> and i'm laura garcia. are you putting up the holiday decorations just yet? >> not at all. >> it takes a lot of work to put up christmas in the park in downtown san jose. you may notice something
6:01 am
different, changes that are coming. little elves will still be there but the tree will be different. it's going to be an artificial one. the old trees used to come from the shasta mountains but cost upwards of $20,000. so they have a new tree up. you're going to see it year after year just as you do those little characters. >> that's a good thing. >> i'll be there, same old me to kick off the friday after thanksgiving. join us out there. we count down the tree lighting. >> that's fun, though. >> there will be a parade this year. they're going to bring it back. >> it's always a nice tradition for folks. ice skating in california. >> and it's getting closer to the holidays. let's not forget that. i mean, it's that time and so we are two weeks away from thanksgiving. all right, so let's get out the door this morning with a look at your forecast that will finally feel like fall. we are going to start out in palo alto with some low 50s and then see it rise into the low 60s today, very slow warm yum
6:02 am
and some peeks of sunshine today. we are going to feel some cooler air behind the cold front that rolled through late yesterday evening and so today will be closer to where we should be for normal. mike, you have a traffic alert. >> i do. just before we came on for the last report so i didn't have a special map to show you. waze and the slowing. they also time out an alternate that will save you about 15 minutes if you're coming out of dublin and heading down to 680 and take the avenue here. we have a few routes to time it out. half the time compared to going to that big jam. as you get back to our other system we're showing you traffic flow and the live camera shows you the jam where you only have one lane open. the rest of the bay outside of that tri-valley looks great. back to you. a surprising question a lot of people are asking this week is, is it a crime to eat on a
6:03 am
platform while waiting for a train? >> a man was cited for doing that, but now he's suing b.a.r.t. bob redell joins us live from the east bay this morning. so talk a little bit about the legal basis here. >> reporter: well, laura and marcus, steve foster, the map cited for eating food here at the pleasantville b.a.r.t. station behind me, he believes he was racially profiled. later this afternoon the attorney has hired john burris, will hold a news conference to announce that he has filed a lawsuit against b.a.r.t. you'll recall foster, who is black, was stopped by a white b.a.r.t. police officer for eating a sandwich while waiting for his train. this was on the platform. it is against state law, by the way, to eat at b.a.r.t. stations and on b.a.r.t. trains. in a cell phone video that went viral we can see the officer holding on to foster's back pack, repeatedly asking him for identification. foster refused. he was briefly detained, cited, and then released. his attorney has releaed a
6:04 am
statement, 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. they need to eat. i want to go all the time, all the time. if i have food and i need something to eat, they have a store right downstairs for people that need to eat. it's kind of contradicting and an imbalance. it's not the only b.a.r.t. that has a food station right outside the fare gates. >> reporter: foster said it's hypocritical of b.a.r.t. to rent out food kiosks and still expect people not to eat and drink on the train. b.a.r.t. says foster was combative with the officer who cited him and did refuse to provide his name which is needed
6:05 am
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 here at pleasant hill b.a.r.t., bob redell, "today in the bay." >> that will be one to follow. thanks so much, bob. 6:05. vice president mike pence waking up in the bay area today. he will spend the morning in nasa ames research center talking about the next mission to the move. kris sanchez is live for us. i understand we're also expecting some protesters this morning. >> reporter: we expect the protesters will gather just about where we are this morning outside the gates. our reporter will of course be inside the gates with vice president mike pence. you can see the sign is illuminated there. welcoming the vice president. now he landed here moffitt field and was greeted by supporters, about 75 of them. some of whom wereyears. our reporter tried to ask about the impeachment proceeding under
6:06 am
way in washington but got no response. >> mr. vice president, what do you think of the impeachment hearings today, sir? >> reporter: just before noon today the vice president will talk to about 200 employees about returning astronauts to the moon in the coming years. during his two-day california trip pence meant with trump victory events, a luncheon down in huntington beach and a dinner in monterey. both of those were closed to the media but we understand that tickets to those events ranged in price from $1,000 to $35,000. several protester groups tell us they are going to gather out here to senhed t vice president rolls on through. he will be leaving from move moffett field. >> the city is dropping its lawsuit against the a's.
6:07 am
they want to buy the land where it sits. the city and county would receive $85 million for its share of the coliseum land which the a's want to redevelop. the suit not only puts that deal in limbo, it also puts plans for a new a's stadium at howard terminal. a's president release add statement which says in part the team is committed to the coliseum site's long-term success. new overnight, a family rushes out of their peninsula homes as flames destroyed their garage. take a look at it there. it happened a little after midnight on north kingston street in san mateo. firefighters kept the flames from spreading to other homes. no one was hurt. still no word on a cause for the fire. and new, a suspected carjacker is in custody. this is after a stolen truck he was in crashed in the south bay. police in san jose say they
6:08 am
arrested sanchez tuesday night. they say first he stole a lottery ticket from a gas station on north 13th street. then two days later on rebecca way he carjacked a woman's jose police uniforms inside. the vehicle was recovered. then on tuesday night police arrested him in los altos after a stolen truck he was driving crashed. he is now in the hospital. officers also arrested a woman who was a passenger in that truck that crashed. police say many if not all of the pd uniforms have been recovered. 6:08 right now. several a-list movie stars set to converge on the north bay tonight. actors kevin bacon, vanessa hutchins and bell will be honored at the napa valley film festival. the triblt program highlights artist who is have a passion for cinema and story telling. a separate ceremony honoring actress olivia wild is scheduled for tomorrow. the festival wraps up on sunday.

6:10 am
b.a.r.t. is an alternate. putting that into context it's right here. the rest of the bay looks great. west 580 is jammed up as you come in. a lot of folks will probably choose to take 84 even back tracking a bit as that will get you out of the backup. still only onee680. 680 coming through concord is fine, a little slowing and of course the bay bridge toll plaza has a backup. back to you. >> thank you, mike. today we're going to learn more about one "jeopardy" contestant alex trebek triblt. a story that went viral. what he's telling ellen about the moment that brought the longtime host to tears. a new phone is heading to market. the return of the flip phone. we'll show it to you when "today in the bay" continues. don't miss the grand opening
