swarmed in to make the arrest.... they then turned their attention to platinum kutz... searching the building with guns drawn just in case another suspect was inside... police haven't released the man's name... and say at a minimum he'll be charged with discharging a firearm within city limits. des moines police also arrested a pair of armed suspects overnight... they say the two men attempted to break into a home on park avenue. the homeowner called police... and as officers pulled up.. they say the two men drove away. that led to a chase that hit 70-miles per hour and ended when the suspect crashed into a ditch near 63rd and park. 'the suspects tried to run from the car but not a wise move with the fresh snow, it was easy to follow their tracks we had them in custody in a matter of minutes. 31 year old zeferino padilla and 33 year old felipe padilla are charged with felon in possession of a firearm and attempted burglary. a substitute teacher is facing
10:04 pm
police removed the sub from a junior high classroom in iowa city, thursday morning. they did that based on complaints from students that the teacher was drunk. the substitute's name isn't being released because he wasn't charged with a crime. jim pedersen with the iowa city school district tells the cedar rapids gazette, "the teacher will be excluded from subbing in our district. i'm not going to say forever. he will be excluded from subbing." who agrees with president obama more... the two democratic presidential candidates battled over that exact issue last night... joe johns has more as the two return to the campaign trail. hillary clinton pitching south carolina voters today on why she is best suited to be the democratic nominee. presidential candidate"i'm going to go after every single barrier that stands in the way of what americans can do." the clinton campaign is hoping the palmetto state can help slow bernie sanders' momentum
10:05 pm
win on tuesday. presidential candidate"thank you new hampshire." the fight for the first-in-the-south primary will likely hinge on support from african-american voters - who make up over half the democratic electorate in the state. clinton lost african-americans in south carolina to president obama by nearly 60 points in 2008. "thank you south carolina." with the president still held in high regard by african americans and democrats nationwide -- both candidates are working hard show their support for him -- including in thursday night's debate in milwaukee. presidential candidate"president obama and i are friends." presidential candidate"i think president obama has set a great example." clinton is trying to drive a wedge between sanders and president obama presidential candidate"the kind of criticism that we've heard from senator sanders about our president i expect from republicans. i do not expect from someone running for the democratic nomination to

presidential candidate"madam secretary that is a low blow." with sanders returning the favor... presidential candidate"one of us ran against barack obama. i was not that candidate." sanders also targeting clinton over wall street contributions to her super pac ... presidential candidate"15 million dollars from wall street." an attack clinton rebutted by noting president obama's super pac also took money from wall street in 2008 -- but that did not influence his decision-making as president. presidential candidate"let's not in any way imply here that either president obama or myself, would in any way not take on any vested interests, whether it's wall street, or drug companies, or insurance to let clinton off the hook. presidential candidate"people does wall street make huge campaign the fun of it; they want to throw money around." when it comes to reining in wall

share a similar view - but that her agenda goes beyond that one issue. presidential candidate"i am not a single-issue candidate, and i do not believe we live in a single-issue country." as the candidates prepare for the nevada caucuses.... move-on-dot-org is trying to change how the democratic party picks its nominee... under the current system.. a candidate with the least amount of votes can still become the nominee... and this is why... in new hampshire.. senator bernie sanders received 56-thousand more votes than hillary clinton.... yet you can still call it it tie. that's because the state's six super delegates have pledged their support to hillary clinton... giving them 15 a piece. superdelegates are made up of democratic elected officials and party insiders.... and you can see they overwhelmingly support clinton. she has a 350-delegate advantage despite splitting the first two nominating contests. candidates need the support of nearly 24-hundred total
