Video Transcript


- Here's a look at the 4 Things You Need to Know for today. Number one, trespassing charges against a Minnesotan after the January 6 Capitol attack. The FBI arrested 31-year-old Jordan Stotts from Moorhead. Security camera footage from Capitol Police shows Stotts inside the Capitol rotunda area. He made his first court appearance in Bemidji yesterday and was released on a $25,000 bond.

- Number two, jury selection nearly over in the trial of Derek Chauvin. It will continue Monday with 13 jurors already now seated. Only one more is needed, but Judge Peter Cahill said they'll choose two more jurors to make sure there are 14 when opening arguments start later this month. The judge also decided the trial will stay in Minneapolis and will not be delayed.

- Number three, it could be pretty quiet in the stands during the upcoming Olympics in Tokyo. Spectators from abroad will not be allowed when the games begin in four months. Officials said the risk was too great to admit ticket holders from overseas during a pandemic. About one million tickets are reported to have been sold to fans from outside Japan. Organizers have promised refunds.

- And number 4, is your bracket busted yet? Ours is, more or less. Thanks a lot, Ohio State. There's plenty more chances for that to happen again coming up today with 16 more games set to be played. The first is at 11:15. Georgetown looks to upset Colorado. You can see it right here on WCCO. The women's tournament starts tomorrow.
