Riding the hood after a purse snatching

If someone took your purse or other valuables from you, would you jump on the hood of their getaway car? We'll talk to a woman who did just that.

Also tonight, a strong earthquake shakes Japan, but there's no tsunami threat to Hawaii ... a Waimanalo man remains in critical condition after a moped crash ... and we'll have more reaction to the death of former First Lady Betty Ford.

How's the surf? Malika Dudley will have the answer to that question and the rest of the weekend forecast. And Chris Tanaka explains why a surf meet is being called a "fish fry" in sports.

Lisa Kubota is off tonight, so Teri Okita will be at the desk for Hawaii News Now this evening. Please join us.
