5:32 am
some folks especially up into the foothills and along highway 93. the fog is a problem. just a touch north and west of where dayle is. just be careful up that way. a lot of green up there including to the north side of town. a little yellow transitioning from i 26 to i-25. south side of town whether it's c470 the denver tech center running clear. we still have this section of i- 70 closed down. there is no estimate of when the rock slide will be cleaned up. a detour is 3-4 hours going through craig and steam boat and back toward i-70. so it might be worth it to have a long breakfast and wait for i- 70 to reopen. 5:32 now. a pipe burst under streets. this happened in the boulder neighborhood waiting for the road to buckle. it sent thousands of gallons off water into homes.
5:33 am
grrenauer is joining us live from the scene with the latest. jason. >> reporter: and as you can imagine, mitch, if you introduced thousands of gallons into a neighborhood ssreee, it will leave behind a little bit of stuff i guess you could say on the road. definitely debris and road. this is is some of the landscaping along the road. you can still see it's wet. just washed out as that water came through. we have video of thh water itself rushing through this neighborhood. again we're in north boulder. a few inches at times after that water main burst sometime early yesterday evening. it took crews hours to come through and actually have to they had to shut the water off and you can see ttis is the hole that is left. we still don't have any official cause as of yet from boulder public works but it appears everything from the scene being calm, the road being open, that everything has been taken care of. jason gruenauer denver 7. >> thank you. 5:33 now.

5:35 am
he is that surgical tech blamed for a health scare. % now people want to know how he got hired in the first place. rocky allen is his name. he is accused of swapping out medical syringes, putting thousands of patients at risk. this is not the correct video. before coming to denver he was fired from an arizona hospital. now investigators are currently looking for allen. now let's get to that report about peyton manning accusing the quarterback of inappropriaae behavior while at the university of tennessee. the trainer that made those allegations 19 years ago settled with him but it's all coming back to light after manning was mentioned this in a recenn lawsuit about how the university of tennessee over all handlee reports of sexual assault. we spoke to the sports columnist who wrote a column about all of this way back in 2003.
5:36 am
plain sight for months. for years actually. we're looking at a squeaky clean guy and i think also the shock value then is more than it would be if someone didn't have the reputation of peyton manning. so in many ways i think he is harmed here by is stellar reputatiin. >> we reached out to the broncos. the team is not talking about this. the university of tennessee says it puts a stop to the students breaking the rules. right now police in denver are looking for the erson or people who poured red paint on the fallen officers memorial in denver. this isn't the first time it's happened. >> lindsay watts is joining us from the memorial. this was exactly a year ago when the same thing occurred. >> it was february 14th when the memorial was vandalized last year. this time around it was february 15th so no coincidence there. it seems like this was planned by people who are antipolice. they did not win, though.
5:37 am
that red paint was able to be washed off. we got here yesterday just as officers and firefighters had finished cleaning up. the vandalism happened around the same time yesterday morning. it was in thh over night to early morning hours. this is what officers discoveeed when they came in yesterday. the memorial looked the same last year when two guys protesting police shootings defaced it. here is chief robert white. >> i really felt sick. that memorial really represents men nd women who have given their lives to defend this community. and to deface it is a dishhnor to those innividuals. >> reporter: police haven't released any photos or surveillance videos but you can bet they do have something capturing whoever did this. there are a multiple of surveillance cameras all around this plaza. this is actually one of our
