    It was actually a Republic Airlines E170 (source: a simple google search). (operated as United Express 3750). Considering there's no mention of this on aviation message boards, it's a non-event. Probably just had non-responsive nose wheel steering or a braking issue after landing.

    And I love the stock footage of UA airplanes at SFO. UA flies neither one of those types (767 or 787) to RDU.
