Saying he wanted to be "at one with the monkeys," a man stripped down to his boxer shorts, scaled a high fence and jumped into the Bronx Zoo's gorilla exhibit, police said. A quick-thinking zoo employee was able to herd the gorillas into their feeding cages before the man, identified as 32-year-old Peter Vetique, could come near them. "There was no physical contact between the two species," said Sgt. Andrew McInnis, a police spokesman.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell was all smiles when she turned up unexpectedly on the Dolce & Gabbana catwalk, a day after her much publicized sentencing on charges of "air rage." We call it unexpected because it was men's fashion week, after all. The lone female in this show, the former Victoria's Secret model appeared toward the end in a black bra, a pair of boxer shorts and black-and-white Japanese print bathrobe, while music from N.E.R.D. blared. Was it an attempt to immediately rehab her image?

A Louisiana man was released from the state penitentiary Friday after spending nearly half his life behind bars for a rape that DNA evidence now shows he did not commit. Calvin Willis was convicted of the 1981 rape of a 10-year-old girl in Shreveport and sentenced to life without possibility of parole. Willis, 45, has always maintained his innocence. "I feel great about getting out of prison," Willis said in a telephone interview shortly before he was released from Angola State Penitentiary.

A 25-year-old man has been found guilty of fatally stabbing the son of a Japanese filmmaker in a Beverly Hills carport in 2010, a crime that prosecutors claim was fueled by the belief that the victim had forced the man's girlfriend into prostitution and pornography shoots. Scott Barker was also convicted Tuesday, after less than a day of deliberations, of two sentencing enhancements: lying in wait and using a knife in the commission of a crime. Barker faces life in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 9. "I'm really disappointed," said Barker's attorney, Bradley Brunon, moments after the verdict.

One of the most amazing illusions in "Forrest Gump," a movie chock-full of special effects that opened Wednesday, has nothing to do with old newsreel footage--but with Gary Sinise playing a Vietnam veteran with both legs amputated. Sinise, 39, who has both legs, surprised even himself with his performance as Lt. Dan, a cocky Army officer who is wounded in the Vietnam War, losing both legs.

A killer who broke out of Texas' most secure prison and fled nearly naked into the surrounding swamps was captured, two days later, hiding in a tree. Clifford Jones, 33, was wearing only boxer shorts and offered no resistance. Warden Rick Thaler said his only noticeable injuries were scratches and insect bites.
