    A man was tasered in the face and stabbed three times in the back during a fight in Rolando Park early Sunday morning, according to the San Diego Police Department.

    Two brothers went to visit their girlfriends and ended up in an altercation with another group of men and women, police said.

    The men and the other group then began to fight shortly after 1 a.m. near Newsome Drive, according to SDPD.

    This is when one of the brothers was tasered in the face by a woman, officers said. He was then stabbed in the back three times by an unidentified person.

    The 22-year-old man was taken to a nearby hospital. He did not have life-threatening injuries, SDPD said.

    A 10-week construction project on Interstate 5 to extend carpool lanes began Sunday.

    The lane additions will span from Manchester Avenue in Encinitas to Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad in both directions.

    Concrete barriers will be placed in the area for about 18 months after the project is done, according to the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG).

    The work will occur from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Sundays to Thursdays, excluding holidays.

    From Dec. 2 to Dec. 17, the freeway striping along the road in both directions will be removed.

    From Dec. 11 to Dec. 20, I-5 will be restriped.

    From Dec. 18 and into early February, concrete barriers will be placed alongside the roadways. During this time, partial lane closures may be enacted by officials.

    Nearby residents and businesses may notice noise, dust, and lights from the project, SANDAG said.

    Officials said the night work will last eight to 10 weeks.

    The project is a collaborative effort between SANDAG, Caltrans, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.

    The American people aren't the only ones mourning the loss of former President George H.W. Bush.

    Sunday night, the Bush family's spokesman, Jim McGrath, tweeted a photo of Bush's service dog, Sully, lying in front of the 41st president's casket with the caption "Mission complete."

    Sully was assigned to Bush in June -- specifically matched with the president to provide support in his daily activities, according to America's VetDogs, an organization that helps match service dogs with veterans, active-duty service members and first responders with disabilities.

    The 2-year-old Labrador retriever was even with Bush when he voted in the November midterm election.

    Now, Sully will go back to America's VetDogs on Long Island, where he will stay through the holidays, before he is assigned to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program in Bethesda, Maryland.

    Sully will work with other dogs to help with physical and occupational therapy for wounded soldiers and active duty personnel at the hospital.

    The president and CEO of America's VetDogs, John Miller, issued a statement on the death of President George H.W. Bush.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bush family during this difficult time. It was truly an honor to have provided service dog Sully to be by the president’s side for the past several months. As a true patriot and a visionary, President Bush will forever be viewed by people with disabilities and their families as a hero through his efforts to enact the Americans with Disabilities Act. We are forever grateful to his service to the American people."

    For the first time in both schools’ history, No. 17 Utah will face No. 22 Northwestern in the Holiday Bowl at SDCCU Stadium on New Year’s Eve.

    The match-up was announced at Harbor Island on Sunday. This is the first time the Holiday Bowl has been played on New Year’s Eve.

    The last time the Utes (9-4, Pacific 12) faced the Wildcats (8-5, Big Ten) was in 1981, where Utah blanked Northwestern 42-0.

    Since 2014, the Holiday Bowl has matched teams from the Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences.

    The bowl gets the second selection from the Pac-12 after the New Year’s Six bowls made their selections. The Alamo Bowl picked Washington State after it won the Pac-12 Championship over Utah.

    Northwestern won the Big Ten West before losing to Ohio State in the conference championship game, 45-24. The Wildcats have made nine bowl appearances in the last 11 seasons and 15th overall.

    This is the Utes’ 13th bowl appearance under coach Kyle Whittingham and 22nd bowl game overall.

    Holiday Bowl, which has played annually since 1978, kicks off at 4 p.m.

    Since 1971 the Chargers had played 15 regular season games in Pittsburgh. They lost 14 of them. Their only win came on their last trip to West Pennsylvania back in 2012.

    The Bolts winning streak is now at two.

    The Chargers won again on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, taking out the Steelers 33-30. 

    This was the Bolts’ opportunity to show that their 8-3 start was not a fluke and they are, indeed, among the AFC’s elite teams. Despite not having running back Melvin Gordon they were able to do just that. 

    On their opening drive Chargers kicker Michael Badgley missed a 52-yard field goal and it took the Steelers just four plays to score. Ben Roethlisberger hit wide receiver Antonio Brown for a 47 yard gain to the 1-yard line and James Conner punches it in for a 7-0 lead. Conner scores from the one on their next drive (the extra point was no good) and it was 13-0 but a missed call from the officials helped the Chargers stay in it.

    Right tackle Sam Tevi obviously moved before the ball was snapped but no false start was called. Rivers used the play to hit Travis Benjamin for a 46-yard TD to cut the lead to 13-7. The Bolts did not score again in the half while the Steelers padded their lead. 

    A field goal and a 28-yard TD pass from Roethlisberger to Brown with 17 seconds left put the Steelers on top 23-7 at the break.

    Credit the Chargers, they came back in a big way with a little more luck. Rivers threw one right to Steelers corner Joe Haden but he was blasted by his own teammate, the ball popped straight up and Keenan Allen caught it for a 10-yard touchdown. Rivers found Antonio Gates for the 2-point conversion to make it a 23-15 game.

    A Joey Bosa sack set up a Pittsburgh punt and Desmond King redeemed the special teams unit with a punt return touchdown. Rivers hit Allen for another 2-point conversion to tie it 23-23 and the Bolts had all the momentum.

    They used it to score again, this time on an 18-yard run by third-string running back Justin Jackson that put the Chargers on top 30-33, their first lead of the night coming with eight minutes to play in the game.

    The Steelers marched right back down the field and scored on a Roethlisberger pass to Jaylen Samuels to tie it 30-30 and set up Rivers and the offense to put together a season-defining drive.

    On third-and-5 from the 35, Rivers hit Allen again to get into comfortable field goal range. Two running plays made the Steelers use up their remaining timeouts and Badgley’s 38-yard try on the final play of regulation. He missed. But Pittsburgh was caught offsides so he got another chance from 33 yards away.

    This time it was blocked but the Steelers were called for another penalty so Badgley got a third shot and finally, it went through. The Chargers improve to 9-3 and stay a game behind the Chiefs in the AFC West.

    The North County Fire District has taken on a much heavier load of emergency calls following the closure of the Fallbrook Hospital in 2015.

    In response, NCFD added an extra ambulance to respond to medical emergencies, but it has put a financial strain on the fire stations. 

    As the NCFD puts it, they are bringing a hospital the home of patients.

    “We have the ability to bring medications, life-saving medications to them in their time of need,” NCFD spokesman John Choi said.

    The district serves approximately 55,000 people in Fallbrook, Bonsall and Rainbow. 

    When NCFD started operating its third ambulance, there was no extra money in the budget for it. Most of its budget comes from property taxes.

    NCFD said it has seen a 17 percent increase in calls since Fallbrook Hospital shut its doors. That also means that ambulances are having to travel further to transport patients.

    “Our general public has not seen the true impact of a hospital closure because we’ve been providing this emergency service," Choi said. "But for us internally, we’ve had to move around money.” 

    Because NCFD has shifted money, it hasn't been able to make the necessary upgrades to its fire stations.

    Some NCFD buildings are not up to California Earthquake Standards, meaning that some of the fire station doors might not open during a large earthquake.

    “We have seven out of 11 fire stations that are end-of-life, and four of those stations are greater than 50 years of age,” Choi said.

    Even though crews are on the road longer, and working in outdated facilities, the NCFD remains dedicated to responding to their community’s needs, the agency said.

    “Everything is catching fire around us,” Cynthia Santana said. “We finally start moving and found the fire had crossed the road nobody could get out.”

    Santana was reliving the frantic escape from a deadly wildfire in Northern California. She grew up in the South Bay and lost almost everything in the fire.

    On Sunday, her high school classmates came together to help her and six other families to recover from the worst fire in California’s history.

    Almost 14,000 homes were destroyed in the Camp Fire in Paradise; seven of those homes belong to graduates of Chula Vista High School.

    Rhys Ahrenstein, the student body president class of ’88, organized the fundraiser that was held at Diamond Jim’s Nightclub. He was hoping to raise $30,000 to help former classmates with the devastating losses.

    “My hope is that with the money each family will just have a great Christmas,” he said. “If they want to get out of town go on vacation because things were tough — go on vacation. Just use that money to make themselves feel a little happier, especially during the holiday times.”

    Santana, the class of ’87, said she’s grateful for the outpouring of hometown support.

    “I am feeling completely overwhelmed, loved, blessed that so many people that I grew up can still be involved in my life,” she said. “I’m ecstatic about it.”

    Touched by the support, Santana said the day the Camp Fire broke out, she thought she smelled smoke. Her husband went outside to check it out, rushed back in and said the house next door was on fire.

    They packed their animals and a few belongings into their two cars but Santana lost track of her husband in the chaos and everything around her was catching fire.

    “I was getting embers falling all over my car and I kept using windshield wipers to get my car wet,” she said. “And we just kept driving as fast as we can because it was so smoky we couldn’t see anything. We finally saw daylight after 20 minutes of driving and knew that we were safe.”

    Santana found her husband a little later. He had a woman and five dogs in his car who needed help getting out.

    There were two other classmates who lost their homes to the conflagration. Rick Kane, class of '86, raced home just in time to rescue his son and his in-laws but lost everything, including the family dog.

    Andy Nodzak, class of '85, was able to save his nine pets but little else.

    Ahrenstein has also set up a GoFundMe to help his former classmates.

    Last Sunday’s five-hour border closure caused more than $5.3 million in losses for businesses near the border but uncertainties over the border are affecting tourism to south of the border.

    West Barba’s livelihood is dependent on the border. He runs Baja Border Tours, which takes tourists from San Diego on sight-seeing trips to Baja California, including Tijuana, Rosarito and Puerto Nuevo.

    Barba said he usually takes about 10-12 people across the border for wine and ocean tours after the border shut down, he started getting cancellations.

    The winter season is one the busiest seasons for him, now, there are days when he said he has no one or just two customers scheduled on his tour.

    “Anywhere from November, December and January just work, work, work,” he said. “And it’s just not busy this year.”

    A lot of customers are canceling their reservations because of last week’s border closure and President Trump’s constant threats of closing the southern border because of the migrant caravan crisis.

    “I had a lot of reservations already but people started canceling,” he said. “They started calling to tell me, ‘What’s happening at the border, we don’t want to go.’”

    Images of long lines getting back into the United States after the closure scared his customers. He showed NBC 7 his booking calendar and they are filled with cancellations. He is getting worried.

    “I have a lot of bills,” he said. “It’s December, I was expecting a lot of customers for this season.”

    Barba doesn’t blame the migrants for his lost businesses. He sympathizes with them. Originally from Colombia, he left for a better life in the U.S. and said he hopes the migrants follow proper asylum procedure.

    “I came to this country with $22 in my pocket and the United States is good to me,” he said.

    Indicted U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter is expected to appear in a San Diego courtroom Monday for the first time since his re-election last month.

    Hunter and his wife, Margaret Hunter who served as his campaign chair, are accused of misusing more than $250,000 in campaign funds and trying to disguise the illegal spending in federal records.

    Prosecutors allege the couple spent campaign contributions on personal items ranging from trips to Hawaii and Italy, dental work, fast food purchases, golf outings and theater tickets as well as school tuition.

    A 48-page federal indictment depicts the couple as binge spenders who used money intended for campaign purposes on personal expenses over eight years. Meanwhile, their own personal budget was in the red.

    Rep. Hunter said he has done nothing wrong and blames the federal charges on “leftists” who wanted to strip him of his seat in Congress.

    The congressman has said he repaid the campaign about $60,000 prior to the indictment.

    Margaret Hunter has entered a not guilty plea and has not spoken publicly about the indictment.

    Despite the indictment, Hunter was re-elected to his seat in the 50th Congressional District in November. It will be his sixth term representing one of California’s most conservative districts.


    U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter spoke with NBC 7 in August 2018 after the indictment against him and his wife, Margaret Hunter, was filed.U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter spoke with NBC 7 in August 2018 after the indictment against him and his wife, Margaret Hunter, was filed.

    Video showing students sitting on the ground in an overcrowded Grossmont Union High School District school bus sparked outrage from parents and prompted the district to make changes to their procedures as a response.

    The video shared with NBC 7 showed students packed in a school bus aisle traveling from Granite Hills High School with some sitting three to a seat and others sitting on the floor. At one point, a student hops over another to move within the cabin.

    "My daughter told me she had to ride on the floor of the bus because there wasn’t enough room on the bus for her to have a seat," said Gena Mclaughlin, who is the parent of a Granite Hills High School student. "There’s how many kids on these busses that could all be injured? This is my baby I don’t want anything to happen to her."

    NBC 7 sent a photo of the overcrowded bus to GUHSD who said the video showed, "Clear evidence of a breakdown" in safety procedures and that action would be taken. 

    "This photo is clear evidence of a breakdown in our safety procedures and driver protocols. We have swiftly acted to add another bus to this route to ensure student safety. We do not condone any employee behavior that puts students at risk," a statement from the district read. 

    The district said they also have begun retraining staff to review proper safety compliance and procedures.

    Mclaughlin is upset that the district allowed the overcrowding to happen in the first place. 

    "It’s sad that it takes a parent to make you be accountable when you should have been accountable from the beginning because you were entrusted with our children."

    Jenna Bush Hager paid tribute to her late "Gampy," former President George H.W. Bush, in a touching open letter — her grandfather’s favorite form of communication.

    In a pre-recorded segment, Hager Bush read her “love letter” to her grandfather on the "Today" show Monday, which was accompanied by a video tribute that included past interviews, never-before-seen family videos and memories shared by those who knew him best.

    “My grandfather wrote letters all his life, to his children, his wife, friends and even political rivals,” Bush Hager said. "He often wrote about love and family. For me, his words have always been a precious gift. All the more so now. It's my turn to write my love letter to my Gampy."

    Family was the most important thing in Bush’s life, Hager Bush wrote in her letter, crediting her grandfather with always making each family member feel adored regardless of "whatever demands were placed on him in his professional life."

    Her twin sister Barbara Bush echoed that sentiment: "I’m sure that every one of his grandchildren thinks he loves them the most, he just always makes every person feel so special."

    The dog-friendly seaside park in Ocean Beach welcomed more than two- and four-legged friends over the weekend.

    An octopus was spotted in shallow waters along the beach Sunday. A dog owner captured video of the cephalopod feet from the water’s edge.

    In the video shared by Dana Walker, a curious dog approaches the octopus but someone stops the pooch from getting too close. 

    A San Diego Fire-Rescue lifeguard said octopi sightings are common at San Diego beaches but typically they gather in tide pools. It’s a rare sight to see octopi along the shore.

    Students at Franklin Elementary School STEAM Magnet in the Kensington neighborhood of San Diego were treated to a super surprise Monday for having good attendance records.

    The school's assembly was interrupted by more than a dozen superheroes who announced Franklin Elementary's students had the best attendance record across more than a dozen schools within a program aimed at getting fewer students to miss school. 

    Students were first greeted to high-fives from the superheroes, dressed-up volunteers from neighboring businesses, as they walked into school on Monday. 

    The initiative called "Every Student, Every Day" is a partnership between United Way of San Diego County and 16 schools within the San Diego Unified and Lemon Grove school districts.

    A tenth of San Diego County students missed a month or more of school during the 2017-18 school year, which leads to higher drop out rates,  according to United Way.

    The initiative, which began in 2015, targets at-risk kindergarten to third graders and provides support to their families to get students to school regularly. It also hosts school-wide awareness activities like the one at Franklin Elementary. 

    The non-profit United Way focuses on three factors to target chronic absenteeism: flagging students with early warning signs, pairing young students with a support staff, and creating school-wide events that engage young students. 

    Support staff are typically college interns who connect at-risk students with community services like counseling, housing assistance, food pantries, healthcare providers and transportation. 

    The initiative last year reduced truant students absences by 6 to 7 days, according to United Way.

    A body has been found on the property in Costa Rica where a missing woman from Miami Beach had been staying, authorities said Monday.

    The body was found in the back of the Airbnb property where Carla Stefaniak had been staying, officials with Costa Rica's Judicial Investigation Department said.

    Officials haven't confirmed that the body is Stefaniak but said it is a woman. They said the body had been half buried with plastic bags over it and was discovered by canines in a wooded area.

    Stefaniak has been missing for nearly a week after not returning from a vacation in Costa Rica. She was scheduled to return home last Wednesday, but has not been heard from since speaking with her family late Tuesday night.

    The 36-year-old who lives in Miami Beach was on a trip with her sister-in-law for Stefaniak’s birthday. Her sister-in-law returned to the United States on Tuesday.

    Stefaniak’s brother, Mario Caicedo, drove from Orlando to Miami to speak with FBI agents on the case while other family members have flown to Costa Rica to help in the search.

    Mario Caicedo told NBC 6 sister station Telemundo 51 that investigators in Costa Rica believe Stefaniak was kidnapped because she checked in for her flight but never boarded. FBI officials have not confirmed that information.

    Stefaniak's father, Carlos Caicedo, was traveling to Costa Rica on Monday. He also believed she had been kidnapped.

    "She is kidnapped over there, not disappeared. She was kidnapped," he told Telemundo 51.

    Stefaniak, who last posted on her social media page Monday, was staying in San Jose at the time, at the Airbnb Villa Buena Vista.


    This still from video provided by her sister-in-law shows Carla Stefaniak while on vacation in Costa Rica. Stefaniak failed to return to the U.S. as scheduled and was considered missing after nearly a week had passed without any word from her. Family members from Florida traveled to Costa Rica to help officials in their search.This still from video provided by her sister-in-law shows Carla Stefaniak while on vacation in Costa Rica.

    Beautiful Capistrano Beach has seemingly always been a tourist attraction in Orange County, but now, it's garnering attention for a different reason.

    A recent storm caused heavy beach erosion on the coastline, leaving behind a battered wooden walkway, a basketball court surrounded by caution tape, broken slabs of concrete and wilting palm trees.

    Orange County resident Cindi Aldereti took pictures of what almost looks like wreckage from a ship.

    "The boardwalk is falling into the sea," she said.

    Heavy rain and high tides punched the shore, bending the stairway and twisting light poles along Beach Road.

    "There's a storm this week, and it didn't surprise me that the surf is big; I just didn't expect it to do something like this," said Erik Bryner, a surfer at Dana Point. "Obviously mother nature is up in turmoil."

    A Florida business’s surveillance camera captured video footage of a small plane exploding into a fireball after it crashed into a building housing a therapy center for children with autism in Fort Lauderdale over the weekend.

    Two people on board the plane were killed in Saturday’s crash.

    The Cessna 335 had taken off from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport Saturday afternoon when, moments later, the plane crashed into a building in the 1000 block of Northwest 62nd Street.

    Video footage from nearby H & J Electronics International Inc. shows the plane skidding across the parking lot, trailed by heavy smoke, and then erupting into flames upon impact.

    Several people, including children, could be seen running out of the building. There were eight adults and five children inside the center at the time of the crash but none were injured.

    Officials haven't released the identities of the two who were on the plane. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the incident.
