In some cases, it's three strikes and you're out. That isn't the case for Shaun Goodman after he was arrested for his seventh DUI offense. Goodman was sentenced to one year in jail, but a work release allows him to go home and run his business. That's not sitting well with some in the community, including the passenger in Goodman's Ferrari the night of his most recent crash. He had to jump from the speeding sports car during a high-speed chase with police. Dan Simon has the story.
A group of some 600 retired players are suing the NFL, alleging the league illegally and routinely supplied them with powerful and addictive drugs. They say the drugs were meant to mask pain, conceal injuries and keep them on the field. Jeremy Newberry is one of the players suing the NFL. He told Anderson he took pills and injections before nearly every game. Today he is suffering from kidney failure, which he attributes to the painkillers. But he says he was only warned that they would cause more bruising.
In his exclusive interview with Anderson Cooper, Donald Sterling referred to his wife Shelly as his ex-wife and discussed their upcoming divorce. But while their marriage may be ending, the L.A. Times reports on the NBA investigation that alleges they were working together as a team to try to cover up the now infamous recordings and do damage control after it went public. Randi Kaye has new information on what was allegedly happening behind the scenes during the Sterling scandal.
Anderson discussed the impact these allegations could have on Sterlings' battle with the NBA.
Today President Obama responded directly to allegations of VA hospitals manipulating records to hide alleged deadly delays in care. This is a story that Senior Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin has been reporting on for months, and the details are shocking. Drew spoke with Dr. Kathrine Mitchell, a whistleblower who runs the Phoenix VA's Post-Deployment Clinic. She described vets returning from the battlefield with traumatic injuries and forced to wait for care "six months, nine months or longer." She also told Drew how she saved and hid the alleged fake waiting lists before they could be destroyed.
On Capitol Hill, lawmakers are also taking action. Anderson Cooper and Drew Griffin discussed all of today's developments with Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
In a news conference Tuesday, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said the league is "doing the right thing" by forcing out LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling. This came only one day after the NBA outlined their charges against Sterling and on the same day Sterling's lawyer demanded three months to respond. "The proceedings and the processes set out in our constitution is something they signed on for when they became owners in the league," said Silver. The commissioner expressed confidence in the NBA's ability to force Sterling into selling the franchise, which he has owned since 1981.
