than six weeks ago. tuesday police announced they have had more than 500 leads. they believe the attacker may have been wearing an andre ethier dodger jersey. the attack left stow in critical condition and in the last 24 hours stow was transferred to san francisco general hospital. police say the attack lasted less than 30 seconds and they are hoping that someone comes forward with new information. >> we are going to make or break this on a lead. we want to do everything we can so that we can bring justice for this particular crime and closure for the stow family and it is going to be done by your clue. so if you have a clue, call it in. >> i did talk with bryan stow's parents who you see in this picture right behind me. they said that doctors plan on holding a press conference wednesday morning to update everyone on bryan stow's current health condition. for now reporting in the newsroom, j.r. stone, kron 4 news. new tonight at 11 p.m. two passengers booted off a u.s. airways flight because one of them reportedly made a comment about the plane being
late and said it was the airline's fault. the passengers say that's when the flight attendant ordered them to leave the plane. the airline's reaction. a story you will see only here on kron 4. >> reporter: luke hazelwood and his girlfriend didn't meet the airline passenger until after all three boarded a u.s. airways flight at s.f.o. they had no idea what they were about to experience on flight 1496 bound for charlotte, north carolina, would not only unite them but would be an experience they won't soon forget. it all started before they even got on the plane. the flight was running an hour late due to bad weather but hazelwood's girlfriend says they were never told that. >> we kept checking to see if we were boarding. the sign said on time. >> there was a serious panic caused by the flight attendant. >> the way that the flight attendant expressed or blared
over the intercom intercom. >> i said we are boarded an hour late and the flight attendant said what did you say? >> i was appalled seeing that i would look at a flight attendant as someone to be caring. >> i repeated what i said. you boarded us an hour later. you should be accountable. >> mr. hazelwood just expressed his view point that if you weren't an hour later. >> and she said you're gone. you're going home. kicked me off the flight. >> reporter: hazelwood's girlfriend was not kicked off the flight but decided to leave the plane with her boyfriend. >> kicked me off as well just making the point she could have approached the situation very differently. so we have a traveling irate flight attendant from san francisco to charlotte. >> krause was rebooked on another flight. hazelwood and his girlfriend
were also rebooked for the following day. hazelwood says the airline would not compensate him for his hotel room. all u.s. airways is saying about the incident is that the passengers interfered with the flight crew and in the interest of safety they had to be removed. in the newsroom, kron 4 news. so what are a passenger's rights on board a plane? according to passenger rights advocate, a flight attendant can remove you from a plane if they deem you a risk. but the problem is most flight attendants are not trained to know what a risk is. >> flight attendants union has not given specific instructions as far as we know to the flight attendances. we know they have no self- defense training and they have no actual instruction as to how to assess basic risks inside a plane. we do believe they have some terrorist training and some things they are told to look for but these basic behaviors that people have when people express frustration and believe me there is a lot of
frustration with air travel these days, these kind of things are very subjective. don't appear to be any protocols it is just a flight attendant making a subjective determination. could be as simple as somebody has a logo on their sweatshirt that the flight attendant thinks is offensive. people have been arrested for that. >> in fact, she says she is contacted about similar incidents about passengers removed from planes several times a month. new accusations and video of alleged misconduct by sfpd officers. surveillance video from a residential hotel in the city's mission district. the video shows undercover officers entering the building carrying nothing. a man claims after police left his laptop and camera were gone. this is footage of the officers leaving. two are carrying what the public defender says appears to be a backpack and camera bag. these are the same officers accused of crossing the line in
the tenderloin district. he says this tape shows undercover narcotics officers stealing. >> personal items belonging to residents at two different hotels, two different parts of the city were taken. that is theft. that is a crime. that is not allowed under police authority. just because you're a police officer you don't have the right to go into somebody's room and remove personal property and keep it. >> he says none of the items allegedly taken from the hotel was checked into evidence. in response to the accusations, sfpd chief gregg sirr explained what steps the department is taking? >> any officers that were seen in any of these videos, none are in plain clothes as of my speaking. i've got to emphasize. all these officers are innocent until proven guilty. >> sirr said dishonesty will not be tolerated. sirr made those comments
shortly after he and mayor ed lee swore in the department's new command staff today at city hall. we see the video here. city leaders say the command staff is part of a streamlining process which will save more than $1 million in management costs. a bombshell of an admission from former governor arnold schwarzenegger. just a week after separating from his wife maria shriver, arnold schwarzenegger announced he has a secret child with someone close to the family. a look at how the former governor made the announcement and what it may mean to his already rocky marriage just ahead on kron 4 news.
