THE LATEST NOW. ON THIS WEEKEND'S TAKEDOWN. OF THE WORLD'S MOST WANTED MAN.

THE MEXICAN DRUG KINGPIN AND BILLIONAIRE KNOWN AS EL CHAPO WAS ARRESTED.

NOW THE U-S WANTS HIM EXTRADITED. TO FACE CHARGES HERE.

ABC'S CHIEF JUSTICE CORRESPONDENT PIERRE THOMAS. HAS THE LATEST INFORMATION. Return to index of stories...


DRUG LORD ARRESTED-PKG


There's no doubt the U.S. will seek to extradite El Chapo because he's

caused so much devastation across this country.

He is the leader of a cartel responsible for 25% of all drugs flowing into

the US---Cocaine, Heroin, Marijuana---the country's top supplier.

80 percent of the drugs in Chicago come from his cartel. There he is public

enemy number one.

VAN ZELLER SOT

18;36;48;45

"he's sometimes called the Osama bin Laden of drug trafficking

Sources tell ABC News El Chapo is responsible for more deaths in the U.S.

than bin Laden himself.

But this morning the drug kingpin is behind bars. Now he faces indictment

not only in Chicago, but also in San Diego, Brooklyn and Texas.

It all ended here in room 401 of the Miramar Hotel as EL CHAPO was

surrounded by Mexican paramilitary. This grainy video shows how they

captured him in a messy hotel room without firing a single shot. He was

snatched, broken door pancake breakfast still on the stove, an indication of

his abrupt departure.

And with that a LEGENDARY villian who had escaped prison 13 years earlier in

a LAUNDRY BASKET---WAS BACK IN CUSTODY.

He had narrowly escaped a week EARLIER-from an undisclosed hideout, slipping

out through this series of underground tunnel as Mexican authorities

engaged in a firefight with cartel members.

Sources say tracking his family's travels and phones calls were key.

It's unclear how much communication -- if any -- he's had RECENTLY with his

wife a former beauty queen. The couple has two US-born children.

Today U.S. law enforcement is calling his arrest a landmark move in the

fight against the cartels.

18;34;22;56

El Chapo is one of the most creative and business-minded drug traffickers

the world has ever seen Return to index of stories...


DRUG LORD ARRESTED-OC


THAT WAS PIERRE THOMAS WITH THAT REPORT.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

"Another warm and humid day"

After the fog lifted, it turned out to be a nice end to the weekend with more sunshine and temperatures in the middle 80s. Our stretch of unseasonably warm weather will continue for the next few days, before another system brings clouds, rain, and a slight dip in the mercury.

Conditions will be just right this morning for another round of patchy fog to develop around sunrise. Visibilities could drop as low as 1/4 of a mile in spots, before conditions begin to improve by mid morning. Partly sunny skies will take us into the afternoon hours with mainly dry weather. A couple of isolated showers will still be possible, however these will favor our interior zones especially near Lake Okeechobee. Afternoon temperatures will continue to run 5-7° above average as they climb into the middle 80s. Beaches and coastal locations will be a few points cooler due to the development of the west coast seabreeze.

Patchy fog will be a good bet once again tonight as humidity stays high and winds remain light. Overnight lows won't drop by much as they settle into the middle to upper 60s.

Due to the heat and the humidity a few stray showers can't be ruled out for Tuesday as highs remain in the lower to middle 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. By mid week, we'll be tracking another weather system that will increase our cloud cover and up our rain chances beginning Wednesday. We'll also see temperatures take a slight dip as they cool into the 70s for daytime highs and the upper 50s for overnight lows. A few widely scattered showers will continue through Friday with a drying trend as we head into next weekend. Return to index of stories...


YELLOW DYE-TRX-OC


THERE'S NEW CONCERNS ABOUT THE POPULAR DYE FOUND IN SO MANY OF THE THINGS WE OWN -- INCLUDING OUR CLOTHING AND PAPER.

A NEW STUDY IS RAISING SERIOUS SAFETY QUESTIONS ABOUT A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS CHEMICAL FOUND IN YELLOW DYE.

ABC'S GIO BENITEZ HAS THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


YELLOW DYE-PKG


IT'S THAT GOLDEN HUE THAT DOMINATES OUR WORLD - YELLOW - THE COLOR WE TURN

TO, TO MAKE US SMILE-

BUT THIS MORNING, A NEW RUTGERS STUDY HAS AT LEAST ONE SCIENTIST SEEING RED

-- SOUNDING THE ALARM ON A POTENTIALLY TROUBLING CHEMICAL USED IN JUST ABOUT

EVERYTHING YELLOW, FROM PAINT, TO CLOTHING, TO TOYS. IT'S CALLED PCB-11.

SOT LISA RODENBURG

21;40;24 Anything that's printed with yellow pigment or yellow ink can have

PCB 11 in it.

PCBs WERE BANNED 35 YEARS AGO -- THE EPA CITES LINKS TO CANCER, AND DAMAGING

EFFECTS ON THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. EVEN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM!

BUT PCB-11 IS CONSIDERED AN UNINTENTIONAL BY-PRODUCT OF PIGMENT

MANUFACTURING-- IT'S NOT REGULATED AS LONG AS THE CONCENTRATIONS AREN'T TOO

HIGH.

IN THE STUDY, ALL YELLOW CLOTHING TESTED HAD PCB-11 -- MOST WERE CHILDREN'S

CLOTHES. ALMOST ALL PAPER WITH YELLOW INK HAD IT TOO.

SOT LISA RODENBURG

21;40;39 Well, PCB 11 is one of the class of compounds called PCBs. and we

know they are toxic. /they can cause a range of different health effects.

THE EPA NOW TELLS ABC NEWS PCB-11 IS "among the large number of PCBs that

are being evaluated."

IN THE MEANTIME, WHAT CAN YOU DO TO AVOID THAT SUNSHINY COLOR IN OTHER

PRODUCTS? THE RESEARCHER SAYS SHE HERSELF WASHES ANY NEW YELLOW CLOTHING FOR

HER KIDS A FEW TIMES IN HOT WATER BEFORE THEY WEAR IT FOR THE FIRST TIME?

SOT LISA RODENBURG

21;41;34 The yellow pigment isn't he worst of the offenders, but there's

PCBs in some of the other pigments as well.

WHEN IT COMES TO YELLOW, SHE SAYS, DON'T LET ITS COLORFUL BRIGHTNESS FOOL

ABC'S LINSEY DAVIS HAS THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


KERRY KENNEDY TRIAL-PKG


As Kerry Kennedy's trial begins this morning, the 54 year old daughter of

Robert Kennedy is hopeful a misdemeanor charge won't hamper her human rights

work. Her driver's license is now on the line after she got into a car

accident back in July of 2012 just north of New York City

SOT-KERRY KENNEDY

"I WANT TO APOLOGIZE TO THE DRIVER OF THE TRUCK WHO I APPARENTLY HIT. AND TO

ALL THOSE I ENDANGERED WHILE DRIVING MY CAR."

She says, the morning of the accident, she may have mistakenly taken Ambien

after confusing it with a thyroid pill.

SOT -- SUSAN CHANA LASK, ATTORNEY

"If she would have taken it the night before/ She would have a better

defense I think, because she took it as prescribed."

Ambien, the nation's top-selling prescription sleeping pill, along with its

generic form, were prescribed nearly 44 million times just in

2012 alone.

SOT -- DR. SHELBY HARRIS, MONTEFIORE MEDICAL CENTER

"The most common side effect we see are people/ having some cognitive

problems where they can't remember things as fast. There are more severe

side effects that we'll see of sleep walking, sleep eating, sleep talking."

In an attempt to experience the affects firsthand, ABC correspondent Lisa

Stark took ambien and then climbed into a driving simulator.

NATS - HER DRIVING

90 minutes in, she side-swipes a couple of parked cars and runs into a semi-

truck.

But the makers of Ambien told ABC NEWS

"The label clearly states Ambien should only be taken immediately before bed

and only when you can get a full night's sleep."

That was not the case for Kennedy, she has pleaded not-guilty, and it's

highly likely that the ex-wife of New York's current Governor, will testify

at some point during her trial. Return to index of stories...

FOLLOWED BY A NEW HOST. ON FALLON'S OLD SHOW, "LATE NIGHT".

"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE"'S SETH MEYERS TAKES OVER.

MARK BARGER HAS A PREVIEW. Return to index of stories...


SETH MEYERS DEBUT-PKG


"This is the job I always wanted and I had the best time and met the best people."

HIS "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" DAYS NOW BEHIND HIM.

"Basically, I'm moving 30 feet"

SETH MEYERS IS MOVING DOWN THE HALL AT 30 ROCK.

"I'm 51 percent excited and 49 percent terrified, which is good though. That's the majority."

"Here are tonight's top stories."

MEYERS IS MAKING THE SAME TRANSITION JIMMY FALLON DID, FROM S-N-L'S "WEEKEND UPDATE" DESK TO HOSTING "LATE NIGHT".

"I would like to present it to you."

SO, FALLON OFFERED ADVICE.

"Mostly just be patient. You know? Commit to your idea of what you want the show to be and don't

over react, over course correct the first couple of night, but you know it's fun. You kind of have to figure out the job by doing it so we're excited to start doing it."

IT'S A LITERAL CHANGE OF PACE FOR MEYERS, GOING FROM ONE SHOW A WEEK TO FIVE.

"You have to generate a lot of material, you get to have a really fun writing staff, and you get to be fluid because of how often you have to do it."

INTERVIEWING IS ALSO PART OF THE HOSTING GIG FOR MEYERS, BUT HE'S GOT FELLOW S-N-L ALUM AMY POEHLER AS HIS FIRST GUEST

"That'll be a nice comfort level for me. She's like one of my oldest friends in show business, and that'll be nice. If that's a bad interview, I would just tune out, because I'm not good at the job."

BUT IT IS A JOB MEYERS IS GETTING A GREAT DEAL ON.

"It's kinda like selling a used car. It's been a good car. I'm gonna give to Seth. I didn't tell him

about the transmission."

"He's got it now, it's not my problem."

FOR MEYERS, THE CHANCE OF BUYER'S REMORSE IS MINIMAL. Return to index of stories...

FORECAST-WX WALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

"Another warm and humid day"

After the fog lifted, it turned out to be a nice end to the weekend with more sunshine and temperatures in the middle 80s. Our stretch of unseasonably warm weather will continue for the next few days, before another system brings clouds, rain, and a slight dip in the mercury.

Conditions will be just right this morning for another round of patchy fog to develop around sunrise. Visibilities could drop as low as 1/4 of a mile in spots, before conditions begin to improve by mid morning. Partly sunny skies will take us into the afternoon hours with mainly dry weather. A couple of isolated showers will still be possible, however these will favor our interior zones especially near Lake Okeechobee. Afternoon temperatures will continue to run 5-7° above average as they climb into the middle 80s. Beaches and coastal locations will be a few points cooler due to the development of the west coast seabreeze.

Patchy fog will be a good bet once again tonight as humidity stays high and winds remain light. Overnight lows won't drop by much as they settle into the middle to upper 60s.

Due to the heat and the humidity a few stray showers can't be ruled out for Tuesday as highs remain in the lower to middle 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. By mid week, we'll be tracking another weather system that will increase our cloud cover and up our rain chances beginning Wednesday. We'll also see temperatures take a slight dip as they cool into the 70s for daytime highs and the upper 50s for overnight lows. A few widely scattered showers will continue through Friday with a drying trend as we head into next weekend. Return to index of stories...
